Klipsch Reference RB-41 II ...

Summary: I am a long time Klipsch fan. Love horns. While these are not quite Cornwalls, they are certainly worth the price. I am using them coupled with SW-12's and they are great for home theater use.
Pros: Pretty clean sound - good at low volume and better when pushed to the limit. They are very efficient.
Cons: You will want to pair them with a sub if you like loud clean bass.
Summary: Purchased Klipsch speakers to replace an old theater in a box system. There is no comparison and sound is nothing short of amazing. After also comparing Bose and Polk - Klipsch won out on sound quality and value. They brought our movie viewing experience to a whole new level. Very pleased with this purchase.
Summary: I have a preference for smallish bookshelf speakers of this size for stereo music listening. They are truly bookshelf speakers that do not dominate the room they're in. Pair them with an inexpensive subwoofer tucked out of the way and you get a very satisfying sound. I've tried larger and more expensive bookshelf speakers, but I feel like these Klipsch RB-41's will give you 80% of the sound quality of much larger and expensive speakers for a quarter of the price.
Summary: Impressive speakers for the price and size. Not as finicky to location as directions led me to believe. Would defintiely recommend using in conjunction with a subwoofer to maximize their potential, but impressive alone.
Pros: Sound great, look great.
Cons: Definitely limited in how much power they will accept if used as a single pair.
Summary: I finally completed my reference system. I'm using RF62 towers, RC62 center RS42 surrounds, RB 51 wides, 2 RW10d subs and 4 of these (RB41) for front high and rears. The system is fantastic. These little speakers complement the system beautifully. Klipsch is top line without spending a fortune to build a great home theater system. Great price form Crutchfield and super fast service.
Pros: Great looking, great performers, great price.
