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:

Front:40Hz
Center: 50Hz
Surround:120Hz
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.

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.

Here are some photos of the front of the setup. A photo of the new 820's without the grill, I have to say I like the design of the new 820's or the previous R28F. And a pic of the new Atmos speakers

Picked up this super clean set of Klipsch KG 5.5 recently...Not too shabby, a bit heavy in the upper mids for my taste...that can be tamed through some EQ action.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the RP 260f's and RP 280f's.
Is it basically the 280's have more bass? Are the mids and highs the same on both models?
I plan on using with a sub at some point and would rather go for the slightly cheaper 260f's if bass is the only difference.

BTW the 280f's are on ebay (UK) for around 850 sheets. Seems quite reasonable compared to what some other places are selling them for.

I had a question. Am I going to notice a huge difference in the highs? This is my setup. Tekton design pandragons and double impact center. I just ordered/added the rp 250s for my surrounds and the r-14s for rear. I usually try match all speakers. However this time I didn't and I've heard two opinions on matching. Some say front three and others say all speakers. Looking for opinions on how much of a difference this is going to make. Btw I am still saving for my atmos and its between svs and klipsch as long as they can be mounted. Anyone in here mount the rp-140sa to the wall/ceiling?
Thank you guys.

My understanding is that many people often don't get what they need. I was recently told that I should go a step up. Personally I think that is wise. I have had matching speakers and found even with room correction having trouble hearing some dialogue. Just some advice I received from someone thought I'd pass it on. I think it makes sense as most of a movie is run through the center. Maybe someone else opinion will differ. I'll know soon enough when completing my upgrade. Good luck.

I currently have this center channel https://www.bestbuy.com/site/klipsch...?skuId=6228067

But I'm looking to upgrade. Which one would be considered a sizable upgrade?

The reference premier is a huge upgrade in power (assuming you have the amp for it) and frequency range. It is it worth it? That depends how big your room is to be honest. In a small to medium sized living room, I don't think you'd benefit, though you may hear a difference at high volume. If you had a large dedicated theater room with multiple seats then it's worth the upgrade.

The reference series (non premier) would only be an upgrade if you need more coverage, but would sound the same as your current one.
