Polk RtiA9s or Definitive Technology BP6s

Which would be better for 90% movies? Polk RtiA9s or Definitive Technology BP6s? My room is 11' x 22' x 8' and I have an SVS PB12-NSD for lows. I have an Acurus 250 watt amp btw.

Are these going to be your only 2 choices - if I may ask, how did you narrow
this down. What is the max budget?

Max budget is $800. I listen to 90% movies and 10% music. I found a good price on both the polks and the def techs.

Those are excellent choices for movies. The A9s won't disappoint. I'd sell you mine if you live near MS. I just upgraded this week and they need a new home.

You couldn't ship your A9s? If the price were right I would buy them! How many watts were you pushing to yours?

Emotiva xpa-3 @ 200 watts. I ran them full range ("large") and they never distorted at any volume level. I would take $800 for them but you'd have to pay the shipping, and that might be $expensive. What's your zip?

I favor the Definitive sonic-sound signature

I can get them for 800 shipped but thanks though. Was 200 watts enough to push those bad boys? And the matching Csi5 center channel is rated at 200 watts.... Is my 250 watt amp gonna blow the center?

That amp is a great match. Plenty for the a9s. High-pass the Csi5 at 80 hz and you'll be fine.
