  1. Years ago i owned RP 160m and the big center channel, forgot the name, i think it was RP 450c I loved that setup, i had a subwoofer. but like this hobby is i sold them to look to see if i can upgrade. after several tries nothing has come close to them, for years, so im back. home theater movies only. but i know if i spend this kind of money music will sound great. im looking to buy that setup again unless they have been upgraded for similar money. any ideas
  2. ok. i changed my mind about these stands though. i guess i wanted to match the cherry 160s. any recommendation for stands half the price? i dont feel good about paying $100 for stands just because they are in cherry.
  3. hmm i thought 24 might be too short. was looking at something in the 30 or 31 height. maybe i should go for the 24s then
  4. well i found these two stands cant decide. one is 24 and the other 36 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00133VWRS/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AHF4SYKP09WBH https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AX85CW/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AHF4SYKP09WBH
  5. i found a couple id like from amazon. one is 18 and the other is 24. is 18 too low? not sure if its better to have tweeter slightly lower or slightly higher than ear level.
  6. any place in los angeles where i can audition the klipsch r7 ii and r7 iiis? best buy and frys electronics doesnt have them for demo
  7. i love these 280s and keep reading about r7s being better? how much better can they be. i love the tweeter on these speakers. i guess i like bright speakers. but these arent fatiguing. i listen to a lot of vocal trance and these are perfect for that music do the r7 iis have the same tweeter design? the rubber etc. to tame the harshness? i want more of the same sound of the 280s, if that makes sense. i just want more
  8. anyone know where i can get this cheaper than the amazon $500 price? https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-R-112SW-Powered-Subwoofer-Wireless/dp/B072K6F9X1/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
  9. just found it at newegg for $549 but it includes a wireless kit https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2GA5UT5225&ignorebbr=1 is this the exact same subwoofer? regarding the warranty it says this Warranty Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years Limited Warranty period (labor): 2 years 2 years only? add $64.99 for 3 year warranty $94.99 for 4 years $50.78 tax for me. suddenly, this is not a good deal
  10. woah thats a nice looking sub, wrap or not. cant find it anywhere else but amazon
  11. i was wondering if the treble on the r14s is harsh. i have listened to the rp160s and the treble seemed just right. i like bright speakers but ive read klipsch speakers other than the reference premiere are extremely bright, too bright.
  12. with coupon code at frys electronics i can get a pair of the r-14m for $89 wondering if these are too bright for desktop speakers, or dont have enough bass. will use for streaming music and youtube, nothing more. so dont want a sub
  13. i just want to know there is nothing wrong with the right speaker. i think the bed in front of right speaker might be the problem. though its only a few feet in front of the speaker when i got home from work, first thing i did i toed in both speakers directly towards the mlp. prior to that both speakers were toed in just slightly, and maybe the left speaker perhaps a couple cms more towards the mlp. i watched saving private ryan (a requirement on 4th of july weekend) and raised channel level on right speaker 1 db. that sort of worked. but not convinced yet because of how audio is designed for movies. for instance, the final major battle i did hear more out of the right speaker, but all the action, where theyre shooting etc. seems to be designed for the right speaker. if you watch that scene youd understand. after the movie i listened to the tuner/radio in direct mode. i raised the test tone of the right speaker 1db and that sort of fixed the problem, but i only listened to one song. i was tired at that point. one thing that i am not sure about. on my denon x3300 there are two ways to raise speaker volume. 1. pressing option button i can use channel level 2. pressing settings button i can go to speakers settings and use the test tone do i need to raise both the same increments or are they independent of each other depending on the source? when i listened to the radio i only had the 2nd option and that one pretty much worked, though i will experiment more tomorrow. and i will definitely switch the speakers, that will probably tell me if the room and positioning and bed are the problem. one last thing, shoot, not sure if i have option 1 and 2 reversed when i listened to the radio in direct mode. cant remember hehehe
