So bad to hear it, those items must be always insured you really can't trust them. That is exactly how looked my PC12-Plus when first one arrived via FedEx. Magnet felt to ground and smesh woofer.

Yea I'm out $100 as it sold for $200 and they cover $100. Hopefully the buyer when refunded will ship back to me, maybe I can part out the housing, good woofer, and horn to recoup some of the loss.


You shouldn't have to purchase insurance. If they damage something, they should cover it. It was packaged well. I wish in my business I could wreck something and only pay 1/3 of the replacement cost lol. I'm a heavy equipment superintendent so I could have some fun! Oh well

Hello fellow Klipsch lovers,

I'm considering a speaker change in the future and wanted to discuss the idea with you all.
Currently my front 3 speakers are Klipsch; RF-3 II(left/right), RC-35(center), and KSW-12(sub), purchased back in the early 2000's.

My brand new house has a media room upstairs with prewired spots for the entire system, 3 wall plates for the front and 2 ceiling plates for the rears.
If I did a switch I'm wondering what models of all the wall and ceiling mounted Klipsch speakers would match or get close to the sound I have currently?
I don't know that I need a new sub, so really just 3 wall fronts and 2 ceiling rears.
I'm wondering what kind of cost a setup like that would run, to match my current stuff being replaced?

And maybe this is a dumb idea too, considering the cost to change, maybe it wouldn't be a good change? I'm fine with staying with what I have, it would just look cleaner in the room, but I have the room for the big stuff as it sits in there now.




Thanks for the ideas and feedback.

Not saying this is the case, but you gotta' watch some of the people you sell to as well. The old switcheroo!

I don't know the model numbers. I don't know that any of them would sound similar to what you have. What I do know is, if I have the choice, I'm NOT going to use wall/ceiling speakers.


My neighbor has some ceiling speakers. She was all giddy about them and rushed me into their room (with something like 15' high ceilings) and wanted me to hear the system.


Turns out the news was on.


It was distinctly odd hearing the voice coming from above. It was almost like God himself was giving us the weather forecast.


She had no in-walls which might have helped.


I guess I'm just old school and my vote would be for a traditional speaker.

I'm not sure of your budget, but the RF7ll/RC64ll combo is pretty amazing. The new line of Klipsch has had good reviews, RP280f/RP450c comes to mind.
