Better than expected - This is the best Center I have ever had - We use it in my large living area and has made a world of difference, Both the vocal for TV audio as well as music - outstanding - use with a Denon AVR-S900w 7.2 - Clear
Update: 2/2016 - Speaker just keeps getting better. great clarity and voice. Will update as time goes by.

Very good center channel speaker for movies. A bit in your face for music. But God made EQs for a reason. Is it a Martin Logan Cinema? Be serious. But for the money, I can't see a down side.

Let me start by saying I'm very selective of center channel speakers. To me, they are the most important speaker of the system as they do most of the work. When I decided some time ago that I wanted to upgrade my Polk center, I set off trialing several centers, including some that were thousands of dollars. With my system, I'm able to keep my existing center in place, and switch to a new center and do a direct comparison. I've never been satisfied until I found the PL-28. I could not believe the difference it made between it and my existing setup. After replaying several movie scenes that are excellent to test centers, I was shocked at sounds I was hearing that I could never hear before. This one is definitely a keeper, and what a great price at $169.

Keep in mind that this is taller, and maybe a little wider than most center channel speakers. I had to make custom adjustments to my shelf unit to get it to fit....but it's so worth it. Glad I read the positive reviews here and at AVSForum before purchasing.....they were all right...this is an amazing speaker!

Incredible! Installed in our home theater powered by an older RXV-657 Yamaha receiver. I ran the 'Auto' equlizer with the mic on a tripod at the center of the listening area. The horn made all the difference in the world for crystal clear vocals.

I got this speaker in two days after I ordered, it was packaged just right, double boxed. The PL-28II center speaker, I'm using the FH-65B for front left and right because I don't have room for tower speakers and PL-66 for surround.
My set up is powered by my TX-NR 818 and I have plenty of power to drive everything.
I just ran audyssey x32 speaker configuration,Audyssey set the fronts FH-65B speakers at 40Hz my center PL-28II is set at 90Hz , surrounds PL-66 are at 120Hz and wides DV62si at 70Hz highs are Micca in wall speakers that are high above front left and right are almost to the ceiling. They are at 40Hz and the back speakers in the ceiling behind me set at 120Hz and of cource the subs are 120Hz .
Going to leave it like this for a week or so and then run audessy x32 again and see what it settles to after a so called break in.
The speaker sounds great.
I have my TX-NR 818 in listening Mode DTS Neo:X I go back and forth between that and Audyssey DSX. I've been reading about reference level they say to listen at 0db but it much too loud -15 seems to be more or should I say loud enough.

Update
TX-NR
I just moved the speakers around I moved the FH-65s to the wides the PL-66s to front mains and using the DV62si as surrounds and of course the PL-28II AS THE CENTER. The PL-66s match beautifully with the PL-28II and the from three speakers are very amazing, and the sound is incredibly great. My Speaker configuration came in after running audyssey front 100Hz center 90Hz surround 70Hz wide 40Hz high 40Hz surround back 120Hz. So there you have it I'm going to give this a try for a week and run audyssey once again and see what I come up with after a good break in.....

I did a lot of research before purchasing this (Along with an Acoustech 15" sub and front channel speakers, PL-89), and I'm glad I finally decided on Acoustech for my living room sound system. The speakers sound great and are honestly a bit smaller than I thought. They look great as well and don't take up too much room. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for good speakers at a reasonable price.
