I bought one of these when I had a VC-25 center. Adjustable from 19" to 23" wide and sits right over the center. Was from Amazon. Solid hardwood and very sturdy.

I'm sure this question has been asked already, but I can't seem to find an answer. I recently purchased a Pioneer SC-1222-K receiver and RW-12d sub from Newegg. I love the sub and would like to replace my Polk Monitor series speakers with a pair of RB-41's, an RC-42, and a pair of RS-41's. The power rating on these speakers is 50w RMS/200w Max. My Pioneer receiver can put out 120w to each speaker with 5 channels being driven. My listening room is small, about 1200cf. I listen at -15db from reference. Would I have problems with distortion or blowing these speakers out?

As long as you set up the MCACC correctly so the lower frequency stuff gets crossed over, you should be fine. Power ratings are always an iffy thing.
post #21125 of 35269
I have an Elite SC-61 which is essentially identical to the 1222. It's rated at 120wpc (and technically 125 on the SC-61) but in reality will put out less with more channels driven. Even if it did put out claimed wattage, those speakers will be fine.

Is this typical for Klipsch hardware? just got a RC-42 II which has two woofers shown below. Right is not symetrical.

Left woofer



Right woofer
post #21127 of 35269
That's just weird.
post #21128 of 35269
What's the difference?
post #21129 of 35269
on the right subwoofer the tiny dimple (not at the center) isn't in the same position like on the left woofer so for the right woofer the entire center circular shape is not symetrical.

post #21130 of 35269
Yeah I definitely see it. That's very weird.

Is it possible to get a replacement? That would bug me, but it probably isn't impacting performance.
post #21131 of 35269
Yes I can return to where I purchased .

I also contacted Klipsch cause I don't believe I'm the only one with this with the way assembly lines are today. The Klipsch person pretended or just wasn't knoweledgable enough to know what I was talking about. I sent them a photo afterwords. I was told that the section affected is the "dust cover", I was wondering if the dimple is just for visual effects or if it has some acoustic properties.

You might want to sit a little more to the left for that so called sweet spot. tongue.gif But that is weird. Now I have to go take all the grills off my 52ii's to see if any of mine are off center lol.

Thanks waiting on RC-64 to come and my system will be complete built the cabinets wide enough to hold rf-7s and deep enough allow room for them and to fit RC-64 center. System sounds cleaner and fills up bigger room now; I was building a new house and had enough funds from selling, my old rf-62 system and sub-12, to justify new sw-115 dual subs and adding RC-64, and in wall and in ceiling surrounds think they sound much better than my old rs-52 rb-61 combo.

You did an excellent job snake. Very clean! I have seen your pics in the Klipsch forums.

I was thinking the same thing. I bet if you post this in all the speakers thread every owner will check biggrin.gif in fact I just stood in front of my bathroom mirror shirtless for a Lil' bit and I don't think I'm symmetrical eek.gif
post #21136 of 35269
I don't think it will have any affect on sound properties, but I'd want to replace it because it'd bother me being that I usually leave the grills off on my RF7 II's and RC64 II.

Cerametallic woofers are purty. biggrin.gif

yep, come to think of it my wife isn't symetrical either, and she hadn't had a gold tan like that since we went skinny dipping many Suns ago. I won't talk about the sweet spot.

Just wanted to post a qucik follow up. I called Klipsch last week, told them about the problems with my Quintet center and said I saw it was a common problem according to AVS. Had to email an image of my Amazon invoice to customer service and that's it. My replacement arrived today smile.gif

Did they provide a label for returning the defective speaker?

there isn't supposed to be ANY dimple. it's merely an optical illusion. the surface itself should be smooth conical shape.

I suggest it's optical or your driver was hit at some point... they dent very easily. but it usually does not affect performance

Actually your correct , I looked real close and it is an optical illusion with respect to the dimple, but this illusion should be in the center not off axis. nothing was hit is just that woofer wasn't put together properly.

I can move my point around when looking at my RC64ii's by simply standing to one side or the other.

Is the Reference series really better sounding than say the K series? Worth the extra money?

Crutchfield is now selling the Heresy for $849 in case anyone is interested.

The best thing to do is go listen for yourself because "worth the extra money" is extremely subjective. I'd feel bad saying 'yes' and then you get them home and feel differently.

I'm not familiar with the amp/pre-amp combination you are considering but they will suffice to drive the RF-82IIs. If they are going to be used for Home Theater you would want to get the RC-62II and appropriate surround speakers as well...The only other advice I can give is that if you can get a deal on the RF-7II/RC-64II and hear them for yourself they may be the last Front soundstage you'd ever own, but I would definitely stay in budget and not overspend.
post #21149 of 35269
I would suggest to you that the Audiolab series 8200 has been described in reviews as being somewhat "bright-sounding" and " clinical" in character, which seems a bad match for Klipsch speakers.

You might want to check with some knowledgeable professionals (that do not sell Klipsch speakers...lol), about that.

Musical Fidelity or Arcam or Creek might be good choices to consider.
