  1. Can I do this and will it improve the former sound or does the amplifier play too large of a role (plus I know the design for the 10d is very different)?
  2. Hello, I have a model # R-115SW. I purchased it roughly in spring 2016. I think I am just past the 2 year warranty mark. Anyway, the sub gets limited use. Usually it's turned off or in the standby mode. I actually have 2 of these subs connected to an Onkyo RZ900. The one that is malfunctioning is hard wire connected to the receiver. I have noticed that it has started making a clicking sound that repeats at the same beat /rhythm. This happens anytime the sub is turned on, not needed to be connected to the receiver or receiving a signal. Has anyone had this issue and an answer about what is causing this? The second sub is working fine and is connected wirelessly. I have had this system for about 2 years and never had any issues until now.
  3. Any tip on how to setup a subwoofer for best sound? On sub itself and in the receiver too?
  4. Hello all, I have a Yamaha R-N303BL stereo receiver I'm using in a room, with the intention of using the B outputs for outdoor speakers. I also have a subwoofer (K100-SW) for that room that I'd like to join in on the fun. The receiver has no sub output (obviously, since it's stereo, not home theater), but it does have line-out, and I figured that would be fine with the LFE/Line-In on the sub (which does not have powered speaker inputs). However, I had not considered that line-out was volume-independent - so the sub volume remains the same regardless of selected volume on the receiver. D'oh! I have seen suggestions of using the B output on a line-level converter, but I plan to use the B outputs for outdoors. I would rather not swap out for a surround receiver for a room with only speakers just to tie in the sub, and I'd rather not swap out the subwoofer for one with L/R powered speaker inputs that then chain off to the L/R speakers, if possible. Would it be viable to connect a line-level converter to the A speaker posts in parallel with the L/R speakers, and use that to connect to the line-level input on the sub? I have seen some on Amazon that are described as being for older radios to hook into a new receiver or something like that, so I'm not sure they're designed to handle this type of scenario - I don't want to let out any of the magic smoke that makes electronics work! So, is there a viable way to run the line-level input sub off the receiver's speaker posts alongside the L/R speakers, or do I need to exchange the sub for one with L/R speaker inputs & outputs? Thanks for any suggestions!
  5. Anybody heard the JBL Sythensis / Harmon Kardon Citation 5.4 subwoofer? Found a pair for $500 in ATL. Good match for the RF-7ii’s?
  6. Hi All: I have a pair of Klipsch KSP-400 tower speakers, which has a build-in 15" subwoofer on each speakers. http://images.klipsch.com/KSP400C6S6...5637990000.pdf I love this speaker pair in my home theater as they sound extremely good, very easy to drive and the subs are very well integrated with the mid and high. However, in the last few months, one of the sub started to make a loud buzz/hum sound when first turn on (wake-up from auto standby); the buzz sound is very loud for the first minute or so then getting softer and softer then completely gone in about 5 minutes. After that, the sub is working perfectly fine, until it goes to sleep (standby) then wake up again! My questions: 1) is there any quick and easy fix to the amp? or what is the problem? 2) if I leave the amp on all the time, not in auto standby, then I don't have this problem. I have let it on for most of a day and the heat sink behind the speaker is not much warmer than the one on standby. However, I'm very worry about the heat and fire hazard, if I leave the amp on all the time. What do you think? I did some search, a few folks had replace the amp on this speaker with an external amp and the speaker is still working fine, but I don't want to do so as that would add another equipment to my space-limited rack, also modify to the speakers and cost. Thank you for any suggestion. BT
  7. I'm going to buy a pair of Bookshelf Speakers (maybe Klipsch R-15PM) and a Subwoofer (maybe Klipsch SW-112) in the future. I have the following doubts: The R-15PM are powered monitors. The website says "This highly efficient, powerful yet minimalist speaker engulfs listeners in their favorite movies and music. ", so i think they are good for listening to music and movies. But people say that Hi-Fi speakers are better for home listening than Monitors, because they add coloration... Anyways these Klipsch are intended for Home and not for Studio... What would be the difference? Also: Do Hi-Fi speakers sound harder than this Klipsch? Offering more volume, power... The monitors came with a remote control. This control has SUB+ and SUB- buttons, so you can adjust the subwoofer volume. Can I set the subwoofer gain (in the unit's back) to Max, and then use the remote to control the volume? I'll like watching to movies with the corresponding dynamic range, without changing the bass volume, a "flat response", but I'll like to be able to "boost" the bass in music, with the SUB+ button. What is the best way to do that? Thank You Very Much.
