    I run FXi3's as my side surrounds and FXi30's as my rear's. I have RTi10's as fronts and a CSi5. They sound great, but you have to play around with placement to get the best sound. Work great for HT. I also like them for music. My Onk 805 has an ALL setting so music can crank through all of them. They are not real power hungry, so you shouldn't have a problem. they give nice dispersion. just my 2 cents.

    I use Fxi3's for rears and like them a lot, read up on dipole/dipole settings for placement and you'll be good to go! Congrats.

    Frankly, I think you are doing a serious disservice to all of your speakers running them all on that AVR. The 75s are happy with oodles of power. And your avr's rating of 105wpc is with 1 channel driven. That more than likely drops to around 30-40wpc with all channels driven.

    Yes i do plan on upgrading my amp soon. Ive had my avr for a few years now. Was running some inexpensive speakers back then... Then found polk's and been hooked !! I purchased these speakers all in the past year. All for $1100. Piece by piece.
