I bought a couple of 'floating shelves" and reinforced them with decorative "L" brackets. Rock solid but I was limited with a half brick wall between my LR and dining room.


That looks great. What did you use, just normal screw? Or anything in particular that you recommend?

Thanks! I drilled pilots and used 3" masonry screws into the wall and 3/4" wood screws up into the shelf. Shelves were from Lowes and brackets from Home Depot (or vise versa) I've slept since then biggrin.gif

Could that work for the RS-52 II? It's supposed to be for a small LCD screen, but it seems like it could fit.

I got the below for my RS-62IIs. Says they are currently unavailable on amazon, but I'm sure if you google you can find them.

Hey everyone,

I am thinking of replacing a very old set of energy bookshelves/center in my secondary HT room… AKA ...,Family Room. This is NOT my primary HT room. Anyway, I have never owned Klipsch speakers and found a smoking deal on the F30's. My problem is, our display is on a nice, solid wood entertainment center. This issue is now, what to do to match the F30's w/a decent center channel. The pre built center only has an opening of about 18" wide which rules out the C20 at nearly 20" wide. No room on top with display for speaker either. So, do you all feel the C10 will be a good match w/ F30's? I can pick up the F30's less $ right now than F20's…. Look forward to any suggestions. Thank you,
post #23707 of 35426
Any way to put it on a tray underneath the tv, or another F30 anywhere?
post #23708 of 35426
How about a wall mount the tv to make room on the cabinet?
post #23709 of 35426
I just made a mistake with a smallish center. So now I try to come up with solutions.
post #23710 of 35426
Any way to modify the opening? I just measured my C20,its 19". Perhaps you could find a way to cut out or sand an inch on the opening?
post #23711 of 35426
Man, I would love to wall mount the TV…. But, I have my man cave already…. WAF!!!! I was just looking at my set up and though of just hanging a shelve behind/above display to house the C20.
post #23712 of 35426
Hi, Everybody.

I am also thinking about the F-30 deal. Is it a decent middle range speaker?

Is there any reliable test review for this speak?

Thanks.

Thank you, for both your replies…. Our display is a 65" Samsung LED and it literally takes the entire top of the the center. Not sure what a tray, beneath TV is….

I thought of perhaps laying C20 vertical and still not enough room. This entertainment centers look nice, but they suck when it's time to upgrade.
post #23715 of 35426
Sorry… one more. I take it the C10 is not a good match with the F30's?? Thanks

I'm sure it will be fine.
post #23717 of 35426
it looks like a lot of folks use 12awg but what is the benefit of using that over 14awg? this is for in-ceiling...

also if i dont use banana plugs how do install the speaker cable - direct contact with the speaker terminals? is it possible for it to become loose overtime?

In theory, thicker is better, less resistance, & if you are going to take the time to run it someplace hard to wire, why not use thicker?

Bare wire is OK, but banana plugs can prevent problems with the wires touching each other, or the back of the AVR, maybe causing a short, blown amp, or other problems.

Plus once installed, they are easy to connect & disconnect.

The speaker wire terminals on my RS3-II have threaded shafts for the red and black hold down nuts. Unscrew the the red and black nuts out far enough and you

will see a drilled hole thru the threaded shaft. I just trimmed back the the speaker wire (12ga) and twisted the bare wire a few times and inserted the bare wire thru the hole and tightened down the red/black plastic hold down nuts. I trimmed enough back so the nut when snugged down missed the insulation and pressed down on the bare wire.

I have seen a few Klipsch that won't take bananas.

That is how I have my C7 mounted on the wall above my 55" that sets on a low cabinet that has two shelves for my AVR on one and PS3 on the other. I installed fans in the back to blow air across the tops of each of them as they both have about 5" of open top venting space.. as these two are the one's that run the hotest of all my electronics. I made my shelf from 3/4" plywood and painted it semi gloss black as all my speakers and equipment are black. I pulled my cabinet a foot or so out from the wall so the speaker shelf and the TV facing you are flush at the top of the shelf, and the speaker shelf is even with the top of the TV. You can't see the shelf when you are watching TV. My C7 like my RC-62( I sold) have a threaded jack screw that go into the bottom of the speaker box (front and rear). I raised the back of the C7 up to aim the tweeter horn down at me 6.5' away. My rears are ceiling mounted and aimed down to point at the back of my head 6.5' behind the sofa.My front Cornwalls and my rear RS3-II are 6.5 feet apart so when I am setting in the center of the sofa I am in the center of two equal triangles. Your speakers will image better this way and you will notice the seperation with more detail this way. What ever the distance apart your fronts are, your setting place should be the same back. Same for the rears and both inline with each other front to back.

Look on the right of this page at Recent Images for this thread and scroll down about 28 rows or so and look for my name you will see my 2 year old Grand Son standing in front of my 55" and you will see my C7 above the TV. The C7 is 57" off the floor, the little guy makes it look taller.

Thanks… just took a look. IM ordered my F30's yesterday and will be ordering my center soon.

Hi guys,

I am looking at the Klipsch R-1650C for my in ceiling speakers for surround sound. I plan to put Front L/R and Rear L/R in ceiling (center channel as a stand alone on cabinet)

My question is how are these speakers for surround sound fronts and rears. Ive seen reviews that say they are excellent as rears but no info on using for fronts.

I dont have a huge budget for home theater i am building and am considering these as they are $65 on sale at FS and Best Buy in Canada

You will be happy for a little while as all of them will sound better then a TV speaker. My advise is to purchase a used Logitech 5.1 HT system ( I had one for my Grand Son room) that sets on stands for a starter system and don't cut on the walls. Save your $$ don't get in a hurry and purchased some nicer used larger Klipsch speakers for fronts first and work your way around. It's taken me many years to end up with what I do have now.
http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Logitech-Z-680-5-1-Channel-Home-Theater-System-/69518008 scroll down and look at the other one's used for under a $100.00.

I am a limited Klipsch owner but I am happy with my AW-650s replacing my outdoor Yamahas. A B&W fan recommended them.

Hi

I just purchased a set of F-30's from Newegg the other day and was wondering if there were any 'mods' that people recommend with these units. I couldn't resist the awesome price, so I just bought them and will be replacing my Polk Audio Monitor 50 Series II speakers with these. My Onkyo home theatre receiver (TX-NR708) is out for a free warranty repair, thus I have not had a chance to listen to these puppies yet.

No, unless you are to keep the volume on the F-30s down 100% of the time. The C-10 woofers are half the size of the F-30s. That means to hear the C-10 clearly, you will have to dumb down your F-30s to make it work.

The C-20 is the matched center for F-30s if you want to ever use the F-30s at a meaningful volume in a three channel setup.

In your shoes, I would get a C-20 and find some wall space above the TV and aim it down.

I had a mismatched smaller center (same brand but smaller than the size needed to match) for a while. Hated it.

But, if you will never be turning the F-30s up for the kids for movies, well, you might get by with a C-10 . . . But I doubt you will like it in the long run. F-30s are solid speakers. Let us know how it turns out for you.

Just my opinion.
