About the Polk Audio RTi38
This ear-pleasing pair carries on Polk's legacy of impressive bookshelf speakers, using designs inherited from their exceptional RTi tower series. Thanks to a 6-1/2" Dynamic Balance® driver, the RTi38 provides amazing bass output for its size it goes all the way down to 49 Hz! Power Port™ technology ensures that the bass is clean and powerful, while a 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter adds smooth, accurate highs. The drivers are mounted on a raised bezel, effectively reducing unwanted grille diffractions. Another convenient little feature: the Power Port assembly doubles as a bracket, for easy wall-mounting. And you'll love the real wood veneer available in a cherry or black finish!

Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.
Blue Composite Woofers: The speaker uses dual blue composite Dynamic Balance woofers for clean midrange and deep, accurate bass. For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.
Silk/Polymer Tweeter: The improved Dynamic Balance silk/polymer tweeter provides clear, detailed highs.
Bass Reflex: There is a single port tube opening on the rear of the speaker for increased and extended bass response.
5-Way Binding Posts: The gold plated 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Wall Mounting: There is a key hole slot on the back of the speakers for wall mounting.
Timbre Matched: This speaker uses the same components as the rest of the Polk Audio RTi Series. This timbre-matching (voice-matching) results in a more realistic, more seamless surround environment.
Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 38Hz-27kHz. The -3dB frequency response is 49Hz-26kHz.
Speaker Impedance: The manual incorrectly lists the speaker's nominal impedance as 4 ohms. The impedance is 8 ohms.
