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.
The frequency response of this center speaker is excellent and will handle nearly all requirements that an amplifier demand. Its main virtue though is its size as it fits under our wall mounted TV with no problem. Quality build is very evident in the unit, as is the case with most Polk audio products. It is not a lightweight unit, which again reflects on the quality of this center speaker.The purchase price had us a tad hesitant to purchase it. Considering the price it is not cheap to build a small unit which has 6 small polymer speakers enclosed within it along with the crossover frequency circuits to provide sound quality of this nature.In reality, a center speaker in a home theatre system does a good proportion of the work in reproducing vocal sounds. The surround channels and sub, provide the excitement. We had researched special sized center channel speakers and decided this was definitely a good product. We have not been disappointed. As an additional point of interest, we are driving this speaker through a Denon amplifier which can provide up to 200amps at 4 ohm.
I have this paired with B&W floorstsnding speakers (yeah not 'supposed' to 'mix' - who cares) that I've had for years, and although the fittings etc. are not the same quality the sound is clear and precise which is what I wanted for movie dialogue. Before adding this speaker it wasn't as clear with just 2 speakers (theoretically they could have been adjusted, but even after that the effect of adding a center speaker was dramatic). I leave it on for music too, as the vocals, acoustic guitars, and other mid-rangey things come through so clearly.
Make sure you measure your space though and compare with the specs as it's still a pretty hefty speaker so didn't fit above the receiver (too wide for the shelf) nor in front of the TV (too tall, blocked the picture). I mounted it under the TV stand, which wouldn't have been possible with a regular sized centre channel speaker.
I purchased this due to limited space in my upstairs home theater, it fits perfectly on my Mantle and does not obstruct my view of the TV. I have a smaller home theater system in this room, this speaker goes perfect with my Mission Bookshelf fronts and rear surrounds, it surprisingly has good base (I recommend setting your front to Large to achieve this).
This is not the ideal match if you have larger towers and surrounds as it won't replace a large center channel but for smaller to mid size setups the S35 works great.
