A:AnswerPassive in this meaning related to a speaker means that you need to have an amplifier or receiver connected as your sound source. It's like the original type stereos of the past. Nowadays they offer powered speakers that have built in amps inside the speakers themselves also on the market. So if you have a conventional system the "passive" speakers are what you would use.
Example: Many sub-woofers are NON passive or called powered subs because they have their own amp/power source built inside.
A:AnswerI am using the Denon AVRS750H rated at 110 Watts/channel to power the Klipsch 600 Watt towers. This is similar in power to your Sony. I am also using the Klipsch R-120W powered subwoofer. With the volume control set at 75 (out of 1 to 100) I get as much volume as the neighbors would tolerate. My listening area is 30'x30' and 14 feet high. I'm sure your existing receiver will handle the larger Klipsch towers.
A:AnswerYou will be fine with 16 gauge wire - take a look at the cord on your girlfriend’s blow dryer, which is 1500-1850 watts continuous. I feel quality is more critical than gauge, so spend a few dollars more for whatever attribute floats your boat - oxygen free, pure copper, longitudinal stranding, special terminals, flux capacitor, etc.
A:AnswerIt depends on the age of the T-50s. Just off hand I would say yes because of the watt upgrade and the fact that these are made for volume. I would recommend a Klipsch 12 in sub with can be balanced appropriately so the bass is not overbearing.
A:AnswerNo, it won’t work. I suggest you get amplifier receiver.Your tv should have a Fiber optical that will go in the back of the receiver. These speakers are big. Keep In min, you’ll also need rear speakers to complete a surround sound. The center & subwoofer is an optional but will help. The subwoofer is for the base. You can use your tv as the center channel.
A:AnswerAvoid these at all costs these are not the old reference line that we were used to. The high end line is now called Reference Premier line. I’ve been high-end audio enthusiast for over 30 years now if you own Forte ii’s I know you’ve been around the block as well the highs are so harsh on these speakers at mid to high volumes they will make you feel as if your ears are bleeding seriously I have heard some garbage in my days but these speakers will straight up damage your hearing. Luckily I’ve got RF 7 iii’s now that is the speaker to buy . Klipsch also has new Forte iii in their heritage line Pretty sure they would be fantastic but still couldn’t see them touching RF 7 iii’s though good luck !
