Our take on the Klipsch Reference RC-62 II

by Kristen Schaub
Klipsch

Your home theater's most important speaker

The center channel speaker is the workhorse in a home theater system. It has to reproduce clear dialogue and special effects that keep your eyes and ears glued to the movie action. A high-quality center speaker is a great investment for any surround sound setup. Try to choose one that's as closely matched as possible to your front right and left speakers, so that as sound moves across the front stage, it stays seamlessly realistic.

Realistic home theater sound starts with the center channel

Klipsch's RC-62 II delivers all the subtleties and dynamics required for a riveting home theater experience. Using patented Klipsch speaker technology, it fleshes out the front soundstage, ensuring that you hear every word, every detail of your favorite movies. Whether you place this speaker above or below your TV's screen, you can use the included feet to tilt and aim the speaker precisely at your listening position for the best possible sound.

Horn technology for "front row" sound

All Reference Series II speakers feature a redesigned version of Klipsch's famous horn-loaded tweeter. Because high-frequency sounds are more directional than bass frequencies, it's especially important to target them right toward your ears. Klipsch places their titanium tweeter inside a flared opening, known as a "horn," which disperses the highs evenly across your listening area in a 90°-wide, 60°-high pattern. With their Series II speakers, Klipsch has redesigned the shape and slope of their famous horn enclosure, so your movie soundtracks and music will sound more "open," with improved dynamics and efficiency. All in all, you can count on powerful, "front row" sound that's crystal-clear at all volume levels.

Grille off

High-tech driver design

The RC-62 II also uses newly machined, light-yet-rigid Cerametallic woofers that produce smoother mids and tighter bass. The specially treated aluminum in the cones helps to dampen unwanted vibrations and reduce distortion, while an integrated dustcap gives them a cleaner look and adds stability. And the rigid, braced cabinet comes in a handsome woodgrain vinyl finish.

Check out the rest of our Klipsch lineup to build a complete Reference Series II home theater system. And don't forget to add a Klipsch subwoofer for high-impact bass.

Driver Technology

Highly-Efficient Design: The Klipsch RC-62 II utilizes a highly efficient design to produce more output using less power & energy for louder sound with less distortion. The RC-62 II is able to fill larger rooms with outstanding, accurate, non-fatiguing sound that you can listen to for hours.

Tractrix Horn Tweeter: The RC-62 II features an exclusive Tractrix Horn which provides a more genuine, lifelike sound. In addition, behind each horn lies a 1.0-inch titanium tweeter with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound. The Tractrix Horn delivers a 90-degree wide by 60-degree high dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.

Cerametallic Woofer: The dual 6.5-inch woofers of the RC-62 II center channel loudspeaker features Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic material. Made with an anodized aluminum, this cone is strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts its inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range The 6.5-inch woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.

Crossover Network: The Klipsch RC-62 II's crossover network is constructed using extremely high-quality components including top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an air-core inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration. The speaker's enhanced crossover frequencies offer smoother on-axis and off-axis integration.

Enclosure Design

Bass Reflex Enclosure: The dual 6.5-inch Cerametallic cone woofers and 1-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver are mounted in a bass reflex enclosure which features two front-firing ports. The twin front-firing ports eliminate turbulence noise, while increased baffle ribbing around the horn mouth and woofers dramatically improves acoustics across the sonic range. The bass reflex enclosure features a MDF cabinet finished with a Black Ash wood-grain vinyl and an aluminum front baffle. The RC-62 II's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound.

Magnetic Grille: The center channel loudspeaker features a removable magnetic grille which easily snaps into place over its cast-aluminum front baffle. The speaker can be used with or without its grille in place.

Connections

Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference Series RC-62 II is equipped with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.

Mounting Options

Magnetically Shielded: The Klipsch RC-62 II center channel loudspeaker is magnetically shielded to prevent video interference.

Placement: The RC-62 II should be centered directly above or below your video screen. If necessary, you can place the speaker on an optional floor stand in front of and below the screen that elevates it to the correct height. Ideally, however, the speaker's front baffle should be flush with the front of the screen.

Rubber Feet: The center channel speaker comes with six self-adhesive rubber feet to secure the speaker in place and prevent any damage to your stand's or shelf's surface.

Note: The rubber feet add approximately 0.3125" to the height of each speaker.

