Klipsch RC-7
19 Reviews
rating  5 of 5
MSRP  800.00
Description: In conjunction with the introduction of our new Reference Series flagship floorstanding loudspeaker (RF-7), we have also introduced the RC-7, a new high performance center channel that matches the flagship model in performance, technology, materials and styling. The new RC-7 center channel also features Klipsch’s tapered array technology, which provides more consistent coverage across the listening field and improved dialogue intelligibility. <br><br> The RC-7 was designed to provide "best in class" home theater and multi-channel audio surround sound (with the matching RF-7 flagship loudspeakers, RSW-15 subwoofer and RS-7 rear channel speakers), but its striking metal drivers and real-wood enclosure also make it a desirable complement to any decor. Available in three beautiful furniture-grade veneers — black, maple or cherry — each handcrafted, real-wood finish is unique.

Bottom Line:   
After 18 months of demanding use, it just gets better with time... Ceramic metal drivers take quite a while to break in properly, so, i thought I would wait until I've had plenty of time to break in this C.C. Also the compression driven horn loaded tweeter takes almost as much break in time as does the mid/bass drivers. I have my RC-7 on top of my entertainment center which is about 5 1/2 ft. high, with a pair of RB-75's on stands at about 5 ft. to create as seemless of a soundstage as possible.
After about 4 months I decided to use the adjustable screws that angle the center down a bit to accomodate the 1/2 ft. difference in height with my RB-75's. The dialog from male voices are as realistic as if one was standing there speaking in real life. Female voices just sing with realism. Klipsch (with horn loaded tweeters) definately has built a strong customer base over the years, and once you've listened to a properly broken in RC-7 (and any of the Reference line), you will have a difficult time ever going back to anything else.
I have yet to find a C.C. that sounds this good anywhere, especially for the $$.
With a Denon avr-3805 these speakers are so easy to drive with their incredibly high efficiency rated at 98dbls.
I have changed speakers so many times over the last 20 years, I think its a fair thing to say I've got a bit of experience in this department.
At any rate, if you have the $$, and are in the market for a new center channel, buy one while you still can. It may be the last center you'll ever buy.

Unbeleivable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best center speaker I have ever owned! I went from the RC-3 to this and boy was it worth it. Vocals and bass response improved a ton-muddiness is now gone. Great value.

Bottom Line:   
When you’re at a movie theatre you ask yourself…why doesn’t my center channel sound like this…huge soundstage, very open and transparent? Some centers sacrafice woofer size and cabinet weight for cosmetic reasons, in return you have a congested sounding speaker. This was the problem with my Energy AC 300(two 5'.25" woofers)which bottomed out during the trailer for Texas Chainsaw Massacre (check it out in the special features section). The RC-7 is something to behold. This size of this thing alone is ridiculous. It weighs more than my Energy EXL 12 sub. The sound coming from this speaker doesn’t let down its physical attributes. This center was made for movies; movies that demand power output from your center. This RC-7 will completely blow you out of a 10x10 room. Road to Perdition gunfire scenes are like no other when comparing with other center channels. Live music or DTS music sounds are true to life. I'll say it again, "it was made for this".

My center is always set to Large and there isn’t any LFE it couldn’t handle yet. This center channel is unbreakable.
