Haha well the 4300 is awesome. Normally I dont suggest people buy those or even step up into atmos without $3k to put towards speakers, as I believe you will get a better setup having a better 3.1 and a cheaper AVR (especially when the 4300 was $1500 and the 1300 was $300).

With that being said, personally I would pass on these Polks. I think you need to spend more $ on subwoofer(s).

If it were me, and I was in your shoes I would DIY the entire 7.2.4 from DIYSoundGroup [diysoundgroup.com]. Aside from buying all used gear (which I am also a HUGE fan of, as good people love to upgrade gear and sell their slightly used stuff at a decent discount) I think DIY is the best bang for the buck for home theater, ESPECIALLY FOR SUBWOOFERS. I had a HSU VTF15h [hsuresearch.com] that I really liked but when I wanted a second I realized I should just go DIY like I originally wanted. I sold the HSU to completley fund a pair of 18s in ported boxes that decimate my HSU. The HSU is really a great sub and I like the company a lot. For people that dont want to DIY I think they offer the best bang for the buck for enthusiasts that want solid subwoofers, but DIY is on an entirely different level. I can add up to 14 more 18"s with my current amp IF I was insane enough to do it... at about $135 each which is a drastic difference from the $1k shipped from HSU for their 15.

Anyway, assuming you are not interested in DIY I think your priorities need to be a decent center channel and a great subwoofer. I would probably go with a pair of Chane [chanemusiccinema.com]1.4s for LR and the Chane A2.4 for center. that is about $600 which leaves almost enough to get a single HSU VTF-2 mk5 [hsuresearch.com].

Really most speakers in this price range are going to be good, so its like fine tuning the pros vs the cons. Is a Honda accord better for you, or a chevy tahoe. It depends. Ultimately I am sure these polks are good, and they are def pretty, but I think your funds would be better spent on a subwoofer and bookshelves. I also think you would have been better off.

Also I have plenty of other speaker brands worth considering if you are interested and would definitely suggest DIY if you have any interest.

Never been used, sure. So Adorama just rips open the boxes to "see if they're in there" and then discounts them? Everywhere else that term exists, it usually means returns - which if that is the case, these must be some crappy speakers because these open box deals constantly come around.

Ordered from one of the previous deals. Boxes were definitely NOT opened. Brand new speakers. I wonder if it is a way for Adorama to get around Polk's MAP.

it's how they get around pricing agreements...new to the speaker scene? they say they are open box so they can sell below mandatory pricing rules from manufacturers you honestly didn't think it was pure coincidence that all major electronics are the same price at every retailer, did you?

Would this work well in a dedicated theater room that's 15 x 15 with 7.5 foot ceilings?

I moved into a home with a partially finished theater room. I'm not happy with the existing in-wall speakers. I've been thinking about putting some towers and a center up front and leaving the existing rear in-wall speakers.

Would this be a good fit? Or is this a situation where someone could reasonably say, "No, for $300 less you could get XYZ, and be set."?

Thanks

What's your overall budget? Do you have an AVR? How loud do you like to listen? Do you ever listen to music? Do you have interest in a subwoofer?

I am tempted but will wait for the Polk s60 kit to come back.

Always better to have more than you need. You can always turn the volume down.

As long as you don't over clutter the room with sound absorbing materials, the 705s + 704 should be good.

But without knowing your setup (other equipment and room layout), it's impossible to give an absolute answer.

I'd like to keep it under $1000.
Yes, my AVR is a Denon x4300 (the eventual goal is to put atmos speakers in)
We don't really care about "loud." We're just going for clarity and immersive sound (I'm hoping the switch from in-wall to towers would do this).
It's purely for movies/tv, not for music.
I've got a cheap sub (Monoprice 9723 [monoprice.com]), but, I'll likely upgrade somewhere down the road.

We've just got a couch and a couple of bean bags in the room, and a rack in the back corner with the A/V equipment.


Thank you both for your help. I really appreciate it.
