Klipsch's distribution works as someone places an order and the order is dropped into the pool and a dealer picks up the order and fulfills it. If the website is showing certain discounts the dealer might still be able to beat it. It might frustrate you to realize how much markup there is on this stuff.😜

Hello all

Figured I'd sign up to AVS juuuust in case I have some issues with my new setup...

I have been a huge car audio fan most of my life, running RE subs, Focal and Hertz speakers, a few other top brands. Lost a lot of my hearing (my own stupid fault), so got out of the car audio game awhile ago (sold my RE XXX 18") and now am getting more and more into home theater.

I grabbed an LG 55" OLED awhile back, wanted to do a basic 5.1 system (really basic) so I grabbed a Denon S510BT with Energy Take Classic 5.1.

Let me say - I am disappointed in both Denon and Energy. Denon's digital board failed within 9 months (warranty company fixed this), and the Energy center channel is essentially trashed (muffled, even at 75% volume can barely hear dialogue) - the sub also essentially stopped producing bass. Luckily I also have a warranty on these, so these are going to get sent back for repair and/or refund - which will end up in my bedroom.

That being said, I finally spent hours upon hours looking at good floor-standing speakers to invest in with a decent warranty so I can have crisp, clear sound reproduction so I can once again enjoy movies, TV and music.

Went with the RP-280F (2), RP-450C and the R-115SW

Coming from TV sound/Energy system (which, when it worked sounded great) I am sure this system will blow me away given the right setup.

Should I run the Denon calibration with the mic? This is recommended by Denon, but I have read that this calibration can actually hurt sound reproduction by enabling certain options which effectively mute or lower the output of the speakers. Going to also invest in a power conditioner/surge protector, but for now a surge protector is all I have.

Run it, you should be able to turn it off if you don't like the way it sounds, and at least it will set up your distances and trims properly.

Run Audyssey, it's one of the main reasons to get a Denon. Just disable DynamicEQ and Dynamic Volume and you'll be good.

I always keep DEQ enabled and DV disabled. Should I also disable DEQ? You can see my entire setup in my signature. Like the previous poster, I also feel that my Klipsch speakers aren't as loud as I thought they would be.

The speaker setup sets all speakers to the same point. The difference is you'll be able to play them louder, just keep turning the volume up.

Thanks to jconjason for the advice about not using DynamicEQ and Dynamic Volume. I used DEQ for years because the rep from Audyssey said one should keep DEQ on. I was fighting tubby male voices before I wised up, and smoothed out by turning DEQ off.

Some people like DEQ, some don't. I think at lower volumes, it can help, but at my normal listening levels, I prefer it off. It's definitely YMMV thing.

Interesting, thanks. I just experienced Kong: Skull Island last evening with my new setup. I have DEQ on / DV off. I am lacking the punch I should be feeling, BIG TIME.

If DEQ is not limiting it, where should I look? I have Subwoofer Level Adjust +4.0dB, sub volume control knob at 50% volume, Bass set to LFE / 80Hz. I was thinking maybe LFE+Mains? .. since I want the 10" punch from 7's?

Edit: The low end bass is perfect.

Definitely no expert here, but I would try setting LFE to 100 or 120. I've got mine set to 100 based on someone else who knows a lot more than I do about this, don't remember the reason. I see you have the x4300, I would get the Audyssey app for $20, and use it to punch up the mid bass. My Denon is too old for that, but I plan on getting your model soon.

Treating your room will be far more effective than any EQ. Do some room measurements, that will tell you where you should concentrate your efforts.

Another option is to track down an Icon SB-1 soundbar. It's basically the same thing as the R-20B minus Bluetooth.
Woot! has the R-20B again today for $279. That's a hell of a deal for those looking for a very decent soundbar.

Forte III

I have a pair of Forte III. Great sounding speakers. I've had many different Klipsch speakers, including RP-280 and Heresy. These sound awesome.

The issue I have is I bought the Cherry. My Heresy were also Cherry. I had heard the new finish was a couple shade lighter. I looked on the website, and they looked cherry, a few shades lighter then the Heresy. No, these look like a pine finish. Light as pine. The front of edge of one of them looked like it had a dent in it. Ran my finger on it, and I guess my fingernail hit the varnish and scratched it. These are so light, it looks like the wood was burnt somewhat when it was planed. This has left dark swirls under the clear varnish. The swirls are not the wood grain. Very disappointed in high priced speakers.

I saw two sets at my dealer. Both were the special editions. The woodwork was fantastic on those. I've been communicating with Klipsch, but they seem to not care. Sent a picture of the "dent" on the front. They say wood has various qualities. I realize that. However, this is made from "B stock" wood and it is unacceptable to pay this much for something that does not look like quality.

Closing, totally awesome sounding speakers, very impressed by the sound. Best sounding I have ever heard. The cabinetry is not up to Klipsch standards for the Heritage series.

Disappointed.

I am glad they brought the Forte back. Used to use Forte II as a center with my Chorus II's before going with 3 La Scala's up front. Congrats on the new speakers.

try disabling DEQ, adding 1-2Db to surrounds and 4-5db to subs and you will not go back.

It takes dynamics out of sound but you probably like it because it gives you a bass and surround boost. You add that in manually and disable it you will be very pleased.

Unhook your coax cable from your box/TV whatever service you have, see if it goes away.

I use a expensive power strip for my TV, AVR etc. So I unplugged each device that had a 3 prong A/C plug and installed a 2 prong adaptor.YMMV on this but it cured my fan noise from my Hafler amps for my TT and R2R. Dimmer switches, fluorescent lights, ceiling fans etc will also cause issues when on the same circuit breaker with a amp and receiver.

I have my Ham Radio in the same room as my HT system.....big mistake at first RF(Radio Frequency) when transmitting on 80 meter band, as voice was coming back into my HT speakers.(HT system was OFF) I had to add ferrite chokes to my speaker wires at the back of the AVR to cure that.
