Holy hell. So until about two months ago, I didn't even have rears for my HT because my apt. wasn't condusive. I get my house and a buddy sells me a set of RTi4's with 36" stands for $50 (gotta love friends!). Needless to say it was one helllll of a hookup. They worked and all was good but I noticed the rears were a lot more bright than the fronts and it just never was a complete match for me but again, they worked! So I'm sitting at work the other day and found a set of LSi9's in ebony brand new in the box in a clearance sale. Needless to say they were sold to another salesguy who's been dying for his set. So we get to talking about how he's gonna run them and he knows he shouldn't just run them off his 3806 and needs an amp. Well, he didn't want to wait 2-3 months to get an amp and holy hell... he let me have 'em. I'm not even going to post the price I paid for them because it's disgusting how cheap they went. Gotta love clearance sales! Anyhow, making a long story longer... I got them home, took my old 9's and moved them to the back and put the shiny new ones up front to break in. Got them all tweeked in and fired up a couple SACD's/DVDa's... dear god. THIS is what I've been missing. Finally got a beautiful sound from the front and rear. It's an absolute perfect match (duh) and....wow. If anyone has the chance to hear a full LSi setup done right, it's sonic bliss. There's no real point to this thread other than to let me say... LSi's are untouchable for their price. Dear god.
