I was wondering if I could use a klipsch rs 3II as a center channel? I have klipsch rf 3II in the front and klipsch rs 3II in the back. I also have the matching klipsch 12" powered sub. I dont have the money for the matching center channel so I was wandering if I could use one of the extra rs 3II I have as a center channel until I can get the matching center channel?

First off,... Welcome to the Shack.

Definitely, in fact it should work much better having all speakers the same.

Oooh,..just noticed that you said RS-3 II not RF-3 II,.... well the RS will work but it will not be near as good as having an RF-3 II as the center. But you most likely would not be able to use another RF-3 II as a center. I'd still go ahead and try the RS- 3 II as a center, at least until you can get another RF-3 II or an RC-3 II

I appreciate the help. Just seems like a good temporary fix until I get the matching center.

And if it sounds terrible, you could always use a phantom center until you get the RC-3 II.

The RS 3ii is a dipole right? I wouldn't use that for a center. I mean, it would be an interesting experiment, but I'd wager it's going to sound weird.

3 identical speakers across the front is definitely a good thing, I'd save up for that. Keep looking around Audiogon and ebay. With some patience, you can find some amazing deals.

Gooday Mr f .:T. With my setup for the centre i use Klipsch rf 35 . FL and FR rf 35 add surrounds rs35 which are dipole . It is so dam good most of the time I don't have to use my sub woofer .
Here is another idea .adjust your amp for NO centre channel as the imaging of the L and R Klipsch speakers should be so good they will image a centre . I have tried it and it works . Kind regards ,Alan .:rolleyes:

I definitely wouldn't use it. That speaker is WDST, wide dispersion surround technology. It "spits" sound at 180 degrees. You want a center that doesn't do that. It wouldn't sound right at all......
