New to me Klipsch RF-63

Recommended Posts

Just wanted share a good experience i had with forum member joeloster.  After seeing his ad in the garage sale section we worked out a deal for me to come pickup his cherry RF-63 speakers.  After carrying these speakers up his stairs and down mine i can attest that these are some monster speakers!  Joe described these speakers well and they are in beautiful shape.  I actually like the real wood veneer with the plastic front baffles, i think the future RF-7iii speakers will show well.  I was immediately impressed with the sound of these speakers.  The mids and highs meet my expectations of flagship speaker.  I think the biggest downfall of this speaker is the depth of it.  They are in my workout room and for them to fit the best i can not give the adequate space from the wall they need for bass reproduction.  I guess i do not have a whole lot to say except that these are well made speakers with a beautiful look and great sound, i am definitely sold on flagship klipsch speakers.

I was also amused when i looked in the rear port of the speaker to find a fork stuck to the bottom magnet and a big bouncy ball.  Kids will be kids! I found someones chocolate stash in my rf-35s rear port :D

As you and many on the forum know, I have raved about the RF-63's since the day I bought mine almost exactly 9 years ago.  IMO, the 63's are pretty special that perform way above their price point.

They are ridiculously deep aren't they.

I have mine about 11 inches from the front wall and the bass response is pretty spot on.  Looks like yours are about 7 inches maybe?

I have room to pull them out another 4". I will experiment.  I am running them on an emotiva A-300 and i think they would be happy with more power.  Just need to find a black pair for my upstairs now :D

When I first got my RF-63's, I was only using my Onkyo TX-SR705 AVR to drive them.  I then added a B&K Reference 4430 at 200w/ch to the mix.  Definitely opened the 63's up.  When I replaced the B&K with my current Acurus amps, all things improved noticeably especially with bass drive.  They took on a fast and punchy and detailed neutral characteristic that the B&K just did not produce.  Don't misunderstand the B&K did sound good with it's "warmish" tone but was a bit too relaxed and not as aggressive in the way the Acurus was able to really squeeze out what the 63's were capable of.

How do they compare with the RF-7 II's?

It has been so long since i have had my RF-7ii that i can not do a comparison.  I enjoy a full range speaker without a subwoofer so i think i would like the bass of the Two 10" woofers better.  The only comparison i can make is with the RF-62ii and it is a very noticeable upgrade more in the high and midrange.  I still need to expirament more for the bass to cone out in my 63s.
