Any of the twin 8" woofer models should provide good bass especially with a decent power amp. It took me to get twin diy 15" fridge sized subs running off a pro amp to understand what my rf82iis and synergy f30s couldn't do. I had 2 velodyne subs before that and wasnt really impressed.

I'm not a bass head by any means. I just expected more bass out of them. I have a huge room open on two sides and 18' ceilings and only run the Klipsch r-112sw and it far surpasses my needs for bass. When I first got the 82ii's at my old house which had a much smaller room, it was a little better, but still lacking. If I didn't run a sub with them I would be disappointed.

Hey guys/gals. New to the Klipsch thread, but have been an owner of many Klipsch products over the years. Just received and hooked up the new reference premiere center channel rp-450c. Powering it with a Marantz sr6006. Initial reaction is wow, this thing sounds great. Highly recommend this new line by Klipsch. Plan to get the matching towers in the future, but wanted to share initial thoughts on the new center since there isn't much out their on them.

Welcome.

There isn't much at all out there on the new line. They're just getting released to dealers. Glad you enjoy it.

If you buying speakers in quality like Reference II it is not many people expect to go without sub. If so 8" woofers can't do what 10" , 12" can so then if sub is not option for some people they need to step up for bigger towers. But even RF-7 can do some bass it is not again as good as a specialy a good one. Also in your case like tou said you have a huge room, so RF-82II will sound much better and provide some bass in closed room 15x15 as example.

However, it seems like it is the tweeter from the kl650thx, which crosses over at 1400 Hz. Additionally, the parts express horn dimensions are listed at 7x10, while klipsch lists the kl650thx horn at 6x10. So what explains these differences? Are the parts listed at parts express a faulty run or something along those lines? Thinking of trying some DIY and employing this driver but I'd like a little more intel on it first
Anyone have an idea on this?
