Whybuy a speaker this size and expect bass like a subwoofer

Dafirst "Kell", Amazon
26 March 2015
  • 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. Having Xbmc installed on my mac min, which has sacd & dac output , with speaker settings. When i select LARGE, the sound comes directly from the bookshelf speakers and you can barely hear any bass from the subwoofer.

  • Summary: Shrill, and hardly any bass. I sold mine. They look good, nice workmanship, but a very flat, cold, unexciting 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. I was really going to enjoy blowing them up this coming 4th of July,but I use it for a center channel speaker now,anything but music,and it works okay. Musically they FAIL!!

Great value in speakers.

  • 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 heard. As of now my Definitive Tech Studio Monitors have been replaced by these Polks and I expect the sound will improve as the break in period approaches. Great speakers.

Know what you need before buying

  • 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, but bright sound (improves the sound of cheap amplifiers) Deep, but narrow and low sound stage Sound image changes depending on the volume (this can change after drivers are...

great sound from a small mid-priced speaker

  • 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.

Great value, high performance

John Kenderdine "physical sciences teacher", Amazon

  • Summary: Beautiful to see and hear! Prosumer gear here. I got the matched pair to produce and monitor the main virtual pipe organ sounds from my pro-grade synthesizer workstation. My background includes professional work at a government acoustical research facility, broadcast radio, music production as a musician both acoustic and electronic. Accurate sound production is important to me. I completed the system with a matched Polk 12" powered sub-woofer.

Excellent sound, great value!

lectric_sled, Ebay
16 February 2009
  • Summary: These RTi6 speakers from Polk Audio are excellent. The quality of construction is superb-the real cherry wood is gorgeous, and these are some solid boxes. The sound is rich and full, with even response over the frequency range. You won't get room-shaking bass, of course(one 6 1/2" woofer per speaker just won't do that!), but you will get smooth highs, warm mids, and tight bass. Run a subwoofer with these babies and you'll be blown away.

Okay for a small room

T. C. Gehner, Amazon
20 September 2008
  • 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). Otherwise, they don't produce much bass and the sound is kind of hollow. These aren't bad, but maybe my expectations were too high.
