Sounds Like Their Big Brother

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Big sound, Very Affordable, Quality Construction

Cons:None

After owning a pair of RT7 for a couple of years, I thought I would try one of the RT7's smaller brothers to use in my bedroom. In the tradition of Polk speakers, I have been very pleased with the RT3. These very affordable speakers would feel right at home as satellite speakers with a sub, or, as in my case, just for casual listening.

The sound is very surprising. It is full and warm, with a surprising amount of bass. Don't get me wrong - I am not talking thunder boomers - but enough bass to give a nice balanced sound. They even have the Dynamic Balance drivers - just like the bigger models. The first time I hooked these up, I compared them to the RT7. At lower volume levels, there is almost no difference in the sound.

As with other Polk products, the quality is superb. The enclosures are nice and heavy, with a nice wood grain feel. The 5-way posts are excellent - no cheesy, spring-loaded connection.

I cannot find any fault with these speakers.
