    Default rtia5 or rtia7..

    hey brother which one is good rtia5 or rtia7 ,someone told me that rtia5 has two midrange drivers so midrange is good than rtia7 is it correct

    i have two hsu uls15 15 inch subs so bass is no problem for me so which one to go i think the two 7inch drivers in rtia7 are waste for me coz of two uls 15 right

    though i can get rtia7 as the same price of rtia5

    so please help..

    I'd go for the 7's if you have an amp that will drive them properly.

    If you're primarily running HT, the 5s will be fine. The TSis will be ok for surrounds, but I'd recommend also picking up a CSiA6 for your center, no matter which RTiA model you get.
    Those are supposed to be some fantastic subs - like 'em?

    The general consensus around here is that the 5's sound a little better with a good sub then the 7's. I had this same decision and went with the 5's. I love them. Since you have some great subs the 5's would be great.

    I do find that I am wondering what the 7's sound like and am tempted to upgrade. I need to get a good sub firth though. You cant go wrong with either one.
    Front - RTiA5's
    Rear - RTiA3's
    Center - CSiA4
    Sub - PSW110

    If mostly for HT and using a sub, A5 is actually better. Better mid-range

    hey brothers first of all thanks for ur replies :)

    so the thing is i'm using my ht mostly for movies and playing ps3 and i don't have an amp only onkyo 807 avr
    yaa i definetly buy csia6 centre channel so i have two hsu uls 15 so u guys says a5 is ok for me and what about tsi 200 surrounds actuall i like to buy rtia3 but just hold on if tsi 200 is fine for surrounds then i don't put money for surrounds
    so a5 has better midrange than a7 right ..what will the difference i'll hear with a5 coz i have tsi500 but to be very honest they are harsh speakers ..
    so what u guys say ....coz bass is no problem for me coz they go down to 10hz in my room

    and for surrounds what about fxia6 bipole/dipole and what is bipole and dipole i can get fxia6 and rtia3 for same price so stick with tsi 200 or what...\\

    or go for klipsch rf62,rc52 and rs52 i can get them as same price for 5.0 of rti series?reallyyyy confuse help me bros.

    If you like what ya got, I'd probably stick with the TSis for surrounds -- or at least try them out for a while to see if anything is lacking.

    If you got some money to spend, wanna make the system look flush, and have your surrounds voice and timber matched I'd probably shoot for a good deal on the RTi A3s. FX's look awesome and would probably make for better surround effects -- because that's simply what they're made for. Good luck!

    manu, how you like the 807, i have the 808 connected to a5's. i also have a hsu 2/3 sub. for HT it's perfect, but i dabble w/ music a bit, and i don't have the hsu on 24/7, as it burns 11watts on idle, thus i do slightly wish the a5's had their own sub drivers for 2 channel listening, it's not terrible but not the way to go for critical listening w/o the sub on, but often times i'm lazy to turn the sub on, so when I play on the ps3 i leave the sub off.
