Hi all,

 

I have a 18 x 12 x 9 foot room for my HT system, with the following parts:

 

  • two Klipsch RF-82 for the tower speakers
  • one Klipsch rc-52 for the center speaker
  • two Klipsch RS-42 for the surround speakers
  • one Klipsch downfiring 12 inch subwoofer (sub-12)
  • yamaha rx-v575 7.1 for receiver

 

Should I have a bought a smaller system instead?  Just worried it's to much for the room.  Welcome all feedback.

 

Thanks!

I would look at smaller towers from the front left and right or a larger center. The RF-62's are plenty.

BTWs you can always turn the speakers down but you can only turn them up so much.

If you are paying $400 for the Sub-12 their are better things out there for your budget

Yep. Save a few dollars and get the 62s and put the savings toward a "real" sub.

The thing is I've already purchased the rf-82.  It was on a great sale and it was just a little more expensive than the rf-62.   I couldn't resist at the time.  Now I'm just wondering if I've made a bad decision.

 

 

What should I expect if I stick with the RF-82's?  Will there be to much bass, treble?  Or is it just going to very difficult to calibrate with the Yamaha's YPAO calibration?

I personally think you're better off with the larger RF-82 towers. Your room is on the large side. I think the RF-82 will be more capable for your room size then the RF-62. The price difference isn't that much between these speakers. I would of also chose the larger speakers just for the small increase in the price. You won't have a problem with these speakers overpowering the room or having to much bass. That's what the calibration process is for. If you like to listen loud the larger speakers will also be a benefit. The larger drivers won't have to work as hard as the smaller drivers in the RF-62 at loud volumes.
