  • I agree with the Atrium route. I use 3 Atruim8's for my back Patio. they have plenty bass for being outdoors. You can always wire for a Sub if not enough for you. I use an Emotiva 2 channel amp with a Niles speaker selector for 8ohm stability. I h…
  • I agree. Crutchfield has been a good partner for Polk. Nice to see they are Polkies too.
  • Park City Hot Air Balloon Festival was this weekend. Nothing says fun like like Boos and Fire.
  • Great guy for sure.I did a 250 mile drive for work yesterday. Don was playing the whole trip. RIP Don.

  • Good to know its not just me. Not cool. I have had 2 sub cables fail from them in the last 2 years. I also have had an HDMI cable fail. I am careful in the way I run cables so the don't have to much stress on the connectors, but it is the connecto…
  • The PowerPort on these subs reminds me of my PSW 1200.
  • I was a Pioneer Elite buyer for 25 years. 9 receivers. Since the Onkyo merger I have not been happy with their products, And let's not even get started about how they dropped the ball on Blu-ray/UHD. I am currently running a Pioneer elite SC87 w…
  • Your Marantz has full pre outs on it. I would add an amp for sure. The Marantz is a good unit and will be a great Pre/Pro for you. I have a 5010 in the MB and I run a Adcom 7500 with it. Your LsiMs will be a lot happier.

  • I picked up a good set of LS a couple years ago. The previous owner had this build sheet from the 70's. My dad is now retired and runs the 70's every day. He loves them.Mom not so much. I have the 90/350 setup in the office. Great line from Polk …
  • Nice review. I have had few hours with a pair at a local retailer.They are in a close to perfect room on a tube amp that is way out of most budgets. I always wonder if the are going to be that great when I get them home. This gives me a real sense…

  • Great Choice! Love that speaker. The walnut finish is worth it. Love the side profile on them. Enjoy!
  • What a fun time this was to read. $7 make you Holler!!!

  • MY first was a GE single speaker portable cassette player. I then went to a Pioneer SX-1300 receiver and a pair of BOSE 2.2's I was in heaven back then. The 2.2s are still in my dads workshop.
  • System Update.. Just ordered dual SVS PC-2000's to replace the PSW 1200. She is a good sub but not cutting it for what I'm after. I am hopeful that the A9's and Subs will work well together. Cylinder subs will be different but look to be the be…
  • Received speakers this morning. Just as described. I would not hesitate to buy from Footwedge again. Footwedge you get an A+ in packing a speaker. Thanks for the care.

  • I love the 38i's. I think they have better midrange over the 25's. They are one of my favorite speakers from that line. The 55i's are still king but these are great with a sub. My brother still use his in the office.

  • I have been thinking the same thing when it comes to the crossover settings. It makes sense to control the lower HZ output. Looks like the 1200 will be upgraded. The problem I currently have is setting all my speakers to small causes some issues.…
