Indeed, my RP-450C has mid-woofers that are what I would call 4.25" in diameter, and the RP-160Ms are 5.5" across, middle of foam surround to middle of foam surround (because that represents the largest possible area actually moving air, IMHO). I measured my so-called 5" Sony speakers, and they are 4.25" across, and my really really old 3-way-speakers' woofers are only 10" across - I thought they were supposed to be 12" woofers. Maybe not. Weird.

My opinions are my own, and do not necessarily reflect those of my captors.

Eric from Sound Distributors was very responsive, and I can't blame them for a bad tweeter from a random sampling of warehouse stock (can't possibly expect hem to unbox and test everything before it ships!). Hopefully this is a rarity, and the next round of Klipsch speakers I get to replace the remainder of my set-up will be glitch-free.
Got my replacement pair today. They sound great! And more importantly, the same! Both mid-woofers and both tweeters seem to work just fine.

I'll do some critical listening tonight, hopefully, but I think these will do just fine.

They must be counting the diameter along the surface rather than across the opening, so the distance down into the center of the cone and back up to the other edge.

Someone said in amother post that is something to do with the size of the frame of the woofer. I measured my old 12" Cerwin Vegas and they were like 11" something, must be the standard

Finally finished my Klipsch Home Theatre System and have moved everything in.

( see below my tag line for link to thread )

Thank you to all the people who have helped, criticised and pointed me in the right direction as it has really been appreciated and it has meant I have avoided some of the pitfalls that comes with the Dedicated Media Room build...

Now to enjoy and keep up to date with the world of klipsch on AVS
