I asked if the 1037's and CC1008 would be an OK match.
"100%. The crossover slopes match, so steering and timing elements will match. Timber will also match. This is an easy marriage."
So there you go. You really can't get a better answer than that. The Rotel would probably be fine with these speakers. I have the 1027's and love them. I am sure the 1037's are really powerful.
Ya that definitely was the best answer I could ask for. Thank you for taking the time for replying. I've been reading this thread for a couple of days now and found it extremely helpful. I'm now "trying" to enjoy the last days with my Polk lsim's. bitter sweet I guess for me because I just bought these speakers 2 months ago. But after hearing the Electra line, all of a sudden I wanted a divorce and be with my new ones. Haha
But regarding the amp part. What would you recommend. It's not very easy for me to audition amps here (Philippines) because almost all stores here will just tell me that they'll just order the amp and that's when I can listen to them. So in other words, I'll have to buy them first.
I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to our hobby because I just started about 2 years ago. This will be my first time to go for separates. I'll be looking at a new processor too. Any ideas?
