I currently have a CSI3 center and and looking to upgrade L&R fronts. Has anyone paired this center with the Infinity P363's and if so did they sound good together? Or for that matter anyone's opinion on if they will work good together?

I see that CS20 is listed on official Polk website but could not find CS2 series II on their website.Although Cs2 II is on cyber monday sale on Newegg for $100 today where as Amazon has CS20 at $169.
Confused between these two which is better?

CS20 is the TSI line center channel , CS2 II is the Monitor line center with a black front baffle instead of silver. There isn't much difference between the two, minor changes in cabinet design and drivers. Which is "better" I can not tell you. I own a CS2 II and am very happy with it. Would I go and buy the CS20 for a replacment... Probaly not.... I don't think there would be any noticable difference in them.

So I should buy C2 II without worrying about CS20. One more thing they both have drivers bigger than Monitor 60 II so that is not a issue , right?

Today for Cyber Monday I see a deal on Best buy for pair of T15s around $50 only , would they be good surround speakers?

My opinion is, yes get the CS2 II, the larger drivers is a good thing and a non issue other than it takes up space. T15s should blend nicely as surrounds.
Monitor 30 II is $80 at newegg right now, monitor 40 II is $110. Just some other options.

+ 1 CS2 for $99 is a great deal.

Thanks guys will def get the CS2 II then but can not buy today , hopefully NewEgg will have it on sale again sometime soon. Then after that would get Subwoofer and then bother you guys asking which Subwoofer would go along well.

I see that you also have the M70s, just wait till you have the power and headroom to drive those. A receiver upgrade will do wonders I found ,but holy crap after adding the XPA-5 to the mix those M70s and CS2 really woke up

I started out with a Denon AVR-591, then went with Onkyo TX-NR1009(vast improvement over the AVR-591) now with the XPA-5 I believe I am all set.... well till the bug bites me again

Home theater seems to be a never ending process(hobby), but I enjoy it greatly.
