I was planning on buying a place and since I wanted to have a system in my room, I began looking at something. I originally thought of getting a Klipsch Icon WF system so started saving for it. Well, I also scrounged around CL for any good deal for speakers around my area. I did manage for find a great system, though the left and right speakers have some damage and one has the base breaking apart. I only noticed this after listening and decided to go with them due to the low price and not hearing a difference between the damaged and undamaged speakers.

Polk Rti-A7 mains
Polk CSi-A6 center
Polk Rti-A3 surrounds
Polk DSW Pro 550 sub
All for a little over $1k if I remember correctly.
I sold the A3's, and stored the sub for later use.
Another CL find was a pair of Polk FXi-A4 di-poles for about $150 and a pair of Polk Rti4 speakers (back surround) for about $140.
Running dual BIC/Acoustech PL-200 subs. One new (From dealer), one lightly used (off CL). Total about $450 for both.
Upgraded the caps and resistors on the crossovers in the A7 towers and A6 center (Clarity Caps and Mills resistors) about $300 or so. Very, very nice improvement.
This of course does not include the AVR and dedicated amp or the other sets of speakers I bought before settling on the "modded" Rti-A line of Polks.
