Klipsch WS-24 Icon-W Series Cabernet Surround Speaker

  • 82Hz-23kHz
  • 8 Ohms 75W
  • 91 dB ± 3 dB
ICON Loading...

The WS-24 is for those who want home theater speakers that look as good as they sound. When compared to traditional surround speakers the WS-24 is more refined taking up less space while still delivering the signature high-output low-distortion sound.

Klipsch engineers managed to generate excellent output and dispersion from this slim speaker by employing an all-new proprietary technology called the XT Tractrix Horn. XT engineering advances the company’s classic, proven technology to new levels of sophistication by altering the surface geometry of the horn for a wide, consistent soundstage. Also, through exclusive Wide Dispersion Surround Technology, or WDST, the WS-24 provides crystal-clear sonic detail in listening areas with less-than-ideal configurations.

Stunningly beautiful, the WS-24 features a timeless wood veneer cabinet finished in cabernet. While most of the speakers in this category feature domestic veneers, the WS-24 has an exotic, non-endangered Berlinia veneer from West Africa. The WS-24 cabinet is carefully sanded, sealed and stained. Much like in high-end furniture manufacturing, the stain is then top coated with a polyurethane finish. This spray application involves 10 coats, with sanding in-between each coat to achieve the proper thickness.

  • newegg Superior Sound Quality The Klipsch WS-24 boasts dual 4.5" (11.4 cm) high-output, fiberglass cone woofers, a 1" (2.5 cm) titanium diaphragm compression driver mated to a 3.75" 80 x 80 round Tractrix(r) horn to deliver precise highs and amazing lows. The XT engineering takes Klipsch’s time-proven philosophy to new heights by altering the surface geometry of the dual horns. Enjoy enveloping surround sound and precise localization.
  • newegg Wide Dispersion Surround Technology Exclusive Wide Dispersion Surround Technology, or WDST, allows the WS-24 to create a smooth, high dispersion pattern, providing crystal-clear sonic detail even in listening areas with less than ideal configurations. So, no matter where you sit, this speaker promises to draw you into the middle of the action.
  • newegg Stylish Design Sporting a timeless wood veneer cabinet finished in cabernet and slim design, the Klipsch WS-24 is a perfect match with your flat-panel TV, plasma monitors and other thin-line home cinema components.
  • newegg Wall Mountable With keyhole brackets, the Klipsch WS-24 can be mounted on the wall easily and effortlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speakers

Pros: Perfect mounting angle. No vibrations. Beautiful to look at. And an incredibly crisp and clear sound. At the sale price, it's a great bargain for a pair. Even at full price, I'd call it a reasonable purchase.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Reviews from people who don't own the product shouldn't even be allowed here.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME DEAL

Pros: 1) - Klipsch quality in the cabinet construction, as well as the rich sound these speakers provide.
2) - I ordered (2) sets of speakers, for a total of (4) speakers purchased. All (4) speakers arrived at my home in “scratch free “condition, in 100% working condition, and with all hardware and printed instructions included.
3) – Cabinet has no rear speaker porting, so they are able to be mounted flush to a wall. This design is great if you have a couch or bed sitting in between (2) speakers mounted to the wall. The sound is directed to the sides of each speaker cabinet. The cabinet design does adequately mount flush to a wall.
4) – I replaced my Klipsch WB-14 bookshelf front/rear surround speakers with the WS-24’s. A single WS-24 is comparable to (2) WB-14’s, component wise. These speakers (WS-24) could very well be used as “front” main speakers, they sound that good.
5 – Klipsch customer support. I’ve used both phone and e-mail support services, and have been treated with quick and courteous response to all inquiries.

Cons: -Pricing-. I purchased my first set in early November during a “Black November Deal “promo, which I confused with the “Iron Egg” lowest price guarantee promo. 8 days after my first purchase the price was reduced again. Newegg does not guarantee lower pricing, unless the product has the” Iron Egg” shield logo demonstrated on the sales page. The lower price was significant for (2) speakers, which caused me some- angst-. Yet upon reflection, I have benefited from numerous Newegg.com product deals throughout the past few years, and my first set of WS-24’s was a good deal anyway. The second set was an awesome deal.

I want to thank Newegg customer support for their courteous and professional responses to my price matching request. It did not go my way, yet I still continue to shop here at NE due to folks such as you.

Other Thoughts: When reading the specs (details) on theses speakers, a single WS-24 has the same components inside as (2) Klipsch WB-14’s, with the exception of the crossover. The WS-24 is rated at 75 watts, yet I found their sweet spot to be with 100-125 watts of power, as like the WB-14. These are excellent front/rear surround speakers.

The entire Klipsch ICON series of speakers is being retired, and the WS-24 (Cabernet) is listed in Newegg’s “Clearance” department as well. This is the last chance to purchase these speakers, so if you find the price agreeable, don’t hesitate to purchase them. Thanks to Newegg pricing, I now own the entire ICON line of speakers, including the RW-12d sub woofer, and it’s a killer sound setup.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't listen to that other guy.

Pros: I have owned these speakers for about a year, wall mounted, and have none of the issues that the other guy assumes he would have. The speakers come with bumpers you can place on the speaker to match the offset of the keyhole wall mounts. Super easy installation and they look wonderful in my home theater room. They lay perfectly flat on my walls and look/sound amazing. These are an incredible bargain!

Cons: absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Don't listen to the other review on here. Honestly, who reviews something if they don't even own it and then speculates as to how they would mount to a wall?

3 out of 5 eggsOversight in design

Pros: Looks beautiful, good design, Klipsch quality

Cons: Wall mounting not very thorough?

Other Thoughts: I don't own these, nor do I plan to. However looking at the pictures, it seems these have an obvious flaw when mounted to the wall.

The keyhole mounts project from the rest of the back surface. This will automatically tip the speaker down.

Also there is no padding or isolation on the back to prevent vibrations from transferring to the wall it's mounted on. My bookshelf Yamaha's that are being used as surrounds have small pieces of thick foam pad that both prevent rattling/vibrations and extend the bottom of the speaker out to sit level and flush with the keyhole mounts.

Sure, you can add your own foam pad, but at this price, you shouldn't have to.
