Hello gang. I am a newbie to Polk but have fond memories of listening to them in the 1980's. I am in the end stages of cobbling my home theater together. My amplifier is a ADA PTM-8150 8 channel 150 wpc in 8 ohms and over 200 wpc with 4 ohm speaker loads. My preamplifier is a fosgate fap-v1 vacuum tube dolby prologic processor/preamplifier that does either 5.1, or 7.1. I will be running 5.1 due to smaller room size with front L-R, center channel speaker, rear L-R and a dedicated subwoofer. Right now I have jbl L300 for my front and L100T3 for my rear. My center channel is temporary but is close to the same efficiency as my front mains at 92dB Vs my 93dB L300. I am wodering how SDA- 2B for front L-R, RTA 12B for rear L-R, and a CS 350LS for my front center would compare with my JBL set up? I would be keeping my JBL PB-12 subwoofer to run right off my ADA amplifier bypassing the built in plate amplifier. Any comments on this as a possible set up for me for now? I am trying to determine if a vintage Polk HT speaker set up would be a step up from my current JBL speakers?
My main critical listening stereo is in another room and consists of 45, 300b, and el34 SET and PP mono block amplifiers. I use vacuum tube preamplifers also. That is about the best sounding set up I have ever heard with my 2-way 6' tall horn speakers. Thanks for reading this! John
