  1. You could always use wire track. Sometimes an eyesore but it can be painted Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  2. I have the 504c hooked up to a denon 4400. I have moments where I experience what you're saying but for the most part it's an amazing center. I def think I have some acoustic issues going on. Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk

    Set up

    I have mics. I use audessy to auto cal and tweak it usually. I haven't been using it that much other than distance and setting levels. My speakers already have a flat response and sound good without the receiver trying to set anything. Wouldn't putting them in the corners cause a bunch of unwanted reflections and make the bass boomy ? Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  4. In that big of a room you could be fine but depending on how loud your listening. I would suggest a quality sub to start. With a good sub you should be fine with this set up. Otherwise I would bump up to the 450c and 280f..... At the very least I would bump up to the 440c over the 400c. After your sub the center channel is very important Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk

    Set up

    Been messing around with speaker placement. My set up is: Rp 504c Rp8000f SVS 1000pro Denon 4400 The picture looks awkward but cell phones never really capture the moment. The towers are 8ft apart and 8ft from the listening area. They are also 2 feet away from the back and side walls. The sub and center channel are 14 inches away from the rear wall. The room is a rectangle but the ceiling is shaped like a barn as it's above the garage. Meaning the center is 7 foot but the edges slope. I've been trying to optimize the sound. Everything has always sounded great but my knowledge of placement is limited. I've been doing some research and I don't have the equipment to measure. Should I pull the center out more? I think the sub is good since it's ports are in the front. I just moved things around and I have some wiggle room. Just wonder what recommendations anyone has . I guess I'm looking for the cleanest sound. Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  6. Pull those bad boys away from the wall and toe them in just a little bit. I would splurge and get the 504c it's a beast. Lastly the sub Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  7. I had the Sony 1080. I ran polk signature speakers with it. At near reference volumes everything sounded great but at lower volumes I always had to turn up the center. I since replaced my AVRs with Denon. I have a 504c which is paired with 8000fs which sound amazing. I'd say I always had issues with dialogue with all AVRs I had even my Denons unless I cranked it up. The great thing about the Denon is Dynamic Audio. Granted it adds some compression but it balances out the dialogue for every day listening and when I'm watching a movie I just turn it off and crank it up. The one thing I've learned over all these years is not all sources are equal in the audio/video world. Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  8. I have these speakers as well in a 5.1 set up powered by a denon 4400. I plan on adding 4 atmos speakers to the mix at some point and I'm thinking of adding an external amp just for the front stage. How much power should these guys get? Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  9. I picked up some Dayton audio speakers that I can mount. I have a similar issue as you. I have a room above the garage that's a barn like shape. Hoping to set everything up soon Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  10. Pretty awesome. I'm about 7 feet away. I originally bought mine for my large living room and after a spat with the wife I moved them to a smaller space. No regrets! Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  11. My RPs sound so natural and very immersive. It's really hard to tell where sound is coming from because it sounds everywhere Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  12. I would at least try out the Rp260s as the fronts. You got to be a little curious on the sound difference. Honestly the surrounds don't do a whole lot in a lot of sources. Can't say I've heard the R series but my rp 8000fs are amazing Sent from my KB2007 using Tapatalk
  13. 90% if the sound comes through the center including the dialogue. I also have the 504c and it's the best center channel I've owned. The clarity and the depth of sound is amazing. Sent from my GM1915 using Tapatalk
  14. I'd spend the extra 100. I have the 504c which is the matching center for the 8000fs and I've never been more impressed with how seamless the soundstage is Sent from my GM1915 using Tapatalk
  15. I think you're a little misinformed. That receiver isn't 175watts per channel. Most ratings are for one or two channels driven. If that is 2 channels that means when you're listening to anything in stereo that's the power rating. Most receivers have one power amp. It distributes based on the needs of function. So even when your watching a movie let's say 5.1 audio your maybe getting 80-100 Watts of power per channel. Realistically that's in heavy scenes of audio. When you add more speakers that power rating drops even more. That receiver is a 7.2 meaning 7 speakers and 2 subs. I believe it supports Amos which also means it can be used in a 5.2.2 setup. 5 speakers, 2 subs and 2 Atmos speakers. With that being said you shouldn't be concerned with the power rating as most receivers with in their respective classes share similar power ratings. 125 Watts vs 100W isn't going to give you any noticable difference. Let's look at the Denon 3500vs4500. The power rating is a 25w difference. You would never notice the difference in terms of power. But the 4500 has extra on board processing that produces a cleaner more robust sound. If you move up to the 6500 it's kind of the same.... Very minimal increase in power but better sound reproduction and more channels. You need to test a couple receivers from different brands to find which sounds best to you as each brand has different sound signatures. Once you pick a brand you need to decide what features you need/ or may want in the future. My main point in all this is ignore power ratings. It's not what's going to make your speakers sound better unless you have really hard to drive speakers, which you don't.... They're Klipsch. I would however get a receiver with preouts just to eliminate buyers remorse. At least you have the option to add amps later. Sent from my GM1915 using Tapatalk
