Klipsch puts their big-box lines on sale frequently, finding those for 25%-50% off new isn’t unheard of. The price seems in line for for a used pair would cost. If buying in person just take a good look at them first, if they look real they al ost certainly are, I can’t imagine there’d be much of a business case for building convincing Klipsch RP fakes.
If you’re buying online and having them shipped just pay with PayPal (and request an invoice to do it officially vs the ‘send money as a friend’ option) and if they arrive and look janky you can dispute it and will be protected.
The RP-280FA are not really "entry" level but not TOL either. They are a "fancier" version of the RP-280F with real wood veneer and an up firing Atmos module built in. They are actually quite nice speakers. I also doubt they have been counterfeited but examine thoroughly before buying. They are currently being sold for $799.00 EACH so your deal may just be a good one.
