RF-82II is far from a 'starter system' and I definitely have no missing mids in mine.
post #21812 of 35263
Are you lumping all Klipsch horns into the category of lacking in mids? Have you heard RF7's, RF83's, Khorns, Lascalas, Cornwalls?

WTF... come on man, jesus.
Please don't post misleading and true statements.
post #21814 of 35263
klipsch are loud and bright systems probably why most movie theaters use them

but there much better speaker companies out there then just klipsch,

i am a big klipsch fan i just built my uncles theater setup using all klipsch and my brother n law has all klipsch

there great speakers but you cant compare rf82s to the mid or higher end bowers and wilkins or montior golds or paradigm studio's systems

most speaker systems have 3 way set ups,

i still currently have klipsch r 5650's as my rears and dual rw12s for the subs,

eventually i will replace the rears to match the fronts,


"not lumping all klipsch systems " klipsch does make some nice p-37 and others in that line you notice those are 3 ways also"
post #21815 of 35263
Three of the options I listed that are also 3way. Although that doesn't define a "good" speaker.

There are 31 flavors because we all have different , and glad you know what you like! I was responding to the mid range comment, as Khorns and LaScalas have it in spades. I wouldn't make such general comments about Klipsch using the RF82 to define the brand.

It's all in what you are looking for. That's why there are so many different speaker companies because sound is subjective, and some prefer the sound of Klipsch over Bowers and others. Just because that's what you prefer, does not automatically make them a better speaker. Also, 3 way does not automatically = superior sound. Tell me how many 3 way speakers are used in studio mixing. Once you find out that answer, your '3 way is best' opinion may change a bit. The best thing for people to do is go out and listen to different speakers and see what they like, but not everyone has that luxury. This guy is not going to be disappointed in Klipsch at all.

absolutlely


every one has there preference's

i never said klipsch was a bad speaker

we all have our preferences,

even on the b&w section i highly recomended the rw12s subs for there price point and preformance levels

my uncles system "after he blew his velodyne spl1000r" we bought him 2 rw12s for half the price and fills the room much better,

i been doing this for about 20 years now

I give him credit for being honest, but i really wanted two more speakers. Not everyone has the perfect room though, I still want two more regardless of what he said.
Hubby has already cut walls and ran wiring, he wants two more as well.

Anyone else think I'd be wasting money? Anyone else with a not so perfect room enjoying 7.1 out here?
If you had not already cut walls and ran wires I would tell you to use front heights instead of back surrounds. I think you get more benefit that way. Especially in a smallish room.

Just wanted to know if the rf-82ii with the rc62ii gonna be good enough for my room which is 21x16..or should I upgrade to the rf7ii series..and Im mostly gonna use them for movies and gaming..Any help would help..again if this sounds dumb I'm sorry I'm new at this and I already got a offer of a pair of rf82ii and rc62ii for 1400 shipped..
That's a good deal and you wont be disappointed by any means. I would also get the Denon 3313 but that's just my preference. You really should go listen to some different receivers because they all sound a bit different and have different setups etc...but the Denon 3313 is a good receiver but then again so is the Pioneer.

I have my 7.1 in a small bedroom with rears and sides and there is a benefit to moving from 5.1to 7.1, obviously movies with the 7.1 audio is one. Id suggest do it, plus, the B20s aren't that expensive. You could get them from acousticsounddesign.com an authorized online dealer. Give them a call and they'll give you a good price. Amazon might have them too.
post #21821 of 35263
thanks for the input everyone. will continue shopping and post a picture of the room this weekend. i think it would be helpful if you can see how the room is laid out for a better understanding of what I am trying to accomplish with very little wall space to work with.

there is 3 excelent brand speakers should be around the same price range


i just went from rf52 ii to bowers 683 with no regrets

but klipsch horns are great sounding but lack mids but great prices and great for starter systems
Please don't use a blanket statement to say B&W 683 or CM9 is 10x better than RF-82 II because you went from RF-52 II to 683 with no regrets. Have you actually compared RF-82 II to 863 or CM9?

