View Full Version : 6.1 setup
06-22-2003, 11:39 AM
Just bought a yamaha 5590 and gonna add rti28 for the rear center info. I hate the fact that I have to buy two speakers when there is only one hookup on the reciever. My question is how would you hook two up to one output, or should you use just one speaker for the rear center. I'm running fxi30's for the surround sides and thought the rti28 best matched. Thank you in advance.

Check out the flea market area, I recall seeing 1 rt28 for sale. If that doesn't pan out you might want to consider using a CSi30 for your rear channel.

I believe you can wire them in parallel, we did this on my uncle's system and it works fine. Why don't you just buy a center channel?

Would imagine that a CSi30 is the best course of action here.
I employ a CS245i as the back surround in a 6.1 system with good results, and I didn't have to buy two of them.

with Yamaha using a centerchannel is Ideal.....The csi30 should do very well.

I'm trying out a dipole as my rear surround. Then in a month I'm going to try a regular center speaker and see which one I like better.

Thanks for all the advise. I ended up buying two rti28's and hooking them up together. the price of the rti28's would be the same as a csi30 so I figured two for the price of one.
