  1. Thanks for the replies, and the Edwards Electronics suggestion. I have sent them a note. I did open the sub - figured I have nothing to lose. I see nothing obvious. Anything worth checking with a volt meter? What about replacing it? What is as good or better?
  2. I am bummed. My 12+ year old RSW 15 has died. If I leave it plugged in and switched off for a few minutes and then switch it on - I get a brief red light (less than a second) and then nothing. Sometimes if I leave it plugged in and switched on - the red light will come on and stay on after about 30 to 45 minutes. Will never go green - and, obviously, no sound. Any ideas? Worth fixing? This beast has been the cornerstone of our HT setup since we bought it (along with RF7s, RC7 and RS7s). It has been driven by a Yamaha RX-Z1 and now a Denon 4311Ci (the Z1 kicks the Denon's behind btw). Dilema: what to replace the RSW 15 with? Does not have to be Klipsch - do they even have a comparable or better model today? What other brands/models do y'all suggest? 95+% of our HT use is movies.
  3. I will be replacing a Yamaha RX-Z1 in the not too distant future. I use this to power a pair of RF-7s, RC-7, pair of RC-7s and a RSW-15. Most of my use is HT....and this setup kicks tail. I am looking to replace the Z1 - in order to get a receiver that handles the HD sound tracks that BD provide. I will possibly add a couple of rear speakers too (will pick up another pair of RS-7s if I decide to do this). When I listen to music (not often) with my current setup some of the high notes/treble feel almost "harsh" if that is the right word. Any people pair the "older" Reference line with a current Denon (4810.../)? Any thoughts? Stick with Yammy? Price up to approx. $3k... Any thoughts? Thanks.
  4. Thanks for all of the info, folks. It is appreciated. A riser of sorts is an option - only thing is I am not sure how the TV (65") would look on one. An RC-64 an option? Or, does this have the same issues as the RC-62? - not a good fit with my existing setup.
  5. Thanks for the info everyone. I will stick with the RC-7. Standout does have some nice stuff.....all that I could see on their site would not fit the RC-7 (26" wide, 9" H). I am OK with buying a nice piece for this endevor....the wife says it will be so. I have been looking at Salamander Designs too ...they have Quad 20 / 245 in which the RC-7 may just fit....big $$$ too - anyone tried this?
  6. I have had my speakers for approx. 6 years (RF-7,RC-7,RS-7 and RSW15). The RC-7 has sat on top of my 65 Toshiba RPTV for all of this time. Time has come to replace the TV...I plan to pick up a 65" Plasma (Panasonic). Which I want to place on a TV stand - don't really want to wall mount it unless I absolutely have to. Dilema : What to do with the RC-7? Ideally, I would like it on a shelf under the TV....but very (very) few stands have a compartment that can accomodate the RC-7. Any suggestions? Also, if I replace the RC-7 - with something a tad smaller RC-62, maybe - this will give me a few more options - but will the RC-62 sound OK with the rest of my speakers? I am currently driving the system with a Yamaha RX-Z1 - which is great - but no HDMI inputs/outputs [] - this may need replacing too....but that is another story. Any thoughts - thanks.
