My question is.. can i mix the 4 S-3s with the RF series? Or would I be better off selling all of it and building from the RF series?
You'd probably be better off starting a new thread in the speakers section for more replies to your questions.

Like the quote below, you will have a lot more response if you start your own thread, or ask in a Klipsch related thread.
But, I think you would be fine with R*7 series in the front with a none matching series for your surrounds, not has important as your 3 fronts.

I can finally stop answering the question "when are you getting a matching center?". I can't get more matching than this.

Out with the old - Polk RTi10s and CSi5 and in with the new - Polk LSiM 707s and 706c.

Got them, so far so good. Now, I just need to get that TV on the wall so that I can bring the center channel up and forward.


HT Configuration: 7.2.4 l Panasonic Plasma (65") l Denon X4300H l Mono 7 amp l Behringer FBQ3102 EQ l Polk LSiM 707s l Polk LSiM 706c l Polk FXi-30 (x4) l Infinity ERS-610 (x4) - Atmos l SVS PB-2000 l Polk PSW 505 (temp) l Oppo BD-93 l Denon CD player/Turntable 1 Cassette Deck l

I purchased the Polks also except the LSiM 703 bookshelf. I never knew Polk even made this level of speaker, I have high expectations, but unfortunately mine are on backorder. Did a lot of research but when these went on sale it was an easy decision for me.

Currently running a Marantz NR1506 with a pair of Elac B6's, but I am looking to upgrade the fronts right now. The Elac's feel a little dark for my taste. Great speakers for a small room if you don't need a sub.

That's like going from a side-by-side refrigerator to a thermal six-pack of beer cooler.

How does the sound compare, and why the huge shift in speaker size? Congrats, BTW, because LS50's are incredible speakers for the money!

Had the 802s for 15 years and was ready to try something new. Loved the imaging and sound stage on the 50s which was better than the 802s. Also loved to see the look on my friends faces when they heard the LS50s and they started looking for the other speakers
that just had to be hooked up to get so much from those small boxes.

Ken, thanks for always being an outstanding and helpful contributor.

Thank you. That must be one of those "priceless" moments when people who have seen and heard the big 802's start scratching their heads about the room-filling sound of two svelte, curvy little boxes. Well...photo?

Must feel like a new room, having all that space back. Looks a little more 21st century too. The 802N are a classic look, though can dominate a room in size for what they produce. I can't help but think of "Uncle Fester" when I see them.

Seems you may be "UnLearnt" about just what LS50's sound like in the right space and properly paired with a couple of high quality subwoofers.

Just a joke of course. Never heard the Q's or R's but not a fan of KYF's LS50's or Muons. Too midrange forward for myself.
