Klipsch RF-82 Floorstanding Loudspeakers Reviewed

 

The RF-82 loudspeakers from famed manufacturer Klipsch are third in the line among their reference series, sitting below the RF-63 and the largest RF-83. The RF-82 is a compact, high performance loudspeaker that is equally adept at both home theater...

The RF-82 sounds exceptionally huge and very dynamic, and can fill even large rooms with relative ease ; The RF-82 performs optimally at very high volumes, and excels with even the most intense rock and electronic material ; The RF-82 doesn't require...

The RF-82 imposes its big, aggressive sound on everything, which overwhelms acoustic, classical, and jazz material and strips it of speed, refinement, and musicality ; The RF-82 doesn't have a very slim profile ; The RF-82's copper woofers may not...

For some, the Klipsch RF-82 will fit the bill perfectly. Many, many people play lots of rock, rap, metal, movies, games, etc., have big rooms, and are on a budget - for them, the RF-82 will represent a superb buy. You don't need anything close to a...

Klipsch RF-82 review

 

These towering speakers display plenty of muscle, but are found wanting when it comes to sonic subtlety

A huge speaker for the cash ; forthcoming sound ; hefty bass delivery

Lack subtlety ; hint of hardness in the midrange and treble ; bass notes could have greater precision

A big, boisterous speaker that needs to show a bit more restraint to compete with the class-leaders

Klipsch RF-82 Floor Standing Speaker

 

Obviously I'm going to have nothing but praise for these bad boys, I own them...lol. They are very efficient speakers and as such require very little power to run. The horn loaded tweeter is a love em' or hate em' sound but I personally love them....

Very Efficient, Requires Very Little Power, Sexy, Horn Loaded Tweeters, Dialog Is Clear And Accurate, Dual 8" Woofers, Decent Bass, Speakers Come With Feet, Magnetic Speaker Grille

Heavy And Large Foot Print, Requires Space

Klipsch RF-82 Floor Standing Speaker

 

Bought these for the home theater and music. Within hours of hooking everything up I was enjoying the type of sound that I had missed since selling my La Scalla's in Germany. Being able to hear fingers moving on the strings of guitar riffs on a Clapton...

Larger than life sound with crisp highs which can be a little bright along with great lows

Horns are a little bright until broken in

Bought these for the L/R Mains on my Home Theater. They are simply AMAZING! For music they are also very good. Efficient and easy on the ears. Just like all Klipsch speakers, they need clean power. They will show the weakness in any system. I put them...

Product Specifications

Exclusive Tractrix Horns have always been the key component of this critically acclaimed series. In the RF-82, this technology has been refined to include improved throat geometry for a more genuine, lifelike sound. Behind the horn lies a 1-inch titanium tweeter with a large ceramic motor structure to provide a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power. The RF-82 employs dual 8-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. The RF-82's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound and twin rear-firing ports to eliminate turbulence noise. Increased baffle ribbing in the lower panel and around the horn mouth dramatically improve acoustics across the sonic range. For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossover on the RF-82 features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring.
