Polk Audio 80F/X-RT Owners Manual

Practically Invisible In-Ceiling Surround Effects

Hiding your surround speakers in your ceiling and painting them to match your decor enhances the illusion of surround-sound. The 80F/X-RT includes custom audio controls to optimize any installation position (above or behind your seating area) for more realistic effects.

Vanishing 80F/X-RT Features:

Vanishing® Series built-in speakers feature our exclusive wafer-thin Sheer-Grille™, a magnetically-secured grille that protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. Sheer-Grilles have nearly transparent, ultra-small perfs, and are acoustically inert, for dynamic, unimpeded sound and more uniform coverage, even in larger rooms.

Painted to match your décor, Vanishing Series built-in speakers are virtually indistinguishable from their surroundings.

Vanishing Series RT speakers are timbre-matched to Polk RTi speakers to insure utterly seamless blending from speaker to speaker in systems that combine traditional and built-in speakers.

Dual bandpass bass ports are highly efficient in small enclosures, and smoothly funnels the angled woofer’s low frequencies down around the driver array, eliminating “chuffing,” so your small, practically invisible in-ceiling speakers achieve superior full-range blending and broad coverage with surprisingly deep bass.

Easy one-cut, drop-in installation puts built-in audio within reach, with Perfect Fit templates, a precision flange, and (available) pre-construction brackets; achieve secure, vibration-free efficiency with a simple turn of the patented Rotating Cam system.

All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

    Husbands birthday

    - 3/9/2014

    Great speakers for our home theater. I bought these for my husbands birthday and he is amazed at the surround sound effects we are getting from them.

    Man Cave

    - 12/26/2011

    When designing my basement I looked and listened to so many different speakers, and contemplated built in vs free standing. I looked at Def Techs as well as KEF and B&W. I decided to go for built ins, and hesitated on the polks since there were no reviews. But I have loved Polks so ran with the idea. I was determined to make them sound as good as I could. To do this I wanted to ensure sound was as good as any free standing speakers. So while framing the basement I created sealed boxes about 3 cubic feet each for the speakers (I am an enginerd and calculated about how much air flow is needed for the throw of the speakers, this is how speaker boxes are designed). I filled them with rock wool for sound dampening but allow for air expansion, also caulked the paremeter to help with vibrations. The sound from the 7.1 system is awesome. Friends have told me it sounds better than movie theater sound. The velodyn optimum 10 vibrates the whole basement, and can be felt on the second story of our house! We have not painted the speakers yet, we kind of like the white contrast. I installed 3 RT 265 for front left, right and center channels and two sets of the 80 F/X RT for the sides and rears. The F/X speakers make sound so real We constantly think someone is upsairs, or the dogs are barking, or the doorbell is chimming (ironically annoying haha). Rain sounds awesomely real. just sick! Safe and Sound helped me pick the best speakers within my budget and holy cow it is amazing! Mike THANKS
