Advice for fronts for home theater in a 2nd floor condo

Recommended Posts

I have a 21 by 11 room with 10 ft ceilings and a 65 inch tv mounted on my wall. Its a condo so I will be sitting about 10 feet from the screen. Im thinking of klipsch RP 8000 or 6000 as fronts.Would the 8000 be overkill for someone living on second floor? I love the piano black in this model but I may have to settle for the RP 6000 because of my living space. I wish the 6000 came in piano black. Yhanks for your help.

how tolerant are your neighbors?  and if you need help moving stuff upstairs might be more pertinent

actually.. Go ahead . Piss the neighbors off.  Getting equipment upstairs is the challenge. I remember a thread on a member getting a pair of LS [or was it some MWMs?] up some stairs.

Would go with the 8000's as you may often wonder about them versus the 6000's...

Yes, welcome to the forum...

doesn't matter what you get...

I still wonder what I missed jumping from entry level bookshelf to LS. No in between.

Is it a nearly sound-proof condo, or does it leak like a sieve?  In some, you can stand near a window and not hear heavy traffic right outside.  Any speaker with good bass, and any subwoofer, will need an isolation pad under it, to prevent vibration from being transmitted directly.

Thanks to all on my entry post. My condo has good soundproofing but Im retired so  this whole building is mine every weekday afternoon so im going all out. Rp 8000f it is and hopefully in Piano black.( want the look to back up the great sound). May wait till Black Friday to see any deals that might come along. Ill post a picture when I get these babies home.

Another question. How important is tweeter ear height? Sitting on center area of my couch in the hot seat facing tv screen my ears will be perfectly aligned to tweeters of the 6000 but about 4 inches below the tweeters of the 8000. Should this be taken into consideration when choosing speakers?  Thanks

It may be a good balance between the mid speaker and tweeter.

At approx. 10 foot distance, the balance of the overall speaker would likely negate that impression...8000's way to go between the two of them... opinion. The physical comes into play equals more presence of sound, even at lower volume.
