The could be Heresy, but the mid looks front mounted.

Cowgirls are gonna get beat 31-30; although I hope they will win.

NOT .............. Cowboys are ahead 36 to 24 with less then 2 minutes to play. Those are HII.

Levi threw another TD pass!!! To the Cowgirls!

HII is my best guess, too.

The 61's are not that much larger than the 51's. I see why not, as long as you have a good Sub. My setup I do not have a sub, so I use the RB-81's for the bass. Every now and then though, I get that sudden nail on the chalkboard screech, out of the RC-42 that I have. I need to get it bumped up to something else, but right now money is tight, and do not think I can go any larger on the shelf that I have the RC-42 on, in our stand that we use for the TV & the a/v equipment.

I would try them out and see how they sound for the wide's; can not hurt anything experimenting.

I can get a brand new RF62II Home Theater System for $1200. Is it worth it to upgrade it over my current RF15 setup? Is it that big of a quality leap?

Yes.... the audio in the beginning of each show is has good bass and very detailed audio. I have DISH with the "Hopper" DVR and I really like the DD 5.1 audio it records.
I record Dexter each week and I just started to watch it this morning and remembered you posted about the audio, so I turned up my HT system and my Cornwalls (fronts)
sounded Great. Watching TV with a HT system has come a long way in the last 20 years. Look at the name of the lock on his front door during the opening scene. smile.gif

I will check out Breaking Bad...... I have also noticed a lot of Bluray movies have killer audio on the closing credits at the end.

Movie "Friday Night Lights" that I recorded off the DISH has some audio at the end of the movie

(credits)of classic R&R that was mixed Great..... theme song is good too. This is about the audio

not the movie content that you may or may not care for. If you have this movie even in DVD DD 5.1 it worth playing

the credits, cranked up just a little rolleyes.gif Mike's 4 KLF-20/C7 SVS system sounds Great jammin the DVD too. I have rear

Reference RS3-II that blend in nice with C7 and Cornwalls. Hoping someone with RF-7 or other Reference series will give it listen and post up if

sounded great to them. I guess I should start a new thread about what movies make your Klipsch "DO IT" for YOU biggrin.gif

I recently purchased a pair of RS-52ii surround speakers to use as rear surrounds. They will be mounted close to the couch as the back wall is only one foot from the rear wall. As I look at these things the positions of the horn and woofer are opposing from the one mounted on the left and right. Would there be any benefit to removing and flipping the horn and woofer so the horns that are pointed towards the listening positions rather than having one horn up top on the right and the horn on the bottom on the left?
post #26023 of 35368
I'm pretty sure they designed it like that on purpose smile.gif

I don't think your going to gain much by doing that but can't hurt to try. Mine had to be placed close as well and they sound great in their designed position.

Look on the pictures for this thread (right side of the page) several of us have posted how and what we used to wall and ceiling mount rears Klipsch.

Look for my name and you will see my RS3-II aimed down and I used Omnimount WA 30.0 wall mounts that hold 30 pound speakers.

Another member used gate hinges and a few links of chain to wall mount and point straight down. Great idea and way less expensive.

I can move the ball clamp around and tilt in 200 degrees or more while aiming down at the back of your head. This makes a Big difference for rear separation on how you mount these.

Read up on this for rear surround speaker placement. My RS3-II came with a chart and pictures of how Klipsch suggests for them to be placed for correct coverage.

EDIT I just re-read your post (looked at Tasdon ic) and sofa against the wall makes it tough for for the room correction feature to adjust the gain for a start on manual tweaking the gain them.

Wait I had to re read this...if you flip them them upside down the horn and woofer will be oriented exacty the same as right side up. Got me thinking more about it because the magnetic grills can be reversed but you would have to mod the speaker to reverse the horn and woofer but there wouldn't be enough room in the cabinet to do it.

edit: ok, after messing with my mind I see what your saying. Reversing the right and left side of the speaker and not just one side...I think lol smile.gif

That is what really bugs me about the RS series (I have the 62's), it's not that when I'm watching a movie that I hear an issue but aesthetically and in theory it doesn't seem right that they aren't mirror images of each other.

