Polk TSi300 - TSx150C or CS10 Center
 
I am planning to purchase Polk TSi300 speakers for front L & R of my 7 channel home theater system. Was thinking about the TSx150C center speaker, but reading the CS10 may be a better "match". Is the TSx150C worth the extra $100 ?

No I don't think it's worth it..

The CS1, CS10, Monitor 15C and Tsx150 are essentially the same speaker in different cabinets. The CS1 is the oldest model and TSi150 the newest.

me preference would be to get the one that matches your mains. if you have the tsi300's, go with the cs10 or cs20 center. if for no other reason, it will match aesthetically.

IMO the CS10 is not a very good speaker.

You would be well-advised to get a better one.

The TSX150C is $178 from Amazon,so the extra cost only seems to be about $70.

Thanks all - I really appreciate your input. No decision yet, but you have helped me.

The CS10 is the matching center and is better on all fronts than the CS1.

The TSx150c is for TSx Series. Being that Polk's TSx series mellowed out some of the brightness compared to the TSi I would go with matching center, the CS10.

You can get manufacturer refurbished CS10's from Polk's ebay store for $90 shipped
