    Default RT55 vs RT55i

    I am seriously downsizing in speakers. Going from RT55 to M10s.

    I simply can no longer justify the large speakers with the few times we ever get to use them properly. Had child about 3 months after I bought them three years ago and we just had another 2 weeks ago. They need to go.

    Anyone know what the difference is between the RT55 and the RT55i?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I believe they are the same speaker (RT55 should be RT55i). :)

    Wrong. They are different...subtle differences...but different. The tweeters on the two models are slightly different. The crossover on the "i" was tweeked a little. The driver material was upgraded/changed to blue from black, and the "i" had real wood veneer and more color options. However they should be pretty compatable sound wise.

    Thanks for setting things straight! ;)
