post #29671 of 35227
I already have an svs so getting another to match to make duals is more beneficial to me than starting over and selling stuff at a loss that I am happy with.

Edit: that looks like a bad ass sub. Still now worth me selling my stuff for though and dealing with the headache

Good question. I'd like to know as well. I've been looking at towers and The reference towers are a bit out of my range for now so I thought about going with some of the synergy towers and a center.

I owned the synergy set and I'm suggesting you wait till you have the funds for the reference setup. You'll thank me later. Reference are that much better.

Thanks CCHUNTER I know that is what I should do but it's hard to wait. Stupid question but I see from your stats that you have all 6" series for your speakers, that would be the route I would take except for the rears which I only have room for the 4" possibly the 5". Do you think there will be a big difference in sounds from the smaller ones?

Also I see you didn't go with a klipsch sub? Did you have a klipsch and upgrade or do you not like klipsch subs?

The RS42II'S will be fine for surrounds. I had the RW -12D then upgraded to SVS. Klipsch aren't the best for subs. No offense.

Thanks, I just ordered a second one. $1500 for a sub is way out of my range. Would love it, but I have to be realistic. The wife already is bending on letting me use our income tax return for the speaker upgrade which is probably going to be about $2k if I can find a couple of good deals.

If I could find an older version of the reference like the rf-62 would you recommend it with the savings?

If the price is right sure. I would also like to listen and look at them before buying.

It should at double the price. And it won't walk all over the PC12+ wink.gif Which would be the more equivalent model to compare to, price wise.

Good morning from Australia.

Questions

What would be better a SW-310 or a SW-112 or a SW-115

What are the benifits of a tri-facing sub compared to a front firing sub?

And if I was to spurge and get 2 for my system which 2 should I get

I should mention it has to be Klipsch as I have gift vouchers to spend with the Klipsch distributer here in aus as I bought a fairly big system From them.

Any help would be great. Thankyou

And then I think my system will be done ( until upgrade bug bites lol )

Sadly the wife didn't let me go to RF7s so it is to match
6 rf82
2 rb61
2 rs62
1 rc62

Cheers
Mate did I read that right? I cant help with the sub questions sorry, but damn. 6 82s? And rs and rb speakers. What setup are you running ie: what speakers for each channel? Placement? And you must have some adequate amps and processor? Pretty keen to know more

I asked a similar question several pages back and thus began my journey. I ended up buying an RC-62. I would say the difference would be pretty significant. Much more clear, crisp voices that sound like they are in the room with you. You would notice the benefit if you watch a lot of blu rays with vocal soundtracks you like or live concerts. But all movie dialogue would be improved significantly.

I'm almost certain if you call AVScience and ask for Mike Garret you can get a brand new pair for about $500 shipped https://shop.avscience.com/crm.asp?action=contactus Just tell him you are a member of avsforum and were told you could get a good deal. I ordered 1 RC-62 and 2 RF-82s because of the deal I got there.

Haha, knew you'd like it. Back when newegg had the RW12d on sale I was doing a lot of asking on the subwoofer forums. What I gathered with my limited understanding is that the waves from the 2 subs instead of clashing with eachother kind of combine and help smooth out the waves to proved a fuller low frequency effect. It was then I decided not to replace my BIC F12 but to add to it. I would do the same if I ever got an SW-115 or something. What were the 2 subs by the way? What was the "mediocre" one. Was it similar to my RW12d?

Mind you I have no idea what those subs are capable of. But I think it's better to get 2 different "good subs" because one might give you a slight bit more of something the other doesn't. Be it, gut punch, shake, down loooow dips. Whatever. I say, if it's a great sub just get a PSA xs30 and dual it with your SVS instead of just getting another of the same sub.

Which SVS are we comparing it to? Because when I was searching his sub I vaguely remember it being $1500 and that PSAxs30 is $1149. I'm eventually gonna be in the market for a sub, probably in a years time so I'm trying to do some early research.

The problem with mixing subs is the limits of each. You might find the limit of one can't keep up with the limits of the other and have to turn down the lesser one to keep up.

