  1. If I had a pair of RR-41SA 's and a pair of RP-140SA's which should I use for ATMOS and which for SURROUNDS?
  2. I have three pairs of RP-140SA speakers in my 7.1.2 set up and I am having trouble with the crossover setting for the RP-140SA. According to the spec sheet, the frequency response for the speaker, "conforms to Dolby Atmos Specification." Apparently this is some secret thing because I can't find it anywhere, at least for home theaters. My pre/pro does the auto-eq routine but like most, it varies and sometimes the RP-140SA crossovers are calculated at 40Hz (yeah right!) and sometimes they are 120Hz + or - 40Hz. I don't know why it's some secretive thing, but it would be nice to know what the bottom range is so I don't over-drive them. Does anyone know what the low end of the frequency response is? I'm sorry to sound like this, but I just find it frustrating that this basic number isn't published on Klipsch's or Dolby's site.
  3. Bought this locally and tried to convince the wife to let me put these in our upstairs living room to make a real theater in the basement. She shot that down pretty quick. (1) R-5800-W II (used for center) - $399 MSRP (4) R-5650-W II (used for fronts and surrounds) - $349 MSRP Each (2) CDT-5800-C II (ATMOS) - $399 MSRP Each Total MSRP - $2539 The only thing i'm seeing missing is two of the machine screws. I'll try and fine some at a hardware store before I ship them. I also have all of the grills and hardware needed to mount. I may not have many posts here but I can get some references from very well known members if you want them. My Price - $750 shipped obo Feel free to shoot me a text. 816-728-9319 Thanks, Matt
  4. I just bought some new R-41 -SA surrounds for my 5.1.4 and am a little confused about the angular build of them. With the wedge shape they must be placed flat against the rear wall or the side walls at the rear of the room. This means that the cone cannot be directed toward the back of your head or the sweet spot. They do not adhere to any of the Dolby specified placement guides. What would you do? Moto

    RP-500SA

    10/5 EDIT: Update...these have "Officially" launched. Now available on Klipsch website Hey all- what's going on? Hope things are well with everyone. Just curious if Jay L... or Chad has info on a release date for the new RP-500SA. Looking to add to my (4) RP-140SA's. The new 5.25" RP-500SA look to be a good addition to the line-up.
  6. Hello, I am looking for a 5.1.4 surround system. Currently investigating the in ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos. Can someone explain me the difference between the Professional and Reference Series (in ceiling)? I read that the latter has Controlled Dispersion Technology®. Which is better for Atmos? Should I go for the reference series? I do like the 'swiveling 100° round Tractrix® Horn'. On the other hand, I do like the square grill of the Professional series.. the reference series only has a round grill? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello all, My first post in the community. I recently purchased an Anthem MRX1120 receiver. The receiver powers 11 channels and 2 sub-woofers. This new receiver is upgrading my setup from a 5.2.2 to a 7.2.4 The receiver can supply 140Watts to fronts, center, surround and subs with an A/B type amplifier while the back channel and elevation is 60Watts supplied by a D type amplifier. I am currently researching what speaker to buy that would match my receiver the best. I am more precisely looking to purchase back channel speakers and Atmos elevated speakers; and it is a lot more complicated than I first thought. My current setup: RP-260F fronts RP-250C Center (but will be upgrading to RP-450C soon) RP-160M Surrounds R-110SW subs x 2 I contacted Anthem to ask if I could use RP-160M as my back speakers and they said it wouldn't be a problem as long as I do not change cross-over setting that ARC had set them. As far as Atmos is considered I was thinking of getting 2 pairs of RP-140SA that I would mount high on the wall. ( I don't believe in putting them on top of floor speakers and bouncing them off the ceiling theory myself.) What I have problem to reconcile is this: the RP-160M are 100Watts with 400Watts peak the RP-140SA are 50 watts at 200Watts peak I'm worried that I am going to ask too much of the little 60 watts amp on the receiver by putting the RP-160M as back. I have considered putting another pair of RP140SA as back mounted mid- wall. the thing is I really like having great sound. I love the current speaker I have but I never heard the RP-140SA yet - if my instinct is correct I have a feeling that they won't cut