I'm contemplating building broadband bass absorbers on the side walls (wood frame, 4-6" of OC703, 6-8" air gap, covered in fabric) to hide my side surrounds.
Great job, just finish reading deatails. That will be a great HT room. Just let us know when tickets for movies get for sale

  • Fronts - RF-7 ii (x2)
  • Center - RC-4 ii
  • Surrounds side: RS-62 ii (x2)
  • Surrounds rear and Atmos height: CDT-5800C ii (x4)
  • Subwoofers - SW-115 (x2)

Powered by an Onkyo TX-NR838 receiver. To be honest, the Klipsch subs were not my first choice (I'm a fan of SVS). But, they came as a part of a package and were essentially free. So, I figured I could give them a shot.

I haven't had a chance to hook everything up yet, but here's a pic. of the work in progress.


The center is hiding up above the screen. It wasn't easy getting it up there -- that thing is a beast!
Awesome setup! You are living the dream.

I guess I'll ask the question here since I can't find the answer.


Hey all I have Klipsch RF82s, RC52, RS42s, and RS62s

The models probably don't really matter but does anybody know if the holes in the Klipsch speaker binding posts are capable of passing through 10 gauge bare wire? Right now I'm running a measly 16 AWG. My surrounds need 35 ft lengths. Anybody using 10 AWG on Klipsch?

Thanks

I'm using 12 on my front & center, using that with banana plugs. But 10 going to be really close.

Just setup my RP-280F with a RP-440c rounding out the LCR. It's being used in conjunction with my old Klipsch Sub-10 and an even older Onkyo TX-SR600. One step at a time, will eventually get there with the rest of the system. First impressions/questions:

-Top notch aesthetics; love the copper look!

-This may not seem like much as I'm upgrading from a Quintet III front stage, but the clarity of these Reference Premieres are amazing. I'm hearing things on re-watched movies that I've never heard before. Moreover, it's not because I'm turning up the volume; there actually is a difference!

-Really enjoying 5.1 with movies. No good music sources, however. I tried Spotify through my smart TV app; was ok, but I can't help to think how a good source would really make these shine. Anyone have experience with Tidal, and if so, how are you hooking it up through your system?

-Am I correct in setting the RP-280Fs to "Large" to let the RP-280F bad boys take some of the grunt work? Receiver crossover is currently set at 80hz, with the sub crossover set to 120hz (highest). What about the RP-440c, "Large" as well?

Thanks all.
