Summary: I was walking through Fry's Electronics and I found these at $170 each, new boxes on sale. I grabbed a set immediately as I knew the price was a steal. Anyone who knows about consumer grade speakers know that the build quality and drivers are good but the crossover is cheap. Actually even in most high end speakers the crossover is lacking. Audiophile caps are expensive and these use some of the cheapest caps available.
Summary: I was looking for a set of bookshelf speakers after I moved to a space where the towers would not fit and the installed ceiling speakers were inadequate. These really sound great. Mostly listening to vinyl through a tube amp. All I thought I would have to give up by going to a smaller speaker ended up being nothing. Klipsch has done it again, at a great price point.
Summary: I finally got the speakers hooked up and so far performance is great! It came in on time. The only thing is one of the speakers logo on the bottom is upside down (didn't know this until a guest brought it to my attention). Nothing can be done about it. Looks like it was put on wrong in the first place. I somewhat felt like I had bought a "knock off" brand! For that, I gave this product a 3.
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.
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.
