This may be a weird question, but right now I have an RC-62 as my centre channel, which I plan to upgrade to the RC-64ii. Now I'm wondering, would it be crazy to have some RC-62's standing vertical and used as front wides? I'm sure Future shop will most likely have the old RC-62 (same as mine) on sale for ~$250 when Black Friday comes around, so i figured why not pick up another?? I have the perfect spots for the two speakers to sit, and there's no way I have room for any other towers in the font wide position. Excuse my dumb questions, but I'm new to this.

Hmm I think I will try this - will let you know how it works out in a week or so - just finishing up my new theater and have RF-7 ii, RC-64 ii for LCR.  I had 3 RC-62 for LCR in old house with two sitting in storage:)

I don't think they're supposed to be run vertically. Someone with more knowledge can give you a better answer though.

Since starting this thread I've read that Klipsch designs their horns for more of a horizontal sound spectrum and less of a vertical (excuse me if I'm not using the correct terminology), I think 90deg on the horizontal and 60deg on the vertical?? Anyway, it will be a while before I try it as I'm placing an order for a Rythmik FV15HP.

I'm not sure you'd want my center, with grill on it looks mint, but with it off you can see where my daughter was reefing her play screwdriver into the woofer fixing things like daddy. Thank the good lord it wasn't a RC-64!!! I only paid $250 for the RC-62. She's lucky she's so darn cute, lol.

Correct, the dispersion pattern is set up for horizontal use. You could rotate the horn, then it would work better.
