I actually found another hole on the other side of the box just now that I didn't see. That one I can put my fingers in and touch the speaker again. Damn.
I will speak to Emp Tek on Monday since they are closed.

They have had excellent customer service up until this point, so I have hope

Seconded, what I received from EMP was VERY well shipped. Wouldn't be surprised at all if the speaker is in perfect operating and cosmetic shape.

Ask them to add an extra box if they can and switch to UPS or someone else. It looks like Fedex in your area likes to hit boxes.

They're going to ask you to take the speaker out and inspect it. Just do it now. No point in waiting really. You have proof it was boxed that way. Hell, if you're that worried, which you shouldn't be with RBH's customer service, take a video to prove you didn't tamper with it while taking it out and inspecting it

It vents back, you don't want to mount it to the wall.

Well yeah I know that, I wouldn't put it directly up against the wall.

Have you seen anyone done this? He uses the E55ti as main and put the Studio 60 as surround, permanently Not kidding. Does this make sense?
E55ti = $477/pair (main)
Studio 60 = $2340/pair (surround)




Are you sure he's not pulling your leg. I love my EMPs, but those Paradigms are mighty fine speakers. It seems a waste to use them as surrounds.

Wouldn't be the first time I've heard someone say the r55ti is quite close to Paradigm Studio towers. In my case it was the 100v5 he was referring to. If you look at the measurements for the 60v5, they're pretty similar to the r55ti. The RBH might have a little more in the midrange though

To add to the great suggestions by ousooner2, also try adjusting the crossover for your EMPs/RBHs. My Denon set the crossover to 60 for mine, which may technically be correct, but they sounded boomy at that level. Still deciding what crossover I prefer, but it's somewhere between 90 and 120. Above 120 and I start losing the midrange detail.
I just received my R55Tis and R56Ci and I couldnt be happier. My Denon x4000 Auddisy also set the crossovers at 60Hz, which is way too low. The speakers roll off quickly below 100Hz, which is where I manually set them at. Any lower and they are clearly overdriven. Also, my x4000's volume can go to max, and these still have more room to go. Looks like ill be buying an amp next. I hate AVS forum for all its solid deals and great advice, it makes me spend too much money.

They will be just fine with an 80 x-over. I've played them at reference with a 60hz x-over a few times on pink noise, etc to see what kind of distortion or excursion I'd get and I found that 80hz sounded a little less strained to me. 100hz is fine too, but it's going to be that much easier to localize a sub or subs and you're getting rather high in the passband unless you have a sub that can play up that high very cleanly.

By the way, I hate how AVR's only give you 60,80,100. I want increments of 5! Thought about picking up a mini-dsp a few days ago, but I just don't have time to do everything with it.
