Probably the best quality/$ brands are Rythmik(RythmikAudio), HSU (HSUresearch), PSA(Power Sound Audio) and Monoprice Monolith. The first 3 have better customer service than the last one.
The Klipsch R-115SW is solid if you can get a discount on it.

Some ID options:
Rhythmik Audio
HSU Research
SVSound
Power Sound Audio

If you want to stick with Klipsch, go with their 15in sub.

Good luck!

My Room 7.3:
LG OLED65B7A; Sony UBP-X700; Sony Playstation 4 Pro; Apple TV 4K; SONOS Connect
Denon AVR-X3400H; Klipsch RP-280F (L/R), RP-450C (C), RP-250S (SL/SR), RP-240D (RL/RR); PSA V1510 (x3 SW)

Slightly off topic, but still Klipsch-related...my wife recently got a Glowforge (laser engraver/cutter) so I threw together this clock. It's two layers of three oak boards each and a cheapo quartz movement from Amazon.

Whaddaya think?

Could you use these the RP-600M or the RP-502s in the rear instead of in-walls. I have heard its best to use front directional in the rear instead of dipole speakers is that true. An what's you opinion?

I have purchased three Klipsch KSW 15's used on Ebay. They are older models (not the latest and greatest), but they work well for me. Whatever model or brand is preferred, it might be a good idea to monitor Ebay or other sites that offer used equipment. It does take time and patience to get what one wants.

7.4.6 system with Denon 8500, Additional Amps: Emotiva (front and center) and NAD (wide), classic Klipsch speakers.

Hey guys,

I'm totally new to this forum, but have been reading a lot recently about home theater.

Store here has a package deal for +/- $2300:

2x RP-260F
1x RP-440C
2x RP-240S
2x RP-150M
1x R-112SW
1x WA-2 WIRELESS SUBWOOFER KIT

I've been reading about Klipsch for several months now for my upcoming home theater in our new house. Would you guys say this is a good deal ? It seems like a very nice set for this price, if I look around online for these individual speakers.

Hello Folks. Are the R-51m ($199) worth the $50 dollar difference over the R-41m($149)? Or any other speaker suggestions? just using for rear satellites for my 5.1 system. I have RF-35 fronts and Rc-35 center.

Thanks

I have installed all of my in walls and in ceiling speakers except for the centre speaker, I am building a recessed wall for the tv and the centre speaker which is a klipsch PRO-6504-L-THX centre, it is very well made and I was wondering why mm MDF should I use to house this. I have decided on 12mm or 9mm. I am leaning towards the 9mm as I think the speaker is so solid that the 9mm MDF will be sufficient. Any thoughts on this, attached are pics of my area and the centre speaker.

Centre speaker will be placed just under the TV in wall.

New RP-6000F vs RP8000F

Hi everyone,
I'm debating between the new rp6000f vs the rp8000 with a 12" sub (R-120SW) for a dedicated HT that measures 15D x 13W x 9H. I think the rp-8000f would be too much Thought? Also, would a 10" be better than a 12" sub for this room as well? Thanks.

Would like to hear the feedback to this one as well, as I have a similar room (16,5x10) and the guy from a well known shop advised me to go with the rp-5000f instead of the rp-6000f because the room is quite small. So I'm trying to decide now between below 2 sets. The rp-6000f is only slightly more expensive (200 euros) but packs a lot more power I think. Question is if I need that power in that room...

A. 2x rp-6000f, 2x rp-600m, 1x rp-504c, 1x spl-120
B. 2x rp-5000f, 2x rp-500m, 1x rp 404c, 1x spl-100

My room is nearly identical in size and I have the RF62IIs, about the same size as the RP6000. The RP8000 is not much bigger so if you can afford them go bigger. Unless going bigger on the towers means having smaller sub(s).

At least a pair of 12" subs is recommended and not from Klipsch unless you can get them for half or less of MSRP. A pair of HSU VTF2.5s, SVS PC/PB2000s, Monoprice Monolith 12, Rythmik LV12R, LVX12 are about the top choices for 12" subs.

Agree totally with Kini62 comments. Budget allowing, the rule of thumb is always go bigger. Typically one seeks pieces based on adequate performance for a particular room size and you may be perfectly happy. However, stepping up in capability will allow you more "head room"....that is to play louder and lower more cleanly when desired or necessary. Further, the "what if's" won't be an issue for a longer period of time. Also, these speakers may eventually be moved or relocated to a future larger living space. Lastly, IMO a 12" sub is easily the choice over a 10" unit...a 12" sub is a minimal requirement to to enjoy and experience action blockbuster movies. Many agree that the sub is more important that the L/R mains....don't skimp on the subs. Currently, the subs mentioned by Kini62 are favored by members of this forum. Klipsch subs (except the 15") are not as highly regarded as Klipsch speakers. Good luck with your decision!

