Klipsch RF-7 II vs. Polk LSi15

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm curious which of these sound better. And in your own opinion, which you think looks better too?

Polk Audio LSi15

The Klipsch cost twice as much as the Polks. I'm betting they have more bass too with TWO 10" drivers. But what about the mids? Are the Klipsch horns overly bright? Also, why does Klipsch use the term "Reference" to describe everything from their $500 subwoofers to their $3200 a pair towers?

I think the klipsch are better looking. What sounds better is up to your ears. You'd need measurements to see if the speakers are bright.

"Reference" is the name of this product line. If you have any questions about why they chose it, why not ask Klipsch?

Reference = reference quality, so it's typically used to describe things of that quality smile.gif
