Our take on the Klipsch Icon SB-1

by Woody Sherman
Klipsch

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.

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.

    Features

    Overview: The Klipsch SB-1 Soundbar + Subwoofer Speaker System improves your television and movie sound by simulating a multi-speaker surround sound system. It instantly upgrades your TV sound without requiring a separate receiver and multiple speakers. The Klipsch SB-1 consists of a self-powered soundbar speaker and a 10" wireless powered subwoofer, combining for 250-watts (Peak) of power. The system features an elegant black satin finish to blend in with your flat-panel TV and decor.

    Self-Powered Soundbar w/ Horn-Loaded Technology: The Klipsch SB-1 includes a self-powered Soundbar speaker. The SB-1's Soundbar speaker utilizes horn-loading technology designed to send sound more directly to the listening area. By incorporating highly efficient horn-loaded technology into the SB-1 all sounds are more detailed, dialogue clarity is significantly improved, and overall output is maximized to cover even the largest listening areas. The Soundbar speaker utilizes two lightweight 0.78" aluminum tweeter diaphragms for distinctive high-frequency detail, coupled with four 3" long-throw IMG (injected molded graphite) woofers for extended mid-bass response. The tweeters are mated to dual 90° x 90° Tractrix Horns to both reduce distortion and to increase dispersion more directly to the main listening area. Reduced distortion increases sonic detail while controlled dispersion sends more sound to the listening area for greater accuracy and openness.

    Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The Klipsch SB-1 includes a wireless powered subwoofer with a 10" side-firing fiber composite woofer in a bass reflex enclosure (with rear-firing slot-port). The sophisticated, 2.4 GHz technology automatically connects the soundbar and subwoofer together wirelessly (wireless range of up to 50'). Subwoofer cabinet construction is critical for proper bass reproduction. Particleboard or, even worse, plastic subwoofer cabinets resonate in a manner that severely distorts bass, causing it to sound "boomy". The Klipsch SB-1 subwoofer uses a very solid MDF cabinet to prevent unwanted vibration and distortion. The wireless powered subwoofer has an independent volume control dial located on its rear-panel.

    3D Surround Mode: The Klipsch SB-1 features a selectable 3D Surround Mode designed to simulate the effect of a surround sound system. This effect will work at multiple listening positions in your room.

    Digital + Analog Connection: The Klipsch SB-1 is designed to quickly connect to most TV's using either a digital optical (toslink) connection or an analog (RCA) hookup. Using the digital optical connection, the built-in Dolby Digital decoder accepts sound from both the TV and any device (such as a DVD/Blu-ray player or Cable/Satellite receiver) hooked up to the TV. There is also analog RCA left/right input, if your television does not offer an optical digital output.

    Remote Control: You can program the Klipsch SB-1's Volume Up/Down and Mute functions into your existing TV remote for further ease-of-operation. You also have the option of controlling all functions of the system with the included IR remote control.

    Mounting Options: The soundbar speaker can be positioned on a shelf or stand using the supplied rubber feet. It can also be wall-mounted using its dual keyhole slots and included easy-to-use template. The keyhole spacing is 28.25". The minimal 2.9375" soundbar depth aesthetically matches either a wall-mounted or table-top mounted TV. The rubber feet add 0.25" to the height of the soundbar speaker.

    Awesome Klipsch

    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.

    Very Nice Sound bar

    Written By Brian, Benson, NC on Sunday, June 22, 2014
    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.

    I got this as a scratch and dent (boo yah). It sounds great and really compliments a large room. The sound also carries to other rooms nicely. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get something affordable.
    Pros:

    Cons:

    Klipsch SB1

    Written By Bubg70, Malden Mo. on Tuesday, June 03, 2014
    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.

    Amazing

    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.

    Klipsch Quality Sound

    Written By Giovanni, Windham, ME on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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.
    Cons:
    None

    Very nice

    Written By Rick P, Waterford, MI on Sunday, May 04, 2014
    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

    Written By jrobbins03msu, Madison, MS on Friday, April 25, 2014
    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.

    It is a very good wireless sound bar and subwoofer. The sound is excellent, just right, and has good power, subwoofer has an adjuster base boom boom, I like it. It's automatic set up, just plug and play. The price is reasonable too.
    Pros:
    The sound clarity and power.
    Cons:
    Nothing

    Plug & play sound solution

    Written By RATBX71, Bronx, NY on Saturday, April 12, 2014
    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

    KLIPSCH ICON SB-1

    Written By Bill R, Rockville, MD on Saturday, April 12, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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
    Cons:
    None yet

    I've been looking for a simple speaker system for my main room. We watch live music and concerts and this is AWESOME! Very easy to place in the room and install right above my 55" screen on the wall. I have the volume programmed in the same remote I use for cable and it was a very easy process. No need for extra cables ire speaker wires.

