  1. 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

  3. Hello I’m selling 2 SW-15 subwoofer cabinets 100 dollars each or best offer. Feel free to call me on my cell phone765) 749-9792 . This would be a local pick up in Muncie Indiana (47303)
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!

    TUBA HT

    Anyone with TUBA HT experience? I am assembling a TUBA HT in the 24 inch version. Anyone with know how on the TUBA?
  10. So I decided to deploy a sub with my La Scalas. I went with the Polk PSW505 which is a powered 12-inch sub, great reviews and relatively inexpensive. I am going to be using the speaker/line level inputs as my Yaqin amp doesn't have a pre or sub out. According to https://www.upscaleaudio.com/pages/subwoofer-tips this is not a bad way to go. I do not intend to connect the LS to the speaker-out on the sub, which means I will continue to have full range going to the LS. The sub has a variable crossover point, from 60-120hz. What would you recommend as the sub xo point, given that the LS will continue to receive the full range signal. I've read the LS drop off completely at ~50hz and are weak below 90hz, so I'm thinking 90hz is a good point. I'll experiment but wondered what the community thinks best given your experience and this specific config.
  11. I have Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers that I've bought from 2 years ago and I've been using them frequently ever since. Recently, the right channel speaker sometimes works, and sometimes it doesn't. I noticed yesterday that when I plugged the power cable of the subwoofer (to which the speakers are connected to), the right channel speaker was working for a while like it should, then it stopped. Also, I've also noticed both speakers have a low buzzing sound, and the buzzing sound doesn't go away regardless of changing the volume. But I really just want my right speaker to work again. And by the way, I am not a sound techie so I won't understand a lot of tech jargon. I know that there are so many places to start, but if anyone can help me out with what I should do from the information I just gave, that would be awesome! Thanks!
  12. As the title reads: I know nothing about subs... My current setup as of yesterday - Fronts: RB-35 Center: RC-62 Surrounds: RS-52 Now, the hardest part is going to be convincing my wife that we NEED a sub... Whether this is true or not, she will not likely be receptive to spending another $300+ after I just picked up these RS-52 surrounds for $220 this week... So. Who is willing to educate me? Here is what I want to know: - Will a sub really make a difference? (my guess is yes, it will) - I can probably get away with buying a Polk PSW10 on Amazon (under $100), but is it really worth it? Better than nothing at all? - Ideally, what's the sub to help round-out my system? (I'm assuming RSW10 or RSW15 would be the suggestions?) - Assuming my budget cannot allow the two subs mentioned above ^, what's the "next best thing" - doesn't have to be Klipsch, but preferrably... More questions about subs in general: What's the typical lifespan of a sub for HT? I'm guessing most people just leave them on 24/7? Or is this something you turn on only when playing certain movies, games, albums,etc.? Do you leave the sub on when watching the news? I am happy with my current setup. I'm waiting to pick up the RS-52s this weekend so I'll get them mounted and see how that changes the sound in my room. I'm at a 5.0 setup. Moving forward I think a 5.1 would make sense. I just need to "feel" the difference, and have a little help here with justifying the purchase! Cheers all!
  13. Is there a general volume level for the auto-on to be triggered and turn on the sub. I have an RSW-12. If i am listening at a moderate level at night, I have to crank the volume a bit to get the sub to switch on ... and then I turn the volume back down some. About 15 or 20 minutes later the sub turns off due to the lower volume for night watching while the kids are asleep. What are some of your experiences with this topic? I assume it could also vary on getting a true 5.1 signal from a blu ray versus a stereo or other type of signal from the cable box. Any yes.....I would prefer to have the volume cranked up more all the time.....just not always practice with sleeping kids or the wife making business calls. Thanks.
  14. I bought a used kg sw subwoofer on ebay and was already aware it was missing the feet. The mounting holes are unthreaded and slightly over 3/8" diameter. The mounting surface is 3/4" thick. The mounting feet must snap in, I'm guessing. Anyone know where I can get OEM feet? Ideally, I'd like to place it horizontal but I'm guessing the feet were removable for flexible positioning. If I can't get feet, should I plug the holes? Suggestions on what to use? Anyone know where I can get a manual? Thanks!
  15. Hi there, Got a question on Sub cross-over settings. My receiver Denon AVR x3300w lets me assign the cross-over frequency for the sub. Now reading the spec sheet, the sub says its rated for 120Hz, however, when I look at the back of the sub it says 150Hz. My receiver can go from 40 - 250Hz. Want to know what is the SW-110 rated for, 120Hz as noted on the spec sheet or 150Hz as on the back of the panel. Thanks
  16. I´ve just bought a pair of R-28F loudspeakers to be used with a pair of R-15M as rear ones. I´d like to know which is the subwoofer that will the best for this combination (The amplifier is a YAMAHA RX-V481). Thank you
  17. Need some advice on how to setup outdoor speakers 2x AW-650 2x AW-400 CA-800TSW (150w 6ohm) Sony STR-DN840 (7x150w @ 6ohm) Only have the 650s hooked up right now and they sound great. Should I get a simple 2x100w amplifier to power the passive sub? Noob to home speakers so any advice or a simple typed out diagram should help.
  18. Have been combing the forums for a few weeks now, and appreciate the time everyone puts in to help. I am in process of finalizing my speaker list and could definitely use some help with rear surrounds and subs. Below is what I had in mind and it seems from the forums, it is ok, but I was looking for the preferred option. Room is 18' x 16'6" in a basement. MLP will be about 36"-40" from the back wall. RP-280F (L, R) RP-450C (C) RP-250S (Side surrounds) RP-160M (rear surrounds) R-112SW (x2) Request 1) Keeping LCR same, what is preferred for the rear surrounds? RP-160M, RP-250S or RP-250F? The reason I ask is all 3 choices are within ballpark of each other after I consider cost of stands for the RP-160M Request 2) Is it better to have 2 R-112SW vs. 1 R-115SW? (having 2 R-115SW will basically blow my budget) Layout attached. The 8 boxes on side and back wall are columns. Thanks in advance for your advice!!
  19. So I am able to grab a hold of the R12SW (and I can get 2 of them) subwoofer its on special on bestbuy.CA for 500.79$ or I can get the R112SW for 1054.99$ My current setup: R28F Front L/R R25C Center I do not have side or back surrounds yet, later to come. No subwoofer yet of course Hard to decide, or I can just wait even much longer and get the R115SW but I am looking for a nice bang for the buck, its all about the buck help me decide thank you ! I use my system for music, lots of music, sometimes video watching or even gaming sometimes. I have a Onkyo 7.1 Ch am I able to use a Y splitter to put 2 LFE cables in and run them to the 2 subs?
  20. Hello. I am in need of (2) Passive Subwoofers for a pair of KG4. Anyone have them besides Ebay? Thanks!

