    • Great sound, even better price!

      from Cornwall, ON on November 22, 2018

      I've had the R50's for several months now and have been very happy with them. They do need to be broken in but they really warm up after a few weeks of listening. They put out a really well balanced sound and could rival tower speakers that cost double or triple the price. Great highs, mids and lows. If your looking for deep bass, you're going to want to add a subwoofer. They do fairly well on their own but 6.5" drivers can only pack so much of a punch.

    • Amazing sound for the price

      from Brampton, ON on June 20, 2018

      I'm not an expert, but for the price you cant beat these. I set these up for my home theatre sytem and paired the up with a set of T50's, a centre speaker and a sub. Amazing sound for both movies and music. The clarity at all levels a great. When I want to I can shake the walls. I had a freind come over that is a music guy and he was totally impress with all aspects of the sound on these. All be adding a pair shortly to fill out my 7.1 surround.

    • there grate!!!

    • Bought on sale, great speakers for sale price

      from Kanata, ON on February 20, 2018

      Bought these on a great sale and I'm really enjoying them. They have enough bass for me, but at the price I got them, I could still add some more bass if I need to.

    • I've Owned These for 15 Years

      from Medicine Hat, AB on January 25, 2018

      We purchased a pair of Polk R50 tower speakers from Future Shop (later switched to Best Buy) August 2002 and have been using them almost daily since. These speakers only sound better with time, and right out of the box they're impressive. For the price, they're tough to beat. On sale? You just can't go wrong with these. The ONLY issue is that they've overpowered my other surrounds, so now I'll have to replace those with other R-series Polk speakers.

    • great for the price

      from London, ON on January 16, 2018

      from Vancouver, BC on January 5, 2018

      This is the first time I tried Tower speakers. These speakers delivers amazing sound with great Bass. Just close your eyes and purchase it.

    • Excellent

      from Halifax, NS on December 27, 2017

      The output is amazing. You don't need to have a separate Sub Woofer. It is a great deal.

    • Everyone likes it!

      from Farmville on December 20, 2017
