I would love to know why the Klipsch woofers over the last ten years or so have succumbed to so many cosmetic issues. Almost every woofer since they switched over to the spun copper type have dings, dents, crinkles and whatever else... Why would Klipsch not figure out a cure for these issues? There are a ton of manufacturers that use aluminum, copper or alloy woofers that never have disfigurement issues like the Klipsch do. For the most part I understand that the cosmetic defects do not attribute directly to poor sound but my goodness, looking at listings on Audiogon, Ebay, US Audio Mart....you name it. It is very rare to see these speakers without significant damage to the woofers. I have never pushed my speakers to the point that they distort yet there are a few tiny dings in the woofers that make zero sense to me. I am sure if Klipsch invested a little time to come up with an answer and distribute a different alloy mix into the woofers there would be way less problems with the end result. I mean I am a huge fan of the Heritage series and I would take any of them hands down over the Reference lines. Good old paper cones, poly cones and what have you very rarely distort even when pushed past their limits. Even the older SB and KSB series speakers dig deeper in the bass than the reference speakers do and keep their shape intact doing it. After ten plus years, did no one think of re-configuring the new copper woofers?
Everything is SOLD except for the emo xpa-5. He is asking 650 and amp is located in Kansas City but can be taken to Des Moines Iowa this weekend if that makes it easier for someone. hey guys, currently i am rocking rs-52's in my living room. i have a buddy local that has some rs-62's for sale. i was gonna snag em after another buddy told me he would buy mine. fast forward two months and my buddy has not commited to buying my 52's and the guy with the 62's now needs money. i feel obligated to either hurry and sell mine or pass on what i feel is a good deal on the 62's. my 52's have a tiny bit of damage on the top of one at the very back from when i mounted it and it nicked against the ancient thermostat in my living room. the other is mint. i would be looking to get 350 out of them. the 62's my buddy has says they are mint, i have not see them but believe him as he has probably the nicest theater i have ever been in. he is looking for 500 out of them. neither mine or his have original boxes so shipping would be tough but probably still doable. he also has a mint condition 1st gen xpa-5 for sale as well. says it has about 5 movies watched on it. so lets say 10-12 hours. mint condition as well and i think he has the box for it. transferrable warranty on it obviously from emotive. he is wanting 650 for it. i can get any pics for anyone if there are some interests shown. otherwise i dont care too much to post pics of something that everyone here knows exactly what it looks like. like i said just trying to help a buddy out since i kind of spoke for his speakers when he could have been trying on his own to sell them for a couple months. cant afford to buy them without selling mine first. oh both surrounds are first gen, not the second ones. location is kansas city.
For a 7.1 Home Theater setup, if I have RS surround speakers that are 75W & 100W or 125W, should I place the more powerful 100W or 125W speakers at the Surround Side locations or the Surround Back locations? Due to windows, openings, etc, I have to place the SR surround side and surround back speakers at almost 10' high. Should I cantilever forward the RS speakers off the wall to point directly to the seating locations? Or will the sound quality and power, even at this height, be great enough not to worry about it? The total ceiling height of the room is 20' high. The area of the room is 15' x 20'. If I should cantilever them, are there any good looking brackets out there that can do this?
