    I don't know much about the BIC stuff, but I've read good and bad about it. The specs on that stuff seems a little too good, especially considering the weight of the components. I would be skeptical, until one of the more knowledgeable people on here reply. They sure do look cool though:D If you don't like the sound of your polk set up, you may need to upgrade your electronics, and not the speakers?

    +1. I'll bet those horns are brighter than your current Polks. Have you tried backing down the treble a bit?

    Seems to me your AVR is the weak link in you set-up. Get the BIC's and go join the BIC forum.

    I had the bic ht-75 and did a comparison between them, the infinity primus 362 and av123 x-sls and the bics came in last by a good margin. Imo you'll be taking a few steps down coming from the rti8.
