Klipsch Reference Premiere 7.2 Surround Sound System – Review

Klipsch’s Reference Premiere system aims to deliver some serious bang for your buck. The technology behind some of its ultra-high-end speakers has trickled down to the Reference Premiere series, offering the company’s best sound for the dollar yet. The over-the-top system featured here runs $5500, and that includes towers in the rear surround position, which is completely unnecessary (but, hey, we were really going for it here!)

We used the Klipsch RP-280F ($579/each) for the front left/right and rear surround channels, with dual 8-inch drivers and a 1-inch Tractrix Horn tweeter in each. For the center channel, we got the big boy: an RP-450C with four 5.25-inch drivers and 1-inch horn tweeter. The side surround channels were held down by the RP-250S, with dual 5.25-inch drivers and 1-inch tweeters each. And finally, LFE information was belted out by two gargantuan R-115SW subwoofers, with 15-inch drivers and 800-watts of power each. Total system weight- 480 pounds. Total system cost- $5500

Jose Da-Bodacious says:

What’s your opinion about the following as a start up system used for both the TV and just playing everyday music. I was tossing around this combination. A Yamaha TRS-7850 with the Klipsch R15M, RP-440- C and the R120SW. I’m looking for clarity so I can actually hear clearly what is being said on the 4K TV everyday satellite broadcast. It’s a toss up between the R15M and the R51M. What is your opinion and why?.

I had 5.1 at a time.. It is taking allot of space it looks ugly, and it is a very annoying thing to have if you have nice furniture, flowers and stuff that your speakers will block. And seriously who in a normal home would put chairs like that?
