  1. I believe that with the LFE input it relies on your receiver for the crossover point. If you have an older receiver or amp that doesn't have a LFE output or its own built-in sub crossover then the regular line-in would be the way to go. Does your sub's manual have any recommendation for hookup?
  2. There's a digital input on your sub?? [:^)]
  3. Well, the average speaker is marked up around 100% of dealer cost. So a speaker that retails at $750 costs the dealer about $375. If they sell it for $550 they're still making $175. You'd be saving about 27% off retail, which isn't too huge of a discount to make you worried if its legit. Sometimes the product on eBay is new-in-box that a dealer has just had laying around for a long time. Better to sell it at a discount than have it taking up room in the warehouse. I work in sales and from time to time I have told fellow salespeople "Better to make something than make nothing."
  4. Well, guess I can now change the "not mine" to MINE! Picked them up a week ago. Corners were a little banged up but that's ok I'm never going to sell them and they sound incredible! BTW, took just a wee bit of convincing my wife! []
  5. As long as its from someone with a decent feedback rating I don't see how you could do wrong. Except for the fact that the speaker probably won't be under warranty.
  6. What CD player do you recommend in the $100-200 range? Can be an older model, single disc, multiple disc, etc. I just need something inexpensive that will sound great on my RF-7s. My current audio source is a $40 Magnavox DVD player that I got for free. [:$] I use a 10 year old Sony 200 disc changer as a CD storage unit since the audio on the Magnavox unit is much better than the Sony. I went to Ultimate Electronics and the guy there recommended Denon. Any other brands? My receiver is a vintage HK 730 so digital outputs and SACD won't apply. Thanks!! (EDIT) The reason why I want a new player is that the Magnavox is very bright, especially with sibilant sounds. I need something much warmer. Right now I have the treble turned way down most of the time I listen to music loud.
  7. Got speaker in 17 guesses. Pretty cool!
  8. How about $450 shipped? These are in perfect condition! They'll be on eBay if no takers here... Here's a couple eBay auctions that went for $530 shipped and $500+ shipped: http://cgi.ebay.com/NIB-Klipsch-Black-RF-25-Floorstanding-Loudspeakers_W0QQitemZ5847772461QQcategoryZ61378QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem http://cgi.ebay.com/klipsch-rf-25-speakers-in-excellent-condition_W0QQitemZ5847499270QQcategoryZ61378QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Great deal here, guys!

  10. Thanks everyone. The DeOxit I got is in a small tube that looks like its for more precision applications. I shouldn't have too much runoff to clean up. So I pretty much want to use it on the knobs such as volume, balance, etc? Take the knobs off and then apply the DeOxit to the 'post' that's sticking out? How far into the receiver do I want to apply it? Is there anything I need to do under the hood, so to speak? Should I be using the DeOxit on anything inside the receiver?
  11. Done and done! Went to Sears tonight after work and bought a 20 in 1 Craftsman getup. Got the woofer out...loose wire! Hooked it back up and buttoned her back up. WE'RE ROCKIN IN MINNESOTA NOW BABY! Thank you everyone for your help! [<)]
  12. Thanks for everyone's help. The guy I bought them from said he is positive they were working 100% when I picked them up. I'll have to track down a torx screwdriver and let you know what I found.
  13. I'm ready to DeOxit my vintage HK 730. Some of the knobs are a little scratchy. What's all entailed in doing this? I want to know some tips before I open up the receiver. Thanks!
  14. Do you unscrew the 'torqx' or 'whatever they're called' screws that are around the woofer?
  15. $475 including shipping. Black in color, mint condition with original boxes, manuals, spikes, feet, etc. Only 6 months old. Selling because I upgraded to RF-7s. Email me wuzzzer2001@yahoo.com Thanks!
  16. On Saturday I picked up the RF-7s that I had originally posted that I had found on craigslist. Listened to them at the guy's house. Wow! I got them home and hooked them up to my HK 730. Listened to the music for a while, then I decided to put my ear by each speaker...something I should have done at the guy's house before I brought them home. Well turns out the upper woofer on one of the speakers is not working at all. It isn't distorting or buzzing or anything, it simply isn't putting any sound out. I just emailed the guy that I bought the speakers from. I'm not sure if he's going to do anything about it. I know, I know, I feel really stupid. He just cranked them up at his place and they sounded soooo good that I didn't even think of checking each driver to make sure they work. Is there anything I should check to see if its loose? Am I going to need to buy a replacement woofer? How much do they cost? He said he'd only had them for a year. If they are still under warranty, how do I go about getting it fixed? Thanks. My elation at getting the speakers has fizzled a bit.
  17. Anyone here have any experience running RF-7s with a vintage H/K 730 or any of the x30 receivers?
  18. Um, Amy Unger (resident Klipsch employee and forum moderator) posted pictures of these a few weeks ago. I think we can trust what she says. [] Here's a link: http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/652629/ShowPost.aspx
  19. I'm thinking the three 8 inchers probably won't have the same 2.8ohm impedance dip as the RF-7 does?
  20. How long does the typical person have their speakers before they are upgrading? Well, in my case, its about 6 months. [<)] I bought my RF-25s in June and now am replacing them this weekend. Not going to say what I'm getting (yet) but I will say this...I won't ever feel the need to upgrade my speakers again! [:#]
  21. http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ele/121841750.html Casually mentioned these to the wife. She responded with a stern "NO!" Dangit. I hope someone else snags em'!
  22. I think if you find something that works well with Klipsch, let people know! As we all know, Klipsch are very finicky as to what amplification really makes them sound good.
  23. Racking my brain comes up with RGB to be selected if you're hooking up a computer, and YCbCr if you're hooking up a DVD player/HDTV/DVR/etc.
  24. One Monday morning a mailman is walking the neighborhood on his usual route. As he approaches one of the homes he noticed that both cars were in the driveway. His walk was cut short by Bob, the homeowner, coming out with a load of empty beer and liquor bottles. "Wow Bob, looks like you guys had one hell of a party last night." the mailman comments. Bob, in obvious pain replies, "Actually we had it Saturday night. This is the first I have felt like moving since 4:00 Sunday morning. We had about fifteen couples from around the neighborhood over for Christmas Cheer and it got a bit wild. Hell, we got so drunk around midnight that we played who am I." The mailman thinks a moment and says, "How do you play that?" "Well, all the guys go in the bedroom and we come out one at a time with a sheet covering us and only our privates showing through a hole in the sheet. Then the women try to guess who it is." The mailman laughs and says, "Damn, I'm sorry I missed that." "Probably a good thing you did," Bob responds. "Your name came up four or five times."
