Klipsch setup : your advice

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

My new home theater room is under construction. It should be 244"x164"x92" (6.15mx4.16mx2.33m).

My primary use would be for watching movies (over 95%).

I'd like a 7.1.4 system (maybe 7.2.4 later we'll see). The receiver will be a Denon AVR-X6700H.

The package I have in mind is

RP6000FB x2, RP-504c x1, RP-402S x4, SPL-150 x1 and CDT-5650-CII x4


What do you think about it? Should I get RP8000 and/or RP-502S instead? Are the CDT-5650 much better than CDT-3650 as atmos speakers?

Any advice would be much appreciated!
Thanks

The system you have listed would sound excellent. Going to the RP8000 might help slightly, and would eliminate any decision whether to go bigger or not. It's always a decision on upgrading or not, the 502s is definitely an upgrade. I'm not very familiar with atmos.

Totally agree with all of this.

 

To save a tad of money, get the setup you stated above but, get a second subwoofer now or in the future.  I personally think a second SPL-15 with have more impact than going a little bigger with the RP8000F's.

According to you, should I go for the RP502s instead of RP402s or save money and buy another SPL-150 later?

I was specifically saying go for the RP6000F's and another subwoofer over the RP8000F's and a single subwoofer.  Of course if budget($$$) allows.

 

Yes the RP502s would be better but have the least amount of immediate impact on your overall sound.

Thanks!

 

I just wanted to make sure that that a 2nd SPL-150 would be a better addon than RP-502s on my overall sound.

 

So regarding to the impact of an upgrade on overall sound :

- 1st choice: adding a 2nd SPL-150

- 2nd choice: switching from RP-402s to RP-502s

- 3nd choice: switching from RP6000 to RP8000

 

Am I right? yes I know I'm a bit slow... 😉

I'd definitely go for the RP-8000f.  You can always add a second sub later.  It's much harder to upgrade towers. 

 

The difference in price between the 402s and 502s is not great, so it's worth it to go for the 502s.  Currently, I have the 502s as surround and 402s as surround back.  I could update the surround back to 502s as well, but with the sound content being so minimal with surround back, I seriously doubt I'm going to hear a difference. Even with the surrounds, I'm not sure how big of a difference there really is between 402s and 502s, although there is a big difference in size between the two.
