For my room that was the best position to put them IMO. My room is more wide than long.

I had to mount my RS-62 II's on the back wall as well. Unfortunately I didn't really have the ability to mount them on the side walls, as one side is a window and the other side is open... it'd be possible but aesthetically it would look terrible.

It's preferable to mount surrounds in a 5.x setup on the side walls, but I can vouch that is still sounds incredible on the back wall.

I have the rs-52's (not II) and have them on my back wall about 3' above my head. I can't imagine how they could sound any better with different placement. They are very detailed and blend seemlessly. There is no localization at all and I think this is from the way the horns and woofers are placed oppositely.

How it sounds is all that matters biggrin.gif. What do you have running up front?

This is how my rears are setup.



Added in my front setup, since it is buried in this thread.

It would be way easier for me to put it on the back wall. Hmm. I may just hook them up and keep them like that until I find a good way to mount them.

I'm trying to decide what would sound better - 3' above MLP on the sides, but not pointed down, vs 1' above MLP but behind the seats. Until I find an easy mount to use I will probably just use the keyhole so I can get them up and test them out, at least.

I have mine 1ft above me on the back walls. Sounds awesome. 3ft just seems a little high unless your pointing them downward.

That is what I was thinking....mount them a high up and use a gate hinge and a few chain links and aim them down at you..
One of our members did this a few weeks ago and posted pics. Great idea and not much money spent.

Have my RS-52 II placed the same way...sounds good.
Your picture reminds that I have to hide those cables and quickly tongue.gif

The klipsch manual recommends both side or back placement. More important is that it should be ABOVE ear level to avoid pinpointing the sound...creating ambiance.

I know that Led Zeppelin was good for it, along with some early Beatles stuff.

 

Afraid I don't remember.  Since I've been working in Florida, most of my CD's have been stuffed into a box (several boxes) and haven't been messed with while here.  If it turns up, I'll post the CD but, I don't remember which track.  Part of me says I'll go listen for it and another part of me says I don't want to experience that again!!

 

Actually, the voices might be faint enough that the ambient noise here (where I live in town) might drown them out.  It is pretty darn quiet out at the house, other than the crickets and frogs.

 

Another funny (to me) story...  my wife & I took our vows on our back patio.  Invited friends/family over and had a 3 piece ensemble playing music.  We have a recirculating pond/waterfall at the back of the patio and it was in front of this that we stood.

 

Well...  I live in the country....  pond....  you might expect a frog or two, right?

 

There were a couple frogs croaking during the evening and during the vows.

 

One of the guests evidently leaned over & told another guest something to the effect of "You'd think they would at least turn the speakers (frogs) off during their vows"

 

yeesh...

Guys...what is the best Sub that klipsch made (that has not been dicontinued) without going in the Paladium series?

About to go SVS, but just wanted to compare all options...including Klipsch.

Current best sub is the KS-120-THX paired with the KA-1000-THX amp. One amp can provide power for two subs. http://www.klipsch.com/kw-120-thx-subwoofer/details Set you a PM.

I guess I was assuming he meant from the home audio side, not pro or Cinema. smile.gif
I have some pretty big subs in my own system, but not that big of a cabinet.

A little off-topic, but is that a pillow on the headrest of your recliner/couch? Are you spending that much time in front of your AV rig? smile.gif

EDIT I see his blanket on the right. Thumbs UP

I mounted my surrounds at 3' so that I would be immersed in sound. I feel any lower, or pointed at MLP would make them localized. I didn't want speakers blasting right at my head so close. I guess in certain circumstances (really high) pointing twards MLP would benifit, but this is not the case in my situation.

Funny thing is that I have wire mold already painted for the wires. Not to long ago I had my room set up differently, and never moved the wire mold. Thanks for pointing that out though, gives some thing to do.
