Hmm, did anybody see the demo at CEDIA? Is anybody using the in-walls they demo'ed in a theater room?
post #512 of 528
I just asked a co-worker (known for collecting/hording random av and computer stuff) if he happened to have any old speakers or receivers he might be willing to part with. I was just looking for something in my garage.
Well he went home at lunch and came back with a pair of RBH MC-6CT he said I could Have! Additionally, he Gave me Denon AVR 2805! I feel like I just won the lottery. Can't wait to get home.

Nice friend. I wish that I could be a friend like that.

I'm waiting to receive an RBH MC-414C I won on ebay for $51 and another Rotel RB 970BX but in the meantime I had to hook these guys up and see what the Denon AVR-2805 could do with them. Well they sound incredible. The only other personal, in-home experience I have with nice spearkers is a set of Klipsch Bookshelf RB-61s and SW-450 sub. These have much better imaging, can't wait to listen to some 5.1 with the new center and add the Rotel amps.

Nice! RBH makes some good stuff.

Guys, you can now talk to us for your RBH needs. These are wonderful speakers. I have owned several different models of the RBH family. I currently own 661-SE's in Burled Walnut and 661-SE in painted black. I also have some of their Architectural in-wall speakers. The SI-760's. Back in the 90's when I first purchased the SI-760's, RBH was one of the few companies that I could find that designed in-wall speakers with an enclosure, not just a back box stuck on.

Wow this thread hasn't been used in a while! I have an EMP Tek setup in the making and wanted to know if the RBH ceiling speakers are worth getting for a setup with E55ti speakers. looking at the RBH Sound TK-615 and want to see if anyone else has them and if they are worth it or not

I have not heard those in ceiling speakers, but I have listened to and owned many of RBH's speakers. They make a quality product, based on solid engineering. If we can help you with selection, drop us an email.

I haven't heard them specifically, but like the other member, RBH make great speakers. So, they would probably be pretty good.

Awesome thank you, I might have to take you up on that offer soon when I get a little bit more done with this room and need to get at least 2 of the ceiling.

I'm new to AVS so I wanted to shout out to the other RBH owners! I have 661 SEs for LRC, 1010 SEN sub + SA400 amp, and I had been using 44 SEs for surrounds but I got a pair of VM-615 in-ceiling speakers as a replacement since the media room I'm building doesn't have a good spot for on-wall surrounds.

I actually couldn't wait until I put drywall up to hear the VM 615s so I ghetto rigged them up just to listen

I've got the 661SER's for LRC and a pair of the 1010's too. Been using an old set of cambridge for the surrounds as RBH 44 are too big. How are those in walls?

Thanks shamus.
Obviously I got a new tv too.
Those MC 6Ts are loving the Rotel RB 970BX amps (bridged mono 180w each).
The sub is rotated 90 degrees, pointing into the corner. Sounds fuller throughout the room.

I have some 661-SE's and the SI-760's. Had these for many years. great sounding speakers. Here is my Burled Walnut 661-SE: http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff112/mjg100photo/Downstairs%20room/P1000504.jpg
Here is what the SI-760's look like installed (grill off): http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff112/mjg100photo/Downstairs%20room/P1000505.jpg
Grill in place: http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff112/mjg100photo/Downstairs%20room/P1000495.jpg
If more people had the opportunity to hear RBH speakers, there would be a lot more owners. smile.gif

I am in the process of desiging a new home with a home theater and my builder prefers RBH in ceiling or in wall speakers. I am not sold on in walls so I am looking at the medium priced free standing ones. My room is 2700 cubic feet: 15X18X10 with one door and now windows. It will be used for a mix of 50:50 movies and music. I like my sound levels to be a bit below reference and my timber to be accurate but not overly bright. I am not looking to peel the paint from the walls; just a good movie and music immersive experiences. Cost is an issue but size is not since this is MY room (as granted by the Wife as part of the deal to build a new home for her).

I have not been able to hear any of these speakers so I am cautious about the brand or the model. My previous experience has been mostly with older NHT 2.9 and 1.5 speakers. I like that sound but am looking to move up a bit. My budget for 7.1 speakers is $3000-4000 so that puts me in the range of many many brands and models.

What model would you guys suggest and why?
post #528 of 528
For Theater this set is good:

- RBH SX-8300/R (Fronts); SX-6300/R (Back Surrounds); SX-6100C/R (Center) + 2 SVS PB-13 Ultra Subs.

This is to be connected with an ADA Cinema Rapture, that provides 300watts per channel into 4 ohms, and these work at 4 ohms.
