I just want to try them before I let them go. I really don't have a spec for them so i will get something smaller on walls maybe RB a RS series.
ahh im with you now. Yes the synergy towers are excellent for surrounds, but yea will not work if you dont have the space. Im glad you at least sampled them 1st, its a shame you cannot keep them. Im thinking rc series as rear surrounds still...

No problem, I was just referencing some amazing music in general, not for bass. But glad to hear your enjoying it!

If you want some good material for bass, and that's free, I recommend downloading episodes of the podcast Going Quantum. Hours and hours of awesome dubstep. The audio quality is quite nice too. (iTunes/Soundcloud)

Trap City on youtube is pretty awesome too.

I have always been a bass head (used to run twin 12" subs in my old toyota celica gt4 when I was a hoon) but have recently started to broaden my musical horizons. Classical, jazz or anything instrumental sounds really good on a quality system (I at least think my system has some quality components)

I think it is a great idea to try it surround with RC.I'm very happy with my RC-62II of course 64II is different league but still 62II is very good. I will go with RS-52II or 62II for surrounds and then surrounds back maybe another RS pair or RB will see. But today it was my first time to set up 7.1 and it made :) on my face. It is amazing how better it is.

great to hear you are enjoying your system!! Yes the rc62ii is great, it did me well until I got the big boy.. and is doing good things as single rear surround, so 2 could be twice as good?

the rc64ii? Yes. Couldnt be happier (unless I had rf7iis, or RF83s, or rf7s...) some say they dont timbre match, but to that I say it sounds better than the RC62ii so I dont really mind

1 step at a time is exactly what I have done, and in the end you will have an amazing system. And yea the price!! Here in NZ it cost me $2100 for the rc64ii, thats more than I payed for my rf82iis. I couldnt afford it but I got it anyway. Glad I did though

Good stuff

RB 61 II for mains...

 

Few questions...

 

1. Would a pair of these would be adequate with a quality subwoofer (i.e. SVSPB2000, PSAXV-15, HSUVTF3... or similar $800 shipped ID sub) compared to a RF-62 tower. My thoughts are that a quality sub would more than make up for this. I've never had a set up like this (good sized bookshelf with very good sub) in my home, but I have heard this set up in show rooms and have been thoroughly impressed. The imaging and accuracy of the RB61 was very impressive.

 

2. I feel forced into only going with wall mounting, can anyone suggest a quality mount for these? If I do stands, does anyone have any experience with some that are relatively child proof (he responds well to set boundaries etc, but just in case he bumps it etc)?

 

3. Will there be an issue with wall resonance, and or harsh reflections due to the proximity to the wall if I do the wall mounting option? 

 

 

The room is 18x17, sealed, 2800 cubic feet

Here is a link on the RB-61http://hometheaterreview.com/klipsch-rb-61-bookshelf-loudspeaker-reviewed/

RF-62 http://hometheaterreview.com/klipsch-rf-62-floorstanding-loudspeakers-reviewed/

The RF-62 would be more child friendly as most stands for smaller book shelf speakers are not really kid friendly.

I have listened to several in wall HT speakers and was not impressed VS what you are looking at.

For 2.1 stereo music (big room) I would save up for a pair of fronts with larger woofers and a 3 way but that is just me.

I have listened to the SVS and HSU subs and liked them both. I like the SVS a bit better YMMV. Don't get in a hurry on the fronts, look/listen at others too.

Yeah, I've google machined both klipsch speakers, so I'm pretty up to date on the reviews.

Of course the RF would be the 'best' at child friendliness, but I'm sure someone has pulled off stands with kids without incident. What did they do?

I'm referring to wall mounted, not in wall.

Yes, three Klipsch Heresies would be awesome, but that's not what I want to spend right now.

My guess is the difference between two rb and two rf would be marginal with the proper sub (like one of the three mentioned), but wanted confirmation

It's not a budget concern or need to 'save up.'

I know what dubstep is, does that count?

You gents are right about U.S. members not knowing your prices. If you haven't, suggest you put your location in your profile.

C&T, I gave $250 for my last pair of Heresy II; $400 for the pair in my profile pic.

I never said you didn't see, hear or feel what you did.....(although its possible your bias played into it.....its called the placebo effect). What I did say was that there are many, many different reasons you could have seen, heard or felt what you did, and not for the reason you were implying.

My point in "letting you know" was so that others don't come into this thread, read your "experiment" and think external amps perform magic. They are typically one of the worst bang for the buck upgrades for most applications.

I agree we've beat this poor horse to a pulp, so lets drop it. Heck, I don't even know why I'm still in this thread. I just came here to help caloyzki find some audio happiness.....but i see thats pretty much a lost cause.

OK if money is no problem don't waste it on small 6" drivers for a room that large. I have several small Grand Kids and if I had book shelf speakers on stands

I would bolt the stand to the floor to keep it from falling over and secure the book shelf speaker to the top of the stand. I spent big bucks back in 1979

for a pair of new Cornwalls and they have been my fronts for all these years and never found the need to upgrade. Go Big on the fronts ONE time

and build around them. Good luck as "Guessing" on the two you are looking at for that size room is a crap shoot.

I liked the music.
Is this music dub step ??
I am older generation, so if not take mercy on me.
Please post link to a good example.
