what other speakers are you gonna get ?? 5.1 set-up I assume ? If only a 2 channel set-up the 82's are a best case set-up start to a 5.1 surround system , next add a RC-62 as a center , then add RB81's as surrounds to fill in the 5.1 , when your done you will have a killer systems that will last many many years to come . smile.gif

Thanks for the advise. Yes, it will be for a 5.1 system.

The biggest I would go is the RF62ii's but that is just my opinion. I prolly will upgrade to the RF62ii's down the road but for now I'm happy with my setup. Its more than enough when pushing it hard. Again this is just MY opinion. Good luck!

Thank you for your input. Glad to hear that even an rf-52 will do the job. I might go with an 82 though just to avoid getting into an upgrade cycle.

Most of us dont have dedicated livingrooms so we make due the best we can. Plus their Klipsch man, they'll sound good anywhere tongue.gif

Thanks again for all the input everyone!!

Klipsch fans,
What is the down-side of the WF-35 speakers? I am starting down the slippery slope of HT. I have my finger on the trigger to buy the no longer manufactured WF-35's and matching center speaker, WC-24. The price is reasonable right now. Why shouldn't I buy?

the only downside is that you will want to upgrade later... best to go all in now :-)

I have always, and will always like Yamaha receivers. But that is just my opinion.

After deciding that keeping the center matched to the mains was more important than bigger mains, I pulled the trigger on a set of RB41ii, RC42ii, RS42ii, and SW112 and am thoroughly in love! My TV/stand setup constrained me to the RC42, and I was worried about the RB41s filling the room (13'w x 18'l x 8.5' h), but my doubts have been erased. Still need to do some minor placement and eq tweaking, but it's pretty great so far, and a huge improvement over my previous setup.

So, I guess consider me a positive data point for small speakers doing a great job in a moderate space. :-)

My bedroom is that size and I have those speakers and it sounds amazing

Sweet! That is how I think I might be leaning. I think some of the guys on here have convinced me that if I go Klipsch, I should keep the fronts the same as the center, vs going with a RC42 and RB51's.

I need help!!! I just started to setup home theater system. I have these banana plugs:http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B006U3O566/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1361226907&sr=8-1&pi=SL75

And they are not locking into inputs on speakers. It's like they do not fit, the best they do is sit in the connection on the speakers, they do not hold in place, very loose. Am I doing something wrong? The speakers are RF-82ii, RC-62ii, and RS-52ii

Thanks,

I'm a big fan of Denon! If I were you I would go with the 4311 or 3313 both are in your price range. I've owned Yamaha's and have friends that own Onkyo's and I still like the sound of Denon the best. This is just my opinion of course. Some receivers sound warmer than others and have different userfaces. I would try to listen to a different few and do some research on youtube if possible. Very helpful

I'm glad your enjoying your new speakers. Its always exciting when getting new speakers or any new electronics for that matter.

Sounds like you may have just loosened the binding post and tried to insert. If so, you need to screw them back down and then remove the little plastic plug in the center of each binding post and then insert the banana plugs.......

This may be a noob question, but I just received rf 62 ii's and I measured the woofer size and its only about 5 1/4. Is there a chance I got the rf 52 ii's labeled as rf 62 ii's? Is there a good way to find this out? The back label says rf 62 ii.
post #21347 of 35284
e84cooper....the reason why I like Yamaha is that they seem to make speakers seem "bright" or "forward", as in to me putting extra emphasis on the highs. Not to say that it shorts anything else, but it makes things seem crisper. That is to me at least.

Doubt it. They don't weight the same, ones taller and wider, etc.
Did you measure just the copper portion?

So I measured again, woofer edge to edge and its a little over 5 3/4. The width of the cabinet is 8 1/2 which is the right size for the rf 62 ii.

