    Default Mixing RTi with RTi A Series

    Right now I've got a 5.1 with RTi12's, CSi5, and FXi3's. I am finally building a dedicated theater room and want to go to 7.1. I assume that the RTi A series is a good match (since I can no longer find the old series) but had 2 quick questions:

    1. Is it worth it to go with FXi A6's or will FXi A4's be ok?

    2. If I go with FXi A6's should I then use them as side or rear? Not sure if either position puts out more sound than the other.

    Thanks.

    What's your room size and what are you currently using to power your 5.1 setup? Depending on the answers to those questions, I would most likely recommend skipping the 7.1 setup and going with better amplification of your current speakers.

    No complaints from me on my FXi A4's. For me I choose the side postion and the RTi 6's for the rears.

    The placement depends on your room. I choose the side, and set them to Dipole. After you get them see what placement you prefer.

    go for a pair rti3s if you can find them for your rears, use the fxi3s as your side surrounds.

    What about using FXiA speakers for rears instead of A1's or A3's. Would FXiA's be better? I currently have the A1's on my side walls, but almost touching my back wall. I'm looking to upgrade to either the A3's or the FXiA's. Oh any i am only running 5.1 because of my room setup.
