RC-61 doesn't exist. RC would be a Reference Center with one 6".
RC are center, RS are Reference Surround and RB are Reference Bookshelf. RB-61 and RS-42 are nice with the RF-82 or RF-62.
RC-62 is mandatory for RF-82 and recommended for RF-62, the fact that it is 299$ makes it a no-brainer.
For the Sub, i highly recommend the Klipsch Reference RW-12d at 299$ at newegg.COM if you have an amerifriend. Currently OOS, it's unbeatable for 300$.
Receiver really depends on your specific needs.
I have an RW-10d which I love, I see the 12d for $499 at newegg.com, where'd you see $299?

I just ordered the RF-82s, but I just measured my home theatre stand and the area for the center speaker isn't big enough for the RC-62. FRIG!@!!
Is there an alternative someone can recommend that is smaller in width?

The RC-62 is the only real proper match for the RF-82s. I've been waiting to replace my RC-52 for a while, every time the 62 had been on sale I've missed it. Just ordered it.

That said, if you *have* to have something smaller, the 52 will do. If you're interested in buying used, PM me.

Agreed 100% my old setup was rf62s with rc52, then I upgraded to rf82s and the rc52 was underpowered.

Thanks OP!
I've ordered the RF-82,RC-62 and RPW-10. I currently have a Polk PSW110 sub and also looking at SW-110. I never used Klipsch sub before. Any recommendations for me to choose the sub? Also need recommendation for receiver to match with the new speakers (support 7.1 and within $1k budget).

Sorry, you ordered the RPW-10 but you're looking for a recommendation for a sub? Am I missing something?

For the receiver, go and audition a bunch with the RF-82s. I've said it many times on this forum - the RF-82's are very bright (klipschorn) and need to be paired properly for your ear. I'm using a Pioneer 1019 and it's not well matched for me.

I was in the same boat. Luckily I found a buyer for my RC-52 so I bought the RC-62 this time around.

Keep in mind these are discontinued models. Not that it really matters that much.

Don't be so crazy about it. It's only 5.1.

Yes it is "only" 5.1 (with zone 2 line out) but it's still a very good price for the AVR-1713. Not everyone has the want/need for 7.1+.
