Newegg has Polk Audio R50 Two-Way Floorstanding Speaker Single-Black for $54.99. This seems to be an all time low for these decent speakers that have previously gone FP at higher price.

I have a question for you about the height. The website shows 36 3/4" for the height but I need 36" max for where they would sit next to my entertainment center. How tall are these if I were to remove the feet post from the bottom?

New to home theater systems. Can I buy five of these and use them as front left/right, center and rear left/right in a 5.1 setup? Space is not an issue. Thanks.

Sure can. Center might be a little awkward though, what's your plan for placement?

Sure now how it will sound will be completely subjective.
One issue you may have is depending on your seating, as rears most of the sound will be impeded.

Thanks hiperco. Planning to place them on either side of the projector screen and sofa in the basement. Also I was planning to place one horizontally below the center of the screen as a center speaker. But as you've suggested, it may not look right. So I'll look for a different center speaker and also a sub. Thanks again.

Great speakers! Got them last time on sale similar price! Just be careful to check them all around when they arrive. One of them had a small dent nickel size in the wood box housing doesnt affect the sound. Likely from manufacturing since the shipping boxes were intact. I was too excited to fire up my 7.1 setup I never followed up on the small dent.

I just got a Sonos Beam, would this be crazy to use with that? Would there be any audio issues if it were able to connect?

Yeah, get a real center speaker, it'll help the vocals of music and movies sound better. The engineering is slightly different for acoustic delivery.

I would recommend buying 4 of these and a center.
