Your speakers are too close to the wall behind. Though that is moderated by the fact that you have a Subwoofer, and presuming that your AV Receiver is set to SMALL, so deep bass is not sent to the Front Speakers.
I would speculate for the best sound you need at least 12" behind the speakers.
Klipsch has made a major break through in the RP-Series by using a Rubberized Horn
. In the past some said the Klipsch could be "shouty",
which was most likely the plastic Horn resonating, The new Rubberized Horns don't do this, so upgrading to them is a serious upgrade. You can find countless reviews on the Klipsch RP-Series
all very positive. In fact Stereophile Magazine
recently reviewed the 6.5" Klipsch RP-600 Bookshelf
, this is their conclusion - Super-Highly Recommended.
The RP are still characteristically Klipsch, but more refined and controlled. They are actually in their second generation of Rubberized Horns in the RP-Series.
I'm surprised it took them so long. It has been well known for decades that if you have "Shouty"
horns, you can tame them by gooping on Silicone or Butyl Rubber caulking in a layer onto the horns.
Again, check reviews on the Klipsch RP-Series
, nothing but positive rave reviews.
The RP are a substantial upgrade from the more common R-Series, and a very substantial upgrade from the older R-Series.
I believe you can still get the previous RP-Series on deep discounts. Here are equivalent products in the Newer and the previous RP-Series -
Just a few thoughts.
