If you love the klipsch then you'd probably be disappointed with the sound of the rockets.

Todd,

What else did you audition before you decided on Klipsch? It is possible that you love them without knowing what you really prefer. But if you did a decent amount of listening before buying then I agree with Chris. The Rockets should have a very different sound...though I wouldn't go so far as to say you'd be disappointed in them. Check out www.audioenvy.com and see if anyone in your area has some for you to listen to.

I agree with Dan. If you have auditioned quite a bit and are a Klipsch fan you will probably always prefer the horn sound. I moved through several speakers over the years and while I found designs such as the rockets very nice, I always returned to horns.

To each his own in this stuff, but if your auditioning has been limited you owe it to yourself to listen to lots and to become bitterly addicted like the rest of us...
