This question may seem redundant to some but I am try to understand something. If you use a entry level AVR lets say a pioneer vsx1122, or a yammy v667. You have a sub, this will be a HT setup so you plan on using the recommended crossover point of 80hz. What would be the advantage in the A7 or A9 over the A5. Would not the 80hz crossover point negate and advantage the larger speakers would offer.
I fully understand the benefit if your running full range with an amp but strictly in these circumstances what benefit would you gain. I see people asking similar setup questions and I never understood why you would spend so much more on large speakers just to have them cut off where the differences, to me at least would show.
enlighten me fellow polkies
