Best sounding speakers compaired to competitors
Posted by: slimer from: Maplewood, MN on
When I first started looking for outdoor speakers, I was already set on buying Bose. Went to Best Buy to hear them on their display panel and an employee switched over to the Klipsch ones. I was instantly amazed. Klipsch sounded better. I bought the Klipsch speakers and mounted them on the side of my garage to hear them while I sit by the fire pit. They are well built speakers and the brackets are well capable of holding the speakers as well. They do include a rubber baffle insert to put in the port hole if you forcast some serious weather. I've already taken off the front grills after a driving rain storm one day see if they needed drying out. They were fine. The front speaker cone enclosure is well sealed for weather resistance. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone.

These speakers are the best... highly recommended

I bought these speakers last fall. The brackets were easy to mount and attach to the speakers.(however the bracket is not the best). The sound quality is amazing and covers the whole range from high to low frequency. Even at high volume levels, the sound is NOT distorted (such as other speakers where the bass is distorted when you crank it.) There is always clear audio emmitting from these speakers.
When i was shopping around i had looked at bose outdoor speakers as well and these Klipsch speakers sounded better for about $150 less.
I would say that these speakers give you the best sound for your money.

You get what you pay for! I purchased these Klipsch speakers to mount on our backyard pergola. I used outdoor speaker wire and buried it to the side of the house and then ran the wire in with the cable that goes into the house. From there directly to my Sony receiver and they fill the air with outstanding sound quality. These speakers truly have excellent depth and create a wall of sound in all the ranges. The clarity and cripness is what you would expext from a high end speaker and can go as loud as you like with no distortion. We mostly listen to old school bands - INXS, U2, Bowie, Neil Young, Skinner, Eagles, and Petty. You will not be disapointed - Klipsch last for years and are worth the money. Make sure you have a receiver that has a/b channel switching - this way you can select your indoor speakers or outdoor. You will also want to make sure you are driving them with enough power from your receiver. Almost any major brand receiver will do the trick. Mine have been in or 2 years - 0 issues.
Hope this helps.

I originally looked at these speakers because the Best Buy web site and stores advertize these speakers as having a 6 1/2" woofer. After visiting the store I realized they are actually 5.25". See for yourself... http://www.klipsch.com/products/details/kho-7.aspx
I wish Besy Buy would correct this. However I did purchase these speakers and really enjoy the sound. I'm considering purchasing another pair for the hot tub area.

Not just for outdoor...
Posted by: Leostriple from: Memphis, TN on
My wife and I just did a fairly nice upgrade with our Home Theater. We went with Klipsch speakers all the way around. I wanted a larger system, and after listening to enough of her bad jokes about guys and the need to have big things, I did initially settle for one compromise -- on the rear channel speakers. I had opted for the Klipsch Icon VS-14, but she didn't like the asthetics of the speaker. The sales agent did a side by side with the VS-14 and the Klipsch Synergy Outdoor Speakers. Unreal. The outdoor speaker sounded far better than the VS-14s in our collective opinion. It made sense given the fact the good outdoor speakers need to have a much fuller range and response than a similarly sized typical rear channel indoor speaker. I never would have considered these as an original option, but never would have conisdered the VS-14s if I would have heard the Synergy speakers first.

The sound on these speakers are really good. Good highs and mids. Bass is a little lacking because I thought I was buying speakers that have 6 1/2" woofers. It does not. I realized this after opening my box and reading that it has a 5" woofer. Wish bestbuy would do something about this. There website indicates on product info 6 1/2" woofers

This speakers are great. I love em. Easy to install. The Bass coming out of this little things are amazing. The range is excellent. Very clear. Gets up to 10dbs and still very clear on my denon AVR. I use it for the zone 2 amp out for the pool area.

Great speakers for the price
Posted by: hifidelity from: Cape Coral, FL on
We had to run a lot of wire through a very tight attic, and were a bit apprehensive about how the speakers would sound once we were all done with the installation. They are AMAZING! Great high end and base - very full sounding for all types of music. Highly recommended!

Took a while to find the right ones but theses speakers are the bomb! Compared to Bose for price and sound ,"awesome"! I placed these outside on 12X12 pool deck and recommended to be placed at ear level. So did that as if you are in the pool at all times, I live in Ky , these speakers have been through hail, extreme heat , rain and are in direct sunlight practicly all day since May of this year. Will remove for the winter months. But still produce awesome sound. Recover is about 95 ft away and installed in conduit from deck to basement! Another fine product by Klipsch!!!
