Tom (aka Voldemort) I agree with Aarghon in his assessment. I have the A9's currently powered by the XPA5 and love the sound. Pesonally I do not like Klipsch's trademark horn tweeters as I feel they...

Traditionally speakers are measured from the edge of the frame. Seems unfair, as woofers with a wide surround can be advertised as being much larger than they actually are (e.g., BIC-F12) , whereas...

The 505 is a decent subwoofer and the M40's are nice little speakers for small rooms (I used to have M40's in our bedroom). If you want to stay with the Monitor line, first I suggest you LEAP upon...

The 12's are beasts though, big and heavy. Read back a few pages regarding speaker break-in... i.e., don't judge your new speakers til after you've used them for a few weeks.

Csi5 is a great match for the 10's and 12's. You can use the Tsi's for surrounds for the time being, but I suspect that eventually you will want to have Rti's all around. Things just work out that...

The Rti12's, which are essentially the same as the newer RtiA9's, are indeed more powerful than the 10's (or A7's) and are slightly different tonally, but where the 10's can be powered by a larger...

Boomy indeed. FWIW I was driven out of a BIC thread here on AVS a few years back by the fanboys when I expressed some disappointment with the performance of my new F12 sub. They all said the problem...

Amen to that. Rti's are leaps and bounds over the Monitor/Tsi line. Wish I'd known sooner just how true that is!

And it just keeps getting better. Being happy with what you have is far better than...

Agree with you on that. The Fxi's are great surrounds, and it sounds like you have the right room for their placement. The A1's would work well if side mounted, but for back wall mounting the Fxi's...

I should probably throw out here - just to keep things "real" - that pumping 300 watts into Rti8's is pretty much overkill. Even 200 watts is more than those speakers really need. If you can't get...

Going from 90wpc to 120wpc won't do much for you, but jumping up to 200 or 300 wpc will definitely be noticeable, even if you only listen at moderate volume levels. As Geoff says, it's about the...

The RtiA9's are heads and shoulders above the M70's, but they are indeed very power hungry. The difference in clarity between the Rti series and the Monitor series is amazing and immediately...

FYI I never mentioned anything about "hundreds" of hours... is that not correct?

100 hrs = approx four days use.

They will not match at all, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I did the same thing a few years ago... trying a Csi5 with M70's, and ended up upgrading the M70's to Rti's. Your Tsi400's are...

You really don't want a smaller center. The RtiA4 is okay for TV but not for movies (imo).

I'd say do whatever you gotta do to accommodate the Csi5.

The A9's are superior to the A7's - IMO and probably anyone who has owned both... clearer high's due to the twin 5" drivers vs the 6" in the A7's, and deeper lows from triple bass drivers vs two in...

As it appears that the Rti6's are just about $30 more than the M40's I'd go with the Rti6's. I've owned the M40's and they are respectable speakers providing good bang for the buck (I used them in...

The CS2 is a good center but is a better match with the M70's rather than the M60's. Difference in price on NewEgg between a pair of M60's and M70's is about $100 for the pair and is well worth the...
