Yes, as the ending neared, it was looking like they were going to wrap everything up neatly, to the point where the show could either end or continue (much the way ABC ended Forever). I too was...

Yeah, I picked up the occasional Archie & Jughead (and Betty and Veronica), but TBH I spent a LOT more time reading Marvel comix. Who could have ever guessed they'd grow up into IMAX movies? I'm just...

The Csi5 and CsiA6 sound essentially identical. The primary difference is cosmetic, the Csi5 having a bit of pewter trim and the A6 solid black. The slightly curved cabinet of the A6 doesn't cause it...

On the contrary, I actually prefer them to the Rti6/A3 for surrounds, EXCEPT where they must keep up with the likes of A7/A9 fronts, then they are just overpowered. The smaller 4/A1 have a more...

Go for it! That is a great price. And just FWIW, as I write this I have a pair of Rti4's and a Csi5 sitting right here in our living room. They are decent speakers. I had been using the Csi5 along...

Sorry, but I think I forgot the question. Are you talking about using the A1's as mains or as surrounds? In the first case, I would say NO WAY... I wouldn't use A1's as mains anywhere other than a...

The CsiA4 and A6 each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Also attempts to match driver sizes between the center and mains/surrounds doesn't always make sense. I've run the Csi3(A4) and...

Rti(A) vs Lsi(M)

As many of you may know, I am heavily invested in Rti's. In our previous home we needed them for HT, as the living room was "deep" and perfect for 7.2 with rear surrounds. We have since moved to a...

I can't answer your question, but it's good to know that replacement drivers for the original Lsi's have dried up, as I was about to buy a pair of used Lsi15's that sounded too good to be true (the...

So it sounds like the 15's are basically the 9's with a couple diaphragms in the bottom?

There's a pair of Lsi15's on local CL at a great price that look to be in good condition. As I recall there's something unusual about the way the woofers are handled on these... can someone...

The LsiM704c was just delivered. It weighs a ton (I can't imagine what the 706 would weigh!) I'm hoping to use it with 703's for LCR and maybe a pair of (Rti series) Fxi4's on the rear wall above...

Thanks! On paper the 704 appears to be the better match to the 703's based on driver size. I came very close to pulling the trigger on a 704 for $400 during the F&F sale but eventually came to my...
