i have a sub. but according to that review, for music imagic had to tone the bass down.
https://www.avsforum.com/klipsch-rp-2...-forum-review/

"Conclusion

Klipsch’s RP-280F is an excellent tower speaker that’s a great choice for 2-channel audiophile-style listening, as well as for pumping up the volume at a house party. It is a refined-sounding speaker system that can also rock like a PA.

The RP-280Fs are a viable choice for a standalone 2-channel system. The primary caveat is that such large speakers might produce too much bass if used full-range in a small room and without EQ. Unless you have a near-perfect listening room, I recommend using a bit of EQ to get the most out of any speaker system."


im looking at approx 75% movies and cable tv, the rest music

since my room is on the small side and theres a $125 difference between both towers, maybe it makes sense to go with the 260s.
ive been trying to decide for days ever since i got the 160s.
if i drink tonight im sure ill buy the 280s, but still ive been leaning towards the 260s the whole time

maybe ill let the buzz decide

The 6010 from what I have read will only do 5.x.2.

@jdsmoothie is a Marantz rep on here and you may want to reach out to him to be sure or if you have any questions. Have you been on the Marantz 6010 thread to ask this question?

The SR6010 will do 5.x.4 with an external amp...I'm using one in just such a configuration right now.

You can't do 7.x.4 with an SR6010. It has 7 internal amps and will process at most 9 channels with an external amp. The SR6011 has 9 internal amps and can process 11 channels.

If you can swing the budget, get the 280s so you don't have to wonder "what if" and you keep the upgrade itch at bay for longer.

Get the 280s....the too much bass imagic is talking about is from the subs, not the 8 inch midbass. Also the bigger woofer will give you more midbass and dynamic impact for movies and do better for music in 2.0 application.

I have in 16x16 room RF-7II's with dual PC-12 Pluses to just give you idea and it is really not too much bass. 2 channel listening pure just towers with RF-7II is excellent and I really didn't ever feel like it is too much bass.

Get best speakers you can now. $125 more is not a lot and better to do it now when later try to sell 260's and get 280's and lose a lot more a specially when you really planning to keep speakers for a long time like I do.

Loving them everyday! I can't imagine a better speaker for the price I paid for these. These truly have a great cinema sound I enjoy. I use RP160s as my surrounds. Running 5.2 setup.

Best purchase I've ever made. Man, the sound is mind blowing even at low volumes the sound is dynamic and detailed. I also was deciding between the 260's, but I wanted to go big. No regrets whatsoever. They use a lot of space though, keep that in mind.

The center channel is amazing!!

Get the 280s, you won't regret it, especially for only $125 more

Was going thru my late fathers audio box and found 4 boxes of X2 audioquest speaker wire. I use 12g nimbus monoprice with plastic jacket removed. I will say the audioquest looks a lot more insulated and actually just as thick (copper strand) as the 12g monoprice and its 14g. What I like about it is the design to go under base boards. The copper is thicker stand vs the fine strand of the monoprice.

Anyone here ever use this? I am not into buying "snake oil" but this is free lol

Never used it. As long as it looks well built, I'm sure it works just as well as the monoprice.
I would never buy Audioquest, but if some fell into my hands, I would use it.

RP series is a much better system. And you already said you love the 160s tweeter....the rest of the rp lineup has same sound.

I've been hoarding credit card rewards for a while now and I'm pretty close to the point where I can pull off something major...

Should I:

A. Replace my RF-82IIs with RF-7IIs? (Before they disappear...)

B. Replace my SW-112 (from before the copper cone refresh) with an SVS PC-12 Plus or PC-13 Ultra? (Allows moving the 112 to my current sub-less secondary system.)

C. Hold tight and wait for the RF-7III? (Which would have to integrate with a bunch of Ref II stuff, since there's no way I have enough accumulated WAF to change it all.)

I'm pretty heavy into Ref II though... RC-64II, RB-62II, RS-62II, RB-41II. Will the RF-7iii integrate all right with the earlier line? I definitely cannot swing updates on the rest of the room.

