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...

The 7" woofers in the A7's and A9's do deliver some nice bass. I run mine crossed at 40Hz and Geoff is running his full range. For music I run them in stereo as full range also. The A5's (and Rti8's)...

If Pioneer's claim were true, then this AVR must have a greater than one kilowatt power supply, which by itself would likely weigh over 50 lbs. Heck, it takes two of us to lift my Emo XPA5.

If you order from Polk online you will start to receive their coupons in you email. All I bought was some repair parts, but that was enough to get my email registered.

I picked up a Polk DSW-660 a couple years ago at 50% off and was indeed underwhelmed. As this is AFAIK Polk's top line sub, I've pretty much written them off as far as subs go. OTOH I've been really...

Congrats on that as well. I've had a M70 5.1 system listed here on AVS for about a month now, decided I'll just leave it with the house when we move (including a DSW-660 sub).

Most higher end AVR's have a 12V trigger output (one or more) which can turn the amp on and off. Emo also sells a "splitter" that has 4 12V trigger outputs from a single trigger input.

Best thing you could do is go for the Rti8's if you can swing it and pick up a pair of Fxi4's for surrounds. The CS2 will stick out like a sore thumb for the time being, but eventually you will want...

I'd say offer $300 for them.

New Rti8's (same speakers, square box vs rounded cabinet) with full warranty sell for $380/pair on NewEgg.

Regarding my earlier "weakest link" remark, the CsiA6 (and Csi5) are great centers, and match seamlessly with the A3/A5/A7's, but using the A9's just puts everything else into a different class. With...

A larger center to match the Rti line would be great. The A6 is definitely the weak link in an A9 configuration. I bought a third A9 during the F&F sale to replace the A6, but won't have room to...

The 1010 should be adequate, but the A7's would deliver more oomph with more headroom driving them.

Going from A1's to A7's is quite a bump up indeed.
And the A7's match the A6 nicely.
The A1's do make nice surrounds, too.
