Does anyone know of a good surround speaker from Polk that will compliment my Polk Monitor 50's and Polk CS2 Cherry Speakers? I was hoping to find a Surround in Cherry but have had no luck. I can't go with the Monitor 30's because they are to large and I'm hoping to find a good Polk that is your standard surround size. Thanks for reading.

There is no 'standard' size for surrounds. My surrounds are 11-1/2" x 17-1/2" x 12-1/4". Larger than most.


Go shopping for a pair of small speakers. The brand isn't important for surrounds as long as they have quality sound. Keep in mind small speakers are limited in what they can do sound quality wise. I'd look for a 2 way speaker. There are lots of small speakers that have only one driver. Sound quality will suffer with only one driver.

for movie audio tracts, the surrounds are carrying only very limited amounts of audio information, so just about any decent speakers will work fine. If you want to stay with Polk, check out Polk Atrium 45 speakers from the "Polk Audio Direct" ebay store or ebay seller "polkdirect"

So just found out that my order was cancelled from Audiophile liquidators b/c the energy C-50's are out of stock. Sucks. Anyone know where I can find these at a good price in Cherry? My google results are not that good.

Apparently it's kind of hard to find a cherry surround and I'm having no luck. I'd be willing to pay $200 for a pair but that's about it. Not sure what else to do might have to settle for black.

since the surrounds are not in your immediate visual area ( kind of detatched from the main front focal point of your system ) black surrounds really won't be an issue.
