Polk Audio White Round 8" High Performance In-Ceiling Speaker Pair

The beefy big 8-inch woofer of the RC80i makes a big beastly impact, with the maximum amount of bass you're likely to encounter from an in-ceiling speaker. The RC80i is perfect for areas requiring big, rich sound with good coverage, but with no room for traditional speaker clutter. Designed for superior wide dispersion, you'll hear great sound no matter where you are in the room.


Polk Audio
  • Easy one-cut, drop-in installation puts built-in audio within reach, with Perfect Fit templates, a precision flange, and (available) pre-construction brackets.
  • 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.).
  • 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 or even under eaves of an enclosed porch. (RCi series are not suitable for exposed outdoor use).
  • RCi speakers have paintable grilles and 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Great Value. Solid sound, directional tweeter. Easy to install

Cons: Better speakers exist...but not for the money. Would be nice if the option to buy one at time existed as I am using one as a center channel.

Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these in my ceiling as fronts/center and then two of the 60i as rears. Solid in-ceiling speakers for the price.

Very easy to install with the included templates.

5 out of 5 eggs80i excellent

Pros: great price, very inconspicuos, great sound

Cons: absolutely none

Other Thoughts: using these as surrounds to begin the upgrade of an otherwise fairly cheap system and about an upgrade! i expected they would sound better but amazed at how much better...they really sound excellent; crisp, clear and just about perfect. installation was not not difficult once you get past cutting holes in your ceiling. unbelievable price for an great set of speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Very easy install, Comes with template, Includes paint template.

The sound quality is good, not great, but for a set of speakers in my bathroom it works well, if you are looking for theater quality sound, look elsewhere, but for a environmental speaker this is great.

According to the instructions you can use these in bathrooms, kitchens, saunas, anyplace the speaker can be sealed in and protect the electronics on top.

Cons: It only fastens to the sheathing, so for my bathroom 5/8 drywall. I added a bit of extra reinforcement as I don't want screws popping or any rattling.

Other Thoughts: I did alot of research on speakers, and after finding these I couldn't pass them up for the price and performance.

I am planning on getting a few more pair for the dining room, kitchen, and out by the pool.
