    Default Help for a beginner

    I just bought the CS10 Center channel speaker and i'm replacing my 7 yr old sony surround sound in a box. I was wondering what the next best item to buy would be. Should I replace my front speakers or rear next, if so should I stick with the same TSi series. Also do the front and rear speakers need to be the same or could I get the TSi200 for the front and the TSi100 for the rear. I mostly use the speakers for 65% movies and tv and 35% listening to music. Any help would be appreciated.





    Thanks

    First and foremost, welcome to Club Polk.

    Your next 2 purchases should be the front speakers and a new AVR.
    Most Sony HTIB systems have funky impedance requirements and are grossly underpowered.
    Your front 3 are the most important of the speakers as the vast majority of the sound is coming from there and the dialogue mostly from the center.
    You are definitely OK going with the 200s for the front and 100s for surrounds.

    In this order, you should upgrade:
    1.Fronts *AND* AVR
    2. Subwoofer (the Sony system's subwoofers are usually quite lacking...a quality sub will make a huge difference in impact from movies.)
    3. Surrounds.

    I may have an addiction... RTA-15TL, SDA 2, LSi25, LSi15, LSi9, LSi7, LSiCx2, LSiFX, LS/FX, RT/FX, DSW MP2000...and that's just the Polks...
