Klipsch WF-35 Icon-W Series Espresso Floorstanding Loudspeaker

  • 97dB
ICON Loading...

Looking for a home theater or stereo speakers that look as good as they sound? The Klipsch WF-35 is the best choice which defines the new trend of floorstanders. Compared to traditional floorstanders, Klipsch WF-35 takes up less space while still delivering dynamic and detailed sound. In addition to employing an all-new proprietary technology “XT Tractrix Horn” to reduce a speaker’s width and depth, Klipsch WF-35 also features a timeless wood veneer cabinet finished in espresso or cabernet, which uses an exotic, non-endangered Berlinia veneer from West Africa.

The WF-35 cabinet is carefully sanded, sealed, and stained (top coated with a polyurethane finish). This spray application involves 10 coats, with sanding in-between each coat to achieve the proper thickness. The cabinet is also inspected at every sanding level to ensure clarity over the stained veneer.

  • newegg Slim Stature The Klipsch WF-35 floorstanding loudspeaker features a space-saving, slim design for a perfect match with your flat-panel TV, plasma monitors and other thin-line home cinema components. The all-new proprietary XT Tractrix Horn technology can dramatically reduce a speaker’s width and depth, and all the while delivering excellent output and dispersion.
  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Klipsch WF-35 floorstanding loudspeaker boasts three 5.25" high-output, fiberglass cone woofers, a 1" aluminum diaphragm compression driver and XT Tractrix horn to deliver precise highs and amazing lows for an immersive listening experience. The XT engineering takes Klipsch’s time-proven philosophy to new heights by altering the surface geometry of the horn with four “bumps” that are shaped like flower petals. This creates a wider dispersion pattern and provides more latitude in placement.
  • newegg Magnetically Shielded The magnetically-shielded Klipsch WF-35 can be put at any proximity to display devices such as TVs and LCD monitors without loss of sound quality caused by interference.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck

Pros: Looks, size, sound, price, removable/interchangeable feet, magnetic grill

Cons: Weight, magnetic grill

Other Thoughts: I don't know enough about sound to give a fancy, schmancy review, but I can say that I believe they sound amazing.

I upgraded from an Onkyo HT system to two vintage Sony floorstanders to these WF-35s. I thought the old Sony's sounded amazing, but these are a cut above.

The highs are clean, the mids sound terrific, and even the woofers are more than adequate. Before I got my sub hooked up, I was amazed at how powerful and clear the bass was on these speakers.

I also switched out the rubber feet to the carpet spikes. It's nice having that option as I will eventually be moving them to a room with hardwood so I'll need to switch back to the rubber feet.

I have the espresso color, which is beautiful, but is incredibly hard to see except in very bright light. I probably would have preferred the cabernet, but that's just personal preference and has nothing to do with the performance of the speakers.

As a side note, I'm still using the receiver that came with my HT system--specifically the HT-R960--which puts out 130W at 8ohms. As far as I'm concerned that receiver powers the speakers perfectly, but I can't vouch for any other receiver or power output. I'm sure the speakers would sound fine with any other receiver.

Also, I listed the magnetic grill as both a pro and con for a reason. I think it's a cool design feature and certainly is quicker than the old push-in style grills, but it's also way too easy for my 1 year old to pull them off. So far it's only been by mistake (brushing past them while playing) but if she wanted to, she could easy pull them off and destroy them (far easier than if they were still attached to the speaker).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sounding speakers

Pros: Wasn't looking to spend a whole lot on a system and got these with the wc-24 center , i already had rears and the klipsch 10 inch sub along with the yamaha rx-573 amp. It really sounds nice and movies sound great.... One thing that helped mine sound better was set all speakers at small"send bass to subwoofer" and was night and day difference. They look and sound great. No regrets. Got them cheap. For the price they are very nice and you will have a system you can show off. Very loud. You will get some jaws to drop. They sound better after broke in as well. I'm just now reaching 40 hours.

Cons: Still pretty big but look good beside my 65" really flat Samsung plasma .

5 out of 5 eggs**Updated review w/ helpful advice

Pros: I posted below under the title "In depth audiophile review" and owe these speakers an updated review. After much tinkering I've found that if you have the space to get them at least 6' away from the edge of the center channel, or 12' away from each other with no center, they open way up and are not colored by the center. At 7 to 8 feet off the edge of the center they truly shine. I've never owned speakers so negatively affected by placement close to their supposedly matched center, but they are. And the center sounds far better as well. All faults melt away. while all speakers generally sound better spaced out, i believe this set has a mismatch issue with the center that makes it an absolute necessity here. It is probably crossover related as drivers are same. now i feel like they perform as beautifully as they look and if you have the room to space them out you will feel like you stole them at this price.

