  1. I doubt cello tape will hold for long. The air pressure could easily push it loose, and then you might get interesting whistling noises from air passing under the tape. I would thread a short 1/4" bolt into the hole, preferably with a small o-ring to seal it. It was just a temp solution to make sure and pinpoint the problem. I'll surely see and fix it permanently. Is it possibly a design flaw i just bought up? if so then I do deserve a little something from Klipsch.
  2. I just put cello tape on the holes, my centre channel is crossed at 80hz. The noise did increase when I put it at 50 Hz (i.e., I could hear it at even lower volumes) and vice versa.
  3. It has been 3 years now since I have had The Ref Setup, recently upgraded the centre to RC62, and bought another Rc52 to make a pair and started to use them as rear surrounds. All was fine until the other day while watching "The Great Escape" chapter 3 time being 00:16:40 onwards that a distinct noise could be heard from the centre channel during the loud music playback. I tried all 3 centre channels that i own and the noise came back on all three at high volumes but vanished on low volume, then i tried locating if the horn tweeter or the woofer was making the noise, it was then i pinpointed the noise to be coming from below the speaker. Yes the noise on all three centre channel speakers was coming from the holes given below the speakers to screw the tilt adjuster, when i closed the holes the noise vanished and i could play even more loud without any trouble. Has anyone faced this issue?
  4. @ cornfedksboy second sub is definitely on the cards, i'm in India so used stuff is hard to come by, unless you are coming anytime soon, you'll be most welcome. @ elitedemo the RC52s do a fantastic job as rears. they are wider, more effecient and more powerful as well, the RBs sure will go a lot more low than RCs but belive me they are superb. @ TurboGen thanks for the advice.
  5. my current 7.1 setup consists of: Fr L/R= RF82 Cen = RC62 Side Surr= RS52 Rear Surr= RC52 Sub= RW12D AVR= Onkyo TX SR 705 i am building a new HT room which will be having two rows of seating, so I was thinking maybe I could add another pair of side surrounds (dedicated amp) to give a more enveloping surround effect, even the room is very long at around 26 feet, with width being 16 feet. i would avoid spending too much also by buing another pair of RS52s so i was thinking if Synergy S-20 or Polk Fxi A4 can do the job. Opinions please.
  6. thanks cornfedksboy, you mentioned something about un-parallel walls, i mean which side should be narower and by how much, i.e. should the width be narrower at screen side or seating side, since this is the only possibility. Also how do i confirm the need for bass traps, and how to figure where to place them. thanks .
  7. Hi, I've a 7.1 rf82 pakcage and an onkyo 705 for which i am looking to build a new HT room of size whd 16' x 9'6" x 25', it is a corner part of a basement that is currently enclosed on 3 sides, i will build a wall on the 4th side to achieve to above room size. i am also using Pt Ax200e and plan on a diy on wall-screen of 160" . How do i get the best sound in the room? do i need to use some acoustical treatment for my room to get best sound i.e. (sound abosrbers, diffusers, carpets etc). Thanks
  8. Hey Bill i reside in India so A4L is not an option i believe, but thanks for you valuable opinion. I already own a RF-82 pkg paired with Onkyo 705 and i quiet like the sound of 'em, none the less I'll try the Marantz this time.
  9. I've just bought a new rf 82II package (7.1), I've shortlisted Marantz 7005 and onkyo 1009 as options to pair with my speakers. which option would be more suitable? thanks.
  10. hi well as far as i can remeber 4 ohms settings is for speakers which have impedance between 4-6 ohms and 6 ohms settings is for speakers which have impedance between 6-16 ohms. regards
  11. Good choice, even if there is a break-in it's not a ongoing thing the new one will catch up. got it.
  12. yes now i have made up my mind, i'll swap them, thanks guys.
  13. thanx for ur precious reply, still open to more suggestions.
  14. I actually bought rf82 pair, rs52 pair, rc52, rw12d somwhere around this time last year from Klipsch autorized dealer (New Delhi). everything worked out fine but i did notice a chipped Vineer at the side of one of my rf82's. I immediately informed the dealer (the same day as that of delivery), and he said that he'll have it replaced. I then stopped an amount of about 200USD which was to be paid after replacement. I called him for six months after that every now and then but he would just linger it on. today he calls me up and says that he has got the replacement. now what should i do, the Speaker is alreday in tune with the rest of the system, changing one speaker for an unused one might bring sound irregualities. so tell me people should i go for changing, or not?
  15. thanks for the trouble you took.
