Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

Hello everyone!

I was wondering if I could get some advice? I've been considering a pair of the RF-62 II for mains & the RC-62 II for center. The room is quite large (22w X 25d X 10h) & open to hallways & bedrooms. I had to go with in-ceiling surrounds (HTD HD-R65AIM, 89db) due to my room layout. Is it a necessity to change out these ceiling speakers to match up with the Klipsch, since they're rated much higher in sensitivity? Is Audyssey going to kill the Klipsh's dynamics to match the HTD surrounds?

hi all, i am NO PROFESSIONAL. It is just my opinion...1) i am gonna assume that where the ceiling speakers are installed should be considered the "last row" of seating where you or your guess will sit. 2) in regards to (1) you need to create and "envelope" of sound. and have a MLP=main listening position. This is where you sit majority of the time. 3) do your AVR have room correction? if so use it. See if you like the results. search this forum http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...tup-guide.html the results should blend the speakers nicely. 4) remember that your not trying to fill the room. Not unless you are. it is the listening area that you want to have the best sound..... and after you do all and not liking it. Then maybe consider changing the ceiling speakers. but try and and try again, have fun

You may want to look into the Rc-64. My room is smaller then yours but very open and I really like the larger speaker compared to smaller centers I have had in the past.

I'm going with a third RF62 for my center so that all three are identical. I'm hoping it will give me the best sound field.

Good choice! Voice matching will indeed provide the best overall surround performance. I have all Klipsch Heritage speakers and the surround field is impressive.

However, as we know, placement in the room makes a lot of difference. So, placing it in the center will always make it sound different from placement in a corner.

Thumbs up Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

Submitting my RF 82 II towers and SW450.

I love their efficiency but I can't help but think it dampens the dynamic range at lower volumes. A lot of people seem to think these speakers were made for rock or techno, but I prefer listening to softer, uncompressed music at moderate sound levels. Those speakers seem to have a sweet spot in that way. Of course, I was like when I finally came across the frequency response "curve", but I love them nonetheless.
