I've always pictured 4 rc64ii's recessed vertically into my walls as surround sides and rears. Lol

Getting the boxes in the room is really the hard part. You open the top of the box, install the feet, and then gently drop the box on its side and rotate it up to the "bottom" side of the box (it will be upside down). The other problem may be if your ceilings are 9 feet. You have to lean (with help) the box to a 45 degree angle to be able to pull the box off of the speaker that is sitting on the ground.

Once the boxes are removed, you can sort of "walk" the speakers - hopefully on carpet - to their spots. The center comes out of the box simply, but manhandling it to a higher spot, might require help.

Man! I wish I could get new speakers EVERYDAY!!

The RF7ls are 27 lbs heavier than the RF82lls. I'll bet you can handle it.

I'm sure you'll be very happy with the 83's in your system. I have a very odd combination of Klipsch speakers for my 7.1 setup (see my sig), but I smile every single time I fire 'em up!!

Not really Klipsch related...but they're in the picture at least! I purchased a new TV stand from Boltz to replace my VTI stand and I'm really happy with it. It keeps my TV secure as I was really afraid a decent quake would send it crashing on top of my center channel speaker. And no, I am not a fan of wall mounting TVs at all for a number of reasons.

How does that RC-64 sound on the floor? I know I had my RC-62 on the floor and I was having problems with it. Bought an expensive stand just to get it a tad higher. One of my road blocks to ever getting an RC-64 is the $500 stand I bought would be useless. So I'd have to go out of my way buying a whole new stand again.

It sounds great. The stand I'm using is adjustable in terms of speaker angle. I've had quite a few folks over for movie viewing and music listening and nobody has ever commented on the front channel sounding off or weird.

I really like your setup, especially with the dual SB's. Now just get yourself an XMC-1 to match with the XPA-5

I wish I could afford to upgrade to the 7II/64II right now. I'm sure there are good deals out there too, just not in the cards unfortunately.

Turn it up!

Question

My entertainment center is expandable, so before the current 78" TV, there was a 58"; and I could only squeeze my RC10 in vertically (it was, and still is, matched to my R3650WIIs as far as I can tell; Audyssey always puts it at 80Hz). Now I'm thinking I should stand it back up!

Anyway, I was thinking about upgrading the RC10 to a RC62II (aesthetically, same-sized copper cones), or would a single RB61II be a better match sonically? 99.9% movies in this location, my receiver is 100w per channel @ 8 ohms. Thanks to anyone who can chime in

Because it's not just about the depth, it's about the TOTAL VOLUME. I did the math. Based on the same thickness walls, the BIC PL-980 is larger than the Klipsch RF-82II in interior volume (that's figured with single-thickness baffle. With a double-front baffle, they are within .1% of each other).

You should not run a speaker that was designed to be horizontal vertically, and vice versa.

That being said, a vertical speaker is best for the CC (if it's designed as a vertical speaker ).

Yea. know what your talking about. I justified mine with three things. 1. I had a buyer for my RF 52 II system - all speakers - then "luckily" the receiver (Biggest deciding factor) 2. I Reeeeeealy wanted them (not a real justification, but the drive that made me "click BUY" after a few beers) and 3. I told myself "After four to six different speaker upgrades, - this will be my LAST set". I really wish I would have done it sooner, somehow saving me money (again, a stupid self justification!).

Even after selling the old system, It hurt $$ to buy these. But I found them as cheap as I could, did my week+ waiting for delivery, and months later, the $$ pain is over.

Yeah I would love those as they'd pretty much be my final stop dream front soundstage (I mean you'd have to have a ton of money if a $3.5k front 3 speakers weren't your final upgrade). But it's not in the cards for me. Perhaps some day I will get to track down some used ones, many years in the future. I'm pretty happy with my 62s with my 2 PCNSDs though. Good sound. I just keep imagining how much fuller and richer the sound would be with those top reference IIs.

This is an interesting topic. So if vertical centers are better, would the RB61II be much of an improvement over the RC62II?

I'm thinking in my case, an RB would sonically (and aesthetically) match my R3650WIIs, since I cross everything over at 80Hz. I would appreciate hearing any additional insight into any other added value (or if it would be worse) in having the horizontal RC62II versus the RB61II.

Interestingly, Klipsch did place another screw area for the tilt screw-in foot in my RC10 for vertical placement.

Well everyone, I got the ultimate confirmation of my recent purchase; my wife listened to a few scenes from The Dark Knight Rises last night and she was floored by the detail. She was commenting on sounds she had never heard before in the movie (we watch it a lot, it's my favorite demo material). She hasn't made another comment about the size; I think she is just ready to watch our first movie on them.

Can you mount another R-3650-W II? Personally, I would get the RC-62 II. The RC-10 can't be placed vertically. The tweeter horn wasn't designed for that.

Great setup! With the exception of the AVR and subs, we have the same setup. Looks great and I like the rug. Good taste.

Well everyone, I got the ultimate confirmation of my recent purchase; my wife listened to a few scenes from The Dark Knight Rises last night and she was floored by the detail. She was commenting on sounds she had never heard before in the movie (we watch it a lot, it's my favorite demo material). She hasn't made another comment about the size; I think she is just ready to watch our first movie on them.
Only tidbit about this, is that The Dark Knight, not the Dark Knight rises, should be your demo movie. Much better movie.

While The Dark Knight is a better movie, if only slightly, it is not when it comes to audio demo material. Now don't misconstrue what I'm saying, The Dark Knight has an amazing audio mix, but there aren't too many scenes that can surpass the sheer dynamics of the introduction to Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Something about the first time he utters, "Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man, before throwing him from a plane.". Compound that with the score that will wreak havoc on speakers if they aren't up for the challenge.

Even after selling the old system, It hurt $$ to buy these. But I found them as cheap as I could, did my week+ waiting for delivery, and months later, the $$ pain is over.
I mean, I suppose I could throw them on a credit card, but I'm about to have all of my credit cards paid off for the first time in 10+ years, so I don't really want to go down that road. I'm guessing the next time I end up buying speakers Reference Vs will be out

Turn it up!

Unfortunately, no; the TV is way too high (pic a few posts back), unless I go wall-mount with the curved TV (which may be better, I suppose; the entertainment center has served well for the previous 2 TVs).

Oh I've heard the plane scene is good demo material. But supposedly the bank robbery is pretty good demo mat in the Dark Knight. And I just love that movie so much more than TDKR. Heath Ledger just makes that movie so good.

you bought gigantic TV so center need to go under TV. I can't even think how big must be in livingroom. All TV's in huge stores looks much smaller then in real rooms at home. I just bought week ago and mount 65" TV and it is great size for my 14x14 room. I come from 60" so it is nice size update for me. I will really try RC-62II in those days you can buy it for very nice price and it is great speaker. Will you be able to fit in to your furniture for center channel?
