I just purchased a set of RTi12's with the csi5 center and a pair of rti6 surround, with a polk 8"sub.
I have an Onkyo txnr808 running everything. It's a 7.2 receiver with 135 watts /channel at 8ohms ans 20-20k hz.
I have the RTi'12s biamp.
I set up Audyssey to set up speaker adjustments..
The problem I have is that I am not getting much base from the RTi12 speakers, and do I need a seperate amp or will this receiver be able to run them well? I have the RTi12's as full tower speakers on the receiver.
Any advice would be useful.
Thank you.

The receiver can certainly drive them, yes. Is it optimal? Not really.

Let Audyssey do its job. You have a subwoofer to fill in the deeper bass.

If you really think the bass is weak, disconnect the sub and re-run Audyssey to see if it improves.
