  1. So I recently upgraded my Klipsch RP-150M bookshelf speakers that I had for about 3 years to the Forte III’s in my audio setup a few days ago. Wow...all I have to say, biggest improvement I have seen so far! I have been experimenting with placement, currently have them about 12-13inches from the back wall in my apt., slight toe-in and 6-7 feet apart. They are about 13 feet from main listening position. Sounding pretty good but does anyone have any recommendations for me to improve the sound more? Also I have heard that these speakers need time to break in to sound their best, is this true? Any and all comments are appreciated!👍🏻 - Matt
  2. I have a pair of two KG 5.2s, but unfortunately the receiver got lost somewhere along the 20+ years I've owned them. I am interested in putting them to use but I don't know how or which receiver I could use for them. does anyone have any ideas?
  3. Hi Gurus, Am new to the forum and trying to put a new system together to replace one the kids helped themselves to :-). Purchased KLIPSCH Speakers as follows Fronts 2- RF-7III , Center 1-RC-64III, Rears 2-R250S, Bass- 1-R112SW ( will add another base and or surrounds matching if needed and have second area by the pool to play simple outdoor AV and music so two zones.) Looking for suggestions on what I should use to drive these, room is 45x60 ft open area kitchen, living breakfast nook. Read on-line that I should get the speakers I want and then look for suggestions for how to drive them and thats where the choices started to make less sense. Appreciate the help and suggestions. Thank you.
  4. Good day all, I have a set Cornwall 1. I listen to these speaker at conversation level, or slightly higher 90 plus % of the time. what like is that they have great detail at low levels, very room filling sound, and still sound great off axis/in another room. I am soon to move. New room 12x24, with 8 ft ceilings. The speakers will be on 12x16 portion because of hallway opening breaking the wall up. 1 speaker will be close to corner, and other, only back wall. I have been kicking around the idea of selling my Cornwalls for either NEW Cornwall/ La scala/ Fortes, or used chorus ll. I have a pair of quartets, so I get an idea of the flavor of the rear passive speakers, however I have to crank them louder than I usually like, to get them to open up, but at louder levels I might enjoy them better than the Corwalls at the same level. I am wondering if the quartets (New) bigger siblings can play as well or better at lower levels as my Cornwalls, or would they be similar to quartets? Would the La Scalas need more room to breath even at my normal listening levels? I wonder if it would be worth the change since I listen mostly low to medium low levels with the occasional crank fest? Should I just upgrade the stock Cornwall's? If I do upgrade, who do you think would have the upgrades that would best fit my style of listening. I listen to all music except the screaming metal. I don't know the name of the genre. grateful for responses
  5. So all this week i've been trying to find out about under powering speakers. There is a ton of info about over powering speakers but not much on the dangers or issues of under WATTing, <-- not a real word, speakers. I bought a pair of R-14Ms that fit well within my system specifications. I want to buy a pair of R-15Ms but the RMS is higher than the RMS of my AVR. Will it be OK or should I avoid purchasing these speakers and buy another set of R-14Ms? Here are the details: Small/Medium Room DENON AVR-S730H 75w - 165w MAX Klipsch R-15M 85w - 340w MAX If I can get a clear answer from a couple of you fellow Audiologists it will clear up questions about additional speakers I plan on purchasing. Thank you in advance!
  6. Hi, Got a question and not sure if this has been brought up/mentioned before in the forum. I'm looking to add in Height Channel speakers to my 5.1 system to get Atmos sound out of my audio. I cannot install in ceiling speakers as it would just be too big a task to take on and installing wall mounted speakers for Front Height would make more sense in my setup. I've been looking at a few options and I'm just not a fan of the whole Atmos enabled speakers with ceiling bounce... easiest of the options, but I just don't think it will work. I want to know if Surround Speakers would work well to disperse sound in a wide angle direction instead of just forward direction would work well since surrounds are bi-polar speakers.... Or use bookshelf speaker would do. My only concern with bookshelf speakers have a venting port in the back, if it would cause vibrations/distortions when playing any tracks/movies. Surround speakers don't have a rear venting port and therefore wouldn't have the same issue that bookshelf speakers have for possible vibration of air being pushed out the rear. Looking for some guidance in this area. Also, if someone can give recommendations on best speakers of use for front height use. I have the following in my system: R82 - Front L/R RC52 - Centre RS42 - Surround SW110 - Sub Denon AVR-X3300W Much appreciated to any input here. Just looking for that Atmos experience. Thanks
  7. Hello, Ikm New to this forum. Im looking for the integrated amp for Klipsch RP-250F. Was looking at Yamaha s701 (801), marantz pm8005 Nad C368 as possible options. Marantz and Nad are rated 70 W in 8ohm while Yamaha is 100w. But heard that Marantz and Nad sound is superior. Any suggestions are very wellcome! thank you!
  8. Looking into Emotiva XPA-3, it puts out 275 RMS. My RF-7II’s are 250W RMS, and the center channel I’m getting is 200W RMS. Will the 275 hurt the 200 RMS center channel? Not worried about the RF-7’s

