    Home theater and gear pictures

    I thought there used to be a section where everyone showed their picutres of their home theater room and or set ups. Lets start a thread showing pictures of our set ups. I know everyone likes to see pics of gear and speakers etc. Helps to spark new ideas for the rest of us!
  2. Hi! I am building a home theater system (7.2), and time has come for me to choose a receiver. It should be mentioned that I am a newbie and learning as I go. From what i've gathered, its really important that your receiver delivers the right amount of wattage required by the speaker at the correct ohm. My system consists of the top of the RP line, and it would seem that every speaker are within their watt cont/peak at 150/400w at 8 ohm. My problem with this is that I can't find any receivers at all that even supports at least 150w at 8 ohm per channel, and these receivers are around the 3000$ mark. Am I going about this "Receiver-speaker-wattage"-thing wrong or am I just in the wrong price class?
  3. Up for sale is a Klipsch SW10 II subwoofer in the black finish. It has a 10" woofer in front and a 12" passive radiator in the back. It works great, but I just don't have a need for it asking $100.
  4. I currently have an Integra DTR 50.4 that is powering a pair of Palladium 17B bookshelves and a Palladium 27C center (my sub is in flux and I don't have rears at the moment). My primary use for my setup is TV and movies (95%) and then audio (streaming from pc, spotify, or phono). My audio guy is strongly in the camp that the Integra is not fully showcasing the speakers as well as some other receivers could. He's suggesting either the NAD T787 with the newest HDMI MDC installed or an Audio Control AVR-7 or AVR-9. These receivers are definitely a step up in audio quality from the Integra I currently have, but I'm concerned that they don't focus as much on video and thus I might run into problems (looking at forum posts, people complain of HDMI handshake issues and ARC issues). He is also trying to persuade me to stay away from some Asian manufacturers (Marantz, Denon, Onkyo/Integra, Yamaha, Pioneer) as he claims the audio will not be as warm. I don't have a ton of data points to work with from personal experience. If anyone here has insights on a suitable sounding AV receiver that will mostly be handling video and dialogue over stereo sound, I would be greatful for your input.
  5. Last year, I purchased a 65" 4K HDR TV set, Samsung M8500 UHD BR player, Yamaha Aventage ATMOS receiver, and Quintet 5 speakers. I have a smallish 10x10 living room. Since the TV was hung just a foot under the ceiling, I added a speaker-mount bar, that attaches to the top set of the TV mount bolts (see generic photo below). I put the quintet center, and 2 quintet speakers, below the TV. I mounted the other 2 quintet speakers to the speaker-mount bar, either side of the TV, so they are about 2 feet below the ceiling. For the rear surrounds, I used a pair of bookshelf speakers I already had. Now, Fry's is selling the R-14S surrounds for $139. Should I place the R-14S in the rear, to replace my non-Klipsch bookshelf surrounds? Or should I put the 2 quintets in the rear surround position, and use the R-14S as the front height speakers? Will the R-14S overpower the quintets? I just want consistent sound, that won't make me go "there go the rears". The R25C center channel speaker is also on sale, for $124. Should I replace the quintet center with the R25C? Will it overpower/mismatch the other quintet speakers? If I replace the quintet center, is there anything I can do with it? The days of 6.1 surround sound are long behind us (I still have a Panasonic SA-HE200 receiver from the 6.1 days) I can't afford to replace all of the speakers just yet, so your advice would be much appreciated. Art the newbie
  6. I recently made some changes about my home theater setup. I am hoping to get some advise and suggestion if there is anything wrong with my setup. My home theater walk through link: My current setup: Living Room: R28F, R-25C, R-14M, RS-25, Sony -DH800, Epson 142X (1080p Projector to 120 in screen). Master Bedroom: RP-280F, RP-450C, RP-250S, Onkyo TX-NR656 (100w @ 8ohom), Samsung UN65MU8000 ( 65 in 4k) Guest/Kid Room: Pending (probably going with a RF series set) My current concern is: Should I keep 5.1 in master bedroom, or get a pair of RP-160M/RP-150M for 7.1, or get RP-140SA for ceiling bounce atmos, or get RP-5800 ceiling speaker for atmos? As for atmos ceiling speaker, Any ceiling speaker recommendation? Micca M-8C 8 ($40/each), Polk Audio RC80i ($130/pair), Klipsch PRO-180RPC (ebay $250/each ), Klipsch 5800-C II (eba $225/each) ? I have a 5.1 system now ( RP-450C, RP-280F, RP-250S)
  7. The more experienced guys may not have a lot of interest in this, but up until a year and a half ago I thought that I was experienced. I did the attached video because I've seen postings here on issues that have been encountered with the auto setup. I doubt that I will ever use an Auto setup program again. The experience I encountered with this system setup convinced me that I can do better manually. The system was professionally installed and they screwed up. The pros evaluated the room and again they advised poorly. The room had issues. I had to keep the wife's decorating in mind. And I made some mistakes along the way. All have now been corrected and the system sounds great. it took a while to get hear but it was a very interesting learning experience. I also would like to thank the guys on the forum who helped steer me to the RP-450C, it turned out to be a great Center Speaker. the System: Vizio 70" 4K UHD TV Fisher MT-273 Turntable with Ortofon M-10 cartridge Yamaha RX-A860 Receiver Front L&R Speakers: Klipsch Heresy I - complete rebuilds Front Effects: Martin-Logan Edge in-wall speakers Center: Klipsch RP-450C SW: Parts Express Titanic #300 10" Here's the video on how I went through the system and below it is an audio demo

