I'm a big proponent of having all of the speakers in a given setup be from within the same series. If the R-28F's are your mains, get the R-52C. My secondary setup is a Klipsch a Icon W arrangement and my WC-24 sounds great with my WF-35 mains. I actually have an extra RC-3, RC-62II, and C-3 boxed up in my basement that I could use with my WF-35s, but why? The WC-24 blends better than the other centers would IMO.

I support "if it sounds good to you, in your setup and your house, then use that."

What would people suggest I use as a center with my Chorus II's? I started with the Academy. Now, I'm going to try a KLF-C7. Whichever meets the above specs will be my center channel.

I agree if it sounds good to him in that room save the coin if you not going to move to a bigger room and upgrade the fronts. I did like you, I ended up with the C7 (larger 10" tweeter horn)from a RC-62 between my Cornwalls. It's better to turn down the gain on a larger center then to max it out on a smaller one. For me it was a no brainer as I have lived in the house for many years and Not moving now that I am retired... I started out going big on the fronts(build around them first) when I just had stereo then I added HT and faced with not enough room for a third Cornwall or Heresy for the center and rears. I played the RC-62 for several years with RS3-II for rears. It's a shame no rear corners for my back surrounds so I had to wall mount the rears for my 5.2.

According to you, that speaker is for older Heritage speakers. Totally different tweeter and mid horn than my Chorus II's.

I'm not going to get another tower, there's no need for that and my TV stand is big enough to hold the RC-62II, so anything smaller will fit just fine. Sikclown made a good point, I'll get the R-25C and try it out. I think part of the problem is that I've only heard the RC-62II and anything else I've listened to has not measured up.

I have the RC-3 center with 4x chorus II's... I'm using an ancient receiver and was able to match the frequency with the chorus II's with a bit of EQ... but I'm constantly tinkering with it/ might be upgrading to Atmos soon. I'm happy with the sound but I do find that for different films I end up having to crank or turn down the center channel.

Anyone here have a 7.1 Klipsch setup? I'd like to get some advice from those of you who do/ might have chorus II's (haha).

The C7 10" tweeter has three different diaphragms so it will timber match most all Klipsch fronts. And two 8" mid woofers. I have listened to a C7 on Fortee, Heresy II, Cornwalls, RF-7 and KLF-30/30 and after we adjusted it in the eq. and matched the diaphragm all was great IMHO. Make a DIY center and purchase used Chorus tweeter and mid .

I'd try the Heresy II, &/or KLF C-7; easy enough to get your money back out of the one you don't keep.

HII works pretty good with my LS.

I wouldn't say totally different, but no it's not identical. You asked what I'd suggest and I suggested.

According to me? What? I'm not following you.

My setup is soon to be 7.1.4, but 100% of the speakers (minus sub) are Reference II line Klipsch. Perfect for home theatre. Horrible for music.

Why do you think Klipsch Reference II are horrible for music I really don't have that feeling at all. What Klipsch reference II speakers are you going to use for Atmos?

Horrible for music? Come over sometime and listen to my 7II's. I can guarantee you will change your opinion. In fact I'd put a hundred dollar bill on that as well.

Cool... hopefully same here. Are you getting the Def Tech A 60's for overheads?

I have 4x chorus II's, which I want to use as fronts & rears, perhaps will have either SB2's as sides/ or RS 62's... not sure if that would be too much dispersion along with the chorus II's or not.

If you don't mind me asking.... which speakers do you have as your fronts, rears, & surrounds? Have any advice for what I should do about surrounds & heights?
