Compact, high-performance speakers

Don't let its small size fool you — this Klipsch® five-speaker system delivers rich, accurate sound to make all your favorite movies, tunes, and video games more enjoyable. It boasts many of the same technologies and design principles Klipsch uses in their larger Reference Series speakers, so you'll hear distinctive, dynamic sound. The unobtrusive Quintet combo makes a great choice for a bedroom or den, or for anyone who wants high-quality sound without big, boxy speakers crowding the living room. And each speaker features a contemporary sculpted cabinet that looks right at home alongside today's flat-panel TVs.

Klipsch Quintet system with grilles removed

Crisp, dynamic sound thanks to high-tech drivers and cabinets

The Quintet's injection-molded graphite woofers are lightweight but tough enough to deliver tight bass and clean midrange. Crisp treble comes courtesy of aluminum compression drivers coupled with efficient Klipsch Tractrix® horns — flared openings in each enclosure that project high frequencies toward your listening area and prevent sound waves from simply spilling out in all directions. All of the drivers are housed in AcoustaComp® enclosures made from a dense, anti-resonant material to keep cabinet vibration from adversely affecting sound. You can place the Quintets on a shelf, or use the keyhole slots or threaded inserts on the back to mount them on your wall for a clean, out-of-the-way installation.

Pair the Quintet system with any Klipsch subwoofer to complete your home theater.

    Why choose a pre-matched speaker system?

    Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics — that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer — a must-have for high-impact bass.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have been impressed with every Klipsch system I've heard. A subwoofer is needed to fill this out but the 5 Quintet is solid and delivers great sound even at low volume.

    Pros: Solid units

    Cons: don't come with wall mount brackets


    Written by: Rudy from CA on May 19, 2014

    I've had my Quintets (+/-) 12 yrs now & they are just as fresh sounding as the day I pulled them out of the box.

    Pros: Love them. If necessary, I would purchase another set.

    Cons: Zero, nada !

    Amazing. They don't miss a beat, even at very loud volumes. You can hear every detail. Dialogue is clear at low volumes. Definitely a good buy for anyone with limited space.

    Pros: Good looking. Sturdy. Great sound. An all around good product

    Cons: None

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Exactly what I was expecting. Clean sound, solid build, great sound.

    Add a subwoofer and you have sonic nirvana.

    I have them mounted in a huge living room with 12 foot ceilings up high in all 4 corners, and the center channel only about 2 feet off the ground. Obviously not the ideal installation sound wise but they performed very well in spite of that. I'm hearing things I hadn't heard with my previous speakers.

    A Subwoofer is a must unless you place these in a much much smaller room.

    Pros: Pros: Deadly accurate, great mids, compact design, excellent price/performance ratio.

    Cons: Cons: A tad bright, but not harsh or tinny sounding at all. Had to purchase my own wall mount brackets (about 20.00 for 4 brackets.)

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed the system in my living room and teamed with my Onkyo TX-SR506 it rocks. Setup was very easy just plug the speakers in to the receiver and used the automatic speaker setup, which calibrated the speakers for the best sound. These speakers are good looking and produce great sound. Thanks again Crutchfield for a very good product at an affordable price.

    Pros: well made speakers, great sounding and an great pricing.

    Cons: none

    System Features

    Overview: The Klipsch Quintet (5th generation) bundles four satellite speakers and a center-channel speaker together. Two of the satellite speakers serve as front left & right main channels, while the other two satellite speakers operate as rear surrounds. The magnetically-shielded center channel delivers crisp dialogue and precise imaging. Regardless of where you put it, the system has a clean, modern appearance that blends nicely with any décor. It features a satin black finish and black cloth grilles; a color scheme that beautifully complements today's flat-panel TVs.

    Optional Powered Sub: The Quintet speaker package has an overall frequency response of 110 to 23,000 Hz and will require a powered subwoofer (sold separately) for full-range sound. Check out these powered subs from Klipsch.

