Yes my Yamaha has this feature too, Thanks. I am reading up on it..... I think I am fine as I have my center C7 speaker on a shelf just even with the top of my flatt screen that is aimed down.

Thats pretty high for a center. Are you using front presence speakers?

No I do not use presence speakers in front. My rear wall mounted RS3-II are behind the sofa 6 feet back and aimed down like the C7 center is in the pic.

The top of my TV is 57" off the floor. And my sofa is about 6 feet back.The lighting makes the back wall look odd as the left Cornwall
is in the corner of the den. There is a fireplace on the right corner we don't use so my shelfs with my R2R and TT etc set on in front of it. You can't see the fireplace now. I wish it was not there I could spread out the Cornwalls another two feet.

I was limited to exchange since they were open-box, and after much back and forth comparison I closed on the RF82s. They were a bit over my intended budget, but they seemed to be the most bass responsive at volumes that allowed for a more supple listening experience. The 62s seemed just a bit reedy on the high notes.

The manager was nice enough to deliver them in her pickup tonight since they wouldn't fit in my car. They looked so much smaller in the store! Can hardly wait to unpack and hook 'em up, but it'll have to wait until after work tomorrow. It'll give me something to look forward to.
post #22957 of 35374
Those should be much better than the rf-42. I use to have a pair of 82s and thought they sounded really nice. congrats biggrin.gif

Alright--For those keeping score. smile.gif

Over the last couple of days I've been running our 7.2 Klipsch Library Home Theater with a Denon AVR-4311ci to replace the AVR-4806. At first I thought maybe my system was being underpowered, but found my initial impression was because I was listening to bright material after a long day of setup.

Yesterday and Tuesday I had 4 different listening sessions where I played action scenes from my favorite movies at near Reference level (-6 to -3) and felt dialog improved amongst the explosions, gun fire and other action, which is an improvement in both volume and clarity...After action movies on both days, I enjoyed a few ales as I enjoyed my music collection but found the only thing I don't like so far (or haven't figured out) is that converting this material to 7.1 wasn't as sonically pleasing as with my AVR-4806, but SACDs DVD-As sounded excellent in their native format.

Within the next few weeks I am going to try Front Heights to see if it adds anything, but so far I can't imagine it can improve that much. cool.gif

Fwiw, I would call AVS to see if they have any AVR-4311CIs left in stock and if not call Chad at ONECALL where I picked mine up cheaper than it's advertised on E-bay or Amazon...This was my first major internet purchase.

Going to get my RF-62 II's at the store.
1.Klipsch recommends the RS-52's, but they are way too big, would something smaller work? like an RS-42?
2. Would the RB-61 II work nicely? Also think the orginal RB-61 is at an discounted price, would it's sound match the fronts?
3. I also think the RW-12D is nice since its cone matches everything...but are those Black SW sub that much better?

1) Yes. Yes.
2) Yes. Yes.
3) It depends on what you want to spend and what you are trying to accomplish.

How much are the original RB-61's? Just curious because I may sell a pair in the near future.
Subs it seems like the general consensus is if staying at $300 the rw12d is a great deal. Spending more than that stay away from klipsch and go svs, rythmik, powersoundaudio, and so on.
post #22962 of 35374
^ not entirely true... 300 for a rw12d is NOT a good deal, it's a only fair deal.
SW112 is a good deep SW's from Klipsch, but can not compare to the Room shaking SW115... a really really good mid level boutique Klipsch SW.

Yes the general concensus is the RW-12d is a great deal at $300 or lower; although there are a few dissenters.

As to if that is the best for you is your decision.

The RW12D is not bad but at reference levels you do get port chuffing which annoys the crap outta me. Maybe if you got 2 of them to even out the room it might not be to bad. I'm still dumping it sooner or later and going with SVS PB12 or SB13 Ultra.
post #22965 of 35374
The RW12d is THE sub for under $500. If you have $600 or better then options open up. Including, sometimes, 2 RW12d.

SVS PB-1000 I've been told is much better at $500 ($450 closeout). That's what I intend to buy soon at least.

Its not much better. It is a little more accurate and would be a little better for music but it also costs almost twice as much. Depending on the size of the room and your listening habits many people prefer to get 2 RW12s.

