I recently purchased a set of near new Energy C-R3's. turns out, one of the side mid ranges does not operate as it should. The sound seems small if none at all. Anyone know where i could get a replacement woofer? I sent a request to klipsch about any possible spares but have not heard back. Wanted to know if any of you guys have an idea what or where i could find a spare or replacement.

I assume you have tried turning the mid range driver volume knob up all the way or just moved it around in general just to see if that helps... with a possible poor connection... If it still is noticeably quieter or dead as compared to the opposite side mid range, then open the speaker up and check for a loose or broken connection. The chances of Audiovox/Klipsch/Energy having a spare mid range for that old model is slim to none... your most likely only recourse is to find another cosmetically damaged single or pair to use for parts...or just try to position it so that the dead midrange points more towards the back of your room.... or just turn the volume knob all the way down and use it in monopole mode.

Hey everyone,

Doing some research for mounts. Are there any RC-R owners that have them mounted? I haven't been able to find the mounts that came with the speakers and now that we're in our permanent home, I'm wanting to wall-mount those bad-boys. I've been using them on stands at our last 2 places. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm contracting out the wiring and install, but would like to have the mounts already in-hand and not have to rely on the AV company's equipment supplier. Many thanks!

The factory mount is really simple, it's literally just a bolt that screws into the hole in the back and then you use the head of the bolt to hang it on a plastic keyhole piece that is attached to the wall. If you can go to the hardware store and find the right sized bolt to screw into the back, you may be able to fabricate something simple to affix to the wall that you can hang the speaker onto.

If anybody is looking for rear or surround speakers or is otherwise interested, I just posted a pair of RC-R's and a pair of RVSS's in the classified section. My RC-70's and RC-LCR are also posted in a different ad. I will not sell the RC-LCR by itself until the 70's have sold and the new owner of the 70's has had the first right of refusal.

Thanks Batpig,

I didn't remember them looking like that. Should be fairly straightforward to recreate.

Cheers,

Hey guys. Right now i'm running RC30s RC LCR and 2 RC-Rs. I want to go ahead with 7.1. Do i use the RCR for rears or for surrounds. And would you recommend RC minis for rears? I used to have a full 9.2 setup that i never got around to using and ended up selling the rest of my energy speakers because i lived in s condo for years. Now i'm getting back into things and wished i hadnt sold them.

Typically you'd want to use the wide-dispersion bipole/dipole type speaker in the side surround position, so it spreads the sound along the side wall to mimick the array of side surround speakers in a commercial theater. RC-Mini's would be OK for rears but another pair of RC-R would probably be even better if you're wall-mounting.

they are very hard to find! unfortunately you just missed out on a pair that was on sale a few posts up from "loknload".

RC-mini's will work too especially if you have enough space to mount them at least a few feet back

Would you believe me if I told you I had a pair of RC10s and RC-Rs sitting never opened in boxes for a year before I sold them. That was back in 2010 when I dismantled my HT.

In Canada, they were available through Future Shop, which was closed by the parent company, Best Buy. Energy Speakers pretty much died with future Shop.

Anyone in western Canada with deeper pockets than myself interested in a nice V1.8/Adcom setup?

SO My Current Setup is....

A3060 Receiver.

My Speakers are CF 70 for Front L and R
MY Center is LC LCR
6 Polk Audio RM8 Satellites for LS RS, LR, RR, FRONT PRESENCE L/R
The Polks do not pair well with my Front stage. I want to update them.

Should I Update the CF70's? WOuld the RC 70's be a good upgrade - I can get a pair for $700?

IF I leave my front stage alone, what would be good speakers to pair with them (that I can actually get my hands on) for L/R Sur L/R Rear.
Also Want to go 7.2.4 Currently at 7.2.2 so I have the AMP for the X.X.4 but I am thinking in ceiling speakers for Rear Presence.
Should I also go In ceiling from front pres? or just upgrade the RM8's I have mounted on my wall to better Speakers?

Lastly thinking about emotiva Amp 5 channel for Front stage (L/R/C) and using the Yamaha 360 to power LS,RS,LR,RR,Front and Rear Presence.
I also have a 2 Channel Niles Amp That I could use for something. But Rather Not MIX amps.
Either Use the NILES for Power my L/R CF70's and then use 3060 for the rest X.2.4 or Buy the Emotiva 5 channel and sell the Niles and use it for Front Stage CF 70 and RC-LCR power the rest with 3060.

Suggestions appreciated.

Why spend $700 on front tower speakers you already have? Get rid of those Polks... at least on the base layer and go with the still easily available (Ebay anyway) Energy CB-5 small speakers which are from the same series as your CF-70s and are wall mountable, if needed.. Any of those speakers do not require an Emotiva amp for power... I assume your receiver can power 9 channels? If so, then just use your existing Niles amp for 2 channels somewhere.. Use that extra money that is burning a hole in your pocket for an upgrade at sub instead.
