RTE series

Just received some RTE35's in the mail sat and was wondering why they say RTE series on the grille plaque? My RT55's don't say anything like that. I don't see any obvious differences except the 35's are light (birch?) and the 55's are black.

    Bought from an individual in Pa (Audiogon listing). Any seconds on the European version theory?

    A month or two ago there was a set of RTE55's for sale and when I called Polk about it, they indicated that the E was for Export, in the case of the speaker I called them about, it went to Canada. Specs are all the same as the standard RT line, just with a special little letter there for ya.

    Enjoy!!!

    Your probably OK on those speakers. A co worker of mine has 2 pair of RTE's . They are out there just enjoy them. Also that light birch finish was only available on the RTE's. It's a little lighter then the maple that was available with the RTi's.

    DUDE,
    I wanted a pair of RTE series back then,they where all woodgrain like the rti's are now.I liked the way they looked so much better then the regular rt's.

    They made the entire rt series in E as well then It was before the rtxxxi's came out, and when the rt's where out.I don't remember a rte300p though.....I like they skiped that model.
