About the Polk Audio RTi8
When it comes to high-impact home theater and music, Polk's tower speakers deliver. The RTi8, sold individually, sports Polk's latest-generation Dynamic Balance® drivers for smooth, wide-open response with extremely low distortion a redesigned 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter provides stellar treble extension, and dual 6-1/2" woofers dish out full, satisfying mids and lows. Add the handsome real wood veneer, and you've got yourself a great-sounding tower speaker that looks great, too.
The RTi8 bolsters the bass with Polk's unique Power Port technology; it delivers lifelike bass that you can feel as well as hear. Plus, Polk's ARC (Acoustic Resonance Control) port technology ensures rich, natural mids. Other details include two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts for biamping or biwiring and anti-diffraction grilles for a large, open, three-dimensional soundstage with pinpoint-accurate stereo imaging. Adjustable spikes provide stability on both carpeted and hardwood floors.
Pick up a pair of RTi8s for stereo music or for front left and right speakers in a home theater setup. Plus, you can add the RTi8 as surround speakers in a 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 surround sound system.

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.
Polymer Composite Woofers: The speaker features two 6-1/2" polymer composite woofers for smooth wide-range response with low distortion. For high performance durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.
Silk/Polymer Tweeter: The speaker has a 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter that provides clear, detailed highs. The tweeter uses a heat sink on the Neodymium magnet for superior heat dissipation, power handling and reliability.
Acoustically Inert Cabinet: The speaker cabinet features all-MDF construction with extensive internal bracings that virtually eliminate sound-muddying resonance.
Power Port Venting System: The speaker has a rear-firing Power Port venting system built into its back plate for precise deep bass response. This venting system allows air velocity to slow gradually, vastly reducing air turbulence, and delivering greater bass efficiency than conventional ports.
Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC): Internal cabinet resonance can impart a "thick" character to voices. Polk's patented Acoustic Resonance Control port system overcomes this problem. In addition to the Power Port venting system, the speaker has a front-firing port that is tuned to suppress the internal cabinet resonance, resulting in smooth, natural midrange reproduction.
Anti-Diffraction Grille: The floating anti-diffraction grille minimizes grille diffraction for spacious, 3-dimensional imaging.
Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The speaker has two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts connected by gold-plated jumpers. Using the dual 5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speaker.
Magnetically Shielded: The speaker is magnetically shielded, allowing you to place it near your television without distorting the picture.
Adjustable Leveling Spike Feet: The adjustable leveling spike feet mounted on the stabilizer bars provide stability on any type of flooring.
Frequency Response Note: The overall frequency response is 30Hz-27kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 40-26kHz.
Dimension Note: The main body of the speaker is 7.767" wide. The stabilizer bars extend beyond each side of the speaker, giving the speaker an overall width of 10.953".
