    It would be very interesting to read your comparison review if you did have both pair.
    I find pairs new on ebay for $2700 so they are not as expensive as the 1.2tls were back in 1990
    and then again the reason I have what I do have is because no one makes SDA anymore.

    I've never heard the LSi25's, I've heard the LSi15's and I wasn't impressed. I've heard the 707's twice and I was very Impressed.

    If Polk came to my house tonight and said I'll give you a pair of LSi25's for a pair of your 1.2tl's I'd tell them to leave.

    If they said they have a pair of 707's I'd help them load the 1.2tl's into their truck.

    If I only owned one pair of 1.2tl's then I wouldn't make the trade. I had the 1.2TL's in a 5.1 surround system and they sounded amazing.

    I wish that Polkaudio made much better subwoofers.
    Maybe after they have more Research & Development Money from selling LSiMs in the near future.

    Finally, I just ordered a pair of Cherry LSi25s from Amazon.com fro $1,300.
    I will post a picture when all are set and calibrated, and check if I notice any difference.
    Thanks all for the feedbacks, again.
    I will definitely upgrade to 7.2 LSiM System when the prices fall down in 5-10 years.

    Excited for ya! Please post pics when you can. Would love to see what I missed out on since I was going to order them before being talked into LSiMs. :)

    Let's see here....

    LSi9
    Total Frequency Response- 38Hz - 27kHz
    Upper -3dB Limit - 26 kHz
    Lower -3dB Limit - 50 Hz


    LSi25
    Total Frequency Response- 20Hz - 27kHz
    Upper -3dB Limit - 26 kHz
    Lower -3dB Limit - 30 Hz


    The OP stated 80% theater 20% music, and from previous posts has two 15" subs, a ton of power, and room treatments, and what sounds like an already awesome HT system.

    ...and he just dropped $1300 on the LSi25's. Which is cool as this is a set that many of us wanted for years...

    But, I think this was an "I always wanted" purchase. IMO, I don't get the LSi25 upgrade? The LSi25 is the LS9 sitting on top of a sub. The OP already has two 15" subs!

    Maybe its just me but, given the mostly HT use, if this were my system, I would have picked up the LSiM706 Center for the sake of the added clarity that we all have read about and/or heard with the LSiM line with the added dedicated 3-1/2" midrange. Then sell off the LSi LCR mains and get the LSiM703 L R mains. Then, at a later date sell the LSI surrounds then get the LSiM surrounds.

    Nevertheless, enjoy the 25's!

    ...just one poor mans $0.10...

    Nice comparisons between the LSi 25s and the LSi 9s.
    Also, the LSi 25s are:
    Driver 1: HPF at 80Hz 12dB/oct, LPF at 800Hz 12dB/oct.
    Driver 2: HPF at 80Hz 12dB/oct, LPF at 2.4kHz 12dB/oct.
    Tweeter: HPF at 2.4kHz 18dB/oct.

    Whereas the LSi 9s are:
    Driver 1: LPF at 200Hz 12dB/oct.
    Driver 2: LPF at 2.4kHz 12dB/oct.
    Tweeter: HPF at 2.4kHz 18dB/oct.

    Which means that if you use your pre-amp/receiver to set the HPF to 80 Hz for your LSi 9 Drivers, the only difference for the Drivers between the LSi 25s and the LSi 9s would be from the Driver 1. The LSi 9 producing between the 80 Hz and the 200 Hz, and the LSi 25 producing between the 80 Hz and the 800 Hz. And the 80 Hz and belows from your dedicated Subwoofers. In LSi 25s' case, some more bass from their own subwoofers, which I do not really think will be great, considering that it is a "Polkaudio-Quality" Bass.
    Still, the mid-range, at least between the 200 Hz and the 800 Hz range, should be slightly better with the LSi 25s. I do not know whether that was worth spending $2,000 more in the past when the LSi 25s were $3,000/pair and the LSi 9s $1,000/pair, but now that it is about $500/pair more, LSi 9's $800/pair vs LSi25's $1,300/pair, one might consider getting the LSi 25s instead of the LSi 9s, and get a subwoofer with the LSi 25s as well. My 2 cents.

