  1. rc-62ii is a nice center, even speaker snobs love them, very clear, dialogue is very intelligible. I think it would work well enough myself. It's a little brighter than the RP series which should work with the 15M just fine.
  2. RP-500SA is most popular. As mentioned above, if you're tight on space, maybe consider the 402S or 502S, those hug the wall much better. Also consider in-walls, like pro-180-rpw, or 160's. 402S / 502S are pretty comfortable and look good in that situation tho.
  3. It's normal, unfortunately. At first it was all marked as B-stock. Now I'm seeing seams in A-stock. What sucks is that you can get two A-stock speakers and one will have seams and the other does not. It did not shrink, you typically cannot feel the seam. I think it's a matter of what light it is in, sometimes it's not visible. I upload a ton of these to ebay and see them all the time, typically I have to get it in the right light then point it out with my finger.
  4. if using as downfiring elevation I'd use the surround setting. Upfiring Atmos speakers have a proprietary response curve that aids in the psychoacoustic effect, certain frequencies are more localize-able than others so Dolby made a response curve that manufacturers have to adhere by to pull it off, that's what the atmos setting is for.
  5. 504C will be a halfway significant upgrade in midbass respose in my opinion. Wouldn't worry about the rear ports, they work fine, just don't have them flat up against a wall.
  6. No updates planned as far as I am aware. Sales are very strong and they are still pretty new, there is bigger fish to fry.
  7. I've measured them inside, even hauled them out on the porch and measured them outside as to try to minimize reflections. I have not believed there to be a massive 7 db suckout as mentioned, thinking maybe he has some weird angles. However I measured this awhile ago and unfortunately I cut off everything to the left but now that I look back, yeah it's kind of headed in that direction isn't it.
  8. technically the most correct solution is direct radiating / monopole speakers for Atmos. Dispersed surrounds work fine though, especially on the sides. There was a big pushback when Atmos was first released and they finally relented and said it was ok. Technically speaking though, ideally it's monopoles at the same height as the mains. Atmos specifications are easily Google-able, I'd try to read up on the guides from Dolby.
  9. Lots of people do this, the 600M's are good speakers. Of course they won't have the extension or volume of the RP-8000F's but they are still very nice and very popular for this purpose with similar given parameters.
  10. I'd only get the 4 unless you wanted the last set of 3's that Travis mentioned, super cool, everybody at the plant signed them. Last pair of cornwall 3's to roll off the line.
  11. They're almost identical. Amps are even interchangeable. The new amp supposedly has a resistor modification to help with longevity plus the new finish looks significantly better so I'd get the SPL-150 myself but between tariffs and the 115's being blown out, it's probably a big price hike.
  12. I guess I never drank the Steve G. Kool-Aid. Just not very familiar with him, not really a follower. Klipsch was happy that he did a review recently so I watched it... was surprised to hear him act like horn speakers in general were always non-fatiguing as if it were an inherent trait. I've heard some that could make your ears bleed so yeah just kind of surprised.
  13. even if I did go, I'm 5 hours from Lexington. would be cheaper to just arrange a truck pickup and ship it on a pallet.
  14. I know where a set of 70th anniversary K-horns are in West Hartford CT. It's Aaron B,, he's probably here on the forum. I was trying to help him out by throwing them on eBay but I'm sure he would prefer a more local in-person transaction with no shipping and to cut me out of the deal if possible.
  15. I recently got in a Sony 75" tv for use in that room. I still have my theater room for projector demos, I just didn't feel the need to duplicate. To be honest the core of my business has shifted more towards 2-channel. If somebody wanted a proper theater room demo it's only 5 miles down the road, I just don't have enough local customers to justify having two halfway hardcore theater rooms with a projector.
