  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. I have the 8000f/504c combo and I'm overly impressed. The soundstage is wide and seamless. I love how clear everything is at low levels and high. My room is about the same as yours with 12 ft ceilings in an open floorplan. I get great sound filling everything. What are you going to use to power them? I have a Sony 1080 that I'm going to replace soon. I think at 5ch output is about 70 Watts. 2ch is around 100w. It's plenty of power but I want to give them more Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Exactly. I have the 8000fs. I don't have the 280s to compare to. They sound pretty great to me. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  6. The 8000f gets a plus one for sounding exactly the same 90 percent of the time? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Trying to grasp what your saying here? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. I have a pair of 8000fs. I replaced some Polk signature s50s with them. I can't comment on the 280f but I can say that the 8000s look really nice and sound really natural. I think the difference between them is a new Tweeter and a tatrix port. It's not just the Tweeter that's vented. The whole cabinet is. Now compared to the Polk s50 which has 5 inch woofers they actually put out more bass. Must be something with the power port design. The Klipsch definitely sound better in my opinion. Sounds just seem natural and detailed at all volumes. These are the first speakers I've owned that I can listen at low volumes and still hear everything. I also have them paired with the rp 504c center. Hope this helps some? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. You think all the new gear is probably just as had? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. That's what I was wondering. I just got the new RP line and I'm so impressed im considering using a complete Klipsch sound system. I don't know anything about their sub woofers Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. So why are you in a Klipsch forum bashing their subs Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Their little electric car? Hell yes Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. That's because it's new..... On the Klipsch website it has all the new line of speakers. There's 2 new subs.... SPL and a multifunction one that's compact with radiators and Wireless capabilities Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I didn't realize the sub and amp were separate... Not trying to spend that much Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. R-115 over the newer SPL series? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
