Klipsch Synergy 12"?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Well, I'm getting a pretty nice reviver and tower speakers from my grandparents since they past away. Anyways, I'd like a sub to go along with them, and I was having a look at this one.

I can get it for $190 with my discount, think it'd be any good?


I'll let you guys know the towers and reviver asap, I just know that he paid a pretty penny for them not too long ago.

Sorry about your grammy and grandpa. What tower speakers will you get and what is the size of the room you will be using it in?

Also, are you just looking at this one?

Sub-12 is excellent at that price point. It hits harder than cleaner than pretty much anything under 200-250 dollar range.

I have heard of amp problems that went along with some particular models of Synergy models, although I do not believe it is this one.

Thanks bro,

Uhm.. For right now, It's about 150 square feet, give or take. I don't remember the name of the speakers, but I'm confident they have 3x 6"s and a dome tweeter in each.

That's the sub alright! Well thats good news I can get the Sub10 for about $40 cheaper, considering I have two jobs, and no bills to pay.. should I go big?

Also, what outputs do I need on the receiver to be able to use it?

150 sq ft... so around the size of a small/medium bedroom. That will definitely work!

The sub-10 should also work well for a room of that size, but I suggest paying 40 dollars for the sub-12.

Are you going to end it connecting it to a soundcard?

So soundcard ---> receiver ----> speakers?

If so, you need to look at your soundcard and see what it takes. If it has a optical in, then that would make things a lot easier as a single cable will do everything.

Otherwise, you would need a couple of Y cables (RCA to 3.5mm jack) and connect it from the front/center/surround/subwoofer jacks from the receiver to matching jacks on the soundcard.

I think the sound source will be the from my TV where my Xbox, iPod and Blue Ray is hooked up to. It has RCA out, as well as a 3.5mm out.


Basically, I just need to know, does the Sub have it's own channel, or does it work through the slandered 2 Channel RCA's, and then filter out the highs..?

i actaully run that sub in my HT room.
For the price you can't go wrong. It's fairly powerful. I paid 250 for mine and that was a great deal, for 190 it's a no brainer.

At times it can feel too boomy, but that also can be due to the position i have it, right now it's in the corner - which can produce that boomy (loose) sound.

The sub connects via a coaxial rca or r/l speaker wire

heres a pic i took for you...i'm bored right now

What's that yellow connector attached to on your receiver? Like coaxial SPDIF..? Or is there another attachment on the receiver back to R/W RCA?

+REP for the picture bro, thanks!

It's a coaxial SPDIF to a splitter then to the r/l(lfe). you don't need the splitter - just straignt to the LFE, but i run my towers in Large mode sometimes so depending on the xover to the towers some of the lower freq signal will go the sub.

Good luck dude and cheers!

Turns out the tower speakers are Cerwin Vega LS-10 towers, and a Technics reciver. Not the best, but they are loud. I definitely need a sub for them though, although they each have 10" woofers, I think the crossover or something is cutting them off.

I'm going to go for the Klipsch Sub 12. $599 at best buy, I believe I can get it for $180.
