    Klipsch Reference R-25c center channel speaker

    I was very hesitant to buy this speaker after hearing it in the store but thankfully I trusted the reviews and went ahead and bought it. I'm not sure what they did to make it sound that bad in the store but I was pleasantly surprised when I hooked it up at home. Coming from a smaller set of Infinity primus theater pack to this is like night and day, the klipsch has so much more fuller and louder sound than what I had that I really can't compare the 2 different sets and it just makes me wish I would have upgraded years ago! I bought this and a set of KF-26 Floor standing speakers and they sound awesome together and I can actually hear the voices in movies now without having to wake the neighborhood although I can wake them if I really felt like it with this setup! The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that I feel it's a bit overpriced when you can buy a reference series ll center channel speaker for $50 to $100 more and have better looking and better sounding speaker although that is my thoughts on how they sound and might sound differently to you but I do recommend listening to both before buying. I still highly recommend this speaker as it still sounds better than any other center channel that best buy carries including in the magnolia section of the store. Have fun shopping and enjoy building your new system as much as I did!

    I own a Killer Man Cave system so I bought a woman cave system for the bedroom for my wife. She loves Blue ray movies and she bought 10 movies but she never watched them. So I bought this Klipsch Center, Klipsch R-15M bookshelves, Klipsch R-10SW, and a $199.00 Pioneer receiver. This Center speaker can play movie dialogue clearly! Bright sounding out of the box, but after three days it is now warm and musical. We can watch movies and hear what the actors are actually saying. Its small enough to fit inside every entertainment system. The copper woofers look great so I left the grills off. My wife is now watching movie after movie and that is worth every penny spent!!

    This speaker quickly made me realize how much audio I missed out on. I used to have to turn my surround up to hear people talk, and back down when action in a movie was going on. This had the power to make those sounds louder and more clear. Now I don't have to keep adjusting the audio!!

    What a difference a good center speaker makes. Didn't know what I wasn't missing in dialogue from my movies. Even with the volume down, and whispering, still can hear everything. Don't waste your time with the cheap stuff. GO FOR IT !!!!!!!

    Quality Center Channel for Less

    Got this center to replace my bowers Wilkins center. My home theater is all B&W but my subs. The B&W center channel would get lost and not be able to keep up, so I bought the klipsch just to try because I heard good things about them.... It is a very balanced and quality speaker that has no problem being the front stage or just to blend in with the rest of your system. I'm impressed with the sound and quality and happy that I saved quite a bit compared to the B&W.

    I got this speaker as an upgrade to a small Kipsch Quintet center channel. The difference amazing. Dialogue is so much clearer and easier to understand. While it can be turned up high volumes, it's nice to be able to hear everything clearly at lower levels. Plus it looks great! Highly recommended.

    I bought the speaker to compliment the two R 28 towers that I bought during the Thanksgiving week sale. It is replacing the center channel speaker in my quintet package. It is hooked up to a Pioneer Elite receiver. The sound is crisp and clean throughout and can handle all the power that my receiver has. As I wall mounted the speaker, its' weight required that I install a shelf. M den is 13' x 29' and the system fills the room with sound. Next up, upgrade the surround speakers. The reference speakers series are an excellent entry level system for an average size room. My only regret is not buying the complete package from the beginning.
