I can't add 4 speakers to the ceiling. Same goes for the wall. So I decided to put bookshelf speakers on stands, then on RF-7II speakers.

As for the stands, I don't remember the brand name. I bought them over 10 years ago at Best Buy.

I have searched through these pages but wanted to just ask the question directly... Does anyone have the Klipsch R-112SW (sub)? What are your thoughts? Anyone compare it to one of the SW-112 subs? Thanks!

I know I'm not the only one who can't put speakers on or in the ceiling.

Just so you know, I put those Sorbothane Hemisphere Rubber Bumpers on the bottom of the stands before placing them on my RF-7IIs.

I can put speakers in mine, but with 25' ceilings, I'm not sure how effective they would be. I could only do it your way in the fronts, rears are wall mounted. I applaud you on your ingenuity - very clever.

Thanks.

But tilting them down towards the MLP can't be done.

I can still hear sounds coming from the height speakers. That's all that matters.

I have the R-112SW and I really like it a lot, it might actually be a little overkill in my room (which is 16'x14'). I can not comment on the SW-112 and can only compare it to some older Subs that I've had. This one seems far more efficient and cleaner.

I've seen a lot of people suggest other brands which I believe might be a lot cheaper so this is really a personal preference and completely subjective.

That means they got rid of all the damaged 82's, I can't believe I fell for that. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't. I wish they would of at least told us why they were so cheap. Live and learn

I got a Pair of the 82's, my Center and some Ceiling Speakers from them during their sale. Yes the boxes of the 82's were beat to hell but the speakers were in good shape except for a very light rub mark on the back of one of the R2's which was not their fault. They offered to exchange it for me but I figured I might as well just keep it.

The Center and Ceiling Speakers boxes were in much better condition. To say that I am thrilled with getting them is an understatement!

Before joining this thread I never even heard of NFM.com so trust me when I said I was nervous about ordering from them but I looked them up and they are an authorized Klipsch Dealer which made me feel a whole lot better. I also used a credit card which offers protection as well so I took the shot and ordered the 82's one day, the center the next day and the ceilings the day after (before a single one shipped) I was hoping it was true and it was!

I called Klipsch about my faulty SW115 and they'll be sending me a replacement board to install myself. That being said, I just pulled the trigger on dual SVS SB2000s. Can't wait to set them up and hear the difference. I've always been curious about 2 subwoofer performance.

My RC62 from NFM's sale arrived in perfect shape, and I'm really pleased with it. I think most of the issue is in how things are treated in UPS distribution centers. YMMV, of course.

Help me out people: Should i go with Klispch Reference II series in the 52 line - RF -52, RB 52, and RC 52, or Home Theater Direct level 3, 2 towers , 2 bookshelves and a center. These are both in my price range ($1250 vs $1350). Or would bookshelves for fronts be just as good as the towers?

The HTD might have a 6.5" speaker vs the Klipsch 5.5" - but the Klipsch sensitivity is much higher. That's the important thing right? These will mostly be used for TV/Movies/Football. I will be using a Denon 2307CI receiver and a Dayton Audio 10" sub. These are to replace my hodgepodge of Polk S6 fronts, Cerwin Vega center channel and JBL rears. Overall - looking for crisper dialogue.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Call mike at acoustic sound design and you can get the rf-62ii front sound stage for 1100-1150

All of you two-sub folks are making me think about wall mounting my RB81s up front above subs instead of transitioning eventually to towers...

Where there is a will there is a way.... Go for it! The 81's are pretty stout and would only be that much better by complementing them with 2 subs - One for each side of course.

My endgame is either RF7s or RF82s up front with one sub, towers up front with subs in the back, or this goofy new idea of the 81s over the subs.

Due to an opening on the wall where the TV is, I only have 115 inches to play with, and 65 of it is taken by the TV stand. If it weren't for that I'd have no problem fitting RF7s and a pair of subs up front--the room overall is 14'x18', but has significant spousal approval requirements.