    IN the end regardless towers look better as fronts and considering that they weight in at like 100lbs each and you can forget the stands he will be very happy! All that extra weight will make them sound better once broken in.

    I don't see why this is up for debate. He is getting speakers that he has always wanted at a price that he can and is willing to pay. I'm sure all of us would like the latest and greatest but the wallet won't allow it.

    He's not settling for something, he's getting what he has always wanted. Enjoy them!

    Thanks.
    If overall sound improvement is your goal, the only logical step up for you in speakers from Polk is the LSIM series. That or invest some coin in upgrading your gear and cables.

    That said, many other speaker makers out there too that can offer a jump in SQ. Not taking anything away from Polk either, they do a fantastic job in the SQ area.

    Exactly! In case he/she has a baby issue too, there will be no issue of the baby toppling or knocking down the 100 lbs Floorstanding ones, as supposed to the speaker stands, which was in my case for getting the floorstanding speakers.

    Yes I agree. I am sure that he/she is getting the LSi 25s for the sake of finally having them, with the price that had gone down tremendously!

    True Indeed! One can buy what they want and not post on forums....but be all know that once you post things on forums there will be before and after comments and debates. This conversation could go on about the OP's original question of "what difference they would make in an overall sound quality, should I stick with my current setup then?" I think a discussion of the 2-way MTM LSiC vs. the 3-way LSIM706C could come up...as if it has not already. Still, even though the OP might have the 25's arriving at his door this week I still think selling his LSi9's & LSiC for $500 and combine that with $1376.66 he could have purchased a set of the LSiM703's and the LSiM706c on ebay (or $1744.86 Polk Audio Direct) for about the same out of pocket cost and would better address his original "overall SQ" question.

    .....But, I've seen this a million times before. Folks ask questions but there mind is already made up. You only live once....if there is a set that one has always wanted to try and you have the means, then go for it! Some, change out speakers every ten years and some change speakers with the seasons! Enjoy the sound!

    The 703s were on sale $500 each about a month or so ago at Polk Direct.. I missed the sale by like a week and asked for the same price but they couldn't do it. They met me half way though at $573.70+ tax EA.

    That was a nice possible alternative, as I can change what most matters in the Home Theatre System setup, the Fronts and the Center, which constitue about 85% of the audio informations being played, as supposed to the 15% coming off of both Side and Rear Surround sounds combined. Whether the LSiMs and LSis are timbre matched or not and the fact that they are of different resistance, 8 ohms vs. 4 ohms, would not have mattered much either. Thanks for sharing a nice feasible alternative though, it really could have been a nice option. Someone else who are in similar situation as I was should seriously consider your approach, I recommend too.
    As Be83663 has mentioned, I do want to get a Floorstanding ones from the current Bookshelf models, because of my daughter who is approaching her first birthday. So soon she will begin taking things down. That was one big reason that I wanted to change to the heavy-duty floorstanding ones, >90 lbs each. LSiM 707s would have been nice, but too expensive, as you know.

    garnier, congrats on the new speakers, I'm sure you'll enjoy them. The LSi and LSiM are not timbre matched, but they are voiced similarly enough that it wouldn't have been too much of a stretch to be mismatched. I have a soon-to-be 3 year old and not once has he touched anything in my system. We instilled in him early that it was not acceptable for him to touch anything in the front of the room and I've had zero issues. I have the benefit of having my setup in a bedroom though, so YMMV.

    Not sure if I'm the only one doing this, but I'm using a 703 for a center with LSi7s fronts. I have no issue with how these function together for theater or 3-channel music. The sound is cohesive to my ears and I prefer the 703 to the LSiC.

    That's good to know, because the Center can carry upto 70% of informations at times, including the most of the dialogues.
    If that's the case, I will consider upgrading from the LSiC first to the LSiM line center speaker down the road, preferrably to the LSiM 706C. That would be a great idea, even though not anytime soon!!!

    Just got a pair of LSi 25s to replace my LSi 9s and finished a calibration.
    After having wathced the Avanger in its 7.1 Soundtrack on a Bluray, I can say that they sound really nice, but cannot really say that there is a noticeable difference between now and when the front pair was the LSi 9s.
    I just felt that they seem to have provided more bass and coherent mid-range than my previous setup, but it could as well be a placebo effect of having spent an extra $1,300 (soon-to-be an extra $700, after I sell my LSi 9s and their speaker stands).

