Innovative stereo in-ceiling loudspeaker.
8 15/16" Diameter
Stereo Sound from a Single In-Ceiling Speaker
Can’t fit a stereo pair but want stereo sound? RC6s to the rescue. With two tweeters and a dual voice coil woofer, RC6s is literally two speakers in one. Don’t just hear half your music. This special application speaker is the perfect solution to tight spaces such as hallways, bathrooms, corners or foyers.
A unique dual tweeter housing delivers both left & right channel highs, while a vented dual voice coil driver automatically “sums” left & right channel mids for true stereo imaging.
Easy one-cut, drop-in installation puts built-in audio within reach, with Perfect Fit templates, a precision flange, and (available) pre-construction brackets; achieve secure, vibration-free efficiency with a simple turn of the patented Rotating Cam system.
With infinite baffle tuning, RCi speakers utilize the “virtual enclosure” of your in-wall and in-ceiling space to enhance their bass response and smooth low frequency blending with the midrange.
Lightweight and stiff blue polymer cones deliver excellent damping and bass response.
Durable, computer-modeled, injection-molded butyl rubber surrounds suppress unwanted cone resonances for a lifetime of reliable sound.
Aimable swivel tweeters for greater accuracy and more realistic imaging. (All models except RC6s.)
Polk’s proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance® technology allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.
Klippel motor optimization uses laser measurement technology to ensure a smooth excursion path at either end of the volume spectrum for uniform performance at both low and high volumes.
Rustproof stainless steel hardware, durable butyl rubber surrounds and powder coated aluminum (in-ceiling) & painted steel (in-wall) grilles make RCi Series speakers suitable for high moisture areas like bathrooms, transitional spaces or even under eaves or in the ceiling of an enclosed porch. (RCi series are not suitable for exposed outdoor use. For outdoor speaker fun, use our Atrium® Series.)
Paintable grilles let you build them in, and then forget all about them; RCi Series speakers practically disappear into any room.
RCi Series speakers are timbre-matched to other Polk speakers to insure utterly seamless blending from speaker to speaker in systems that combine traditional and built-in speakers.
All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

Perfect for single applications where there is not enough room for two or for pinpointing a specific area.
Do not seem to be any
We used the RC6S Polk speakers in a Dental office to direct sound above patients during exams and in small waiting rooms plus reception and office spaces with individual keypads for every speaker. Great sound in every location. Thank You for your dual imput speaker

Maximise sound where stereo pairing is not practical. Use in arrays to cover large open areas or long hallways.
Haven't found any yet!
I have installed these in bathrooms, kitchens, foyers, dressing rooms, walk in closets and they always sound sweet! I would recommend these speakers to everyone!

Barely noticeable. Very full sound. Love the connectors!
None at all. Great product!!
I use these on new homes and the Builders love them. Ladies love the sound over a garden tub with relaxation music. They are very practical anywhere in a home. The stereo imaging is accurate and stimulates conversation as everyone wonders where the other speakers are. I will use these on every new constrution job. They are outstanding

Impressive sound from a single ceiling speaker.
Songs with a lot of bass can sound "boomy".
I have a small 10'x5' bathroom but also have a small flat panel tv that is about 7' from the shower so I can't hear it. I bought a single RC6s, installed it about 1' away from the shower (these are supposed to tolerate high humidity) and connected it to an audio engine N22 amp. I hooked up the tv and also an old smartphone with Pandora and I now have an awesome bathroom setup. Great sound for a single in-ceiling speaker. Some songs come across "boomy" that have a lot of bass but that is nit-picking. Does anyone else even offer a 2 channel ceiling speaker?