    R-26F/R-25C/R-14S/R-12SW Crossover?

    I just purchased the speakers mentioned in the title for a home theater setup. I will be using it mainly for movies/games and have a pioneer elite VSX-LX302 receiver. i ran through the MCACC calibration and it set my front R-26F to large and others to small with 100Hz crossover. It seems a little heavy on the bass with this setting and thought I would change the R-26F to small but I can only set one crossover setting for all speakers. If I keep it at 100Hz, is it even worth having the floor standing R-26F speakers? Or would I have been better suited with bookshelf speakers? Any help with crossover or bass knob settings would be greatly appreciated! R-26F = 38Hz - 24kHz R-25C = 82Hz - 24kHz R-14S = 83Hz - 24kHz R-12SW = 29Hz - 120Hz

    Connecting R-26FA

    First off, I am an audio idiot. I am in the process of replacing speakers that I bought in the mid-90's. Therefore, I will apologize in advance if this all just sounds stupid to those of you who are experts in this area. I bought an OLED television and a Yamaha RX-V683 receiver as I'm trying to upgrade the sound to match. On the advice of B&H, I purchased the R-26FA floor standing speakers, as well as a center speaker. The rear speakers are still in transit, so I haven't connected those yet. But as for the R-26FA speakers, they have six posts (three sets) on the back for connecting wires. The instructions say: Some Klipsch Reference speakers come with dual binding posts that are connected by a metal strip. Do not remove this strip or your speakers will not function correctly. Keep this strip in place and connect your speaker wire to the top set of the binding posts. It is possible to “Bi-wire” a speaker that has two sets of binding posts. Please see your receiver’s manual for further instructions Ok, so I connected my receiver to the top set of posts, which sit alone. Now the sound comes out of the top of the speakers (the elevated one that lies on something like a 45 degree angle). However, shouldn't the front of the speakers be putting out sound as well? Or is that only for bi-amping? Should I be hooking up additional wires from the receiver to these other posts? Compared to my vintage 1996 speakers, this sounds pretty great, even without the rear speakers in place yet. But I have a feeling I'm doing this wrong and would like to get the most out of these. Support is closed until Tuesday, so I'm hoping someone can give me some advice. Thank you.
  10. My Audyssey microphone was DOA and I've been patiently awaiting it's replacement. I figure I can go the manual route for now. My setup is as follows and I was hoping you guys could help me with some of the finer details in terms of the crossovers, large/ small, +-db settings etc.., just to get a guy started. -Denon 4300H Receiver -Klipsch R-26 towers (x2) for my L & R (and currently setup as center) -Future state-Klipsch R-15M bookshelf (single) for center once we get our console table in place under the TV . Side Note- would it be blasphemous to have it on its side laying down to save on height? -Bose 161 (x2) for surrounds (hung on basement soffit ~6.5ft from floor nearly directly to the left/right of seating position) -Monoprice Caliber Series 8" ceiling speakers (x2) -Klipsch R-10SW Subwoofer (10") (x1) The main seating position is about 12ft from the towers and the sub, 7ft from the surrounds and 7ft from the heights. 12AWG connecting it all in wall. I’m setting this up as a 5.1.2 Atmos setup for movies and some gaming. Any advice is welcome. I’m a pretty technical individual, but not so much in the audio realm. So I can follow instructions, but coming up with the finer points myself will be a learning process. Thanks folks!
  11. Howdy all - Just updated my receiver, want to put an extra pair of RB5-2's to use as front/upfired Atmos l/r channels, but can't seem to find a stand that would allow them to fire at the correct angle and still be stable. Anybody have any suggestions? I'm thinking 30-45 degree angle at least, lying on its back. They'd be sitting on top of RF5's. 'Preesh any ideas. Dan O

