How should I be setting up my KF-28 and KC-25 crossover?

Should I set it them all to Small / 80 hz? Or should I set the KF-28's to Large/40hz?

^^^ IF you have a Subwoofer, use 80 & Small for a week or 10 days; then try 40 & Large...see what YOU like best.

If no SW, 40 & Large.

If you use Room correction such as Audyssey make sure you never go below what it recommends as a crossover. It's fine to raise from say 60Hz to 80Hz, but never go below. So if it would happen to suggest 60Hz then do not try 40Hz. Hope that makes sense .

For example Audyssey originally set my Klipsch KLF 10's to 40Hz and my KLF C-7 to 60Hz. I have two capable subs so I boosted the FL & FR up 20Hz. 80Hz all the way around gets mentioned a lot but that is mostly to save power draw to the AVR. Klipsch are pretty efficient so I think 60Hz works well and prevents possible localization of Sub(s).

Everyone should listen between 40, 60, & 80Hz and decide if they like the 40-80Hz slam better from the fronts, or the sub. It was really close for me between 40 & 60 (my 10" woofers can slam), so I made the deciding factor be what was easiest on my AVR which is always the higher 60Hz.

Most likely, Same is true for the surrounds. Not much if any low end gets sent to those speakers. I do keep my center set to 60Hz to match the rest of my fronts. The dual 8" woofers on my KLF C-7 are pretty capable though so I said why not. Doubt it makes much improvement (if any at all) over 80Hz though.

I think they will sell more lower level speakers with this. But I also think they will sell less higher level ones (like the rf82ii). Looks matter and was part of the draw of the reference line. People upgraded from the lower levels and got a whole new looking speaker. So now upgrading from a lower reference to a higher one ends up with a similar looking speaker.
Agreed. It all comes down to sales. The copper cones look much sexier than the current icon/synergy ones, and will appeal to the casual buyer. I bet they sell a lot more of the new Reference stuff, and about the same amount of the higher end Reference. I'm curious to see what they do with the new Reference II & III stuff though. Since they already have the copper cones, what will they change?

It's all marketing and I doubt there will be any real improvements to the Reference line. It will be the same old story where they slightly change the spec (possibly with no gain or worse) so they can change the name and get people to sell their old stuff for the new stuff. I say hold on to your old speakers and if you are new to Klipsch buy used. Just like my old pair of RF 15's were basically RF 52's. They changed some numbers, put different feet/logo and called it a new speaker.
