I did. Mine were shipped freight though. There were a few microscopic spots on the edges that you could not see from 4 feet away but what do you expect with a hand speaker.

My B stock Klipsch RF-7IIs came shipped freight and on a pallet standing up. They had some wood showing (maybe a 1/4") on a couple of corners but NO GOUGES whatsoever. I covered up with a sharpie marker. I would ship back even if it were B stock-so those A stock definately would be gone and replaced.

Mine had a small piece on the top that chiped off. Looks like the laminate was sticking out just a touch. I was able to glue the piece back on.

My RF 7 II Speaker Serial numbers are 660 003 apart Is that normal to be that far apart ?

My b stock RF-7II's came with only a very very tiny mark that I Sharpied and I could no longer tell you where the mark is now. My dealer delivered them to me though.

Looks good, at least you have room for a sub.

I think this is the first time I have been quoted so much :-)

Well Klipsch has decided to replace my speakers. I had the option to go pick it up my self, but I don't have the vehicle, nor the time. Since I already reside in AR, they don't need to be in transit too long (From Hope,AR to Fayetteville, AR).

I am crossing my speakers that they arrive in once peace. Hopefully I get consecutive serial numbers. If not, I am past that at this point.

Do you have base traps of any sort?

I plan to get 2x2x4 bass traps for the front wall. Its cool, because he has some basically to fit my short walls.

Hey guys,

I bought a pair of CHT18.2's.....but I just noticed that the Epics are on sale for $799 shipped.

Think I should add an Epic to the Mix?

I posted in the subwoofer forum, but people are more familiar w/ my set up over here.
post #14321 of 35267
you can get two Epik legends for $100 more.

Honesty cons. serials are not as important as they used to be.. in the old days with wood grain of the heritage series it was more important...but with the quality of the vaneer nowadays it's less important. They can match it well so dont sweat it.

Comparable new Klipsch speakers would run about $2500, or more. Those speakers are roughly 7 to 10 years old. This is considered almost new in the used speaker world. There is nothing wrong with "old" speakers, and many times the older speakers are better than the newer ones.

My sub-woofer was built in 1987, and my main R/L speakers were built in the mid to late '70s. In the case of my sub, there are some newer models which are better for about the same price I paid in 1987. However, in the case of my R/L speakers, that is not true, by a long shot (it would cost me way over double the cost for comparable new speakers).

Thanks everyone for your quick reply's. I think I now have good starting point to offer him. I will let you guys know if I become the new owner of this set. Thanks again!!

About 2 minutes later, the back right did it just as loud. I took the speakers and receiver back to best buy. The guy told me that it was the receiver since they were doing it at different times. They let me swap out the speakers too just incase. He also talked me into going with a Yamaha 667 receiver. It's already packed back up for my wife to take back and get the Denon AVR-791. That Yamaha didn't come close to the Denon.

Do you think the guy at best buy was right about it being the receiver?

I got a new denon 791 and new set of klipsch quintet speakers. They are doing the popping noise again. Anyone have any ideas?

Hey guys, I was going to order a 5.0 set from Aperion (the Verus Grand series) but they are backordered until May and honestly I am tired of waiting, I am ready to buy!!! I had the opportunity to go and audition some Klipsch Speakers and feel in love with their sound! Movies and music sounded great! I do have a couple of questions though I am debating on witch set to get. I live in an apartment but I am planning to move to a house within the year. I want to make one purchase and make it the right one. Here are my question:

I am planning on getting the following:

2x RF-62 II Fronts
1x RC-62 II Center
2x RB-51 II or 2x RS-52 II surounds

or

2x RF-82 II Fronts
1x RC-62 II Center
2x RB-51 II or 2x RS-52 II surounds

1. Are all the speakers timbre match?
2. If I decide on getting the RS-52 II, would it be possible to but them on speaker stands about 2-3 feet away from my listening position and about 4 feet high or should I just stick with the RB-51 II for surround duty.
3. Would I have any issues powering up these speakers with an Onkyo TX-SR608?

Thanks ahead of time of your help guys! Like I said I am ready to buy!
post #14327 of 35267
I too had Aperions 6Ts across the front and 5 series for surrounds. I thought about purchasing the Verus but am very happy with my Klipsch RF-7IIs. No comparison from the 6Ts to RF-7IIs. The whole family agrees the Klipsch are in a diffrent league...best so far. For what I paid for 3 RF-7IIs it was less than the Aperions.

1x RC-62 II Center

I went with the rf-62 setup with had the rb-51's in the rear and wasnt real impressed with the 51's and went to the rb-61's in the rear and liked them much better, and have the rs-52's as my side surrounds in 7.1. Timbre match if you mean have the exact speaker size matching, i personally didnt notice a difference, from what i know from being on here so long is that as long as you stay in the reference series you should be ok. You can always do like i did, and upgrade later.

you should fine with the stand for the rs-52's i prefer to mount mine up high, because when i had my bookshelf rb-51 on a stand 3-4 feet high just didnt look right to me, but thats just me. These speakers dont require a lot of power so the receiver have will work fine, since they are very efficient speakers.

IIRC you replaced both the AVR and the speakers but still have the same problem? I guess that leaves your speaker wiring, your power source, or your signal source. What did you have playing when you heard these pops?

It is you that has to like the sound.

Check out Onkyo and Denon receivers for features you like and price range you are willing to pay.

Sitting here reading how you guys are enjoying them! *envy*

Lots of Klipsch owners have gone with Emotiva amps. I personally bought a used Rotel RMD-1095 and couldn't be happier with it's performance with my Reference series. So much better than the Pio SC-25, I couldn't believe it because the Pio is no slouch. I think the huge toroid and the large capacitor array is the ticket to great speaker performance.

I'm sorry, what does that mean? I'm really new to this. Would that be a good surround speaker?
