I recently redo my basement and started setting up my third system.
My experience with Polk started 5 years ago, with monitor 70 then jump to LSI15. my second system is Energy RC-70 with Velodyne miniVee10) . However, I always have the RTi series in mind, so when I have the extra space done, I just move on to my dream.
Originally I wanted the RTiA9, well, guys always think bigger the better, however the ceiling for the space (also noted in the attachment layout) is only 7'4", so it will overwhelm the space. Thought about RTiA 5, but I am 70% music 20% movie (50% cartoon time for my boy in this merely 20%), meaning most of time I am using 3.0 or 2.0 system without sub. (I do have a Pinnacle babyboomer in this system), these are all being driven by Pioneer SC-1522-k (yes, the Costco deal).
I audit the CSiA6 and A4 a couple years ago in a acoustic room, which as I remember is 30X30 and 14' height, in that kind of space, the difference is more obvious. However, as the basement is must smaller with lots of corner, and I hasn't had much experience in setup in such a limited space. Please give your opinion of which center will be a better match to the system and the space.
Addition information: the A7s are about 9' apart from each other, with 1' plus to walls. the center will be 9'~10' to listening position.
thanks in advance.
