    Default Klipsch's new line up


    Starting September 2010, Klipsch will be dispatching their new speakers line up that marks the official worldwide comeback of their fabled RF-7: the RF-7 II.

    Prior to hitting mark II, the RF-7s had already made a comeback in a sexy dark cherry finish for the North American market alone. They were the same as the original RF-7s in terms of specifications and internal components with the exception of internal wiring, which used to be provided by Monster Cable until Klipsch moved away from them. The RF-7 IIs, on the other hand, have new components and slightly different specifications:

    • Frequency response went from 32Hz-20Khz to 30Hz-24Khz
    • Crossover frequency went down from 2200Hz to 1200Hz
    • Sensitivity went down from 102db to 101db @ 2.83V / 1m


    A new design is also featured, and available in either black or cherry. They are manufactured in Hope, Arkansas just like their elder kin. Personally, I'm not a fan of the new design but I wouldn't mind performing a direct comparison to the older model to spot the sonic differences.

    The RC-64 center channel also received an update, this time with the new design looking sexier than the older (imho). Its compression driver was changed to match the RF-7 IIs'. Pictures and specifications can be found here.

    All other speakers from the previous line up have been refreshed and hit mark II, except for the RF-83s (replaced by the aforementioned RF-7 II) and the RF-63s.

    The new Klipsch line up is due out next month, so I'm afraid there aren't many pics of it around apart from those on Klipsch's website

    Yeah, the silver looks pretty sweet. Somehow - if I had those RF7 II's, I think I could live with the gold. I bet they sound awesome.
