        Comments about Klipsch Reference Black Standing Speaker:

        Easy to drive high sensitivity speakers. I have 125wpc avr driving them, 70/100 on the volume is about all I can take. Take the grills off and they are stunning with the copper cones. Well built, solid, and heavy. Sound quality is as expected with Klipsch, very nice. I do wonder if a midrange would benefit these, but I love the Klipsch horn and I would find hard to come up short with these speakers. If your worried about that get the RF7ii's at 3x the price.

        In reviews I've read before purchasing these, they stated you needed a lot of power for these speakers. My AVR alone pushes these beyond a point I could listen to for over 5 minutes at 70/100

            Comments about Klipsch Reference Black Standing Speaker:

            I did tons of reading on these speakers before making a purchase. ABT was great to do business with, easy payment and my speakers were in my car before I could blink.

            Now, on to the goods... If you have any concern about these not sounding awesome DON'T. While I was installing the rear legs I looked in the rear firing port and thought, "I could reach all the way in there". I reached in and felt the magnet on one of the drivers (yes the ports are that big), the magnet was huge! After I broke them in for just a bit I looked for one of my favorite movies on the DVR. I turned it up and thought I had to turn the sub down, turns out my sub was off! Amazing sound! Crisp not sloppy bass that hits you in the chest! The high's fill the whole room as well! Great speakers, great price!

              I use these speakers for movies and music. They are perfect for my room size, I have a large living room. Movies feel as if I am at the theater. Music sounds as if I am at the concert. Sound quality is crisp, clean, very enjoyable. From heavy metal to classical music and from action movies to dramas with exceptional dialogue every detail of sound is captured and transmitted for the ears.

                Playing CD's through a Discman , I wasnt impressed with these speakers . Upgrading to the NAD really set them free , I am just blown away by the sound . They are big but 2 will fit in the back seat of a 2010 civic sedan in their boxes . I think these speakers are great , [$] is a very reasonable price and is the sweet spot for Klipsh . Next pair up is over $3000 . I'd buy mine again in a second .
