It's normal on music. You have to sit in the middle for stereo. If toed in - total - for main listening position you lose (or almost) this. But it's not the best for movies, i think. (with less toed-in you can make bigger stage, you should try yourself) I set up mines - for two persons - a bit toed in, point behind the main listening position. So if I go behind (1-2 feet) the main listening position they are looking at me. It's great for movies! And for music too (but If I sit out of the MLP I can hear only one side of the music....)

Yeah.. had the RP-280FAs and Marantz SR7012.. along with the center channel and rears. SVS sub to fill the low end. That was mind blowing in terms of theater realism. Playing music was excellent for overall sound. Although I believe that the sonic signature of the RP's was a bit on the high side, and didn't have as much of a soundstage - but that may be the SR7012.. it's made for home theater, not true audiophile perfection.

Now that Seaton SubMersive should fetch a pretty penny! If I hadn’t just spent an arm and a leg on my HT, I would take that off your hands in a heartbeat.
Thanks.

Problem is that I don't live in the US and the market for used home theater stuff is very small to non-existent here. I doubt anyone here knows what a SubMersive is. Also, if someone from the US or any other country purchases from me, the shipping costs are very likely to make the overall cost uneconomical.

Even in the states Audio gear can be a tough sell. Its a niche thing in the day of bluetooth speakers. Shipping basically makes any decent size speaker a local sale only, good luck. Guess you just gotta be patient.

Yeah, that’s tough. I would suggest listing it for what you believe it is worth and accepting the best offer.

Any reason you are selling? You have a good setup. Again, that SubMersive is one of the best subs out there!

Considering RP280FA with a 5.1.2 setup.

Is it more ideal to pair a "warmer" Marantz SR6012 receiver with Klipsch, or a higher power Denon X4400H for the same cost with Klipsch?

I can score a set of RP280FA and 450c for about $1150. I'm nervous to select a speaker set in general, so many options out there, but even if there are better speakers I am skeptical I could do better for the $$ for the front 3? Any alternatives you'd recommend?

(I've had some reluctance due to people calling the Klipsch a little too harsh or not as good for music. I like music, maybe 20% of the time. I am appreciate quality, but I'm not an audiophile who can discern the fine nuanced specifics.)

Oh, and CHERRY Finish. The $1150 deal is for Cherry finish which I am not as excited about. My BDI set is cherry, but I think it's unlikely they'll be a perfect match. Then it might even look worse with two unmatched cherry pieces. And that's a LOT of cherry, when my room is otherwise more black/white/modern (not over the top or anything). But it seems like such a great deal, and maybe it would look harmonious... thoughts? How is the Cherry?

Previously I had Marantz SR6011 and before an Denon AVR-X2200W. They sounds well and I loved both. For electronic music I think the Denon has more punch. But now in EU the SR6013 is around €800 while the X4500 is €1100, so with this, I would go with the Marantz....

The Klipsch RP series are more neutral than previous Klipsch. Brightness is not a problem, and they are awesome for music. I'd probably get the Denon, but the Marantz will be fine as well. Both the version of RP you are looking at, and the newer ones have reviewed well, and most people that have listened to them seem to like them.
For the price you are quoting, it will be pretty much impossible to get something better. I'd go for it.

Im buying the Rp6000F and it will be placed on a hard wood floor in my condo living room on the second floor. Should I place a small rug under each speaker to prevent sound from going down to condo below or do the newly designed metal feet take care of that. I do like the look of the speakers on the bare hard wood floor. thanks

I’m not sure where you are getting your deal through, but AcousticSoundDesign.com always has great pricing and is an authorized dealer.

As for whether to go with the Denon or the Marantz, it really depends on how loud you listen. If you are in the -18 or above category, either unit would work. Want to go below -18, then go with the higher powered Denon.

I don’t believe Klipsch to be too bright or harsh, especially not the Reference series. Klipsch put a lot of effort into taming the new reference line further than those before, and from what I’ve read, they succeeded. They are great for music and when it comes to movies, I dare you to find a better speaker for the price.

Hi All

Really need the help of audio enthusiasts, klipsch owners or experts. I would like to hear your views on the Klipsch reference premier 6000 f (planning to get two front standers) and centre speaker 600 C. Hoping to pair this with my jamo S416  floor standers as surround (old and cheap but decent) and the Jamo bookshelves  as my front height speakers. This would be paired with onkyo RZ 830 with some adequate power. Thought it may be good if I am intending to get klipsch- more power the better the drive since klipsch speakers I am told can be driven easily. . Heard the ref premier series is pretty good and has toned some of the overwhelming brightness in previous models. Just hope it has good bass as I am used to the  deep bass in Jamo which i intend to replace the front two speakers with the klipsch. I gather jamo and klipsch have different sound textures,  the former being  much warmer but with recent reviews of the klipsch rp series, I feel.the klipsch  may be more dynamic and clear compared to what I am used to with the Jamos. Hoping to get advice from enthusiasts. Appreciate it.

