Alright alright...I know...beating many dead horses here but maybe a quick help-me based on my room and other speakers???
20x20 vaulted great room, open to the kitchen, carpeted. I'm using 7 Infinity TSS 1200 satellite speakers (Satellite Frequency Range 120Hz – 30,000Hz +/–3db).
The matching sub is taking a dirt nap, as most are/have and it's time to replace it. I'd love to drop the big bucks but I've got to save that for the basement theater instead.
I've read this entire thread - but didn't really know how to apply it to my settings or preferences. Since this is a main living room it will ultimately be used more for entertaining (think Pandora/Netflix) rather than my basement which will be the big-boy room. I want to be able to turn it up every now and then, and movies do get watched here...but I've no need to nickle and dime spec sheets to death. I consider myself more of an audiophile than most people. Just because I can't afford something doesn't mean I don't know what I missed out on
At this point, for $300 I can get either the Klipsch RW-12d or the Cadence CSX-12 MkII. Those are the two I'm considering. I wouldn't turn down another suggestion, but I won't spend more.
Klipsch - Pro/Cons. I like the programmable idea. It sits in a spot where the back isn't very accessible so that would be a plus. (although, has anyone heard of the digital-ness of that panel breaking???) The name, as someone said earlier, might be an easier sell down the road if I ever need to. Cons: It's a bit bigger.
Cadence - Pro/Con. It SEEMS from some of your input that this might be a bit more accurate for listening to music? It looks better to me...the Klipsch does look a little bit UFO. Cons: Not much name recognition (which other than selling I honestly don't care about).
Help? If I don't hear from anyone by tomorrow evening (Klipsch sale ends) I'll be flipping a coin. Thanks!
My Room...yes...there's a lot going on...just the way I like it.
