    Default 2 question

    I have a RTi set up the old rti55 csi245 rti35. So here is the question im thinking of upgrading the whole system to LSI25, LsiC and LsiFx. I use the system for movies and tv with about 75-80% of them time. Is this the right setup? Also the LsiFx will be mounted off set by about 3 to 3 1/2 ft. Also i need to find a reciver that has hdmi 1080I atleast. What size of amp should i be looking at?

    Welcome to CP! For the amount of TV/movie usage, I would stay with the Rti lineup you have and upgrade the center to a larger CS350 or 400, and increase your power to them. They are great speakers for HT.

    If music was 80% of your usage, I might consider the LSi line as well as other brands to get a higher level of musical accuracy. The LSi investment also has the downside of requiring a higher level of power than the average receiver.

    On your switching comment, I run directly from source into TV/projector bypassing the receiver if I can for a cleaner signal.

    Default Reason for upgrade

    The reason i was thinking of up grading was i was going to move the RTI to another room and place the LSI in main TV room. My other reason was that im wanting to move to bipole speaker set in the rear any thoughts on that?

    I'm cool with trying to upgrade anytime you can. The LSi line deserves real power from separate amps if you can swing it, 150-200wpc works great. You should really demo the 15s and 25s if you can. Alot of issues with both speakers getting them to work inroom...........the 15s have side firing woofers and the 25s have separate amped subs. Both cause their own setup issues. Worth the effort to have return policies from your dealer if needed.

    The bi/dipole speakers are great for a diffuse surround sound. Very seamless and enveloping.
