  1. Thank you to everyone who responded. I'm going to try all of the suggestions here. Thanks again.
  2. So I can just connect the speaker wires to the top two sets of connectors only? Does it matter if I connect them to the top or the bottom set of connectors? Thank you all very much for the help. I really appreciate it.
  3. Thank you all for the help so far. The two reds and two blacks are connected with gold metal strips. I connected my receiver using one set of speaker wires to the two upper set of connectors. I hear the tweeter well, but the woofers sound muffled. I just expected more bass and a fuller sound. They are set up in a garage with a 504c and 502 surround speakers. I'm sure the acoustics are terrible in the garage. They will be going into a classroom. I'm not sure I'm getting power to the woofers because I only hooked up one set of connectors. Thanks again.
  4. Metal jumpers? I'm not sure what those are and nothing else came with the speakers. Other than basic install I know very little about sound systems. These speakers replace my fifteen year old system, so I have been out of the game for many years. I'll Google it to see what metal jumpers are. Thank you for your help.
  5. I'm sorry about the newbie question, but I just bought a pair of RP-8000f speakers and they have two speaker inputs on the back. I think I understand that they can be powered by two separate receivers, but can I run them with one? I plugged my receiver into the top pair of plugs but I am not getting a complete sound from the speaker. The woofers sound muffled. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  6. I just set up my new Klipsch RP-8000s, 504c, and 502 surround speakers but they don't sound very full and I am hoping that someone can give me some advice as to help them sound better. I am using a Yamaha RX-V685 reciever. Most of the clear sound is coming out of center channel but there isn't much coming from the RP-8000 front speakers. I expected those to sound full with decent bass, but there isn't much sound coming from the two 8's. The 502s sound muffled, but I understand that they are supposed to sound that way, seeing as though they are more for surround sound. I guess I just expected more clarity and full sound. Full disclosure: - The speakers are currently set up in my garage and are not spaced very far apart. They will end up in my classroom when I go back to teaching (once the pandemic is under control). They will replace a sound system that blew out after 15 years. I'm sure the acoustics are a lot better in my classroom. - I listen to heavy metal...rap and jazz sound a little better but I still expected more fullness with the new system, even from heavy metal. - I have very little knowledge with stereo systems, other than basic installation, so if someone asks me what frequency I have my crossover set at, I won't have any idea how to answer that. Thank you in advance for any help.
