Select two speakers:
Sony SSCS3 vs. Polk Audio HTS 12
Sony SSCS3 3-Way Tower Speakers
Like their bookshelf-sized cousins, the Sony SS-CS5s, these towers from Sony feature a ”super tweeter,” claiming high-end response to 50,000 Hz and superior off-axis response. Some may find the bass response a bit lacking for a tower, but their imaging and soundstage rivals speakers costing hundreds more.
Polk Audio HTS 12 Powered Subwoofer
A very good, well-balanced subwoofer for the price. As is the case with most 12” subs, it may not fill the largest of rooms, but it can be turned up loud with very little distortion due in part to Polk’s patented ”power port.”
- The front face of the Sony SSCS3 is approximately 3.09% larger than that of the Polk Audio HTS 12.
- The depth of the Polk Audio HTS 12 is approximately 76.68% deeper than that of the Sony SSCS3.
- The spatial volume of the Polk Audio HTS 12 Powered Subwoofer is approximately 71.39% greater than that of the Sony SSCS3 3-Way Tower Speakers.
Notice: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker, or in the case of volume, the measurements are based on a box that would fit the entire speaker. The measurements will not factor in individual differences such as curves or other variations in the speaker shape. Do not use these measurements as an estimate of the internal speaker volume.
