polkaudio RTi CSi3 Central Channel Loudspeaker


I replaced an old HTIB center speaker with this CSi3 and am definitely satisfied. Granted I\\\'m not an audiophile (I guess that goes without saying... see above reference to HTIB speakers), I am impressed with the sound quality. The size is a bit...

Great sound clarity, reverse design cabinet, real wood look

I suppose it could be smaller

polkaudio RTi CSi3 Central Channel Loudspeaker


I got these because they were on sale - these sport decent sized drivers, and a pretty good albeit bright tweeter. The sound on these seems to be thrown out, not expanded out like the LSi Polk series..which could be a plus or a minus...but were a plus...

Great sound for the price

For $100 more, you can get so much better

I struggled w/ selecting surround sound speakers. Local retailer suggested a much more expensive Polk Audio . After reviewing the very positive user feedback on the PA website, I selected these. The sound coming from this unit is excellent. They are...

excellent choice for center channel speaker

would be nice if a bit smaller

Since the sound system in almost all TV's is not as good as a theater system and yet one does not want to clog a bedroom with such a system, I found the Polk Center Channel Speaker as a great substitute. Excellent sound and yet relatively small speaker.

Has the efficiency of a home theater system and yet it is only one small unit

polkaudio RTi CSi3 Central Channel Loudspeaker


I got this as a center channel speaker for a pair of Polk RT-8 and a pair of Boston Acoustics 150 speakers. The speaker is a reasonable center channel speaker, but you can really hear the difference between it and the full range speakers in my system...

Matches other Polk speakers, both in terms of sound and construction. Flexible placement options

Size. Mid-range vocals could be a little clearer

polkaudio RTi CSi3 Central Channel Loudspeaker


I?ve nerve had a center channel speaker before, and did not realize the importance of the center speaker until I hooked up all the speakers. In most listening modes, a significant portion of the sound come from the center speaker. Due to my budget...

Sound clarity and accuracy. Slim low profile design. Price

Lack of bass

Product Specifications

Design-enhanced surround diffusion characteristics on the new FXi Bi-Directional Surround Speakers include triangular cabinets that aim the drivers and tweeters in opposing directions to produce a more realistically diffuse wave front and wide, lifelike imaging of surround-sound FX, and a conveniently located bipole/dipole switch for the most flexible placement options and highest performance surround effects. Floating grilles compliment the real wood finishes and softened contours of the new FXi Series Surround FX Loudspeakers. Metallic elements add a touch of modern style to these classic Polk Audio high performance speakers.