You will definitely get good bass, but I’m assuming you are pairing with a subwoofer? I’m sure you would be very happy with them.

As for pairing them with the Jamo’s - since they would work as monopole or direct drive surrounds, I’m not sure how the sound would integrate with the Klipsch speakers. Might be noticeable and it might not. No way to know until you get them into your room. If you had dipole or bipole surrounds, it really wouldn’t matter if the speakers all matched.

Thank you for your inputs. Very helpful. I have an old JBL sub. More for movies. For music I usually do stereo without any subs. So my likely configuration would be 7.1

L and R speakers Klipsch 6000f
Centre Klipsch 600c
Surround - old Jamo S416 floor standers
Height Front - old S416 Jamo bookshelves
Sub- JBL 10 inch
Amp -Onkyo RZ 830
Bluray/CD- Marantz ud 7007

Would the onkyo be a good match fpr the klipsch 6000f? Also any discernable diff between 8000f snd 6000f. My room is not too big.

Just heard so many good things about klipsch rp series second gen 6000f and 8000f wouldnt want to give it a miss. I am used to Jamo's deep bass so dont wanna lose too much on it either. Am prepared to move from warm jamos to clear klipsch sound as long as it is not bright and it gives dynamism with vocal clarity and accuracy, good soundstage and of course deep rich bass.


Appreciate your views

Just watched Avengers Endgame for the second time in as little as two weeks. Wow, I’m still so impressed with my RF-7 II’s and matching speakers after almost 5 years with them. Finishing my dedicated HT and adding Atmos for a 7.1.4 configuration makes them seem even more lively - way more so than they sever were in my living room. Still so impressed with how dynamic, precise and detailed they are. I was in a/v bliss.

Nice! Wife and I just watched it last night on my 5.1.4 setup and thought it was a great mix, good use of overhead channels and surrounds. I am sure it sounds even better on a 7.1.4!

It had great overhead effects indeed. Overall a superb mix that was enveloping even in the quietest of scenes! I really liked the bass in it too! I had it at reference and it was a blast. I watched it with my oldest son and he loved it too.

Nice! No way wife would let me listen at reference unless no one was home hah I think we had it about -22 dB - our daughter is only 6 months so she will enjoy it in time!

What do you guys think of placing 250s/502s side surrounds for a 7.1 system roughly 4ft above ear level with a slight angle towards the MLP?

Only thing I’d be worried about is if you plan on doing Atmos in the future with them being so high. If not it shouldn’t be a problem.

Thanks.

By the way, I saw your home theater from the link in your signature. That's some good stuff, however I noticed the left and right side surrounds are very close to the seating positions. Do you have any issues with hot-spotting and/or those speakers "overpowering" the others?

Surprisingly they don’t. The room is 12.5 wide for the first 10 feet and narrows to 10 feet for the last 7.5 feet. My upstairs A/C unit is in that spot, so that is what it slightly narrows. When I installed them, I was sure they would, but I’ve been happy with it. I sit in the seat right next to the right surround and it’s hardly ever noticeable that it’s that close. I’m sure if they were monopoles instead of bipoles, it would probably be very distracting. Overall, the room presented many challenges, but with the help of Acoustimac, I was able to treat the room properly and am able to play most everything at reference and get seamless transitions from front to back and overheads. I also put my sub in the back of the room and get a good response in all seats. Since it’s got two 18” drivers - the thing weighs 200 pounds - I was scared it would be overpowering there, but again with proper treating, I love it there. I may add another PSA sub in the front in the future, but probably not for a while. The best of all, I can blast it at reference and you can’t hear it in any of the three rooms upstairs and can barely hear it in the game room right next to it!

Hello all. First time poster but I always enjoy reading the forum. I am hoping some of you guys can help me.

I have a home theater with a projector and a pretty good setup but relatively small. It's a rectangular room (around 30 x 11) and because of windows and such, the area of our theatre is around 11 x 15 or so but it's all an open room. Right now we have a Klipsch soundbar which is fine, but I am wanting to get into real speakers. I have been searching facebook marketplace and found a few options. My question is....should I buy older used speakers (for example there is a guy selling KSW-12 subwoofer, RS-3 II rear speakers, and RC-3 center speaker for $300) or should I just wait until a black Friday sale and buy some new speakers and build from there?

I plan on going Atmos in the future. At the moment I am at 5.1, soon to be 7.1. Eventually I'd want to go 7.1.4 with the 4 Atmos being in-ceiling. Would the in-ceilings clash with the higher mounted 250s?

My opinion - No. Suggestion: Modify the KG5.5's with titanium tweeter diaphragms from Crites Speakers. It's under other stuff on their website (not sure if link will go thru), or call them.


I did the mod on my KG2's and it was well worth it. Good luck.

It really depends on your budget. If you want new, AcousticSoundDesign.com always has great deals. You will need to email or call to find out the discounted price.
