  1. Almost every panel TV I’ve ever owned I’ve used the vivid setting, and tweaked it a little bit (I usually bring down the contrast and back light a bit)… A lot of people prefer the standard or cinema preset,  but me personally I really like when colors are bright, and pop.

    In most panels you can shut the "Soap Opera" setting off. It's usually a motion correction, or color enhancement setting. My Samsung has it, while it does help a little with motion blur it wrecks the picture. It's off for good.

    You beat me to it. A lot of these TV displays have different titled enhancement features that come on default… what people like is going to be different obviously, but the first thing I recommend anyone doing is going in their settings, and toggling the enhancement features on off.

    It’s simple if I own the home and pay the bills it’s my home but I do invite people in if they behave.. 😉


    Klipsch owns and pays the bills for this home/space and they do invite people in within certain guidelines to enjoy sharing this place.


    As far as anyone from Klipsch being here is irrelevant and not required to enjoy this space.

    Right, and there was a time where you could own people as property, and you could do whatever you wanted with them, and you wouldn’t be breaking any rules or laws.

    ** my point is is just because something is within the rules doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right**

    No one is arguing that Klipsch is not within their right to do whatever they want on this forum. If you throw a party are you seriously going to tell people to stop talking about a movie you don’t like just because it’s your house and you can boss people around?

    This is simply wrong and looks like you are just trying to stir up problems now.

    OK, fair enough, but who is the person that made these rules and enforcing them? I’ll be happy to retract what I said if I’m wrong.

  5. Some of the off-limit topics on this forum weren’t always the off-limit topics (that has changed a lot!). And I would say that this is not Klipsch ‘s house (their barely ever here), IMHO we should be the ones that dictate what type of discussions we wanna have as long as we’re not disrespecting anyone in the process I don’t see the issue. If I want to compare this with that, or if I want to talk about upgrading this, or modifying that …who cares 🤷‍♂️

    Again I’m speaking my opinion so I’m not expecting anyone to agree or disagree. I just think the policing, and censorship has really ripped this forum apart., and drove so many former members away …There’s barely anyone ever logged in compared to what it was years ago. That didn’t happen on accident. I’ve had plenty of conversations with people that have left this forum, and why… so I’m not just making this up.

    I have been wrestling with the same dilemma for my new setup. One of the main issues that I had when designing my old theater was that I would watch a movie at the theater, then go home and watch a movie but could not get over the fact that voices came from below the TV because of the positioning of the center speaker. I was not satisfied until I purchased an acoustically transparent screen and I placed my center channel speaker behind the screen. I would be back to voices coming from below the screen if I go the TV route again. 


    Transparent screens are super nice. I love the clean look, and being able to have a matching center channel…

    Personally, I’m a big fan of a phantom center depending on what center you’re trying to run. I’ve had my share of smaller center channel speakers, and no thank you. Unless the center channel is just as good as the right and left channels it ends up being a downgrade vs a phantom…The voice is to important too use a smaller/lesser speaker in my opinion (music and movies).

    After seeing your room, and setup, just get another projector. You already have it all setup, just pop in a new projector. 

    If I had that room, it would be a projector. That screen alone is almost the price of a nice panel. Panels over 100in, are STUPID expensive. A few years ago at CES, I saw a 150in panel, it was over $20k 


    My room is far smaller, we sit 8ft-10 ft from the screen, and there are windows, with entry ways without doors. My room just has a 85in panel. My other half has said no to a 95-100in. 

    That’s not my room anymore. I sold that house a few years ago.

     Compromise is found in home theater , the question  is where are you willing to compromise ? I would  suggest avoiding   small  screens . after all the screen size is  related to the field of view , and this is the single most important aspect to achieving the immersive effect that we’re all striving for . Size is imperative here , it’s importance shouldn’t be underestimated . A 100 inch OLED display will unfortunately be too small for many home theaters , as the optimal  field of view would put you in a 10 ft seating range or less  . A projector gives much more flexibility in the choice of speakers , room size ,and  seating position. Yes a flat screen is the easy choice , and it may be the best choice in many cases , but for a deluxe dedicated medium to large theater room with big powerful speakers , a projector offers not only more  flexibility and emotional satisfaction , but also , to my eyes a more pleasant and comfortable  image . 


