Guess wall depth could restrict that.

Greetings fellow Klipsch owners. I'm looking at upgrading my current setup after moving out of a small room, 18X18 feet, and into the basement which is 15 foot deep by 35 feet wide.

I have what I consider to be a modest 7.1 setup: Two WF-35 fronts, WC-24 center, 2 WS-24 surrounds, 2 polk audio two-way surrounds and a JBL12 sub. Also, running it with a Denon 2112.

I think it is a great sounding system. But I'm getting the upgrade bug. I've been thinking about the RF 82II along with upgrading the center and sub. Am I crazy since I already like what I have? I guess I'm just afraid of spending all this money only to be making a minor improvement.

Thanks!

I suggest consider upgrading your subwoofer with two more capable subs or the very least a nice one. There are plenty of great options to choose from. SVS or Rythmik for example.

You may not experience much difference between your current system and going with the 82 lineup. If you want a substantial upgrade you would want to consider the RF-7ii lineup.

Good luck with the upgradeitus.

Best Regards

Thank you for your quick response. Do you think the SW-112 would suffice for a room this big? I do like the SVS SB1000. But I can get the SW-112 for the same price.

Whoa! I think the RF-7ii are out of my price range. I'm thinking my budget is about 600-700 each on fronts.

Find a used pair of La Scalas, Cornwalls or Chorus

Another option would be to check your local used market--In that price range you may be able to pick up 2 original RF-7s and an RC-7 and it would be a substantial upgrade to what you have and the RF-82IIs.

Those are nice speakers, but I don't think their footprint would be conducive to his space unless he put his front soundstage on another wall and then deciding what center channel to use would also need to be factored in.
post #22092 of 35398
Absolutely!!! Just remember NO warranty with used, so of they are less than 5 years old, use this fact to bargain.
post #22093 of 35398
hockeynut, your space appears rather large and open, two subs would be better than one. Since your budget is around 600 I suggest considering the Klipsch RW-12d from newegg, which is listing it for 300 a piece. This has been a rather popular choice for a lot of folks lately.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882780078

The RW-12 does not dig as deep as some single $600 subs but it may be more beneficial for you to have two equals than one overall better performing one. Unless of course you plan to save up for another one down the road and in that case go for the biggest and best sub you can.

List price for the RF-7iis are high but you can often find better prices for them from authorized dealers, AVS is one and Acoustic Sound Design is another popular one.

Best Regards
KvE

hockeynut, although I like the used speaker market, I'd buy subs new unless they are like little baby chickens: cheap, cheap, cheap...good advise above on subs

before entertaining all of our suggestions , How does it now sound in the new room over what that system sounded like in the old room ?


are now turning up the volume ?

& if you are turning the volume up do you notice a SQ difference ?

RF-82 will work & you will notice the difference ,over what you have now .
some of the older Klipsch that are being suggested are all great speakers KG5.5 , Fortes would be a consideration as well
the older used Klipsch are well worth the effort to find & will save $ & you actually will get a better speaker as well

22 years ago, the MSRP for them was $530, they don't make 'em like that anymore (4 Heritage exceptions). But, if they did they be about $1200!!'
post #22100 of 35398
Can I connect to my Surround Sound Speakers both Surround Sound and Rear Speaker outputs so I can get both outputs on one Speaker? I’m using Klipsch RF 52II that have two sets of connectors.

Congratulations but putting an MSRP that high and comparing them to the Heritage line negates the fact that there is nothing in that line or any other Klipsch speakers in the last 20 years that fit that description should make one pause before making that statement, imo.

No, I wouldn't. If you are running 5 channels connect them to the SS terminal and tell the AVR that you are running 5 channels.

I started my own thread and asked this question there but I think I will get an answer here in the Klipsch thread.

I am looking into getting some Klipsch speakers and am wondering how much of a difference is there between the RF-52 and RF-52 II speakers? Is it merely cosmetic like how Polks Monitor/Tsi line gets renamed or are there audible differences? I ask because the RF-52 is cheaper but I can only find the RF II center.

I currently own some Energy speakers and am quite pleased with them. That being said after listening to the Klipsch at Best Buy, Pioneer FS52 towers, and the Energy RC-70's I can safely say that I really prefer the sound of Klipsch. Are there any other speaker manufacturers which have a similar sound to Klipsch I should consider before making a decision? Also if anyone has ever auditioned the RF-52's what were your impressions since what I heard were the Klipsch KF line and not the RF line.

Thanks

My first post, I figured a Klipsch thread is a good place to start. I ran across a deal on a pair of P38. I power them through a 5 year old Yamaha RX-V663 7 channel. I also have a pair of Polk RM7400T as the surround speakers and a Polk sub. I would like to update mainly the power source.

I have cruised around this site a little, I like it. I'm sure I'll find answers to my questions here.
post #22105 of 35398
If you are considering upgrading your amplification for those P38s then you might want to check out Emotiva's XPA-5 amp.
Your receiver has preouts so you could continue using it as a processor and hookup an external amp for better performance.

So perhaps they'd be 2 bits a pair? It's just an opinion, you would pause, I say so without the slightest pause. But, we can agree to dis-agree, agreeably.

Many people think that Bic speakers have a similar sound to Klipsch speakers. They are good quality, made in America and cost less.

As a owner of a full bic set up and a klipsch guy I can tell you they sound very much alike, the bic are just not as harsh on the high end . At least to my ears.

Wondering if anyone has heard a set of old klipsch RF-3 II towed and center?
