The Polk S35 gets three stars for its sound quality and I get zero stars for not doing my research properly. I keep turning off this speaker because lots of movies tend to play everything on the center channel and this speaker cannot keep up whith all the sounds it has to play, so sound effects get lost. For a long time I used a 4.1 setup only but hearing from everywhere that "the center speaker is the most important" I decided to buy the S35. I chose this one mainly because of its soundbar look (what pleases my other half) and also the reviews I read were good. I am not pleased with what I hear comming out from this speaker, sound is boxy and the highs get lost. It is possible that it is because my setup or my settings, I will continue to experiment with it but I recommend to everyone who has some decent towers to stick only to those, you will hear the people speaking and you will hear the background effects too. Or maybe try a speaker with bigger drives and better box material, I don't know... 4.1 is fine for me.
I was really carried away by the reviews. But my hand-on experience is that there is nothing exceptional in this as the manufacturer and some reviews claimed. Replacing my very ordinary centre speakers with Polk hasn't brought any significant improvement in performance. Highly priced and I regret wasting 22 thousand. Only three stars for its average performance.
I ordered this center channel speaker for two reasons. First, I've been using a Pioneer SP-C22 which was too large to place directly below my TV and this units slim profile was perfect. The SP-C22 sells for less than 100 dollars. Secondly I liked the appearance which pairs nicely with my Elac UF5's and UB5's. I was leary that such small drivers could deliver meaningfull bass but after reading the reviews I felt like this wouldn't be a problem. Well after replacing my SP-C22 the difference was immediately obvious, basically no bass. After trying several crossover frequencies and even setting the speakers to large still nothing. Granted the mids and highs are fairly decent but overall I'm quite disapointed. BTW I use a two subwoofers but I'm not talking about sub bass or anything even close too it, more like the base you would expect from small bookshelf speakers with the same frequency specifications. Frankly I think the bass frequency of 53Hz is quite a ways off. If it achevies this it must be at a decibel level that is not detectable.
This speaker was intended to be an upgrade from an existing Polk Audio CS1 series 2 center channel speaker. In all honesty I knew that it would be asking a lot of (6) 3” speakers to perform as well as (2) 5 1/4” midrange drivers. The cabinet is an aesthetically pleasing design and I must admit the mid century design is very pleasing. But the sound quality was seriously lacking. The rest of the system is compromised of Polk Audio RM50T towers, Polk TL3 satellites, and powered 10” sub. So sound quality does matter to me when listening to movies/tv as well as music. This little speaker just doesn’t hold a candle to the rest of my setup. It’s also kind of a giveaway at the price reductions since the speaker was released. Polk has it directly for $399, and eBay has it for $197 with free shipping (12/27/19). The speaker just is not worth anything much over $100. I would try the S30 over this but I fear it will sound the same as the CS1 series 2. I am leaning towards the larger CSI A6 which may be a difficult match to the rest of my system, but well worth a try.
I really wanted to like this speaker, as I thought that it "looked" like it would sound great. However, "looking like" and actually sounding great are two completely different things. After much use I have concluded that at regular/ lower levels of sounds the speaker actually does sound pretty good. However, when played at loud volumes the bass is lacking quite a bit and the mid-highs are "crunchy" sounding. I was hoping that this speaker would hold its own when paired with my Polk Audio Rti A3's, but this just did not happen. Even though the A3's are bookshelf speakers and are much older, they completely over powered and sound much more crisp when compared to the S35 center channel. I bought it used/like new from amazon for $144, so I guess you can't go wrong with that. But as mentioned it is lacking quite a bit in the sound quality department. I will most likely be upgrading to the Polk Audio Reserve R400 or maybe even the R350 (same idea as the S35 but hopefully much better quality).
I think this speaker is lacking the fulness and low end of polks earlier, larger woofer, center speakers. However it does allow it to be thin which is why I bought it because my other one did not fit height wise on my mantle between the TV. I'm disappointed in this speaker though. If I paid full price for it I would probably return it but I got it open box for half off so I'm keeping it.
I bought this to add to my front towers and sub to make a 3.1 system for movies. I thought it would help me hear dialogue better, but it doesn’t. I did the system auto calibrate, and after that the center channel was barely audible. So I had to manually turn it up to. Now I can hear it, but the quality is too muddy. Should be tuned for higher frequencies of human speech, but it’s all low-mid. Pros: seems well built, looks nice, low profile fits nicely under my TV. Cons: quiet, muddy.
After 2 months of owning and critical listening, I realized its more looks than performance. Its boomy sounding when volume gets tuned up and thats annoying to listen to on such a good looking speaker. My L&R speakers still sound better than this S35 center in movies and music. I wanted to believe in this speaker but now I'm looking in for something better.. Maybe I can modify it somehow. Not sure what I'm gonna do next but I need fixing asap.
The speaker is very well build and look nice but the sound is not that good, i used the speaker with my ONKYO RZ830 in my mancave and when play loud movie scene the speaker distorts, the speaker works good for small home theater but not for big system, i used for only 4 hours before moving it to my livinroom tv and connecting back my 2 channel center system.
