    Best Sub I've ever owned.

    |
    Posted .

    I've owned many subs. In fact, this sub replaced my 10" Klipsch SW-450. I have to say, this sub does not disappoint! It sounds extremely deep for its size & wattage. It rumbles deep, doesn't have any hardware rattles or vibrations, but most importantly, it really compliments my other Klipsch Reference speakers. It also looks fantastic!

    Powerful bass in a small package

    Posted .

    I wasn't sure what to expect for performance when I purchased this sub-woofer, after all it is only a 10" driver, but it's from a name recognized in the speaker industry as building outstanding speakers. I was not disappointed. This sub-woofer can push out enough bass to drive you out of the room without any distortion. I have this running with a pair of R-26F's, an R-25C, a pair of R-14M's and a pair of Jensen bookshelf speakers for a 7.2 surround sound setup. WOW...absolutely amazing sound from the whole setup. I highly recommend the Klipsch speaker brand.

    Great sound from a 10" sub!

    I needed to replace our 10" powered sub that stopped working. After doing a lot of research I found for the price point that the Klipsch Reference R-10SW subwoofer was a really good deal. I was debating between the Klipsch R-10SW or maybe going to their 12" sub. The day I went to purchase the sub they (R-10SW) happen to be on sale for half price, so I got two of them. I'm love how low and responsive these 10's sound. In the pics you might see where I added a piece of black felt material on the top of each the sub boxes to prevent any reflection from movie screen glaring on the tops.

    2 is plenty

    I got a second one for the sake of symmetry (and to have something to plug into my sub 2 connection) but my living room is relatively small so now instead of one with the gain halfway, I’ve got 2 with the gain at about 1/3. Definitely a problem I like having. Oh and the gain goes up to 11, nice touch.

    In order to put it all together you got to have a Kilpsch Subwoofer. While watching a movie or listening to music this thing will turn heads to wonderland. This subwoofer will bring out sounds that you've never knew existed. POWER!!

    Deep Bass

    This Klipsch Sub is awesome for a ten inch. I have Klipsch Chorus for my mains and they are 15 inch three way. I am amazed how the 300w ten inch compliments their big brothers.. Love it!!

    I ordered 2 of these on black Friday for 1/2 price with free shipping. Can't get any better. For their size they have DEEP bass and sound great and not muddy. Klipsch says to tell the neighbors "Hi" ad with 2 of these I can definitely do that. LOL

    I was torn between the 12" and this 10", but at this price, I could get two 10"s if I wanted to. I have just one so far, and I am quite satisfied.

    Great speakers at at reasonable price

    Posted .

    I decided to upgrade my current Polk Audio system because it seemed like my 12” sub was losing its punch after having the system for roughy five years. I decided to go with these copper woven Klipsch speakers after reading all the great reviews on the net and I’m glad I did. These speakers sound awesome and they look great to boot. I spent roughly $1300 on a 5.1 system which isn’t chump change but I knew I wanted good stuff so I had to pay for it. The floor standing speakers sound so nice that they even provide a very good amount of bass on their own. Couple them to the 10” sub and things start really shaking in my house. The center channel has me hearing voices in certain movies that I never heard with my previous Polk Audio system. All in all this is one sweet system that I know I will enjoy for several years.

    Connect it to onkyo receiver and Klipsch 5 speaker satellite in my home theater room. Worth the extra $ for theater like sound . Awesome sounds for the price.

    Killer Sound! Will not disappoint.

    Posted .

    I picked up this 10" sub to match the R-15 shelf speakers I bought from Klipsch. I am truly blown away at how amazing this sub sounds! It is in a very big room that is open to 2 other large spaces in the house and it fills the space with ease. It is turned less than half way up and I like base. Would recommend it to anyone for any use.

    I mated this ten inch sub with the Klipsch twelve inch in my Man Cave Extension. This subwoofer is a nice, but it cannot go really low. All in all a welcomed addition.

    I did have a Klipsch downfire sub but my floor is hardwood on solid concrete 1st floor, sounds good but I decided to change it for this sub frontfire since it was on sale, and sounds amazing I can listen to now much better the lows and clear crisp. I trust Klipsch always. I paired with the other downfire sub, now I have the two effects the boom in the air and vibes all room. Love it

    I love this speaker but I am sure my neighbors hate it. Good clean, tight bass. If I want, I can shake the plaster off my walls on all 3 stories of my house. Used with Onkyo 805W receiver, Klipsch 6 1/2 reference series floor speakers, bookshelf rear speakers and center channel. Used mostly for music, but the theater sound is incredible.

