These rarely go on sale this low. Seems like a very good opportunity. Although if you haven't already researched these and know what they are, you probably should before dropping $2k on them.

These are head and shoulders above Klipsch's current reference line, both the lower end best buy stuff — 25C (2 woofers 5 1/4" each, center)+ R-24F, 26F or 28F towers (2-woofers 4", 6", 8" woofers floorstanding, 1/2" tweeters) which are not even the true audiophile speakers. The RF-7II is also like two steps up over their mid range RP-260F, RP 280F, RP-280FA, which have close to the audiophile Klipsch, but are still rejected by the hardcore audiophiles as 'close but not the *real* thing.' For the curious the RP line has 3/4" titanium tweeter (iirc).

There is no proper center to match with the RP-280F(A) as they never made one. So you get stuck with the R-440C, drop that like a hot potato and get that RC-64II if you can. Technically he RC-64II is from an older line of speakers but it's light years better than the stuff that came after it. X4 6" woofers and 1" tweeter vs the 4" woofers and 1/2" tweeter in the R-440C.

(Edit) I forgot they also made an RP-450C, this is probably what a Klipsch dealer would sell you to match with RP-280F(A), but the RC-64ii is still a big step up over the RP-450C.

These are on Sale because Klipsch just launched the RF-7III. The R7-II as well as the new ones all have 10" woofers that are larger than many subwoofers and are the modern incarnation of Klipsch's top of the line home theater system. They have 1" ceramic tweeters and all the jazz that put Klipsch on the map as a speaker company. The RF-7III Retail for $1800 each atm, this is a total steal. That center speaker is also the only modern audiophile grade center speaker for a large home theater setup from Klipsch at the moment.

If you want Klipsch and you have he budget, this is going to be a one-every 6-18+ months deal that will likely only be beat buying used stuff.

The center is the most important speaker for home theater. If that's your use, that RC64-II is absolutely the best speaker you can buy to pair with your RP-280F(A)s

It's massive. Almost as large as the RP-280F laid on its side.

RF-82 ii is an older line. You're mixing it up with their newer line the RP-280F.

The RF-7ii in this thread is the highest end of the generation that includes the RF-82ii. The RF-7iii that just launched is the highest end in the generation with the RP-280F.

If Klipsch was consisitent the RP-280F would be the RF-82iii. However, Klipsch was purchased and they dropped their old box line called 'Klipsch Synergy' or something because it has developed a reputation for not being the true 'reference' line speakers. They then made an half-way line that's not truly the reference series product and but an evolution of Synergy and 1/2 step up from the Synergy line and called it the R-26F or basic 'reference' line. Then to distinguish the true 'Reference' line they came up with the RP or 'Reference Premier' moniker.

So the R-26F and such are basically an improved version of the old systems that aren't actually Klipsch's nice stuff. The RP series is the succeeds to the reference series.

RP-280F (current reference line)
R-eference P-remier x2 woofers 8" each, F-loor standing.

R-28F (current budget line)
R-reference x2 woofers 8" floorstanding.

RF-82ii (one generation old reference line)
Reference Flooarstanding -x2 8" woofers second generation.

One generation old reference is MUCH better than the current budget stuff.

Another number you'll see if you get into this Klipsch stuff is the 'A' that 'A' stands for atmos. You can get Atmos speakers that sit on top of any of the other Klipsch speakers and shoot upwards. Or if you get the RP-280FA, it's built in. It's just a RP-280F + a Klipsch Atmos speaker built in to the top. It doesn't have any major benefit over an RP-280F + separate Atmos speaker.

DIY SoundGroup is cheaper if you're okay with DIY. It's pretty straightforward since he does the cuts. Also will put together the crossover if you want.

I loved the Heresy II, but haven't heard them in decades.
I'd guess the III to be better?
Have you heard them against the RF7?

I haven't, I'm sure they both have their own sound though.

that means nothing... new ones are much more expensive and we may not see a sale on them for 1-2 years. i also saw the close ups and changes are not that big.

Would the RC-64II centers go well with RP-280FAs?

how often do the 280's go on sale? I'm still trying to decide on the atmos vs no atmos versions (I have no easy way to add ceiling speakers).

My use case would be both music and tv.
The split of time spent for each changes from time to time, but they are both pretty important to me.
What specifically about the Heresys didn't fit for tv use?
