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.

This guy did it. Not sure this is what you meant, though.
Are these Klipsch heresy height atmos speakers overkill?

Whoa, that is amazing! Shame I can't this kind of setup in my house. Does anyone have experience with using atmos enabled height speakers with a heritage sound setup?

My understanding is that Atmos speakers don't have to exactly voice match, as your ears aren't as sensitive to sounds that aren't coming from in front. You could probably just buy some Klipsch Atmos speakers. Get them from Crutchfield, as they have $10 returns, with I believe a 60 return window, if you decide they don't work out.

Just joined the Klipsch family

After 8 years of having Polk Monitor 70's as the main speakers in my TV room, I decided it was time to try something new so I have a set of Klipsch RP-280Fs on the way. Ordered them directly from Klipsch and got an additional 10% discount added to the already decent price of $479 each. Not too bad of a deal in my opinion.

Now, the new speakers will be delivered on Monday and I hope I like them better than the Polks. The Polks are okay for TV/Movies (how good does a speaker setup have to be to hear Sylvester Stallone mumble "Yo, Adrienne!"? LOL), but for music I found them to be fairly average. I have an old set of Sansui SP-2500's that I replaced the crossover caps in and they sound just as good as the Polk Monitor 70's if not better (for music). RP-280Fs will probably get 60% use for tv/movies and 40% for music.

Sadly, with the demise of local stereo shops where one could go audition speakers before buying, I had to buy these unheard and I am just going on faith in the decent reviews that Klipsch gets.

If I like the RP-280Fs well enough for music, I will probably set them up with an integrated amp and cd-player (both of which I have had in the past but went bye-bye in a divorce...which would still have been a bargain at twice the price!!!!) and keep the Polks for TV/Movies.

[quote=drh3b;53825825]First of all, excellent speakers, I'm a little jealous of your LCR.
Yes, the surrounds go on the side walls. I believe there are issues associated with being up against the back wall, but I don't remember what they are, plus Audyssey should help mitigate them.
I read somewhere that wides provide more of an experience than heights, YMMV.
For just a small amount of coin, you could add these for heights, you don't need expensive speakers.
Right now, they're kind of high at $149, Newegg is constantly running sales on them for $100 and less.

Thank you for the reply. I actually have more klipsch speakers that I forgot I had. (I buy and sell stuff online and have these) I have the RB-10......RB61 II.....R-14M and then also the RP-160M.

I know I am using these speakers as these.

RF7 II mains
rc64 II center
rp-250s as rears...or would the rp-160m be better as rears for some reason?
r115sw

with the extra speakers listed above are you saying I should go ahead and do a 9.1 setup with heights and wides......out of the 4 bookshelf speakers listed above which 2 would you use and where would you put them.

Remember I do not have space in the room for REAR back surrounds

Thanks again.

Hello,

I am the proud owner of a pair of 280FA speakers (as well as the other reference speakers) and I am not quite sure how to connect them to my Yamaha A1000 receiver. I will be getting a new Yamaha receiver with Atmos once they are released in July so in the meantime I can't use the Atmos channel. I am just looking to connect the main L/R speakers. This is the first speaker I own that I can bi-amp which I am not going to do - so if I just connect the black/red cables to the "high" or "low" speaker connectors and leave the gold plate jumpers in place will that be sufficient?

I just want to make sure that I am doing it right, I don't want to damage these bad boys. BTW these are HUGE!!

I'll answer the 2nd question first. I have an 11.1 setup, I don't think buying the extra speakers beyond the normal 7.1 was worth it, however, since you have the extra speakers, I'd use the RB-10 as heights, and the RB-61 II as wides. You could probably get away with using the tiny R-14 as wides.

My understanding is that in smaller rooms, the the RP-250s would be better than the 160m, because of "beaming" and in larger rooms it would be personal preference. Since you have both, you could experiment, and see which one you like better,

They'll sound great. I have the non Atmos version. Yes, exactly as you described.

Wohoo! I measured, and my new TV location can fit an RC-64II. So that's my current upgrade goal, keeping the RF-62IIs as floors for now. So what do you guys think would be considered a "good get" for an RC-64II? What price should I try to target for a good deal? And yes I know I'll likely have to be patient and scour for used.

Good decision with center. Number one speaker what you care about when you decide to watch a movie. I will call Eric from SD and tell him what you looking for, you are not in rush and willing to buy open box as long as is in excellent condition with full warranty. I did it with my LCR speakers so as few otger guys here like @gene4ht . Eric called maybe 3-4 weeks later had set ready for me. You need to act fast and pay fast that is all. Got back then deal what is even hard to get today. Also keep eye on used market as well.

Good luck and happy hunting !!!
