I have been enjoying my Klipsch quintet iii for some time now in my small (12x9) home theater/listening room....but I'm think of purchasing the Klipsch rvx-42 for my L R and C....is this a significant move up or a small incremental move ? Comments appreciated. Thanks
Personally, I would keep the center and satellite speakers you have, and buy some better front speakers. The RVX-42 would be a minimal improvement; not worth the trouble IMO.
90% of what is wrong now is that the front speakers are way too small. They should go down to below 80 Hz, and the ones you have do not. The center and satellites only need to go down to 120 Hz or so and the ones you have will be OK.
A pair of the Klipsch KB-15 Icon speakers would be my recommendation.

It doesn't matter how many times you say this...
...it will never be true
John, I can't speak to the specific speakers you mention as i don't know them well enough; perhaps you should ask that Klipsch specific question in the Klipsch thread for more answers.
If you do decide to do an upgrade, replace the front 3 first (you can keep the sats as surrounds) but make sure that the three all timbre match and that they ALL can reproduce the signals that the movie and music producers intended to be sent to them.
