Clean & LOUD...

David S, Crutchfield
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm a drummer & guitar player. I like/need loud and accurate performance. The RB-81's are absolute monsters in delivery. I immediately played my fave sound system test-disc collection: ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, Heaven Up Here; TED NUGENT, Electric Ballroom; ROXY MUSIC, Avalon; ADELE, 21; SINEAD O'CONNOR, any of her albums; FOO FIGHTERS, any.
  • Pros: Super loud and super accurate/clean; the finish on the cabinets is beautiful.
  • Cons: Not really a con but a caveat: these are a little larger cabinets and a little heavier than your average bookshelf speaker. Anyone should know that about an 8" loaded cabinet but just to note here to be sure. Wish the cabinets came in cherry or white?

  • Summary: Did some remodeling had had to kiss my floor standing speakers good bye. Bought these because they are floor speaker replacements. Does not exactly replace my floor speakers. But a serviceable option.

Klipsch Reference RB-81 II

Tim G, Crutchfield
16 August 2013
  • Summary: Crisp, clean, airy sound to die for with my mono block tube amps. Beautiful cabinets! They sound perfect to Fleetwood Mac, Sleely Dan, and the Eagles. Highly reccomended!
  • Pros: Dual binding post for bi-amping. Clean, perfect sounding horns, nice tight low end. Very good looking!
  • Cons: Some mixes the highs over do the lows. That can be fixed with bi-amping and controlling the high, and low volumes. Also with a sub they woud be out of this world!

Worth the price

  • Summary: Pricey, yes; worth it yes- buy these speakers and you will enjoy them for decades. Shimmering highs and good, powerful lows from the 8-inch woofer, minimum size for full bass response. The magazine Consumer Reports did a survey many years back on bookshelf speakers and recommended buying an 8 inch woofer, as they said this is the minimum size for "full bass response.

Great sound, soundstage, and imaging if you are in the right spot.

dcmorris, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I got a pair of these to replace my Infinity Primus P363, which I had just obtained but was not entirely satisfied with. The Primus were good, but the imaging wasn't as good as my old Fried A2s which finally bit the dust after 30 years of wonderful sound. I really like the Klipsch speakers. The imaging is clear and precise, and the soundstage is wide. There is no harshness in the high frequencies (unlike the Infinity).
  • Pros: Great imaging, soundstage, clarity, with no harshness. Good, but not great, bass.
  • Cons: None really for a speaker of this size and price range.
