  1. ok if its a rental then looks wont matter so much so improvise. you can mount 2 book shelf speakers on top of your front towers, angle them up to act like the bouncy speakers people buy.. or just buy some cheap pioneer bouncy speakers. or you could make 2 tall stands, paint the same colour as the walls so they blend in, sturdy bases of course and mount 2 books on top, angle them down to the listening position. not much else you can do except set up the 5.1 system correctly so it gives the great sound a simple 5.1 can give. i did in my small room and its very good using
  2. i didnt say you cant do it, just never heard of having 2 atmos but not having surrounds. you reeally dont have to spend much on atmos speakers if you already have 2x klipsch book shelf just use them as surrounds and buy 2 2nd hand speakers for atmos. dont need to buy klipsch or any expensive speaker. 2 book shelf will do. https://forums.audioholics.com/forums/threads/why-cant-bookshelf-type-speakers-be-used-for-atmos.114761/ https://www.soundandvision.com/content/can-i-repurpose-back-surround-speakers-dolby-atmos
  3. if your looking for an atmos set up you really need to have at least the 5.1 lower level of sound usually at ear level, then atmos speakers form the upper sound level. why would you not have the surround channels in place?
  4. do not change the selector to 4 ohms... leave it at 8 ohms. just too many to list https://www.audioholics.com/audio-amplifier/impedance-selector-switch-1 https://www.avsforum.com/threads/should-i-change-the-impedance-to-6-ohms-on-my-avr.3061864/ https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/181902-denonmarantz-avr-impedance-setting-4-6-8-ohm/ https://www.hometheatershack.com/threads/speaker-impedance-setting-on-receivers.37466/
  5. here you go, at least you can audition it https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/ferntree-gully/home-theatre-systems/projector-screen-130-inch/1266075803 do your own research.
  6. they are a cheap import, many with them seem to be happy but yours has obviously failed what quality control they have... refund
  7. i was under the impression that when using 2 subs one has phase set to "0" and one set to "180" but thats just how mine are done. i am a fan of the first sub position behind the seating, near seating in fact. then the other can go at the front etc. also when doing the auto set up turn the auto/on to on, not auto.. then leave it on. i dont trust the auto on any sub. dont be afraid to try different sub positions, a small move here or there can make a big difference.
  8. over 12" subs.. try klipsch adelaide speakers krix velodyne svs osborn just to name a few
  9. must be looking to build post count so can sell something.. cut and paste with no actual response, nice one. as for krix.. horns for HT the rest dont matter.
  10. haha part time klipsch owner here.. the same over pricing applies to all klipsch products sold in Oz. maybe add 35% to that $2k price. 🙂
  11. can i ask who on ebay you ordered from? i gave up on anyone in Aust. and got mine from spandex world in the U.S. thats who just about all diy people use on AVS forums. what pj have you got? not yet set up as still re modelling the room.
  12. why do you want 2 subs left and right of mains? standard way 2 subs are advertised but reality may say place one behind your seating.. always works better for me and you have audyssey xt32. anyway you are in Vic so just buy this https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/skye/speakers/svs-pb-12-plus-subwoofer-great-condition/1266333026 use with existing sub.
  13. just to confirm warranty is dependent on original purchase receipt as per yamaha website.
  14. it states that audition is not possible.. i would suggest a buyer at least turns it on.. i learnt the hard way buying another svs sub
  15. so this is a 2.1 system? sub choice is interesting if for music as that sub gets very ave ratings from users, but can mean little if it works for you. the thing is down firing are usually for movies and usually placed on a hard "slab".. ie: thick piece of hardwood or a large paving stone etc. try as suggested and centre the set up, to far to the left. try the sub behind your seating. is there an avr in your set up? what auto EQ does it have?
  16. movies = ported, get the svs pb2000 pro or buy a 2nd hand pb3000.
  17. have always looked at that equation used by many many many people but here is a different version just use your ears to decide.
  18. dont want to be negative but.. "packed well"? where is the corner protection, just a few bits of card board with bubble wrap. would have made some corner supports from polystyrene at least or they should have those very thick cardboard ones at the very least. used those idiots just once and ended up with a forklift tong thru the box.
  19. thanks Almikel, great reply much appreciated. well done op seems like a nice choice.
  20. so you feel say 2x 15" sealed subs, for a diy noobie, is a much easier project. i have actually joined avs forums and researched some diy but what talk about is not cheap here and most of the technicalls go over my head easily... is there an aust. site to get the info from ie what driver, box size/materials etc that relate to gear here we can actually get.. i mean parts express hundreds of $$$ for a driver, come on.
  21. hmm so this replaces bass shakers in effect. can it be retrofitted to a 13" riser i already have? sorry i looked at avs link and lately all this stuff goes over my head. what powers it? my shakers run off an old yammy avr.
  22. think a bit more detail is required about room sizing and speaker placement vs tv? seating position. seriously seem to have the sub covered, the fronts in HT lucky to do 20% of the work so what centre are you running? most manufacturers do not "match fronts with centre correctly anyway.
  23. hmm fair enough, i would be just as wary of a charge that became part of the repair. all repairs are sus these days unless you actually watch them do it... thats for anything
