  1. Hey all, So I am a hairs width away from ordering the in ceiling pro 180rpc http://www.klipsch.com/products/pro-180rpc-in-ceiling-speaker And in doing so I had only been looking at side profiles on where to install them in the ceiling not the top view, as you can see in the picture I attached the red circles are where I thought they we supposed to go. (The grey rectangle on the right is another couch). Now...riddle me this...if these new fangled in ceiling speakers don't have aim-able tweeters, should I be putting them where the suggested location is? I don't know how to tag Cory for these posts.....
  2. I may be exiled for saying this but has anyone seen/heard/tried these? http://www.inwallstore.com/Angled_Ceiling_Speakers_Kevlar_Titanium_Inwalltech_p/hd650_1a.htm
  3. Ok, I am going to start sniffing around and see what I can find...I am still unsure if I am going to go Atmos or not! Lol, but this THIS is a great idea and should work perfectly for my room!
  4. I just read through that entire AWESOME post, thank you so much! I will probably re read it a zillion times and takes notes BUT my big question is how the heck do you "measure" the room?
  5. Lol, not to sound obnoxious but there are only two reasons I can watch these...One is for my son, two is for the sound and three is nostalgia and four is to keep hope alive. (I'm also bad at counting) But seriously the sound is just incredible!! And until I get those sound panels if I turn it up too loud it kind of erases all of the surround effects.
  6. You think the R-15M would cut it? Sorry OP this is really saving my life over here lol
  7. Thats funny because I have RF-83, RC-64 and the 4 surrounds are RP 250s Now riddle me this batman, Those mounts you used for the bookshelves, do they have similar ones that would mount to the ceiling? Of course I will look after I send this...but in case you knew for sure....
  8. I just looked (on Klipsch) and I am not sure what the ref IVs are, BUT how much per pair are we talking (new)? $199? $249? Just curious. I wont be able to put the front heights in front of the main L and R but I can put them above and "outside" of them. Make sense? They would be above and maybe an inch or two completely on the outside of them. But I do like how you think, and I am really REALLY tempted to do this....
  9. Hey I have been thinking about going dolby atmos but my ceilings are kinda low 7.5' so its kinda hard to get the up firing speakers without putting them in really weird spots. And I do worry about in ceiling speakers that will sound too bright/hot/piercing. Could you please show me how you have the book shelf heights set up? Thanks so much!
  10. You kinda know my room by now, where are you thinking to place the bass traps? Are you meaning the corner bass traps? The two flat 4" panels for the back wall are considered bass traps because they are 4" thick. Ohohoh....what about the ceiling? I am curious to see how this turns out because if our dog barks in the basement, or I yell at the kids theres that strange metallic echo that happens. Don't know quite how to explain it. We dont have carpet on the floor, we did until the puppy came, but I just decided to get rid of it because we are constantly moving furniture or playing video games and blah blah blah. But I was thinking maybe a fun death star throw rug in the middle for fun. What say you oh Klipsch master??
  11. okay I ordered 2 of Acoustimac DMD-412 Acoustic Panels 48"X12"X2" and 2 of Acoustimac DMD-BT4000 Bass Traps 48"X24"X4" I hope that will help man.....
  12. Ok I think its time for sound panels because sometimes I am in love with this system and then I go back and listen again and think "hmmm...something is not quite right". I think that I need a panel that will go around that corner, is this something that I am going to have to make myself? I checked the three websites and I didn't see THIS type of panel. What if I did two 12"x48"x2"?
  13. Well well well...look who just has allllll the answers! I worried that the entire thing will be too bright and piercing no matter what. So when are these new bad boys gonna come out? C'mon man details, DETAILS! Pictures or it didn't happen....and I seee what you did there!!
  14. Heyyyyyyyyy you crazy kids, SO, the last thing I am looking to do before completing this upgrade is ATMOS. I am eyeballing this receiver http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/pionsclx701/pioneer-elite-sc-lx701-9.2-ch-x-135-watts-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html#!specifications But curious about two things: 1. My ceiling in the basement is 7.5' juuuuuust under the 8-9 foot recommendation by Dolby https://blog.dolby.com/2014/06/dolby-atmos-home-theaters-questions-answered/ and probably too long for the Klipsch Dolby Speakers http://www.klipsch.com/products/elevation-speakers?model=rp-140sa. Am I right in this assumption? 2. Would (4) Klipsch in ceiling speakers work instead? http://www.klipsch.com/products/reference-in-ceiling-speakers?model=cdt-5800-c-ii
  15. Well looks like I will be shopping at my favorite place on earth...Amazon Prime!! Hey how about the movie Flight with Denzel Washington...That plane crash must sound amazing!!
