    Default Center and Surrounds recommendation to match my RT3000p's

    I'm currently looking for a cs1000p and some f/x1000's to fill out the system, but this has been slow going. Curious if anyone has any input on other speakers that I might be able to get my hands on.

    Was looking at the RTi line-up - any thoughts on matching the RTiA6 and F/XiA6's with this?

    Receiver is a Denon AVR-3312CI.

    On the used market, you should be able to find a cs400 which is a match for that rt series. The cs350 is a nice center from the same basic era; there the 4 mids are 4.5", so they are not complete match.

    Thanks, 20hz - I searched around and at least found a FAQ on matching the center channel up:

    The only center I would consider besides the CS1000p is the CS400, it would blend nicely and is still a great center. The surrounds don't matter as much but the f/x 1000's are really nice, but almost any of the fix's would work for surround duty.

    I did the FX 300i's as room is a factor and I'm sure they'll do the job nicely.

    Thanks nwohlford/B Run. I'm curious then, you would recommend the CS400 over the CSiA6 then I'm assuming because of the timbre matching? I'm seeing some CS400i's are available, but none of the older non-i, which seem to have slightly different drivers.
