Klipsch RF or RC?

I'm finishing up my dedicated theater which will have a DIY AT screen. The speakers will be on the stage behind the screen. I've got a pair of RF-62 II's for the mains and RS-41's for surrounds. I need a center speaker and have the space for a tower. I've found an open box RF-42 for $175 shipped. Or should I bite the bullet and drop the $350 on a new RF-62 from my local dealer? Or should I save $100 and pick up an RC-52?

Any chance your local dealer will let you demo there floor models in home just overnight offer to leave a deposit if you have to.

I could certainly ask but my room isn't ready for speakers to be hooked up yet. I haven't even painted yet. My local dealer also doesn't have the full reference line in stock. But I'll be calling them in the morning. Just looks for selective opinions.

I would add another RF-62 ii if you can accommodate it in your room.

I know I'd love another RF62 but would it be worth twice the cost of the RF42?

I'd bite the bullet. Everyone has different budgets and such but, in the long run I think you'd be happier with three of the same and $350 is not that much for a good center channel.

Re: Klipsch RF or RC?

It's always tough when balancing $$/stuff.
My gear gets used every day. When that is factored in it makes the $$ spent seem like a bargain.
I don't know how much a dedicated HT will actually be used.
If it's used every day I would say get the RF-62 and in a month the $$ won't even matter to you.
If the HT is only going to be used on weekends (maybe not even every weekend) then I might spend the $$ on something else maybe not even related to HT.