it for me just like my RP-250C is not cutting for me right now. I have never owned a 7.x.x home theater before so I don't know how much signal is sent to back channel yet. My guess is probably the same as elevation channel and reason why Anthem went with a smaller D type amp for the back and height channel. I also listen to music and having the ability to run all channels might tempt me at some point. I also have a girlfriend that loves to crank the system from time to time. I worry that she won't hear the clipping that might happen with the back and height. I could in just remove them from the equation while playing music by crating another listening configuration file just for music(I can create 4 different profiles total) So what do you guys and gals think? I want to stick with the RP series I just don't know what will work best? any suggestions? Cheers
  8. I have a Synergy F-30 system in a 7.1 format (2 F-30, 1C-20, 4 S-20). This system is working great, excellent sound etc. However I am thinking of upgrading my HT system to Dolby Atmos. This would require adding 2 to four height speakers. To complicate matters, the room where my HT is has a very high cathedral ceiling. I do have one side wall where I can mount speakers at the ceiling/wall joint, however the side is completely open. Because of this I think I will have to go with ceiling mounted amiable speakers. I would like some recommendations
  9. 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
  10. I just installed some professional Armstrong sound panels in my living/theater room. Also got a rug down. Need to get my surrounds straightened out, and then Dolby atmos speakers. Who’s upgrading what out there? Anyone have their finger on the pulse of what audio format is going to take over Dolby Atmos? Or Auro 3D? I’ve asked around about what is the best configuration to put your speakers in for both formats. Nobody has been able to give me an answer. I think I’m just going to go atmos and cross fingers that not everything goes auro 3d. Hope everyone is having a great long memorial weekend. Happy listening!
  11. Last year, I purchased a 65" 4K HDR TV set, Samsung M8500 UHD BR player, Yamaha Aventage ATMOS receiver, and Quintet 5 speakers. I have a smallish 10x10 living room. Since the TV was hung just a foot under the ceiling, I added a speaker-mount bar, that attaches to the top set of the TV mount bolts (see generic photo below). I put the quintet center, and 2 quintet speakers, below the TV. I mounted the other 2 quintet speakers to the speaker-mount bar, either side of the TV, so they are about 2 feet below the ceiling. For the rear surrounds, I used a pair of bookshelf speakers I already had. Now, Fry's is selling the R-14S surrounds for $139. Should I place the R-14S in the rear, to replace my non-Klipsch bookshelf surrounds? Or should I put the 2 quintets in the rear surround position, and use the R-14S as the front height speakers? Will the R-14S overpower the quintets? I just want consistent sound, that won't make me go "there go the rears". The R25C center channel speaker is also on sale, for $124. Should I replace the quintet center with the R25C? Will it overpower/mismatch the other quintet speakers? If I replace the quintet center, is there anything I can do with it? The days of 6.1 surround sound are long behind us (I still have a Panasonic SA-HE200 receiver from the 6.1 days) I can't afford to replace all of the speakers just yet, so your advice would be much appreciated. Art the newbie
  12. Hi all, So I am in the process of building a new home... there will be a roughly 18x20 family room (with 2 story ceiling) where I'd like to put a home theater. I want to build an Atmos setup with overhead speakers (and I understand the overheads don't have to be the best or most expensive), in probably a 7.2.4 or 7.1.4 configuration. The primary use (95%+) is for watching movies. I've been out of the speaker game for a long time but I've always liked the Klipsch speakers in the past. My wife doesn't want floor standing speakers as the TV will be over the fireplace and kind of an eyesore, so what I'm looking for is wall-mountable bookshelf speakers. I need a good center, front left/right, side surrounds and rear surrounds. The overhead speakers I was looking at the Polks RC80i since they are decent quality and inexpensive. For the rest of the speakers I'd like to stick to a ~$2000 budget. So thoughts? I have heard I need larger front speakers than rears/surrounds. I was thinking about in-wall speakers but I've heard they suck compared to bookshelf speakers. Again, they all need to be wall-mountable as well. Appreciate any help!
