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. I can't afford RTi8's or RTi A5's, which are dual 6 1/2" towers; they should have bigger low end, but for now, the PSW10 sub I got for $115 online fills out the sound and kicks quite well. My next Polk Audio purchase will be the FXi3 dipole/bipole surround speakers since they will match better than the Polk Atrium 45's I got initially. The Atrium 45's are way too bright-the Audyssey speaker calibration on my Onkyo 606 tried to match the combination, but I think it made the RTi's brighter than they would be with properly matched surrounds.
I bought these speakers to replace a pair of large, and very tall planer speakers. The Polk RTi6 are a great sounding pair speakers, although I think I'm trying to fill too large a room with a speaker that would be better suited to a medium size room. My take-away is to buy one of the larger Polk floor-standing models which will provide a larger sound stage. Still the RTi6 delivers a great sound and isn't too imposing.
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..
These are relatively large for "bookshelf" speakers and have been replaced I believe by the Polk RTiA3's - which based upon the specs seem to be the same speakers except for the new cabinets on the A3's.
The RTi6's provide excellent sound quality and imaging for the price point. These speakers seem to perform their best when bi-wired and on fairly tall stands - they are "bookshelfs" after all. The RTi6's may sound a little thin at very low volume, but really come alive when they get the juice.