  8. I know the answer is YES! 2 subs are better than 1. But, is one 15” enough to satisfy the bass tooth? What I’m asking is, by adding a second 15” sub, does it give me 200% better bass? Or, by adding the second 15” sub, I’m entering into a bit of diminishing return, and only gives me 150% better bass. What it comes down too, Is it worth the extra dough?
  9. Hello folks, again new the forum, I was at a flea market and came across a sub-woofer by Definitive Technologies ProSub 800 cube, to my surprise it was acoustic suspension with pressure coupled passive radiator, I have a few other subs but for its size both being 8 inch and very compact in design, retails for $399 and got this for $75, rated at a true 20hz this was a great find. Does anyone own this type of sub and if they do, please let me know if you are as satisfied as I am with this sub. I will be using this sub in the bedroom because of its small footprint. I was surprised the bass radiator didn't have standing waves that would muddy the very lowest frequencies.

  10. I'm trying to decide between the Klipsch RP 12" or 15" subwoofer for my HT. My room is 16.5ft long by 14ft wide by 8ft-10in. high. Primary usage in for movies, TV, and occasional sports. I have both a projector screen and 65" TV (TV sits in a cavity between the roll-up screen). The general rule is this forum is "bigger is better" but I have also heard others in other forums suggest that 4 smaller subwoofers (8" to 10") placed in each corner of the room would be better. Also would like to have your feedback regarding placement. I've seen designs with the subs in front, some with them along the sides and some with 2 in front and 1 placed along the back of the wall in a corner. Really confused.
  11. I have a beautiful RSW-15 in black available for sale. It is in terrific shape, has some minor scratches, one small imperfection, 2 missing grill pegs, and is otherwise in great shape. I purchased this subwoofer from another member in the forum and would like to sell it to another member in the forum to "pass it on." I have tested it extensively, and it works 100%. I added feet to this sub, as it came without feet. Some scratches on the bottom are there most likely due to the lack of feet. I did some light touchup on them in order to make the appearance as perfect as possible. The member who had it before me took excellent care of it, and I have also. It has absolutely no performance issues and plays loud, low and clear. Asking $750 for the RSW-15. I enjoy getting to know and meet the members here. Please be friendly! I look forward to creating a win-win here My track record is not long here but I am 100% honest and forthcoming. Feel free to ask any questions or request additional pictures of any part as needed. I am located in Chicago, Illinois, in the far north part of the city. Easily accessible for anybody, safe and parking is not a problem where I live. Cheers, Roboklipsch
  12. I have two Klipsch R-12SW subwoofers for sale for $300 each OBO. I am willing to negotiate price because there are a couple of slight scratches on the top of each one but they work beautifully. The original boxes and packaging are included. Please see image below.
  13. I just ordered a pair of the RF-7 III however I hesitated to order the R-115SW because I saw one interview on Youtube in the CES 2018 event and it appears a new subwoofer will be released soon for this pair of speakers, does somebody knows something about this?

  15. I have an older Klipsch KSW12 subwoofer. There is a wooden ring that lays around the speaker. It apparently is glued on. It isn't secured with screws or anything else. It's fallen off of the speaker probably due to vibration over time. I'd like to reattach it but I don't know what kind of glue to use. I don't want to use just any glue and have it vibrate off again. If anyone could recommend a glue and/or a repair method for this I'd appreciate it. Thanks..
  16. Hello! I just moved into a new place and I'm finally setting up my home theater again. My old subwoofer died in the move (It was almost 5 years old), so I picked up a new Klipsch Sub-12HG to match my Quintet. I have everything running through a Harmon Kardon AVR 1700. Everything sounds pretty good after running the Harmon's auto adjust setup, but I have no idea what my settings my subwoofer should be set to. I'd appreciate any help I have no idea what these buttons/switches do. Thanks!
  17. Hello Community, I have the sw-450 subwoofer and we just moved in to a new place so it's time to setup and recal everything, and I'm at a loss for the sub setup. My receiver has an auto-setup function with a listener mic, but how should I set the nobs on the sub? Should I be bypassing? Volume? I've seen a lot of mixed information, and I've even seen the "just experiment until it sounds good" suggestion. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? The rest of my setup is from the Icon series, so kf-28's in the front, ks-14's surround, kc-25 center channel. Pioneer Elite vsx-40 receiver. Thanks!
