    Welcome to the Klipsch forums KOA Dog.  :emotion-21:  :emotion-46:  :cool:

     

    You are lucky to have a friend who would sell you RF-7's for $200.  Your buddy just saved you a thousand bucks.

     

    @Youthman directly upstream ^^^ gave you great insight and advice.  He has owned just about every Klipsch higher-end speaker coming and going.

     

    As far as where you can find a good deal on a pre-owned RC-64, you can't, deals are far and few in between.  That is the holy grail of Klipsch center speakers and they don't come onto the market all that often.  When they do they are snapped up quickly, usually for about $600-700, the II versions going for at least $700-900.  They are well known and highly sought after.  That keeps the supply low and the price high.

     

    Youthman said to keep an eye out for the RC-7, I agree.  It's a great sounding center, pairs will with your RF-7's, is less expensive and easier to find than the RC-64.

     

    Where do you live?  We have a lot of guys here who know where to look and are some are unbelievable at finding deals.

    Wow!  I missed the purchase price.  SWEEEEET score bro!  You beat me as I paid $400 for mine with no receiver.  LOL.  That most definitely classifies as a Youthman Deal.

    I forgot to mention.  To sweeten the deal, he threw in an RSW-12 that matched the set!!     I know how insane of a deal I got.  I still smile every time I look at them :)

    Welcome to the forums Kaodog!  Sorry to hear about the lightning strike. 

     

    The matching center for the RF-7 is the RC-7.  Some have used the RC-64 or RC-64 II (they both sound the same) but the RC-7 has a brighter sound signature than the RC-64 and RC-64 II.  I've owned two RC-7's over the years and paid $150 and $200 for them.  They can definitely be found for under $400.  Locating used gear usually requires searching Ebay, Craigslist, Offer Up, Let Go and Facebook Marketplace. 

     

    Just a warning....RC-7's don't tend to ship well due to having heavy magnets that are supported by plastic baskets.  If the speaker is dropped (which is very likely) the magnet can break loose from the plastic basket and wreak havok on the inside components.

     

    I'm not aware of a "Special Edition" RC-64, and Klipsch doesn't have an RC-64 speaker.  Can you clarify?

    Here is a link for a Special Editon RC-64   https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-Special-Reference-Channel-Loudspeaker/dp/B00P8BFFA6

     

    Also an RC-64  https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-Center-Channel-Speaker-American/dp/B0776ZY5ZN/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1516276426&sr=1-6&keywords=klipsch+rc64

     

    Maybe it's just the title in the add to attract attention?

     

     

     

  3. So, about three months ago lightning hit our house and fried every audio and video device in our home (and the coffee pot).  DAMN!!   Insurance money was enough to replace the must have video items; no luck for the amps, receivers,  speakers, etc.   Budget is now very tight with kids. I bought an older set of RF-7's (in mint condition) and a older Sony receiver from a buddy who rarely used them for $200.  A great deal and they are mind blowing.   Bought an Onkyo TX-RZ810 yesterday.    Now for my question. Center and rear choices. I need to match the RF-7's with an center, probably an RC-64.  (1.) Will it matter which version I purchase?   (2.) Where can I get a good deal on a pre-owned RC-64?     My rear speakers must be in wall speakers due to the design of my house.   (3.)  Which Klipsch in wall speaker would match well with the above mentioned front and centers?

     

    Separate question - why can i find the RC-64 special edition for less and other RD-64 speakers?

    Thank you in advance for your advice!!
