    Thanks for the info. I should go buy it. What part of the refrence seris did they do?

    ---------

    I looked at your site, awsome system. How do the Kenwood subs do for you? Klipsch RB5's are some of the BEST speakers!

    What did they say about it? +ve or -ve?

    Was it the RF-3 II package?

    I'm considering this package vs an Axiom M60 package as we speak to pair with my SVS setup ...

    did TN measure a rsw series sub?

    How did it do 25-63hz and at 20/25hz?

    Thanks()My issues seem to be delivered a week later than most.

    Yeah TV - I just gote one in the mail a few weeks ago - and it doesn't have the Klipsch review in it. I am not even done reading that one and a new one comes out? It seems that sometimes there are big delays between when I get my mags and when they come out.

    I am interested to see how the Klipsch system does. I have the RB-5's as well - and I love them. So Joel, tell us - what was reviewed and what did they think?

    I think it was the refrence 7. Still, a good reflection of all Klipsch refrence series speakers.

    Tom you're not alone, all my other mags come before they are in the store. Yet S&V is always late.[​IMG]
    Do you ever go home? Or do you have a cot setup in the back of the shop?[​IMG]

    Friend said the rsw15 hit 112.5dB 25-63hz.
    All hail the new king...[​IMG]
    Just goes to show you what can happen when a hard core bass freak does the R/D on the sub for the machine...Congrats to Deon...very few harder working men in the business.

    How much does the rsw15 run? I guess it's a victory if it goes for about $1000. If it's $2000+ then who cares [​IMG]

    I think it retails for $1800, being so new...and back ordered from what I hear...it might be tough getting much of a discount from the local dealer.
    Still a nice unit though...and high time Klipsch has a representative woof to go with their ultra-dynamic speakers.
    A new 25-31PCi might be close...and you can see how the Ultra compares directly to the rsw15 at the www.hometheaterhifi.com showdown...

    In the secrets test:

    RSW15 does 93db @20hz

    dual SVS ultras [email protected]

    So the 25-65hz might be 112db but how much of that is in the really important 20-30hz range? Sounds more like the typical 30-50hz boomers to me.

    Ned, 112db from 25-65hz doesn't exactly make it a boomer?

    Well the Secrets' review paints a totally differen picture. 112db average from 25-65 is just that, an average. We need more info.

    The TN review will have more info...but I probably won't get my issue for a while yet...does anyone have it?(TN usually gives a 16/20/25hz max figure too....depending on the extension of the unit).