You know you own great speakers when you hear something on a cd, dvd or bluray that you've played a million times before and you say "what's that sound?"eek.gif Your first thought is I've never heard that before!eek.gif Can you say KLIPSCH?biggrin.gif

that has to do with the depth that the horn assy goes into the speaker .
they are trying to keep the cabinet small as possible so to have a mirror image means a larger cabinet offset stacking means a smaller cabinet smile.gif
might also be the magnets on the woofs would be too close to each other as well if they were at the same level tongue.gif

OR you could rebuild the cab & have both horns on one side & the woofs the other rolleyes.gif

The KSP-S6 had the woofers on the bottom, tweets on top. I guess for the bigger magnets in the RS Series, they had to reconfigure them.

I ended up having bob crites upgrade the capacitors and resolder the crossovers for my epic cf 3 version 1's. there's definitely a noticeable difference where I can hear more detail, the sound is more crisp and the bass is more pronounced. I also did some other tweaking which I'm very happy with the final results. The money invested into the crossovers was well worth it.

I had the same experience with pink floyd the wall cd. I have listened to that cd so many times. Know ever note so i thought. Hearing it on the rf-7ii for the first time was really cool. And on the cornwalls is pretty awesome too. biggrin.gif

I own the RS62II's and they are located on my back wall about 1 foot behind me and 1 foot above my ears. They are incredible surrounds and I can say I do not need any more surround speakers after hanging these up. They definately are wonderful for solo surround dutys. I am thinking about some RB61II's for front heights though. Everytime I upgrade my wife says so now your done right? I always say yep I'm totally satisfied this should be it. Ha Ha wait till she finds out I want front heights and a different subwoofer. I will wait a couple months then should be ok for next purchase. (I HOPE) tongue.gif
post #26037 of 35368
You mounted the rs-62s in the rear position? I thought they should be surrounding the listener (i.e. on either side of the MLP)?

Or do you have something else there?
post #26038 of 35368
cchunter, the RB-61IIs are on SALE now

A story I've told once/twice....  I was at home once.  As a preface, my house is about 18 miles out of the "city" (small town) isolated at the end of a dead end road, surrounded by approximately (guessing) 500/700 acres.  I am THE last house at the end of the road.  If I see your car anywhere near me then you are either:

 

1.  Up to no good

2.  Lost

3.  Expected

 

So with that preface, it was a dark quiet night.  I had a CD playing, it was Theloneous Monk.  Sitting back enjoying the CD when suddenly I heard some faint, faint voices.  I turned the volume down....silence.  My senses had heightened by now, but I turned it back up.  Then, I heard them again....very faint and barely perceptible but, they were there.  Now my fight/flight systems took over and I had nowhere to flight to so I had to prepare to fight.  At least it was dark outside (and inside) and since I helped build the house, I know the floorplan and where all the booby-traps are that you'd run into.

 

I turned things down....  worked my way over to the back door....and heard.....nothing.  Just silence with maybe a cricket chirping every now & then.

 

I slowly unlocked the lock, realizing that since I heard voices there was at least two people, perhaps more.  I did not however, see ANY headlights so this meant that they came sneeking up.

 

I turned all the outdoor lights on knowing it would semi-blind them for a moment...  and heard crickets....maybe even a frog.

 

I was perplexed.  Looked all around and nary a mouse.

 

I shrugged my shoulders, went back in and hit PLAY again....  and again, heard the voices!!!

 

This was when I finally laughed at myself.  Seems while the track was being recorded there were some people in the sound room with him.  They were perhaps across the room, whispering to each other yet, the mic still picked them up and you could just barely sense that voices were in the background.

 

It absolutely amazed me at the visceral response this created in me.  I was 100% sure that "someone" was outside and up to no good.

post #26040 of 35368
Coytee, that is a good one. What CD, and which Track was it, do you remember? There are some other old Jazz recordings out there, that you can hear the same background noise, or at the beginning or end of some of the Rock masters, you can hear dialect that they did not cut out of the recording. I know that Led Zeppelin was good for it, along with some early Beatles stuff.
