If you can handle the size and looks of the cinema line.... you can make a solid jump over the residential speakers.

Example, many of the cinema speakers have 2" horns. The diaphragms on them might be 3 or 4 inches but the actual horn they mount to would be something like a 2" horn. This is still bigger than the home version and will lower the distortion even more at a given listening level. You can go scary loud with these 2" horns....far more than you would with a Khorn or LaScala.... and you can have better sound while doing it.

It appears in the manual that they can be wall mounted against the wall

More to think about

As for the rp250's, when I looked in store they were significantly smaller than the 260's (the bookshelves weren't there to compare). That's why I suggested the bookshelves, take the savings from that and put it into a sub and you have a pretty good 5.1 system (with whatever cheap surrounds you buy). Especially since this is a system for someone else. The bookshelves also give you an upgrade path where you can get the bigger mains and move the bookshelves to surrounds.
Yes and no to the rear port issue. Yes it is never a good idea to block a speakers port if you want it to perform properly. However crossing the bass frequencies over to a sub makes this issue all but dissappear. The answer would be a resounding no if they were to be used as mains and/or expected to play full range.
I fully agree with getting still decent bookshelves and allocating funds to a better sub and later moving said bookshelves to surround duty.

I come from Jbl ls 80, one set of Jbl lsr 308 studio monitors, from PULSAR AUDIO M18...
I have changed several times.
Tested the KLIPSCH RF-82, II RF-7 as well.
About the sub, SVS SB 13 ULTRA is just a little bit less powerful than the Bass Reflex model, PB13 U that I had and sold. So there is no comparison, Klipsch is a good sub but plays in different league.

As I posted somewhere in AVS, different subs, are not the best idea for multisub integration.
Actually I decided to sell the Klipsch, and save some money.

Sorry for my low level English.

While we're on the topic of subs, I just installed two PSA V1800s to replace my old SVS PC12-NSDs. Whoa. The PSAs are awesome.

Hey guys, quick question:

Pair of KLF-30 on CL, seller is asking $189 for both. From what I've read, this seems like a steal. Thoughts?

Denon AVR-X5200W [] 7.1 [] Klipsch RF-82ii [] Klipsch RC-62ii [] Klipsch KG 4.2 [] Bose 301-V [] SVS PB-1000 [] Vizio E60-C3 [] HTPC [] Harmony Elite [] Samsung SmartThings

Yes it is a steal at that price. BUT...

Make sure all the drivers work. I'm guessing you know how to check.

AND the KLF 20/30's have a well known problem with cabs that vibrate. The problem was some hot glue that apparently didn't get hot enough to properly glue the melamine, I don't know, something like that.

Point is, it is a problem that de-values the speaker, but the fix for that is well known, either here or over at Klipsch.com forums. It's not hard to fix, but not easy either, it will take some of your time.

Especially at face value, it seems like a good price. Offer him $150 due to the glue problems but if all the drivers work, take them at the $189.

So while trying to learn more about what I may be getting into, I stumbled across another CL ad from Orange Country, California (I'm in San Antonio, TX) and the two pictures on the SA ad match two of the pictures in the OC ad... the verbiage is also identical... Looks like the deal was in fact too good to be true. Still awaiting an e-mail or phone call back but looks like it's a phony ad I was already planning on where to add them in my theater.

Your analysis looks correct, 100% phony ad. It has all the characteristics.

Pass.

Thanks.
