Bottom Line:   
Ok for mid to low end setup.
But they suck if you are running high power to the rears/sides.
Polk says they should be set to small, what a joke for a flagship speaker. Polk must think you only need to hear half the program from the side channels. Might as well go back to Pro Logic!
Worthless for SACD and DVD-A.
They went up in smoke as soon as started a track from a DVD-A which is a little hard on the side channels.
Back they go!!!!
The impedance is also too low for most receivers and may burn out channels. They are rated at 4ohm but I am sure they go down much lower at higher volumes.
As my Pioneer VSX Elite 49tx shut down as soon as I started to turn them up. Had to switch to a Bryston 4b to give them the current they need for such low impedance.
What happened to POLK they once made a pretty good product? Like the SRS line! Little chince one the drivers but overall a great product!
