You are right about Polk subs - they are not that great. You can find better for the price (except maybe the 505 is a good bargain sub). I have no experience with ID subs but have stayed away from...

The 6" drivers deliver male voices much better and are noticeably better for HT (action movies) compared to 5", which are fine for TV and casual music. I picked up a used Csi5 in excellent condition...

I had M40's in the bedroom before upgrading to Lsi9's in there. And we still have M60's, M30's and a CS10 in our vacation condo. As I said, great bang for the buck, but the Rti's are much better...

The M40's and CS10 are probably the best bang for the buck in the Monitor line, but the Rti's are head and shoulders above the Monitors as far as clarity and definition are concerned. If you were not...

To be honest, the feet never bothered me, but I have found that a black marker can tone down the pewter trim on the grille, and the garish nameplates in particular.

The Csi5 is huge compared to the Csi3 and has two rear ports. We use a Csi3 with RtiA3's (formerly Rti6's) in the family room due to size constraints, and the closed back cabinet of the Csi3 allows...

I had the Denon 3312 (125wpc) and RtiA7's and while they seemed to sound okay, they sounded noticeably better when I bought the XPA-5 to power them and the new A9's. In other words, does the AVR...

I used the OWM3's as surrounds in the family room with a pair of Sony SS-B3000's for many years, and later with Polk M50's. They seemed to match very well with just about anything that has a dome...

I find the Lsi's are more nuanced at the high end where the Rti's are more pronounced. The Lsi's may be more accurate in their reproduction, which I find most noticeable in percussion... for example,...

The sound may indeed change somewhat after breaking in, but the Lsi line does sound different from the Rti's. While I have never heard the LsiM's specifically, I remember that my Lsi9's were...

My guess is that your Fxi's just need to break in for a few weeks (assuming they are factory new, not refurbs). Without a sub, you won't get a whole lot out of the 6" woofers you have all around (on...

The A7's don't have quite the bass that the A9's can deliver, still do well when crossed at 60Hz. They will deliver better bass if moved closer to the corner, maybe just inside the subs in the photos...
