I wanted to come back to this thread to give an update.
I recently reacquired another new set of RTi A9 and a CSI A6. Since enough time had passed I was also able to acquire a Monoprice 300W (bridged), and a Behringer NU6000D.
After a small hickup with wiring all works as it should, center channel bridged, and L/R on their own channel.
Everything sounds nice and clear. There is finally some bass, but I will say one thing though. Some reviews I have read, owners were stating that there was enough bass that they were contemplating deleting their subs as there was enough bass coming from the A9s. I cannot state I agree with their assertions.
I currently have my AVR set to full on LCR, center amp and Behringer set to full gain. What I have not done yet is run AccuEQ.
One of my test tracks is the note generated at 0:25 from the track Korn - Freak On A Leash
. I am using Spotify rather than YouTube. When the bass note hits, it is very weak.
Aside from the bass, these speakers are very clear, mids are precise, and they are not fatiguing on the ears like metal tweeters .
So when it comes to bass. Feeding these tower speakers well over the recommended wattage, am I expecting too much from these speakers?
All feedback welcome.
