Regardless of this, do you think the rti6 mounted on the walls would be any sort of improvement in sound quality? I would pair them with the csi3 or csi5 for center channel. This is primarily for home theater use and I am using the big f12 Subwoofer. The room is 12x21 feet with 7 foot ceilings.
Thoughts would be much appreciated! Thanks!
I understand that you would like to get the speakers off of the floor, but I urge you to consider mounting wood shelves on the wall with support brackets and placing the speakers on the shelves.
I find that actually attaching speakers to the wall results in problems with the walls resonating/buzzing at some frequencies.
Placing rubber matting under the speakers on the shelf provides some isolation from the wall.
The stuff they use in RVs to keep stuff from sliding around in cabinets is perfect for this, and you can get a roll of it for $10 or so from any RV parts dealer. It can be cut with scissors to fit the bottom of each speaker.
The Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 is the speaker I would recommend. Music Direct has them and a matching center speaker also.
IMO they are much better-sounding than either the RTi6 or the Pioneers, and you can get them for $350/pair.
Another advantage of shelves is that you can change speakers easily if you ever want to.
