Thanks
Have you switched the 82ii's to see if the problem moves with the speaker or stays with the channel? Swap the left with the right

I agree, although I love the look of the 15" copper cone, performance is what I'm after and SVS knows their stuff. Since I have to recover from purchasing the 62's I'll probably go with one PB-2000 and then go duals somewhere in the future. At this point in my life I don't think I can justify the ultra but the PB12-Plus may be an option. I'm just worried that I'll be doing the "what if" if I go the 2000 route...

After you've done the most basic troubleshooting. As mentioned above. Swap the speakers... If it follows the speaker THEN call Klipsch support.

Oh, just to mess you up even more: don't forget Reaction Audio.

Having too many options is good. You can choose from a variety of subs. At the end of the day, I don't think you can go wrong with any of these ID companies (SVS, HSU, Rythmik, PSA, RA...). They all make great subwoofers.

Yippee-ki-yay...

I think the recommended distance is 2', not sure on concrete though. Concrete can be a b*tch for sound. Where are you setting them up

You're really going to have to experiment until they sound good to you. Start at 6" and keep moving them out.

Klipsch recommended to have them 40cm from wall( 15.74") or more. Many of us I'm one of them don't have a room big enough to do so we have them much closer. I do have them 7" from wall and they sound great. Maybe if I have them even more will be better but I just can't do it.

Same here my 7II's are 6" from the back wall and one is toed in from the corner. I am very happy with the sound they produce even being so close to back wall.

I did a lot of depth adjustments on both my RF-82s and RF-7IIs and honestly, there wasn't a whole lot of difference. As long as I was at least 5-6" from the wall, they sounded about the same.

I'm still surprised that Klipsch put a rear port on their new premier center channel speakers. In my current house I would be fine with it, but in my last house I had to have it pushed back to a wall on my mantle. I even used smaller gauge wire to get it back further.

Nice subs, but they just don't have the sexy factor that the SVS subs do.

How are you planning on mounting them? Flush up against the wall or suspended off of the wall or ceiling? And what's wrong with the mounts you got from Amazon? More/better details will help you get an answer.

Speakers cannot be mounted flush against the wall due to my setup. They need to be suspended off the wall and tilted down at least 20 degrees. Mounts I bought do not.fit the speaker. Speaker has keyhole and dual threaded inserts, but I think keyhole is supposed to be for flush against wall mounting, and threaded inserts I believe are intended for a mount, which is near impossible to find. Pictures attached

http://www.omnimount.com/products/sp..._steel_series/ I used the older Omnimount WA30 tarewd for 30 pound speakers. Omnimount Tech Support several years told to purchase a mount rated twice what the speaker weighs for the ball mount . Look for these as they are getting harder to find.

http://www.amazon.com/OMNIMOUNT-30-0...ef=pd_sxp_f_pt

Mount the flange with the clap for the ball on the bottom of the back of your speaker like I did my RS3-II.

I think one of the links you gave was intended to show me how you mounted yours, but it didn't work. Any chance you can post that up in here ?
