And I agree, WAY more important than speakers, just irksome since I set all this up knowing it would be my last chance for a long time to take care of this....

Hm, my last one they "manually" broke the water and wife delivered within 30 mins....

If I were a woman I think I'd rather have a c-section. I heard a woman on TV once say that having natural birth is like taking your upper lip and pulling it over your head. Ouch!

Yeah, but thats not an option. Her body cant pass the baby hence the c-section regardless.....

While I am waiting for the guy to get back to me on the LSiC, ugh, i have just been researching other speakers for fun. You guys have always given me an honest opinion. What are your thoughts on this 5.1 definitive tech setup for 2k?

Just don't ever believe in the specs Def Tech claims. They claim : Frequency response: 20Hz - 30kHz. for those towers. That built in powered sub will no way hit a true 20Hz., Also I would never buy a speaker with a built in powered sub if planning to add a real powered sub. Honest opinion.

MN gotta make it harder for ya. I have heard good things about those speakers, even on the Polk Forum.

I wouldn't go sub less but those speakers don't require an amp right away (but still recommend it at some point)

So I would suggest sending a PM to Mantis on the Polk Forum as he runs those exact speakers IIRC. He will give you an honest compare.

Also if you want I can give you my phone so we can talk via phone or text smile.gif.

We are upstairs trying to make the wife comfy right now. No baby tonight it looks like and looks like a loooong weekend.

True but the recovery is a lot faster with natural birth. Either way I'm glad to be a guy.

All I know is the package includes a very good sub. The rest would only be a guess.

Hope the weekend goes well. Both my kids were born via a C section and all went smooth. The first child was an emergeny C section after infucing labor and the second scheduled.
Congrats on the first child. I'm sure it will enjoy the sweet sound system.

Nope, I only do it for my son and his on the job education. I'm trying to cram some trig into him at home on his own time. What the heck, I ain't got nothing much better to do.

I'll do that. I just cracked one open. A little bit of Bass Mekanik to get the blood flowing. Then something a little more soothing.

The wait will be worth it after the baby is born. smile.gif

Might throw some techno on to help make the baby come sooner. She really likes the bass....

Maybe some Skrillex, crystal method, chemical brothers....

Gotta love me some old school Crystal Method. Vegas just brings back all kinds of memories. Great album!

Need advise regarding the surrounds to go along with my Rti A9 fronts, CSI A6 Center.

What is recommended to match up. I was thinking maybe RTi A5 or FXi A6

Hopefully when funds become available I plan to upgrade my rear surrounds which are the Monitor 50s

My receiver is the Onkyo 809

Thx
post #16617 of 35124
I'm running A7's as surrounds and just received FxiA6's to replace Rti6's on the rear channels.
What I've found works best is get the largest speaker you can afford, regardless of its position.

Agree!

Only consideration is going to be if the OP has the room to accommodate large speakers as recommended. Now, if space is an issue, then the FXi A6's are the best match as surrounds for his RTi A9's.

My room size is approx 12 x 22. My surrounds are currently on each side of the main couch for viewing tv. I don't believe I can do any larger than a 5.1 setup.

Thanks

So, if you already have the room (based on the monitor 50), then it seems real estate is not a problem to add floorstanding speakers. However, that will lead to the eternally present question: what is your is budget?.

You can evaluate A5's or A7's as surrounds. Some will tell you that it is overkill! But when you run all those speakers on 5 channel stereo.........wow, it is a really nice experience!
