One is in the limbo because they put a hold in my Citi CC for $749 and they tried to charge me the final invoice with taxes for $796 and was declined. It's a $1000 credit limit card. The 706C was declined as well because I forgot to activate the new card from Capital One, that's all my fault. The card is already active so Monday they can do the transaction again for the 706C. Monday morning I will call them to see what they can do. I printed all my online statements so they can see the holds made by Polk Audio and make the corrections they need to do..... Very frustrating frown.gif

Well, if you already have confirmation from Polk (Heidi), then everything will be fine in terms of our orders, I mean you orders........wink.gif

don't know about the heights... but for rears on Bi-pole .. can't be beat man .. I'm so Glad i was nudged gently (shoved off a cliff with a bulldozer) in that direction by Gee-off ..

Kind of like Pacific Rim... saw it in the theater.. I love that movie.. The alot of people were saying it had crappy acting bla bla bla.. Its a monster movie.. with lots of badass big things smashing stuff... And it delivered fantastically .. Have it on pre-order now..

When I came upstairs she asked if that is how we always watch stuff and I said no and she said it was shaking the whole house.


I know the feeling .. the wifey doesn't like it "too loud" not quite sure what that is.. but i just keep going til she starts frowning and cut it down a db or 2.. lol

What is the point of having a killer system if you are not able to use it at reference levels!?!?!

biggrin.gif

As long as the wife lets you have the killer system then you will always know your potential wink.gif



So i ended up not watching HTYD or Brave ... boys wanted to watch Cars 2 .. Not alot of bass scenes ... but sounded good

Audyssey set me up with

L/R- 40hz
C- 40hz
Surrounds - 70hz
Sub- 120hz at 79dbs

about 45 minutes into the movie i made my first adjustment

L/R- 50hz
C-60hz
Surrounds-80hz
Sub-80hz at 79dbs

After another 30 minutes i came to what i like best

L/R-60hz (mailny the lack of an external amp, would probably have set at 40hz)
C-60hz
Surrounds-80hz
sub-120hz at 79 dbs (might turn the gain up a tad on the amp) say to 85 dbs

i know most guys say to cross everything over at 80 but i like a little bit more in voices in the CC.. And i really enjoy the sub coming in at a little bit of the higher than 80hz.. Again this was with one movie at near reference levels and another late at night toned way down while the boys were sleeping.. sounds really good at low volumes..

Got some music going now and still seems to have exactly what i want .. Will do more movies over the next few days and see where i end up ..

Its all about your room, your ears and your preferences. Like I said I like 80hz for my center, but thats me in my setup. As long as you tried it, tweaked it and like it who cares. All I care about is you find what you like and dont just go with 80hz just because. Experimenting with it to make it sound the best is the MOST fun part of everything.

You will never know if you love it or hate it unless you try it. Plus tweaking your crossovers doesnt cost you anything, though it may lead you to buy an external amp lol....

I mean, I would love to be able to buy the LSiM's, but I simple can't afford them (perhaps in the future, but not now). If I were in your shoes, I'll pull the trigger on the fronts and center. And eventually (down the road), I'll be adding the surround speakers.
As I posted before, the RTiA's are really good speakers. I use them for both purposes music and movies without issues. They sound great!! But, a bit bright for some people.
No!!! One setup should be enough.
Yes, I meant that your habits might change to heavily listening music (70% of the time) than watching movies (30% of the time). At least that is what I experienced after adding a set of RTiA's speakers to my room.
You are not asking much, but if you want to have the very best..........then you know the LSiM series will be the safest bet in this case.........IMHO.

Cheers!

And, in my opinion which I believe is also shared by others here, is the more power you put to the A9's, the better they sound.

One other thing, if you do in fact go for the RTiA9's, please consider the FXiA6's for your surrounds. You will not regret it.

Why is it the more you ask and the more you get the harder it gets to make a decision?smile.gif
I feel like breaking something. eek.gif

I see a lot of talk here about the LSiMs and it's understandable because if the best is on sale WHY NOT upgrade if you can afford it.
I would say I would be listening to mostly music 70/30.
If I got the RTiAa9's I would also get the CSiA6 and the FXiA6's you mentioned.
If I got the LSiM's it would be just the fronts and the center.
I also wonder if I go for the LSiM's should it be the 705 or 707's?
I also don't know if the LSiM's need an external amp? If I get the RTiA'9, at least for the near future they will be running off straight off receiver power. I also don't know if getting the LSiM's, I'm setting my sights too high.

I understand you guys can't make the decision for me but I know that ANYTHING will be better than I have now. Are wonder if the RTiA's are good enough or does it make sense to go all out and get the LSiM's? My fronts right now consist of Panasonic hand me down 40w speakers.

