Hi, I recently upgraded my front speakers from dali zensor1 to klipsch rb61 ii and I am bit disappointed. The dali, I don't know, sounded just better, not sure how to explain it. Unless I raise the volume a lot on the rb61, they just don't sound anything like the dali. Both speakers are considered bright so I don't think that is it. Even when I play the music as two channel at relative low volume I am not that impressed with the rb61. Is my receiver under powered or are the characteristics of these speakers that different? Can it be a configuration issue?

Here is my configuration
3.1 configuration
Room, 7m x5m
Receiver yamaha rx475
Front klipsch rb61
Center dali vokal center
Sub warefendale
sw150

I have the speaker set to small and cross at 60. The back of rb are cross amped.

Watched balckhat last night.
I really didn't like it. Lol
Audio was horrible to me and didn't really keep me interested either.

I would expect the Dali to sound better in movies currently since they are a match for your center. The klipsch plus that center probably doesn't blend as pleasantly. As for 2 channel, that's a different story, and you may simply like the dalis more. Have you run any room correction since getting the klipsch? Did you run any with the Dali speakers?

I have a pair of RB61II's for a two channel setup. I run them as large full range. Don't bi-amp them that is useless as they are sensitive speakers and don't need much power to open up. I actually am very impressed at what they can do.

Lol I hear that. I might try to snag them just because. WAF would be low on these in the living room but they could be a bad ass pair of shop speakers [emoji41] [emoji41]

yeah there's no way i could get them in there. lol
it was hard enough to get approval for the marty sub lol
she would be mad enough if i came home with even MORE speakers lol.
the shop/basement/garage thing i have however is anything goes. this is where i will eventually build a dedicated theater.

Hi,


I'm back to the drawing board with which dual-subs to pick up...



  1. SVS PB-2000
  2. PSA XV15SE
  3. Rythmik F12G
I will be putting together a Klipsch package with a Yamaha receiver...
  1. Klipsch RP-280F towers
  2. Klipsch RP-450C center
  3. Klipsch RP-250S surround
  4. Yamaha RX-V677 7.2-channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver with AirPlay
All suggestions/comments/feedback/tips & tricks are welcome. I'm confused with which one to pickup and hence looking for advice.


Regards,
Paras
