Check out the glue that is used for woofer refoaming kits. I don’t remember the brand off hand, but have great success with it in the past

Thanks guys. Goop is not avaliable in Poland, but I found Zhanlida B6000 . I hope it will work just the same.

Hello everyone,

I am currently thinking about setting up a theater in a room off of the kitchen. It is 15 feet wide x 15 feet deep and 9 ft ceilings.

Planning on going with a 135 inch 16:9 screen.

The issue is I cant decide which speakers to go with.

So far I have decided between the following:

R-5502-W II LCR behind the screen
Klipsch R 5650 S II behind and above the sofa in the wall

VS

Klipsch RP 280F
Klipsch 440C / 450C
Klipsch 240S - surround on stands


How much better are the floor standing speakers listed above vs the in walls? Are there other in walls I should consider that are slightly more expensive but much better? or are the ones I selected really good?

I currently have 280F and 440C in my other room and like them a lot. Would I be happy with having the R-5502-W II in the other room behind the 135 inch screen or be disappointed?

Pricing is pretty similar, so it is more of an aesthetic and clean look vs floor standing towers...

Generally, how are the Klipsch bookshelf speakers if used for music and home theater ? Are there any good ones for about $300 or less ?

RP series are very good for both. You might be able to find used or open box RP-150m or the newer RP-500m for about that on ebay.

kind of in a pickle for my surrounds.
i'm building a dedicated theater in my basement (finally) but the width isn't great.
to fit as much seating as possible with room to walk to get to the seats, i can't have my surrounds stick out too far (this takes up the walking space and don't want people walking into them).

i had (still have) RS-35s. the depth is 7.5 inches.
i was considering using in walls to replace them, but don't want to compromise my soundproofing.
i can build backer boxes, but klipsch support said the infinite baffle in walls are really made to use the entire cavity inside the studs.

i also don't know if i'd want to use the RS-35s given atmos is more object oriented now.
any other suggestions? the new RP502 and 402 are really just as deep as the RS-35 (6.5 and 7.5 inches).

anyone have any ideas/thoughts? or is in-wall the only way to go, which preserves the space, and is also more directional instead of wide dispersion for atmos?
how much sound quality will i be losing by building a backer box to preserve the soundproofing?
klipsch said i'd lose low-end, but if using a subwoofer am i losing area that would be cutoff anyway to mid-base/midrange > 80hz?
was looking to use the 5800w-IIs in-wall to replace my surrounds.

the rear surrounds could then use the RS-35s or my old RF-35s depending on space/configuration

Has anyone compared the sound of the R-51M to the Sony Core bookshelf speakers ? They would be used for home theater and music.

Thanks.

You can use bipole of monopole speakers with Atmos - I'm using the RS-62 II's as side surrounds and RS-52 II's as back surrounds (both bipole) that work well. If you have plenty of space to the sides and back where your surrounds will be placed, monopoles would be find (the in wall speakers). If you are closer or you are doing multiple rows of seats, then the bipoles would be better, which you RS-35's are.

Good luck with the build - it's definitely worth it, even though the build process is stressful with all these decisions.

Have you considered something from the Klipsch THX Ultra2 line. The earlier model was KS-7800 THX and a newer one is PRO-7800S-THX. There also seems to be THX-8000-S. All of thse are 8" woofer and two 1" tweeters for in wall surround use. These are all somewhat more expensive than the Klipsch RP line but may be what you were looking for.

the problem i have is i DON'T have space tot he sides. to maximize seating and leave area to walk as of irght now i need in-wall, or if i do on-wall then it may compromise seating area.
Also where the wall is that these would be on compared to the lsitening position, i feel like the RS-35 / any RS / RP surround series with a 45 degree angle has the tweeter fiiring too far in front and behind of the listening position. only the woofer would be in line with the listeners since the couch would be slightly in front of where these would go.

in wall 5800 i can angle at the listeners or leave right behind, but both tweeter and woofer would at least be aimed correctly.

The THX 8000 L may be what i need?
Seems like these are sealed rather than infinite baffle.
the S line which is dispersion would be the same as my RS-35s and point tweeters away from the listeners, so L would be better if aimable.

Or the regular 5800w II if a backer box doesn't cut off too much low end where the subwoofer would pick it up could be fine but i won't know until it's installed and measured...

