This is a second hand 5.1 speaker package from Polk. It features:

  • Polk RT800i Floorstanding Speakers
  • Polk CS245i Centre Speaker
  • Polk FX300 Dipole / Bipole Speakers
  • Polk PSW450 12" Subwoofer

That's a pair of medium floorstanding speakers, a matched centre, a pair of Bipole / Dipole speakers, and a subwoofer. The rear speakers have a switch, so you decide how you're going to use them - put them directly left and right of your seating position, and flip them to 'Dipole' mode. Or, put them behind you and switch them to 'Bipole' for a more diffuse sound field.

 

The speakers are all a few years old now, and appear to be going, though they are showing their age - the vinyl wrap, especially around the front plate, has started to lift. There are also no bridging clips on the floorstanding speakers. That's okay, we've got you covered - included for cabling is:

  • 2.5m pair of Straight Wire Quartet Speaker Cable with 2 banana plugs on the amp end and 4 banana plugs at the speaker end
  • A 2m length of Straight Wire Quartet Speaker Cable for the centre (2 banana plugs on each end)
  • A 5m subwoofer cable (RCA plugs on both ends)

Just add some speaker cable for the rear speakers, and you've got yourself a very cost effective 5.1 setup. (Scroll to the bottom for pics!)
