Klipsch Icon KF-28 Dual 8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent full range speakers for a budget price. 12/29/2016

This review is from: Klipsch Icon KF-28 Dual 8" 2-way Floorstanding Speaker (Each)

Pros: Produce good bass response for most music.
Look good.
Smother horn tweeter than some other Klipsch.
Good price.

Cons: Fairly large size (only negative if you have space limitations).
Feet are kind of cheap.

Other Thoughts: Got these for $150/each and at this price they are a great value. I'm typically not a fan of horn loaded tweeters, but the KF-28 horn is smoother and not nearly as harsh as some other Klipsch offerings. With 35Hz extension, I use these 2 channel for music and they sound great, with depth and clarity. A good sub capable of 20Hz is still recommended for movies, however. I would consider these to be better than similar priced JBL or Polk speakers. Of course, these Klipsch speakers were originally priced much higher while still in production. Get them while you still can. You won't be disappointed.

JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very good towers wen on sale. 09/21/2015

This review is from: JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)

Pros: Good sound quality from multiple drivers. Tall enough that the tweeter is close to ear level when seated. Good deal when on sale.

Cons: Slender design makes them look a little odd. Woofers on the sides of the cabinet can be a sound issue if you are placing them in tight areas.

Other Thoughts: First off, these aren't high quality speakers that will blow you away. The Loft line is a budget line of speakers which are over-priced at their retail price tag. There's no way I would pay over $400 for a pair of Loft 50's. I rated these 5 stars/eggs based on the sale purchase price of $169. The speakers sound good enough for most people and if your receiver has EQ ability, then can sound even better. Don't pay over $200 for these, as the Infinity Primus P163 towers go on sale for $99 each and those are a step above these Loft 50's.

JBL SP150 10
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Not a worthwhile purchase 09/21/2015

This review is from: JBL SP150 10" 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer

Pros: Price when it's on sale. Decent looking cabinet.

Cons: Can't deliver low LFE in movies. Cabinet rattles and there is port noise when the sub is pushed very hard. It's just not a good subwoofer.

Other Thoughts: Rated only down to 35Hz, this isn't a subwoofer you should ever consider for home theater applications. If it's for music only, you may be able to get by with it, just don't drive it very hard or you'll get distortion, port noise and the cabinet might even rattle. I was very disappointed with this sub and wouldn't recommend it. It's currently on sale for under $100, so that does make it a bit more appealing for those on an extremely tight budget. If you can afford more, the Klipsch sub-12hg goes on sale often at a competitor for under $200. That is a far better sub.
