  1. Hi @Zen Traveler thanks for the input. I hear ya. It’s a lot of trial and error. I think this will be 5th center I’ve tried over the years haha.🤦‍♂️
  2. Do you think I’ll hear a strange difference in voices when dialogue moves from the center to left or right mains when watching movies? Not sure if it will sound unnatural since the RP will have a titanium tweeter and the mains have aluminum.
  3. Hey @wuzzzer! thanks for the reply. I mainly watch movies and tv. Not hearing the dialogue clearly always seems to be an issue for me. Therefore, if the RP-450C solves that problem, I’ll be pretty happy. The second sub was a huge improvement even though they don’t match. I’m excited to try the bigger center. I was thinking maybe the RP-280F’s as well (if I upgrade). I’ve heard good things.
  4. Hey everyone, so I’ve gotten the urge to upgrade since I’ve joined the community (probably not a big surprise 😆). I’ve recently picked up a second sub and also ordered a RP-450C (replacing a R-25C). I’m wondering if my tower speakers will pair ok with the new center? I’ll test it out when it arrives but, figured I’d ask in case someone else has been in a similar situation. My current set up is below. Denon AVR-X2300W - receiver R-28F front left and right RP-450C R-120SW & R-10SW - subs Mirage Nanosat - surrounds thanks
  5. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Kirby but, I think it’s awesome that everyone in the Klipsch audio community is honoring him and sharing stories. Thanks for sharing and RIP Kirby.
  6. In case anyone else is interested, I’ve decided to switch out the tweeter once I find the right replacement in stock. I found other similar conversations about this when I searched the forum.
  7. Hmm. Interesting. It says 3 ohm on the top of the part where the part number is listed.
  8. My multimeter says 2.1 Ohm when I touch against the tweeter connectors. Is that about right?
  9. To clarify, I’m the one who disconnected the tweeter to take the cover off.
  10. Thanks for the reply @wuzzzer. I double-checked the jumpers and they are tight. l also tried switching the banana plugs in either the top posts or the bottom. No difference. Running Audyssey again didn’t make a difference. I think the tweeter is working but, is either really weak or perhaps this center pairs very badly with my other main speakers R-28F’s. I have since opened up the speaker but, don’t see anything jumping out at me. If I take this tweeter apart, will it ruin it? From the outside it looks fine. Also, the foam looks like it is from the factory, as you mentioned.
  11. I say fire it up and see how those babies sound!
  12. Hey everyone, so I bought a used RC-25 center speaker and after some initial testing, it sounds awful. It’s connected to a Denon AVR-X2300W. I bought it to to upgrade from a R-25C but, the treble is really weak. I adjusted a bunch of Audyssey and manual adjustments on the receiver but, the treble is just lacking. I’ll Redo the entire Audyssey calibration tomorrow but, I have a feeling something else is wrong. Maybe a blown tweeter? Also, I shined some light into the front ports and it looks like foam is stuffed in the back and essentially blocking the ports. That shouldn’t be there right? I’m guessing someone did that to reduce low frequency vibration. However, I wouldn’t think that would effect the highs. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
  13. Thanks for clarifying @inMotionGraphics @iRONic Awesome set up. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Depending on how high the center will be mounted, perhaps you can get an adjustable mount to safely angle it towards the seats? I also wonder if the rears will keep up with the others. However, if they are right above the listeners head, it probably won’t matter if they have a little less overall powerful. Just my thoughts. Good luck. It sounds like it will rock!
  15. I ended up getting the RC-25 since I’ve seen mixed reviews for the RC-35. Plus, $50 was hard to pass up. Now I just need to test. Thanks again everyone.
  16. Yes. That is the exact sub I’m considering. Thanks
  17. Thanks again. I’m pretty loyal to the Klipsch brand but, I have to admit I have been considering a SVS sub when I upgrade. Are those types of topics allowed in the forums?
  18. Thanks for the replies! @inMotionGraphics you said, get the biggest second sub. So it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match the other sub? For some reason, I was thinking they should match. Thanks.
  19. Hey everyone! My receiver has the option for two subs but I currently only have 1 R-10SW connected. Should I get a second R-10SW or just replace it with something more powerful? I like the current sub but feel it can’t always hit the really low frequencies and chuffs sometimes during big action scenes. Let me know your thought. Thanks
  20. Thanks again. I think the Audyssey is set to Reference instead of flat and the dynamic volume is off. If I can’t get the RC-25, how much should a RC-35 sell for? I see one of those locally listed for $150
  21. Thanks @billybob @Zen Traveler I did run the Audyssey set up and the overall sound in the room is pretty good. I then set the front speakers to small and did crossovers at 60 or 80 so that the sub would handle the lows instead. I’m not sure if that messes up the other Audyssey settings? Just looking for a little extra clarity, especially during movies. That is when I feel the voices are really lost. I’ve also tried turning up the center but, that didn’t sound right either, to my ears.
  22. Thank you for the replies. I did previously try a Polk CS10 and then a Martin Logan Motion 8i but, I didn’t like the way they paired with the mains either. I just haven’t tried another Klipsch center. Only the current center (R-25C). Any other center speaker I should try in case I can’t get the RC-25?
  23. Hey everyone, I just joined and I’m hoping for center channel advice. I currently have the following set up: Denon AVR-X2300W receiver R-25C center R-28F front left and right speakers R-10SW sub Mirage Nanosat surrounds I’m looking to upgrade my center channel since I feel the voices are sometimes overpowered by the front left and right speakers. I can pickup a RC-25 speaker locally for $50, which has a titanium tweeter. Should I give that speaker a try? How important is timber matching? What are your suggestions? Thanks
