Fantastic and painless warranty service. In September the center speaker developed some crackle. I put off for a couple weeks dealing with it because normally dealing with audio or electronics warranty are a nightmare. Not in this case! I contacted them via email, described the problem and my troubleshooting steps, and waited. A couple hours later I received a request regarding where I purchased the speakers. I responded, they sent me an address and instructed me to ship it to their repair facility in CA. I shipped it out on Tuesday morning along with a copy of my Amazon receipt, copies of my email correspondence, and a cover letter. They received it Friday afternoon. Monday morning at 9:30 AM (their time!) I received an email stating they replaced the mid-range driver, and asking where would I like it shipped! They had it and repaired it in less than a business day, and they shipped it out the next morning. I received it 7 days later, and it works as good as new. Polk's quality and customer service has made me a lifetime customer.
Feeling like I have a little more control over my parts selection, I paired this with a Yamaha RX-V473. Its a pretty good combination and works well to fill my space. It can get very loud, louder than I will normally ever be allowed to play it. Sure I could spend more money on bigger and better speakers, but why bother when I have a wife who will just keep telling me to turn it down? Or why bother when I have a little baby who I don't want to scare and blow out her little ears so young? This is a great compromise for a decent price. Yes it can get loud, yes it sound clear and the sub will fill out the bass that you can't get from the satellite speakers. You just have to play with the levels a bit and toy with the receiver.
The only thing I didn't like is the fact there are spring clips on these speakers. I could not get the speaker wires in them (12 gauge in wall monoprice cabling). I had to separate some strands at the end of the wires and cut off some to make it thinner. Also if you get pin style banana plugs from Monoprice, they are too big as they don't fit all the way in and they end up touching each other and creating a short. So just use regular bare wire in the clips and if your have too high of a gauge wire, you will have to thin the tip out a bit with a wire cutter.
I did also get the RCA Y- audio cable for the sub. You don't need it to run, but I think that maybe you do get slightly more bass boost with it. Previously I just ran the subwoofer out from receiver to just the L audio input. For low volume listening, sometimes I do have to turn my volume up a little more (receiver displays around -30 dB or lower) for the sub to kick in... then once its kicked in you can turn the volume back down. This is because the audio level has to hit the sub at a certain amount for it to kick on. It shuts off automatically if no signal is detected for 15 minutes. There is an override switch but I keep mine in auto just because I don't need the amp power draw 24/7.
It does come with wall brackets and a screw in which you attach each speaker to the bracket. I would of preferred thumbscrews for easier speaker adjustment, but I guess you really only set it up once and then that's it. There is a small plate that the center channel sits on in front of my flat screen TV to keep the speaker flat and centered. You'll see the speakers are curved and have a piano black finish.
You will have to provide your own speaker cable, and some kind of hardware to mount the speaker bracket to the wall. When I finished my basement I put wall plates in each corner up high where the speaker wires come through a little hole. I just ended up using a longer screw through the speaker bracket into the bottom hole of the wall plate which is fastened to the electrical box behind the drywall. These speakers are light enough to do that, though normally you would likely use drywall screws or find a stud. With the screw hole in the bottom of the speaker, I'm sure you could mount it on speaker stands as well.
Anyway nice little system for the money. I sometimes with I got the Polk Blackstone TL1600 instead because it has true binding posts that would accept unmodified 12 gauge speaker wire. Though I keep telling myself this system works well and why spend $400 or more for the TL1600 when this is $250 (maybe less in the future) and I have a wife and baby where high volume listening is going to be limited? The savings better go towards things like baby formula in my case. But if YOU have the money and can justify the extra $150 and can play your music real loud.. get the TL1600. Otherwise this works great and save the cash for other things.
