Klipsch RF-7 III Floorstanding Speaker - each (Cherry)
  • Despite its heavy weight, the speaker looks quite compact next to the TV.
  • Very good speakers, playing fairly bright and detail, they are not big.
  • These are REALLY big. Make sure you have a strong marriage before dropping these in the living room.
  • The speaker is bulky and heavy so you need help installing it.

What customers say about "Audio"
Klipsch RP-8000F Floorstanding Speaker (Ebony)
  • The mid and highs are beautiful. You don’t need a lot of power to drive them as they are amazingly efficient.
  • The speakers sound pretty good, cabinet seems decent quality. Sound is maybe a touch bright.
  • Big sound, very crisp, strong base even without added subwoofer. A few tweeks of the preamp and these babies did what I wanted.
  • The mid level was impressive. They are very detailed you hear everything.
  • These sound super clear and natural the best high level sound I've heard from a speaker.
Klipsch RF-7 III Floorstanding Speaker - each (Cherry)
  • These are beautiful sounding speakers- a big clear sound which I will be driving with a Crestron SWAMP 24x8.
  • I could hear every nuance of every instrument driven at 150 watts all the way down to a low volume. I was very impressed.
  • Speakers are great. The dual 10’ drivers are what I was looking for. High band and twitter is acceptable.
  • Agility is good and over sound quality are good and warm. Surprisingly sensitive for all bands even during night at whisper volume.
  • The bass is strong and powerful with the dual 10" woofers, pairing perfectly with the Klipsch RC-64 II center and the R-115SW subwoofers for well rounded bass.

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch RP-8000F Floorstanding Speaker (Ebony)
  • The Klipsch just outperforms all of them. The bass is room thumping; I do have a velodyne sub, but it’s not really necessary and I have it on minimum setting.
  • The rp 8000f’s faithfully reproduces every note. You can hear Paul Desmond’s sax and joe morellos brushes on the drums as if you were there live.
  • These speakers are exactly what I was looking for! Very musical and detailed, with the "authority" only a larger speaker can deliver - even at low volume.
  • I love the build quality and how they look. I keep the grills on; while I do like the look of the drivers, I prefer the understated "blend in" look in my living room. They use durable material.
  • The connectors in the back are a major annoyance. The indentation where the terminals are, are fairly tight and its hard to get wires fed through if you have larger hands - was very annoying.
Klipsch RF-7 III Floorstanding Speaker - each (Cherry)
  • These speakers are perfect for a Dolby Atmos, DTS-X or Auro 3D setup, to make your home theater a movie theater! Clean powerful sound. It is invigorating.
  • The looks of the copper spun woofers and grains of the wood work in black look great, further drawing attention to the impressive woofers.
  • The RF-7 III has the clear treble, the heavy and punchy bass, and above all else, the enormous sound stage and presence. The sound is very immersive and all encompassing.
  • They sounded good. Nice bass response and great imaging.
  • Incredible sound. Great bass. The horn is detailed, yet you can listen to them for long periods of time.