    Couple of Pictures of my current System though.

    Thanks for the feedbacks!

    Damn those towers look awesome! Nice dark cherry shade of cherry there better then I hoped for when I thought about ordering them! Sure makes a bigger statement in that setup over just some bookshelf speakers up front!

    Remember that they will improve after some break in time. :)

    garnier, what kind of a receiver are you using on the bottom most rack of your TV stand, because it looks like a Marantz brand?

    Thanks for saying that. I do like the look of it for sure, compared to the Bookshelf LSi9s, just because they are bigger at about 90 lbs each. I will wait and see how they really sound after the break-in periods, as you have mentioned then.

    Yes, I recently also bought the Marantz AV8801, which I really like, by the way. It just turned my Home Theatre System up-side-down. I did not expect a pre-amp/processor to do such a job of changing the whole dynamic of the setup and improving the overall sound quality TREMENDOUSLY!!! It was a day and night difference, after I upgraded from the earlier Marantz AV7005 to this one.

    I see. I have the exact same pre-amp, the Marantz AV8801. It is just amazing how it changed my system's Sound Quality as well! I got it because of its Audyssey XT32 function, which calibrates your surrounding 32 times more than the XT version; and it is just speechless. It transformed all the sounds, whether from the Movies or Musics, to sound so NATURAL and REAL!!! Did I mention the sounds coming out of my speakers are so NATURAL and REAL?

    I never heard the LSMs, but we had Magnepans and Acoustats once. Having said that, the best speakers I ever heard was a pair of Polk Lsi25s powered by a Denon 7 channel receiver. They were in Fry's audio room, which is about 35 x 65 feet, and I was left alone to listen to them with my own Nina Simone CD. No one bothered me for an hour. I wanted to buy them, but I'm too old and I didn't want another 100-pound speaker (we also have SRS 3.1 TL at home).
    I bought a pair of Lsi15s instead, a mistake.
    The Lsi25 with its own amplifier was great paired with the Denon. The Lsi15 with an Onkyo receiver is not that impressive. I hope that once I can afford a real amplifier it would be better.
    We also have 4 Lsi9s at home, and they are fantastic with a Nad 50 watts and a Yamaha 100 watts receiver. The SRS 3.1 is also great with a 100 watt receiver. Unfortunately for me, the Lsi15 is a more demanding speaker.
    I think the Lsi25 is the best speaker even for someone who doesn't (yet) own a powerful amplifier. I deeply regret not getting them, the $ 300 price difference is peanuts.

    It makes a BIG difference hearing things for yourself....now you can be content and/or move forward. I hope they work out well for you.

    Since OP has made the purchse, this update may not add any more value. Just in case anyone is interested in the difference between Lsi9 and 25, since I own both, I have made a sound recording and comparison in the past.
    Recordings you can download from my pogoplug: http://ppl.ug/bsuWzWoz7a0/
    Comparision: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...=1#post1866850

    In short, in terms of clean and clear, Lsi25 is way better than Lsi9. Modded LSi9 is way better than stock Lsi9.
    I've not seriously compared modded Lsi9 with stock Lsi25 because I only use Lsi9 as rear surround so it's not that critical. But I can say that unless you also modded the 260uF and the 9mH inductor on the Lsi9 lower driver, there is no way that Lsi9 can compare with Lsi25 at mid low to low frequency range.

    I can't comment on Lsi15 or if additional subs are mixed into the picture because I don't have them. Because OP already have additional subs, I'd still say that Lsi25 + subs is still better than Lsi9 plus subs due to the mid to high freq performance.

    This was just my spaculation when deciding to upgrade to the LSi25s, a better mid-range sound with the LSi25s than the LSi9s. But, Thanks for supporting my guess.
    I am very satisfied with my current change and the new set-up, as well as the asthetic aspect of the LSi25s.
    Sure, the new LSiMs will sound better, but I will wait another 8-10 years before the LSiM 7.2 Home Theatre System, if I pay off my student loans and mortages by that time......
