      What's the best 'sub' to go with this set? I want very good low bass.   (8 Answers)

      And also I've always had floor tower speakers, 3 way with 10 or 12 inch woofers, can a 'sub' box and smaller speakers (8" in this case) really compete with a set of larger woofers in the tower?

        Answer

        Well given that you've had 10 and 12" woofers before, you know they sound great. With that said, 8" is enough, although 10" is even better as it moves more air. But a solution with these is there are 2 8" drivers in there. So my 2c is this...Get these, and if you REALLY want deep bass, get a 15" sub...either a Klipsch or something else if you prefer. To get the really low tones (down to 20hz where you really feel it) requires a 15" or larger sub. It can be done with others, and for example the Klipsch 10" sub sounds great...but it only gets down to the low 30s at spec. It will play down to 27, but it is weak there. These + 15" sub = happiness for you imo.

          The speakers are 42-3/4 inches tall without the grille. The grille sits 1/2 inch higher then the speaker, making the overall height 43-1/4 inches.

            what denon receiver for these speakers would be the smallest one could go?   (6 Answers)

              Answer

              I have a Denon receiver myself. Model is some letters and 600 something. They put out about 150 watts times two into a 8-ohm load per speaker. The Klipsch towers LAUGH at my receiver's amp! Driving the towers hard and loud for over an hour and then, Silence. The amp's "protection circuit" shut it down to keep it from melting! After a cooling off period, the party continued (at a significantly reduced volume) and the Klipsch towers were STILL LAUGHING!! Lesson learned.

                No. This is just a speaker. It connects to a receiver through speaker wire. You'll connect your device to the receiver.

                  In my opinion, yes. They sound phenomenal. They've added the much needed depth and clarity to both my music and movies. I can finally turn movies up and still hear everything with crystal clarity. They don't sound muddy or "woofy" at high volumes. Oh and playing games on Xbox One with these is pure exhilaration (also with 2 subs). I'm going to be bi-amping them soon. I have zero complaints about these speakers and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
