    Default RTi Series. . .Where to buy?

    Hello.

    I'm a newbie, though I've been lurking for several weeks before actually joining the forum. I have a pretty dumb question. I live in Southern California (San Fernando Valley Area). Does anyone know a store that I can find the RTi Series? Polk lists Circuit City and Frys as the major chains that carry Polks, but Circuit City doesn't carry this line and both Frys stores I went to had damaged speakers as their demos and even worse customer service. The other dealers that Polk lists seem to be non-existant store fronts. . .strange. Any advice on a reputable store where I can actually listen to a non-damaged speaker would be awesome!!!

    Thanks,
    Eric. . .

    Hey Eric,

    It sucks, but I think Frys is it...up in NorCal too. My recommendation is to use their 30 day return policy and give them a listen at home. I did and was impressed though it just wasn't what I was looking for. Frys demo rooms are cluttered, but you should be able to give them a comparative listen between models. Trust me, they'll be much better at home.

    Thanks for the advice. I was afraid that Fry's was it.

    The closest Tweeter store is "only" about 60 miles from me. I ended up dealing with the Fry's BS and purchasing a pair of RTI8's at Fry's over the weekend. I probably spent as much time waiting for them to get the speakers out of the back for me as I would have driving to Tweeter and back. On a plus note, I love the speakers. A total improvement over the R50's that I had. I'll probably end up at tweeter at some point in time since my next upgrade will most likely be a pair of FXI3 surrounds. Fry's doesn't carry these.
