Are these going to be your only 2 choices - if I may ask, how did you narrowWhich 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.
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?You couldn't ship your A9s? If the price were right I would buy them! How many watts were you pushing to yours?