Adjustable Angle: If the center speaker is well above or below the ear height of seated listeners, you can improve performance by angling the center channel slightly to compensate. Included with the speaker is an adjustable foot that you can screw into one of the two threaded inserts on the bottom of the cabinet. To tilt the speaker down, install the foot in the insert near the back of the cabinet; to tilt the speaker up, install the foot in the insert near the front of the cabinet.

I have been through a ton of center channels...And I must say that after testing out several, this is a fantastic LARGE center speaker...This is where all the voices have been...I have upgraded from the Bose Acoustimass system (which is a joke compared to the Klipsch separates I just installed. Great speaker, great presence, and a fantastic company to buy from. Everything was top notch.
Pros:
Sound depth is fantastic. From low to high...This speaker Rocks.

Last Center Channel You'll Need

Written By JacobJ, Clifton, VA on Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Klipsch Reference RC-62-II replaced an old Infinity center channel I had for a number of years. I had always had issues with vocals sounding light and muffled on movie and TV playback. I finally decided to replace the Infinity model with the Reference RC-62 as I already had Klipsch Reference floor standing speakers with my main setup. I could not be happier with the RC-62. The minute I plugged in the speaker and turned on the receiver the sound was fantastic and almost blew me off the couch. I had not adjusted the volume level from the last time I had watched TV with the old Infinity attached. The sensitivity from the horn shaped Klipsch cannot be beat. I have never had any complaints with any of my Klipsch products and this one is no different. The price may seem slightly high compared to other low end models but you are paying for a fantastic product which will last a lifetime with Klipsch.
Pros:
Vocals are crisp and easily audible even over loud background from movie soundtracks Sensitivity from horn shaped Klipsch tweeters is unmatched
Cons:
Speaker is heavy so be sure you are supporting it correctly Old light speaker stands may not support the girth from the RC-62

Klipsch Reference RC-62 II

Written By mns3dhm, Bedford, TX on Friday, July 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased the Klipsch RC 62 as the center channel in a Klipsch home theater setup. The speaker has a very high sensitivity rating so it can produce theater like volume levels with relatively little amplification. This is an important consideration with most home theater receivers. The RC 62 reproduces dialogue clearly and intelligibly and that is the one thing that I really care about with a center channel. The speaker also integrates well with the matching Klipsch floorstanding and bookshelf speakers in the Reference line.
Pros:
Can achieve theater like volumes with relatively little amplification Reproduces dialogue clearly
Cons:
The speaker comes with 'an adjustable foot' that allows you to angle the speaker up or down if need be (for placements below or above the screen). It's a good idea but terribly executed. You would be MUCH better off using Sorbothane bumpers to raise or lower the speaker angle.

Team Player

Written By Chris, Oklahoma on Sunday, June 29, 2014
 
Have refurbished some older KG-4 Klipsch speakers - replaced crossovers and upgraded to titanium domes on horns. Anyway, they can handle 200W and peak at 500W - not that they ever need that kind of power with their high efficiency. Have always had a Boston center channel and thought I should replace it with a Klipsch center channel when I had the chance. Bought the RC-62 II as its performance matched the large KG-4s. What I didn't expect was how well the 62 meshed with the KG-4s. Now on a good Blue Ray master track the front three speakers work ridiculously well together. You really don't notice the speaker location anymore. Couldn't be more happier with this 30lb beast - also like the little pole on the back that allows you to raise the back end of the center speaker to aim it down a bit. Wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend this speaker. I think the smaller Klipsch centers would be overwhelmed and frankly I do not have the budget for the bigger $1400 version. Also, although usually do everything via UPS and online - I was passing through Charlottesville on vacation and was able to visit the mecca - Crutchfield Store - very impressed and wishing we had one here. Fit the speaker in the back of the Subaru and drove couple thousand miles pretending to be UPS :)
Pros:
Efficient compression horn driver and two stout 6.5 woofers. Heavy box with no noticeable resonation from speakers. Appears to handle large amounts of power effortlessly. Nice muted look with grill - does not attract attention to itself.
Cons:
None

You just don't know what your missing with a big box surround sound system. I can actually have brilliant action sequences while still having audible dialogue. Along with my floor speakers and new surrounds, all I have to say is...OMG!

Clear highs and brilliant dialogue.
Cons:
ZERO

Great product!! This center channel speaker greatly enhanced the overall effect of my 7.1 system compared to the powered Vizio sound bar (being used as center channel) i replaced. Dialog from my movies are much louder and clearer now with this product.
Pros:
Solid product supporting a good range of frequencies for a center channel speaker.
Cons:
None.

