I need some advice. My current set up consists of the following components.

Yamaha RX-V773
Klipsch
2ea RF 82II
one RC-62II
2 ea RS-52II
SVS sub woofer:
PB 13 Ultra
components connected to the system,
Verizion FIOS set top box
HTPC/Gaming PC,
PS 4 used for gaming and watching, Netflix, Amazon Prime video, and HBO GO programing.
PS 3 for gaming
and occasionally an Nvidia Shield Tablet or my Samsung Galaxy Note 4

I purchased these speakers last year about this time and could not afford to purchase more than this 5.1 set up, I now am able to add some additional speakers to complete a 7.1 or a 7.1+2 (the +2 are a couple of presence speakers that are placed high, above the HDTV)
I noticed that Klipsch has introduced new speakers and have discontinued the RF 82II's etc. however the place where I purchased the Klipsch speakers from still has some of them in stock. What would you recommend for the side channel speakers? So far I have been looking at perhaps a couple of RF 81's (book shelf speakers) but have also considered another set of the RF 82's. I know that for a normal home theater set up that they are probably too much speaker for the side channels, however the reason I have been thinking about getting them is because along with using them for home cinema, I game a lot and also listen to a lot of music. My Yamaha receiver has a setting called 7.1 stereo, when this is selected it splits your 5.1 or 7.1 speaker set up into L and R channels but also uses your sub woofer for the base. I have a large room so was thinking that maybe having another set of the RF 82's would be great when listening to music. If I decide to add a pair of presence speakers what would you recommend? perhaps a pair of the smaller book shelf speakers I think they are RF 41II. The way the Yamaha handles the presence speakers is when you have something that is in the upper front sound field, say an aircraft flying over head, it outputs the sound first in the front presence speakers and then rapidly switches to the rear L and R speakers. When there is nothing going on in the upper areas of the sound field then the presence speakers are not used.

I am really glad that I followed the advice I received here last year, I was considering getting RF 62's with a rather small sub (in comparison to the PB 13 Ultra) but after giving it a lot of thought I am glad I made the purchase that I did. I have a rather large room, 15.5' x 36'. There are probably better subs out there but would have cost a lot more. So far my expectations with respect to the systems performance has been greatly exceeded regardless of what I am using them for. I am especially pleased with them when gaming and even when watching movies etc. I love lots of bass and the combination of the front RF 82's along with the SVS sub fills my room. Some movies and games wind up startling me and other people in the room, when watching a program or movie and especially games where there are explosions and gunfire makes you feel that you are in the middle of a war. My favorite Blue Ray movie for its audio quality has to be Master and Commander.

Thanks for any advice you can give with respect to the additional speakers.
Robert
Welcome back!

If I were in your position, I would buy the RF-82 II's and put them as rear surrounds. Put the RS-52 II's on the sides.

This is the best option for 7 channel stereo, but for DD (movie)formats you would be better having the 82's on the sides and the rs as rears, as more content gets sent to the sides than the rears. Personally I would do as Mongo suggested, if the majority of listening is 7 ch stereo


Really with that set up it will sound great either way

For sure,the rb61 has a 90x60˚ dispersion but considering the upgrade from KB-15's I can live with it on it's side for now.

Sub wise,I'm going back and forth on this one,no thanks to some of you.

If I go Marty I'll have to go all out,there is no point on half assing a DIY project.
The problem is the wait,can I hold off for 6months...or have a very capable sub now...

Funny that my wife helped me carry them into the house but she did give me that look and said hey these are WAY bigger than the RF62II's!! She actually helped me get them out of the boxes and into their new resting spots. She's a keeper!!

I plan to either move to my office an run a 2 ch setup, or move upstairs and put a 5.1 setup in my kid's game room. May do the office first and move upstairs later - my oldest is only 4, lol.

I can't complain about wife at all, she is in to HT like I'm. Always helped me to unwrap boxes and helping with set up, like week ago we mount together brand new 65" TV for out HT system so with rest set up all set now. Only what she doesn't like is all that time with correct set up, she want to unwrap, plug in and enjoy.
