Quality Control.... PATHETIC!!

Voodoodoc, Amazon

  • Summary: Speaker arrived with connector plate in back hanging out and no screws. Obviously never even inspected at the factory....makes you wonder about overall speaker quality. Sound is ok but not as good to me as most of the reviewers seem to think here. Poor Quality like ths is inexcusable.

Was expecting better.

Hank, Crutchfield
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Like the title, I was expecting more. A Polk loyalist I was somewhat disappoineted with the overall sound. These were to replace my Polk RM5000 system which consists of 2 front satelite speakers and a non-powered sub-woofer. This system is over 20 years old and is driven by the Denon AVR-X4000.
  • Pros: Nice cabinet and Crutchfield advisors.
  • Cons: Muddy sound. Requires alot of power to drive these speakers.

  • Summary: Amazon states a list price of $474.95 but this is wrong. The Polk Audio site states a list price of $799.90 per pair, which when divided by two is $399.95, exactly the price that Amazon is offering for one speaker.

Outstanding speaker with quality control issues

W. Roberts, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought my first loudspeakers a dozen years ago, and after listening to countless models I selected Polk RT's. I suppose "Reference Theater" is just marketing. And I don't even see the term spelled out in the literature for my latest acquisition, a pair of Polk Audio RTi A5's.

Not bad

  • Summary: I have the older RTI8s and I would have to say that the RTI8s are a much better speaker! The RTIA5 are very nice but when you compair the two side by side the 8s are ways more efficient! if you can still find the 8s get them!
