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.

I run my 82ii's large with my 64ii at 80hz sub 100, do what sounds best to you in your room. I notice very little difference when bouncing the crossovers for the most part, but the standard is all 80, sub 80. Everyone runs it a little different, but with Klipsch it all runs well!

I would chage them to small and run your crossover closer to 80 hz on all speakers (that are capable). This is how I run my setup and I find it very pleasing. With that said, the main reason I suggested this for you is, your receiver only has around 80 wpc (2ch driven) so running your mains at large will eat a lot of your juice and give you less headroom.

Spotify from a Smart TV wont give you the best experience. Its likely limited to 160K and the UI stinks. If you have Spotify premium ($10/mo) you get 320K. To use the higher bitrate, A Spotify Connect enabled receiver is the best way, but a good Bluetooth system or Airplay is you have an Apple device are also good options.

I run my music to my AVR via Airplay with my iPad Mini. Pandora or Spotify (using subscriptions for both) both produce very clean well balanced results. Nothing like being able to sit on you arse with a cold one and chose your music with but a swipe of or a point of your finger!

I also have Airfoil installed on my laptop and that works well, but seems to be victim to random drops and not as stable as Airplay. I rarely encounter any signal interruptions with Airplay.

I have a quick random question : I know it's out of topic for this thread and I already finished my klipsch setup but I figured it's a quick painless question :
I have an APC G5 power conditioner, with delayed power feature. If I have my TV on and receiver on, for example, and press the power button on the G5, it will turn off all my devices one by one, 4 seconds interval each. When you turn it on, it ll turn them back on in the same manne4, without ever touching the power button o the devices themselves. Is this how I'm supposed to use it.? Or am I damaging my devices in any way by not turning them off manually first?

Cheers Tom. I'll give that suggestion a shot. Unfortunately, my receiver only allows for sub crossover adjustments; everything else is either "Large" or "Small".

From a technical standpoint I'm not for sure one way or the other. However, I don't imagine it can be very good for the electronics to be shut off like that. You are pretty much doing a controlled power outage each time you turn your devices off. If any of the devices have a sequenced shutdown process, your conditioner is not allowing them to do that. My best example is if you were to cut the power to your PC, you would more than likely receive a prompt on next boot up that it was shutdown improperly. I know its not apples to apples but that's my $0.02

These days, On and Off is the same button. Don't laff! If you leave the TV On and turn off you conditioner, the TV will lose power and turn Off. When the TV gets power again, the TV will be in the Off state. There is only MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) that will accompany any mechanical device. Don't worry, the TV will be obsolete before the power switch fails (hopefully!).

From page 37 of your receivers' manual. Basically, set all your speakers to small and set the crossover to 80hz and you'll be GTG.
