They must be counting the diameter along the surface rather than across the opening, so the distance down into the center of the cone and back up to the other edge.

Someone said in amother post that is something to do with the size of the frame of the woofer. I measured my old 12" Cerwin Vegas and they were like 11" something, must be the standard

Quoting myself again for context...

I listened to Steven Wilson's new EP, 4 1/2, on BD (5.1 DTS-HD MA) last night. Sounded very very nice. But I wasn't familiar with that music (my first listen), so this morning I put on a bit of his last full-length album, Hand.Cannot.Erase., also on BD, and that sounded very very nice again. I'm quite happy with the RP-160Ms and RP-250C up front. I dunno if it is the placebo effect from hearing the previous set with the one bad tweeter, but this sounded very clear, more detailed than I was used to.

Or may be it was because it was a rare morning listening session, so I was drinking coffee in the AM, vs drinking wine or beer in the PM...

I also moved the front mains in towards the center - previously I had them fairly wide (about 80 deg spread vs the nominal 60 deg recommended). They were wider than "recommended" because some surround music mixes are true Quad, and sound better with wider fronts. So now they are about 70 deg apart, closer to the ideal for the center seat in the front row, and pretty much bang on 60 deg for the center seat in the back row. So depending on whether the music is mixed as "5.1" or "4.0" I might switch my listening position.

Superbowl is tomorrow night, so the new speakers will get a work out there with all the cheering when Denver wins.





I keed, I keed, I don't really care who wins, I like both teams, I just want a good game. Oh, and good commercials.

Oh yeah, as wvu80 said: Outstanding setup Mr. Henhrig!

Is anyone using RP240s on stands? If so, which stands? Looks like the RPs can be mounted on threaded 1/4 stands/mounts.

Thank you good sir,

Im very happy with it. Have been watching some of my favourite movies the last couple of days and can't believe what I'm hearing ( it could be placebo ) but I swear I am hearing things that I never heard in the movies before

Hey guys, I just started a thread about this issue, but still wanted to ask here as well
I have Klipsch Reference Premiere series 5.0 speakers:
RP 280F, RP 450C, RP 250S
Looking for speakers for Rear wall and in-ceiling.
In-ceiling I have a clarity about it.
but for Rear wall speakers , a pair of bipole is good or in-wall/bookshelf ? which one is preferred ? Need some suggestion.

Hi guys.
Would upgrading from the thx ultra 2's (650's) LCR to Klipsch pro series 325's be a significant improvement in terms of detail and imaging? I'm running a Yamaha 2040, but the LCR are powered by a Sunfire cinema grand at 200 watts per channel.
I've been running the 650's for 8 years now and wondering if there is something better out there now that could be purchased for around the same price I could get for my 650's? I've just recently found out about the pro series and am interested. Where does one look to purchase used pro series speakers?
My room is 24'x24' with 12' ceilings. I'm using a 136" AT screen. There is a 13'x10' room behind the wall the screen is on in which I have the front 3 and my sub. I sit 12' from the screen.
Advice or suggestions welcome.

How does everyone feel about a display on top of an RC64II? I assume its best to take two rubber bumpers and one adjustable leg off so it sits flat on the top of my low stand.
Display going on top is an LG OLED and it only weights 57lbs with the stand. Top of 64II is 11.5 " and stand is only 9.3" deep.

Thanks.

Mount that bad boy on the wall or build a box over the speaker.

Not sure I'd put any TV on a CC much less an expensive OLED.

Not going on the wall, their mount sucks.

Ive been look at a lot of images and can't see what the concern is with such a light display being on a RC64II. Its huge.

That's what I was thinking.

It would probably be ok on the speaker but wouldn't be something I'd want to do if avoidable.

Is that display committed to a certain wall mount for some reason or just don't want to wall mount?

Yep, LG mount... Its not setup well for my room and stud location, so I am going back to the stand. Problem is the 64II size!

Look on Crutchfield's site for some Q&A on that subject also.

Thanks.

Well your room is pretty I will try to mount it on wall like Sony was before i know that can be done. I just dont like look TV sitting on center channel. RC-64II will easilly hold that weight, just doesnt look right.

Wallmount is the only clean way to go. I'm sure there is a solution even with a bad stud location.

No one seems to recommend it but I have my sony 55" on my rc64ii and before that I had an lg 50" on my rc62ii, no issues at all on either.

I'm not big on wall mounting, so I went with this. Goes with my room design and being in California, it's earthquake proof too! Well, it won't fall over at least.

Hello everyone figured I'd ask this question here, I was browsing online for some used speakers and came across some beautiful rf7s he's asking 700 for the pair, so a couple questions. Are they worth it? And is there something I should look at while looking the speakers ?

If they are in good shape, 700.00 is a very fair asking price.
