    Default Would this be a good speaker setup for my theater room?

    Hey there folks, I just finished my HT room and I need some input on this speaker setup. My receiver is the Pioneer Elite Vsx-84. Here's what I thought of: Lsi 7 for fronts, Lsi c for center, Fxi-5 for side and rear (rears) and of course the Psw505 for sub. I use to have Rti's and the csi before but I want a serious upgrade. does anyone have these and if so how do you like them. My room is 90% movies.
    My choice I think comes down to the Polks and the NHT's (classic three's), I seem to be going back and forth on these two brands. Please help!!!!!!!!

    Thankyou

    Rainman, I have had a full RTi 7.1 setup in my theater room. I have a Pio VSX-82 (fantastic AVR BTW). I just got LSi15's, and LSiC, and four LC65i's for sides and rears. It sounds amazing. I do not have a separate amp yet, that will be coming before too long, since the LSi's are 4 ohm speakers and crave alot of power. If you do the LSi's, spring for 9's at least on the fronts, and you need to REALLY go for LSiFX's on the sides and maybe LSi7's on the rears. I am guessing you have the FXi5's already though. Sell those and go with LSi's on the sides and back.

    I am Idaho (just south of ya) and know someone here with two sets of brand new LSiFX's that they are looking to get rid of. If you are interested, let me know. I did not do LSiFX's due to room size constraints, and due to cost. Here are a couple pics of the new setup in my room:

    You should go LSi15's in the fronts, LSiC in the center, LSiFX for side surrounds, and probably should go with LSi7 for rear surrounds. As for sub I really dont know. My only personal experience is Velodyne and Elan. The Elan by the way hits really hard. I know some people probably haven't even heard the name. I guess I would probably suggest something from SVS probably. I guess any SVS would do really. They're all supposed to hit really hard. I'm kinda wanting to hear some feedback on the Def Tech Trinity Super Cube.

    As you can see from my sig, I have almost the same system and I think it sounds great. Some have suggested moving up the LSi chain, and while I agree with that advice in theory, finacially maybe it isn't as reasonable for you (I know it wasn't for me) I'm not familiar with the AVR, but a concern might be driving an LSi setup with it. I added an Adcom to take some pressure off of my AVR and it's been great. My AVR used to run VERY warm, but now it only gets slightly warm and that's only when I'm listening pretty loud.

    If you don't mind used, keep an eye on the flea market here and check out audiogon.com. You'll be able to stretch your dollars a bit farther. May as well see what Cursed1 has to offer...that could be your solution.

    Final note: Others may mention this, but check out SVS or HSU for a sub.

    Check out the sale by haimoc in the flea market. LSi 9's $550, LSiC $450 SVS 25-31PCi $350

    Good Luck with whatever you decide.

    LSI9's up front, and an SVS sub. The LSI15's need more juice than the 9's
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
    Ben
