Thanks for the suggestion on the 704's. Are those prices at adorama for new or B stock? Before picking up the S60's, I was seriously thinking of four LSiM703's for front R/L and rear surrounds. It's priced really well at Polk's eBay store. $1500 USD for the four and a free 706 center. I never considered the 704 but It's definitely top of the list now.
Dude, if you can get your hands on two pairs of 703's and a 706, I'd be a jumpin on it!!!

To each his own with the 704, but after going through three different series of Polk speakers, as far as the center goes, the "big dog" of the series is the only CC I'll own in my set up i,e: CSII with the Monitors, CSiA6 with the RTiA's and now the 706. After all, for home theater, the dialogue is probably the most important link in the chain, why skimp on your center?? IMO of course

And to address your B stock question, I've gone with B stock amps more than once and now my 706 is B stock, no complaints and happy to have saved hundreds of dollars. The performance is as good as A stock and you still get a warranty.

I remember being skeptical in the beginning regarding B stock items, but once I dove into the pool, I found out that the water was just fine.

UPS delivered my lsim 703 this afternoon and open and connect to my system. It doesnt fit on top of my cabinet so for now I put it on top of my subwoofer. It sounds very clean. My plan previously is to get lsim 703 for now and get 705 if $ allow. But for the size of 703 I couldnt hang this on the wall.

Congratulations! Yeah, the 703 is no wall hanger. Audiovisor has some nice Sanus steel stands in a few different heights that won't break the bank.

Where my primus P363 placed previously between cabinet and subwoofer. Sub was close to the right and left wall previously. I just move it close to cabinet so i can put 703 on top. So now P363 will go to rear surround.

Thanks Geoff... Is it the link above? But seems out of my range for a speaker stand.

Sorry about the post above, I was starting to write a message and hit the post button by accident. Still looking for a way to delete the post, but I'm new to posting here.

I was looking for some help on speaker placement. I have a set of Polk Audio 65RT in Wall speakers I wanted to add to my basement. The issues is that I have a perfect storm for where I thought would be the best place to install them.

I have framed the size the projected image would take up on my wall as well as where I was thinking of placing the FR and FL. I was planning on using a phantom centre and eventually adding another 65RT or a matching centre speaker when I get more budget to do so.

What I'm wondering is if I should expect to get decent sound from the fronts being so close to each other.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm no pro but from what I see, you're gonna have reflection problems with that right wall, visually and audibly. Once the screen is lit up, light will spill onto that wall and reflect back and wash out your blacks. Your FR will have reflections as well being that close. As for your FL, can't it be placed closer to the corner near the door?

More separation would be ideal. And Darren has a point about 1st order reflections. And they do seem to be a bit too close to the floor.

If....your screen is an acoustic screen, you could mount them behind and space them accordingly.

As far as the right wall, you could paint it flat black and ideally, place some acoustic foam to handle the reflections.

Thanks for the responses Darren and Geoff.
Unfortunately there’s not enough room to move the FL closer to the door with the 65rt. The only other option would be to change the front speakers to a pair of 70rt so I can shift the pair over to the other wall some. I wasn’t sure I would get the same sound out of those though. Anyone have experience with those speakers? Also how much clearance would I need to give between the side wall and the FR speaker do you think?

I believe I can move the speakers up a little so the top would be about 40” from the floor.
The screen isn’t acoustic. Just a basic framed screen.

I’ll have to see about painting it black. I honestly didn’t think about the reflections for the projector before.

It's not easy, but you may be able to wall mount the 703's in certain circumstances. I have mine wall mounted on my rear walls and angled in toward the MLP. On one side, I was able to put the wall mount into studs, but on the other side, I only had drywall, so I had to buy some WingIts drywall anchors. Here's the links to the mounts and the anchors if you're interested.

I have 70RT speakers in the living room ceiling for rear surround and four of them in the basement theater ceiling for Atmos. They’re not designed for much response below (probably) 60Hz, but I really like the way they sound—full and detailed. Plus your sub will fill in the gaps.

Best of luck getting your project sorted.

I moved the subwoofer and the right speaker. It looks much better now and sounds great.

Nicely done! Working with limited space can be a challenge for sure, I'm there myself

But you're right, it does look better and it's good to hear that the change improved the sound as well!!

Thanks Todd. I will measure up the space again to make sure I can fit them and try to go listen to them today. Since they are quite a bit smaller I should be able to place one on the left side and higher on the wall then move the one in the corner over some. I assume they sound similar to the 65RT being the same series.

FYI, the 70RT speakers are extremely deep—I just remembered. You’ll need at least 8” from the finished side of the drywall to the back of the speaker enclosure. Polk’s website should give you mounted depth.

Sorry if I got your hopes up if you don’t have the room.

Wow! 8 3/8", you're not kidding when you say they're extremely deep. lol

That's quite a bit of space. I do have storage behind that wall, so it's mostly open, but I will need to measure the places I would thinking to put them to make sure. There are pipes etc. behind the wall. Thanks for the heads up.

Lol, I can dig it, I hate it too!!

Nice on the 80.3, I upgraded my 70.4 to an 80.2 so we're essentially using the same unit. I'm liking the balanced connections over the "un" so far. But, having to use the split HDMI outs on the Blu-ray to see any 4K
