  1. Having my basement finished and bought GenieClips isolators for the ceilings and walls in my theater room. I’m using 5/8” drywall on the ceiling so the total drop will be 2 7/16” with the clip, furring strip and drywall. I have ME-800-C enclosures for my CDT-5800s and curious if anyone else has installed enclosures and speakers with a similar setup. I can’t mount the enclosures directly to the joist above because even with the doglegs maxed out they are only 1 3/4” of depth for mounting. I also would prefer to have the speakers sit all the way into the enclosure for maximum noise control. My plan is to install 2x4 mounting blocks on the joist and the mount the ME-800s to it with a drop depth of 1 15/16”. The ME-800s have a speaker opening with a 1/2” lip and the thickness of the speaker ring is about 1/16” while the enclosure mounting tabs are about 1/32”. I figured this would put me 1/32” shy of 2 7/16”, which would give me a slight recess and put the magnetic speaker cover slightly extending beyond the ceiling height. Does my math sound right and should I be accounting for something else?
  2. Thanks for the replies. I was afraid my sitting position is not optimal. Unfortunately, I can't move it because there are a series of support columns in my basement which prevent me from moving my couch back. I guess I'll have to move the speaker farther down the wall towards the corners because I have about 10 more feet to play with. Only down side is the wiring I bought will be obsolete! lol
  3. I'm pretty new to the audiophile scene. Is this a real thing? http://www.klipsch.com/blog/how-and-why-to-break-in-your-new-speakers I've been listening all day and they sound better now than when I posted my question. I can still hear more bass when I stand up, but it's a bit muddy and overpowering.
  4. New Klipsch client here and first "hi-fi" system in about 30 years. I have a basement room that is 24W x 21.5D x 8H. It is concrete slab floor. My R-28F's are seven feet away and about seven feet apart, right now. I've moved them wider apart, closer, next to the wall, away from the wall and still having a problem with bass. I know they aren't sub replacements. I have an SB16 on the list for future purchase when the wife is away. However, these things are producing some nice bass just not delivering them to me in the right spot. Sitting down in the listening positioning, there is very little bass. When I stand about half way all the way through to full stand it sounds INCREDIBLE. I can't figure this out. My couch is standard height, even a little higher than most actually. If I move further away it's still the same effect. I've toed the speakers in and out with no change in bass.
