Hello!

So i came upon a pretty large sale for Polk Audio RTIA9's, $400 cad each, and bought two. However the website checkout made an error and ended up purchasing 4, and i didn't notice till they were on my door step.

I am looking into surround speakers as well, specifically the Polk Audio FxiA series, however i noticed that even with (current) sales, those smaller speakers cost more than the RTIA9's.

My question is , should i just keep them and use them as surround rears? Or possibly surround sides, and stick with the FxiA series for surround rears? Or just return them...

I am aware of the large power requirement, but aside from that?

what do you think?

Edit: I have a large basement, about 26ft by 30ft. Id say i watch movies, and listen to high fidelity music equally.

They will be overkill for surrounds, but if you position them far enough from the listeners you should be fine. What are you using for a center?

When I think about it I can't see how it would have a negative impact on my music, but I guess what I'm asking is would the speakers have a negative effect on surround sound for movies compared to the rtia4 or fxiA series , such as an improper frequency response or something.
