Summary: I got these to replace a set of RTiA3's. These do have a more immersive surround effect butnot that great for listening to music. I used the RTiA3's as presence speakers with RTi8's as mains and a CSiA6 as center channel. These speakers provide a very good movie watching experience.
Summary: I run a Dennon 2310 reciever /W Polk RTI A7 towers, CSIA6 Center, (2)_DSW Micropro 3000 10" subs, and recently a pair of FXI/A6... with unspoken wires, power strips, and other nessesities. amazing speaks even without the quality backups! These speakers can make you go deaf, and sound damn good doing it! Fyi FXI/A6 alone after break in tested by me at 103db sustainable! I will add that I have had a couple claims to polk for new speakers blown or problematic (by my abuse).
Summary: I have neglected getting surround speakers for too long. i was skeptical to buy these at first because of the price and i couldn't really fins any videos or reviews but i stuck with my gut and got them. all i can say is wow, these made my system into a whole new thing. the sound fills the room and is crystal clear. highly recommended!
USed as my side and rear speaker for my 5.1 Polk Audio system

Summary: Recommend speaker because of the angles. Do keep in mind that they are bigger side/rear speakers so be sure you have the room. I only wish that they came in a cherry finish since my whole audio speakers are all cherry down to the sub woofer.
Summary: Bought these primarily for home theater, but am finding myself listening to music through the extra channels more often than expected. Replaced an older and smaller pair of Polks, which never quite did justice to audio, so I got in the habit of only using the main speakers for music. Be aware of the size before you buy -- the rich sound comes with a price in terms of space.
Summary: I've got RTI A7, CSI A6... was trying to decide between the RTI A3 and these FXI A6. I'm very happy that I got the FXI A6. In dipole they really are difficult to localize so for surround sound watching movies it is great. The reason I removed a star was because, while they are good, I don't think they are good enough for 5 stars.
Summary: Wonderful bi/dipole speakers with a warm pleasing sound that surrounds you. They are large so check the dimensions and you space before ordering! The look nice and sound great. When sitting in the room it is very hard to determine where exactly the sound is coming from. I am using these in bipole mode as surrounds mounted behind the listening position in a 5.1 setup. Very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: These speakers are awesome! I changed over my 10 year old surround system speakers out for Polk Audio speakers including the Polk FXI A6 surrounds and the difference is day and night. I use a Pioneer Elite receiver and can push these surrounds hard without them distorting or breaking a sweat! I recommend these to anyone serious enough to even look at surround speakers. They are definitely worth the money.
Summary: These speakers are a great bang-for-the-buck surround speaker! The white color blends in with wall as much as possible and the sculpted top and bottom plates add a nice finishing touch. The grills close everything off for a distinct hi-end look. As to the sonic performance, I am very happy how they blend in with my other Polk speakers. The bipole/dipole selection witht he flip of a switch makes it easy to evaluate which is better in your system.
