Amazing sounding Klipsch center speaker, Great value at this price
28 July 2014
Summary: Klipsch RC-52 II is an amazing complementary center speaker, with great all around sound. I bought this speaker to boost the clarity in voice dialogue, and have not been disappointed one bit. I feel the Klipsch reference series is fantastic sound for a relatively low price compared to other brands that have same sound specs.
when the bass hits on this center and the bolts are not installed it makes a funny sound. once you plug it

Summary: if you don't use the provided adjustment bolts on the bottom you will get a sound that makes you think the speaker is blown. when the bass hits on this center and the bolts are not installed it makes a funny sound. once you plug it, you can crank it up and love it. I would however recommend the 62ii for another hundred bucks or so. not that this speaker is lacking bass, being able to hit 57hz on a center (62 ii) could really come in handy on some movies like Gravity.
The sound is great & the one I replaced I had for at ...

Summary: Replaced an old Klipsch center with this one. The sound is great & the one I replaced I had for at least 10 years. Klipsch really builds a quality speaker. Hope to replace the rest of the system soon. On the floor or in the ceiling.
Excellent enhancement to my already great Bose T20 system

Summary: I bought this to enhance my Bose T20 system. The Bose center channel was a much more compact 6" speaker that worked fine in a smaller room, but when moved to a larger room the male voices became difficult to hear despite recalibration of the system. I worried this much, much, larger speaker would overpower the system. I am here to report it did not! It enhanced the clarity of voices and I am very pleased I went with this option.
Summary: People either love Klipsch or hate them. I love the precision of the sound - you get the highest highs, the lowest lows and everything in between. These speakers are part of the following system: Denon AVR-X3000 2 Klipsch RB-61 1 Klipsch RC-52 1 BIC America F12 The speakers are fairly large, but fit perfectly in my entertainment center (which I purchased just for this system). My volume goes up to 95.
Summary: After about 20 years of using Bose Acoustimass 5 and 7's I figured it was about time for an upgrade. I just bought this 3/1/2014 at Fry's Electronics for $295.99 in their store. There web site shows it as more expensive then it was in the store. I bought the full boat of the Klipsch Reference Series 52 II front x2, Center, and surround x4 for my new 7.2 receiver. I will review them all separately.
Summary: As a first step to upgrading my sound system (a pair of 15-year-old Klipsch bookshelf speakers), I picked the RC-52 II. I live in an apartment, and the RC-52 II provides the right balance between sound output and the amount of space it takes up in my entertainment setup. I love having a center channel in my setup, and the Kilpsch looks great and sounds great.
Pros: Looks great (black ash finish); doesn't overwhelm your room; sounds great