    Until very recently, 100 inch LED TV was basically impossible from a budget standpoint. Now there half the price of a nice projector set up. They’re even cheaper than a nice screen lol.

    You might be right though about 100 inches being too small. I would have to see an outline or something on the wall to know for sure.

    I  like the new nearfield projectors that can sit on a conso! Next to the wall and. project 100-120 image crystal c!ear. The near field projector is located up front.


    You can use it for regular TV.


    I really like the nearfield projector idea…the AWOL VISION LTV-2500 projector for example. It has a lot of what I’m looking for (don’t have to ceiling mount a projector and run wires plus 3-D and awesome picture).


    Pretty expensive, and I’ve read dialing in the image on the screen can be a pain. Not great for false wall set ups either. Definitely still on my list of ideas though.

    Projectors are at their best in a dedicated room with controlled lighting , dark walls and ceiling , no windows please. Yes , a hassle to set up and not always convenient or flexible to use , but in the right room a huge screen and projected image is the more satisfying and immersive image in my opinion. It’s not just the size either , a good projector will provide an image without the unnatural harshness a flat panel produces. A projectors image is cast to the screen ,then reflected to the viewer, consistent to the way our eyes see the world. A direct view flatscreen projects light directly to our eyes and the difference is unmistakable. I prefer a projected image , and the greater size is icing on the cake .

    You make a lot of great points that I agree with… I had a JVC reference line projector the PQ was pretty awesome. Plus, having the ability to have a scope screen is another huge advantage. I also love having everything behind the screen and having that clean look.

  11. If it’s good enough for our countries first amendment…. it definitely should be good enough on speaker forum. 


    “ freedom of speech: is the right to express opinions without government interference or censorship” 

  12. I am sad that 3-D has died on flat panels… 3-D is awesome when it’s done right… that’s one of the major lingering issues that makes me still wanna still go projector (besides size ) 3-D is still really relevant in the projector world.

    Sitting about 10 feet away from a 125 inch screen with good 3-D is really hard to beat.

    Personally unless I needed over 100in, it would be a panel. Projectors need so much more work to setup and use. Plus projectors don't have the color depth or luminosity of a panel, unless you spend serious $$

    So true… with projector everything is a monster hassle. But there is a pretty big difference between 100 inch and 125 for example

  14. Soon I’ll be building another dedicated home theatre room. I always assumed I would be going with a projector/screen again, but with the cost of these big panel TVs coming down so much I’m having serious second thoughts…. Some of these 98-100” tvs are in the 2k range (really tempting 😳).. I’m curious of the thoughts of you all on this topic. 

  15. I don’t have an opinion on any of those models (I haven’t owned any of them)… but personally I would move heaven, and earth to make Atmos happen in your amazing room 💕……When Atmos first came out, I kind of thought it was more of a gimmick than anything, but I’m definitely sold on it now… It truly creates a 3-D sound. The atmosphere is the biggest part, and is fully immersive…As far as keeping up I would be very surprised if anything from the pro line didn’t work for Atmos duty… as mentioned earlier, they are technically a full range channel, but if you’re crossing them over at 80 or 100 I don’t think it really matters. I have owned the 1201s that you have, and I would definitely go with those (ceiling mounting probably won’t be very easy though)… but I really like that 1.75 compression driver (I had a pair of them in my set up as sides surrounds)…. Atmos don’t technically have to be on the ceiling though. You could bump them up to where they’re pushing the ceiling on the sidewalls for example.

     I would pull the grill cover to make sure nothing bled through to the drivers if its just the foam that's an easy fix either wash it or a little paint if need be. Not sure it would be worth the hassle and expense of returning the whole speaker(s) for just the foam / grills, for me anyway. 

    Return the grill

    To be honest, I have no idea; they arrived like this.  While it's strange to remove a grill to wash something that's brand new I'm not opposed to it.

    Is it just one of the speakers?…. I would return it personally.
