Klipsch Reference Series RF-52
« on: May 04, 2010, 01:57:42 PM »
Has anyone heard the newer Klipsch products?  Per their specs they would seem to be a good match to the SEX (or any low powered amp.)  The RF-52 is very reasonably priced and have good reviews.  Unfortunately, no one around here has them for auditions.

Thanks

I used a pair of RF-7's with my paramounts and loved it.  I wired the OPT's for 4ohms.  It did need to get turned up a bit to get enough current for the woofers to open up.

They paired well the S.E.X amp, but obviously with less volume.  More than enough for a small room.  The RF-7's had 102db efficiency.  The amp was wired for 8ohms.

You should take the amp to the dealer and give them a try.

I had a pair of RF-25's matched to a S.E.X. amp and had countless comments on how good it sounded.
