The Klipsch Icon SB-1 sound bar

The Klipsch Icon SB 1 sound bar fills the room with clear, crisp sound

The action leaves you speechless

Shots ring out.

That got your attention! A close up of a sports car's tires biting in to the pavement as it takes a curve at 60 fills your TV's screen. The squeal rattles your TV's on-board speakers.

Cut to a close-up of our hero leaning in to speak to his passenger as the motor guns in the background.

"Good thing we gozorninz platrt zamkefit. Grab that zrop!"

What? You know that's not what he said. Your TV may look fantastic, but highly dynamic, multi-layered audio is not its forte.

Coherency from chaos

Solution? The Klipsch Icon SB 1 sound bar with wireless subwoofer. Klipsch's legendary horn-loaded technology will banish incoherency while preserving all the rich detail you demand from your on-screen entertainment. Virtual surround technology immerses you in a surround-sound like audio experience from the get-go. Plenty of power is on-board to fill even a spacious viewing room with quality sound. Each channel features two soft dome compression tweeters mated to TracTrix® horns, for unparalleled clarity. The midrange and midbass frequencies are capably handled by four 3-inch woofers (2 for each channel). And then there's the wireless, 10-inch side-firing subwoofer for the authoritative low frequencies that breathe realism in to the action on-screen.

Ready in minutes

The 'SB 1 is easy to set up. Rubber feet are included for positioning on your entertainment console, and one cable is all you need to connect to your TV in most cases to hear better sound right away. Should you wish to wall-mount the sound bar, a template is included so you can use the dual keyhole mounts to do so. At 40 inches wide, it's a perfect companion for your wall-mounted TV sized 42 inches and up.

    Sound bar speakers: room-filling sound with less clutter

    Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.

    Replaced an older Onkyo surround system and was concerned that I would lose too much with a sound bar ... but wanted a simpler, cleaner setup. The Klipsch came without instructions but it was so simple, you don't need them. Attached to the TV via optical connection and to a older CD player via A/V connection. Both worked right out of the box with no issue including the wireless pairing with the sub. Was also simple to program the remote so that you don't need the Klipsch remote. Sound was even better than I hoped for ... not true surround sound like I had ... but better than using just the front speakers and sub from the Onkyo system.

    Pros: Simple to install

    Cons: Came without any instructions

    Great sound, great price

    Sound bar is easy to install and provides clear sound in a normal room. Price was unbeatable.

    Pros: Easy install sound quality, wireless sub adds a kick. Installed with LG TV in 20 minutes. Was always listening to the stock TV sound at max volume on Netflix, now we can hear dialog, music and surround perfectly. Enjoyed streaming holiday music through TV and the sound bar. Great product.

    Simply outstanding! This unit has seriously great sound and is so easy to set up. It works perfectly with my Samsung TV, which had disappointing sound. Now, I can hear everything clearly. The sub adds that extra kick. It's side firing, so it works well without being muffled by the carpeting I have. I had a Yamaha system, but it just wasn't enough to fill the large room I have this in.

    Pros: Ease of use. Sound quality.

    Cons: None.

    So far so good.

    Really wanted bluetooth connected speaker system, but for the price this one couldn't be passed up. Great sound deep bass. Gets pretty loud too. Only complaint, the optical port is too loose and the cord has a tendency to come unplugged. I contemplated returning it, but I've spent far too much time looking for a quality system iny price range. This was it. I'll resort to returning it or duck tape before I start the search again.

    Pros: Great sound, deep bass, easy to use.

    Cons: Loose optical port, dinky controller.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm a total audiophile and the blend of lows, mids, and highs is very important to me. These speakers sound amazing on movies and games. One caveat: if you want that great balanced and mastered sound you here in the Best Buy show room, you have to have media that has been mastered for optimal sound, such as Bu-ray, and then you need to use the optical port. Using the standard port will mix all the sound together and blast it out like your average car stereo, and so it's not worth the money to have this system unless you're using the optical line for optimized media. All in all, my trained ear says this performs just as well as the over-hyped $2000 Bose systems you hear about. I watch movies on this thing and feel completely immersed. Family room is fairly small compared to some living rooms, but turned all the way up, this thing can shake the nails loose in my neighbors' walls. :)

    Pros: Cost effective; very high quality balance of lows, mids, and highs, with separate wireless sub and independent volume control.

