Review of Polk RC85i

  • Summary: Product arrived on time and in excellent condition. Bought these speakers for the media room in my basement which is being finished. Only reason for the 4 star is because I have not hooked this up yet.

  • Summary: Good sound for the money. Add a subwoofer and center speaker to round out the package. Easy install for either new construction or retrofit. Crutchfield had the best price and lightning quick shipping and their service is second to none.
  • Pros: Value, ease of install, decent sound
  • Cons: None

Large sound, good price.

  • Summary: Their "wall speakers" and for the money they sound great. I filled the wall cavity with sponge for a bit more bass. Like any speaker, push it with the right power and don't over do it, they will sound good. Easy to install, wall template included..

  • Summary: Great Speaker for the price, I installed these in wall speakers in my living room to provide sound for my 50" samsung tv, I am powering them with a denon 1912 avr they were a breeze to install and give a very nice finished look compared to a home theater in a box. My wife was happy, I am happy. I only gave it a four star rating because I have heard better sound but the speakers would easily cost twice as much. Great speaker for the value.
  • Pros: Ease of installation, price, appearance, clear sound
  • Cons: none

Amazing sound.

  • Summary: I am a budget audiophile. Long story short, these speakers provide a sonic experience that is _unbelievable_ for the price. I got two pair, mainly for stereo listening. I've only taken the time to install one pair. After dialing them in with my Denon receiver (and tight but small pioneer 8" sub).... they sound amazing. The imaging.... spectacular. I installed one with polyfill and the other without. Not much discernible difference.
  • Pros: Warm, expansive sound, *especially* for an in-wall.
  • Cons: Nope. What do you want? Them to come with like chocolate bars and vodka?

Excellent speakers !

  • Summary: These are VERY good speakers. I installed a set in my garage ceiling and one more set as front main for my 7.1 system. I am very pleased with the output performance. Very clean and clear sound (high, mids and BASS). Initially installed them without any insulation on the back but the punch was pretty strong to a point that the other side room was disturbed.
