    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.

  • 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.

    Congrats on the purchase I have been enjoying my signature S60 towers since I have purchased them. Wonderful speakers
  • MilitoMilito Posts: 1,079
    Replaced my 2 Monitor 60's and a CS2 with a pair of S55's and a S30. Nice improvement in sound.

    I'm glad I saw this thread as I was going to get a pair of RTiA7's and decided on the S55's.

    Hey guys! I’ve joined the Signature Series club ;). Got these when there was a sale a couple of months ago. These are definitely a step up from the T series I previously had...I even went Atmos :smiley:. Unfortunately, due to budget, my subs are still the same.
    Looks like there is another sale on the Signatures again, and I was thinking of getting either the S50 or S55. Opinions? I’m not looking at the S60 because I’m in a condo on the third floor (in a 5 floor building) and not looking to spend more than 600. Will either of these floorstanders be good enough so that I won’t need my subs?
    My Setup: Denon AVR X3600h, Polk Signature S50 Fronts w/ S30 Center and S15 Rears, LG UBK90 4K Player, TCL 6-Series 65”4k TV

    Are you saying you wana get rid of your subs? Imo for music the 55s work great without subs.. For home theater you always need a sub Imo
  • felipefelipe Posts: 423
    Honestly, I’m just exploring options. I moved to this condo a few months ago (coming from a house), so I’m new to this kind of living and adjusting to having people above and below and on both sides of me lol. The subs dont go very low, and the frequency response of these floorstanders look to be similar...so at the same time trying to free up some floor space and simplify.
