The Polk Audio CS1 Black Center Channel Loudspeaker Polk Audio

Here's a deal that's sure to sound good.

A strong center channel is key to the home entertainment set-up, responsible for delivering the bulk of movie dialogue as well as the tunes for music-centric programming. For those who want big sound for a small price, Newegg has the Polk Audio CS1 Black Center Channel Loudspeaker for $66.99, a savings of $133 off the list price of $199, or 66 percent.

This two-way passive speaker features two 5.25-inch midrange cone drivers made from a bi-laminate composite and a 1-inch tweeter made of fabric/polymer composite, delivering a maximum power output of 125 watts and a frequency response of 55Hz to 25,000Hz.

CNET's Steve Guttenberg said in a review that the nonresonant 0.75-inch-thick medium-density fiberboard cabinet construction is nice and solid and that the internal crossover uses high-quality parts. The heavy-duty, five-way binding posts cheerfully accept banana jacks, bare wire, or spade connectors.

Guttenberg gave this center channel a rating of "very good," noting that it may be too large for some tastes but sounded good with both movies and music. CNET readers gave it a rating of four and a half stars out of a possible five-star rating.

Shipping is free, but the deal will only last for a very short while, maybe a day or so.
