New and Improved

Since 1997, the Klipsch Synergy Series has been referred to as the world’s best value in high-performance entertainment. With the latest Synergy speakers, you’ll find new high frequency components, a new network structure, updated voicing and a more subdued look that blends in seamlessly with today’s living environments.


Four Laws of the Klipsch Universe

Beginning in 1946, company founder, Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. Together, these four design principles—high efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response, and wide dynamic range—have and always will be the foundation for our stunningly powerful and precise sound.



  • Every Synergy speaker utilizes our Tractrix® Horn technology for lifelike sound, more output using less energy, improved reliability, reduced distortion and a large soundstage with well-defined imaging.
  • Aluminum tweeter with linear travel suspension allows the high-frequency driver to move back and forth in a seamless motion, creating less distortion and detailed highs.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent sound

Pros: Throughly impressed with the sound quality from such an inexpensive speaker. I was lucky and got them for 129...went to 199 while in shipping. Purchased with the B20s both movies and music are terrific. Still waiting for the S20 and 12 inch sub. Even without the sub the sound is very impressive. Build quality is impressive as well regaurdless of cost they sound look and feel like I spent much more than I did.

Cons: Free shipping for rural customers not so good. Please see my review of the C20

Other Thoughts: Pleas see C20 review...or just buy want be disappointed

3 out of 5 eggsNothing Special

Pros: Smallish attractive speaker especially with front covers off . Decent bass relative to size

Cons: Flat lifeless sound. Limited definition Hyper mids, muddy highs. Playing mp3's or Pandora from Iphone through a fine vintage 65 watt RMS receiver.

Other Thoughts: Wow. Was not expecting such mediocrity. Replaced them with another brands similar speakers, at half the price, and getting much better results.

5 out of 5 eggsShocking

Pros: Very clear Highs and Mids. Impressive bass for such a small speaker. Sounds much bigger then they are.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Use the b-20's as surrounds in my 7.1. They sound amazing. Not muddy. Nice soft Highs. Of Course if your planning on using them as your main front speakers a sub would be mandatory, as with any book shelf speaker this size. Have hooked the b-20's up as my main front's to show friends how amazing they sound. They never disappoint or fail to get a "wow".

4 out of 5 eggsKlipsch B-20

Pros: Excellent sound quality when positioned directly in front of you. Decent bass response with very clear mids and highs. Not quite as bright of highs as I'd like, but still excellent sounding.

Cons: I purchased these speakers to provide ambient noise by playing music in a different room from where my home theater is set up. When the speakers are facing you directly, they sound very good, but they try to pump out too much bass to be used for ambient music. All you wind up hearing is muddy sound drowned out by overpowering mids and lows. This is the only reason I took off an egg.

Other Thoughts: I decided to use these Klipsch B-20 bookshelf speakers as my front left/right speakers in my home theater, and moved two speakers from my Energy Take Classic system to another room for the ambient music. Worked out well in the end.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

Pros: I'm using these as the surrounds in a 5.1 setup. They are significantly cleaner sounding than the Polk's in the same price range.

Overall, these are an excellent value.

Cons: The Klipsch Reference series are nicer, but out of the price range I was willing to spend.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect these to work with your typical lightweight speaker stands. These are heavy and require a pretty solid stand. The typical "holds up to 5 or 10 pounds" stands are designed for little home theater in a box speakers.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Best sound quality human ears can hear. Directionality aside, 320kbs properly mixed audio played through these speakers is no different from sounds in real life.

Four of these spaced properly in a 5.1 surround system would be a godly home theater system and being a klipsch product, they will certainly last forever. My old pair of klipsch's is going on 10 years old and sound exactly the same.

Comes with rubber footies to elevate them slightly and for grip, I only put two on the front ends of mine, to angle them up slightly towards my head.

Cons: Size. I have a couple of these but they are a few inches taller and wider and I was expecting the same, though being lazy I did not bother to measure. For almost 300 dollars you expect a bit bigger speakers than these.

Other Thoughts: I got these on sale, no way I would pay close to 300 dollars for them. But you definitely get the quality you are looking for. I have these as my front left and front right with a pair of Denon satellites as my left and right and a 100 watt 10 inch sub.
