The Polk Audio RC80i 2-way in-ceiling loudspeaker delivers incredible stereo sound to any room in your home from speakers you can barely see, without using any floor or shelf space. The RC80i is easy to install, requiring only that you cut a hole, feed the wires through, and simply drop the speaker in. It is held in place by rotating cams that safely secure the speaker with no extra assembly or mess. Once installed, the paintable grille and flange allows this in-ceiling speaker to virtually disappear in the room The Polk RC80i uses an eight-inch dynamic-balance, mineral filled polymer-composite cone with a rubber surround that outlasts cheaper foam surrounds, as well as a one-inch metalized soft dome tweeter with a 15-degree swivel mount. This makes the tweeter aimable for direct high frequency control that ensures spacious imaging with amazing clarity. The sound is well-balanced in any listening position, even off-axis. Constructed of rust resistant hardware and durable, moisture resistant materials, the RC80i is safe for use in bathrooms, kitchens, saunas, or even under outdoor eaves. The RC80i features strong composite driver baskets that keep moving parts in rigid alignment, and a wide-dispersion design for even sound-coverage throughout large rooms. This in-ceiling loudspeaker is timbre-matched to the Polk Audio RTi Series for seamless, enveloping imaging when used in a home theater system.

For outdoor in-wall/in-ceiling speakers in a non-ideal location, these sound very nice. Relaxed and smooth midrange and good bass. At first listen they were 'just ok', kind of hard and muffled sounding, but they broke in after a day of playing at a moderately loud volume and opened up a bit.. which is typical .. but it was still a little unexpected for me.
So, give 'em a good crank and let them play for a day or 2 before you evaluate them critically.
I don't understand why you'd use a spring-clip speaker input for these. Simple spades would be better. I prefer to solder something going in a ceiling or wall... spring clips are for good if you disconnect/reconnect more often... and also makes it impossible to weather seal. Minus 1 star for the stupid spring clip terminals.
I love music and like surround sound and these things serve their purpose. These are great for most of us human beings and look better than a bunch of four foot tall black boxes in our living rooms.
Installation was relatively easy. The manual suggests sticking a cork screw in the middle of the speaker grille to remove it, so I did. Ruined that grille in the process by warping the hole I pulled on. The best way to remove grille is to slightly lift (with corkscrew) on the very edge hole and then rotate, pick another hole and lift some more (like opening a can of paint, but slowly).
I called Polk to get a new grille to replace the one I ruined expecting to pay a few bucks but they sent me one for free!
