I run Rti6's in the family room with Rti4 surrounds and a Csi3 for TV and light music. The Rti6's run full range, while the Rti4's and Csi3 cross over to a 8" Klipsch SW-350 sub in the corner... this configuration determined after lots of experimentation and it all works very well now for what we use it for... even some streaming and DVD's (the big A9 system is for BD's and critical music listening). The Csi3 fits under the TV nicely, while the Csi5 is just too bulky there.
FWIW I tried the Lsi9's for HT, and while they were better for music than the A9's, I was somewhat disappointed in their HT performance, and they were very disappointing for TV. So it's A9's for movies, Rti6's for TV and Lsi9's for music in the bedroom. Also recently mothballed the DSW660 and replaced it with a Klipsch SW-450, being so impressed with its little brother the SW-350 in the family room after several years of use there. BTW I run the Rti6's full range without xing over to the sub because the sub tended to be too boomy on commercials and newscasts.
