    I just got back from a friend's house that had some Def-Tech speakers, and man...I swear to god they ROCK the house man. The sound was so clear...no hiss! IT WAS AWESOME! The soundstage was AMAZING! It only needed two speakers for surround sound. The driver that fire from the side made the soundstage go botta bing botta bang! it was awesome! simply put! I never heard nething like it. I think I may of found my second pair of speakers to buy for my 2 channel rig to build off of. It was simply amazing.

    I think The rt line would get beat up by the Def Techs.But the Lsi line could hold it's own and surpass in alot of ways.The Lsi line is much more musical.I perfer the Lsi over Def Techs.

    The rti150's vs the BPS2004's??? The Def Techs would kill em dead.

    It was a mismatch but we had only the mains on

    The mains were the middle line of Def Tech 10 years or so ago, not sure of model number
    Some huge arse klipsch center
    and some cheap surrounds
    M&K MX-90 subwoofer...(everyone around here must have one...lol)
    A pioneer Elite receiver from 10 yrs ago
    and we used the radio since his cd player was broke, I didnt turn his system up too loud considering this guy is in his mid 60's (hes a dude I work with when I work for my dad)

    But between thos two speakers, I swear to god - junk was behind me, beside me, infront of me, across the room...it was everywhere. The sound was so clear, so well done - and for the radio, it was awesome. Everything was just where it was supposed to be. It put my polk's to shame, clearly put

    I thought id add more...Polk - its like the sound isnt outside the box, its just where u play it...but the def tech's they had this live feel to it...it was just the sound I had been looking for..something I could enjoy and not think twice about it

    I looked at your pics of your system and it really doesn't look like the ideal setup. I've had more than a small battle with speaker placement in a tiny room, and I would know that simply jamming a speaker in the corner will not make it sound the best. Try different placements (or best of all, a different room (basement?)), then if you still aren't happy try LSi.

    Exactly!!!!!
    Mx - you simply heard a "well" setup pair of speakers that were very broken in. Comparing "your" setup is the problem. Really!
    But ya - Def Techs have been around along time and they hold there own.

    I have heard the Def Techs at a local HT shop and really was not impressed. Not to say they are junk but they seemed very bright to me and I was actually fatigued when I left the room.

    Mx,
    You may know this already, but if you do a little research on Definitive's Web site, you'll figure out the company's former relationship with Mr. Polk. Sandy Gross? Johns Hopkins University? 1972? A Baltimore area company?

    Definitive makes a wide range of speakers, concentrating more on the higher end, especially with small but powerful subwoofers and bipolar towers. I don't like the wrap around fabric grills on their towers myself, but otherwise they'd be a good, but more expensive, option to compare with Polk for home theater. I think the soundstage impression you were hearing may have been related to the bipolar design. Some don't like it. Some do.

    Well setups...alright - left main, behind the subwoofer, the subwoofer covering well over half the speaker
    Right main, firing into the couch..WOW!

    To note well setup, me and my dad were setting his system up as we were there, since the man hasnt used it over a year probally, it has been through power outages and had lost all its settings.

    My dad's system could blow away probally neone's in this room, probally wouldnt blow away a LSI setup, but considering the fact his surrounds are placed in top of the wall corners, and his mains fire into the sub and couch...it probally means to yall that his system sounds bad. Even though their all klipsch, ill tell ya - it rocks the effin house. even though it is pourly setup in placement. Think what ya think, Placement may be high upon most speakers, but If you got junk calibrated the junk sounds fine.

    My system sounds awesome, but rt35i in 2 channel sucks eggs. You put 5.1 with it and man they jam to the master plan. I love the junk, but sometimes the mains just arnt mains their just there and they suck eggs. Then other times they rock da house with a thump thump thump and bump d bump its all good.

    If i wanted, I'd move my system in the den. If you didnt no my system is in a bedroom, I paid for it - in sweat and blood, working my butt off. In other words, its locked up from others so only I can use it. I do not want my sister or mom using my system, i told them myself if they pay for it ill move it in the den. thats the bottum line. Nice to know you did research on my system, placement and all....I am limited on placement and cant venture into the subject...newayz


    adding on to the post, I know for a fact the only reason u people are jumping all over me and what i posted about, was the simple fact I cut down polk. Its clearly my opinion, so why are u bothered?

    MX, are you suffering from the same victimization that Jstas apparently suffers from? No one jumped all over you. They made an observation and offered their opinion. How does their opinion constitute jumping all over you when your opinion wasn't taken the way you dreamed up? If you don't want others input, as it's appearnt at you don't, then don't start a thread. Plain and simple.

    I dont want to give you any detailed speaker placement advice b/c there are so many theories and methods and no one is correct or incorrect. The only thing I can say is if you aren't happy with the imaging and clarity of the RT35is is that the absolute worst place they could be is in the corner. I'm sure you get mad bass, but I have to say, i applaud you for having more sense than the typical teen who only wants "da big thumpin' super duper ultra mega hyper extra mad bass"

    I dont care if they give me their opinion, when they clearly state my stereo isnt a rig, and my system isnt comparable to others because its placement isnt right, then i have a problem. If you havnt heard my setup, then u obviously dont no how it sounds - therefore u cant judge it. This is the only opinion i dont care for, and im tired of reading it. Everytime i say something people gotta tell something about me on how i cant do this and this and why im probally wrong. Well if im wrong - then my judgement is clearly wrong, if they have a problem with what I think then they obviously dont need to post it.

    LOL! actually i dont have alot of bass, i keep it pretty low, sub is on half way, and the lfe level is at 3+

    Man i've had my 35's everywhere...beside the tv, in the middle of the shelf..lol! i just found they sounded best in the corner...firing to the 'sweet spot'. Maybe its just my ears...but thats what I thought sounded best on how I ran my system (in 5 channel stereo, all the time.)
