  1. Hi. I've set up my Denon + Klipsch home theater setup (no surround speakers for now). I have: Denon AVR-X1500H Klipsch: pair RP-260F, RP-250C, R-120SW I listen 50 % music, 50 % netflix videos. I'm tuning my system to optimal settings and having few open matters to discuss. Most of the online references recommend to trust Audyssey and then leave subs to LFE and 80-100hz and fronts and center to SMALL. When I auto-tune with Audyssey I'm not satisfied with music (concerts), middle tones and strength of fronts (bass and voice is great). Everything is undertuned I think if I listen music (I set settings to Music mode Stereo in Denon), but movies are great to hear (set to Movie mode in denon (dts)). Then I manually tune and set sub to LFE + Mains, fronts to LARGE (leave center to small) my fronts start to respond more to middle tunes, rock concerts and other music is great to listen. What do you recommend would be my optimal settings? I don't want to switch between settings 🙂 I attached some settings and room details.
  2. Hi all, Proud new owner of a brand new set of RP-150m bookshelf speakers paired to a Denon X520BT. Having “ascended” from a 10yo 50€ Hercules 2.1 “system”, I am ecstatic about the new system, it just sounds brilliant, also having had a great deal on both (300€ for the speakers and 150€ for the AVR). Being a complete novice in home audio systems, I’ve been silently rocking back and forth between here and AVSForums, and want to thank all of you for the amazing amount of information available. The following questions remain unanswered though, and I would be very happy to have some feedback. The RP-150m have a sensitivity of 93 dB at 1 meter (correct me if I’m wrong, but 93 dB is quite loud isn’t it?), which as I understand it means that they generate an SPL of 93 dB with just 1W of power. I usually sit close to the speakers (a foot away actually, they are correctly positioned as back channels but are connected as fronts now; I would also add that the system is calibrated for a listening position 10 feet away). As a result, I play them at a very low level, which I suspect is way below 93 dB, closer to say 50 dB. Does that mean that at that level, they are using much less than 1W of power, and if so how much power is being drawn from the AVR? In a more general terms, how would one calculate the power drawn from the AVR? By measuring dB levels and using the sensitivity and logarithm function? The context is also that I am planning on complementing them with a pair of RP-250F floor standers, a RP-250C center channel and a R-110SW (or R-112SW). The monitors will be the back speakers. Will the floor standers really improve music restitution in 2.0? What about music in 5.1, are the processing algorithms good (I am aware of this also being a subjective issue)? And more importantly, I think that this AVR is powerful enough for achieving moderate listening levels on the complete set, do you concur? Expected usage scenarios are music 70% and movies 30%. AVR specs: Power Output (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive) 70 W Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive) 90 W Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 1% 1ch Drive) 130 W Cheers! Rami
  3. Looking to add to my current setup, and I want to stay in the Premiere line. If anyone has the RP-250C or the RP-150M/160M for sale, please let me know and lets talk a price! Thanks in advance! -Craig
  4. 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
  5. Hey All, Finally got my Klipsch 5.1.2 HT ready to roll. I purchased the following and loving it so far. Klipsch RP-250F Fronts Klipsch RP-250C Center Klipsch RP-150M Surround Klipsch RP-140SA Atmos Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301 I was wondering what the optimal crossover point. I have everything set to 80hz right now. I don't feel much movement from the 5.25" drivers. Is that normal? Does anyone suggest a better crossover for these speakers? Thanks Drew
  6. I just bought a pair of RP-280Fs (which I love) and am looking foor some input on a new center channel speaker. The new speaker will be located on top of a Salamander SB-402 cabinet, which is 23.25" wide. Staying within the RP line, the RP-250C would fit with room to spare, while the RP-440C would hang over by a little over an inch on both sides. The RP-450C would hang over too much, so it's out of consideration. Can anyone compare the RP-250C and the RP-440C? The RP-250C would be the best choice strictly based on size, but I could probably get away with the RP-440C if there's a significant advantage (but the wife might not be entirely thrilled). The room is approx. 21'X12' with the main seating approx. 15' from the TV & speakers. Thanks for any input you can offer.
  7. I've been browsing this site quite a bit lately but need some specific advice/opinion on a center channel set up. I am helping my dad look into some upgrades/additions to the home theater system. He currently has the original La Scala's that are in perfect condition and sound great. Last year He got a new receiver, a Yamaha Aventage RX-A1060 to power the system. He has an old, middle of the road Kenwood 5.1 system (not sure of model) sitting around collecting dust so we took the center channel from this and hooked it up to his current system. It does the job and is better than not having a center channel at all, but as you can imagine, doesn't even begin to keep up with the La Scala's. To give you an idea of what it's being used for, this is setup is used 50% to watch sports, mainly football, about 30% to watch movies and about 20% to listen to music. I'm anticipating that more music will be played on this in the near future though. In the future, this system may or may not be expanded upon further. He may be adding rear reference speakers and a sub to go full 5.1, but right now we both feel that a pair of La Scala's along with a solid center channel will be more than sufficient for its current use. I understand that if money was not in the equation, we should be looking at some of the nicest center channel's that Klipsch offers to pair with the La Scala's. Unfortunately that's not in the plan/budget. We are looking at the RC-62 II center channel and the RP-250C. They are both on sale right now and are very similar in price. By looking at these two speakers, I understand that the system won't be hitting its full potential, but I think it will be a good compromise between upgrading from the old Kenwood and breaking the bank with a higher end model. The question is, Is there a substantial difference between the two? Is the RC-62 clearly better and a no-brainer in this situation, or will the difference be negligible? The reason this is even an issue is that the TV is in a built in entertainment center that isn't going anywhere, and within that the tv is on an oak riser to get it to eye level. The RC-62 is just a little bit too big to fit under this riser, while the RP250 will fit just fine. The price in this instance isn't a big deal, they're both in the same price range, but I see that the RC-62 is a good amount more expensive at regular price. If we went with the RC-62, the options are to put it on top of the entertainment center, (which is roughly 5' high so I'm not sure if the angle would make a difference when we're sitting just 10' in front of the tv on a couch), or we could actually use the RC-62 itself as a tv riser instead of trying to fit it under the oak riser we currently have (The question within a question, Is it ok to place the tv directly onto one of these center channel's and use it as a riser? Wasn't sure if you get vibration up into the TV or mess with the speaker at all if this was done.). Neither one is a deal breaker, but the RP-250C will fit in the current set up with any problems, so that is a major perk. Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to make sure there is a full understanding of the setup and what it's being used for, the fitment issues are kind of unique and are the basis for this whole issue.