Cons: need a room 15' wide at minimum

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: These look and sound great! I looked at other speakers for more money that were not as good.

Cons: Little more bass, but that's being picky. Plus, paired with my sub they sound fantastic.

2 out of 5 eggsseriously lacking

Pros: electrostatic quickness and detail from the horn

Cons: lack of bass and muddy midrange

Other Thoughts: This speaker is nice looking and exciting to listen to without being overly harsh. I used a N-A-D M25 Masters Series amplifier ($3,500.00) to bi-amp the speakers. Even after playing them for hundreds of hours, there is no bottom end whatsoever. Those who have stated that these speakers have good or sufficient bass are sadly mistaken. Importantly, I listen primarily to classic rock which does not have prominent bass and I still found these speakers seriously lacking. Additionally, when played at high volume you can hear the cabinet - it is cheap particle board/plywood with flat sides and insufficient acoustic damping. These are not expensive speakers, but even at $400.00 per pair I won't keep them long term. They were a test pair since I am trying to downgrade the cost of my home theatre system - the amplifier is the only original piece I'm keeping. After this experiment, I think I'll either get a used pair of Paradigms or B&W's at or near the same price.

5 out of 5 eggsNice looking

Pros: Realy nice looking speakers. Google description, veneer is from some wood from Africa, not endangered, realy cool smooth surface, not some cheap laminate. Dark wood, but not black. Speakers so far work good.

Cons: My problem is with me- speakers are driven by neo hd by Yamaha. Good, but not special, as the media controler has it's limits. But they sound as good as ML HT. If possible, will post more after receiving next week a decent power amp and avr.

Other Thoughts: If you want not only the good soud, I'd say- speaker cabinets itself worth the price. And 200 hours of breaking in later, - it must be worth a lot to your ears(and so much less to your pocket).

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a beautifully made speaker that has a crisp clean sound. It will play at very loud levels with a modestly powered amplifier.

Cons: Compared with other recently purchased tower speakers, it seems slightly deficient in the mid-bass or lower mid-range.

Other Thoughts: I've had stereo systems all of my life but until a little over a year ago had not replaced the equipment I had been using for years. After discovering the newegg website, I purchased a large number of speakers to essentially replace everything I had in various rooms of my house. Among the speakers I bought were these Klipsch speakers, the MartinLogan 12s, and the Polk Monitor 70s. I've listened to all of them and had a chance to do some close comparisons. My overall judgment is that each of these speakers sounds very nice, is a very good value at newegg prices, and would likely satisfy most folks. For overall best value, the Polks have it. They are very natural sounding and well balanced with very good full range performance. Compared to the other two, the cabinetry is less impressive (although still fine by my standards) and they are the biggest and heaviest and least efficient. The MartinLogans also perform extremely well and have a bit more of an open sound thanks perhaps to the tweeter that's used. In very close A/B comparisons with the Polks, there were times when I thought the Polks slightly more natural sounding on certain instruments and voices, but at other times I liked the MartinLogans more. I also closely compared the MLs with the Klipschs. It was then that I noticed something missing in the upper bass in the Klipschs. However, the high end of the Klipschs is strong and impressive, and when I want to listen to music at extremely loud levels I go with the Klipschs because I know I can get to those levels without pushing my amplifier (HK 3490) too hard or risking clipping that could harm the speakers. I also use a subwoofer with the MLs and Klipschs, although I don't think it adds much. I am happy I have all of these speakers and am using all of them (although I have two of the three set up in the same room and go back and forth depending on my mood). I bought all of them based on online recommendations and based on the overall reputations of the manufacturers. I know many audiophiles would never take that approach, wanting to hear what they purchase first. However, if I had had the chance to make all of my purchases all over again after hearing all of the speakers, I'm not sure I would have changed my decisions. On the other hand, if I were forced to pick two of the three speakers, I very likely would have chosen the Polks and MLs and been satisfied (yet maybe wondering now and again how nice it would be to have the Klipschs, too.)

5 out of 5 eggsKlipsch W-35 Speakers

Pros: I have been a music enthusiast since 1966. I have also had sound systems that are above the average quality. My choice of speakers has been Altec Lansing or JBL. Until now. These Klipsch speakers are nothing short of amazing. They absolutely do not distort. Even at extreme power levels! Paired with my Onkyo amplifier I can biamp them and there is no crossover distortion. I highly recommend these speakers.

Cons: non yet
