I use them as my rear surround and they seem pretty decent.

I bought the T15's from Best Buy (not on display so I couldn't listen in store) and ordered the R41M's from Costco at the same time. They are to be used as primary speakers in a bedroom so they usually won't be turned up too loud. I tested them by connecting them to the same Yamaha receiver and adjusting the volume when switching between them so the subjective volume level for both models was the same.

In my opinion the Klipsch speakers are far superior.

The R41M's highs are crystal clear compared to the Polks and the imaging is much better. The bass is also better balanced and clearer. The Polks have a much more pronounced mid range so the vocals sound closer, but when comparing them to big audiophile quality speakers (Thiels) the Polk's vocals are exaggerated in my opinion. The Polks also had some audible distortion to the highs I couldn't hear with the Klipsch R41M's. The T15's required a boost to the base and treble on my receiver to sound decent (not done during A/B testing). The R41M's sound great flat.

The one downside to the Klipsch speakers (considering limitations due to their size) is the vocals do sound a bit distant. I found it acceptable because it isn't really noticeable unless switching between speaker models.

Obviously speaker choice is really subjective, but this is my take. The Polks go back today.