    Cons: None

    I ditched my 5.1 setup to try to simplify things. Purchased this unit and it performs as expected. It maintains clarity when it is loud. Setup was easy and basic, pretty much plug and play.

    Pros: Great clarity and good bass. Simple setup and operation.

    Cons: If you want a lot of bells and whistles then this will disappoint as it is very basic.

    Great Deal

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall I am very pleased with this unit. Plenty of power and good size. I am still trying to find the right balance between the soundbar and sub. I was able to program my Dish Remote to control the volume.

    Pros: Sub is very strong, makes movies come to life.

    Cons: No subwoofer control on remote, have to manually turn it down on the back of the unit. No Sound Leveling function. Commercials are way too loud. No digital UI so I can't tell what volume it is set on.

    Great Sound Bar

    Written By Mike P, Pennsylvania on Saturday, November 08, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this to replace an aging Sony Dolby pro logic system. I was looking for something with good sound and Bass that would clutter the room much less. This thing works great, not quite as loud as the Sony could play but very clearer sounding with better bass from the sub. Now on TV I can nearly feel a door slam on screen. It defiantly is made for TV and movies. but after plying a few of my fav CD's I'd say its very good and reproducing music recordings. the remote is the one thing that may be a let down to some. Its very tiny and I'm sure can be easy to loose, but it programed to my harmony remote with out a hitch so it not an issue for me. It's almost like they knew most buyers would use some type of programmable remote so they didn't bother to include a nicer one, as was my case.

    Pros: less clutter than a standard surround system sounds great plenty of bass vocals and voices sound nice

    Cons: dinky remote,

    Awesome product. I am happier with this sound bar than i am with my Bose.

    Pros: Full room sound. Sub is wireless and thumps.

    Cons: Volume adjustment needs be fine tuned. It goes from mute to loud with 1 click. Not many low volume options.

    Not bad

    Written By Paul, Virginia on Wednesday, November 05, 2014

    Unknown product name to me but I know Crutchfield (their product testing and customer service) so I bought it on that trust. Got it home and had it installed in no time. Not unhappy with this product at all.

    Pros: Sleek design... Fits well under the TV... Easy easy easy set up. Don't need a degree in audiology/sound mechanics to put this together. All of my Samsung remotes operate the sound bar and I didn't have to do the "teaching remote" steps

    Cons: There's no way of knowing what volume setting it is on so never sure if it's on a setting of 3 or a setting of 30... Occasionally it flutters when switching between sources on the TV. Volume levels between clicks varies is wide so when it's too low (click 1 click up) now it's too loud.

    Better than expected

    Written By lavelock, Roseville, CA on Monday, November 03, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    High quality sound, very well balanced. Dramatically better than TV speakers and sounds nearly as good as my other TV setup that is a $500 Sony receiver plus full set of surround infinity speakers with 10" subs.

    Pros: Small, super easy to setup, works with any IR remote for volume, low sale price, super tight deep bass, goes louder than I'd ever want yet stays clear. Easier for family to use because TV, Cable box, and speakers easy to get to work with one remote in simple setup.

    Cons: No competition for a true full surround system, but I wasn't expecting that. No tone adjustment other than subwoofer level, but it's so good, I don't find myself needing it.

    excellent soundbar package

    Written By Anonymous, Derby line,vt on Thursday, October 30, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this package to upgrade from the television speakers. I run everything off of my Xbox one including my cable tv. The sound this package puts out is incredible for the price. I had purchased a smaller samsung package for 100 less but my open living room kitchen space was too big and dwarfed the sound quality of the Samsung. When I installed the Klipsch system it blew me away with how good the bass from the woofer was filling the room anywhere you were. This is definitely a must buy for someone in the market . For an affordable soundbar and wireless sub.

    Pros: -High quality sound -excellent bass that adjusts on the fly -wireless sub is plug in ready -sleek design fits perfect under a mounted tv

    Cons: -supposed 3D sound is useless

    I am in a small apartment and can play my music as loud as I want and I absolutely love this sound bar. I had a Bose Solo which was good for movies but not as good for music radio. The sub is skookum with a nice solid sound and the bar itself sounds like thick clear syrup! LOVE IT!

    Pros: Easy to set-up. Sound is phenomenal.

