You will notice a massive jump in sound quality even when connected to a very poor power source, and it just gets better the more wattage you pump through them.
Got these speakers about a year and half ago at a crazy lost inventory price (too good to be true). I was not looking for speakers that day but when
I saw them just standing there with the unbelievable price tag I had to by them no matter what. I was always very interested in these speakers but
was very please for years with the speakers I had (Mission 705) and never thought to change them. Brought the Polks home and tested side by side for
a week against my Mission's and in the end I decided to move on and go with the RTI A9's as they were newer and sounded better.
These Polks are awesome speakers, crisp highs, natural mids and nice tight bass when powered properly as they are 500 watts each. I just recently
tested a pair of Klipsch RF-82's (RF-800) on my system vs. my RTI A9's and the Polks are definitely a better speaker sound wise, build quality and
esthetics. Don't be fooled by the Klipsch playing louder due to their higher sensitivity. The RTI A9's are basically the same speaker as the older
model RTI12's just with a few small cosmetic changes, less brightness and fuller sound so if you can get your hands on either pair you won't be sorry.
... Winner!! These are rated for 500w per speaker. The power on any receiver you purchase will not be anywhere near what it tells you on the box. (Overinflated, peak power rating) I had these bi-amped with my pioneer 1228k @ 170w /channel. They sounded really good.... But not good enough. I bought a berhinger 3000w power amp....(probably not 3000w either) but more than enough to make these speakers melt your pretty face off. I have these set to "small" in conjunction with a definitive 10" sub and an energy 8" sub. I can't even get these speakers to distort even a little before I start breaking windows in the house. I digress, these speakers sound great bi amped but to really get the most out of them they should be powered with a decent amp. ... And they sound great at lower levels too... yay
These are great sounding if they're powered with a good amplifier. If these are going to be part of a home theater then most likely you will have to bi amp them to get the best out of them. I've had mine for while I couldn't get them to sound right for music till I Bi amped them. But once I did there were no regrets with this purchase. they really do have a life like sound when they get enough power. these will be disappointing with low power amps. you can pay more for something with better looks but you re really going to need to spend to beat them in terms of sound quality.
something to keep in mind is that they are pretty big and heavy too. get someone to help you unbox and move them into place.
