    I had an entire thread about this....lol!  Glad you figured it out.  Leaks are not very noticeable on a ported sub until the low tones are played somewhat loudly, at which point the sub begins to sound like it's farting........ :)

    Oh, yes... and i was so glad that the sub is repaired and while testing it with some frequencies and the problems occured i was just angry! :)

  2. Just to close this one. The guy repairing it didn't put in all screws so the air came out of all the open holes in the back of the sub. He just put 2 screws to hold the electronic unit in place. It's funny because instead of just looking at the sub i jumped to conclusions that the guy messed up the repair. Well, next time i know better ;)


  3. Hey guys,


    It's pretty hard to get older klipsch equipment around here and some weeks ago i was lucky to finde some so i bought a used RC-64 II and the RS-62 II to extend my setup of two RF-62 and a RW-12D Sub.


    Does it make sense to replace the RF 62 with the RF 62 II not for aesthetics (the RF 62 II speakers are more bronze in color), but for sound?

    or maybe even upgrade to the RF 82 II?

    I wonder how you guys think about it.


    so what should i do? just sell them and don't even try it? Hmmm..

    The problem is the massive entertainment center you bought that is apparently longer than 15', not the speakers. Without it, you could do this, which of course is not to scale but you get the idea. The heavens would align and the home theater gods would smile.  Short of this, we're just picking the lesser of a few evils.  






    No it wouldn't been possible because at the bottom there is a door that i forgot to draw ;)

    unluckily i couldn't fit direct firing ones next to the listening position because the couch is completly in the corner of the room and there is no more room next to it.

    The other thing working against you with the back wall situation is that you're going to get strong reflections off that side wall from the outside horn, while the other speaker's opposite side is firing off into no-mans land. Could still sound lopsided regardless of the previously mentioned angles of the inside horns.



    so what should i do? just sell them and don't even try it? Hmmm..

  6. The speakers look very well positioned for excellent listening with a wide sound stage.  This is personal preference, but I like my speakers fairly close to the TV in the center.


    If you have to have your speakers low, can you angle them up towards your ears?  That might give you a little more intense or bright sound.  I like mine that way for jazz listening with a big horn sound.


    I angled the center upwards. The floor stands are not angled because they are at ear height. I think angling the RS-62 doesn't make sense? Or did i get you wrong?

  7. The problem with these angles with these speakers being behind you is that if you're sitting off to the side, you're in direct firing line of a horn on the opposite side, while the ones directly behind you and above you are pointed everywhere but at your head. When both speakers fire, it can sound like the opposite side is much stronger than the one behind you when there are strong effects that go beyond simple ambiance.

    That being said, they work great on the sides. If you had enough room behind you they'd probably work fine there as well.


    Well, thanks! I guess i have to go with it and just mount them behind me and see how it works out. If it sounds very bad i can still sell them, right? ;)


    You had a good opportunity to have some direct firing speakers on stands to the sides which would have worked out well. I would have went that route


    unluckily i couldn't fit direct firing ones next to the listening position because the couch is completly in the corner of the room and there is no more room next to it. My better half would have killed me :)

  8. Hey guys,


    just want to get some suggestions from you where i should put my RS-62 II speakers in this room:




    As you can see on the picture the room is not a perfect square. It is a living room combined with our dining room.

    Do you think the RS-62 II would fit better directly behind the listening position against the backwall (grey boxes on the picture) or mounted to the side of the room (orange boxes). I am a bit concerned when mounting them to the side that because of the different distance to the listening position (and to the front speakers) the sound would be bad? I really don't know because i am new into 5.1 home theater :).



    Unfortunately i cannot try the different position because i don't have high enough stands to put them this high on the positions or any other means :(

  9. Hey Guys,


    i finally got my Klipsch RW 12D repaired (blown sub amp had to be replaced).

    Now i have the following problem. When the sub plays frequencies below 35 Hz there are extreme - wind like(chuffing)? - noises coming from within the sub. The bass is not played correctly. A bit of air comes out of the back from the sub where the electronics are. I also checked if the port tube is loose, but it isn't so this doesn't seem to be the problem.


    Does anyone know what this could be?

    I hope you can understand what i mean. English is not my native tongue. If you need some clarifications i try to elaborate.

  10. I'm not good at visualizing but the picture you posted helps.  I know the RC-64 is large.


    I would put the center on the shelf, then mount the TV on top of the RC-64 or use a wall mount above it.  The RC-64 is designed to hold the weight of a TV.


    Hey, Thanks! But the TV Wall will look like this. It is specially designed to look like this ;) it is asymmetrical.

  11. Hey guys!

    Tomorrow i will be purchasing a RC 64 (yay finally found one in good condition and price over here)

    Now I have a question where it would make the most sense to put it on this TV Wall: http://www.hardeck.de/out/pictures/master/product/1/15100005_n.jpg

    (The picture Shows just a sample not the actual Wall in the apartment of course. The wall in my apartment is completly open to the left side but to the right side there is a wall (approx 3feet next to the panel)

    The front speakers are next to the end of the wall of course. I don't know if the mounted Panel will hold the center and the TV so I am thinking to put the center below the Panel where the TV is on the ground(angled to the listening Position) or on the Lowboard next! to the tv.

    If I put the center on the Lowboard it would be really in the "center" of the whole TV Wall but not beneath the TV. What do you guys think about this?

  12. Hey Guys,


    in my new appartment i am not able to put a center speaker directly beneath / infront of the TV:

    It is possible to put it on the ground though and angle it to the listening position.

    Another possible solution is to put the center on a lowboard NEXT to the TV (it would be about 50cm above the ground and around 50 cm next to the TV)


    What do you think about this? Would it be a big problem putting the center on the ground?



  13. It looks like the RC 62 and RC 62 MK 2 are now not available anymore.

    My dealer offered me the RP 440 C or the RP 250 C. In conjunction with the RF-62 do you think this works? I don't have a very good AV - Receiver and i don't know if it can handle the RP 440 C. It is the Onkyo TX-SR508.


    by the data sheet it states at power output at 6 Ohm it has 130 W for the Center. For dynamic power 100 W at 8 Ohm.

  14. Hey Guys,


    i need some help here. As you know the MK 1 RF 62 are pretty old by the manufacturing date and i am wondering which center i should get now. Do you think i should go for the RC 62? It is the only speaker i can find in my country to buy new. Or is it better to pick a completly different center from a different series like the RP 440 C? Unluckily i have no way to check them out live, hehe.




    This would be a good setup because this suggests that i could mount the bookshelve speakers to the wall behind me.


    I thought you were talking about in that far upper left corner to the left of the window on top, that's why I mentioned the symmetry issue.


    sorry, but i don't understand?

    I just mean that the last picture you posted would be a good way to mount bookshelve speakers behind the back of the listening positions in my room. Maybe i'm completly misunderstanding what you mean here, sorry :D


    When you mentioned mounting it on the wall before, you said something that made me think you were planning to put it in the wall to the left of the window on the top wall in the diagram. Seems like somebody else mentioned that as well but I'd have to go through everything. If you did this, the room would not be symmetrical.


    Yeah it is not symmetrical for the "living room area" i only could mount the speakers next to the window on the left wall in the picture. not on top one. On the top half there is our "eating area". It is a combined room.