    Cons: Non

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Fantastic product. I switched top a sound bar to save some room and get rid of clutter in my living room. I had demo's a number of models in this price range and sound wise, the Klipsch blew them all away. The only downside was the lack of Bluetooth but thats solved easily enough. And to be honest, the sound of this is so far surperior to the others in this range that it made it a non issue. Crystal clearm solid and full but not overwhelming bass and super easy set up. I think I Spent more time unpacking it than actually hooking it up. Combined with the sale price from Crutchfield, I cant see anything that can touch it. Since I got it I have been trying to talk a number of friends into getting one.

    Pros: Super easy setup, fantastic sound. Balanced, more tham ample volume, full bass. 3D sound is a great option for movies.

    Cons: Volume steps seem a tad wide. Lack of built in bluetooth.

    If you're use to the TV sound only, this is a huge upgrade. Everything is more enjoyable to watch. Also enjoy streaming Pandora for music whenever not watching TV. Easily worth the price!!

    Pros: Great sound....especially for the price.

    Cons: Low-level volume steps are too large. This is only a 1/2 star loss but was not a rating option and I can't give it a 5 because of this.

    Amazing sound

    Written By GilE, New Port Richey, FL on Sunday, September 07, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The living room in our new home is totally incompatible for surround sound. Plus, with 4 remotes sitting on the table, my wife never knew which one worked what. The answer was simple: Soundbar. I'd always heard such good things about Klipsch that I thought I'd give it a try. When the SB-1 arrived, it took less than 10 minutes for me to set it up. It has exceeded my expectations in terms of overall sound, good but not over the top base, well defined (clear) human voices, and ease of use. I couldn't ask for anything more!

    Pros: Sounds great. Easy to set up. The 3-D effect is amazing.

    Cons: I'd like it better if the subwoofer had a wood grained veneer and looked like wood rather than flat black. Remote is very small.

    Written By Tinkeringeek, Kissimmee, FL on Monday, July 14, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a 2nd Klipsch SB1 I own. The first one gave me such an impressive sound I had to get a second one to replace a Polk Audio 6000, which Crutchfield had picked as their choice a while ago. As expected, the signature of Klipsch is the crystal clear highs, which SB1 doesn't disappoint. The Polk Audio is great, but the SB1 is really much better. There is a lot of choice out there, and it's very hard to choose the ones that sound right... so this is one of those things you have to have faith when you buy it online. Crutchfield staffs are pretty reliable when it comes to recommendation so don't forget to ask lots of questions. Completely happy with the purchase ... especially now that the sound bar has gone down in price.

    Pros: Loud, clear highs, and thundering bass... Nice all around sound bar.

    Cons: None.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    If you keep in mind that this is a sound bar and not a surround system, this is a great piece if you want a full sounding spectrum compared to television speakers. The subwoofer adds a nice punch and rumble and the highs are nice too. This replaced a Yamaha yas-101 sound bar and it has both deeper and higher response but I preferred the volume control and response of the Yamaha. I would recommend this unit to anyone in the market for a sound bar.

    Pros: Punchy base and nice highs

    Cons: Volume increments

    Good, even in a big room

    Written By MN, Doylestown, PA on Friday, June 20, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Got this because I was completely unsatisfied with the sound from my new Sharp big screen. My living room is a 30 foot room with 25 foot vaulted ceilings and a little irregular shape and this system still sounds good. I am not a true audiophile, so I was not looking for an expensive true surround sound, or a hi end music quality system (obviously). I was skeptical that any sound bar system would sound acceptable in a room such as mine, but my family and I are thrilled with how it sounds. Very easy set up. Only wish my TV allowed me to disable its own volume - it is annoying to have the TV volume and the sound bar volume both responding to the universal remote - and I don't like having to grab the little sound bar remote every time I want to change the volume.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We are enjoying this soundbar and sub very much. It is not extremely loud but you can turn it up to max volume and it will not distort. Keep in mind, you only get out of it what you put in. A good clean signal going in such as hdmi and a good toslink cable like the monster cable that I purchased with this product will result in the best sound. Kept the box for about a week just in case I wanted to return it and a couple of days ago I disposed of the box, I will be keeping this. Thanks Crutchfield for the great service and thanks to Klipsch for the great sound!

    Pros: Great sound, wireless sub and minimal wires.

    Cons: A little low on power and remote doesn't work well past about 30 degrees from center.

    Meh. Not that much better than the TV.

