Product Details

Klipsch 5.1 Channel Home Theater Black Speaker System, Model HDT500BK

This compact, high-definition home theater system is simple to set up and use. It consists of four identical speakers for main and surround sound use, a center channel for precise dialogue and a subwoofer for heart-thumping effects. Each main and surround speaker is a sealed enclosure finished in high-gloss piano black with a 2.5-inch IMG woofer and a MicroTractrix Horn-loaded 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeter inside. The magnetically shielded center channel—so it won’t interfere with your TV picture—shares the same durable, high-quality attributes, except it employs dual woofers.

  • Premium 5.1 speaker system, perfect for medium-sized rooms
  • Center channel delivers precise dialogue
  • Subwoofer generates deep bass you can hear and feel
  • Clean, modern design looks great next to any flat-panel TV

    Comments about Klipsch 5.1 Channel Home Theater Black Speaker System:

    To think I was going to buy a Bose surround system. I'm so glad I found this system. To think I was going to buy a Bose surround system. I was turning my family room into a theater room. I am completely satisfied with this system. I have it running off a Pioneer VSX-1021 and it is the best sound I have ever heard. It completely rocks the house and is crystal clear weather watching TV, a movie, video games, or music. I will definitely buy Klipsch speakers from now on.

    Purchased,Installed,Amazing! I had purchased the Klipsch 500 for my bedroom(16x14). Could not believe the crystal-clear sound I received after powering them up. The subwoofer rattled the nick-nacs off the shelves. There was absolutely No distortion from any of the speakers what so ever. I was amazed cause Ive spent double on other brands, and they dont even compare! I will be purchasing another set for Living Room! Love Em! Great Job Klipsch for putting out an Amazing Set of Home Theater Speakers!

                Connected to Onkyo HC160. Surprising power from subwoofer. Better for movies/TV than music but still a crisp sound that easily fills the room.

                Prompt delivery, nicely packaged.
