The sound isn't really coming from out of thin air, though your guests may think so. The frame and grill of the RC80i in-wall speakers are paintable to match virtually any décor. Its round design mimics the look of recessed lighting. The easy install cam locks make installation a four step process, cut hole, run wire, install speaker, enjoy the music.

These full range speakers have a 35Hz to 20kHz frequency response so you don't even need to find a place to hide a subwoofer. The mid/woofer is an 8" mineral filled polymer cone and the tweeter is a 1" metalized soft dome tweeter. The tweeter is swivel mounted in a ball-and-socket joint so you can precisely aim the sound.

These speakers use durable, moisture resistant materials so they are safe to use in bathrooms, kitchens, or under the eaves. They are tuned to use the in-wall space as a virtual enclosure for fantastic bass response.

  • newegg An Unobtrusive Addition to Your Home With an "out of the box and into the wall or ceiling" design, the Polk Audio RC80i can be easily flush mounted into the wall or ceiling for seamless integration into your home without the space requirements of conventional speaker systems.

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.
