Bottom Line:   
These speakers are outstanding. The imaging is remarkable. Clarity and accuracy are outstanding. I had read that these speakers are power hungry and that the bass could be overwhelming. I find the bass is appropriate without being loose or disproportionate. The midrange and high end are fluid, crisp, and precise.

With that said, a 120 wpc receiver is perhaps enough for home theater applications but serious music listening requires more power than your average receiver is likely able to provide. Nonetheless, even nominal power will allow the listener to appreciate the musical accuracy and aural delight these speakers provide.

The most striking thing about these speakers is their versatility. They sound incredible listening to practically any genre of music. Rock,pop,classical, and ESPECIALY JAZZ are all reproduced with similar sonic purity and elegance.

Overall, these are outstanding speakers, especially if you have the amplifier power to really make them sing! Fortunately, many reviewers of these speakers got them for much less than the original retail as they were replaced by the new RTi series. At these reduced prices I doubt a better deal could be had for such a great sounding speaker-they would have been a great value even at their original retail price.

Bottom Line:   
The RTI150's are really good speakers. I was not really a big fan of polk audio. I've listen to their car speakers which really suck!!! Their lower end shelf speakers aren't that bad, but I am a firm believer that their high end tower speakers are great quality. The RTi150's high's have incrediable depth and imaging. The mix of the 5" 1/4 and 3 6" really gives you a awesome mid-range. The speakers just do a really great job reproducing difficult music such as clasical, jazz, and vocal. Cranking these speakers to heavy rock really delivers a filled, but tight sound as well.

My setup
Samsung 61" DLP
RTi150
Harmon Kardon 325
HSU VTF-3 Subwoofer
Denon 1600 DVD/CD
CS400i Center channel

Polk RTi150........

I am looking at a used pair of these. What I am wondering is, will my new AVR630 be able to drive these babies? Being that I am new to this Audiophile hobby. How does one tell wether a receiver will be able to put out enough for a particular speaker? Not sure if I worded that correctly. Any hel ... Read More »

Polk RTi150, Any good? Fry has them for $598

I'm looking for some new full range mains for my HT system that will let me lessen the role of my sub (Velo CT100) so my system can be more musical. Currently have NHT Super Ones in the front, that I'll move to the back. The RTi150 claim their -3db point is 26hz and 26khz. Thats full range enough ... Read More »
