Would I get the same effects?



Run Audyssey again and see if it can blend it all together.

That said, you'll be perfectly satisfied with the RP-260F or 280F in your room. The 280 with a touch more low end. From a sound perspective, neither is too large as long as you can get a good 8-10 back from the speakers and get them 8-10 feet apart.
Klipsch horns are the divine source lol!

those need to be angled more at about 110 degrees. Here is a pic in relation of my seats to the surrounds.

But they will have the same effect as the surrounds?


Just to make sure you know what I'm doing. I'm removing the infinity speaker and keeping the klipsch.

They're fine there. We can only work with what we have to work with. My surrounds are mounted on a wall behind me.

This is with the RF-82II and RB-61II, so RF-7II and RB-81II will replace those. Have a 138" projector on the way also.

I will say this setup is insane also but adding in another row of seats do why not update everything Lol

Look really really nice. It will sound even better then before. I agree why not to get them if you can still get new ones. Who know how long RB-81II will be still available. I'm thinking to get pair bookshelf for baby room so my 2 years old can listen her movies or music in good stereo vs flat screen speakers 😀😀😀

since we are talking about proper or lack of 5.1 side/rear placement......its all personal choice really. I tried to follow dolby's recommendations best I could since my couch is close to the rear wall and didn't want to compromise anything and I found 110 degree from MLP sounded really good to me with drivers toed more in front of room as opposed to facing directly at me. Here are my side/rears in 5.2 layout. These are the RP 160Ms by the way.

One may wonder why my left speaker is out at hallway and not at end of couch like other one. Well.....my MLP is usually at the end of couch at hallway side (I need armrest for my beer). These gives me even spacing on both sides.

110 degrees for surrounds is perfect

I was going to say that also, I have found 16-18" above head are best, but my surrounds are 14ft away

I've finally decided and I'm ordering a pair of RP-280FA, an RP-440C and a pair of RP-240S this week.

Do you think the Yamaha A2060 will be able to handle a 5.1.2 setup or should I look at an external amp like an Emotiva XPA-3 or A-700/A-500 to run L,C,R and leave everything else to it?

My HT use is 95% movies/tv shows and a 5% music at around -15 to -20db.

Panasonic 55CX700 - Pioneer Elite SC-55 - OPPO BDP-93 - Mac Mini 2014 running Libreelec 7.0.2
Klipsch RF-52 II, RC-52 II, RS-42 II, SW-308 - QNAP 453 mini

Wishlist: Yamaha RX-A2060 ✅ - SVS PC-2000 ✅- Oppo BDP-203 - Klipsch RP-280FA - RP-440C - RP-240S - Nvidia Shield

I want to go from a 5.1 setup to a 7.1 setup. I currently use a pair of RB 51 iis as my surrounds. I can't seem to find two more of those for my surround backs...any reason I can't use a pair of R-15ms?

Run your everything as "small" to let the sub handle the low end and you should be fine. You can always add the external amp later if you find that you need it/want to experiment. I run a 9.1 setup with a Yamaha A3030 and have zero complaints (other than when my family tells me to turn it down).

@Sevastos I would get the 450CA. It's the match for the 280FA.
