Summary: Amazing speakers. Bought a pair of these as an upgrade from my HTIB onkyo set i had. I just have a 2.1 system now but thats enough to blow my mind away. I also bought the outlet version of the speakers. As far as i know these looked like they were never even setup by anyone.
Summary: I purchased these RF-82 II to replace my Klipsch KG-4 speakers, I wasn't expecting a big improvement over the kg-4's. But WOW what an extreme difference it made. I can hear many more sound effects in all of the movies I watch. The overall sound is much cleaner and crisper than the kg-4's.
Summary: Having had super speaker enclosures from the good old days, I was skeptical about getting new ones as I was used to having 12 to 15 inch woofers, etc. and wanted to get the good full bass sound,but the 82's came across quite good and produce a very good overall sound, but do find I need to crank up...
Summary: Great sounding speaker for the price. if you love loud rock and roll music, this is your speaker. its size alone tells you something big is gonna happen. excellent base, very hi treble, perhaps a bit too high, and hi impedance makes this speaker crank with a low wattage amp.
Pros: Price, massive size if like big, excellent bass
Summary: Running denon flagship 4520ci. 150 watts channel 9.2.. 2 reference 15" subs. 2 rf 82 s front. 2rb61s front height. Center rc62. 2rs52s surround. 2 rs62s surround back. Unbelievable volume and sound quality! ! Wanted this since teen years.
Pros: Great concert sound whether watching a movie or cranking out the music!
Summary: Super detail and good spactial quality. Open but tight bass. Some have indicated that the horn can be highs too bright, I don't find that to be the case. After a month of listening, I bought a second pair. Good for classic, rock, jazz and home theater. Nice value.
Pros: The 8" woofers are large enough for good bass, but still tight. The horn is not too bright for me. Good open sound and good looks as well. Great floorstanding speakers. Good value.
Cons: Vinyl surface covering, but still attractive and it keeps the price down.
