All I can find are 6 rubber half circles, not sure if that came with the speakers. Also have spikes but they came with the fronts. The bottom of the speaker has two threading bush holes but they are not parallel, one is front to the left and bottom off center right. Can I buy this separately or is the tilt rod really these rubber half moons ( 6 of them). What would I use to tilt/angle the center down,up.
You didn't say which Klipsch center so I just went with the first one I came across. I think the rubber half moons are intended to be used to fill the holes if you don't use the tilt rod, otherwise you use the threaded holes for the tilt rod. Check page 3 paragraph center channel speakers that refers to figure 4 in the pdf. Here's the pdf. http://images.klipsch.com/Reference2...6138280000.pdf

If your didn't come with anything other than the speaker and the rubber half moons, then somebody shorted you the tilt assembly.

Samsung 64F8500, Panasonic 65VT50, Oppo 95, Tivo Roamio for OTA, Dish VIP722, Marantz AV8801 preamp, Rotel Amps, Atlantic Tech 8200 speakers, Seaton Submersive HP, Calman 5, Chromapure, VideoForge HDMI II, i1Display3pro, i1pro2, eecolor colorbox.

1. Front L/Rs are set up to be +/- 30 deg with a protractor as seen from MLP. Both L&Rs t/w the Center are tilted downward to face seated MLP, as well as nudged off the shelf by an inch in order to tame early reflections. (Special note: my Dali speaker Manual explicitely recommends not to toe-in the front L/Rs due to their wide dispertion pattern design).

2. Surrounds are placed approx. 100 deg to the left and right as per Dolby's speaker placement guidelines.

3. Sub is placed at 1/4th of front room lenght from the right side (as suggested by Sanjay/ sdurani)

4. The room itself has plenty of natural dampening "stuff" to bring down reverb, like curtains, elevated book shelves, rough textured wall paper, textile seating (instead of leather), decorative table cloth on coffee table (a WAF kinda thing!), and its a closed room, no kitchen, no dining space, no "Big Room" effect here.

Welcome any time for a listening test, btw, you prefer red or white wine?

I am glad that I am not the only one that have used a protractor (and strings, in my case) to measure the location and placement of the surround speakers , lol...

And do you have a vise to clamp your head in while watching a movie?

It's the klipsch 62.2. There are no holes though except for two just off center staggered either side of center with grooves
