Deal Details

Last Edited by e2g May 26, 2011 at 08:02 PM
I do not follow the used market prices for these speakers (Note: These are not the RF-7II, but the previous version), so I am unsure if this is a great deal on a set of new RF-7 speakers.

I am assuming these are new because I don't think this company sells anything used unless phoning them about a floor model.

Available in Black [wwstereo.com]and Cherry [wwstereo.com]

Price: $769.99 each / $1,539.98 pair - Black
Price: $796 each / $1,592 pair - Cherry
Coupon Code: PREMEMORIAL
Shipping: Free
Dealer: World Wide Stereo
Klipsch Authorized Dealer? Yes

When you own the RF-7 Tower Speaker you can expect to be surprised by what you haven't heard in your favorite music and movies. After all, this speaker was designed to perform just as good as your favorite concert hall or theater.

* Built in Hope, Arkansas
* Plays louder with less distortion
* Accurate midrange and high frequencies
* Powerful bass free from sonic blur
* Furniture-grade wood veneer enclosure

The Classic RF-7, with 102dB sensitivity, plays louder with less distortion than perhaps any speaker you've ever heard. It mates an 8-inch square Tractrix(R) Horn to a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver powered by a remarkably large, video-shielded magnet. Together, they deliver accurate non-fatiguing midrange and high frequencies at any volume.

Furthermore, the highest quality horn-loaded speakers, including the RF-7, are an absolute must for delivering the powerful, detailed soundtracks of today's demanding blockbusters. Perhaps that's why Klipsch professional cinema speakers are chosen by top theater operators worldwide.

The advanced Tractrix Horn geometry and compression driver technology that reproduces a more genuine, lifelike sound in theaters is the same technology that is applied to the RF-7. This speaker's horn design enables it to produce more output using less energy. In turn, this improves reliability and reduces distortion, so you hear exactly what you're supposed to, instead of speaker coloration.

The RF-7's two 10-inch Cerametallic woofers with 90-ounce magnets provide powerful, deep bass free from sonic blur. A pair of large flared ports bolster bass response while reducing turbulence. The biwireable, audiophile-grade crossover improves imaging and detail across the sound spectrum, with premium wiring used for optimum clarity.

Dual windowpane bracing and cast metal woofer frames control resonance at even the most intense volume, while broad-stance outrigger feet add stability and allow easy leveling on any surface.

Specifications

* FREQUENCY RESPONSE 32Hz-20kHz (+-)3dB
* POWER HANDLING 250 w max continuous (1000 w peak)
* SENSITIVITY 102dB @ 2.83 volts/1 meter
* NOMINAL IMPEDANCE 8 ohms
* CROSSOVER FREQUENCY 2200Hz
* TWEETER K-67-DV 1.75" (4.45cm) Titanium dome compression driver
* HIGH FREQUENCY HORN 8" square 90(o)x60(o) Tractrix(r) Horn
* WOOFER Two K-1089-AV 10" (25.4cm) Cerametallic(r) cone / cast aluminum frame
* ENCLOSURE MATERIAL MDF
* ENCLOSURE TYPE Bass reflex via dual rear-firing ports
* INPUT CONNECTIONS 2 sets of binding post speaker terminals
* DIMENSIONS Height: 45" (115cm) (br) Width: 11.6" (29.7cm) (br) Depth:16" (41cm)
* WEIGHT 90 lbs. (40.8kg) ea
Sale Ends 5/28/2011 midnight--> SEEMS LIKE CODE MAY NOT BE WORKING ANYMORE!!

Additionally, SDnewb, found a good deal on the RC-52II for $108.62. I have changed the title to include this great deal.

in order not to clutter the first post more, I just wanted to say I have ordered from this seller multiple times and they are very good to deal with. I have had some bad luck with one transaction but was quickly resolved.

Seems like an awesome price for their Reference Series flagship model. Even if it is the first generation model.

According to the Klipsch website these were "BUILT UNTIL 2006", so even though they are new they are about 5 years old. Just an FYI if that type of thing matters to you.

There is currently a used pair selling on Audiogon for $1400 obo + substantial S&H charges. So $1540 for new ones seem pretty good in my opinion.

My past experience with Klipsch RF-82's was mixed. Amazing bass and clarity, but the horn tweeters are best for large rooms where you can place them a pretty good distance away. In a small to midsize room the highs can be very overpowering pretty quickly. I eventually sold mine for some much more expensive B&W's, which work in my small living room much better (at the expense of the Klipsch's amazing bass response).

Not to get too far off topic, but I finally had to try out all those Polk Monitor speakers that are constantly on sale. I had the M70's, M40's, CS2 and PSW12. Yea, they're cheap all right - but they are all garbage. I would go for used speakers from a different brand or better Polk line, before ever buying that Monitor series crap. EEK!

Just another FYI, this should come with Klipsch 5 year warranty as well (i think its 5 years but don't quote me on that). I am trying to figure out where did they get this batch from? I may spread the word over at the Klipsch forum if it hasn't hit there yet.

These rf-7s were actually made in 2010 i believe. These are the classic RF-7s and not the originals. That is the first time they made that dark cherry and oh boy are those sexy. I rock the newer version of these and they are wicked. By the way i had the rf-82s in a smaller/ midsized room and the horn tweeter never overpowered me i really grew attached to them.

Klipsch's are great for home theater. Just not my cup of tea for music, but their dirt cheap price always tempt me to look at them.

Oh, 2010? That's good to know. It says these are made in Hope, AK which is surprising considering nearly every brand (even "audiophile" brands) is outsourcing mfg. to China, etc.

Out of curiousity did you use your RF-82's for music or home theater? I loved 'em for home theater, but for high volume music they wore me right out. The horn tweeters probably wouldn't have been as much of an issue if I didn't have to have a rock concert in my living room everytime I listen to music!LMAO

Thanks and repped. I included this in the original post in order to set off any deal alerts rather than create a new thread. That's amazing, and strange at the same time why that is heavily discounted.
