Thanks smile.gif It's RF-82 . But I would like to buy the new model RS-52 II , not the old one smile.gif So RS-62 II is not a better choice? .

This is a very subjective hobby we've chosen. Many pretend they know specific answers to certain things but they really don't. What may work for them may not for you in your HT. I use RS speakers as surrounds because I don't have a huge room and they diffuse the sound for a wider sound field and don't throw sound directly at you like the RB series will.

Rule of thumb is to stick to the same series for lcr. Anything else and your taking your chances. It may sound better but I couldnt say.

The RS-52 II's will work fine for you. The 62's are beasts and recommended for the RF-7's. I will be buying the RS-62 for my system. You can get the 62's if you want. They will perform better than the 52's. No one's NOT going to TELL you what to buy. These are all recommendations for you to consider.

The most important thing to remember is to keep your LCR timbre-matched. The surrounds can be of different series or manufacturers.

Ok . I think I will go for the 52 II 's. They are cheaper also smile.gif But I have the old RF 82's. Do you think I take a big chance to
buy RS-52 II and RC-62II senter? The old series are not available here and I dont want to buy used ones.

Iam going to buy a subwoofer also. klipsch SW-115? http://www.klipsch.com/sw-115

or should i go for another one smile.gif

Thanks for answer. Anyone here have the old RF-82 with the new RC-62 II or RS-52 II ?
post #22508 of 35176
The Craigslist post for the Quartets for $400 has been removed. It looks like that ship has sailed, and just when I got my hopes up. frown.gif

I guess I'll keep looking. I'm not in any hurry, and except for the Quartets I really didn't have my heart set on anything. I'm hoping I know a good deal when I see it.

Thanks everybody, for the advice and the help.

With the RS-52 II's, there will be no problem running with your mains. The RC-62 II Won't be an exact match with the sound of the RF-82's. If buying new is your only option, then get the RC-62 II.

The SW-115 is a good sub. Most people go for subs made by other companies. I have an SVS sub and am quite happy with it.

I don't know anything about the specific speakers you asked about but I do use Klipsch RVX-54 as my surrounds. They sound very good. I also use Klipsch RSX-5's for my rears and although they aren't floorstanders, they do have horn tweeters too.

BTW, sometimes it takes longer than an hour to get a response from a forum.

People use floorstanders as surrounds. They will do fine as surrounds. Just make sure that at least the tweeter isn't blocked by anything to prevent hearing it from the listening position.

All depends on what you want to use them for and your room configuration.

I'm buying an AT screen and I want to use three for my front stage. Going to go with the lower model for my surrounds. I'm going to start off with a 5.2 system at first. But they are going to be mainly for movies in my HT. The room is 20x14 and the AT screen is 12ft wide

First time poster, long time lurker.

Looking to build a home theater and music system for the basement. Big room 20 x 28. More concerned about music. I like hard rock and metal. Plans include a Marantz 5007 reciever and the Klipsch rf 82 ii and the corresponding 62 center and 52 surrounds. Probably a SVS or Rythmic sub. Any comments or suggestions in general? More specifically, I have listened to other speakers, like Polk, but none seem to have the livelyness or punch that Klipsch have. Before I pull the trigger, any other brands I should seek out and listen to in the same price range? Anything with a similiar sound or kick if you will.

Considering changing out my system and going with a full Klipsch Reference setup. Looking for my final retirement system.
Currently have kit built speakers from ACI - Audio Concepts that is now out of business. Jaguars for mains, Essence center, dual Titan IIs for subs, 4 Emeralds for surrounds. Room is 18 feet wide by 22 feet long with 8 foot ceiling and the front mains are 7 feet apart due to corner fireplace and front doorway opening. No other opening. Usage is 90% blu-ray and 10% music so looking for home theater impact. Not able to fit the older wide style Klipsch box speakers in.

So considering the RF-7 IIs mains, RC-64 II center, pair of RS62 IIs for side surrounds, pair of RB-81 IIs for rear surrounds.
Might go with a single or pair of Seaton Submersives for subs or keep using my Titans for a while.
I would think this sounds pretty dang good. No where near here that I can find to audition this stuff as so many audio stores have closed or no longer stock the higher priced stuff. I last heard Klipsch about 30 years ago and those were the Klipschorns.

I just want to get some idea of how the RF-7s sound so my question is--- If you are an owner of the RF7s, what speakers did you previously own? Did you come from anything higher priced or considered competitive to these? Did not find much on the web for reviews.

Just getting the bug to do something different and have sons to hand down my current stuff to.
Just wish Klipsch offered something inbetween the RF-7s and the Palladium as there is a large gap there in price.
Thanks!!

For a front stage, I would use the F-30's. WDST's aren't very good for LCR use.

Welcome to the Klipsch Thread!

You have a very good system in mind. Should do very well for you. I know both SVS and Rythmik both make very good subs. I went with an SVS PC13-Ultra because I don't have much space for a conventional sub. It is awesome with rock and metal. Well, this IS a Klipsch thread. I think we'd all recommend Klipsch speakers to you. lol

I would def go with the RF62ii's rather than the F-30's. The Reference line is much better sounding.

I guess opinions vary. I demoed the lower-mid reference speakers along with the Synergy F30, and i preferred the F30.

I owned the F10's before and the Synergy line is good but my ears prefer the Reference. Either way they are Klipsch and they make great speakers in all their speaker lines

There is a large gap in price between those two and I'm sure both sound great.  I don't think I've ever heard the RF series.  I have heard the Palladium and it is outstanding.

 

If you can deal with physically (much) larger speakers, you can get a middle price point and in fact, beat them both in sound quality.  Have you heard of the Jubilee?  It was originally designed to become the Klipschorn II.  For various reasons, it's now in the cinema lineup.  I'll spare you the story.  Do a search on various forums for Jubilee & get a pot of coffee.

post #22530 of 35176
The Jubilee --- um I think it has ZERO chance of passing the WAF!! I bet it sounds great but just not going to fit in well in my living room!
Thanks for the suggestion.
