    My Home Theatre designer has "upgraded" my Zone 2 in-ceiling speakers from Phase Technology CI 6.2's to Klipsh CS-650-RSM. Is this really an upgrade? The Phase Tehcnology speakers have a better rated lower frequency, assumably due to the fact the tweeters are not mounted in the center of the driver but rather on the edge of the enclosure. Also, the tweeters on the Phase Techs are .75" vs. .50" on the Klipsch.

    Any help and opinions would be appreciated before I start mounting speakers to the drywall.

    I don't think that's an upgrade. I really really like my Phase Tech speakers.

    Considering the Klipsch are listed as their "Contractor Series" I figured this was NOT an upgrade!

    I think your installer/dealer just upgraded his profit. Stay with Phase Tech and you would love it.

    Cheers

    See the offerings from http://rbhsound.com.

    See if there's a rep in your area that can demo them for you.

    Very good stuff indeed.
