Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

Well, I FINALLY got my TV Stand built and have my living room set up the way I wanted well enough to get a photo of the new setup, so I can finally post a shot in this thread. I'll take more (including some shots showing the surround and back speakers) once I finish the stand (still need to add doors and a drawer), but meanwhile, here at last is a shot of my Klipsch system:

Klipsch Reference Series RF-35 Floorstanding Loudspeakers
Klipsch Reference Series RC-35 Center Channel
Klipsch RS-41 II Surround Speakers (Side, 7.1 config)
Klipsch RB-42 II Bookshelf Speakers (Back Speakers, 7.1 config)

They're never on when watching TV, just for show (in the photo) or while entertaining (with the TV off).

What are you wanting to know?

Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

I am pretty new when it comes to speakers. i wanted to use them in my 5.1 HT setup. Are there any red flags they have or a certain sub that sounds better, etc.

The RB81 is a nice speaker.
Teamed with a RC62 and your front stage is set.
I have RS41 surrounds and I am very pleased with them.
Any good sub will work just fine.
Newegg has had the RW12 on sale regularly for $300.
At that price it is hard to beat.
If you can budget $550 for the sub the Hsu VTF2-MK4 is a very good option.

Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

I was just looking at that sub. I saw on the back that there were two speaker connections, one for left and one for right. Not sure I understand that.

Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

I started to answer before looking at this picture http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/...K4-Amp-600.jpg and I am glad I looked (the Klipsch sub is the same http://mediacdn.shopatron.com/media/...pdf?1288057256 ).
The high level input is very interesting on both of these subs and quite frankly I do not understand how it is supposed to work.

I understand how this works and this is what I expected to see http://www.outlawaudio.com/products/..._gallery3.html where there are eight binding posts, left / right speaker in (4) and left / right speaker out (4) where this would be used in a stereo only setup with the speakers connected from the amp output to the sub and then from the sub to the speakers. The crossover in the sub would direct the bass to the sub and pass the higher frequencies on to the speakers.

It really does not matter though. Anyone using the sub for a home theater setup would not use the speaker terminals (high level inputs) anyway, you will use the low level input and connect it to the sub out on the AVR with a RCA plug.
The AVR will decode the surround sound from the program material and send the correct sound to each speaker and the subwoofer.

Usually that's designed for older systems that don't have a dedicated sub output. You route the left/right amp output into the sub, and then go from the sub to the speakers. The sub then handles the crossover, handling the low freqs itself and passing the higher freqs to the speakers.

These days receivers have dedicated sub output channels, so that's what you want to use.
