Klipsch Quintet 5-Channel Home Theater System

KLIPSCH

When you're the best selling surround sound system of all time, performance means everything, and the fifth generation of the Klipsch Quintet doesn't disappoint. These home theater speakers utilize Tractrix® horn technology and lightweight Aluminum drivers for crisp, clear and uncompromising sound quality.

Comprised of four miniature speakers and a low-profile center channel the Klipsch Quintet home theater system incorporates decades of class-leading research and development experience. In fact it applies the same cutting-edge technology that's found in our professional cinema products.

KLIPSCH

Completely Redesigned

The Quintet's woofers have been redesigned for maximum bass output that blends seamlessly into the sound of your favorite movies, TV shows and video games.

Every piece of the Quintet system comes housed in our AcoustiComp® cabinets, ensuring a solid foundation to channel flawless sound.

KLIPSCH

Small Package, Big Sound

AcoustiComp is a material used extensively in both Professional Cinema and Music speakers. It is not only durable, it is so solid that cabinet resonance is never an issue.

The new Linear Travel Suspension tweeters in Quintet are designed for reduced high-frequency distortion while the new long-throw woofers increase bass output for a perfect blend to the subwoofer you add to the system. Those drivers are complimented by a new, "audiophile" quality crossover network which mates those two drivers perfectly.

KLIPSCH

Fits with Any Décor

The new, lower-profile design of both the Quintet satellites and center channel speaker better-match today's thinner and more aesthetic TV's whether stand or table placed or mounted on the wall (brackets not included).

3 out of 5 eggsThese are Gen IV not V

Pros: Great speakers overall.

Cons: While not explicitly noted one way or another, these are older Gen IV Quintets and not the most recent Gen V's. Gen V's are MAP priced and are not available anywhere for less than $549 or so. This set priced at $249 is because they are older and arguably not as good as the latest generation, which has a number of performance improvements.

Other Thoughts: These are still great speakers, but you should do your research regarding Gen IV vs. V's and decide if another $300 is worth it for Gen V.

3 out of 5 eggsLess than expected

Pros: Small, attractive, clear sound, durable and highly adjustable wall mounts.

Cons: Small sound from small speakers. Not robust enough to be used alone as a home theater, but also not enough range to be used alone for music.

Other Thoughts: I bought these based on so many positive internet reviews. However, I am somewhat underwhelmed. I guess I expected too much from such small speakers. I was expecting larger speaker sound from these tiny satellites. While much better than many cheap box store HTiaB's, they still leave much to be desired.
The only way these can be used as mains is if you live in a small apartment or dorm where you have strict limits on sound. This review is to forewarn others (like myself) who are expecting full-range sound from this package, which is billed as an all-in-one Home Theater....It is not. This review is also heavily based in the expectations I acquired by reading many highly rated reviews of this set.

I currently have these mounted up as surrounds and presence speakers, pushed by a Yamaha V671 receiver. I also have a 400W JBL sub and low-end horn loaded front mains. The Quintets do a very adequate job as support speakers in my quasi-7.1 setup. They are clear and bright in this application, but they are just too small to provide any substantial sound. Don't get me wrong, you can push them hard without distortion, but it's like flooring a Prius...just a bit unsatisfying. They do not provide a large enough sound field or range to be the center of attention, and they absolutely require a subwoofer.

I have good speaker wire, and everything is hooked up correctly. I have ran the YPAO calibration as well as using custom EQ settings. My sub is crossed at 120 Hz....These are just small speakers.
I have pushed them hard enough to rattle the grilles off. At this point, I just leave them off. Fortunately, they never dream of distorting, even at those levels.... A testament to Klipsch quality.
I have a pair of Klipsch WF-35s on the way to replace my low-end mains. I am hoping that these quintets will still pair adequately in their support roles.

The Quintets do a decent job during movies, TV shows, and gaming, but fall way short during music jam sessions. They are clear and tight, but dont have a full enough sound to be used for music.

The center channel is on par with the other 4, but at times it is still hard to distinguish dialog in movies, especially when paired with full size front towers. The center channel can get a little overwhelmed by larger mains, but pair well with the 4 satellites.

I have never experienced any "drooping" from the wall mounts. I followed the instructions by loosening the set screws before aligning the speakers, then tightening them in place. They are solid as a rock. I have them mounted high (close to ceiling) and aiming downward toward the sitting area. I have rattled the grilles off several times, but the speakers remain tightly planted where I set them.

