Alright, so i have skimmed/read through the thread twice now.
Also read a little at polks forums as well
I have a few questions, as i previously posted on the page before i have the R50s and 4 RTi4s that i plan on using for a 7.1 setup. I am also building the exact same setup for my parents new home theater so my questions are really two fold.
I know the CSi25 is supposed to be the
match for the R50s and that it is discontinued. I have read varrying opinions that the CSi3 and CSi5(particularly the 5) are overkill for the R50s. And that the CSi5 apparetly makes more bass than the R50s, not sure i entirely believe that, i have only heard the CSi5 once, and frys didnt have the R50s to match them with it.
So if i did get the CSi5 is it going to overkill with the R50s, or can i tweak it enough to get it to match better. I do plan on eventually upgrading from the R50s, but my parents setup will virtually be the same indefinitely. So i should i got CSi3 for their setup(on the other hand their room is on the larger side) and CSi5 for mine since i plan on eventually going to RTi8's or better?
My other question is i am considering the Onkyo 705 at 100watts/ch, is 100wpc going to be enough to power all of them together?
I currently have my R50s hooked up to an old old aiwa 125/w amp just for music listening and the 125 watts really opens them up at higher volumes, but the RTi4s definitely suffered at louder volumes at 125watts.
I'll probably do 50/50 music and home theater and when i listen to music i do like to crank it up, so is 100watts for the R50s going to generate clipping or distortion?
Thanks for the help in advance.