  18. It's for real this time. New couch means I can no longer hide these behind out current couch. A pair of custom made boxes 30" wide by 10" deep by 24" tall. Has a Dayton Audio HF-15 driver and the Dayton Audio 500 watt plate amp. $500 takes both. These things can be tuned very easily. They can shake your house of the foundation or give you some deep tight musical bass. I'm located in Rocklin, CA (just outside Sacramento) and am looking for local pickup or I can drive a little ways to meet half way ect. I am posting these here first and if no takers in a week or so I will put on the dreaded Craigslist or Facebook marketplace....Any questions feel free to PM me. Thanks Jeremy

  21. Hi, If I were to connect the Yamaha YAS 107 soundbar to the Klipsch R-110SW subwoofer, and I set the gain on the back of the sub to 1/4th, then would the soundbar's remote (which has a separate control for subwoofer volume) be able to to adjust the sub's volume from 0 to 25% (because I set the gain on the back of the sub to 1/4th) or from 0 to 100% (i.e. what I set on the back of the sub is irrelevant)? I ask because I will have some AIRBNB clients stay here and I don't want them to mess up the system. Also, do you think this set-up could possibly crack a glass window which is 3-4 feet from the sub? I'm just worried some client will mess things up badly. Thanks for your time!, kam
  22. Hey Klipsch community! In the past couple years I've been bitten by the audiophile bug and I've been driven to find new and better ways to enjoy movies and especially music. First I got the two RP-160m bookshelf speakers, then the RP-250C center channel, and this week I finally got my sub, the RP-110SW. I've been happy with the bookshelf and center channels, but I'm pretty sure I have no idea what I'm doing on setting up the appropriate crossover--for the 160's and especially the sub. I'm wondering what the best crossover setting for the receiver would be, and also on the sub itself. I've read a bit and trying out different things, but thought I'd ask in case someone has a similar setup or could show me the way. I'm not sure if it matters, but I'm using an Onkyo TX-NR555 receiver. Thanks for any assistance you can offer!
  23. I got a killer deal on a used RSW-12 on Craigslist in Houston for $350. Thanks Cesar. It is in just about perfect condition and looks super clean with the exception of on very tiny unnoticeable ding that is partially hidden by the grill cover. I will touch up the spot with a black marker at some point I guess. I have wanted one to go with my RF-3II, RB-5, & RC3 setup since I bought them in 03-04. It is replacing the RW-12 that has served me well. I may hook both up and try it out for a while but I really don't feel I need 2 subs. Have been pretty happy with one. Room size is only about 14 x 17. I put the SVS isolation feet on it to reduce the room rattles and vibration downstairs (got to keep the wife happy). So far, so good. I have watched the Eagles blu ray and the sound is great. The San Andreas movie was awesome with the new sub. Will experiment with placement tuning (facing a corner now) over the next couple weeks and likely put my old one on Craigslist for a couple hundred I guess.
  24. Hi All! Looking for advice to build the best possible sound experience for an upcoming event I'm organizing. At my disposal are 6 pairs of Klipschorns, a pair of Industrial split LaScalas, and a pair of "Keystone" 18" folded-horn subwoofers that measure about the height and width of the bass bin of a Klipschorn, and stack nicely under the LSI's. I have false corners for the Khorns and risers for the top hats, to bring the high end above guests' heads. The event is a dance-focused evening inspired by the Mancuso Loft parties in NYC. All vinyl, songs played start to finish and a wide journey of genres. Room dimensions are 40 feet by 60 feet, with 12 foot ceilings, and a main dance floor area of 32' by 32'. The goal is an immersive-as-possible sound field surrounding the dance floor, while trying to avoid major combing issues or conflict between the horns. The attached file shows the scale of the room and the Khorn's and LSI's for reference. My knowledge of live speaker placement is low- would love some suggestions or best practises to make this an incredible experience for our guests.
  25. I'm not expecting any specific answers here, just a general inquiry if members here are aware of SVS sales, such as BlackFriday/Holiday sales...? I'm looking to buy the PB-1000, I realize for some people here $500 is pocket change and they'd say, "Just buy the thing already!". But for me, that's a considerable purchase and if I could wait a few months and save $100 or so it's something to think about. I figure it's a company that kinda sticks to it's prices? I know there is an outlet section, but the PB-1000 rarely is for sale in there, which is a good sign in my opinion. So, is anyone aware of SVS sales on their own site? I say that because I know they will go up on sale in B&M stores near me, but that voids the Bill of Rights that SVS provides. I want that 45-day trial, and the 1 year trade in offer, and the 5 year warranty. SVS reps tell me none of that applies (perhaps the 5 year warranty is still valid) if I purchase from a retailer. They set their own policies and don't have to adhere to anything SVS suggests. Thanks all!
