Trying to haggle the price down and ran out of business hours. If tax season wasn't right around the corner I probably would have already pulled the trigger. I hate tax season!

5 years ago I went through the speaker buying decision process.
Starpower (local store) ran a two for one weekend sale on the RF-83's and it made the decision a no brainer.
I went with the RS-42's and have been well satisfied (plus they fit between the top of doorways and the ceiling which is a requirement).
Sometimes I think about replacing the RC-62 but the last time I checked the RC-64 is still a behemoth.
If you use the sound system a lot and have the coin I think the RF-7's will add "weight and presence " to the sound stage that the lower models cannot achieve.
Maybe I should look into the RC-64 again. The Reference lineup has changed twice in 5 years.
No telling what may happen next.

Well I pulled the trigger on the rf-7 II's so my front stage will all match. Maybe down the road I'll get bigger surrounds but I really am happy with the rs-42's. I think I'm done for awhile.

Re: Official Klipsch Owners Thread

I started building a budget home theater a couple years ago. I currently have a Pioneer Elite VSX-42 receiver, a stereo pair of Klipsch Synergy F-10 floorstanders, and third F-10 for the center channel. I have two Optimus Pro LX7 bookshelfs for surrounds I got for free. Then have a 15" Low Rider sub I built on lows (it was a PA sub I built that I never used) with the Dayton SA1000 subwoofer amplifier. It is decent as it drops to 32Hz -3dB, but the Low Rider 15" woofer doesn't have great dynamics. It gets loud enough to match up with the speakers though.

I plan to upgrade the sub and rears at some point. But, it sounds pretty good with the room correction and delay software in the Elite receiver! For the $115 new each Klipsch cost, it is an awesome value of a system! I heard so many speakers. At this price point for new speakers, I couldn't find anything better sounding IMO than the Synergy speakers. Our house is so reverberant that I plan to design some nice acoustic panels first.

Cool reading about y'alls systems!!!

David

Very clean looking setup Hoovie. Is that a tower I see behind the display? Have you ever thought of somehow putting that in the front? Maybe get a small riser for the TV if the tower would obstruct your view. Just a thought…

Woo Hoo! I've got me a tracking # and the new speakers will be here next Wednesday. It shows 1 piece at a weight of 240 pounds which is odd. The weight of each speaker is listed at 87 pounds so by my calculations there's an additional 66 pounds of unaccounted weight? Maybe they accidentally shipped me some Palladiums? Nah…

Nice JBRAX. I sent you a PM about the RC............ You're probably hoping to get more than I want to spend but figured I'd ask.
