  1. Almost ALL processors introduce hiss in processing mode. If you have a "direct" mode, go to that and try the same test; I believe you'll find it SILENT. Also, you will NEVER hear that hiss at volume, dude. I have an Ultimate Receiver (same amps) and 400x7 Signature amp and you wouldn't be able to stand in the same room with RF-83 system at those volume levels.[:|]
  2. I believe you'll find with RF-83s and an RC-64, the sub won't be as critical. Keep the crossover low (40 hz) and you'll be surprised what can come out of a pair of RF-83s...upgrade to digital sub later...LOVE my RT-12d.
  3. Dang, man; what a STEAL. Yep, the KLF series are amazing speakers. The 20s still go on eBay all the time for over what you paid for the entire system. I hate you.....[:@] not really...great find.[]
  4. The ultimate would be TWO rt-12d's....but I digress.... I purchased the RF-83 system from my local Klipsch installer (not a DEALER, per sei) and he gave me a huge discount over the MSRP. The price he gave me on the sub was @ $1400.0, down from the 1995.00 msrp. A couple of near-new models went on ebay recently for just over $1,000. So it would be possible to have two of them for the price of one/your limit.... $.02...
  5. Here's the link: http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/speakers/1887/klipsch-rf-83-home-theater-speaker-system.html General Consensus (of the complete RF-83 system): The RF-83 system excels with dynamic capability and high sensitivity. The front and surround-channel speakers will play loud with little amplifier power, and all channels have exceptional bass. The subwoofer has Olympic-class bass uniformity (measuring 110 dB SPL at 32 Hz and 105+ dB from 25 Hz and up). Its operating controls work as described, and the room EQ addresses modal irregularities with finesse and understatement.
  6. This is true in 95% of setups.
  7. Found this is an audio mag review of this sub: The Depth EQ setting boosts the 30 Hz region, and the Punch setting boosts the 55 Hz region.
  8. Yes, makes those particular frequencies louder, or emphasized. The reason would be to compensate for any deficiencies in the input signal or subwoofer location.
  9. There is no remote option for the RT-12d. I've changed the settings so many times I lost count when I was experimenting with different positions.
  10. It all depends on your room. My suggestion is to try it where you want to place it and see if you're happy with the response. I've tried mine in many different locations, both with the active drive toward the wall and other configurations. Some work and some don't....you just need to to experiment then use the equalizer function and see what you think.
  11. If you'll read the manual, you'll see that the Depth setting bumps up frequencies below 40 hz, the Punch around 60 hz (I think), and the flat is, duh, FLAT. I suggest keeping it on flat unless there is some reason you want to artificially emphasize a particular frequency.
  12. The damping factor into 8 ohms is 150; that's pretty darned high! That explains the control/tightness of the bass...
  13. Power Handling capacity? MSRP in the U.S.? Specifics about he design; three way? Four way?
  14. I second the 7400; I've been running a 400x7 model (older) for almost a year now and it is PHENOMENAL! These amps are current PUMPS and seem to never run out of juice into ANY load. The manual states it will run a DIRECT SHORT (zero ohms) for a time-limited basis! (good luck finding speaker wire to withstand THAT!)
  15. Everyone should hear a BLOWS systems once...
  16. Can you mount the center UNDER the TV? Also, I agree mounting a TV too high is a (literally) a pain in the neck...
  17. I had KLF-10s for 10 years; sold them this past year and they were still like new. The KLF Legend series are great speakers; they were a little bright, but replacing the crossover with a cusom built made them PERFECT.
  18. Dude; you're going to nitpick over UNHEARABLE distortion at DOUBLE the output??
  19. Sunfire sells a SEVENx400 that is less than that one....www.sunfire.com
  20. KLF-20s have the rubber surround; very durable.
  21. Be sure you check the continuous output on that model....I think it's not that high. Compare against the total consumption of all your system equipment (at full power, NOT at idle).
  22. I have an APC UPS I use with my home theater system. The issue I've had is it doesn't have enough reserve to cover the total requirements of the system (600 watts max, but my Sunfire Ultimate Receiver will pull way more than that at performance levels). I recommend you get one that will cover total requirements, and it won't be ccheap.....may also require a hospital grade outlet on a dedicaed 20 amp service if you run enough equipment from it...things to consider. Also, APC offers a trade-in option for later upgrade that is pretty sweet; like half off a new UPS within a couple of models of the one you're trading in. Check it out on their website, www.apc.com
  23. There's this: http://www.furutech.com/produ_2.asp?ProdNo=263
  24. I agree with all the recommendations and add that you can always add the surround back channels at a later date. I have 7.1, and it doesn't really add much. Maybe in the future, but there just isn't much out there now to even take advantage.
  25. Sealed is the most musically accurate, but generally the least efficient. Bandpass just plain sux because it generally pounds a very limited frequency range. Bass reflex is most efficient but again can get very flappy/breathy at high excursions.
