Good morning all, I currently have an older Klipsch soundbar. (I believe it is the r10b) This room is fairly large (20x20 w/ 10'6" ceilings) and has large pocket doors on either end that open up to the rest of the main level of the house. The current setup sounds fine as long as I am the only one home. When my wife and son are home there is always background noise that I can't overcome with volume from this sound bar. My question is, will one of the new higher end soundbars perform much better in this situation? (RSB-11 or RSB-14)
Greetings everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I've really wanted to give it a try. About 10 years ago we purchased our first Klipsch 5.1 setup for our living room: L/R - Synergy F-1's (bi-amped on a 7.2 Yamaha) C - Synergy C-2 Sur - Synergy S-1's SW - Sub-12 Open floor dimensions: 24' W x 28' L x 8' H (living room, kitchen, dining room) The setup is great! No complaints, and the sound is amazing in our open floor-plan living room space. I'm very aware that in today's Klipsch world, this is considered entry level into the "floorstander" world. A single 6.5" woofer on the floors, dual 5.25" for the center, and dual 4"' for the surrounds. But this sub I got for a steal and really fills the whole open floor area... even beyond the "living room". NOW... with that said, we are finishing our basement and will have a dedicated family room that is completely separated off from everything else. It has a 5' wide hallway that enters the back of the room. This will have a huge, solid door to close if needed (for sound). The new room will be 16' W x 18' L x 8' H...... So my question is this: How small of a room is considered TOO SMALL for bigger speakers like the RP-280F? I want to maximize my bang for buck. Not just get the biggest speakers because they "fit". We are strongly considering upgrading to the RP line for the basement. I'd like a great home theater experience, but I don't need an overkill. If the biggest, baddest speakers won't sound great in a small room, I don't want to waste my money on them. Does that make sense? We'd like to be able to maximize whatever purchases we decide to make. Thanks in advance! I love the Klipsch sound. :-)
