    I purchased two of these towers as part of a full 5.1 home theater makeover. All the speakers, including the sub, are Klipsch Reference series. For reference I coupled these R620F towers with the R34c center channel, and two R-51M bookshelf as the surround/rear speakers. The subwoofer was the R120SW. They are all connected currently in a 7.2 Denon receiver on 14 gauge wire. I plan to maybe expand to a 7.1 system in the future. Back to the R620F Towers. I have been nothing short of impressed with their performance. I done my research before this big investment, and considered other brands. I compared them hard against the Polk Audio signature series system, which is comparatively priced. My goal in this was to get a solid sounding system but to do so at around $1500 total investment, so that was my rough budget. After lots of research online, I went in the store to listen to them both in person. Both systems sounded good, and I wouldn't say either was just over the top better than the other. So why did I go with Klipsch? I just liked the way they looked, the construction, and I love their product model structure for their speaker systems. These things are just gorgeous to look at and look fantastic in my home. Once I got them home and got everything hooked up, I done extensive testing and calibrating. I am a perfectionist so I have invested a lot of time in this project to make sure every element was as good as I could make it. Its hard to talk about the specifics of the sound they produce because it will vary some based on your receiver. I had read however that some people hated the Klipsch horn style tweeters. The common complaint was that it would "make your ears bleed". I have never felt this in my testing with these speakers. With my 7.2 denon receiver I would describe the sound as tight. They sound strong even at higher volumes with some demanding music. They even give a good rumble of bass in the 40-80hz range. The tweeter is also very strong. The speakers have a great balance between low and high frequency and neither I felt overpowered the other. A great, balanced tower I would say. To the first timers who my read this, make sure you set your crossover on these at 40hz. Do not set them as full range towers. Their low end frequency response is 38hz, and despite how good they are, we are only dealing with 6 1/2" woofers here. If I set these to full range in my set up, I lose a lot of bass in my system, as the receiver sends more low frequency sound to the mains, and away from the subwoofer. This was the case on both an Onkyo 7.2 reciever (which died in 5 days and had to be replaced by the denon) and the Denon 7.2 receiver I am using now. 40hz crossover is the sweet spot for these. They sound fantastic when you put all the pieces together. Ive not had any complaints at all with these, and I got them on sale for 179.99 each, and at that price I just dont know how you beat this quality. One final shoutout to bestbuy for being so accommodating. The store I got these from only had one in stock (apparently this is common, to only have one tower of each in stock from talking to the employees) but they had the 2nd tower overnight shipped to my house at no additional charge. That is a 50 pound package overnighted for free via UPS. That may be standard for them but I was just a little impressed. I just felt that they wanted to make sure I got the final piece of my system as fast as possible. I took the rest of the full system home with me that evening, as it was all in stock in the store.

    Great Floor speaker option

    I have this 400W standing floor speaker combined with the two book shelf speakers, a subwoofer and a center speaker. All are Klipsch in the same Reference Series. When testing this speaker, I did it in combination with the speakers I listed, as well as independently to see how it sounds alone. As a group, the speakers worked well together. The well balanced highs, mids and bass really sound great. The speaker contains 2 6.5 subs and a really strong tweeter. There is not mid range speaker, but as you can see by the other speakers I have in the set up, I have that covered with some of the other speakers. At first glance, the speaker is very attractive. It has a nice black faux wood look, and matches the rest of the speakers. The grill looks great and does not hamper the performance. This is the 400W model, not the 600W you see in the Magnolia section of Best Buy. It is more than sufficient for my set up and really provides the front end sound I wanted to compliment the grouping of speakers. I don’t feel I needed more, and after installing everything I still feel the same way. When I tried it by itself, obviously I don’t get the same balanced sound out of the double subs and tweeter, but it sounds pretty well balanced for what it is. I thought the subs would really overpower the tweeter, but the tweeter is really strong and really puts out some power. I am very happy with this choice, and I like the sound a lot. Running this off a Onkyo receiver that has 4K compatible sound, I really like the results of the set up. Alone of grouped with the other speakers, this is a great set of speakers for the above average audiophile. For my man cave, I love the set up and now I can watch what I want or listen to what I want with extreme quality sound. I can turn up the volume as loud as I am comfortable doing, and they stay clear with no issues to note. I definitely recommend it someone that wants either a solid performing group of speakers in the front of their system. Something you don’t mind seeing that is. Some people like their speakers small and hidden, and others like to show off their system visually as well as with the sound. This is definitely the latter choice. These things simply perform and you will love them. I really don’t think I need the 600W model and it would have required more power to get the optimal performance out of it. As I stated before, I think this will work well for my set up.

