This!!! I've been wanting to know since the Ref Premiere series came out!

According to Klipsch reps, the RF7-II's are still the flagships of the series. Would still love a comparison/shootout.

Unfortunately the one guy I know who owns a pair of RF7ii is not around. I can't really form a judgement based on memory, it's been over a year since I heard 'em.

I thought they hinted at a Reference Premier replacement for the RF-7ii coming at some point in the future, that would be interesting to see.

I definitely recall hearing that. I wonder if it'll debut before CES 2016.

great review, thanks for posting it up. I'd love to see more thoughts included after run-in (typically 30 hours on all RF's I've listened to over the years) and better positioned up front. If it was already making your hairs stand up - then it should pop them clean out!

I listened to them (R-7 II) a couple of weeks ago. Power, they have, and plenty of it. If you like highs they are for you. I like highs, but these were too much for me. Initially, they knocked my socks off. However, there is no doubt in my mind that after listening to them for a prolonged period of time fatigue would set in. They come at you very strong. I just wanted to add that they are also very bright.

Which speaker did you listen to? RP-280F or R7ii?

Why take the risk? Even this review for THESE specific speakers isn't THAT great: "Yes, I've heard more refined speakers..."

It's not like you don't have other choices with brands that are actually reputable.

LOL, way to take this sentence out of context:

So far, I've heaped nothing but praise on this system. You might be wondering, what are its weaknesses? I'm not willing to say that sound quality is one of them. Frankly, Klipsch delivers exactly what I'd expect if I plunked down five grand for such a system: power, precision, nuance—it's all there. Yes, I've heard more refined speakers, but the Klipsches serve up sound with more gusto and still have enough refinement to put a smile on a skeptical audiophile's face.

Correct but I am invested into their line quite a bit. I don't have access to $7k-$10k disposable income to blow on speakers so I need to keep certain pieces and upgrade a little at a time. Also, the rears I have are mounted in the ceiling because of space requirements so those aren't coming out either.

I enjoyed reading your review. I am glad to see that Klipsch is receiving respect on these speakers, in particular the updated horns. I too would love to see a comparison with the RF-7ii. Based on your review, I suspect the overall sound character and timbre would be similar.

In regards to the RF-7ii - I have an RF 7ii system with Klipsch THX ultra2 for the surrounds that I use in a dedicated home theater. I have had this for about 6 months now. I use a 200W x7 amplifier by Lexicon. I listen to 90% movies, 10% music. I have not had a problem with ear fatigue to the horns with this system, maybe because of a good clean amp. Also I have the speakers behind the screen which does probably cut the highest treble down a bit. In fact, I purposely tweaked / boosted the sound in the higher frequencies due to same. I will say that after watching a movie like Gravity (i.e. the heartbeat subfrequency sounds in the beginning), I have developed some listening fatigue to the subwoofer bass (I have 2 subs) and have had to dial it back during the movie, but I suspect this is due to a bass peak due from a room mode (which I am planning to treat) or maybe because it has a separate amplifier which is not as clean as the Lexicon amp.

Before I purchased these speakers, I listened critically to numerous speakers, many of which were more expensive than the Klipsch, and I chose the RF-7ii for its sound quality and clarity across the spectrum and for its performance to value ratio. Also, as a side note, after watching movie demos in a showroom, I preferred the dialog from the center channel of the RF7-ii series (the RC-64 II Center Speaker- horizontally mounted behind the screen) over a 3rd vertically standing RF7-ii behind the screen.

Keep up the good writing.

Great Review I have the Klipsch RP 280Fs (left right) and the Klipsch RP 450C (center) and love them so far!! I have had these speakers for about 2 months now and im still impressed with how great they sound. It took a little while to get them to sound just right diving through the settings on my reciever but wow it was all worth it. Looking forward to getting the Klipsch RP 260F and 250S shortly to finish my system.

Awesome review. I see your TV is almost 80 pounds. I have a 62lb LED TV, and was considering putting the TV on the RP-450C (just ordered the same home theater and am anxiously waiting). I'm probably good to go consider how massive the center speaker is, but are there any issues with placing a TV of that weight permanently on the center speaker?

I'm about to power my reference premiere speakers (RP-280F) with a Marantz SR5010 amplifier. Will this amplifier, rated at 100 watts @ 8 ohms, cause any issues with this speaker that wants 150 watts? I'm reading conflicting statements about this. One side saying these are compatible with a wide range of amplifiers and don't require much power, others point out that you could run into clipping issues. If I would imagine that at 100 watts per channel, my living room would be crazy loud enough without getting near maximum. Obviously you all don't know my living room, but what are your thoughts? Do I really need another amplifier?

It doesn't want/need 150W, it is just capable of handling a continuous 150W.

So in other words i'm stressing over nothing? I've never had good speakers of this quality before so I want to take care of them. I originally bought the receiver because it's advertised at 140 watts per channel, but at 6 ohms, I see these speakers operate at 8 ohms with 150 RMS.

So i'm good to go and it'll sound great?

In short, yeah.. absolutely.

Klipsch makes their speakers with extremely high efficiency.. low-mid end receivers have zero issues with pushing most of their speakers to high dB's without struggling. With the 5010, you'll be more than fine. You're not in a church hall anyway XD

Ya you're good. Also, the Klipsch speakers are probably closer to 6 ohms even though they say they are 8 ohms.

wow ok, thanks for putting me at ease as I was starting to stress out about my purchase. Don't really have money for a better amplifier and I figured it would be powerful enough, but now I know that I WILL be good enough to sound great. I can't wait to get this all set up.

Excellent review and great comments.

I just ordered a pair of the RP-280FA speakers and the RP-450CA center.

Please post your thoughts on the Klipsch Atmos units. Either built in or the modules. Mine will be here in about a week and it would be great to see what you thought.

Anyone else that's heard the Atmos form Klipsch? Any setup tips for the towers would be great. Crossovers and such. I will be using a Denon 2200.

I look forward to it.

Thanks

My Klipsch Atmos RP-140SA speakers came, but my RP-280fs wont' be delivered until Wednesday. I will likely get to setting this all up on Saturday, but I will report my Atmos experience here when I can. Can't wait.

I set up the RP-280FAs last night. No Atmos yet, but man those speakers are gorgeous in real wood veneer, and the sound quality is as good as the RP-280F (it had better be, right?)
— which is to say very excellent.

Anybody foresee any issues with me resting my 62lb 65" TV on my RP-450C center speaker? The speaker is massive and i'd think it would handle it just fine. I know in this review I believe an even heaver TV sat on his center channel. Thoughts?

I am eager to hear your review as I purchased my RP-280F before the Atmos speakers were out and honestly am not sure the price tag is worth it for the integrated Atmos so might be willing to try the add-ons. Also what are your room dimensions?

It's also the real wood veneer; the RP-280FA has a better finish than the RP-280F and the RP-280FA—which is a bit larger—has an esthetic appeal that modules stuck on top of the RP-280Fs does not.

Thats exactly how I felt. Although the integrated Atmos would probably sound great and looks great, I really do not think it could possibly be worth the cost unless you had an abundance of money to throw away. I'll definitely let you know how the add-on Klipsch speaker sounds and looks. As for my living room dimensions, i'll have to get back to you. i'm terrible with remembering that stuff.
