I run 82iis for home theater, and cerwin vega v10f in my room for 2 channel. Have not heard xls215 but they look like they will be awesome. You should listen to both if you can because they will sound different.Go klipsch if its for theater. Sounds great with music also

Thanks for the reply.The cerwin vega tend to need a lot of power to drive them well and some have said the highs and mids just aren't there.I have a buddy with the klipsch and they really sound good.His were the first ones not the second model.They were very loud and clean sounding.Im older and listen to classic rock.Cant stand that rap ****.I don't feel its music at all""They degrade women and im not a fan of that.I hope it dies like dicso did""I had a chance to get the 82 for 499 each from crutchfield but I was to late in buying them.The ywere some error ones with the wrong veneer color.I could kick myself for that dumbass move""Thanks for the help""""

You stuck on cherry? They were just in stock at crutchfield last week.


I know for a fact that avs can smash that price though as I just bought 82's last week.

If you live in the continental us call avs. I forgot about that since I live in Hawaii and shipping kills any savings.

For a grand I would seek out a pair of older klf-30 or rf7 used on craigslist or similar.


I'd probably take the xls-215 over the rf82. I'm not the biggest fan of Klipsch's newer offerings.
