With my decor and color scheme here are the panels so you get idea. Most people that visit think these are just art panels like normal wall art and have no clue they are acoustic panels unless I tell them.
those panels are very nice looking actually. I understand why people don't notice that they are acoustic treatments.

It didn't matter if it was bikes or stereo equipment I was sell, I always told my customers that it was always cheaper to buy the right one first. Luckily for the speakers, our store had a 1 year upgrade policy. As long as the customer doubled the price of the originally purchased speakers, we would give them a full credit of the old speakers towards the new pair.

It took some people a while to figure out what I meant, but they eventually caught on.

It's all good now. The desire to upgrade is gone. I've got a setup I'll be happy with for a long time.

So, I'm not sure what day my RF-7 will be here. Does anybody think it would be weird to put a subwoofer on top of one of them?

awesome speaker Red,

Newbie question - My first HT build. Ended with klipsch R15 for my surrounds. I could not locate any grooves to mount the speakers to the walls or ceilings.. So is it ok to drill holes for brackets?? Also is it okay to put brackets on the top or sides?? Also what size screws should i use??

Thanks

That's incredible! I would think that a teenager to hear that good. I hear barely up to 12KHz.

Moral of the story....save up for the best one if you can be little patient. But if you can't tell the difference between any of them then save money....afterall you are the one watching movies on your setup, not us.
Yes, that's what I've decided. Probably not going to buy anything now, and buy
piece by piece scratch and dent as sales come along. Patience is one of many virtues I lack, but I'm going to force it this time.

You are better off putting the speaker on top of the sub than the other way around. I would imagine the sub is bigger than the speaker and fall off....not to mention would probably not sound that good.

No. But you can probably safely step down to 260s, since you I believe you are using a subwoofer.

Thanks. Yes I have an old M&K 12" 250 sub still kicking.

When I compare 280AF in front and 260 in back vs. 260 + 140AF in front and 250 in back the price difference is only $250. So I wanted to make sure since most posts that talk about 280s have much bigger rooms.

Also would you recommend 250s or 260s for surrounds, again price difference is only 250

Well, that probably depends on how loudly you play. My take on bookshelves, and by extension surrounds, is get the biggest. Right now, I have some RP 150 bookshelves in, and while they sound great at moderate levels, they are not handling the massive levels I listen to sometimes, and are distorting in the mid bass even crossed over at 80 Hz. If you get the bigger ones, they will be able to handle peaks better, imo. If you listen at sane levels, this might not be an issue. However, if you can afford the bigger ones, just get them.

On a side note my experience with the RP-150 makes me happy I got RF-82 II towers(same size as RP-280) because, crossed over at 80 Hz, they are handling everything I throw at them, and if I had gotten the bookshelves I thought I should have, I would probably be having the same mid bass distortion problem.

No....it will fill that room nicely. Someday they might be in a larger room, and you'll be glad you went with the 280s then. Great speakers.

Is there a general consensus on how much room is needed between the wall and the back of the RP-280F? I think I read one review saying they put at least 2 feet, but based on the depth of the speaker, I think I would only end up with about 6in to 1ft.
