Well thanks everybody for the help so far. Now that I have been swayed to buy the rti series I have seen them only available at crutchfield who I know from the past doesn't specialize in good prices. I hear a lot about used speakers and open box stuff but not too sure where to look. I was also wondering what the major differences are between the rti10's and 12's as far a home theater and good music. Is it as simple as more speakers more sound or more a volume thing when amplified? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
