Quality is very good for the size of the speakers.
AJ Nagurney
I have been very pleased with the sound these speakers produce from crisp highs to clear and punchy bass.

These have to be one of the best low-budget speakers that you can buy.

Perhaps I was expecting too much. I read the reviews on the R15 and expected this would be similar - perhaps the R15s would live up to their rating (currently 4.5) and the description of "superior detail". However, I found these merely OK. Pretty good bass (these have the bass port pointing back, whereas the bass port in the R15s point forward) but muddled in the mids and highs, denying good definition of guitar chords and "waterdrop" effects, for instance. For reference, I'm using an Onkyo HT-R520 receiver, 18-gauge wiring, and I'm comparing these to the original Onkyo main speakers that came in a home-theater package.

I was reluctant to buy speakers on the internet. I relied on the reviews available and I am very glad I chose these speakers. I have an older harman/kardon home theater receiver, speakers, and sub woofer. Two speakers went out and I needed substitutes. I was worried that these speakers were inexpensive and wouldn't perform, but the reviews were right on. Give these speakers a sub woofer and you will be totally happy with your surround sound. 5 stars for the price I paid for these speakers. These speakers are just as good as those twice their cost.

I got these for fronts to make an RM6750 set 7.1 surround. It's hard to believe when I'm listening that I paid what I did. A CD through just these two and the sub woofer totally works for me. For context, I am a medium audiophile, using this setup in a 14' square room with carpeting. Something I noticed after testing the 'upside down' theory I read about somewhere, the tweeters seem to project down a little. If below ear level the highs come through a little better if you flip them over. I could just be nuts though.

I agree with Mr. Gruen's review: at volume (not cranked, distorted - just 5/10ths) they get kinda muddy, lose their sheen and tinkle and sound like they politely have their hand over their mouth. Odd, but at low volume they actually sound fantastic - balanced, clear, bright-but-not-tinny. I'm compelled to adjust the treble up a few db to compensate the more I turn the knob.

They feel somewhat well built, a little hollow-sounding, although I haven't taken them apart to tell and frankly, since I have them hooked up and in place, I guess I don't want to know.

Don't bother trying for "loud" from these little guys. They'll start to sputter break up well before you can hurt your hearing. I suspect these were engineered specifically for surround applications as sides or backs - they're very non-intrusive that way.

I use them to augment ceiling mounted stereo-only speakers, feeding TV, CD's and XM Radio through a wonderfully quiet and simple 15 year old 100watt/per Yamaha reciever. When I light up the whole stystem: kitchen, great room, dining, patio (through a Sima balancer), they do the job sufficient enough to get three stars.

Note that stereo-only TV augmentation is very good - it's CD's and XM that sound a little muddy.

I got these speakers on sale. I use them for bookshelf speakers in an apartment where listening at top volume is rarely an option. I have been very pleased with the sound these speakers produce from crisp highs to clear and punchy bass. I have no regrets about buying these speakers.

I got these speakers from fry's website delivered for $60 bucks, they are my front l and r speaker currently with plans to move them to the rears when i get floor standing speakers. But I must say I am very happy with these, they are currently plugged into a Logitech computer receiver and these baby's really pump. The finish of the speakers and build quality is very nice as well.

I added these Polk R150 bookshelf speakers to my living room, powered them with an inexpensive miniature T-amp (Lepai Tripath TA2020 Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Amplifier), and added an old powered subwoofer to complete a basic stereo system for watching TV, movies, and listening to music.

Compared to my old Sony satellite speaker surround system, the improvement is profound. It took some fooling around with speaker placement to get a full sound stage and good frequency response through the range, but the effort was worth it. For a while I thought about returning these and buying floor standing speakers instead, even though I really don't have room for them. I'm glad I didn't because the sound I'm getting now is perfect. Realistic sound effects, clear instrument separation, open and involving background music, the improvement is easily as great as replacing a blurry old CRT tv with a nice HD Plasma screen.

For about two hundred dollars, you can buy these speakers, amp, a powered sub, and some decent cables. These parts ad up to a great sounding, punchy, and remarkably detailed system. I would pit this setup against systems costing well over $1,000 without hesitation.

These Very Well Could Be The BEST "Budget" Speakers Ever Made.

I am using a Pair for my Font Left and Right(With a Polk CSR Center Channel Speaker).
I will move these to another position when I can put together a 7.1 system.

The bass is slightly lacking but hey look at the size and price.The mids and Polks Tweeters Provide Immersive Sounds for Both Home Theater and Stereo Listening.

They Sound Like they cost at least twice their price.So what others dont know when they hear a movie using these as the front speakers wont hurt them.
Normally the comment is incredible sound,what did you pay for the front speakers(Including the Center)($500-$600.00)?I Just smile when I tell them all 3 speakers were under $200.00.

These R150's will be in my Home Theater For A LONG TIME To Come.
