WOW, EVEN WIFE LIKES THEM

 

VERY ATTRACTIVE, PERFECT LISTENING HEIGHT FOR HOME THEATER USE AND AMPLE POWER HANDLING CAPABILITES. MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE SPEAKER. WILL NEED A SUBWOOFER TO ENHANCE YOUR HOME THEATER SYSTEM.

Excellent

 

Rich and warm speakers that are able to hit the high, mid and low frequencies with clarity and distinctiveness. Excellent output (I attached it to a receiver and amplifier). Good investment whether you want the speaker to play solo or with a system.

Overall these speakers are a crazy deal. I was thouroughly impressed with the Speaker cabinet quality, sound clarity, bass and size of the rti 12. But I am very unhappy with the grill design of this product. [...] To sum it up these boys are beasts...

These speakers are gorgeous, first of all. They sound great, however I do agree with everyone else that you need to drive plenty of power to them. I have a Denon AVR-3600 that is 110 watts per and they are bi wired and the Klipsch F3's blow them away....

Just wanted to chime in about power requirements for these bad boys. I tried powering them with my Denon AVR-4802R, 100W of clean high current power, but it wasn't enough. So I bought an Adcom GFA-545 to power the low end drivers (removed the jumpers...

Polk Audio RTi12 Floorstanding Speakers

 

These are FANTASTIC. They have a presence and depth that is unbelievably distinguishable, but you MUST have heavy power to drive them. Remember there are three 7.5" woofers, two 5.25 midrange and a 1" tweeter. That;s a lot of magnets to drive. I have a...
