I wish I had room in my small 7X14 den for a wide screen projector. With Cornwalls for fronts and 55" LCD/LED between them and a sub it's wall to wall with speakers and a TV. With just 7 ft across and we set 7 ft back with rears 7 ft behind up on the wall and sides (on stands) 3 ft each side of HT chairs. It sounds really crowed for a 7.2 but it's great sounding and the 55" has been great for 8 years now. I keep thinking it will die any day and I can swing a 60" and go 4K. When I am finally done with motorcycles I am remodeling my attached two car garage to my HT/Stereo room then a projector.

You guys have any thoughts on the Heresy III's in a Dolby Atmos setup? Or if its even possible.

I already have a great 2 channel room. Wanting to get back into HT again. Used to own the Heresy's and loved them. Got a buddy selling his 3 Heresy LCRs. But they are about 9 years old. Just not sure...guess it depends on cost.

Louis...you don't necessarily have to wait...the garage theater can be version #2 Great things have been accomplished in a space (100sf) similar to yours! Hope this provides encouragement!

Hi guys just bought a big Klipsch 7 speaker setup.

RF-7 II
RC-64 II
RP 250S
RP 160M

I usually just resell speakers (paid $3k for all from adorama, I think the deal is over) BUT I am wondering if this setup could be better then y current setup which is a Focal Chorus setup that includes

Focal 836 towers
800c center
806 bookshelfs
816 smaller towers and a klipsch 15" sub.

I know my focal setup is supposed to be very good but I dont know about the RF7's

What would you think?

It looks like the Klipsches will be more efficient, (surprise, surprise), probably play louder. Plus, some of them are made in America, which is cool. Those Klipsches are really good, but Focal has a good rep, as far as I know. My guess this would totally come down to personal preference of which sound signature you like best. Certainly worth trying, everyone here that has the RF-7II loves them.

Only you can make that decision. Since you ordered the Klipsch....just play it next to your focals and decide which you like best. Just make sure you properly calibrate it same as your focals and just play a movie scene or two of your favorites and see which you prefer. Same thing for music listening. Both are great speakers, just both have different sound signatures.

okay guys getting ready to move and have some cash left over for a small upgrade to the sound for my theater at the new house. Right I'm looking to go with epson 2040 and silver ticket screen which leaves me some cash for the upgrade on sound and currently I have all Best Buy Klipsch stuff and wanting to upgrade with my budget now and talking to Klipsch dealer I can either move my R-28 towers to surround duty and upgrade to 280F's or go with 450c w/ 112 sub, or all in on rc-64ii. What would you upgrade first?

FYI looks like Amazon has 20% off on much of the RP line right now. Ship/sold by Amazon, not third party.

Klipsch has the same deal through their website except for the RP-260F is not on sale which isn't on sale on amazon either. Now Amazon has a better deal on the RP-280FA's. They are around 33% off on Amazon where as on ?Klipsch site they are 20% off.

Wish I needed front speakers.

The RP bookshelves and centers appear to be on sale at Amazon only. That being said you can get an even better deal by calling some authorized dealers mentioned in this thread. I got a great deal on RP-160Ms and P-450C from acoustic sound design.

Sorry I just meant there are only a few items Klipsch directly has on sale whereas much of the RP line is on sale at Amazon.

wow nice deal on the series II lately. It's over now, but it had me thinking. I definitely want to upgrade from RC-62II to RC-64II for dialog. But how bid of a difference would RF-7 II versus RF-62II for the soundtrack make? I was told once the subwoofers help with the soundtrack.

Upstairs Living Room - LG 65EG9600: Klipsch R-20B Soundbar
Basement - Sony 75x940d: Klipsch Reference series II speakers, 2 subwoofers, Denon x4000
