Welcome to AVS BTW ....
Thanks for the Welcome.
I will get a drawing with some dimensions of the room up on photobucket tomorrow. its an odd shaped room.
Also reading reviews like this one on Amazon worry me about Klipsch. He said it about the RB-61 II's here http://www.amazon.com/review/R119C4W3W46K9D/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R119C4W3W46K9D
"I cannot recommend the Klipsch RB-61 ii speaker. The cabinets are made from a soft composite wood product covered with a cheap, thin vinyl veneer. The only difference between the black and cherry versions is the color of the vinyl veneer. The cabinets are easily damaged and Klipsch will not sell replacements. The woofer and tweeter/baffle are secured to the cabinet by wood screws, not bolts.
Although the RB-61 ii appears high-tech, the drivers are rather cheap as well: the woofers use a plastic basket, and the horn tweeter is integrated into the front baffle, which is also plastic. To its credit, the RB-61 ii's woofers do have a heavy magnet structure, but since the baskets are plastic, the heavy magnets may actually be a drawback over time. The only parts which look substantial are the grille covers, wiring, and crossovers.
There are less expensive speakers on the market, though perhaps not as efficient, that perform as well or better than the Klipsch RB-61 ii. Check out Monitor Audio and Energy, among others. The Klipsch RB-61 ii is designed to look high-tech, but when you take it apart, it's a shoddy Made In China product with the Klipsch name slapped on. You're paying a stiff premium for the Klipsch name--this speaker should sell for $200.00 less than it does"
Does anybody know if this is true? are they made in China?
