Polk Audio RC60i High Performance In-Ceiling Speakers : Excellent, very pleased indeed

They have such great reviews from everyone else but there appears to be. Still unsure about these, they have such great reviews from everyone else but there appears to be a lack of clarity and muddled sound. I thought the problem with ceiling speakers would be lack of bass, but that in itself doesn’t seem to be a problem. The only suggestion i have been given is to put a box or similar over the top.

Good alternative to floor standers. Just hooked them up, very impressed with the sound, bass is adequate and mid / top end very clean and clear, i use ed sheeran, thinking out loud for my reference piece and the speakers handled the acoustic intro cleanly and clearly, bass lines well defined and the shout out quite startling. Electrician commented that they were good quality units and very easy to install.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • The RC60i’s round profile looks just like a lighting fixture so it will blend into your ceiling without calling attention to itself.
  • But they sound sooooo much better than your typical in-ceiling speakers giving them an unrivalled sound quality at a great price.
  • Mid/Woofer: 1 – 6-1/2 Diameter (16.51cm)”
  • Tweeter: 1 – 3/4 Diameter (1.91cm)”
  • Mounting Depth: 2-3/8 (6.03cm)”

Bought 2 sets of these speakers to fit into the ceiling of my lounge. Very ‘wife friendly’ and look great. Rigged up to a yamaha dsp 5. 1 surround sound system and a 3m projector. Watching films now is awesome. Make a cut into the ceiling (i had professionally done and skimmed) then put into the hole and turn 3 pins to hold in place. Can be used with or without the white covers. Definately looks better with white grills as they become part of the surroundings.

An excellent choice for a kitchen ceiling speaker. These are excellent speakers in every way. Easy to fit with useful templates to assist accurate cutting and simple method of securing them in place. The final result superb sound from such a small size of speaker and an elegant appearance.

Excellent, very pleased indeed. Bought 2 sets of these and tested them whilst not in the ceiling as i was waiting for the ceiling to be done and they sounded okay. Now the ceiling is done, i am very surprised how good they sound. They are very limited bass wise, but that is to be expected which is why i also bought a sub woofer. So with these speakers and my sub, i have a very nice sound in my kitchen diner now, so very pleased indeedinstallation was very easy, and they look great and all my mates that have been round think they both look and sound excellent.

Polk Audio RC60i High Performance In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) : Great quality and service, worth the price. . Very impressed with this quality product which was well packaged and delivered efficiently. I have four hooked up to a sonos connect:amp in the ceiling of our family room and the sound all around the l-shaped room is great quality and well balanced.

Great speakers but over priced. These look and sound great but they are twice the price as on amazon. Com – i bought 3 more sets in the us.

Great installation speakers. Firstly the reality is that fitting speakers into a ceiling of a kitchen is clearly not an audiophile act and i don’t expect that level of musical quality. With that caveat in mind what i can say is that these are great for the application i used them for. Sound quality is excellent and far louder than i’ll use in normal day to day usage. They are discrete and almost flush which was a pre-requisit given that my kitchen is fairly low in height. The build quality is high and they have a nice ‘weightiness’ about them that suggests this. Of course polk is a well known good quality brand and i expected nothing less. I use these with a middling teac multizone amp and really can’t complain given the price and installation.

My friend recommended the rc80’s but being cheap i got these instead. I have two in my kitchen and they are a great touch. Can’t turn volume up more than 50% as they are so loud.

Excellent and no need for my old subwoofer. Bought these to fit in the celling replace a couple of really good goodmans shelf speakers when we we refurbished our kitchen. I ran the shelf speakers with a half decent subwoofer, off a pretty good lepai 2. I was wondering where to put the subwoofer in the new kitchen, but once i wired these polks up, the sound was wonderful – warm, rounded, crisp and space filling – all without the sub. In retrospect, i could have done with my ceiling being a little higher and/or the speakers a little closer together – but altogether very happy.

    Very good – so i bought another pair for the bathroom. I bought these for the kitchen and had them professionally installed. Some months later i bought a 2nd pair for the bathroom and did a diy job. Very easy to install in a plasterboard ceiling (drill around the supplied templates and finish with a small platerboard saw). Remove grill, insert in ceiling and drive 4 screws home on the lugs to locate in ceiling. Performance is very good in the kitchen and bathroom – although probably a bit too big for the bathroom. At the price probably the best you can get.
