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.

To speak to an earlier post about Klipsch and its perceived status (or lack thereof) in the audiophile world, I can tell you that I am the first to admit that I considered MANY other, "higher quality" speakers for my home theater. In the end, the Klipsch sound amazing, and while I may not know if the more expensive ones would sound better, it doesn't matter I love what I have! And that is all that is important. Too many folks on forums want to make you feel "less than" or as though whatever you decide, you made the wrong choice.

That said, I would not consider Klipsch for stereo listening, as the signature is not one I enjoy for music. I prefer B&W (which I have) and a few other brands. For home theater? Klipsch all the way, for me. Happy owner, here
I love my rf83 for 2ch music. Not your typical in your face sound but very smooth. Much much better than my rf82ii. But youre right for movies they kick *ss

In Ceiling Speakers

Hello everyone. I am currently building a house and had it prewired for 7.1 surround sound. The only option for speaker placement was in the ceiling, so I was looking at getting the CDT-3650-C II. Does anyone have experience with the ceiling speakers? In the showroom today they sounded a little muffled, but I was told it was because of the setup and how they are tied to a switch so of course the wire length in my house will be shorter. Also my living room setup is an open floorplan so not sure if that will be worse for ceiling speakers. I am hoping that I can change settings either with treble/bass or with the receiver to make it sound awesome. I have found nothing but awesome reviews for these speakers.


Also I was looking at receivers, and the cheapest one at the store I was at was the Pioneer-VSXLX101 but I currently have the Onkyo HT-S5100, so I was looking to upgrade to the Onkyo TX-NR757 (over the 747)

It just seems that going off specs that even the Pioneer is worse than the Onkyo I already have, and Onkyo seems to be the best bang for the buck. Any help would be appeciated.

In ceilings especially for the LCR are about the worst thing you can do for HT. Is there any possible way you can avoid this scenario?

I couldn't agree more violently!

I'd urge you to avoid in ceiling at all possible costs/efforts (cut some drywall to run wires so you can place speakers where YOU want, then patch the drywall....

Hi just wondering if there are any major differences between these 2 center channels and 2 bookshelf speakers? (Right now going 3.1 but will eventually set up 5.1) All movie watching no music.

Center channel
Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-250C
Klipsch Reference R-25C


BookShelf
Klipsch Reference R-15M
Klipsch Reference R-14M

I stopped by a Bestbuy and had a listen to a demo with the Klipsch speakers and they sounded good. Vocals were clear. These are going in my bedroom. Room is about 12x15. I live in a row home so I don't want something too overpowering. Right now I have these in my online shopping cart.
Denon AVR-S720W
Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-250C
Klipsch Reference R-10SW
Klipsch Reference R-15M

When I'm at my pc I'm about 6 ish feet away from the tv. When I'm in bed I'm about 13 feet away from the tv.

All together comes to about 1300

I'm trying to sort thru the 1726 pages but that's going to take a while.
Thanks for any help

So when I first "bought" this house, back in august, I told them to put the connections in the walls, in the corner towards the ceiling. Then a couple months later, I get a call from someone I'd never spoken to before asking about placement and was wondered if I wanted them in the ceiling and I said no that's not what I wanted and he said ok and would change the plans accordingly. Fast forward another couple months and I have the pre drywall meeting with a third person who I had never met and they had put them in the ceiling and I told them I didn't want them in the ceiling and he said thats what the plans said and that he couldnt move them and told he me used to work at the local A/V store and based on my floorplan It would be better if they were in the ceiling. Not sure if he was telling the truth, or if he just didnt want to get them to put them where I wanted them.
