Big thanks to all you who helped me.
I ended up doing spades instead of banana plugs on my RS42IIs since it didn't seem like there would be enough clearance. Hope it works out for you!

How do the KF-28's compare to the RF-82II's, anyone know? My buddy has the latter, and they sound absolutely fantastic.. however not in my price range. Will they completely blow the KF's out of the water or is it comparable? thx

I have the kf26 and the rf82 so my experience will be slightly different.
The rf is definitely more refined in sound and a tad less harsh. The bass difference is immense but I stepped in driver size also.
Personally I would price out from avs or look used for the rf. Well worth it

Yes you are correct banana plugs did not work well with RS. I hook them up and put on each bottom corner little rubber bumper so speaker will not touch wall and now I have little more room behind but it is so so.
I did not use for RS banana plugs but I did for rest of the set and they are pretty nice to have.

Today I hook them up (RS-52II's) set up all and I'm very happy with them. Much better then mine old S-2 what I had before. So now set of 5 Reference speakers looks very good and sounds amazing( together with dual babies from SVS). Will looks soon for another pair for surrounds and front heights

On the back of the AVR is where I like the banana plugs. And on my Niles Audio speaker switching box for my two amps I used 12 more banana plugs on it. This device allows me to use my Cornwalls as fronts for my HT system and for L&R for my analog system. I have RS3-II for rears on wall mounts, and I too used spades on them too.

Yes this is what I'm going to do. i will use banana plugs for receiver and for towers and center. For surrounds I will get some spades also plus I need one more pair of bananas now and ai will get some extra for new set of speakers so I can be prepare.

I can say Yes it is. Sound is more clear and crisp, surrrounds effects are more real then before and I find myself couple of times with question what was that sound. Even my wife said those are great better then S-2. I like to listen music multichannel stereo and that is big step up from S-2. If you will watch some scary movie those speakers can promiss you will feel even more scare.
I really do like them, maybe they sound great also because they was build for matching great with RF-82II and RC-62II.

I agree on the RS series and banana plugs. It's no fault of the speaker, they are just made to install flat against the wall which leaves no room for plugs. My RS-62 II's are connected with bare wire, and my front stage are connected with spades. Everything on the receiver uses locking bananas, which I like for quick connect/disconnect ability.

Several Questions for the experts:

I am going to use the following Klipsch Architectural speakers in the new home I'm building:

LF: R-5650-WII
C: R-5502-WII
RF: R-5650-WII
LS: R-5650-CII
RS: R-5650-CII
RLS: R-5650-CII
RRS: R-5650-CII
I am also using a big (not Klipsch) sub.

Does this community recommend purchasing the ME-650-W and ME-650-C speaker enclosures for the front L and R and for the four surround speakers? Is there a better option? Also, if I purchase the enclosures, do I need to also purchase the IK-650-W and IK-650-C install kits? If I don't buy these enclosures/kits, are there schematics available to build my own?

Also, what is the recommended distance from the 50-65" TV (haven't decided which one yet) to place both the surrounds and rear surrounds in the ceiling?

I realize I've asked a ton of questions. Thanks a lot for your advice.

*I posted this in the speakers and home theatre forum, too.

I have no experience with those speakers so I can't wait what some people will response on your question but from what I'm reading here on forum and what is your plan I will try to set up room with speakers for new Dolby Atmos. In this case then you building new house you will be set for a long long long time.

Question is also how big is your room in you will have HT room or your system will be part of the living room.
Budget is also a big question, you can have easy 5.1 set up or a lot more 9.1 and with Atmos even lot more but if you build and all will be installed in the wall it is much easier to add more speakers.

Talking about TV, if you are movie fan bigger screen is simply better.

Thanks for the tips, Retro. That chart is great. I'm not sure I'm going to invest in Atmos until it's widely in use. Right now I'll just make do with my Onkyo 605.

Does anyone else have any input re: the enclosures and installation kits? Needed?

I would recommend that you do get the enclosures - that way you are not dependant on the wall cavity to provide that for those speakers and you have less sound leakage through the rest of your house - say for any rooms above or below your theater.

I believe the kits are going to be something you need to install them properly - but I would suggest contacting Mike (AVS sales) for help on these as well as pricing from them. My experience is AVS is very competitive and Mike is very knowledgeable and helpful. Good luck with your purchase.

So I need some help. After yelling bloody murder to the point my neighbors herd, I've come here. Long story short my KLF-20 cabinet was dropped during a move. I thought the front panel was only loose and no other damage. Taking the cabinet apart today I found one of the woofer's cone had a Crack in it.

I contacted bobcrites to ask their opinion since I got my xovers from them, but thought it prudent to post here and ask as well.

Think I'm gonna cry
