post #27871 of 35275
So, maybe this would work best... What do yal think?

UPA-200 (2 x 125wpc) to power my front towers (KF-28)

UPA-500 (5 x 80wpc) to power my center and side/rear surrounds (C2 / VS-14 / VS-14)
post #27872 of 35275

Well that sounds good if I can get away with the 200W option ( Minister of war and finances could be the problem there ).

 

Maybe I will wait to see what the other quotes come in as and if in budget then ill be able to sell my 2 existing amps and upgrade.

 

So excited

Or I could do what you are looking at doing.

 

SO MANY CHOICES :(

 

do you have to have the same power across the board so the preamp knows what to do?

Finally found the perfect solution for my Samsung F8000 not fitting on the RC-62 II.

My solution, a custom build plexiglass stand.

Is this why the Heresy line is held in such high regard?

I gotta say the more I listen to my new reference setup I am enjoying these Rf82's
a ton more.!
My svs sub is down until tomorrow and I didn't want to bring my klipsch sub back upstairs, so I decided to play with 2 channel mode for some music today to see what the towers can do.
I set them to full and xover at 40hz and I must say I am quite impressed with the bass output! Even with my room and setup being far from optimal.
Totally different machines when driven with some more wattage and full range.

Same here with my new RF62s. Even with only 50 watts they sound incredible.

Curious though, why would you set a crossover if not using a sub? Is that to limit the output in the lowest range?

Thanks
post #27880 of 35275
I guess since I set full range that didn't help anyway

Good show! What other speakers do you use? I'd use the Pioneer as a Pre-amp & buy an external amp to power Front 2, or 3, or maybe all 5, depending on listening habits (source type & how loud?)

Wasn't getting much of a response in the main forum so figured I would try my luck in a dedicated Klipsch thread.
I have 4 in ceiling CS-650-R speakers in my new place (600 sq ft studio) that have been installed by the former tenant.
What would be a good budget center speaker (200 or less) that would match? Would it ideally be a Klipsch?
Looking at the 500W 5.1 Yamaha Receiver and the small Dayton 800 sub as well to complete the setup.
Any comments or suggestions about the center specifically or the setup in general would be appreciated.
post #27887 of 35275

Anyone familiar with the RC-500, RS-400 limited edition speaker line?  Are they the same or similar as the reference line?

Look on that auction site and Klipsch factory forum for nice used Klipsch RC-62 the RC-62II are the newer model and more expensive and not many used one's for sale.
I had a RC-62 for several years and liked it with my Cornwalls but I sold it and purchased a older used Klipsch C7 (bigger tweeter horn) as my Cornwalls are so huge I had to run up the gain on the Rc-62 to get it to blend in. Try to purchase the best center speaker you can afford for 5.1 DVD/Bluray audio.

Thanks for the reply. I like the idea of getting a good used Klipsch center. Even used the RC62 is still a bit over the budget but I will consider it. Are there other similar more affordable ones to look at? I saw that the RC42, RC52 and RC3 look more affordable - are any of this a notable alternative?
Thanks agan!

Check my signature. wink.gif

They are the same as the last version of the Reference line, this per Klipsch tech support. The specs on the towers and bookshelf models differ from the current version in that the crossovers were lowered on the current version. The RC-500 (RC-52) is identical in published specs with the current RC-52II as is the RS-400 (RS-42) with the RS-42II. Dimensions, weight, crossover........ all the same. There is a slight visual difference as the woofers are a different color and a slightly different shape.

I can't tell much about the surrounds since they really don't see much action in movies that I have watched so far and I don't listen to multi-channel music. But the center is fantastic. A bigger upgrade than the mains in some regards.

I don't have access to discounted Klipsch prices out here, so I saved $370 over what the current versions would've have cost.

I sold my mint black RC-62 for $225.00 plus $25.00 to ship. I assure you the extra $50.00 is worth the wait for you to save for, all the others sound good in a small/medium room

as I looked at them too when I purchased mine. I am retired and have budget my monthly SS check carefully. IMHO wait and save just a little more, it is worth the wait. The center

is one the most important in a 5.1 HT system. The RC-62 just had a more natural sound to it vs the RC-42/52 I listened to. Play them all at a lower level and they will be OK

but later on you will be up-grading everything. wink.gif enjoy what you do choose.

The RC52II is a good center and would think it would do fine with those ceiling speakers. Ofc the 62 is better but for your setup I think you'll be more than happy with the RC52II.

I like ATI amps too. The AT2007 I bought is top notch and made in the US. I'll always be skeptical of these internet companies who contract out to foreign manufacturers. Not saying there's anything wrong with that, but I am saying I have more faith in a company with their own factory that uses top quality parts and hires Americans. http://www.classicaudioparts.com/ is where I bought my amp from; they are a division of the ATI that sells overstock and factory b-stock. It's definitely worth calling them if anyone is looking for an amp.

I play loud, too. 105-110db at MLP.

Is the the Reference line made in America?
post #27896 of 35275
Some Reference is assembled in ArKansas, I think.

The 2 I own(ed) were made in China.

40 is very deep fast ,love it but it might too much even for me i did also try full band again way too much bass and i love it in music but movies i think i might just stick at 80hz ,maybe cauz my sub doesnt work at 40 i don't hear it working ,i don't see in the back that it goes down to 60 and nothing else maybe i am missing something .but anyways i love this amp guys it feels really solid .is there any bad sides except energy bill slightly higher ?
can i hurt the amp if i watch tv long hours and keep it on long time or is it ok ? btw it's dead silent when i pause movie/show or music i am again very impressed i have lotr fellowship on right now and the last battle is rocking ,i know this scene and watchrd it a million time that center neve sounded that crisp and airy /natural......
xpa all the way ,maybe on day the umc 2 if anything happens to the onkyo 818
