I thought Youtube applies a filter on all audio above 15khz.

Video games are notorious for terrible audio quality, however I was under the impression that GTAV had decent sound quality.

I heard several clicking noises throughout the video. Both speakers seem to be doing it. At first I only heard about the 3 clicks from the 1500-2000 range. Then I turned the volume up to -20 and heard even more clicks throughout the video. The noise is coming from both speakers.

I only notice is it after I complete a mission/race/etc. There's like a crashing sound when it shows your character standing. That's when I hear the distortion.

I listened to RP-260F and I liked it. Question, is it worth to pay more for 280? My room is 13x16 ft(4x5m). What would I gain, stronger bass? When I listened to 260s, they had plenty. Anything else 280 vs 260?

mal, always get the biggest speakers for the front stage you can afford and accommodate.

Lol did not even know, cheers.
Out of curiosity, I measured the relative horn sizes. The R28F is 5.75 inches square, the R26F is 4.5 inches square, and the R15M and R25C are 3.75 inches square. That's measuring to where the horn meets the baffle and not the edges of the horn assembly where they're drilled into the baffle. So, for you Klipsch horn experts here, what does horn size in general mean for sound quality, sensitivity, extension, clarity, etc? It's hard to tell these things in a store environment, though I have my impressions

Need some opinions.

Looking to buy a sub for a bedroom. Found a Klipsch rd -12w used in excellent condition $225. That price sound fair to you guy's? He's firm.

Used to have the rd-10w and liked it.


Thanks

Generally larger horns are better, its not just horns but compression driver size and material also. My rf82ii have 6'' horns as do my rf83, rf82ii has a 1'' driver and rf83 have a 1.25'' driver. Same horn size but rf83 are a lot better. Also my rc64ii has both larger horn and larger driver- 8'' horn with 1.75'' driver. Sounds somewhat brighter than rf83.

Since I need to run Audyssey again after I install my RS-62's, I've been mulling over the toe in of my RF-7's. Right now I have them directed right at the MLP, but I'm curious about other placements. So RF-7 owners, what do you find is the optimal toe in and why?

I'm coming from a classic 7.1 setup with RS-42ii side surrounds and direct fire (RB-51ii) rear surrounds.

To go 5.1.4, I'm thinking of first moving my direct fire rear surrounds to ear-level surround duty. I'm then thinking of buying another matching pair of RS-42ii and using the old pair and the new pair on the ceiling... Completing the 5.1.4.

Consider... The dipoles seem like a decent choice for ceiling mount - wide dispersion. They're also well matched to all my other speakers. Plus, (and perhaps most importantly) doing it this way, I only have to buy two new speakers (which are available at clearance prices).

Are there any potential issues with this I may not have considered?

Slowly building my system. So far I got a pair of RF-82ii's, a RC-62ii, and a pair of RB-51ii's. Might try to get RB-81ii's and maybe some RS-52ii's. I can't decide on a subwoofer. I like the R-115SW for the low price you can actually buy it at. I know there's better options if I increase my budget a little bit.

These were going to be used in the living room, but ended up just going with a 2.1 system.

I got my RS-62 II's today! I wish there were better options for speaker mounts that can hold 20 plus pounds. I had to purchase two different mounts that I could bolt together to achieve what I needed. I will post some pictures this weekend when I set it up.
