What can I do to upgrade my RF-3 II speakers?

Recommended Posts

I have a broken binding post on one speaker and my RFC-3 may have a blown driver or something wrong with the crossover. It's it crackles and tripped off my Emotiva XPA-3

Call klipsch for replacement parts. They might still have stuff for that series. Also check RCA on that specific channel of amp mi had a faulty RCA that my old xpa-5 hated. Didnt matter which channel it went to did the same. Protection mode

get things fixed first before you jump into an upgrade modification. there is a lot that you can do to your RF3. Is the intended upgrade for HT or 2channel?. Welcome to the forum you are in the right place. Best regards Moray James.

My thoughts were if i need a driver to fix my RFC-3 II center speaker Id rather upgrade than go back with stock.Same with the broken post on my floor speaker and how it connects to the crossover.

Order a new, replacement driver from Klipsch along with the crossover. The two together will probably cost just over $200 or so. The crossover will come with the terminal cup and attached binding posts. Start by getting it back to where it's supposed to be.

Many don't understand how difficult it is to actually upgrade a driver - -it's not like you can just pick something you like better and plop it in - there are mathematical relationships, and they effect the crossover too.

If you want improvement, replace the stock resistors with Mills non - inductive resistors and replace the two orange/red oval capacitors with some AudynPlus capacitors from www.partsexpress.com

Thank u very much DeanG thats solid advice.I'm awaiting a call back from Klipsch right now.I'm curious what effects the resistor and caps have on the speakers performance.I'm not doubting it just wondering what the benefits are?
