Smooth, Powerful, Refined...

I've had these for several months now as front towers in a 5.1 system. Nice wide soundstage. Not fussy about room placement. Look nice, and hold their own against the likes of our Paradigm Studio Reference 60's, at a fraction of the price very well. I'm miffed. Some say they can sound forward or treble- heavy, but they sound warm and smooth with plenty of mid and bass punch, and shimmering 3D highs when played through our Marantz SR7010 avr. Solid build with Genuine wood veneer cabs, gold plated binding posts, 5 year parts and labour warranty, 250w of power etc. make these speakers very easy to like.

Love em

Excellent sound quality, paired them with Bose rear bookshelves and 12" Polk sub, Polk centre channel soon to come. Bought online local store had none, arrived 3 days later. Love having surround sound again, makes movie watching so much better.

Wicked Home Theater Fronts

Bought these 4 weeks ago and all I can say is perfect. Building my HT room and have been researching for months as to how I want my set up. I was looking at the RTIA7's but they only have 1 mid and 2 subs. Everybody knows when your buying for a HT you should have a dedicated Sub. That was Reason #1 reason #2 was with a dedicated sub I wanted my fronts to have 2 mids each, which is perfect for HT rooms. The RTIA5's look great and sound awesome. For Subs check out SVS they are one wicked Sub no joke. Sorry for all the rambling it's just I've put alot of time into researching speakers for HT use and it's nice to see honest reviews. Polk CSI A6 center sounds AWESOME mixed with the RTI A5. Peace

Polk, you've done it again.

A marked improvement over previous generation towers. The RTIA5's put out a beautifully deep tone in the low end (without even introducing a sub to the setup) and the mids/highs from the component tweets have an equally impressive range, adding to the beefy 6.5" drivers. With 250 watts handling per speaker, I run them off a 150 watt channel each, and they howl - without any noteable distortion. Extememly pleased with these towers, especially for the money.
