On Newegg the New Monitor 15c center channel is selling for 109 with free shipping. I have a pair of RTi4's. I've read that the CSi3 is the one that compliments the RTi4's, but I'm curious if I'm able to pair the 15c with my RTi4s. I can finance interest free if i get the 15c and the PSW505 as it will total over $250. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

The Monitor 15c is brand new so nobody has really heard it. It is made to match the Monitor series speakers.


The CSi3 is the matching center for your RTi4 so it will be a better match than the 15c.

If you've got other reasons to buy the 15c like interest free financing then do whatever is best for your budget.

Thanks for the feedback. What about the CSR? Will that match my RTi4's?

The CSR is a lower level center than the Monitor series. You don't want to go that way.

The Polk speakers go this way from good to better to best.

R series
Monitor series
RTi series (Csi for center speakers)
LSi series

Your left, right and center speakers should be from the same series.

I think you know what center you should get, you're just trying to avoid doing it. wink.gif

haha, I think you're right. Only $54 for the CSR at Frys. Oh well. The CSi3 is $99 at Frys. Too bad Newegg doesn't sell them because then I could finance it while buying the PSW505 as well.
