  1. Hi guys, Fry's is running a special today for the new Klipsch Reference 12 sub and I am tempted to pick one up. $200 off and free shipping today. Bottom line.....$249. Does anyone own one of these? Can you let me know what you think... I am pairing it with some RC-3 II's and RS- 3 II's. From the specs it should work out nicely....but hands on experience is much appreciated. For reference, it will be taking over for my Klipsch Sub 10 which I will be moving to another room.
  2. I need a 2nd RSW-15 to balance out my room. I'm in Huntsville, Al and will drive 3-4 hours to pick up. Thanks, Wayne Wilburn wilbucd@yahoo.com

    WTB - RSW-15

    I need a 2nd RSW-15 to balance out my room. I live in Huntsville, Al and will drive 3-4 hours to pick up. Thanks, Wayne Wilburn wilbucd@yahoo.com
  4. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a Klipsch Sub 12 Subwoofer (at least I think; it looks exactly like this: http://www.klipsch.com/sub-12-subwoofer/details). I'm looking to install a custom TV wall cabinet set up for my home theater. Ideally, I would place my subwoofer inside a cabinet with a mesh door; however, mine is a down-firing subwoofer. Does anyone know if I can still put my subwoofer inside and get good bass quality? Because it's down firing, do I have to have an opening at the bottom of my sub so that the bass will come through? Thanks!
  5. HI, I'm considering changing my speaker setup. As I need rather narrow speakers, I was considering a 2.1 setup to get decent bass. The problem is, I don't have too much place for a subwoofer. It looks like this: Free space is 26cm x 26cm (10in x 10in), which would accomodate the Promedia sub but as you can see: a/ on the left it would be actually almost touching the printer b/ on the right it would be 2-3 inches from the couch c/ at the back there would be approx. 10 inches space d/ front will be basically almost touching my legs e/ it would not be standing on the floor, but on a fairly thin piece of metal In this case - is it even plausible to think about the 2.1 setup, or will I be better off with 2.0 speakers?
  6. I just stumbled upon the forum here today. It's good to know that Klipsch has an officially sponsored community. I'd like to bounce a small dilemma I have off the forum and gather some opinions on the subject. I own an RSW-10 which was purchased brand new almost three years ago. This is remarkable being that the subwoofer has been out of production since 2008. Imagine my surprise when I found one of these beauties brand new and still unopened four years after it had been discontinued. You ready for the punchline? I only paid $400 bucks. I came home one day last month to find that my RSW-10 was producing no sound whatsoever. My wife explained that one of our young nephews had accidentally turned the sound all the way to the max on the subwoofer and there was an audible "pop" just prior to the driver's demise. They were watching Transformers II. Enough said. After digging into the unit I determined that the amplifier section was operational and that, in fact, the 10" driver was dead. Good gosh this driver is a thing of beauty... but right now it's just a beautiful paper-weight. My dilemma: After providing my purchase information, Klipsch has, rather amazingly, decided to honor my warranty. They have agreed to replace this unit with an SW-310 after I send them back the broken RSW-10. Obviously the driver is no longer being produced, so they can't just send me a new one. So after checking out some of the reviews and specs of the SW-310, one could imagine why I'm a little less than enthusiastic to give up my RSW after just getting to know her. So then I thought about simply replacing the driver with a quality one from Dayton Audio. The driver I'm considering is a Dayton Audio, part number: RSS265HO-4. They have one which appears to be pretty much spot on to the Klipsch original. The cast aluminum frame of the driver appears to be identical, even down to the six-hole configuration. The specs appear to be in line, and for $140 bucks, I could have a near exact match for the driver ... minus the black anodized cone of course. So, what to do? This leaves me to either wait for a "used" Klipsch RSW-10 driver to show up on eBay one day, take Klipsch up on their exchange offer, or buy the Dayton audio 10" driver. What would you do in my situation? Any thoughts on the notion? In the meantime, I have temporarily replaced the damaged subwoofer with an RW-12d that I found on Craigslist for $175 - in mint condition. It's just not quite the same. The RSW-10 has more depth and a lot more dynamic power than this RW-12d, and, I would imagine, a lot more to give than the SW-310. Thanks for indulging me. Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure:
  7. I have Heresy II's as fronts, RC25 center and R15M as back and above surrounds. The entire system is a work in progress, but currently my sub is the most dire to upgrade. I only have a 10" polk currently. I don't want to go to another crap sub, as I do plan on moving my current fronts to surrounds and getting either another set of Heresy's up front, or other large fronts, with a larger center over the course of this year. Any suggestions welcomed. Regards, Luther
  8. I am looking for some recommendation for a sub. Really appreciate if you guys can share your thoughts and help me pick the right sub for my setup and requirements. Here are the details: My speakers setup would consist of: - RF-62 II for front LR - RC-62 II for center - RB-61 II for surround - Marantz SR7008 Receiver My room is around 20ft x 15ft with three side walls and one side open to kitchen. I am looking for a single sub, 12" between $400-$600 range.
