What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Polk Audio R15 2-Way Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair, Black)
  • They are light weight so they will mount on the wall nicely.
  • The cost, size and weight of the Polk and the AR speakers are almost identical; however, in my opinion, these sound much better.
  • These little speakers are terrific. I replaced a pair of bulky Infinity speakers with these and the size difference alone made these appealing.
  • Great little speakers for the price. Clean attractive cabinet design with removable grill.
  • Wow, what nice sound from these little buggers! Usually most bookshelf speakers sound a little thin, but man these pack a wallop!

What customers say about "Audio"
Polk Audio R15 2-Way Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair, Black)
  • This is a great set of speakers for the price. They are nice and clear. They sound good at low and high volumes.
  • As the rear speakers, they complete the surround sound experience.
  • The Polk Audio R15 bookshelf speakers have a sweet sound. We placed them with another set of PA speakers to complete our living room surround sound system.
  • The clarity is really impressive for a speaker this size and price. It goes without saying that it will lack the bass of a larger model, but it's a superior quality sound. I'd buy them again in a heartbeat.
  • I use these for a stereo (2.0) and the sound is incredible. They are my only speakers in a 800 sq. ft. area and they fill the room with sound.
