Hello everyone!

I was wondering if I could get some advice? I've been considering a pair of the RF-62 II for mains & the RC-62 II for center. The room is quite large (22w X 25d X 10h) & open to hallways & bedrooms. I had to go with in-ceiling surrounds (HTD HD-R65AIM, 89db) due to my room layout. Is it a necessity to change out these ceiling speakers to match up with the Klipsch, since they're rated much higher in sensitivity? Is Audyssey going to kill the Klipsh's dynamics to match the HTD surrounds?

hi all,:wave: i am NO PROFESSIONAL. :duh::duh:It is just my opinion...1) i am gonna assume that where the ceiling speakers are installed should be considered the "last row" of seating where you or your guess will sit. 2) in regards to (1) you need to create and "envelope" of sound. and have a MLP=main listening position. This is where you sit majority of the time.:TT:hide: 3) do your AVR have room correction? if so use it. See if you like the results. search this forum http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/audio-processing/68407-audyssey-multeq-faq-setup-guide.html the results should blend the speakers nicely.:party: 4) remember that your not trying to fill the room. Not unless you are.:heehee::dancebanana: it is the listening area that you want to have the best sound..:fireworks2::fireworks3::fireworks1:... and after you do all and not liking it. Then maybe consider changing the ceiling speakers. but try and and try again, have fun

You may want to look into the Rc-64;). My room is smaller then yours but very open and I really like the larger speaker compared to smaller centers I have had in the past:).

I'm going with a third RF62 for my center so that all three are identical. I'm hoping it will give me the best sound field.
Good choice! Voice matching will indeed provide the best overall surround performance. I have all Klipsch Heritage speakers and the surround field is impressive.

However, as we know, placement in the room makes a lot of difference. So, placing it in the center will always make it sound different from placement in a corner.

Submitting my RF 82 II towers and SW450.

I love their efficiency but I can't help but think it dampens the dynamic range at lower volumes. A lot of people seem to think these speakers were made for rock or techno, but I prefer listening to softer, uncompressed music at moderate sound levels. Those speakers seem to have a sweet spot in that way. Of course, I was like :blink: when I finally came across the frequency response "curve", but I love them nonetheless.

Recently Unearthed...

http://www.klipsch.com/auction-5-22



Recently Unearthed :eek:lddude:


In the 1990’s we began putting aside examples of most Klipsch models for “archival purposes” - somewhat of a Noah’s Ark. For years the product was contained in trailers outside the Hope facility. Today most of them are in the distribution center at Hope. It is no longer practical to keep this time capsule, so we are offering them to Klipsch employees both in Indy and in Hope. This is a unique opportunity to purchase “classic” products in new condition at a fraction of the 1990’s dealer cost. And the proceeds will go directly to Make-A-Wish.

After as much as 20 years in storage these products have held up remarkably well.* All products have been removed from the packaging, visually inspected, sweep tested, and re-packed. If there is damage, it is noted. Note that many of these products are in “raw” finish, meaning that the veneer is sanded and ready for the finish of your choice. In Indy you can see this “raw” condition in the Terrace Lobby.

The auction spreadsheet lists one “lot” on each line. In some cases it is one speaker, two speakers, a pair, or a “set”. Please bid by lot #. Because it is not practical to have this auction where the goods can be viewed in person, the spreadsheet also includes original pricelists and brochures for your reference. The minimum bid is set at 1/4 of the original dealer cost. This will clearly be your last chance to purchase these vintage products in unused condition.

While most of the product is located in Hope, several lots are in Indy, therefore shipping may, or may not, be required. Shipments between Indy and Hope will be made in bulk. If your lot(s) requires shipping, you will be charged 5% of the winning bid.

* Due to the duration of storage several of the woofers’ rubber edges have a white powdery appearance to varying degrees. This is easily removable with a product such as Armorall, and is not considered a defect. Please note that due to age it is possible replacement parts are no longer available.

For a complete list of original prices, click here.

Original product brochures, if available, can be viewed by clicking on the product name.

Hello my name is Jack and I have become a Klipsch addict.
I have recently bought into the sickness with a pair of KLF10's and liked them, had Crites send up a couple new titanium tweeters, loved em, now going with the new crossover and hope to like that as well. Have the C-7 on the way and will surely do the goods there too with some....ahhh....KLF30s on the way too. Does that make me bad ?? :gulp:
