Current setup :

Front
-POLK RTIA1
Sub Woofer -POLK DSW PRO 550

I was advised for POLK RTIA3 for front , RTA1 can be moved for rear
For centre i was advised Polk CSIA4 by PROFX ,

should i go for this same setup or any other suggestion ?

My budget is around 60K+ for both(centre and front) , should i increase the budget ?

Suggest the speakers which will be compatible for my AVR.

My viewing is 80% movies / 20% music..

Should i stick with Polk or use someother combos ?

It's always better to use identical/upgraded speakers from the same brand for a 5.1 setup since they will have a similar/comparable sound profile. The one ProFX suggested, looks good to me, they shouldn't disappoint you in Movies. If you want to try a different brand, I would replace all 5 speakers from that brand.

this is exactly what he said. But he is keeping me waited for almost 2 months telling me that warehouse has some issues blah blah..which is why i am little frustrated.

Also will these speakers will be enough or should i get slightly better ones from POLK ?

can those speakers be got online ? if so where ?

These are good suggestions.

One modification.

For surround, pick the Polk FXiA4

Centre CSiA4 is excellent.

For fronts, choose between RTiA1 and RTiA3.

The RTiA3 is a really large bookshelf (6.5 inch mid/woofer driver).
The RTiA1 may fit better.

I am planning to install a smart plug for my subwoofer , which is often not switched off and this was the possible reason given by technicians for two breakdowns in the past.

I thought i will use a smart plug , so that i can switch it off from my phone itself.

What Amps should i get ?
