Best Dolby Atmos Speakers: Klipsch Reference Series Best Home Theater Setup Tech: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLw7KVq92xEKMI6buRL4M_C2nCuLoBmm3v Get Klipsch Dolby Atmos Speakers: http://geni.us/KlipschDolbyAtmos I'm creating the best Dolby Atmos Home Theater setup for the money, and in this episode I bring you my Klipsch Reference Series review - these are some of the best Dolby Atmos speakers on the market, and we have configured a 7.2.4 Dolby Atmos setup. A 7.2.4 home theater setup means that we use 7 Klipsch surround sound speakers, 2 Klipsch subwoofers, and 4 Klipsch Dolby Atmos modules that point towards the ceiling. To put it simply, Dolby Atmos is the greatest advancement in home and cinema audio since surround sound. Sound editors now have the ability to pinpoint a single sound and move it around, above and through the listener. Klipsch's acclaimed controlled directivity is the ideal choice for delivering this new, immersive listening experience. Built with the same advanced acoustics as the RP-450C, but with a new real wood walnut veneer to complement our RP-280FA Dolby Atmos floorstanding speakers - this center channel speaker delivers clear dialog and a pronounced soundstage for an optimized Dolby Atmos sound. Built with an elevation channel integrated into the top, the R-26FA Dolby Atmos floorstanding speaker not only delivers stereo sound towards the listener, but also reflects sound off the ceiling to deliver the immersive, overhead Dolby Atmos experience. Klipsch signature controlled directivity and high-performance have been an integral part of Klipsch acoustic design principals for the better part of a century - which is why Klipsch is the preferred speaker for this cutting-edge soundstage. The R-14SA Dolby Atmos enabled elevation speaker is a fantastic complement to our Reference family. Set this height channel on top of your existing floorstanding speaker to complete a hemisphere of rich, detailed sound. Your music and movies will never sound the same. In addition to delivering the Klipsch Dolby Atmos sound, the R-14SA Elevation Speaker's versatility allows it to become a surround sound speaker angled perfectly on your wall.

Great video and very helpful tips...No one mentioned anything about the wires that connect to the speakers as I'm sure they also make certain differences. Are their any wires that are recommended for these types of speakers? Thanks!!

I'm running the Pioneer Elite towers with the Elite SC-LX801. I have four of them around the box. Two front and two surround with dual subs and the elite center channel in a 20X15 room and it sounds great with all four towers set to large. The sound is truly immersive but as far as the Atmos speakers bouncing sound off the ceiling, I can't tell but the sound pressure in the room feels like a movie theater.

Reference is the best speaker klipsch is selling now for this class speaker,but they do not compare to other reference speakers at a higher price. They are made in china also. Klipsch at one time sold THX Ultra 2 speakers that are better,and they sold a super high end speaker called the palladium. The only really great speaker klipsch has left is there heritage brand.

Hello, I am totally confused. When i look at the back side of all these 9.2 receivers I see speaker out for 7.2.4 setup. receivers I looked at: (advertised as 9.2) Denon AVR-X4400H Marantz SR6012 Marantz SR7012 Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2070 Onkyo TX-RZ920 for example on this Denon X4400H it shows: Front: center, left and right (3) Surround middle: left, right (2) Surround back: left,right (2) Height -1: left,right (2) Height-2: left, right(2) subwoofer-preout: 2 That makes it: 7.2.4, so why is it not mentioned in any review anywhere that it can be used like that??
jai bharat (1 month ago)
+davidgarrett0406 i have understood this now. I am now looking for 11.2 (9.2.4) systems only. Thank you !
davidgarrett0406 (1 month ago)
Those 9.2 receivers have the ability to process 11.2. But they only have 9 amplified channels. So you would need an extra 2 channel amp to run from the pre outs to run the extra 2 channels.

What's your opinion about the following as a start up system used for both the TV and just playing everyday music. I was tossing around this combination. A Yamaha TRS-7850 with the Klipsch R15M, RP-440- C and the R120SW. I'm looking for clarity so I can actually hear clearly what is being said on the 4K TV everyday satellite broadcast. It's a toss up between the R15M and the R51M. What is your opinion and why?. We decided to replace the R15M with R-26-FA and have no regrets.

