Ya know the Palladium may have been driven by Marketing, pushing Engineering to make something more competitve in the high end speaker market. Honestly, I know I am a dark hearted traitor, but I really like my RF stuff way better than my Hesesy II's, which just suffered a crossover failure after 22 years.
PWK's dream 60 years ago was based on materials that did not exist at the time and engineering which has learned from it's succeses and failures. My mom's 1962 KHorns sound good, they are efficient, open and clear, but I kind of like some of the high end reference stuff better. By saying that Klipsch cannot improve on PWK's design is really an insult to Klipsch engineering. If I had my way I'd swap 'em for some RF-5's an RC-64 and an RSW-12
I can't wait to hear the new P-39's, I am excited, just as I was when I heard some of the new RF/RC/RW stuff and decided it was time to retire my Heresy II's.

Enough Klipsch products, which only leads to the desire for more.
