Helping someone search for a setup for their new entertainment area. Theyre not looking to spend a whole lot, so while they started by linking me on this system, thinking a system based on R150 (or T15 since those are easier to mount and it seems basically the same speaker) might be a better bet. The only issue seems to be that the CSR center speaker that Polk has as its recommended match seems to be gone just about everywhere (maybe discontinued?).


Ive tried to search for an answer but have had no luck. One of the suggested items popping up on online stores is the CS10. Would this be an acceptable match for this?

The CS10 is not the one you want.


The 15C is the correct matching speaker for the T15, and Amazon has it for around $120, I think.


The 150C would also be good, and matches the R150.


The R150 are only $75 per pair at Amazon.

Yeah, the price of the R150s is better, but the problem is they dont seem to be as easily mounted on a wall.

WRONG! Why do you try to give advice on stuff you don't know? The correct matching center is the CSR, so the OP is correct there.


The 15c or Monitor 15c is the correct matching center for the Polk Monitor 35b, 45b, 55t, and 65t.


While ot might work in this situation the Polk t15's bookshelves sound nothing like the monitor line. Different tweeter and midrange driver all together. That goes even for the older 30/40/50/60/70/cs1/cs2.

Any recommendation you might have for an alternative to the CSR since it seems to not be widely available?

Unfortunately this doesnt come directly from amazon, it comes from Rover Mall, which polk lists on its website as not having a factory warranty if you order from them.


So since my last post i put in an order a few days ago with audiogurus.com (as they seemed to be the only other place i could find this speaker, and they were listed on polk's site as an authorized reseller so i figured they were legit) and seem to have been met with silence (no shipping update, not answering calls) and reviews online seem to say people are getting massive delays from them and them often reporting in stock on their website when its actually backordered..


I know going with the direct match is the best solution, but it seems like this is just completely unavailable at any authorized source, and i have all the other components to the system already sourced (got T15s from best buy for 60/pair and the PSW10 sub)


If i were to cancel and go another route, which would be the better option?

Polk tsx 150c that i can get at best buy for 100 right now



or

Polk CS10 that i can also get for about $100 from amazon



And would the difference be that much between the matched system and not that i would clearly notice it? Im a relative newbie to this, having only had a HTiB setup in the past.
