Bottom Line:   
Note price above is in New Zealand dollars. I bought a cheaper centre speaker from Axtent. Took it home and tried it out and was not impressed. Took it back for an exchange and must have tried at least twelve speakers before settling on this one. It was by far the best within my budget. Although at the top end of what I wanted to pay I thought there is no point buying something you are not happy with. I am really pleased with this purchase

Bottom Line:   
I bought this at the local Good Will. I was mostly surprised to see a name brand speaker there... Anyhow, I bought this unit to replace a Wharfedale Emmerald Centre speaker that moved out to my new recording studio I am still building. The speaker was pretty well beat up, but it would be going behind a cloth curtain, so looks did not matter. It is a big and heavy unit, but it weighed about the same as the smaller Wharfedale it replaced. I use PA speakers on a routine basis, running sound for different events and local bands, so I know the benefits of having a horn loaded HF driver. Those benefits carry through to home audio too it would seem. The Klipsch seems to blend well with the speakers I am currently using as mains (Wharfedale Diamond 7.2 Anneversary edition), and the shielding on the magnets is good enough not to distort/discolor my very sensitive 36" Zenith/Intq HDTV. Overall, a good replacement for the Wharfedale.

This center really makes you enjoy movies, after listen to lots of brands in different hifi audio stores, I finally came to the RC3. The sounds of the guns in "road to perdition" sounded like if they wher fired inside my house.

this center channel rocks, there is only realy a few things that i can say, but they will sum it all up. basicall this speaker makes your whole movie watching experiance amazingly better, the highs are so crisp, and clean, and the base response is great, although thats not really what a center channel is know to do.

Bottom Line:   
After trying several other brands, I settled on Klipsch again. I had an old Klipsh rebel as my center speaker (still have the rebels for my surronds). I added my older Dahlquist speakers on an Adcom Amp for my fronts but wanted more sound from my center. My problem was trying to match up the center with my Dahlquists. Nothing matches up very well but the Klipsch at least doesn't have the boxy sound the Infinity Alpha had and it had a warmer, richer sound than the Boston did.
Overall it sounds great with good bass and clear vocals.
