^^Your money, you have to make that decision. People on here will say YES because they like to spend other people's money.

RC-10's are great speakers, I have several pairs myself.

Maybe you'll want something brighter sounding? I advise you to listen to as many different speakers as you can.

Well I was looking at some klipsch rp-600m's but it wasn't because of how bright they are but their sensitivity that attracted me.

Plus all of the accolades they are getting doesn't hurt either.

well their high sensitivity is due to the horn tweeter...which is bright sounding. Some people get ear fatigue with Klipsch speakers so listen to them for a long while if you can.

The Reference Premiere line is supposed to be better than the standard Reference line in that regard though.

After some research I have come to a dead end because of the lack of ceiling mounting options, sticking with the RC-10's.

Maybe one day when i have a dedicated home theater room I will revisit this.

Thanks afrogt!

If you recall, I recently found a mint-condition set of Energy Take Classic 5.1 in original box, right down to the plastic bags covering each speaker and the bag holding the sub.

Last evening I brought the set along with wall-mounts, a new Deonon S540BT receiver, and cables over to my cousin's home and installed it.

Those little speakers are really quite good! He and his son were both dumbfounded by how good the whole system sounded, like nothing they'd ever heard before. The subwoofer is a bit of a disappointment. I've got the volume up to 75% now and it's still not powerful enough. I will have to get a longer cable and see if placement elsewhere helps, but where it is now it can't hold a candle to my SVS SB2000 or KEF Kube 10b.

The 4 speakers on Video-Secu mounts is perfect for their small living room, and sure looks nice. The piano black finish on them and the sub is flawless and beautiful. He was and remains very impressed.

I went from Energy Connoisseur's to the Klipsch 600m's. Fantastic speakers! They are not ear fatiguing at all. The new Reference Premieres horns on the 600m (all the new rp line) are extremely smooth, not like the old horns at all.

Highly recommended as all the reviews have stated.

Those are very good speakers you bought. Myself, I wouldn't give a dime of my money to the company that shut down the speaker maker I preferred. Yeah, I'd be bitter.

Any recommendation as for the bracket? I've had little luck in the past, trying various models including Omnimounts, but they were all either hard to work with (little space to work behind a large bookshelf with the Omnimount for example, especially tightening that hex nut), or they could not hold the speaker up without drooping, or would allow very little down-angle.

Maybe I should just build a small shelf...
Look on Amazon for "VideoSecu Clamping Bookshelf Wall Mount"

I put these into the studs and they're great for RC-10's! (and CB-20's FYI)

Those are what I just used to mount the 4 little Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers for the system I gave to a cousin of mine. While those speakers are no 14lb unit, I could tell those VideoSecu brackets are quite robust and would easily handle that load. For about $30 for 4 of them it's quite a good bargain.

I also found drilling and screwing into the wall studs to be the right way. The "drywall" mounts would have worked for those tiny speakers but would not be safe for a 14lb one.

Thanks but the problem I had was specifically that there's not studs in my exterior wall. Just 3" of insulation (with wooden slaths on top, over which goes the drywall).

Maybe I should take time to show you guys what I finally did; maybe this could help others with RC- and CB- type bookshelves with threaded holes

So here's the problem area, where I have to mount an RC-10:



The ceiling is a tile drop-ceiling, the wall has no studs, so there's only the beam left, but it runs *parallel* to the direction where I want the speaker to fire.

This is my solution:



It's a sturdy 8-in L bracket for shelves. There's 3 5-in wood screws through the drywall and beam, solid enough to do chin-ups on it (if I was able to do chin-ups I guess). The bracket is installed with a downward angle (I couldn't do more with the space I have though). I drilled a hole (a bit too close to the edge, but it's still safe) in the bracket in order to be able to screw a 3/8"-16 bolt in the back of the speaker through it.

This is a picture of the speaker with the bracket but before mounting.



The tape is only to protect the finish. There's a washer on the bolt side, but nothing between the bracket and the speaker, so as to distribute pressure on as large an area as possible. In retrospect, I should find some sort of thin rubber membrane to put between the speaker and the bracket, to increase friction and limit vibrations between the tip of the bracket and the speaker. It does vibrate when I push the subs since it's so close to a room boundary.

And this is the end result with the RC-10 mounted. Very solid, and I think rather clean looking. I'm rather happy with how it turned out, and I'll probably use the same technique for eventual surround back speakers.

Thanks! I should also add, in case it's not obvious, that it is also a very cheap solution. Of the order of five bucks all things considered.

The CB-20 I think has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole, so it may perhaps be possible to use one of the pre-drilled holes on many brackets.

