High Efficiency, High Performance.
High efficiency design allows the Monitor Series to reveal the classic Polk sound (open, spacious and clear) even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers.
1-inch (25mm) fabric/polymer composite Dynamic Balance® dome tweeter with powerful neodymium magnet structure delivers clear and detailed high frequency response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments.
5 1/4-inch bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance driver is lightweight and stiff with good damping for high efficiency, excellent bass and midrange clarity with lower distortion.
Small-diameter driver design delivers wide dispersion, better mid-range, and more detailed bass response for an open, "box-less" three-dimensional sound.
Non-resonant all-MDF enclosure construction with 3/4-thick baffles ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality.
Crossovers use mylar bypass capacitors for more detailed high frequencies.
Dual 5-way binding post connectors, allowing for more secure hook-up options, as well as bi-wiring and bi-amping flexibility.
Monitor Series speakers are modern living accessories that make a stylish statement in either black or cherry wood grain finish, with Titanium faces.
Built-in keyhole wall mounting brackets for strong, secure on-wall mounting with no added brackets to buy.
Critically tuned flared port minimizes port noise (chuffing) for good low frequency extension with low distortion, resulting in natural, full-bodied sound with rich bass.
All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

They image wonderfully!
I'm being picky here, but I don't like the 5-way binding posts. I prefer the ones on the LSiM's, and my Paradigm's. They are still better than those of similar price, however.
I'm extremely happy with the Polk Monitor 30II speakers. These are very smooth sounding monitors, and very efficient speakers. I currently have two pairs of these, in a bedroom and an office setup, and both sets are running in a bi-wire configuration off of Tripath amplifiers (T-amps) which sound the best when paired with efficient speakers - these are a great match! This is my first Polk Audio product as my reference system utilizes Paradigm Studio 100's (v.3). But, these Polks are surprising. They are very warm, non-fatiguing, and image spectacularly! They are everything I've wanted in a monitor speaker, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Very clean and warm sound with great imaging and an elgant looking speaker
I bought a pair of the Monitor 30II for my bedroom and am very pleased with them. I've got them hooked up to an Onkyo receiver and a small Pioneer sub. I was very impressed with the clarity, imaging, and balance of these little speakers. The subwoofer helps, but I want to add a Polk sub to them to further improve my system. The Sub that I have doesn't have any adjustments on it, so I'm limited to using the bass adjustment on the receiver. The Polks still sound amazing. I've been a Polk fan for 25 years and still have my old Monitor 7's paired with Polk center and surrounds and an MK sub for my home theater system. Polks are simply amazing and I've never had any issues with them.
