  1. Thanks everyone for the replies! Someone beat me to the CF2’s so I’ll keep looking but, I have a much better idea of where my current speakers might compare to the other models. Appreciate it.
  2. @jjptkd @wuzzzer I’m in CA @billybob. I see a pair of CF2’s in fairly good shape for around the same price range. Any opinions or personal experience with those? I see mixed reviews online.
  3. Thanks @wuzzzer. I’ll look for those models. 👍
  4. @jjptkd thanks for the response. Would you suggest a different model? Ideally, I would like to try an older pair. I’ve heard others say the older Klipsch speakers were a little different than the newer ones.
  5. Thanks @billybob for the reply. The woofers, cabinets, and grills appear to be in good shape from what I’ve seen in pics. I’m not sure about the feet. The price will probably be around $300. I was also thinking the titanium tweeters might be a plus that may match more closely with my center. I was also hoping to get more from the mids.
  6. Hi all, I’ve come across a pair of RF-3 II locally in the $300-400 range and I’m curious if these would be a noticeable upgrade compared to my current front left and right speakers (R-28F’s)? For reference, I’d be using them with a RP-450C center channel. Let me know your opinions. Thanks.
  7. Ok, I just got my hands on a replacement tweeter (1011956) that works with this speaker. The three screws that held the old tweeter in place are too short to hold the new tweeter in place. However, I found some screws that I could use and the treble sounds much better now. My first thoughts are that the highs are louder/brighter and more clear than the R-25C. I’m still testing but, am happy so far. I took 2 of the loose foam pieces out since they block the ports but, it does sounds a little boomy/muddy when lots of bass is present. I might put them back in and test again even though they make the ports useless.
  8. Thanks everyone. Just to provide an update, I think the RP-450C sounds pretty good overall with my current front left and right towers and the additional sub. No complaints.
  9. Hi @Zen Traveler thanks for the input. I hear ya. It’s a lot of trial and error. I think this will be 5th center I’ve tried over the years haha.🤦‍♂️
  10. Do you think I’ll hear a strange difference in voices when dialogue moves from the center to left or right mains when watching movies? Not sure if it will sound unnatural since the RP will have a titanium tweeter and the mains have aluminum.
  11. Hey @wuzzzer! thanks for the reply. I mainly watch movies and tv. Not hearing the dialogue clearly always seems to be an issue for me. Therefore, if the RP-450C solves that problem, I’ll be pretty happy. The second sub was a huge improvement even though they don’t match. I’m excited to try the bigger center. I was thinking maybe the RP-280F’s as well (if I upgrade). I’ve heard good things.
  12. Hey everyone, so I’ve gotten the urge to upgrade since I’ve joined the community (probably not a big surprise 😆). I’ve recently picked up a second sub and also ordered a RP-450C (replacing a R-25C). I’m wondering if my tower speakers will pair ok with the new center? I’ll test it out when it arrives but, figured I’d ask in case someone else has been in a similar situation. My current set up is below. Denon AVR-X2300W - receiver R-28F front left and right RP-450C R-120SW & R-10SW - subs Mirage Nanosat - surrounds thanks
  13. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Kirby but, I think it’s awesome that everyone in the Klipsch audio community is honoring him and sharing stories. Thanks for sharing and RIP Kirby.
  14. In case anyone else is interested, I’ve decided to switch out the tweeter once I find the right replacement in stock. I found other similar conversations about this when I searched the forum.