All that talk and can’t even test the System 👎🏿
Robert Heffner (3 months ago)
I prefer my Totem Tribe IIIs. They hang on the wall for the L, R, centre and I've done ceiling speakers for the rears and surround. I think the "bouncing" effects of the Atmos content off the ceiling takes too long. Why not have the Atmos sound "shoot" down from the ceiling? You'd get a quicker response... My surround amp is by Anthem. I've had Yamaha, Onyko and Denon over the years and the Anthem is the cleanest most realistic sound I've had for under $3000. Don't buy your audio equipment at Best Buy. Find a high end audio dealer and take the time to audition your speakers -invest your money wisely...

Funny how you all happy about it until you listen to music and find the horn tweeters are to harsh Try listen to kef and b&w and see. I own klipsch over 20yrs.
gizzy2403 (26 days ago)
Man, that's ur personal opinion and I respect it! But seriously I luv th horn tweeters 4 music , and th louder th better!! And I hav very sensitive ears, but they luv th sound of horns! B&w's r a beautiful work of art. But I think their tweeters sound light, twinkle and kind of fucked up 4 🎸. Which is 90% of what I listen2. It's Coke and Pepsi man. I luv coke, but Pepsi is gross2me! 2 each there own! Much❤bro!📻🔊💽 🎶🎵🎸

I mean, you guys only sort of know what you're talking about unless you're just trying to oversimplify. But, I caught several things that were not correct. I can tell you guys are just kind of DIYers, which is okay. Good video anyway and I encourage you to keep going and keep learning because you're good anchors on video.

The 450CA is supposed to match the real wood vener of the Klipsch RP-280FA. That is the ONLY difference. All the spec's between the two are otherwise identical.

Ron Hillier (5 months ago)
Subwoofer placement is NOT always best up front on the same wall as the tv. Each room is different. Furnishings, drapes, etc, all affect sound. You need to update your knowledge. In most cases, the best place for a sub is as close to the seating position as possible. Fortunately, with the Klipsch wireless subs, they're easily moved around to find the best placement. Like he said folks, take care of your speakers and they'll last for years. The speakers I use for audio only, a Delcoid LM-1 sat/sub setup, are almost 40 yrs old and sound great.

You are right these fool are so happy. Overtime they find out it’s bad for music. I’m a klipsch owner over 20yrs I have to get a pair of kef for music
Ron Hillier (5 months ago)
I agree, especially for music. I guess you can get by with Klipsch for movies, but for music they're crap. There are 2 speakers I can identify when I walk into a room if they're playing, Bose and Klipsch, and I hate both. One has no high end and the other has a horn. Both have terrible sloppy bass. OK, Bose has almost no low end. I used to sell them in the early 80's...turned my stomach. For a reasonable cost I'd got for Magneplanar or maybe Martin Logan electrostats.

This is a bit old but I have 15 foot ceilings how would you do that cause upfiring speakers do nothing the room is 5meter x 5 meter
JoJo The YuMan (6 months ago)
Greets from Netherlands! I like your video's. Plain, clear,simple and to the point. I do have the a3070 and reference II Klipsch speakers. It's a perfect combination and rocks. The subs i have however are SVS PB13 Ultra, they're much better then the Klipsch ones. For the yamaha it is better to put the heights up in the corners to benefit more from the build in DSP, atmos isn't sounding different this way but overall it's a better placement.

Juan Felix VC (6 months ago)
Don't confuse people, these are not the best speakers for atmos. Klipsch is awesome for surround satellites but suck at fronts since they're too bright. The best config is a combination, klipsch for surround and down firing (yes, speakers pointing down instead of crappy ceiling bounce) But brands like Emotiva, Chane and Elac kick klipsch's butt at fronts.

Reference means the level at which the receiver will read 0 dB. The level the producers heard the movie at.

