Spend the money!

 

ABT rocks! I bought these to complete my set up. I run the RF-82's up front with a RC-62 in the center. They are powered by a Pioneer 135 WPC receiver (installers edition) that should have been a Elite. I was running the Klipsch Quintet SL mini towers...

Klipsch RS-42

 

Reviewing these speakers is actually more difficult than I thought it would be because I've never heard anything but test signals and surround tracks on them. Since I've never auditioned them as "mains" I'm afraid my review will be sparse.

Product Specifications

Delivering detailed and lifelike performances, the Reference Series RS-42 brings a new dimension of reality and convenience to the world of surround sound. Offering superior technology and elegant design at an enticing price, this surround speaker lets you experience the full impact of high-performance special effects. Exclusive Tractrix Horns have always been the key component of the Reference Series. In the RS-42, this technology has been refined to include improved throat geometry for a more genuine, lifelike sound. Behind the speaker's dual horns lie 1-inch titanium tweeters with powerful neodymium magnet motor structures to provide a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless dynamics. The RS-42 employs dual 4-inch woofers for a solid bass foundation. These Cerametallic woofers with inverted copper dust caps exhibit a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and superb damping characteristics. Klipsch Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) provides crystal-clear sonic detail even in listening areas with less than ideal configurations. The Tractrix Horns deliver a 90-degree wide by 60-degree high dispersion pattern. By aligning two horns at 90-degrees with respect to each other, WDST smoothly covers a 180-degree horizontal arc. In other words, the surround sound is pointed at you no matter where you are seated. While increased baffle ribbing around the horn mouth dramatically improves acoustics across the sonic range, the crossover utilizes Klipsch custom internal wiring and the finest components to provide signal purity and perfect driver integration. The RS-42 also features side-firing ports to eliminate turbulence noise and back-panel keyholes and
