    I'm selling my KSB 3.1s soon and upgrading one of these. I can get them for about the same price off of ebay and ubid...about $600-620 delivered. The specs seem to be about the same, except that the KLF-10s produce deeper bass from what I can tell. I figured that the KLF-10s would be better since they were a more upscale/more expensive model and are bigger, but then again the RF-3s are newer and seem to use higher quality materials so having had no experience with either I'm not sure.
    So...any opinions?

    Having sold both and having listen to them extensively, I must say that the rf3's are a bit smoother and less "edgy". the legends do have a bit more impact though. O.K.,I'LL TAKE A STAND AND SAY RF3S!

    As a proud owner of RF-3's, I will be biased and say the Klipsch. I listened to a lot of speakers before deciding on these and in the long run, I just love the sound of Klipsch and horn tweeters. [​IMG]

    That's the way to avoid controversy! Say you prefer the Klipsch. Now you can say you were on the "winning" team ,whichever speakers he buys!

    Thanks a lot Mathew, I'll take that into consideration. Hopefully I can get a few more opinions before I make a decision though...
    Dean...I'm in Southwest Ind. I'm living in Terre Haute right now because I'm going to ISU, but I'm from Brazil. Not many people know where that is though, it is pretty small (maybe 8,000 people). It is about 20-25 minutes southwest of TH.

    Hi Tyler --
    Where in Terre Haute are you purchasing your speakers? I had a friend who lived there.

    I'm planning on buying them through ebay actually. I don't even know if there is a place in Terre Haute that sells Klipsch, but even if there were ebay is a lot cheaper. I just hope I don't run into any problems with the warranty if something would break though...

    Hi Tyler --
    Yeah, that's what I thought. My friend had mentioned that he was really frustrated living there, because he had to drive X miles to Y town to hear Z peice. I'm sorry that you won't have an opportunity to demo! Best of luck!

    Does everyone in Indiana own Klipsch?
    I vote for the RF-3s too. I've got two sets of them and love them (indy/valpo)

    One more for the RF-3. I've had mine now for almost a year. You might also want to audition the RF-5 or -7.

    My friend, who lives just south of Terre Haute, has RF-3's and loves them. He bought them at the Sound Connection in Terre Haute, so you can go there and hear them for yourself! The Sound Connection is in the strip mall by the Olive Garden...
    You might want to consider the KLF-20 or 30 if you have the space. They've been selling 'em cheap on UBID. Then you'd get the horn mid driver for some 3-way action...

    I was browsing Onecall's site a few weeks ago and noticed they had some really good prices on the KLF's. I think the 20's were around $350 each and the 30's were maybe $420 each. Something like that......
