Summary: I wonder why someone will buy a speaker this size and expect bass like a subwoofer!!! I have tried so many surround sound preamps on this speakers. Rotel, Sony Ep9es, Sony 9000es, . Honestly speaking, the two Sony products brought the beast in this speaker.
Summary: I have been torturing my ears for 3 years with these speakers.Every dull sound reproduced sounds synthetic,no natural sound with a narrow dynamic range.The tweeters sound like red solo cups ,he woofer diaphragms sound like plastic garbage can covers instead of drums.
Summary: I haven't owned Polk speakers since the 80's but found a great deal on these RTI6's. To say the least, I am truely amazed by the quality of sound these speakers produce. I have been into audio for over 40 years and have owned many many brands of speakers, but these are some of the finest I have...
Summary: Pros: Wall mountable Terminal for dual wiring Nice looks Excellent center speaker solution Mid/bass and treble drivers positioned close to each other Cons: Relatively low efficiency (89dB; needs quite a bit of amp power to drive) Extreme sensitivity to placement (high directionality) Not polished,...
Summary: Had these for a few years now and am still happy with the sound quality from these mid-priced speakers. I would consider buying Polk speakers again. As in all brands there are low end and high end these were the happy medium.

My background includes professional work at a government acoustical research facility, broadcast radio, music production as a...
Summary: These were my first polk speakers. I use them as sides along with a csi3 center, fxi3 backs, and a velodyne sub. They're okay, but in a medium-sized room, they definitely need the help of a sub (and I'm not the type who needs wall-shaking sound).

Summary: Excellent Speakers incredible tone and quality, beautiful cherry wood workmanship, sound great throughout the entire sound spectrum I highly recommend them. I use them with the Polk Audio Center channel CSI3,it is also excellent and Crutchfield was quick and efficient too.
Summary: I sat at American TV for an hour comparing these and the klipsch. Klipsch had great highs, but Polk sounded warmer and easier on the ears. I can turn these up as loud as I want and my amp overloads before they distort. One thing I don't like is their length.
