Premiere "RF-7s"

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Am i the only one who is wondering how a future real flagship in the new Premiere Reference line would look and sound.? Does anyone know if there is a new one on the drawing board.

My local dealer sold me a second pair (floor model) rf7ii's because they had to make room for the new replacement.

I can't seem to find anything about what may be to come... Other than I got a wicked deal on the 7ii's so he could make room.

I'm curious too! But will not replace, no matter how cool. I have to keep telling myself that! ;)

Just my $.02, but IMO I don't think they'll go down the RF-7 route again, I'm thinking they might release something like the RF-83 and 63 or something new altogether. I have nothing to base this on just a gut feeling.

I think if for nothing else, change. We've technically have had three releases of the RF-7, the original, the "Classic" and the RF-7 II.

In my opinion they will at least go to the silicone molded horns, or at least ought to from a marketing standpoint. Makes no sense to me to say those are better than plastic while your flagship continues to have plastic.

Would be very interested to see what a Premiere RF-7 would look like. The Premiere series is so damn gorgeous. It's my current wallpaper. :D

RF-7 III

Three way would be nice - with the same inverted horn loaded cone as the Palladium.

We've been told several times that from Klipsch employees that they have no plans as of now to replace the RF-7ii.  But who knows....

I'm looking forward to the next series of flagship speakers. The changes in the RP Series are growing on me

The release of the Premier speaker was to make Synergy and Icon user feel that they are getting some of the Reference quality at a slightly lesser cost.  Remember, Klipsch has to appeal to the average Joe so it will not be like the Palladiums, lol.  It has to be affordable to the masses.

 

It is really interesting that speaker companies have made incremental change on various types of speakers over the last 30 years but, many of the vintage speakers can give all the modern speakers a run for the money.

Well not that it has to BE like the Palladiums... Just some trickle down, maybe just the shape, or a 3-way design. So the reference flagship feels like they have a piece of palladium technology - same as synergy & icon feel they get some reference technology.
