  1. 1977 Belles ONLY $6500

    Why are you dissing our dissing of your sell?
  2. 1977 Belles ONLY $6500

    I spot a dinged corner. Clearly not show room condition. I'll give him $475...
  3. Crossovers are not all made equal - so while I don't know the technical details of them, I know enough that the solid answer is no. You could seriously damage your speakers, your amp, or both. Do not do this.
  4. damsel in distress. can i mix reference lines?

    My brother just sold someone on a 676 - they seem to like it okay. I've seen it mentioned in a positive light in a few other AV groups too.
  5. The klipsch RF-10

    Neither of those AVRs probably put out anything close to that with all channels driven. So overpowering isn't really going to be an issue.
  6. Klipsch RF-63’s cherry $399 Syracuse, NY

    Seems to be the problem. Getting them somewhere. I've been talking with Marty for the last few days, and the only kink in the deal is transport.
  7. damsel in distress. can i mix reference lines?

    1. What is the size of the room? 2. Are you primarily looking at movies, or music? 3. What kind of features are you interested in? Will you eventually want Atmos? Do you need 4K support? 4. What is your budget?
  8. RSW-10 BK - $350 (Quad Cities, IA)

    It really is. I'm thinking if I still have it in the spring time, it's not meant to go anywhere. I've put it up against several different subs and picked it out each time (KSW-12, 15, Polk DSW660 (12"), 440 (8"), and a Yamaha sub (2x8")). You just can't beat the RSW's when it comes to Klipsch.
  9. RSW-10 BK - $350 (Quad Cities, IA)

    Sub still available, folks.
  10. Just joined. Sayin hi. HI!

    I am happy to say that all of the speakers I have with passives are not crunched. Seeing those makes me sad.
  11. Newbie Setup Questions

    Welcome to the forum. That is a great deal on the RF-7's. I would advise you get matching speakers though. You want nothing less than the RC-62 for those monsters, and you can have them for fairly cheap from Fry's right now. If you can't land one, I'd look at the RP-450C or RC-64. You will not be satisfied with the RP-250C with the RF-7's. The R-14S is not timbre matched with the RF-7's, and I can't imagine they'd work well with them either. I'd examine the used pair of RS-41's or 42's on the forum here, or go with the RP-250S. As for the sub - yes, you are correct...go for the 115SW. It will walk all over that BIC sub. Lastly the AVR. The Sony ES is a fantastic receiver, but you will probably get better bang for your dollar from the Denon. There's nothing wrong with Sony ES products, but in most situations with Klipsch speakers you might find better value elsewhere.
  12. Just joined. Sayin hi. HI!

    Yeah, that's me with one of my systems. My 9.1 is in my bedroom. haha Oh, very comfy. You've never known comfort until you sleep on an MDF board with acoustic foam.
  13. Just joined. Sayin hi. HI!

    Some of us sleep on or in our Klipsch, and I should know... Welcome to the madness, op!
  14. AV Receiver for RP-280F 5.1 setup?

    That receiver would be fine, but you could get it for less... $650... https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx3400h/denon-avr-x3400h-7.2-ch-x-105-watts-networking-a/v-receiver-w/heos/1.html There's also the one year older model a step up for $700 https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx4300h/denon-avr-x4300h-9.2-ch-x-125-watts-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html And the flagship from last year for $1200 https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx6300h/denon-avr-x6300h-11.2-ch-x-140-watts-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html Also the 4100 for $500 https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx4100w/denon-avr-x4100w-7.2-ch-x-125-watts-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html If you're looking at just 5.2 or 7.2, I'd recommend the 4100.
  15. Klipsch RF-63’s cherry $399 Syracuse, NY

    It's sadly a time / money thing, or else I would. If I wasn't moving - if I didn't have immediate application for them - if I didn't need to have them to kick something else out to cover for them - I would.
