I had an F3/S3/C3 5.1 setup for a number of years that I was very happy with. I really think you’ll be very pleased with them.

If anyone has experience with them, would RF-7 III's be any better than RP-8000's for strictly HT use?

I went from RF82II's to RF7II's. I really only noticed on 2 channel music (which was great!), the big difference was the RC64II.

Thats why I went with the 8000P's and big center this time (504C). Center channel is real important to the workload.

I have the rp502s and I'm currently debating on if I should use them as surround or go back to my 600m bookshelves. They are truly a nice set of speakers but they are also unique im still debating on how they should be oriented.

600m looks overkill, im thinking 400m for rear surrounds

Pure curiosity here. What would today's equivalent(Klipsch's newest line) be to my RF-62II mains and RC-62II center, and would the newer line sound any better?

Thank you. Would the matching center be the RP-600C?

I used to have RF82II's until moving to another brand. So now that I am coming back I went with the 8000F and 504C.

I think they sound better, at least the first RP series, as I have had the Reference II and I have the first RP series now. The biggest difference is the horn/tweeter. The RP series is less bright. Without Audyssey, I found the Reference II to be fatiguing, but they sounded excellent with Audyssey Reference. My understanding is the very newest series bring more improvements to the tweeter, don't know how audible the improvements are as I haven't heard them.

The newer line would sound better for music, I would think.

Thanks. I love my Reference II's. Not bright to me at all, probably because I have upper registry hearing loss(years around loud aircraft in the Navy) I need clear(bright) treble for clarity. I never fatigue listening to them. I was just curious on if the newer line would be better. If the treble is toned down, I would be concerned about losing the high end clarity. Thank you for answer my question, I appreciate it.

Hello All

After a long hiatus, I'm upgrading my TV room's AV system. A Yamaha 2070 is currently powering everything but I hope to help it out with an external amp sometime this year. I am happy with my RF63s and RC64 but my surrounds (4 Synergy S-2s) are weak.

Question time,
Should I upgrade the amp first and see how the current setup sounds or upgrade the surrounds first?
If I should upgrade speakers should I go toward RS-62's or RP-502's / RP-250's or something else that compliments the rest?

I really enjoy the information that I receive while perusing the site.

A: 7.2.2 Yamaha 2070, Klipsch RF-63, RC-64, 4 RB-61, RP-500SA, R-115, RW-12D, RT10D
V: Sony XBR85X900F, Xbox One X

Are RP-160M's too large for side surrounds? An eBay vendor offered to upgrade me to 160's after the RP-150M's arrived damaged.

I have 7.1 now as RP450C, RP-250F's, and four R-51M's as side and rear surrounds. Was planning to keep everything at 5" woofers, and upgrade the R's to RP's for uniformity of sound... If that was even a reasonable assumption. Not sure if the 6.5" woofers will subjectively change the listening experience?

Room is 16x16x18' open loft, but side and rear speakers are only 3.5' from LP/sofa.

I'm currently demoing the 502s and love it, I'm just not sure on positioning with them. They sound amazing however and maybe better to use than my rp600m for surrounds. I am loving the newer design more than the older rp series, but if price is a bother to you then get the 250s. I've heard of the tweeter being less harsh and I can say it's gotta be true. My reference premieres are not fatiguing at all and I have sensitive ears.

Question here, i've been told the reference line at best buy isn't great. but the new reference premiere is good? would the RP serve as a good upgrade over infinity primus?

Any difference will be trivial, don't worry about it.

I think it's all about personal preference and budget. I was drawn to Klipsch Reference this year because at BB they had a demo wall where you could compare Polk and Klipsch Reference side by side, and Klipsch was a clear winner and I liked their sound. Then I visited a show room with RP demo'ing a Star Wars video game clip and I was blown away. When Black Friday sales came around and outgoing RP models were less than previous Reference prices, it made the decision easy. However, I believe if I had never heard the RP demo, I would have been completely satisfied with the Reference line.

I heard the reference 28's at best buy and i wasn't sure if i liked them at the time cause I'm not an audiophile and don't know what they are supposed to sound like. But i did notice the highs were very piercing and changed dramatically if i move my head slightly. But that coyld have been cause of the accoustics in the store. Then i went to 2001 Audio Video to listen to the rp-280f. They had then in an HT room with subwoofer, center speaker and surrounds. The guy played on of the Mad Max movies and i was blown away. It sounded like a real theater. But i knew it was cause of all the other speakers. So i asked him to turn off the sub and it still sounded great. I should have asked him to set the avr to 2 channel mode but i didnt. So i bought the rp280f and i love them. They sound awesome and the highs arre not piercing, they are just right. Then i bought the SVS pb-2000 sub and my wife and i watched Fantastic Beasts. It sounded great. During the loud parts, it was almost as loud as a theater. If i would have raised the volume a bit more it would have been as loud. Yesterday my klipsch rp-450c center speaker got delivered, but I haven't really tested it much yet. But I'm glad i bought the rp-280f speakers. They are well worth it.

