    Purchase recommendation

    Hello to all of my Klipsch brothers and sisters! This is my first post although I have been perusing the site for some time. Before I get to my main Q, let me tell you a little about me so you can understand me a little better: I am a live sound engineer and have a very solid knowledge of audio gear (mostly in the pro sound world) as well as acoustics (but no formal schooling in the matter) and electrical components / mods / repairs / etc.. I am also a prowd owner of Klipsch speakers, buying my first 6x Klipsch KSB1.1's brand new right when they were getting replaced by the SB line, to use for my surround setup (I know they made center/rear speakers using similar components, but I bought all the same model to preserve consistency across all channels since different models have different sizes and driver counts, and because I was getting a great deal on them!), around 2008ish. After eventually adding a subwoofer (Hsu 10" model) and a couple more 1.1's used, and going thru a few different drive systems (from 4 channels of Soundcraftsmen PA5001 w/ a shure analog and technics digital surround processor back in the day to a Marantz 6.1 receiver to a Yamaha aventage RX-A1040 which is what I currently have, with 4x ksb1.1's flown around sides and back, and three in front for L/C/R). I was "that guy" who went into the Bose store years ago and sat in on the "Demo Room" they had set up, then when I came out and they asked me what do I think, I told them I could hear the speakers fatiguing and distorting toward the end! They asked me what I normally listen to, and when I told them what I do and what I have, the "sales guy" admitted that their products will probably not suit me!!! So to my Question: I am now a proud home owner (well I share one common wall with a couple of older folk who cant appreciate their side of the duplex vibrating) so I cant exactly jam how I would like, or turn up a movie to real-life-action often, but I like to have the headroom!!! I have been using these KSB 1.1's for a long time now and I still love them (although I find it very strange that the pink noise blasts from the Yamaha sound different in each speaker, I found it was in either the amp and/or room acoustics as I tried swapping boxes on one channel and they do sound the same). Luckily the amp has pretty good parametric EQ control, so bringing home my SMAARTLIVE system from work I was able to dial everything in pretty nicely, and align the timing between boxes with precision!!! So I want to upgrade. I don't want a "whole new system" and with house and kids and working in the entertainment business and a house-mom for a wife, I don't have the budget for anything new!!! I was keeping my eyes peeled for a local deal on a KSF10.5. I seen a few deals on 8.5's but Im the type of guy who goes large or goes home when I deal with audio, so 10.5 what I'm looking for. I just came across a STEAL on a pair of RF-3's (original, not series 2) (under $200 for the pair!!!). I flirted with the idea of upgrading the series but the big question is if I upgrade the main L/R but not ATLEAST the center (which covers the bulk of sound) then will the tonal balance across the front sound stage be too different and not as pleasing as the lesser quality boxes with similar tonal balance across the system? My original plan was to get floor standing speakers for mains, and then "up"grade the current front KSB-1.1 to Front High speakers (or whatever they call that?) How different is the KSB's general tonal balance from the RF3's, and is it something the Aventage EQ woudnt be able to fix to an acceptable degree? Note that the system is MOSTLY used for general TV watching (by the family, I usually out working~) but occasionally I like to sit back and relax and let awesome sound surround and engulf me (until kids or wife ruin the zen experience!). Thank you for bearing with me (I have a hard time writing 2 sentence posts on these things!!!) and please if you have any ideas for me let me know, as I am anxious but hesitant at the same time to grab these RF3's... -AshayinFLA
  2. I currently own a set of RB-35s. I'd like to build up my audio with a set of fronts and a center to compliment these. I know I probably need a good sub as well. Would like to keep total cost below $500 if possible. Also, I live on Eastern Shore of Maryland - Would prefer the speakers to be local, drop-off or picked up (I'm willing to drive a few hours if the deal is right) Let me know what you have! I'm still learning so if you offer I may do some research or post another thread in the HT to make sure the speakers will work for my setup. Thanks for your patience with me and consideration in the sale! Cheers, Logan

    RF-35 - anyone using them?

    I've been offered a pair of RF-35's for $250 (trending around $400 on Audiogon BB) plus a SC-5 (no recent Audiogon sales) for another $25. Any thoughts on how these sound in home theater or 2-channel? How would they compare to Heresy (original) or Forte II's? I searched the forums and didn't get any hits on this speaker. Thanks in advance. This forum has been a real help as a newbie to Klipsch!

    Copper woofer issues?

    I would love to know why the Klipsch woofers over the last ten years or so have succumbed to so many cosmetic issues. Almost every woofer since they switched over to the spun copper type have dings, dents, crinkles and whatever else... Why would Klipsch not figure out a cure for these issues? There are a ton of manufacturers that use aluminum, copper or alloy woofers that never have disfigurement issues like the Klipsch do. For the most part I understand that the cosmetic defects do not attribute directly to poor sound but my goodness, looking at listings on Audiogon, Ebay, US Audio Mart....you name it. It is very rare to see these speakers without significant damage to the woofers. I have never pushed my speakers to the point that they distort yet there are a few tiny dings in the woofers that make zero sense to me. I am sure if Klipsch invested a little time to come up with an answer and distribute a different alloy mix into the woofers there would be way less problems with the end result. I mean I am a huge fan of the Heritage series and I would take any of them hands down over the Reference lines. Good old paper cones, poly cones and what have you very rarely distort even when pushed past their limits. Even the older SB and KSB series speakers dig deeper in the bass than the reference speakers do and keep their shape intact doing it. After ten plus years, did no one think of re-configuring the new copper woofers?
