Quote from LocoDethDeala :
Just upgraded an older HK 7.1 setup with Polk S55 and have been waiting on them to go back on sale to start buying the other speakers.
How does everything compare to the Monitor 50s?
The sound of the R263s are much fuller and more detailed while the Monitor 50s sound tinier.

M50s have (2) 5.25" speakers while R263s and RC263 each have (1) 5.25" and (2) 6.5".

I actually wanted the white Polk S55s as well but they are never in stock.

Quote from dxj602 :
The question becomes do you think two R12's would sound better than an single PB-2000? Total cost for the two R12's - $280 (I had a coupon code for the first one), cost of the PB-2000 - $590 after taxes. Since they have free returns, maybe I'll just pull the trigger on another R12 to test them out. The two R12's are less than half the price of a single PB-2000.
You want to hear something really amazing? Try 4 SUB R12, in 2 stacked arrays, in opposite corners. It will completely destroy everything, in its sale price range.

Caution: May cause foundation cracks and/or settling.

I have the 263 towers and center channel and I can't say enough good things about these speakers for the money. Crystal clear and they will take all the power you can shoot to them.
Same here, I just installed the RC263 center two days ago. I've had the R263 towers since last summer. Loving this three speaker system right not and will be adding over time. Eyeing the RS152s for surround

I need to replace my soundbar for my new OLED LG TV. These look like they would fit on/in my entertainment center. My soundbar will not. Would this work w/that TV?
Take a minute and look at the dimensions and you will have your answer. Also, there need to be powered by a receiver.

Quote from NikAnon :
R162 is really a good deal for $160. They seemed to scale up with good amplifiers even further. I was also impressed with R12 sub for home theater use. i had one of the inside plastics (porting) fall off in one R162 speaker, so sent both speakers to Harman. They will replace with new ones at no charge). Their warranty support is really good. Communication was no trouble and only through email. When ordering new, R12 order took some time ~ 2 weeks. Overall i am impressed for the price they sell.
Granted, i love my Elac Debut Reference more. But they are >$500.
I've mentioned this in past sales, but the R162's are amazing speakers. I use them near field with a Cambridge Audio integrated amp. They are just as good as my Paradigm Mini-Monitors but with a more revealing top end. Welith a sub they sound almost as good as my Monitor RS6's that cost many times more.

LOL in my 5.2.4 setup all mine are crossed at 60 even the in ceiling. I will mention they all go down to the low 30 Hz wise, apparently not everyone https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...2/dontknow.gif
It has nothing to do with the speakers. You want LFE to fully go to the Sub. No point for 60-80 to go to the speakers. LFE should be unlocatable.

Could be the sub, could be the denon. Its not the infinity line. I have the 263 line on a 279 yamaha receiver and its incredible with an HSU vtf-3 mk5 sub. Speakers all crossed at 80hz. These things are INSANE for the price. My old setup were Klipsch vintage quartets with the ultra rare academy matching center, with a cylinder SVS. It was crap compared to this setup now.

UNless a HUGE room with multiple seating rows, dont do bipole. I have a pair sitting now, because the r162 sound so much better as surrounds.

Just jumping in to let everyone know that JBL/Infinity/Harman's return policy is great. I tried the JBL 530s, didn't like them, returned them within the 30 days and got my money back within a week. All was handled online, easy as could be.

I disagree as a matter of fact a I would argue most of the time it should be "locatable".

Yes a good sub excels at those very lower extensions but they also create a much more accurate, detailed reproduction of the sound over say the R12.

That periodically happens but what happens much more often is the higher subtle bass extension like say rolling thunder, heavy rain,door slamming, roar of a engine, plane flying by and so on and so on.....

That often doesn't just happen in front of you(front stage) it's going on all around you, that's why it's called surround/immersion sound.

When speakers handle those subtle low extensions its does a much better job of blending the sound and placing it with more accuracy and detail within your layout/environment creating surround/immersion.
In other word it places the sound in the correct "location" based on what you are watching much better.

That's going to be less accurate all around when your speakers only go down to 49Hz and sub at 29Hz.
Not to mention the quality of them.

That may be one reason people sometimes say they don't hear a big difference between say the R263 and R162. When you assign all the bass to the sub, your taking away that advantage of the 263.
IMO when you do that, that's even more a reason to getting a better quality sub.

It's all a preference and if people choose to do that with the bass that's there prerogative but it doesn't mean "No point for 60-80 to go to the speakers".

Quote from Ants210 :
I have the P363's and looking for something newer. Would the R253's be a big upgrade by chance?
The P363's are discontinued but hard to beat in a budget speaker. The 253 has smaller woofers and will likely have worse base response. If your 363s are working fine and still looking good I wouldn't replace them with these just because they are newer.

None of that you listed is LFE. LFE absolutely should NOT be locatable. You need to research. The better/larger more powerful the speaker the clearer it is due to less work. ALWAYS cross at 80. One of the huge reasons is you DONT want to BLEND low frequency. Speakers will sound different low than the sub range.Theres a reason THX is 80. Here is a little bit from none other than audioholics. https://www.audioholics.com/subwo...erformance

Bass below 80 isn't locatable to human ears which is why that is usually the setting(actually I think the number is around 100) If you are very concerned and want some bass to be produced by speakers then set it at 60. Below that if you have a sub just have it handle the bass as it can do so often better while also lightening the load on the receiver and speakers to produce that bass.
