I have the following setup:

RF82II
RC62II
RS52II
Dual PB-2000 or single PB12-Plus (future purchase)

Do you guys think it's worth to get an Emotiva amp? Will I notice a huge difference? I was thinking about the XPA-3 or XPA-5.

IMHO I think a flagship AVR will do fine with your setup. If you were going to a 7.1 then maybe an amp would be justifiable if you listen at reference. If you don't crank it then a 125 w/ch will be more than enough to piss your neighbors off. . Not trying to start a piss fight with any of you external amp dudes either hee hee.

I'm just going with 5.1 for now, but I might upgrade to 7.1 later.

If that's the case I don't understand why you are selling your Denon X-4000 and wonder what you would be replacing it with (or driving with your system now). {EDIT: If you want an upgrade I would do your front soundstage.}

{2nd Edit: If I remember correctly, you are driving the system with an X4000 already and I stand by the recommendation above..}

The X4000 I'm selling is a spare one I was going to use in my living room. I ended up using my SC-1522k in there instead.

Got it. I was editing while you responded and see recommendation above and good luck..Fwiw, if you are considering an external amp check and see what SPL you are listening currently and decide if it's speakers (sq) or volume that you are wanting. My 2 cents.

You may be right about the mid horn throat size..... I was going by memory from several years ago when I helped repair the loose motor boards on a friends pair. Anyway it's the tweeters we are swapping the diaphragms.

Did you move all your Klipsch back into one home again? If so just turn up those Honky 402 horns and crank up that DTS10 make a paper airplane out of the to do list and see what happens if your bored.

RF3 grills - any chance on finding them?

Over the years my pegs have been breaking, and my last move was particularly tough on them. Can grills be sourced from Klipsch directly or anywhere else?

They replaced my RC64II grill with a phone call. I had to provide my serial number. It's worth a shot to call them.

Some folks have just drilled a small hole into the old peg area and inserted a round head screw of the same peg length

Yes, everything is back at the house in TN, including the Danley's. They are however, still relegated to hiding in the garage as I am still lacking the proper permits to bring them into her room (the room where according to her, I can "do anything I want")


hmmm.....


The two MWM singles are on the left, Danley's on the right.

I am still waiting to see what Klipsch has in store for us via, Claw and Dagger's assumption that something is "happening at the end of this month or the beginning of next..." You, OTOH should be listening to your wife and take her up on what you should be doIng in "her room."

Yes my 2nd pair. Other than the wood finish the h2 is basically a pro speaker. They use the same or most of the drivers in a few models. I figured if I found a good deal on a pair they would work good as rears.

Sweet! Your system has certainly changed over the years. Too bad you can't keep your post history and change your nickname.

The stands are pretty tall 35". They hold them straight with no sway. Atm they are just sitting on them. My other pair are also on stands. They are shorter but still a god size. This would be a big no no if any kids were in the house. Would be dangerous. I will get a few picks for you.
