I was looking at their specs and it looks like the RP-250F can handle continuous power of 100W, 440c will handle 125W and the 240S will handle 75W

The room where i have put these are 18X12X11 open on one side. So its fairly big.
I usually lhisten to moves at reference level.
About 2 or 3 times a month we party and listen to music and it get get very loud... so loud that the onkyo is at its max (well over reference) (95-99 on the absolute scale)

Here are the specs of the amp
All Channels 125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven)
Front L/R 110 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
125 W + 125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
Center 110 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
Surround L/R 110 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
125 W + 125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
Surround Back L/R 110 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
125 W + 125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)


Do i risk damaging the speaker by craking it up so such loud level?

yes , you might need to get a power amp ..you will be more than happy to take advantage of the preouts that you have
and it will provide tons of headroom if your maxing out the onkyo

Plus buying from Cory ensures that they are covered by the Klipsch warranty, not so sure about some of the others

Yesterday was the first chance I had to crank up the RF-7 III after adding the Parasound Halo A52+ amp. Holy cow! They sound absolutely amazing! I had a friend over to demo with me and he was sitting in the middle front seat in my theater room and he leaned over and asked, "Is the center channel on?" Nope.... He was amazed. LOL. Super wide sound stage. Just phenomenal speakers for sure. Paired with the Dual SVS SB-16 sounded incredible.

So with a lack of In Ceiling 5.25 speakers, and wanting less depth required, what do you guys suggest for ceiling Atmos speakers?

My speakers will be.
RP-250c Center
2x RP-150M L/R
2x RP-250S SSs
2x RP-150M BL/BR
2x PB2000 S

4x Atmos???

So I cannot mount in the ceiling, I have to mount it. So I want shallow depth, I already have low ceilings (7'5").

I was looking at the RP-140D, however they say specifically "DO NOT CEILING MOUNT" idk why or if I should care lol.

I would likely have to angle those, somehow.

Then I saw the other shallow depth in ceilings. SLM-5400-C, I could build a box for these and they are very low depth. I would have to angle them too though? (I read conflicting stuff about angling)

And lastly, the RP-140SAs, while not exactly short depth, they are angled and would likely be okay? However can they be mounted to the ceiling?

Before anyone asks, I dont want Upfiring, and even if I did, there is no where to put them, the front surrounds are in bookshelves, the rears attached to ceiling. And the ceiling is covered in Velvet under where the fold up screen goes, when the screen is down it helps stop light reflection. It's thick, it stops some sound reflection as well.

I'm at a loss, don't know which to do. What do you guys think?

Hey everyone,

I wanted to finally break out my 4 RS-62ii’s and incorporate them into into my setup since they’ve collected dust in the box for more than 5 years since buying the RF-7ii set. I didn’t want to wall mount them since it wouldn’t be ideal the way my living room is designed. So I looked at Sanus 24” stands from my local dealer, but the platform the speaker would sit on is too small. Has anyone found stands that work perfectly with their RS-62’s? Please share if you have. ALSO, anyone use a stand for their 64 center?

Thanks,
Judd

I've noted that these "warnings" are arbitrarily issued by exuberant mods. I've actually received an infraction some time ago without any "warning" for similar postings. It seems threads are not consistently and evenly monitored as I see some repeated postings of (ie."price talk") in some threads while warnings and infractions are doled out in others. Just my observations.

I can’t agree more , some threads are more easy going then others about rules.

Good looking out man. I appreciate it.

Yeah, the mods are a bit fascist when it comes to the classifieds section. One of the many reasons I haven't frequented AVS as much over the past year or so....

RC-52II as LCR?

Hi all,

I am thinking about using a set of RC 52II as an L/C/R set up? ( space limited and these fit) comparing against the BIC Formula FH6-LCR...

thoughts?

Paying the price of waiting on proper speakers when you don’t measure.. waiting on my 260FA to replace the 280FA , 440Cc to replace the 450CC. The 240 surrounds are staying and still waiting on SUBS to arrive .
New setup installed and wanting to know if I should add another set of Atmos in ceiling or a set of uprights to balance the 19x21 room size??

