    Great complimentary surround speakers to my front and center channel Klipsch Icon Series speakers; providing higher frequency notes in very clear and precise detail. Excellent for listening to anything from classical music to HD movie audio.

      Comments about Klipsch Reference Series RS-42 II Black Surround Speaker:

      ABT rocks! I bought these to complete my set up. I run the RF-82's up front with a RC-62 in the center. They are powered by a Pioneer 135 WPC receiver (installers edition) that should have been a Elite. I was running the Klipsch Quintet SL mini towers for surround. The only problem I have is not purchasing these a LONG time ago. Makes the quintet look silly for being in the same room. Do not second guess these if your looking for great, crisp LOUD sound! Just a direct hook up without re-calibrating my system the 42's sound 3x louder, No joke!
      Bottom line, whether you have all Klipsch or are just looking to just upgrade your rears, do not hesitate! If you don't have any Klipsch speakers yet, your missing out!
