I received my Speedwoofer 10S few days ago. Man that sub sounds great, punchy and tight. Very well built and internal bracing must be the key, no boominess at all. A true bargain at $399 selling price including shipping.

Primary set-up 5.1.4; Yamaha A2050, Paired w/Parasound P5 & ATI 500NC 2 channel amp
Revel F206 fronts & Revel M16 rears; Outlaw X12 Sub & 4 RSL C34e in-ceilings

Secondary 5.1: Denon S900W, Polk LSiM703/704C, Polk RC80i in-ceiling rears, RSL Speedwoofer 10s

RSL Speakers Owners Thread

Curious about going with an all CG-24 system x 7 channels vs CG-24's for only center or all three RLC and CG-4's for sides and rears? I'm ready to put the order in any day now and wondering if it may be worth it to put another $75 into each speaker x 7 for the all CG-24 system and then possibly getting 4 CG-4's to mount up high and aim straight down for Atmos and keep the ability with the right mounting hardware to run at a 45 degree angle for Auro 3D. I'm chasing that perfect combo of Atmos, Auro, and DTS layout with as little redundancy as possible and cannot come to a definite conclusion. Would you go with RSL in-ceiling speakers instead? I can't decide, because I want to hit all formats if possible without too much compromise on any of them. I don't mind the look of speakers mounted in the open, so that's not a concern. I have a DENON AVR 6200 for 9 of 11 channels and I picked up a Marantz 7025 Amp for the two remaining. Also curious where you all would put the Marantz in play. Left and Right up front? It's published as slightly less power than the 6200, but I'm guessing it would be more powerful in reality than the 6200 with all channels running. Possibly much more. Also going with the double wireless 10S subs and I'd love any input you have on these variations. My room is an oddball shape and about 21 x 17 with 12 foot ceilings. Hardwood floors, but lots of soft stuff in there to catch reflections though it opens up into an adjoining room and up a staircase. I'm ready to add more to catch reflections of need be. I'm using a 4K UHD Samsung 8500 at 65 inches for my monitor and may add a projector option over the top of it at some point for a bigger screen. I can go up to 8 feet wide (width, unsure of diagonal, but tall ceiling) but if I did that, I may have to reconsider RLC placement. Thank you for your assistance. Very much appreciated.

Also curious if there are any issues mixing the 4ohm CG-24's with the 8ohm CG-4's with my intended setup. It doesn't appear to be a problem to me, but I'd love some assurance if anyone knows for certain or if I should do anything different to accommodate this. Thanks!

. Currently running 5 CG24 and 2 of there subs. It's amazing. Already started saving so I could make this a bedroom system when the time come, and redecorate with the Flagship line which I can't even imagine. The current set up is truly amazing. The subs I wouldn't trade for any sub out there. The Speedwoofer is ridiculously perfect.

RSL has my loyalty until I'm dead. They put themselves into the product, and are unbelievably helpful when setting up. GREAT SPEAKERS

Curious if any release dates were mentioned. I'm ready to buy several full speaker systems and I could reluctantly wait a bit, if it means I can
get a better system.

I'm assuming you read the first post in this thread - my review of a 5.1 system - and if so, you already know what I think of RSL's products. Given that, you probably already know what I'm going to answer with regards to your upgrade question; yes, do it. The additional output means lower distortion, which in turn means even better sound quality. It's likely you'll have the speakers for a long time. If so, consider it an investment towards your future enjoyment; the pleasure you get from the system will last far longer than the thought of the additional money spent.

 
If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite...

Excellent. I'm settling on 7 CG-24's. Thanks for that. What about the top? In-ceiling, or a bold placement of CG-4's up high to take on multiple object based formats? Do you like this idea? Think it might work out well? Thank you!

For that you might want to give RSL a call. I don't have a lot of practical experience with the object-based formats like Atmos, so I'm not the best resource for you there. Howard and his son will talk your ear off on all things audio related. I'm sure they would have some guidance for you.

I have 4 RSL C34e in-ceilings for my 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos set-up

They are wonderful for both movies and music. For music alone I feel they hold their own vs. smaller bookshelf speakers. Truly an excellent choice

I can also report that the rsl c34e in ceiling speakers are truly a great bargain and sound fantastic. They hold their own with my full Goldenear setup.

I third the RSLC34e's also.

