The LCi-RTS100 is a high end custom install surround channel loudspeaker from Polk Audio. The LCi-RTS100 features an array of Polk exclusive technology which accompanies all of Polk Audio's LC series speaker units. The LCi-RTS100 is equipped with dynamic polypropylene cones which are designed with a rigid Composite Driver Basket body frame. The LCi-RTS100 is in a higher price range of course because of the integrated audio drivers which provide better performance than other units in the Polk Audio LC series; instead of one single driver the LCi-RTS100 includes two 5-1/4" diameter mid-range drivers as well as a 1" tweeter. The dual driver configuration allows this speaker unit a wider overall frequency response of 50Hz-20kHz and a 92dB efficiency rate.
The LCi-RTS100 features high performance drivers which are positioned in their frame at a 15 degree offset along with two offset tweeters; this allows the unit as Polk claims "to disperse uniform sound over a wide area". Full support for up to 200W per channel allow this speaker a more universal support range for various analog systems. An integrated solid/diffuse switch along with a wall distance toggle switch can be used in comparison to tailor the tweeters into two different sound configurations allowing for greater control of sound quality. The LCi-RTS100 is equipped with moisture and rust resistant body hardware making installation in bathrooms, saunas, kitchens, and even outdoor under covered patio installations safe.
The LCi-RTS100 speaker unit is THX Ultra 2 certified; which means that THX has nominated this speaker unit for both performance and dynamic range quality. Polk openly claims that this speaker is the "very first in-ceiling speaker to earn the nomination".
