As far as settings just hook everything up and run your receiver's auto calibration. Set all speakers to small (even the new Klipsch) and crossover at 80 or 100 Hz. You'll have to redo this process when you get the new surrounds. Once you have all Klipsch you should be safe going with 80 Hz on the crossover setting rather than 100.

Thank you all for the welcome. When I ran the auto calibration, it set my speakers the following:

Center: 50Hz
LPF of LFE: 120Hz

I will definitely change the crossover settings

I’m all Klipsched out with my setup. Wanted to get 280Fs, but unfortunately nobody would ship them to Japan, same for the 260Fs and the price here in Japan is absolutely ridiculous. So I went with (4) 250Fs, they replaced decade old Yamaha 325Fs, already had the (4) RP-140SA and the RP-440C. That was the main reason I replaced the Yammys. Recently picked up an additional (2) R-110SW, bringing the sub count up to 4. Each one resides on top of a Auralex Acoustics SubDude-II platform and under one of the 250s with of course the 140s perched atop.

Very pleased with my setup and really have no desire to visit the movie theater anymore here (too damn hot, Japanese seem to be really sensitive to perceived cold air) and just buy new releases as they show up on UHD. Cheaper that way as well.
AV setup (5.4.4) - Yamaha RX-A3070 - Klipsch RP-250F (front and rear) - Klipsch RP-440C (center) - Klipsch RP-140SA (front and rear Atmos) - Klipsch R110SW (front/rear left and right subs) - LG 65 OLED C6P - Oppo UDP-203 - Sony PS4Pro(Japanese) - AppleTV4 (64Gb)

Bedroom: LG 55 OLED C7P - Oppo UDP-203 - Yamaha YSP-5600 - Yamaha SW300B

Ok, typically I am not one for asking opinions, but with the lack of reviews on two particular speakers I'm interested in.... here I am

My original speaker set up: Onkyo SKS-HT870 Home Theater Speaker System (still works great, space is an issue)

What I want to change everything over to:

Left/Right Front Speakers: RP-240D

Center: RP-640D

Surrounds: RP-140D

Speakers are all wall mountable, planning to mount my (UN65H7150) Samsung 65" this weekend to the wall.

My big question: Is it overkill on the center speaker using the 640D instead of another 240D?

Thanks for any input...

I was hoping someone in here could give me some advice. I currently have a pair of RP280F speakers as my main front channel configuration. What would be better for my side surrounds, the RP250's or another pair of RP280's? The RP280's have larger woofers that can handle lower frequencies but I wasn't sure if the RP 250's design might make for a better surround speaker. In terms of quality would it be better to use RP280's for all of my speakers other than the center channel or should I go in a different direction for the best sound? Currently my surrounds are R15's but I am looking to upgrade.
