  1. Trim or gain, same thing. Just wanted to make sure you weren’t in the positive for that. Try turning down the gains to -5dB for each channel and then see if you get the same distortion at higher volumes.
  2. What level do you have the output trim level of your speakers in the receiver’s menu?
  3. Depends on new or used. My best friend gifted me my Sony receiver that decodes 9.2 but has pre-outs for 2 of the 9 channels. I know he paid $500 or less.
  4. Two subwoofers are always better than one. Yes, you’ll need a receiver that can process 9 channels of amplification. Just realize that some 9 channel receivers only amplify 7 channels and you’ll need a separate amplifier for the remaining 2 channels.
  5. There was a Tangent model that was essentially a ported Heresy. I don’t remember the exact model number, though.
  6. You can use it with any device that has a 3.5mm “headphone” output.
  7. FA means there is an Atmos module built in the top. Not worth it in my opinion. The “ceiling bounce” does virtually nothing compared to a true Atmos setup with in-ceiling or height speakers. The Reference Premiere is a step up from Reference, but truthfully if you’re used to Bose anything from Klipsch will sound significantly better. I would budget $2,000 for all speakers and $500 for the receiver. It’s a great time to buy, Klipsch has some awesome sales going on right now.
  8. The CDT series will be timbre matched the best to your front speakers. If you do those, I’d recommend the R-5800 as your side surrounds.
  9. As long as you don’t hear distortion you’ll be fine. That said, I was never happy with how the 805 I used to have sounded for 2 channel. It’s definitely built for theater use.
  10. Equilateral triangle, speakers should be toed in aimed at you.
  11. I have a 5.2.2 setup. Atmos speakers in the ceiling. With movies the effects are significantly better than configuring it as a 7.2 setup. If your receiver is Atmos capable, just configure it that way. You can switch back and forth to see what you prefer if you want.
  12. Surrounds don't go in the ceiling, Atmos speakers do. You'll just need to configure your receiver to be a 5.1.2 setup with the .2 being in-ceiling or height, whichever your receiver will allow. The most popular in-ceiling speaker for this application is the CDT-5800.
  13. Wouldn't it be more appropriate if Heritage were a wrinkly old lady in her 80s?
  14. Play some music and stick your ear right next to the Quartet tweeters and see if they’re making sound.
  15. Despite what you might think, a lot of people including me were raised with values that would make any police presence unnecessary.
  16. I’ve lived in Minnesota my entire life and I’ve never even sat on a snowmobile! 😄
  17. This is a link from last year but there's 360 miles of snowmobile trails here! Let's RIDE! Alexandria Area Snowmobile Trails are OPEN! - Explore Alexandria Minnesota
  18. Tons of awesome lakes and resorts where I live. Summers are beautiful here. If you’re ever in the area you’re more than welcome to stop by!
  19. The camaraderie of this forum is amazing. That said, I’d like to offer anyone in the area a listening session if they’d be interested. My setup consists of three original Heresy across the front, each with the covered K-55V dual phase plug midrange drivers and refreshed crossover networks from JEM. Surrounds are Heresy 1.5. Atmos are AW-650. Subwoofers are Bill Fitzmaurice Tuba Home Theater design, horn loaded each with a 15” woofer. It’s the most amazing home theater I’ve ever had or heard. So, if anyone is ever in the Alexandria, MN area and would like to stop by and experience it, just let me know! I have tons of reference 4K and Blu-ray Discs, Amazon Music to stream any music you’d like, etc.
  20. I’m not knowledgeable enough regarding the design of these, but all I can say is if they are anything like the THTs that I have and if you’ve never experienced horn loaded bass before, you’ll never go back to a direct radiating subwoofer again. Horn loaded bass can go from incredibly detailed and precise one second to making your couch feel like it’s levitating off the ground a second later. The incredible efficiency, lack of distortion and sheer output capability is something everyone should experience.
