Haha, that's good. She'll know soon huh?

The only thing my wife said about any of this equipment is the speakers are pretty!
My reply was "PRETTY FREAKIN AWESOME"

This when you say "No babe, you are pretty", and then write the check for Palladiums! I know didn't work for me either

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and new to the would of quality audio. I recently was able to purchase two Klipsch RF-82 II's, and a RC-62 II (the seller bought the wrong one's he wanted the premier's) off craigslist new in box for $800 for the lot which was just too good to pass up. I have to say I'm absolutely glad I did! I previously had Polk monitor 2's and these blow them out of the water. I was also able to get a Sony STR DN1050 reciever throught my works reward program so my home theater upgrade is going along quite well and for a lot less than I thought.

I do have a few questions on where to go from here though. Let me give you guys some basics of what I'm looking for and my room situation;

1) Budget: 2-3k with wiggle room just need to sell it to the wife.
2) Your listening interests: primarily movies and television with some gaming.
3) Your existing audio equipment (make/models) if any:
Klipsch RF-82 II's.
Klipsch RC-62.
Sony STR DN1050 receiver.
70in Vizio M702i-B3.
Apple TV, Sony Blu-Ray, Cisco DVR.
4) The size of your room: 14ft x 14ft x 9ft which opens up to my kitchen/dining area (open floor plan)
5) Any placement restrictions: Only one subwoofer for now (have to sell the wife on adding a second)
6) Any aesthetic or size concerns: None.
7) Any equipment you are already considering: SVS PC 12+ subwoofer, Klipsch RS-62 II x2 or RB-62 II x2 or CDT-5800C II x2.

My ceiling is already pre-wired with 4 spots that I can add in ceiling speakers (two up front by my television, two above my seating area) so my question is what should I do to finalize out my speaker upgrade? I could do 4 CDT-5800C II's that my house is pre-wired for but I am concerned about my surrounds being in the ceiling (not sure how it would sound). I was also looking at doing 2 RS-62 II's next to my couch on stands or 2 RB-62 II's in the same position (I can't wall mount them because of a huge window behind my couch). If that is the case which would be better for surrounds RS-62 II's or RB-62 II's? If I do go the RS/RB route should I add a pair of CDT-5800C II's in the front or rear to do a 7.1 system? (I checked my reciever can do front heights). Also I've been doing some research but I'm not sure how these speakers will mesh with my current RF-82 II's and RC-62 II? (I'm open to suggestions). Finally how do you guys think the SVS PC 12+ will preform with my current set up and room?

I'm not sure if this was the fully correct area to post this but I do plan on adding on mainly Klipsch products so I figured it would be a good area to start. I have to say I am extremely happy with my switch from Polk to Klipsch even though it was not really a fair fight lol. Any advice would be appreciated thanks!
Hello and welcome.
I thought I would offer a different opinion as I see you mentioned gaming. I would forget about ceiling mounted anything for now, you definitely do not want ceiling surrounds anyway. I have no interest in bipole or dipole surrounds. For gaming you want sounds to be directional, not dispersed. You want to know where that creature is behind you or what direction that gunfire is coming from. In saying that, a properly implemented 5 or 6 ch setup should provide 360degree imaging so you get directional when needed and then panoramic imaging when required. Oh and did I mention movies give the same effect, the speakers will image the sounds anywhere in the room. My choice would be towers for surrounds, if that is not possible go rb81 or rb61. You may also consider a center surround like I had/will have for better rear channel imaging.

That's the beginning of a nice system there! Just be aware that your bookshelf on its side will have a different dispersion pattern for the tweeter as the horn is not equal like the newer premiere line. If you crave bass have you considered diy? I never did until I heard or rather felt the bass from a BIG box. I don't think I had heard anything below 30hz either.

Quick question:

I have a pair of R-28F's and I'm looking into a great center channel speaker. I'm looking at the RC-62II and the RP-440C. Has anyone heard the new center that can give me a comparison to the RC-62II's? The rep from Klipsch said that the RP-440C would be compared to the RC-62II's with the quad 4" woofers, but I just wanted to get feedback from people that have actually heard both and can give a fair comparison.

Scrappydue has auditioned most of the Klipsch lineup and will tell you that he prefers the RC-62 over the new 440C.

My guess the same with the "crotch rockets" too not many wife's put up worrying about us getting hurt riding a Fast motorcycle much less racing one on the track etc. I got lucky my wife loves the Klipsch and is still in "The What Ever" it takes mode after 28 years.
