This review is from: Klipsch Reference RC-42 II Center Speaker Single
Pros: This speaker produces very clear highs and really helps enhance vocals. I use it 90% for 5.1 surround sound and 10% for music. It's crisp and clear. Shattering glass couldn't sound more real! It's true that once you hear Klipsch, you'll never change to anything else.
Other Thoughts: The room I have this speaker in is a basement that's 12ft X 25ft and it's strong enough to keep the dialogue clear and undistorted. I am running some Sony SSF-5000s (Until I can get some more Klipschs) as my mains and some 5 inch bookshelfs (also to be upgraded to Klipsch) as surrounds, all powered by a Yamaha 465 receiver (excellent as well, would definitely recommend).
