    Default Back surround speakers

    Looking for a good in-ceiling surround back speaker (s) to compliment my future setup (building HT in new home). My surrounds will be FXi3 or 5, my fronts are the RTi8 and center CSi3. I've got a PSW505 but want to sell to upgrade to a 20-39 PC plus. Any suggestions that won't break the bank? (I have to put in-ceiling because of room layout, and wife).

    I'm thinking of the RC60i or the RC80i. Anyone have experience with these speakers for surround back channels?

    Sorry, I haven't had any experience with any of the in-ceiling Polks -- yet. I did buy a pair of RC80i to put in my bedroom for a 2 channel setup just to listen to while lying in bed. I haven't had time to mess with them yet. I did take them out of the box just to look at the construction quality, etc. They seem well constructed.

    Sorry - my post count in not 25, hence I'm not permitted/allowed to respond to the classifieds. What was it about this speaker that makes you want to upgrade? Did you test the FXi3 before purchasing the FXi5?

    nothing wrong with the speakers sound great with my rti speakers. I work for a dealer now so I'm upgrading cause I get a discount.
