    Default If I mix differemt Polk speakers as part of a 7.1 theater, will there be a noticeable

    difference in sound quality?

    I am not an audiophile, but want high quality sound, even at low volumes... Mostly listening to tv and movies.

    LC65i as side surrounds

    LC265i-IP as front (most likely)

    LCi-RTS100 as rear surrounds

    Sub... To be determined... Possibly microPRO DSW 3000

    Center... To be determined

    Thank you.

    In general, no....but you should stay within the same line for the front 3 so you have a coherant front stage. Surrounds wouldn't matter as much. That said, you do realize those LCI surrounds are 4 ohm, right ? Plus your planning on a 7.1 system so most avr's will be taxed already. Make sure you get a receiver with preouts to add an amp. Or a very beefy receiver. You may want to just come down to all 8 ohm speakers if your doing 7.1, would be alot easier to drive for a midline receiver.
