Klipschter Posted July 16, 2009 Share Posted July 16, 2009 My system includes two RF82 mains and I have to say I am disappointed with their bass output. I'm not one of these guys who needs to shake the whole house, but it seems like the minisystem the dishwashers use at my restaurant has more bumps than my Klipsch towers. I expected a lot more out of a set of speakers that--combined--boast four 8inch drivers. I know a lot of you are going to say what are you bitching about you have a fathom sub (which I haven't hooked up to my system yet, hopefully tomorrow) but I do a lot of listening without a subwoofer--just using 2 channels for music. To get a decent thump out of the towers I have to jack the receiver volume way up. But of course this results in horrible sound quality where the low frequency content is totally disproportional to the much louder high frequency content. When I am not using a subwoofer I have my RF82s set to large on my receiver and the subwoofer setting (i.e. both, subwoofer, front) on the receiver set to front. I'm fairly certain its not a speaker wire issue either as test tones run fine through my receiver's setup process. Is the problem my rather wimpy budget receiver? Or were my expectations of a solid bass foundation from my 82s set too high? I also have concerns about how my RF82s blending with my new subwoofer. I'm worried that the lack of bass in my mains is gonna make the sub stand out like a sore thumb. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
