Thx Trunkz Jr and pcweber111 for the nice comments.

But if my wife sees your posts she might get a little offended. It is not a rug. It is a quilt, you know, like a blanket, that you can use to keep you warm. It can be used on a bed or you can hang them like I did.

Thanks for the comment lokimydog. Our subs don't get much buzz on this forum. They don't know what they are missing. I haven't seen you post on the Official ULS-15 thread. How long have you had them and what veneer did you get?

Nice setup. Comfy looking. I love that you have different subs for the different ranges in the lower frequencies. It makes me happy to know that maybe someday I can have a few subwoofers in my setup! Subwoofers are wonderful!

Hello HTGeek!

I apologizing for not posting back in August, but I've been on hiatus for a while, but, I'm back!

The Klipsch Forte's look great and I'm sure they sound amazing. My question is regarding the RC52 Center Channel. A vastly difference design, isn't there a timbre change when a scene in a movie delivers the sound across all three fron channels? And if so, is that acceptable. My next question is, have you tried to find a Heritage Series center channel to match the Forte's?
http://www.klipsch.com/na-en/products/academy-overview/

Overall, you have a very imposing system..... 4 subs!
That's truly "A low-end theory!"

Regards.

What a coincident. I was looking at your system early today on Blu-Ray.com.

The Fortes really got great sounding after I installed the Bob Crites Xovers early this year. I also installed the Titanium diaphragms.

I actually had an Academy prior to getting the RC-52. But it was too big to use with my new credenza so I sold it to a fellow member at the Klipsch forum and got full price for what I payed for it back in 1993. I got to listen to a great center channel for 13 years at no cost.

Believe it or not the RC-52 actually sounds better for dialogue than the Academy. Even my wife likes it better. Also were it is position on the credenza the tweeters are all aligned. It hangs out about 2 inches from the lip so there are no reflections.

I was debating getting the RC-64 but it would cover the TV speakers and IR sensor. My wife only wants to turn on the HT system for movies or music. I also listen to the news with just the TV speakers so the RC-64 would have been to big.

Thanks for stopping by and now let me go back and look at your fine system again on Blu-ray.com and leave a comment. Sorry I didn't do that earlier today.

Just curious, how did you split the signal to go to the four subs? did you just get splitters and all go out the same LFE channel? I am starting to look around at subs now (maybe epik sentinel or hsu vt3 mk3) and was wondering how you had it set up.

Hello again notChris,

Yes, since the Yamaha AVR only has one sub out I use three 1 male to 2 female Y adaptors. I then run one RCA cable to each sub either behind the credenza or for the ones in the back of the room under the floor since I have a basement. I have no hum issues and no drop in signal strength.

Both your choices for subs or good choices.

Hello, hometheatergeek!

How are you doing!

I have a quick question, have you auditioned the HSU's before you bought them, and what else was on you list if any? Are the HSU's indeed more "musical" as some suggest?

(I love that Denon deck player!!)

Thanks!!

Nice, clean setup you got there. I'm a former A2000-er myself and enjoyed it immensely. (It, the A2020 and, of course, the A3000 are probably the last of the all-time great RPTVs.)

No, this was a blind buy after 9 months of research. I had the Seaton Submersive, Epik Dragon or Dynasty, and the PB-13 Ultra on my list. The SubM would have been my number 1 choice, but since it was going into a family room at the time, there were no finishes available. Same with the Epiks.
The Ultra was too deep in length so they would not fit in the places I wanted to place my subs.

But I got to tell you I was completely surprised by the ULS-15s ability to play bass notes with such accuracy. I am also amazed at there ability to play extremely loud when needed. To do a blind buy like this and get, what I feel is, one of the best choices out there beside the Seaton SubM was a pleasant surprise.

I have been to audioguy's house and heard his two SubMs and will be going back soon to hear his now 4 SubMs and the Seaton's SubM and the ULS-15s are the best overall subs out there at their prices. Equally adept at music and movies.

I have to add one disclaimer. I believe the ULS-15s must be bought either as a Dual Drive or Quad Drive in order to get the overall output needed for HT. Unless, of course, it is going into a small sealed room.

The Denon deck still plays my cassettes of DJ music that I mixed back in the late 80s and early 90s. And they have never sounded as good as they do now on the ULS-15s.

Thanks for stopping by my AV friend.

Welcome BasicBlak to my home. My wife does do quilting professionally. If you are interested, I bet she would make another one for you. Of course with the AVS member discount.

My A2000 is still looking great and I have yet to change the bulb however it is getting close. I bought it in November of 2006. I believe it is around 6500 hours now. Which reminds me, I better check it this weekend.

Thanks for looking.

Hey there HTG. Awesome setup you have! And the quilt rocks too!

It's great when the Mrs. gets involved with our hobby. Unfortunately, my wife's (who already thinks I'm nuts) involvement consists of "why do you need a new amp?" "What's wrong with your old blu-ray player?" But when she wants something, "honey, we need new blinds." C'mon! Blinds just aren't as fun as a new blu-ray player or amp.

Congrats on an awesome system, HTG!

(Emphasis added.)

Geek, I sure was hoping you'd say that! I will definitely be PM'ing you soon...seriously. Looking forward to it, my friend.

Glad to hear your A2000 is holding up well. I visit with my old one occasionally whenever I stop by my brother's place. He's always first in line for my electronic hand-me-downs, so to speak. (His purchase helped me to step up to the A3000 with minimal damage to my wallet.) Fortunately, he's taken great care of it. As I recall, his bulb hours are pretty close to yours. However, he definitely needs to change his, as it's noticeably dim now. (He's got one on order.) Might not be a bad idea to have one at the ready yourself. They're dirt cheap (relatively speaking) these days, so it's good to be prepared.

Well I checked the bulb timer, in the service menu last night, and I was right at 5915 hours. This means I have been averaging around 2000 hours a year.

If the bulb truly has an 8000 hour life I should be getting a bulb by next summer. Or maybe I'll just take your advice BasicBlak and get it sooner than next summer.

I'll let the misses know that she might have to make another HT quilt soon.

What could you possibly buy as an upgrade? You have one of the best combination of equipment I have ever seen.

Hi HTG.

Lol. Thanks for the compliment. Sadly, I've been bit by the upgraditus bug (damn bug). There's always something else tempting and teasing me. So Santa, if you're reading this...I've been good this year... I have.
