About the Product
The name Monitor is special to Polk. The original Polk Monitor Series, produced in the mid-1970s, ushered in the modern loudspeaker era by setting the standard for performance and value. The original Monitor Series is the line that made Polk famous with its simple, sturdy construction, clear, accurate sound, powerful bass and superior imaging all at a price that made great sound available to everyone. The reborn Monitor Series is classic Polk: a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. They are highly efficient, so they can be driven easily by unpretentious receivers, and they are voice matched for lifelike surround sound environments. The Monitor Series boasts a stylish look that complements today's flat screen technology, with wood grain finishes and modern Titanium faces. Built for speed, sound and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.
Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II demonstrates impressive performance, even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers or receivers. Cascade Tapered Array technology for maximum bass output, precise imaging and detailed midrange response.

What customers say about "Audio"
Polk Audio Monitor 60 Series II Floorstanding Speaker
  • The Polk Monitor series is very impressive, lots of high quality sound at a price a regular working man can afford.
  • Awesome, detailed reproduction of midrange sounds, at a price a working class like me can afford. Doubles the joy of listening music and soundtracks. Love it.
  • These speakers are great sounding in the highs and mid frequencies, bass is just ok. Subwoofer is a must if these are your main speakers to get a good soundstage.
  • Bass impact is not that great while watching movies, it is not different then Polk Audio Monitor-30 Bookshelf Speakers and can't use it as stand alone floor speakers as well.
  • These speakers have a very clear sound in mid & bass but the bass has no punch what so ever a pair of boom box speakers would project better the tweeters are more harsh than crisp & lose all clarity even at low low volume when listening to alot of music
Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II Tower Speaker (Black, Single)
  • These speakers produce a very natural and superbly balanced sound.
  • The bi-amping did make a substantial sound difference, especially with opening up the high-end frequency range.
  • These speakers really delivery a full sound and outstanding performance! The dynamic is great doesn't matter the volume.
  • The sound is full and rich. Not too much or too little. Highs are clear but not piercing. Mids and lows are smooth and nice full sound.
  • The sound quality was phenomenal. Everything was so tight. The vocals, guitars, bass, drums/cymbals, keyboards made me feel as if I was in the studio or at a live performance.

What customers say about "Features"
Polk Audio Monitor 60 Series II Floorstanding Speaker
  • Quality of the sound holds up from barely audible to loud enough and clear enough to hear anywhere in the house (this feature is not appreciated by everybody).
  • Aesthetic features is amazing and the removable grill adds more to the speaker itself.
  • Sound quality is amazing. after connecting to my Yamaha receiver it sounded heavenly.
  • A great bang for the buck plus they look great with or without the grill
  • These loudspeakers also work well as front mains of a home theater setup when paired with a subwoofer, a good center, surrounds, and a receiver that can belt out some current.
Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II Tower Speaker (Black, Single)
  • This is the best speaker I've ever heard, it's amazing the price is so good, I think I'll get another pair too, the sound quality is very crisp, and you do NOT need a subwoofer.
  • Bass is great and clarity can't be better. Highs are pretty clear and well spread through the room.
  • These speakers are great. I have only had them for about a week so far, but I am very satisfied.
  • This works great. They get way too loud for my room when cranked up high but they have no problem handling the load. No hint of distortion.
  • Great sound. Crisp highs and excellent bass. Crossover seems to work well also.
