This is a good trade correct?

I am in the negotiation process with someone I found locally on CraigsList. We have settled on trading my 2 RF-52's. 1 RC-52 and Klipsch SUB-12 plus $300.00. For his 2 Klipsch RF-7's, 1 RC-7 and Klipsch SW-15. I assume this is a good deal? But just want to make sure. Thanks for the input. And the reason being for the trade is he just moved and is looking to down grade, while I am moving mid Aug and looking to upgrade.

IMO, RF-7"s = $900.00 in great condition, RC-7 = $400.00 in great condition, SW-15 = $300.00 in great condition =================$1600.00

IMO, RF-52's = $375.00 in great condition, RC-52 = $200.00 in great condition, SUB-12 = $225.00 in great condition, plus $300.00=====$1100.00

IMO, yes a good deal.

Sound wise, will this be a significant improvement for me?

Oh yeah. More impact for HT, more presence, much bigger sound. The RF-52's might have the edge in the midrange in a smaller space but the RF-7's will energize just about any room from the smallest to the biggest. Better parts, wood cabinet, and just plain bigger usually equates to overrall better sound.

Yes i am kind of nervous about it all. He gave me his address and I am suppose to meet him at his house which makes me think it may be real. After he sent me some more picture last night I noticed that he does not have the SW-15, it has the copper cones so I believe it is the RSW-15. Th more I learn the more I think its to good to be true. We will see on Sunday tho!

The trade went thru. I am now the proud owner of a pair of RF-7's, an RC-7 and an RSW-15. Can't wait to get it all set up and working. Do you all think it would be beneficial to bridge my Onkyo M282 for the RC-7? Or just use the receiver? I will be using the upa-2 for the RF-7s.

Sweet.

If the 282 is bridgeable, why not? If any concerns, just use one of the channels of the 282 and use the Onkyo AVR for the surrounds.

Here is a pic of the new front stage, until the move when they will be in a nice big theater room in the basement level. I currently live in an apartment and since its Sunday everyone is home so I haven't had a chance to crank it up. However, on first impressions, the biggest upgrade is by far the sub, this thing is a monster and it goes so much deeper than the HSU. When I ran my setup mic it had everything set at 40hz, (fronts, center, surrounds) should I put it all to 80hz? Or can the RF-7s do 40hz?
