I own the RT55, CS400 and RT25 speakers, I'm looking to replace the rt25's(surrounds) with the FXi50.

Question is, will it be a big difference in timber matching? I know the FXi50 has a 1" tweeter and 6.5" driver, or should I look for the FX500?.

Front: SVS MTS-01
Center: SVS MCS-01
Surround: Polk FXi50
SurrBack: Polk Rt25
Subwoofer: SVS 20-39PC+ (Qty 2)
Pre-Pro: Integra DTC 9.8
Amplifier: BA A7200 7 channel
BLU RAY: Panasonic BD30
HD-DVD: Toshiba HD-XA2
PureAv PF60 Power Console (Qty 2)

    FX500i would be nice but the FXi50 is basicly the same speaker. It won't be a problem. Mixing a front stage (main/center) would be a little more tricky. 1" tweeter and 6.5" driver matches your front stage exactly. That is what u want to do. To get technical your rt25's were the miss match. The FXi50 will work great - good upgrade. ;) Welcome to the forum!
    PS3 and HD Front Projection, life is good. Too bad Blu-Ray and the PS3 are already obsolete.....:rolleyes:

    I don't see a major problem with that......if you can find a pair of fx/500's or even fx/500i's you'll be cool which ever way you go.

    The older models match perfectly and probably will cost less....
