I've currently got RTi10's + CSi3 for front speakers. Was wondering if you guys think it's worth stepping my center up to the CSiA6/CSi5? Would it be a noticeable step up in performance going to the larger speaker?

I mostly listen to music in Logic 7 mode via a 5.1 H/K receiver.

what kind of sub do you have and what are you setting your crossover too.

I'm running TSX330T, PSW108 & TSX250C, also still running some Onkyo rear speakers from my HTIB (HT-3400S). Could someone recommend a good receiver to pair with these? I feel like I should upgrade from the current Onkyo unit.

I think you would get more out of a new subwoofer then a larger center. you don't need the lower crossover it can offer. So the other factor would be if the volume on the center is two low and clipping.

The Rti10's have a solid bottom end. Mine are crossed at 40Hz. Since the OP primarily listens to music, I would disagree on the need for a different sub-woofer. However, a Csi5/A6 center would better match the 6" midrange drivers in the Rti10's than the 5" drivers in the Csi3.

I would agree if the goal was a lower cross over otherwise for music the center is not used and the 6 vs 5 inch driver is more a question of where you want the crossover and how loud you want the speaker to go since a 6 inch typically can play louder then a 5 in the polk center line up.
