    Default Scored a set of RT 12's

    Just got a set of RT 12's and they are in perfect shape. Peerless tweets and the facric is primo as well as the cabinets. Got em for 250 and the guy delivered to me from 80 miles away. I'll use them for my L & R surrounds with a set of SDS SRS 2.3's for mains, and Monitor 10's for rear surrounds. This should really fill my 6000 + cu ft room. :D Love the big monitor sound and the Polks do it and then some!

    I am not a surround sound guy but that system must sound pretty good :)
    Good for you and enjoy.

    Thanks Jake, A guy up in Enumclaw had them on craigslist for 250 and he delivered to me down here in Oly land. The are a 9.5 on 10. Like I said earlier, I will use them as my L & R surrounds and put the Monitor 10's to the rear surround position.

    There is also a pair of what look like Peerless 7As in Seattle if you are interested. Might as well make it 7.1. :p

    Actually I already have a 7.2 with the SDA's, RTA 12B's, and Monitor 10B's and dual HSU 3.3's with dual MBM-12's. Love the BIG monitor sound!

    Might as well upgrade to a Sunfire Grand Theater processor than and make it a 9.2. Bob Carver would appreciate the local business.

    Although, I should be one to talk; I have my two speakers...

    Mains are powered by a Carver M1.5t (350 wpc) and the center and L & R surrounds by outlaw Audio M2200 mono blocks (200 wpc) with the rear surrounds by the Piuo '94 (140 wpc). Plenty of juice to get the job done.
