In-lieu of an adapter , I've always used a bolt with a trio of nuts to secure keyholes to stands when necessary.
Those stands a possibility, but, removing the keyhole mount on those particular speakers is not gonna happen here. To be fair, that might not be necessary anyway.

Newbie question here.
I don't have to many options, to install a center speaker. Garage setup, with motorized screen in front of the garage door, very close to the ceiling(low ceiling), Benq pj, half into the ceiling(motorized lift).
I'm thinking to go with 450c or 440c, motorized opening from the ceiling.
The speaker's back port, will be venting into the attic. Would be installed in an angle (piano hinged shelf), and just the "face" would be poking out.
Good idea, or bad idea?

Does anyone have their TV on top of a RP-450c? I have a Sony 65" A8f OLED that I was going to wall mount but I now realize it would fit on top of the center channel. The TV weighs 60 pounds. Would there be concerns of the panel vibrating at high volumes? Surely it wont tip over at a high volume.

Yes, mine has a TV on it, all 82 lbs of it. As I understand it, the RP-450C was designed to support up to ~100lbs.

Not long..only 4 months or so. It’s a Panasonic gt55 and the base JUST fits front-to-back which is a good thing as this means a good portion of the weight is directly on the outside walls.

Bipoles are an acquired taste. Some people hate them. I fell in love with a set of Fluance bipoles and I bought them. Then when testing different speakers for my new HT I heard the 250s and I felt the same first-love I felt with the first time I heard the Fluances but the 250s are far better.

You need to find them installed somewhere and listen to them. If you are one of those that likes their unique sound then you will love them.

I am going to be running exposed speaker wire to one of the new side surrounds in our living room. This isn't a matter of choice, it's either exposed or not at all. So, I'm going to run the lion's share of .it in the corner where the side wall meets the ceiling. What I want to know is there a staple gun that works for this task and that won't destroy the wire in the process? That approach seems ever so much better than using a hammer to install the tacks/staples/wire holders. But, folks here might have better suggestions, so let'er rip!

..if the other solutions proposed dont work for you there is this sort of staple gun:

I've used this for speaker wire and xmas lights.

You state it's exposed or not at all....this infers to me you either can't dig into the wall or, don't want to. (ripping into the drywall would be my choice so you could bury the wire.... but, my wife is pretty adept at fixing those type things and you can't tell it was ever opened...)


I'd go the raceway ...way. Basically get some conduit on the wall so you can run whatever you need. I like the purported benefits of the ghost wire but personally, I think I can see some shortcomings with it when it comes time to turn corners and go around objects. Something that is wide and flat, doesn't like to make a sudden 90 degree turn without bunching up or some other issues. (I would personally want as few splices as possible)


So my vote, since you don't clarify why you can't do it


1. Rip into wall & bury the wire
2. Raceway

Nobody can help?
It is a good, or bad idea, to place the center speaker, with the vent port, into the attic?
I have another question about two speakers, that I'm considering.
One is an old one, RB-35(8" speaker) and the other, is a RP-160M(6.5" speaker)
The BR-35, I can have it for $75/pair, with one bad tweeter(replacement would be $39), and I could replace that myself.
The RP-160M, is around $300 as an open box.
I'm considering the RP-450C, as the center channel.

Hey guys, long time lurker with a few questions.

I have the following Klipsch speakers:

2 - RF-82
4 - RS-42
1 - RC-42
(These are not the II)

I will be moving soon and selling my Denon X2000 to get something with HDCP 2.2. I also need to buy a new subwoofer. I plan to go with the Denon X3400 and likely a PB-1000.

The room I will be using is mostly a box, about 14 x 12 x 10. My main question is should I or can I use two of the RS-42s for height speakers to make a 5.1.2 system? Or should I stick with 7.1 with the speakers I have? I also have a pair of R-15Ms if anyone has a creative idea for those.

Okay, this is not as easy as I had imagined it to be. First, let me say that _jim_ was right, removing the keyhole mount was necessary in using the Sanus EFSATB stands that I bought because I thought that they had the right hardware for keyhole mount speakers. However, they do NOT, and I had to scrounge around for parts (of course scrounging around included the obligatory trip to the BORG) that I could force into service for mounting the R-14S's on these stands. I did make it all work, ugly as it is, but it is not the best situation, and I will be looking for a better solution as far as stands go.

