I realize this is in part room, distance, and preference dependent but what kind of toe in are people finding works best for the RP series? Specifically the RP-160M. Thanks.

Follow this link. http://www.klipsch.com/blog/how-to-set-up-a-7-1-system you sould be able to look down the throats of the tweeter horn from where you set. Mid horns at ear level when possible. Hope this helps as I have my Cornwalls (fronts) "Towed IN" big time so they are aimed at me just like in the link.

Hey guys, can the rp160m be placed on its side for center channel placement? I am considering these for my front three going from a def tech setup. Thanks.

Nice thing about the RP series- no more 90x60 horn dispersion. You'd have to rotate the horn in the previous reference line up.

I'm looking to upgrade my center channel from the Polk CS1 Series II. Would I be better off with the Klipsch RP-250 or RP-440C? Or any other recommendations?

I have my theater set up with a motorized screen that stops right at the top of the LaScala which puts the focal point of the image at a slight upward angle from my seats and it's not a problem in the least.
Whoa the tv tilting is an interesting idea! Was also thinking about maybe raising my couch by 10-20cm which would fix it and/or lowering the scale (by taking of the stand if possible). Maybe I'll do a little bit of a combination! Would really like my tv to be at ideal height.

A La Scala standing up is good height for a center with a TV on top. Can't put Heritage on its side. Horn orientation won't allow it.

I have owned older Cornwalls with it's mid horn vertical, the same horn mounted horizonal as my 1979 Cornwall/Heritage. So I thought a LaScala laying flat for a center for HT would not be that big of a deal. I know the LaScala has a different shaped horn but for voice for HT worth a try IMHO if you have one just setting. I agree standing UP is the BEST way just thought I would throw out a idea for HT use only..IMHO I liked a Heresy BEST(TOO BIG for my den) ) but a C7 with Crites mods is darn hard to beat for Heritage fronts.

I thought of doing this also but for $100 more vs 2 RP160M's, I snagged a black wood grain RP-450CA and so glad I did. Love the look with my 65" TV sitting on top RP450CA all speaker woofers are on same horizontal plain, looks and sounds great.

The the RP-440C with 4 smaller woofer for about $200.00 more with smaller horn then RC-62....umm maybe someone that has owned a RC-62 and went to the 440C will post up. I always went for the largest tweeter horn and mid woofers for my center I had space and $$ for.

Well I think I will try both setups probably not gonna like the height though.. I tried it with my current setup, and while manageable it really bottered me Will have my full setup in september, might include the heresy sides. Still thinking on that. Would I be better of with a reference series RP250S because it is dipolar, or with the heresy because it is better matching? And if I do pick up the heresys, which generation should I pick? My current setup is: Chorus II fronts, LaScala II center, Forte II rear.

I just bought a pair of Klipsch RP-280F (floor standing) and RP-450C (center channel). Yes only 3.0 for now. I will buy two rear speakers later on. Questions to all the experienced Klipsch owners:
1. Do I need subwoofer or does the RP-280F has enough low frequency power (sorry if this question is obvious to some of you)
2. Do you recommend any receiver brand/model that work 'better' with Klipsch. I am thinking of Marantz SR6010 or Marantz SR5011. I am planning to use this for music 80% of the time.
3. Is there a difference in music quality if I bi-amp the floor standing speakers?

Appreciate everyone's help in this.

For movies and some music, you need a sub.

Marantz, Denon, Pioneer, Onkyo. Just choose one with the options you want.

Bi-amping isn't worth the time it took me to type this.

I don't own the RP-280Fs but given the rated frequency response you should be fine for almost all music unless you listen to content with pipe organs. The only caveat is if you like a higher level of bass output you have much more control with a sub as you can easily bump sub trim or gain independently of mains. Lots of people like to run their subs hot even for music to get more of that mid bass chest thump. Can't really do that running just a full range speaker. For movies it's a different story. You are missing out without a sub. So bottom line is get a sub. With such good mains and center it would be a shame not to get the whole HT experience.

Not sure when this was announced but there is now a reference line Atmos module. Looks almost identical to RP version except I'm assuming it uses the reference drivers. The grill is a little different and I might actually like the look better than the RP-140sa.

So Heresy I over II and III?

Also, when going for 11.2, would raising a pair of Heresys work? Like putting them on a high (1,8 meter) stand? Just thinkering about ideas to create the whole surround while sticking to heritage.

You would probably be better off staying with a Polk center speaker, like the CS10 maybe, unless you plan to replace the rest of your speakers with Klipsch as well. A Klipsch center won't be timbre matched with your remaining Polk speakers, particularly your Monitor 60s.
