I would certainly recommend the Polks, if those 3 are your only choices in your area.
All the reviews on those Energy speakers lead me to question whether they are very good to listen too; a lot of hemming and hawing and cautions. They won't come out and just say they suck, but it's there if you read between the lines (bright....harsh...use only with "warm" electronics...etc.)
On the other hand, the PSB Image T6 speakers are some of the best speakers I have ever heard for under $2000 (with the possible exception of the KEF Q900). I very much doubt if the RTi A9 measures up to them.
The Image T6 speakers cost from $1000 to $1300 per pair, and I would assume the Polks cost about the same.
