I imagine that there is a bit of badge pricing on speakers no matter what you buy, but how much is there?
A $200 Polk will not be better than a $700 anything.

The cheap subwoofer prices I quoted earlier were for a package deal from Polk promo. If you buy $500 in speakers, you get $300 off any subwoofer.

This is a fantastic deal especially when you get the $500 in speakers on sale.

Basically, you can get $600 or $700 in speakers on sale for $500 and a $500 sub for $200. So $1200 package for $700 with warranty. Plus save $100+ on shipping plus another $100 and taxes. Etc.
