Forum Ultra Veteran (5/9)
As wuzzzer stated, the RP line is the actual successor to the original Reference series. The current Reference (R) series is the successor to the Icon/Synergy. The RP is therefore the better line. As for your RP-8000F vs. RP-280F comparison, the RP-8000F is the newer of the two, and will likely incorporate whatever new technology is the latest with the line.

Sale is pending.
I'm not an Atmos expert, but with my limited understanding of Atmos, you could in theory A: use them as object height speakers at the front or rear (this is how I use my RB-5's), B: if you have vaulted ceilings you can aim them upwards since the stands and pedestals are adjustable, or C : Ceiling mount angled downward from above as object heights. The plates are very sturdy and should support ceiling mount. See below for the mount configuration.
April showers bump. They lived through the weather this last week and a half. lol
Power handling of speakers and receiver output question
The History Kid replied to Bmvanthiel's topic in General Klipsch InfoThis seems like a good time to also remind people and learn that there is a difference between power and clean power. One of the biggest reasons I tried so hard to get away from AVR's was that so few of them delivered good clean power without bleeding into the pre/pro pricepoint - and the ones that did meet the requirement tended to slack in other ways. As for your specific situation, Peter brings up a good point, and it ties in with what I mentioned about 2 channels delivering 110WPC rather than all 7. You're much better off to drive music into 2 channels than 7 in an AVR configuration if you plan on playing at high levels for long periods of time. It can help reduce the risk of those issues exponentially.
Power handling of speakers and receiver output question
The History Kid replied to Bmvanthiel's topic in General Klipsch InfoThe maximum output of that AVR with all channels driven is 57WPC, not 110. It is capable of delivering 110WPC into 2 channels. It's maximum power output is 400W total, so it's WPC will not exceed the value of 400W. Otherwise, like others have said, you will be hard pressed to damage your speakers with that configuration.
Innovative new products for us two channel folks
The History Kid replied to roninklipsch's topic in 2-Channel Home Audio$420 for the CBD treatment, eh? 😏
New Klipsch subs announced

[Sold] Parasound zTuner - $30
The History Kid replied to The History Kid's topic in Garage SaleAnother bump. Make an offer. It needs a new home.
Hooking up KG2's to 2.0 channel
The History Kid replied to theJason82's topic in 2-Channel Home AudioThe 2.2's I'd run as Speaker A. 2.1's to Speaker B. For the passive sub, you'll run the Speaker A (or B ) from the receiver to the sub input. Then from the sub output, you'll run it to the speakers. Don't double up on the receiver, that isn't how its designed to work.
[Sold] RSX-5's for Sale
The History Kid posted a topic in Garage SaleI held onto these forever, because they're such an awesome speaker, but an offer to upgrade presented itself. Thus, it's time to part ways. These speakers held their own against many other contenders over the years. They've been moved around from computer systems to finally resting in a bedroom. I'm the second owner, but while they've been in my care they've been well cared for. Their only flaw right now is dust! I'm in the process of cleaning the grilles on them, so those are not in the picture below. Drivers are nice and clear, stands are in good shape, binding posts are clean. These speakers are ready to rock someone's world. The satellite speaker that doesn't know it's a satellite speaker is up for $100 + shipping. These don't come around super often anymore (the 5's at least).
The History Kid replied to FredD4's topic in General Klipsch InfoThe "minimum input" figure is something I've never understood - especially with Klipsch speakers. The mainstay of Klipsch speakers (or one of them anyway) has always been their power efficiency. Plenty of us power systems with as little as 1 watt. Let alone 120.