    Best Sound Bar

    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.

    Nice sound

    Written By RR, Mechanicsville, VA on Friday, March 28, 2014
    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....

    Written By Debbie R, Philadelphia,PA on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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.

    Great Bar, Great Buy

    Written By Cliff, Austin, TX on Wednesday, March 12, 2014
    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).

    I have heard a lot of different sound systems before making my decision and am completely satisfied with my choice. I have a hard time hearing people talking on regular Television speakers but since i hooked this sound bar up the clarity for me is night and day. The bass works so well that i have to actually keep it turned down so it does not rattle loose accessories in my house.
    Pros:
    Got it on sale and nobody around could beat the price i got from Crutchfield. Sound quality is excellent. Does not take up much space.

    Purchased new Samsung 75" and as you all know sound from TV speaker is poor so I purchased the Samsung bar thinking that would do the trick. I must admit it was better than the TV speakers but very disappointing hardly any base so I stepped up and purchased the Klipsch SB1 and all I can say is WOW!!!! no comparison well worth the extra $ totally satisfied highly recommend the sound is incredible without breaking the bank.

    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:

    Wonderful Full Sound

    Written By Tikiman, Klamath Falls, OR on Sunday, February 02, 2014
    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.

    We had a Bose system for quite a while. We decided to switch To a sound bar to eliminate all the clutter of wires. I am very impressed with the Klipsch sound bar that it has just as good sound if not better than the Bose system. It was very easy to set up and it's nice that it will learn your remote so you don't have to keep track of the little remote that comes with it

    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!
    Cons:
    I thought about blue tooth capabilities after I bought it, and the system is not blur tooth compatible...but that was my fault.

    Excellent sound bar

    Written By Tommy, Detroit, MI on Wednesday, January 01, 2014
     
    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.
    Pros:
    Great sound, Xbox One voice command can control SB-1 volume levels, Lots of power, Does not take up too much space, Easy set up

    Awesome Sound, Great Deal

    Written By Holly H, Southlake, TX. on Friday, December 27, 2013
    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.
    Cons:
    None.

    Sound bar was delivered quickly and in perfect condition. We had looked as several sound bars in a nearby store, and this one was by far the best. With Crutchfield we were able to purchase it for less than we had expected. We are very pleased with the quality of the sound. It makes watching movies at home feel very close to watching them in a theater. I would certainly recommend Crutchfield and the Klipsch Icon SB-1 to anyone!

    Night and day improvement

    Written By Bill, Missouri on Saturday, December 07, 2013
    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.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Love soundbars for easy hookup and sound function in small to avg rooms. I had been looking at this soundbar for awhile All my soundbars have come from crutchfield and more than happy with product and service. This soundbar is quality in richness and how it can fill a room. It is a bar great for tv drama, movies and music. My ear had to get used to the difference and out of the box it was a bit tight until it played awhile. My wish list was that the next manufacture will include hdmi and volume display. This bar is as close to a 5.1surround that I have seen and it one of the few that can fill an open room with wonderful sound without turning up to the max and the sub all the way up.. Really a wonderful bar.one feature this bar has when hooked to an optical cable on the back of the tv or aux to the cable box is once the tv or cable box is turned off it goes to standby and when tv or cablebox turned back on it awakes to sound, no need to hunt the bars remote everytime. WORTH THE MONEY SPENT!
    Pros:
    Full sound, power, ease of use and just plain quality of a soundbar. Great bar tv and music.
    Cons:

    As described - great soundbar!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    After doing some extensive research online (customer reviews, critics reviews), the Klipsch SB1 looked to be a top mid-priced sound bar and a good value for the money. After using it for 2 weeks now I have no regrets on the purchase. The bar was simple to install and hang and is very simple to operate. The sound is quite powerful, especially when combined with the subwoofer. The clarity also is amazing even at high volumes. The only reason I give it 4 stars is the volume stepping issue which I was already aware of when purchasing the sound bar. It was mentioned in numerous reviews and the criticism is valid. It doesn't ruin the audio experience, but it is definitely something I notice and wonder how the heck Klipsch overlooked (or ignored?) this issue.
    Pros:
    Easy to install, hang and use. Excellent sound - great value for the omney
    Cons:
    Sound stepping is too wide

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Product arrived as scheduled in perfect condition. Setup was simple. Sound from this system is excellent and makes my old surround sound system seem obsolete. Excellent for TV concert shows, and room filling effects for movies. Best feature is that conversations are crystal clear with this equipment vice my ss unit.
    Pros:
    easy setup, simple to use 6 key remote control, deep rich sounding tones through the whole range of speakers, very good volumn control.
    Cons:
    none so far, have been using the equipment with a 46 inch sony flat screen and the sound is now a great compliment to sony's great picture.

