Gotcha. Cool cool.

This is probably the wrong place to ask, but they have those specials on their site...The Premiere Acoustic Titanium setup for $1299. How would something like that compare to the RF-82 set up?

I've never heard of Premiere Acoustic speakers. I consider myself pretty savvy when it comes to HT equipment, so there's probably a reason why Premiere Acoustic has never been on my radar.

However, generally speaking, you get what you pay for.

A cheaper version of klipsch (or so people say) are the bic acoustech. They are also horn loaded and get very good reviews on this site if you are looking for horn speakers and want to save vs the klipsch. Go to the owner's thread for more info.

I've never heard them, but a lot of people are very happy with them. You could then put more money towards a sub. People usually get them for a discount off the offer price as well, but I can't remember how much cheaper. I think less than $1000 without a sub. Though people do like the PL-200...you could get two of those. Though most would probably prefer 2 pb1000 or a pb2000.

Can't say how they would compare to an RF82 system but that looks like a lot of speaker for the price. The PA150 sub has incredible output over 30hz.

A three way center at that price is a nice bonus.

They at least have titanium tweeters (BIC uses aluminum) just not compression drivers like Klipsch.

I was a a little worried at first due to all the people saying how bright Klipsch speakers are. These are nowhere near being too bright, albeit I've been an MB Quart fan for a while.

Did some calibrations and some sound tests. I'm beyond impressed. The wife even loves the setup.

I have basically your setup and on Home theatre, it's crazy good. You will love them. Music is meh imo, but I'm a 95% Home theatre user so Klipsch all the way!
