Meanwhile, the PSW125 is very pricey for what you get. Consult with the Budget subwoofers discussions, opinions and questions thread
on the AVS subwoofer forum. You should be able to get something better for your money.
Finally, the Polk TSi and the Polk Monitors available at Newegg are different variation of the same speaker line with almost identical SQ, but generally cheaper. For example, the Polk Monitor 75T are $219

Thank you cel4145 abd eljaycanuck for your immediate and helpful feedback!!
Basically, according to what I now understand I may be losing the prestige of not owning a pair of TSI500 but I will not be losing much aggregated quality sound
Now based on your combined relevant feedback my plans have changed. I need to decide if I will now purchase:
A) a pair of TSI400 and a subwoofer for a special bargain
B) a pair of Polk Monitor 75T from Newegg ($209.00 each is a great deal- thanks for the tip!!!)
C) a pair of Polk Monitor 75T from Newegg and a center channel from newegg
I am researching (I welcome all comments) if newegg will permit me to purchase a Polk Audio New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker for $169.00 center channel to match the timbre of the Polk Monitor 75T. I do not really need the center channel for my listening needs but I will purchase the 25C if I receive a subwoofer for free.
$169.00 + $209.00 + $209.00 = $587.00 plus a subwoofer sounds like an awesome dream.
Before today, I was planning to purchase a pair of the TSI500 but I found out today that Polk corporation with give you a free subwoofer valued at $300.00 that can be applied to another Polk subwoofer if I purchase at least $499.00 of qualifing Polk equipment. Amazon and Crutchfield advertise this offer for Polk. Expires Feb 23.
I can purchase a pair of the TSI400 ($299.00 each or less) and get a PSW125 for $49.99 ($349.99 - $300.00).
I hope the Polk Audio New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker works with the Polk 75T. Information was gathered on a thread from the web. (I welcome all comments)
