    I had Polk RT-5 speakers. I just added 2 RT-25i speakers and a CS-245 as the center. I would think that the rt-5's should be the front speakers since they are a little larger. My concern is that the rt-25i speakers might sound better than the rt-5 speakers. Would it be wrong to put the rt-25i speakers in the front? Do you think they are better sounding speakers? Would this affect the volume of my home theater system? Thanks for your time!!!

    I believe the RT5 was the forerunner of the current RT35i. Since the RT25i and the CS-245 are voice-matched, you should try them up in front first and use the RT5 as surrounds.

    If you have a sub..by all means put the rt25i's up front with the cs245i... that way your fronts will be timber matched..wich is much more important than the size of the speakers IMO..
