|Experience sound quality that pushes past the boundaries of ordinary speakers with the Polk Audio RTiA9 speaker. This floorstanding speaker model exemplifies all the qualities of a high-quality audio speaker. The sleek design of the real wood finish enhances the decor of any room, and the compact design takes up a minimum of floor space. This stereo beast by Polk utilizes the DAHLI design and Klippel optimization so listeners get to enjoy clear audio even at high- or low-volume levels. Besides looking chic, the curvature of the cabinet also provides rich and accurate sound. The 500-watt power capability provides listeners with a wide range of listening options that remain optimized for clear and crisp audio enjoyment.This is the top of the RTi line system from Polk, both in size and quality. The massive 500-watt capacity means that you will benefit most from this floorstanding unit if you connect it to a large driver. A receiver might not get you enough wattage, so an amp might be necessary. You should aim to be able to drive at least 200 watts to each unit. The sheer amount of force and size of the unit means you will be able to fill very large rooms with tons of sound.In terms of what is actually inside each of the RTiA9 units, there is a total of six transducers. At the top, there are two 5.25-inch midrange transducers with a small 1-inch tweeter in between them. Each component has its own separate housing for greater purity. Below you will find three big bass woofers, each 7 inches in diameter and with PowerPort technology to prevent the tones in this range from being trapped inside the cabinet. The combined effect leads to enormous sound. Each RTiA9 has a teardrop profile if you look at it from the top down, an approach that minimizes internal resonance. Polk also layers on the Damped Asymmetric Hex Laminate Isolation, or DAHLI, system, which provides a set of six permeable layers on the inside of the wood veneer for additional resonance reduction. That veneer can come in either cherry or black, which means the speakers will fit in best with furniture made of dark woods, although the finish is of high quality and can fit into most decors. That's important considering the size and space a pair of these will take up. The quality of tone coming out of the floor-standing speakers is clear at both high and low volumes. The highs are fully discernible, the mids are incredibly detailed, and the low end is dense and strong. A subwoofer is purely optional since these speakers do so well with bass already. The soundstage is wide and deep no matter the volume and range. This makes these speakers useful for a variety of functions, including music that ranges from classical to heavy meta, as well as home theater applications. Even DTS and surround sound on 4K Blu-ray discs can boom clearly from these Polk speakers. The audio spectrum makes these speakers as effective for conveying the soundtrack for a party as they are for capturing the detail of a whisper.|

Good sound quality
Beautifully designed audio beasts!
Aside from being the most beautifully designed speakers I've owned they are also the best sounding! I push these with a Pioneer Elite receiver and they sound great! I've pushed them as loud as I could stand without using hearing protection and they didn't even seem to budge. I searched for over a year before buying these and it was definitely worth the wait. They are well balanced speakers in my opinion. I know they are pricey and I am very fortunate to own a pair. If you have the resources, do yourself a favor and give these bad boys a try. I still can't believe it every time I crank these speakers! Thanks Polk Audio! God Bless!
very happy with the speakers
wonderful sound. big bucks, but it's worth it. The packaging was destroyed on 4 of the 5 polk audio products and one of the RTiA9s had to be replaced. But the sound is wonderful, the features are very complementary. I got the black instead of Cherry. I was concerned that the black might be too bland looking, but the cherry might be too flashy. the black is classy, real wood. Hooked up to a denon amp, and the whole package works very well. TV, pandora, my FLAC collection, vinyl, blu ray, it all sounds exactly like it should. Also bought: CSA6, FXA4, PSW10
well balanced all around sound, handles the full range
but if you are going to buy a good sub you are paying some bass you are not going to be able to use with this speaker. i bought dsw4000 sub to go with the pair of polk rti a9 i bought not so long ago. from a cost effective point of view, i should've just bought a pair of rti a7 or even the model below it. you would still get the same overall performance. if you have dsw4000 or a sub of similar quality, a9 is an overkill because it can do a lot of good bass by itself, but not to the magnitude of a good well-powered sub. it won't shake your house.

I WAS WORRIED MY ONKYO 100W RECIEVER WOULDNT HAVE THE BALLS TO POWER UP AND DRIVE THESE 500W SPEAKERS,...... HOWEVER,......... THE SOUND QUALITY IS UNBELIEVEABLE. I USED 10GA SPEAKER WIRE TO CONNECT. BRINGS LISTENING TO YOUR FAV. MUSIC TO A NEW LEVEL.

Polk Audio is a great company that makes top quality products. These speakers are truly unbelievable! The quality, look, and sound, cannot be compared. Once you listen to them you know. You don't even have to crank them to hear what I mean. But if you do you will be blown away. These are the best!