In conclusion: The Quintets are small, well built speakers that are clear and durable. They are a good choice in sound restricted applications, but they need plenty of help (or upgrading) for people wanting a robust Home Theater sound. They are a nice upgrade for

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speakers

Pros: I've had these for over 1 and a half years and still love them but makes you wonder what really great speakers would sound like.The sound is really amazing but sometimes a bit brite.Like someone said make sure you have a good receiver and good wire.I can't for the life of me see how anyone could say anything bad about the sound of these speakers unless unless receiver not setup right.Make sure you have a sub because they are not made for bass.

Cons: A little brite.

Other Thoughts: For people who are having problems with wall mounting try hanging them upside down so the weight of the speaker is hanging and try two screws and make sure they are in a stud or joist.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat lil package

Pros: I've had these speakers about 6 months now and so far I've had 0 issues with these. They sound great and they mount just fine. I'm only using 2 screws in the mounts the top and bottom middle ones. I did put the rubber feet on the bottom and kinda wedged them on the screws for a tight fit with no vibration. I'm using Acoustic Research 16g wire from hhgregg "free coupon for buyin my tv there" and like I said they sound great and no complaints.

Cons: none. like other ppl have said about the mounts and the speakers dropping. TRY TIGHTENING THEM UP. And for the sound try using a GOOD speaker wire with good connectors.

Other Thoughts: I have theses in a 7.1 setup with Klipsch F-20's and a Klipsch 650watt 12in subwoofer on an Onkyo 708. sounds amazing. kinda wish I would of went with a bigger receiver but I have yet to been able to max it out without it hurting my ears anyways :)

5 out of 5 eggsTruly... Epic

Pros: I just picked up these insanely bad boys for the sale price of $290. Best deal I've ever seen.I was upgrading from a Samsung HTIB... I bought a Pioneer receiver last weekend, coupled with the Klipsch 350 powered subwoofer. I'd been thinking of adding these, and then saw the price and that was all she wrote(on sale elsewhere). Took me all of 5 minutes to switch out the old tiny speakers and wire them in. Sound is crystal clear, even when using the tuner. Tonight I'll pump up some BD movies and I'm certain it will be... truly epic.

Cons: Does not make toast. That's really it.

Other Thoughts: I did not buy is from NewEgg, but, had to share my experience

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Size, cost and box. Easy to dump.

Cons: I had these in my home for 6 days before I packed them up and sold them off. They sound like a tin can and no matter what subs you use, it won't help.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if it's just me, horns just hurt my ears and these caused fatigue within minutes. I would never buy Klipsch again. This was the second time, I wish I would have learned more the first time. No grant you, the direction I went cost me more money, but my ears are worth it.

5 out of 5 eggspowerful little things

Pros: Great performance out of a small package. I have mine paired with a Yamaha reciever and a Klipsch Sub. Easily the best home theater i have setup and i spent less than more of the people i build for.

Cons: a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Invest in nice speaker wire with these. They are worth spending a bit more on as well.

5 out of 5 eggsSpeaker mounts

Pros: I'm not sure what all the fuss is with the speaker mounts...or why you're only using 3 screws, if you're having issues. I have these mounted on the wall with 4 screws with no droop at all. (the bracket is slotted for 4 screws) They look great on the wall.

Cons: None found to date.

4 out of 5 eggsKlipsch Quintet

Pros: Great sounding speakers along with Klipsch 10 inch sub.

Cons: Exactly what other person said inregards to mounting on wall. They will droop. I cut 2 sections of rubber mounts and added them to ball swivel and then re-secured 3 screws. So far they have not drooped. Two of the speaker covers came broken as well. Sent e-mail to Klipsch no feedback yet.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Speakers, Poor Design

Pros: Great sound for the size and price. Style matches well with my TV, Tivo and other equipment. Good power handling and very clear sound at high and low volume.

Cons: Mounts are absolute junk. If you are putting these on a table you will have no problem, hoever if your wall-mounting they will not stay in place and will droop. YES i followed the instructions for anyone interested. I moved them where I wanted them and THEN tightened the three screws. I dont know how a company that makes such good speakers could ship out a product with such a major design flaw. I ended up having to use hot glue to hold the ball join in place in order to get it to stay in position. Consider this before buying.

Other Thoughts: These are great sounding speakers. Make sure you also purchase the subwoffer and a good reciever. If your wall mounting them, you may want to look at other options. Also, when I took them out of the box, the grills fell off the front os the speakers. If I had purchased these from a retail store I probably would have returned them due to poor design if not for how good them sound compared to my old set.