Not to reiterate, but what would you guys do in the same situation?
post #21037 of 35019

I would go the same route Enrico is going. He currently has the A9's and is going for the 705's and a 706. Not sure how you can set your sights too high. Huge upgrade from what you have but you might as well get the best while you can at those prices. The surrounds don't have to be in the same line but you can add those later when funds are available. You can run them without an amp as long as you don't play them too awful loud. You can get the LSiM's without making a pit stop on the A9's like Enrico did. Either way get a receiver with pre-outs so if you want to add an amp in the future you'll be able to.

Thanks Ender .. This is why I love this thread ... one of the only ones were guys will support you doing your own thing, suggest what can do to improve it and what you may do wrong that is damaging. But wont say "You have to do this and you have to get this, bla bla bla"

Get the best your budget will allow and you wont be dissatisfied. I have the A9's, F/X6's (rears), Monitor 35's (surround backs) and an A6 running off just an AVR(Onkyo TX-NR929) and i'm just tickled pink. I don't play to loud and its more than i could have imagined. Do what you can to not have that what if feeling after you purchase .. I knew my limit on cash. I was originally going with A5's or A7's .. soooo glad i didn't .. LSiM's ... way out of my price range..

If your budget can fit lsim you will not regret getting them and the 705 is smaller simpler to place in room (707 some times needs a lot of room ) many people say it's better for mid-range as well. With the A9 all indications are that you should be budgeting for an amp.

I feel a little guilty when I talk lsim i skipped the rtia line. I have owned monitor and lsim. So I cannot say how much better they are over rtia. when I wanted to move my monitors to another room I had to pick rtia or lsim since I know what they sound like from my office rig. I went lsim. the only thing I regret is the fact that I wanted 705 and I went with 703. then two weeks later polk has this sale.
post #21040 of 35019

Yep, if they had this sale when I got the 703's I would have gotten the 705's. Then I wouldn't have felt the need to trade the 703's to get more bottom end without a sub. Crap happens.

I take it you don't read this thread much. That's ok though cause I'd probably have more of my sanity left if I didn't either. biggrin.gif But thanks for the heads up anyway!

Not to reiterate, but what would you guys do in the same situation?

Ok, I will break it down for ya smile.gif.

Any of the speaker you talk about really need a dedicated amp (LSiM 705, LSiM 707, RTi A9's) so the dedicated amp is a moot point. You will want one for any of those speakers to get the most out of them. Also while Polk lists the LSiM's as 8 ohm speakers, honestly I dont know how much I agree with that, I have seen spec's showing they dip just as low as the older LSi line. The RTi line is a true 8 ohm speaker and IMHO easier to drive (minus the RTi A7's and RTi A9's). For most folks its not a problem since they already have a dedicated amp to run their RTi A or LSi speakers, so they dont notice the difference. So assume you need an amp.

The LSiM line surrounds are quite expensive and you cant mix and match the LSiM line with the LSi line so you would end up matching with a RTi surround of some sort. Personally its not as important to timbre match surrounds, however I would suggest doing it anyway so your going to have to pony up a pretty penny for the surrounds for a 5, 7, 9 or 11 channel. Also the 703's are not really easy to mount on wall stands (I had a demo set for a couple months) so you really have to get the dipole ones, or use free standing stands.

Of the LSiM line I prefer the 705's or 703's, not the 707's. The 707's can be hard to dial in and really need a BIG room to sound their best. If you can afford to get 2 sets of 703's and a 706 center I honestly think that would be a really good setup, however the 703's will not wallmount so you need some decent stands which can be a bit pricey, or the surrounds which are more expensive than the 703's

While the LSiM's are king, unless you can either get a full 5 channel setup now, or wait it out to drop the cash on the super expensive surrounds, I think the RTi line is what you want.

So I have a different suggestion for you here. Its a cost effective option, it wont be as good as the LSiM's but it will be a NICE step up for movies and still sound decent for music.

Fronts: RTI A7's - the A9's while nice are just overkill if you have a sub and I would suggest getting a decent one to fill in the gap in frequencies between the A7's and A9's.
Center: RTi A6 - go as big as you can
Surrounds: RTi A3's - they still sound good and are cost effective
Optional Rear Surrounds: RTi A3's - again they are good and cost e
Sub: SVS cylinder sub (cheaper to ship and cheaper than the box subs as well) (feel free to insert your own sub preference here, but suggest in the 500-600 dollar range)

In all my listening while Direct mode on my Integra sounds nice (bypasses the auto calibration and uses just Left and Right), I find I prefer Stereo mode (keeps EQ on but only uses Left, Right and Sub). In stereo mode the A7's and a good sub will sound better than the A9's without a sub IMHO.

