Item model number
Coming from 2 x 10" Klipsch subwoofers, you can keep gain at half and hear and feel plenty of the lower end.
Mainly use this for music listening, all genres, bass is not muddy or slow, very tight and deep.
Great woofer, my neighbors love it as well.
These subwoofers are large and powerful. They move a lot of air and produce the type of bass I was looking for; tight! From classical to club music to movies they fit the bill and they look fantastic.
My only complaint is the quality of the components on the amplifier. The switches feel cheap and power cord insert is loose like something you'd find on a cheap electronic device that's made in China. Oh, btw, these are made in China.
I purchased two SPL 150 subwoofers and the quality is the same on both. It's sad considering the quality speakers Klipsch produces in Hope, Arkansas. I have Klipschorn front speakers, La Scala center, Heresy's for surrounds and of course the two SPL-150 subwoofers. I plan to add Cornwalls as the surrounds and move the Heresy's to the rear surrounds and top everything off with in Klipsch in-ceiling speakers for ATMOS.
Wow, is all I can say. Klipsch, of course. Is there anything better? Ha. $1000 each, but worth it. Get two. You'll be glad you did. Official speakers of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But I've had Klipsch for 30 years, so I knew they would be awesome.
Keepers of the sound. Klipsch advertises as "Tell your neighbors we said Hi!" Yep, this thing says hi to everyone around me. I also have a 12". My Yamaha head unit arrived yesterday. It allows you to hook up 2 subs and has dolby atmos. If you have not experienced this yet, don't wait to get a unit that will run Atmos. It's a game changer. I didn't like the 800 price, however, if you want quality, you have to pay for it. Would I buy it again? absolutely! Now to come up with the 1200 for the center speaker.....
This is a brutal subwoofer. It will reorganize your organs and reconfigure your brain. Sound is dry, precise and unforgiving. It fills my cathedral ceiling living room completely.
Why the 4 stars instead of 5 you would ask? It came damaged. the packaging consist of two styrofoam pieces (one for the top, and other for the bottom) but the protection for the sides are a simple L shaped hard cardboard stripes. I think packaging needs to be beefed up, to avoid the kind of damage you see on the attached photo. I'm still dealing with the seller to have a replacement. Other than that, best bang (pun intended) for the buck!
Was looking for great bass for my movies and music, this product exceeded my expectations.
Over the years I've managed to acquire a few pretty nice speakers. Since I'm a 2:1 fan (2 front speakers only), I hadn't put much effort into getting a powerful sub. Recently, I've been working towards improving my entertainment system for watching movies. Obviously this is where the Klipsch sub comes in.
Installation was an absolute dream. My stereo has a dedicated output for a sub which only requires one RCA cable (not included) . However, if it didn't, it still only needs 2 cables. Easy.
As others have said, this is quite a large sub. It really doesn't matter how large your room is, this sub will fill it with lows. The box seems well made. All together it's around 75 lbs. The rubber feet will not slide so pro tip here, unbox it close to where you're going to leave it.
I paired it with Bang and Olufsen red lines in front and Paradigm towers in the rear. Those speakers alone do I pretty good job handling lows, or so I thought. As soon as this speaker entered the mix, I was instantly impressed. The sound is really clean. Once you have it dialed in just right to where it takes over the lows at just the right time, you'll feel like you're sitting in your own movie theater. It also shines with music. The bass is rich and full. Definitely not flat.
Overall, this is an impressive sub from Klipsch. I've had Klipsch towers for years and I'm glad I finally ordered one of their subs. This thing can rattle the walls so turn it up and enjoy. I've never been so confident in saying, highly recommended.
I forgot to mention 3 things.
1. A typical problem with many lower priced subs is the auto on/standby feature. In many cases, the sub fails to be turned on at the correct time. Not the case for this sub. It works flawlessly. I've rarely noticed the sub turning on, meaning that it's an almost seamless transition from standby to on.
2. A word of caution. The box this sub is delivered in says exactly what it is in very large print. If you live in an area where theft is an issue, you might want to be home for this delivery. I'd hate to see someone's hard earned money walk away because they didn't know the box would be so obvious.
3. Receiver settings. I turned the sub way down at the receiver (-8.5 db) and turned the gain almost all the way up on the back of the sub. Typically you'd turn the gain down on the back of the sub. What this is doing is throttling back the built in amp. By turning it down at the receiver and up on the sub, you're getting the most out of the built in amp. This creates a much more dynamic sound. Give it a shot anyways. I think you'll be glad you did. Also, this allows you to turn the base up with your remote rather than getting up and turning the knob on the back of the sub.
Hatte vorher einen Teufel t10 sub da ich mich etwas von der Marke habe blenden lassen. Dieser war schon echt nicht verkehrt. Mit 150 Watt rms und class d verstärker kam da auch schon etwas raus. Jedoch hatte dieser eine überlast LED welche mich ziemlich hart geärgert hat da ich schon bass Fanatiker bin. Daraufhin tage mit den Einstellungen verbracht um das gewünschte Ergebnis zu erzielen. Dies hat schon ganz gut geklappt doch bei manchen Frequenzen (hauptsächlich elektronische Musik) ist dieser ausgestiegen. Darauf hin beschloss ich mir etwas neues kräftigeres zu holen. Nach langen Recherchen im Internet und hifi Zeitschriften stieß ich immer öfter auf die Marke klipsch, welche fast immer mit 5sternen bzw sehr gut bewertet wurde.
Also habe ich diesen sub bestellt. Auf einer Palette von einer Spedition geliefert ließ dieser schon echt viel vermuten. Erstinstallation ohne raumeinteilung etc dauerte ca 10 min.
Und der sub hat es in nichteinmal 10 Minuten Geschafft mich zu überzeugen. Aufeinmal kam mein Vater aus unserer 100 m entfernten halle angelaufen um Schraubenzieher aus der anliegenden Werkstatt zu holen. Als ihm diese wortwörtlich schon entgegen gehüpft kamen, stand er urplötzlich vor mir und bT mich den Bass doch etwas herunter zu regeln da er diesen schon in der Garage wahrgenommen hatte und das mit den Schraubenschlüssel ja "echt" nicht sein muss
