Torii: On the contrary, smaller speakers with a single driver and tweeter (2-way) are usually less sensitive (check the sensitivity ratings on various speaker configurations), which I assume has...

I purchased just two R5Bi’s (left and right channel) and did a few tests, before making my decision not to go with the more expensive dedicated center channel. I first laid one speaker on its side...

And thank you, Tom, for allowing such a worry-free audition and allaying my concerns of sending such a fine sub back to you. I’ve just received notice of the refund. Wow, that was fast! You just...

The R5Ci? No. I wanted identical speakers across my front stage, so I chose another R5Bi to use as a center. Because of its very large dispersion characteristics, I could lay it on its side...

BTW, welcome to AVS. Sorry about my poor manners. I am not familiar with those speakers, so I cannot make a comment.

It looks like a beautiful home with that wonderful open feel. Unfortunately,...

I actually really like that bed-liner black. It’s tough, durable, and doesn’t show finger prints or dust. I was also impressed with the Hsu satin black. I’m not a satin black fan, but the finish...

I doubt you will get many people that don’t think ceiling speakers are a big mistake for the front stage. Nor do I think you will get many people saying your Def Tech sub is fine in your large, open...

Wow, you’re gonna be easy (from $200 to $700 in one day). There are some Ascend Sierra’s you might also like (only 2k) :). Seriously, if I were you I’d up the budget on the subwoofer and get the...

Hello, Hop! To tell you the truth, I think it was my bookcase that told me to reevaluate. You wouldn’t believe how loudly that huge, heavy piece of furniture vibrated. I have never heard anything...

You are correct, basshead. In trying to integrate both, I never gave the S3000i the credit it deserved. This became more apparent this past week. That’s why I posted what I did above. I should...

It sure sounds like that you’ve found “your” speakers. Congratulations! I’m very happy to hear that you love the R55Ti towers as much as you do, especially at the meager price they are going for. ...

Yep, totally understand about the Maggies size (especially width). That's too bad about the ML's. The Theos are one of Martin Logan's better deals on ESL's. They have the same panel size as the...

guyver96: I’m not sure what you mean by size. Are you saying the R5Bi’s are too large? Too small?

Last year (black Friday) the R5Bi’s went for around $165 / pair (if memory serves me). They sold out quickly.

Perhaps they don’t feel the need for a subwoofer if their tower speakers have good bass response. Perhaps their tower speakers are for music only. Perhaps they like the looks of towers better than...

It really doesn't matter which budget sub, since the media (DirecTV) won't reach down low enough to push the subs. For 75 bucks you could buy a blu-ray player and rent movies via Netflix. This...

If all you listen to is the neutered frequency response from DirecTV, then there is no need for a more expensive subwoofer. If you play blu-ray discs (or plan on playing them), then I’d go with a...
