I just picked up some LSI 25's last week and I'm on the fence whether I like them or not. They are not brand new I purchased them used but they are in pretty decent shape. Right now I have them powered by a Marantz 7400 that will sometimes go into protection mode because it isn't really rated for 4 ohms.
I think the LSI's sound pretty good but to me they are missing some mid bass or something... The subs are hooked up through the LFE jack and I've turn the XO knob all the way to the right and I have the XO at 80 Hz on the receiver.
I'm coming from a pair of 1970's Pioneer HPM 100's that had modded crossovers. They would shake the house but were a little bright. The polks seem a little more laid back but not really as loud.
Will the LSI's come alive once I get a decent amp to drive them? I mainly do 2 channel music but occasionally will use them for movies. Will the Emotiva UPA-2 be enough or is the XPA-3 what I need to be looking at? I'd like to stay under $500 for the amp.
Thanks for all your help!
