I'm looking for some hi fi in walls at a value price. These JBL's can be found under $200 pr but I don't have the luxury of auditioning them since no one locally carries them. I like the Northridge speakers but havn't heard th new E versions. I contacted JBL support and was told the HTi in walls are completely different tech than the Northridge and not a matching speaker. So I have no reference point at all. If anyone has any experience with these JBL's and how they might compare to the Polk RTi or TCi I would appreciate your comments. Also if their are any other recommendations in the under $250 pr mark please yell. Thanks.