  13. Hello all and thank you for your help. I am new to Klispch since I recently received a pair of RP-280's. First my setup. Front RP-280's with RP-140sa Atmos on each. Center RP 450c, Rear RP-250's and the subwoofer is a R-115sw. I am running 14 gauge wire to all. I was also given a NAD-765 receiver but it is not 4K (I was told by NAD they are working on an update, but it's still not done). I also have an Onkyo TX-RZ620 4K receiver. So my question, are either of these receivers powerful enough for the speakers above or should I look into bigger, better, stronger one? If so, which is your recommendation and why? Currently I am using the Onkyo running @ 4 ohms and when I crank the volume past 75-80, I get distortion which I heard can be damaging to speakers. True? Also, what wattage should I be looking for? I have not hooked up the NAD since it is not 4K but I suppose I can run all video directly to TV and then run audio back to the NAD. As a side note, the NAD does provide 140 watts per channel but no 4k or Atmos, the Onkyo is 110 but is 4K and has Atmos. I truly appreciate your recommendation and feedback.
  14. time for an upgrade, current system rx-a2060 f-20, c-20 and b-20 New system, waiting for yamaha to drop next month otherwise rx-3070 rc-64iii and rf-7iii my concern are the rears, can i do thx sides, rears and atmos, the rears will only used for movies not music and are the thx in-ceiling good for atmos system will be 7.2.4
  15. I recently made some changes about my home theater setup. I am hoping to get some advise and suggestion if there is anything wrong with my setup. My home theater walk through link: My current setup: Living Room: R28F, R-25C, R-14M, RS-25, Sony -DH800, Epson 142X (1080p Projector to 120 in screen). Master Bedroom: RP-280F, RP-450C, RP-250S, Onkyo TX-NR656 (100w @ 8ohom), Samsung UN65MU8000 ( 65 in 4k) Guest/Kid Room: Pending (probably going with a RF series set) My current concern is: Should I keep 5.1 in master bedroom, or get a pair of RP-160M/RP-150M for 7.1, or get RP-140SA for ceiling bounce atmos, or get RP-5800 ceiling speaker for atmos? As for atmos ceiling speaker, Any ceiling speaker recommendation? Micca M-8C 8 ($40/each), Polk Audio RC80i ($130/pair), Klipsch PRO-180RPC (ebay $250/each ), Klipsch 5800-C II (eba $225/each) ? I have a 5.1 system now ( RP-450C, RP-280F, RP-250S)
  16. Looking for a pair of these atmos speakers.
  17. Hello all, long time lurker, great forum. Thumbs up to @Youthman love your videos. I recently upgraded my front stage, and sub. I picked up an SVS SB2000, RP-250C, and RP-150M. SVS Sub replaced an Energy ESW-8 from the take classic line, huge difference here!!! RP-250C replaced Pioneer Andrew Jones SP-C22 sounds better, a bit cleaner. RP-150M replaced Pioneer Andrew Jones SP-BS22A-LR not as big of a difference here, sounds good though. Still have Pioneer SP-FS51 for surrounds. Thinking about replacing those with something like R-14 TV is an LG 60UH8500 wife and I still enjoy 3D, and this was the last 4k, hdr, 3D tv I could find. I'm running a Denon x1300 and have ran Audyssey a few times, for some reason it sets the fronts and center to 40hz... and sets all of the levels to low - I'm gong to run it again here in a few and will post pics of the results. Now I'm looking to get the RP-140SA to go on top of the RP-150m since I replaced the existing atmos speakers. I currently have the old SP-BS22A-LR on top of the RP-150's and I don't get much of an effect with atmos content, even the demos using the atmos app on xbox one x. 8' ceilings, flat ceilings, sit 9-10' from tv. The tops of the RP-150m are at 28 inches. Anyone have any thoughts on the RP-140SA I've been looking around and trying to find a good deal on them... hard to find apparently. Not sure why these speakers cost so as much as they do compared to other speakers in the RP line. If anyone knows where to get a deal on some of these please let me know, Old ones still sound good even though I'm not getting a lot of overhead effects, I still think it fills it out a bit. I will be selling the Pioneers as I obviously don't want to keep those on top like they currently are. Here is a pic of new setup. Just ran Audyssey and here are the results. Anything look off? Figured I would post pics so I can refer back to it, and easier than typing it all out. Usually I set all speakers to 80hz, but not sure on these klipsch. I only ran 6 passes, is this enough? The 7th wants to place the mic behind the couch, but the couch is pretty much up against the back wall.
