    Default tsi100 or tsi200?

    Hey all. Need some advice here. I'm completing my h/t setup and I'm contemplating whether I should get the tsi100s for surrounds or get the tsi200s and move my current tsi100s to the rear. Has anyone heard the two side by side? I'm also watching my budget too. Here's my current setup:

    Tsi100 fronts
    Cs10 center
    Psw110 sub
    Sony str-dh520 receiver

    I know its not high end, but it sounds pretty darn good to me. Any advice would be a big help. Thanks:-)

    The tsi200 will have a slightly lower frequency response but with that sub in the mix you probably won't notice much difference between the two. The tsi200 look much better though imo.

    Get the TSi200's and move the 100's to the back. That extra driver along with the larger cabinet will help produce a more effortless sound. If you can swing the extra coin, the 300 will work even better. Good luck!

    Ya I was thinking that too bout not hearing much of a difference because of the sub. I'm thinking that my setup would sound louder cuz of the power rating of the 100s (100 watts) as my reciever is 100watts/channel...what do you think?

    I just found some monitor40s on Craigslist for 150. I prob could talk them down some. They appear to be in great condition. How would these compare to the tsi200s? Would these blend well with my current setup? I know the monitor40s are from an older series of Polk, but they seem to have similar drivers to the tsi200. How do they differ? Please let me know. Thanks a mil :-)

    Pretty much the same speaker. The differences are cosmetic. I say get them.
