Customer Reviews for Polk Audio Signature Series S60 American Hi-Fi Home Theater Large Tower Speaker
Your sound from them will depend on your source and
amps or AVR. I am using a Denon AVR X1200W.
Moderate powered AVR running 5 channels but
use 4 for music.
These speakers replaced an entry pair of horn speakers
that had dual 6&1/2 woofers from a major manufacturer.
There is more technology built into these speakers and
the crossover is better.
I understand these are really a 2.5 way crossover speaker
with the top driver extending higher to mate with the tweeter.
The 3---6&1/2 drivers deliver a big sound because they're
coupled to the Polk Powerport located at the bottom of this
speaker. This makes for easier placement in your room since
you do not have to worry about ports and walls. The Powerport
controls the bass very well and allows this speaker to play very low
without airchuffing or other port noises. If you like clear deep bass,
this speaker delivers. Even though I have a 12 inch sub, I have
chosen not to use it and do not miss it at all. That's something you'll have to decide at home but I'd say listen for a week or two without one
to hear what these well designed speakers can do.
In the mid and high end these have a very good presence to blend with the power of the low end. They are crystal clear and have shown no signs of strain to hit the sounds that I have played through them.
As I said, it will depend on what you feed into them--it will come out through these speakers.
Instruments sound right. Drums are deep and powerful. Guitars and mandolins sound clear and sharp with tone and depth you'd expect from a first rate speaker. Vocals are clear without strain and sibilance.
The sound from these Polk's are better than my last set of speakers that cost the same amount of money. YMMV
The are fairly large and deep and have magnetic grills--very nice.
They have a high Wife Acceptance Factor--attractive cabinets---curved with a nice vinyl finish--not cheesy.
The S60 is the Flagship of the Signature Line so the Bass-Mid drivers are a little better than the other ones in the Signature Line.
This is a speaker worth serious consideration.
