I have an opportunity to pick up a pair of KG 10.5 towers for cheap.

Which set would you guys prefer?

I won't give a preference but if these are going to be used for Home theater you also want to consider what you are using as a Center channel and future upgrades.

I totally agree that the ID companies are now making comparable (even better) products at really good prices...That said I sit about 5 feet from our front (positioned in not such a great position) Klipsch RSW-12 http://www.klipsch.com/rsw-12-subwoofer/details and about 5 ft from our rear RSW-15 http://www.klipsch.com/rsw-15-subwoofer/details and both have served us well for over 12 years and neither's gain is higher than 1/4 volume so they don't even break a sweat in our less than 2,000 cu ft room at Reference level.

Same here. My SW-112s are between 8 and 9 o'clock, and Audyssey has them set at +0dB. They are comfortable at reference volume, and I get plenty of chesty, well behaved bass attack for my tastes. I listen to music which doesn't demand anything they can't do, so my demands are met.


Here's my thoughts on the ID sub debate, at least as it pertains to me and my set up goals.


1.) I didn't pay full retail. At full retail the SW-112 isn't a rip off, but it's a premium price tag. However, Amazon has it at $100 off, and Fry's and others, even less.
2.) I sometimes wish I could go for a sealed sub design, and internet direct dominates the selection of sealed subs. I'll admit this is mostly curiosity driven as I've never owned or possessed one for any length of time. I did borrow a JL Audio once, and wish I had more time to play with it, it truly had a fantastic sound. Of course JL Audio only uses the best componentry, and at $2000 it better rock my world.
3.) If a sub doesn't have a flat frequency response, I have no interest in it- not if it's ID or not. This is a near perfect rule of what separates a good sub from the crap. The Klipsch SW-1** subs do, so for almost that reason alone I consider them quality subs, of course you get what you pay for in any case, and YMMV.

I quite like my Klipsch RW12d paired with my NSD. The RW12d gives me the kick and punch I like at slightly higher frequencies and the NSD supplies a bit more depth the Klipsch can't. There is value in both, some people want the purest and smoothest of lows. But I myself like to have certain moments in movies to kick me. And I like that they do it at a very good value.

What I'm saying is I value all sorts of sound and have learned to appreciate what I have after reading this thread combined with the SVS thread. I also understand if you are looking bang for your buck, Klipsch is a great choice.

Denon x4000 (amazing sound correcting software)
Klipsch RF-62IIs (amazing horns)
Klipsch RC-62II (so clear)
Klipsch RS-41IIs (so full)
SVS PC12-NSD + Klipsch RW12d (so boom)

The RW-12d does seem to be a good bang for your buck and is considerably cheaper than the older RSW-12...that said when you look at their comparative specs there is also considerable difference in their design and power rating...When the RSW-12 came out it was $1200 and I got it for $800--That was 12 years ago.

Wow. I didn't even know what the RWS-12 was sorry. Dude you are rockin with 2 of those. I would like to replace my RW12d with that. As it does go a bit lower and I bet it provides quite the midbass punch.

I find this hobby similar to my old Saltwater tank hobby. You are always willing to spend more money for something to make things even prettier, even what you have looks pretty damn good already.

After finding out about that older sub it makes me want to replace my RW12d with maybe a SW-115. How do you think the SW-115 compares to yours? I feel like yours still goes pretty low but might offer more punch in the higher regions. Whereas the 15 woofer might be more focused on low, like the NSD does.

I wonder how that would compare to a PB-2000? I wonder if it's dialed up with a bit more midbass. I would love that!

I wonder if Texas A&M will have another "Johnny Football" for this year? I was watching the Dallas Cowboy game last pre season game is not worth watching. Cleaned a Chet Atkins LP and jamming my Cornwalls.

It would appear they aren't missing a beat.

Hey Kendall, I hated it when A&M went to the SEC and gave the finger to the Big 12 (Texas Longhorns, O.U. etc) over TV money etc. The A&M game is not on my DISH package I ordered. The Dallas Cowboy game started out so bad I am breaking in a Denon DL103R MC cartridge and jamming my Klipsch.
I forgot how nice analog LP's sound on Pop's old Pioneer PL-518X turn table. It took me a hour or so to align the cart in the head shell.. I hate those protractors you print out from Vinylengine..

Syd, did you call Klipsch to see if they have any?

They slip over the spikes.
