Thanks trying to decide what speaker setup to go with after selling off my svs ultras and have been leaning towards the Klipsch rf7IIIs and the center.

Yes, but i would recommend running them off a separate amplifier. I run my RF-7 II’s at reference all the time and they sound quite pleasing.

You got it, make your way over to the DIY section some time but careful, the rabbit hole is deep. The one from GSG is the V1 version, I'm building two of the 16Hz LFE versions with B&C 21" DS115-4 drivers: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/155-d...tor-index.html GSG also make some excellent 21" DIYs: https://shop.gsgad.com/collections/r...-21-flat-packs

I’m on my second 1070 - the first one just died for some reason. I need to invest in a VR system so I can play Half-Life Alyx. Maybe they will give me Half-Life 3 someday.

Thanks for all the info on the DIY subs! I’m sure I will get to it at some point.

I'm another long-time Klipsch owner new to this forum. First Klipsch speakers were a pair of KG4s in the early 1980's. Always loved them. Then in 2002, bought my first 5.1 capable AV Receiver and a set of Klipsch Quintet speakers along with a KSW-12 subwoofer. Great sound there and meanwhile, the old system with the KG4s were in another room and saw less and less use.

Earlier this month, realizing that the 2002 AV Receiver which was not HDMI capable was now doing nothing but audio with a mess of cables directly into the TV to handle video switching, I bought a Yamaha RX-V685. And then it occurred to me with the new receiver 7.1 or 5.1.2 capable, the KG4s sitting doing nothing (but still in great shape), and the front pair of the Quintets in a good spot to be Presence speakers (as Yamaha calls them), to try making the KG4s front main speakers. I realize from what I've read that the KG4s are not a great match with the Quintet but so far, I like the sound but have not really challenged them but haven't watched anything with a more than 5.1 audio track yet). A little testing says the subwoofer is doing a better job with the low end than the KG4s so I have them set as "small" speakers on the AVR so the low-frequency sound goes to the sub.

I am a little concerned about my KG4s being marked as 4 ohm impedance (I've read that over their product life cycle, they were marked as 4, 6, and even 8 ohms - if some were marked as 8 ohm with no actual change, then there should be no issue at all). I never turn the volume way up so I don't think I'll have a problem there and the old receiver driving them (a Yamaha A-520 from the early 80s didn't even have an impedance setting).

Anyway, any comments welcome - either about mixing the KG4s with the Quintet or any possible issues with the KG4s and impedance or anything else.

Once you get into this league the only distortion you have to watch out for is from a (poor) source.

I'm using an rc-7 center channel, but I feel like it doesn't sound like it should for dialogue sometimes I have to rewind a scene due to not understanding what is being said in the film. I've been messing around the my yamaha peq for it but not sure what frequencies to cut or boost, I do also have some room treatments placed in my room. Just looking for some help if possible thanks in advance.

Try putting it on top of one of your panels to reduce cabinet resonance from the speaker to the stand. My RC-64 II had a lot of resonance transferring to my stand and I put it on a 2” thick 24”x48” panel and it sounded so crisp and clear after. Also, make sure the tweeter is angled directly at your ear level of MLP and you have plenty of space between it and your wall.

I use an RC-7 as well but have never had issues.
What is it paired with? also any sub / what is the cutoff frequency?

My RC-7 is on a media stand, however, since the stand is low and since i wanted the speaker straight on ear level i stacked some furniture pads under it to lift it up and reduce resonance.
kind of like these below, stacked like 4-5 in each corner attached to under the speaker to create resonance reducing "feet" and also you can angle the speaker this way by putting more or less on the front or back to angle as you need it. i've never had any clarity issue.
https://www.amazon.com/Furniture-Sli...131131&sr=8-32

also the speaker sits so the front is flush / right in front of the media stand so there's no refection or bounce off of it.

still researching / looking into cutoff frequency of vocals since ideally i'd like vocals to not be cutoff from the speaker to a sub to see if that makes any issue, but so far i haven't had any issues in my current setup with the standard 80hz cutoff or even slightly lower at 60 or 70hz (the speaker is rated down to 45).

Remember for 2 channel the center isn't being used so the cutoff in a home theater using this speaker also needs to take into account not just vocals from it, so it's a trade-off / fine line, but i think 60-80hz should be fine.

