RB-5 IIs - wow

Recommended Posts

Man these speakers can really hold their own.  So incredibly detailed.  They're my favorite Klipsch that I've ever had, which includes:

 

RF-25

RF-7

forte II

Chorus I

KG 4

 

Such a huge sound from a small speaker.  Granted, for bookshelf speakers they are quite large.  I bet if you did a blindfolded test to have someone guess what type of speakers they are no one would conclude that they are bookshelves.

 

I told my wife that now that I went with smaller speakers we should get a bigger tv since there's more room.  She didn't seem to agree.

 

By the way, cherry plus copper = :wub2:

Wow that's quite a compliment considering the ones you've had. Glad you are enjoying them! I have the RB-5's in my bedroom and they really do sound great. Haven't heard the II's so can't comment on a comparison.

 

Oh, by the way I hate to be the bearer of bad news but someone has stolen your center speaker.:o

Yeah after all the work I went through making a stand for it I ended up selling it.  But, I sold it for twice what I paid so I came out ahead.  Selling some other stuff to build up an RC-7 fund.

 

As far as I know the only difference between the RB-5 and RB-5 II is the IIs are internally wired with Z series Monster Cable.  I think everything else is exactly the same.

There is to much room on one side , Im sorry to say it but you probably going to have to get a bigger tv to keep everything even  .

I bet that's a perfect combo with those SVS subs.

Perfect match.  They play incredibly well together.

Love mine as well, if you like the 5ii's you will absolutely be floored when you hear RB-75's.

If you like the 5's and the 75's you'd be floored by a pair of RC-7's

He's right.  I would not say night and day but noticeable performance gain.

 

I have owned three pairs of RB-5's over the last 10 years and still consider them the 2nd best Klipsch bookshelf speakers I have ever heard.  They are certainly very special speakers.

 

Congrats on you new Klipsch discovery.

Ok please stop.  :D

Once you get your RC-7 center might just be tempted to complete an RC-7 L C R, absolutely fantastic and extremely capable speakers, could move the RB-5's to rear surround duty.

RB-5s hare great speakers that I think are highly underrated in the Klipsch hierarchy. I've had a couple pairs and have my remaining pair for sale as I just don't use them enough. Much as I love them, I feel they'd be better off with someone else enjoying them.

Looks like the ones Parts Express sold that were 24" and can be filled with sand.  Have a couple of pairs. Very sturdy.
