thanx for confirming . i had this feeling it is the placement and the amp itself. the levels of mains and rear have white noise and center pink noise as it is only one with eq settings hence the difference in sound.

Is the 52 a Bipole? Dipole?

Theoretically, the bipolar 52 speaker approaches a 360° sound field and they do not need to especially straight next to the listener and it has greater localisation. you can turn them a bit forwards or backwards if there straight in line with listener position. works out great.

My Klipsch setup is selling fast. All I have left is my RC-64ii (Black Ash). Visit the Audio Gear classified page for a great deal on a fantastic center speaker!

Thanks guys!

My preamp with MultiEQ XT32 came last night. Audyssey set all speakers to -12dB. I'm thinking I told you wrong before. I must have set the -9.5dB level for the front La Scala's manually using REW and a calibrated mic on my MultiEQ XT AVR.

I ordered these 10dB attenuators to put between the preamp and the amp:
http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/555-17825

You can just raise levels and it won't affect MultiEQ, but it will offset the DynamicEQ. The main reason I ordered the attenuators is to cut down on pink noise from the preamp (which is a tiny bit softer than my AVR, but noticeable within 3-4 ft of a La Scala. The ATI AT2007 is overly sensitive and the Marantz output has a much wider voltage range than the clipping voltage of the ATI.

One neat thing I noticed is the XLR cables from the preamp allowed me to run the AT2007 in differential mode and now there's no noise from the amp. Before when I turned on just the amp, I could hear pink noise. Now I hear nothing with just the amp on. Even if my ear is within 1 ft of a La Scala. This is because the RCA connections before bypassed the differential amp's noise cancelling abilities. I guess that's something to look for when you buy a preamp is XLR connections, if your amp is a differential amp.

Oh, my bad, Wasn't sure. I try not to "advertise" just for the sake of making money but more so new people visiting here might see a deal they can afford which gives them the chance to jump into this particular speaker line or model.

Still working on all he details. The JBL's are on the way. Ordering the screen soon. Trying to decide on projector upgrade or not. And need to re-do my second row riser to make a little more seating distance for my first row. Also need to do a few small cosmetic changes to accompany the new screen.

I'm hoping, as long as work is forgiving, that I can be done with everything by middle of January. I've learned to take my time when upgrading, so no rush.

definatly a good center indeed. you make someone really happy with this thing.

never rush.. certainly not with cinema setups. things are hard to change after and you'll find better solutions in the time taken for it all.

just tested my new screen. its a roller curtain from ikea :D

Hello All, finally able to afford Klipsch and went to listen to them last night. I think I have figured out that this is what I am getting. I have a couple of space limitations so I am hoping to get some answers here. I already have an RW-12D and here is what I am hoping to get. This is an open room configuration and will be used for both movies, tv and music. I already have a Yamaha RX-V773.

Fronts: RB61 II (2)
Center: RC62 II (1)
Sides: RS52 II (2)

There is no way I can afford the RS62 II. Will I have any issues with the center being bigger than the bookshelves. I have no way to do floor standing speakers in the front.

Any thoughts.

I think you meant center being bigger than surrounds. I use the RS52II's with a bigger center and towers and they keep up just fine. You should be fine with that set up.

Enjoy!

it'll do.. just put the trim for the RB61 a bit higher. the music enhancer 5.1 is a good tool to see if the're evenly loud.

Actually I didn't even think of that. I was talking about the center have more drivers than the bookshelves. But I guess it would be the same thing with the rears. Thanks for the info.

Thanks Dajojo, how would I put the trim a little higher for the bookshelves? Is that the level that you are talking about? Also what is the music enhancer? Is that one of the DSPs?

think he means the bookshelfs.. the RC-62II and RS-52II are perfect matched

its in the speakersetup menu. these slider with the noise comming with them. music enhancer 5.1 is for compressed music like mp3 aac and such but it works good for leveling output and its one of the dsp indeed on ur yamaha.

My budget on receiver is up to 1,300. Here's my short list. 
onkyo TX-NR828
denon avr-3311cl
PIONEER VSX-1123-K
denon x3000

can onkyo TX-NR626 or TX-NR627 power those speakers? When I'm selecting the receiver I always look at the RMS per channel. is that correct?



here's my room drawing. 




In the future I'll be extending it to 7.1. Will RF 62 ii work as side speaker and RB 61 as rear? or should I get RS 62 II or RS 52 ii as rear?

Spend less on the AVR and more on the sub(s).

A pair if SVS pb1000s for $950 is the best least expensive dual sub setup. At $1000 you have the HSU VTF 15 and then several more great choices in the under $1500 range.

A good sub or subs will have a far greater impact on your ht sound than an expensive AVR will.

Also, move that sectional into the room so that (1) you are closer to the screen and (2) you are farther from rear surround speakers.

I suggest 12 AWG wire from monoprice. Get the in-wall kind if you can hide the wires in walls or drop. ceiling.

DITTO on a pair of good subs for HT.... one really good/expensive one will do just fine in a smaller room like mine.

Finally got my system the way I want it! I have the RB 81 ii system I'm upgrading my SR 5006 Marantz! I want to go simple no external amps. I'm thinking
Txnr 929
SR 6008
Which would be better for my setup I have had onkyo and Marantz before!