They are beautiful Rosewood Exotic Veneer these need some help with the finish as the have some nicks on them but the sound very nice, they have some holes on the back from mounting brackets for mounting them to a wall. one of the tweeters has been pushed in a little but I don't hear anything wrong with the sound. these are not in mint shape and have been used in few houses I will be posting pics of them in a day or two. I will be making new jumping wires for the speaker post as they can be biamp. also I am missing one of the covers to them. I am near Orlando fl and will ship them to anywhere in the usa or up north. I would like to get 200 plus shipping

  14. Hello! I've recently purchased the 'Klipsch The One' and now I'm trying to figure out how to connect it to an old 70s receiver (pioneer sx750). Since speakers can just be connected to my receiver with stripped cables, and "The One' has just a mini-jack port, I'm wondering how would be the best way to plug it. Please see attachment. Hope you can help me out! Thanks!
  15. Hello! Brand new to this page, and for this specific reason! I am moving out of my house soon and decided to see what I was going to bring with me. My dad left speakers, and little did I know until about an hour ago these big guys are Forte IIs. With what I have read, they seem to be pretty decent too! But I have NOOOOOO CLUE how to set these up. I am used to aux cords, and usb to hear music, so I'm pretty dumb founded with these weird looking wires lol.. I really want to hook them up and get them playing some music/for movies (if thats normal). Any advice on how to set them up would be greatly appreciated... if the sound doesn't blow me away and is not worth it to me, just going to sell them as i do need money! Any advice would be great! Thanks again. Cheers!
  16. Hello, I have already blown a denon receiver so I'm wondering after much research what receiver would be best for my setup. Not necessarily looking for a certain brand just what power or watts per channel i need etc. I have all Klipsch: 1 x R-110SW , 2 x R24F , 1 x R25C. Maybe I had something setup wrong on the original receiver, idk. I also don't remember what exact receiver I had but I know it was a Denon 5.1. I'll be adding to the setup in the future as well. 2 more surround sound speakers. Any input is wanted. Thanks in advance! Jamey
  17. Hi i am located in Georgia and i am trying to sale my brand new in box Klipsch RF-5 speakers in satin black. Please email me if interested i am willing to ship if paid by buyer. Thanks
  18. I am debating on whether to set up my theater room as an Atmos setup or a standard setup. My receiver only has 7 channels therefore I can do a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos or a standard 7.1 Dolby digital configuration. Will there be a noticable difference in sound with the Atmos or will I appreciate the sound more as a 7.1 standard configuration. The room size is around 12ft x 19ft. I am running the following for my setup: 2xRP-260F (Front left and right) 1xRP-440C (Center) 2xRP-240S (Surround left and right) 1xR-115SW (Sub) Denon AVR-X3300W Receiver If you think atmos is the way to go do you think i would like the 2xCDT-5650-CII in ceiling speakers or the RP-140SA up-fire speakers?
  19. Here is a picture of some speakers that I just completed. You could call them Cornwall III clones or Cornwall inspired, but they are DIY scratch built speakers. The cabinets are Baltic birch covered in South African waterfall bubinga. They are filled with factory drivers and crossovers, so of course, they sound amazing. I'm trying them in different rooms with different amplification to determine where they are going to stay. I Love this hobby!
  20. I recently purchased a set of the Klipsch KB-15 Icon Series bookshelf speakers. I used 18 gauge speaker wire hooked up to a 200Watt Sherwood receiver with a Sony turntable connected to a Memorex pre-amp. For some reason, I am not hearing the crisp sound that Klipsch is known for and am wondering if it is my system? The speakers are a maximum of 85 Watts each and I believe 8 ohms. Any advice or insight from the community would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Hello fellow Klipsch audio fanatics! I have decided to sell my complete 6-piece Klipsch XF-48 home theater system, having upgraded to a pair of Sonus Fabers. This system has been carefully maintained since original ownership and has never been moved (in same space for entire duration of ownership) and is in excellent condition. These speakers have served me really well over the past few years and I am confident they will grant their next owners years of audio goodness. Included are 6 speakers which are detailed as follows: • Two XF-48 tower speakers • One XL-23 LCR center channel speaker • Two XB-10 bookshelf surround speakers (stands not included) • One XW-300d subwoofer There's a Sound & Vision article written about this set from a few years ago with all detailed specs; link is as follows: http://www.soundandvision.com/content/klipsch-xf-48-speaker-system#D8wEAdoE3Uu4TWZQ.97 I have not seen any available sales for this entire system and based on secondary pricing for individual components, the set should sell for ~$1100-1400. I am willing to negotiate. I am based in NYC area so would prefer to sell to someone within a reasonable distance but willing to consider shipping them as well.
  22. 2x Klipsch RF-62 II Floorstanding Speakers for Sale! Looking for around $250 each $500 for both or best offer.

  23. I could really use some help! I previous used Tannoy powered studio monitors in my Harmon Kardon 3490 connected by XLR to Male RCA cables. I plugged them into the AUDIO Pre-Out. Now I'm hoping to replace them with these Klipsch R-14s, but I cannot for the life of me get the passive signal to work. I used 16-gauge wire, stripped, twisted, and connected to the twists in Speaker 1 section, but nothing. I triple checked connections and polarity, tried banana plugs and everything, but no dice. Do they need to be connected to the PRE Out with a 16 gauge open stereo wire to RCA male? Is there such a wire? I'm so confused!
