  1. I'm building a new house and I'm installing 5 R-2650-CSM II IN-CEILING SPEAKER for the sound system in the great room; 3 in the front and two in the back. What subwoofer option is the best to pair with these speakers? Bonus question - what AV receiver characteristics should I look for with these speakers? Thanks,
  2. Hi I've searched far and wide for an answer to this, but haven't had any luck yet... Is there a receiver on the market which lets me play music through more than only two channels? I don't want to play it in surround, because music through surround mode gives zero sound. I want the sound that normally comes through the two front channels to come through my entire 5.1 setup. In regards to this, im not interested in downloading software that enables music services such as spotify to play with 5.1 or adding amps to my system. Im asking if there is a "all-in-one" solution, such as a receiver, that lets me play music through more than two channels?
  3. Hi! I am building a home theater system (7.2), and time has come for me to choose a receiver. It should be mentioned that I am a newbie and learning as I go. From what i've gathered, its really important that your receiver delivers the right amount of wattage required by the speaker at the correct ohm. My system consists of the top of the RP line, and it would seem that every speaker are within their watt cont/peak at 150/400w at 8 ohm. My problem with this is that I can't find any receivers at all that even supports at least 150w at 8 ohm per channel, and these receivers are around the 3000$ mark. Am I going about this "Receiver-speaker-wattage"-thing wrong or am I just in the wrong price class?
  4. 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?
  5. Hello! Was gonna see if I could get some help. I’m looking at getting these speakers and I am completely lost on what receiver I should get. (Think I’ve narrowed it down to Yamaha) Also, does the combo of speakers work well together or would you recommend something different? How would y’all recommend setting them up for best surround sound experience? This will be mostly for movies and sports. The area they are they will be has a wall running down one side and opens up on the other side and back.

  6. Hey all, I am having a home built and Included with it is Klipsch CS-16C speakers in the living room for a 5.1 surround sound setup. I am currently looking for the right receiver to purchase to power these speakers. Can someone please help me out and give me a recommendation for a good receiver? Thank you in advance. -RUKUSrex CS-16C-Spec-Sheet.pdf
  7. I currently have an Integra DTR 50.4 that is powering a pair of Palladium 17B bookshelves and a Palladium 27C center (my sub is in flux and I don't have rears at the moment). My primary use for my setup is TV and movies (95%) and then audio (streaming from pc, spotify, or phono). My audio guy is strongly in the camp that the Integra is not fully showcasing the speakers as well as some other receivers could. He's suggesting either the NAD T787 with the newest HDMI MDC installed or an Audio Control AVR-7 or AVR-9. These receivers are definitely a step up in audio quality from the Integra I currently have, but I'm concerned that they don't focus as much on video and thus I might run into problems (looking at forum posts, people complain of HDMI handshake issues and ARC issues). He is also trying to persuade me to stay away from some Asian manufacturers (Marantz, Denon, Onkyo/Integra, Yamaha, Pioneer) as he claims the audio will not be as warm. I don't have a ton of data points to work with from personal experience. If anyone here has insights on a suitable sounding AV receiver that will mostly be handling video and dialogue over stereo sound, I would be greatful for your input.
  8. New To The Community Hello Everyone: I wanted to know if the Denon x3400h has enough to power my setup? Aside from the x4400h & Onkyo tx-rz820 are my other choices for receivers. If you have any other recommendations on receivers please do. As for my current build I have Fronts - 160m Center - 250c Sub - r-10sw Rear Surround - 240s I know you lose out on some channels on the Denon's or so I read something like that. I'm currently running a Sony str-1070dn as my receiver. I know it isn't the greatest but I found it for 120 bucks a while back. Thanks for everyone's time & advice.
  9. 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.
  10. To start off, my wife and I are having a baby in the next couple of weeks, and I need something at home that will operate without any future headaches. That being said, this relic from days gone by needs to find a new home! I bought it locally (OKC) a few months ago and after some research, I've uncovered that I have a partially restored unit. Some coupling caps have been replaced along with a few more parts, the electrolytic capacitors are still original and need to be replaced. The output tubes still have some life left in them, and all of the preamp tubes work great. This amp has very minimal noise in it which was a high priority for me in the tube search. It sounds unbelievable. It hurts to let it go, but someone with a technician background would be able to enjoy this amp like I never could. The wooden case is the only obvious quirk. An older gentleman owned this Fisher since its heyday and developed quite the attachment to it. At some point, it no longer fit inside of a furniture piece in his home so he routed the corners off of the back of the case in an effort to force the fit. I'm calling it a folk art piece. Its the back of the receiver so you don't ever see it regardless. Apart from that, the ink on the faceplate has worn off in some places and in its place, some tiny white labels sit in the on and off positions on the front, and on the inputs on the back. You can vaguely see these in the photo provided. I can furnish you with some more photos if you're interested. I'll let her go for $600 OBO.
