So I have an older pair of RF3-II's (Fronts) and on one of them my top black speaker connector broke off, snapped right under the black plastic connector.
Do I have to buy an entirely new crossover part to replace this one part, or do you think it could be repaired with say solder etc?

I currently don't have my copper bridge connector on the black cable thats going in there now, not sure how this is affecting my sound but I think I need that back on there right?

Any ideas to repair it? Or get it fixed? I've opened a ticket with Klipsch, maybe I can take it out and send that part into them?

I honestly think you are going to be ecstatic when you get the larger Center to match!

Anyway, nice job and good pics.
I am only running the subs 4db up from the audyssey setting (raised from -8.0db to -4.0db), and am crossing the RF7ii's at 60hz. I think the 7ii's can take more of the load, especially with the amp, and put some kick into the front channels instead of the subs doing it. Should be interesting when I can fire up a good action movie.

I am already noticing they are larger and more full, and the horn is crisp just on a HBO movie. Sounds great.

Nice. If you can get away with it go for it lol. I didn't think I could sneak the rf83s in without her noticing though so had to tell her. She was p**sed at me for a while but things are all good now, I purchased some kitchen things for her and she forgot about the monsters in the living room haha

The first one I got had a little chip along the back bottom, same thing that would have if it went across carpet without the feet on. No way to see it. Second one is spot less as best I can tell. For the price I got them

Finally got my SVS PC-12+ set up and wow I didn't know what I was missing with my Polk PSW-10 talk about BASS lol. It makes my RF-82 II's look tiny hahaha guess I'm going to have to eventually upgrade to RF-7 II's.

This and the Klipsch forum are the reasons why I have all of my gear lol. And to think I almost chose cerwin vega over klipsch when I really started getting in to it! I had sonys then wharfedales then an ok pair of cerwin vegas. I still remember the day I got my synergy f30s home I was hooked. Then I found this forum then the klipsch community, it was all downhill(or uphill) from there.

Yea this hobby can be addicting. One good thing by having a great pair of speakers, you're set for a very long time.
