Polk Audio 265RT (in-wall)
Polk Audio 255C-RT (in-wall center speaker)
Polk Audio RC80i (in-ceiling)
Considering using the 265RT's for L & R fronts, 255C-RT for center and RC80i's for rears in basement media room. All would be used along with a Polk DSW Pro 550wi sub.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Comments?
Thanks in advance!
I do have the RC80i at my room and I'm using them as surround speakers in combination with RTi A9's and CSi A6 and they are able to keep up with these bad boys. So, I think you will be fine with them as surrounds as well. However, if you want to have a perfect timbre matched system, I would recommend you to check/consider this speaker as surround: 80F/X-RT (part of the same family).
On the 265 and 255C, they are actually timbre match for the RTi family and therefore, I think they will work pretty well for you (assuming that you have limited space and your only option is to use in-wall speakers). I was looking at the 265 before and I'm still thinking on adding a pair of them at my room as presence speakers.
So, if you pull the trigger on these, please report back.