  18. Hi Guys, I am new to Klipsch speakers but not new to HT systems. I want to upgrade my 10+ year old HT system because it hardly works with newer competes I have. I also want to upgrade to Dolby Atmos. Attached is the new layout. Room is 14ft wide x 16.5ft long x 8ft-10" high. The existing room was purpose-built 10 years ago with Kinetics isomer clips to provide "floating walls and ceiling", cavities were filled with fibreglass insulation, and two layers of sheetrock was installed, with a 1" Kinetics KUA-100 acoustical foam sandwiched between the sheet rock. Acoustical caulking was also used seal the room. My only concern is the 3 window openings. Equipment is as follows: Existing (to be reused): Subwoofer - B&W ASW608 (repurposed as rear subwoofer) (200W, 32-140Hz, 90dB) Ceiling Speakers - Proficient Audio C850 - 4 of them (repurposed as oversea Atmos speakers) (175W, 28-22kHz, 92dB) Dish Hopper Elite Screens TE92HC2 Proficient IW550 In-Wall Front Speakers (125W, 60-20kHz, 88dB) Samsung PN60F8500 Plasma TV (giving trouble - needs to be replaced) To Purchase: Denon AVR-X4400H Receiver Optoma UHD65 4K Projector Klipsch RP-280F Front Speakers (see above) Klipsch RP-450CA Center Channel Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer Klipsch RP-250S as side surround speakers Klipsch RP-150M or RP-160M as rear surround speakers. LG B7A OLED 4K 65" TV Acoustic Treatments covers for the 3 windows. Questions: 1) As you can see from the diagram, the rear surrounds cannot be mounted on the floor (on speaker stands), because of the entrance door. Would it be okay to mount the RP-160M's on the wall (near to the ceiling) and point downwards to the listening area? Would this be overpowering to the listener sine they are monopole speakers. 2) For this size room, shower I use the RP150M or RP160M for rear surround? 3) Proficient In-Wall IW550 - not sure if to use these as my fronts or go for the Klipsch RP280F ? 4) Due to limitation on front floor space, my plan is to put the Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer inside the middle section of the credenza (it will fit). Any concerns on sound quality? Also any comments on location of the B&W 8" subwoofer at the back right corner of the room (see diagram), 5) Any further ideas on acoustical treatments that would noticeably enhance the sound? 6) From the diagram, you will see that the In-ceiling C850 speakers need to be moved to meet the placement requirements of Dolby Atmos. The front ones don't need to move to far. Can I get away with leaving them where they are or should I move them? 7) As you can see, the entrance door is along the opposite wall to the projector screen. This poses a problem in the day and affects the viewing. Thinking of putting a black curtain along the door but this would be very annoying to go through every day. Any other suggestions? 8) Are the speakers chosen too big for this room? Info so can you suggest other Klipsch models? Thanks alot, Anthony
  19. Hello, Current speaker setup, RF-82 Fronts RC-62 Center RS-52 Surrounds RS-42 Backs SVS PB12 Sub I also have a spare set of R-14M Bookshelf’s I picked up. I recently made the transition from a Denon 3808CI 130w 1080p AVr to a Denon X4400H 125w 4K AVR (Atmos and DTS:X). I am unable to put any speakers on my ceiling as it is sloped (no attic space) and has a large beam running down the center of the room. Actual Atmos upfiring speakers wouldn’t be worth it based on the left to right slope of the ceiling. The room is about 22’ long (65” OLED at one end and 20’ wide. Sitting position is about 12’ from the screen and RS-52 Surrounds are slightly behind seating on side walls. I would like the best setup I can get for Atmos and DTS:X material given he limitations I have. Which of these options would be better utilizing what I have ($ cutoff by wife...), Option 1: RF-82 Fronts R-14M set as Front Heights above RF-82s RC-62 Center RS-52 Surrounds RS-42 set as Backs SVS PB12 Sub Option 2: RF-82 Fronts R-14M set as Front Heights above RF-82s RC-62 Center RS-52 Surrounds RS-42 set as Rear Heights SVS PB12 Sub Thanks for any advice!

