Your system looks great. And at least you can listen to it. Mine isn't done yet! The furniture is IKEA Besta that I hacked. I floated shelves, made backgrounds to my TV years before they thought of it. I also custom routed out some of their doors to make speaker grills. In the photos you can see my old TV that I need to replace. Also a missing door... which will go on once the middle atlantic rack is hot. Also added an APC power backup so I can stop the Dirextv resets when the power flickers! If your patient you can get some awesome deals. Like that rack... paid $125 for it.

what do you think about bridging your center speaker ?did you notice any more power? can you crank it up loud still ? how does it compare to running it in normal vs bridging ? i m very curious

I haven't powered on my syatem yet. Still running wire and missing xlr to connect the amps. I will bridge the center but only because of have no use for the extra channel. I have soooooo much overhead power there's no logical advantage to bridge or not to bridge the center. At least from what I understand. Had 2 big setbacks this week... so definately waiting now on the money to move forward. Had a damn pipe break in the bathroom wall and my laptop hard drive crashed. Just can't win!

Hey guys,
I recently purchased a crown XLS 2002 and I can hear a slight hiss from the inside of the amp (supposedly a PSU hiss). It's >15kHz, so not too bothersome, yet in a dead silent room I can even hear it from two meters away from the unit. Does your crown hiss internally too? Is there anything I can do to make it truly silent (except for wrapping it in a blanket)? Most users complain about tweeter hiss when using those amps but I don't have that problem (using XLR connection).

Funny thing, I switched from a class AB amp with rumbling PSU to a class D amp with hissing PSU. It's a catch 22 situation.

well the noise is coming from the unit itself, not from the speakers and I would describe it as electrical.

Try lowering the volume on the front of the amp to 75% and see if it goes away

2 separate amps, 2 separate power supply designs. Both make noise. Maybe there is sever electrical noise on the line cause the PS to make noise. Could try a filter/power conditioner.

2000 watts of power and climbing

Hi guys, can anyone recommend which amps to go with for my Klipsch setup? I was thinking of maybe just going with 4 of the 1002's, bridging them at 700w/8Ω for my LCR and the other one to handle each of my surrounds. Will this work OK with my receiver? I figured I'd let the receiver run my Atmos ceiling speakers.

Thanks in advance!

AVR: Marantz 6011
L/R: RP-280's (600w peak)
C: RC-64 II (800w peak)
Surrounds: R-5800-W II (200w peak)

Don't confuse RMS vs Peak power.
RC-64II - Power Handling 200W RMS / 800W Peak

Klipsch are very efficient speakers. In my opinion you should setup the amps like mine. Look back in the thread to see. There simply would be no benefit to bridging the amps for the LCR. But consider the 1500 series amps if your using them unbridged

How many surrounds do you have and how many ATMOS speakers are you planning? How far is your seating from the main listening position?

Your receiver has 9 amps rated at 110 watts per channel and those Klipsch have very high sensitivity. I don't think you even need the Crowns and could use the money elsewhere.

Why are you thinking about buying them? Do you feel/hear your receiver being strained trying to push your speakers to reference level? Do you even listen to volumes that loud?
