I would love to mount these to a wooden wedge on the ceiling to get just the right angle. Too bad we can't buy them here.
Are these a recommendation for my usage, or you just mean for your setup? The depth looks great... but yes says unavailable.I would love to mount these to a wooden wedge on the ceiling to get just the right angle. Too bad we can't buy them here.
I have to agree on this too^ THIS.
For 7.x.4, is it recommended I dont use RS152's for side surrounds with atmos? Also Dolby says to use wide dispersion speakers for atmos heights to create the cinema feel of high ceilings. But someone else told me not to use dipoles (RS152's) for atmos heights so I'm unsure.If you plan to add Atmos you don't want dipoles for surrounds nor do you want to mount them high up near the ceiling. So the R152 would be a better choice.
Not sure why this guy ended up banned, but in case anyone else sees this, RS152's are bipolar speakers and are fine with Atmos.For 7.x.4, is it recommended I dont use RS152's for side surrounds with atmos?

I apologize I don't remember where I read it, because it was maybe 6 months ago, but I read something about, due to the 6.5" woofer (hopefully that's correct) in the R162's being in a bookshelf that size that close to the tweeter, it maybe created some issue in the frequency response that was not as flat as the R152's with their 5.25" woofer.I was comparing my R152s to my R162s a few days ago, and the R152s seemed to sound better and smoother. Anybody else has the same impression? My room is 12'x14' and I could only allow 12 inches for the port clearance, not sure if these factors play a role.
Do you notice any different in listening fatigue with the Infinities vs the JBL's? I think the JBL's have horn tweeters, the Infinities have something else. I cant tell you if people feel the Infinities aren't dynamic, just that it seems most agree with you the JBL's are more dynamic, or have "more soundstage," more bass, stuff like that. Whereas if the Infinities have an advantage, there were comments about the dialogue clarity, high end range, or mid range, but some felt at the cost of being too bright in places. Hope that helps a little.In my downstairs unit, I have 4 263's and the RC263 center. I think the center is a great value for the $. I use this setup exclusively for TV/Streaming/Movies. I think the 263s are just ok. Not very dynamic. Wonder if this is just a setup issue or have others with 263s noticed that they don't really come to life in any meaningful way? I don't want to get rid of them as they were secured new at a realy good price and they have Atmos toppers that fit perfectly on them. That said, I am tempted to try JBL 580s as my 590s are much more dynamic to my ear. I'm not sure if the 580 would be much improvement over the 263 or likely that's just a lateral move and I'd lose my Atmos due to the 580 being sloped at the top. (can't do ceiling in that room).
Just wanted to see if anyone else has felt similar about the 263s or maybe I just need to play with the levels/eq a little.
The narrow part of that waistband is still 40+ degrees…..which is pretty wide coverage. I'll see if I can dig up the responses across the entire width of all my seating with my RC263, compared to my F36...RC263 owners:

The 400 Hz - 1000 Hz off-axis power drop and waistbanding in the directivity is concerning as this is a crucial content range for off-axis listeners. Among other things, voices will sound different to off-axis listeners, based on the measurements.
Can an owner corroborate this?
Other than that bump at 1.3 .. That's very competitive.. I heard the f36s a couple of days ago.. That's a clean sound...i couldn't believe how detailed the bass was...Ok, here's a comparison of one of my F36 across all seats in my room, then the RC263. The F36 is obviously better, but I think the RC263 does pretty well for a horizontal center. I can switch it on and off at any time, and I do often go back and forth to compare, but in the end, it always stays on.

I have F35s and someone local was selling a pair of like-new F36s back around Christmas for $700... took him a month to sell them. I was sorely tempted many times.Other than that bump at 1.3 ..

I would jump all over f36s at $700,a steal...I have F35s and someone local was selling a pair of like-new F36s back around Christmas for $700... took him a month to sell them. I was sorely tempted many times.
On topic, the RC263 was a seamless pairing with my M16s that I had at the time. I've no doubt it would be the same with the 35s/36s.
Not sure how helpful this is but based on my experience with the RC263 paired with the F35s, I'd say 15% or so. The finish and build quality, however, is much better on the Revels, so you will realize huge gains there if that is important to you.There are some F36's being sold near me for a LOT more than that. I won't come close to paying what they want for it. But how much better are F36's vs. Infinity R263s?
