Hello All.


Here is my current setup(audio wise).


Pioneer 84-txsi

Klipsch RF-82's

Klipsch RC-62

Klipsch RS-52's

BIC H-100 Sub


Just setup the Rf-82's last night(replaced a pair of old Marantz HD 880s), and just didn't get that full sound that I was expecting. I live in a townhouse, where my "theater" is upstairs. The upstairs is one large open room, with a 15-17ft cathedral ceiling. The acoustics are horrible because the room is so large and tall. I'm thinking that delivering more power to the speakers could help to get a fuller sound.


I would think an amp that would deliver 200ish watts a channel would be plenty. Never shopped for an external amp before, curious what might be out there that won't break the bank($800ish total).


Thanks for your help!

Klipsch are very efficient speakers so don't require a whole lot of power. If you don't like the sound, chances are you have the wrong speakers for your taste.

I did run the Room EQ after setting up the new speakers.


Could also be that they need a couple more hrs of play time to break them in as well.

I had listened to these a few different times at a A/V Store in town, and loved the way they sounded. However, the room in which they were being tested was about 1/3 the size of where they are setup now.

You don't need an amp, it's your room.

Room treatment is the remedy not amplification. I have 18ft ceilings as well and I was astonished at the improvement of overall sound once I treated my room. A couple bass traps will do wonders. Look at GIK acoustics. They have a 100% money back guarantee.
