What is the difference between R15 and R15i speakers. Also, does the model number change every year or when. What were the last bookshelf speaker model numbers? Thanks, in advance for your help to an audio newbie just trying to figure things out.

    Basically what Polk does with there models is,
    the evalute the speaker and deside what could make that model alittle better.They have in the past tweaked the crossover and modified the tweeters.They also change the cabnet slightly,with grills,colors,etc......but basicaly they remain a timbre matched to the last years model.........to a degree........
    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    Polk's jome page shows r15 as the current model. Does that mean r15i is a previous model, since it is not listed?

    Yes. You will find the RT15i under the recent product library listing.
