Torn...between RP-160 or 150's.

In that feeling of 160 is to big, but if you buy the 150, you will always wonder if you should have gone for the larger size.

Wish I could see both of them sitting next to each other to really see size difference.

Will these work if there is no wall behind them? as in open room?

Thx

Looking at purchasing 2 RP-260F's and 1 RP-440C for my new front left and rights and my center. Thoughts? Oh, and getting these for around $1,000 total.

Wondering how far from your ears they are. They look big, and mine would be about 2-3 feet from seats and don't want them to be to overbearing over the rest of the system.

Can go with the RP-150M instead, but like to go big and never look back?

Also, what stands (24") would fit the base of these speakers?

Thx

Also, I have my 160s on these now https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I may remove the angled base but for now they work fine.

Wish Klipsch had stands with exact same size top plate as the actual speaker.

Should the speaker be right at ear height , below or above it?
My seat height is right at 39"

THX
I don't have 7.1 but I do use the rp160s as my side surrounds in 5.2 setup. And they are on the exact same stands Theriddler07sms posted which is 26 inches and brings the tweeter about 2 inches higher than my ears. While the top plate is smaller than the speaker they have rubber which is on top of stand that holds the stand very well and doesn't slide.....its also a heavy stand and pretty stable. I have one of my speakers out in the hallway and I always make sure I don't walk into it or bump into it. But you can use blutack to hold it more securely if needed, I'm not using anything since I don't have kids or pets. I have my rp160s 6 feet away per side at 110 degrees from my MLP and have it firing in front of the room toward the coffee table. Here is pic showing them as my side surrounds. I measured from floor to tweeter with that sanus stand and its 38 inches. Also its worth mentioning that the speaker has small back tilt (Whole RP line has this except the center channel) so it slightly goes to your head or above it depending on how far away you sit.

I have tried various ear height locations for side surrounds. What works for me is to push the speakers slightly ahead of the listening post (lp) as in the attached pictures. I built the speaker stands with wheels, so I can experiment and/or move the speakers if I move the couch.

Do those stands hide the wire, or is it visible on the outside?

Picked up some 160's yesterday for a small music only system. For gits and shiggles I hooked them up to my main system. Wasn't expecting them to sound as good as they do. Highly impressed.

Go big and don't look back.

To me, volume is what becomes overwhelming. I have an RS-62II a couple feet from my side of the couch and it's not overwhelming at all. For my space, I run most movies between -30 dB and -20 at the extreme loudest and am quite content. What you'll get with the larger woofer and (I think) larger horn on the 160 is more fullness, depth, and detail. I went from RS-42II to RS-62II and they could both play at the same level, but the RS-62II was just better.

As long as you get all your levels balanced (either automatically with help from your AVR or manually with an SPL meter or approximated with a phone app) it will be no more overwhelming than any other speaker.

Yes the wire is visible from the outside. Its not hidden wire management system. I used black loom (speaker wire is white) for the run from the speaker to the floor so you don't see it. They come with small hole holding system at the top and bottom base to keep wire from moving, but its not hidden. I will take a pic of it later to show how I made mine look less noticeable, but its behind the column so can't really see it unless looking for it.

Quick question on my rears. Looking at the pic I have them set in dipole mode with the back wall behind them.
If I drop them down about 18" just below the wall so they hang freely, would this be better for the sound or make it worse since they no longer have a back wall to bounce off?

I would leave them where they are if I were you. It would look very odd with them hanging, for a minimal gain

Question is....do they sound good to you currently? Is this 5.1 or 7.1 setup you have? Are you planning on going to atmos?

Currently only 5.1, and I hear them when watching movies, but wasn't sure if they would perform better at a lower height to the sitting area (currently at 8').

Can't do Atmos, have large vaulted ceiling.

So speaker on the right in the picture would just be dangling in the air, the one on the left would be dropped down the support beam? Ideally you would want them lower, but I think the minimal gain of 18" closer is not worth the eye sore imo

Ok, just pulled the trigger on my first Klipsch speakers. Going with a 5.2.2 setup for HT use primarily. Went with Pro-6504-l-thx for LCR, 6502 for rear surrounds and CDT-5650-c-II for in-ceiling ATMOS. Compared them to MartonLogan Edge in-walls. Edge's were warmer sounding for music, but for HT use, the Klipsch won! Can't wait to install these in my new home theater.

If those are your rear surrounds, drop them down as close to ear level as possible. Few of us have the perfect environment, so do the best you can.

At some point you may want ceiling speakers, and then your rear surrounds where they are will be a problem. Better to start solving that problem now.

Here is a pic as promised. Noticed I have white speaker wire that is ran along the baseboard? So I used black wire loom at speaker stand side so it looks flush.

The only difference depending if you have room for the 2 rear speakers behind you. Keep in mind the 5.1 and 7.1 layout is the exact same but with 2 extra speakers behind you. You need few feet at least which should be the same as side surrounds. I have 5.2 setup cause my mlp is up against the wall. I don't have enough room behind me to do 7.2. Also pics showing the layout will help as well.

Never owned Klipsch but I'm interested in the fr & center Premiere Series. Is it best to stick w/ their subwoofers or I can get something else I like and still blends well. Mainly it would be for watching movies 3/4 of the time.

My room is so dark its almost impossible to take good pictures. The room is 15x10ft and the couch sits probably 2' from rear wall and ears are about 3' from rear wall (my sub and electronics are behind the couch).

Subs do not need to match. I matched mine as I liked the copper cones matching with my regular speakers. Although I recently saw a deal for $399 for the r-115sw at fry's electronics, which I would find price for pop almost unbeatable. There are better subs out there than Klipsch at their regular retail price point imo.

Marantz SR6010 -- Marantz MM7025 -- Marantz UD5007
Klipsch RF-7ii's - RC-64ii - RB-51ii's - RS-42ii's - R-112sw(x2)

HK990 -- HD990 -- Klipsch RF-7ii's

Stick with 5.1 layout. You need more room behind you for 7.1. Remember the speaker is 12 inches so if you have it behind you it will be 2 feet to your ears. LOL I'd just do 5.1.4 or 5.1.2. If you really want 7.1 and can move your couch 3 more feet out then go for it.
