I have a third A9 that I used for the center, thinking it would be more powerful than the A6. Unfortunately, if properly crossed at 80Hz, the A9 is really nothing more than a CsiA4... two 5" midrange...

Fxi's would cost $400-600/pr unless you find a bargain, vs $250-300 for comparable bookies. Bipoles do give you a better surround field due to their broad dispersion pattern, whereas the bookies give...
