Question: I was looking for the Klipsch RF-82 II's earlier but I'm wondering if I should downsize to something else since I'm only running a Denon 1712 receiver which probably won't take full advantage of them. Will that hinder the quality enough to warrant going down? I can always buy a new Receiver, but since I bought this a year and a half ago, I'd like to hold off for now.

Would a full set of RF-62's be worth it? The pricing actually doesn't seem any better on those, so would it be best to get the 82's and grow into them later?

Get the 82's. The 1712 will run them fine until you upgrade.

Cool, thanks for the quick update.

Fry's had the 82's for $479 on the weekend, not sure if they still do. I've been told to talk to Sound Distributors here in Vegas (I'm local), would I expect a better price than that?

That's not bad but I believe you can get them cheaper. Try Acoustic Sound Design. They are also in Vegas. AVS also sells Klipsch and can get you a good deal. Call them both and see what they can do.

Can't hurt to superglue the broken one until you replace it. Might even be enough!

Are Acoustic Sound Design and Sound Distributors the same ppl? I always thought they were but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I don't think anyone can beat their price if you are local and they can give you some discount if you pick them up.

You will get better then that a specially if you pick it up yourself. They have a lot of open boxes also for a even better price. Good luck to find good deal. Get definitely 82's !!!!

That horror story about the cracked woofer has me thinking of my own Klipsch mishap that I've never gotten fixed.

I've got a pair of original RF-3s. The things work great although they've got some cosmetic wear for being 13+ years old. About four years ago I had the grills off when my wife (now ex) threw a dog toy (after being told not to near the HT stuff) and it took a funny bounce and dented one of the 8" woofers. The cap is fine, and all of the damage is strictly in the Cerametallic cone. Amazingly, I've never noticed a difference in the sound quality, although I have to admit I've never tried to make myself hear it. Everything still sounds excellent.

I'm about to move and I think I might want to upgrade my speakers, or at least get something that the new wife thinks is a little prettier. I think these would be impossible to sell with the dent in the cone, but does anyone have an idea of how hard this would be to replace on my own, and what the cost would be? I'm reasonably mechanically inclined, but my soldering isn't necessarily the best. I bought them used for $400 9 years ago so I've gotten my money's worth, but it would be nice to give them to a new owner, and have a little something to put towards new speakers.

If they sound normal save the coin. I assume you unplugged the damaged speaker and played the cabinet and then hooked up the damaged woofer and unplugged the good one??? If so and they still sound great keep them for rears......... just a thought. Here is a link for replacement woofers for your RF-3.

Oh sorry to hear it, well you need to wait little longer for replacement. They look amazing btw, congrats!!! That RS-62II look next to new surround like smart car next to F-150 truck
Are you going to sell RS-62II?

Could anyone help me setting up my Klipsch KF-28's?

This might be more of a receiver question to be honest.

I have a H/K 7550HD. I set the crossover frequency to Large, which is anything below 40Hz I believe.

Where I'm not sure what to do is setting up the LFE properly. You get different options when setting up the sub on "Large" vs how I ran my old speakers at 80Khz. The three sub options are LFE, LFE L/R, and Off.

I'm guessing L/R LFE means the speakers will do absolutely no low frequency and instead it will be all sent to the sub, correct? And the LFE setting means L/R will still retain some low frequency functionality while the sub will handle specific LFE signals? Is this correct?

So my two questions are..
A. Well, what's the optimal way of setting it up? With LFE L/R or just LFE?
B. Does setting the Low Pass Filter knob on the actual sub do anything at all at this point? Or is everything being handled by the receiver and these settings?

Thanks guys.

Yes I'm going to sell the 62ii.

I have had some really bad luck buying these pro speakers. First ones came as the wrong model with no xo. And now one comes with the driver rolling around in the cab .

Where did you bought them? Hope company dealing with you nicely. Your story with speakers is like mine with SVS subs I'm sure you remember it but don't worry on the end all will be great.

PM me what is your price for those I'm interesting to get them from you.

I didn't unplug them, because I was afraid I'd start noticing something sounded wrong and I didn't have the cash to replace them. Keeping them for rears is a brilliant idea, but I think I'd have to get divorced again for that. Those replacements are a little more expensive than I wanted to spend, but thanks for the link!

They get shipped right from Klipsch to me. So it's not the dealer messing them up.
The guy who bought my 64ii asked about buying the rs62ii when he was over getting the 64. I told him I will give him first dibs if I sell them. If he backs out I will let you know.

I used a key hole bracket. I'm a little worried the screw might snap. I wonder how many pounds a big screw in a stud can hold before it snaps? It seems fine but it looks really big on the wall. So it has me a bit nervous.

Any of you hung over 40lb from one screw in a stud?

Hey mate. Im not 100% sure but I think LFE L/R is the same as my (onkyo) double bass. This is what I run and it means main L/R are full range so you are getting everything they can handle (amp dependant), and the sub is getting LFE AND bass signals from L/R. So if i am right, LFE off is no sub, bass through main L/R. LFE is dictated by xover settings ie everything under xover is sent to sub as well as LFE signal, and LFE L/R is full range L/R and all bass from L/R sent to sub as well as LFE. Low pass filter on sub should be as high as it can go or off or full range, the bass management is handled by the receiver. Some guys will disagree, I think the general consensus is start @80hz with xover and see what sounds best. I just like knowing all my gear is going as hard as it can.

Thanks for the help

So I went ahead and looked up in the Manual and it says this:

L/R+LFE: This setting sends all low-frequency information to the subwoofer, including both information that would normally be played through the front left and right speakers and the special low frequency effects channel information

LFE: This setting plays low-frequency information contained in the left and right program channels through the front speakers, and directs only the LFE channel to the subwoofer.


I'm just a little confused on the wording here. No matter the setting, the speakers are getting the same information right? This only dictates what information the sub will be getting (double bass info or single).

I'm not entirely sure I hear a difference between the two settings regardless, but I'd still like to know exactly what this stuff means for the future Thanks

What is good is coming from Klipsch so they will take care of it. That is crazy how often those expensive HT pieces got damaged. Who deliver it FedEx?
Yes let me know I will be interested to get them.

RB81IIs, new, are $425 each. Unless you're suggesting pricing for a pair?

$450 each is MSRP but every klipsch dealer will give a better price. RB-81II now each is around $290 + shipping so around $640 pair shipped.
