What is considered the "Invoice" for the rebate? Is that something that will be on Adorama's site after shipping? So far I've gotten an email confirmation.

I can't afford to screw up a $100 rebate.

Yes, it will ready once your item is shipped. Should be emailed to you or found on Adorama account. You can also request it from their customer support. I attached a sample for your reference.

I bought these a, few months back for like $900. Worth every penny. The dynamics at low volume are great. The Netflix duh-duuuuh when the app starts up on my TV scares my wife everytime.

It should work.A sub is one thing you do not need to match with your speakers, most people don't

AFAIK there is nothing called an atmos subwoofer. Atmos is "ABOVE HEAD" sound like a helicopter flying by.
Subwoofer is just the "punch" like you hear an explosion or whatever.

Not an audiphile as well but its always best to get sound from same family - in case you are planning to get surround speakers. Its due to the timbre of the sound.

If you don't feel the subwoofer has enough punch or don't feel as balanced as you like. You can get a second one [identical] as long as your receiver allows it. Most audiophiles use two subwoofers.

Keep in mind that everything is a channel. Like if your building something crazy like a 9.2.4 atmos system ... thats a 13.2 receiver which ends up pricey.

Thanks. I'll just wait for an atmos kip center to go on sale starting with just a 5.1. If there's some crazy deal on bookshelf's I'd go 7.1. But center first to have a working setup

Or is atmos only for floor standing speekers? So confusing

Like this. $150 cheaper because of the color...

Well 1st there is no Atmos center, just like there isn't one for surround sound codecs(soundtracks).
There are different ways to implement object based soundtracks(Atmos/X).
This is just one way, you can also mount speakers and install downfiring/in-ceiling which most consider is the best way.
I would suggest looking at Dolby's website for more insight on object based setups.

These are not going to end up my ultimate speakers... Probably more like a "Replacement to my RF 82 iis until I want better". But the Atmos is wasted where I am now, is the downside.
I'll buy the RF-82's from you

I'm certainly no expert myself, but just to reiterate what the other poster said: if you're going for atmos, just make sure your receiver can handle the setup you're looking for. Even many high-end receivers only power 9 channels (9.2), meaning you'll have to make a choice between only 2 channels of atmos speakers in a 7.1.2 configuration or forgo the side surrounds of a typical 7.1 setup and go for the front/back overhead pair of 4 atmos speakers in a 5.1.4 config. In order to get a full 4 overhead speaker atmos setup with the traditional 7 core channel surround setup, you'll need even more powered channels with a 11.2 capable receiver in order to do the full 7.1.4. The number of atmos channels can go much higher than that of course, but most people without a dedicated home theater room and money to burn are probably going to stop around 7.1.4. Just keep in mind that the towers featured in this deal, the 280FA's, require 2 channels of power per tower because of the built-in atmos speakers up top.

For me personally, I ordered a couple pairs of these 280FA's in this deal and am going for a 5.1.4 setup using them as front and surround towers with my Yamaha 9.2 receiver so I can get all 4 overhead channels of atmos that these speakers offer. My setup will end up looking like this: https://www.dolby.com/us/en/guide...-guide.pdf

What models your receiver? I wish I had money to burn but I'll be happy with just my 5.1.4 setup.

I don't know where you are now but unless you have listened to these and are your "ultimate speakers" I would suggest to hold off and just continue to save until you move.
Once you move you'll have a better idea of what might work good for you at the new place and you will have a good size budget to go after those speakers you really want.
I have thought Klipsch are overrated floor speakers when I've listed to them. A little muddy and I wish they were a little warmer. I'm not an audiophile expert. But I recommend people go test listed and decide for themselves.

Absurdly large speakers. It's not the 1970s people. I can't help but laugh looking at the Klipsch add showing off these speakers in a room. https://www.klipsch.com/products/...g-speakers

Well see that's the unique thing about all this on what you hear.
It all comes down to what sounds good to you, everything else you read won't help you with that and isn't relevant to you.

More speakers or money doesn't always mean better. There are way to many variables and everyone has there own perspective.


As solid207 pointed out yes they make 11.2 even 13.2 but that doesn't mean you have to go there to have a better system.
IMO most people can't even do a 11 channel set up because you would have to have a pretty large room to take advantage of it.

It all subjective for each person. For instance I have several friends with object based set ups and I was the last hold out because to me Atmos was not really worth it. To me it was more a gimmick than actually worth the benefit.

IMO my 5.1 set up was just as good and in some cases better than those Atmos alternatives.

The only reason I finally switched was because I had the opportunity to listen to properly set up 7.2.4 with reference speakers and it is a significant difference it that circumstance.
I was lucky enough to have the flexibility to be able to follow the Dolby recommendation.

My point is just use your own ears and see what you think.
I would also suggest just concentrating on a good 5.1 set up for now and see what you think. You can always move up to Atmos later. You need a good 5.1 set up 1st for Atmos anyways.

On a side note if you look at that diagram from Dolby that solid207 posted, notice the rear surrounds are not tower/floor standing speakers.
Just pointing that out, not making judgement.