By the time I got the wiring done and the Frankenstein mounts fabricated it was too late to go hunting for content to show off my new surrounds, and rejoice in my return from a 3.1 setup after our move, back to a 5.1 setup such as we had before the move. I streamed episode 1 of Marvel's Daredevil thinking a Marvel choice would be a good demo, but that choice was mild to say the least. While trying to recall the not too distant content that made me want to go back to 5.1, I drew a blank, but at least that matched my brain at that point, so I went to bed.

Trying to patiently wait for a sale on the Reference Premiere line. I am expecting there will be a sale in the not too distance future on the current line, since the RP refresh should be released in the fall.

I am want to replace my LCR with RP-160Ms & RP-450C. I am currently using a pair of KG4s with a B&W LCR6s2.

You could try the RS-42 as front height/Atmos speakers but they are not really designed for that. They're designed to be side surround speakers. The R-14SA or the RP equivalent would be what you should use.

I'd take 5.1.2 over 7.1 any day, especially in your small room.

You missed a good sale about two weeks ago. I picked up a RP-450c, 2x RP-280F, and 4x RP-250S, and also 2x R-115SW (good price but not on sale).

Where was the sale? Was it a online retailer? I've been watching klipsch.com, Amazon, Fry's Electronics. I want to go through a authorized retailer.

Amazon. I think it was a one day sale. I was hoping that they would lower the price on the subs but nope. Speaking of Fry's... they sometimes have a sale of the lower end towers and speakers but include the R-115SW at a lower price point than the sub alone on Amazon.

Are these preferred to something that mounts in the ceiling?

In ceiling is the best option, but is not always available depending on the situation.

I'm currently using some NHT SuperZeros angled at 20 degrees on the top of my front towers, 9 ft drywall ceiling and I can hardly tell they're on, even boosted by 8-9db. Watched the first 10 minutes of BR2049 and got about zero overhead effects.

I don't want to go in ceiling so my next step is the SVS Prime elevation speakers mounted as front height or to the sides of the listing position but at ceiling height.

No need to wait for sales. Give Sound Distributors or Acoustic Sound Design (both authorized online retail dealers) a call for competitive pricing...you must call for best price quotes.

I wouldn't worry too much. Just stay vigilant, easiest way is to check Amazon, as several authorized dealers sell through them. Crutchfield will also put them on clearance as soon as Klipsch authorizes it, I'm sure. The previous generation was mostly widely available for a year or so.
You will enjoy them, they are great speakers, as long as you aren't a crazy loud listener like I am, then you need to accept no less than the RP280f.
I've owned the RP-150m, the RP250c, and currently the 450c, 280f and the 260f. I won't say they are the best speakers for the price in the world, as there are thousands to listen to, but they are damn good.

I'm thinking the same thing. I just purchased a set of Atmos enabled speakers from Klipsch at a great discount and that sent me down the rabbit hole. Now I'm looking to get a pair of RP-160M front speakers and a center RP-250C. But right now prices aren't really budging.

I imagine that as August approaches when the new line may become available, we're going to see a fair amount of clearance opportunities. I wonder if the deals will start before right before the new line comes out or after it is released.

I also prefer the look of the current RP line over the new look with the anodized ring. Although the new bases with the feet look good.

I have ended up getting the RP-450C Walnut, that has just arrived today.
I was listening to it, and to me, it sounds like the left inner speaker, sounds more muffled, then the right inner speaker. The right one has highs, but the left one not at all.
Almost like, each speaker has different frequency ranges. It could be, that all five speakers reproduce different frequency ranges?
The outer ones, barely make any sound, but I'm guessing those will make sound, only when the frequencies get low enough.
I would like to find out this info, as soon as possible, to be able to contact the seller, in case that it is not normal.
Any input would be appreciated.

P.S. Found this image on Youtube (Techno Dad). It could be possible, that the two inner speakers cover the 500-1500Hz range, but not as both reproduce the same frequencies, rather one reproduces, let's say 500-750Hz and the other, from 750-1500Hz range(split the range)? Maybe the same goes, for the two outer ones as well?
