Oh yes and same with jumper cables vs brass plates. I'm sure there no sound differences. Just when you dusting behind looks there pretty serious😀😀😀

Thank you all, I appreciate the feedback. I think I will leave the speakers as is for now, I don't anticipate moving them much once I have the screen wall finally finished. I liked the grip that the speakers had with bare wire a little more than the banana clips.


My other question is that I'm running a pair of R115SW's off of a Denon 6300. Where should I start with the phase, low pass and gain? Right now I'm at Zero Degrees, LFE and slightly past half way on gain. I have each of them hooked up with 50 foot mediabridge subwoofer cables directly from the DVR into the L/LFE port on the back of the sub box.


I have yet to finish up installing everything in the theater, so I have not run Auddysey yet. I'd like to make sure the basic settings are in line with where they should be before I start tuning. Any other tips or suggestions would be appreciated. As of right now, we've played a little music and listened to an older DVD of the original Transformers and I'm thoroughly impressed with these speakers.

start with phase of 0 degrees and just get spl meter out and something like disney wow disk. If not have one you can just use your AVR for calibration. You want all speakers at 75db from AVR's test tones.

If both of your subs are at same location then you want to calibrate one sub at a time. Together you will get 3 to 6db with duals so maybe calibrate it as 72db each. If you want more bass just up the gain on the subs.

Those LaScala's look awesome my bother had a pair in the 80's with a McIntosh tube amp and pre/amp our dad owned. In the 90's he added a sub and it made a difference in that room. How much does the plant vibrate when you have the sub cranked up some?

Thank you for your detailed response ldgibson76, this helps a lot! I have been reading various opinions on extra amplification at moderate levels (some say they hear SQ improvements), the 450c and 64ii, and trying to filter reality with opinion.... but what you have stated reinforces my gut feeling.

I think this comment has a lot of merit.... with the RP-450C, I really do hear the subtle differences in recording quality as some material sounds great, other muffled and/or unrealistic which bothers me.

That is to buy a 3 channel amp from a retailer with a generous return policy and see if there's an improvement across the front channels, especially the center performance. If you can discern a difference and it's a positive difference, stay with the 450C. Not only that, it's the less expensive option vs. buying an RC-64II.
I live in Canada, and choices are limited... especially with a generous return policy. Almost everything is special order, then non-refundable because it was 'special order'. I do have an older RX-V657 that I could use as a dedicated centre amp, I will see if there is any improvements (if I can get it to work). The 64iii will be out later this year, the horn material is similar to the RP series but tweeter is 1.75" over the 450C 1". Might be a closer sound to the RP and easier to EQ with the RP-280F's, and (hopefully) won't be special order allowing me to trial it.

The wife and son are gone this weekend, so I will play with the PEq a bit more and see if I can flatten the response curve further to make it more palatable with a wider range of material.

Thanks for the pic, I think I can handle the size difference in my current set-up, just won't be able to angle the centre up as far!

They dont move... the pictures on the walls shake, but the sub itself is very stable. I really think the plants like the vibrations

And no... I dont water the plants while they are on the speakers

To the posters with an RF82ii and RC62ii setup - I replaced my KG 4.2 and KV3 with these and im almost shocked how much brighter they are. To the point, im hearing some harshness in highs, particularly in voices on certain programs (id say in about half of the tv programs and movies ive watched so far) that I dont remember hearing before. Do these mellow out after a little breakin period? I know Klipsch are bright, but Im definitely going to have to get used to these. By no means am i disappointed, just surprised i guess.
