    I would give my opinion on my selection of these speakers. I compared R-14M and R-15M. I want to use them as surrounds to R-26f fronts. Here's the feedback 1. R-15M is visibly more sensitive (loud) and bright. The difference is high. There is not much difference in the bass response. So you need to hear them to understand if you would like the brightness (high frequency response) 2. On Volume levels 14M matches with R-26f and 15M matches with R-28f. The matching continues for the sensitivity, brightness and the overall sonic response. So i will go with 14M as i have R-26f 3. 15M is better built and pleasing, atleast from the speaker screw mounts and overall look. So if you have R-28f then you need to go with 15M. 15M is also the choice if you plan a standalone speaker (second zone). 15M can also handle more power. 4. I would like to have the high frequency response little smoother, but Klipsch fans may not accept.

    I was looking for small, wired speakers for my "old, but high end" receiver. I was replacing 3 foot speakers. Since I wanted something to replace these and not have a " high tech" home theatre system, I search long and hard. I'm in my sixties and just wanted music in my house again but I wanted something smaller that were less noticeable. These speakers pack a punch! I can't imagine anything more powerful for a mid-large sized ranch home. The sound is well balanced. For the price, I feel I bought exactly what I needed.

    Yes! These bookshelf speakers are small but they pack a nice loud punch! I was using jbl loft 30 for a while, they were a budget pair & not that bad to the ears, but i craved a little more ummph for a little more money & these did the trick! The 1inch aluminum horn tweeters do a good job at disperseing sound to create a more life like feel to your movies,music, sports, shows & gameing. & the mid level subwoofer also do a good job holding up. I would definitely pick a pair up if you are moving up but not alot of money to spend.

    I bought these to connect to an old Onkyo head unit I use for a turn table and my desktop. These are very clean and clear with great range. Don't expect booming bass or anything but it will still impress in this category. They provide room filling sound without distortions or seeming loud. I got them when they were on sale for $149.99 and would have paid full pop at MSRP. The next step up is the R15P but those are $349.99 and I'm not sure I would be able to tell much of a difference. If you are looking at these speakers just go ahead and buy them you will not be disappointed.

    Sounds great with our new amp. We were able to compare several different speaker sets in the store and this brand was recommended by the store associate, We compared various other products and these speakers sounded the best for the price range. I love that we were able to do that in the store rather than just ordering online and not really knowing what we would get. We purchased these instead of a soundbar,,,.,.much better sound and we can add other speakers as we like. Love having a separate amp and speakers that other equipment can be added to as we like.

    Went the klipsch speakers on our night stands. Amazing sound quality. These speakers rank right up their with my Boss home theater speakers I have in my living room. Want real life action or wanna feel like your in a movie theater. Hook these up the TV reciever in your bedroom. Perfect size for corner mounting near nightstands or sitting them on the corner of your nightstand. Feel the action all around you. A MUST HAVE FOR BEDROOM TV WATCHERS!

    Excellent speakers to expand home theater

    These small Klipsch speakers are great choice to use for surround speakers in a home theater system, especially if you need a couple of speakers if you are expanding your 5.1 system to 7.1. These Klipsch are also very efficient and will get loud with low power inputs. Combined with their power handling capability and Klipsch horn tweeters, they also sound good if you play music using all 7 speakers of your home theater system.

    We had purchased one of those $600-700 surround speaker systems and just were not impressed with the central and two front speakers. So little sound comes out of the rear speakers in the set, that we decided to improve the two front and central channels. These were excellent choices. Now the sound "POPS"! We get great clarify from the midrange and tweeters, while still using the base and rear speakers through our amplifier

    We bought a Sony 7.1 receiver, two of these bookshelf speakers for front L/R, and added the Klipsh quintet speakers for Center, surround and back, along with a powered sub. Works GREAT. Super clear and detailed sound. Actually happy to have a bit more speaker for Front rather than the smaller surround speakers, especially when running music and internet radio.

    Where's the bass?

    I used these speakers as surrounds and they were decent. However they had little to no low end. This would be a real problem when objects moved across the sound field to the fronts (which were Pioneer Elite atmos bookshelves. For that reason I ultimately returned them and moved the pioneers to the back

    I didn't have these speakers on my list when I went to BEST BUY to buy my new Yamaha A/V receiver, but when I realized I needed some speakers to take advantage of the 7.1 audio setup, the salesperson pointed them out, they were on sale and so they're now performing well as my new side channel speakers. Its hard to go wrong with Klipsch.

    Initially I had bought the surround speakers for my home theater. While they were nice for diffusing the sound in the rear, I missed the directional sound needed in gaming. I returned them and bought these. If you know of Klipsch horn tweeter sound and you like it, you won't be disappointed. I love them for my rear channels and they complete my little theater very nicely.

    This Klipsch R-14 bookshelf speaker delivers great sound for it's size. I am currently using this as my surround speakers and all those background noises you usually can't here coming from your tv when watching a movie or playing a video game sound so clear and crisp with this speakers. I definitely recommend this speakers to anyone and everyone.

    Very quiet dishwasher

    This dishwasher replaced a Bosch dishwasher. We had to purchase this brand because our custom wooden front fits on this dishwasher. It's very quiet. I like the third compartment for utensils on top, but my favorite feature is the light that shines on the floor while the machine is running. Now I never accidentally open the door before the load is finished.

    These speakers have great sound for the one big living room/kitchen area we have. Just loud enough, but not too crazy. We're enjoying them hooked up to the TV as well. Makes the movies sound way better. Overall I would definitely recommend these over the other choices in this size category. Tested the others and they were "just ok".

    I needed to replace busted old speaking so looked around and read some reviews. My conclusion was Klipsch are probably if not are the best on the market. They are a bit pricy...but why pay for cheap stuff that will break. I love them and the sound is pretty decent. I only have the pair, but working on upgrading all my speakers to Klipsch.

    These speakers were purchased because other reviews said they sound good and because of my previous positive experience with Klipsch. Yes they DO sound good, especially for a small speaker. They are a bit brighter than my older Klipsch KG 1's but that is to be expected. They also seem well made. I am very happy with them and recommend them.

    Klipsch has been known in the speaker business for many many years and has always been one of the best lines out there. To do that, you have to put quality and affordability into a package that delivers more than what the consumer would expect. These speakers simply outshine any other brand you'll find at your BB store.

    Great sound and quality for the price! These speakers were an upgrade to an older surround sound system. The main unit of my surround sound system is over 10 years old, but still a high performing unit. Yet, the speakers were well past their prime. The Klipsch speaker technology brought my home theatre experience back to life!

    I was looking at the b*se bookshelf speakers when the BB sales person pointed me in this direction. Skeptical, I said thanks and went home to review online. Turns out BB had some open box which came to same price as the others and these have better sound...at least to my ears, as well, the specs are better all around.
