  1. Welcome to the Klipsch community. I have used various stands in the past and never was really happy with them. DYI may be an option since those 81's are so large.

    Hello and welcome.

    I had a very hard time finding a good solid pair of speaker stands, I've ended up making my own and I'm very happy I did.

    You can check skylan speaker stands they look very sturdy but there pricing may be a bit much.http://www.skylanstands.com/stands.htm

  2. Hello Quiksr20,

    You will notice a huge difference by going with the RC-62 and RF-62. I've been using the RC - 62 for two years and it's a great center, you will hear a lot more detail since the speaker uses larger drivers and tweeter. You will also notice music being a lot better with the RF-62's compared with your current mains.

    I have bought from www.sounddistributors.com and they have always given me a good deal. There are other authorized Klipsch dealers that offer great deals.

    Good look with your journey.o

  3. I know that on my hardwood flooring an Auralex Subdude made a noticeable difference. I looked into making my own to try it out but my wife offered to buy it for my birthday so I said "Why not"?

    The first thing I noticed was that the stuff hanging on the walls did not rattle as much. Also the bass became tighter with less boomy output. Overall the sound was cleaner with a more linear frequency response. The only thing I added was the Subdude under my 12" Velodyne.


    I bought a great gramma a couple of years ago to try to tame vibrations and it made things a lot more enjoyable while watching movies. It may not have the same effects in every room but it was definitely worth it in my situation.

  4. To be honest they made a huge difference with the echo in my room, its very open and with the laminate flooring it was just too much. Im sure if I had carpet in the basement the difference would not have been as noticeable. I made the panels my self so the cost was minimal, i think about $150 for 8 panels including the hanging hardware.

    You could always buy a couple OC 703 2x4 2 inch sheets and put them up and see if you notice anything, i paid $10 per piece.

  5. Nice and neat I like it, and the dog picture. How is the sound with the wood floors.

    Thank you duder,

    The laminate floors have been an acoustic nightmare, I have seven 2x4 panels that have helped a great deal with the echo its not perfect but a lot better. The Auralex great gramma sub risers have also helped out a lot due to the wainscoting vibrating at certian frequencies, I did have to bumb up the gain on the subs a bit but well worth the price.

  6. Well I figure its about time I posted some pictures of my HT in progress, there is still a lot of work to be done to the room but here is the front sound stage, the surrounds are up but I didnt want to show the mess that is behind the seating position.

  7. Greetings

    I started off with the same quintets and i bought my current RB-81's and used them with the quintet center and it worked but as someone else mentioned the center channel does get overwhelmed.

    I would save up for the RC-52, i owned that speaker as well and it was a huge jump in sound, everything sounded bigger (sound stage).The center channel and the subwoofer tend to be the most important speakers in a home theater.

    When listening to music you will notice a huge difference between the quintets and the RB-52's. Don't get me wrong your current speakers are good but the 52's will be a huge step up in sound. Plus like you said you can go from 5.1 to 7.1.

  8. A middle of the road action movie with to much LFE that seemed like noise with no point to it. The new Total Recall was a much better BD.

    Did you watch it in 3D? I wish I could rent 3D's from redbox or even blockbuster.

    I watched Dredd last night and it was just dreadful (dreddful) the disc i rented had both the 2d and 3d versions on it.

    Well I'm glad I didn't buy it, I'll rent it tonight instead. I was disappointed with the new Total recall since they didnt go to Mars.

  10. Rented this one from Redbox tonite.


    I liked it, much better than I first expected, I decided to give it a try after reading quite a few good reviews and I'm glad I did.

    It was definitely a Different movie, I really enjoyed it. Great audio and visuals with a unique prospective on history.
