I see used RCLCRs for sale locally pretty regularly around here. You should be able to find one with a little patience. One thing to keep in mind though is that many people have received damaged...

Check your local Best Buys and ask them to look it up on the computer. Mine has a single demo RC70 left for $199. They are likely all gone, but perhaps there are a few left in the backroom in your...

Are you near the border and near a Fry's location? Even with the crappy exchange rate, it would be worth it to grab the RC70s if you are within reasonable driving distance.

I like Denon/Marantz and Yamaha, but any receiver should have enough power for a pair of RC70s. Don't let a few extra watts be much of a factor as it won't make much difference. Look for the features...

Audiovox has since purchased from Klipsch. The connoisseur line is still around and Fry's still has some stock on the reference connoisseur lineup, but at some point - probably soon, they will be...

I don't know those speakers, but a quick google search brings reviews as far back as 2008 so they could be 7+ years old. Ask your question in the Energy owner's section in the link below and you will...

I went from using RC-10s to VS surrounds to RC-Rs. Each was an upgrade, but justifying the the cost was debatable each time too. I'm trying to slow myself down or possibly even stop upgrading...

The V2.0Ri surrounds are a higher quality speaker, but the VS surrounds are the correct tonal match for your front three speakers.

I wouldn't say that bi-pole/di-pole (multi firing) speakers are a...

Many tire shine products actually promote tire cracking (dry rot) so I would keep that stuff far away from your speakers. I've heard that the tackiness on the Veritas tops can be caused simply by UV...

I can't help you with the thread size, but absolutely find a stud to secure it to your wall. I would not trust anchors to hold up speakers as heavy as the V2.0R

The RC-70s don't need all that much power, unless you like it REALLY loud. In all likelihood, your current receiver will be fine. Try it with them and you will know.

As far as being twice as...

You shouldn't have to pay more than $300 for a RC-LCR. I guess by comparison to the RC-70 blow-out pricing, that could be considered pricey. Fry's will have them on sale again or there's always the...

Optical illusion I guess. I measured and there is 2" of space with the top panel on - same as the ports on the bottom of the cabinet. This is a chalugadp-built flat pack.

Yes, but the screws mounting the driver will only be fastened to the outer baffle (which in my case should be the inner), right? I haven't got the driver yet, but this is my understanding of how it...

^ I'm looking for one, so if this goes the way it seems like it will, then we need one more person to take BCRSS' spot in the first group - if he is willing to give it to us that way.
