I think I'm only going to go with a 5.1 system. The room is real small. 12x11. I purchased 2-LSi9's, LSi7's & LSiC at the same time. I then found a deal on 2-LSi9's and purchased those too. So I'm going to use either 4-LSi9's or use the 2-LSi7's as rears.

No idea on a sub yet.

See it's a small room. Still have to purchase a couch. Seating will only be about 6' from screen.
The screen's bigger when you sit closer, and at 1080, you can sit pretty dang close!

Chris that box is 19in x 19in x 19in

Sure you can go bigger but in smaller room where is the linedrawn and when is it over powering the rest of your system. I like the idea of an IB as mucha s the next nutter on here but if its producing 120-130dB and I have speakers thet only produce 80-85dB you're talkin some serious over powering. That sub I mentioned above will prolly rock a normal sized living (eg; 16' x 12' x 7' to about 20' x 15' x 9') Any room more then that just make a second one and be happy.

You know the saying just because you can, doesn't always mean you should do something..

I just got my sixth pair of Polk LS50! My first in the uncommon Rosewood finish! I've lost my mind! She's going to castrate me!

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I just recently picked up a pair of RT3000P's and a CS1000P. In the manual it say you can run a "Line In" to the sub amp from a pre-out of your processor and a "High Level" from your processor to the mids-highs. My question is, has anyone done this (pre outs from Left and Right channels and high level for mids-tweets) and is there any benefit in sound by using this method? I have a Denon 3803 so I have the capability to do this but before buying more sub cables I wanted to see if it would be worth it. Thanks.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

Those polk LSi's are very attractive! Nice.

If you don't have a BFD for your sub, get one fast!
If you don't have REW, get it now!

Thanks Mike. I am an active member over at the Polk Forum (Midnite Mick) and am curious to here some of the older Polk's. Would like to know the what the old SDA's sound like. I have a feeling they would be right in my wheelhouse in regards to my preferences. I love a big 3 dimensional sound and if they sound open as well........well .

Mike

I'll bite, I have a pair of Polks SRS SDA2's dating to circa 1985.... They have been retired from my 2nd system and are now on duty as fronts in a 5.1 system at a second home I own with my brothers. They still sound quite good, but always needed a little "junk in the trunk"...we gave it to them with a little bit of help from a "semi-retired" Hsu 10v sub. Very non-fatiguing sound and ability to play quite loud, but just a bit of a veil in the upper midrange relative to newer, far more expensive boxes. Couldn't bear to part with them.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

Yes, yes!

I have two 5.1 home theater setups with mostly Polks!

The living-room setup consists of:
Mains: RTi100's
Center: CSi30
Rear: RTi38's
Sub: HSU STF-2
Everything is powered by an Onkyo TX-SR702 Receiver, video and music comes from a Denon DVD-2910. A Samsung 56" DLP Set (HL-P5663) completes the setup.

The bedroom setup consists of:
Mains: R30's
Center: CS245i
Rear: R15's
Sub: PSW202

Everything is driven by an old and cheesy Pioneer receiver (VSX-D509S). Video comes from a Toshiba HD-A3! which drives a 42" Olevia LCD monitor (342i).

Sorry Sony! No Blu-Ray in my immediate future!
