$109

EDIT: looks to be sold out from seller walmart, can still buy for $10 more from electronics expo (and may save you the tax as well depending on state) Back in stock from Walmart

******

Also the 65RT rectangular is a great match and also on sale lowest I've seen: $108.37 (with $3 pickup savings)

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Polk-65...r/42515081

These are very good surround/atmos speakers. These went for alot more $$ for for a long time everywhere

*****

Lastly if you go with these for an all in-wall solution, i recommend these for your 2 fronts (or even your 2 front + 2 surround +1 center, i did and they sound phenomenal for in-walls) :

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Polk-26.../148057180

( $160 each for these is not bad at all, they are never less thru retail channels, usually alot more - so although not a major deal on the 265RT - its still lower than everywhere except maybe occasionally ebay)

Rtia is the ideal match for these altho i never have an issues mixing and matching models anyway

You wont be disappointed. These 70rt have higher end components and engineering, and the enclosure and bass ports help the bass a ton in the wall/ceiling

Sound and aesthetics of the RT and RTI line never disappoint me or anyone Ive installed them for

My small bsmt media room has 7 polk rt in walls and 4 polk VT in ceiling (11.2 / 7.2.4 channel atmos/surround) and it looks and sounds amazing.

Im gonna swap the VT60 for these 70RT and make them all RT in that room, and use the VT's in my older family room 7.1 / 5.1.2 setup that has front deftech towers ans deftech center, and VT60 surrounds so all 4 in walls in there will be polk V series

Also ive installed all the RT in walls with rti12 towers up front And i forgot my gym has rti8's with older 625rt and 620rt in walls and it sounds ridiculous

i have been looking at these for a while. i currently have these ERS 610 [harmanaudio.com] but they are too big for the other places i need speakers in my house so need something with a smaller diameter. so will try these, hope they don't sound too off timber wise from my ERS 610's.

Damn OP repped . You are Hardcore fan of surround sound. I was wondering how you pull cables and drill holes all over your wall and ceiling ? DO you perform those thing by your self or you made it install by professionals who knows how to pull cables from attic or something like that? I always wanna to do this kind of setup but I don't know how to pull speaker cables in wall or ceiling by myself. Any recommendation for installer? Applause
I was looking for basic atmos setup. I should pull trigger on this ceiling speakers lol.

Well i built this house new (well not me but the builder lol) so i was able to get him to let me in since i do low voltage and networking / IT for a living. I pulled cables all over the place so i didnt have to cut anything later

The basement has been unfinished for 8 years so i finally just finished it and ran the 11 channel atmos cables after framing and before sheetrocking.

If you have an attic and / or a basement you can leverage those to get cables across the house and drop down / pull up to where you want them. Will likely need to cut a few trails of hand-holes to get it done but wont be too hard or expensive to patch those if all sheetrock...

Where are you located ? Im in the east ny/nj area but have a few contacts around the US maybe i can help you or send you some recommendations. Otherwise i can help you make sure you get a good price and the right stuff done when you get some local quotes

Thats one thing i never use/used - price usually so high + typically need an external power amp as well so i just use standard powered subs in sub cabinets/enclosures

For under $200 the 12" polk 505 and 12" klipsch sub12HG (and if u need wireless the 10" and 12" klipsch reference wireless subs all under $300) all have been great for me paired with these polk in walls and polk and deftech towers.

There Are Always better but I like these because not only do they perform well, but at their price you can usually get 2 for mid to larger rooms and i prefer 2 of these vs 1 single higher end sub for full bass that doesnt overwhelmingly sound like it comes from one part of the room, great coverage

Also all the polk in walls are lifetime warranty now i believe, ive had a few (very few) over the years that polk replaced no questions asked - didnt even make me send back the old. Best support / warranty ethics of any audio company ive ever dealt with by far, period. Maybe even out of any electronics company period. Klipsch did right too for a blown sub amp but a few more hoops and had to wait for parts that were on backorder (bash amps - booooo) but they did send it. Also offered me option to "upgrade" to newer sub at a discount lol

Polk psw155 always looked good, seems thin for less painful install and i believe they make a matching amp swa500 for it

Velodyne sc600 looks good

Definitive makes a 13" in wall ive seen and heard at shows, very good sound

Revel, paradigm, klipsch have nice options

thanks. sill considering the polk vs. DT 13 inch. DT goes lower but only has 3 year warranty. Polk and klipsch have life time warrantied. polk amp will allow 4 ohms but not DT.

So i had the matching 255c-RT center ready to go. And then realized i had the room in the wall to drop another 265RT as my center. I do not regret it one bit Smilie

So whether vertical or horizontal id go with a 3rd 265RT if u can. Theres no law that u have to use a designated center channel speaker. Truth is they are more for convenience (size), not sound. Theres no better substitute than a 3rd matching front speaker. Shoot my main surrounds are even 265rt Smilie
Only the 2 back channels and 4 atmos overheads are smaller...

If not the. the 255c RT is ur best choice.
i think it was on a semi-sale at besbuy today with the other polks. Ill check around for you too
