  1. I dug a little deeper and it definitely is looking like I will need to bump my budget to $400-500. I believe I have narrowed it down to three amplifiers that should suit my setup well. The three I am looking at are the Audiosource AMP310VS $499 at Crutchfield, the Emotiva A-300 $399 and the Emotiva A-500 $499. Thoughts on these and which one would be best?
  2. I am pretty new to the idea of an external amplifier. I was looking at different amplifiers on Best Buy and Crutchfield websites. It looks as if there are some brands that are around the $350 price range. I believe some of the brands range from Behringer, Rosspower, Samson etc... I was also looking into the Emotiva UPA-200, but it looks as if that model is no longer sold. I am honestly not sure what I need, what brands are good and what power the amplifier should have per channel at 8 ohms to power my two R820f’s.
  3. Thank you, I appreciate it. I just wasn’t sure if A: the receiver was powerful enough (had a 5.1.4 Pioneer Andrew Jones setup before this) and b: if an power amp in the $350 range would make that much of an audible difference in my setup. If it will make a large difference I may go ahead and do it, but if negligible I will hold off. I forgot to mention in the previous post that my room dimensions are approx. 16’ x 16’.
  4. Hi all, My current speaker setup is two R-820F's, a set of R-51M', the R-34C, four R-41SA Atmos modules and a R-120SW. My receiver is a Denon x4300h. My question is if my receiver has adequate power for my speakers, or do I need an power amplifier as well? I just got these speakers and do not want to damage them by sending two little power to the speakers. I only watch movies with these and at the very most will have the volume on the receiver set to -10db, but mostly watch between -20db to -15db. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated. These are my first set of Klipsch and I know they are efficient, but I am not sure if they paid well with my receiver.
  5. Hi all, I just recently purchased two R-820F's,a set of R-51M', the R-34C, four R-41SA Atmos modules and a R-120SW. I currently have all speakers set to small even the R820F’s (I think this is the correct setting as most people recommend). I am having a hard time deciding the crossovers for them. I currently have all speakers set to 80hz except for the R-41SA’s, which are set to 150hz. However I need some guidance on this. I am have read around and am seeing some people recommend the center channel crossover at 100hz to eliminate any unwanted bass etc in the channel. Also, some people recommend the cross over for the towers be 60hz instead of 80hz, 90-100hz for the bookshelf’s and 120hz for the Atmos. Can someone please give me some advice on where to set the crossovers for these speakers? I am a bit lost as to what will work best for them.
  6. I opened them both and they both have a brace that came loose in them. I don’t believe this will cause any sort of sound issue with them.
  7. Hi all, I am new here and just finally bought my first Klipsch speakers. I am currently running a 5.1.4 setup with 4 r-41-sa height speakers running atmos. I purchased both atmos speaker sets at Best Buy as open box items marked as excellent shape. When going to install them I noticed something rattling/rolling around inside of one of the speakers from the set. I then opened the other set and one had the same rattle. All four speakers seem to be playing ok and maybe it is just a piece of the mdf board, however I am a bit worried something may have come loose from either the tweeter, or the woofer. Is this something to be alarmed about, or is it a common issue with these speakers? I may try to initiate a return on these if it is a something to be alarmed about.