    Written By jmeh, NC on Sunday, June 01, 2014

    After reading all the great reviews, I bought this item, set it up, and was immediately underwhelmed. I tried it vs the TV, vs a pair of floor-standing speakers, vs a pair of speakers that are above my head, and vs all of the above with and without subs. I realize it might not be fair to compare any 2.1 speaker set against a 1.1 solution, but I expected more sound to fill the room. On the plus side, the highs are nice and bright - it's good as a center channel for voice if that's what you want. Add the sub and I suppose that's why so many are happy. I thought the lack of mid-range was too noticeable, but I'm obviously in the minority. I had my neighbor, who was also excited that I got the Klipsch, sit an go through the various possibilities with me for an hour. He was also less than fully impressed. I have returned this sound bar and will try to convince my wife the the floor speakers are worth the improved sound. I really wanted this soundbar to work for our room, but I think the room is too big at 20x18 with an open second floor above.


    Written By Nicholas Scott, Maryville, TN on Saturday, May 17, 2014

    If your in need of a sound bar, there is no other choice, honestly. For the price and sound quality you'll be hard pressed to find something better. Strong mids with detailed high reaching tweeters. The 250 watts of power is not a real number. I'd say it's around 100 or so. The subwoofer is underpowered and must be placed in a corner. I have it set to 5/8 volume. Even still with a spl meter (not a fake iphone version) turned to volume 10 out of 20 it will play music back at 103-105 db 6 feet away listening to metal (The word alive, Wishmaster). Movies at volume 15 out of 20 dolby digital input from the ps3 is 90-110 db (Tron Legacy). No distortion period. Amazing really. Now for the negative. Needs to mounted high for optimal dispersion. Grill needs to be off on the sound bar or it will sound like a boombox. I have mine mounted 6 feet up above the 70inch in my apartment. Sub takes a long break in period,even longer for the speaker bar. I love this system though. Excellent for an apartment.

    Pros: Intoxicating sound. Excellent bass. Loud.

    Cons: Not a 5.1 system. Subwoofer placement limited. Sound bar needs to be mounted high for spatial dispersion. Break in time is a good week of listening.

    I needed a new sound system for my new Samsung Smart TV. I had the Bose Cinemate for my last Sony TV and was very happy with it. When I plugged in my Icon SB 1. I was blown away. Great bass from the wireless remote. And great high range from the bar. I thought I was happy with the Bose. I am ecstatic with the SB 1. Amazing range for a home theater system. I became a Klipsch believer when I was unsatisfied with the Bose earbuds and tried a pair of Klipsch. The sound quality was far and above the Bose and extremely comfortable. I am an officially declaring my loyalty to Klipsch, sorry Bose.

    Pros: Wireless SubWoofer, great Bass and high range. Dollar for Dollar . Great sound quality.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This soundbar fills my living room nicely with a full bodied sound. The bass is excellent and the vocals are crystal clear. That being said, there are a few issues. The 3D sound mode is useless and actually worse than the standard setting. The only control for the subwoofer volume is a knob on the subwoofer itself - not through the remote. The volume steps through the remote are not fine enough. I'd like to have more steps for finer control. And the remote is a little flimsy. I have a Vizio soundbar that was less than 1/2 the price of the Klipsch that has a few more features (including bluetooth). It lacks the depth of the Klipsch's sound, but not by a lot. All in all I'm pleased with the Klipsch, but they need to step up their game and include the features that cheaper soundbars provide. I think that the price I paid was fair to a little high compared to other makes. Crutchfield sales, service, and shipping was first rate!

    Pros: Great sub, full bodied sound, attractive design.

    Cons: Volume control not fine enough, no bluetooth, no sub controls on remote.

    Surprising Sound

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I am pleasantly surprised at the sound quality from the Klipsch SB-! setup, which I'm using in a fairly large-sized family room. It looks quite nice sitting atop a 72" long console unit, directly beneath my Sony 60" wall-mounted TV. The sound bar alone sounds quite tinny, with very little mid-range tones. However, the 10" Klipsch sub fills in the voids quite nicely -- and rattles the walls when necessary. I couldn't be happier.

    Pros: Good sound, good looks, quality of Klipsch at a reasonable price.

