Default please help for karaoke speaker

I need to buy a pair of speaker for mainly karaoke. I have purchased Polk RTI A9 but the sound is so not good for karaoke. Now I'm looking at the Klipsch RF 82 for the replacement. I'm not sure if it the right one for karaoke. Let's me know if any other brand are good for home karaoke.

Thanks

Depends on what issue you have with the Polks. Just saying they are not good for karaoke is not very informative. What most people find objectionable with home speakers in PA type use is the excessive bass that comes through. This is actually not the fault of the speakers, but the lack of good equalization on the microphone. I think you would be money ahead to get an equalizer for your microphone inputs to tailor the voice sounds you are sending to the speakers. The microphone equalizer needs to be separate from the background music signal so it alters the microphone signal only. Many good DJ mixers will allow for this.

Just want to add to this thread and don't want to create a new one.

I want to setup karaoke system. Can I use floor standing tower home theater speakers ( I want to use Polk speakers again)? At what model can it be compare to karaoke speaker? Do I need center speaker and sub for karaoke system?

I am in the process of looking for home system and want to use the same speakers to get the loud sound for karaoke. I don't have room or want to add big black karaoke speakers into my setup.

Please advise. Thanks.

Ok, again the issue with ANY good home speakers is the increased bass vs karaoke speakers. With karaoke the speakers are intended for the human voice and do not need the extended range of home theater/stereo speakers. Equalization on the microphone is going to be the key, not any particular Polk speaker.
