Hi all -- new to this forum and new to Polk.
Currently, I have the Atlantic Technology System 170 HT setup , which consists of 4 identical bookshelve speakers with twin 4" drivers and a 1" tweeter, and a Center channel that is identical to the other speakers, except it's on it's side, plus a 12" 150 Watt Sub, all powered by my Yamaha RX-V1400 Receiver.. the sound is GREAT for Pop Music, and some HT applications, but not so for movies such as Star Wars, or for music that is alternative or rock... there is just something missing from the mid bass area.
Anyways, I found a great deal at onecall.com for the Velodyne Deco system (5 identical 4" satellites, plus a 650w 8" sub) and I'm still not satisfied with the sound... which brings me, in a long-winded way, to my question:
How would a setup of two pairs of Rti4 speakers, plus the CSi 3 center, with my Atlantic Tech 12" sub compare to the above two systems? Could my sub be the issue (it's sealed) or will the larger Rti4s give me the mids that I am looking for?
I will be using the setup 50/50 music and HT, and I listen to basically every kind of music from classical, to hard rock, to pop, to r&b to alternative, to techno.... setup is in my family room, and the Rti4s are the biggest I can go while still being able to hang them from the walls and not make my wife mad....the family room is roughly 14'x24' with a vaulted ceiling that goes from about 20' to 8 feet at the rear of the room.. openings all over the place (into the kitchen, into the upstairs loft, etc.)
Thanks in advance for any and all responses,
