I have been looking at bookshelf speakers and like the Polk speakers I installed in my truck a year ago. I plan on setting up a basic 2.1 setup. What I am wondering is if it would be better to get the RTi A1 or A3. I am guessing the A3, but I figured I would check.
I found place about an hour away that is selling "new but unboxed" black A3's for 300 includes warranty. This seems like a pretty good deal to me, but was wondering how much the refurbished R3's typically are from Polk Direct Ebay store and how often if ever that they are listed, since neither the A1 or A3 are currently. I'm basically pretty new to speakers and am wondering if I should pick these up or wait and get refurbs. Going to look at them tomorrow with a more experience friend. I do prefer the cherry rather than the black ash which is why I'm wondering the price of the refurbs also buying refurbs might be smarter?
Thanks in advance and sorry if I was vague about anything. If you have questions just ask and I'll check.
Also what if the ones being sold near me were refurbs? Is there a way to check and is that a problem?