I would never turn down the better sub. I would just hope the smaller sub is giving me at least some minor balancing or benefit. I agree it's better to get 2 subs in the same range but my point was I wouldn't want to get 2 of the exact same sub. I'd maybe combine a $1200 cylinder sub with a $1000 sealed or ported sub. I'm no expert now but I'm sure when I start to shop around I'm gonna ask a lot of questions as to what each might give me over the others and then make a decision on which are the best 2 types to combine.

By the way, I would put the more "limited sub" right next to the listening position. That's how I have it now. I have the RW12d in the front corner and the BIC F12 is right behind me and the couch. It really helps me to "feel" those intense scenes. I really like my sub set up now. The only improvement I could get now is a more expensive sub that goes really deep into those 20hz moments. But as far as punch, sound, and feel. I'm pretty damn satisfied right now.

Ideally, you want 2 of the same sub because of the reason told to you above.....You don't have to worry about one not keeping up with the other or one running out of steam when the other doesn't. Mixing subs can be done but not the greatest of ideas.

It works if you're not super picky. All I know is I'm satisfied. In the case you mentioned then I would want to find out which 1k sub has the best combo of everything. lowest frequency combined with most punch. But we are beginning to derail a bit, let's get back to the klipsch!
post #29690 of 35227
Yea like I said before it would be the pc12 nsd because that is the closest to what I have now.
I would rather have two subs that get 20 hz then 1 that can and one that would bottom out. A good sub will do whatever you think your two mix matched ones are giving you.
Long term it is not ideal to run different subs. My svs pounds like hell. You have to hear one to understand. It's not even running hot either. It's a tad below my other speakers right now.
The other sub is my sub-10. It has pretty good output but they tend to get muddy.
post #29691 of 35227
What would you reccomend is a good sub for my Klipsch set up? Of the ones people have mentioned I like the PC12-Plus. Looks kinda neat and sounds good. But it's technically 12" and part of me, if only a little, would want some 13" or 15" bad boy for that price range.
post #29692 of 35227
Then go with a 15. Check rhythmic , hsu, svs, ect. Lots to choose from, but go with a company who specializes in subs
But any of the svs 12's would blow either of your subs out of the water.
Even their pb-1000 would probably kill that 12d

Curious to see what the 12d woofer looks like. I have posted pics of my svs drivers and they are pretty damn hefty for their "budget line" drivers
post #29693 of 35227
Do you think $600 for a PC12-plus is a good deal? I found a guy selling two at that price for each.

IIf I got the pb-1000 which of my current 2 do you think I should pair with it? I guess I should try it out aha. But $500 for something that would "kill" my rw12d is an investment I wouldn't mind making sooner rather than later.

Pair it with the RW12D or why not sell both subs and that would pay for the cost of a PB-1000. Then get one more PB. I paid 279.99 for my RW12D at Newegg. Had it for a year and sold it for 275.00 just a couple months ago. They are in high demand because Newegg quit selling them. I'm assuming ran out of stock.

post #29697 of 35227
Yea I would sell both and use that money to fund either one great sub or two better subs

That 12plus for $600 sounds like a great deal. Aren't they like $1200 new?


Here are pics of the rw12d driver.
Look at post 142 I believe it is
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1420999/klipsch-rw-12d-subwoofer-only-299-save-70/120

Here are pics of my two svs drivers


Here is the old img driver from 2003



You can see the 12.3+ driver aside of it that is now in my tube is even bigger.
This is why no one pays retail for the 12d and says its a good sub for the sale price.
No doubt it's probably a nice sub, but not of quality of the internet only sub dealers
post #29698 of 35227
you really think one 10" sub would sound better than my 2 combined? They do have a 12" for $200 more. Maybe I'll call SVS and ask them some questions. I wonder but I'll leave my SVS questions to the SVS thread. If you want to continue discussing, join me there!
post #29699 of 35227
See you over there
post #29700 of 35227
Thank you for the response everyone. I will be searching for some deals on a RC62.
