Very Pleased


Had this speaker for a few months now and am completely pleased and satisfied. This was a replacement for an Athena center channel speaker. Very nice upgrade!

Clean, clear sound! Looks good too

Not Surprised. It's KLIPSCH


Don't think twice. It's Klipsch Reference. I GUARANTEE you will have your expectations met, and beaten.

Distortion free, clean at full power on my Pioneer VSX-1121-K ; It has amazing depth, separation. Gorgeous design without the magnetic front mesh grill

Not a single CON for this hardcore, audiophile techie

Very Good Center Speaker


I used 14 gauge speaker wire connected to Onkyo 609 receiver.

Very clean sound. This speaker flat out blows away my old center speaker. All these years I've been missing out on truly great sound. Very pleased that I bought this one

Excelent center, but pricey!!


There are many good center speakers out there. If you could, do a side-by-side comparision so you can make an informative decision. I thought I had a very good center channel until I replaced it with the RC-52. Now I have an used "very good" center...

Just looking at the speaker without even listening to it (Klipsch built quality shows), you could tell this center speaker is very special, it is impressive in appearance. Its performance is equaly impressive, my first impression was how crystal clear,...

Expensive. It's up to you to decide if it worths your hard earn cash. For me, it's worths every pennies. (If money is no object, you might want to look at the RC-64 II)

Excellent Center Speaker, the best I ever owned !!!


I would recommended this center speaker to anybody. I have 2 x RS 42 II for Surround, RC 52 II center and the Klipsch VF-36 Floorstanding Speakers hooked up to the Onkyo SX607 at 105 watts per channel and bi-amp for the Floorstanding and a 10inch...

Very high quality center speaker ; Very high quality material, look and feel ; Excellent sound, definitely very loud powered by the Onkyo SX607 receiver running at 105Watts or 90Watts

No Cons

Great price, nice bass, cloudy midrange


I bought this speaker to replace an old and fairly small but expensive M&K speaker. I was impressed by the price and size of this larger speaker. I'm happy with the bass, which is much richer and fuller than my old speaker; setup is easy; the speaker...

Clear and Realistic


The Klipsch RC-52 produces realistic-sounding dialog that is crisp and clear without sounding harsh. With its dual 6.5 inch drivers, it has the power to deliver the deeper tones of a human voice without over-emphasizing midrange like a lot of center...

Speakers? What Speakers?


�-This is a review of the RF52 and RC52. They work as a set.�- Many long years ago �- in a galaxy far, far away? �- I was an avid audiophile. Then, gradually other life pressures began to take priority and my interests waned and I ended up with simple...
