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

Klipsch RC-52

 

Fantastic sound from this monster. It has a frequency range from 67Hz to 23KHz and a power rating of 125W peaking at 500W. Clean and crisp, you hear everything through this baby. It's down right the best center channel speaker I've heard.

Great frequency rangeGood power handlingFantastic sensitivity

None that I've seen or heard so far

Klipsch RC-52 II

 

I'm sure that this has a lot to do with the location that I have the speaker installed at. But it does sound a little nasal. Its on the bottom shelf, below and to the right of the screen (due to space limitations).

It's clear. Looks good with the grill off

It sounds a little nasally compared with my other speakers

Big n' Bad

 

I use this, with rb 61 fronts, rs 42 surrounds, and a BA subwoofer, in an 8x8 home theater setup, powered by a Denon 2310. It's massive, but unobtrusive, and I'd recommend a stand for alignment with the fronts. Effect has been fantastic, as it brings...

Good Power Output, Easy to Mount, Great Sound Quality, Easy Setup

A great center speaker

 

I've had the Klipsch RC52 for about a month and we are amazed at the sound quality difference it has made in our home theater system. Before I purchased the RC52 center speaker we rarely used our surround sound system because it never really seemed...

Attractive Design, Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality
