    I will add the REL Bassline Blue cable for sure.


    Take it from someone who has wasted more money than I care to know on overpriced cables over the years, I would highly suggest not spending $500+ on anything other than something that will actually improve your sound, such as a second subwoofer.

     

    I can guarantee that if you listened to a song, left the room, came back and I told you that I switched your cables out for expensive “high-end” ones, your mind would hear a difference even though they were the exact same cables.

  2. I think any of those will work very well.  Technically Atmos is a full range channel but I doubt much below 80Hz is mixed into them since it would be sent to an LFE channel.  Looks like all three pairs that you referenced have -3dB down points in the 75Hz range or so which would be perfect.

     

    I listen to a lot of Atmos music on Amazon Music and the Atmos speakers are sent more info than I thought they would.  Of course, there’s more info in an action movie for instance, but it definitely is a unique experience for music.

    I suppose z-licious never found the answer.

     


    Even if they did they haven’t been on the forum in over sixteen years.

  4. I say that whomever you spoke to needs more training.

     

    You can use a y splitter with any receiver that has a single sub output.  In fact, virtually all receivers that have dual sub outputs just have an internal splitter anyway.

    what are the limitations you're referring to?

    I know this post is over a decade old, but I hope you still see this comment come through. Back in 2009 I purchased the WF-35, WC-24, WS-24's and a RW-12d Subwoofer. I was powering this with a Yamaha RX-V3900. This replaced an old Pioneer AVR I had and a Bose Accoustimas system. I loved how this sounded in comparison. I never did an A/B comparison though. Once the new Klipsch came in, the Bose got packed away and eventually sold, as well as the Pioneer AVR. I don't remember what the differences were, other than more bass, but I know the overall sound was much better. I have had the same system for nearly 15 years now and have been very happy. I have not listened to any other speakers since. None of my friends have any interest in Audio equipment, and the ones that appreciate good audio can't afford a good system. My system is the one my friends are impressed with so I have no available systems to listen to that are potentially better. 

    15 years later I need more modern components, Ie 4k tv and AVR, and might as well replace everything. I have purchased a new TV and AVR(Denon AVR-X4800H), plus I got a new emotiva XPA-5 Gen3, 4 in ceiling speakers (Klipsch CDT-5800II), and a Klipsch RP1200SW. I'm wondering, how good are my WF-35's actually? I know I liked them better than my Bose, but I have never heard a "high quality" speaker before to compare. I've heard some reviews saying the WF-35's are incredible sounding for the price, but I've also read that they aren't that great and that's why Klipsch never continued with the line. The positive things I've read about these speakers always state, "for their price". Does that mean more expensive speakers sound better? How much better?

    As someone that has owned them, as well as many other speakers, how do they compare? Do you think they are worth keeping and not upgrading? Obviously you replaced them. Would I notice a big difference if I went with something more modern, like the RP8000FII? or would I need to go even higher end to notice an appreciable difference? 

    If you see this, any insight will be greatly appreciated. I would like to replace my entire 5 bed layer speaker setup if it makes sense to. I would be basing my decision on the towers and build around those.  You're the first person I've come across that has had these speakers as well as many others so I figured you were the perfect person to ask if I should replace these and how much better sound I could get with newer speakers, if any.

    Thanks!

    The sub should take over at the XO.  I use my Pioneer SC 99 with a sub  and speakers set to small.   The sub works for music and movies.  The XO is set to 80.


    It won’t for the reasons I stated above.

    a yamaha receiver that is about 10 years old bought new when I got my speakers. 

    So if your sub is working with movies and not music, there’s a 99.9999999% sure chance that you either have your main speakers set to Large or Full Range.  If that isn’t the case, then you’re listening in Direct or Pure Direct mode.

     

    The reason why the sub doesn’t work in those modes when listening to music is you’re sending a 2 channel signal with no discrete LFE signal for the receiver to process.

    I have had nothing but issues with my klipsch sub and nothing seems to make sense. Now I bought a new Apple TV and it seems to only work when I am using the Apple TV to watch movies but will not turn on when I am using the applet tv to listen to music. It has never worked correctly in the 10 years I have had it and maybe worked a total of 2 years. Just doesn't make any sense. I did add the Y-conncector and it doesn't seem to have made a difference. 

     

    What are you using for a receiver?

    I have not used a horn loaded sub. I've never experienced one. This SB16-Ultra fell in my lap for less than half price new and it's been working/sounding great. Like I said, I needed to change how it was wired and configured because of going to a new preamp. I either need lessons in xconsole or someone to help with the dsp on the SVS.

     

    SVS' customer service is awesome.  You can call them up, explain your setup and they'll guide you exactly how to get the sub properly set up and how to use the DSP and any other functions it has.
