I've had the R50's for several months now and have been very happy with them. They do need to be broken in but they really warm up after a few weeks of listening. They put out a really well balanced sound and could rival tower speakers that cost double or triple the price. Great highs, mids and lows. If your looking for deep bass, you're going to want to add a subwoofer. They do fairly well on their own but 6.5" drivers can only pack so much of a punch.
I'm not an expert, but for the price you cant beat these. I set these up for my home theatre sytem and paired the up with a set of T50's, a centre speaker and a sub. Amazing sound for both movies and music. The clarity at all levels a great. When I want to I can shake the walls.
I had a freind come over that is a music guy and he was totally impress with all aspects of the sound on these.
All be adding a pair shortly to fill out my 7.1 surround.
got them on sale the sound is grate
Bought these on a great sale and I'm really enjoying them. They have enough bass for me, but at the price I got them, I could still add some more bass if I need to.
We purchased a pair of Polk R50 tower speakers from Future Shop (later switched to Best Buy) August 2002 and have been using them almost daily since. These speakers only sound better with time, and right out of the box they're impressive. For the price, they're tough to beat. On sale? You just can't go wrong with these. The ONLY issue is that they've overpowered my other surrounds, so now I'll have to replace those with other R-series Polk speakers.
nice quality and sound for the price i paid....only bad thing was no speaker wires came with the speakers
This is the first time I tried Tower speakers. These speakers delivers amazing sound with great Bass. Just close your eyes and purchase it.
The output is amazing. You don't need to have a separate Sub Woofer. It is a great deal.
Since everyone else likes it I think that I might like it. I hope I like it. I didn't even buy it.
Très beau disign et qualite de son impeccable.
Donne de la personnalité à mon salon.
Je l'ai connecté à mon recepteur Pioneer VSX-S520 et je suis agreablement surpris par le résultat.
Je recommande vivement
I matched t 50 with t15 & the biggest sub Polk makes my walls shake now I have to move because my neighbours complain
These speakers are very good, excellent bass and looks great.
Great value for my money.
I think these are great. Not an audiophile but these sound noticeably better than old hand me downs that were supposed to be not bad.
This speakers are fantastics , the bass is really strong.
OMG i found exactly what I was looking for in the Polk Audio R50 speakers,great buy online and easy to set up Great Sound love them.
I went shopping online with a low budget for a specific purpose in mind, a single speaker with all sound ranges. I found exactly what I was looking for in the Polk Audio R50. It works very well alone in mono, and when I paired up a couple of mid range speakers to the other channel, it is more than I had hoped.
OMG what a perfect sounding speaker if you are thinking about replacing your speakers go with these speakers, you will NOT be disappointed what so ever!!
This speaker requires additional hardware to work properly. Does not come with clear instructions, and there's no how-to video on polkaudio.com or youtube that guides the user to set it up.
Not recommended for novice users.
Bought these on sale, was worth every penny. Sound quality is amazing
expensive but worth it.
i got these speakers about a week ago and got them home, unbox them and got a name plate on one speaker, not on the speaker, so i called POLK AUDIO and told them my situation and when the looked up the R50 speakers, i was told that these speakers were not manufactured since 2001, that is 15 years ago and there is no way to get a name plate, this is what you get from BESTBUY now, warehouse stuff
Love these speakers have had them for a year now they sound great. Bass is awsome do not see the use of subwoffer but could use a bit more midrange (for the price iI paid for it is great). I am runnig these off of a Marantz 2238B stereo amplifier which yes can get any speaker to sound great but i would have say that this pair are pretty good so far. If you are on a very tight budget and need a good pair of speakers these are the ones you need. (only working these in stereo mode movies and music).
Sound quality is clear and crisp. They have a wide range from low to high frequencies. Great look and design of the low priced speaker. I would have paid even more for these speakers, however the price on sale was phenomenal and too good a price to pass on. A terrific value for the price!!!
