Summary: I must confess I bought mine through Crutchfield...having said that, these are very nice speakers....I read a lot of comments about how big they are, and how they would overpower a small room?? I don't agree.
Summary: These are outstanding speakers capable of being played with even the most modest power. I am currently playing these using a Denon 590 at 75 watts RMS (introductory model Denon receiver), and these speakers sing!
Upgraded all my old klipsch speakers (2001-2003 Reference models) to the newer reference line and blown away.

Summary: I had some very old Klipsch speakers (13 years old) , none of them are blown, broken , and in mint condition and have gotten various comments that my speakers are new. (Family, friends etc) mostly because of the sound quality and premium Klipsch build.
Why---Why---Do people post completely irrelevant and irresponsible 1 star reviews based on everything but the product???

Summary: Giving this product a 1 star is tantamount to slander. I wonder at times that envious people with an agenda are slanting product reviews just to be evil. I am heartened to know it appears most viewers cast it aside as we used to do with the East German judges scores at the Olympics.
