In my 2,100+ cu ft living-room, the end result -- for 5.1 movies and 2.1 music -- is absolute perfection.

Thanks - I honestly just need a little somethin' more than I'm willing to run through the RF-7s right now. I've had a beastly 15" vented sub that vibrated my bawls and that was cool... back in the day. But this is in the living room with my wife and 2yr old - I can't be getting out of hand like I used to, LOL.
Nuthin' drove me more nuts too than hearing the sub "breathing" through it's vent. That was probably a poorly placed/configured POS sub situation, but I'd like really tight, fast, clean and musical this go-around.


Like the others said, I guess I can send 'er back if it's not enough. Or if I get that urge for BOOM again.

Perhaps this explains why I have pet geese.... and Klipsch speakers.

Has anybody had a chance to drop by their local NFM to look at the current Klipsch in-store prices? It would be nice to know if they have dropped any of their prices since the last big sale.

Pardon my ignorance, what's NFM?


Regardless of what NFM is, I've not looked. I've not looked anywhere at any Klipsch.

NFM is Nebraska Furniture Mart, They are an authorized Klipsch Dealer that had an amazing sale a few weeks ago (50+% off) of a lot of the popular speakers. I ended up getting my RF-82's for $599 for the PAIR!!!

As mentioned in my signature they aren't installed in my ceiling just yet. Hopefully by the end of Next week for my Atmos 5.1.4 Setup. With the Holidays and everything I haven't been able to get the time especially since I need to replace ceiling tiles and reenforce my ceiling to handle the weight.

That said I have heard a lot of good things about the 5800C's when added to / used with other Reference Speakers. I think that they are going to be a great addition to my existing setup.

I will certainly let you know once I get them installed. I just ordered The Maze Runner
for testing and already have the new Transformers movie which is Atmos Encoded.

Keep in mind that I would use an 80Hz crossover for both speakers and the 52 is rated down to 67Hz, while the 62 is rated down to 57Hz. So, is it worth the cost to swap the 52 for the 62? Will it sound noticeably better with the 62, instead of the 52?

Though if there's any chance the RC64ii is in your future, it might be worth holding off on the 62 to save money for the bigger upgrade.
Thanks for the response, mpirnat. It looks like I am going to find out the answer to my specific question, as I just pulled the trigger and purchased an RC-62 ii while I could still get it at the BF price. I am hoping for a little improvement in the mid-bass right around the 80Hz crossover point.

On a related note, I will have a mint condition RC-52 ii for sale soon.

Well I finally had a chance to connect my rc 62 ii and all I can say is wow! Makes the previous onkyo center sound like a toy.

I'll be curious too. I picked up two pair possibly might get a third for 9.1.6. but I won't be able to install for several month at least. so I'd like to hear how they worked out for you. beefy ceiling speakers-can't imagine they wouldn't get the job done.