    These Klipsch Reference Series R-620F Dual 6-1/2" 400-Watt Passive 2-Way Floor Speakers are awesome! Flat out, amazing performance. Klipsch is a brand I’ve only recently come to know of, surprisingly, since they’ve been in the acoustic business for 70 years now. On the bottom of every piece of speaker equipment is the company’s logo, along with their ‘motto’ which reads - “Designed and engineered with pride in Indianapolis.” The Klipsch new Reference Series line of speakers has really impressed me. These are quite simply a quality product. Well-designed inside and out. You definitely get your money’s worth here. A few incredible features of these Klipsch floor speakers include: the 1-inch aluminum tweeter, which minimizes distortion; the two 6.5-inch spun-copper woofers which provide deep, vibrant bass; and from the square Klipsch ‘signature’ Tractrix horn flows clean, natural sound, filled with clarity and power. My own experience with the Klipsch Reference Series speaker system was in pairing them with an Onkyo Receiver. Setup went smoothly, for the most part, with time and effort spent arranging my new home theater components about the room to best effect. As for how these Klipsch speakers look ... well, no worries there. The black, textured, wood-grain vinyl exterior gives these speakers a modern, classy, ‘high-end’ appearance, along with being scratch-resistant. I’ll say it again ... I am really, really impressed. Overall, not just by the quality of workmanship, not merely by the ‘expensive’ look of the units themselves, but mostly, by the outstanding performance of these Klipsch R-620F floor speakers whose full, rich tones which will immerse you in layers of beautiful sound. I highly, highly recommend!!!

    My family and I love good audio systems. We love having a great home theater system and adding these to them was a good decision. I have used these for music (from Beethoven to Drake), gaming (Overwatch), and movies. These play like a champ. I was honestly concerned that 6.5 inch drivers would be too small, but these can still fill the room! The clarity of these speakers is their biggest strength. I really loved the lows and the mids! I think the highs were great as well. I know that they tend to be what people complain about the most with Klipsch speakers but they don't tend to bother me. In fact, I actually like the crispness and brightness of them, but I would definitely go in and try to listen if you have the chance because they're obviously not for everyone. They look beautiful. I don't even put the grills on them because man they look great. They have that modern feel and definitely makes my setup look elegant. So these are not quite as powerful as the older brother 820f with the 8 inch drivers. If you really want more explosive sound, you really can't go wrong with the 820f. However, these are still very good and produce excellent sound. All in all, I think these are a great addition to any home theater/audio system.

    I read reviews and listened carefully to various speakers in this price range before pulling the trigger. Klipsch speakers are extremely efficient and don't need much power to make robust, crisp sound. I don't believe better pair of speakers can be found for anywhere near the price. The Geek Squad set them up perfectly, along with a compatible front Klipsch speaker and subwoofer, and a pair of bookshelf speakers to provide true surround sound. It's all tied together through a Denon Receiver. The system is set up such that at low volume most of the sound - dialogue - comes through the center speaker. At moderate volume, you start to hear the rest of the system, and a rich movie-theater like sound. Like rock concerts? At high volume this system replicates the experience amazingly well. In fact, I feel like the "TV room" now needs soundproofing because these puppies can be heard throughout the house when turned about 3/4s up. I can't imagine why a normal house would need, or it's non-viewing occupants tolerate, more sound than this system provides. We are very pleased with Best Buy, their Geek Squad, and especially, the Klipsch speakers.

    My first real foray into the higher quality speaker realm and now I’m ruined! I can never return to speakers for peasants! These replaced some old KEF fivetwo model 11 speakers in my home theatre system that were sounding really tinny. They ticked two boxes that are very important to me in a speaker, they must sound amazing and be somewhat reasonably priced (on sale). These woke up my lackluster home theater system! I thought I was going to have to replace all of the components, receiver and all but it turns out I was never tapping the potential of the receiver until I got these speakers. I purchased the 12” sub as well and I plan on getting a nice 6”+ center channel and a couple satellites as I find them on sale. I highly recommend if you want to add depth to your HT. The black wood veneer is beautiful as well and the copper subs are beautiful to me. I’m very happy with these

    I live in an apartment with some pretty cool neighbors that never complain. I hope these speakers don't change this. I'm fairly new at real home theater and have been using various soundbars for the last several years. It's actually been many years since I set up a receiver with real speakers. These speakers sound fantastic at any volume. The whole system I'm using now are Klipsch speakers with an Onkyo TX-NR686 Atmos receiver. I'm currently running it at 5.1.2 The width and height of these speakers is perfect for my living room. Not overwhelming in size at all and they are absolutely beautiful with the covers on or off but specifically with them off to show off the copper speakers.

    frequency response issues made them annoying

    for each benefit there was a drawback. yes the horn is fairly detailed, but the frequency response is uneven, with peaks that become strident easily. yes the bass was punchy and good for the speaker size, but it was also very uneven, weak at the bottom, and weak at the top of the range. the dynamics were not nearly as dramatic as the claimed sensitivity suggests, but then, several reviews disputed the high sensitivity claims of the manufacturer. i bought them to use with a low power amp, but the sound quality wasn't worth it. very good looking, though, if that's a deciding factor. for me it wasn't. I wanted to like the speakers, but they wouldn't let me.

