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.
