Not saying it would change your opinion but for the person asking the question it doesn't really help since the two lines are very different in design.


Yes. That is why I said what I said in the beginning. Perhaps someone who has compared 280 and 7ii could share how different they are to each other to inform the OP. No one has directly compared the 7ii and PSA 210 so was trying to give some perspective. Let the OP decide whether it was useful or not.

This is a Klipsch thread and not many people compare speakers. Some do.

And contrary to what some may suggests, it is not necessary to match your other speakers for Atmos duty. Many, including myself, have excellent Atmos performance utilizing ceiling speakers costing far less...i.e. $50 - $100 each.
Thanks for the info. I will grab this set since this is version II also.

You might also want to check the thread below from time to time.. @popalock in Chantilly has RF-7II's and RC-64II's but last I saw, he was abroad in the Middle East...and if you ever get the chance to see/hear his set up, it's his subs that will literally "blow you away."

@Ladeback

I must rescind my explanation of the of the analog/digital nature of the two signals above as it is not completely accurate. However, when using a component connection for DVD's, ensuring that "component" is selected on both devices is accurate. Hopefully this is the resolution to your issue.

ok i have the 450c ordered.

now im down to two choices for the towers.

either the 260 or 280

the 280 costs $100 more but i keep reading the 260s are the sweet spot.

the room size is approx 11x11 so its small and i know this is overkill.

but i dont care. im buying only once

also, will a 80 watt denon reciever power these fine? i keep reading reviews and people bi wire them to add another amp because its not enough power from their avr

Does anyone have any idea or knowledge regarding if Klipsch is going to make a new version of the Palladium speakers in the forseeable future?

Currently doing some early research on my first 5.1 setup. Most likely going in a family room. Setup would be geared towards home theater with only 10% use for music. Lots of movies/blu-ray watching and console gaming.

How much of a difference is there between the RP-250f and RP-260f. I can get the pair of 250s for $100 less. For center I am looking at the RP-250c and R-150m as rear speakers. Sub probably a R-110SW. Looking for quality sound but I don't need bass to bring the house down.

I don't think the 260's are overkill at all. With your Denon and a subwoofer crossed over at 80 Hz, it will be great. The 280's will play just enough louder to be noticeable over the 260's, assuming they're the same real life sensitivity as the RF-82 II. Klipsch claims only a 1 db sensitivity difference between the RF-82-II and the Rp-260f, but my receiver setup says it's more like 2 1/2 db. I would get the RP-280f, if you can afford them. I got the rp-260f, and as soon as the RP-280f go on sale, I'm buying them and moving the 260f to surround. I'm occasionally overdriving the 260f in the mid bass between 80-150 Hz, but I have a lot more power than you, I think you'll be OK. Whenever I know I'm gonna be blasting music, I change my crossover from 80 Hz to 150 Hz to stop the occasional distortion.

If you are thinking of 260's, I'd just go 280's and be done with it. Either that or really good bookshelf speakers and a killer sub

I've owned a bunch different Klipsch speakers over the years including some heritage. I was going to go for the RF7II's originally ( had RF7I's but sold a while back). But instead I went with the new RP280 and 450c instead. for surrounds I have R62II's x4 and CDT5800's for ceiling. I have to say the RP280 and 450 sound great for movies & music. They are a different Klipsch sound than I am accustomed to- but non-the less so far I have no regrets. I'm sure the room itself along with wall treatments affect their sound too. curiously waiting for the new RF7III line. but in the mean time I am pretty happy.

If you have a decent sub, then you probably do not need the extra oomph from the 280s. If you had an amp to power them that would be better to utilize the full capability of the speaker.

That extra oomph will be in the 80Hz (or where you set the lower xo) to 200-300Hz (or wherever the mid bass is). You will have a degraded output at those freqs with the smaller speaker.

Just picked up some RP-15PMs for the bedroom tv to replace an old LG soundbar. Very good quality. Wife approved.
