    Moving back to Klipsch Speakers

    My Denon 4200 is running 4 RS-3's - that's about it. That being said, it's probably kicking out somewhere between 75-95 WPC. It's more than enough for the rear. That being said, unless you get an amp that can match at 90 WPC or better, with that setup - I probably wouldn't worry about it too much. Are you mainly going for a compacted HT setup?

    Accesories4less blames Klipschorns

    OP, in the future - do not utilize A4L's support. These are units refurbished by the manufacturer and carry manufacturer warranties and support. You should (in the future, if there is another purchase) contact Yamaha. They will handle the issue. I am speaking from experience. A4L is a third party, and once the transaction is complete, you should take up issues with the manufacturer.

    RSW-12 - $200 MI

    Not sure if anyone else can view these, but this just popped up on the Facebook Marketplace in Portage, MI. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/371684903614663

    RF-7 II at Fry's for $299

    I'm almost entirely serious. haha

    RF-7 II at Fry's for $299

    Get a second pair for me. I'll figure out shipping later. lol
  6. The History Kid


    To add to wuzzzer's comment, 5.1's side surround schematic generally calls for WDST or other multi-pole speaker configurations, meaning that you'd be better off getting a speaker designed for surround duty rather than a monitor. You want a broad dispersion of sound on the sides.

    Chorus II Drivers

    Thanks. Can anyone else here echo this? If they were mine, I'd have no problems with this, but since they're a friend's I'd like to be sure.
  8. The History Kid

    WTF is this????

    Exactly what it says...KSP-400s.

    Chorus II Drivers

    An update reveals that it is the passive radiators. Anyone got any clues for that? I called Klipsch today, and got the same answer as with the actives. They said they were going to email me, but never did.

    Chorus II Drivers

    The guy doesn't have the old woofers anymore, so the kits won't work. Bob didn't have a bead on any either. Talking to Jim about a pair of them now.

    Chorus II Drivers

    Updated, see below... Alright folks... I have tried Klipsch and a few other places and have come up empty handed. I am in the need of a pair of Chorus II woofers. Klipsch doesn't stock them anymore, and I can't seem to find a replacement. Anyone got any tips on where I can track down replacements? Surely there has to be something out there.

    Nintendo - Switch 32GB Console - Neon Red/Neon Blue Joy-Con

    That's the going rate for them, and I wouldn't buy one used. The Switch is the best option for family friendly content - as it's Nintendo's primary demographic. It's also good if you want to have a good solid portable gaming device. Beats the hell out of a phone. I've toyed with getting one, but I barely have enough time to use my Playstations these days.

    Monster MPA 5150 Brand New !

    This has to be satire. Although a poor attempt at one. You can literally buy new from a manufacturer for just over a quarter of the price the same power. For half the price, triple the power.

    Klipsch RS7s, RC7, RF7s and RSW15

    Sure are an awful lot of California 7's showing up lately...
