I need to know a little more about Klipsch subwoofers and mostly the more vintage style units. I have an older Klipsch sub that is just not enough for our room so i am looking for another sub to help balance out the room. The cost of a new sub is a bit much so I am going to try an old Klipsch sub to try and match to the one I have.

I went to eBay and found a ton of them for sale. I know that Klipsch sells thousands of units per year but it does raise some questions. Was there something wrong with the Klispch 12" subs back 10 years or so ago? Why would there be so many of them for sale especially the same type units.

Any help with this will be great appreciated as I am trying to keep my costs down.

Thnx

I'm not sure what you are asking but keep in mind a 10 year old sub has a 10 year old amp and no tellin' how hard it's been driven...That said, it would help if you provide a budget and or model numbers you are considering.

I have a pair of klf 20's for left and right and klf 10's for the sides. And a bic pl-28 for a center channel and bic pl-89's for rear and wide. I would like to at least up grade the center speaker. I can buy a pair of klf 20;s for 500 bucks and use one of them as the center so I have klf 20 across the front for LCR. But I would have to lay the new klf 20's on therside and just plug in the top one, until I flip my room around and use a acoustic transparent screen. Or the other option is to buy a new or b stock rc-64 2.

Now I know the 64 ii is more money then the 500 for the pair of the klf 20s, but i wont be wasting one of the speakers with the 20;s as I only need one and cant afford to buy both the 20 and the 64. So what would you guys suggest? But the pair of 20s for 500 and just waste one of them and lay them on the side or spend a few bucks more and get the rc 64-ii. But how good if the voice matching of 64 to the klf 20s? I can repurpose the bic center in an other room. I am not currently running a sub. and still enjoy the sound.

But one of my concerns with out sub is the klf 20 goes lower then the rc 64 and the pl-28 center. I did at one point tip over the paird of klf 10s and they were not bad and sounded better then my bic cetner. So hence the ideas.

You could use bass management in your receiver to send LF from your center to your L/R. Just set the crossover to 80Hz or somewhere around there. Not sure about voice matching between the two series

My thought on the quantity you see is that these were likely sold with a lot of 5.1 systems, and the users have either upgraded or transitioned to a soundbar or just gave up their system for another reason.

Honestly, I bet both options would work. I tried both the C7 which was voice matched to the KLF series and the Reference RC-7 and thought the latter sounded better although the C-7 doesn't sound lacking except in comparison.

Another thing to consider is trying to find a pair of KLF 30s to use as mains and convert one of the 20s as a center.

Why not look into buying the C-7 which is matched for your 20's? I'm sure the RC64II will sound fine but it wont be ideal like the C-7. The C-7 uses a 1 inch tweeter as the RC64II uses a 1.75". The C-7 is polymer and the 64 is titanium.

I agree he can't go wrong with your suggestion but will tell you I preferred the RC-7 which has the 1,75" CD to the C7 with the KLF-20s, regardless of differences. Also remember the RC-7/RC-64 have either larger or more LF drivers and are larger speakers. Fwiw, that's not to say another person may not come to a different conclusion.

I still think if they are going behind a transparent screen having 3, 3-way speakers across the front (KLF-20s) would give a better lower end and when he adds a sub(s) could have a killer system.

Regardless, good luck.