No it means industry standard. If you want to know what its supposed to sound like reference that product.
Docwho10th (6 months ago)
I think I created Atmos 15 years ago. I have a 11.1 speaker system. I played around with different types of speakers including horn speaker like Klipch. I finally found Mirage speakers that blew them all away. They are omnidirectional speakers that radiate sound 360 degrees so the sound is unmatched! Just the front left side consists of 1 ceiling speaker, 1 ear level and 1 lower level speaker so when you add the other speakers on the left with the same array plus 1 ceiling center speaker and center bottom speaker..you get a giant 10 x 16 ft wall of sound! The rears have 5 speakers.
Ferry Gunadi (6 months ago)
Technically you did, but the content wouldn't play it natively. You'll just having several speakers playing the same channel instead of actually wrapping you with directional sound. Unless of course you play from 11 different sources in perfect sync with each other to envelope you with the sound.
Feliciano Arzuaga (6 months ago)

Nilesh Patel (7 months ago)
Hi, Nice video.... I will have 7.2 setup with Klipsch so how many Atmos Speakers I need to create Atmos effect. Like Front two (RP-280FA or R-26FA) will be enough with other 4 Surround Sound (RP-250S)? Or I need to use more like use two RP-250S and two RP-140SA to make 4 Surround sound? Also If I use 7.2.4, can I use 7.2 Regular Reference Speakers and 4 in ceiling Atmos speakers? Which is in ceiling Klipsch Atmos Speakers?
methos 713 (7 months ago)
I noticed you got hardwood floors, does that effect your music/movie sounds vs carpet? I'm getting my carpet replace with hardwood and I'm not sure how much of a change it'll be when watching movies or listening to music on my HT setup.
Oscar Gonzalez (7 months ago)
All of you need to stop buying this garbage and get a Bowers & Wilkins set up. They deliver true rock solid bass with crystal clear highs. I used to be a fan of Klipsch because of their copper drivers but they have no midrange driver which tells us a lot right off the bat. They get painful to listen to at high volumes.
Robert Heffner (3 months ago)
I had B&Ws in the 600 series -603. The midrange sounds too "nasaly." I traded in for Totem tribe III. They are a 2 speaker configuration and have no crossover -a midrange driver can be over-rated...

Curtis B (7 months ago)
While he is correct that those speakers need to be pointed in, I recommend putting your side surrounds on a lift of some sort as you need the speakers to be able to clear the person next to you. At that height it is ok if you only have one person but if you have two or three, the people on the ends are getting blasted from one side and the other side is blocked, especially given how extremely close they are to the couch. I believe the official recommendation is 2' above seated ear level (though I'd probably only do 1' given the upfiring speakers). Don't know why they don't design these 'sets' correctly for the side and rear surrounds a lot of the time. And good to hear that you are local PNW guy!
JoJo The YuMan (6 months ago)
Curtis B yeah, the biggest problem i found is that there are nowhere good speakerstands for the sides to find.
Christopher Ryan (8 months ago)

Sound engineers define "reference" as being a flat frequency response speaker with no extra sound processing or accentuating of any particular frequency while giving the clearest and most natural sound possible.
Brendan Lucero (1 month ago)
So does it basically give you the sound as it was recorded?

Yes, but the term reference in general conversation regarding audio equipment has also assumed the definition the man in this video gave.

Anonymous One (9 months ago)
Hey guys thanks for the video. I have a question that I truly need help with. I am a Klipsch fan through and through. I currently have a 7.2 setup all being Klipsch except the receiver. My problem is my theater room is quite large 16’ x 26’. I have a very comfortable sectional sofa theater style. The problem is being a sectional it’s a solid piece of furniture that makes a curve being almost a “L” shape. Nevertheless I have to have a speaker behind it to even things out sound wise. The speaker is a Klipsch 28F so a fairly large speaker. I feel like the sound is trapped and it’s position really hurts the over all experience. I have racked my brain on what options (if any) do I have. I have it places on a 12” Klipsch sub to elevate some to release some of my muffled watts melting away into the back of the sectional. I need your help badly as a solution so I can for the first time and thousands of dollars enjoy my system. I’m you newest subscriber - thanks in advance and I eagerly wait for your response. Cheers.

