I'm not trying to be sarcastic here but, if the midbass is sticky, won't the dust particles / cat fur / dog fur / human hair (etc), be "stuck" to the surface in a way that a brush won't be able to...

I believe that the OP is asking about the tacky / sticky surface of the midbass driver. Does it attract dust or dirt? Can it be cleaned?

Older Polk Audio speakers (vintage) had a tacky surface and...

Have you heard / owned the RC-10? Is there a large difference in sound quality when compared to the RC-LCR with their separate midrange drivers vs the 2-way RC-10?

When I opened the box for the RC-10, the grills were not attached; they were in a separate box. Personally, I took that as a sign / hint that they should be used without the grills. They're very...

For surrounds, timbre matching isn't as important as the front soundstage. If you stay in the Polk family, I'd think that you'd be fine.

With all the bass those dual subs are putting out, you can probably get away with the smaller bookshelf speakers to save yourself a little $.

Both of them are very good but it is almost impossible for me to tell you which one you will prefer. It's very subjective and you may prefer one sound over another.
