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 black front. Built for speed, sound and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.

Center channel performance

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.

Designed with usage in mind

Reversible Design – Flexibility to position the loudspeaker below ear level. Turn the cabinet upside down and it aims the sound up, at listening level

Flexibility to expand and grow your setup

The entire Monitor Series II range is timbre-matched (similarly tuned) so you can pair with Monitor 60 or 70 Tower Speakers and Monitor 40 Bookshelf Speakers for a unified and immersive experience. Combine them all for a surround sound setup.

Why Polk Audio

The real question is, why anything else? We’ve always made the best speakers at the best price - that’s it. 

But for storytelling’s sake, let’s back it up to 1972 where a group of friends, talented engineers, and music lovers got together with the skillset, the ambition to make the best speakers they could afford, and the attitude to change the establishment. That day, a speaker company was born with a clear vision for quality and a powerful mission for value. 

Each and every day since then, all Polk products are the result of tight-knit collaboration, teamwork, and our collective passion to make great sound available to as many people as humanly possible. 

A mission like that requires more than engineering expertise. It requires inventive spirit, hard-earned experience, and intuition. It’s that intuition—the most magical human ingredient—that bestows Polk products their sonic personality and pride of place in your home. To this day, design, acoustics, engineering (and ingenious, intuitive human magic) all happen under one expansive roof under the guise of democratizing sound. Because we mean it when we say great sound shouldn’t be a privilege of the few, it should be accessible and available for all.