I really appreciate your replies! @jorisdriesen , @Kini62 , @Gene 4th and @retro124 . My debate comes from several sources that suggest for my room size under 2000 cubic feet, shouldn't have anything too big because it will sound bad in the room. Also, thanks for the sub recommendation! I can afford the rp-8000f so if you guys think the room can take it, all I can do is try and I'm sure I wont be disappointed. Thanks so much again.

There's really not much difference in output between the 6000 and 8000 until you reach high volumes where the 8000 will have more bass and mid-bass output. A lower volumes there won't be much difference. Low end extension is virtually the same. If you shove either up against the wall they'll sound equally bad.

My room is 13x14x9. I have my speakers on a 14' wall. The back of the speakers are around 12" from the wall. I sit about 9.5' away. I do have a pair of subs and I rarely listen any louder than -15 so I likely wouldn't notice any difference if I had RF82s instead.

It's your call, you'll be happy with either setup.

Anyone know much about this speaker? I brought it for my inwall set up as a centre speaker. It is very solid with large magnets, I imagine it will sound better than my old rp450c centre speaker. Thoughts?

I doubt it will sound any better. Also, the RP450c probably matches better with your RP inwalls you have listed in your tag, at least it should. I would expect the one that you have in the picture is brighter, so maybe better for voices. I would think another PRO-180RPW would be a perfect match for a center, although it would be less capable than an RP450c.

I agree I think your RP450c will sound better. Are you going with an AT screen and will it go behind the screen? If so I wouldn't mount the RP450c in the wall since it has a port at the back. I thought I remember Klipsch making an in wall like the RP450c for in wall installation, but I can't remember the model number.

It appears to be a THX-504-L. There is also KL-6504-THX that is quite similar. These are from the Klipsch "THX Select2" series. I really don't know much about this series, but I did recognize them. There is also a line called "Ultra2". Both of these Select2's seem to have very close specs, but the photo that you have shown appears to be the THX-504-L because of the emblems that are shown. This could have something to do with Klipsch changing there numbering system for what appears to be "Virtually Identical Speakers". Both are also 2-1/2 way units (Tapered Array in Klipsch speak) with XO Freq. at 250Hz and 2100Hz so they should be suitable for horizontal mounting as a center channel.

Thoughts on the Klipsch RP 504 center channel? I currently have the Klipsch Reference Dual 5 1/4 center R-25C in my 5.1.2 setup. Will this center channel speaker give me a noticeable upgrade.
https://www.crutchfield.com/p_714RP5...04C-Ebony.html

I also have a 10" Klipsch sub and while I'm generally happy with it, but at low deep bass, I get a vibrating sound sometimes and it's not as clean or sharp as I'd like. I'm not an audiophile like most of you, but that's the best way I can describe it. The best example is on Aquaman when they dive into the ocean while fighting the Trench.

I don't need something too powerful that will rattle my room and not let my toddler get sleep at night, but I'm also tempted to pick up the SVS PB 2000 some of you are recommending.

I currently only have the funds to upgrade one first. Which would you all recommend?

I had the R-25C at one point and switched it out for the matching center for my mains, the RC-62II and it was day and night difference. The 504C being from the newer RP line should be a big improvement over the R-25C IMO.

I also have a PB-2000 and it will definitely be a huge improvement over your current 10" Klipsch.

If you're not having issues with your center, the sub would provide the biggest improvement.

I think they are both worthy upgrades, but I also would get the subwoofer first.

As previously mentioned, if there are no specific issues with the performance of your current center channel...there is no doubt a PB2000 will yield the greater benefit. You’ll immediately notice improvements in performance relative to extension as well as smooth and articulate bass and wonder why you didn’t upgrade sooner. For HT, the sub is the most important component for reproducing the LFE present in today’s blockbuster action movies. IMO, this requires a 12” sub minimally and the PB2000 is highly regarded and recommended.

It is the 6504 - L THX, I am in NZ so not sure of the other 504 you talk about. It weighs a healthy 8.3kgs and is built like a truck so I imagine it sounds pretty good, I had the RP 450c so once I have installed this I will do a comparison and give feedback on the results. I’m betting it will sound similar or even better!