I agree.... I have such a small room and Cornwall fronts (15" woofers) I have two even less expensive Synergy Sub 12's 300/650WATT BASH that get it done for HT use now. For Music I just play my Cornwalls on Pure or Straight Analog mode in my AVR for my R2R and TT music. Small room I am in now makes my odd combo of different series Klipsch ROCK. It has Suprised a lot of guys with deep pockets. Yes I would LOVE to own a SVS PB Ultra 13. My best friend of 35 years has one for 4 years now and WOW it will shake your guts but not the booming LFE that the SVS HT tube subs make...Ultra does both with ports you can adjust, but it does Muisc the Best..not a One hit Wonder as some call the less expensive subs. Small room will make a decent rig sound great. And a great rig will sound AWSOME... I have the WAF factor to deal with so I am good where I am at.....for now;)

I dunno....My guess is that people come online and feel 'more' is better and buy 2 RW-12s because it's easy.

I totally agree about every room being different, but having a single harder hitting sub (or one that goes lower) at a higher spl would be more advantageous than 2 subs of lessor specs for a considerable number of people...Keep in mind, if a sub is in close to an optimum place most/all of the things below 80 Hz aren't going to be localized, and if louder and more precise adds to the experience especially in multichannel music.
post #22970 of 35374
Thats a lot to consider.
First of all. A sub that hits lower, harder, has a higher spl and is more accurate is going to cost you dearly. The RW12 is no slouch.
Many people have trouble finding an optimum place for various reasons. And 2 subs are ALWAYS better than one for smoothing in room response.
Most people are not critical music listeners who are in this category of subwoofers. They want it mostly for theater. Critical music listeners are usually looking at subs that start out ~$1000.

Yes. Im pretty sure it will be the Rw-12D. The SVS are hard to get here in Europe. Besides the Rw-12d is in my budget and the design is important for me and design wise the the rw-12 fits the rf-62's design. It loooks a bit retro though.

The SW series looks less nice in the design, looks a bit boring and doesnt match the rf series. They are more expensive but i cant quite judge if its a big difference.

Im pretty much 100% sure im getting the rw.

My SVS PC13-Ultra blends in well with my Chorus II's. It isn't boomy at all. Nice and tight bass for music.
post #22973 of 35374
^Blue12X You have a good point but at what cost? I purchased my 2 used HT subs 5 years ago for about $350.00 for the pair local.($499.00 retail when they were new) I still see one NOS for $249.00 plus $45.00 to ship. It seems that in every format I like, going after that last 10% of perfection really starts to get really expensive. SVS Ultra PB13 is expensive and takes two men to move it. Worth it if you can afford it.
SOOO glad I have this small room......it has saved me a lot of money. Some day a PB Ultra 13 or one in that quality. I am old school and looked at a DIY "Folded "horn bass binhttp://www.parts-express.com/projectshowcase/indexn.cfm?project=HOSS transmission line design bass bin. If I had the coin and the room for them. Not the tweeter model just a sub in this designed cabinet is awsome for Klipsch Heritage speakers for music. So many options and so little money.

Welcome to the Cornwall club smile.gif call Bob Crites and chat with him about the cross overs and read about the his CT-125 tweeters. Our Cornwalls have been in the family from day one. Last year I purchased Bob's networks and and this year his tweeters... Huge difference. If you have soldering skills he has a re-cap kit for the networks(save a lot of$$) a must after 20 years or so. It seems the older Alinco magnet T-35 tweeters just don't go up as high as his drop in CT-125. Enjoy.... Look on the Klipsch Factory Forum for letters from PWK "Dope From Hope" on speaker placement for the Heritage speakers. Those RF-7II's are nice too I would like to have a pair to try for HT use and move my Cornwalls to my analog rig in the bedroom.

Thanks Louis. I hadnt even picked them up yet and i was putting a shopping list together on bob's website for the future. I really want to keep my RF 7iis, but im not sure if I can put them anywhere else in my home. My little movie room is just too small for them, but they do sound amazing with movies. I had just enough time to move the 7's out of the way to put the cornwalls in place and give a quick listen before i had to run to work. So i will def work on placement later. The wife actually prefers the look of the RF 7iis, but from the little i listned to the corns, there is no way in hell i'm parting with them anytime soon.

Check out this deal all you Heresy fans. I am tempted to pick these up just to hear a Heresy next to my RF-5s.
