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

Yes...I think your right. I don't really need to upgrade my front LRC. I do have synergy book shelves and surrounds I think I will upgrade those first. I got the speakers as a gift so I cant complain. I personally wouldn't have bought them but hey, it was free.

I have the 64 II and can only comment on it as a center since I bought it to go with my RF 82s.

I personally don't like it and love the 82s but I've never hooked up one of my amps to it either. I just have it running off the AVR like the towers. I can't pinpoint what it is that I don't like but can say that it sounds thin and lacks dynamics. I don't have it in a treated room (its in my bar room with tile floors but has a large rug on the floor between the speakers and MLP).

That's just my findings and have talked to other members here who felt like I do about it. For the money I was really disappointed but its really the only speaker that matched my L and R so have kept it. Maybe putting some power to it will wake it up but I just don't see it improving that much in all honesty.

You need to wake that RC 64 up. It certainly shouldn't be sounding thin and lacking dynamics. Something is wrong with the set up. Try one of the amps you haven't hooked up yet.

Sounds thin and lacks dynamics? Hmm sounds like somethings not right in your setup. I have mine running just off my Denon and in no way does it sound thin. I know it will sound even better once I throw some more power to it. I'm assuming you will be selling it then?

What are your main L/R? I can tell you what I run and to me it sounds excellent! I once had the rc62ii but replaced it with the rc64ii. The 62 is a good speaker, I now run 2 as surrounds. I originally had the 64 running off a 300w nad set to mono. It now runs off 1 ch from an amc 150w×3 amp. Between my rf82iis it sounds A LOT BETTER than the rc62ii ever did. So, imho, if movies are the main material then yes a better center will be the way to go. The timbre mismatch doesnt bother me and 150w does fine between 2 towers also on 150w, also nad. Btw if I could afford rf7 etc I would have them. Still a work in progress

Alex stated this is the klipsch forum regarding the new budget reference line

"For those wondering, here are the differences between Icon and this new line of Reference.
All new Reference Linear Travel Suspension tweeter design for smoother, more powerful high frequencies.
All new mechanical woofer design with seamless dustcap for minimized mid frequency diffraction and distortion.
All new Spun Copper IMG woofer cone is incredibly rigid, with new design adding structural integrity for minimal cone break up at high excursion levels. This makes for even cleaner, more accurate low frequency reproduction.
All new Brushed Polymer Veneer finish is exceptionally durable with a much more contemporary aesthetic over the previous wood grain vinyl of the Icon series."

My mains are rc-3 and rd-3 a few years old but they still sound great. I also got them for free.
