Question for the forum: Whose running LSi 15's as surrounds over say the 9's or 7's, and do you notice any differences in sound due to the difference in height? I am debating purchasing another set of the 15's before they are totally gone and running 5 LSi 15's + LSiC as my setup.
I figure I see the 7's and 9's come up here all the time for sale and shipping on them isnt too bad, whereas the 15's are shipping prohibitive based on the cost, and the likelihood of being broken upon arrival is much greater. Also add the Polk ebay site has free shipping and they are ~50% off right now and that just makes a bit more sense. While I want to mod the x-overs I can do that anytime since those parts aren't really going to disappear, they just might cost a little more .
I also thought that since I am in an apartment and have a not too good sub (PSW125), adding full range surrounds would help even out the lower end of things (80-50hz) and fix any nulls in those frequencies and then let the bass handle the bottom end of things.
I know surrounds are "ideally" meant to be mounted 2-3 feet above the listeners ears when seated, but curious for you guys running floorstanders if you have noticed the difference. I could always build a little stand to raise them 6 inches or so (WAF factor allowing), but was curious.
More than likely I would run them at either full range or something in the 60hz for the crossover since they are rated to go to 22hz.
Looking at you DarqueKnight, and NooshinJohn since you guys run/ran them as surrounds. I believe BlueFox might have done the same as well.