First of all, thanks for your info but I have a question. I'm planning to upgrade my klipsch center speaker R-25C to a RP-450CA, my A/V Receiver is Atmos Ready (Marantz SR-6010) but I'm not planning to buy more dolby atmos speaker than the center one, so the question is: Will the RP-450CA work with my current set up ? I want to start preparing for the future.

Reference does not mean highest. It's more of a beginner class.
Salem Dunning (11 months ago)
Couldn’t you essentially achieve the same type of atmos effect with a 7.2 and use 4 cdt 5800 c ii in the ceiling? I say this in part because 99% of my movies don’t have atmos in the option. Spend more on a receiver and several more speakers for little purpose in the end.

Great video guys. One thing that needs to be highlighted is that for the best output for Dolby Atmos speakers is the calibration after wiring everything. It's all about calibration to find that sweet spot at the main listening position.

hi +Techno Dad I need advice, i'm new at this. I have a denon 940h receiver, polk audio tower s-60's and 2 10" Klipsch sub woofers. the geek squad set me up using the mic. 1 tower is at 6db and the other is at 7db, the subs are at 12db, I hope they did their best. my question is I want to get a center channel with punchy bass, I like metal music, so I want the drums to pop, i'm interested in the Klipsch 250 is that good for punchy bass in that price range or do you know something better? my friend told me I shouldn't get a center, because that's more for theatre, what do you think? and if I get a center speaker can I hook it up without having to to set up all the speakers again? thank you!
Techno Dad (11 months ago)
Hi! Yes, that is correct! You need to run the room correction software in your AVR to get the best sound, once the speakers are properly connected and in place.
Mike Smith (11 months ago)
Speakers don't go bad....however, technology changes.
gizzy2403 (26 days ago)
Exactly! Only way if somebody really tries 2 overpower them. I know Reference series had a shutdown safety mechanism in case they were somehow overloaded. Which should nvr happen, because people should ask questions and buy proper equipment! They should last a lifetime! Ik people who had Klipsh Heresy from early 60s and I believe he still listened2 them 2day!

Andru, love the channel bro and especially Klipsch. Just subbed! I agree with Channa that you can get a lot of life out of quality speakers. I have 3 Klipsch LaScalas in my theater room and they are amazing! I just received from Klipsch the new RF-7 III to review and they are absolutely amazing! I have 4 videos on my channel about them.

Well they want you to buy more speakers and newer AV receiver. But it's still a better buy though. Audio system lasts much longer than your smartphone, or laptop. Buy once for at least 10 years, and the speaker itself lasts much longer than the receiver.

Ceiling bounce is a joke.
Lisa Ritchie (26 days ago)
+Dustin Martin ceiling bounce is "nothing" like ceiling mounted speakers. I'm sorry but it's not even close. You need to sit in a room with properly calibrated setup using good ceiling mounted speakers. I have a few setups in my home and ceiling mounted are in another stratosphere compared to "bounce" speakers. I don't care if they cost 100k per speaker. You can't fake physics
Dustin Martin (1 month ago)
You haven't heard the right speakers if you think it's a joke. Admittedly I thought the same but I decided to dump $5k-$8k into a new setup and the Atmos speakers (along with the entire Reference Premiere line) were selling for a good price at the time. I'm talking 20-55% off retail, free shipping, no tax, good price... I just finished a Klipsch Reference Premiere 7.2.4 setup that is world's better than what they have in this video and Atmos works perfectly (In case you are wondering what $5k-$18k gets you: front left and right are RP-280F, center is RP-450C, surrounds and surround backs are RP-160Ms, subs are R-112SW and SPL-120, and Atmos are RP-140SA. All connections are Audioquest [Chocolate and Cinnamon HDMI, Golden Gate RCAs, and Irish Red sub cables] and all speaker wire is shielded 14ga twisted pairs to banana plugs. Everything connected to a Onkyo TZ-RZ920 receiver with a Onkyo M-5010 amp. Sony UBP-X800 4K HDR Blu-Ray player, AppleTV4K, and LG 65" 4K flat screen.). Needless to say, it isn't cheap but patience and shopping around for the amazing deals help to get anyone the best speaker for their money. The Atmos speakers were 100% worth it and sound heavenly. I paid $300 for each pair, I think, and retail was $400 a pair. You HAVE to find the content that has Dolby Atmos to take full advantage of them though. Luckily that's becoming fairly easy to find. Plus, aside from their Atmos capability they can be used as height speakers hung on the wall where they fire at an angle downwards. Amazing stuff from Klipsch and Dolby

+sweetbrandigirl No they do not. They promote the bounce system because it is what most will go for rather than ceiling mounting speakers but it is inferior to proper ceiling speakers. Dolby say "we recommend using four Dolby Atmos enabled speakers, modules, or overhead speakers if possible".

