the TSx550T. though it seems to me that the TSx550 would actually be more comparable to the RTiA5.

ohher models directly comparable to the 70 would be
TSi500
Monitor 75T

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

Any idea on how the 550T compares to the Klipsch RF-82 II for music?

My local Frys, has both and a few others side by side to demo, granted the room was like an echo chamber but I have to say a side from the horn making things a bit tighter and crisper, they both performed very well to the point where I couldnt justify the $200 difference (each) in price so I went with the Polks smile.gif

Thank you.

There is a Fry’s within 30-45 minutes from me. I’ll have to go check them out. I’ve had Klipsch RB-51 II bookshelves as fronts for the last couple of years, but I’ve recently gotten more into music than movies. I’d like to upgrade to towers, and the Polks look nice. I just don’t want to buy a whole new set of speakers if the Klipsch RF-82 fares well against the Polks, then that would be a cheaper option for me.

Did anyone notice the size of the actual speaker on the Polk TSX?

 

I have a pair of Polk TSX 110B bookshelfs and a Polk TSX 150C center, and I noticed that the diameter of the mid/woofer speakers is not 5-1/4" as stated by Polk, but in fact closer 4.5".  I find this odd, because the tweeter diameter correctly measures at 1" as advertised.  Perhaps I'm measuring it wrong, and I should be taking into account the size of the metal speaker basket frame?

 

Regardless, I'm happy with the sound I get out of the TSX speakers, I was just curious as to why the speaker measurements were off.  Is there a standard way to measure speakers or a set standard that manufacturer's use when building them?
