This review is from: Klipsch Synergy F-30 Premium Dual 8" Floor-standing Speaker Single
Pros: Don’t hesitate! Sure there are other very nice options out there, but for the money (I got these for $199 each, thanks Newegg!) and even if you pay a little more it’s not likely you will match the performance of the F-30s. You’d have to pay $1000 per cabinet to match or out perform these. Don’t be fooled by the horn, it will put out all the highs AND mids you’d expect from a 3 way or even a 4 way set up. The separation is unbelievable for only having a horn (1 inch driver!) with dual 8 inch woofers. The Klipsch horn and their reputation are legendary for a reason. Not to mention they’ve been in the business longer than just about anyone else out there.
I cranked these up a little over half of what they can handle and was able to hear the music clearly and with no distortion OUTSIDE my house. That’s with all the windows, blinds and doors closed. My house is an energy efficient home, well insulated, high efficiency windows, blinds etc. In short, the F30s are capable of putting out enormous sound, with little power and no distortion. You will not be sorry.
Read the specs, these are floor standing speakers. They’re large and heavy! That’s how they’re capable of such stellar performance. Some of these guys take away a star for those reasons when it’s their own stupidity that they’re not happy with. If you’re worried about size, weight and space go buy some cube speakers. Better yet just use your embarrassing TV speakers because you wouldn’t know good sound if you heard it. :)
Cons: Surprisingly, there’s only one thing I can complain about and this complaint is to Klipsch directly. These speakers should’ve been made in the USA. Discredit to Klipsch as an American company for shipping American jobs and money overseas, but credit to China as this is the highest quality item I’ve seen from there.
Other Thoughts: These speakers are very impressive and I haven't even bi-amped them yet. They sound so good I'm not in any hurry to do so. I set them up with a C-20 (center), a pair of S-20s (rears) and an MTX 12” sub. I’m extremely happy with this set up.READ FULL REVIEW
