How about let's not use this thread to sell speakers...? Please, take it to the classified ads area.

Turned out pretty good, just going to enjoy it for now. When I took the RC64 down to mess with it, I remembered how well that thing is built. That OLED is freakishly light, the stand weighs more than the panel it seems.

Wow I am very happy with the addition of the RP280FS as side surrounds! Watched Spectre last night and I noticed a huge improvement of the overall sound in my HT room now.

I would not have recommended it and would not have thought so...but the OLED Panel does not look bad on the 64...Congrats!

Just curious: Are you still happy with the FV15HP's?

Makes the display at a good height, and not wall mounting I was able to move it about 17" closer to our eyes.

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.
Anyone?

I purchased some additional Klipsch speakers last weekend and had to buy all of them (used) that the people had for sale.
I'm keeping most of them... but am wondering which tower speakers to put where... Also if I should sell any speakers if they aren't a good match for my system.

Here are my components:
Denon AVR-6200

the rest are all Klipsch
KG-5.2 (Pair of towers from college.... still sound great)
RC-62 (center channel)
SUB-12

below are my recently purchased speakers
RF-62 (pair of towers)
R-15M (side bookshelf)
RP-140SA (pair of Atmos)

I planned to put the 5.2's up front and the RF-62's in the back of the room. The R-15M to either side of the couch.... the Atmos speakers up front on top of the KG 5.2's.

Would appreciate some input.....

Does your TV not have the VESA mounting holes? I'm looking into getting one of these to get my RC-64ii closer to my plasma. The center just sits on top of the stand foot and you can adjust the height of the TV to suit.

These LG OLEDs use a proprietary mount. I could have used one I had and drilled some holes probably, but Im kinda liking how it looks now.

It looks pretty clean. I'm worried about little munchkins tipping over my TV if I were to try the same thing. The RC-64ii is built like a tank though!

Yeah, i checked it all out, its sturdy as hell. The display isn't heavy at all and the base is about 50% of the weight so it helps keep it firm.

My listening area is about 11.5'w by about 14' long (to back of couch) with an open area into the kitchen in the back. Unfortunately there's no room for rear speakers, so I'm limited to 5.1 (and atmos heights in the future). Also due to neighbors I'm limited to about -17db for movies.

For the centre I'm leaning towards the RP440c which looks like a pretty good bang for the buck upgrade over the RP250c alternative. Like the RP280's the RP450c is probably overkill for my needs.

My biggest question is about the RP240 surrounds. While most of the rear of the room is open, in the rear left there is a two foot wall/cabinet in the corner, so my left rear surround is in a corner parallel with the MLP. Is this going to be a problem with the one of the drivers firing towards a wall? It's obviously not ideal, but are the RP240's still a worthwhile upgrade over the direct firing R14s's?

Finally do the RP140 atmos modules fit on top of the RP260's? By the klipsch website measurements they should. They're still absurdly priced in Canada, but hopefully they come down in the future.
Any insight on the surrounds and my situation? I think I've changed my mind on the center and decided on the RP450c as the price difference is under $100 and my tv/entertainment stand can accommodate the size.

From what I hear the compression drivers and horns in the pro gear are substantially better than anything the consumer grade speakers have to offer. I think scrappy and a few others have the kpt 904 with a 3" compression driver in the horn compared to the 1" drivers in the thx.

450 definitely. Have you considered rp160m bookshelves for surrounds? I like monopoles over bi/dipoles. R15m are the lower grade models, dont get them if you can help it.

I would go with the RP450C if you can fit in your budget. I have been very happy with mine!

Hey everyone,

I am piecing together a system for my sister. For the fronts I was thinking RP-250F, RP-250C. Sub I'm not sure yet. My question is for the rear surrounds. The budget is limited and I was wondering if it would sound OK if the surrounds were from Klipsch but from their cheaper line. Something like Klipsch KS-14? Also with whichever I choose, for a square room would I put a pair of these bipole speakers on the rear wall and another pair on the side wall? I've never set up these types of surrounds before.

