I heard them once at their HQ in Indy. Liked the sound & thought they sounded good.

I would still opt for floor standing over in-wall.

I've never heard other brands (and don't really care to since I'm not into the entire idea of in-wall......too many compromises in my opinion)

Actually.... I guess I lied.

I guess I do have some Klipsch in-wall speakers.

1)Do i sale my RF-82-II or move them to the back as surrounds

2) Are the RF-7 II that much better than 82 making the upgrade worth it ?

3) For surrounds which is the best route to go RF-82 II or RS-62 II ? Thxs
I also think you should use the RF-82s as surrounds--I put RF-3s on footstools and used them as side surrounds--That said, having that new front soundstage along with running towers as side surrounds may put some strain on that Denon at higher SPLs.

I know it's freq response starts around 59hz, but my RC62II in my room actually could be set at 60hz according to mic tests by a calibrator and its actual in room response. I never did though.
I change mine all the time. Full range, 60hz, 80hz. Whatever sounds best at the time lol

What AVR you suggest would be up to the task ?

I am going to use the RF82 as surrounds as well, they rock your socks very nice

I have finally got a start date of the 06/06/2015 for my house build ( and media room ) and have started a build thread please feel free to give me any suggestions or opinions that might help with the journey. (Klipsch-eum Theater ).

Its been a while since I was last on and oh my gosh did I miss this community...

The future is out there somewhere :)

I usually do not change either, just calibrate and leave alone.

Speaking of calibration, I spoke with Chad and he will be in my area early june. I will have the 64ii by then, so I am going to go ahead and let him do the audio call so I can see how these new speakers need to be setup properly.

I am sure the Denon AVR-4520ci would be up to the task and if you can find one should be greatly discounted given it's discontinued (I purchased my AVR-4311ci when it was discontinued that way). I wouldn't purchase a refurbished AVR-5420ci unless you feel comfortable with the warranty...

There are others that may work (look for the ability to drive 4 Ohm speakers) and another possibility would be to find a Denon X-4000 (discontinued as well), try it for a while and if you decide you need more power add an external amp.
