RF-82 VS KLF-10

Recommended Posts

I'd probably go for the KLF-10's myself as they have the larger cabinet, larger woofers and larger horn. They should play louder and have more bass. Plus they have real wood veneer instead of the cheaper vinyl wrap.

All good points in favor of the KLF-10's. The only plus for the RF-82's would probably an improvement in high end extension due to the titanium tweeter. But for about 60 bucks you can buy titanium diaphragms for the KLF's from Bob Crites. I got them for my KLF-10's, and liked them, but I felt that the horn lens had more to give and ended up attaching FaitalPro drivers to the KLF-10 horn lens, and along with crossover updates and 6" stands, really took them to another level. In other words, I think the KLF-10's have more potential than the RF's.

To be honest, I'd forgotten there was a KLF-10.  I do recall the KLF-20 and 30.  I guess the 10 came along later?  Anyway...I've never owned a pair of KLF's, but I did own a pair of RF-82 II's for a while, and they were quite impressive sounding for the money I paid.  I prefer wood veneer to vinyl (don't we all?), but ultimately, to me it's about sound and value (and vinyl can look real nice, too).  I would bet the KLF's will have better resale though, if that's a factor.

The 82's I listened to sounded fantastic. I was impressed.

They can be had at times at bargain price.
