Curious with your Atmos demo experience with FH's but without having ceiling or Atmos enabled speakers...can you describe the "earsatiabley delicious" effect? I was going to utilize my 41's or 51's ala SVS placement recommendations but decided to adhere to Dolby recommendations with ceiling speakers and am looking at the Klipsch series of ceiling speakers. I found it interesting from reading other threads that folks have installed everything from Monoprice ceilings to $1000 ceilings...all professing to obtaining excellent results...hmmm. Actually, this discussion is getting OT...will take this to the Atmos thread.

RS-62's

You guys weren't kidding when you said these things are huge! I hooked them up in 2ch last night just to make sure they work and they sound wonderful. Now I just need to finish the living room remodel so I can start on the theater. Meanwhile everything sits unused. Sorry for the crappy potato pics.

I just got a pair of RS-52IIs to go along with my RF-82IIs and RC-62II. Surround sound, finally!


I wanted to mount them on my side walls in studs, but the studs in my walls aren't symmetrical, so it looks like I might need to use drywall anchors to mount them.

Anyone else use drywall anchors to mount their RSs? Just trying to do a risk assessment. I know each speaker is only 15lbs and you can get anchors rated for 50lbs and up, but it still makes me uncomfortable. Could you vibration from the speaker vibrate the anchors out of the wall?

Set my mind at ease, gentlemen.

I plan to mount my RS-62 II's using a half inch piece of Birch plywood using three WingIts per board. Then, use a #12 X 2" screw for the keyhole mount. WingIts can be bought at the Home Depot. Each one holds 300# and are vibration proof.

I've got my RS52iis mounted with just drywall anchors not on the 2x4s. Roughly 45 days no problems.

That is a great idea! Specially with 32lbs surrounds. I'm going to do just that. Thanks

When I mounted my RS3-II on that wall near the ceiling I was advised from a Tech Support at Omnimount to use a mount that is rated 2X what the speaker weighs for a long term use. It's a shame Omnimount has discounted the WA 30/60/100 wall and ceiling mounts. I used the WA30 for a 30 pound speaker and IIRc my RS3-II are about 12 pounds. I was looking for a pair WA100 (100 pound rating to mount a Heresy II on the wall in the bedroom and get them off the stands I made..Or make a "French Cleat" and wall mount the heavy HII. I finally found another pair of WA30=30 pound rating for my sides I am going to add in the HT room. http://www.ebay.com/itm/OmniMount-Sp...vip=true&rt=nc

Greetings,

I just got 2 Pioneer Premier Elite Receivers, the SC-05 and SC-65. I have the SC-05 hooked up to a set of Klipsch Qunitet's and a Klipsch 10 powered sub. Sounds decent but I want to add to it. I am considering the Klipsch Reference as well as Klipsch Premier series. I am going to start by adding a set of Bookshelf Speakers and then add a center channel, then floor speakers, etc..

I am torn between, Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-160, and Klipsch Reference RB-61 II. The cost is 600 for the Premiere Series and Crutchfield has the RB-61's for 349.99. I know the Premier's just came out, but do you guys think it is worth the extra cash to buy the Premiere's? I am going to move two quintet speakers currently used as front to the rear surround on the amp, then add the bookshelf's as the front. Then next I will replace the center channel.

Any advice offered is appreciated, and I do want to stick with Klipsch.

Best,
Jon

I did call WingIts and we talked about mounting speakers. The lady said to use a board mounted to the wall. She said to reinforce the top of the board due to the speaker depth. So, I figured two 300# anchors on top and one 300# anchor on the bottom. I was surprised that the Home Depot had Birch plywood.

I find it relevant, esp. if we are talking about Klipsch In fact, I'm thinking about reusing my front Quintet speakers (replaced by RP-280Fs) as my front overhead (ceiling mounted) for a 5.1.2 configuration once I pick up a new receiver. Thoughts guys?
