Well made, great sound, even in a non-standard application

Randy M., Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Disclaimer - I use these as my PC speakers so I have no reference related to any type of typical television application. For the purpose I use them for I feel I couldn't have made a better choice.
  • Pros: - Great, crystal clear sound - Extremely easy setup - Individual power sources for each speaker set (Sub and Bar) - Big sound in a small package - Simple operation - Sleek and attractive form factor
  • Cons: - Lots of extra packaging - Included optical cable could be a few feet longer

Fantastic sound, easy setup

jason b., Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Pros: This thing sounds great in my bedroom. Setup in 5 minutes, only 2 wires coming from the soundbar. Watching Star Wars right now and the sound quality rivals my much more expensive 7.1 channel setup with mid-level Polk speakers and a Yamaha receiver. I don't understand the negative comments about t...
  • Cons: none. other than lacking bluetooth. but for the price - wow. who could ask for more.

Good Value

Michael F., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • Summary: Seems Klipsch has branched out and sells these "Energy" branded items for a lower price....
  • Pros: Great for the price. Pretty sure its the same unit as the Klipsch Icon SB-1, which goes for double the price on a competitors website. Great sound, much better than the normal TV speakers.
  • Cons: None. Well the controller is a little lackluster, but its a sound bar, and everything can be remapped to another controller anyways.

Well, . . .

edgardo j., Newegg
10 November 2014
  • Summary: The Elite subwoofer set at 4 o'clock compares to my 100-watt/10-inch Harman Kardon set at only 10 o'clock. With the same music loudness
  • Pros: Sound bar has clear sound. Signal connectivity is quick. Doesn't require a rocket scientist to set up. Bought it for $150.
  • Cons: Subwoofer is so-so for me. I have to really turn up the volume to hear the punch. And I put it in the middle and the corner of the room. No luck there.

Perfect Size and Sound

Brett A., Newegg
5 November 2014
  • Summary: I knew all of the cons going into this purchase. All-in-all, this is an amazing TV soundbar that works really well for movies, TV, and games. If you want something that can reproduce concert orchestra performances or make the house rattle while listening to dubstep, keep looking and raise your price...
  • Pros: + Great Sound, especially for the price range + Wireless Subwoofer + Toslink optical input (cable included!) + Works amazing with 5.1 Dolby Digital signals in 3D mode + Wall mountable
  • Cons: - Keyhole mount for wall, no brackets - Sub doesn't hit the really low frequencies (fully expected at this price range) - Tweeters aren't really loud

Great sound

Lyle C., Newegg
2 November 2014
  • Summary: Granted it's not a 7.1 speaker system, but it sounds fine. If you don't have space for 5.1 or 7.1 system, this is a great alternative and you'll pay less than $200. I highly recommend it for apartments and anyone who wants a lot of bang for the buck.
  • Pros: Great sound. Matches the sound of sound bars in the $400 price range. Subwoofer produces nice base and is wireless.
  • Cons: None for it's purpose and price.

Great upgrade for stock speakers under $200

Anonymous, Newegg
29 September 2014
  • Pros: Probably the best sound upgrade from stock TV speakers you can get for $179 (on sale). A decent 5.1 or 7.1 would cost at least twice that much.
  • Cons: Subwoofer booms a lot (not in a good way) if you turn the sub volume up too high. Seems like the sweet spot on the sib is different for both movies and music. Might try different placement, too, as it's in a corner right now. Not a dealbreaker at $179 and I am overall very happy with the system. ...

Energy sound bar system

steven n., Newegg
14 September 2014
  • Summary: I have the energy take five surround sound system and now i us the elite sound bar and sub as a dedicated music/video source . Also beefs up video games sound .
  • Pros: The digital optical input is a first class connection option . Blue tooth subwoofer paired to the soundbar instantly . The little remote is becoming industry standard , i have one from sony and nyko .
  • Cons: I could do without the RCA analog input . There is only two inputs and they both should be digital optical .

Great sound, Too bad BT was built-in

Peter L., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I have a home-theater setup (Yamaha, Paradigm), but don't want to have to turn it one for nightly TV viewing. This provides great sound quality with the convenience of auto-on. Included the Optical cable. Sub-woofer synced with the bar quickly and allows for tuning the bass level to your needs.
  • Pros: Solidly built and great sound quality. Special sale price & included FREE Scosche BT adapter. Large/solid sub-woofer. Very good sound, not boomy Quality finish.
  • Cons: Lack of BT built-in, but I knew that when I bought it. Special price included free scosche BT adapter. Not a fan of the 3D setting, but maybe others would be.
