Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I'm running SDA 1Cs, CS400i and SDA-CRS+ w/ M5jrs back surrounds on my combo rig. They need a bit of horsepower to make them sing, but are incredible music and HT speakers. I'm also a big fan of the RTAs, early Monitors and LS series. I've auditioned the RTis and the new A series, RTs and LSis...pretty much every Polk speaker I've heard has something going for it.

The difference between the big boys, 1.2s and 2.3s, vs. the medium sized 1Cs is simply scale. In most rooms, the 1Cs are every bit as good.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I got in on the deal at Fry's and got set of LSI 15 that are my fronts. I wish I had gone ahead and gotten a LSI C because I can't find one anywhere now. I have one on order but it's now sounding like it will be the end of April before any are available. Then when budget allows I'll get a pair of LSIF/X.

I'm glad this thread was started here. Club Polk doesn't seem to offer that much info.

There are tons of LSi threads over the last 5 years regarding this line on CP. It's the most respected speaker of the current lineup with hundreds of member owners. What specifically is your question?

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

No specific question, mostly just comment. Unless you know where I can get a new LSI C under $400 and not have to wait until the end of April.

You might get lucky on ebay or craigslist, but if you join and participate over on Club Polk, you'll find that hookups happen all the time...not necessarily when you're looking for it. It's important to participate, just like here. If you just want to score, you'll get some grief. Asking questions will get you tons of answers.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I’m running Polk SRS SDA 2.3TL’s for my fronts, SDA 2B’s for the rears, and an M5jr for the center channel. I’m very impressed with most of Polk’s speakers (I own 7 pairs) but not with their subwoofers. Instead, I’m running an M&K MX-90 sub with dual 12” woofers in a push-pull configuration and a 300w amp.


The TL version of the SDA line has the updated tweeters that removed the harshness of the earlier line. My 2.3TL’s date 1991 and since, I’ve replaced all the drivers and completely rebuilt the crossovers with Soniccraft caps and mills resistors. I’ve also updated the 2B’s and M5jr’s with the new tweeter and rebuilt the crossovers accordingly.


The sound is very impressive! Just ask my neighbors…

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

FYI.....Many Lsi owners have not been happy with the LsiC to be honest. I had it before and felt like it was kind of flat, and veiled sounding. Many people prefer an Lsi 9 as a center channel. Something you may want to research a little more...maybe you can find a single somewhere, split with somebody, or go 6.1.

Regards,
Mike

I have the Lsi C and have been happy with it, although for me, if it's audible, it's good . I'll have to try and find an Lsi 9 and try that to see if I can notice a difference.
