    Default RTia3 Question

    My current set-up is RTi4s as fronts, CSi3 center, PSW505 sub, whatever the dude who built the house put in the ceiling for the rear channels and a Denon AVR-1913.

    I'm getting a new TV so I was thinking about moving the RTi4s and center to another room with the old TV and upgrading to RTia3s and a CSia4 center in my primary television viewing and music listening area.

    My concern is that the bookshelf in which the fronts will be placed is only 15" deep. I read somewhere that the RTia3s sound a bit off if there isn't some space between the speaker and wall. With the RTi4s I only have a few inches of space between the speaker and the wall but I've always been very happy with the sound. I don't want to upgrade the speakers and downgrade the sound. Any risk of that or, even if the set up is not ideal, would it still be an improvement?

    If I don't upgrade the speakers I'll probably just pick up the TSi100s and CS10 center for the old TV and save a few hundred bucks. Thanks.

    I'm using the A3's for my rear surrounds, and the mounting plate for them is flush with the power port at the bottom of the speaker so I don't know if they require a lot of space behinf them. I have never played with this though.
