I want another sub and with the 82ii's I just would not have enough room up front. I think it will still be an improvement over the 52ii's. Once I get the front heights (RB61ii's) I think I will be satisfied for the time being lol. They arrive on Tuesday :)[/quote]Congrats. The Rf-62 II is more than enough. I would spend the extra on good subs. I have a the rf-62 II and cant be happier, getting more SVS PC12-plus or Ultra and later add a second.Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 4

Are you going to use it sub-less?

One issue is that most here on AVS don't talk about is some people have a "Tin Ear " as Bose sounds great to them because they can't tell the difference between Bose & a high quality speaker like a Klipsch
post #25893 of 35218
Bose fans bought into the "big sound from small speakers" hype. Not sound quality.
post #25894 of 35218
I listened to a Bose's "top of line" system in their demo room when I was stuck at an outlet mall a few months back. It sounded really bad compared to my setup and was several thousand (I can't remember the exact price, but it was over $3000). Granted it included a built in control system, RF remote, etc...

The sales person asked what I thought after the presentation and I told him my system at home sounds much better, he acted like I was nuts. I really feel for folks who'll never hear what a real home theater surround sound system can sound like.

I believe small speakers will never sound good, to me anyways after owning my RF-83's. I'm not sure if the issue with small speakers is room response (more low frequency drivers will help reduce room modes, this is a proven fact), but they sounded like crap to me. I'm sure a lot of it is driver size too.

Also, for those little drivers in the bass module (or whatever Bose called it) to produce sound pressure waves with the same energy as a several big drivers (6 in total for a pair of RF-83's), they'd have to move in and out so far, they'd probably rip apart. Pure marketing BS.

These RF-7's are $2k to the door with TV15 code in the cart

from another Forum, don't know if he posts here...
post #25897 of 35218
I'm pretty sure that's where I got my RF-7 II's and RC-64 II, the cherry is a bit darker than the grade A which I actually prefer as it better matches other wood in the space. It's a great deal and very hard to beat at the prices available. I think I ordered them on eBay about a year ago at a comparable price to the above deal.

FASTSLAPPY I purchased my Cornwalls new in 1979 and glad I did looking back now that Klipsch has gone to MDF like my Heresy II ( I purchased them new too) that I love the way they sound

but I like the older birch plywood cabinets with removable backs. I have never listened to pair of Cornwall III but I have jammed the Heresy III

that I thought hit a bit harder then my HII. IMHO.

Cornwall I & Cornwall III apples to oranges , the woofers are the only similar driver & even that the CWI had the square magnets in the woofs

I M O a diminished quality in a CW III

Hey Fastslappy--Congratulations are almost in order. You are 8 posts away from being the #1 poster in the Klipsch Owners Thread! smile.gif

maybe that's why the guy in Baton Rouge is down to $1150 for his Cherry Cornwall III http://batonrouge.craigslist.org/ele/4045503383.html

Lol glad i didn't spend 4k on a pair then eek.gifwink.gif
post #25903 of 35218
The guy i bought the Cornwalls from had a set of Heresy 1s. They look nothing like the pics you see. Just like the corns they are way bigger than what you get from pics.

They looked really awesome biggrin.gif

It's cheaper to find a CWI & restore them
If I was buying only NEW Shiney stuff I'd get the Crites CornScala knockdown build & THEN have a local cab shop assy & veneer them in a custom exotic wood & it would still cost Ya less & have a better speaker to boot biggrin.gif

Yes...But............. when you close your eyes and listen to Bob's 3 way Cornscala you will think they are Klipsch and your VISA will have larger monthly payments..

I don't want my VISA bill to get larger. tongue.gif
post #25909 of 35218
Anybody know how much weight a RC-62II can safely hold? I have a panasonic S60 50". I'm guessing it would be a bad idea to put the TV on top of the speaker, but just thought I'd ask.
post #25910 of 35218
A little doghouse is easy enough to build/buy. Look at the photos for this thread & you'll see some examples.

google: tv riser

I had one from wood technology for a VC-25 but I think it'd just a hair small for the RC-62

Louis don't you mean smaller monthly payments ?
post #25913 of 35218
I have an RC-62II and while I don't have anything on it, I think it would easily hold a 50" LCD. If you are concerned you might lay something flat on it to distribute the weight evenly, but I doubt it needs it. I would also trying to contact Klipsch about it as I'm sure you are not the first person to want to do this. Good luck with it.

What I did when I lived in an apartment was buy some C strut from home depot and attach it to the back of my TV stand. Then I mounted to TV to the strut. You may have to reinforce the shelf some in order to bolt the strut to it. I used 2x4's at the base, hidden up underneath the stand, and along the back of each shelf.

My RC62ii holds my 55 in TV just fine. I also have the TV Riser from Wood Technology. I used it when I had the RC52ii. Its a tad small for the 62ii though.

Now that I think about how much New Cornwalls cost from Klipsch now VS Crites 3 way Cornscala ... Yes you can purchase more sound for less $$ at Crites.

I am lucky I am in such a small den...... almost stock Cornwall I about 7 feet apart and FLP same distance back and towed "IN" equal triangle sound

AWESOME in 30 plus years they have never been in such a small room and WOW HUGE difference now. I am Happy, sure I would like to own

a pair of those Huge 402 horns etc like the Cinema Series but way out of my budget and a waste in this small den.

Thanks for all the help guys. I'll probably also give klipsch a call just to see what they say too.

Hey guys need advice: just bought a set of RF-82 II's and need to know if a Denon 1913 is good to power them with. I got a pretty good deal on the receiver ($202 new in box) but I don't know if it's powerful enough to power these bad boys. If need be I can return it and search for a higher end model.

Well that all depends on how loud do you like your music and movies. The 1913 will power them just fine but if you like to push the throttle and really open them up then a little more horsepower would be required to get the most out of them. I personally like a clean simple system and dont use an external amp. I have a Denon 3312 and it drives my system just fine. The 3312 also has pre-outs if someday I would like to experiment with external amps which I may but for now I'm very satisfied with how it sounds when pushed hard.

2 channel it be just OK but in a 5 channel set-up No ,
bench test http://www.hometheater.com/content/denon-avr-1913-av-receiver-ht-labs-measures

the video section is bad
if you need a bedroom set-up down the road it's fair for that with smaller bookshelves speaks
if you just want something to run 2 channel for now OK
but really for a 5 channel Klipsch set-up with speakers like 81's or 61's to match the 82's it's gonna be lacking
$200 is a amazing price
