    Default what should i go with RTI A3 OR RTI A5 or tl350

    im new on here and have owned polk for a long time and im wanting to update my rm5400 that said. i like the look of the rtia5 but not sure if they are overkill for my room and my needs. the room is 16x25. should i just go with the rtia3
    or will the blackstone tl350 do just fine.

    IMO go with the a5's. Better yet the a7's if you can afford them.

    If its to replace your current setup, The TL350 would probably be a noticable upgrade. This is assuming you have a sub already. If you were buying 5 A5's then I would go that route :p

    What are you powering them with and what is your total budget? This will help us recommend a good setup for your needs.

    I would run RTI a5's. Think of them as a better bookshelf speaker with a built in speaker stand.

    That's a very good start, just run them and decide what your weakest link is and upgrade accordingly.

    I've got RT3000P fronts right now in a 14x12 room and love every bit of it. I only have one of the powered subs going right now and can't wait to get the other one back in order. Between those options, I'd be looking at RTi towers in that size room.
