    Consider what you want them for.

    Ok lets debunk a few reviews here. Yes they are ugly, so just put them on small shelves lined up with your couch to they left and right. Now they look like surround speakers should. No, they are not too weak. Surround speakers do not produce much sound. you shouldn't hear them all the time and when you can they should be clean and subtle. They are only ment tho produce the little sounds that "surround" you. And when they need to be they are as loud as they should be. However, if you are trying to use 5 ch. stereo for music you may want a pair of VB 25s instead, for the power. Consider what you want them to so before you buy them. Surround sound is an effect where little power is nead to run rear speakers. if you want more sound that's a different story.

    Excellent Rear Surround Speakers

    Posted

    I recently bought Klipsch VF-35 towers thru my "deal of the day" e mail for 139.95 each and needed to upgrade my surround speakers as well. I had been looking for the matching Icon surrounds to match my towers but hated the thought of spending so much for speakers that aren't intended to put out a lot of sound other than effects. I went into BB to look around and to my amazement, they had these in a factory sealed box on clearance for 89.95 pair. WOW! Right place at the right time. Anyways, I just hooked these up and did the auto calibration routine and I am so disappointed at all of the wonderful sounds I have been missing with my old speakers. These are absolutely amazing with the way they put out clean, crisp highs and subtle lows. sometimes loud big lows depending on what I'm listening to or watching. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a great set of rear surrounds........

    I have been looking at these speakers for awhile but the price was too much. It is hard to lay down $300 for speakers that are not used that much during movie play back. I got a deal on these (demo) for $159 and I was all over it. I had purchased a center channel klipsch and loved the way they sound louder. I love these surround speakers. They sound amazing!! The way they disperse the sounds in all directions. I will say now that they are worth the $300 price tag. They make almost as big of an improvement in sound as my powered sub (Almost).

    Purchased these matching rears to compliment my icon towers and center and was not that impresessed. To top it off, I traded in my Senergy III's in for these pairs and when tried to get them back, come to find out that Best Buy doesn't even carry them any more.Talking about 400 watts down to 200. Even the matching center is 300 watts. The wattage just isnt high enough to match the center and the towers that goes with these pair. They get drowned out by the two. Anyway, wait to get them when Klipsch decides to move up to at least a 5 1/4 inch drive and at least 300 watts.

    Good speakers for smaller room

    These are good speakers for a smaller size room. I have a pretty small living room and hoped to just have these 2 front speakers and a center channel... they just weren't loud enough. I will probably end up using them as rear speakers and getting larger ones for the front. They sound good and don't distort when they're turned up, but they lack some of the base that gives them a powerful sound that carries through the room. They would work well as a center channel or rear speaker but just don't carry the punch that a floor standing speaker does.

    Frist speaker by Klipsch I did not like

    Klipsch I think cut some corners with this speaker! It's not that they sound bad they are very clear and clean at high volume. They just get overwhelmed by my other speakers. I have a Denon 3803 receiver and the Klipsch Icon speakers, which are my third set of Klipsch speakers. Just to hear the VS-14 I have to adjust the speaker setting on my receiver below 0 for the Icon speakers and have the VS-14 at the plus 12 adjustment. They are not the surround sound speakers I hoped they would be.

    Great sound. We got the 2 floor speakers VF-35, a center VC-25, and 2 free (in-store promo) surround speakers VS-14 (connected using the Rocketfish Universal Wireless rear speaker connector). Not cheap, but worth it. We are using this for a home theater system, and after simple hookup, we can scare the neighbors! Definitely a good buy and worth the money!

    Good Value

    I replaced some older pioneer speakers with these and the matching center speaker. Wow, what an improvement. The clarity of sound that we are now hearing has made the search worth while. We have listened to many systems and have had several tested at home, but none offered the same quality of sound for this price. Great value!

    After purchasing these, I would have preferred to have gone with the standard bookshelf version. These sound real nice...but you have to position them just right.

    I'm using these speakers along with the Klipsch Quintet series. They make my 7.1 system come alive.
