open, accurate,unobtrusive appearence and design. Placement flexability.Incredible sound.Great price!
Matt, these are the best speakers your crew has ever developed. I have 3 pair of these now and music has never sounded better to me.The nylon dome is a very nice improvement to this already excellent speaker. I have a small recording studio in my basement and I use these speakers as a playback monitor.These speakers have such an honest uncolored quality about them. Just wanted to express my appreciation for such a wonderful accomplishment by your team. Thanks aqain, Scott.

Solid flat response down to 69HZ (60 +/- 3 db), great power handling for a small or "bookshelf" speaker, great mounting capability (wall, floor which I use, ceiling, and corners), stylish look, and durability. I did go from a surround sound system that rocked my house to being happy having full range sound and adequate volume from my old surrounds.
They do what they are supposed to do. This is not a speaker with a powered sub or a 3-way crossover. It's a small woofer and a tweeter in a small enclosure.
I previously used these speakers in my house as surrounds. Upon moving into a small apartment, I compared the sound quality to two sets of main speakers with a large sub, a mid, and a tweeter as well as my $500 JBL SVA center. Not needing pounding bass, just accurate full range sound I easily chose the M3II over them all, even the expensive center. I now have 2 speakers instead of 5 and have only lost some bass while gaining a lot of sound quality and flat response.

small best sounding small bookshelf speaker in my opinion easy to mount puts Bose to shame
only weakness I can see is they are hard to find theese days because polk no longer makes them
First of all I dont understand why Polk quit making theese speakers, They have got to be some of the best smaller speakers out there. I seen some of the other reviews saying they are great full range sound and yes your right but add a powered sub in a 5.1 setup it can make a horse get up and dance

Great overall sound. Love the wedge design! Have them in white and they blend with the walls perfectly.
Its a shame these are discontinued, I have two pair that I use for my surround sound, along with a CSi30 center channel. My cousin heard mine and searched the internet high & low to find a set. He replaced two sets of Bose with the M3II's and is as thrilled with them as I am with mine.

Small, elegant design
The cover of speaker also "cover" the sound
I have got a second hand one but the sound is gread with small dimention. But with small volume level you have to take the tweeter cover out for the better sound.

good bass , clean mids , very good sound at low volume
the hi frequency is little forward , the cover is average built
i have these speakers for some years now, the sound is sweet but harsh sometimes and the bass is good , the hi frequency is not the best i have heard at this price range, apart from that this speaker is must audition. regards ram

Top of the line Polk Audio compared to Bose clarity and wide range of sound deliverance. Excellent Solid Speaker System.
Their really isn't any except the covers do block a tiny bit of sound but not enough to call it a weakness. The cover are easily removable if needed. Simple.
These are high quality surround sound speakers with excellent sound performance that compares and matches to any Bose out there. That should tell you something if their good enough to be compared to top of the line Bose. These Polk Audio Shelf Speakers have that same clarity of sound that we all look for to have in any top quality sound system.
