Yep. Like this





Although this is the finish I wish I could afford to buy:

But which La Scala? Aren't there like 50 years of those things in various versions? I believe the oldest didn't have much bass from what I remember reading...

They go back to the sixties and were discontinued several years ago but I'm not sure when. I don't think the specs changed much through the years on the La Scala and they were never real deep but the ones I've heard were real tight with the bass they had.

The original La Scala were built from 1963 to 2005. The La Scala ii can still be bought for $3500 each and they only go down to 51 Hz. I dont know which kind he has. Several people have asked for pictures but he refuses to post any. But what I cant understand is why someone would spend that kind of money on 2 speakers and have a budget subwoofer.

I've seen the originals go for six or eight hundred over the last several years. Not many folks these days would even consider a speaker that size and because of these changing times some folks just want to get rid of them. I certianly wouldn't mind taking them off someones hands if I could get them for that price when I had the cash to spare. Don't know where I would put them though!

Budget perhaps?

Either way as you crank up the volume on those La Scala's I bet you would need a good subwoofer (or two) to keep up with them.

What's wrong with a budget subwoofer that gets the job done? Maybe he doesn't listen to levels so high the RW12D can't keep up. The La Scala is a nice speaker but its still just a Klipsch smile.gif

damn looks like I may have to wait till friday for the subs. Tracking it and says there were some adverse weather conditions in memphis, tn.. now It doesnt show an expected delivery date frown.gif

I didnt realize you could get them so cheaply until Angler 55 posted. Maybe Rhetor will post and we will find out the real answer. I really dont care. It just seems like an obvious question.

ALRIGHT FOLKS POST PIX OF THIS BEAUTY]
to get me through the shipping wait time!

I've seen a lot of discussion on it but no pix of it set up in your areas!

Your wish is my command...biggrin.gif

I bought one of these to replace a very old Ace-Bass B2-50 (dual 6" push pull config) in my living room...needless to say it has been a HUGE upgrade. I put it through some scenes from The Avengers and Dredd 3D tonight and the difference from the old sub was incredible- it was like watching those movies for the first time!

For those of you worried about packaging/shipping my sub was packed IMPECCABLY from newegg- see my pictures in the attached album. Full outer box with 2" thick Styrofoam all around, and the correct cables and accessories inside. I was extremely impressed with the packaging. The manufacture date on my sub was 10/12 for what it's worth as well.

Frustrating when they are late shipping, but even more exciting then unpackaging!  Congrats on your purchase!

Mine came packaged the same way which was a good job by newegg. When you say it came with cables and accessories, what do you mean? Mine came with 1 cable to plug it in.

@Benfica1

Ah-

By cables and accessories I meant the correct power cable (some people have complained about receiving the wrong one) and the package with the manual, marketing materials, rubber stops for the feet, etc.

I just received my RW-12D yesterday and wanted to say thank you to all of you that have contributed to this forum. I am a long-time lurker and greatly appreciate your input. I ordered mine from Newegg and everything looks great and works great. The port was not loose and it came with everything that it should.

I went from a Definitive Technology Prosub 1000 (mistake) to this and it has made quite a difference. The DefTech was decent but just too small for my living room. 16'w X 20'd X 17'h and open to the kitchen/dining/breakfast area. This made all the difference in the world and was much more affordable than the DefTech. I just hooked it up to my Denon AVR 1911 and placed it in the same spot. I have not re-run Audyssey yet so it may improve more.

Anyway...thank you again. smile.gif

My Equipment: 5.1system
Denon AVR1911
Energy CB-20 Fronts
Energy CC-10 Center (this thing is awesome)
Proficient Audio W680 in-wall rears
Klipsch RW-12D subwoofer
post #855 of 2776

You do realize that you can still use the Prosub ALSO, don't you?!

There is a reason this thread has stayed alive . . . It is a great sub at the newegg price point!  Glad you too are as satisfied out of the gate in your application.  And you just got some great advice of trying to run the Deftech in your application in tandem with your new RW-12d.  Congrats.

post #857 of 2776
Awesome! I had no idea I could use both. I will give that a try this weekend. Do you guys think it could blend well? Should I place the DefTech near or away from the Klipsch sub?

Lastbutnotleast may know better than me.  They can both be used on your Denon, hooked up correctly.   But only you will be able to tell if you like it in the end.

 

My Denon 4311 will eq two subs through Audyssey . . . I do not think your model of,Denon does it,the same way . . . but it can be worked out.  There is a way to piggyback your two subs. Whether you like the result or not will be your call.

 

It will be free (plus the cost of another sub cable) for you to try it out.  If you do not like the result, you could always sell the Def Tech and fund a second new RW-12d and have perfectly matched subs.

 

IMHO, you should at least give it shot before writing off the Def Tech as an epic fail.

 

All the best to you.

The Prosub 1000 likely does not have the volume output of the Klipsch. Therefore, try placing it nearer to you so that it does not have to work hard to keep up with your RW-12d. Otherwise, the Prosub will reach it's limits first and be the limiter on your setup.

Thanks for the posting that splitter. My Denon only has one LFE out so I will have to use the splitter. I am thinking of putting the ProSub beside the sofa but do not have any speaker terminal near (only power). What do you all think of the wireless options similar to this: Rocketfish RF-WSW312 at best buy

Cant say about that one with your ProSub but most wireless systems work pretty well. Its worth a try.

I hadn't considered those wireless setups. Is there any problems with loss of fidelity?

Most people say no if you get one thats decent quality.

Just ordered mine off the Egg yesterday for $319 couldn't wait for the price drop to $299. Got the tracking number and found out that it was shipped out
of their Edison NJ center. Great news for me because it's just a state over from where I live and it's set to be delivered today.

Only problem is I ordered a subwoofer cable from Monoprice and shipped from California - damn. Now I gotta wait, unless I steal my other cable from my bedroom HT setup.

Decisions..Decisions..
post #867 of 2776
That cable is cheap enough to use for moving the sub around to see if I even want it. I will try that to see if I even want the 2nd sub then look into the wireless options. Thanks!smile.gif
post #868 of 2776

I'm sure you can get the cable and adapter from the same place, perhaps even your local RS.

I just had a bookmark for monoprice (and a sense of humor - they do make shorter cables).

smile.gif

Have fun.

post #869 of 2776
Ordered 12foot cable for just over $5 at Monoprice. Newegg charges double to triple the price for the same lengths and chances are they might not ship out of the same warehouse as the sub.
