My sides (temp) are old Klipsch KSB 1.1 that just are TOO small for the other speakers in my 5.2. I have to wall or ceiling mount so waiting on better sides.


How far above your seating position are the surrounds?

My rear surrounds are about 2 feet above but my side surrounds are about 4 feet above because I have to accommodate a door on one side and window on the other.

Today, I'm 55 and have owned them for 36 years so, 36/55= 65.45% of my life has been shared with this specific pair of speakers.
I was 17 in 1980 when I got my La Scala and am now 51; so 34 years for exactly 2/3 or 67%.

Hi everyone!!! With my weekend company departed, I finally had a few hours to install my 7/64's yesterday. But first I decided to extend my speaker stage (proscenium?) outward a bit to accommodate the 7's and the subs better. Now, I'll need more carpet to cover it. You may recall from my previous post that the speakers arrived from SD in fine condition and that I am extremely happy with the cherry finish. For this post, I would like to share my first/initial listening impressions compared to my 82/62's. Bear in mind that I have not yet run Audyssey MultEQ XT (Onkyo 809) or AccuEQ (Onkyo 636) but fully intend to as time permits over the next few days...oh and speakers are XO'd at 80Hz. Since I'm primarily a movie person (80/20), I began with dialogue and LFE demo material.

Movies: I popped in familiar movie (LOTR, SW, etc.) material containing dialogue intensive material with Cate Blanchett and James Earl Jones. In each case, timbre matching, clarity, and voice definition were outstanding and IMO slightly improved over the 82/62's Where the 64 shined a bit more was in horizontal dispersion which is expected due to its added drivers and wider design stance. This benefited my arrangement as I have two rows of three theater seats across. I then popped in the usual LFE suspects (WOTW, FOTP, Pulse, Tron, etc.). Crossed at 80Hz, the 7/64's performed flawlessly and seamlessly as did the 82/62's. But in reality, the subs do the heavy lifting here.

Music: I popped in CD's I haven't listened to in many years...Dave Grusin, Madonna, Kenny G, Pink Floyd, Diana Krall, Billy Joel, Celine, Chicago, Elton John, etc (Yes, I'm over 50) To my pleasant surprise, their performances were spectacularly live...presence, clarity, definition! The more power I applied, the more it filled my 4800 cu ft room with more and more volume while still maintaining clarity. These have me thinking about external amps! The 82/62's are very good but IMO the 7/64's are outstanding! As an experiment, I decided to set my AVR to direct...L&R only....minus sub. To my astonishment, the 7's 10" drivers delivered bass incredibly well...deep, tight and well defined. In fact, I now prefer to listen to music sans subs. Even more surprising, I believe my listening habits will migrate to 60/40! The ultimate compliment, however, was from my wife who came downstairs to say "Those new speakers really sound good upstairs!" Enough said!

Overall Impressions: The 7/64's have a deserving reputation. Because of the 7's larger drivers and tweeter, it plays and sounds big for both movies and music...well suited for my ears and space. I am very pleased that I've acquired this set (Thanks again Retro!)...especially at the current pricing....and am probably cured of upgrade-itis for a long time.

I just realized that by default, I should also acknowledge gadgtfreek for this RF-7 II/RC-64 II momentum we're on...especially the Eric@SD deal! But I'm also keeping an eye, with interest, on what you're going to do with respect to PSA's V3600!

I wonder if they are putting them on sale to get more users in the market making comments because the conversation below went on last year on the Klipsch Forum:

tkdamerica, on 02 Nov 2014 - 1:23 PM, said:
Jay L, on 01 Nov 2014 - 7:54 PM, said:If you really like the RSW-15, I urge you to try the new R-115SW. It will go toe to toe with the elder beast. I would even say it sounds better in a musical sense.
I am biased though as I was completely entrenched in all the new subwoofers released this fall. This coming from a person that owns t
wo "modified" RSW-15s ...


Now that is interesting....At the time of the RSW-15's introduction they were considered to be one of the most musical subs on the market--If the R-115SW can accomplish that at half the price then that IS an accomplishment.


I would be interested in hearing any other RSW-15 owners who upgrade to the R-115SW opinions. That really seems like it could give those ID companies a run for their money!

Congrats Man, that's a spectacular HT in your pic. Nice write up about the 7/64 combo.
