    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these. I am building my first h/t setup and have a huge room that they have to go in. I found these online for $100 shipped for the pair. They are going to be run off an NAD T760. I know that Polk makes a quality product but will these be sufficient for the front channels for a 5.1 setup? Thanks in advance for your help.

    If you have a huge room, I don't think these guys will do it. How big is the room?

    They don't have much to offer in the low end department. For a entry level system, they are a very nice option, certainly worth $100. While clearly not Polk's best speaker, they are just fine for HT, less so for music. Just make sure you have a decent sub to fill out the aural spectrum.

    thanks, the room is 14x22x15h. I was going to add a sub and a center channel with them to start. The amp is not very powerful, 60 wpc. Thanks for the insight, I think I might go this route to start with. My biggest thing is I listen to satellite radio quite a bit, I am not much of a TV guy unless it is sports but I love my music and movies.

    They should be adequate for sound in that room and the price is good enough that it wouldn't be a big loss if they weren't enough. As long as you aren't looking for reference/extreme sound levels, I think you'll be fine.
