Summary: They sound nice on surround sound for movies. Could use a bit more bass for stereo. Although the provided woofer is impressive in surround sound, and to be fair, I haven't really got far into tweaking my new Pioneer receiver to drive these speakers optimally.
Summary: Ordered the rf-52 and my wife(classical musician) thought they were too big so I also got the rf-42. Played them side by side with her and sent the rf-42 back. There is no comparison. The 52 sounds so much better.
