    Default PA R50 upgrade...

    Hi guys, New Polkie here. I recently picked up a pair of R50s on blowout sale at Fry's. They sound pretty good in our small room but I'm looking to upgrade them. I've had my eye on a pair of Monitor 70's for a while but they are just too deep for where they need to go. So the R50s will have to suffice for now. I'm looking to replace the tweeters (center too) with the Vifa XT25TG30 as is used in the LSi Series. I also would like to match the woofers to my CS2. Has anyone done any upgrades to their R50s? Also, anybody know which woofer is used in the CS2?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Save your money and replace your mains.

    Space is the enemy not the budget per se. I'm content, for the most part but I think the tweeter upgrade will help the R50s match the CS2. I'll upgrade my receiver and rears before I buy new mains. For what I've spent... it sounds pretty good.
