  1. @HenrikTJ, truly appreciate you taking time to compare and report the test results of your both speakers! It's definitely helpful, but made my decision bit more complicated. :-) Your suggestion about the AVR (Denon 3400H) tweaking is very good. Will do some more experiments with it too. #Ceptorman and #willland, I called up Klipsch Cust Support (always on long hold, for 40 min this time around, but get the great service in the end) this morning. The Tech absolutely recommended RP-404C over either RP-500C or RP-600C. He said that the outer two subwoofers handle < 500hz frequencies and the inner 2 subwoofers handle between 500hz and 1500hz. The twitter handles anything above 1500hz, so rp-404C is a 3-way speaker in comparison and it will sound better than those 2-way center channels. @#Ceptorman, I asked the tech about why RP-8000F web page on Klipsch site recommends RP-404C as the center channel, and not bigger RP-504C. He said that it must be an error on the web page. I also note that not all Klipsch site web pages are updated (e.g. they still have "Tweeter & Woofer Removal" PDFs for old RP line of speakers, and not for newer line of speakers). My thoughts at this point: Since the upgrade cost is affordable, the form factor of RP-404C is smaller (height) which will fit better with the larger size TV upgrade in the future and hopefully it will sound equal, if not better, to my ears in my room, I am considering to move forward with the upgrade. Thanks.
  2. For $100 extra, I have an option to exchange RP-500M with RP-404C. I may not be able to have both speakers at the same time in home to test. I am trying to understand how well RP-404C will match with RP-8000F in comparison to RP-500M. Or, the difference is going to be negligible/subtle? Any thoughts?
  3. Hello, My first post on Klipsch forum. I recently purchased Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-8000F main speakers. I also purchased RP-500C center channel speaker to go with it (as well as a pair of RP-500M, RP-402S surrounds). My center channel speaker sounds ok in HT setup. Question: Given my set of Klipsch speakers and an option to upgrade to RP-404C center channel speaker, do you see any benefits (in terms of sound quality, mid range dialogues, ETC.) of upgrading to RP-404C over RP-500C? I am aware that there are better Klipsch center channel speakers like RP-504C or RP-600C that will go with RF-8000F, however, either they are over my budget or have incompatible form factor (weight, size). So, the comparison boils down to RP-500C and RP404C center channels for me. Would it be better to upgrade to RP404C? I would appreciate the guidance.
