Hi guys. I'm building a new home theater system which will be used primarily for watching movies & football games. I was gifted the following equipment line-up except for the R-5800s which I recently purchased: 2X Klipsch KG5.5 Floorstanding Speakers 2X Klipsch R-5800-W II in-wall Speakers Klipsch KV2 Center Channel Speaker Klipsch SW10-II Subwoofer Harmon Kardon AVR65 Receiver My question is whether or not the Harmon Kardon AVR65 is an adequate receiver for me gear? If not, would you guys recommend another receiver with good performance, clarity, and reasonable price? I'd really like to keep my new receiver cost below $350 if possible. Thanks in advance for your help. Sincerely, Charles Erwin Madison, AL
I decided to purchase a set of Klipsch R-5502-W II in-wall speakers to flank my new 65" Samsung LED TV for the front speakers but am still not sure about what to do in the back. I'm still thinking about putting the KGs in the back just because I already own them and hate to replace them with another set of speakers when the KGs would would otherwise just be collecting dust in the closet. Given that, is there anything special I need to do to "tone down" those big powerful rear speakers so they won't overwhelm the front speakers? Again, do I need any band pass filters? And finally, do you guys recommend rear wall mount or ceiling mount? Side mount is not an option for me. Thanks, Charles
I am not an audiophile but I do appreciate good sound and was blessed to inheret some nice audio equipment from which I hope to build a quality home theatre system primarily for movies & video. Here's a list of my equipment: 2X Klipsch KG5.5 Floorstanding Speakers Klipsch KV2 Center Channel Speaker Klipsch SW10-II Subwoofer Harmon Kardon AVR65 Receiver The way my room is set up makes the large KG5.5 speakers placement more practical in the back of the room behind the speaker as rear channel speakers. I guess my first question is whether this is an aceptable arrangement for these particular speakers. If yes, can you guys recommend a complementary Klipsch product for the front and rear speakers with the caveat that I need something small enough to hang from a side wall or the ceiling. And while I'm at it, can you recommend a good speaker bracket/clip/hanger for ceiling or side wall mount? Finally, if locating these big KGs in the back of the room is an audio faux pas, I'll try to find a home for them in the front of the room but still need a recomendation for the rear speakers. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help. Sincerely, Charles Madison, AL PS - Do you guys recommend using bandpass filters for the perimeter speakers when a subwoofer is part of the home audio system? If yes, where would I purchase such an animal?
