    Default RTiA9S need help and opinions!

    Hi guys,

    New here and could use a little help. I just ugraded my mirage omni 260s to the RTiA9s. They are amazing. My full setup is:

    Onkyo TXSR806
    2-RTiA9s fronts
    1-Infinity Beta c360 center(is this a good match?) it sounds good.
    2-Polk vm10s rears
    2-Mirage omnistat for back rears
    1-DSW Micropro 1000 Sub

    Room is 18*14

    Do these speakers seem like a good match. Im more worried about the fronts and center. They seem to match well. Do the rears really have to match?

    The sound is subjective and if it sounds good to you then its good. The general rule though, is to match the Mains with a Center of the same series (meaning same tweeter & timbre matched)...the correct match for the A9s is the CSi A6. Matching the surrounds, rear and sub is not as critical as matching the front three.

    I would consider getting the matching center, but would not worry about the rears. I had the Rti 10s and really appreciated the improvement when I moved from a CS2 to a Csi5.

    If it sounds good to you then I wouldn't worry about it. The csi a6 IMO would sound better and match perfect.

    Welcome to Club Polk.
    I agree with the others who recommend that you use the CSiA6 center with the RTiA9's. It is not as important to match the side or rear surrounds, however, you may want to look out for a pair of matching FXiA6 side surrounds to compliment our setup. Good luck on your audio journey.

    yep, not much to add here besides perhaps the cosmetics of the a6, she is big and beautiful just like the a9s.
