I think it depends on the movie. But it seems many movies DO send a lot of the soundtrack to the LR. I just finished paying off my new TV with paypal 6 month credit. And this was my next purchase. I think this is going to be a HUGE upgrade. And I can't wait to watch a few of my favorite movies to test them out.
Awesome, congratulations! If you like them half as much as I do, I think you'll be quite pleased indeed.

It's a good price for "A" stock for the three pieces. However, if want an even better deal and don't mind "B" stock, ask Eric about its availability.

What is "B" stock? Is that speakers with minor cosmetic damage? The price I quoted was for open box. I expect them to be immaculate.

When I first became aware of the RF II line and trying to decide between the RF 62 II's and RF 82 II's, the overwhelming advice I received from forum members here was, budget permitting, just buy the 7's. I did not listen and went the longer route. And now I'm giving the same advice that I ignored!

"B" stock characteristics can vary but there is no physical damage. It can be a cosmetic blemish...i.e. imperfect grain pattern or color but absolutely 100% perfect in performance with full warranty . I believe there may be descriptive verbiage on the web site. If your expectation is cosmetically "immaculate," then it's probably best to avoid "B" stock. Good luck with your decision!

Absolutely agree with @mpirnat thoughts. To add to this, conventional wisdom has always been to invest first and most in speakers...with electronics following a distant second. The rationale is speakers have a greater influence in SQ and more importantly hold their value far longer whereas technological advances in electronics occur quickly resulting in a loss in value just as quickly.

I’m currently anticipating an AVR upgrade between now and spring. In the interim, I’m using my older 100 watt Onkyo 636 without issue as the entire RF II line, inclusive of the 7’s, are relatively efficient. So..enjoy!

Question:

My room is 14x18 and I’ve been in the middle of building my home theater from scratch in a new home I just bought about a month ago. Almost everything in my sig is brand new except the MFW15 and Polk speakers. I just got the Klipsch tower speakers on black Friday and Monday I got my new SVS PB16 to replace the MFW15, but now I’m considering swapping out my center channel that’s 6+ years old with a Klipsch. If I stay in the Klipsch family then the R25C looks to be it but my current Polk CS10 has very similar specs so I’m not sure it’s worth swapping....? Thoughts appreciated.

Also, considering the Klipsch 450C since it has more speakers and can expand sound across more of my 75” tv rather than the small R25C....

Thanks guys

TV: Sony XBR75X900E
Receiver: Denon AVR-X6400H
Protection: Panamax M5400-PM, Blu-ray UHD 4K Player:Xbox One X
Subwoofer: SVS PB16 Ultra, Front Speakers: Klipsch RP-450C and R-28F, Rear Speakers: Polk Audio T90e

I'm powering mine with a Yamaha RX-A3030. I was a little paranoid about whether I'd have enough power to drive everything, but the opening scene of Pacific Rim dispelled that quickly. I'm running everything as small except for the RF-7IIs, figuring that I'd flip them to smalls if I was running into any issues. My room isn't huge though, so I'm not listening at reference volume; -20 is about my comfortable maximum.

It's the same with cameras... Invest in good lenses because of their impact on image quality and the pace of change in camera bodies. Glass will hold value where bodies won't.

I just called SD and spoke to Erik just to ask him about that $2600 set of RF7 and RC64 and he said brand new. Even though it says open box return on the ebay listing I trust Erik as he has a great reputation around here. Pretty excited I can not wait to hear these things. Some one hold me, I'm shaking. lol j/k. (only partly).

Audyssey setup?

Can i ask a quick question?

Ran Audyssey after replacing my rf 42 iis with R26FAs and all the main difference is it changed crossover from 50hz to 40hz.
My subwoofer is an R12SW. R26FA frequency response is 38Hz - 24kHz +/- 3dB. Should I leave with Audyssey set or could I benefit from changing the R26FA to full band?

Keep in mind this setup is only for 2 weeks, running it on my Onkyo 706. I bought an Onkyo RZ1100 but it doesnt arrive until almost Xmas...so for now Im leaving the ATMOS height channels off.

Thanks for the help!

My Current setup (5.1.4):
Display - LG 65 inch OLED C7 // Receiver - Onkyo RZ1100
Fronts - Klispch RF-82IIs // Center - Klipsch RC-62II
Side Surrounds - Klispch RS-42IIs // Rear ATMOS (RH) - Klipsch RP-140SAs
Subwoofeer - Klipsch R-115SW // Front ATMOS (FH) - Klipsch RP-140SAs

I heard "B" stock has a diminished warranty, something like 3 or 6 months. You might as Klipsch directly, because there is some dealers claiming "B" stock has a full warranty.

Nice to know I got a full 5 years from the brand new A stock. I trust speakers much more than I do TVs and receivers though. I mean I've had a lot of warranty cash ins on TVs and I'm currently going through Sony for backlight clouding and motion blur. ::sigh::

I stand corrected from the manufacturer's perspective. From my experience, however, "authorized" Klipsch retailers I have purchased "B" stock from in the past have honored warranties well beyond 90 days. Whether this was with Klipsch in the loop or on the dealer's dime, I cannot comment. Although I've never had an issue, if one decides to purchase "B" stock from an "authorized" Klipsch retailer, it's best to request their warranty policy in writing for absolute clarity.

