New here, new upgrades, thoughts/suggestions


Recommended Posts

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.

One issue I see is it is setting the sub at -12. At least on my audysse the most it can reduce the speakers is by -12. So if it say needed to reduce it further, it is maxed out. I would suggest turning the volume down on the sub so when you run audysse it is more in the -1 to -5 rage. 


Also, you are right 40 hz seems too low. I would do as you suggested and try them at 80 hz or 70 hz and see how it sounds.

Yea I thought that was odd as well, I had the sub at 1 o'clock when running audysse. Audysee says to set the sub to 50% but I have read on multiple forums where people suggest setting the SB-2000 to 1-2 o'clock. I will run the first stage of audysee and calculate until I can get it to around -5 range. I have also read a good range for this sub is -5 to -8. Once I get it around that, I will re-run the full calibration. Still unsure how many of the passes should be done, I usually only do 3-4.