Drilling the 7/16" hole (one 16th larger than the bolt) was the biggest PITA in the whole project since I did it with a hand drill. Would have been at the right spot and way faster with a good press drill.

Anyone paired the Energy Take Classic with the SVS PB-1000? I'm not sure if I like the take classic sub more than the pb1000 even though it's much smaller. Mine broke so I replaced it with the svs.

Lots of talk about Take Classic!
I have these too, and I really like the sound (paired with yamaha avr).

I also have Pioneer Fs52 (paired with denon avr) in another room, but I prefer the Energy Take Classic sound over Fs52.

Thus, I decided to replace the Fs52.

I am looking at Kef Q150. Do they sound closer to the Energy Take Classic or Pioneer Fs52?

Energy Take Classic Sub isn't in the same universe as the PB1000. The PB1000 is much much better. Plays louder, deeper, more impact.

Take satellites will be fine with the PB1000 as long as you can crossover the sub around 120hz.

Currently own KEF Q150 and used to own Take Satellites. Q150 doesn't sound close to either speaker. Way bigger sound than Take Classic sats and not as tame or mellow as Andrew Jones Pioneers. The Q150 will have more clarity and will sound brighter than the Pioneer.

The Q150 is a better speaker than both in my opinion.

Agreed!

I only have recent experience with the Take Classic 5.1 system and it's little boxes with mated subwoofer, and don't own Q150's but have heard them at my dealer's place a good many times.

No experience with the inexpensive Andrew Jones era Pioneer speakers.

I think Q150's would wipe the floor with either of them!

It shouldn't be controversial that a much larger, more expensive bookshelf speaker from a premium brand would be far superior to either (1) a tiny micro-sat that was part of a $500 package or (2) an ultra-budget bookshelf speaker.

Thanks for the reply. I went to SVS' Subwoofer matching tool and according to it the recommended crossover on the avr with the satellites plus the PB-1000 combination is 150 Hz

1) Is this a good idea the set to that high crossover even though Energy recommends 110 Hz? The –3-dB point of the satellites is 111 Hz and the –3-dB point is of center is 94 Hz.


2) My Yamaha only crossover settings are ...110,120 then skips to 160. Should I go with 120 or 160? Could I be missing sounds if I go to 160?

I would go with 120Hz. The Takes will be fine with that and the bass will be less localizable.

When you're running a high crossover you may have to work a little harder to blend the sub properly, be prepared to experiment with different placements too (for example if you pick a location where the sub has a deep null at ~100-120Hz then you'll get a suckout right where you are crossing over).

2) My Yamaha only crossover settings are ...110,120 then skips to 160. Should I go with 120 or 160? Could I be missing sounds if I go to 160?
Just to add to Batpig's response, I run my Take Classics at 120Hz for the sats and 110Hz for the center, and run SB2000's. Not quite the same as the PB1000, but close enough. i ran REW and the crossovers at multiple settings from 80Hz to 150Hz, and 120 sounded and looked the best on the graphs. I bumped the center down 10Hz as it can go a little lower and I wanted male voices to be less affected, though I have dual subs so probably not much of an issue for me.

IMO the little 8" sub that comes with the Takes is awesome for the price and size, but it won't hang with a PB1000.

Veritas Ceiling Speakers on Ebay! VGC

V1.0CM https://www.ebay.com/itm/1x-Energy-V...d02c%7Ciid%3A1

I have no need, but there are 6 and they are 20% off. The 8" ones are also available although i think you need mount kits and they don't look to be included based on photos. edit: they are included per seller, last photo shows grills attached to old construction collar.

Anyone want Qty 4 6 1/2s Veritas 1.0CM for Atmos? They look to be pulls and in very good condition. Personally I would pick up all 5 to have a spare in case something one went south.

I would also be inclined to make an offer, even without the option present. Someone will get a good deal. I have the 4 RC-6Cs myself and am happy with those for atmos in my space.

This is one of those situations where I say to myself, I have enough Energy speakers.

Here are the V2.0CM https://www.ebay.com/itm/1x-Energy-V...d47e%7Ciid%3A1

I cant believe there are 6 V1.0CM with mounting rings, and grills sitting there . Makes me want to take out my RC-6Cs and put them up for sale! They appear in excellent condition as well. I think people prefer mag grills for ceiling speakers now. I'm not saying it looks doesnt look nicer because it does, but these are pretty nice speakers for the money.

Better than the RC6C? I had the RC6C’s in my last house. I liked them.

Looks like he raised the prices. They were $71.99 each but now they are $89.99 each.

I figured he raised the price since he sold his other ones so quickly.
