My audio Golden Rule is to never purchase a speaker or major stereo component without first experiencing it first-hand.
I broke that rule for the first time last month, but it turned out well nevertheless.
My previous speakers are B&W DM640s purchased in 1997, and prior to that I purchased B&W 620s in 1994.
As you can see, I don't buy speakers very often...

Thanks for the placement advice. I am experimenting with placement now, and I'm also comparing the RF-7 IIIs with my older B&W speakers as well.
Here are some recent recordings and companion YouTube videos featuring the RF-7 IIIs:

It was nerve wracking, but the RF-7 III has exceeded my expectations in every respect.
congrats on the new speakers, these along with the RC64III will most likely be new additions to my home theater this year.

Part of the cost is made in America with real wood veneer. It also uses more expensive drivers. At the very least, it can play more loudly cleanly, although the RP-280f is certainly no joke in this area. I don't know if it sounds better, I've never heard it, and that's subjective anyway.

Sound perception is subjective in so many ways, so there's nothing exact about it really.

I visited BestBuy on my lunch hour today and listened to the rp280f.

Does the RF-7 III sound better? To my ears, yes it does.

Does the RF-7 III sound $1,000 better-- actually, the rp280f were on sale for $490-- so, is the RF-7 III $1,200 better? No, not to my ears.

I am in need of front 3 channels for HT setup. Purchasing some cheap JBLs for rear and HSU sub. Any good Klipsch recommendations for primarily movie/tv watching? I have always been drawn to them but not sure if they would be good for my situation. I have a basement with about 3000 cu. ft. of space, sitting distance of 12ish feet. Budget of about $800-$1000 for these 3 speakers. Thanks!

I listened to the RP280F's and thought they were dynamic and great for HT. Very wide horizontal dispersion as well as vertical dispersion. They are also on sale at the Klipsch website. The newer RP version is the RP820F

Going on some of the suggestions here I found some very good half price deals on (open box & scratch and dent) Klipsch speaker on eBay from Acoustic Sound Design and Sound Distributors. Both are factory authorized dealers. I ended up getting two RP-280F floor speakers and the RP-450C center. All of them were delivered new in unopened original boxes and under $1000


ebay Update: 15% or up to $100 off Today using code PREGAME15 by 10pm PT.

I just wanted to drop in and say how happy I am with a pair of Forte IIIs that I picked up.


I had a living room system with a Onkyo 707, a Pair of RF82s and a RC35. I always thought it sounded fine, but I don't do much critical listening in this room. When I saw a picture of Forte IIIs in distress oak I thought they would look great and match the decor much better. I figured I was happy with the RF82s so the Forte IIIs would be a improvement.


I ordered a pair without ever hearing them. I also changed out the Onkyo 707 for a Cambridge Audio 551r V2 that I bought for a bargain ($350). The Cambridge is only 90wpc but it uses a toroid transformer. It felt weird dropping the WPC a bit, but I figured the Forte IIIs are efficient so it would probably work ok.


I am totally blown away by the performance of this system. I have another system with beryllium domed Focals for critical listening, but the Forte IIIs hold their own and are even preferable in some ways. The dynamics with 90wpc are amazing. I ditched the RC-35 center channel all together and I am thinking about getting rid of my sealed 10" subs in the living room as well. I love the pure stereo presentation of the Forte IIIs and the bass is subwoofer quality from 40hz+ they really can put some energy into the room.


I chose the Forte III over the RF7s for the mid horn (and aesthetics). I listen to a lot of female vocals and from what I read online the true 3 way would be a good choice. Now I have a Maverick Audio D2 Tube DAC on order to finish my living room stereo setup.


Anyway I just wanted to say hi and encourage everyone to hear the Forte III if they can.

I’m going to overcome the shame and ask: how do you see two R-14s as fronts? Paired with a R-25c center?
As you may guess this would allow to restrict the height of LCR to a mere 17cm.
Or maybe it’s better to just lay R-15m speakers on the side?

Or go up a notch to 25cm height and just use 3 identical R-14m?

Would the TmT in the R-14s have some destructive interaction or just mess up the directionality? (listening positions are two sofas in an L shape anyways..)

I’ve ordered an heavy duty VESA stand to raise the 75” tv but I’m not sure I can get 25cm clearance for 3 standing R-14M speakers..