I've had the Klipsch Synergy F-2 system for almost 6 years and I'm ready to upgrade. I've been looking at the Rf-62 II system and would like to know if anyone could comment on them. I plan to go to a local dealer to take a listen, but you never know until you put them in your room. I love the detail of my F-2's, but they are overly bright and mid-bass is sometimes lacking. I'm hoping the RF-62's are a bit warmer. Any help is appreciated.
post #21351 of 35284
I made up a new thread regarding this...but I figured I would post here too to ask the experts in Klipsch what you all think I should do. The reason being is that the Reference horns might change the options that I have....so here we go:

So I am trying to figure out what kind of speakers I should use as my rears, the traditional monopoles in the rear corners, or bi/dipoles somewhere else. The ceiling is 9' high, and the front mains would be sitting in bookshelves in the front, and the center would be under the TV mounted on the wall, and sitting on the fireplace mantel. What kind of speakers would you recommend, and where would you place them? The couch MUST stay were it is against the rear wall. I was told to put something like Klipsch RS42's in the rear corners on the side walls (if I went with Klipsch speakers). What about RB41'2 or RS 41's, and how would you mount them? I need some help as all the speaker placement guides give suggestions for when there is room behind the couch.
post #21352 of 35284
I just set up my system:

Klipsch
RF-82 ii
RC-62 ii
RS-52 ii
RW-12D
Demon 3312 receiver
(Note volume on sub was set at 0db before running audessey)

And I have a couple things I have noticed so far. One thing is my PS3 is only showing multi channel in and when I play blurays that is only movie sound option. Also I don't feel like I'm getting a good boom feeling from system. It seems to be really missing on highs, I just don't feel like submerged in the action. For instance in transformers dark side of the moon when sidewinder (not sure on name) first shows up the whole sequence just didn't pop.

Another great example is when playing a shooter (ex. Dead Space 3) when I shoot there is no power behind it (no bass, etc) it almost even sounds subdued compared to environment sounds and music sounds.

Any suggestions?

Move the woofer around if that's the thing you're missing. Corner loading the woofer will greatly increase it's output in the room. Play around with moving speakers around and messing with it. Not sure what to say about the 'lack of pop', maybe you need more power like an external amp. I've read (maybe here) that the references like the big amp power.

I have an RW-12D sub and the volume is at -23. After you run Audessy you want the sub volume to be -1.5 - +1.5 on your Denon that is your target. With your system theres no reason why you shouldnt have tears rolling down your cheeks because your an awe. Theres something seriously not setup properly. I also have a PS3 and thats normal for it to show Multi channel in. I also have a Denon AVR

These are efficient speakers! My Denon 791 only has 90 watts per channel his 3312 has 125. He also has bigger drivers in his Klipsch than mine. There is no reason why that system shouldnt rock bigtime. Mine does

True but some guys might like those cinema in house systems with full horn-loaded theater speakers and twin horn loaded subs that go from 10hz - 100000 hz at 120 db at 10 feet. wink.gif Didn't even think about the Audessy thing but I think I had something similiar happen to mine and had to manually set it to 0.

Thanks everyone for the quick responses and help. Also please note all speakers set manually to 80 frequency except surrounds are 100 and all speakers set to small.

Regarding your comment cchunter. Before you ran the audessey did it show volume 0 db on subwoofer? Also after running the audessey I went to channel level and it showed sub was -12 db, so I changed it in the menu to -9 db. Can I just change it in denon channel level to like -1.5 db or must I redo audessey?

Also were you able to select a different surround sound mode when watching blurays on ps3? For instance I was playing xbox 360 and it was showing Dolby digital and sounded good, I want that on ps3.

Lastly what volume do you normally view movies at? I was listening at around -30 db.

First you have to rerun audessy. Make sure the volume on the sub is low before you rerun it. Like I said mine is at -23. My crossover on all speakers is set to 80. My speakers are all set to small as well. I watch movies between -25 to -30. As far as the PS3 goes theres an audio setting for bitstream on/off.

Doesn't Audessey set reference level at 0 dB?
You guys watch movies at 25 to 30 dB below reference? Are you in apartments with neighbors? Anyway that might explain the lack of enthusiasm, right?
