im actually looking at psa speakers but if i can spend less.....i can get front 3 klipsch rp line for around half the price of the psa's

i read great things about this new rp line and especially that 450 center.
What people don't realize is after you use room calibration, you speakers will sound nothing like what they would normally sound with no EQ. With that being said, just don't mix like a bookshelf for left channel and floorstanding for right channel.

Gotta say, these Rp-260f's sounds amazing - and I havent even run setup on them yet. I"m coming from bookshelves and the upgrade feels huge. Now to pick up a matching center and some surrounds (either RS-10 or some bookshelves)

I think the new tweeter design really made them more easier on the ears. The old horns were louder which worked great in the age of vinyl because of the limitations of the material and playback technology. When the digital age came, the loud harsh horn can be a bit too much.

Are there people out there that think the rf-7 II's are bright? I would say my old rf-82's were bright with certain music genres but my 7's are anything but bright.

Everyone hears differently, some are more sensitive to certain upper frequencies than others. If they don't sound bright to you, then it doesn't matter what others think.

Definitely don't sound bright to me. I've heard bright speakers and their anything but. I've said this before but come movie night they're hard to beat IMO.

I'm one that thought the 7s were bright. They have a bit of a rising treble response and a couple peaks - I think 18khz and 20khz. Having tinnitus, I'm very sensitive to certain frequencies and I guess the 7s just hit those spots for me.

Still great speakers and as @ereed said above, doesn't really matter what others think as long as you like them!

That's understandable considering you have tinnitus.

What baffles is me people buy R7s and other nice speakers regardless of brand and do not invest in room treatments. Room treatments will cut down the ringing and its possible what people were hearing is the reflection and echos due to bare walls instead of the horn itself. Once you got your room treatments in place and if the speakers still sound bright, then you know its not the right speaker for you to begin with.

I have RP line and they are not bright, but they are brighter than dome tweeters I have and I'm on hardwood flooring....adding acoustic panels really brought it together and my klipsch speakers with room treatments sound less bright than my dome tweeters in untreated room but still have that dynamic impact of the horn. Hope I am making sense.

Also the room size has to do with perceived brightness.....of course if you put horns in very small room its going to sound brighter than a very large room which is what its really made for. It is silly I see people buy R7s just to have the best speaker in the lineup but they have wrong room for that speaker.

Get the room right, then get the speaker for that room. It allows you to really enjoy the system much more.

100% agree, you HAVE to have a treated room with these speakers to really here there potential.

I added a few more panels this week
