Hello Friends... I Am Going to give the review about this product.. I do not know about another similar product...because when i got this product ... Polk Audio no doubt has some fine designs to talk about when it comes to high performance home-audio products. And for now. You can count on the Polk RTi A5 for clean, precise music and high-impact home theater.

SAFE LIMITS OF OPERATION Polk Audio specifies the recommended amplification range for each of its passive (non-amplified) loudspeakers. Typically that specification will be expressed as a range of power such as 20-200 Watts (per channel). It is important to understand what those numbers mean when choosing a receiver or amplifier for your Polk loudspeakers. The lower number indicates the lowest continuous rated power that will yield acceptable performance in a typical listening environment. The higher number indicates the highest per channel power that should be used with your Polk speakers. That number should not be confused with a Power Handling specification and it does not imply that the speaker will safely handle that full amount of power on a long-term basis. We specify a wide range of power ratings because not all electronics manufacturers use the same method for rating power. In fact, high quality lower-rated amplifiers sound better and play louder than low quality units with higher power rating. Automobile horsepower is good analogy. Your car probably has far more horsepower than it needs for your daily commute and is likely capable of going well over 120mph (190km/hr). Having that extra power is good for on-ramp acceleration and danger avoidance (like getting away from brain-eating zombies) but that doesnt mean that it is advisable to operate your car on North American highways at full power and maximum speed for an extended period of time. Just ask your local state trooper if you are in doubt. Similarly, we recommend using amplifiers and receivers with rated power above the Power Handling limits of our speakers because having extra power available for short term peaks is conducive to better sound quality, maximum dynamic range and effortless high volume output. But we strongly urge you not to use the full power of your amplifier or receiver for daily listening. Loudspeakers can be damaged when an amplifier, regardless of its wattage, is made to play at higher listening levels than its power can clearly produce. Operation at this level can result in very high levels of audible distortion originating in the amplifier, which can add a harsh, gritty sound to your listening material. If you hear distortion turn the volume down or risk damaging your speakers. You can damage just about any speaker, regardless of power rating, if you drive an amplifier to or beyond the point of distortion. TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE OR SERVICE If, after following the hookup directions, you experience difficulty, please doublecheck all wire connections. Should you isolate the problem to the speaker, contact the authorized Polk Audio dealer where you made your purchase, or contact Polk Audio Customer Service 800-377-7655 (M-F, 9-6 EST, US & Canada only) or via email Outside the US & Canada, call 410-358-3600.

Technical specifications

Full description

All RTi models feature the latest generation Dynamic Balance drivers and tweeters. The bass/midrange drivers used throughout the RTi range use polymer/mineral composite cones. The 1-inch tweeter is a silk/polymer composite dome for smoother response and better detail than the tweeter used in the previous RTi Series. It features a neodymium magnet, low-viscosity ferro-fluid cooling and a heat sink on the back of the magnet for better power handling and reliability. All models feature Polk's patented Power Port technology that reduces turbulence at the mouth of the port. Power Port vastly reduces "chuffing" or "port noise" and provides deeper, more powerful, lower distortion bass than could be achieved with conventional ported or sealed designs of comparable size. The RTi models are magnetically shielded to allow safe placement next to televisions or video monitors. All models feature gold plated 5-way binding posts with dual inputs for bi-amplification or bi-wiring. RTi A5 is a floor-standing model and features "Power Port Plus", an enhancement in Power Port technology. Power Port Plus uses two ports (one front, one rear) and internal "plates" to further reduce air turbulence and increase bass efficiency.
