I’m trying to decide between an RTI A7 or A9. I live in a rural area so I can't audition either of them. My current amp (Outlaw 5000) doesn't have enough power to do the A9's justice, so I'll need a new amp (I'm thinking of two Outlaw monoblocks at 200wpc). I currently have RTI A5's as my front speakers, and I'm disappointed with them (muddy midrange).
Any thoughts on the 7’s versus the 9’s? Is 200 WPC enough to drive the 9’s? The wife is concerned that the 9’s are too big for our living space (they are), but I’m concerned that there’s not enough difference between the 5’s and the 7’s, so I’m tempted by the A9’s.
