    Default Home theater full of polk speakers

    Just wondering what are your thoughts on these speakers.

    Monitor 70's

    RM8's entire four speaker surround portion of a 7.1 setup.

    and CS10

    I have all of these now and have yet to set them up because I am working on buying a house so they are in storage. What do you all think of those speakers?

    Welcome to Club Polk!

    You might want to think about eventually upgrading your center to a CS2 (CS20). The RM8s are OK for now. But you may want to go with larger surrounds at some point because you would then be able to lower your sub crossover to 80hz which is better for HT.

    BTW...do you have a sub?

    If you're on a budget, I'd go with a Polk PSW 505 for 200+ new! Hard to beat at that price. If you have 500 or more to spend there are 'better'!