Also the A7's dont need as much power as the A9's from a dedicated amp, so you could possibly get a lower wattage amp (which equals less expensive) and save yourself some cost.

Quote me if I'm wrong .. but doesn't the A9's have a more precisely and better designed cabinet with better acoustics than the A7 and A5, which makes the mid-range and high end deliverance quite a bit better? I heard this and i'm not by any means saying it is 100% fact. Although i have not heard the A7's and A5's i do love mt A9's .. I do however plan on powering them correctly in the future.. but i figured if there is a possibility that he will eventually want an external amp he might as well execute the A9's .. Not trying to sway anyone .. bur this is basically the same dilemma i went through .. remember .. i have awesome gear .. but i'm still learning and being noobish biggrin.gif

Ok, you asked us: so, here is what I would do if I was you:

Front speakers - LSiM703 - $749.96
Center - LSiM706c - $599.98
Surround - LSiM702F/X - $749.98

Total - $2,099.92*


If you go this route "instead" of buying the 707's + the 706c ($2,599.94*), you should be saving $500.00, and that money would be used towards the purchase of a subwoofer (SVS, PSA, Rythmik, etc.). Yeah, you will still need to add another $200.00 to $300.00 to buy it, but that should be easier for you to do, instead of trying later to buy the 702F/X at regular price.

My 2 cents!

* Prices do not include taxes!

Eh, the A7's are almost exact same cabinet design (but a bit smaller and probably a little less bracing) but a different speaker configuration v the A9's. You are correct that some say the midrange is more accurate due to the difference in the speaker configuration/crossover (dont remember specifically what the differences are off the top of my head). However on a budget I would go with the A7's, and even the A5's. Both those speakers will provide more than enough SPL, dont suck as much power as the A9's so will allow a lesser AVR to be used powerwise, and let you get away with spending more of your budget on a sub which IMHO is as important as the front 3 if not more. A better sub can crossover higher and blend seemlessly and then fill in the lower frequencies the A7's and A5's cant cover.

For music your looking for the right balance. While the A9's may have it, everywhere you read about them you see folks dropping lots of cash on mega amps to power them, because that much power is whats needed to really make them shine. The A7's and A5's due to their fewer speakers can shine with less wattage and provide just as much good sound.

Like I tell everyone here. I have the LSi 15's not because I think they are better than the LSi 9's, or LSi 7's, but due SOLELY to the price I got them at. I have the LSi F/X because I have a LARGE space behind me that I need to get sound into to make it sound diffused right. If I had it to do all over again in the LSi line and was purchasing them at regular prices, I would have 3 sets of LSi 7's (fronts, side surrounds, rear surrounds) and a LSiC center. I cant do heights or wides, or again I would be going with LSi 7's. Everything would be wallmounted and I would be super pumped.

If I was going with the RTi line I would have RTi A7's for my Left/Right, a RTI A6 center, RTi A3 side and rear surrounds. For heights I would again go with A3's and for wides I would go with A5's.

Just ordered the FXI A6's for 249.00 woot!

On a side note imo the A7 or A5 is plenty of speaker...dont get me wrong the A9's are brutes but I would save money and purchase a quality sub. That imo is what makes or breaks a system...the rest is splitting hairs.

I have watched it. And I'll say it again.

He was better in LAC than in OHF -- I'll give him that much. Sure, he was in the role of a somewhat sadistic killer plotting his vengeance...but I think there are many actors out there who would have done a more convincing job.

Ya know what??? I was just thinking about how everyone complains about taxes. What if we looked at them like this?

Smooth roads (ok never mind this one)
Fire department service (could be nice one day)
Police officers (forget this one too) :eek
Public schools (unless you live in Mississippi. Then that one is moot)
National Parks (this one really is a good thing)
Defense - Paying for our freedom is well worth it
Prisons (wouldn't it be cheaper to cain people and execute the bad ones)
Welfare programs (wait a second, does this mean I won't have to work any more!!!)
Social programs (Medicare and social security - ****, I forgot I have to pay extra for social security and it won't be here when I need to use it after paying for forty seven years) mad.gif

Never mind. It's probably well founded to be pissed off about paying taxes. Especially if you live in Cali like me... rolleyes.gif

LOL.............I just noted that (taxes not included) as it seems Polk doesn't charge taxes in some places. IIRC Enrico was able to add an extra speaker after he noted no taxes were charged to his order.

Nonetheless, you have a point right there......wink.gif

Just those for now. I have A7's, wanted to upgrade my CSi A4 center to the A6 but it will not fit my Credenza by a 1/4" unfortunately. I thought about removing the feet, but I am not sure thats a good idea.

How is that XS30 treating you?

Forget about that... They put holds on my credit cards with no taxes but the final charge came with taxes. LSiM 705 is $796.85 instead of $749.98
