    Lightbulb LC265i 's

    Has anyone installed the LC265i 's.

    Did you use the performance enclosure.

    Do you think they need a seperate sub for music listening.

    Hi Russell,

    Even though we exchanged some private messages on this subject, I thought I'd welcome you to Club Polk and bump your thread to try to stimulate others to respond to your question.

    As I mentioned, unless you have music tastes that require deep bass, the speaker's 43 hz lower -3 dB limit may be sufficient if average music is all you'll be listening to. If you're a big fan of organ music, well that's an other matter. ;)

    Like most speakers the LC265i's definately require a subwoofer for home theater, especially if you're an action movie fan.

    Well the first question is are both your front channels LC265i's or are you using it as a front speaker only?
    My main room has three LC265i's and I found that as long as you set your amp/recever to have full sound in the front (the lack of sub feature) it sounds pretty good. Although I recently bought the PSW505 as a sub and I must say it does sound much better. So my sugestion is try it for a bit, you'll love it and then upgrade to a good sub and you'll love it even more.

    I haven't used the enclosure as I would have had to tear the walls down but I haven't found any problems with the sound.

    Russell,

    I have just recently installed 3 LC-265i (L/R/C) and two LC-80i (rears) in a newly finished basement. I used the enclousers for the front L/R. See http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...p?userid=69564

    Here is a specific picture of the enclousers: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...258_17_big.jpg

    I just received last week my new pre-amp Outlaw 990 and Amp Outlaw 7500. I am also hooking up the Outlaw LFM-1 subwoofer. I will be calibrating this weekend and repost then.

    Default How are the LC265i's working out?

    Hi cewolcott,

    It's been a couple of years since your post, so I hope you catch this question. I am wondering how you like the LC265i speakers? I am about to install them in a newly remodeled family room, along with the LCi-RTS-C and LC80i back speakers, in a 5.1 configuration.

    I already put in the optional enclosure cabinets before the new drywall was installed. Now, I'm almost ready to install the speakers.

    My decision to put in-wall speakers (vs. traditional) was very sudden, and I had to move quickly to do research and decide what speakers to get. I am a fan of both Paradigm and Polk. Interestingly, Paradigm does not (at the current time) have an in-wall center speaker solution. I did not like the idea of putting Paradigm's LR speaker in horizontally.

    I liked Polk's center speaker design, so I went with Polk. And as I said, I chose the LCi-RTS-C because it comes with an enclosure, while the LCi-C does not. I thought it was prudent to get the best center speaker I could afford. But otherwise, I could not justify the additional $1200 for the RTS105's.

    My time window was so short, I had to overnight the enclosures before the drywall went up. :)

    I'm hoping I made a good decision. So this is just a gut check.

    Thanks.
