Not a Klipsch owner but am interested if anyone has compared the new RP to the old RP lines and whether the improvements can be heard.

This was the original press release:


"Featuring a new, vented proprietary Linear Travel Suspension titanium tweeter and our exclusive Tractrix® horn loaded technology, the new Reference Premiere series speakers deliver improved high-frequency response, better extension, enhanced imaging, and reduce unwanted harmonics for incredible detail and clarity."

I believe they are designed to go a little below 60 Hz, so they should be fine. Like I said, everyone who has commented on them in the past has liked them. The relatively large cabinet and the ports are presumably what makes it work so well.

Depending on your home's construction type and installation location, the most challenging part could be running and fishing the speaker wire. Beyond this, keep in mind that in wall speakers can result in sound transmission to other parts of the home (more so if mounted in interior walls vs exterior walls). As others have mentioned, a backer box is helpful for improving sound quality and limiting sound transmission. Also, it's a good ideal to surround the speaker with or without a backer box with perhaps blanket insulation to further dampen sound transmission. Lastly, these speakers are widely available through many authorized on line retailers at substantial discounts. Good luck with your project!
Thank you.

Are we able to disclose what dealer(s) have these at a substantial discount? All the ones I have been able to find so far that are less than MSRP are non-authorized dealers.

from everything I read and heard its not a big difference. tweaked the tweeter- but mostly cosmetic it seems, base style- different finishes.

Klipsch set up

Hey, guys. Building a new house with a dedicated media room and am narrowing down my choices. Haven't owned Klipsch before, but have heard some and loved the sound of them. Room is ~13x18 with 10' ceilings. One row of seats. Haven't picked screen yet. Room use will be 75% movies, 25% gaming (kids).

Here is the 7.1.4 in-wall (don't even get me started...) Klipsch set up I am considering based on performance and budget. Would love to know if I am missing something.

R-5800W-II as FL, FR, SL, SR, SBL, SBR.
R-5502W-II as center
R-115SW x1

For the heights, my understanding is that I don't really need to feel the need to match them with the other speakers or spend a bunch of money on them. I am considering something like the JBL SP8Cs that go on sale a few times a year or similar.


Looking for a Marantz SR7012 and an Emotiva A-500 to drive it all.

Wide open to feedback. Thanks.

So I actually found some CS-18C speakers for a good deal to use as the heights. I recognize that just matching the brand doesn't necessarily mean anything sound-wise, but I'm far from an audiophile and just want everything to be clear and loud.

Anybody have an issue with this grouping?

I decided to re-run the AccuEQ calibration on my Onkyo RZ-810 and I got some very strange suggested settings that I wanted to run by everyone here. My setup is as follows: (2) RP-280FA (for my L Front and R Front both with up firing Atmos Height Speaker), RP-450C (center), RP-250S (L Surround and R Surround placed in back), and finally the R-112SW. I have a Rotel 225 x 5CH AMP powering only the LCR and all through the Onkyo RZ-810. For the Sub I set crossover knob to it's highest setting and have the gain knob a little below mid. The suggested Crossover settings after calibration are as follows:

FRONTS = 200Hz
CENTER = 100Hz
SURROUND = 100Hz
HEIGHT (ATMOST) = 40Hz

I assume the LFE on the Onkyo is still set to 80Hz. This suggested setting is complete opposite of what I would have assumed and what I previously had. Mainly because of the size of the RP-280FA and RP-450C speakers I am using. What are everyone's thoughts about this? Does anyone have any suggestions for tweaks? The sound is very clear and punchy so I don't have many complaints but I do feel that some sounds are getting lost but not sure. Thank you in advance for anyone's knowledge or advice.

JW
I had this same issue when using accuEQ on my RP series with an rz-610. At first I would just lower the crossover to 80hz but lost a lot of LFE and things did not sound correct, then I disabled EQ and things seemed out of control. Without the knowledge or equipment to calibrate on my own I dedicated hours to messing with speaker and mic placement. I was able to get all speakers at 40hz (changing to 80hz afterword) with accuEQ by putting the mic well below the tweeter, this meant raising the speakers on platforms so I could place the mic at listening level when calibrating. I know you posted this a while ago, but I looked around so much for people having the same issue. Let me know if this helps or if you've found a solution since then.

Looking good! Great progress! As a suggestion, a link to your build thread in your signature would be helpful.

Surrounds speakers/book shelf speakers.

I'm currently building a HT in my basement and I am at a crossroad due to budget, the room is 13' by 21' and has 8' suspended ceiling. 90% of the listening in the room will be movies or sports. I'm running a Denon arv4400 with recently purchased RP280f mains and a RP440 centre a R112sw and a psb 12"
from my old system. eventually I intend to purchase a separate amp to run the front stage and add 4 ceiling atmos speakers but thats a year away. so long story short I can not use my old Bose surrounds for obvious reasons and I need to purchase surrounds so can I get away with book shelf speakers and be happy or do I need to spend the extra cash and buy surround speakers?

Go with what you have for now. Wait a few months, let your cash build up, and then buy the next piece. If you have a tight budget, and you try to do it all at once, you will never be happy with what you have. The future is bright and full of opportunities.

Klipsch In-Wall Comparison

Hello,

Apologies if I didn't post this correctly, but I didn't have the option to start a new thread once inside the Klipsch Owner Thread. Looking at two models for in-wall LCR's. I am having trouble finding if they are 2-way or 3-way. Anyone know?
  • PRO-250RPW LCR (2017)
  • R-5502-W II (2012)

If you have comments around these two models feel free to add those as well.

Thank you.

What would be a disadvantage of buying a more powerful speaker than what you have for front speakers?
In my example I was told by Klipsch to get the R-34C center for my R-26F speakers.
Since their used price is similar to a used RC-62, I was thinking why not go with the more powerful RC-62 for the same price?

What are the advantages of the new 2018 RC-34C center speaker when compared to the old RC-62, if being paired with regular R-26F speakers?
What would you do?

I thought there would be zero advantage in getting the RC-34C for my setup, but have not bought speakers in twenty years and didn't get a chance to look at the models.
I happened to score the R-26F fronts unrelated to any choice, so now I am looking to get a center for them but with Klipsch support telling me to get RC-34C because RC-62 would be overkill for them... I figure I would ask you guys....
Thank you for clarifying that I should get the RC-62s.

Thanks!

Hit my first stall today - the audio installer put in 16 awg wires instead of 12 awg. I didn't even catch it - asked the guy yesterday and he said 12 awg was going in. Luckily the company I hired caught the mistake and the owner called this morning to let me know - he is sending them back out tomorrow to fix it.

RP-450CA is real wood veneer. RP-450C is wood looking vinyl wrapped. All internal components are the same.

new 5.1 set up for music in my home office. Piano black RP-250F x 4 and RP-250C. Really like the look of the piano Black. So far played a lot of blu-ray audio and SACD's. they sound great, just enough for the room.
