    I would love to get a pair of S55 in here to compare with the Q Acoustic floor standers.

    Not sure if it's a screw up on their end or what..
  • Ctxx24Ctxx24 Posts: 66
    What does anyone think of getting some s60s for the front and moving my 55s to the rear?

    Others, have had towers in front and back and seem to like it, try it and see. However, if you don't like it, make sure you have somewhere else where you can hook up the second pair of towers.

    I'm really wondering how different they are gs the 55s if it's worth it.. Or if they would need more power.. I don't use a amp
  • Try it and let us know
  • Ctxx24Ctxx24 Posts: 66
    I prolly won't be trying it.. My room is only 10x10 with short ceilings.. I'm sure I wouldn't benefit much

    Relocated my s10s from str8 overhead to angled at me and think they sound better..

    @VoodooGTS asked me for a wall mounted shot of the S15 in a PM. I don't have one of those in our archive but I thought I'd share this wall mount shot of a Signature S10.

    I have my front stage polk audio s20's, polk audio s35, and klipsch r-10sw sub. I now have four of the polk audio s10 to place as rear surrounds and side surrounds.

    Can you tell me what mount was used?

    I would like my wall surrounds to have this same clean look with virtually no wall gap.

    Mostly likely hung using the keyhole slot which is integrated into the power port.

    You they have the built in hole.. I used it on my 10s but I wouldn't think about it with 15 or 20s.

    Do the S20 have a keyhole mount built into the back? I thought they did not.

    Nice looking setup! The only thing that concerns me is no airspace above the Marantz receiver to allow it to vent it's heat.

    The S20s are pretty huge for bookshelf speakers and they look almost comical in the Audioengine DS2 stands I put them on, but the stands point the speakers up towards the listeners while not raising them up so high that they block the TV. Tried a couple of the foam stands from Amazon and the quality / finish of the foam stands were all sub-standard.

    Got Dayens?
  • I was worried about that too so I cut open the back of that nook in the TV stand the Marantz is in so there would be airflow moving over it either through the front or from the back.

    Nice. Well, usually they require at least a 3-6"+ or so of air space above the top vents, but maybe since it's their slimline series they run cooler.

    As long as you are happy with the temps, then carry on. :)

    Could alway find a way to mount one of these to pull air over it https://www.coolerguys.com/collections/cabinet-cooling

    These are great if you can fit it https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LW0G46K?ref=emc_b_5_t

    Thank you for the information. I now have my brand new 5.1.4 media room set up with Polk S20 Fronts, Polk S35 Center, Polk S10 Surrounds, and Polk V60 in ceiling atmos (x4), and Klipsch RS10W subwoofer, all driven by an Onkyo TX-RX920. The signature series sounds amazing, combined with the V60s. The sound envelop is seamless.

    All that's left to do is replace furniture, carpet, and paint.

  • Thank you!

    Added the final piece of hardware: Isoacoustics Iso-Pucks.

    These really open up the s35 center channel for those that will not wall mount.hez5072azmjk.jpg

    FWIW. Interesting perspective on the S20 loudspeakers compared to a couple of other recent/current small, low-ish cost darlings, as seen Someplace Else.

    Good move HTGuy! The jump from the TSi/Monitor line to the Signature is more like a giant leap. There is literally no comparison between them.
