RP-150m in a condo

Hi,

Long time lurker here who just decided to create an account. I'm still a bit new to the idea of creating a proper home theatre setup, so I wanted to reach out to the community to get a bit of help. It's become overwhelming since there are so many things to consider and research.

 

I currently live in a condo with 18 feet ceilings (I have a feeling this *might* have an impact). I was looking into getting a pair of RP-150m's for the mains and then a R-25c for the center channel. Since I live in a condo, I decided skip out on the subwoofer as I don't want to disturb the neighbors with bass.  Is this 3.0 setup an overkill for a condo since I won't be able to leverage it's full power? If not, is it adequate enough for movies and video games?

 

I've heard great things about these speakers, but I'm not sure if there's anything else I need to consider especially with high ceilings.

Actually your setup is one where large floor standing speakers can work well to fill the large room but not be bass heavy.  If bookshelf speakers are used i would find a pair of rp150m or rp160ms with a rp250c.  They are a nice upgrade from the r15ms if the price bump fits the budget.

I second George's suggestion about auto volume levelling. I have a Klipsch rsb-11, and love the night time mode. It turns off the sub, and limits and/or cmpresses dynamics. Given the sometimes excessive dynamic range of some videos, it comes in very handy when watching late at night. Keep the neighbors happy.
