    Default Just got some Rti8's

    Just picked up some Rti8's and was wondering would they sound alright paired with my cs2 center or should i upgrade to a csi to match the new speakers? I also moved the monitor 60's that were the fronts to the surrounds.

    Try it and find out. It may work fine, just because it isn't voice matched doesn't mean it doesn't sound fine. If you don't like it then upgrade to the CSI.

    Ideally you want the center and fronts to be from the same series.

    I would try it out and see what you think. If it sounds good to you then keep it. If you notice a difference then i would upgrade. Or if you are like me and it all has to match go ahead and upgrade.

    Best of luck and welcome.

    That will work but the CSi will sound a lot better with the RTI-8s...so you should consider the upgrade eventually...60s in the back won't be much of a problem at all....only the 3 front really need to be voice matched.

    I had my 60s as surrounds for a few months, let me know what you think of them. I had a feeling they would do better on blocks or something, that they were just too low to the ground to provide the proper surround experience

    I would see if you can find a csi center to try, I thought my csi3 sounded good with the pair of speakers I made for my fronts but when I made a new center to match my front left and right I was amazed at how much better it sounded matched.
