Polk Monitor 5 vs Klipsch KG 3.2

I found both of these local for about the same price. I have no experience with either, so I'm hoping to get some feedback here to help me choose. These would not be for my main system, that has BA 150's.

I assume both are good speakers. Just curious if there are key differences I should consider. Thanks!

Klipsch 3.2 reviews

Polk Monitor 5 reviews
http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/p...or5/?reviews=1

I see the ads for the Polk Monitor 5 for $150 and Klipsch for $125. Both are advertised excellent/mint condition.

I think the $150 is a bit high for a Monitor 5. I have seen Polk Monitor 10s for less. $75 to $85. A mint Monitor 10 in cherry? for $150. But I'm just talking price not sound.

Not familiar with the Klipsch. But looking at the price paid for the Klipsch on the audioreview link, you may be getting a better value.

I've always been interested in Klipsch speakers, and have only listened to a few of the larger models. I think I'm leaning more in that direction anyway. Thanks!
