Onkyo Amplified Polk 65-RT Vanishing Series 5.1 Pack

Invisibly loud. This package of Polk in-wall and in-ceiling speakers is an ideal solution for small to mid-sized home theatres or media rooms. This system is visually discreet, but sonically bold, and is perfect for when you need a low-key system but are not prepared to compromise on the quality of sound. These speakers can be installed next to a projector or televisions or behind acoustically transparent projector screens. The in-wall speakers from Polk's Vanishing V Series paired with the Signature Series subwoofer creates a system that is low-key but in no way a sacrifice to performance.

Powering this speaker system is the Onkyo TX-NR696 7.2-channel surround sound receiver. This powerful amp offers a huge number of ways to connect and can handle anything you throw at it. Read on to discover how this package can sound so large, but appear so modest.

What's Included:

- 1x Onkyo TX-NR696 Receiver
- 2x Polk 65-RT Surround In-Wall Speakers
- 1x Polk 255c-RT Centre In-Wall Speaker
- 2x Polk 70-RT Ceiling Speakers
- 1x Polk HTS10 Subwoofer


Onkyo TX-NR696 Receiver

A harmonious mix of tech and tradition, the TX-NR696 adapts to entertainment life and finds the emotion in every sound source, from 3D film-scores to vinyl records.

Key Features
- THX® Certified Select™ cinema-reference sound
- Supports 5.1 channel setup or up to 7.2/5.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® playback
- 175 W per channel
- Next-Generation Network Audio
- Works with Sonos, Chromecast built-in, AirPlay 2, DTS Play-Fi®, FlareConnect™, Spotify®, Amazon Music, TIDAL, Deezer, TuneIn

AccuEQ creates a harmonious sound-field in your room. It detects speaker presence, size, impedance, and distance from a measurement position, and sets sound-pressure levels. It then selects the subwoofer crossover and EQ’s all speakers, including the sub.



Polk 65-RT In-Wall Front Speakers

Polk's patented PowerPort bass venting system greatly enhances the smooth low-end response in this easy-to-place, single-woofer in-wall speaker. These versatile speakers shine when used as the left and right front channel speakers in a system such as this.

Key Features
- 2-way design
- High-performance audio with a design built for a flush fit with your wall
- Tweeters set in a 15° swivel housing provide direct high-frequency control
- Innovative Polk Audio technology in a discrete, easy-to-install package
- PowerPort for venting bass
- 6.5" poly cone bass/midrange drivers with rubber surrounds
- 1" dynamic balance silk dome tweeter

Reflective surfaces in rooms can make sound brighter and cause image distortion. Engaging the Vanishing reflective room compensation feature, which is present on all the speakers in this package, lowers the tweeter level to compensate for reflective surfaces. Vanishing reflective room compensation is a custom audio control that cuts the level only in the 4-5kHz range, exactly where reflectivity destroys sound quality.

If your loudspeakers need to be installed closer than 2 feet from side walls, the proximity of the surface can result in a response bump between 50 and 200Hz. This can create a ‘boomy' sound. The Vanishing wall distance toggle switch is a custom audio control that adjusts the crossover to flatten response and tune out boominess, without sacrificing deep bass response.

For superior dynamics in practically invisible multi-zone music systems, virtually-flush mounting with a minimal-flange design means these speakers never attract attention by their looks, only by their performance.


 Polk 255c-RT In-Wall Centre Speaker

The Vanishing Series 255c-RT is the centrepiece of a world-class stealth home theatre. Paintable to match any décor, this in-wall centre channel speaker blends in perfectly with its surroundings. Anchoring all the action without attracting attention, the 255c-RT ensures all you see is screen, and all you hear is dynamic, crystal clear sound.

Key Features
- 2-way design
- High-performance audio with a design built for a flush fit with your wall
- Tweeters set in a 15° swivel housing provide direct high-frequency control
- Innovative Polk Audio technology in a discrete, easy-to-install package
- Twin 5.25" poly cone bass/midrange drivers with rubber surrounds
- 1" dynamic balance silk dome tweeter
- Plenty of volume with 90dB sensitivity at 1m

This centre channel features the same tweeter as seen in the front channel speakers. This gives your front 3 speakers, the most demanding aspect of your home theatre, a consistent and balanced sound.

For centre stage audio that brings your movies, shows, and games to life, look no further than this powerful centre channel.



Polk 70-RT In-Wall Surround Speakers

The Vanishing® Series 70-RT features a unique 3-way driver array that produces big, full-range performance from a deceptively small in-ceiling speaker. The 70-RTs grille can be painted to match your décor, and will blend in perfectly with their surroundings.

Key Features
- 3-way design
- 'Hidden' 7" Dynamic Balance bass driver
- Dynamic, full-range performance from an extra deep well design
- Innovative Polk Audio technology in a discrete, easy-to-install package

Patented Polk Audio technology and construction techniques produce powerful, deep bass performance, especially when you need it most.

Patented bass venting design smoothly transitions air flow, eliminating turbulence and distortion, for deeper, more efficient bass impact. Smooth funnelling for low frequencies around the driver array eliminates "chuffing" for full-range blending, broad coverage and deep bass.

The 70-RT are ideal for use with Polk Audio RTi speakers for seamless blending between traditional and built-in speaker systems.




Polk HTS 10 Subwoofer

The Polk HTS 10 subwoofer enhances home theatre and music listening with powerful deep bass. It features a long-throw Dynamic Balance 10” driver, patented Power Port technology and a state-of-the-art Class D amplifier. Easily accessible controls for volume, low pass filter, and phase correction. Connect via LFE (unfiltered/low pass disabled) or stereo line-level RCA inputs.

Curved edges offer a sensual yet powerful look that fits with any home decor - available in a stunning black washed walnut or classic brown walnut finish.

- Deep Bass for Home Theatre and Music
- Front-firing long-throw 10” Polypropylene Dynamic Balance and Klippel optimised driver
- Floor-firing patented Power Port Technology for deeper bass response and reduced port noise
- Complete Control - built-in controls for variable volume, low pass filter and phase (0/180°) for optimum bass levels.
- Universal compatibility from stereo RCA and LFE inputs



Add another subwoofer! [Optional]

Add a second Polk subwoofer for an even deeper and more immersive bass experience in your home entertainment system. Running dual subwoofers provides you with more placement options and performs better in larger rooms.




Make it a 7.1 or Dolby Atmos pack with additional speakers! [Optional]

Not content with a 5.1 setup? Add an additional pair of 70-RT in-wall or matching 65-RT in-wall speakers to make it a 7.1 or Dolby Atmos (5.1.2) pack! With compatible films, this option expands the surround experience with side/rear or specialised height channels as well as rear channels making your favourite films even more immersive.
