Over the past year I have been though numerous brands of speakers, everything from very nice bose 10.2 series 2's to these Klipsch rf-7s. WOW! The rf-7s blow every other speaker I have ever heard completely out of the water, especially at above theater...

I purchased my Klipsch Rf-7's from EBay after reading many reviews from this and other sites. Normally, I would not have made such a weighty purchase that way. Not so much to do with money, more the complication attending reselling and shipping if not...

Product Specifications

The RF-7 Reference Series flagship loudspeaker was designed to provide the highest level of two-channel and multi-channel audio as well as home theater surround sound (with the matching RC-7 center channel, RSW-15 subwoofer and RS-7 rear channel speakers), but its striking metal drivers and real-wood enclosure also make it a desirable complement to any decor. Available in three beautiful furniture-grade veneers - black, maple or cherry - each handcrafted, real-wood finish is unique. The RF-7 utilizes a combination of professional grade materials and advanced horn technology for a smooth response and consistent coverage pattern. The new Reference Series flagship's 1.75" titanium dome compression driver is coupled to an 8" square Tractrix Horn and powered by an unusually large, video-shielded 22oz. magnet. This combination offers the speed and accuracy needed to deliver clear, accurate, non-fatiguing high frequencies and upper midrange frequencies at any volume level. This design approach is so efficient that it virtually eliminates the most common cause of driver failure - excessive energy. The two 10" Cerametallic woofer cones are lighter, stronger and better damped than commonly used cone materials. Cerametallic is a specially treated aluminum that has been anodized, or electro-chemically transformed into ceramic on both outer surfaces. Similar to the motor of the large compression driver, powerful, video-shielded 50oz. magnets drive these woofers, allowing for precise signal tracking without blurring the sound. Aesthetically, the unmistakable copper color of the Cerametallic cones gives the RF-7 its distinctive Klipsch Reference look. The RF-7's cast-aluminum woofer frames, which have high impact tolerance to stabilize the woofer motors and guarantee their critical alignment, are designed to be stronger and more functional than typical driver "baskets", and actually contribute to the overall enhanced performance. These non-magnetic woofer baskets eliminate any loss of magnetic energy needed for output and dynamic headroom. And the vented pole piece cools the motor and voice coil to enhance reliability. The high quality crossover networks of the RF-7 are carefully designed for a seamless blend between the lower midrange and upper bass frequencies. They are wired exclusively with custom manufactured Z-Series Monster Cable, as are the external bi-wire jumpers of the newly developed circular input cup on the loudspeaker's exterior. This materials upgrade (which is part of a strategic alliance with Monster Cable that will place this premium brand wire in all Klipsch Reference Series loudspeakers) ensures top-of-the-line connection from the electronics all the way through to the voice coil of each Klipsch audio system. The Z-Series Monster Cable comes in three frequency specific designs for enhanced definition and detail. Klipsch is the first and only manufacturer to have made a performance commitment to use Monster Cable in a complete line of products. Two large tuned ports on the RF-7 reduce distortion and allow for better dynamics. Their larger size, inner and outer flaring, and precise tuning increase efficiency and bass response, which allows for more output with less distortion. Dual windowpane braces are an enclosure feature that contributes to the RF-7's structural rigidity and resonance control. Although many people will choose to show off the copper-colored Cerametallic cones, each RF-7 comes with a curved, cloth-covered, stand-off grille. This distinguished "floating grille" creates a physical barrier, protecting the drivers from damage and actually works to minimize sonic reflections. A spiked or protective tipped, stabilizing outrigger foot complements the enclosure's computer-optimized bracing, which minimizes cabinet vibration and reduces unwanted coloration.
