SPL-150 vs R-115SW

Recommended Posts

Trying to see which one is better?  Seems like Klipsch no longer sells R-115SW and wanted to see if SPL-150 will be any better or R-115SW is still better.

They're about the same thing, the SPL has the improved finish, the new ones do have the thick rubber feet which is nice.  The plinth on the 115 doesn't really gain you anything.

The front mounted LED Power Indicator (Green) is on the front.  I have the R-SW115 and love the sub.  Amazing bass and great build quality in my opinion.

Hello … I heard that the amplifier of the new model has been modified and improved, so many complaints about the R115SW going bad. I don't know what these people do to their subs, maybe they blast it to the extreme for too long? I don't know. I do own a R115SW and it's an amazing sub, no complaints about it, to the contrary. I mainly watch movies with my system and I love the way that the lower frequencies are dispersed equally in my theater room.

Celioguim. would you say subwoofers should be used primarily for movies? i damaged an infinity tss1100  with loud music. so i was wondering perhaps if that was the case

Revisiting this thread looking for more suggestions. 

The R-115SW and SPL-150 are currently both available on Amazon.  $700 for the R-115SW and $900 for the SPL-150, including the WA2 wireless adapter.  The prices are close enough not to matter (especially if I get the WA2 to got with the R-115SW as well).  The upgraded amp on the SPL sounds good.  Anything that really separates the two functionally or audibly?  

 

This will be for in my original version RF-7 home theater setup (RF-7, RC-7, RS-62) 

I'm considering upgrading to RF-7 II or III.  I've heard the III sounds better, but aesthetically I much prefer the II, not to mention it's Cherry finish matches what I currently have, unlike the Natural Cherry on the III.

So two of those for the price of a single SPL-150.  O_O  Not sure about the B-stock risk (going by the description in the ad), but that's really hard to pass up.

Yeah ... concur :D  But if you are like many of us and "hide" your subs it should be OK ??? :( :)    

 

Add-on ... if you PM him, they might be cheaper as he won't have to pay the eBay commission :)
