BTW my surrounds sit atop a pair of Rti8's.... however tall those are.

If you can mount FxiA6's on the side walls, they will provide a wide, spacious surround experience. The A3's are too directional for a deep room, and it would be noticeable that the sound has moved...

Depends on your room config and surround placement. If you have a deep room and looking for side surrounds, go with the Fxi's. If you have a wide room and looking more for wide surrounds go with the...

Long story. I had Monitor 70's with M60 surrounds and a CS20 center. Still dissatisfied, I upgraded the center to a Csi5. The difference was obvious, and soon I upgraded to Rti10 mains with Rti8...

Excellent rundown of the Rti towers, mr266. I was using the Rti8's as surrounds with some Rti12 mains (they're all still sitting here in the LR). For that, they worked very well, even better than...
