I have a Denon AVRX 3100 W receiver. My front speakers are the Polk T 50s I have a kliptch sub 10, my side and rear speakers are Polk FX 1–a4’s, My question is will the CSIa6 center channel speaker complement my set up.

    It's a fine center, but not a timbre match to your T50's.

    So should i look for a different center channel speaker? Or different front speakers? What would work, or match with my a4’s as i like the looks and sounds of them? Thank you for your comments

    If you can find a pair of RTiA5, A7 or A9 I would go that route. Any of those would be a perfect match to the CSiA6 and a major step up from the T50.

    I had the M70's SII for quite a while and sounded best with a ton of power behind them, IMO. The RTi10's are comparable to the A7s would also, IMO, be a step up from the M70's. I would think the CSiA6 and the RTi10's would be a great choice. Also, the FXiA4 is the bi/di pole speaker, right? And yes, all of the above would work well, I've used the FXiA6 with the M70's and the A9's.

    Bet that’s a banging HT setup. Congrats! Got a sub in the mix? That would definitely take it to the next level!

    Time to step up the sub game. Dump those and get one SVS SB4000.

    Heck even on SVS PB1000 would up your game considerably… believe me, been there, done that…but if you’re loving what you have then rock on!

    My current setup is a pair of the RTI-A7 and those paired with the csi-A6 and the fx1-A4’s work fantastic together!!! I have two subs a polk 8 inch and a kliptch sub12, going to sell the polk 8 inch sub and look for another! My question is what other subs would pair well with my current setup?
    Thanks for any advice

    I just told you, sell both subs and get a single SVS SB4000. It'll easily outperform your current subs.

    Not a great sub. Like I said, even a SVS PB1000 will be a big upgrade over both your subs combined…

    Second that svs sb 4000. It is in a whole other level . I had 2 Polk 10 subs at one time and 2 Klipsch 12 inch subs another time and 1 svs sb 4000 blew them away by so much that Polk and Klipsch shouldn't be able to call them subs.

    If you know anything about SVS, all their Subs are damn good. You should buy the correct size sub or subs to match the size of your room.
    The 4000 isn't better than the 1000, it has more output and IF needed works better in larger rooms. But if you have a small room, the 1000 series is the way to go. Followed by 2000 3000 etc.

    Keep an eye on the SVS outlet store. Currently a SB1000 for $499 or a PB2000 for $599. I own the PB2000 and absolutely love it...

    Among other things there are significant differences between the SVS drivers.
