What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Polk Audio RTI A7 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
  • Unoxing was kind of a chore but a good one the wood seems to be a very good quality and the weight of them keeps them stable and on the ground.
  • I can only add that these guys are heavy! Not easy to move around, but that is in part what makes them such fantastic speakers ... recommendable.
  • Considering the size and quality of construction, they aren't overly heavy either (~60 lbs.)
  • These are big, heavy speakers but fit they into any decor and because they are thin--only about 9 inches wide--- they actually don't take much space.
  • These sound great but are super heavy. Do not attempt to lift them alone. But once you get them set-up, they are sweet.
Polk Audio S60 Signature Series Floor Standing Speaker
  • The speakers are big and heavy but the sound quality justifies buying these.
  • Way bigger than I expected. Which is good. Awesome sound. Nice looks.
  • Speakers are tall, are of good quality and look good in the room I have set up.
  • They are impressively tall. They look good, and are well made. I am very satisfied.
  • These speakers are tall and heavy so you will not be hiding them or moving them around to often.

What customers say about "Audio"
Polk Audio RTI A7 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
  • The sound of these speakers is simply thrilling: beautiful, clear, spatial, accurate sound.
  • These speakers sound equally good with music and movies, having had the chance to test them out pretty extensively since getting them just over a month ago.
  • Mid- and High-range detail are exceptional on the RTI A7s, really light years ahead of my old dinosaurs, and perfect for HD formats like BluRay or SACD.
  • Another quick note is that when brand-new they sounded a bit bright, but now that I've had time to break them in that issue is gone.
  • The only downside is the fact that they require a lot of power to sound great.
Polk Audio S60 Signature Series Floor Standing Speaker
  • Sound quality using S60’s is excellent, confirming what other reviewers have reported.
  • The bass is well behaved and powerful and does not overpower the top end.
  • Piano and drums sound full and natural, as you'd expect from Polk.
  • Detail of instruments in the mid range and hi end have a lot of power and texture--adding to the overall enjoyment of this fine speaker.
  • Polk makes nice speakers that sound good and these do just that--They sound great.
