    I have Klipsch Reference Series speaker, including RS-3 as my surround speaker, but I've been considering upgrading to the KLIPSCH RS-7 surrounds. Will this be a significant upgrade?
    Many thanks!

    I was going to go with the RF7, RC7, RS7 but it was a bit over my budget. I had to settle for the RF3-II, RC3-II, and RS3-II's along with a 16-46PC. [​IMG]

    Matt, the receiver I have will be my only crossover. My main concern with the RS-7s is how well they will match with the RF-3s.
    I looked on the Klipsch website and it says that the RS-7s match up with the other "7" series, it doesn't say that it matches with the "3" series.
    Should I be concerned with this?

    You will not have matching timbre when mixing the 7 & 3 series.

    That's what I was afraid of, John. I found a pair of RS-7s for almost half of what they retail and I was going to purchase them, but not if the timbre doesn't match. There is no use.
    Thanks for the info.
