Oh yes tell her they must send you by accident bigger one. No seriously you will be happy with it no question. Better to get it now a specially with deal then get 12" and later you will be wondering what if and try to sell 12" to get 15". Did you try to call dealers like Sound Distributors to find out if they can give you better deal for LCR plus 15" sub vs get sub free but pay MSRP for LCR?

Help!

I have a full atmos enabled set up
Running klipsch rp 280fa towers in front
And 140 rp's on top of the 260's.

Now I wanna go in wall but I don't wanna lose too much sound qaulity.

I tried out the in wall r-5626 which was okay
But I've been trying out the in wall R-5800 an wow, they sound as good as the 260 towers.

During this time I mounted the 140rps high on the side wall for better atmos, do you recommend this?
It's actually worked really well.

So I was thinking going in wall R-5800 for surrounds
And the in ceiling cdt-5800's for atmos in the rears
And keep my 280fa's in front?
Or should I go in ceiling cdt-5800s for front atmos too?
Can you run atmos enabled and in ceiling atmos at the same time

Significant difference between the 2650 and 5800...different class of tweeter and driver...and twice the price.

I believe the RP-140SA's were originally designed as Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers (DAES)...or reflective speakers. When other manufacturer's (i.e. SVS) introduced DAES type speakers, the term "elevation" speaker came into play...and depending on orientation, could be utilized as reflective or direct radiating speakers...and it appears that Klipsch is now marketing the 140's as "elevation" speakers as well. In any case, in answer to your question, other enthusiasts in these threads have used the 140's as direct radiating speakers either high on their walls or at the wall and ceiling juncture with very acceptable performance. In fact, these are Dolby accepted configurations...particularly when used as Front Heights (FH) and Rear Heights (RH).

A combination of direct radiating and reflective speakers for Atmos is likely not a recommended configuration. I'm not an SME but theory would suggest that there will be adverse effects due to timing and phase differences. In some cases, this may not matter, but the intent/idea is to reproduce sound objects in space as the director and sound mixer intended. The intended effects would obviously be lost/diffused if the intended sound(s) reached the listener's ears at different times. Conventional wisdom likely dictates keeping apples to apples. As a suggestion, you may want to visit the Atmos thread as there are SME's and folks there who have had to improvise due to various room/environmental constraints. Good luck in search of your solution!

@ultraflexed I agree with @Gene4th answer plus like he said Atmost thread is definitelly more helpful. I use only FH for Atmos now. I want to get better Atmos set up but kind of still didn't dig deep in to this yet. I been focusing more on 4K.

A foot. Sounds simple, a mere 12", right?

Here's my setup with my R28Fs and my 17" deep console. Imagine scooting these out a whole foot from the wall.

No thanks. I want speakers I can at least leave flush with my media console and still sound great. And they do.

Cheers!

I am now the proud owner of 4 book shelf speakers and a subwoofer! Yeah.

Happy as I am, some things are not optimal yet, who can help me with my questions?

  1. Rarely and at random times, I have no sound for <1 second. What causes this?
  2. And what can I do about it?
  3. What does the Corner / Wall / Other settings for my subwoofer actually do? I'm not sure I have noticed a difference yet.
  4. Is there as of today 1 firmware update? I downloaded it from the official Klipsch website.
Thank you.

Imagine placing them on the rug a foot or two out? OK done... Sorry, not seeing the domesticated nightmare you are, but I'm not there. Generally speaking unless the speakers are built for flush placement you're likely getting some cancelation from the rear wall. Not to mention also reflections from the console. Consoles, like coffee tables can wreak havoc on your sound stage and imaging.

Are you using any sort of room correction? Audyssey etc?

Nice room. I can see why you wouldn't want them pulled out 12". But they are rear ported, and they need to breathe. Have you tried to play around with moving them a little? Sometimes just an inch or two can make a difference.

What if you moved them out to the edge of the rug, about 2-3"
Can you move the whole setup away from the wall, maybe 4"
We don't see the rest of the room, where your seating position is, can you spread them out some and toe them in?

It's fun to play with placement. My wife didn't comprehend why I keep saying I need more room for these speakers! After I found what I thought was the best placement for my speakers, I had my wife sit in the MLP. She listened to some music, I then had her sit on a cushion, raising her up about 4", she couldn't believe the difference in sound.

Just play with it..good luck....let us know.

Congrats. What are you powering these with? It sounds like a receiver/avr setup issue. Have you checked all the wiring and connections? Do all the speakers quit at once? Have you tried switches speakers or wiring? AVR room correction?

Hi! The speakers are all connected to a wall socket or socket block (not sure what's it called in English). Regarding connections:

Xbox One S --> Directly into TV (HDMI 1)
Humax --> Directly into TV (HDMI 2)
Klipsch Hub --> Directly into TV (HDMI 3 ARC)
TV --> Klipsch Hub with Optical

Why the optical connection? This proved to be more reliable than the HDMI 3 ARC for sound - but it's still not perfect.

I have the LG 55UH605V.

The reason I don't use my Klipsch to pass through video is that there is no HDR support as I'm aware. And I use my Xbox One S both for gaming and watching 4K video - which both have HDR in many cases.

Regarding the issue: everything quits at once and is off for 2 seconds max. Almost always comes back immediately. Something I can JUST hear right coming first and then left or the other way around.

Hope this helps.
