My Denon AVR-4806 delivers 114 wpc/7 channels being driven and 182 wpc/2channels being driven.

EDIT: I noticed that "AVR 4806," is bluelighted in my post with a price tag of $279 but when you go to the amazon link there is only one listed at $1900.

Those are some good numbers for a AVR with all channels driven ! My old Pioneer Elite 94 had some good numbers to that thing was a power house for a Avr .

1900 refurbished ..
yeah that's a great AVR doing 7.1 No knock on your AVR

.but I'm doing 9.2 soo I got what I got , but as a Known Fact some of the older AVR's had way better power/wattage outputs than the New crop of AVR's from all the top MFGer's soo ya gotta go with what is new to stay in front of the curve , seems that the Flagship AVR's are feature rich these days & when a multiple channel power amp is added then You get the best of both worlds . I'm very happy with 5008 as it has the processing power all separated into different paths with power supplies for each . The Video Reon chipset & the other features make it something I really like

1. 2004
2. You can use 1 to 1 if you like.. 2amps to 1sub ?? dont know how you would do that , I think there are better system with 2000w if you where going that route.. and I really like the Ultra2 subs.

Klipsch in the house!

Just placed my order/deposit with George over at ABT. I'll soon have (but not soon enough):

2x Klipsch RF-7 IIs
1x Klipsch RC-64 II
2x Klipsch RS-62 II
2x Klipsch RB-81 II
1x Denon AVR-A100
Sanus speaker stands for the RB and Center otw.

I can't wait for the new candy to arrive! Now I need to chose a sub, I'm leaning towards ED but may go HSU...

In any case I can't wait. Upgrading from a Denon 3808ci with Klipsch Icon WF-35 7.1 set. They look great but I have a feeling the new set above is going to kick some serious ass over the Icons...

---Quote (Originally by Fastslappy)---
i'm getting a UPA-7 for the same reason as I'll be pushing 9 speakers

going by this testing Here :::

http://www.hometheater.com/content/o...-labs-measures

the 5008 drops watts down about to 1/2 power when pushing 7 plus speakers.......... but the 5008 has a 4 power supplies & the Toroidal produces the clean signal to the AVR's amps
the Emotiva UPA-7 is rated @ 125 per channel constant over all seven channels
add that drop on the 5008 in watts,
I/need want the headroom as I'm pushing my mains & surrounds with a Audyssey XT32 XO setting @ 50 with 15" woofs
the UPA-7 & the XPA-3,XPA-5 all have massive toroidal power supplies as the 5008 has one also

that's the "clean power in clean watts out"
i'll see if the UPA-7 will deliver what I need oR if I have to move up the XPA line but I have a feeling with my speakers being Very Efficient the 125 watt constant will do just fine for my need of head room
---End Quote---
I think you will be happy with the UPA-7 and the 5008. I am using the UPA-7 to drive My Klipch LCR+ Surrounds + zone 3 speakers, and leaving my 3008 to drive the highs and wides. When I called to order my Emo, the salesman even said the UPA-7 would be all I need for driving Klipsch speakers. I just checked the EMO last night to see if it was running warm after watching 2 movies at near reference levels, and was surprised at how cool it was. There was almost no heat coming off it.
***************

Again...This thread is located at:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...8&goto=newpost


Do you think the upa-7 will be able to drive RF-82II (150w) or even RF-7II (250w)?
I know Klipsch is very efficient, but have no idea how much is needed.
post #12160 of 35435
All Klipsch are different in amplifier requirements. The 82's would be fine with a UPA. I'd want more for the 7's.
post #12161 of 35435
I'm looking for some recommendations here. My father in law just bought a new house with a fairly large media room (9'H x 22'W x 24'D) that already has 4 CDT-3650-C surrounds installed at the back of the room. He needs the FCR speakers along with a sub and his budget is mid to high (no Palladiums of course!). The majority of the time will be spent watching movies and TV with very little music listening. I've only heard a few Klipsch towers and do not know what would be a good match to the existing in-wall speakers.
post #12162 of 35435
i bought thx 2 ultra set 7.2 i have some questions

1-İf i add two more subwoofers it will be boomy or better? 7.4?

2-if i just add one more subwoofer amplifier like 2 sub and 2 ka-1000 amplifier
anything i gain ?
post #12163 of 35435
barasn, more subs will (in most rooms) smooth out the subs in room response. In my room, I would describe it as fuller and richer. It should also give you more headroom, but not in all cases. Can you describe what it is you're trying to improve upon? What were your room dimensions?
post #12164 of 35435
my room is big like 65m2

Tony's right.
my set-up is VERY efficient......


but the 7II's love watts

Hah! Well, I've been a Klipsch fan for quite some time. I've had both models of the 5.1 computer sets, the ipod dock and the full 7.1 setup of Icon Ws. I've just finally decided to jump in with both feet and go top of the line reference series

Now I'm thinking of adding in a couple of Emotivas. My delimma is do I go XPA-5 and leave the RB's running off the A100 or add an XPA-2 OR go XPA-3 and leave the RS and RB's running off the A100.

But I think I'm going to just get the new references setup with the A100 first and see how it sounds. If it warrants a couple of Emotiva's I'll do that.

Too bad I can't find anywhere to demo the Klipsch RF-7s and others here in Austin :/

HT with it's peaks and valleys, the A100 may have what it takes to hold it's own. The only issue will be with very loud music. Having a subwoofer and crossing the RF-7 at say 80hz might help matters with the a100.

If my conversion is right, that is 600 square feet. Assuming 9' ceilings, then you're at 5400 cubic feet of volume. My room is pretty close to that (a little under). Realize, that the Ultra2 system is designed for rooms up to 3,000 cubic feet. Your room is almost twice that! If your desire is for "potent" bass, I would be concerned that even four of those subs would do the job. On top of that, those are expensive, and another set would double the "premium".

I learned this the hard way, and changed out my speakers and subs for something designed for larger spaces. It made all the difference in the world. I had completely underestimated the requirements of larger spaces. I bet that happens often.
post #12170 of 35435
^^^ 5400 cu is alot.. really depends on how much bass you need or how loud you want it. 4 subs I would think would be ok, but that's alot of dough.. 2 amps and 4 subs.

I'm at half that size 2300cu and 2 subs/1amp is plenty for me.

2 each SVS PC12-NSD pressurize my room quite nicely

anyone here running heritage (Cornwalls, Heresies, etc.) with older Parasound amps such as the HCA1000, HCA1200, HCA1500?

can you provide some feedback? like the sound? how do they compare to B&K amps.

thanks much!

Halo line is where it's at for parasound. .. always had a soft spot for the A51.

a Halo would sure be nice, but way out of my reach.

I'm no scientist, but from my experience in various sized rooms, I think that the requirements for "pressurization" are on an exponential curve. So, it takes more than twice as much sub to handle twice the space. Just a hunch from my experience. In any event, all of our exptectations are different, so hard to say.

Im starting to feel a little pressurized