Not a bad speaker for the price sound is pretty good. have them hooked up to my surround sound good sound for movies.
I bought these as a door crasher on Black Friday. I figured that these would sound pretty good based on recent reviews and the Polk reputation. These are great speakers ,attractive and they really handle the wattage. I would suggest these to anyone....John
Not a bad speaker..good sound.. great price worth the sale price
Sound is NOT ACCURATE. Highs are too bright, dropped mid-range. Good bass.
I bought these speakers on a boxing day deal. The treble and mid range are great. The bass is fairly good considering that they only have 2, 6.5 drivers, but this is easily remedied with a nice sub. I'm running them off a newly bought Yamaha sound receiver and with this combination they sound almost perfect.. Thank you for your time.
I ordered these on line and was pleasantly surprised how quickly they arrived at the home. Upon opening the boxes, noted no transit damage at all. I purchased these to replace an older set that I have had for years and am truly satisfied with the quality of sound given their design.
Great speakers worth the money
I purchased the speakers on sale.
I have them as front speakers and they have a full and crisp sound with an articulate sounding base not requiring a separate woofer.
They are somewhat larger then the newer line of speakers but they look nice and are well worth the money.
I have the set as by back speaker system, great sound ! Look nice & fit into decor nicely
Good speakers. Clean audio and very high quality construction. I run them on an amplifier capable of 300 watts per channel.
The issue is that they are VERY bright sounding. You need to pump the volume to that nice clean bass, but when you do, the highs are out of control, way too lound. While this can be corrected by equalization this is not the way to achieve the sound you want.... Get speakers that are in the ballpark of what you're looking for and equalize to tweak, not to correct for a poor speaker choice.
This is the "polk" sound, generally great for rock music, some classical and movies, but these speakers IMO are not a good choice for bassheads, electronic music, or people who generally like a warmer, more bassy presentation.
Strangely, the smaller/older model of these, the R30s, have a far more balanced/warm sound. Probably different tweeter, the single woofer and differences in crossover and cabinet construction play a part. At lower volumes (normal listening level), the R30s have a much more balanced/warmer sound.
I will return these and try the Boston Acoustics towers that are being sold right now.
Amazing sound, look great. Crystal clear. More than enough power.
Very nice clean crisp sound..very good sounding speakers.
I was pleasantly surprised with these towers. They have great high, mid, and even better low extension. You could almost get away without a subwoofer in a moderately sized room. I have only put around 40 hours on these so far, but they continue to impress with anything from movies, video games, to music. Great speakers!
awesome sound. dont even need a subwoofer unless you want one. hooked up to pioneer receiver and sounds wicked. good box day deal.
I bought these speakers on boxing day and I am very satisfied with the sound. The quality of the speakers are amazing. I highly recommend these speakers.
Plugged them in to my Technics receiver, put on some vinyl and the speakers rocked, great buy for the price really happy.
These speakers were bought with a pioneer receiver and together make up my first proper stereo system (so keep in mind that I'm comparing it to my old bookshelf stereo). Overall, I'm very impressed with the sound. The speakers also look great - even better than the website pictures. The only disappointment is the way the speaker wires insert at the back of the speakers. Instead of pushing down on a knob and basically pinching them in, you have to screw a piece down onto the speaker wire. Not only is it a pain but it falls out pretty easily if you move the speakers so I've had to re-do it a few times. But that's the only complaint - given the great boxing day deal I got and the awesome sound, I'm really happy with this purchase.
I got these on boxing day for a pretty good deal. I have them set up with an old analogue amp and a Polk PSW108 I just gotand they sound pretty awesome. One of the speakers feet were a little offset giving it an awkward lean, but that was easily fixed with a few extra foot pads. Compared to higher quality speaker towers they honestly aren't that great but I got more than what I paid for and exactly what I needed!
P.S. my parents hate me now.
Great deal for the quality! Delivery service needs to be improved
picked up a set during boxing week , good deal and they sound great , great bass
they light up the room for sure
