Polk’s RTi A9 Speakers Deliver Full-Range Performance

CIS-NC is Charlotte NC's #1 Polk Audio Speaker Dealer!

CIS-NC is Charlotte NC's Trusted Polk Audio Speaker Dealer!

Polk Audio’s RTi A9 freestanding loudspeaker is efficient, easy-to-drive, affordable and it has a small footprint.

There’s no question that over the past decade the performance characteristics of a typical in-wall or bookshelf loudspeaker have been greatly improved.

However, there is also no question that there is no replacing a full-range loudspeaker with their ability to provide high sound pressure levels (SPLs), dynamic sound reproduction capabilities and seamless, multi-octave soundstages.

Polk Audio‘s RTi A9 is an example of how manufacturers have evolved their in-room products to meet the needs of a much different consumer demographic that requires sleek industrial designs, unobtrusive room integration and reasonable price points.

Standing just under 49 inches tall the RTi A9 has a cabinet depth of 21.375 inches and a width of just shy of 9 inches.

Internally, the speaker employs three 7-inch polymer-composite woofers, two 5.25-inch polymer-composite midrange drivers and a single 1-inch silk-polymer, composite dome tweeter that operate together on 12dB crossover slopes (second-order).

The Maryland-based company also utilizes a ported cabinet design that includes its PowerPort Plus technology to help the speaker reproduce a frequency response of 18Hz to 27kHz, and it offers dual-binding post options for bi-wiring connectivity.

The RTi A9s run $1,699 per pair.

3D Upgrade Paralyzes DirecTV Boxes

Custom Installation Services - Charlotte's Source For Technology AnswersDirecTV customers woke up to gray screens on Tuesday after an automatic update crippled HD DVRs.

You didn’t need a tweet from DirecTV to learn about an an automatic update that crippled HD DVRs overnight.

By morning, frantic customers and loved ones were already doing what they could to reboot the boxes, or were calling their custom electronics (CE) pros with tales of woe.

“My wife called as I was on the way to work this morning. Kids were up and couldn’t watch Curious George,” wrote FINS on remotecentral.com.

On the same site, edizzle reported: “It is the update for 3D. all 5 of my boxes were frozen and i have already fielded dozens of calls. most were fine after one RBR (red button reset), some required two. 3D on 6/11 channel 106. get your goggles ready.”

Indeed, DirecTV subscribers are waiting in anticipation of 3D World Cup soccer action that kicks off on June 11 on ESPN 3D.

Added this from a CE pro with the user name Fiasco: “I’m going out to a house tomorrow afternoon to fix their DTV boxes (they have 7).” We’ve certainly seen our share of such widespread HD DVR installations for individual homes here at Electronic House.

DirecTV posted this message on Twitter earlier this morning:

HDDVR customers: If your HDDVR will NOT power on, unplug the unit from the wall, wait 15sec, then replug, & repeat 1x to restore service.

That seemed to do the trick, except for remotecentral reader SignatureSV, who got a “gray screen of death lol” even after four RBRs and two unplugs.
