    I orderd Klipsch RF3II's the other day, (1400CDN!!!) and they are still not here. My dealer told me sunday, then wednesday, and now friday! I WANT MY TOWERS!

    Thats a lot of money, (and a big deal) for someone working for $7.00/h 2 times a week!!!!

    Oh well. I tell you how I like them when I get them. Bye

    As a student, I just can't see myself spending that kind of money on Klipsch RF-3 towers. Well good luck with the hobby because it all starts here.

    Did you consider cheaper alternatives? Like Klipsch Synergy or JBL studio? With that kind of money you could get more home theater for your buck.

    Are the RF-3II's less harsh that the originals? The RF-3s seemed much more harsh than my 10.5s

    Cam, I know there are cheeper prices. But there is a problem. No places near me sell Klipsch BUT London Drugs. I paind $1398. That is AFTER taxes, so for a chain store like that I got an allright deal. Also, they do not have them in stalk, so I waited and they were orderd.
    To get a better deal, I would have to drive 500 miles, and I just finished driver's ed.
    I would not buy speakers off the net. (Not even new) When I move, (or this city gets a good audio store, I will bu new from quality stores.) Still a youngn' [​IMG] I can't ge a credit card without a credit rating, and I don't want to pay shipping.
    I could have had the original RF3's for $700. (open box) It was in bad shape, (being a floor model at a store that sells tampons 10 feet away) And The cones were all dented. I wanted the box UN-OPENED.(bad experinece with opend RB5's)
    I will go away this summer where I may buy a reciever and a center speaker. (not from a chain store)
    Other then that, Im VERY happy with these speakers. They rock, (in more ways then one) I wouldn't think of buying anything else. (well, RF7's)
    --------------
    I find the RF3's harsher then the new II's. I don't know why, but the new ones are "warm" yet still sound LIVE to me. Mabey its the monster cable, or the electronics. Or the room. (or all 3) Anyways, unless you are powering your Towers with technics or Bottem end sony, they should not be bad at all.

    Doug, I am allready on the Klipsch Forum[​IMG]
