Reviews around system (5.00 of 5)

  • I think for the system to sound great I need to add a subwoofer
  • The sound is very clean with a pretty good amount of mid bass for just being a single drive, for the money you cannot go wrong if you are looking for a very clean sounding compact speaker system with a ton of connection options
  • Exceptional sound from a compact package, couple with a small 10” Klipsch subwoofer and you have a powerful system with great audio quality for less than a portable Bose speaker.
  • I paired this system with a klipsch 12 inch sub and enjoy lots of bass; but there has to be balance, and the R-15PM speakers have no balance.
  • I've sold off most of my equipment since our last move and now interested in updating and simplifying my audio system.

Reviews around buy (5.00 of 5)

  • I purchased a pair of the R-15PM speakers from Best Buy and I have to say I am extremely pleased with the sound quality, build quality, and overall power of the speakers
  • A sound bar and sub combo should do the job in that regard, and I'd personally recommend this one based on what I've listened to: https://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-SB3621n-E8M-Sound-System-Black/dp/B072Q6QNSG/ref=sr_1_7?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1535923988&sr=1-7&keywords=sound+barAnyway, as I was testing the different sound bars, I happened to notice Best Buy's "open box item" section where speakers and tvs were haphazardly stacked
  • A representative at Best Buy described how the improved material of the speakers themselves (the gold part) is a new addition to this Klipsch product line
  • Fortunately I was able to get a refund and instead went to a local best buy where it was on sale even further for 250!
  • I got these at Best Buy for a meager 260 bucks yesterday

Reviews around price (4.49 of 5)

  • The price made my legs feeble, but after receiving these speakers, wow
  • I purchased these on Amazon's "today's deal" at good price
  • These speakers will allow you to experience Reference quality audio with a myriad of input options at a competitive price
  • The price made my legs feeble, but after receiving these speakers, wow
  • I'm no audiophile, but these are night/day better than listening to typically crappy iphone/ipod/ipad speakers, at a decent price

Reviews around set (4.37 of 5)

  • All sets which sounded great were plagued by cheap capacitors on the boards inside these units which caused them to fail or distort over time
  • Great set of speakers, lacks bass but that's expected when you don't have a sub connected
  • Easy set-up and great sound for a mid size living room.
  • These speakers look and sound great, easy set up, and are perfect for our modestly sized living room
  • powerhouse bookshelf set, although looks great, prefer speaker covers

Reviews around input (4.37 of 5)

  • I love the various inputs - phono for vinyl, and bluetooth inputs are great and work smoothly
  • Analog inputs are fine, I give 3 stars because of past and current problems.
  • It's fine, still works, digital inputs are a pain in the ass.
  • I love the various inputs - phono for vinyl, and bluetooth inputs are great and work smoothly
  • and they were perfect except they were missing some of the inputs available from the Klipsch and Creative speakers which was important to me because I wanted to be able to use these over Bluetooth

Reviews around sub (4.08 of 5)

  • Could do without a subwoofer for most TV listening, but if you already own a sub, easy to connect
  • Probably would be even better with a sub woofer but still good without.
  • Connected my sub to it for extra bass, but sounded amazing regardless
  • Plus, if you're used to that extra sound, you will want to add a good sub
  • My sub was making a horrendous robotic noise, like a loud scraping rattling sound
  • Read remaining 9 reviews for sub

Reviews around klipsch (3.66 of 5)

  • I would gladly buy these again and am looking at the Klipsch powered sub to compliment
  • I've previously owned the original Klipsch Promedia 4.1 (now dead) and Own Klipsch Synergy 5.1s in the basement
  • It seems that Klipsch is using their reputation from their high end hand made speakers to float this line of fairly cheesy sounding Chinese ones
  • I was a little nervous to let go of my larger gear to downsize to a 400 sq." tiny house but am so happy I trusted Klipsch to do these powered speakers right
  • I contacted Klipsch and since I did not buy my speakers directly from them, they will not honor the warranty and basically told me to go F myself for buying their speakers

Reviews around power (3.61 of 5)

  • I think they need the subwoofer otherwise some tracks will miss power
  • Plus: loud, powered, several connection options, and came with several cords
  • I would gladly buy these again and am looking at the Klipsch powered sub to compliment
  • I've been waiting for a long time for powered speakers like these
  • This is simply the BEST powered monitors in the market for its price range.

Reviews around bluetooth (3.48 of 5)

  • Would have given 4 stars had the BlueTooth been working.
  • Bluetooth is useless, because if anything (including your hand) gets between the source and the speakers, the connection pauses
  • the bluetooth on this unit is horrible, if my phone is in my pocket, it will cut in and out a lot.
  • I love that they are both Bluetooth ready and can be hard wired.
  • No sound, despite indicated successful Bluetooth pairing or direct USB hookup.

Reviews around level (1.74 of 5)

  • , they come close but fall off at insane levels and efficiency at lower levels.
  • They can get loud but at all volume levels the mids and highs sound pretty terrible.
  • Reasonable low level punch
  • No crazy concert level dbl going on here, so not sure why they would fail so fast...but think the driver has blown
  • My V-moda Crossfade wireless headphones work 10 times farther than these speakers can, and they are battery powered and 1/8th of the size

Reviews around noise (1.69 of 5)

  • Finally I flipped the Phono/Line switch and the speakers emitted a very loud and awful static noise
  • My sub was making a horrendous robotic noise, like a loud scraping rattling sound
  • Some people reported an audible hiss/popping noise when the speaker is idle, I have not noticed it, but maybe my hearing is bad.
  • When the unit is turned on and there is no sound source connected, I can clearly hear static noise (woo/sss sound) from the speakers within a couple feet of range
  • Some people reported an audible hiss/popping noise when the speaker is idle, I have not noticed it, but maybe my hearing is bad.