Any opportunity to rethink how the room is laid out? Wall mount the TV? (if FP). Move TV to another wall? Furniture? Sounds like your present layout will always restrict you from placing towers (82/7's) as your front sound stage. The wife needs to get on board - hehe... Been there done that wife battle. After sacrificing with dainty small footprint 2 channel setups for a number of years and the kids got older, the big black boxes started appearing. They get used to it and eventually stop complaining.... I also can turn it up louder than she can complain.

Rethink your room and figure out if you can accommodate what you would like.

Enjoy.

Oooh, curious to hear how they compare. Although are you comparing a ported Klipsch to sealed SVS?

I'm dying to go dual sub, but I'm in a quandary since SVS discontinued the PB12-NSD. Do I try to find a second one used (or refurb if lucky), or try to sell mine and upgrade to dual PB2000s? Obviously the latter is what my heart wants, but the pocketbook has other opinions on the matter...

Plus my next challenge will be figuring out what speakers to get for Atmos. Fortunately no problem to add built-in ceiling speakers, but which ones?

I've been rethinking a lot but the options are really limited. Clockwise, I have the aforementioned TV wall, a fireplace, a bay window, and the opening to our kitchen. The fireplace and window aren't going anywhere, and we've vetoed blowing out the fireplace wall and expanding the room because the cost is kind of insane.

There's always "buy a different house" but we own it fully (which I really like!) and have put a lot of work into the kitchen and gardens.

The good news is that my wife is very supportive; my Klipsch adventure started about two years ago when the little Bose cubes that she picked out back in 2000 couldn't keep up with her James Bond blu rays. ;-)

Yes, it's single ported vs 2 sealed. Well, looks like delivery is scheduled for next Tuesday, so no weekend testing and tweaking. I do work from home, so yeah . My listening room is roughly 3500 cubic feet, FYI. I spoke to a gentleman on the phone and the subs I chose should handle it quite nicely. Obviously better than my single SW-115.

Not to pile on, but my three RF-82's arrived in perfect condition from NFM. In fact, I was pretty impressed with the customer service I got from them and the whole buying experience went very well. Will definitely keep them in mind if I am ever in the market for other AV equipment. In fact, I already ordered some CDT-5650-C II from them to complete my atmos setup. It didn't hurt that they were 60% off either!

Well try to sell PB-12NSD or look for used one. If you sell it then you can get dual PB-2000 but I will definitelly set up subs before start doing Atmos if you can't do both together. What AVR and speakers do you have? Also how look your room (ceiling) and how many ceiling speakers are you planning to add?

Denon X6200W
Klipsch RF-7II's, RC-64II, RB-81II's, RS-62II's
SVS 2x PC12-Pluses, Emotiva XPA-200
Sony XBR65X930E , Oppo 203
Projector and scren shopping now :D

Depending on how old your sub is, SVS may give you a credit for your PB12 back and towards the purchase of the duals. SVS service is awesome - I had an issue with the grille on my 1 year old PB12-NSD, so they swapped even for a PB-2000. Decided I wanted more bass and paid the difference for a PB12 Plus. It arrived with and issue, so I decided to go all out and swapped and paid the difference for an Ultra. I have a 20x20x25 room that is open to the rest of the house and it rocks my room. It is an amazing sub.

I am in the process of assembling a Klipsch 7.1 surround sound setup. I have a pair of RF82II towers on the way and will also pick up the RC62II center. I have a question.... I am unsure what to do for the 2 surrounds and the 2 rears. Should I do RS52II for all or just the surrounds and do bookshelf for the rears? if bookshelfs for the rear then which ones 51 or 61? I will also be purchasing an SVS PB2000 sub once my bank account recuperates. My theater room is approx 12' x 26' with an 8' ceiling with the towers on the 12' wall.

Hmm. Interesting thought. Mine is at least a year old, if not 2-3 years old, at this point, so that would be pretty remarkable. What are your thoughts on two lesser subs compared to a single higher end sub?

(Although perhaps this isn't the appropriate thread for this discussion )
