    Can You Say Cinema Sound?

    Can You Say Cinema Sound? I have Klipsch SF1 towers for my front L-R's in my 7.1 surround system so I know alittle bit about Klipsch sound. This pair of speakers are hands down, unbeatable if used in the surround positions. Ignore their "outdoor" designation, because these speakers are a killer pair! In a 5.1 setup for example? A pair of these in the 4th & 5th surround spots will do it! Yup. But imagine 2 pairs of these in a 7.1 system or 3 pairs in a ATMOS 7.1.4 setup? Whew, I'm here to tell ya'! Using these will allow you to run your surround channels in the large setting. Whether critics admit it or not, running your surround system in the Large speaker setting in all channels, takes your sound to the next level. I know, because I do it. These speakers can handle the large setting & play back at cinematic volume levels. These are NOT just "outdoor" speakers & are a steal at this price! If I were building a new setup using Klipsch speakers? I'd use these in as my surround array without a doubt & friends would ask, "how'd you achieve that cinema sparkle?" But, don't trust me. At this price you too can have "real" cinema sound. I'd buy these now before they're no longer available, or their price sky rockets. ~ peace

    I run sound and have plenty of experience in speaker placement, eq, etc. I own plenty of sound equipment, but my outside patio by the hot tub never got what it deserved until I bought these. For the longest, I was running the Dual brand outdoor speakers with a cheap amp. I added a powered Polk sub under my patio to assist with bass. I had to add a eq to the setup, because the duals had missing frequencies when I ran pink noise through them and a calibrated microphone. I changed the cheap amp to a Sony high powered one. Sound got a little better, but was still lacking. I finally bought these speakers. Holy cow. Game changer. The clarity and speaker imaging from the horns make me think about using these in my home theater! I cannot comment on the low end as the Polk sub takes care of that. I highly recommend a sub if bass is important. But the mods and highs are killer on these. Specs don’t tell the whole story.

    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.

    We recently built a extensive open cover over a patio, 18' x 36', adjacent to our deck. It would have seemed incomplete without adding speakers, tied to our in home system. Once the decision was made I started the search for speakers, indoor/outdoor, of sufficient quality that my neighbors would not be subjected to harsh music from our yard. These Klipsch speakers stood out to us as far superior to anything else in the under $400 price range. In fact, we found them at Best Buy for $199.00 a pair, cheaper than E-Bay or Amazon. Even our construction guys said they were the best sounding speakers they'd seen in several projects they had been a part of. The finish is of good quality, although if you are installing them near a salt water beach they have been reported to have the grill rust away in a couple of years. Otherwise, they have good highs and midrange, and the lows can be heard as part of the music. Don't count on them to sound like you have subs, or you'll be disappointed. For the $200 we spent I don't think we could have picked a better speaker for our application.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    I have purchased this brand for inside my home and was very pleased with them. I seen the outdoor speakers on sale and after reading reviews I bought a pair for around my pool. I spray painted them brown to match my decor and they turned out nice. They mounted easily and the mount bracket and knobs make it easy for me to adjust to my liking. They sound great. I can really crank them up. They can handle the bass very well and the highs and mid range are clear and crisp. I do not however have them connected to an amp (yet). I'm more than likely going to buy a second pair when they go on sale again. Winter weather will be the test of time although they are under my patio covers fascia so I don't expect an issue with them. They are made well.

    Open Box Buy... beware of open box lies

    This is a great example of how far from the customer BB has gotten. I purchased these and returned them the same day over one month ago...yet they want me to review the product. Long story short I purchased these as an open box buy and the sales guy told me they were only used one week and the customer returned them because they would not properly mount to his house. The open box tag indicated nothing was missing. When I opened the "open box" these looked like they were used for years. Faded paint with a moldy tinge. No mounting brackets included. The best part is on the bottom of one of the speakers was blue painters tape with "intermittent distortion" written on it in Sharpie. I don't even want to discuss how I was asked to leave the store by some 20 Year old clerk who does not know the first thing about customer service. BTW I recently purchased an 80" LED TV....from HH Gregg. Way to go BB.

    I bought 2 pairs of these speakers to replace some old KLH speakers on the front and back decks of my houseboat. I replaced one and then turned on my system to hear the difference. OMG!! The sound was awesome. These have SO much more bass and clarity it is unbelieveable. Very easy to install as well. I have gotten numerous comments from my boating "family" at Lake Cumberland, KY. To the point that they asked me to turn my system up while on the cove and they all turned their music off. I actually bought one pair and took to the boat to install to make sure they were worth the extra money that they cost over the others they carried. Did not hesitate to go back the next week and buy the second pair. Very happy overall.

