I am newbie who has been reading up & trying out various demo speaker. I still have some very basic questions that i need help with. So, far, i have listened to mostly Floor standing speakers & Polk RTIa7's are the ones that i really like.
1. Currently, i live in a townhouse & the room size is (12 W x 20 L x 9 H). Are RTIA7's too big for this room size ? If yes, then there is a possibility that i might move to an apartment in the near future. Would these size speakers be advisable for an apartment ? I do not want to bother my neighbors or get complaints about noise. Should i try something smaller ? Something like a Pioneer SP-FS52 ? Or maybe even bookshelfs ? Please note that my motivation to get speakers is to enjoy music but will use this setup for TV also.
2. Considering the setup will be for music 70 % & 30 % TV, what is a good setup ? Are LCR's sufficient if i do not care for bass ? Or i have to get subs ? Or, if i go low end(Pioneer SP-FS52), then i will need to get the subs. I do not plan on getting the surrounds(rear speakers). Personally, i would like to lean towards an LCR but do not want to buy an incomplete system.
What are a realistic set of speakers for apartment living ?
For the speakers alone, i am thinking of 1500 as max budget. I currently do not own a receiver but will decide after finalizing the speakers. Here is a list of speakers i have listened to so far. Please note that i live in a small town & will drive up to a big town & try out more speakers after getting recommendations.
Polk RTIA7 - Loved the sound but not sure if i have space / Will have space in future
TSi300 - Sounded too bright (more treble)
Pioneer SP-FS52 - Decent for the price
Klipsch KF-28 - Sound was very good - about the same as RTIA7's
I should also mention that i started this journey, after making this post & want to thank forum memebers who have helped me thus far.
