Summary: this speaker is a very solid built great sounding surround speaker! it is a bit expensive but it is well worth it you cant tell that there is even a speaker behind you just ambient sounds coming from every direction I could only imagine what it would sound like if I had 2 of these! I will be ordering another one soon to complete my surround system!!
Summary: The Klipsch RS-42 II surround speakers are amazing. I have had them installed for about 9 months and they have never failed to impress me with each listening. In my setup they are paired with Klipsch 8" RS tower speakers, a Klipsch 10" sub, and a Klipsch RS center channel speaker to round out my 5.1 system. All are driven by a Pioneer SC-65. These speakers really bring out the directional and ambient sounds. The sound is well balanced throughout the range.
Summary: Great complimentary surround speakers to my front and center channel Klipsch Icon Series speakers; providing higher frequency notes in very clear and precise detail. Excellent for listening to anything from classical music to HD movie audio.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: These are the perfect speakers to complete my 5.1 surround sound in my bedroom. I have two Klipsch front speakers, a center, and sub hooked into a Yamaha receiver and the sound blows me away. Very happy with my Klipsch collection and they sound amazing while watching Blu Rays on my 60" Samsung Plasma.
Summary: After reading other reviews for the Klipsch RF-52/RS-42 II Reference floor standing speakers, there is not much that I can add other than to concur with the excellent reviews of Klipsch's outstanding product(s). I'm using the RF-42's as the rear surround left and right speakers in a 5.1 home theater system/setup. I had an existing center channel and sub-woofer (an older Klipsch RC-3 and KSW-12)... it may be obvious that I'm a long term Klipsch fan.
