    Default How Important Are Matching Series?

    Hello...First time poster here. I just purchased the RTI A6 center and I love it. I'm saving my $$ and trying to convince my wife that the RTI A9's are next on my list, but what about the surrounds? I have a 7.1 system and obviously the FXI A6's would be on my list, but would it sound any different if stepped up & bought the LSIFX surrounds instead, or should I just stick with the RTI series?

    No reason to buy LSiFX if your fronts are RTi, unless of course you plan on going all LSi

    I agree - surrounds are the least important to match (but it is still recommended), there is no reason to jump up a series for the surrounds. If you are going to spend more on the higher series, do it on the front speakers, not the rear ones.
    Mains.............Polk LSi15 (Cherry)
    Center............Polk LSiC (Crossover upgraded)
    Surrounds.......Polk LSi7 (Gloss Black - wood sides removed and crossovers upgraded)
    Subwoofers.....SVS 25-31 CS+ and PC+ (both 20hz tune)
    Pre\Pro...........NAD T163 (Modded with LM4562 opamps)
    Amplifier.........Cinepro 3k6 (6-channel, 500wpc@4ohms)