This is One Serious Center

Written By Mr Picklechip, Motor City on Sunday, May 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am in the process of upgrading my HTS and knew I was going to go with the Reference series (I was very pleased with my decade plus old Synergy's). Plus, with the excellent pricing on the cherry finish I was able to 'upgrade' and bust the Rf 62 II over what my wallet said I could afford with the RF 52 II.

My out of the box impressions were 'the finish is really nice' and 'wow, this speaker is bigger than even really large bookshelf speakers!'. Once I hooked this bad boy up to my new receiver and RF 82 II's (cherry finish as well), I knew I had made a good choice. Very crisp reproduction of voice and room filling dialogue proved to me that my Synergy center just wasn't cutting it any more. As a matter of fact, the sound was so good with my new audio setup it actually made my 61' DLP seem small...and I had to upgrade my TV to match my new sound system...what a shame ;)
Pros:
Trademark Klipsch clarity Definitely fills my room so much better than my old Synergy The cherry finish is really much nicer looking in person than the pic Special price allowed me to 'upgrade' from what I had originally planned on buying
Cons:
Made in China...I'm a bit disappointed here because my old Synergy models were made in Hope, AK. Surely if those could have been made in the US these could have been as well?

RC-62II center speaker

Written By Jay W, Las Vegas, NV on Thursday, April 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this to replace my Infinity PC351, & I'm glad I did. This speaker has a wider range of sound wavelengths, so you're getting more sound at any volume. This is great for watching regular TV, blu-rays sound amazing. SACD's sound much better through this. Sounds are accurate and never distorted. This was worth every cent...highly recommended!
Pros:
life-like sounds
Cons:
none

Crisp, clear sound. I purchased the RC-42 first, but exchanged it for this RC-62. The difference was huge. The advise to spend the bulk of your budget on the center channel is correct, in my experience. Worth the money, for sure.
Pros:
Great full-range sound, attractive
Cons:
pricey, fairly large

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Exchanged the RC-52ll for this speaker and very glad I did. Now have RC 62 ll Tower speakers, pair of RC 61ll bookshelf speakers and this for center. Kept my surround speakers and woofer from an Atlantic technology set up. Have an Onkyo NR 709 and an Oppo 103. It all fits together nicely. Very crisp and melodic. Great depth of sound. The Klipsch melds well with the other speakers. Very happy with my set up. Crutchfield and sales people great to work with and delivery speed excellent.
Pros:
Appearance and sound fantastic
Cons:
none

Exceptional Center Speaker RC-62 II

Written By Doc, Anasco, PR on Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
WOW, this speaker is fantastic!!! My old Klipsch RC 52(?) was decent but lacked something. My desire to listen to better dialog needed attention. I focused on Klipsch again for another center speaker as my towers and surround are Klipsch. I know the front L-C-R are the main ingredients to the HT as I mainly watch Blu-rays with my Oppo-93 and on my new 60" LED TV. NOW my new center speaker RC-62 II resides in same location as the old and now my ears hear details that I've missed before. I've watched the same movie again in my new RC-62 II and hear much, much better sound detail than before. Pls note that I have high frequency hearing lose and now I hear detail I didn't notice before. Kudos to Klipsch. Also I must comment on Crutchflieds' exceptional shipping service. I live in the boonies (Anasco) in Puerto RIco, a small town on the west side. My RC-62 II arrived in 2 days. NOW that's great customer service!!! I will order my new Klipsch towers from Crutchfield in the near future. Amazing!
Pros:
Wonderful clarity, vocals and detail. Price, I used my 4906 points and received a $93.00 credit off the price Style-beautiful Black Ash; blends in greatly with my existing Klipschs
Cons:
Had to rearrange my entertainment center to fit this enormous center speaker I have to re-watch my 300+ Blu-ray movies again on my new RC-62 II to hear what I missed

I'm not going to go into details regarding sound quality because every ear is different, but let me just say this is a HUGE improvement from my previous HT speakers. I love them! I bought the RB-82II speakers to go along with it. Unbelievable sound at a great price. Get the Cherry finish to get a great buy. You won't go wrong!

