    I finally decided on a pair of Polk Audio monitor 70's, but I was just wondering how sturdy they are? Growing up with a pair of floorstanding Polk's with a 15'' woofer, they were plenty sturdy, but I don't wanna drop 650 bucks on speakers that will fall over when I sneeze.

    This will do a lot better in AMPS section, not OT ....
     
  3. They'll probably be OK, (but if you go over to the Parts Express site and see how little the drivers actually cost, you'll wonder why you're dropping 650 bucks on a pair of Polk speakers....$100 of parts in a couple of MDF boxes....)

    Of course that's my opinion: the Polk stuff is "OK" but their components aren't as high-end as their ads lead us to believe...

    thats certainly new information nashvillebill, and if they aren't as high quality as I thought, then what would you reccomend?
