some help choosing front speakers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, my name is Jeff and this is my first post on this forum. I am currently building a 5.1 setup for my living room and am in need of help choosing the front towers.

currently I have a Pioneer vsx-1022k powering 2 old sony towers for the front and some Klipsch KG1.5's for the rears. I also have a Klipsch RW-12 subwoofer.

There is some Klipsch rf-82 II's for sale locally for 700, which is my budget for the front speakers. I am also looking at the klipsch WF-35 which are currently going for 300-350 on newegg. The center channel will be either an RC-62 II or a WC-24, depending on which towers I choose.

Which is the better setup? It will be an all around setup with equal attention paid to music/movies/gaming.

Also, Will my Vsx-1022k power these speakers, or will I have to look into external amps?

Thanks very much, I have already learned much from this forum

Hey Jeff, welcome to the forum!!!

I don't have any experience with Klipsh speakers but many here do. Hopefully some answers or suggestions will come your way soon.

Nice looking equipment so far, Pioneer makes awesome AVR's.

The Klipsch RF-82's are very efficient so the receiver should be fine. If you want a good deal what I did was get them from amazon HERE but then clicked where it says USED. and you will find some legit dealers there who sell open box.

Thanks for the info yall, I think I'm set on the rf-82s as long as the guy still has them in a couple of weeks.
