    3 Subs

    The LFE input sends information to the subwoofers only. As long as you're using the LFE inputs, you can use the LFE output for your 3rd sub.

    The phase setting allows you to adjust the blend of the subwoofer with your other speakers. Sometimes depending on where you're sitting compared to where the sub and main speakers are located, certain frequencies can be cancelled out. By having an onboard phase adjustment it allows you to compensate for that. Don't worry about the watt thing. Just put on some music you are familiar with that has a good, repeating bass beat. Adjust the level of the subwoofer until it blends in but doesn't overpower your other speakers. Everyone will have different preferences as to how loud they like their sub. I like it louder than my main speakers for movies, equal to the main speakers for music.
  3. Wow, I don't think I ever heard my sub hit that loud and that low. Definitely a great movie to show off your system!
  4. Speaker level (high level) inputs on subs are generally only used when the receiver/amp doesn't have a sub, LFE, or pre-out section. Best to use the LFE since the pre-out on your receiver (unless its a specific subwoofer pre-out) will send a full range signal to the sub.

    I think your speakers have an LFE out connection, right? I would imagine you could use one of them to run a cable to the 3rd sub. Love the bass, do ya?
  6. Depends on the subwoofer you get and also how loud your speakers play at 25hz. My speakers play down to 45hz but I have my subwoofer play frequencies up to 100hz and my main speakers play from that point on up. I'd say that only a handful of speakers wouldn't benefit from a separate subwoofer.
  7. Here's some tips I gathered from the speaker manual: If you use the 'line in' remove the gold straps from the speaker level in and hook the speaker wire into the 'high' input section only. Line in input may be used together with the LFE input. LFE input must be connected to an input that filters out high frequencies (i.e. subwoofer output from receiver) LFE input should not be connected to a full-range (i.e. line out or pre-out from receiver). Configure the speakers as 'Large' or 'Full Range' on your receiver. 'Bass contour' adjusts volume of low frequencies produced by the subwoofer only. Initially set it to 'flat' and then adjust as needed. 'Line level' adjusts entire bass range when using the 'line in' input. Initially set it to 'normal' and then adjust as needed.

  9. Wife just rented it...will be watching it in a little bit!
  10. When you run the LFE input, all controls of the powered subwoofer are defeated (I believe). Meaning you have to adjust everything as far as bass output level, crossover point, etc from your receiver. The line inputs will work just fine.
  11. LFE means Low Frequency Effect, its the ".1" of a 5.1, 6.1, etc system. It filters all the bass information into the subwoofer(s).
  12. I wouldn't pay $2000 (BIN) but I'd be interested to know what the reserve on them is.
  13. I'd get 'em...if I had the $$. http://cgi.ebay.com/Awsome-set-of-Klipsch-La-Scala-speakers_W0QQitemZ5835493793QQcategoryZ61378QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

  15. Do you regard the RF-35s as being better than the Heresy then? Any recommendation between Forte I or II? Thanks!
  16. I hate going through forum withdrawal. I actually had to spend some time with my wife!! []
  17. At that price range you could look into getting a pair of RF-15s or RF-25s on eBay. I got my RF-25s brand new in the box for $366 + shipping. A huge steal, I know I got lucky. Floorstanding speakers will give you a fuller sound and you probably won't be as anxious to upgrade them for a while.
  18. Many sites view questions like that as a solicitation for others to buy that item. Most sites have rules regarding posting items for sale. Don't take it too personally, the Klipsch site is much more tolerant than many others I visit regularly. [H]
  19. If I were to sell my RF-25s, are there any models that would be worth getting that would be roughly the same $$? I figure I could sell my RF-25s for the $400 range without a problem. Would Heresys be a good replacement? I've never heard speakers that had a midrange horn. Do vocals sound better? I have a powered subwoofer, so bass isn't an issue.
  20. Here's a quote about the speaker wires for the Zu speakers: So, I take it they tell you the 250 hours is the full burn-in time so you are past when you can return them and when you realize these $540 cables sound no different than any other speaker wire?
  21. I think you just disproved your quote... Plus I think in all fairness you should give a little more than 24 hours to make a knee-jerk reaction, especially considering today is a holiday (at least here in the U.S.) and the moderators are probably enjoying themselves and appreciating the fact that they're not sitting in front of a computer babysitting people on here.

  22. Did you even start to read what someone else had posted about this: There you go, Mr. Skeptic. [:@]
  23. I'd really like to upgrade to a different subwoofer such as the Sub-12. Most of the subwoofers I've been looking at don't have any RCA outputs, though. I like having the subwoofer amplify the bass and leave the rest for my HK to amplify. I used to use the high level input/output on my sub when I had my Sony receiver hooked up because it didn't have any pre-outs. So why don't more subwoofers have an output section?
  24. Not quite Animusic, but a definite jaw-dropper! http://www.ffmcobalt.com/WizardsofWinter-SM.wmv
