Hi I am new to the game here as far as home audio systems. I spent a few days researching these forums which led me to my decision to get the Yamaha RX-473 and the Polk Monitor 70 Series 2 floorstanding speakers (got a steal on Newegg).

The next step is to add a center speaker and sub. I will wait to add the surround speakers for a couple months.

Any suggestions would help. I am not interested in cheap speakers but don't want to spend a fortune while getting some solid speakers that I can be proud of and will last a long time. I hope to spend around $300-$400 for both speakers. $300 would be great.

My initial thoughts were to go with a Polk CS2 Series II Center and Polk PSW10 or PSW505 Sub to keep it in the Polk family but maybe there are some better options too.

Any help/recommendations for both a new sub woofer and a center speaker that would go well with my current setup would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

-Mike

The CS2 center would be the right speaker for your 70's. The PSW505 on sale for under $200 would put you at 3 bills. A better sub when on sale at newegg would be the Klipsch RW-12D at 3 bills putting you at your max of $400.
The CS2 might be on sale now.

Well, the CS2 price went up from $99. Only the cherry is on sale for $110.

The CS2 is available for $99 after a $50 instant rebate at newegg until tomorrow. So I can still get it for that price (the black one).

Go for it. It's the perfect match for the 70's and a great CC especially for the price. I'd wait for the Kilpsch to go on sale if you have the patience. Don't get the PSW10, it hardly qualifies as a subwoofer.

Great it has been ordered. Thank you for your help. If anyone else has any recommendations for a sub I would love to hear them but that Klipsch RW-12D seems to get great reviews.

Get 2 Polk 505's from amazon. I have 2 of these and 2 rw12d's in the same room. They both perform about the same in my room - very good!!
