Just a side note, I think the K77/T-35 tweeter is actually designed to have wider dispersion when placed vertically, as EV originally designed it.  I think Klipsch installed it horizontal simply to help it fit the space.

 

Note on page three "The loudspeaker (T-35) shall have a height of 5.3 inches, width of 2.0 inches......"

 

Seems Klipsch has been installing them wrong for a couple years!!!

I knew EV made them back in the day. But I was talking about the Mid horn in my Cornwall/Heresy. I had no idea the T-35 was made to be installed vertical. They sure sound Great the way PWK installed them.
62 and still going to school on Heritage speakers. I sure like Crites CT-125 better then my old Alinco magnet tweeter in my Cornwall.

Gonna rope caulk the horn (have to replace a tweeter diaphragm), would that be good enough or use some tape to make tube a tighter fit? What do you guys recommend?

Just picked up a pair of those last night, KM-4, same specs as kg3.5, only sold through Military Exchange.

You obviously dont know what youre talking about so theres no sense in further discussing it. Keep that in mind the next time you post that someones comment is 100% wrong and you have no idea what you are talking about. Thanks.

Wow. This is the Klipsch Owners Thread. I apologize for any confusion and what tried to clarify in the multi-quote post on the previous page is that bond's comment in regard to his original premise was wrong because Klipsch does not use "90 x 90 dispersion tweeters" and in fact all (not "some are 90 by 60") of the Reference and Synergy lines have 90 by 60 degree dimensions for their dispersion.

Again, this is the second time I stated it for the record, but I too think that a horn that has a dispersion pattern of "90 by 90" degrees will not benefit from being turned on it's side, but to reiterate something you said on the previous page and given you're calling it a " a square horn," above--It doesn't necessarily mean that the dispersion pattern is equal and in fact all of the Klipsch THX, Reference and Synergy line use 'square horns" whose dispersion pattern is 90 by 60 degrees and that is what I was trying to clear up...To put it another way ALL Klipsch THX, Reference and Synergy speakers use "square horns" and NONE have a "90 x 90" degree dispersion pattern. I hope this helps clear things up and if not I gave it my best shot. cool.gif

EDIT: Btw, Louis, I took your advice without even knowing it and had a few ales and enjoyed music and a movie on my Klipsch Library Home Theater....I'll do the same this evening. Cheers!

http://www.klipsch.com/rs-3-ii-surround-speaker ZEN I just realized this too. I looked at my rears RS3-II as they are 6"X6" yet they are not equal in the dispersion. eek.gif
You Are CORRECT sometimes logic is not the best way to quote. I stand "Corrected" the inside of the tweeter horn starting at the throat where the diaphragm is NOT square INSIDE.
the vertical sides are wider then the horiznal side as the curve goes out. Duh My bad... Check out the Omnimount WA 30.0 wall mounts one of you put me onto here last week.



post #23080 of 35272
Hey guys...mymarantz Sr5007 is 100watts per channel.

Would that be ok for the rs62 or rs82?

Or should i upgrade that too.

This post mentions nothing of dimensions or brands and I have never wavered from it. You can try to manipulate the issue and claim that it is not relevant to this thread because none of the Klipsch Synergy and Reference tweeters are 90x90 but it still does not make my post incorrect.If the fact that this post is in a speaker thread does not make it relevant enough my Icon VF36s DO HAVE A 90x90 tweeter. So that makes it become relevant to the Klipsch brand also.
This was supposed to only be relevant to center channel speakers anyway. It is ZenTraveler who has taken it off subject by grasping at straws in order to defend his position.
Can you come up with anything else?
This post is 100% CORRECT and nothing has been posted to prove otherwise.

Went to the store and got 2 RF-62 II and one RC-62 II.

Still looking for a sub...my next purchase will be the rw-12d....and maybe...just maybe the Sw-115.

Still thinking if Iwant to go with rears considering the small space i use for my homr theater;

Can anyone recommend good rears for my Rf-62s?

As you can see in the pic above i had the quitets....that was perfect sizr wize. What will work best in this space...rb-61...or rs-42? Or anything else.

It would be worthwhile to get something to replace those small satellites. Due to the close proximity I would use the rs rather than rb series. I think any of the rs series would be a big improvement. If you have to use stands that may limit your options. RS42ii maybe. Even RS41ii would be an improvement and would be cheaper. But if you can find a way to make RS42s work as far as stands thats what I would do.

I would get the RS42ii's for sure. That corner in the picture would be a nice spot for one of them. I cant see the far left side of your room. We want pictures of them RF62ii's as well! smile.gif

So normally the RS-52 is recommended for the rf-62. But considering the close proximity to the seating position the output of the rs-42 would be more than enough?

I could still get the rs-52 and put them on bookshelf stands.

Well bigger is always better but I think the 42's will do fine in that small of a room. If money isnt an issue then by all means get the 52's. If you ever move to a bigger place you wont have to upgrade.

So.. . don't be a hater. This is a Klipsch thread start a JTR thread. Some of us poor members can't afford a new $1,400.00 sub plus freight.

Klipsch does make some good subs. From the major speaker manufacturers, Klispch probably has some of the best value subs out there, the RW-12d, the SW-112 and SW-115, and the THX 120, at least at their street price level.
post #23100 of 35272
Well the KW-120 is no slouch and I am very happy with them. Together with my Epic CF-3 they sound really fantastic and literally earth shattering. cool.gifbiggrin.gif