  9. As the title says: for sale is 5.1 surround speaker set made by HSU Research (satin black finish). Consists of: - four HB-1 surround speakers - HC-1 center channel speaker - VTF-2 MK3 subwoofer. All the information can be found here: http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/hybrid1pkg.html Everything works, very good overall condition. Would really prefer local pickup (Connecticut). Speakers can be shipped but the subwoofer is huge and heavy. Asking $600
  10. Hi there, I have a Promedia 5.1 that I love, but I no longer have any need to use it with a computer - just don't use a computer like that anymore. What I'd like to do is setup the sub with my Pioneer VSX-31 receiver. Is there a way to do this without the control pod? If I need to do it with the control pod, what is the best setup for that? I am currently putting the surround speakers through the receiver and don't want to connect them through the sub. Does that make any difference? Are there adapters that I need? Thanks!
  11. Hi there, Hopefully I'm not violating any rules with my first post being an item for sale, but this being a local sale should assure you that it is not a scam. Likely to be of interest to someone on this forum RF-25s: SOLD for $250 RSW-10: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/ele/4766667713.html Not as likely to be of interest, but not completely off-topic Onkyo TX-NR808: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/ele/4729211843.html Not looking to ship any of these, mostly due to my lack of experience in packing such large items combined with how OCD I am about packaging. If I were to ship them, I'd probably want to wrap each item in a mattress, and then stuff it into a large, fireproof safe. At that point, it would make more sense (from both a financial and personal productivity standpoint) to list them in the Craigslist free section. I'd also love to get feedback on prices. I think both items are priced quite reasonably, but I'm pretty sure that isn't going to change the number of lowball offers I'm going to have to laugh at from CL. Cheers, ~Alan

    sub for KG2s

    I would like at least a 10" sub for these, I only want 1 sub and my room is 10X15 but don't need to fill the whole thing so, how do I wire up this sub and what X-over point do I use(I am thinking 120hz)?
  13. Today I picked up a second Maple RSW-15 and need some advice on placement. In a few months, I will redesign my front wall and have the LaScala Trio behind a 150" AT Screen. The subs will either go directly beneath the LaScalas in the corners or I can place them in between the LaScalas (behind the new false wall). The right RSW-15 is usually located behind the door that is directly behind it. When I went to put the left RSW-15 behind the door that is directly behind it, the subwoofer would not fit. Long story short, I would need to build a platform like I did on the right side for it to fit. Since the LaScalas will temporarily remain in front of the current false wall, I have 3 options for placement of the subs: Option 1: Add a shelf for the 2nd Subwoofer so that it fits inside the cabinet. Option 2: Put both subs in the corners behind the Left and Right Door on the False Wall. Only problem with this is that the Left and Right LaScala will be about 8 inches in front of it. Not sure how that will effect the sound. Option 3: Leave them where they currently are in the photos below out in the middle of the room. Again, this is only temporary placement....just seeking some advice on what might sound best.
