  1. thanks guys. I checked the ebay listing. they look nice, but too rich for my budget right now. I may have to save up a little more and keep my eyes peeled out. Just curious, but can that 2.2VL be put on it's side, vertically? I assume that since the tweeter looks round with no horn that it can. Am I wrong? I searched with "Klipsch KG" and couldn't believe some of the prices some people are asking for other models in this series.
  2. Are you suggesting another 3.2 for the center? If so, I understand the timbre aspect . . . but I don't think my wife will stand for another speaker that size. As it is, she thinks those are too big
  3. So did you make some change in the "7 channel enhancer"? I was wondering about that. It's the setting I keep my set on right now. Seems to sound the best. I do see that the display shows the correct 5.1 setup I have. I made the configuration changes, so that's probably why. I just wonder why they don't have a "5 channel enhancer". They must have known that some users will have a 5 speaker setup. I may have to keep a look out for 2.5's as well as 2.2's. What's the big difference? I suppose I'll look it up and see. I have never looked into how the Kg series is numbered. I just figured that on my 3.2's, it means 3 speakers, with 2 active.
  4. Good idea, thanks! I see you have a Yamaha AVR as well, very closely related to the RX-V665 I got last week. I'm hoping to enjoy it like the Yamaha R-V701 it replaced.
  5. Hmm. Seems like the 2.2 is the way to go. If the price was right, I'd certainly go ahead and get a pair, and just use one. There is a guy locally with a KT-LCR. I don't know yet if it's black, or oak, or . . . the specs on this site say it's THX certified. I don't have THX on my Yamaha, but I assume the certification would mean it is good? BTW, I don't mind spending some time waiting for the right speaker to come along. I'm in no hurry and currently selling another piece of gear to help finance this move.
  6. Good to know, thanks! I'll play around with the setup this weekend. I also have some Boston Acoustics A40 speakers ready to refoam, and I had thought of even putting them in the rear, but don't think my wife would approve
  7. After getting the main wiring hooked up last night to watch some tv, I was surprised at how well the Kg's did. As for not using a center channel, maybe I'm brainwashed . . . to have a 7.2 receiver and only using 4 speakers and sub seems like I'm wasting something . . . but as you say, the reality is whatever setup works for my space and sounds good should be my goal. I may try that out in the next few days. That is, without the center speaker. I haven't tried to use the YPAO microphone that came with the Yamaha to do the proper setup. I'll be curious to see how that effects things. By the way, these Kg's have the Bob Crites titanium diaphragms, which I'm glad I got. I can only imagine how the BEC crossovers would help.
  8. Hmmm. Bummer. I only have about 10-11 inches of width to fit a speaker, so maybe I need a different make? Maybe PSB alpha? I understand what you are saying, but I hope that somebody makes or made a center channel that will work. The small JBL is 6.5 inches wide, 4 inches high, 4.25 inches deep . . . it's not bad, but there has to be something in between that would sound better, right?
  9. Hey guys, I have a pair of Kg3.2's in oiled oak that are up front in my 5.1 setup with a Yamaha RX-V665. I used to have these as speaker B along with my JBL SCS 110 satellite speakers + subwoofer. This was too much to look at for my wife, so I moved the small JBL fronts to the rear and the Kg3.2's will do front duty . . . but I still have the small JBL center channel, which is or appears to be the exact same as the other fronts, which are now in the rear. Confused? I hope not So my thoughts for a visually and sonically balanced setup are to find a Klipsch center channel in oiled oak that can stand/sit next to the tv cabinet my HD tv is sitting on. A key point I need to make is there is not enough room for a typical horizontal center channel to sit on the cabinet just below the tv. Plus the center between the fronts is to the side of the tv. Crazy, but this is the only way it all works in the wide room with fireplace. Any thoughts?
  10. They were $52 plus shipping. I haven't listened much yet, and my sound source wasn't ideal . . . but since I did one speaker and hooked up to go back and forth with the balance knob, I could hear the biggest difference on classical in that the highs were smoother. The upgrade delivers a refined improvement. Granted, if the setup/sound source were better than what I have, I'm convinced I would hear a bigger difference. But even so, it's enough to make the expense worth it to me. The way I look at it, is if the speakers are "keepers", then any investment I make that delivers improved sound and more enjoyable experience, and joy of ownership, it's worth every penny. At some point, I will have to make a decision on how I want to approach the crossovers. That should be even more significant, but I knew that I wouldn't do that without FIRST replacing the diaphragms. One last thought is if I buy any other Klipsch speakers (vintage), I will most likely assume I will make the same upgrade
  11. Got the Crites titanium diaphragms yesterday and installed this morning. Pretty simple really. Now to get my AV system proper so I can get a good source running out of these speakers . . .
  12. Just put in a set of titanium diaphragms today. I'm looking forward to getting my living room system up to speed so I can enjoy these Klipsch Kg3.2's
  13. It's interesting, but I noticed the plastic trim ring is not perfectly round and get close to the surround. The rim of the speaker doesn't seat perfectly on the face of the cabinet either. But then I looked at the other speakers in the other cabinet and noticed there are similar variances. I can't imagine it effects the sound. The bass is amazing for their size, as I was playing some different scenes from the Lord of the Ring DVD (since this TV system isn't setup for music yet) and those woofers were really moving on some things. I decided to tone it down though and let the rubber slowly get some exercise on regular TV for a few days . . .
  14. I got the NOS passive woofer today! It came in the original box from Klipsch back in 1995. It did not have the thin foam gasket to go between it and the speaker, but I went ahead and installed it and it works just fine. Do I need to have a thin gasket in there? Also, I ordered the Bob Crites Titanium diaphragms today too . . .
