Did I screw up?

I was reading another thread and it made me curious. Are my RS-62 IIs not timbre matched with the rest of my system? Would it have been better to go with the 52s or would it make that much of a difference? I would imagine it is, but in the package deals klipsch puts the 52s with the rest of my system...whoops?

No issues at all. When it comes to surrounds in the Reference series, all tweeters are the same similar(1 inch) and any of the three(RS-42II's, RS-52II's, RS-62II's) will be fine. You will definitely get a bit more presence with the RS-62II's.

I would imagine it is, but in the package deals klipsch puts the 52s with the rest of my system...whoops?

Remember, the Reference HT packages are grouped to a pricepoint as well as timbre matching.

I kind of thought that to bill. But now I’m not sure. After seeing

a few different reference speaker drivers that I would have assumed where the

same and are not.

Here are a few examples an rb-51ii horn and an rb-61ii horn.

Both 1” horns in the same line. And the other example is the 6.5” driver in the

rb-61ii and rf-62ii. I would have thought they would be the same drivers but are

not. Having owned all the RS speakers

(42,52 and the 62) I wouldn’t be surprised if some if not all had different

horns mated with the different size drivers.

First pic is the rb-51ii 1" horn

As you know the rs-62ii are monsters. The rs-42ii and even

rs-52ii are really small is size next to the rs-62ii. No way they would fit the

horn from the rb-61ii in the rs-42ii or the rs-52ii. But looking at the rb-61ii

next to the rs-62ii (own both) my guess is that is what’s in them. And probably something closer to what’s in the

rb-51ii (horn) is what’s in the rs-42ii and rs-52ii.