3-way is not necessarily better than 2-way. Manufacturers use 3-way because they can't cover the full bandwidth with just 2 drivers while maintaining a flat response. They can't minimize cost by using more xo networks and drivers in their products.

Speakers are subjective. It's perfectly fine to come here and say you prefer 683 over your old RF-52 but saying 683 is better than klipsch is just false.

Btw, the OP says he intends to use the RF-82 II's for movies and games, which Klipsch is particularly good at.

Thank you all for your comments..that guy saying the B&W were better had me thinking but still had to go with the rf82ii and I had to go with the pioneer sc-65 as I found it for 1000 shipped..I looked throughout a lot of reviews of both of them and all with good reviews so I had to go with the look I just had it visioned already the rf82ii hooked up to the pioneer sc65 and it looks like a beauty..
All I have left in my budget now is I'm looking for a good subwoofer 800 being the max..any thoughts on outlaw lfm-1ex..

How come your post count never goes up from 30? Reason being is your not making any sense or contributing to this thread so they froze your count....
post #21825 of 35263
Hey all, new here. Just wanted to say hi. Although I'm getting into 2 channel systems and just purchased a tube amp, I have owned my original Klipsch Chorus II's since new and have recently put in new networks, titanium mid and tweet diaphragms and a band-pass board. I have an RC62 center and RS52II rears. I use an Emotiva XPA-2 for the Chorus II's and and XPA-3 for the center and rears.

Since I just got the integrated tube amp, I am now trying to find some nice bookshelf speakers that would give me a warm natural presence. Any ideas?

Josh

I would recommend the RB-81 II or the RB-61 II.

For around 800 I would definitely get the VTF-15H. Here is a link just scroll down and check it out. They have it for 879.00 but maybe if you called them they would give you a better price. I've heard great things about this subwoofer.

Need some input here please.
I have narrowed my center channel (according to size and budget) to the best buy klipsch icon kc-25 or the klipsch synergy c-20. If you guys could point me in the best direction and give me a little input on which way to go.

Help a brother out.

I can't help you with the two speakers you are considering but think another bic fh65b or their appropriate center channel would be your best bet to match your mains...Nice Theater room you have there, btw.

Thanks zen, i know i would be best served matching the bic fh-lcr with the bic fh65b but mt space is not condusive to the size. I am an inch short. (Enter exgirlfriend joke here) i am just trying to stick with a horn product that will fit my dimensions.

My neighbors and I had a yard sale in our cul-de-sac this morning. We then shared some adult beverages in the afternoon outside in one of our first nice spring days this year. I took one RF-7ii, turned it around to face out my front door (I didn't move it to the door, I just turned it around), cranked up the volume, played a Pandora channel I created called "the club" and enjoyed (I have very good neighbors on my cul-de-sac). I am powering them with a Crown XLS 1500. One neighbor who hasn't personally seen the system asked, "where are your speakers?" I said, "in my house." The next question was, "what in the hell are they?" ... and I wasn't even driving the amp to the hairline below clipping where they play really loud. I love these things! Now all I have to do is build my lilwrecker sub for total domination.
post #21839 of 35263
Hi all,

I am trying to build a HT system. i am new to this and will be stepping up from a HTIB. I got a good deal on a receiver from Costco which is why I am building HT system. else it would have been done in a year or two.

I will although build it slowly. I was set to buy the Pioneer floor standing speakers because of their reviews and price. However, when I listened to them yesterday in the store I found them not clean and crisp. next to it was the polk cti 300 I guess or soemthing which sounded more clean and crisp, however the klipsch next to them sounded even better to me. Just in terms of clarity and crispness.

Can you guys recommend an entry level floor standing klipsch speakers. I also read that the center has to match.

I will add the sub and the center and surround later. just the L/R for now.

Any advice?
post #21840 of 35263
What price range do you have for L/Rs? Go as big as you can afford in the reference line.
