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

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.

World Wide Stereo has the walnut version for $1279 each and you get a free RC-64, amazing deal. I think it ends today.

But when the conditioner it's turned on, the TV turns on automatically. Doesn't that mean it stays in the On state?

If the TV comes On when you turn on the conditioner, then it is On. My TV (Panny) would remain Off. However, like dkami712 noted, it wouldn't allow the device to "Turn Off Properly." Like turning the key Off in your car, if it could, without going to Park. I know that my BD player (OPPO) has a turn Off routine. Doing a "Hard Reset" can probably do damage to components (i.e. not being able to disengage relays and such) if not allowed to undergo its shut Off routine.

To be clear, msrp at frys is 449, but they have this "promo codes" things they do when you sign up for the promo code mailing list where every day you get an email with different sales, and the email will have your personal promo code. You need the promo code to redeem the offer in store. I dont think it works online.

To be clear, msrp at frys is 449, but they have this "promo codes" things they do when you sign up for the promo code mailing list where every day you get an email with different sales, and the email will have your personal promo code. You need the promo code to redeem the offer in store. I dont think it works online.
Omg i signed up to their site but i haven't received anything from them....That deal you got was insane....I need that code...lol

Lol at first I bought it for 314, as I got someone to give me employee discount. Then I found the promo code deal and I had them retroactively price match to the 199. Here is an example of when it goes on sale http://www.hotnewdeal.com/2015/01/12...rence_Series_/

I was finally able to install the RB-41 II's and RB-51 II's I bought a couple of weeks ago...wanted to experiment with FH's...these are my impressions. I positioned them at a height of 7 feet above and just inside my 82's and angled them down at my MLP. I installed the 41's first with 3" long wood screws into studs using the speaker's built-in keyhole and extending the screw to attain the angle I needed. I then reconfigured my AVR for 7.2, ran Audyssey, and played with Dolby Pro Logic IIz Height and Audyssey DSX listening modes. Using and alternating both listening modes with various movies and music, my preference is DSX as it sounded more natural to my ears. My understanding is IIz is more suited for game content. I then repeated this exercise with the 51's.

My overall experience puts me in the camp of: It's a very nice "subtle" effect in that FH's do indeed broaden the front sound stage. The degree and the effectiveness depend on the source material that is used to upmix the content. I did not notice a great deal of difference between the 41's and 51's for FH use. The 51's were a bit louder but adjusting the 41's trim up a bit accomplished the same effect. From my experience, smalll/medium FH speakers are more than capable of handling the upmixed FH material...timbre matching could be more important...YMMV. In conclusion, for me, FH's are a nice to have rather than a must have. Unfortunately, my room cannot accommodate FW's.

Now, I will be directing my attention to Dolby Atmos...which I believe will be more of a game changer.
