Klipsch RF-82 Speaker review/excursion video

Postby martianpc » Fri Jan 26, 2007 11:05 am

Ok, so I recently got the Klipsch RF-82 speakers, and they are in one word... Amazing. They have such extreme clarity regardless of the volume level they are being played at. they have great bass response, they arnt boomy persay but they can be accurate down to the lower ranges although i do recommend using a subwoofer with decent output as well. I personally accompany them with a Klipsch RW-12d and that seems to really be a nice combination. I have made a video that shows their excursion capabilities in a controlled fashion. http://youtube.com/watch?v=NDrXYjWjC0s

I've got half a dozen different woofers in my closet that will behave that way with low frequency sine.

Those are nice. What are you powering them with?

And when you seek forgiveness
You will see there is no god
And for all eternity
You will cry my name

But you can feel it...right sn00kumz?

My Klipsch Forte II's have 15" passive radiators that can wang on some low frequency notes...too bad the rest of the speaker is annoying me enough to make me sell them :(

powered off a Denon AVR-3805 may try bi-amping since the receiver can do it.

Hey, if a speaker doesn't float your boat there is no sense trying to like them.
Klipsch can be or are rough sounding (refering to Heritage models)........too many speakers in the world to be married to one brand, and high efficiency as well.

I have too much into my Cornwalls to get back what I would want, so I'm stuck.
But they have good tonal balance, it's just a little rough.

but I got used to listening to them, they have huge open sound. And listening to other smaller speakers and bookshelf types they seem all small sounding and compressed.

I had Chorus II's, they always seemed to have a hot top-end to me. Even with tubes.

I'm thinking about trying a pair of Terry Cain-designed BIB's using the flagship Fostex drivers...something about a 6.5" driver in a six foot tall horn seems oddly appealing to me, much like using 40lb. monoblocks I guess :D

Bummer Terry Cain passed away......

I was eventually wanting to run down to Walla-Walla to check the place out, I'm only around 150 miles away. He even had some amplifiers from Josh Stippich there.

Dunno if the place still exists since Terry is gone.
