Well I finally am Def Tech speaker free for the first time in 20 years and am full RSL speakers minus the sub which will come down the line. My 2 RSL CG23's arrived in perfect condition Friday and immediately moved the CG3's to surrounds and 3 CG23's for LCR. They are quite incredible speakers and at this price a complete and total steal. I ran Audyssey yesterday and that balanced everything out and fixed issues in the room. They quite dynamic speakers, its a very dynamic system. How they do what they do at this price is pretty awesome. The last thing I will add are 2 10s subs but that will be a bit down the line, 6 months or so. Those will replace 1 SVS PB1000.
Now the other part of this is condo/townhouse living with a home theater really sucks. We live in a townhouse with another townhouse to one side and condos on the other. I have never once heard anything from my neighbors and have never received a complaint, yet, knock on wood. But I'm constantly worried about annoying neighbors so I'm constantly up and down with the volume. I can never just set it and forget it. The sub is not up real high, in fact its kinda low which hurts the experience obviously. I was just at -20, and then a "loud" scene I dropped it to -25 which again sucks. Its like having a really nice sports car but only driving at pace car speed.
My buddy lives in a townhouse also, different complex, different town and he has a PSA system with giant PSA subs and bass shakers that shake the entire room and he gets away with it. He, as far as I know doesn't even take the neighbors into consideration.
Luckily we will be buying a house next August when our lease it up, renting at the moment.

And once you get those subs up and running I'd be willing to bet it will be like experiencing a whole new system again. Be like having new speakers

That is what I hear, dual subs always and the 10s subs are supposed to be as excellent as the speakers. They are sold out for a reason. They are literally selling them faster than they can build them.
I'm just so impressed with the RSL CG3 series that even though you can get bigger better subs I'm sticking with RSL.

That’s great Het. I like those guys at rsl and I like to see them get some support. Been thinking of upgrading my bedroom 5.1 to a 5.1.2 or at least 5.1 RSL system.
Congratulations too. Like maz said, those new subs will elevate those already great speaker. They’ll be new all over again lol. Be glad for you when you can get into a house. OTOH, if the neighbors don’t care, you shouldn’t either. Lol. But I get it...

I am more and more impressed by these speakers on a daily basis. How do they make speakers with 4 inch drivers sound so big? They sound as big and powerful at my old Def Tech SM65 with two 5 and quarter drivers but with better clarity and dynamics. I am truly stunned by these speakers. Even the "little" CG3s sound big and not small. They seem extremely neutral or at least the most neutral speaker I ever had.
I am truly blown away by these speakers. Just incredible at this price but saying that kinda insults them. Even when I used to heard Gene talk about RSL speakers I didn't think they were quite this good. Boy I wonder what the heck the CG5s sound like?

Congrats H and we need pics!
Unfortunately my Pixel 4 XL camera is freaking dead! I don't know what the issue is but I'm tussling with Google to either get it fixed or replaced. Camera app won't load and goes straight to selfie mode. Can't get it to switch to front facing camera.

No, just my phone camera which at the moment it kaput.
Man these RSL speakers are nuts. Enjoying the hell out of them. Maybe I just don't have real audiophile ears but these sounds absolutely fantastic.
