    Default Use RTi28's as side surrounds, or FXi30's, in a 7.1 setup?

    Guys, I have some questions for you all regarding surround speakers for 7.1.

    I currently have in my theater, RTi70's, CSi40, FXi30's on the side walls as side surrounds, and am preparing to mount RTi28's on the rear wall as surround back speakers. I really like the way the RTi28's sound. I am pondering whether or not I should grab another set of 28's and put them in the place of the FXi30 sides. They would be aimed at each other, basically about 2 feet over my head. Get it?

    What real benefit does the FXi give? I have always been a smidgeon skeptical of the bipole/dipole thing, and they are certainly more expensive than the direct firing bookshelves. Somebody talk some sense into me!

    Hi Shawn! The FXi's will give you a more disperse sound vs the "direct" sound of the RTi28's. I'd stick with the FXi's for the sides. RTi's would be okay for rear. This would be my choice!

    Thats the exact same speaker setup I have. Keep the FX's on the sides and the 28's in the rear.
