  1. I have a very similar room layout including all the toys My layout mirrors option 2 but I'm using a set of RP-150Ms as the surrounds instead of dipoles. I try to hog the sweet spot most of the time but others concerns are right, people sitting close to those speakers get a very uneven experience. If you have Audessy, MCACC, or equivalent make sure you run it to balance it out. Also, You may want to add a rug and some curtains to diffuse some of the sound.
  2. Very much so, I love these speakers. I have not disabled the sub, just dialed the gain back a bit so it isn't so boomy at night. It is a shared family room 23'L x 11'W x 7'H where the main seating area is 8.5'L x 11'W x 7'H. AVR is VSX-LX301 The 250Fs are about a foot from the wall toed in a bit.
  3. So, I messed around with the EQ a bit. Looks like when I used the microphone to auto-configure the system with MCACC it removed all the bass response from the towers. I disabled it completely and it's a world of difference. I'm going to a little more testing with setting the fronts back and forth from Small/Large, Crossovers between 50 and 80 and Double Bass.
  4. Hi Everyone, I have a pair of RP-140SA sitting on top of my RP-250F speakers. The ceilings are low in my room, 7 feet, would it be better to wall mount them as height channels? There is not much immersion or noticeable sound coming when sitting on the sofa 8 feet away. Would this still give the same effect for Dolby Atmos content? Thanks, Drew
  5. Yup, I tried running them both has Large and Small.
  6. My current configuration consists of a 5.1.2 setup. Kind of a newbie question but my front towers do not get much bass when listing to music or watching movies. Pretty much all bass goes to the LFE channel. However, I would like to disable the sub sometimes. Mostly for late night viewing. I tried setting my crossover to 50hz and 80hz. I also tried enabling double bass. It may be a content issue, if I try a "bass test" video on YouTube the towers have noticeable woofer movement and air pressure from the ports. If I am listing to music or a movie they do not produce much bass.

  7. I have an extra pair of Klipsh RP-140SA Elevation speakers. I was wondering if they can be re-purposed as a pair of bookshelf speakers. The SVS Prime Elevation speakers can be rotated to become L/R speakers. Do the Klipsch have enough frequency support to be used for music and 2 channel TV audio?
  8. Yup, it didn't work. Just wanted to make sure that I'm not chasing the wrong thing. Thanks!
  9. I'm having a hard time finding a Jensen TA-R1 online. Would the isolator purchased do the same thing? https://www.amazon.com/Transformer-Eliminator-Blue-Jeans-Cable/dp/B00GG1PK5W
  10. Are there any suggestions on what dummy plug to get, any links would be helpful thanks!
  11. Does the dummy plug go right into the wall outlet? Is this just for a test? Is there risk of the sub getting fried?
  12. Hi Everyone, I also have a low-frequency hum coming from my subwoofer. It increases as I turn up the gain as well. I tried a bunch of different things but can't seem to get rid of it. The Hum happens no matter what I do. The only time it is not an issue is when the cable is not plugged into the LFE input. I thought it may be a ground loop issue but can't seem to get rid of it. My Audio Setup: Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301 -> Klipsch 5.1.2 | RP-250F | RP-250C | RP-150M | RP-140SA | R-112SW No Hum - Powered off, other components on No Hum - LFE Remove Cable and power on Hum - LFE Cable inserted Hum - LFE Cable rerouted so it is not near any other power cables or signal cables. Hum - Changed LFE Cable Hum - Added in a Blue Jeans Subwoofer Isolation Transformer between Sub and AVR Hum - Changed power cable Hum - Plugged Sub directly into the wall outlet Hum - Plugged Sub into power conditioner with other components Hum - Removed all HDMI and Optical Inputs from the AVR Hum - Changed Subwoofer Plate Amp (RMA from Klipsch)
  13. I just received the new plate amp and installed it. After some basic testing, the cutting out does not occur anymore. Guess it was a defective amp. A+ to Klipsch Support for sending this out so quickly.
  14. Sounds good to me. Should I put the gain all the way up then run MCACC on my AVR?
  15. +0.0dB, I contacted the support and they walked me through a couple of steps. They are sending a replacement amp for the unit. Seems to be a common thread on this forum. I wonder if I just got one from a bad lot.
  16. I have the gain about half way and it still cuts out. I can lower it a bit. My seating area is 12x14 the highs and midbass come through clear and the bass is deep enough when the sub is working properly. Is the gain still too high? Here is my 5.1.2 setup : LR - RP-250F LRA - RP-140SA C - RP-250C SLR - RP-150M SW - R-112SW AVR - Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301 Source - Oppo UDP-203
  17. I just started a post too. I am experiencing the same thing. I tried wrapping the power plug with a little electric tape so the fit is snug, but it didn't work. It only during heavy bass scenes of a movie. It works fine for me until it starts to get really loud.
  18. Hi Everyone, I have an R-112SW hooked up to my AVR using LFE. When watching regular scenes with little bass the sub performs as normal. When it gets too intense or very deep bass it cuts out. If I unplug it for 15 seconds or so and plug it back in it powers back up and works fine until another scene. Has anyone experienced this before? Any suggestions. I purchased the subwoofer February of 2017. I am not sure if it is still under warranty. Thanks, Drewski
  19. Cool, thanks. It will be the only speaker. My den has my 5.1.2 Reference Premier setup which will take care of the main movie watching experience. Just wanted to get a better sound than the stock tv speakers for the extra tv.
  20. Hi Everyone, I purchased The Three a while back and the thing is killer for music. I was wondering if I can use this successfully as a Soundbar or I should opt for an RSB-3? It is a smallish room, 7 x 10. My television has a 3.5mm auxiliary output for external speakers. If it is a good idea, should I just use a 3.5mm cable from aux to aux or use a spliter cable that goes from 3.5mm to RCA? Thanks, Drewski
  21. Great stuff, I'll give that a shot. They sound awesome at 80hz hopefully this will round out the bass a little more. The R-112SW kicks hard even at half volume.
  22. Hey All, Finally got my Klipsch 5.1.2 HT ready to roll. I purchased the following and loving it so far. Klipsch RP-250F Fronts Klipsch RP-250C Center Klipsch RP-150M Surround Klipsch RP-140SA Atmos Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301 I was wondering what the optimal crossover point. I have everything set to 80hz right now. I don't feel much movement from the 5.25" drivers. Is that normal? Does anyone suggest a better crossover for these speakers? Thanks Drew
  23. Hi All, I wanted to get your advice on configuring our den/family room. This will be a shared room for the adults and toddler. The layout of the room is a large rectangle 23'L x 11'W x 7'H. This area will be split into a home theater area and play area. The main seating area is 8.5' X 11'. I am looking at the following 5.1 or 5.1.2 setup to start. I would like to upgrade to a 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 down the line if possible. Power 1 x Pioneer Elite SC-LX701 Speakers 2 x Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-250F 1 x Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-140SA 1 x Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-450CA 1 x Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-160M 1 x Klipsch Reference R-112SW OR 3 x Klipsch Gallery G-28 Flat Panel Speaker (or Designer On-Wall from CES 2017) 2 x Klipsch Gallery G-16 Flat Panel Speaker (or Designer On-Wall from CES 2017) 1 x Klipsch Reference R-110SW Questions: Which option is best for a room like this? Are these good setups for movies, music, and games? Any safety concerns with a toddler. Thanks Drew
