Product Information

Big Tower Sound, Space-Saving Design

The RTiA5 is the most compact tower speaker in the RTiA Series. With two 6 1/2" Dynamic Balance mid/woofer drivers, a 1" Dynamic Balance dome tweeter, and PowerPort Plus, it packs a punch and delivers the mind-bending thrills of Inception as well as the intoxicating groove of Manu Chao.


  • The proprietary curved, 6-layer DAHLI enclosure design creates the optimal shear damping for a more rigid, acoustically inert enclosure and minimal cabinet resonances.
  • The two 6 1/2" mid/woofer drivers are housed in their own tuned internal enclosures for increased clarity and life-like detail.
  • Klippel motor optimization uses laser measurement technology to ensure a smooth excursion path at either end of the volume spectrum for uniform performance at both low and high volumes.
  • Polk's proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows Polk's engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.
  • Durable, computer-modeled, injection-molded butyl rubber surrounds suppress unwanted cone resonances for a life-time of reliable sound.
  • The RTiA Cascade Tapered Crossover eliminates the comb filtering and beaming, common to multi-driver speakers, which degrades the quality of the audio and collapses the soundstage.
  • Beautiful curved furniture-grade hardwood veneer cabinet finishes, with sleek trim accents in black or cherry.
  • Computer-modeled anti-diffraction grilles enhance the good looks while minimizing sonic interference.
  • PowerPort Plus bass venting is Polk's patented design for smoothly transitioning the air flow from the port into your listening area, eliminating turbulence and distortion, for bigger, more musical, deep bass impact.
  • Polk's patented Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC) port technology tunes out the internal cabinet resonances resulting in natural uncolored midrange reproduction.
  • All Polk loudspeakers are timbre-matched within their series, designed with the same components throughout, to achieve seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems.
  • Dual gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts, for the most secure connection options.
  • Dual binding posts allow bi-amp or bi-wire connections, for the ultimate in customized high performance audio.



  • Dimensions (W x H x D): 8.44" x 40.25" x 15.75"
  • Weight: 40 lbs.
  • Mid-high array driver complement: (2) 6.5" diameter midrange, (1) 1" diameter tweeter
  • Total frequency response: 30Hz - 27kHz
  • Sensitivity (1 watt @ 1 meter): 90dB
  • Lower and upper -3dB limits: 40Hz - 26kHz
  • Recommended amplifier power per channel: 20 watts - 250 watts

Terrific Value
I got these for my bedroom- I have a multi-room setup. I had to get a replacement for 1 as the tweeter wasn't working, but Crutchfield took care of it right away. I wanted the i7's but they were too big/deep for the room. I'm very happy with the i5's, they are really nice looking (love the cherry) and have good build quality. The highs were a little etchy at first but are calming down as they get broken in. I think the bass response is quite good, but yes, as others have said you might want a sub for movies. For my application, the bass is more than adequate. They are a terrific value, especially considering the nice veneer cabinets. I recommend them highly especially for the price..
