Yes, mostly TV and movies. A little music now and then but as you say should probably stick with what I have, which sound good to me.

I asked because I am always looking to squeeze a bit more out of my system and found a good deal for a set of open box 7's. Never hurts to ask.

Thank you for your input.

I feel like we have a set of mangled 280's in existence now.

I'm sort of blown away that the plate wasn't already attached to the speaker. I've bought the 250, 260 and 280 and every single time the speakers had the base plate attached.

I can't help but ask if you bought this from an authorized dealer...

I've bought 260 and 280. The 260 had the bases installed, and the 280 had the bases in small boxes uninstalled. Unopened Klipsch boxes from authorized dealers.

Question for those who have the experience with the setup: I have the RP-280 System and my AVR allows me for me to add Atmos height channels. However, in order to do so, I would need to sacrifice the bi-amp of the fronts. Does anyone have any experience in the affect on power/sound quality by sacrificing bi-amp fronts to incorporate height?

Displays: Samsung UN78KS9800 [new], Samsung UN78HU9000
Sources: Samsung UBD‑K8500 4K Blu Ray Player, Playstation 4, Xbox One S, Dune HD Max Media Player
AVR: Onkyo TX-RZ900 AVR

IMHO no need to bi amp those speakers, use those amps for ATMOS height. I have owned several newer Klipsch that had the bi amp feature and I could not tell much if any difference.

I agree. I don't think you are going to lose much up front, but will gain a lot more by having at least 2 speakers in Dolby Atmos.

Totally agree. Two more Atmos speakers.

Thank for input.
I upgraded from RF-82IIs to RF-7IIs and noticed a difference in dynamics and tweeter compression at higher volumes. In other words, the RF-82II's tended to get a little harsh/strident when really pushed and the RF-7IIs (which have significantly larger tweeters) don't do this at all.

If anything, I think you'd notice this effect more with movies then music. That said, I loved my RF-82IIs, but the RF-7IIs just bring a little more capability to the table.

Thank you for your thoughts. Do you feel if/if I got the RF-7IIs that I would also need to change my center RP-450C? I could swing the 7s financially, but not the center as well.

Thank you.

You wouldn't *need* to get the RC-64II, but it has the same tweeter as the RF-7II, so I think you'd eventually want to get it.

since the RRF-7 preferred RMS is 250 watts.

And what differences would I notice if I upgrade overall?
I'd like to your experience verses what sales at Klipsch or venders say.


thanks
You have a great setup congrats! Is there something you don't like about your system currently that you are hoping to gain by upgrading? Also, how loud do you usually have your system?

This isn't directed at anyone specific so if you feel like it is, please know it's not.

It amazes me how deep the hooks must be with the electronics firms regarding biamping...

There is thread after thread after thread with people (innocently) asking about the merits of using their AVR for biamping...

I realize that it says it "right there on page 16 in the manual... If I just use (lose) my side or rear channels....I can biamp the fronts....."

Even when I knew jack squat about (active) biamping, I still "knew" about it and what it entailed.

It sometimes feel like a whole body of general knowledge has evaporated.

(says the dumazz...(that's me))

Hey guys, just unpacked my towers and one of them I noticed that the rubber horn was bent open and it is so simple to come off, is that the way it is or is it defected?

Mine are not like that, I would be worried if they already came popped open and slide off so easy.

I think for the peace of mind you should just exchange them for another pair. Depending on where you bought it from, you may even get some discount/partial refund if you kick up a fuss.

Also, since you don't even have the 450c or 160m's yet, I'm sure you can wait

Thanks, I'm going to speak to the dealer tomorrow. As for the other one, it looks like if you were to stick your nail in it you would be able to pop it off but it is tight..are they supposed to be completely sealed or is it supposed to be like that.

Thanks

I think the other one is alright, I don't think they're supposed to be totally sealed shut,

Either way, get them exchanged, and take pictures of the box wherever there may be any sort of damage

Interesting. I never checked my mine. One of mine is loosish like your first one, and the other is tighter like your other one. I have no idea if this is a problem or not. Hope not, but mine are under warranty if it is. I've never noticed a problem sound wise, but I'm very far from being any kind of Golden Ear.

Just checked my other 160m, and my center 250c,

Just for what it's worth, all of mine are tight, I can get a finger nail in and bend the lip/edge up, but nothing that would reveal or pop-outward the rubber like the picture. Also I wasn't trying hard at all, lest I do make it loose, so maybe I should have tried harder.

Whether it's a problem or not, I don't know.. it's probably nothing, but if I remember correctly this may be the result of the (RP) Premiere lines move to rubber on the horns; could just be a design flaw of a relatively new product line.

Do you guys think the RP 250 would be enough for a 13' x 15' theatre room. Would like the 260 but a bit tight on space. Would be adding 2x svs pb1000 to handle bass, or is the difference between 250 and 260 night and day. Will also be adding a RP440C centre

It's more than enough, but with those excellent subwoofers why not just get a bookshelf pair of RP-160m's? That would be even cheaper than the RP-250F, and IMO would sound even better than the RP-250F since the subs will take care of anything under 100hz.

I'll let you guys know when I get the replacement and see if it is tight or not, BTW forgot to mention that while waiting for the others and testing it with just the RP-260 F...the sound is awesome and loud, love it really happy with my purchase

Glad you're happy with the 260's since they seem to be more than enough for most applications, hopefully the next ones don't have the same problem.

Hey guys, I have the option to create a home theatre with a triple LaScala LCR, Chorus II rears, and heresies for surround. How big should my room be at least to justify this kind of setup? I have everything except the LaScala fronts, but I can buy them for 1700. My tv wall is 4,2 meters wide, big enough to put 3 LaScalas next to each other? The room itself is 5 meter x 6 meter and the couch will be sitting around 1,5-2 meters from the tv.

The room itself is 5 meter x 6 meter and the couch will be sitting around 1,5-2 meters from the tv.
Wow, that will be nice setup. How big is the TV? That will tell you how far back to be from it. Here a calculator I found online that may help.

I think the room should be big enough and it looks like you could go to Dolby Atmos since you have the 7011 as well. At some point you could probably add four RP-140SA's or RP-14SA's.

Thanks!

Well I am quite happy with the 82's, however a few things changed. I upgraded to a 4K 150" and also going ATMOS and added a Klipsch 115sw Sub. So with all that said, I want the sound to match stage to match the visual size. Also (finally) the RF-7 are going for a great price since the ver III is coming out soon. The main thing I am concerned with is, will my Emotiva 200watt sufficiently run the RF-7? since the RF-7 required RMS is 250 watts

Emotiva has a 3 channel XPA at 275 watts (which I would connect to LCR), but it's pushing my budget and also potentially getting to close to my 15amp circuit breaker, as my whole system is running in the same room off the same breaker, everything in my signature is off the same breaker.

Any advice/opinion would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that's max RMS, not required. 200 watts should be enough to cremate your ears with those speakers. I wouldn't worry about the 15 amp circuit breaker unless you are planning on going deaf.
