The R-115sw do pack a punch.

Several of my friends have SVS, Mike has the PB Ultra 13(4 KLF20/C7and Jim has the tall cylinder with 2 Cornwalls,Hersey,RS7 center. IMHO I like the cylinder just a small amount better for movies and the PB 13 Ultra for music (for sure) with all the ports removed.YMMV It's not shabby for movies ( much better then 2 of my older Klipsch) when adjusted correctly and positioned so you FEEL the bass/LFE on movies. Mike's huge open room has tile flooring so it takes two of us slide it around on a strip of carpet. I am 6' 3" 205 and Mike is taller then me and it was we could do move from his truck bed into the house. It truly is VERY musical. My 2 old Klipsch Synergy Sub 12" (300/650 watt down firing) are just one hit wonders but two of them with front Cornwalls it NOT shabby. Close enough I have not gone in debt for a $1,500.00 sub. I would like to have this Danley DTS 10 folded horn bass bin for a sub if I had a larger room and the $$. Just no room for it and not really room for that SVS without changing seating, which I need to do.

So, I bought the 83/64's. You'll love them!
Still waiting aagh! Yea I love my 82iis but have always wanted rf7, rf83 or rf7ii. Where I live new is very expensive and 2nd hand almost non-existent. These are only the 3rd pair of 83s I have ever seen since I became aware of klipsch and the price while expensive compared to US pricing was an absolute bargain for me. My system will be slightly mismatched with rf83 mains, rc64ii center, rf82ii surrounds and rc62ii rear surrounds but you know what? I will still be more than happy!!

rc62ii or rs62ii for rears? Lol
Although vertically mounted centers would look cool. [emoji1]

Yup you read it right, I currently run twin rc62iis as surrounds. They do very well but I prefer towers as surrounds, and the 2 rc62iis will be surruond backs.

That's pretty cool. Did you mount them vertically some how?
I've always pictured 4 rc64ii's recessed vertically into my walls as surround sides and rears. Lol

Getting the boxes in the room is really the hard part. You open the top of the box, install the feet, and then gently drop the box on its side and rotate it up to the "bottom" side of the box (it will be upside down). The other problem may be if your ceilings are 9 feet. You have to lean (with help) the box to a 45 degree angle to be able to pull the box off of the speaker that is sitting on the ground.

Once the boxes are removed, you can sort of "walk" the speakers - hopefully on carpet - to their spots. The center comes out of the box simply, but manhandling it to a higher spot, might require help.

Man! I wish I could get new speakers EVERYDAY!!

The RF7ls are 27 lbs heavier than the RF82lls. I'll bet you can handle it.

I'm sure you'll be very happy with the 83's in your system. I have a very odd combination of Klipsch speakers for my 7.1 setup (see my sig), but I smile every single time I fire 'em up!!

Not really Klipsch related...but they're in the picture at least! I purchased a new TV stand from Boltz to replace my VTI stand and I'm really happy with it. It keeps my TV secure as I was really afraid a decent quake would send it crashing on top of my center channel speaker. And no, I am not a fan of wall mounting TVs at all for a number of reasons.

How does that RC-64 sound on the floor? I know I had my RC-62 on the floor and I was having problems with it. Bought an expensive stand just to get it a tad higher. One of my road blocks to ever getting an RC-64 is the $500 stand I bought would be useless. So I'd have to go out of my way buying a whole new stand again.

It sounds great. The stand I'm using is adjustable in terms of speaker angle. I've had quite a few folks over for movie viewing and music listening and nobody has ever commented on the front channel sounding off or weird.

I really like your setup, especially with the dual SB's. Now just get yourself an XMC-1 to match with the XPA-5
