Product Details

Polk Audio Round 8" Two-Way In-Wall/Ceiling Loudspeakers, Model RC80I

RCi Series In-Wall Speakers deliver incredible Polk sound to every room in your home without using anyfloor or shelf space! Now you have new options for more flexibility and performance from Polk Audio.

Out of the box and into the wall (or ceiling), that’s how easy it is to install new Polk Audio RCi Series In-Wall Loudspeakers like the RC80i. Dynamic Balance components and Aimable Tweeters ensure spacious imaging with amazing clarity and well-balanced sound in any listening position, not just a small "sweet spot." Paint them to match your décor and they practically disappear, leaving you with nothing but high performance sound! Installation is easy as 1-2-3: cut one hole, feed the wires, and simply drop the speaker in. Rotating Cams secure the speaker safely with no extra assembly or mess.


  • Round shape and flush design allows the RC80i to mimic the look of a recessed lighing fixture -- the ultimate in stealth sound!
  • Aimable tweeters for direct high frequency control; excellent imaging even for off-axis listening positions... (Tweeter shown is on the RC55i, but you get the idea.)
  • Durable, moisture resistant materials for safe use in bathrooms, kitchens, even under outdoor eaves.
  • Wide dispersion design for even sound-coverage throughout even large rooms.
  • Rotating Cam Mounting System: the fastest and easiest installation system ever:
  • Rubber driver-surround outlasts cheap foam surrounds (see "Competitors, inferior") for years of trouble-free performance.
  • Infinite Baffle Tuning uses the virtual enclosure of in-wall space for superior bass response.
  • Paintable grille and flange allows Polk in-wall speakers to virtually disappear in your room.
  • Pre-Construction Brackets available for new construction or major renovation. Use PB TC/LC 80 (Polk Part # AW0181-A).
  • Timbre-matched to the whole Polk Audio Monitor Series of high performance loudspeakers.
