    Default FXi3 vs FXi5

    Is there a big difference in sound and performance in the 6.5inch driver vs the 5.25inch?

    I was recently in the same boat, and haven spoke with Matt at Polk, the difference between the 2 is so minimal that your ears probably wont tell a difference, so for now I am staying with the FX300i's and they sound great!!

    The 5's are designed to throw that soundfield into a bigger space/room, so in a small room the differences may or maynot be as noticeable. Trick here is getting the right surround speaker for your size of room.

    I bought a pair of the FXI-5s off the Polk Ebay store and they are AWESOME!!! Given the size of your room, I'd be all about the FXI-5's. Amazon is running a good deal on the FXI-A6's in white, but they are essentially the same speaker.