    New home theater

    I haven't been to the forums in a few years, so my knowledge isn't fresh on home audio (parent of four young kids, work, etc...). I'm about to undergo a home addition and I have a bit of a clean slate to develop a new home theater room. Dimensions on the room are not set yet, but I've got a $7k - $10k budget for my home theater. It will be 99% home theater usage, I expect little to no other usage. Because of this I'm leaning towards the new RF7s and RC64 along with ?? surrounds and dual R-115SW. I really need help on determining whether I should go pre-amp & amp or just a nice AVR. I'm leaning AVR for the simplicity, but I'm looking for suggestions here as well. Looking forward to the fantastic feedback from the Klipsch community that I remember!
  13. Hi everybody! I’m trying to determine if the R-15m bookshelf speakers (that are 50% off right now!) would be suitable rear channels for my home theater setup. My primary concern is that my receiver may not be powerful enough to drive them along with the other speakers, and that I would potentially damage my speakers. The receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR555. The specs are here: https://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR555&class=Receiver but I’m having trouble interpreting them when comparing them with Klipsch specs. This receiver is currently powering the RP-150m bookshelf speakers as the front left/right channels and the RP-250c center channel. I’d like to add the R-15m as the 2 back channels for a true 5.1 experience but I’m not sure if I’d be exceeding recommended wattage for this receiver. Help! I asked for advice last month about how to set up my subwoofer and the advice proved to be super helpful. Thanks in advance to any advice you can give!
  14. Hey all, been a while hope everyone is doing good. I've been cleaning out the music stash and found these surround speakers. Will test the waters here and see if anyone wants them. Check my history I've bought and sold a lot of gear via the Klipsch Forums. I've even sent speakers (Academy, Heresy) over seas. Please pardon the yellowish tint on the shot from the top....bad lighting. I can assure you they are bright white. Very good shape the day they arrived they went up on a wall. When they came down they went in a box. A little dust here and there, once over with a damp cloth and they should be great. One blemish on top front corner of one speaker. $65 $55 and I'll pick up the paypal fees you pay for shipping from zip 21154. Looks like with adequate packing it will be about 20 pounds. I'll ship however you like. I wonder what Barbara Miller is up to these days? Thanks Barb!!!

I am looking for 5.1 but open for 7.1 I tried looking at some of the series' but not able to compare them side by side for deciding on any of them. Any expert recommendation will be great.

    Need Advice on a New Setup

    Hi guys, New to the forum so first I'd like to say hello. So I am moving into a new condo that has been all pre-wired and the design of the space also makes my options a little more limited on top of that. I have attached a picture that sort of shows the room, the subwoofer, ceiling rear speakers, general couch/listening area, and center channel/tv location. Since it is a new place I wanted to update all of my speakers. Due to space limitations, i was thinking of doing RP-160M front left/right speakers. For the center channel i was thinking the RP-250C. Then the subwoofer I was thinking of doing the R-110SW. Then there is no placement for rears in an ideal location so the ceiling was wired in the two areas circled in a red box. I am not sure which ones to go with though. The CDT-5800-C II or the CDT-5650 II. Also, I want to see if my choices in center channel and subwoofer should balance out the space appropriately. Further down the road i was going to put speakers in the rest of the place too. One room needing high humidity and a pair outside. So if the ceiling choice for the rear surround could be picked out in advance to balance out with the rest of the future whole home audio system in mind that would also be ideal. Thanks in advance, Mike

    What to do

    Hello all, im new to the klipsch community. I currently have def tech speakers and have had them for a while. The klipsch line is very appealing to me. I was wondering if anyone can help. I want to get the RF 82 ii and the RC 62 ii or the 64 ii. Will these be a match or are they going to sound a little different together with the 64 ii or will it be ok? I was also thinking of a combo of one of those centers with the rb 81 ii. The system is primarily used right now for tv and movies. Some music, all types. I have a pioneer elite receiver for power right now. I am doing a 5.1 system for right now. Any help from would be appreciated. I heard the RC 62 and rb 62 and I really liked the way they make natural sound. Or should I be thinking about the premier line instead? I also wanted to add I already have an svs sb 16 ultra sub too. With all the speakers on sale right now, it's a great time to build a system!
  23. Hello all! I'm new to the forum and would appreciate any insights you may give about an upcoming project of mine. I would like to utilize about half of a room that measures 30' wide by 58' long with 8' tall ceilings so their space would be 30' wide by 28' long and divide the room with a heavy curtain. I'm not concerned with sound affecting the non-theater half of the room but only in optimizing the experience of the theater side. I plan on using a 150"-160" screen with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio with my projector which will still be tight with only having 8' ceilings. I am currently considering a 7.2.4 setup using 2x RP-280F, 1x RP-450C, 2x RP-160M, 2x RP-250S, 2x R115SW, and 4x CDT-5800-C II in ceiling speakers for the Atmos effect. I was wondering at what room size one would consider using Cinema products instead of Home Theater equipment or if there are better options available that I haven't considered. The room would be used nearly 100% for movie viewing with the first row of theater seating at approximately 10' from the screen with low-back sofas, the second row would be theater seats at 17' from the screen, and the third row would be theater seats approx 23' from the screen. Thanks for any suggestions! Theater Example.pdf

Are these good setups for movies, music, and games? Any safety concerns with a toddler. Thanks Drew
