  1. It is an LG LHB953 Amplifier Stereo mode: 155 W + 155 W (4Ω at 1 KHz, THD 10%) Surround mode: Left+Right: 155 W + 155 W (THD 10%) Center: 155 W Surround: 155 W + 155 W (4Ω at 1 KHz, THD 10%) Subwoofer: 225 W (3Ω at 30 Hz, THD 10%)
  2. Wow! That's all I can say about the Quintet speakers now that I've spent some time in the camper. The sound is incredible. Now I need some input on a passive subwoofer to replace the Panasonic one. I say passive as I frequently camp without power and am limited to the amount provided by 6 golf car 6 volt batteries.
  3. Newegg has the Quintet 5's for $250 so I ordered them. I'm sure there will be quite an improvement in sound quality.
  4. The Quintets are: Satellite 8.3" H x 5" W x 6.3" D Center: 5" H x 12" W x 6" D What are the Polk's?
  5. It came that way from the factory and sounds pretty good considering the speakers. The current system is an LG LHB953 http://www.lg.com/us/home-audio-video/lg-LHB953-home-theater-system but uses the original Panasonic speakers and sub. I just noticed the amp says 4 ohm at the speaker connection. There is plenty of volume now so I don't think that would be an issue.

  6. I'm thinking it's time to replace the factory Panasonic speakers in the motorhome. In a small speaker, is there anything better (no bigger) than the Klipsch Quintet? The Quintet is physically about an inch larger than the current speakers and I can't fit anything any larger than them.
  7. It did improve the sound quite a bit. I was tempted to turn them upside down as was suggested but they are so heavy I didn't really want the workout. As far as the original reason I started this thread, RC-64 Clarity, I'm not sure yet. I watched Gettysburg last night & it sounded good so we'll see if other shows are the same.
  8. My tombstone will read "Left alone he foolishly rearranged the furniture" It does sound better & everything is aimed at the main listening area. I haven't really checked it out yet. I about got a hernia moving them but I can always blame that on you guys!
  9. Loads of good info, I'll try some of the suggestions & let you know. I won't be able to get to it right away due to other commitments that have come up.
  10. Do I understand that you may be inferring that the autocalibration may not work due to the positioning and in your opinion a manual calibration may be required? I realize positioning is a big issue.
  11. Scrappy, didn't I see that you had an Emotiva amp some time back? Comments? I'm not emotional about any product and just like lots of bang for the buck with quality.
  12. What I think I'm hearing is although further testing is needed the majority seem to think it is the amp. I also understand the comments about the RF-7 positioning, I should turn them upside down & see what that sounds like. You can see from the photo that the options are limited as long as there is an opposite polarity influence & I'll be here till they carry me out in a pine box! For a number of years I have kicked around the idea of something like the Emotiva XPA-5 and UMC-200. It seems like once you get a good amp it should last forever but the technology always outdates the preamp, processor and the inputs keep changing.
  13. Always a slippery slope posting a photo! Willand, I understand the narrow sound stage but have difficulty thinking that causes the center channel clarity problem. I would think that speaker is such a monster that my neighbor down the road should be able to hear and understand it. Derrickdj1, yes it has the DRC turned on. Haven't tried a phantom center, that's an idea as well as Scrappy's suggestion. K5SS, the DLP is tilted down which works very well in my recliner. You should see the bedroom TV, it's up on the pot shelf & tilted down also. All those years in hotel rooms, never did like looking through my knees at the TV. I keep hearing Yahama being repeated & that may be the problem but that's a big step. I keep looking at Emotiva's web page though. I know, I know, I know the speaker positioning sucks but it's better than it was when they were behind the furniture. She doesn't mess with my work shop & is very vocal about her area. I haven't been able to design a muffler that works on her but I'm still working on it. Have you ever tried to put a muzzle on a tiger?
  14. Nothing between the speakers & me, the plant gets moved out of the way during video. The RC-64 is under the TV in the cubby & my seating position is about 20 feet directly in front. I have done the Yamaha automatic audio setup. I haven't really fiddled with tone much, everything else sounds great.
  15. I'm using DeanG RF-7's in front with an RC-64 center channel and Paradigm rears driven by a Yamaha RX-V3900. I always struggle to understand the verbage through the center channel while watching movies. I always assumed it was my hearing but after a recent hearing test I know that is not the case, at least not entirely. The center volume is good, I'm just wondering what I can do to improve the enunciation?
