The center is on a shelf and I do have it angled up. I will try bringing it forward also.

Thanks again!
even @ flush it affects the sound I found with my RC-62 & later with my RC64 that having them over hang the shelf by an inch made a big difference
a over hang even made a difference with my horizontal CS-1.5 center when I had placed that huge speaker in a entertainment center as well .
This has lead me to do away with using a entertainment center as a place to hold my Equipment , I now have the amps ,AVR, Bluray player,sat box , power conditioner off to side on rack , the display is wall mounted , the center is on it's own with a small table holding it up .
My new CornScala center will have a free standing system so that even the table will be gone .
I find that having the equipment off to side is better experience anyway as that keeps all the equipment's small LED lights outta my sight lines . wink.gif

You are Welcome. smile.gif Thanks for posting the pic. One of us should post a pic this on the Klipsch factory forum. I used his Nakamichi banana plugs on mine, they seem to be about as nice as the Sewell Silverback banana plugs I purchased for the Niles speaker A/B box I use. .Did you look at his other products as they have some cool 8MM Gold plated spades with set screws to connect the speaker wire (not a crimp style) that are cheep made spades.
I used 4 of them for my bedroom sub (Heresy II) my vintage Kenwood Receiver does not have a LFE line out. They will fit other speakers that have the threaded shaft that a bare speaker wire goes thru and snug the Red/Black plastic nuts down on them. The Gold plated spade is threaded on the connector shaft that has set screws to hold the speaker wire. Good quality parts like the one's on our Cornwalls. Post up when you install the CT-125 tweeters.they are awesome. No affiliation to that seller..... just posting some good quality connectors that work.

If you go to Audio>Audyssey>Dynamic Volume: it was set "Medium."
1.If I set it to off can I do damage my Rf-62 II?

2.it was at medium....wont that lower performance?

I've been noticing when watching movies. I turn up the volume so I can hear the dialog, but during an action scenes its extremely loud and I find myself having to turn it down. When I get the volume to where it sounds good durning the action scenes and it goes back into dialog its hard to hear them again. Sounds muffled.

I would say that you are getting exactly what you paid for... those peak sound signals during action sequences is the klipsch efficiency delivering the goods. I don't think any of this is related to the speakers per say but the settings.

your old setup might not have been giving you all the sound you were supposed to get during those peak levels and Klipsch is surprising you as to what you have been missing.

Why do you prefer it off? It seems like you can hear the full spectrum audio when its off, right?

^^DV is like sound compression which I don't want. I only turn it on when I am not watching a movie in my theater (my main living room system) at night and don't want to disturb my wife and children.

Anyone bi-wiring their speakers? I have a nice pair of canare bi wire cables (6 ft.) with Nakamichi banana plugs I'm gonna put on CL but thought I'd offer here first.

identical to these:

PM me if interested

I don't personally think it will make a lick of difference.

My new horns were showing delivery on friday so when i got home today i had a big smile on my face when i saw Bobs ct-125 horns in the box by my door waiting for me smile.gif.

Man I'm getting really tiered of taking all those screws out and putting them back in. eek.gif

My opinion so far is good. I did notice they are not as loud as the other horns. Not sure if thats because they are more refined or because they just are not as sensitive. I have read they are less sensitive so i guess thats probably it. I have a 22 band EQ i use and i had all the top and mid down at -1 to -3db already so i just bumped the 6khz to18khz area to around 0. So still all at 0 or less beside a little low end.

They sound really nice and have that same k77 sound but a tad smoother. I don't want to say less harsh because i didn't find the k77 harsh at all. But these are really clean and clear.

I have spent a ton of time with these corns in the short time i have had them so i noticed the change right away. I think they have better stereo image when the music pans back and forth. And the top end is a little more dynamic (sound a little faster with control). Need more time with them to give a better review. So far only had them running about an hour.

are you guys talkn' bi-amping ? ? ?
If so Tasdom was / is just selling a dual cable that Can be Used for bi-amping , So he's not really extolling the virtue of bi-amping
lotsa time bi-amping a speaker means that they are using a active crossover & that cable would be very nice to do that with as in that case , there is separate amp section for both the HF section & the woofer in a speaker that the crossover is being done in the processor , split into hi/low
there by needing a dual channel cable
BUT Bi-amp meaning that you would use two channels of amplified signal outta a AVR / amp to supply more (double ) watts to a speaker that has a passive cross-over that kind of bi-amping is totally useless IMO
that kinda bi-amp sounds like it should work but in reality it does not

IIRC they run 3 dBs below a K-77 in spl (so adjust them up to that point & your good to go ) they also go way way higher than the K-77 does as well , that's where the sparkle comes in biggrin.gif
I really like them , there are tweeters that some of the Heritage guys use that cost 7X as much & not near as good wink.gif

RH flush mount them puppies & they sound even better , you get a reflection of the motorboard hole when mounted from the inside cool.gif
you loose something like a center would back in a shelf in a entertainment center does .
The CT-125 has a wide dispersion angle so the motorboard gets in the way somewhat

if that's the case then have the fronts router out to make shoulder/inset
you only need the less than a 1/4" cut inset & the grills will still fit over them
the same thing would apply if you ever made them into CornScala's & added a large horn ,
with the wood horns they are made to mount from the inside & there is no edge as they match flush to the motorboard

The Cornwall II & III are all outside flush mounts they shim the grills out to clear the horn edges .

Great speakers. Really glad i bought these. No buyers remorse at all for speakers that i had zero need for. biggrin.gif

So now if my house starts on fire i got two sets of speakers to lug out the door. I guess the RF-7ii can be replaced though. eek.gif

You found a good looking pair. They have a great looking color and finish. I bet if I used a router and did the flush/front mounted horn mod on my 1979 Cornwall like a II or III, I bet you could NOT hear much difference.

Mine are 6.5 feet apart and same distance back centered and towed "IN" 45 degrees. It's like giant head phones in my small den. biggrin.gif I am Super happy with them like they are.

My (new to me) Class A amp was a nice surprise, almost tube like without the tube maintenance . I love those CT-125 and Bob's new Type B networks. After all these years of owning them

they have never sounded better. I am sure this small room is a major factor. That I am playing more 'Blues" and acoustic guitar music now that I have aged a bit more. cool.gif

Enjoy them and your new CT-125 Thumbs UP. I adjust the tone controls every time I change a CD etc................. play with that wide band EQ.
