Are these speakers fire rated

Asked by: Rabb
Hello, The speaker itself is not fire resistant but can be placed inside an enclosure that is fire rated. It is recommend that it is placed inside an enclosure if there will be anything that could potentially touch the rear of the speaker like insulation.

I am looking for front and rear speakers (In-Wall) to be paired with Sony STRAN1000 avr. Sony is 165 watts per channel into 6 ohms, but does not give an 8 ohm power output. What Polk in-wall speakers will work with Sony STRAN1000??

Asked by: DrBob
Hello, Since 8ohms is a higher resistance compared to 6ohms, there will be a constriction of power going into the speakers themselves. In essence, almost all of our in wall speakers will be okay to use with this AVR and as long as you are not driving them excessively loud, then you will be safe to use them.

Hello, What is the difference between the V85 and the RC85i? Thank you, 

Asked by: Griz
Hello, the Polk Audio RC85I In-Wall speaker comes equipped with a swivel mount Hard-Dome tweeter and an 8" Polypropylene woofer—frequency response of 50-20K. The V85 In-Wall speaker comes equipped with a swivel mount Silk Dome tweeter and an 8" Composite Polymer woofer—frequency response of 45-25K. The RC85I speakers are sold in pairs, whereas the V85 is sold as each. The V85 is considered a step up from the RC85I and includes a wafer-thin sheer grill resulting in a virtually invisible installation.

I want to mount speakers in an insulated wall. Will the insulation affect the speaker if it touching the speaker? Would there be any concern for over heating?

Asked by: Red Wolf
Hi Red Wolf, It is a good idea to make a back for any in-wall speaker if there are concerns about insulation being in contact with the rear of the loudspeaker. Spirited volume levels can cause the voice coil to get warmer than might be safe.
