is the rc-62ii worth the big price increase over the rc-52ii
the rc-52ii would have a much better WAF
but I would rather be sure to have a speaker i will not need to up grade again
I now have a jbl es center I am guessing both would be a much better center over what I have now
my mains are polk m70s I am interested in having klipsch front three having rf-82ii fronts but thought I would buy the center first to see if I like the klipcsh sound and do not have the money now to replace the fronts and cannot hear before I buy
I have a denon 3312
the room is 18 x 20 x 8c
I will be crossing at 80htz or maybe 60htz at the lowest
would the rc-52ii be enough I do like to be a bit over the top having a little more than I need
movies/music 50/50
I want better highs than what i have now and to be louder with out adding more power
I am running 4 jbl es 250 subs at half gain sound good enough to me but need better louder highs and mids to keep up with the subs
I found my speakers a little lacking with blues playing brass

Yes it is worth it. I started with the 52 with the 82's and it sounded good but the 62 is the matching center. You mentioned 50/50 music/movies and the 62 makes the front stage more seamless than the 52. I cross the 62 at 60hz. That said the 52 is no slouch. I have it matched to rb51 bookshelves and the soundstage is also seamless on that system.
