Has anyone else found that the SDA's are not always the best option for HT front mains? I have a set of SRS's at my house and a set of SDA 2's at my apt. that are part of an HT set up. I thought the SDA 2's were great in the HT setup, until I found a set of slightly used RTi70's at a garage sale for an incredible price and brought them home. I know the SDA's are finicky on placement, but I have had both the SDA 2's and the SRS's since they were new, and know about how to place them in a room. When I switched back and forth from the RTi70's to the SDA 2's, the SDA's always seemed overpowering, while the RTi70's seem to blend in and not really stand out, but compliment the rest of the system. The rest of the system is:
Yamaha HTR5660 - driving the all speakers except the SDA's
Yamaha AX-900U - used to power the SDA 2's
Polk CSi40 - front center
Polk RTi38 - rear surround
Polk CSi30 - rear surround
When listening to music, there is no comparison, the SDA's blow the RTi70's away!