  14. I've been so pleased with the performance of the RSW-15, I decided to purchase it's identical twin! I've passed on several RSW-15's that were out of state due to not wanting to ship this beast. What is the likelihood of finding another Maple RSW-15 locally? Guess about the same likelihood of me finding a single LaScala to use as a center channel. I purchased the sub from it's original owner. The twin is in excellent condition with only minor scratches on the top of the cabinet. Both woofers are in fantastic shape. The speaker grill had all 4 pegs broken and the previous owner used white glue to secure machine screws to the grill so the white shows through the grill. Will likely throw the grill away since I don't use them and it's in pretty rough shape. I haven't cranked them up yet as I need some suggestions regarding placement. I'll start a separate thread in the subwoofer section though.
  15. I have a SW12 that needs a woofer and a Sub 10 that needs a amplifier.The Sub 10's cabinet is great but the SW12 is fair. Free to anyone in the Cincinnati area. I will upload pics soon.
  16. So after spending an evening listening to some classical music on my friend's Chorus II's, I can see that my Scalas sure are lackluster in their bass performance. Not a big deal--just want my symphonies and jazz trios to reach those lows. I was wondering if any of you have some recommendations for subwoofers that work well with La Scalas. I don't want to break the bank--something around the $500 mark. The space is reasonably sized--around 20 x 14. Any of you LS owners have budget subwoofers that are good for 2-channel listening? On a related note--I'm totally clueless when it comes to powering subwoofers. I'm currently just powering the LS speakers with a Marantz 2230. I imagine this means I need to purchase an amp especially for subwoofers as well? Can I use a preamp signal from the Marantz to another amplifier just for the subwoofer? Any insight would be helpful and appreciated!
  17. Hi Guys, I recently got into the world of klipsch with RF-42ii's and my parents were in the market for a surround sound system and I talked them into purchasing the RB51ii system with: RB51ii (fronts) RC52ii (center) RS42ii (surrounds) The only part that is remaining is the subwoofer. I haven't heard great things about the Klipsch SW110 - pros/cons? Also any other sub in the 500 dollar region that would be really good? I've heard a lot about the SVS Subs. Room is 400sqft and is a perfect square. It has marble flooring and a lot of hardwood/glass furniture. Also would the new klipsch reference subs be any good? KLIPSCH R10SW/R12SW? There are no reviews since I believe they are yet to be released? Thanks a ton guys
  18. Need help picking a new subwoofer to go with my setup. Room dimensions are 20'x16' room is 70/30 Home theater. Lookng for a sub to compliment exsisting setup some where in the $1000 range. Thanks for the feedback!!!
  19. I'm looking to trade my Pioneer Elite SC-55 A/V receiver for the new Reference soundbar with subwoofer this is what I want, http://www.klipsch.com/r-10b and this is what I'm trading for it! http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Elite+Receivers/SC-55 this receiver goes for $600ish now so it's a fitting trade. It's in flawless condition, and I have everything for it, including the original packaging!
  20. For sale is my RSW-10D what do they go for nowadays? 500? I'll do 500 or best offer on that one it's in perfect condition and sounds just.....well, If you're buying one of these, chances are you know what to expect lol. I have the original packaging also. my location is Concord CA
  21. hey guys, i gotta sadly sell this subwoofer. i bought it as a package from bill when i picked up the cinema stuff. it currently sits in my living room and i love the sound of this thing. i have already told some guys that have been over locally that from 18 hz up this thing is about 98% of my dual svs ultras when i had them in the living room. just a fantastic subwoofer. its just too big for the room. it crowds the front so much that my mains are only like 5 feet apart. i just cant swing it anywhere else. and i really have no place else to store it otherwise i would hang on to it and hopefully it would work in the next houses living room somehow. also my wife is taking the summer off from college so we are on a solo income right now, which makes sitting on speakers for a while not very feasible. i have this listed on local craigslist for 1200 but i really just want 1000$ out of it. it would come with the crown xti 1000 that has been specifically setup for this sub by Roy Delgado.