I have had them for a while paired with Wharfedale Jade's and they work and sound perfect.

If I needed new Speakers I would not hesitate to buy RSL all around.

I did up a set of plans for the rooms I'm wanting to turn into sonic havens and sent them, along with a bunch of photos to Joe for assessment. We'll see if he comes back thinking I'm completely nuts for wanting to stuff so much gear into my living room. Either way, I feel like I made forward progress and I'm really looking forward to getting whatever we come up with installed and humming along soon. My biggest obstacle is trying to figure out the best version of overhead speakers to best accommodate all three and possibly other future versions of object based audio protocol without detracting from any of them and getting the best overall format in place. I'm surprised there isn't more discussion about this aspect, since they have slightly conflicting arrangements and there should be a way to make the best of all of them without the need to declare sole allegiance to any one format before any side of this potential format war has even had a chance to take the nuclear option of putting on the porn war helmets to eliminate the competition. I seem to recall that move worked pretty well a few times in the past...

Joe did a full assessment and determined 3 CG-24's up front and 2 CG-4's coupled with 4 C34e's and 2 Speedwoofers for 5.2.4 would best cover my setup. Ordered it all today, along with a couple more C34e's for Zone 2 in the dining room and I should get them installed by the end of the week. Really looking forward to the installation and then continuing with additional rooms next. He thinks going with the dedicated Atmos layout is the best overall layout up top and I've come to the same conclusion.

Have you had the opportunity to read through this thread from the beginning? You'll find that everyone who has heard the RSL products has bought them. They also have links to reviews on their website, which could prove quite helpful as well. I haven't read all of them myself but I published one of the very first reviews ever on an RSL product, so I'm pretty sure what the other evaluations will say.

These don't get recommended alot because of their bass capability but I don't give a crap about that. The best system I've ever had for movies was the Mirage OMD-C1 center and 6 Mirage OMD-5's in 7.1 with an SVS subwoofer. All 7 of my speakers together had less cabinet volume than a typical floorstander so the fact that this system is so compact doesn't scare me away at all. So 95% of my buying decision is because of the tweeter on any given speaker and from what I hear the tweeter on these is very very good. I also love the fact that the speakers are front ported so the satellites can be put on the walls. I want to at least try out the CG24 to see if I like the sound or not.

I'm thoroughly impressed and extremely happy about my purchase. I went with the combo of a wired Speedwoofer 10 and Speedwoofer 10S wireless for my main room and a single 10S in the bedroom that is paired up with a big Klipsch Sub from my previous system. The bass from the combo in my main room is astounding and the pair was definitely the way to go. Completely fills the room without shaking the foundation full of buzzing as I had previously done with the solo Klipsch unit in order to fill the room. Clean tight responsive bass out of these things that is extremely life-like in soundtrack reproduction. I ended up with a 5.2.4 configuration with all CG-24's and music reproduction is brilliant. I'm now swapping out all my old in-ceiling speakers with the RSL units as well and could not be happier. Big pile of Klipsch gear accumulating that I can't wait to get rid of. Those big old cabinets seem archaic to me now having been replaced by sound on a completely different level.

I'm wondering if dual 10S's could fill my 2,000 cubic foot room. I have an MK5 HP at the moment but I want to downsize to 2 smaller subs.

They would have no problem in a space that size.

RSL sells stands on their website that fit them perfectly, and I agree about the pics.

That would put the tweeter at 41", in my opinion that's not too high.

I'm looking at the the C34E for adding Atmos to my less than ideal Atmos space. I was wondering if you guys answer a couple questions?

  1. Do these have a wide dispersion, or are they more focused?
  2. Roughly what is the angle of the drivers? Also, what is the range of the adjustable tweeter?
  3. Any chance you know the depth of the speaker that sits above the drywall? I wasn't clear by the site dimensions.

Thanks!

I just want to say I have the RSL sub. The original model. My friend has one of those other well known sub companies Monsters. Seriously it's as big as an end table. Anyway I like mine better. I have a horrible acoustic front room. Vaulted ceiling, open fliir plan, kitchen, dining, living area opening g to hallway. Not ideal, or close to ideal. One RSL sub sounds truly amazing on movies and music alike. Aesthetically it can't be beat. I'm saving for another. Even if I had a lot more money, I'd buy this again. Damn.
