    Default Paradigm Monitor 9


    Can you all assist with reviews on these? Also, will they work with the Klipsch system?

    Also, I saw some PSB speakers that resemble the Klispch ones already owned ..... Will they work as well?

    Also what version of the monitor 9's. It is tough to mix and match speakers if the timbre doesn't match then they just suffer in terms of sound quality. You can get away with having a matching front sound stage, and use another brand for the rears. Klipsch is one of the toughest to mix and match with do to the horn loaded tweeters.

    I was going to say the same. Paradigm speakers have a soft dome tweeter, so I can tell you straight they won't sound anything like Klipsch. I'm a fan of monobrand multichannel setups, but even if you decided to go with differently branded rears I'd still avoid mixing Klipsch with others. Their sound is too peculiar and easily discernable to match seamlessly with that of other brands. Been there, done that. Even when used as rears, they won't fit with speakers that don't sound alike.

    I think some of Paradigm's newer models use hard dome tweeters, but the point about Klipsches stands, regardless. When you buy into Klipsch, you buy into a distinctive house sound. It's hard to match with anything else.

    If you can get the Paradigms cheap enough that you could resell them without taking a loss, or you can easily return them, I say go for it. With room interactions and whatnot, you never know; it might work.

    Agreed.

    Paradigm used a titanium tweeter like Klipsch just not horn loaded. I thought the monitor series sounded quite a but like Klipsch. At least as far as brightness. Just didn't have that live sound the Klipsch offers.
    I own some stuff.

    Ahhh ... Sorry guys ... I dunno where to look on the Klispch to see what kind/model it is... The two towers have two speakers and a 'horn' the sub is about 12-14 inches


    I was also looking at some PSB's ... Saw two towers for 1100

    The receiver I have is a JVC (kinda cheap but, works ... So I'm not giving it any hell)

    Try http://imageshack.us/ to upload your pics, then post a thumbnail here (or the full picture, if you'd rather - I usually go with thumbnails that link to the bigger picture for the sake of convenience)

    Look like active speakers. I don't know them, but maybe we'll have more luck on the Klipsch forums ;-)

    Ok the towers are Klipsch RF7 BLACK classic speakers... I'm still searching for the type of sub.

    Are you sure about the RF-7? I used to own them and the back of the speaker looked nothing like in your pics...

    Anyway, as suggested on the Klipsch boards, there should be a tag on the upper portion of the back of them telling you exactly ;-)

    I realize now that's the back of your sub I was looking at. My bad. Then it is quite likely that those are indeed a pair of RF-7s.

    Check out the sticker on the lower right corner on the back of your sub, it should tell you the model name.

    Trent, the living room is rather large (at least 20x40) with hardwood floors and poplar wood walls. There's a lot of 'echo' in there. I want to achieve the same kind of sound as the Klipsch has without paying a fortune .. LOL!!

    When I get a chance afterwhile, I'll look at the tags again. All I saw was the logo for the most part. :D Thanks Ev!!
