Cool. Keep tweaking when you get new ideas. About the channel A/B; if you want to go quadraphonic with that you can; just position speakers correctly, so front left aligning with channel B's front right and vice versa. That way any positional and panning audio will be correct in the stereo image.
This is exactly how I have it setup.
To tell you the truth as an old audiophile I just loved quadraphonic sound back in the day it was AMAZING! and since I know that my living room doesn't support full on Dolby surround sound ( because of the way its laid out) I went ahead and setup 7 channel stereo on purpose, Giving me the "Simulated" quadraphonic sound. I say simulated because it technically no longer exists.
Does anyone remember the ledzeplin 8 track tape and the alpine 8 track quadraphonic deck? I paired that with a Lafayette tube amp and JBL speakers. Yeah I'm NOT an Audiophile.

Being an audiophile doesn't mean you need to spend a ton of money on your setup. However, part of being an audiophile is learning and knowing how to get the best sound out of your system... whatever parts you may have. All we are saying is all 4 speakers across the front like that isnt remotely optimal for proper sound and sound staging. :)
I agree there. But remember one also has a room to work within.
The main part of being an audiophile is tuning in the room and system. I have it setup perfectly for 7 channel stereo sound. Tuning the speakers is done now tuning the system. Trimming the base and treble things like that.

Just a side note for everyone. The TV is NOT mounted "OFF" I have it on a swing arm it is just pushed over to the side because I sit ( THIS FING SECTIONAL COUCH!) literally to the left of the entire thing!
So in order for me to "see" it better I just pushed it more to the front of my face. and it still isn't "IN front of me"
So here is what it all looks like now.

Video Card(s) Asus Strix 3090 with front and rear active full cover water blocks
Storage I'm bound to forget something here - 250GB OS, 2 x 1TB NVME, 2 x 1TB SSD, 4TB SSD, 2 x 8TB HD etc...
Display(s) 3 x Dell 27" S2721DGFA @ 7680 x 1440P @ 144Hz or 165Hz - working on it!!
Case The big Thermaltake that looks like a Case Mods
Audio Device(s) Onboard
Power Supply EVGA 1600W T2

Keyboard Razer something or other....
VR HMD No headset yet
Software Windows 11 OS... Not a fan!!
Benchmark Scores I've actually never benched it!! Too busy with WCG and FAH and not gaming! :( :( Not OC'd it!! :(
I'm lucky to have a fairly simple room for where my cinema is setup to, it does take over my front room a little and Sophia loves to try and pull at the speaker cable for the surround speakers sometimes but it works well for me and has done for 9 years I've lived here :) I've had the same setup at various different houses before hand and it's never felt great there. That said, I'd love to separate out my Hi-Fi to my stand and get a few more consoles on my TV stand as there's no room for anything there much at the moment...

Ah, one day :D

I I just picked up these for my living room, so basically the same setup as you!

Yes, I'm just poking fun at you Trickson. You have an awesome setup. Unfortunately for me, I've gone completely deaf in certain audio ranges and partially deaf in others, so a setup like that would be wasted on me these days. But in my youth, I would have been dooling! Just don't turn it up too high, or you'll end up like me.

what do you think of them?

The main thing I can hear with these speakers is the distance from the wall.
I have tested at various positions and found for my room the distance is 20" from the wall, this is perfect giving me the best in sound.

What kind of unit do you have?
I find that the Denon AVR 3802 is more than powerful enough to drive them and the Denon quality of sound is really showing through finally, A great AVR system needs great speakers.
I am MORE than sold that Klipsch is hands down the BEST speaker for the money you can get and any one that wants true quality "AUDIOPHILE" sound.
Klipsch keepers of sound! Denon Where sound is perfected!

I used my audiophile memory my skill my hearing and a tape measure.
It's not at all hard to tune in a room once you have the right speakers. And it doesn't take a pro to install. Hell you wont trip on or see wires all over the place at all.

Nothing fancy, an old NAD T748, some old Mission M series, and an old Monitor Audio FB-210, and an old Tannoy 8 inch sub, and an old Monster HDP1800 line conditioner. I've got some Mirage towers tucked away. I bought them after I heard them on a Classe amp, when I was anti AVR. I would like to build another stereo again, just Left and Right, and maybe a sub. This setup still rattles the house, and my kids come first. One day I will upgrade everything.

I'm sure I could tell a difference, but it's just not worth the money for me anymore unfortunately.

Speaking of Klipsch here's a letter company founder Paul Klipsch wrote. The "MGW" power amp is a typo, it's supposed to be BGW. He used the BGW 250C as his personal reference power amp for evaluating the speakers his company made. I have a 250B, two 250C's and two 250D's in my BGW collection along with a 500D, 750B and 7500 Proline II. I did Pro audio for several years and 99% of my main system is used recording studio gear.

One thing is for sure I can now hear the singers BREATHING! It's Amazing what great speakers can do. I can hear things I haven't heard in a long time since my Polk audio setup really.

Now I know I'm going to ware out my tape deck! I can't stop listening to it!

have you looked into dolby atmos, you would need a new reciever, but with 10 speakers you could make a good atmos system, well you would need some of the speakers on the ceiling. google dolby atmos setups and they have tons of room diagrams with recommended speaker locations for many different kinds of rooms. Also I would get a few bi-pole speakers for your surround, klipsh makes them and so does polk and fluance for cheap. nice bongs btw,lol. one more thought, do you have another room in the house , one with 4 walls enclosed or a basement that you could re-purpose into a theater room? your right, that room isnt ideal, no biggy though

Yes and no I am not going to atmos. It's just not what I want. I just like nice clear clean sound I don't need some over head field of sound not in this room. That is good for big theaters not living rooms.
IMHO Atmos is more of that snake oil they try to sell you. Unless you are watch movies with plains or birds or crap flying over your head them Atmos speakers are just dead drivers with a powered amp that is not driving them. LOL. Tell me on what planet do they dub music in Dolby atmos? LOL SNAKE OIL!
So no that is just one setup I can not buy into. Nor will I be cutting into my ceiling and installing speakers this is not a department store.

From the size of the driver's you would never guess such BIG clean clear sound can come out even at low volume they sound grand and tall big and deep.
I've been eyeing these for about 2 years now. I've never seen speakers made from a ceramic metallic material before.
And the size? All this big base and tall notes from 5" and 6" drivers? No popping, Clipping/cracking and most of all no distortion just NONE!
You wont need a ton of power to drive them they sound just as fantastic at low volume.
I am truly blown away at the quality and the price. The Klipsch Reference Premier series speakers are hands down the best speakers the average human audiophile can buy.
I plan to replace all my speaker now with Klipsch reference series.
They put a massive amount of R&D in these speakers (That is my guess).

I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting TRUE audiophile sound that wont cost you $70.000.

I also need to add a bit of a side note here. As my Denon is the system the Computer is the Sound card. And this I'm still tuning in.