Prices have been hovering near those since, but were higher before. New Reference are close enough to these prices I'd def get outgoing RP.

I have a question for the Klipsch Community here. Would you guys buy a store display of rf7ii's at $300 each? The display models have cosmetic damage on the woofers by customers poking at them but claim they are in perfect working order.

Would Klipsch replace these under warranty?

I heard the reference 28's at best buy and i wasn't sure if i liked them at the time cause I'm not an audiophile and don't know what they are supposed to sound like. But i did notice the highs were very piercing and changed dramatically if i move my head slightly. But that coyld have been cause of the accoustics in the store. Then i went to 2001 Audio Video to listen to the rp-280f. They had then in an HT room with subwoofer, center speaker and surrounds. The guy played on of the Mad Max movies and i was blown away. It sounded like a real theater. But i knew it was cause of all the other speakers. So i asked him to turn off the sub and it still sounded great. I should have asked him to set the avr to 2 channel mode but i didnt. So i bought the rp280f and i love them. They sound awesome and the highs arre not piercing, they are just right. Then i bought the SVS pb-2000 sub and my wife and i watched Fantastic Beasts. It sounded great. During the loud parts, it was almost as loud as a theater. If i would have raised the volume a bit more it would have been as loud. Yesterday my klipsch rp-450c center speaker got delivered, but I haven't really tested it much yet. But I'm glad i bought the rp-280f speakers. They are well worth it.
I’m basically looking at same setup, at least for the front but with the RP260F and the RP450C. I already have a PB2000 sub.

What did you do for your rears? I have towers now but they are mostly hidden behind stuff so I’ll probably go bookshelf speakers this time.

RP-450C $415 Amazon vendor

Prices have been hovering near those since, but were higher before. New Reference are close enough to these prices I'd def get outgoing RP.
Thanks. Seems the 450C is around that price point up to $440 new. As I mentioned above, was looking at the 260 instead of 250 but if I could find them for $300 or so each that’s be great. But again, that’s basically the setup I’m thinking about going for; sounds like you enjoy it.

Would Klipsch replace these under warranty?

I would get them, and if someone else reading this knows where you are they are likely already gone. Who cares about cosmetics, get them. Klipsch would not warranty an item purchased with damaged parts, no company would.
Did I mention you should get them...

I did R51M's for sides and rears because I got them for $125/pair at BB on Black Friday sale and figured for surround effects they'd be fine. However, 1) over time the cleaner looks of the outgoing RP line have grown more appealing to me than the busier Reference style, and 2) I do feel there is a slight pitch/tonal difference in the sound. So I am looking to upgrade the sides to RP-150Ms. Can't do rears because the 150M's are too tall for my configuration.
I also have a PC2000 so we are looking at a similar setup.
In general with Klipsch RP front/center and nonRP sides/rears, I've found movies to be great, gaming pretty good but I'm concerned the speakers are a little too directional resulting in gaps in the 360 degree sound stage (but this may be room and settings specific), and streaming music on Fronts and sub, using Tidal/FLAC and other sources to be unimpressive. Regarding music, I am not a audiophile whatsoever, so take it with a grain of salt. In an AB comparison, The RP are noticably more bright and crisp than my older, less expensive Onkyo 5" woofers speakers, which sounded a little muddy and quieter at same volume. But I'm not experiencing dazzling clarity and distinction in muzzle instruments, etc. By far not the best music playback I've ever heard. Should be noted, my room set up is a horrible biggish loft apartment with thin walls, lots of flat surfaces, and lots of street noise. So I'm not passing final judgment on any of this until I move in a year or so.

AVR: Denon X4400H 7.1.4; 80% gaming, 20% movies, <1% music
Speakers: Klipsch RP-450C; L/R Klipsch RP-250F; Side & Rear: Klipsch R-51M; Height: JBL 2.5" satellites; SVS PC-4000;
Platform: Xbox One X on LG E8 55" OLED
Room from hell: 16x16x18' open loft, thin walls, hard surfaces, lots of street noise
