Summary: I purchased these towers to replace the towers in my Klipsch Quintet system. I have two Klipsch 12" subs in my home theater. I had no idea how much bass I was missing from full sized towers. I had a family member listen to the speakers without the subs playing and they were as impressed as I was with their deep bass and clear highs. I set the crossover to 80hz so the towers play plenty of midrange while the subs handle the bass.
Summary: These are outstanding speakers capable of being played with even the most modest power. I am currently playing these using a Denon 590 at 75 watts RMS (introductory model Denon receiver), and these speakers sing! These speakers are capable of quality full range sound, with crisp highs, and deep tight bass. Although I do use a subwoofer now, I didn't at first, and was amazed at the bass response.
Upgraded all my old klipsch speakers (2001-2003 Reference models) to the newer reference line and blown away.

Summary: I had some very old Klipsch speakers (13 years old) , none of them are blown, broken , and in mint condition and have gotten various comments that my speakers are new. (Family, friends etc) mostly because of the sound quality and premium Klipsch build. I am upgrading from RC-3 (center) , RF-3 II (floor standing) , RS-3 II (surround) and RSW 15 (subwoofer) which have not been in production since 2001-2004.
Why---Why---Do people post completely irrelevant and irresponsible 1 star reviews based on everything but the product???

Summary: Giving this product a 1 star is tantamount to slander. I wonder at times that envious people with an agenda are slanting product reviews just to be evil. I am heartened to know it appears most viewers cast it aside as we used to do with the East German judges scores at the Olympics. I own these incredible speakers and am very happy I bit the bullet and finally got what I paid for.
Summary: I bought a pair of these for my 5.1 system in my bedroom. They are well made and the sound is exceptional. I have never had a complaint about any Klipsh product I have owned. They just keep making their products better.
Summary: I upgraded from a set of Klipsch satellite speakers and there is just no comparison. These speakers are so crystal clear and accurate. I love listening to my old music just to hear detail that I never knew was there.
Summary: I was sold the first time hearing them. I've been a long time Polk Audio fan, as they are great speakers. I was visiting my local electronic store looking to upgrade my Polk Audio Monitor 70 for a new set of Polk Audio RTI A7. That was the plan anyway, till the sales clerk asked me to listen these bad boys... and that was it, a new Klipsch fan was born. The sound was incredible, very distinct sound in comparison to the other brands I heard there that day.
I'm not *into* speakers, but these Klipsch speakers are amazing!

Summary: My husband's hobbies are golf and home entertainment systems. We've been married 13 years, and my husband has cobbled together surround sound speaker sets. He's always wanted a set of great speakers. My husband bought all the Klipsch speakers and components needed for our home entertainment system. He had been recognized at work for his outstanding work ethic, so I suggested to him he should do something fun with some of the money.
Summary: I started off my Klipsch 5.1 with RF-42's in the front left & right. I really wanted the RF-52's but the local store only had the 42's and the 62's in stock. Once I could spare more money I bought these for the front left/right and put the RF-42's in the rear with a RF-52 center. It sounds amazing. You get more mid with these over the 42's although you will still want to have a sub. The horn is what really makes these speakers shine. Crystal clear highs and mids.
