Fives as Left-Right speakers in a 5.1 setup

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow Klipsch lovers,

 

I have an unusual request. I am looking to buy a pair of Fives for their versatility and great sound and use them as a regular stereo pair for music BUT as well as left-right speakers in a small 5.1 setup (all Klipsch speakers).

Therefore I am planning to connect them to an AV receiver along with the subwoofer, center and rear left-right speakers.

However I can't find any specs around the wattage they are expecting for the RCA inputs.

I believe I should use the pre-amp outputs from the receiver so I can let the Fives handle the amplification stage.

 

Any thought/recommendation would be greatly appreciated!

 

Best,

 

Roman

RCA doesn't work that way.  It's a low level pre amp signal.  There's no "wattage."

If they're self powered speakers, then I think you nailed it here.  You'd send them the line signal, not amplified signal.

Sorry for the confusion about wattage. I mixed up my terms. RCA only carries the "raw" signal with no wattage.

 

I kind of answered myself ;-). Pre-amp receiver RCA outputs will do just fine!

 

Thanks!