+J Rangel you want sound coming from all directions not just boucing

Ceiling speakers will produce a better quality of sound. Some ceiling are sheet rock some are concrete some ceiling are 10 foot some are higher get my point in order to reflect sound properly there's a lot of variables. You can't go wrong with ceiling mounted or in wall....

putting the surround speakers up high can work well and expand the soundstage, but it's not as immersive as a proper Atmos configuration.

I know Techno Dad mounted his Atmos speakers on his ceiling because his home design is not well suited for ceiling bounce. I'm going to be using my two Atmos speakers using ceiling bounce and the speakers are next to the TV in the front. I'm curious about how sound will move overhead when only using the two front Atmos speakers vs using two front and two rear Atmos speakers. Could you try that out and let us know? Thanks
Techno Dad (1 year ago)
Yeah, there are lots of speakers out there, and for the performance to value, they are great. Would I love to have a full ML setup, sure I would, but I can't afford $2k per speaker, and I'm sure most people can not.

dolby atmost is nothing but a trick to get you to buy high price speaks thx is dolby atmost,movies only play a small atmost in the movie,if the track is in there any speakers you have will give you the dolby atmost affect

Atmos speakers...Option 1..."elevation speakers" mounted on the front and rear walls w/ angled front baffles (face)...angled down 30 degrees. Option 2..in-ceiling speakers also angled towards listening position with "sound bouncing" the LAST choice..which was everyone's "1st generation approach". Even Dolby recommended that...bouncing sound is always the LAST alternative when there is NO other option.

Anderson, actually Dolby issued in a 39 page report in 2015 on Dolby Atmos in which it reminds all readers that all results are based on an AVR that is capable for processing the "Atmos" signal. In addition, the report goes on to state that if your ceiling is low or you have to mount the speakers on overhead trusses or brackets, they may be too close to you as you listen and as a result could be distracting because you will hear directional sound instead of feeling immersed in an atmosphere in which sounds occur naturally overhead, which is the desired result of the up-firing Atmos speakers. The report on numerous occasions cites the benefit of using up-firing speakers versus traditional height speakers. That report is available online free and gives a lot of good information about the different various setups.

I just use a pair of Sony HDMI 9.1 surround headphones (HW700). Works great, I mainly play games so nothing beyond 5.1 really benefits me and Dolby Atmos is only supported in like 3 games, plus you have to pay $20 just to use it. It cost me $170, $350 If you bought it new, and the only downside is no HDR pass through but I personally don't like HDR, it tends to make games look less vivid more and more dark (likely due to limited brightness the image is darkened in general). If you want HDR you can just get an HDMI splitter and make the headphones output to a cheap display. I'd recommend something small like computer monitor so only an addition of $100 to have HDR.

Andru/Channa Great vid man. I just bought a C7 and need a Home Theatre system but I don't want such a large bulky sytem. Not to mention the cost. What is the best small form factor Atmos HTIB that you reccomend?

Droidz Hunterz thank you Droid

Buy two sets of Klipsch Quintet 5, then you can do 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 Then you just need a receiver and a sub or two The Quintets size and weight makes them easy to mount on the ceiling and walls with built in quarter inch threads and keyhole mount.
Techno Dad (1 year ago)
@mystickid1 There's a great 5.1.2 speaker set from Focal (Sib Evo Atmos http://amzn.to/2C5uzvj), but it comes in at $1,299. Then you'll probably need an AVR, and that costs around $449 (Denon x2300H http://amzn.to/2H034qH) that will be able to support 7-channels. You'll be getting a quality system for sure, if you go with these items. If you want more options or a little assistance, you can always email me: [email protected]
