I sat at American TV for an hour comparing these and the klipsch. Klipsch had great highs, but Polk sounded warmer and easier on the ears. I can turn these up as loud as I want and my amp overloads before they distort. One thing I don't like is their length. I am having a hard time finding a stand for them that I feel can hold them correctly. Match them up with a nice sub for the best experience.

I wonder why someone will buy a speaker this size and expect bass like a subwoofer!!! I have tried so many surround sound preamps on this speakers. Rotel, Sony Ep9es, Sony 9000es, . Honestly speaking, the two Sony products brought the beast in this speaker. Having Xbmc installed on my mac min, which has sacd & dac output , with speaker settings. When i select LARGE, the sound comes directly from the bookshelf speakers and you can barely hear any bass from the subwoofer. The Sony products are the least i thought buying but they are worth thousand times better than the Rotel which i admire so much due to the built and style. I had Alesis monitor i MK2 and the bass is extra ordinary but musically and even with movies, the polk gives you an excellent sound with less distorted Bass, mid, and treble. If there is any better speaker than this which is built by Polk, i will surely buy it. Mine is cherry silver and made my room look beautiful as well. This is my first time owing a Polk speaker and i will recommend it to anyone with good ears not those with bad ears who have to have hear an explosion before. I had an earth quake sound i never experienced. Well i have to go but these are my setup. MAC MINI, SAMSUNG BLU RAY BOX, SONY TA900ES OR SONY EP9ES, EMOTIVA UPA-500 & ALESIS 830 DIGITAL SPECTRUM EQUALIZER. You can rate me as audio freak!!!!

Well for your money I would get the polk. Today I went to a high end audio shop and tested the above mentioned. I got to tell you for a two way they had great mid range real nice and life like. The high end was vary natural sounding and the bass was there but not everywhere and vary responsive and crisp (just the way I like I). Low treble, high treble, low bass, high bass they still sounded good (thou with all treble taking out they got a bit muddy, witch would be good for TV actually). High and low volumes still give the same sound, I did notice a lot of the bass left around listening volume, but a little bump on the bass brought it right back up. The JBL sounded exactly the same, only that the vocals and higher mids where more pronounced and "I-sword-I-was-there-ness". They didn't get mudy with all the treble taking out and incredibly crisp with the treble up (they sounded better in other words). This was all done through a yamaha RX-397 or 497 (could not remeber witch one) The polk would make decent front speakers for a good sized TV but I think they would be a bit much for anything under 27 inch or so...

Considering the L830's are twice as much I'd get the Polk if you have listened to the JBLL830 but not the Polk, about all you would lose would be a stronger mid range and life-likeness. Also the store was running them 10% and about this price so this is about as low a price that you will find for new ones.

Verified Purchase
I am the happy owner of two prototype Monitor 7 Polk Audio speakers.
I purchased 4 RTi6 speakers used as follows:

Using the two monitor 7 speakers for left and right channels, 1 RTi6 for
a center channel (These speakers sit on top of a large cabinet located
in the corner of a log house close to the ceiling), 2 more of the RTi6 speakers are used for surround left and right and the remainig RTi6 is
used for the rear channel. The surround left, right, and rear RTi6 speakers are mounted on log walls at almost ceiling hight. A powered subwoofer is located behind the corner cabinet. All is driven by an Onkyo TX-SR575. The RTi6 speakers were chosen because they are wall mountable
and narrow enough to mount between a rock hearth and a window frame.
Sounds great for home theater surround and casual music listening.

I haven't owned Polk speakers since the 80's but found a great deal on these RTI6's. To say the least, I am truely amazed by the quality of sound these speakers produce. I have been into audio for over 40 years and have owned many many brands of speakers, but these are some of the finest I have heard. As of now my Definitive Tech Studio Monitors have been replaced by these Polks and I expect the sound will improve as the break in period approaches. Great speakers.

I have been a fan of Polk speakers for more than 30 years. I really enjoy the RTi6's. They have a clean, crisp sound, and they put out a lot of bass considering they are a bookshelf speaker. Also, I got them for a very good price from Amazon. They are amazing speakers!!