Also I could do RP-280F but wouldn't be able to get a subwoofer so I was thinking RP-250F with sub would be better. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the help

For movies you may get a better front soundstage using the rf62s with the rc62. If music is more a priority go with whatever mains sound better to you up front. I would use your 2nd choice as side surrounds and use the smaller cheaper speakers as surround backs.

I'd go for the RP-260's over the 250's, they're not much more $. I did a lot of reading on the mains and a few different sources mentioned there was little difference between the 280's and 260's unless you're really pushing them full out. In any case I would only get the 250's if space were a major issue and if that's the case you could get the bookshelves and reallocate the savings.

As for the surrounds I don't have personal experience with that model, but I'm sure they are fine unless your sister is a critical listener.

The bookshelves are too big for the space, one side is high traffic & only way into the room . My current surrounds are on stands with back of speaker flush to wall (wall mount studs don't line up very good) I was even hesitant on the 250S due to their size, although I could probably convince myself. Anyway I'm more concerned with how the dipoles work being parallel to the MLP and with no back wall except for the two foot "corner" on one side.

Thanks for the input Robbiey60

let's say I keep this sub.... what additional sub would complement it?

So you suggest using the bookshelf RM-15's at the very back of the room?

If you absolutely had to keep that sub another of the same would be the best bet. With unmatched multiple subs you are limited to the performance of the lesser quality sub. That is not to say mis-matched subs will not work but you are limited in performance.
A small enclosure with a 300w amp is only going to give so much. A true sub really is a different animal.
In regards to the surrounds and surround backs yes the side surrounds receive the majority of information in a 7ch mix and obviously all the information in a 5ch mix while the rear 2chs are derived from the side surrounds anyway. I always suggest the better of the 2 be used as side surrounds because they are the more important of the 2. Hope this helps.

The budget is limited and I was wondering if it would sound OK if the surrounds were from Klipsch but from their cheaper line. Something like Klipsch KS-14? Also with whichever I choose, for a square room would I put a pair of these bipole speakers on the rear wall and another pair on the side wall? I've never set up these types of surrounds before.

Also I could do RP-280F but wouldn't be able to get a subwoofer so I was thinking RP-250F with sub would be better. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the help
Rp260f are the better speaker and the rp250c will be fine. You dont have to get surround speakers for surrounds I would recommend r15m which is the lower models bookshelf speaker. My friend has these as surrounds and they do fine for what they are. Sub really depends on what you or your sister expect and want to spend.

In any case I would only get the 250's if space were a major issue and if that's the case you could get the bookshelves and reallocate the savings.

As for the surrounds I don't have personal experience with that model, but I'm sure they are fine unless your sister is a critical listener.


The bookshelves are too big for the space, one side is high traffic & only way into the room . My current surrounds are on stands with back of speaker flush to wall (wall mount studs don't line up very good) I was even hesitant on the 250S due to their size, although I could probably convince myself. Anyway I'm more concerned with how the dipoles work being parallel to the MLP and with no back wall except for the two foot "corner" on one side.
What about rp150m which are smaller. I have not seen the 250s, are they really smaller than a bookshelf speaker?

Thanks for asking that, I didn't realize the rp150m's were quite that small. I'm finding some conflicting measurements, but it looks like in terms of depth the rp150's would stick out from the wall more. Is the rear port against the wall an issue? It appears in the manual that they can be wall mounted against the wall

More to think about

As for the rp250's, when I looked in store they were significantly smaller than the 260's (the bookshelves weren't there to compare). That's why I suggested the bookshelves, take the savings from that and put it into a sub and you have a pretty good 5.1 system (with whatever cheap surrounds you buy). Especially since this is a system for someone else. The bookshelves also give you an upgrade path where you can get the bigger mains and move the bookshelves to surrounds.
