Keep in mind the levels as well. The Klipsch's are rated at 96dB while the Sierra's are 87dB's.

If you kept the volume at the same level for both, the Klipsch's would sound fuller than the...

Is Rapace only making a quick appearance? I haven't seen her in any trailers and I thought she was out for this (might have been her exiting Covenant with the rover in the latest trailer).

Are you sure about that? It seems that if you notify Ascend within 30 days of the transfer of ownership and include the original invoice, then they will honor the warranty. It's probably worth...

Sorry, I didn't catch that you had a CSi5 on the way. I'm not familiar with the older series, but it sounds like you got a great deal if it's the equivalent of the A6.

I'll add that if you do decide on going with the Polk, go with the cheaper CSiA4 if you plan to stick with the RTiA3's. I found the CSiA6 is really only needed when matched up with the RTiA9's. I...

You'll be fine. Mine is in a closet and works perfect (I setup with shield remote but use a Harmony). I believe it's Bluetooth, but I'm sure you could get a quick answer on their website.