I vote A.

I like systems that match (aesthetically as well as aurally) all the way around. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the new matte black front baffle, but if I were trying to integrate RF-7s with an existing RP system, I'm probably go with the IIIs. In your case, since you have existing Ref II equipment, I'd go with the IIs. Plus, you can get them now and likely save a heap of dough!

@mpirnat I agree with @Schwa I will go with A option and if you can then do B option after that. RF-7II's are excellent speakers and you can really look in those days for good deal but I since I bought my LCR trip I didn't see deal like that very often.

RF-7II's will help tou save some $$$ and you can start looking for great sub much sooner then if you get RF-7III's

A Go with the RF-7II and save the $$, maybe look at used one's too.

B Yes replace the small Klipsch sub. I am in LOVE with my SVS PB-13 Ultra (small 10X14 room) and their Customer Service is almost second to none. My friend next door has the PC 13 Ultra tube and it is AWESOME for Bluray movies and great for music.... But for music ONLY I liked the way I can plug one or more of the three ports and re tune for music when spinning vinyl. If movies was all I wanted a sub for the PC-13 Ultra is hard to beat. And smaller footprint if space is a issue like it is for me.

As you can see from my signature I have several different series of Klipsch I have collected over the years in my 7.2 system and they all blend in great for movies. YMMV some rooms are hard to balance all the speakers correctly.

I posted a thread to get some general ideas, but I want some Klipsch expert advice as well!

I'm in the process of a buying a house (a new build), and I'm itching for an audio upgrade, since each residence change has been coerced kind of home theater upgrade from me; first apartment was 5.1 audio, and my second (current) apartment was a projector setup. Now, I'm due for another, and I owe my audio setup some love. I mainly use my home theater for movies/TV and video games; also music, but very rarely.

First off, some information about the room. My home theater setup is in my living room. The house is a three story townhome style build, with the 2nd floor having the living room and kitchen, so the living room does open up into the kitchen. The living room size is 25'9" x 19', not including the kitchen. The flooring will be hardwood.

Now for my existing setup and what I want to upgrade. For my first apartment, I bought a Denon AVR-X3000 receiver and Klipsch HD 500 speaker set. I still have all of that set in great condition. The sub is the one that came with the HD Theater 500. According to the spec sheet, it's a 8" fiber-composite cone with a 100W amp.

With the house, the living room is going to be pre-wired for 7.1, but the surrounds have to be in-ceiling. I know that in-ceiling isn't the most ideal, but with the room layout, speaker stands aren't an option. The builder had a pretty good deal on speaker installation, and they are a dealer for Klipsch, so I went with that option for the surrounds. I don't really want to do the ceiling installation myself and this was cheaper than hiring someone to do it after the fact. They're putting in two pairs of Klipsch R-2650-C speakers for the side and rear surrounds.

Now the front is where I need some advice on what to upgrade to. I don't want to upgrade everything at once, but I will eventually, so I want recommendations for the end system. For the front sides, I want floorstanding speakers, since they fit well with the massiveness of my 120" projector screen. I'm leaning towards sticking with Klipsch, since everything I have and will have from the builders is already Klipsch.

Also, if I go with floorstanding, I would think I can delay the subwoofer upgrade since the floorstanders will already give me a bass boost, especially if I keep my current sub. In this case, my upgrade priority would be floorstanding towers first, then center, then subwoofer. I would like recommendations on what speakers to look for, so I can start scouring for deals on them. I've seen a lot of love for the Klipsch RF-82 II towers, and have gotten suggestions to look at the RP-260F speakers as well.

I would also STRONGLY consider looking at Power Sound Audio subs in addition to SVS. Not that there's anything wrong at all with SVS, but the value proposition for PSA subs is out of this world. FWIW Tom Vodhanel, one of PSA's co-founders, was also a co-founder of SVS until he resigned in 2007.
