Anyone have experience with these versus the Pioneer FS-51s they'll have on sale for $120 (or sometimes $100) at times. I'm curious as I own the Pioneers and am helping a buddy set up his first system.

Should I get 4 and find a center and sub for a 5.1 setup?

I would not get 4 of these maybe 2 monitor 60s for the front, 2 of these for the rear, a cs1 or cs2 for the center depending on how big your room is...cs1 does just fine for my apartment. Then a polk psw505 or BIC F12 for your sub and your setup good and cheap. I have that setup but with monitor 30 bookshelfs hung near ceiling for rears but thinking about getting 2 of these just to have if I ever get more room...$50 is dirt cheap....a wall speaker bracket costs freakin $30 I would say $50 for these speakers are a good deal even if they are used as rears.,,,,actually now that I look the monitor 50's are just $80 which is pretty good, I would much rather spend the $30 more for those than getting these...

Due to promo code restrictions, you can only buy one speaker at a time...just change/create a new account and you should be golden.

Those asking about the Pioneers ... honestly Polk makes some great stuff, but the Pioneers designed by Andrew Jones are a pretty big step up in sound quality. Many high end audio publications have been blown away by the bang for buck sound that the Pioneers have.

A lot more development/build costs went into making the Polks look better. The Pioneers are pretty much pure sound quality with whatever little budget left over to put them in an enclosure.

tl;dr version: Polks look better, Pioneers sound better

Polk makes awsome stuff, at their high end lines. honestly don't expect TOO much from 50 dollar Polk speaker.
the pioneer ones will probably better suited for the front, for rear speaker, you want it to align with your ear level.

Like someone else said with how Frys sold the R50's for years at $60 its difficult to thumb this up but really how can you go wrong for $50. I have 4 R50's so no value to me though.

Alot of people have bought these for 200$ when they were top market new. To ship these and the cost they paid for them they have to be losing money , they deff aren't just 50$ speakers. Frys sells these for 170$ each at there store with a limit of 2. Bestbuy had these for 130$ once and they sold like hot cakes. The speaker is way better than the speakers in the monitor series. I have heard them and you can compare them to 500$ towers at full volume.

Rules to live by.......never marry a woman you have never slept with. Never buy a pair of speakers you have not listened to first.
yeah, cause we all know its about the same hassle to get rid of a set of speakers you dont like as it is an ex...

According to the reviews on Newegg, the bass warrants a sub-woofer but can anyone speak to how they perform when you really crank up the volume on these puppies? I love to listen to music loud especially for parties.
I've had a set of these for years and were using them as front speakers in one of my 5.1 setups. If you want to listen to loud music, look elsewhere. They are serviceable for watching a movie in surround sound, but definitely lacking punch for music. I upgraded to Monitor 60's in front and moved the R300's to the rear to replace a pair of bookshelf speakers, and I'm very pleased with the R300's in this application. I have not listened to the Pioneers mentioned here, but have only heard good things about them. They would probably be your best bet for budget front speakers if you can't afford Monitor 60's or better when they are on sale.

I picked up 2 of them. I got the email and instantly got them. Now my stereo consists of 4 polk monitor 60 towers, 2 r300 towers , 2 polk bookshelfs, polk center channel, and 4 10" subwwofers . When will it stop!!!! Total of 22 speakers. When will they make a 10 channel receiver? Lol
i believe they have some 9.1 channel receivers...if i'm not wrong.

The R-line polks, are ok speakers. Not great, but for $50 each, you'll have a hard time finding a better floor-standing speaker.
