5 out of 5 eggsNOT BAD AT ALL

Pros: So, these speakers have been amazing, I am currently running them only on 65W of power to each

but will be going up to 145 this weekend

I have found them to be VERY sold and they just SOUND AMAZING

i do recommend having a BIG room for them as if you have them in a tiny room you may just go with rti 5s or 7s

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: if you have questions about anything you can email me pavlovskyrepair@gmail.com

5 out of 5 eggsmis information

Pros: the rti 7 has only one midrange driver,the a9 has 2...these are really great speakers if you have the amp to get them to sing properly..if using anything less than 200 watts you aren't getting the cream these can produce.

Cons: very heavy,but that's actually a good thing as the cabinets don't resonate

Other Thoughts: For the price either these or psb image t6 or kef r series(a bit more but a jump up in quality)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 1

Pros: AMAZING SPEAKERS!! Sound is as clear as i've ever heard. Hearing things in music and movies I haven't heard before. Just be warned these speakers are HUGE. Big and heavy. If you have the room and the coin they are worth it!

Cons: No cons except for maybe the size.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING

Pros: Ok, so i bought these to replace my yamaha 777 s , and boy are these amazing. By far the best speakers ive ever owned

they have amazing bass (no sub needed even thought i have 2)

the highs are amazing at 40 percent power it sounds like some one is standing in front of you and singing!

I would recommend these to ANY ONE who has the BUDGET

i did buy these off here for only 500 (they were on sale for one two days)

and it was the best 2,000 ive ever spent (bought 4)

Cons: they might be heavy for some but heavy means real wood so im not sure if thats a con or pro up to you....

Other Thoughts: GET THEM!!!

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful speakers

Pros: Solid, well-built, beautiful speakers. Unbelievably excellent sound, but that was expected at this level of speaker. Bi-amping is even possible with the dual set of binding posts.

Cons: Packaging is not adequate to survive freight handling. Both Polk Audio and Newegg should understand this by now.
