I think your idea of 4 RTIA5's and a CSIA6 (along with a sub) is a real good one.
Thanks so much for that feedback (it doesn't hurt that you're telling me what I want to hear). I'm using the PSW505, which I love, and which is as big and powerful a SW as I can reasonably accommodate--both for the sake of the room's aesthetics as well as for the quality of life of the condo unit owner below us!

What do you think about mixing the RTi's and the OWM5's? (N.B.: They do have different tweeters, but I noticed that the RTiA product brochure includes the OWM3--but not the OWM5 for some reason; can one infer from this fact that Polk considers them suitable companions?)
