  1. So I purchased the Emotiva XPS 3, gen. 3 and waiting to it to get shipped. Can't wait to get it up and running.
  2. Thanks for everyone's comments. I thought that I have a pretty good system in the scheme of things even though it is 15+ years old. I am looking at an Emotiva XPS 3, gen. 3 Amp to add to this system to run the L/C/R channels.
  3. I am slowing upgrading my Klipsch older speakers to the newer Reference Premier system. So I am looking at the RP-502S Surrounds as upgrades. Any comments or suggestions?? RF 83s, RC 64, RS 62s, 2 SVS 16 Ultra subs, 4 SVS Prime Elevation Atmos speakers, Denon X4500W AVR, 5.2.4 system. So far the Denon runs the system without any issues. Any comments about an external amp?
  4. Bought another SVS SB 16 Ultra so now have a matched pair. They sound great.
  5. Updating my Atmos speakers and these are for sale. Purchased new by me in September 2016. Asking $300 for the four of them. Cash only and local pickup in the DFW, Texas area.
  6. Thought I would post this for everyone who is a fan of Klipsch speakers and Paul Klipsch. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Klipsch in Fort Worth, Texas at Marvin Electronics when he was there at a presentation of Klipsch speakers. Attached is a folder he signed for me and he dated it 84-04-27, year, month, day. I have one of his "Bullshit" buttons somewhere. It was a night I will not forget. Been a Klipsch fan ever since. FYI
  7. Purchased new by me in March, 2004. Black RSW 15, Amp updated and repaired by Edwards Electronics in Phoenix. Upgrading to two matched subs. Have invoice, original box, Owner's Manual, and Service Manual. Grill and 4 posts intact. Prefer local pick up only in the DFW, Texas area.
  8. Sent the amp and back control panel off to Edwards Electronics on Monday, December 5, got it back yesterday, January 4. Installed the repaired amp, fired up the RSW 15 and its works great. Guess it was the amp all along. So thanks for all the comments and I am now back in business. I also purchased a second subwoofer, so I will see how they work together, waiting on a new subwoofer cable.
  9. I have a Black RC 62 for sale for $200.00. Purchased new by me on 5/11/06 from Starpower in Dallas, Texas. Have all paperwork and boxes. Don't have a need anymore, had a 6.1 system now have a 5.1.4 system. It was used as a back channel speaker as I have an RC 64 for center. Excellent condition. Pictures available if needed. DFW, Texas area. Buyer pays shipping if required.
  10. OK, the RSW 15 started the popping/clipping/rattling again. So I purchased the repair from the Edwards Electronics and the amp and back control panel are on their way to Mesa. When I opened up the sub, it smelled like something was burnt. So I am leaning towards a bad amp. As someone else said, Klipsch uses adhesive strips to attach the back control panel to the wood of the back of the sub. That was the worse part of getting the sub apart. Any recommendations on whether I need to use an adhesive before I re-attach the back panel, if so, is there an adhesive recommendation??? Parts left DFW, Texas yesterday and delivery is scheduled for Thursday via FEDEX, pretty quick. I am crossing my fingers to get it back before Christmas. Been communicating with Edwards Electronics via messaging, they have been very good so far. Will update with additional information later!!!
  11. I have my panel and amp out on my RSW 15 and sent to Edwards Electronics. What do you think Klipsch used for the adhesive on the panel? I want to use the same stuff when I re-install the panel. I had a tuff time getting the panel off, but finally did using a putty knife.
  12. Well I think I have solved my own problem. I re-ran Audyssey on the Denon X4200. I set the Sub to 70dB (per the 4200) and let Audyssey set the room corrections. All crossovers are set at 80dB and when everything was completed, using all 8 positions on Audyssey, everything has corrected. I presume I was running the RSW 15 with the volume/gain set way too high which was causing the clipping/distortion at certain times during movies (initial cannon fire in Master and Commander, depth charge scene in U-571, initial scene in Saving Private Ryan). Now I hear the RSW-15 and there is no issues as there was before. During normal TV watching, I have run an SPL meter and it indicates 50-55 dB and will peak to 70-75dB during loud scenes. The next thing I am going to do is try and move the 15 to different locations and re-run Audyssey and see if I can obtain more bass. Right now the 15 is between my mains. I am limited as to where I can put it due to kitchen entrance on left side of room and front entry on right side of room. I also have a slanted ceiling, 8' to 21' at the top of the fireplace, which makes for interesting (not the best) room corrections. But I have to live with that or try and convince the wife to change the game room to a home theater room, won't happen!! Thanks for everyone's help with my dilemma. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about all of this but I learned from you guys. Any other comments appreciated.
  13. One correction, 5.1.4 system instead of 7.1.4. Big fingers.
