Summary: These speakers are awesome. My first set of Polk Audio front speakers, I replaced some old Cerwin Vega 12" with these and they are sweet. The highs, the mids, are outstanding. If you are a Bass lover (or like Hip Hop music like me) you might want to add a subwoofer for earth shattering bass... but the bass these speakers put out is very sufficient and you won't be disappointed. Lots of "thump" and power depending on the receiver you have pushing to these speakers.
Summary: I picked these up about a week ago from J&R in Manhattan, taking the advice of someone else who wrote a review on here since these are $118 each to get shipped. The pickup was relatively trouble-free; I was in and out in about an hour, with an extra 15 minutes trying to figure out how to get them to fit in my civic while still in the monstrous boxes (they eventually did).
Summary: I'm not an audio expert.. but certainly no need for a sub woofer with these big boys. The only negative is that both boxes were in taters when they arrived at the door. But fortunately speakers were in perfect condition.
Summary: I have had these speakers for a few months now and I am very happy. I purchased them from J&R in NYC for $500 for the pair including tax. J&R even paid for my parking when I went to pick them up. These speakers love power and if you are not getting enough bass you need a better amp or AVR or a better recording. I get plenty of bass. I get so much bass, I no longer use my Polk sub when listening to music. I run these bi-amp with a Yamaha v667 AVR and Onkyo SACD player.
Summary: I upgraded from a 5 year old sony HTIB to Polk Audio after experiencing my friend's setup. He had RTI8 and I got the RTI10's. I could not believe the sound quality, esp. the highs and mid's. You need good highs and mids for Bollywood music. My old sony receiver could not do justice to this speaker and had to upgrade to a Yamaha receiver. This did bring the speakers to life. I would suggest have a good denon or yamaha speaker that can drive these speakers esp.
Summary: The speakers sound great. They have a wide range and I bought them for a great price on amazon. This is my first pair of tower speakers so I don't have any thing to compare them to, but I love them. The only problem is the design. It is mandatory that the speakers have the feet connected to them before they are stood up.
Summary: These speakers are great. I paired them with all Polk speakers for a 7.1 setup and I am not disappointed. Last night I cranked the system for the first time and they delivered crisp, clean sound. I did end up getting the Polk 10" sub. Without the sub, they do well but they don't shake the ground during explosions or heavy action scenes. For me, the midtones are where they shine. This speaker fills in the gaps!
Summary: I ordered these after a lot of homework on Infinity/Polk comparison. Finally i purchased the RTi10s and i am quite pleased. I use the bi-amping feature and the serve as my two front channels. After a lot of deliberation and reading all the good and contrary reviews i am glad i made this purchase (they arrived in good time). Be sure to ming the measurements as these are fairly tall standing floor speakers.