I know it doesn't help you right this second but I am just about to have a set of 5800 W IIs installed as my side surrounds and I have a similar non ideal setup where wall mounted side surrounds would be hard to place/have a chance to be run into

Klipsch RF-7 iii - RP-504C - 4x CDT 5650 II - 2x R-5800 W II

i ordered the green installation kit to atleast have that in the wall to plan spacing to ensure if i do need it i have it, gonna be a bit before we close it though.
i'm curious after you get it in if you can advise how much sound it's letting through to the next room.

I used the backer boxes from Klipsch for my 4 - 5800s in-ceiling for my 5800s. Easy installation and soundproofing.

was looking at those but we've already done most of the drywall work so I was looking at the Dynamat ones as they can fit into just the cutout for the speaker itself - http://www.dynamat.com/architectural...-home-dynabox/

What do you guys think of the R-51M bookshelf speaker ? I'm wondering how it compares to the Sony Core bookshelf speaker. Any advice would be great.

Thanks.

Any thoughts good or bad on the Klipsch F-300? I am aware the RP is better its also priced much higher. I just bought the F-300's for 300 while they may not be the latest and greatest I will be using them to replace the Acoustech Pl-89's. I am not worried about bass response since that is well taken care of. So any comments good or bad??

Haven’t heard them, but a quick google search reveals some good customer reviews, with most citing that the brightness of previous Synergy speakers has been toned down. You got a good deal on them, so it sounds like you are ready to rock and roll mi wouldn’t give it a second thought if you like the way they sound.

Hi all, could someone please explain to me the difference between adding front and rear height speakers verses in ceiling Atmos speakers. Will I get the same effect from height speakers?

In Ceiling Atmos speakers should give the best feeling of being in the sound "bubble" created by Atmos as they are usually positioned 3-4 ft or so in front of and behind MLP and are truly coming from above you. (a lot of the in ceiling speakers also have tweeters/woofers you can aim at the MLP)
Front/Rear Heights reproduce the height aspect but they are usually significantly farther in front of and behind the MLP and have to be tilted/aimed at the MLP as well.

Typically of the three types of Atmos speakers here is the preference/best sound

#1 - In ceiling
#2 - Front/Rear Heights
#3 - Up-firing Atmos speakers/Modules on your speakers (reflects off the ceiling to simulate Atmos effect)

hope this helps!

Yes, thank you. I have extra speakers to use as front and rear height, but not the cash to invest in in-ceiling and installation right now. So, I'll settle for second best for now. Thanks again.

I just joined the club yesterday! Got a pair of RP-600M's delivered last yesterday afternoon. Have them up on monoprice monolith stands, and being driven by an old Onkyo TX-NR809 receiver (135 wpc into 8 ohms; Audyssey XT) down in my secondary (basement) setup.

I'm A-Bing them against the pair of JBL Studio 530's I currently have down there. Audyssey currently has the JBL's room-corrected and crossed into my SVS PB-1000, and I plan to rerun with the Klipsch's sometime this weekend, but for now just trying to A-B them in Pure Direct with no sub and no EQ for a somewhat level playing field...

I've mostly stayed away from Klipsch over the years after having had one or two not-so-great "shouty" experiences at other folks places/setups, but after all the positive reviews and hype online, and the substantial discounted price (25%) on what was already not a particularly expensive piece of gear, and while under quarantine with a lot of time at home, I finally decided to jump in and give them a try... I didn't get much time with them last night (they arrived while I was playing some ball with my son in the backyard, after which I was on Grill duties for dinner, and then bathtime/bedtime routine for my youngest... #DadLife ), but the 20-30 minutes I did get left me *very* impressed and pleased with what I got for the price.


Should make for a very fun weekend of listening and A-B comparing...

Crazy Idea For Center Channel Speaker

I have always liked experimenting with my speakers to get that "special sound", at least to me. With things as they are now, I have plenty of time to try different combos.

What I would like to know is if it would make any sense to use 2 RP-600M's as my center channel speaker? What I would do is lay them horizontally with their tops abutting each other. I would connect them using a bi-wire cable. One pair to one speaker and the other pair to the other. Does something like this actually make any sense? I have the speakers on hand and plenty of time to waste so thought I would ask what others thought about doing something like this.

Appreciate any and all input.



As an aside, I like my current speaker set-up but always looking for something that might sound better.

Spoiler!