With their 60x90 horn do you think that will work?

I am contemplating doing that with 250cs, but they have a 90x90.

If your idea is to turn the L/R vertical I'm not sure you would get good dispersion.

I been doing alot of reading about similar ideas, and something I seen pointed out is that sometimes to pull that off you need to "Flip the Tweeter" in cases of speakers like the RC52 II. However in the RC 52s case you cannot.

Well, it *should* work. My MLP is far enough back the that the 60 spread should be fine. and since the L/R will be wall mounted. the 90 will work that way as well. I was thinking about flipping the tweeter. there are 4 screws on the baffle and they seem square How do you know it is not flippable? I was thinking about calling Klipsch tech support to ask them.

Its not the Actual tweeter thats the issue its the horn.

The horn on the RC52IIs is a solid piece with the front panel, there isnt 4 screws there is 8. That entire front panel is 1 piece, you cannot flip that.

That said after further inspection it seems the Tweeter is flipped the other way than I thought, Its reducing Horizontal Dispersion when used properly as a Center (most Likely to help with MTM issues) so it would actually most likely work very well for LCR.

Stands are really easy to make and will be very solid. Take a piece of 2x6, 2x8, 2x10, or 2x12 whatever fits best and cut in pieces to size. Use a piece for bottom (cut larger), then a top piece cut to size. Use 2, or 3 pieces of 2" or larger PVC cut to length in between. Take 1/2 inch threaded rod cut to length up through the PVC. drill 1/2" holes in the top and bottom wood pieces then with a 1/2 inch wood bit drill 1/2 inch or so for the washer and nuts to recess just below the wood. Spray paint whatever color and your done. All this can be had cheap at Home Depot. See picture of side stands.

I was looking at the RP-140D, however they say specifically "DO NOT CEILING MOUNT" idk why or if I should care lol.

I would likely have to angle those, somehow.

Then I saw the other shallow depth in ceilings. SLM-5400-C, I could build a box for these and they are very low depth. I would have to angle them too though? (I read conflicting stuff about angling)

And lastly, the RP-140SAs, while not exactly short depth, they are angled and would likely be okay? However can they be mounted to the ceiling?

Before anyone asks, I dont want Upfiring, and even if I did, there is no where to put them, the front surrounds are in bookshelves, the rears attached to ceiling. And the ceiling is covered in Velvet under where the fold up screen goes, when the screen is down it helps stop light reflection. It's thick, it stops some sound reflection as well.

I'm at a loss, don't know which to do. What do you guys think?
Would the Aw-525 work? they would be about 3" shallower ( just under 9" after aimed) than the RP-140SA's and be more amiable and cross over much lower like 80hz. They can be had for about $200 a pair. http://www.klipsch.com/products/aw-525-outdoor-speaker

Congrats...and welcome to the Klipsch family...very nicely done! Just a minor suggestion...to possibly lower your side surrounds a bit. With the introduction of Atmos, the recommendation for the location of surrounds (sides in particular) have been modified to at or just above ear level...particularly for lower ceilings...8' and under. This is to allow for adequate separation of sound between the overhead and bed layer speakers. Your ears will likely tell you if this is necessary in your environment.

Yeah I definitely plan to lower the surrounds.

Very nice system and an awesome room. I'll bet you'll spend a lot of time in there.

New setup installed and wanting to know if I should add another set of Atmos in ceiling or a set of uprights to balance the 19x21 room size??

Klipsch doesn't make an RP-260FA; they make the R-26FA. So, if the R-26FA is what you're waiting on, then be advised it's a Reference speaker as opposed to aReference Premiere speaker (RP-280FA). So, your replacement speaker will be from a lower product tier compared to the one it's replacing.

Just curious, what are your size constraints of the 280 vs the 260? The difference in size isn't very much between the two speakers. That larger room is begging for the larger woofers
