    • I've never had regular Jameson nor have I tried this (yet).  It was a gift from my nephew.  I normally only drink on the weekends, at least that's my goal.  When I do, I stick to one type of drink (vodka, bourbon etc) so sometimes it takes me a while to get around to stuff.  I've GOT to try the Alaskan vodka James sent me this weekend.
    • What happened to your woofer?
    •   No, don't do this.  The point behind Atmos enabled speakers is for them to be very directional and non-localizable so that it really sounds like the sound is coming from the ceiling.  If you take a heresy and point it upwards, you're going to immediately simply hear a heresy that is laying on its back, going to immediately be able to point to it.  That's no good.   There was a lot of research into figuring out how to pull this off both in directivity and frequency response.  The ones that pull this effect off the best is the built in modules in the RP-280FA.  Otherwise do in-ceilings if possible.  RP-140SA is a choice but they look funny sitting on RF-7ii's, sometimes can be localized, and have a bit of an issue in keeping up.  Do in-ceilings if you can.  
    • Good plan, thanks.
    • Thanks for the feedback Bill - I like the convenience of the modern AVR and am having trouble with losing network connection on my current Yamaha receiver so thought a new one with preamp outs could use my NAD 2200 to make the system  sound even better. The addiction is great lol
    • Have you called Klipsch? They use that same woofer in the Jubilee bass bin if I'm not mistaken? Otherwise Bob Crites offers a replacement but it doesn't look the same.
    • First thing is the R-28Fs will need some break in when bought new.  The woofers will loosen up and the speaker will flatten.  Also we don't know positioning.  Lastly they should be run for a long period of time as large to break them in and likely left as large forever.  Very unlikely you will see the woofers working hard with a crossover at 40hz.  This crosswover would start rolling off at around 60hz or so because the 40hz is supposed to be the sum of both the subwoofer and front speakers.   Set them large, work with positioning, and let them break in.   Lastly, the AVR-589 likely doesn't have much current to push a double woofer system so I would look at a beefier amp down the road.  Perhaps adding some bass will help in the mean time.
    • The only reason I turned the gain up is because they sound like chit.
