    Klipsch RP-450C reviews

    Reference Premiere RP-450C Center Speaker (Piano Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected. I am always one with extremely high expectations. Sometimes my expectations are so high that I'm left a little upset by a phenomenal product. I have had my eye on the reference premiere Klipsch setup for a long time. I purchased this center along with the Rp280F and the rp160m. I spent some time dialing in the listening distances and making sure that the dB correction was evened out around my listening position. I am absolutely blown away by the sound and power these speakers deliver. As soon as budget allows I will be adding a set of rp250s'. I wish I didn't wait as long as I did to purchase. It was a very expensive upgrade but I don't regret it one bit at all. If you like to listen loud like I do and be immersed in your movies and music then don't hesitate. The only thing I will say is that I had tunnel vision on Klipsch. I liked everything about them including the beautiful copper look of the speakers, so I didn't spend any time researching any other speaker brands. If you care about bang for the buck or whatever it is that drives you then I can't give an honest answer if there is something better or not. What I can tell you is that these Klipsch's do not disappoint at all!
