You have a very nice setup and understand why the K-horns would max out on the Denon AVR-4520ci..That said, it really wouldn't make any sense adding an external amp to your setup would it?

I have only seen one and it was done by a Klipsch employee and if what he said rang true to anyone else it would be hard to argue that you could find a sub better for $600 to $800--The RSW-15 was...

I'm going to let others compare numbers from specs on websites, but honestly that can only give you a rough idea how they compare and then you need to consider your own acoustic conditions.

That's not the question--Another way to frame it would be, in the real world do all/any of those "under $1000" subwoofers perform as well as either of the two Klipsch subwoofers?

That would be a sweet deal. That said, I do wonder about the downside if the amp/preamp goes out would you do? After all, it is getting close to a decade old electronics, which makes it different...

Not all Klipsch subs are the same...I wonder if Klipsch still sells the preamp/amp to the RSW-15 (and RSW-12)? Imo picking one up in the used market for under $800 would be a steal!

Fwiw, the original RF-7s/RC-7 used a 1.75" compression driver and the RF-83/RC-64 used a 1.25 CD--When Klipsch brought back the RF-7II they kept the 1.75" CD driver and matched the RC-64II to it.

You aren't missing anything from that comment--not much difference on paper insofar as output specs are concerned. :)