Took a leap of faith and followed my Audio guru's advice and ordered these..RP-440D SB PASSIVE SOUND BAR,2x RP-140D ON-WALL SPEAKER, R-112SW SUBWOOFER and WA-2 WIRELESS SUBWOOFER KIT. I also have a couple of old JBL ceiling mount speakers for my surround back. This powered by my Denon AVR-E400 7.1. How will it sound? We just remodeled the living room and after many years of floor standing speakers I decided to free up some floor space. I'm ousting an old 5 piece Mirage Bi-Polar set and a Velodyne sub.

So they are absolutely new and unopened at all? does it have the white foam "cloth" inside?

Yes, absolutely brand new and unopened, just the same as a pair of RP-160M's I previously purchased brand new. From what I understand they use the wording "Scratch & Dent" and "Open Box" to get around advertising prices below MSRP to reduce inventory. You can also check the feedback on each eBay site.

Well my friends. Here it is, 125" installed. It's a perfect fit. Wall to wall image, lol. Only problem is it's vinyl and not sound transparent like I ordered. So I'll have to go through some more trouble to get it right. But for now I kept the center speaker below the screen so at least I can watch some movies.

My mystake, that was the name of the eBay store. I had them in my cart around 0900 and then the listing ended and said they were out of stock. I asked them if they ever "bundled" scratch and dent products and they said no. There bundle packages are priced quite high compared to their scratch and dent.

I ended up purchasing a pair of RP-160 bookshelves for rears and the 450C center channel. Will have to pick up the RP-280Fs at a future date. Now that I am starting to piecemeal a system I hope there isnt a big awesome bundle deal like the one out of B&H photo a couple of weeks ago.

Looks good! It's unfortunate you need to go to the extra effort to exchange it for an ATS. I will someday also move to an ATS to gain more screen real estate! I have given some thought to perhaps building a DIY ATS...is this something you may have considered before deciding to buy?

I did not consider DIY. I used mud/stuckle and sanded my walls to prepare for painting and did some painting and installed the light blocking shades. And stained all of my wood panelling myself. But I paid for someone to install the panelling and also paid someone to install my screen and mount my projector. Some things I can do myself but others I leave to proffesionals, lol. But it wasn't too expensive and he's a nice guy and did a great job!

You can always use the RP-160's & 450C up front until you find floor speakers.

Well...I'll answer myself. Got it all hooked up yesterday and I have to say it sounds pretty good. You just have to keep an open mind that it's NOT floor standers. The sub really brings it all together.

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me out... I have a pair of RP-150M bookshelf's & I had removed the wooden plinth from the bottom when I first got them & I'd like to re-attach it but somehow misplaced the screws....Would anyone possibly know what size/length screw I can use?

Thanks so much guys!!!

On the RP-160M's the screws are #8 x 1" flat head. Just keep in mind your screwing into MDF.

Got my r-28f last week.. First time using klipsch speakers.. This is 2.0 setup.. Mind you my main setup is polk signature series.. That being said I love the speakers so far.. but when playing loud and getting close to them the tweeter sounds not so great.. Sounds fine standing back but my polks don't do this.. I'm just using a standard 2 channel reciever no amp.. So I guess I'm wondering if this is normal with horns vs dome which I'm used 2

Those are the entry model line known for their harsh tweeters. Klipsch overall are known for their harshness due to the tweeter design and material but the entry line is fairly noticeable.

If you like it and can listen without fatigue at a certain distance than fine but it is what they are known for. you might possibly be able to do some EQing to tame the treble tho

Well I get the harshness eveyone talks about.. I actually don't mind that.. I don't think I'm talking about that tho cause like I said sounds great standing back.. It's outing your face near the speakers.. Maybe that's just it when you are that close.. I can still return and get he 280 for 100 more.. I just didn't go that rout in the fist place cause they will be close to the wall.. I figured the port in front would been better for my application..

I have the R-26f's in my 5.1 divining room set up and haven't noticed a hardness to them and am lowering them with a Yamaha 483. Now I like Klipsch and my other towers are 20+ year old KPS-400's that still sound great to me. What are you meaning by bad? Klipsch speakers can handle a lot wattage so you could try more power to them. The 280's I would think would sound even better, but they are out of my price range.

Klipsch KPS-400’s FR/FL with built in 15” 300 watt side firing subs, RC-7 Center, RS-3 Surrounds.

Anyone have experience with the new R-34C center channel speaker? Thinking about using with my RP-250F's due the size constraints I have.
