    Question Fxi30/50 help

    alright. so i couldn't make up my mind and waited too long to purchase some surrounds. none of the circuit city's near me have any old Fxi's in stock.

    i'm looking for some help on acquiring some NEW fxi30's or 50's at a good price. i'm open to calling a non-local store that is willing to ship or even paying someone on here to buy them and ship them, assuming the price is right. anybody seen any for sale in the past couple days? give me a store name and location.

    the fry's near me has one set (displays) of fxi30's for 199. the price is reasonable but i'd much rather have a new set, call me anal but i want the box/warranty card/etc. i guess i might end up buying that pair (assuming it's still there) just in case i can't find a new set someplace else.

    my current system:
    RTi70's (mains)
    CSi40 (front center)
    CSi30 (rear center)
    R20's (surrounds)
    Onkyo TX-SR600

    thanks for the help!

    You will get the warr. with open box and if you really want them and they are the only ones left get them. if not call Crutchfield they might have some there 18005559507. Everything is getting rare and hard to find in most places.

    Good luck

    They're on ebay brand new for $215 plus $25 shipping. But I'd consider getting them at Crutchfield for $279. Get them while you still can.

    alright. so i'm buying a pair of surrounds this weekend. a pair of 30's for 200 or a pair of 50's for 300.

    are the 50's worth the extra 100 bucks? my system is used mainly for movies. my gut is telling me i won't notice the difference so i should get the 30's. but then again, this is the final piece of HT i'll be buying for hopefully quite a long time and part of me is saying just get the 50's for peace of mind. the next piece of equipment i'll buy will probably be a better receiver/amp and i'm somewhat concerned about overdriving the 30's.

    Well, the 50s give you 6.5" instead of a 5.25". That allows the lower -3db limit to be 50hz instead of 55hz. Not much difference there.

    Also, the 50s can handle 50w more... but I doubt you'll really blow out the 30s running 150w unless you hit distortion or are really playing it loud.

    Save the $100, go buy some cables :)

    Thumbs up FXi30

    I agree with Steve, save the money, get the FXi30's.

    ok, so it sounds like i should get the 30's. saving money is definitely a good thing.

    it seems like we have very similar setups kberg. maybe someday when i move out of an apartment and into a house i'll consider getting an SVS. as it is now my cheap sub and 70's rattle the floors enough :)