  22. Ok, so I was recommended the Premier Acoustics PA-150 subwoofer. I received the subwoofer and I don't know if its just me, but I don't really like it. It is loud and does a good job at mid frequencies but it seems it really suffers on the lower end from about 35hz down. When it gets that low I don't think it sounds that good, a bit boomy and muffled - almost annoying. So now I am thinking about swapping it out, I have a couple models I have narrowed it down to; Klipsch SW-115 and SVS PB-2000. My mains and center are Klipsch so I figured the SW-115 would be a perfect choice, it also got some good marks but I haven't found an in-depth review. Just seeing if anyone has any opinions or experience between the Klipsch SW-115 or the SVS. I am after clean bass that is usable in the lower frequencies (18hz to 20hz) more than I am for a super loud sub with questionable bass. I am leaning toward teh SW-115 since my mains and center are Klipsch. Mains: Klipsch RF-62 II t Center: Klipsch RC-62 II Surround: Mirage (for now) AVR: Sony STR-DN 1050 Sub: PA-150 (for now) Thanks!
  23. I have no connection with Parts Express, but this has T/S parameters I've never seen in an 18 before. Maybe it could work as a horn driver? 294-2757 http://www.parts-express.com/prv-audio-18sw2200-2-2-18-high-power-pro-audio-dvc-subwoofer-2-2-ohms--294-2757 Resonant Frequency (Fs)30.95 Hz DC Resistance (Re)1.04 ohms Mechanical Q (Qms)13.32 Electromagnetic Q (Qes)0.24 Total Q (Qts)0.24 Compliance Equivalent Volume (Vas)7.95 ft.³ BL Product (BL)14.11 Tm Diaphragm Mass Inc.

  24. I'm moving to Houstion, Texas! I've learned that moving costs money (who knew?), so I need to liquidate some of my toys while I'm still in Rhode Island. A variety of factors has turned this into a quick sale, so my prices in bold are all negotiable and I'll definitely consider package deals. These are for pick-up only. I am selling: Pair of RF-82s in black- condition 8/10, the left tower has two small dings on the bottom cone. ($500/pr) RC-35 in black- condition 9/10 ($185) Elemental Designs A3-300- condition 9/10, I had to turn it off when I moved to this apartment, it nearly got us evicted. ($300) Walker Edison "Everest" Component Stand- 8/10, minor swirl marks on some shelves ($175) Oppo DV-980H- ($70) condition 8/10 - SOLD! The Panamax M5300-PM pictured has been sold before this posting. I also have a pair pf RB-61s on Sanus stands and a Yamaha RX-V1800. I was planning on keeping these pieces but if anyone would like to make an offer on the whole set as a true 5.1 deal, please feel free. I apologize for the "heavenly glow" in all of the pictures. We have two HUGE windows behind the equipment and that glow is there at all times. These pictures were taken at dusk, if you can believe that. I can upload any new pics as requested. Thanks!
  25. I have a great system that I am very happy with. My system is built upon klipschorn with volti horns 2"throats and BMS drivers, plus a beyma tweeter I time aligned and put on top. I have crites 1526c woofers in the bassbin and have volti crossovers too. I am very happy with my corners as well and could go down to 40hz without much loss. I have a klipsch home theater sub, that is less than satisfactory in movies and completely useless in 2channel listening. That is why I decided to build my own horn subwoofer! I just need to fill 20hz to 40hz with as little as distortion as possible. I know it can be big, but I have space and no worries about waf. My initial thoughts are tapped or folded horns as I read they work better with khorns. I also like a full horn system. I have 10 feet ceilings so I can have a tall tapped horn with maybe one fold that would be easier to build. I am not sure which design would be more appropiate for utilizing my k33s though! I am sure there are lot different and better ideas. I am working very hard and only have Sundays and nights, so I cant build a few different ones and try em out. I am waiting to hear about your experiences and help! And if any day you decide to visit sunny Antalya, Turkey, you are welcome to listen to music at my place
