  1. Hello! Mind if I bring this thread back to life? Kyldh, you're no longer a newbie. How did things work out for you? I've had a Quintet IV 5.1 system for years and had the front and rears mounted on bookshelves previously. Have since moved and am looking to mount the rears on the wall or ceiling. I'm not as concerned about the appearance of speaker wire coming out of the wall, so much as, where and how to actually mount them. My preference is to mount the rears on the ceiling. I've located the studs, so in my mind, it'll be secure. Any thoughts are appreciated.
  2. Hello, Seeking recommendations on where to mount my rears. I have located the studs in the ceiling. Should I mount them to the ceiling? Is that not recommended? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the input...I'll address your points/comments/suggestions: Size of the room: It's a fairly open space. About a 1200 foot condo, and this will go in the main room, which is an open layout along with the kitchen. I plan on getting the sub that comes with the package. It'll go on the floor to the left of everything. Close to the corner near the window. Not up against the window, though. About 2-3 feet away. Thanks for your advice on the speaker wire. I would never get Monster on principal alone. As for the HDMI's my first HDMI cable is a Belkin. I'll probably stick with those. I looked on Amazon and they're pretty reasonable. Need maybe 6 feet. YPAO thingy? Please explain to this novice! I know the receiver will calibrate the speakers. Is this what you're referring to? As far as placement of the speakers, I think I may just leave the Bose in the wall and just not use them. (Decided not to mess with patching the wall, etc.) I'll probably get stands for the Klipsch left and rights and place them as far as I can away from each other. The TV is in a built-in resting on a marble slab, so I'll just put the center on there in front of the TV. The rears will also go on stands at the far end of the room. The calibration will recognize that they're back there, correct? Another question...What is the difference between the Quintet package and the HD 300 package that they're advertising on the website? http://www.klipsch.com/na-en/products/hd-theater-300-overview/ If they're comparable, or if the 300 package is better, perhaps I'll have some pricing leverage. Thanks again!!
  4. I'm considering this package offered at Best Buy. It's a Klipsch Quintet and Yamaha receiver package. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Klipsch+and+Yamaha+Home+Theater+Audio+Package+with+630W+7.1-Channel+Receiver/9999117200050002.p?id=pcmprd117300050002&skuId=9999117200050002&st=klipsch&lp=31&cp=1 Normally, I wouldn't purchase at Best Buy, but I'm using credit card rewards points to redeem gift cards and the only place they offer gift cards for electronics is Best Buy. That said, I am curious to know any thoughts on this package from the community. I'm a relative novice to home theaters. I've really only had shelf systems. Currently, I have an old Kenwood receiver with Bose left and rights in the wall. Obviously, I'm looking to upgrade. My space is fairly open layout. I'm in a condo. When looking at the TV (50" Samsung DLP), floor to ceiling windows line the left side, and the right side is my kitchen. No wall on the right. There's about 8 feet of floor space behind the couch to the wall that is fairly open space. Again, any thoughts on the package and recommendations on the setup and layout of the system is very much appreciated! Thanks, Phil
