I'm continuing my journey of surround sound and hope to be getting my center channel soon. I thought I was set on the CSi3 since this center speaker matches the drivers of my RTi4's. However, I've looked back on some forums and people say the CSi5 blows the CSi3 outta the water. They mention that "The center channel is the most important...I regretted not buying the CSi5 right away." "If you can, get the CSi5. It is far more crisp, etc, etc."
I know the CSi5 doesn't match the driver of my RTi4's, but is the consensus that the CSi3 is underpowered and underperformed by the CSi5? And if so, would you recommend I pair my RTi4's with a CSi5 to future proof?
Any thoughts would be helpful! Thanks!
