These speakers are a thing of beauty. I had to ditch my old B&W speakers because they were so large and I was upgrading my TV from 46" to 55" and I needed more room. With a width of only 6", these things not only look and sound great but save a lot of room with the thin design. I did a lot of research, and these seemed to be the best floor standing speakers for the size. They work well with banana plugs or straight wire.

Already own rf-82's in a home theater suite and picked up rf-42's for 1/2 off. Was expecting the Klipsch "sound" for mids and highs but wasn't expecting 2 4.5 inch woofers to be this powerful! I'm running them with an old Technics receiver from the mid 80's at 65 watts/channel with just a cd player in the living room. I thought for sure I was going to have to pick up a new receiver and subwoofer to get any real bass but I was mistaken. The sub would be nice but now just an afterthought. You just need to give them some room behind for the ports to work properly. I have them about 18 inches from the wall and get plenty of nice bass, you can really feel the air from the port when you push them a bit. Overall I will definately reccommend these.....especially if space is an issue.

I have used Klipsch speakers for a few years now, these speakers do not disappoint. Great highs, good lows, speakers are attractive... One speaker arrived missing parts and Amazon was quick to send out a new one overnight in return for the broken speaker. These speakers are superb, don't pay the premium for Bose.

Awesome speakers!! I did about a month of research on floor standing before I pulled the trigger on a pair. sold my vintage technics which were still working great, however they were very large as most high end vintage speakers are.So decided I would go for a modern smaller cabinet floor stander. Was a bit concerned with the size of woofers used in today's cabinets. Went into local Frys electronics to demo a pair of these and several others in much lower price point (which I didn't think would make a difference in quality) which was very wrong tried jbl pair for 250, pioneer at same price point, even Polk audio at the same price point of the ref 42. The 42s blew them all away by a long shot, the clarity on these are amazing. I use them a lot for 7.1 theater setup but also listen to alot of different types of music, and all sound very good. Hearing detailed sounds in music and movies that I haven't heard before. However I didn't purchase these here. I wanted to leave a review on these for others to see to cut the time down on the research, If you are on a budget you should wait for a sale or save up for these.In the 200 to 400 a pair range these are REALLY the best choice. I'm very glad I kicked my budget up from 250 to 400 because trust me it makes a world of difference. If you want good quality f.s. speakers with the best highs mids and actually very good lows, this is really the best way to go.

I purchased the RF 42's for my surround system, they are now the front L & R and work great with my Denon AVR, this was a complete Surround System over haul, added in the Klipsch RC 42 center, the Klipsch rear L & R RS 42's, the two 8" Klipsch Jamo Sub-woofers, the front height L & R Klipsch Synergy 10's. I have the Surround Systems set up for 7.1 and now when you watch movies or regular TV in Dolby or PL II you catch so much detail in the surround sound which I was missing without this set up. Awesome sound reproduction...

Although I consider myself a lover of fine music quality, an audiophile I am not. These speakers were necessary for me as they were very thin. We don't have much room in our home and by replacing some old sony floor standing speakers we were able to fit more furniture agains the wall (my wife was happy). These things sound great and they look fantastic. I'm a firm believer that bigger is better with sound equipment, but if you don't have space but don't want to sacrifice sound quality, these are a great option.

Outstanding value for money. I am driving these with a hybrid tube amp from China. The amp gets its line signal from a pro-ject tube pre-amp coming from a pro-ject RPM 3 turntable. Whilst I am not an audio expert the output is fantastic.

I listened to a number of types of music from both analogue and digital sources and love the high end on these. The vocals sound great. For the size the bass is also very impressive. I have separate speakers for my 7.1 movie watching with a dedicated sub.

Packing was great and instructions for setup were very clear, not that speakers are complicated but its a nice touch when opening the box to have everything clearly laid out for you.

Finally they look very smart in my living room (see photos).

I love these speakers. I am glad that I went this route instead of with some bookshelf speakers. Their footprint is comparable to very small bookshelves on speaker stands, but with the dual woofer, you get some great midrange bass. That being said, don't think that these will blow your doors off with bass. I paired them with an rc52 center and a 12" klipsch sub, and it sounds great. I am going to finish up the living room with some in ceiling klipsch 6.5" rears. I would definitely get these if you have the space and enjoy a little more treble in your sound before they are sold out (discontinued model).
