Real wood. Real high performance.

The RT2000i incorporates several exclusive Polk technologies -- like Dynamic Balance and exclusive Power Port -- and combines them with a heckuva built-in subwoofer. For music or home theater you will luxuriate in deep bass, truly lifelike clarity and surprising three-dimensional imaging. And our real wood finishes perfectly compliment today's natural decor.

And don't feel held back; if you're looking to assemble an exceptional system or fill a very large room with sound, feel free to add a powered sub to your RT2000i set up.

The RT2000i features:

  • Designed for superior home theater and music performance
  • Ground shaking bass from built-in twin 8" subwoofers with a downward-firing Power Port for low distortion; great performance even from low power receivers
  • Dual 8" woofers feature nearly the same surface area as a single 12" woofer but are lighter and more responsive than larger woofers for superior musicality and detail
  • Low level (RCA type) subwoofer inputs
  • Dynamic Balance Driver Cone for wide response and low distortion
  • Dynamic Balance Tri-Laminate Tweeter technology, with vapor deposited micro-layers of stainless steel and aluminum for clear, detailed highs
  • Available in three natural wood finishes, each standard and at no extra cost: choose from Maple, Cherry and Black Oak
  • Magnetically shielded for safe placement next to your TV without picture interference
  • Anti-diffraction driver bezel minimizes grille diffraction for open, spacious, 3-dimensional imaging
  • Slim tower design conserves floor space, the RT2000i occupies less than 1 square foot
  • Gold-plated 5-way binding post inputs for the most secure wire connections
  • Adjustable leveling feet/carpet spikes for the ultimate stability on any type of floor

Wood at Vinyl prices - The first thing you'll notice about the RTi Series is their luxurious real wood finishes: beautiful light Maple, inviting Cherry, and serious Black Oak. What will really surprise you, though, is that you won't pay a premium for these distinctive real wood finishes. Our in-house computer controlled woodworking factory, we can offer these rich finishes at prices you'd normally pay for vinyl.

After the look, there's the sound. Just like the legendary RT Series before them, the RTi Series fit the bill whether you're looking for excellent home theater speakers or truly exceptional and musical speakers (because we all know that home theater speakers really have to do a lot more than just provide good movie sound). These RTi Series speakers have the dynamic range and powerful bass response you want for extraordinary home theater sound, and the clarity, spacious imaging and smooth response necessary to make everything from the latest techno-grunge rock, to your favorite recording of "Don Giovanni" sound simply fantastic.
