    Default LSI's as Alternate Fronts

    Have been fantasizing about setting up a pair of LSI's as an alternate pair of fronts to use for music listening (I'd probably still use the RTi10's for HT)
    The LSis would be run thru my Amp's "B Speakers" - so all I'd need to do is use the A/B switch on the Amp.

    Considering LSi9s (next time they come up on eBay, or or other good deal)

    QUESTION 1: Locale...
    My RTi's 10's currently stradlde by my media cab about as far apart as possible (apx 12') so the LSi's would either be:

    a) in between the 10's and the media cab (creating a rather tite angle to listening spot.) and rather close to the 10's...

    b) on top of the 10's (thus above ideal height)...

    possible interference?...

    QUESTION 2: does anyone see any additional probs with this setup.

    LR Setup:
    Polk RTi10's, RTi6's, CSiA6 (5 ch setup)
    Onkyo 705 & Denon 3808ci Receiver, Onk 875
    Parasound 2250 Amp
    Sony 26" KDL series Bravia LCD
    Panny DMR-EH75 Recorder
    Panny DVD-F87 (5 disk DVD player)
    NAD T585 (DVD/SACD)
    Yamaha DVD-C961 (5 disk SACD/DVD)
    SciAnt Explorer 8500HD Cable Box
    Orig & 5Gen iPods, , Wii

    400 disk player that handles ALL formats, sounds as good as NAD with Panasonic interface & compatability.

    I would put them in between. You will have to play with toe a bit, and will have to move them out a bit when listening, but you should be fine.
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ 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.