    Driver Technology

    Tractrix Horn Technology: Each Quintet loudspeaker employs a 90° x 90° Tractrix Horn designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main listening area, without generating excessive reflected sounds that reduce overall sound clarity. Instead of simply adding a basic tweeter waveguide like some competitive models, the proprietary Tractrix curve at the horn's mouth functions as a more sophisticated waveguide, reducing reflections both into the main listening area and reflections back to the guide itself, for a more detailed sound with superior vocal clarity. Additionally, horn-loading creates the exclusive benefits of higher efficiency (more sound output with the same power input for truly big sound ), much lower distortion (to reveal even the smallest sonic details not even heard in other designs) and increased dynamic range (which produces a more lifelike, exciting sound at any volume level.

    Aluminum Tweeter: Combined with the Tractrix Horn; the lightweight, responsive, aluminum diaphragm 0.75" tweeter works with a precise phasing plug at the horn's throat to create a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension assures the most precise diaphragm excursion, further increasing high-frequency detail and balance.

    Long-Throw IMG Woofers: All the Quintet loudspeakers feature long-throw IMG (injected molded graphite) 3.5" woofers. These woofers are lightweight, yet very stiff and are matched with large motor structures for maximum controlled excursion that creates a more balanced bass output. The four satellite loudspeakers feature one IMG woofer, while the center-channel speaker is fitted with two IMG woofers.

    Crossover Network: The tweeter and woofer are complimented by a new, "audiophile" quality crossover network which mates those two drivers perfectly.

    Enclosure Design

    Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Quintet loudspeakers employ a bass reflex enclosure with a single rear-firing port for greater bass response and higher efficiency.

    AcoustaComp Cabinets: The entire Quintet surround system (4 satellite speakers and a dedicated center channel) uses cabinets composed of professional grade AcoustaComp composite materials. AcoustaComp is a material that is naturally dense, rigid and acoustically inert, with a uniquely exquisite finish. This specialized material, formed into Quintet's speaker cabinets with non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is truly the next generation in compact home speaker technology.

    Detachable Grilles: Each speaker comes with a black cloth detachable grille.


    Spring-Post Terminals: Each Quintet loudspeaker is fitted with a pair of spring-post terminals which will accept bare wire (up to 14AWG) and pin-connectors.

    Color-Coded: The speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

    Mounting Options

    Rubber Feet: The Quintet satellite & center-channel speakers come with self-adhesive rubber feet (4 each) so you can sit the speaker on a stand, table or shelf safely and securely.

    Wall Mountable: The Quintet satellite & center-channel speakers feature keyhole slots on the back of the cabinet for wall-mounting the speakers without any additional wall-mount bracket (mounting screws not supplied). There is also a 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the back of each loudspeaker for mounting the speakers to the wall using an optional articulating bracket (sold separately). Each satellite speaker features a single keyhole slot and one 1/4"-20 threaded insert. The center-channel speaker features dual keyhole slots and two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts.

    Note: Each threaded insert is recessed 0.225" behind a keyhole slot.

    Yes crystal clear. I couldn't be happier with these speakers, I have no regrets so far. [ PAUL  May 26, 2014 ]
    Henry- I purchased this exact set and the speakers are wonderful. They are crystal clear at all levels. There are a bright set. Enjoy! [ Rick Jackson  May 23, 2014 ]
    Yes, very clear. You can't beat this system for the price. [ TOM  May 23, 2014 ]
    Would love to help except we are in the middle of a move to our new house and have not yet set up our entertainment center. The Klipsch's are still in the box.Sorry. [ ALFRED  May 23, 2014 ]
    Henry, The sound from the center channel is astonishing to say the least. I'm sure you will be watching TV shows, movies, and listening to music (my personal favorite) and at low volumes the center channel sounds like an extra crisp and clear whisper of your favorite media. Obviously it sounds better when your media of choice is high quality (HD TV, mp4, lossless, etc.), but even with standard def TV, the center channel recreates the spoken word exceptionally well. I love the quintet system so much because when I go to sleep at night I set the speakers to a much lower volume and can still hear everything as clearly as I would when it's blasting through my entire house. They are incredible speakers that you will cherish for years and years to come. :) [ THOMAS P  May 22, 2014 ]
