Sub...\n\n\n...woofer.\n\n:p\n\nYep. This...\nI know, beating that drum again. But I agree with @Pogre. Bass underpins everything, and it’s almost always overlooked. I don’t think you need a monster that hits 115db at 10hz, but respectfully, the one you have is not very capable, especially with the volume levels you’re looking for. Not saying that to beat you up. Just speaking from my experience, and hoping to help circumvent gods money after bad. \nI also agree with the others in that, the rtia7 isn’t a bad speaker. It just isn’t suited for what YOU want to do with it. IMO, you’d be a good candidate for the aforementioned JBL 580\/590 or some klipsch towers. I’ve also seen that the 7’s can benefit from an amp, but I think @PENG covered that.
