Great for surrounds

Cut and Run, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: I have an all-Klipsch setup including P-39F Palladium mains. It probably sounds ridiculous that I am using these tiny bookshelfs in the same system, but I needed some small, unobtrusive speakers to use as surrounds. The Palladium bookshelf speakers are anything but unobtrusive.

Great speakers, Great sound

  • Summary: These speakers have a great sound. Don't let the size fool you, they have a lot of punch. I finally got around to replacing to two floor speakers I've had for 20 years. The Klipsch RB-41ll have a better sound and take up way less room.

Very nice pair of bookshelf speakers

MustangMichael, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: I like these a lot. Very good tonal balance and no big complaints other than price. As others have said, these could easily serve as main speakers especially if used with a sub. I've subsequently bought a Fluance XL speaker set piecemeal, so I should note that the Fluance XL7S surround speakers look...

These are really a 4.5

  • Summary: My opinion of these speakers depends upon how you intend to use them and your expectations. If you are looking for small bookshelf speakers to use a mains in a 2.1 or 3.1 setup, than I would rate these as a 4. However, I had VERY high expectations.

Decent little speakers

Gregory S., Newegg
5 February 2011
  • Summary: As rear speakers for a home theater setup goes, these are not bad. I wouldn't want to use them as front speakers even with a subwoofer, due to the restricted bass response. I think the upgrade from here to the RB-51 II, which has a big enough woofer to reach down to 50Hz instead, makes that model a...
  • Pros: Using this style of horn tweeter gives nice dynamics, making these speakers sound more like larger ones in some respects. Tonal balance leans toward the crisp side, the usual for Klipsch. These are very compact and the keyhole+threaded insert combo on the rear gives an excellent set of mounting o...
  • Cons: The 4" woofer on these just isn't big enough for these to have much much bass. Note that the frequency response is already rolling off at 85Hz. That means that even with the common subwoofer crossover frequency of 80Hz, these speakers will be struggling to integrate well without a hole in the bas...

Guter Klang zum kleinen Preis - perfekt als Lautsprecher am Mac

JBinSwitzerland "peterlake2000", Amazon

  • Summary: Erstaunlich wie sich Lautsprecherchassis in den letzten Jahren weiterentwickelt haben. Klipsch hat es jedenfalls raus.. Für ne Regalbox excellent im Klang. In Verbindung mit nem kleinen NAD -verstärker and ner Apple Airport Express , stimmt der Klang.

  • Excerpt: Сравнивал с Yamaha NS-333 на ресивере Yamaha RX-V471. Cd-плеер и провода гораздо более высокой ценовой категории. Ямаха дала не столько мягкий, как "замыленый" и низкодетальный, медленный звук. Его можно слушать долго, хотя восхищения такой звук у меня не вызывает. Ну и низких частот побольше явно.
  • Pros: 1. Детальный в/ч диапазон. 2. Хорошая микродинамика. 3. Неплохая глубина сцены.
  • Cons: 1. Металлический окрас в/ч - видимо связано с конструкцией и материалами динамиков (рупор + титан + керамика). 2. Звук резкий, держит в напряжении. 3. Н/ч диапазона нет как такового. Разве он может быть от 10см динамика? 4. Корпус не заглушен - через фазоинвертор видно, что там нет даже поролона.

  • Excerpt: За эти деньги даже не знаю с чем сравнить. Не требуют сильного усилка. Звук мягкий и ровный от низких до высоких, компактный. Может быть это обусловлено размером динамиков. Старая серия значительно уступает.
  • Pros: Приличная чувствительность: 91.0 Дб Хорошая локализация инструментов и исполнителей У этих колонок есть глубина и мощь Частота кроссовера/1500 Гц-создает единое поле В/Ч и С/Ч Адекватная цена
  • Cons: Всилу рупорности требуют тщательной установки Не допускается подключение по биампинг/bi-amping или бивайринг/bi-wiring Единственный нормальный цвет-черный ясень