  22. Hello, I am currently building up a 5.0 system based on Klipsch speakers. After receiving the Klipsch rp-150m from Amazon and testing them a day long, I figured two things: I absolutely adore the claritiy of the heights the speaker delivers. Secondly, that I am sadly missing the third monitor I had on my fap cheaper Grundig bookshelves. It just feels like something is missing in the bass department with most music. I know that I could or should paire the speakers with a good sub, but but I have doupts that my neighbours would forgive me that. I don´t think I could get myself a subwoofer... the walls of my appartment are so extremly thin and hollow. Now quickly to my question: Do you think it would be a good idea to upgrade to the Klipsch R-28F floorstander or another similar priced floorstander with the third driver, I a missing now? I would just exchange the rp-150m´s I currently have. I am living in Germany and I think about 300Euro is as much as I can spend with a good concience for one speaker( I´m a student). My only doubt about going that way is that I heard in a review that Klipsch made some changes to the horns and the ones rp-150m´s are different than with the older modells. Is that true? Because I really enjoy the sound I have right now. (Except of the feeling that I am missing the base of the music.) I don´t want to sacrifice the nice heights these bookshelfes produce right now. Sadly I don´t find many used klipsch products in my area, so I can´t just buy a used and odler, formerly expensive klipsch floorstander. Also I generally listen to all kind of music, but mostly at low or moderate sound(because of neighbours). I really appreaciate any suggestions! If you need to know a few more things, just tell me. Sincerally David
  23. Hey everyone. New owner of 2 R-10SWi wireless subwoofers. They are amazing. I have them connected to my Yamaha Aventage r-a860 receiver. I live in an apartment so I have to listen at low volumes at night. I have both subwoofers turned to the AUTO(on) feature. If my sound is too low, they eventual turn themselves off while I'm using them. What can I do? I've tried fiddling with the gain etc. I feel I need to listen at slightly uncomfortably volumes for my neighbors to keep em on. At low volumes, they're awesome and really help fill out the sound of my system. I'd rather not have to keep turning them ON and OFF each time I use them and would like to keep using the AUTO function if possible. Thanks for any advice.
  24. Short version, need recommendations for a subwoofer for use with Klipsch Quintet 5.0 speakers to be used as a PC speaker surround system for games & music. Full story: My beloved Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 PC surround speakers finally bit the dust. It might be repairable, I think it's the transformer (progressively worse humming), but the control pod has been barely functional for years, so time to get something new I think. Except hardly anyone makes high quality PC surround systems anymore. Logitech used to (Z5500 I think) but they discontinued and replaced with something much poorer. So I've been cobbling together a system from parts. I started with Klipsch Quintet 5.0 speakers that were on sale at Newegg for $239 (still are until Monday I think). I searched high and low for a compact AV receiver, but nobody makes one - they are all standard audio/video equipment size - big.. But just by random chance I found a hybrid (tube/SS) barebones 5.1 amp that is small enough to fit on my desk. (Dared DV-6C if anyone's interested.) So now I need a compact reasonably priced sub to accompany the system. I watch no movies on it, it's just video games (hence the surround) and music. So I want something crisp and clean - games do not rely on low frequency effects in the same way that movies do. So looking for a compact, tight sub in the $200 range that complements the Quintets. Doesn't need a ton of power, it will sit right under my desk. Also should have a speaker-level input, as the 5.1 amp does not have any other outputs (I said it was bare-bones. 5.1 channel analog RCA inputs, 2 channel analog auxiliary RCA inputs, 6 speaker terminal pairs and that's it). Looks like I missed all the sale pricing of the Klipsch SW-350 as it has been in the process of being discontinued I think - that might have been perfect. (SW-450 is on sale for $199 at newegg, but it's too big. For reference, the old ProMedia sub was 15"Lx11"Wx12"H) Any recommendations?
  25. Hi everyone, I'm interested in upgrading my system to R-15PM monitors with a small sub. I would like to listen to high-res audio-files mainly through my Computer/the R-15PM's integrated DAC but I can't find any information on what the dac is capable of. As the speakers will be placed in a small room, I wonder whether the R-10SW is big enough as a sub or if the R-12SW is a very big step up. Thanks in advance for your answers, Tim TL;DR: What are the specs of the R-15PM's DAC? How big is the difference between R-10 and R12 subs?
