  1. PS_in_Idaho

    At first I thought they were tinny, but they just needed a few days to break in. Now they sound fantastic. A lot of bass for being in-wall. However, I now have a cross-over at 80Hz and let the sub take care of the low end. They were easy to install and look great.Update: 9April2019These continue to get better as we use them more. The other night we watched Aquaman and I didn’t realize the subwoofer was off until after the movie was over and I went over to turn off the receiver. There was a good amount of low end just from the RC85i’s and so I didn’t even notice. After I noticed this I turned everything back on and of course when paying attention the bass was much more prominent, but watching the movie without even noticing the subwoofer was off says a lot for these speakers.Update July 17, 2019: These continue to fully impress me. I changed my set and removed the crossover as these have an 8″ sub and should have been ok with the lower frequencies, and I can confirm that they are. I like it without the crossover as the bass is more full, but I did have to turn down my dedicated sub as a lot more bass is now coming from these front speakers. I really like them and would 100% buy them again.Read more

    The installation of these speakers look great. I’m not surprised that the sound quality is awesome as well. Amazon has a combo purchase of these with the center speaker and two rear/ceiling speakers, which I was happy to have taken advantage of. I finished off the setup with Polk’s 12″ subwoofer as well.I had read that some customers noticed that there was some rattling from the mesh covers – I have not experienced this at all after some loud movies. Even during installation, the mesh covers fit very snug and don’t give me any reason to believe that they will be an issue in the future.Read more

    The sounds is great and the price can’t be beat. 5 stars on the speaker output and quality.One star deduction for the plastic rough-in components. If you are not careful screwing the self-closing clamps of the housing to the drywall during installation, you will crack the plastic and it will no longer hold the wall. Be careful and gentle and you will not have any issues. If you rush or force this, you will have one or two corners broken and not snug to the wall.Read more

    I’ve used these in-walls for front left and right channels as well as rear channel speakers mounted in the ceiling. Serving as front channel speakers, the sound quality is great, although a little flat compared to bookshelf type speakers. If you want speakers out of the way these are a good way to go without spending exorbitant amounts of money. I sold the home we originally had these speakers installed in.My current home theater setup has an unforgiving rear channel space. It’s an open floor layout and there are simply no reasonable locations to mount rear channel speakers, so I opted for these in the ceiling to give it a trim appearance. They’re not really designed for this purpose but they do get the job done. You can aim the tweeters for directional sound at least. All in all, these speakers are very worthy of consideration.Read more

  5. Steven G. Smith

    These speakers were easy to install, and I was really pleasantly surprised at how nicely they sound. I’m using these primarily for background music, and they produce nice sound, and have a neat, clean look on the wall. Are these going to rock your world and open new levels of depth and height to your music you hadn’t experienced before? No. Will these be the perfect speakers for the new dance floor for your late night circuit parties? No. But at $150 a pair, they are probably going to give you the most bang for your buck out there for general use, and if you have a small house like me, the extra floor space and lack of clutter is invaluable. If the goal is to add surround speakers, or some background music while you are getting a shower, cooking, entertaining, or reading a book, I doubt you’ll find more value for your money. I’m certainly pleased. A tip for installation: take it easy tightening the screws that anchor the speaker to the wall. I used setting 1 (the weakest) on my power drill, and it still managed to break one of the plastic clips off that anchors it to the wall in the back. So, I’d recommend tightening the screws by hand, until they are snug, but not too tight to avoid this. Also, if you have old lathe and plaster walls, consider hiring a professional unless you are experienced. It’ll be worth it to avoid the mess and frustration if you screw up. Otherwise, I think installation is rather intuitive and straight forward.Read more

    Got these today. Could not wait to install them As the other reviews said, Polk made it a breeze. Measure your spot; check for wall studs; tape up and trace the supplied template; cut out drywall, connect wires and lock it down. They sound amazing (I am watching JAWS right now) and these speakers are making the shark even scarier!!!I opted for the 8 inch woofer model and I am happy I did. Combined with my Earthquake subwoofer, there is plenty down low and up top. I will strongly consider the smaller Polk audio speakers for the rear channels now that this was so easy.Read more

  7. Joel Krueger

    I used these as my front presence speakers and the rear surround on a 9.1 system with my yahama RX-A3060 receiver. They have great sound for movies and music. Only true audiophiles would be able to find something to complain about these speakers. I walfalled for a week between the 6″ and 8″ models. The 6″ are more than adequate for my application.Read more

  8. Nickshorty

    Love these speakers. Installed in wall in new basement build. Contracter left boxes with the wire pulled through. Only complaint is that unless you are in the center of a wall cavity, the arms hit the studs on the sides and won’t anchor well. Would like it better if they could be adjusted to ancher top and bottom rather than sides. Because it doesn’t let you change it, the bottom corner of my speaker sticks out a bit from the wall.Read more
