Not much difference between the two, but both are very good bargains.

Driver units in RM6750 are 1/2 inch larger, and might extend a tad lower, but MCS100 tweeters are (IMHO) better.

The Boston Horizon system is a newer model than the Polk RM6750 if that matters.

I'd love to hear some additional opinions on these.


I currently am considering:


Polk RM6750

Boston MCS100

Energy Act6


They can all be had for under $225 shipped


I've done some searching and have been able to come up with the following threads, but none of which offer much comparison.


Can any one shed some light on the bext of these 3 systems?

I'd like to add another choice into this discussion...


The Speaker Company ACHT-200 5.1 Home Theater Speakers (just under $200)


How does it compare to the Polk RM6750 or Boston MCS100? They're all at a similar price point.


Any other recommendations for an inexpensive 5.1 set to go with my Onkyo 606 receiver? The system will be used for regular tv and movies on my 50-inch plasma. (After buying the tv, not much left in my budget for speakers!)

I have the Polk6750's and have been in love with them for going on 2 years. I've since upgraded the sub and moved the one that came with it upstairs. For the price, it's an excellent deal though!

Gary, I have no affiliation but I can tell you that if you google the speaker company set model number above you should see a pretty attractive coupon code pop up. We're talking less than half your budget, shipped. It's nuts.


Let's just say I went ahead and ordered two sets just to play with and unless the things are made of cardboard it seems impossible to go wrong at the price point. But tinkering is a hobby for me and I have no qualms about parting the things out or flipping them as needed so there is very little risk for me.


Otherwise, I'd recommend the Bostons. Both the Bostons and the Polks have fairly weak subs, but the Bostons will keep up better if you decide to up the sub later. They are just kinda fugly.

The MCS100 work well in small rooms, but I would avoid them like the plague for mid-large rooms. I have the MCS130 set, which contain larger speakers/sub, and I was happy with them. I say was because I recently got a little crazy with "upgraditis", I have them sitting in my closet, I would be willing to sell the 5 speakers for $200, I'm still using the sub.
