So I see these RF-82s for $1000/pair online. Those IL-40s probably had an MSRP of $1200/pair back in 2006. My IL-60s MSRPed at close to $3k. Sure hope you like those new Klipsch better in the long run. Sorry to see you go.

It's nice to see others with the IL60 fronts and IL36C center!

 

I am also using the IL50s for the rears and the IL10s for the rear surrounds...

Yea, I paid around 1100 for them.... Heck, I might not go anywhere if tey dont sell...might just put them in another room....not too many interested people. The RF 82's have a peak of 600watts 175 continuos & 98db sensativity and 2 8" drivers plus the horn....they really have an unbelievable SQ....

Dang, that is serious stuff. You must have a pretty large room to fit in all those towers. And based on my own experience the sound is most likely superb. Did you RABOS all of them?

Yup, gotta love the RABOS kit... lol

 

I also have been toying with using all of the towers at LARGE range speakers; and then using just the front towers as LARGE range speakers and using the rear towers as SMALL speakers but sending the sub sounds to the subs in the rear towers, etc...

For a long while I ran my IL-60s as SMALL, sending all the LF to my DefTech PF1500 corner sub. This due to lots of internet recommendations about cancellation, etc. Then I read where multiple subs can actually improve the overall sound. I suppose placement has a lot to do with the improvement, but... What to do. I even went so far as to parallel the Infinitys' built in subs with the DefTech on the subwoofer output. Didn't like that at all.

So now I run them LARGE. WTH. Pretty sure most cinema audio mixers don't put much bass in the LCR anyway. And when I put on that serious pipe organ music:



they dig deep.

And I do use the RABOS kit. It's not perfect, but combined with the BFD I use on the sub it makes for a relatively smooth low bass experience at the only important seating position.

You were using a pair of $3,000 speakers with built-in 12-inch, 500 watt, sub-woofers as a pair of SMALL speakers? :eek:

 

:p

I know it sounds bizarre; but there were threads here, at HTForum, HTShack, S&V (back when they had an active forum), and elsewhere where "experts" including the likes of Tom Nousaine et al. postulated that no matter what the frequency range of one's main speakers they should ALWAYS be run as SMALL and all the bass below 80Hz should be directed to a single corner located subwoofer (all this assuming that said sub had better LF extension than the mains). All this because combing, cancellation, room modes, nulls, etc. would in effect make the extra bass from the mains inaudible, unnecessary, extraneous, counter-productive, or wasteful excess.

So I bit. For Home Theater only. And not for very long. It takes some time to correctly dial them in to a HT setup that includes a separate sub. I assume you've seen this remarkable frequency response graph of the IL-60s? At the time probably the flattest of any speaker available

Read through this post didn't see anyone was running the Reference rs from the early 90s :o thought I would show some love for them and post mine.


 Got them from a friend for free a little while back, they all had bad foam surrounds, just replaced them and good as new.  I love these speakers :)

Were those late real Infinity or early Harman Infinity?

I like your distinction - "real Infinity"...
