I'm running 703s as surrounds and they are awesome. Never liked dipole/bipole speakers for surrounds, though.

The rear surrounds do not get as much action as the side surrounds and therefore are not as critical. IMHO, unless money is no object or your OCD rules the day, I would not utilize LSiM703's for RS duty just to match the side-surround speakers. There are other, much more affordable options (e.g., OWM5, TL3, RTiA3, et alia). And, as has been already noted, the wide dispersion of the LSiM702/FX is not the best option in this speaker position.

I am not minimizing the value of RS speakers; I greatly value what mine add to the overall surround-sound effect. In fact, I experimented with configuring my Atmos 7.1.4 setup with FW in place of the RS and found that I could not give up the latter just for the sake of a broader front sound stage. Of course, YMMV. And, in the best of all possible worlds, I still get to hear my FW in addition to the RS when playing back in DTS Neo:X 11.1.

according to Cruchfield The Polk Monitor line was discontinued in 2008 the TSI line took over at that point. Now the TSX line is new and will discontinue TSI, they just made so many they are all still for sale most on sale

I just ordered the 702s for surrounds, but for the rears I use LSi7s. 702s are not necessary for rear IMHO

For rears you can even use Polk Audio TL3s which are timbre match with LSi/LSiM series. I have a pair that I use as surrounds in my 5.1 bedroom system with B&W 685 S2s + HTM62 S2 Center and they work fantastic.

Yes and the point we are trying to make is don't buy them save up for the rti line. They are much better in clarity and not much more then those monitor ts* if you buy a referb from polk ebay.

This! There are only 2 lines of Polk speakers I would buy...RTi and LSi, the other stuff is not on the same level. RTi is really good for the money especially refurbs from Polk direct.

Just thought I would share. These babies are getting ready to hatch and join their parents, a pair of RTi A9s. Going to start installing this weekend. Unfortunately, I won't be able to finish for a few weeks, when the carpet in the room gets installed. It's going to be a long few weeks.

Opinions on the TSi100s or TSX220Bs for 150/160$ a pair? Rave reviews on Amazon.

Weighing that vs the KEF Q100s for 300$, paired with a Yamaha RS202 entry level Bluetooth receiver.
Small high ceiling apartment/loft.

Any reviews or thoughts on the these polks welcome...

Very Nice! I have the CSiA6 and RTiA3's and they are awesome, you will love them. I have an older pair of Polk dipoles for my side surrounds but may upgrade them at some point. Let me know how you like the FXiA6.

Cheers!

Don't waste your money. Maybe rave reviews but mediocre performance. Better than nothing at best. I literally gave away pairs of Tsi100's and 200's still in their boxes when we moved recently.

I don't know anything about KEF. Try them and see. As for the low end Polks, their higher end models are far superior.

When does Polk Audio start their friends and families sale? I've been saving up, and I'm thinking of moving from my Chane speakers to the LSiM703 for front left and LSiM706c.

Gus, I love you like a brother, but I think thats the wrong thing for specifically you to do.

If you plan to go this route, start building some MASSIVELY heavy stands NOW.

I could forsee kids/dogs running into them and knocking them over. There is no real "good" way to mount them to the wall, so you need some STOUT stands..... And even then, there is no good way to keep them from falling off those since you cant couple them to the stands.....

I am sure you could fab some, but again, I think you want floostanders for your L/R to make life easier for now...

I do want the floor standers, but I can't afford them plus the LSiM center. I could get them, but I don't think the wife will be too happy about that unless I can sell my Chane speakers. I think she might still get upset lol.

I was going to build some heavy duty shelves for them and mount them on the wall .

I'll be selling my LSiM setup is a few months. I'm planing around tax refund season. It could be sooner if I sell an overseas property, though. Of course my plan is to sell the whole system that includes a pair of LSiM 705s, a 706C and a pair of LSiM 703s.

How much? I might be interested, but usually during Family and Friends sale Polk Audio has the 50% off, which is hard to beat.

Sent you a PM. If I recall the last family and friend promotion didn't include LSiM series. I think Polk said that LSiM and RTiA would be out of 50% family and friends promotions after the 2013 mess.

I'm definitely waiting for the F&F sale. A lot of people buy them and later resale them to get $$, which sucks.

BTW, I don't know if you guys noticed but looks like Polk Audio is pulling the LSiM series out of the shelfs. It's not in stock anymore at Polk Audio, some models like the LSiM 704C, 703 and 705 only available scratch and dent at Crutchfield or show low stock.

I keep getting asked for advice...I'm not into gear anymore...have vintage SDAs front and back...more than enough...big and fugly, but sound great...IMO, the best thing Polk ever manufactured.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

The RTi line was discontinued for years and still available on the Polk Ebay store. Same for the LSi series. Let's hope the same happens for the LSiM line. I love my RTiA speakers, but I wouldn't mind an upgrade haha. I think I should upgrade my old 1080p LCD TV first though.

The last family and friends sale was in the spring and did include LSIMs. I got my 702s and center during that sale.

Agreed, I have some black SDA-2's that I keep thinking of selling, but haven't been able to bring myself to do it.

How long has the LSiM line been out? When my 703s were backordered for several weeks earlier this year during the last F&F sale, I called Polk and whoever I spoke to said they were awaiting a shipment of 400+ 703s. I don't they have ever been back in stock on Polk's website, but I did eventually get my speakers, which were ordered via Adoroma. It looks like pretty much every LSiM speaker is either out of stock, or soon will be, on Polk's site.

Hello fellow Polk owners. I am a long time owner of Polk RTi's and recently renovated my basement for a home theater. I have everything set up properly for a 7.2.4 but there's something I wanted your opinion on.
I have searched this here and other forums but haven't received a definitive answer. And its about FXi surrounds and Polk's recommendation on left and right speaker surrounds. Please take a look at the two pictures attached.
On the second picture you will notice the surrounds laid out as Polk has recommended. You'll notice the surround woofer points away from the listener. I am okay with the current setup, but was wondering if it would sound differently or better if I switched the layout, as in the surround woofer pointing towards the listener. What puzzles me is, while Polk recommends the woofer outwards, some other speaker manufacturers for similar layout surround recommends woofer pointing towards the listener.

So, what would you personally recommend? Thanks in advance.

Oh the speakers are as follows:
RTiA9 on the fronts
CSiA6 at the center
FXiA6 on the four surrounds
MC60 on four ceiling speakers
SVS PB1000 on the woofer
