  1. I’ve had this same issue with Audyssey. Make sure dynamic eq/volume is off. Also, Running Audyssey Flat instead of reference will help some. The $20 editor app will allow you to adjust the curve. I was able to recover most of my low end with the above, however it still rolls off below 25hz or so. This works for music but takes some of the fun out of movie watching. I’m going to experiment a little and see if stuffing the ports (2 R-115sw) while running Audyssey won’t trick it into not rolling off.
  2. I would pick a new place ha ha. I wouldn't say it’s bad. And at the end of the day, it probably doesn’t even matter when they’re not side by side. Comparing the two right next to each other, the 440 was a bit “thinner” sounding than I expected. This was also in a large showroom with probably 10-12’ from the speaker and listening position.
  3. I never gave much thought/listen to the 250c, but I did a bit of in-store listening (multiple trips) between the 440 & 450c. The 450c is for sure worth the extra $$ and is the only one you should be considering.
  4. If you have an 11.2 channel receiver then you should just connect to the back height channels on that.
  5. The delay is to let the upstream equipment settle before powering up amps. Turning on amps immediately may lead to the thumps & pops associated with turning on amps. I’d guess it’s the same reason AVRs delay their amps switching on. At least it was that way in the car audio world. You're likely correct the delay is based based on sensing power rather than the switch itself.
  6. I would venture a guess it’s probably the sound bar if the trouble is consistent with multiple sources. Yes you will need amplification and processing. A receiver will do both. You will need to purchase speaker wire. If it’s all going to be kept under the tv, you might be able to talk your dealer into throwing in some cheap stuff. No no speakers in the back is no problem. Hope this helps.
  7. What kind of guidance are you looking for?
  8. Can you pull a woofer and test it directly? My first thought is maybe nice or something made nests in them. Don’t know if that’s an issue in your basement or not, but I’ve seen it before.
  9. Yeah I’m kind of ocd with things like this too. Theres a hole routed in the face, the tweeter bolts into the hole, then the rubber “horn” is held in with aligning tabs and 2 sided tape. I’d have to unbolt the tweeter, but then I’d tear up the screw holes realigning it. I’ll work on getting a picture.
  10. I bought an RP-450c sometime around Christmas timeframe. I recently had been running it without the grill. I’ve noticed that the tweeter horn (the rubber part) is cocked a degree or two. The Klipsch logo above it is clocked maybe another half degree further. I pulled the rubber horn piece and the tweeter itself is cocked in the hole. This may be a bit nit picky, but it’s noticeable from the couch and these aren’t exactly the cheapest of speakers. I wouldn’t necessarily expect this to be covered under warranty, but has anyone had similar build issues and had them addressed by Klipsch (or not)? Thanks!
  11. When will the 2018 Reference Premieres be released? I have some pieces left to purchase to complete my set and I don’t want to miss them (and my local dealer usually has awesome close out deals :D). Sorry if I missed it somewhere.
  12. If you decide you’re willing to ship, let me know. Thank you.
  13. How does one tell if they have wood or vinyl veneer, or is it obvious? My local dealer has also closed out the FAs. I just got a pair for less than a pair of 280s and now they are no longer on their website.
