Center channel list?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum and I’m wondering if there is a list of center channel speakers that says that this is our “best” speaker to the “lowest” speaker? There are so many Klipsch centers to choose from its a little overwhelming. From what I’ve read, you want to buy the best center that you can afford. 

 

Thanks, David

You need to get the one that matches your mains anything else won't timbre' match and will be a waste of money.

There is no list of Klipsch center speakers that I know of.  In general the R series is entry level, RP is middle, and RF is the top of the line.  The best Klipsch center speaker IMO is the RC-64 III which features four  6.5" woofers.

 

I am in the camp of "get the best center speaker you can find" with all due respect to Mr. @Frzninvt directly upstream ^^^ who suggests timbre matching the center to the L/R speakers in the same family.

I guess it would depend if there’s a budget. RP450c is very affordable now. Very good Too. They have newer versions of the RP line but more expensive. If budget is not a problem the RC64 iii would be be best but it’s huge and like they said. Try and match to what you have now. Not sure what your future plans are but if your building your system, go with he best you can afford.

Like most things, if you line them up by price you'll line them up by "lowest" to "best".

 

Do you have a pair of main speakers you'll be matching a center to?

im personally disgusted with klipsch's sad and pathetic efforts to obscure the lines of speakers and rearranging the item #s for no good reason.

 

first reference was obscured by calling the cheaper line reference, after what 20 yrs of reference meaning reference?

this latest go around i cant even tell if anything was changed...but the item #s again are obscured for no good purpose except to sow confusion and almost deceive customers into buying whatever they want them to buy

 

im a big fan of the speakers

im beyond disgusted with klipsch marketing and their inability to realize that the scam they are running is hurting their own brand

 

wtf would Paul Klipsch say about this marketing b.s.?  nothing good

 

i reco buying the previous lines simply because used klipsch is way cheap compared to the crazy markup of the latest line

again to clarify...i love the speakers and technology and am growing to hate the marketing team to the point i cant even pay attention

 

wtf is a 5002?  why do i have to learn a brand new numbering system for what are the same speakers?  oops i nswered my own question

 

i do wish klipsch interacted with us here

you ladies and gents are screwing up a great brand, purely through marketing gaffes...big ones

ask us before you keep going down this road (my 2c)

who likes klipsch more than the forum participants? 

 

i realize z larent company bought klipsch and likely nobody from old klipsch mzrketing can say what i just said for fear of being fired by a big corporation...but i repeat...everybody who values klipsch sees this game being played and are not impressed.

 

i digress, as i often do.

 

i like the rp250c personally and a 450c for really big rooms

Thanks for the replies. I’m putting together a system and do to space constrictions I have to use bookshelves as left and rights. I’ll probably get 500Ms.

I’ve seen some posts lately of folks finding great deals ($200 or less) on the older RC62ii. I’d consider one of those if you can find one, and if it will fit. I used mine with RB61ii fronts, and I’m currently using it with RP280Fs and it’s more than up to the task.
