View Full Version : Speaker compatibility with SDA-2B's?
11-26-2002, 05:48 PM
I am thinking about upgrading to a 5 speaker home theater surround. I would like to keep my two front speakers if possible. They are Floor standing Polk SRS SDA-2's. I would need a Center channel, and the two rear speakers. Can I get them to be "compatible" or system matched for sound with my current speakers, or do I really need to purchase a whole new set?
Any replies would be helpful
Go LSi - I found the mating to be quite beautiful...giving the right placement..
But with this type of set up, man, your gunna have to go seperates or one hell of a capable reciever.

I am going very high end on the amp - 300 watts X 5 channels into 8 ohms, 600 watts X 5 channels into 4 ohms. I realize that my SDA-2's are 6 ohms. Are the LSi's at a different ohm rating, and is that a concern?

I bought SDA2's a few months ago and was using them
as my fronts. I put together a HT setup and bought
SDA1'C-s as my new fronts, moved the 2's to the rears,
bought a CS400i center channel and a psw450 sub.
I'm very happy with this setup!! If you could find a pair
of 1-C's or another pair of 2's, go for it. I think the cs400i
is a good match. There is another center channel that is
supposed to match up well with the sda's, I think it is
def tech or something. Someone here will know. SDA's
make great ht speakers IMO. The new dts Lord of the
RIngs rocks my house!

I agree...the SDA's are a good HT speaker. I have a CS400 center that matches well with my SDA-2Bs. I also have a pair of rt1000i's for the rears. I have a PSW350 for the sub. I like it a lot. I have also heard the fx500's are a good match for surrounds with these speakers
Curious... what amp do you have? And how much did you pay?
The LSi's are 4 ohm, and known to occasionally dip into the 2 ohm range. I see no problem in driving both, your amp sounds more then capable. The only concern would be, the SDA's would over-power the LSi's. Positioning would be key..
