Bottom Line:   
Beautiful crisp highs, smoothe midrange and nice deep rich bass. I had these speakers for three years and absolutely love them. With any pair of speakers proper setup is the key and these are no exception. I use them for two channel audio and surround sound , without a subwoofer and they sound incredible. I paid 1k direct from polk audio and they were in new condition. Best audio buy i ever had period. I listen to all types of music and yet to find a weakness anywhere.

Bottom Line:   
These could be the audio value of the century. Available from Polk Direct on eBay for less than $1000. Very accurate speakers! Do a google search. You won't find many people who don't like these speakers. Many people prefer the LSi15 that has a non powered woofer. Other than that decision to make either the LSi15 or 25 will make great two channel speakers.

Bottom Line:   
The lsi25 has no midrange and therefore no voice. It is a hollow sounding speaker, I unfortunately bought these over the internet and did not listen to them first. All the other reviewers on this site clearly have no ear. Please, for the love of God, do not buy this speaker.

Bottom Line:   
After having these speakers for almost three months I can give my review. they are a great speaker. Many may prefer the lsi15 or lsi9 with sub over these. well for half the price of the lsi25 you can have an awesome speaker system. I bought my lsi25 from polk direct for less than 1000.00 in new condition. At that price these are the speaker buys of the century. I already have the lsi9 and the lsi15 so I can compare them all and boy do I . the lsi15 is the most neutral sounding but i find the bass a little on the light side. If placement is an issue the lsi9 with a sub may be easier to set up but if room permits the lsi25 is the way to go. They have the top end the lsi is famous for and have a nice bottom end which is adjusted properly sounds nice and full. the lsi25 dont require as much power to drive them as do the 9's or the 15's also. I think many people like to overemphasize the bass on powered subs so they have that earth shaking bass. That is great for movies but not for music. The powered subs should be felt and should not overpower the music. They give plenty of bass if adjusted properly and don't sound boomy. Although all three pairs are awesome each their own, I listen to the lsi25 the most, they just have the fullest sound in my opinion. I power them with an aragon amplifier and acurus preamp. I also have a pair of Magnepan 1.6 speakers which are also great speakers. They are a little more revealing and detailed than the polks but not as versatile as the polks as types of music you can play on them. The lsi25 work the best for me and that is what it all boils down to.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these new from a local shop and set them up side by side for a comparison with my vinatge Polk SDA1C's. It didn't take long to hear how amazing the tweeter is on the LSi 25. This tweeter design has so much detail that it makes the older Polks sound veiled and narrow, and I know they didn't sound like that before the LSi25 came through the doors. The LSi 25 does require some tweaking to get the bass to fit in with this incredible tweeter. Female voices played from SACD sources leave one's ears looking for more.
One specific difference is the speed and dynamics of the music played through the LSi 25 take you on an emotional ride where in comparison to the older polks, just never got off the ground. These babies are power hungry, I'm using 400w a side at 4ohms!

Polk Audio LSi25 vs Klipsch RF-83

Which would you recommend to one who prefers a "brighter" or "crisper" sound? I realize speaker sound preference is subjective. Therefore, consider this is a "generally speaking" type of question.

Polk LSi25 speakers, need help

Anyone have comments on this speaker. I auditioned them at the local stereo shop using Denon 4806 (which I own) and they sounded very good. But these guys are expensive. Is there any other good speakers that really bring the sound stage out of the box and have good detail and clarity for around $250 ... Read More »
