Why settle for vinyl speakers when you can have the warmth and beauty of real wood at the same price? RTi Series features real wood at vinyl prices.
Acoustically inert MDF cabinets, finished in Real Cherry Wood or Real Black Oak veneers.
Dynamic Balance polymer composite driver for smooth wide-range response with low distortion.
PowerPort® bass venting for superior clean, low distortion bass that you can really feel.
Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC Port) technology for more natural midrange reproduction.
1" silk dome Dynamic Balance tweeter features a neodymium magnet for clear, detailed highs; heat-sinked for superior heat dissipation, power handling and reliability.
PowerPort® vent doubles as a strong, built-in wall-mounting bracket for easy, safe placement.
Butyl rubber surrounds for high performance durability.
Acoustically inert stamped driver baskets.
Floating anti-diffraction grilles minimize grille diffraction for spacious, 3-dimensional imaging.
Magnetic shielding for safe placement near video sources.
Mylar bypass capacitors in the crossovers extend high frequency response and improve detail and transparency.
Dual, bi-ampable gold-plated 5-way binding post inputs (with wide holes for large-gauge bare wire connections) for the most secure connections and the most versatile wiring applications. (Both models! True bi-wire and bi-amp-ability!)
Timbre-matched to fit into any Polk Audio home theater or multi-channel music system for a more realistic, more seamless surround sound environment.
Clean lines and radiant metallic details contribute to the superior fit and finish of the new RTi Series Bookshelf Loudspeakers. They deliver superior dynamic impact in smaller cabinet sizes, with no lack of patented Polk Audio technologies, for use as main/front speakers, or direct radiating surround speakers, in high performance A/V or music-only systems.
***Qualifications for Karma?***
For any newer members, Club Polk Karma is something that is given away for FREE by a CP member, to another CP member. You respond to the Karma question prior to the date it's closed, you get entered into the drawing and eventually someone wins. The actual drawing for the winner varies in how it is performed but its essentially a "names in a hat" method. That's pretty simple eh?
ANYWAYS, here we go....
"Why should the member before you win these speakers instead of you?"
In other words, the member who posted prior to you...get it? :D
***Requirements for Posting***
You must have at least 25 posts. This would mean you have Private Message(PM) capability which may be neccesary to contact you, so please enable this feature in your profile.
I know it may be a little difficult for a newer Polkie to elaborate about someone they haven't really met or interacted with yet....just do your best. You could read some other posts and/or check out the search engine for old threads if you want. This forum is a wealth of information for way more than Polk Audio, check it out.
Be honest, be candid, be real....or be funny and creative, just don't get mean or crude.
KARMA WILL END ON SUNDAY 12/17/06 @ MIDNITE
I'll announce the winner Sunday nite and work on having them shipped as soon as personal information has been exchanged. Stay tuned so you can get them quick!
Merry Christmas....Happy Holidays....Kwanzaa....Chanukkaa....whatever, this is a completely non-denominational Karma. Thanks for reading :)
