    I couldnt have sumed it up any better. Actually My plan is striaght forward. Going to get some rti6's for the fronts move my 4's to the rear and be DONE with it! I'm very pleased with my setup now!! When I started looking to upgrade my HT many many months ago piece by piece this is what i imagined it would end up and sound like all thanks to everyone here!

    Jerry post your opinion of the 6's and how much they fill the room better than the 4's. Assuming the speakers will be set to small with an 80hz crossover, i'm curious.

    I'll do that. BTW the HK has the automatic room calibration with the mic. It sets the crossovers and everything. Should i leave it how it sets it? To me it sounds good but should i see if it crosses over at 80hz and change it? What should all the speakers be set at?

    Everything should be set to small with the crossovers at 80hz. Of course, you can probably set it to 60, but that would put more strain on the receiver. Most would agree that it's best to let the sub take care of everything below 80hz. At least when it comes to bookshelf speakers.

    Jer_ry --

    Consider floorstanders -- Rti8's or 10's for the front instead of the 6's. It'll make for a much better HT experience for a little bit more money.

    There you go again! Maybe i will save up for another month and get 8's if it will make you happy Early B.

    Should the sub be at 80hz also? Thanks!!

    Yes, Jer_ry, that will make me very happy. :p

    To answer your other question, set the crossover in your receiver to 80 Hz and turn the crossover to max on the sub.
