Conclusion: We thoroughly enjoyed our time with the Klipsch Quintet speakers. Their combination of class-leading build quality, pleasingly rich sound, and compact size keeps them firmly in the top-tier of mid-priced miniature speaker systems. Their ability to blend well with a variety of subs should also prove to be a bonus if you’ve already got one you’re fond of, or are interested in something other than the manufacturer-suggested models.
Pros: Surprising dynamics and loudness capabilities, Rich, warm, and well-balanced sound, Great for long-term listening sessions, Fulsome lower mids rare for speakers of this category
Cons: Recessed upper mids and lower treble can obscure detail, No angling/tilt footers for the center channel
Excerpt: Compact satellite/subwoofer sets are often affordable, mate well with budget receivers, allow more speaker-placement width than soundbars, lend themselves to wall mounting—and best of all, they don’t hog the room, even if you place them on stands (which would usually produce the best sonic results).
Excerpt: “Small but mighty” is the way to describe the new Klipsch Quintet SL audio system. In today’s interior decor, gone are the big, clunky and space-grabbing sound systems. Gone also are the earth-shaking booming bass and ear-splitting reverb. The new Klipsch Quintet SL produces great sound without offending. That’s really the aim of most audiophiles.