Klipsch RC-62ii works great

Written By Winner101, Boise, Idaho on Friday, September 28, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just bought this speaker and have not had time to hook it up. My friend has the exact same model in his home theater set-up that I have listened to dozens of times and it is nice. BTW, he is impressed too. I didn't plan on changing my home theater around right away but heard they were dropping the cherry veneer so I rushed in to buy all new speakers.
Pros:
Solid cabinet and solid sound. Looks awesome and matches my RF-82ii front speakers.
Cons:
I'm going to have to modify my entertainment center to hold this thing. I knew this when I bought it so not an issue.

Perfect sound!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this center to go along with my four Klipsch RF-52 II's. Couldn't imagine the sound being any better. I think I may upgrade the two front RF-52's to the RF-62's just so the sizes match, since I like to leave the grille covers off while in use. No real reason other than the speakers look great. Then I can use the existing RF-52's to convert to a 7.1 from a 5.1 surround system. I have had these speakers for a few weeks now and they have put up with everything I could think to put at it. Including bass test cds I used for my car system back in the day. :) No distortion, only crisp clean sound, great choice for anyone. After listening to my home surround I noticed today that the theater did not seem to sound as good as my house. I guess this could save me money in the long run...

Great Center Speaker

Written By soundlover, El Centro, CA on Sunday, June 05, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just installed my new Klipsch RC-62 II center speaker from Crutchfield on May 27, 2011, in the shelf over my 54" Panasonic Plasma and wired to an Onkyo TX-SR 806 receiver (all 3 purchased from Crutchfield). The sound is excellent, full and sharp. I am very pleased. The speaker carries the full spectrum of sounds and the speech is easily heard and understood.I love Klipsch speakers and want to upgrade my right and left Klipsch (pre-metal woofers) with two RF 52 II (my furniture will not accomodate the bigger 62 models). I always enjoy doing business with Crutchfield who gives such excellent overviews of their products, promptly delivers, & provides good techs to speak with when needed.

Will putting a 60" LCD TV on top on the speaker hurt it? [ Jimmy  Aug 15, 2014 ]

  • I wouldn't put anything on top of a speaker! The speaker is heavy but so is tv...it would look very bad, in my opinion, and not very professional looking [ ANNETTE   Aug 20, 2014 ]
  • It isn't something that I did,however The speaker is pretty solid so I think that it should work. [ CRAIG   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • I don"t think it would hurt the speaker,These speakers are built built good. [ jeffrey   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • Not sure I would do this...think it's likely better to mount the TV behind the speaker on a broader surface [ JOHN   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • I don't know how much that tv would weigh but the box is heavy and seems to be well made. Speaker sounds great to. [ MARK   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • I have had a Samsung 55 plasma on mine for several years with no problem [ RICHARD L   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • I had a 60" Panasonic plasma on top of mine for several months, no harm done. [ JAMES T   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • I wouldn't suggest doing this; the speaker is large and very well constructed, but not built to have a heavy television on top of it. Also, the television would not be very stable on top of the speaker and could easily fall. [ MARK   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • No it won't . [ NATHAN   Aug 16, 2014 ]
the shelves on my entertainment unit are to small to fit this speaker. I was wondering if my 50" hdtv could be placed on top of the speaker.? [ manny  Jul 18, 2014 ]

  • The speakers are very solid and can hold a standard LCD / DLP / Plasma HDTV. But I'm not sure I can see how this would work for you. You don't want to put the speakers next to one another...they should be to the left and right of the TV not directly next to one another. [ Marc   Jul 19, 2014 ]
  • I'd say do not place the TV directly on top of the speaker, but you could call Crutchfield and see what they say. They are always very helpful and may have some ideas that could work in your situation. [ DAVID H   Jul 19, 2014 ]
  • Manny, The speaker is sturdy, but I would not do it. I made a frame-two painted black concrete blocks-8x4x16, plus a 1'' piece of wood on top, plus a piece of shelf board, screwed together, paited all black. Then I just set the frame of on top the blocks and slid the speaker underneath-using the adjustment to point the speaker up toward my ears-the TV setting on the frame and blocks. You can leave the back open to put speaker wires through-just measure the speaker and leave alittle room for adjustment. You could probably make it all out of wood but I did not have the tools for all of that, and the span is pretty wide, so must be sturdy. The speaker sounds great! [ Steve   Jul 19, 2014 ]
  • I would not recommend it! [ Al J.   Jul 19, 2014 ]