  11. 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
  12. Hi! I'm completely new to all of this, and would appreciate any information you all can provide I got a pair of Klipsch R-15M Bookshelf Speakers and it requires an amp/receiver, so I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions that might work best with the R-15M? (I plan to purchase the amp through Amazon if possible) Links would be helpful too! Thank you so much!
  13. Hey all i have a question I am purchasing the following speaker system and would like to know if my Yamaha RX-V683 receiver will be enough to power them. This is mainly for Home theater my room is 20x15 with the couch about 10-15 ft from my TV. I do listen to music on occasion but not very often. I don't want to be blown out of my chair but i want clean crisp sound The speakers that are inbound to my house are: (1) Pair of Klipsch RP-280F Floorstanding Loudspeakers (1) Pair of Klipsch RP-250S Surround Speakers (1) Klipsch RP-440C Center Channel Speaker (1) Klipsch R-115SW 15-Inch Powered Subwoofer
  14. Hi everybody! I’m trying to determine if the R-15m bookshelf speakers (that are 50% off right now!) would be suitable rear channels for my home theater setup. My primary concern is that my receiver may not be powerful enough to drive them along with the other speakers, and that I would potentially damage my speakers. The receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR555. The specs are here: https://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR555&class=Receiver but I’m having trouble interpreting them when comparing them with Klipsch specs. This receiver is currently powering the RP-150m bookshelf speakers as the front left/right channels and the RP-250c center channel. I’d like to add the R-15m as the 2 back channels for a true 5.1 experience but I’m not sure if I’d be exceeding recommended wattage for this receiver. Help! I asked for advice last month about how to set up my subwoofer and the advice proved to be super helpful. Thanks in advance to any advice you can give!
  15. Hi everyone, first time posting. I am putting together a 5.1 system to compliment a 4k tv and had a few questions about picking speakers. I currently have a subwoofer and a pair of R-15m's as part of a stereo system that I want to expand into the 5.1 system. I was planning on getting a pair of RP-250s' as my rear speakers. My main issue is picking center channel speakers and whether I need to upgrade my R-15m's to something beefier to match the center channel. I was looking at either the RP-450C and the RP-440C, I am not sure if there is much of a difference or if they will be overkill with just the R-15m's. So my question is, which center channel would be more advisable, and do I need to upgrade from the R15's? If I need to upgrade, does the left and right channel speaker need to match with the center, or does it not matter? For example, would it be advisable to pair the RP-450C with the RP-280F's and the RP-440C with the RP-260F's or does it not make a huge difference? I am also trying to pick a receiver, but it is difficult to differentiate between receivers. I am mainly looking at sony 7.2 receivers with HD audio, are they all mostly the same, or are their certain features I should look out for on them? And one last bonus question, are the RP-250's better rear channel speakers than regular bookshelf speakers? I am still learning how they work. I appreciate any advice you guys can give me.
  16. So im buying a package deal with 2 x RF-82 II, 2 x RB-61 II and 1 x RC-62 II. Now i need a receiver thats powerfull enough to drive this set up. Can anyone tell if im underpowering with a Marantz SR7011?
  17. Hello all, I'm pretty new to the audio community in terms of speakers and I need a little help. What receiver would be best for my setup in the 300-500 dollar range. I want a receiver more preferably on the music side instead of movies. My speakers are all Klipsch and I attached their specs. The speakers are the following: RP-150M bookshelf speakers RP-250C center channel speaker RP-240S surround speakers R-110SW subwoofer 254090.pdf R-110SW_-_Spec_Sheet_635466333600152000.pdf RP-150M-Spec-Sheet.pdf RP-250C-Spec-Sheet.pdf
  18. 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!
  19. Hey Community, I have been looking for a replacement for my Technics sa-818 that has been giving me issues with repair cost greater than I am willing to spend. My last two vintage receivers have cost $ to maintain so I am looking to purchase new / refurb with a $700 budget. I have been looking at the following. Emotiva PT-100 + A300 Yamaha A-S801 Marantz PM7005 Marantz PM6006 I use the DAC in my Pioneer N-50 so if you have any preamp suggestions that do not include a DAC I would be ok with it. System includes a U-turn Orbit turntable with a Grado Prestige Blue1, Pioneer DV-45A for CD/SACD playback, Pioneer N-50, Forte ( Bob Crites TI diaphragms & updated crossovers) Any thoughts our suggestions?
