So currently I have an entirely Klipsch system: RF-62 fronts, RS-42 surrounds, RW-12d sub and a Synergy C-1 center. I'm wanting to upgrade my center because the C-1 just can't hang with the power and volume of the 62's.


I've been set on upgrading to the RC-52II but now I am wondering if i should get the Def Tech CS8040HD because I'm loving the idea of having a passive radiator for some nice low end. BUT there are several things holding back my decision.


Firstly, I'm concerned that I'll have a similar problem in the 8040 as far as power considering it has 2 4 1/2 woofers, whereas the RC52 has 5 1/2 woofers.


Also, I like the idea of having a matching system (one thing that has been bugging me about the C-1 is that it has a different color scheme and doesn't blend too well with the gold of the reference speakers). However performance is second to this.


It'll cost me about $75 more to get the 8040 so that's the main dilemma. It seems that considering my system is entirely Klipsch I should just get the RC52 but I'm looking for some input! So please, any info is much appreciated!

Keep in the same speaker line so you timbre match.


The Klipsch RC-62 Center Channel Speaker would be the best but the RC52 will do the trick for you as well

Yeah the more I think about the more I think that's the best way to go. So the 8040 just won't blend well? I can imagine the horn tweeter vs the dome tweeter would throw the sound off balance.

It could possibly blend well but I know for sure the RC62 or RC52 will easily blend. Your ears may not hear a difference but its not worth the rish


And if you are running a 80hz crossover the sub will take care of the bass

Klipsch and Definitive

They throw a different sound pattern - most important you want

your front speakers to voice (timbre) match. You do not want to

mess with the front stage - you want the sound plane to be even

from left to right and right to left. You want the dimensional stage

to balance.