    These speakers really make you question if you want to spend money to go out and watch a movie in theaters or simply just stay home and watch your own in the comfort of your own home in better quality. They’re banging! You seriously don’t have to turn it all the way up and your movie/show etc is crystal clear! I love them. Best possible investment in speakers. And quite a steal considering each one goes for $448 before taxes or so and I got 2 of them for $380 after taxes. If you can wait on buying a sound system and want the best quality in your home... go for Klipsch speakers. If you buy a good set and position them correctly you feel like your in the movies.

    The Klipsch R620F reference II Floor standing speakers are a great addition to my home theater setup. First off build quality is premium on these floor standing speakers from the finish to the signature copper speakers to the copper colored screws. They look really good, they sound even better. I have these hooked up to several other Klipsch speakers and they do not disappoint. I also love the magnetic speaker grills which come off and attach effortlessly.

    In all honesty, writing reviews for the Klipsch products I've purchased is somewhat tedious, since I can't even find fault in any of their products and I run out of superlatives to use to describe them... so, in short, it's Klipsch quality, which is always fantastic, crystal clear, and haven't had a Klipsch product fail on me! That means, whenever I upgrade the family room, or my office, the older Klipsch products end up being used elsewhere in the house, since I've never had any of them burn out! Ya can't go wrong with these, tho9ugh if you want a bit more punch you could move up to the 820 series.

    Incredible front speakers for the money

    I matched these front's in our living room with an RC 62 center speaker. I set the dispersion to wide since our room is 18X20. The center is crossed at 80 which seemed to be the magic #. I played with the freq of these. Women people said cross at 80 also and let the woofer handle sub 80's. I send 120 to the woofer and cross at about 100. For these I found that 50 is the perfect balance of response that is of substance, not tinny or tiny. Bought these for 50% off and I couldn't be happier.

    Years ago I had some HUGE floor speakers that gave me very "realistic" sound - I primarily listened to orchestral works - those speakers degraded over time to the point that individual woofers & tweeters could not be replaced. Those speakers were discarded and for awhile I used some others that I had but they were not adequate. These Klipsch speakers deliver exactly what my room (which is not huge) needs to reproduce that sound. Even if I have the chance to turn the volume up they sound wonderful with no distortion. Happy, happy listening both orchestral works AND modern acoustic.

    I have always been a Klipsch guy and can't believe that I found these speakers on sale at half price. I was going to add a center speaker but no need because they sound great just as they sit. Actually it sounds like it has a center speaker connected to my system. They sounded so crisp and clear that even my lady fell in love with them so I also bought her a pair as a gift.

    These speakers sound amazing. Some people say that Klipsch has really 'bright' highs but I personally like it. It makes me feel like I'm a part of the action. These replaced a set of Fluance floor speakers that I've had for about 10 years. I really thought it would take a pair of high end speakers to sound better than my Fluance speakers but these on sale were a no brainer.

    We purchased this speaker along with Klipsch center speaker and some smaller shelf speaker (and a subwoofer) to go along with an LG OLED TV. The sounds associated with the 4k movies (as well as blu-ray and DVDs) is amazing. I purchased a complete 5 speaker Klipsch speaker and matched it a Sony Bravia about 8 years ago and thought that sound was great; but this new system is much better with the rich sounds coming from all speakers.

    I moved from smaller, Polk Audio satellite speakers to these and the difference in sound quality is absolutely amazing. With Klipsch, you are paying for the name just a bit but I think it's totally worth it with the quality of sound that they produce. Re-watching movies that we've seen in the past just so we can pick up the extra sounds in the background that were not audible before. Great, great speakers!! Don't hesitate!!

    These speakers were on sale at half off, so finally somewhat affordable. I have a small computer speaker set and they sound great, so I wanted to try these. They are very precise and clear! They do great for music and movies. I can hear movie dialogue much better now. The only negative for me is that they are pretty large. I would highly recommend these.

    Never had front speakers in our main living room, was listening to sound thru rear which sounds weird but it beat the tv speaker on Samsung. Anyway, set up 4.1 (still need center) and love it. Have turned volume up to 70 (max is 90 on Denon AVR 2500X). Sound great, crystal clear. Don't really even hear the sub kick in much, the towers drive a lot of bass. No regrets.

    These three-way speakers deliver the full range of sound that one would expect from floor-standing three-way speakers. I heard notes in music and nuances in vocals I didn't existed. Excellent base so no subwoofer would be needed. Unfortunately, these speakers were just too big for my small living room. If you have the space, these would be an excellent choice.