Anyone have the RP-404C ? I’m thinking of returning my 400C and getting this instead will it be worth the extra 240 or so it would cost over the 400C ?? I have the RP4000f as my left and right channels

I have the rc-7 on the floor vertical with a door stopper having it angled towards my ears. Maybe it's just me or maybe it's the content I watch.

I cant tell you how different these sound!
I can not make sense of the difference.
At the beggining I said: it the break inn missing..
Then: I said, thankfully I own an Onkyo that lets me select the Stereo Assign to different speakers.

They sound soo different that I ended up thinking I should have left some crossover or Accu EQ bad...

I finally exchanged the cables (as if no Stereo Assig available).

The difference is still there ...

Bass and Dynamic Sound is non existence in the 8000F compared with the 280F.
Voice clarity is better on the 8000F.


Anyone noted the same??

I would really like to hear somebody else with the two of them thoug.
I come to clarify things up a little or a lot since Ive made quiet a lot of mistakes comparing the 280F against the 8000F that today's a month since I've got them.

Until today, the difference was still so notorious, I kept thinking: theres something wrong with them.

Last week I exchange the ampa and the cables from one to the other: same result...

I kept comparing since then ising Onkyo's Stereo Assign feature.

Today, at 8pm I couldnt support it anymore: I exchanged the place of the 280s by the place of the 8000F. That was the whole deal. Now the 280Fs are crap and the 8000F are amazing

Can you set it on a stand? Leaving it on the floor, not matter what you do, will yield the same results. It’s too far away from ear level to put out good sound.

This past FALL, I bought my first Klipsch speakers to replace 8 year old JBL's. I bought the Klipsch R-15M 's and the center R-25C for my small 12 X 8 room. The R-51M has the same specs as the R-15M. The tech at Klipsch said the R-51M is a little better sounding, whatever that meant. I left it at that. The R-15M's were 1/2 price at Best Buy, at the time. The R-25C dialog hearing has been outstanding at all levels, with more help from AVR adjustments, too.

Yes, I use for both OTA, internet, and Directv music. I have no issues and put the AVR on Multichannel mode. Then for HD TV, it is DD surround mode.

That said, I decided to buy the discontinued R-15M and the R-25C and is tied into their 10" subwoofer via AVR. I have been extremely happy with these Klipsch fronts with adjustments via the AVR.

The L/R's tweeters are at ear level angle in towards center listening. The Center Speaker is below the TV screen and angled down at my ears....in my case. The side surrounds are a bit behind my ears with the tweeters 20" above my ears and angled towards my head. I have perfect DD surround and Multichannel, when used.

Hi guys, I just included a pair of RS52II to my set up. I am not very satisfied with its sound.
Does any of you have BOTH the RS52II and RP250S? How would you compare them?

Thanks!

The RC-64 III is the only acceptable center channel to match with the RF-7 III’s. The center is by and large the most important speaker in your front sound stage (for movies) and it needs to be in the same realm of speakers you are matching it to.

Routh Family Theater - My Dedicated Home Theater Build - 7.2.4 Atmos Setup
Seymour AV 100" Electronic Masking Screen - Klipsch RF-7 II's, RC-64 II, RS-62 II's, RS-52 II's, CDT-5650 II-C x 4 - PSA V3600I & TV3612 Subwoofers
Marantz AV7705 with TK421 Modification - Panasonic UBD 820
Emotiva XPA -7 & XPA-5 - Sony XBR-75x940c with Ideal-Lume Panelight (Living Room)

Does any of you have BOTH the RS52II and RP250S? How would you compare them?

Thanks!
You might like direct firing or monopolies better. I've got a pair of rs52ii in the closet. I used them for years until I got rb61iis.

I reaaallyyy liked the WDST and the sound from the RP250S. I bought the RS52II blindly believing the sound would be very similar...
I will continue to test them.

Older Klipsch products will have a brighter sound than the RP series, that's probably what you aren't liking. If you like RP line stuff, I'd probably stay away from other Klipsch speakers with the possible exception of the latest R series, not sure how those sound.

Curious here. If you guys could do one or the other.

5.2 or 3.2.2

I am moving into a new home and don't think I will bother with 5.1 this time, I like it but not sure its worth the effort.

So I am panning to do 3.2, L,C,R and two subs. But I could easily add two height speakers. Anyone ever tried this?

TCL 65R625 -- Denon X3500h -- Klipsch RP600m -- RP450C -- Ascend HTM 200 SE -- Dual Klipsch RW-10