    Cons: None

    I got the Klipsch SB1 at the discounted price and it's well worth the money and would have been at the full price. TV show dialogue we couldn't hear clearly before is crisp and clear now. The bass is excellent and fills in where it should but doesn't overpower the rest of the audio. Setup was very easy, including tuning it to my cable remote. Fantastic purchase and an excellent product.

    Pros: Great sound, looks great, easy setup, quality product.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I needed a simplistic solution to provide better sound for my parent's T.V. and this sound bar worked perfectly. Easy setup (just a few cables & it learns your T.V.'s volume & mute buttons). Only problem I had was turning off the internal speakers in my Panasonic Plasma but a quick google search solved the problem.

    Pros: Very easy setup (no receiver needed) Much better sound than internal flat panel speakers (warmer sound with some bass) Learns T.V. remote buttons so dedicated remote not needed. Turns itself on & off when it detects signal from T.V.

    Cons: virtual surround sound is not believable. Stick with standard 2.1 and enjoy

    Shipping was very fast & the SB-1 arrived in undamaged condition. Installation using the optic cable was easy and the resulting sound is excellent. Two minor quibbles: adjusting sub woofer sound level took some trial & error to optimize and sound level ajustment is a bit course & can require some adjustment for different channels. I definitely recoomend the SB-1 for the quality of sound & ease of use.

    Great T.V. Sound Upgrade

    Written By KevinF, Columbus, Ohio on Sunday, April 06, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this as an upgrade to our 65" Samsung standard speakers for when we don't feel like turning on the home theater set-up. Based on other reviews we went for the Klipsch SB1. All I can say is "WOW", what a difference this soundbar makes. Although we've only been using it a few weeks, whether watching T.V. or movies, the Klipsch SB1 makes a huge difference in sound quality and projection. The base module is nice but the tonal quality from the soundbar is well worth the $399 price. Great addition to our home!!

    Pros: Easy set-up, great sound for the price

    We bought this sound bar for our new 55" tv and it works great. My wife wears hearing aids and this sound bar has tweeters that make it much better for people with hearing problems to make out voices. We love it and would recommend it to everyone.

    Arrived very quickly with no damage. Easy to set up. Great to listen to.

    Pros: Excellent sound quality even at low volume levels. The TV speakers made listening to speech an exercise in turning the volume way up to understand what was being said. Music and speech are crystal clear even at very low levels. Bought this after a price drop which was a bonus.

    Cons: After a couple of weeks - none that I can think of.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Got this on sale and had my eye on it anyway. The sound is probably the best I've heard in the ~$500 price range. The subwoofer really kicks. Set up is ridiculously easy. You need a digital optical audio cable. Other reviewers noted a coarse volume adjustment, which I agree with. It is not ideal but tolerable. My Directv remote controls the volume the same as the small remote supplied with the system. Note that this system doesn't have Bluetooth capability but I just got an RCA to headphone adapter cable and plug my iPhone into it directly to stream Pandora. Would have given 5 stars were it not for the volume adjustment and the lack of a Bluetooth connection.

    Pros: The sound Looks good

    Cons: No Bluetooth Coarse volume adjustment

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very nice, easy install. Sounds much better than TV speakers and other sound bars. It is hard to hit a sweet spot with volume at low levels, I assume its the sensitivity that Klipsch is known for. Not an issue when a little louder. Missing bluetooth but I knew that going in and probably never would use it anyway.

    Pros: Sound baby. I love the horn sound, Either you do or you don't. I also think Bose is overpriced hype for paper cones and inaccurate sound. To each his own. I love it

    Cons: A little steep on the price. Also hate that Audiovox owns Klipsch now. The thing will not do dishes no matter how I try....

    This sound bar was so easy to hook up after I called a crutchfield advisor to explain the optical cable. Since I never saw one I didn't know you have to take off the white plastic cap before trying to hook it up. I couldn't figure out why the cable didn't fit. After speaking with the advisor he assured me I wasn't the first person to make that mistake. I'm not sure if he was telling the truth but if he wasn't that also says something about the great customer service. The sound bar is amazing. I didn't realize how bad the TV sound was until I hooked this up. I can hear people when they speak now! Movies and music shows are so much better. I would definitely recommend buying the Klipsch Icon SB-1 and buy it from Crutchfield because it's the best price I could find anywhere and customer service is outstanding.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I did a lot of research online and listening in stores. This is by far the best-sounding bar under $1000 and totally whomps the $1500 bose bar. Got it from Crutchfield at $200 discount to every other store, plus free shipping and Crutchfield''s awesome tech support. If you have room for it, quit thinking and buy it.

