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...

Excellent value!

 

As a tube amp designer\/builder who uses near-field listening to "voice" amplifiers, I purchased these as replacements for the previously used RF-15s which are one of the best kept "secrets" which Klipsch has developed. Right out of the box, the...

Great Sound Quality

They just don't know when enough is enough!!

 

You must connect these to a clean amplifier to get the sound the designers intended. Don't whine and put less than 5 eggs cause you skimped on the amp!! These speakers rock hard!!!

For 4 years I have these speakers bi-amped connected to a VSX-84 Elite receiver. They are hands down the sweetspot of the Klipsch RF lineup. Excellent bass, Excellent mids and highend. Imaging is also excellent. U are not going to find a better speaker...

Heavy....Very heavy

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.