    Had only a few days and sound is awesome. Bass is great and I have not yet found the best place for the sub woofer. Switching the 3d funcition on and off enables a good sound difference. I highly reccomend!

    Great sound, easy set up, excellent sub woofer

    Big Sound and Value

    Written By Rob, Fredericksburg, VA on Thursday, February 28, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This sound bar produces big, natural sound. Started out a bit shrill out of the box, but has broken in nicely. Excellent clarity in dialogue and will flat out scream on soundtracks. It is not true surround sound (nor is it supposed to be) but the 3D mode does add some "width". I researched sound bars for months before deciding on this model. It was a great choice. The SB-1 is an excellent value for the sound upgrade received. It works perfectly with my Harmony 900 remote. As another reviewer noted on another Klipsch model, the adjustments in volume were a bit coarse. I found that my cable box had the "loudness" feature enabled. I disabled the feature and the volume adjustment is more refined. Finally, as always, you'll never go wrong buying from Crutchfield.
    Pros:
    Clear, natural sound. Decor friendly. Wireless sub. Strong, but not overpowering bass. Simple connections. Easy integration with Harmony 900 remote.
    Cons:
    None

    Wow! The SB-1 fills my great room with crisp and clear high's and awesome BOTTOM END anywhere in the room. I mounted the sound bar on top of the 50" plasma and the sub 12 ft. away. It was easy to program the Sat. Receiver remote to control it. I am very happy with the Klipsch Icon. Just turn it up!

    I own a Harmon Kardon sound bar for another TV, that sounded good enough for me to try this for the living room set. What a difference! The sound quality is much better on the Klipsch.... Better sound, Much better separation in 3d mode and the set up was very easy!
    Pros:
    Simple to hang up above the tv, using the provided template. Up and running in 20 mins!! Sounds great!!
    Cons:
    The Box was pretty beat up on arrival,with a couple of fist sized dents and a 2-3 inch hole knocked partially into it. However, the upon opening, the equipment was fine and in perfect shape. So really.... no gripes!!

    • Not sure what model your TV is and how old it is. You can purchased a universal remote at any retail store. Walmart, Target, etc. If you want something more what you are looking for on a higher end unit, check with Crutchfield. Dan [ DAN   Aug 06, 2014 ]
    • You will need to contact Klispch to get a replacement remote. You can reach them at 1-800-KLIPSCH [ Jeff Staff  Jul 29, 2014 ]
    Does the SB1 have direct treble and/or EQ controls? I know the sub does not support level on remote but what about other EQ features? [ Ben N  May 27, 2014 ]
    4 answers
    • The SB1 does not have any tone or eq controls. [ STEPHEN R   Jun 02, 2014 ]
    • No, the SB1 does not have treble/EQ controls on the remote or otherwise. The volume control increases/decreases incrementally, with no fine control, but the increments seem to work out OK. The sub has its own volume control located on the sub. The sound is absolutely great - I especially like the 3D surround mode for both TV and music - I don't know how they do it. [ CHARLES C   May 28, 2014 ]
    • No, it does not. I have adjusted at the source whether it is TV or receiver. Has great sound with wonderful low tones. [ LEO A   May 28, 2014 ]
    • No they do not have EQ Controls. Just subwoofer min/max volume control. [ AMANTE   May 28, 2014 ]

    Hi, What size room would be considered too "big" to use this and end up loosing "volume" and loudness? 20'x20' with 10' ceilings a big too big for this? I have my finger on the trigger to buy this... [ Brian  Apr 01, 2014 ]