I bought a pair of RF42iis from Frys about 3 years ago and they were the floor model (I guess that's B stock?) and one of the tweeters went out. Klipsch replaced it no problem/no charge/ no questions asked. This occurred about 1 year + in

In the past it was much longer than 90 days. Now it is 90 days from an authorized dealer.

Most of the advice given in this forum say to set the mains to "small," thus letting the sub do its duty and do all the heavy lifting on the low end. The crossover then should be set to your liking...40 to 120 hz..most suggest settling in around 80hz. Then there's Room Correction...

Room Correction value is dependent on multiple factors...ie. speakers, room acoustics, etc and personal preference. And then there's proponents for Audyssey, MCACC, YPAO, Dirac, ARC, etc. Some like it...some don't...some turn it off completely. IMO, it's subjective, purely personal, and room dependent. And since your 706 has Audyssey, you should experiment with different set up parameters and tune to "your liking" (not ours). Then you will have established a baseline for comparison for AccuEQ with the 1100. As an added note, you may want to visit the Onkyo 1100/3100 thread and review @Molon_Labe comments (posts # 1955 and 2013) relative to Audyssey vs AccuEQ...so happens I tend to agree with him.

Hello everyone, I am new in this forum.

I am planning to reuse my Klipsch front center speaker (RC-3, 150w) and subwoofer (RW-12, 350w) for my next HT system. My plan is to get new AVR, surround speakers, ceiling speaker and front speaker. I still have the pair of RF-5ii series front speaker but it too big to place on top of the cabinet so I am looking to replace them with high power bookshelf. Please help me to choose the speaker set and please give me some recommend for the AVR. My plan is to have 5.1.4 audio system to support my family room, room size 20ft width but open area because the other side is Kitchen, 15ft from the back of the sofa to the back of the TV, 9ft high ceiling.

Here is my speaker selection at the moment.

Front speaker (2ea) is bookshelf type, model RB-81ii (150w), I dont have room for standing loud speaker.

Center speaker (1ea) is model RC3 (150W), reuse from old set.

Subwoofer (1ea) is model RW-12 (350w), reuse from old set.

Surround speaker (2ea) is bookshelf, model R-15M (85w).

Ceiling speaker for Atmos (4 ea), still not decide yet but may use Polk audio RC80i (50w).

Any inout and recommend are welcome. Thanks.

Fwiw, whoever said there wasn't much of a difference makes me wonder several things about setup--I am not one to usually claim "night and day" difference, but...Especially with a quality subwoofer and listening to multichannel music.

Ran Audyssey after replacing my rf 42 iis with R26FAs and all the main difference is it changed crossover from 50hz to 40hz.
My subwoofer is an R12SW.
Thanks for the help!
I definitely wouldn't keep it that low and raise it to 80 Hz.

You know what, they suck, I have no idea why you even ordered them 😂😂😂.

Ofcourse just a joke.
😀 agree waiting time is not easy at all. We are with you in those such a hard days 😉😀. I will start thinking what kind of music you will start playing with RF-7II’s the are very very nice with 2 channel music , playing large without subs 👍. Movies what ever you like there is some great scenes to watch. I remember my first movie I rewatch was Iron man. There is some great ones for sound like Mad Max: Fury Road , Pacific Rim, Wall E, there is a lot of to choice from as you already know.

Denon X6200W
Klipsch RF-7II's, RC-64II, RB-81II's, RS-62II's
SVS 2x PC12-Pluses, Emotiva XPA-200

Alright... Another question.
Been playing with receiver settings and I can't that chest thumping bass at low volumes, and when listening to music from YouTube I realized most sound gets routed to center speaker...so I am still figuring out if I should set my R26fa s to full band or not... So my question is:
1. Speakers impedance in onkyo settings is set to 6ohms, should I increase to 8?
2. Subwoofer has a bypass knob and gain knob and bypass knob is set to. 80 hz whereas onkyo lfe is set to 120hz..is this counter intuitive? Recommendations?
3. Any listening modes recommended to highlight the fronts sound?

Thank you

My Current setup (5.1.4):
Display - LG 65 inch OLED C7 // Receiver - Onkyo RZ1100
Fronts - Klispch RF-82IIs // Center - Klipsch RC-62II
Side Surrounds - Klispch RS-42IIs // Rear ATMOS (RH) - Klipsch RP-140SAs
Subwoofeer - Klipsch R-115SW // Front ATMOS (FH) - Klipsch RP-140SAs

1) Set it to 8 Ohms

2)Bypass the subwoofer's settings (or set to it's highest level), run your speakers as small and set the Onkyo Bass Mgmt to 80 Hz. I'm not sure how your AVR does it but set you LPF to 120. {Note this is different than the LFE).

3) I use the Dolby PLII (z) setting and like it for pretty much everything...I gather the newer Onkyos don't have Audyssey but if they have something called Dynamic Volume I would turn that off.

Cool! Thank you. What exactly does the impedance change do to the sound?
Dolby plii is usually my go to but some online content sends most sound to the center channel.and fromts barely get any sound, that's why I was hoping there was a mode for music listening that routed most sound to the fronts.
What about the gain knob on the subwoofer? What should that be set to?
And to clarify you are saying set filter knob to highest Hz setting?
When you say onkyo bass management to 80.you mean for the fronts?

And last, what do yall think is the best way to maximize the use of my rs42 ii and RF 42ii?
Option a : rs42 ii as side surrounds and rf42ii as back surrounds
Option b : rf42ii as side surrounds and rs42 ii as back surround.

Thank again
