Been waiting for this deal to come back. It comes on every couple months but think this is the lowest I have seen. I already have the floorstanding speakers and surround speakers that sound incredible. Just ordered the center channel and 12" subwoofer.

RC263 $161.95 center channel

Food for thought ->

The JBL 5 series everyone loves came out in 2011, with the 530s for ~$550. They get discounted to $300 and people still, in 2019, go ape over them.

The Infinity R162 came out in 2015, use technology from $1000+ Revel speakers for $500, built specifically to be the halo product of the Infinity line.... Barely anyone talks when they get put on sub $200 pricing! WTF.

The JBL's people still act like they are these giant slayers when they get put on sale and yet no ever talks about these. These are EASILY at leeassttt on par with the JBL 530s (different sound signature so it's all personal preference of course). I believe I've read some on reddit that consider them better.

Don't sleep on these speakers. If you are even thinking about it just realize it uses the same tweeter waveguide as verrrryyy expensive Revel speakers. Harmon owns both Infinity and Revel so I guess for the Infinity's top of the line they strapped that on it. Just remember these came out much later than the JBLs and at the same price bracket as the JBLs so yes, they ARE very comparable in performance.

Thanks for posting this. I think there's something wrong with the formatting on the links, but I was able to get to the subwoofer and buy it.

I see the subwoofer doesn't have any outputs. I would assume that means each speaker needs to be connected to the receiver. Is there anything I need to keep in mind in order to ensure this is compatible with my setup?

I was hoping to just pick up a sub, since mine won't power on anymore, but all my speakers are hooked up to my sub. Clearly this wouldn't just be a drop-in replacement.

It sounds like you have one of those "home theater in a box"systems that the subwoofer serves also as the amplifier to your other speakers. You would need an a/v receiver and run your speaker wiring to it

As long as there is no proprietary connection from your speakers, yes you just connect your speakers & this sub to the receiver.

Agreed! Especially when these sales go on at Harman audio. I bought the RC263 for $318 from a 3rd party seller on Amazon Friday disappointed no BF deals on Infinity and saw this after midnight. Cancelled my order on Amazon and jumped on this!

Awesome! I've been waiting months for this to come back. The last sale did not have the subwoofers on sale and that was the last part I needed. At this price, they are a steal. In for 2!

Wondering how these would stack up against some 8" Sonance MAG8Rs I put on hold at best buy. Would be 7 MAGRs to cover everything (inclusing ATMOS), plus a sub. The BF sale on the Sonance made them, basically, the same price as this set including a SUPERCUBE2000 sub - Also wondering about that sub vs. SVS SB12- NSD? Hopefully someone more knowledge can help me! Thank you.

Which would be best for surrounds? The r152's or the rs163's? Already have the R12 sub and rc263 center and adding the R253 fronts (since the 263's can't be had anymore).

I went with the 152's myself and I'm happy with them