    I gave this only 3 stars because of the price and the hertz rating at only 30hz. That is not low enough for a home theater. General public does not have this knowledge and will be fiddling with the dials on the back to try to make it deeper, and that won't do it. Jurassic Park hits below the 25hz rating in the scene with the water on the dash. You won't and can't feel the lower end bass as the T-Rex gets closer at a distance on, till it is outside the first Explorer. Also certain hip hop tunes won't hit low like they should also. If you find yourself constantly fiddling with the LFE dial, you bought the wrong sub as I did. The company with an S at the beginning and end has subs for this price below 25hz, heck even below 20hz for a hundred more. Midway also felt tinny sounding instead of the HARD, LOW bangs and thumps you expect with this price range. Like I said, I have had it for 3 years and regret not getting something more Movie and Game oriented for a theater type setup. If you catch this for half off on Black Friday, sure it will do most of what you want. If running a home theater setup and you appreciate the low end on a lot of new movies, do not purchase this.

    big sound, smaller box

    |
    Posted .

    I love the Klipsch brand. I had a Synergy 10" almost 9 years then the amp went out. I'm selling it for parts. The woofer on it was down firing while this one faces forward. I like the "copper" look of this reference series woofer even though I will keep the cover on. This enclosure is smaller but packs just as much punch. Fits nicely in the room. Minus one star because the dials on the back are not segmented to the feel when you adjust blindly. I have crossover at 80 and volume turned down to 10 o'clock. This thing is powerful! Sounds great when you balance with your current speakers.

    Best Black Friday purchase ever

    |
    Posted .

    Had been looking at replacing my entertainment center sub recently. Got a "5.1 system in a box" several years ago and have slowly replaced each component one at a time. New receiver. New front L/R channels. New center channel. Moved old front L/R to the rear surround positions. Now the old sub had always worked fine. Hit the lows, slightly rumbled the couch, did the job but nothing special. Doing some Christmas shopping on black Friday with other things in mind and BOOM...here this thing is half priced from regular. So of course did some research, read maybe 30-40 reviews, visited multiple sites to check price. Couldn't have gotten the thing cheaper anywhere and never saw anything under a 4 out of 5 review(rare) so I pulled the trigger. Kept the old sub for comparison and in case I received a faulty unit. Turned on the old YouTube, searched for "bass test" and let her rip. Old sub performed as expected; turned way up it rumbled and slightly vibrated the couch. Awesome. Then I plugged the new Klipsch in. Thought to myself "considering all the other great reviews, maybe we'll start at half speed." Turn dial to 4 (of 11) and restarted the test video. OMFG, does this thing BUMP!!!!!!! Deep, beautiful, rattling bass that blew the old sub out of the water...at LESS THAN HALF POWER!!! Whole couch rumbled, coasters floated, walls trembled, glass shattered, pets ran, ears started bleeding....no, only joking, but you get the point. This thing is awesome. Had I known what I was missing I would have replaced the old sub a while ago and would have bought this at full price if I'd heard a demo in a store!!! What I'm trying to say is the thing is amazing, don't be afraid of spending some of your hard earned $$ bc you will NOT regret this purchase. Movies take on a whole new life. Video games make you FEEL the action. Music rocks and...it's still only on 4. Maybe when I get some courage and money to fix the drywall I'll turn the dial up some more.

    Great Subwoofer for the price

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this sub-woofer to pair with the other Klipsch speakers I have connected to my Pioneer SC-91 Elite receiver. I am also using two Klipsch R-15M bookshelf speakers and a Klipsch R-25C center channel speaker, and two small Cambridge Audio cube speakers in surround mode. The Klipsch R-10SW added much needed bass depth to the system. My room is approximately 14' X 28' and there is plenty of bass. I wish it went a little lower to get to the minimum 20Hz range of human hearing but 30Hz is good for now, especially for the price. Setup was simple, especially when using the Pioneers Microphone setup to optimize the output of the Sub woofer based on where I placed it within the room.

    My first component home theater system - worth it!

    |
    Posted .

    For the past few weeks, I've been looking to upgrade the sound system in my man-cave after getting my wife her Sony x900f TV and Z9F soundbar with rears. They sound amazing. In my room, I had a Yamaha YAS-207 soundbar that is less than a year old. I wanted something else that we could build a small theater room with later. I went to a local Best Buy and came across an open-box Onkyo TX -NR676 for $260. When I saw it, my prayers were answered. I bought the receiver and thought about what speaker will I add to it. I went back and forth with Sony and Klipsch. I knew the sound I got from the Sony speakers at home but I have always been interested in Klipsch. I sat and listened to both and read numerous reviews - customers and experts. I eventually settled for the Klipsch. The sale price helped the decision. At 50% off, they were cheaper than the Sony speakers. I bought the two R-26F towers and this 10" sub. I also did the banana plugs - not a fan of bare wires. Once I got everything together and calibrated the speakers, I was blown away! The sound was amazing! I streamed a couple movies and I enjoyed it so much. I streamed some music (70's soul music) from Pandora and was extremely happy. I played a few games of Madden and I have no complaints. I did have to turned down the sub because my daughters bedroom is on the other side wall from where I sit. She is going to kill me in my sleep if I kept it where it was. I later bought the center channel from Amazon because it was way cheaper. In the near future, I will be buying the bookshelfs and Atmos speakers. I don't have the full effect of what my wife has yet and I think that will put me there. I had been looking a Klipsch for awhile but I could not justify the cost. At 50% off, I could not pass it up.
