    Default RTi12's or LSi15's

    Thinking about setting up another HT in my basement. I have the LSi 15's now hooked up in my current HT setup. I will probally buy another Parasound A51 amp and C2 controller. Now I would like to know if going from Rti10's right to the LSi15's I missed anything for HT sound. Not giveing the Rti12's a try, I love my 15's. But would you reccomend getting the 12's or another set of 15's. Would be used like current set up 50% HT 50% music. What are your thoughts ,THANKS. Oh and can the 15's really handle it if you turn them up.

    I have the 12s and love them. Since you already have the 15s, give the RTi's a shot and see if you like them better for HT. I know the 12s can take a beating just make you sure youre giving them at least 200wpc, and it seems like you plan to already. Best of both worlds there for sure.

    Why waste your money on another HT room? Just use the cash and upgrade what you allready have and make it better. To me it's a big waste of coin what you want to do, but I guess to each his own right?

    Am I wrong, I was under the impression the LSi series was an upgrade over the RTi series.

    Get the 12's, do something different.

    I picked up some 10's recently and absolutley LOVE them. Actually, it's fun to listen to the LSi9 / RTi10 side by side, with MSRP being $10 apart.

    Cheers,

    Default RTi12's or LSi15's

    Having listened to both, I would take the LSi15s any day of the week and twice on Sunday provided they are driven with proper amplification.
