Klipsch RC-62ii vs R-25C
I had been using the Klipsch R-25C for about a year or so (upgraded from Polk CSC1 Series 2) and it fit in very well with my newly purchased JBL Studio-570 floorstanders. However, given that my usage is mostly tv/movies I know that the center speaker is extremely important so I wanted to upgrade it again to one with a bigger woofer. I wanted the Infinity RC-263 but it wouldn't fit so I chose the Klipsch RC-62ii.
My first impression was that there was hardly any discernable difference, which was a huge disappointment. It seemed the highs on the 25C were clearer or something? Less weight to the sound than the RC-62ii, but clearer? Not sure if that's because the horn is a little different or because it's sealed instead of front-ported or because it's trying to do less, I don't know. I've since broken the RC-62ii in a bit more and I'm still on the fence. When I turned off the other speakers and listened solely to the center, the difference was much more noticeable, with sound effects and explosions and really everything all around having more body and feel and sounding better overall. But once blended into the rest of the soundstage it doesn't really seem to make a difference.
Has anyone heard these two speakers? Made any comparisons? Have any advice? Stories?
I am still within my return window for the RC-62ii for a few more days.
My fronts are a pair of JBL Studio 570 Floorstanding speakers. They actually blend rather nicely with the Klipsch line from what I can tell.What fronts are you using?
your old-center is identical to my Klipch icon except mines not copper spun woofers but img .
have you tried and movies or louder listening? I don’t have understand why RC-62ii is worse ...maybe preference

Who's got the best klipsch deals right now?
Just use some foamboard. Cut at desired angle. Cheap and effective. Or rubber feet in front.I have an RP-504C that I’ve purchased recently. Man, this thing is big!
I’d like to angle the speaker up so it’s pointing more towards the seating position. Does anyone have any wife-approved ideas on how to do this? I don’t think she’d like the door stop idea and most of the foam I see is too small for this beast of a speaker.
