Polk Audio Speakers -Building an Affordable Home Theater: (3.3)

Polk Audio is another reputable company for home audio.  I was unable to find any all speakers included in a package made by Polk Audio but I'll show you here how you can purchase speakers a little at a time to cut down on costs.


Polk Audio R300 Tower Speakers

Now when buying a little at a time a receiver is required first, then fronts a center next.  Here are Polk Audio R300s which you could buy as fronts and rears or you could put bookshelves in the back.  These are excellent speakers that are priced at anywhere from around $130usd a pair at the cheapest I could find.  If you chose to purchase four as fronts and rears it would be around $260usd (at that price I would recommend it). They are built with a 6.5" mineral-filled polymer woofer and a 3/4" silk/polymer composite tweeter driver.






Polk Audio TSi CS10

As I explained before, if you`re buying pieces the center channel that could match the above speakers would be the Polk Audio TSi CS10 which I found out there anywhere from $79.99usd.  This center channel is made up of  Two 5 ¼” Bi-Laminate Composite drivers, and a  1" (25mm) Fabric/Polymer Composite Dome Tweeter.   



Polk Audio R150 Bookshelves
   
Now If you choose to put bookshelves in the rear you can use these.  Now these the price I found as low as $98usd a pair.  These also are built with 1 5.25" mineral-filled polymer woofer and 1 3/4" silk tweeter.Now I have a pair of these in one of my systems as rears and theyre great speakers for rears or a 7th channel on a 5.1 system.  I would never use them as fronts, they lack the ability to make a range of bass.




Now as you can see here from the pricing, you could easily purchase all these speakers to create a  5 channel speaker system for around $500 make that $250.(It appears Amazon.com is having an awesome sale. I'm buying some for a rainy day). Polk Audio is a brand I know has quite a following.  After purchasing these a good subwoofer is all you need.  For those of you who have noticed. Its missing a subwoofer.  Theres a few subs to choose from if you look in the Hardware section here.(Right side of the page-"Hardware" drop down box)
