Polk Audio RC60i - Left wanting more
I originally purchased two pairs of the RC60i to complete my 7.1 theater system but both pairs ended up being mounted in my covered patio; this was based on pre-cut holes on patio sized for 6 inch rounds. Generally I thought they would be too small for the application and the 6" cone may not move enough air mass. To my surprise they actually produce decent bass, but the tweeter seems to really struggle for any type of fidelity. Basically I have a old 2 channel Rotel amp driving my second zone with 60-80 Watts per speaker. I have adjusted the tone/treble higher and this has made some improvement in the highs but in the end the highs still seem to struggle between vocals and instruments (cymbals etc.). Overall they are fair, do I think the 8" version would be better? Well maybe but if you are expecting more than a wall of mono like sound the next grade up in the Polk line might be the answer or another product. I also run these a little stronger than background levels, but Polk kind of missed the mark here.
Pros: Very affordable and even better when on close out or scratch and dent. Aesthetically pleasing, ease of install
Cons: Sound is generally vague and or flat, surprisingly the tweeter is what cant cut the mustard!
