Just got two brand new RP-260F along with a Anthem MRX520 amp. Received the Klipsch sub and center speaker a couple days ago. We hooked up just the sub and two towers and prepared to be blown away by incredible sound. I queued up Steely Dan and hit play. Ah....the music was horrible. No highs. Nothing from the tweeters. Checked and double checked all obvious things. Polarity, inputs, sound settings, nothing. Changed speaker wire gauge (16). Finally we unboxed the Klipsch center speaker and all frequencies were heard and it sounded incredible. How can this happen? Two brand new speakers and both tweeters are out? Does not seem possible. I'm hoping that although I am not new to home audio, I am overlooking something very simple with these speakers. If both tweeters are out I will have to consider returning the entire Klipsch set up and move on to another brand. On a side note, when unboxing the subwoofer there was a loud rattle in the cabinet. Once out of the box and bag and after a little shaking around, a corner support from inside the cabinet came sliding out of the front port of the sub. WTF? Glue is on the support piece but apparently it was not secured well enough since it has been bouncing around in the cabinet for lord knows how long. I'll send that back simply because the cabinet's integrity is compromised but the 260's? I need to understand what I can do different to test these tweeters. We've been looking forward to this audio upgrade in our home for months and this is so disappointing it makes the wife and I quite upset. Suggestions?
Hi Everyone, I am building my first Klipsch home cinema kit. I used to have Bose Acoustimass 6.1 (a Surround back), I am still using the back and rear satellites - But they gotta go! I have new RP-280F for my fronts, the RP-450C obviously center and just got the Dolby Atmos RP-140SA's to sit on my front RP-280F's. I have a R-115SW on it's way. I am in a quandry as to what I replace my Bose surround and rear satellites with. My lounge is large (15m x 7m with angled/pitched ceilings and a lot of arches and stairs etc, ….acoustically awkward) with my living are at one end and dining area at the other, the sofa sits half way down with the rear of it facing the dining area, fron obviously facing TV etc. I was thinking of going foe the RP-250's to replace the surrounds and rear on stands at each end of my sofa, then thought what about getting a pair of RP-250's or 260's, then what about just the RP-160M's? Can anyone give me some advice as to what would sound best, do I need to get a new rear too? If so what? I am running it all from Denon AVR W6200X. Please let me know what you think. Looking forward to hearing from you. Cheers - Rob
