  1. If the plan is to upgrade the fronts anyways, then I'd go for that RC62II. If not, then the r-25c is the one
  2. My best guess would be internal breakage caused by some sloppy delivery guy. Best course of action would however be to return it, file a complaint and get another one from the the retailer you bought it from. You could always try to open up the back panel and see if you can't fix it yourself, but at the risk of voiding the warranty and ending up with a dead pair of speakers, I wouldn't recommend it.
  3. Alright so if im not mistaken, the primary problem here would be a lack luster center? It is normal for a centers sound-presence to feel dwarfed compared to the fronts, especially after running a calibration software or not doing any manual tweaks to your systems many configs to begin with. Its therefore quite common to up the db-level on the center channel through your receivers settings. If this is the primary problem, then buying any other center won't fix this. Now, its been awhile since i've had to do with an Onkyo so im not 100% on this, but I am 90% sure that db-levels for the different sources can be adjusted separately. Alteast its possible on my marantz and yamaha, so im fairly certain onkyo has that feauture aswell. So for example, you can lower the db on your fronts for your movie source without that change being present on your music source. Or you could just up the db level on your center to your liking. Even though im quite familiar with the RP speakers you mention there, Im not at all familiar with the older models you have up there aswell, and so im regrettably in no position to compare these speakers and give you a better image of what you're looking at here. However, I would recommend staying with your current setup and maybe going for those two speakers to the negotiable price of $195. Im afraid introducing an RP speaker to your setup could cause some unwanted timbre mismatch between the different tweeters.
  4. Hi Does anyone know of a Europe based site that offers speaker parts from klipsch?
  5. Hi there! Very sorry that no one here took some time to answer you! To answer your q, yes that denon will do the job.
  6. Highly doubt any new speakers will emerge this year. Both the R and RP line basically just got updated versions and CES2020 didn't seem to hint towards something new and exciting. The new editions of the R and RP line are from 2018, yes.
  7. Hi Audiohead! To be honest, if I were in your situation, I would hold off on buying any of these speakers until you know for certain if you will be staying where you live now or moving into a new place. But to answer your question... The reference and the ref.premiere line speakers do have different tweeters and should therefore be susceptible to timbre mismatch. If having your entire system looking the same through out and timbre-matched is an important factor to you, than I'd stick with only the one speaker line. Remember that buying the whole system at once isn't necessary. There is nothing wrong with building up to a system over time. It might be more economical if you have your sight set to sales and deals.
  8. Hi Tommo! Welcome to the forum and congrats on having a wife open to having a dedicated HT room. Most of your speaker choices seem solid. Keep in mind that the RP speakers do have an older version that is basically the same speaker apart from one little detail and should be cheaper. If you'd like to check them out, the names would be respectively as follows: RP-260F RP-450C RP-250S RP-140SA Furthermore, I see you've listed a klipsch sub there. Whilst that one would be fine, the market is filled with better performing subs. Some recommended brands would be svs, xtz, fluance and monolith just to name a few.
  9. Hi there! Just for future reference, who are these klipsch dealers? Have come across some names plenty of times but when it actually matters, I always forget them...
  10. Since the reference line and the ref premiere line have two different tweeters, there is quite a solid argument that you would have a timbre mismatch. Were I you, I'd stick with reference for now, save up the moolah, live life, and see where your priorities lie in 5+ years. Might not be that you even want to upgrade your system or use that money on audio/HT at all...
  11. 1. I would never go for a soundbar period. 2. The main difference between those two centers would be the woofers and the cabinet size. This info can be found on klipsch.com in these speakers own spec sheets. I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful here, just don't know anything worthwhile about these speakers... However, the general rule is to get the biggest center you can, which in this case would be the 504c. 3. 8000F without a doubt. I myself have both the rp280f and the rp250f. Tried them both as fronts and the difference is immense. You'll notice much more power in the 8000f. Always go big on the front stage(LCR). 4. Ehm no, this information is false. However, having the same type of tweeter across your system is quite important. Thats why its always safe to have speakers from the same series or line within a brand.
  12. Hi there! I'll be answering your Q1-6 and after there will be a paragraph or five you might benefit from. 1. Definitely dual r100sw. The r120sw will for sure give more kick, but what you really want is to weed out all the dead-spots in your room. 2. I'd say kinda. With the size of your room and the fact that reference is the limit, I'd go as big as reference can get. Believe me when I say you want that extra woofer. But of course, you wouldn't know what you're missing out on, so in actual fact, it won't make that much of a difference. But I wouldn't want you to get the feeling that whichever speaker you do choose starts to feel weak, so I'd go as big as I could if I were you. 3. All the speakers you have chosen are the newest editions within their categories apart from the r-14s. That one is a side surround speaker from the previous reference line which came out in 2014. Just fyi, had a look at the components of your listed speakers and the r-14s and you wouldn't have any timbre mismatching. Tried to search for the r-41m and the r-41SA myself and only got the one listing, so I don't know what to say about that one 4. As said in Q3, the r-14s is a side surround speaker from the previous reference line back in 2014. But, since the components from these two lines of reference speakers more or less match, timbre mismatch shouldn't be a problem. The current reference line don't have a dipole/bipole surround speaker. The only side surrounds for the current reference line would be the bookshelf speakers. 5. If you're asking about wether or not the r-41SA is part of the current reference line, than yes, it is part of the current reference line of speakers. I won't presume to know what you've read but what you might have read about is the new tech feature in atmos speakers that elevate their ability to bounce sound off surfaces. This feature is a load of bs. At the end of the day, a speaker is a speaker. It has tweeter(s) and it has woofer(s). 6. I tried to search around and couldn't really find the different designs. Can only find the first one you described. Sorry! First off, nice of you to try to educate yourself a bit before buying! Lord knows not many do and end up regretting it all afterwards. And on that note, are you certain klipsch is the one for you? If at all possible, try to see if any of your local retailers could give you a demo of the speakers you want. They won't sound the same in the store as they will in your own house, but at least you'll have an angle. I get the feeling it has been a bit difficult finding out which speakers belong and match with each other, which is understandable seeing as klispch's web page setup can be a bit wonky, especially in regards of older models. Just so you know, if you search and click on one speaker on klipsch.com, scroll down and click on the speaker manual under "downloads", you will find a chart of every speaker in the same line as the one you are currently viewing. One thing you have to realize is that the technology of a speaker hasn't changed in about 20yrs. So "old" or "new" has very little to say. You could for example mix the 2014 reference line and the current one and have no problems with timbre. Just have a look at what kind of tweeter and woofer a speaker has and hopefully it matches the rest of your system. But if you are like me, the esthetics do matter, and when I land on a speaker line, I won't budge from it. You say that the RP line is for the time being out of reach, and that is okay. I myself think the new RP line is waaaaay overpriced. But as with the reference line, the RP line also have an older edition. I have speakers from that line and am pretty happy with them. Since they are an older edition, they will be cheaper, but will perform better than any speakers from the reference line, old or new. On my page on this forum you'll se a summary of my own system. Good luck with your system!
  13. Hi Udson Not quite sure if this is what you're looking for, but have a look at Omnimount 15.0C ceiling mounts.
