Questions

Which in-wall front speakers would you recommend to pair with the Polk Audio CS1 center speaker?

Asked by: TSimon
The RC55I will make for a good match for the CS1 center channel. You may also want to consider the 65-RT In-Wall speaker, as it shares a similar Tweeter found in the CS1 center channel and is considered a slight upgrade to the RC55I.

On the CS1 series 2 center channel what would I set for hertz on my Onkyo av?

Asked by: ErikVonZigg
Hello, If you have a sub-woofer, it is recommended to set the crossover to 80 Hz for the CS1 Series 2. if you do not have a sub-woofer, it is better to leave the CS1 Series 2 set to full range.

Will this match well with the Polk Monitor 55T tower speakers? I am also running the FXi A4's as my rears and a Bose VCS 10 as center. So I would prefer a Polk for the Center channel. I'm just not sure which to go with.

Asked by: Porkchop
The CS1 center channel speaker blends well in almost all systems in small to medium-sized rooms. You may also want to consider the Polk Audio ES30 center speaker for medium to larger-sized rooms.

Can this speaker be used on a covered deck outdoors?

Asked by: Daw64
The Polk CS1 Monitor Series II speakers are designed to work indoors. While they may "work" in a covered area outdoors, the worry there might be with outdoor elements the covered deck can't protect the speaker from like humidity and other natural issues.