  20. Hi everyone. After reading so many threads here and AVS forum and elsewhere, I have not found an answer to my question about the reference premiere's. I have a largish room for a home theater 16 ft across the short wall where the screen is going (Sony VPLVW385ES due this week) and 100 ft on the long dimension but open on the other 2 sides (for now). AVR Marantz SR8012 coming this week so it can handle 7.2.4 setup. Now to choose the correct speakers for a Dolby Atmos setup. RP280FA x 2 in front, RP450CA center, R115SW x 2 for subs. Now the real question is the sides and rears. Ceiling is 8 ft and flat but I can't but speakers in the ceiling. Would anyone consider using the RP250S surrounds for sides and another pair of the RP280FAs in the back? Elsewhere I have seen the RP260F with the RP140Sa atmos add-ons used for rears but that seems like it is actually slightly more expensive and not necessarily better. I wouldn't be averse to not using the RP250S surrounds as sides since they are dipoles and going with one of the floor standing models instead (what about the R26FAs??). I think I have information overload! Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
  21. My Audyssey microphone was DOA and I've been patiently awaiting it's replacement. I figure I can go the manual route for now. My setup is as follows and I was hoping you guys could help me with some of the finer details in terms of the crossovers, large/ small, +-db settings etc.., just to get a guy started. -Denon 4300H Receiver -Klipsch R-26 towers (x2) for my L & R (and currently setup as center) -Future state-Klipsch R-15M bookshelf (single) for center once we get our console table in place under the TV . Side Note- would it be blasphemous to have it on its side laying down to save on height? -Bose 161 (x2) for surrounds (hung on basement soffit ~6.5ft from floor nearly directly to the left/right of seating position) -Monoprice Caliber Series 8" ceiling speakers (x2) -Klipsch R-10SW Subwoofer (10") (x1) The main seating position is about 12ft from the towers and the sub, 7ft from the surrounds and 7ft from the heights. 12AWG connecting it all in wall. I’m setting this up as a 5.1.2 Atmos setup for movies and some gaming. Any advice is welcome. I’m a pretty technical individual, but not so much in the audio realm. So I can follow instructions, but coming up with the finer points myself will be a learning process. Thanks folks!
  22. Howdy all - Just updated my receiver, want to put an extra pair of RB5-2's to use as front/upfired Atmos l/r channels, but can't seem to find a stand that would allow them to fire at the correct angle and still be stable. Anybody have any suggestions? I'm thinking 30-45 degree angle at least, lying on its back. They'd be sitting on top of RF5's. 'Preesh any ideas. Dan O
  23. I am considering adding ceiling speakers to a premier 5.1 system. Given the limited amount of atmos content and considering I watch mostly netflix and Dish based content. How do the Atmos systems perform with 5.1 audio? Is there any value here?
  24. 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?
