They will both be excellent. Whatever fits your space better.

Which one sounds better though ?



I actually owned a 600C, but returned it and bought a 504C.


I couldn't explain it, but I heard sounds on the 600C that I don't on the 504C. Example, in Bumblebee chapter 2, when the robot dropped Bee on the mountain and he rolled, I heard sounds on the 600C but I don't on the 504C... I wish I kept the 600C longer and compared them ...


I think I need a 604C (if that even exists)

Klipsch owner thread

Hello,

I need a center channel recommendation for my bookshelf speakers, RB-5 ii. I did not realize how many options of center channels Klipsch has, but looking for something that will pair with the RB-5's.
I've done a bit a research and seen that people recommend:



r-25c
rp-250c
rc-62ii
Rc-35 (used $100)



I was going to get a used B&W CM Centre but I read about "timbre match" so what do you guys recommend or think.

Thanks!


Receiver is a Marantz NR1506.

Don't know for sure, but I would guess the RC-62 II would be the closest match. It's a newer speaker in the same line as yours. With the RP series, the Klipsch sound became a bit mellower, and probably doesn't match particularly well with your speakers.

I’m also in agreement with the RC-62. You may want to check out the current sale at Frys for $169.

Hey guys, I am looking for a little bit of advice. I have decided to purchase either:

Klipsch The Sixes

or

Klipsch R-51PM

I was wondering if anyone could give some pros and cons to each. I plan to use them in an office setting and also plan on adding a sub down the line (undecided on 10 inch Klipsch or SVS sub).

Please feel free to ask me any more questions if it would help in your recommendation.

Thanks.

Can't help you with the speaker choice but I would get the svs sub over the klipsch !

This is just a guess, but it looks like the Sixes are based on the RP line, and the other is the R line. Without buying both, and sending back the loser, I would get the Sixes. I would also take SVS over Klipsch for the sub, and throw in the RSL Speedwoofer for consideration. It trades in a smaller size over less extension over the SVS which may or may not be important to you in an office situation.

Got the speaker cable ran to my new rear surrounds. Was able to fire up Netflix and watch a little Avengers in DD 5.1, gives a more surrounded feeling, like you are in the middle. Can't wait to try it out on some Ultra HD Blu-rays.

Hello all,

I am currently using a Yamaha RX-A780 receiver and switched center channels and am having issues hearing dialogue as loudly as I'd like.

My old center channel was a Polk Audio CS20 and I didn't have to turn it up quite as loud to hear dialogue clearly. I switched to a Klipsch RP-504C center and love everything about it except the soft dialogue during 4k blu ray movies.

My question is, someone told me to use Adaptive DRC and it might help so I don't have to crank the volume just to hear the dialogue more clearly? Currently it is set at MAX but someone said to try Minimum/Auto?

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Assuming you have recalibrated everything after the switch?

Hi all!

I’m looking at the 402s for side surrounds. Does anyone else use these? Should I use them for back surrounds as well?

I use the previous bigger model the RP-250S on the side walls. (Earlier used them on the back wall.) On the sides, you can feel much more immersive side moves/sounds, while slightly less back sounds (not so concrete/accurate). When they were on the back wall, the side moves - L/R - wasn't so powerful, while the back sound was good (but not much better than the side wall use). So I prefer the side walls, but it depends your room. I recommend to try both, if you can, but maybe the back wall is not possible for you. (Put them on - the front speakers - boxes, calibrate with the avr, try and then put them to the other position and re-calibrate...)

Thanks! It’ll be a 7.1 setup. Right now my rear surrounds are the bookshelf Klipsch. But I’m wondering if it would be better to get 4 of the 502s, two for side and two for back. If I read your post correctly, you suggest sticking with monopoles for rear?

gadgtfreek I bought 4 stands for my Klipsch RB-75's and did not use the pointed carpet spikes on our hard floors. They are heavy for a speaker stand and not easy to tip over. Here is a link to them. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I used only Klipsch WDST speakers - R-14S and now RP-250S - so I don't have monopoles. Most people (and Dolby) recommend monopoles for Atmos systems, while others use bipoles, like the Klipsch WDST speakers. Just to inform You, if you want to upgrade later. These are sealed (402S/502S), so can be wall mounted, like mines (the top is 5 feet high from floor). The monopoles has a reflex port on the back, so you can not wall mounted them, need space between the wall and the speaker. Other thing if a monopole is not enough far from the listener, you will get a direct sound exactly from the speaker, even the sound should come from the side or back... The WDST is dispersed, so this can't be a problem.
You can get 4 of the same (4x 502s/402s or 4x Booshelf), but if you would like to use the 2 bookshelf, I think put them on the rear surrounds, and the new 502/402 on the sides. If the room is not big the 402 should be enough. If the money is not the consern go with the big.

Do You have big space behind the listening position?! Just wondering why you go to 7.1 and not 5.1.2. I never wanted 7.1, so I went to 5.1.2 from 5.1 and then 5.1.4... and I did not regret it.

It will eventually be 7.1.4

Now I’m worried I should have gotten the 402s instead of the bookshelves for the rear surrounds, I have the 600m

Ohh, I see! I think that's not problem. You can get 4 monopoles or 4 bipoles or 2-2 of them. The more speakers you have the more accurate sound you will get. I don't have space for bookshelfs - 1 feet the speaker and 1 feet away the wall and need a shelf. Wall mounting a speaker is the easiest for me and I don't care/mind if I lose (but maybe not) some accuracy with it. The Atmos/DTS:X is truly amazing.

To be clear, I have two 8000 as fronts, 504c as center and two 600 as rears (for now). Was thinking about 402s as sides.

But if it would be better to return the 600 and get the four 402s, I will, I just don’t know. Once I have the 7.1, the rears will only be about 2-3 ft behind me

I would go with the 402s to the sides and keep the 600 for rears (and later you can change the places, if you want to try). But if you feel you can get better with 4 same 402s - and have doubts with the 2-2 -, then go for them, can't go wrong. Both will be great, the difference not much and maybe not noticeable.

Perfect. That’s what I’ll do, ordering it all very shortly. Last question - what size speaker stands would you recommend for sides and rears? Thanks so much!

Sorry, but I can't help, because I don't use stands. I hope someone else can help You. The speakers must between 5-7 feet from floor. Mine is a bit under - the bottom is at 4 feet & the top is at 5 feet - but still good.

For Atmos (and in general), center of tweeter should be ~ ear height while seated. You want separation from the base and height speakers. Do the math and get stands that would get you close to that. I would do monopoles for sides and rears. In your case, 600 for sides and get another set for the backs. Maybe smaller models since they are so close.

Look at my post 57979 for a suggestion for stands. I bought these and are made very good and heavy so not easy to tip over.

Thanks! Even though I’ll be sitting super close to sides, you’d say monopole still?

Speakers at ear height or above?

Here is the name to search if you wish
Pangea Audio LS300 Speaker Stand - Pair (36 Inch)


These look great. They seem a bit high though for ear level, no?
