I don't think you will be disappointed in them by any means, should be a nice upgrade. I do think your money would have been better spent on the high efficiency designs offered by RA or PSA. I know Klipsch claims extremely high efficiency from their speakers, but not sure they hold up under actual testing to those claims.

I've heard that their numbers are a little inflated. To me they sound great. Crisp clear highs and the horns seem to cover more of the listening area than my Infinity's. It's like you can't really pinpoint where the sound is coming from. To me they are not too bright nor fatiguing as others have claimed. I have no doubt that speakers from PSA or Reaction would be better I just can't afford to spend 3x the amount of what I paid for the Klipsch to have a complete system from PSA or Reaction. To my ears these speakers sound great and play nicely with my FV15HP's. One big happy family.

Receiver - Denon 4311CI
Speakers - Klipsch RF-82 II rest coming soon
Subs - Rythmik FV15HP's

Oh so you already have them trying them out? Cool. I also didn't realize they were that much cheaper than the ID options mentioned. If that's the case and you are happy with them, sounds like a win...congrats! Were you able to tell if they seem more efficient than the speakers you are replacing?

JT, those horn speakers sound better with extreme toe in. Try 45 degree or play with toe in position. Also, have them at least flush with your FVs if you have not already. Horn speakers with high compression tweeter seem to sound better at louder level. Try them at reference with the gun shot scene from Open Range and tell me what you think. Be prepare to feel that shot hitting your chest.
