i am in the process of upgrading by center speaker and fron speakers.

 

i am considering for the fronts the klipsch rs 52ii and for the center rc 52ii

 

the other option i am considering for the center the klipsch rc 62ii

 

which is the most likely best option of the two above?

 

 

my system is driven by an onkyo tx-sr876

 

i am running klipsch s2 as surround speakers and bose 201 rears

For fronts do you mean RF52 towers?

Anyway, I would do the 62 center. If you can swing 62's for both towers and center even better.


Call mike at a science before you purchase though. You may be able to go bigger on your original budget than you expected. He is avsales5 on here

I would not do that as you would want direct radiating fronts. You don't want fronts diffused.

I was thinking of using surrounds for fronts....RS 52ll
That is a horrible idea and will result in bad sound. Get the RB51ii's for the front and use surround specific speakers for surrounds only

not to mention the RS cost quite a bit more than the RB anyway.

Thank you....i am novice.


My system used primarily for movies
Then get Klipsch rb-51ii for front left and right speakers and a RC-52ii for center channel...


Do you have a subwoofer? If so what model number is your subwoofer?

I would try and go bigger if you can. The 5.25' drivers are ok, but you will get more out of some bigger drivers for main stage.
