That's why I picked up my VT-60 before they were all gone! smile.gif

The cabinets will be moved to the basement and possible garage sale item. frown.gif

Wow JT, those new bookies just say MUSIC!

Spinning the rear tire at 150mph while at 3/4 lean angle will put wrinkles in your seat

Dang, that's a towerette. Would love to hear them. Yes, CL does have it's moments, my second XPA-2 was acquired for low bucks and a warranty smile.gif

It's funny, I have all this power, and I'm rocking a pair of cans as we speak biggrin.gif

Looking good! Now figure out a way to get a bigger center and you'd really be on a roll. I think you'll probably notice as much if not more of a difference with a larger center that you do with larger fronts.

I just ordered a new one as a matter of fact. I wanted the RC-62II but it doesn't fit in my new cabinet, so I ordered the RC-52II. Hopefully the dual 5" woofers will make a difference. eek.gif

It has arrived! The new Klipsch RC-52II. It's much bigger than the RC-42II and sounds very good. I haven't hade the time to rerun Audyssey which will have to wait until Saturday. I also picked up new speaker stands which put the tweeters at ear level in my seating position. I can't wait for Saturday to complete the Audyssey! Here are a couple of pictures.

I like it. The setup looks as if it has a lot of room to breathe. How far away are you from the screen, actually?

My other question is with the speakers sitting lower than the screen do you still get a high enough image to be satisfying? if you're far enough away that may not matter, i guess. In my setup and room, sound seems to come from the TV in part because my speakers have a high image, plus the tweeter and midrange are at mid-screen height.

I sit 15 feet away from my entertainment center. The speakers sit about 4" higher then the RB-61's did on my old cabinets. Being this far away hasn't effected the image for me, it seems that there is a better sound stage then I had before. I think I'm done for a while with any up grades.. I have turned over almost every piece of equipment in the last 1.5 years. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy once I rerun audyssey! smile.gif