  16. Oh yeah, those stars are absolutely the best part, I think we have listened to that like 20 times already if not more. I have always loved that movie, the lightning storm sounded fantastic! Thats kinda funny and kinda irritating. I have literally given away like 700 DVDs because I either had them on blu ray, on iTunes, or haven't watched them like EVER or mayyybe once. And then I though "perfect now I will just get everything on iTunes and save the shelf space" but now I am realizing blu ray is better. Sigh. I think the very last piece of the puzzle is the receiver. I need to upgrade it. I had an very good opportunity to get a Marantz, but money ran out and it wasn't the lastest technology which also gave me pause. I do think I will start a thread on receivers, I have been starting to research but its just so much overwhelming information I need to sit, read and take notes like I would in a class! Okay okay...I ordered it already lol And holy COW I was sitting there thinking I dont hear anything coming from the left back...I though I was doing something wrong. You know, this is the only way I will watch those movies.....for the sound.... Man, give Unbreakable a try. Especially the last three chapters. It was really nice, I am biased though I love that movie. So then the question is: The receiver, it needs to be able to decode all of the different formats, is that right? Yeah we are soundPROOFing, its going to be expensive but we really need to do it. This has been a dream of mine for a very long time...to be able to watch and enjoy without worrying I am disturbing the rest of the household. I'm sure when my kids are older (they even do it now) they will want to watch a movie in the basement and I will be like "Turn that down dammit!!" Lol As far as Atmos is concerned it was getting excited about it but really need to decide what I am doing before we have the ceiling done starting November 6th. I dont even have the Xbox One connected to the receiver, I am going to have to do that now! I wonder if I really have it balanced THAT well. LOL its Scott.
  17. Man oh man its been a very big learning experience, THATS for sure. I am now actually paying attention to what audio tracks come with the blu ray or the itunes movies. It's a little embarrassing to admit how totally ignorant I was/am. I was happily only buying iTunes movies BUT now I know the most they can do is 5.1, so I have gone back to buying blu rays...not something I thought I would ever do. The thing to show off the the system is the very opening paramount logo of Transformers Dark of the Moon. and the highway chase scene. But that is strictly using the blu ray NOT iTunes. I am very tempted to now buy the iTunes (probably wait until the 5th one comes out and hopefully get a package deal) and really hear what the difference is. Also we watched War of the Worlds the other day (I love that movie) and it sounded NOICE! Especially the lightning storm at the beginning. And we are about to watch Batman vs. Superman. Another thing I would like to do (and hopefully will follow through) is buy the gravity blu ray and compare (and maybe list) speaker and time specific effects of that first 20 minutes. Just so when people are testing their system they know what to look and listen for. I know I keep thinking "I think this should be behind me" but it isnt. And really I don't know the difference between DTS-HD and 7.1. I don't know if something that is playing in 5.1 can be split into 7.1 by the receiver. We are going to have the ceiling made all one leveled height and soundproof it so I am also wondering if I shouldn't get ceiling speakers put in for Dolby Atmos before everything is all sealed up. I also don't know if my ceiling is too low for that. I also don't know if just the Klipsch Reference in ceiling speakers would be good for that. Or get those cool angled Atmos speakers BUT again the is the ceiling too low for that? Uggggggggg... See how much I don't know!
  18. Ok cool, maybe I will start another thread. Everyone is so GOOD at spending my money!
  19. So I have a great deal on a Marantz - 7002 receiver and a Marantz MM-9000 --5 -channel power amplifier. I have a feeling that will be a big upgrade from my Yamaha RX-V675 but I really need to hear you guys opinion. I would have no clue why I would need the amplifier....
  20. I just took stuff off of one wall and covered the holes in the wall. I am seriously considering getting soundproofing done, already have 3 quotes, because I really want to be able to enjoy all this without worrying about the neighbors. I bought it on iTunes.