    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.

    I was all set to run out to best buy to get a receiver and outdoor speakers for my deck area without braking the bank. From the reviews I had read. My mind was set on the Insignia NS-R2001 receiver on sale for $79. And the insignia NS- E2111 speakers for $82. One reviewer stated the insignia speakers sounded as good as the klipsch for a 3rd the price. I am no audiophile. But after listening in the store. He couldnt have been more wrong. The differance was like night and day. And bb was running a package deal. The Insignia receiver and the klipsch speakers for $299. The salesman I had didn`t inform me of the sale or try to sway me to the klipsch. I knew about the deal from my research on line.

    I had a pair of Athena outdoor speakers I had for about 15 years finally blew. I bought a pair of Klipsch outdoor speakers from an online audio re-seller because they were cheap. Ended up being a knock of pair and blew after not even 1 year and had no warranty. I looked around for some replacement speakers and for the price these were the best. They sound great and perfect for medium to loud music by the fire.

    I listened to all of the outdoor speakers at Best Buy. That included Klipsh, Bose, Yamaha, and some others. For me, they all sounded very well. I purchased at Best Buy too. Mounting was easy. Two holes per bracket. The speakers include a rubber boot to cover the jacks. I hooked them up to an old Harmon Kardon receiver. The sound is exceptional. At low volume, you can converse and still get excellent highs and lows from the speakers. There is no tinny sound like many others complain about with other speakers. At high volume, well, it rocks big time! So far so good.

    Good outdoor speakers

    I haven't heard all the speakers available but these are better than the 6-8 sets in the store--even the Bose. The sound is less "contained" and is better dispersed and non-directional. I've found that this is a good characteristic for outdoor speakers where you're likely not to be in a perfect position for listening. We gave a pair to someone for Christmas last year and, when Best Buy had them on sale, I had to get a pair for us. The pair I got was missing the knobs to attach to the wall brackets but after a couple of emails to Klipsch they sent me a set of 4 by UPS second day air. Good service.

    These Klipsch Synergy outdoor speakers far surpass my expectations. I currently own other Klipsch stereo/home theater speakers as well as some other brands and have sold various brands in the past. I had certain expectations for decent sound from these but had some concerns over the specs, but I felt these would be the best for the price. Well, after hooking up the speakers over our patio, I was pleasantly surprised to find they sounded markedly better than I had expected. We bought a second pair for the other end of our patio, too. They were very easy to install as well.

    Some of the older horn loaded Klipsch speakers had a top end that would drive you out of the room, not these. They have a warm and sweet top end that one could listen to all day without the dreaded listener fatigue. Midrange is smooth and natural. While these little guys don't rattle the windows with low base extension, they are surprisingly punchy and tight in the mid and upper base notes. They are very efficient speakers that can be cleanly driven to a "wake up your neighbors" level! BB price matched Amazon and saved me $100, so these were a no brainer. Nice sounding, well built outdoor speakers.

    These are pretty good speakers for the price. I was a bit disappointed in the mounting bracket. It is a C-bracket that only allows movement of the speaker up and down. It would have been nice if they included a universal threaded hole in the back then you could get any style mounts you wanted. The other thing is that the speaker wire connectors are not premium. I like to use banana plugs for all my speaker wires which aren't possible with these speakers. It's not the end of the world but one little thing that could have been upgraded without much cost in production.

    Great sound for the price and size of the speakers. I only give it 4 stars though because the midrange could be better. They use horns for treble which is a different sound then from a traditional speaker. Bass is very good but not overbearing. I do have them mounted in the corner of a soffit out on the patio though so the bass could be getting some help from the reflections. Also, I am powering them with an old power amp I have so they are getting plenty of power, this makes any speaker sound better than an average receiver can do.

    luckily i used geek squad in hooking up my new receiver which is digital. it worked fine with my indoor speakers but not enough volume going to my existing outdoor speakers which play on zone 2. we ordered the klipsch which was thought to be the problem. still not enough volume. then an adapter to make the analog speakers work with the digital receiver. that made all the difference. pleny of volume. just makes me wonder if the older ones would have worked with the adapter. gave them away though so will never know.
