Top 10 Best Rear Surround Speakers
for October 2022

As home entertainment technology has advanced, so have home speakers. Today, you can find speakers of all sizes, shapes, and colors, from floor-standing speakers to bookshelf speakers to wireless speakers. But whether you're installing speakers in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or outdoors, adding a surround system is a worthwhile investment.

Surround speakers are speakers that surround you, providing a full, immersive sound experience. They are ideal for home theaters, where surround sound can make you feel like you're watching a movie, TV show, or video game in a real movie theater, while surround speakers can also be installed outside to add sound to your yard or pool area.

In the Different Guide , we test and evaluate audio equipment, including speakers, headphones, and headphones. We evaluate performance factors such as sound quality, volume, and frequency.

Polk Audio SR1 Wireless Rear Surround Speakers for MagniFi Max Sound Bar System | Easy Connectivity and Versatile Use | Upgrade to 5.1 Channels Sound | Pair, Black

Polk Audio SR1 Wireless Rear Surround Speakers for MagniFi Max Sound Bar System

by DEI Holdings
What We like

Polk Audio's SR1s vastly outperform the Sonos Play:1 ($200) and are more than $100 less than the Bose Home Speaker 500 ($400). A built-in keyhole slot lets you place the speakers on a shelf, and the threaded insert lets you wall mount them. And unlike some universal-fit surround speaker systems, these don't sound tinny, no matter how far away you place them.
