Would love suggestions of what to try and find to listen to for my fronts (and possibly center)

7 posts in this topic

I have an older set of Synergy bookshelf speakers and a center channel (only way I could gain WAF back then). I've always enjoyed the Klipsch sound, but I'm looking for something to put in a home theater projection setup. At first I was looking to get some tower speakers from the reference line (either the RF-62 or possibly RF-82). However, those are rear-firing and I really don't want to give up the extra space to pull them off the front wall where they need to go, as opposed to a front-firing speaker where I can put them up closer to the front wall without as many issues. Obviously, there's the F-30, but if you guys have any suggestions on something else that you think I should try and find and take a listen to, I'd appreciate any suggestions. If I go the F-30 route for the fronts, should I still consider the RC-62 for the center?

I personally don't really care for the synergy series. The reference really doesn't need to be that far off the wall. My rf-63's are only about 6 inches out and the breathe just fine. My favorite bang for your buck speakers in the line up is the rf-62's and rc-62. My vote is for those and get them from mike at acoustic sound design. Hands down best price. But you gotta call!

If you need front firing, maybe look into the older CF series.

Really it won't matter. Your going to xo the low stuff to the subs. If you give them 2 or 3" you won't lose nothing from 80hz on up imo.

What you gain by going reference will be huge compared to any tiny performance loss.

I second to what Ref said, I have my RF7-II about 4" from the wall on one side and the other is about 1" of the wall because I toe them to an angle and the sound are great. I, like you, must make the wife happy or there will be some bla bla bla once in a while. So far, the position I have them at now are great for me. Try it.

A down firing subwoofer can push a lot of air with just a few inchs of space. Im sure an rf-82 or a rf-62 would have no problem with the same size space.

Thanks for the advice everyone! Bsdme2, I was thinking about how if I toe them in a little anyways, that would also buy some more space. I can now go back to leaning towards getting the 62's all around. Of course, after checking out craigslist (it had been so long since I was on there, that I forgot how addictive regularly checking all the surrounding craigslist areas can be), if that guy selling his pair of CF-2's wants to come down off his $475 price, those are some beasts, and I saw a guy selling his SVS PB-12/2, which would be a nice monster of a sub, and .... OK, time for me to go get off the fence and get out there and try out some speakers and pull the trigger on something!
