200 bucks from the manufactuers site. Never heard of these, and they don't seem to focus on speakers. Anyone ever heard these? Are they on par with Fluance? Better? Worse? I have been hoping to get Revel C-series speakers for ages now, and I don't think I will ever have the money so I am getting pretty close to considering a set of fluance...

They are taking a page from Bose. No freq. response is listed, except you can't hear these. For this kind of money, I wouldn't expect a much. Generally you get what you pay for. These speakers are less than $20 ea.

Run for your life!!!


If your looking for a deal on speakers. Every once in awhile Fry's or Outpost run a Polk Audio deal for like $29-$49 for speakers. I would trust that before that e-bay add.

What type of Polk Audio speakers that go for $29-$49? Have a model number? Are they cube speakers or full range floor standing speakers?

I've seen these as low as $39.

And Polk R-30's for $39.95





You have to be patient and keep checking around.

OMG...they are awesome for the price and look and not forget to mention...quality from Polk. Does this price only available from Outpost.com or at any local Frys?


I read the reviews and most have problem with the tweeters on these speakers. Any idea?

That's really a good deal on those, $120 for the pair. I've heard those, they're not going to astound you but they will play with reasonable dynamics and can put out clear enough sound to work for movies and dialog, and work well if you're after an inexpensive home theater. I'm hesitant to lavish too much praise on the, because they aren't great, but you can do much, much worse.

Tweeters? Think about what your saying. For $59 bucks how can you go wrong?


I don't know if you can walk into a Fry's and get the same deal. I would call and see.



If you get them I want you to remember to tell me how you like them.

Look at what he was looking at on E-Bay. How can he go wrong. Other that have purchased them have been happy.

I've seen a surround set of R50s and their companion bookshelves (R20s as surrounds) and center working away daily duty in a home theater and putting out some reasonable volume for movies on weekend for the better part of 4 years with no problems so I wouldn't worry too much about it

Oh, wow. Yeah can't really go wrong with those but I'd want to make sure the impedance is as stated so you don't burn out your receiver. Even if the drivers fall out and the tweeter blows, you're not going to lose much.

I just called my Frys store in Southern CA and they have only the cherry color model R50 that goes for $199 each.....YES $199 each.


I love the black color better for the price on Outpost.com. I will get two of them.


Now I have another questions for you all out there....can i use these for surround as well? If so, I will get 4.
