There is no consensus of how much bass is the correct amount for everyone’s personal taste. There are some listeners who find the level of bass performance produced by Polk’s award winning bookshelf style speakers more than sufficient. To another listener they would prefer to augment the bass performance of even Polk Audio’s ultimate top performing floor standing tower speakers. It all becomes a matter of individual choice based upon the type of music/movies and individual expectations. Rest assured there is a Polk solution for every listener's need.