    Pros: Sound, sound, sound. Really fills my 20 X 25 X 10 (ceilings) with clean clear sound. Base is deep without being boomy. Looks good (for a soundbar), installs in 5 minutes. Did I mention the sound?

    Cons: Only complaint is it didn't have bluetooth connectivity built in. Easily solved by plugging soundbar to TV via optical cable and adding a Logitech bluetooth speaker adapter ($40) via the soundbar's RCA jacks (inexplicably, Crutchfield doesn't carry this item).

    This is a very nice aftermarket TV speakers, but I was expecting a little better sound for the price. paired with a 55" Samsung LED TV. The simulated 3D sound is good with Blueray discs. but not on normal DVD's. No really sound difference from the internal speakers on the TV and SB-1 when watching normal TV show thru my cable provider. If I was doing it again I would have purchased something in the $200-$300 price range and probable would have gotten the same sound quality and save $250-$300.

    Pros: Easy of setup, a little better sound quality then the factory speakers.

    Cons: Price

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I originally focused on the Klipsch SB3 but ordered the top rated Sony soundbar in Consumer Reports which did not have the full sound I was looking for. I traded it up for a ZVOX 555 which was better because I could hook my existing 10" subwoofer to it, but the subwoofer connection went out after a few weeks. I traded up again for the Klipsch SB1, which had now replaced the SB3, and I'm absolutely satisfied with its clear and crisp sound and the 10" subwoofer provides the fullness I was looking for. As far as the volume adjustment issue others have commented about, I find that if I boost the volume and it jumps too far I can back it down a little and get the level I'm looking for. A bit of a hassle, but you can get to the level you want to with some adjustment. I would highly recommend the Klipsch SB1 for ease of setup and providing very accurate reproduction of the sound.

    Pros: Ease of setup. Very clear, crisp and full sound with the 10" wireless subwoofer. No turning off or on with the automatic off and on feature. Programmed easily with my cable box remote.

    Cons: I have no negatives to report.

    This product lived up to both the Company description, and the customer reviews I read before purchasing it. Installation was very easy and it sounds great to me! Of course I could be biased, but guests comment regularly about how great this sound system is, so the quality of the system is evident to everybody. Also, my TV does not interface with the optical connection so I had to call a tech for some help. As always Crutchfield Techs came through. They researched my TV and had me up and running in a matter of minutes!

    Pros: Great quality to cost ratio. Easy installation. Technical assistance is outstanding!

    My large screen TV speakers occasionally rattle at higher volumes so have been meaning to get a sound bar... And now that I just got an Xbox One, even more reason to get good sound. After much research I landed on this system and am not disappointed. It really fills my pretty large room with sound and it has more than enough power that I would never "crank it up" all the way, else my ears would hurt. The sub-woofer really can make my house shake. Great for movies and video games.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    After reading the reviews here and talking to a Crutchfield advisor, I decided to give this sound bar a shot. I had already gone through two Samsungs (the first one was knocked to the floor by the cat and it was toast, the insides of the CD mechanism hanging loosely from the housing) and the second one simply died .....two weeks after the one year warranty had expired. As my advisor noted, while Samsung makes great TVs (and I have one I wouldn't trade for anything) they are not sound experts. Duly noted.

    I was concerned that the system would not be sufficient for the size of my room, (20x25) but it is great. Sound definition is excellent. As for the complaints about the sound adjustments, my Verizon FIOS remote automatically adjusts the Klipsch, so I have none of those problems that others have reported. Sound adjusts smoothly.

    Pros: Easy peasy to set up right out of the box. Sounds great. Couldn't beat the price.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Wiring and start-up was unbelievably simple (I used the optic connector provided). Follow the instructions and the remote set-up was a cakewalk. As mentioned by a couple previous reviewers, the "steps" in volume using the provided remote are rather large. I found using my Samsung remote, they are more incremental. As for the sound? Wow. Absolutely night and day improvement over the television's internal speakers. Bass, vocals, mid-range......love it. Watching movies and listening to music is incredible.

    Pros: Super easy set-up, amazing performance for a soundbar-based system

    Cons: The only "con" I can think of is the aforementioned volume "steps" with the provided remote.