  20. Hi, I'm new here, my name is Ilse. I live in The Netherlands. I have a question and hopefully somebody can help me. I bought two Klipsch speakers RP 280f. I already have the centre speaker RP 440c Is my receiver (Sony Str dn 860) strong enough for the new speakers and the centre speaker? With kind regards, Ilse
  21. Hi! I'm looking for some advice on receivers, I'll admit my HT audio knowledge is rudimentary.. (working on fixing that ) A while back I had bought the Onkyo TX-NR646 for its Atmos compatibility, this was when I had the smaller size of Klipsch RP speakers. I've since upgraded my setup to 5.2.2 - L/R Klipsch RF 7II, center RC-64II, surround RS-62II, atmos RP-140SA and 2x SVS SB2000 subs. I realize Klipsch speakers are considered conservative as far as power is concerned, but would I notice an improvement in audio quality if I upgraded my receiver? I was considering the Denon AVR-X4200W to this end as well as being able to step up to 7.2.2 I will admit, it's hard for me to imagine these speakers sounding better. When my SO and I first listened to them they took our breath away. It truly felt like there weren't speakers in the room, rather the MOVIE was happening in the room! We're now Klipsch fans for life. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Also, I mainly use the speaker setup for movies and games.
  22. 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
  23. I wasn't actively looking but I had my eye out for a CR-2040 for years. I finally picked one up here recently with a case that was scuffed up a bit and a few marks on the face plate. I removed the knobs and did a light treatment with the magic eraser to find that the face place and controls were perfect! Hmmm... I'm going to have to make the cabinet match! Anybody who thinks Yamaha doesn't have low end hasn't heard the 2040! It was sounding pretty good but there was that familiar grainy sound that I've heard from other tired old caps so I took the electronics to @paul79 at Many Moons Audio for a complete rebuild. While the innards are at Paul's for a spa treatment that will give me plenty of time to get the cabinet fixed up. Well, that empty cabinet has been staring at me long enough so I guess I will get started.
  24. Hello everyone! *ABOUT ME, SKIP DOWN FOR MY TOPIC* New to the forum, but I actually just got into Klipsch! My step dad has had the Quintet III for years now and he loves it and I admit it sounds damn good. Before I have what I have now, I owned the Polk Audio RM6750 surround system. It was a basic 5.1 channel with a small subwoofer. I used all of the surround speakers but never used the sub or the center channel. After hearing my step dad's set up, and with his Klipsch Sub10, I ended up building my own. It was during the time I loved building speakers, so I ordered the woofer off of eBay, bought a plate amp and port, and built it to the spec's of his. It turned out great! Also I custom built my center channel with speakers from HiVI, and crossover'd them. I had them all running through an older Yamaha 6.1 Receiver! Currently, this is what I have: Current Setup Klipsch R-15m --- Mains (2) Klipsch R-14m --- Surrounds (2) Custom HiVI --- Center Polk Audio PSW505 --- Subwoofer Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH --- Receiver HISENSE 55h8c 4k --- Television So overall, my setup is decent however there are some problems with it. I've been looking everywhere for a suitable replacement for the receiver and I've come up with nothing in my price range really. The guy is a beast what can I say! The sound is very clear, it pushes 140 watts at 8 ohms which is rare to find because everything now says "WOW 250 watts in every channel! *in fine print* at 6 ohms! So now reduce the power a lot to get the 8 Ohms. The THX certification is a nice feeling to have even though the speakers aren't, and just overall it's very easy to use. Problem being, I'm trying to get a little more modern. The Elite only has HDMI 1.3 I believe, which doesn't support 4K pass-through. My question being, what would be a good upgrade receiver wise to give me similar sound/plus having 4K pass-through? OR, I have been considering if I went with a power amplifier and a cheaper receiver to do the same thing while allowing me to get 4K pass-through. I have looked into Emotiva, Rotel, Parasound and so on and all of them are quite expensive of course for a 5 Channel amp. Is any of this worth it? Or should I continue just running all of my stuff to my TV then exporting through optical? Thank you for reading, hope you have a good day! - Josh
  25. I have a Denon AVR-X3300W receiver. Here is a link to the specifications on the reciever if it is needed to answer the question. https://www.crutchfield.com/S-SO67d6QfvZx/p_033AVX3300/Denon-AVR-X3300W-IN-Command.html It is capable of 7.1 surround or 5.1.2 Atmos according to the manual. It has 7 Channels, 105 Watts RMS, and 4 Ohm Impedance. The speakers I have right now are as follows: 2xRP-260F (Front left and right) 1xRP-440C (Center) 2xRP-240S (Surround left and right) 1xR-115SW (Sub) I was wanting to hook this system up in a larger room in the basement. This is a larger room so I was hoping to add 2xRP-150M speakers in the rear and 2xCDT-5650-CII in ceiling speakers. I was hoping that the channels going to the two surround 7.1 speakers in the back could also push the in ceiling speakers however I don't want to under power any of the speakers or hurt the receiver. Does anyone know if this is possible to do or would i need to buy a new receiver to accomplish this task?
