Advice on upgrade to RF25

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,
a friend of mine has a pair of RF25 in storage that he wants to sell. Unfortunately we're a few hundred KMs apart, so testing the speakers in person is not practical, which is why I'm looking for advice.
I currently have a pair of Klipsch SB3 bookshelf speakers, so I'm wondering if the upgrade would be worth it, and what improvements the RF25 would provide.

The speakers will be used for music as well as movies, so I might keep the SB3 for the rears.

Thanks in advance ;)

The SB3 bookshelves are great but the RF25s will give you a lot more bass, more detailed treble and just all around fuller sound.

thanks for your reply. on paper the RF25 can go as low as 45HZ, but I'm actually wondering if their two 6.5'' woofer would provide more bass than the one 8" in the SB3, although I'm more concerned about the mids to be honest.

You should notice a definite improvement in midrange clarity.

 

If you want even more of an upgrade in midrange go with a three way design like a Heresy, forte, KLF-20 or 30, etc.

thanks, I'll keep an eye on whatever I can find second hand, unfortunately there's not much available here in Australia, unless one is  willing to pay 5 times the US/EU price.
