    The new LSiM series does NOT require anything above and beyond the current 4ohm expectation of equipment needs.

    These are the quick spec's from the actual LSiM manual. I don't feel like copying them all down from the PDF so here's what matters.

    LSi707
    20hz-40khz
    38hz-30khz (-3db)
    20-300wpc
    88db Efficient

    LSi705
    22hz-40khz
    42hz-30khz (-3db)
    20-250wpc
    88db Efficient

    LSi703
    36hz-40khz
    50hz-30khz (-3db)
    20-200wpc
    88db Efficient

    vs.

    LSi25 (straight from the manual)
    20Hz-27KHz
    30Hz-26KHz
    20-300wpc
    88db Efficiency

    So, it appears that the newer LSiM has better HF extension over the older LS25 with only a drawback in the lower end 30Hz region.

    But anyone with the passion for the deep bass would have one or more subs in the chain so I think it doesn't matter if you are in the 2-ch or multi-channel environment.

    I still use the Lsi25 with the pair of PSW1000 for the lower end.
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    Russman has some signal sweep information from Lone Star, so perhaps he'll post it later.

    Yep that's right. Once we get moved and all situated I'm gonna be replacing my Klipsch computer setup with the TL3 setup.

    Maybe my expectations of a satellite speaker were just too low, but I was more surprised by the TL3 than any other speaker at the show. I'm not saying it was better, because well that's just dumb, but it shocked me mroe than any other speaker there. I went in expecting the new LSi and the Pi Speakers and the Quads and the electro-stats to all sound good, and for the most part they didn't dissapoint, but with the TL3 it's absurd how much sound you're getting for $300 for the pair.

    I would need to spend more time with them on my gear, but paired with a sub I THINK I actually preferred them over all the RT series models I've owned. I emphasize the word think because I was so shocked by the fact that they didn't sound like ass that I may have been too enamored to make a sound judgement on them.

    I'll know soon enough though. I tell you one thing, if Polk sold those in a Best Buy or a Fry's I'd have a pair sitting right here in front of me now because I wanted to buy them when I left the show on Saturday, but now that I have to order them I've had time to think and do the logical thing and wait until I move. So Polk if you're listening, damn you and thank you...all at once

    These hit closer to the 30hz mark than the LSi25 ever alluded to doing....and without a powered subwoofer.

    I'm not going to make any solid statements, but the frequency sweeps and tones were flat into the mid to low 20's, and they went subsonic after that. You do not need a subwoofer for music, under any circumstance, not even for the most obscene bass laden trance or hip hop. It pressurized the room if you wanted it to. That's why I actually wanted to run the 705's, as they would have been more suited to the size of the room - which is probably comparable to the avg size small living room.

    Home theater, especially with Blu-Ray, I'd probably hook up a Micropro 4000 just for the T-Rex effects.

    I'll ask the local Texas membership to post their thoughts again, in my large living room, properly setup this weekend. It should be a better 'real world' scenario to pass judgement on.

    Cheers,

    Well, I've already got a bunch typed up, and will have a formal review soon, as soon as I get them setup in house - everything is still in the garage in boxes from the show right now. It's more work than you think. They actually make me a little bit sad, chew on that until I post. ;)

    Russ - Are you going to get some print time from Stereomojo about these? Maybe send Marcmarc from the dead Affordable Audio a PM and see if you he's got a line with the place he merged with, HiFi Zine. I think Polk supported his efforts here thru Club Polk, you'd think there would be some get back for all that.

    I think Jake(Zingo) is an active writer or contributor....maybe drop him a line. He's a cool guy.

    James Darby and I are still very close, but because of my association with Polk, I'm going to post my review on a private blog. I am not currently doing reviews for Stereomojo at this time.

    Let's talk offline, and discuss.

    Russ is correct a demo disk with large variance and some deep digging tunes drove these real deep. Trust me they will most certainly drive any genre without needing a sub

    For those of you that can, save your money and wait for the release. These speakers are worthy of the praise they get from those who have heard them. For all you HT fanatics, you might even be able to live without a sub with these towers. Worst case scenario, you can have the sub cut off much, much lower than with any current Polk offerings and not miss a beat.

    These are not small speakers in the least. The 707's dwarfed the RT800i's that were directly behind them today to the point that the 800's looked like run of the mill HTIB speakers in comparison .
