  1. In France you can buy them (occasionally) new for 300€, normally 450€ - so 300$ seems OK.
  2. It is absolutely beautiful. There is no need to change IMO, but an idea 😈 would be to give every wire its own hole (except the diodes if you decide keep them after the remarks above) that way all the wires exit perpendicular from their source like the capacitors But again, it is absolutely beautiful. Best regards ... jef

    Klipsch RP5000F

    Experiment with different (higher) cross-over frequencies.
  4. Exact the info I needed, thanks !!!
  5. Hello, I'm looking at a set of second hand Palladium P-17B's, these speakers have a mid range horn with a passband of (500Hz) 600hz - 3.4kHz This is even lower than the midrange horn of a Heresy (850Hz - 5000Hz) Is the Palladium midrange sound comparable to the Heresy ? Thanks ... Jef
  6. In that case, get rid of the expensive ones and allow your ear and associated psycho acoustics to get used to the speakers you own.
  7. Belgium But that price is representative for a large part of Europe.

  9. Premium here is $7.37 per American Gallon (3.785 liters)
  10. Hello, Are you sure? All my sources connected to Netflix allow to select a stereo stream in the Netlix app itself, you can find it where the different languages are available. Hope this helps.
  11. @Chris A Chris, if I read your graph correctly you measured with a sound volume of 100dB but the distance is not mentioned. As the sensitivity of the Jubilee is around 105db it is reasonable to assume your input power was around 1 Watt maybe a little more. If one is to inject a sine wave of 12Vrms to measure the THD over the frequency range of the R-51M speaker this corresponds to an input power between 18 and 36 Watts (8 to 4 ohm) I'm quite sure that poor tweeter will have a short life in the course of that test. 🙂
  12. Behind a screen the up firing Atmos will definitely not work. Hard to imagine the large RP-8060FA's inside a wall, but it would remove nulls from reflected waves.
  13. You have an excellent starting base already. The RP-8060FA and the RP-280FA are essentially the same speaker, RP-8060FA being the newer model. I would put the RP-8060FA's at the front with the Atmos section connected (assuming you have a flat ceiling). Depending on the size of the room I would put the RP-280FA's as Side Surround's with the Atmos connected and 'Klipsch 5.25 ??) as Surround Back. You will have to buy a Center speaker (RP- 504C, RP-404C, RP-600C and RP-500C all will do) RP-504 being the largest (I use a RP-404C with my RP-8060FA's). A subwoofer (or 2 or more, depending on budget and room) The RP-140SA can stay in the box. Both Receivers are excellent. Listen to this set-up first and then decide what you would want to change. The Klipsch 5.25 are the most questionable in this configuration but as Surround Rear has limited musical content I would start with that. There are different opinions on the ATMOS solution (ceiling mounted versus ceiling bounced), some prefer the bounced ATMOS but this depends heavily on the ceiling characteristics. Anyway I would start with the excellent speakers you already have and work from there. A variation would be to swap the Side Surround speakers with the Rear Surrounds. If the Klipsch 5.25 sound too different RP-600M's would blend in well.
  14. I agree, his name can easily be read as Feed Dork
  15. Informative review of the Heresy IV: https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/klipsch-heresy-iv Learned some new tidbits and want one now on top of it 😊
