Background: First off I am writing this based on my experience with many Polk Audio products, including: other Vanishing/RT series speakers, TSi 400 floor standers, CS20 center, OWM 3'S and 5'S, and finally several subs such as the DSW Micro PRO 1000, DSW Pro 550wi, and PW125. In the past i have also owned several products by "high end" brands such as B&O, Martin Logan, etc... The point I mean to make is that I am PICKY when it comes to sound!
Setup: 20x30ft basement, 8-10ft split ceiling, 105" front projection, 5.1 config, in ceiling Polk 620RT speakers, DSW PRO 550wi sub (wireless). Each speaker is wired with 14/4 CL3 in wall/ceiling.
Use: I installed this center channel to replace a 620RT which had been improperly installed by an audio/video tech in my dads basement home theater/multipurpose room. The guy installed the speaker between two joists which was occupied by a 120v AC line; the line rested on the back of the driver and the inductive field fried it lol...
Installation: I actually mounted this speaker in-ceiling as opposed to the reccomended in-wall application - I took a chance and it paid off in the end! The included cardboard drywall cutting template worked nicely and all of the screw-clamp type mounts were easy to tighten and have needed no adjustment after a year or use. Score 5/5.
Sound quality: This speaker produces a wonderfully broad sound stage considering its compact form factor and flush mount design. For just two 5-1/2" drivers bass note reproduction out of the box is on par with the larger 620RT's installed in the LF/RF/RR/LR. However, before a good 85-90 break in period mid-tones appeared flat and even muffled. This issue partially resolved itself after getting some hours through the speakers.

I'm using this as the center channel speaker for a 5.1 sound system. I used all polk audio vanishing series speakers (65-RT front speakers and 620-RT for the surrounds) with a Yamaha RX-671 receiver. I appreciated the swivel tweeter feature since I wasn't able to place my speaker in the ideal position. I had a stud near the center of the wall were I have my TV and couldn't place the center channel exactly in the middle. I really like the sound produced by the vanishing series speakers in general and love the clarity which you hear with all various instruments used in music. Like many other in-wall speakers the base is not that great but for me it doesn't matter since I have a subwoofer as well.

It sounds great! It is definitely worth the money. I had another center speaker and I am glad that I upgraded.

Great item, matches well with my Polk RC55i front highs, rear, and rear surrounds. This grill is a little harder to take apart to properly paint, you have to bend around 12 tabs up to remove the metal speaker mesh from the frame, and then the cloth from the metal. The grill attaches to the speaker with magnets. I preferred the RC55i speaker grill in regards to ease of painting, but this grill looks cleaner when installed.

Installed this speaker as a center speaker underneath my wall mounted 65" tv and it looks and sound great. What a nice improvement from my JVC center chanel standard speaker that looked ugly compared to an in-wall speaker. Installation was a breeze, sound is awesome, wife is happy my old college speakers are gone and the basement looks professional. Don't hesitate to buy.
