Summary: I have two systems at home. I have a dedicated two channel system and I have a home theater. I choose the components based upon what I plan to do with them. This is why I have the F-10's for my home theater. There many thing to consider when setting up a home theater, but the overriding issue is the WAF. Otherwise known as the wife acceptance factor. Those of you men not married will soon learn what this means.
Summary: Found the Klipsch F-10 speakers at a very good price on Amazon.com. Could not pass up the great deal for such a high rated set of speakers. My old speakers were forty years old. These Klipsch speakers sound fantastic.
Summary: I was looking for surround sound speakers, but bought these...due to the price. It was on sale for $77 each!! So I bought two (2). The sound is amazing in a blu ray movie... would always have to keep turning my head during car chases lol!
Summary: I found these for $128 each this weekend during a Father's Day sale. I bought them yesterday & checked the store's site this morning to find them completely gone. Like they never existed, not just an "out of stock" message. So these F-10s are more than likely being replaced by newer, more expensive models. I watched The Shining on HD DVD (yeah I know, I'm one of THOSE guys) and the sound was phenomenal.
Summary: I like these speakers but they most certainly are not perfect. They seem to go on sale a lot. For the sale price then you cant go wrong. They sound good but there is some definition problems. Its hard to finger but I will try. When trying other speakers I hear things that seem quieter on the F-10. For instance snare drums. The F10's bury snares and seem a little bass heavy. For me this is solved as I paired them up with Athenas which are mid heavy.
Summary: For the sale price on these you will not find a better speaker. They are good enough if you have a receiver that can tune your room, to enjoy a beautiful nearly audiophile experience. Most people would need home acoustics to get better sound more so than very expensive speakers. With no EQ they for sure have a low end bump, slight midbass dip, and a 3kHz or so boost. Most receivers will compensate for that these days.
Summary: **Be advised that these are not sold in pairs** Like the item description indicates.. these are Great sounding towers with a small footprint. These were purchased as rear surrounds and the height clears the couch for direct aim at the intended audience.
