Looking for any one who has the rc 62 II and upgraded to the Rc64II. I have been thinking about upgrading and spoke to Klipsch about it. They said I wouldn't see a difference in clarity, more so it would just be louder. I currently have older Reference series setup and they said the tweeter and timber matching would be fine. I would love to get RF-7 but I don't have the room, I figured upgrade the center over the towers as the system is for movies.

Klipsch also said I would need to give the rc64 200rms and suggested I get a 3 channel amp to run my fronts. I did some math and its about a $1400 investment to upgrade my front speaking and get a new amp for them.

Any one who has done this or even owns the Rc64II do you think its worth the extra cost? Is it something I can quantify purchasing. I find at -10 with my x4000 its about as loud as I like to comfortably watch movies. Not sure if I need the extra power, or do I? my rooms 3,377 cubic feet.

Here is a crappy pic of my room.

Your room is pretty big size I will definitely think about RF-7 set. People have those in lot smaller rooms.
From pictures looks like you have a room for them.
It is very commend talking here about center. Some people get RC-64II center and keep tower like RF-82II or RF-62II and they love it, other will tell you those are not timber matched together so it is better to decide to get RF-7 set up or keep RC-62II and tower for this center. Like you said RF-7 set will be great with extra amp but this can be last thing on your list, Klipsch speakers even RF-7 are easy to drive so your AVR will do great with it. If you budget is ok i will look for RF-7 set up a specially now is kind of good time for better deals.

You'll get mixed opinions on this board about mixing the RC 64 II with RF 62/82 IIs. I personally don't think it's a good move especially if you already have an RC 62 II. As the Klipsch rep pointed out the RC 64 II is voice matched to the RF 7 IIs. This might not bother you, and it certainly doesn't bother some who've done this. But, I've heard them mixed, and I didn't like it. It's also expensive, almost as much as a single RF 7 II. Simply put, I'd rather just keep saving for the RF 7 IIs and then get the RC 64 II.

I could swing for the center now, might have to wait a month or so to get the rf-7s. On the right side of the screen i only have 9 inches between the screen and the door frame. Sure I could put a larger speaker there but I think it may look off a bit so I would like to keep the Rf-8s if I could. I know the tweeter is 1" compared to 1.75" on the rc64II.

Any reason in particular why now is a good time to buy? Are they changing out the model year.

Personally, I'd think that those RF 8s should be plenty for that size room. Maybe update to RF 62 IIs or 82 IIs with RC 52 II or 62 II
