+1 I was thinking the same thing...that space could easily accommodate and benefit from RF-7II or III’s.

The difference is the depth which is minimal

Nice. We also have a bar counter and stools behind sectional and a regular bar counter further back too. Great for watching sports etc when your buddies don't want to snuggle on the couch.

Yeah I plan on lowering the surrounds so the bottom of the speaker is at the top of the back of the chair. So about 6-12 inches above ear level.

It's understandable that each of us must prioritize aesthetics with our hobby/interest...sometimes influenced by WAF. However, in speaking only for myself as an HT enthusiast, I would always prioritize audio/video quality first whenever possible with aesthetics being a close second. Of course as always...YMMV.

I didn’t realize how minimal it was so looks like I’m sticking with the 280’s. Thx

Hello everyone,

Need some quick advice.

I am shifting to a new house and builder is offering a 7.1 HT system (as an upgrade). It will consist of all in-ceiling speakers and he is using Klipsch Pro 18RC for all 7 speakers (I am trying to get model details for sub-woofer). I mainly watch movies (music is not important) and I like to have clear dialogues as my number 1 concern. My wife likes the idea of hidden in-ceiling speakers but I am really concerned about the loss of sound quality.

My current 5.1 setup (that I would transfer to the new house as an alternative option - and, I am really happy with this setup, so would only go for equivalent or better sound) consists of:

Center: Klipsch RC 62 II
Fronts: Klipsch RB 61 II
Rears: Klipsch RP - 240S
Sub: Polk Audio PSW505
Receiver: Denon AVRX3400

Will I be downgrading by going with the above setup?

Thanks
Dibs

That will be horrible. The soundstage will be totally out of wack, those particular ones can't handle as much power as the ones you already have, thus can't play as loudly. In ceilings would only be useful for Atmos speakers, or background music.

The "in ceilings" would be a downgrade...drh3b is correct, in ceilings will be a compromise...particularly your front soundstage. In ceiling speakers are fine for the casual consumer and those with no alternatives. Your current speakers are far more accurate in terms of soundstage, performance, and capability. Furthermore, in ceilings at this time would likely play havoc with future Atmos plans/configurations. Generally speaking, most builders have limited knowledge of current surround and 3D sound requirements...unless they have retained an SME on staff. Just as a suggestion, you may want to think about what your end game would be...i.e. 7.1.2, 7.2.4, 9.2.4, etc. as this would be a good time to have your builder pre-wire for the future speaker locations...side and rear surrounds, wides, and heights for Atmos.

My suggestion would be to have them wire it and install your own later without having to open up all the walls.

My builder only does 7.1 and all ceilings. So, I am going to have him put them close to the walls so that i can pull the wires to the wall in the future. I will have two in-ceiling speakers installed a little in front of seating position for Atmos heights. My current AVR only supports 5.1.2 max - so this should complete my setup.

Thanks, this is exactly what i wanted to know. I will go ahead with your suggestion and NOT have him install speakers but will go with pre-wire option as some others suggested.

I'm running the rp160m for my rear speakers, the rp250c for my center, and the khc-6 as my ceiling speakers. Saving up for the rp280f to replace my onkyo 4800 towers. Hope to have them by Christmas as Uncle Sam just depleted my funds 😧.

Setting up a 5.1.4 setup. New receiver shows up tomorrow(pioneer elite sclx801) and the second set of ceiling speakers by Monday. Going from a 5.2.2 Onkyo 7800 system with an extra matching sub. To what I listed above with a Hsu vtf2 mk5 sub. It's been a 6 month project. It's coming along!!!

The klipsch speakers just sound amazing. So much better and cleaner than the onkyo speakers I had/have. Cant wait to replace my onkyo tower.

Wow I can't believe that a builder won't work with you on getting you the setup you want. I am the senior electrician for an electrical and technology company and its always about giving the customer what they want. Just surprises me that contractors aren't willing to work or listen to their customers.

I can't believe this either. When we built our house almost 11 years ago my build sub for AV had no problem pulling wire where ever I wanted it run. I have towers and ceiling speakers for surrounds and center wired in my living room that run to my basement where I have equipment. I also had him run speaker wire in the walls where the TV is in case I ever went with in-wall speakers. I agree, you are the customer and should get what you want. You are paying the bill.

I'm in agreement and commend you and your company for going above and beyond...the Nordstrom of your industry! However, its been my experience that most industries don't venture much beyond what they normally do...it incurs additional costs and disrupts time lines. In this case, ceiling background speakers for music...yes...accurate surround and 3D speaker placement for home theaters...no. This level of understanding of audio, acoustics, and codecs requires far more expertise and planning...beyond a builder's ROI. Lastly, unlike the members and visitors of these forums, most builder's customers have no knowledge or desire to incorporate much beyond a "big screen" TV and maybe a soundbar. It's unfortunate but it's the reality.

The builder might regret that when it's time to get a good reference from the homeowner. Word of mouth is a pretty powerful type of advertising.

Like I said above, our builder had an A/V guy that new about home theater and other A/V things to put in the home they were building. Our A/V guy also wired and set up our alarm system and ran speaker wires to our outside wall to our patio for speakers a future time. When I tried to talk to our Builders representative about type of coax a d Cat wife, he had now clue and to talk to their A/V guy. He also ran coax for future subs for my living room. I haven't used them yet. I guess builders care about LV and A/V and others don't.

And that's the key...a resource on staff. This is normally the exception rather than the rule. It's likely that high end homebuilders would retain specialized resources first and hopefully in time with greater demand, all builders will have such resources. This is no different than automotive options that are first seen/included in high end cars and then eventually seen in mid range cars as these options become more commonplace. The demand for immersive surround sound systems from the general public just isn't commonplace...yet.

What size wire is the builder running thru the walls? We used #12 for speaker wire and RG6U coax with RCA ends for the sub.

DIY 3/4" MDF board or plywood and build a shelf paint semi gloss black and LAG bolt to wall studs. This how I mounted a large Klipsch C7 even with the top of my 55" TV
and used the all thread to raise up the rear so I pointed down at us. Or there are several metal shelves that bolt to the wall that support the weight of the RC-64, it will be many years before you upgrade that center speaker. Check out this link and look at the different designs https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&ke...l_7elm8wbyu7_b

My wall studs did NOT line up where I wanted them mounted and not having a flat surface would NOT allow me to raise the rear of the speaker up.
I could have cut a 3/4" plywood and made a shelf to lay on the "L" brackets you are looking at. I did not want to wait on shipping so I spent less ten 10 bucks to DIY one. I had the 3/4" MDF so I needed rattle can paint and 4 lag bolts and large body washers and some sand paper and a hour of my time.

But if you are mounting under the TV go for it and don't worry if the two "L" braces are not evenly spaced under the RC-64.Most people won't notice they are watching the movie. :-)

I added a extra 3/4"X 6" wide back board to my shelf and drilled 3/4" holes every few inches so I could find two studs to mount in the center with after I measured with stud finder where the studs are in the wall. I can't see the shelf or the board against the wall.
