My dealer tells me that it might be tough to get RS-62 II as the supplies are low throughout Europe, but he offered KS-525 THX instead with some cosmetic damage on the bottom of speakers for half the price. I saw them in person and it doesn't seem to be a big deal, but I do wonder how well would they fit with RB-81 II and RC-62 II? I'm using Yamaha RX-A1020 and I'm really not good friends with YPAO. The offer is tempting nevertheless. Could anyone advise or share their experiences with KS-525?

The thought of dual 15" copper cones intrigues me but for some reason it really bothers me that the power plugs aren't grounded on them. What would you do?
For music, avoid subs.

For movie, get the 15in one.

Ungrounded sub does degrade sound quality, but you'll only notice it on high end setups.

I've been looking without success to find a reasonable mount for the rs52 with no real luck. I want something which allows me to angle them down.

There were some options posted but they're too expensive IMO to be worthwhile.

Currently I just have them on a screw mounted in a stud and they're pretty solid.

My speakers are upside down (the threaded holes are at the top and the keyhole is at the bottom) but with the magnetic grills you can't tell.
I got these and they didn't fit the pre-drilled holes and unlike you I wasn't willing to drill new holes.

If anyone wants them for really cheap (basically shipping cost) let me know.

I didn't drill holes in the speaker, I drilled them in the mount. As Baloo_Brtu mentioned, the holes on the mount don't line up exactly with the threaded holes on the speaker. By drilling out and making 2 of the holes bigger, you enlarge them just enough to line up with the holes on the speaker, you can then easily screw the mount to the speaker (I believe I used 1/4" x 3/4" x 20 TPI screws from home depot). I have them hanging from my ceiling at an angle pointing to my MLP.

The holes circled in red in the picture of the mount below are the ones I drilled out.

Uh... OK? I guess I better let Dr. Hsu know that he's doing it wrong. I've noticed that quite few AV components are only coming with two prong power plugs.... I suppose I should let Yamaha know they're doing it wrong too. Try reading up on ground loops and Subs.

I disagree, it's just about finding the right sub, one that doesn't just go boom. My SVS Ultra is very musical and reproduces bass notes with ease, oh and it also can give a hearty boom.

Half agree, half disagree about music depending on the genre. My rf82iis on an amp go hard with 2 ch, I wouldnt say they sound bad in any way. Great for pink floyd, led zep, jazz and classical. At the other end my dnb and dubstep while it sounds good through just the 82s, a whole other level of frequencies is opened up when I turn my subs on.

But my setup is getting close to high end, so you won't notice anything like the above with normal gear.

Hi guys. My mate has just purchased his 1st proper system. I recommended rf62ii, rc62ii, rs52ii and svspb2000. He kind of listened and kind of made his own choices. He purchased rf62ii for mains, r26f for surrounds, r25c for center and a velodyne eq max15 sub. I have to say it will still be a kick *ss setup, but that center mocks me. I told him he can borrow one of my rc62iis to compare. It will be interesting to hear the lower reference as surrounds however I LOVED my synergy f30s as surrounds and would probably choose them over my rc62iis I have now.

Fronts to full range and no double bass??? Then, you unplugged the sub??? Was the sub off when you played the fronts full range or did your sub not go very low?

I seriously doubt that your mains will be able to handle <20Hz signals from movies. Or don't you watch movies?

Who says we don't have high-end systems? What do you consider "normal gear?"

But is't that the beauty of modern equipment? I mean, after all, if you want 2 channel, just punch the right button(s) on the AVR remote and you're 2 channel... Punch another and I'm back to a full blown 9.1 channels of aliens and monsters crashing across my screen. That puts me in my happy place acoustically.

Is the couch against the back wall? Mine is and I went with the RS.

You can get a stand to put them on. They should be a foot or two above ear level.

Yes against the wall....Actually a window behind me also but i can move them on the side no problem. Also with the RS is there any bass coming from them vs what i would here from the RB ?

Its all subjective. If you prefer your music without a sub then thats your choice but you wont catch me with my SB13 Ultra turned off ever. The center speaker and subwoofer are the anchors of everyones system IMO well that is if you have them

The RS-52 II has two 5.25" woofers in each speaker, where the RB-81 II has one 8" woofer. The 81 will give you more bass.

For side surround, it is usually recommended to go with the RS and RB for the rear. Up to you what kind of sound you want from your surrounds. Direct firing or dispersed.

I will get RS-52II, no worries about bass your sub will take care of it. RS are excellent for surrounds. RB-81 will produce better bass but if you have sub you don't need to worry.
