well I ordered the Rti4 and will probably get it within the week
(I cannot and did not demo any polk speaker)
I'll be using this on my PC
I have two connection options ...
option 1: running the Rti4 full range + sub (speakers connected via speaker level on "speaker A" subwoofer connected to "speaker b")
option 2: running the Rti4 with the sub's 80hz crossover (speaker level from amp to sub then sub to speaker)
which is better?
option 1: I lose bass management - letting the bookshelf roll off by itself
option 2: isnt the high pass crossover of 80hz a bit high? (wish it was variable just like the low pass crossover)
will be using the Velodyne DLS5000R btw.
on a side note: I am having a little buyer's remorse, I considered the rti4 and the monitor 40. my target was low end extension. I searched the forum but mostly found arguments between other members and some guy saying the monitor series was better than the rti series. does the monitor 40 really have more extension with the dual drivers and a bigger enclosure?
on a 2nd side note: I registered using the name "mike c" but my hotmail account folded up and I couldnt post nor PM anybody so here I am with this weird login name.
