    Great value, a tad directional

    Pros mentioned:
    Price, Sound quality, Space

    I got these half off during the Black Friday promotion. At half price they are an exceptional value. I personally bought two pair to use as side and rear surround speakers, in conjunction with higher grade Klipsch Reference Premier RP-250F front and RP-450C center speakers. They fill this role well, with very similar sound completing the sound stage for gaming and movies. I've also seen these demo'd in a store playing rock and roll tracks in a 2.1 configuration as primary front speakers along with a subwoofer. I was shocked at how much volume they put out into the large open space and sounded great paired with a sub. My only reservation is I will say Klipsch seem pretty directional. If I walk from my open concept living room into my kitchen, there is a change in the character of the sound once you aren't 'in the zone'. Your experience may vary depending on your room characteristics. The attached picture shows how their similar dimensions and design compares to the RP-250F.

    Just what I needed given the allotted space my wife gave me. My set up is Dish TV, Yamaha rec/amp, new LG Nano 65” & these speakers. A great compromise between full floor standing & a sound bar. Music good enough for what I want & “theater” experience is very good.

    I purchased these as surround speakers to complete my 5.1 setup. I have them sitting atop Sanus 24” stands for medium sized speakers. Places them at a perfect height for sitting on the couch.

    I decided to buy these even when I could not select the R-51Ms independently on the display in my local Bestbuy. I got them home, hooked them up, and was blown away. I did get the 10" R-100 sub-woofer to round out the sound, but even by themselves, the R-51Ms have an incredible dynamic range and can keep pace with very heavy music and bass lines without distorting. For $217.00, I'm hard-pressed to find any other bookshelf speaker that will stand up to this superb example of modern audio craftsmanship. Good job, Klipsch!

    Pros mentioned:
    Price, Sound quality

    I purchased these R-51 M speakers as a rear channel for my home theater system. They are replacing my Bose Acoustimass 10 system. With only these connected and using the Klipsch RP-404C Center Channel, the sound is phenomenal. It's like I bought an entirely new system. There is a very noticeable sound quality difference. I'm running them through the Onkyo TX-NR656 amplifier. Also purchased at Best Buy. At this moment my sub and front speakers have not arrived. I purchased these through Best Buy's "open Box" program at a deep discount. They look and sound new. Keeping in mind I would have removed them from the box anyway to connect them. Best Buys loss is my gain, Thanks Best Buy. There is one drawback . Best Buy does not offer any reasonably priced speaker stand to match these speakers. Nor does Klipsch. I can live with that. I'm fairly handy so I will just make a custom set. This is necessary for my application. As stated these are my rear channel speakers. The connection is very simple. No degree needed. If you can screw a tire valve cap on, you can connect these with out difficulty. They weigh eleven pounds each. So rather than chance many of the stands offered and having my speakers crash to the floor I feel this to be my best option. Would I recommend these speakers? By all means. This is a reasonably priced, high quality addition most would be proud to have in their system. One final thought. Don't pass by those "open box" offers. You get good first quality at a reduced price when available.

    Pros mentioned:
    Sound quality, Space

    I pounced on these when they became available at a reduced price, so they sound even more sweet. The Klipsch R-52C has the same 1" horn tweeter and two 5.25" woofers, which create a seamless front soundstage in my wide but shallow entertainment space. I had been using 3 pairs of smaller speakers with a .75" tweeter and 4" woofers, with a matching center, for a 7.1 system. While they were great for separation, even with a subwoofer they lacked warmth and power. What the Klipsch front end changed for me was no longer having to ride the volume; smaller speakers with muddy dialog had forced me to crank it up, making explosions too loud. Now dialog is crisp, volume is set and forget, and I no longer feel like I'm missing any of the soundtrack. I'm using two pairs of non-matching smaller bookshelf speakers for side and back surrounds, but at least woofer size matches. In a small space like mine, floor-standing fronts would be too much.

    Pros mentioned:
    Price, Sound quality

    I needed some speakers to use for rears that would somewhat match tonally with my Klipsch RP-150m fronts and RP-500C center. I was on a budget and got these for half price Black Friday. Timbre matching is not as critical for the rear speakers but these seem to be voiced similarly to the Reference Premiere line. Even when I listen to my SACDs in 5.1, the music pans from front to rear, the speakers blend in perfectly. Only complaint is on stock photos, there appears to be a keyhole on the back to hang the speakers on the wall. There is no keyhole on the back of the speakers so you have to come up with your own mounting method if you need to hang them. The magnetic grille covers are a nice touch that's rare in the price range. I appreciate the full size tweeter horn vs the smaller ones used on the previous R-15M, it really improved the tweeter dispersion. Really great speakers for the price that sound bigger than they are.

    I have bought eight of these matching speakers for my 7.2 surround sound receiver (165 watts per channel). Althought, I have only six of them connected, the other two are waiting on me to buy a 9.2 surround sound receiver in the near future. I bought this Klipsch speaker to match up with my Klipsch powered subwoofer and Klipsch center speaker. This speaker produce the clear perfect sound that I wanted even at high volume.

    Best Sounding Bookshelfs

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Sound quality

    over the course of several years I have heard tons of different bookshelf speakers. I would say that probably most people's home theater systems are built with bookshelf speakers. they give you the flexibility of placement that floorstanding speakers cannot and give you as good or sometimes better quality than some floorstanders. most of the bookshelfs I have had in the past have typically been 4.5 inch woofer bookshelfs. So usually on the smaller size. So when I received these I was a bit worried they would be too big as these were 5.25 woofers. I was pleasantly surpised at how compact the speakers were and how good they look. They also sound awesome, and I they sound great as left and right speakers. I use them as surrounds in my system but if someone wanted them for their fronts they would work great for that. If you are looking for some great bookshelf speakers for a home theater or to listen to music you cant go wrong with these.

    Mounting

    So I received these last week, and I’m just now opening the box to realize it’s completely different from the picture than what I have. I mean it’s not really a big issue because I’m not one to mount stuff, but if you’re looking to, then I suggest looking somewhere else or deal with it. I’ll never go with anything else other than klipsch. It’s just super weird that the ones I received don’t have the mounting hole to it as the one in the picture. I put a picture from the Best Buy app to my picture to show you.

    For such a small speaker, this make big, beautiful noise. Klipsch is the standard bearer in my opinion, and growing up hearing my uncle’s ginormous Klipschorns at both ends of his living room. Proud to have these (along with my Bose 301s) hooked up to my ‘Quadrophonic’ system.

    Very pleased with these Klipsch bookshelf speakers. They are used as surround speakers in our home theater. We were fortunate to pick them up on sale at Best Buy. Quite a savings over the MSRP. They sound great and would also work very well in a small stereo system. Very efficient and clear sounding speakers with acceptable bass response. They are small so don’t expect wall shaking bass tones. They are pretty accurate down to 60 hz. Add a small subwoofer if you need to feel the very low bass tones. Magnetic attachment grills are a very nice touch.
