Moving back to Klipsch Speakers


Recommended Posts

After a couple of years away. 


The system will be a 3.2 setup (have Rythmik 15" subs), with the fronts being RP8000F's and the center being an RP504C. I just bought a Denon X4500H (125w/channel per Denon), and powering 3 speakers it looks like it should be good for 110-115w/speaker looking at 3rd party testing of older 4000 series Denons. I assume these speakers are like the previous models where the AVR will push them well over what they generally need? I don't have space for a large Outlaw or Emo amp in my current stand and don't see a point to the smaller Outlaw 5000 with the X4500H only driving 3 speakers. The 3 Klipsch speakers will be crossed at 80hz and small of course.


Glad to be back over on the Klipsch side.

Well, really should be fine with the AVR only. New X4500H is acting up so I enacted a return label, and went ahead and called for the upgrade X6500H japan made model. It has a larger and more robust amp section, so it should be fine. Hopefully it comes working 100%...

My Denon 4200 is running 4 RS-3's - that's about it.  That being said, it's probably kicking out somewhere between 75-95 WPC.  It's more than enough for the rear.  That being said, unless you get an amp that can match at 90 WPC or better, with that setup - I probably wouldn't worry about it too much.  Are you mainly going for a compacted HT setup?
