Home Entertainment (UK)
"...within its slightly narrower constraints - and considering the price - the Polk is tuneful and attractive sounding, and it is capable of reproducing all but the very lowest frequencies available on the test recordings, films and music alike. More importantly, the output of the Polk is always fast, which helps it to blend in with the rest of the components used for the test. The test systems used sound fuller, smoother and easier on the ear with the Polk in place than when used on their own, which is a telling indication of the subwoofer's quality."
"Verdict: A strong performer that is both tuneful and attractive sounding."
