Ok. so when do you all think it's time to upgrade something in your system? I've tweaked here and there.. yes I do need a bigger more powerful sub.. that goes lower than the 350. That's a given.
But besides that... when do you say. "i've tweaked my system enough now, it's time to upgrade componets or speakers"
When new wires, cables, amps, moving around speakers, playing with different settings.. I find that there isn't much room for dramatic improvement left in my system without going with different speakers.
I guess i'm not happy with the lack of full range bass from the RT1000i's and RT800i's. I don't think adding a bigger sub is exactly the sound i'm looking for either. I much prefer fronts with larger woofers... for a fuller bass sound from them.
Are there any older model Polk bookshelf or floorstanding speakers which use a larger woofer? say at least a 8", perferably a 10" or 12"?
I don't think i can afford any of the SDA's right now..but maybe in the future. Would that give me better bass for fronts? If so.. would those match with the rest of my speakers?
While I've heard nothing but good things about the LSI line.. for the most part. I know the move up to say.. LSI 9's or 15's would sound better.. don't they also use 6" or 8" woofers in them?
I guess i'm bassing my expectations on my friends 13 yr old Klipsch Chorus II's. While i don't care for the horn tweeters... i love the full range bass sound he gets from the 15" woofer and 15" passive radiator, in each of his fronts. Lovely down to I think 16kHz
Finally, while i use my sub for two channel music.. i find that the 1000i's and 800i's don't do well for music with deep bass. I listen to mostly classic rock and 80's type music.
thanks for letting me get this off my chest.. i feel so much bettter already.
