    I'm not sure why i bought the RTi12's to replace SDA speakers. That was a bad choice on my part.



    I mean there is really nothing wrong with the RTi12's, i was just down listening to them again.

    They will in fact shake my dropped ceiling..LOL if pushed. BUT..there not SDA's or my 1C's.

    I played them thru a few CD's..but i got to the point of..this is just not great. Put the 1c's back in play

    then things were good.

    I'm not sure what to sell the RTI 12's for...they cost me 800 +from polk there only a little over a year old and just have not been used that much. I'm down in GA nomans land for stereo..plus nobody has money for this stuff. But i figure $650 is about what i can let them go for.

    Not sure anybody would buy them down here..but i don't feel i can let them go for less.

    Just my stupid problem to pick them out, for speakers i knew i could not replace in the first place.

    Plus the fact..you can't run these speakers on some crap AVR..they will not work to well. You need a good size high current power amp to make them work.



    I may throw them on CL...see if anybody bite's..but $650 is firm...so don't hold to much hope on that..LOL

    If they sell..well i can put some of the money at the furnace..then maybe spend the other on tweeters...LOL

    if you want to sell you rti12s on CL. I think the realistic price is around 450. I bought mine for 400 and regularly see them for 450. sometimes A9s for 500 bucks too.

    but if you want to go big, why not hunt for the SRT system?

    I knew that was a good deal on yesterday's local craigs; a pair of rti12's and a 7.1 jvc ht receiver for $199. I might have to take a look and see if they're still there.

    The furnace is a really old gas unit. The burner box has just finally rusted to the point it has holes in it. Which is unfix-able and dangerous at this point. So the whole unit needs to be replaced.



    To sell the 12's for 400, just doesn't seem worth it. Just because i don't like them, as compared to the SDA's doesn't mean there bad speakers. Guess i'll end up moving them upstairs, let the wife use them for her music, or stick them on the TV.

    Is this to say that you would use the next higher impedance if the exact one was not available? That is use 4 ohm for 3 ohm nominal and 8 ohm for 6 and so on?

    The last series, the TL's, were made to make the the amp see as much of a 8 ohm load as possible, thus being easier to drive with out needing special lower impedance equipment. They were not true 8 ohm speakers in the sense of the word. All speakers exhibit an impedance curve just like they have high and low spots in there frequency response. But yes you go up not down use 4 for a 3 and 8 for a 6 but you use 6 for 6 if you have it of course.

    If you need a new furnace buy one online and install it yourself. Ingrams water and air is one company. The 2.3tl is the best in my opinion, the set in Colorado is a steal.

    LMAO..well i know where to get the cheap price for the furnace, and whatever else.



    Yes i could install it..if i was 40. Not like i don't know how to install it. But i'm 60 with a bad back.

    Which means if i pick up a case of 24 bottles of water the wrong way..my back goes out.

    The sad part of this is i just can't do what i used to...so i have to pay people to do it.



    Believe me..not what i want..and i know i could get this done for 1K easy....but not going to happen
