Folks, I have already purchased a pair of cherry RTi70s for the fronts, and a pair of cherry RTi38s which will be mounted on 36" stands for the rears. For now, this is an [audio] only setup.
These speakers are going to be powered with my old 2 channel Pioneer Spec 1 pre-amp and Spec 4 power-amp (150w/channel)
I think this will be a nice sounding setup as is.
But .... I also purchased a Rava powered subwoofer.
I have heard that with this setup, if used for audio only, that the sub is not really needed.
I was just wondering if I made a mistake buying the Rava. Or, will it maybe compliment the 4 Polk speakers and maybe make the system sound a little better (under normal listening levels). I can't set this system up right now since the new speakers are in Phoenix, and I am still in Alabama for 5 more weeks.
P.S. Some folks have said, I really only need the 2 front speakers, but, from listening to it before (with different speakers), I liked the sound with the 4 speakers hooked up better. It just sounded more "spacious" to my un-trained ears than just 2 fronts.
