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: RTi6 is old serie but it never disappoint me . This speakers are great product. I pair them with Denon X-1000 AV use CSi3 as center plug Polk PSW10 as Sub . The sound coming out is great ,clear with soft base (without Sub).i love it. I will be getting Rti4 for my surround soon..
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 As of now my Definitive Tech Studio Monitors have been replaced by these Polks and I expect the sound will improve as the break in period approaches.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.
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.

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.
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.

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 am extemely satisfied with my new Polk Speakers. These were to replace a pair of older and bigger Polk speakers. The new smaller speakers sound just as good if not better that the older bigger ones.
Summary: I am the happy owner of two prototype Monitor 7 Polk Audio speakers. I purchased 4 RTi6 speakers used as follows: Using the two monitor 7 speakers for left and right channels, 1 RTi6 for a center channel (These speakers sit on top of a large cabinet located in the corner of a log house close to the ceiling), 2 more of the RTi6 speakers are used for surround left and right and the remainig RTi6 is used for the rear channel.