    • Brian, mine is in a room approximately 17'x20'x9'. It works great. I have a higher end sound bar in another room and I prefer the sound quality of the SB-1 to the more expensive one. Good luck. [ JEFFREY   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    • Thanks everybody...went ahead and pulled the trigger. This should be great from what i am hearing for my simple living room. [ Brian   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    • Brian, put this in our lower level media viewing area which is about the same size with 9 foot ceilings. We have a 65" Samsung and the sound quality from the Klipsch so far has bee nothing short of impressive. Not the same as a complete home theatre system, but much better than the standard speakers for movies or regular T.V. viewing. [ KEVIN   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    • We have a similar size room with 20' high ceilings and the sound is fantastic. I would recommend this set to anyone. [ KEVIN   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    • Hey Brian, This size room is definitely NOT too big. Mine is about the same size and I absolutely LOVE it. I only have the bass up 1/2 way cause I'm afraid I'll disturb my neighbors w/it all the way up. It will literally vibrate the floor across the room. Feels like I'm in a movie theater most of the time. I say pull the trigger, you won't be sorry! ;) ~Rae [ RAE   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    • SB 1 has not been installed. When I do, will follow up. [ David   Apr 02, 2014 ]
    Since this is a optical only sound bar. Using this with a smart tv will not work properly correct? The main sound signal will be sent from the DVR box.. Is there any work around to get the sound if your watching netflix to come from the bar? [ Daniel  Mar 19, 2014 ]
    6 answers
    • Your TV should have an optical out (fiber optic) or analog out (red & white RCA). Either output source from your TV to the sound bar will work. Whatever source the TV is showing should send the sound to to sound bar. [ BRIAN G   Jul 08, 2014 ]
    • I not sure what issue you have, but I've a Smart TV, I connected the DVR box to the TV with a HDMI cable, Connected the optical TV output to the Soundbar optical input,turned off the internal speakers. Everything audio plays thru the soundbar. [ JOHN H   Apr 03, 2014 ]
    • The sound bar works great on my Samsung Smart TV. I connect the smart TV to the internet and play movies through the Amazon app without any sound problem. I have a Netflix app as well but don't subscribe, It should work the same. [ Allan   Mar 20, 2014 ]
    • The sound will still go through the TV. Your set up in the tv needs to be switched to sound bar. [ STANLEY J.   Mar 20, 2014 ]
    • The optical is hooked up to the TV so watching Netflix through the bar is not a problem. I do it now. There can be a lag/echo sometimes with the sound at the beginning dependent on the transfer speed. That goes away in a few minutes. [ William   Mar 20, 2014 ]
    • I am not sure what you mean by a smart TV. I have a 60" Sharp Aquos with built-in WiFi including Netflix. The Klipsch Icon SB-1 has two types of inputs. It has a digital optical audio input and stereo RCA phono plug inputs. I connected the digital optical cable directly to my television and I get sound from all applications including Netflix. FYI - when you set up the SB-1, you first couple your television remote to the soundbar. Your television remote then controls the volume of the audio coming from the soundbar. It took a couple of attempts for the soundbar to learn the signal from my remote, but once it did, it worked fine. I hope this answered your question. [ RICHARD W   Mar 20, 2014 ]
    Does this have to be direct wired to a network in order to use the optical cable like a Sonos system? [ Travis  Mar 07, 2014 ]
    6 answers
    • I Know nothing about Sonos, I not sure what you mean by network, my optical cable goes between the TV output & the SB1 input. The speaker system is decent I would give it 4 **** , the remote should be redesigned, it's too small easy to lose, and hard to tune into a desirable volume level. [ JOHN H   Mar 08, 2014 ]
    • All you have to do is plug and play. [ JOE D   Mar 08, 2014 ]
    • Optical to any source that accepts optical. Ours goes from bar to tv. Could go to receiver, cable box, etc. Component ports and cables also an option. [ JIM   Mar 07, 2014 ]
    • If you have it hooked up to a smart tv you don't. You access your network through there. There is no wifi or network cables on the system itself. [ William   Mar 07, 2014 ]
    • Nope, it doesn't. I just got one and it is only hooked up to my TV. For what it's worth, the sound is great. I'm very pleased with it. [ MEREDITH   Mar 07, 2014 ]
    • Travis I am not familiar with that system so I did read up on it and it seemed all it confirmed was the sonos will play what ever sound was put into it. In that case the will play anything hooked up to it or thru the tv. [ STANLEY J.   Mar 07, 2014 ]
    Will this sound bar turn on and off with a new Samsung LED TV? [ Buzzz  Mar 06, 2014 ]
    2 answers
    • I have my SB-1 connected to my television with the digital optical cable. When you turn the TV on, the SB-1 detects the signal from the television and automatically comes on. When you shut the TV off, the soundbar dies not shut off. It shuts off automatically after a few minutes of not detecting sound from your television. [ RICHARD W   Mar 20, 2014 ]
    • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You can program this sound bar with your new Samsung remote control. With this, you can power it on/off, turn up/down the volume, and mute the sound bar. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

    Is this a 5.1 or 2.1 system? Will it decode DTS and some of the newest audio standards offered by Bluray players? [ DarkMeth  Feb 24, 2014 ]
    3 answers
    • 2:1 you will have tell the tv you have a soundbar [ STANLEY J.   Mar 07, 2014 ]
    • This is a powered sound bar/sub. It should play whatever you have coming out. I don't think the Blu-ray can process the sound, so pre-amp through the TV. [ DANIEL M   Mar 04, 2014 ]
    • It's not 5.1. For real surround sound you need a different amplifier. This is a very good, inexpensive shelf system for a small room, but wonderful for that. [ RICHARD   Feb 26, 2014 ]
    Does this product have Bluetooth capabilities? [ Klipsch  Jan 10, 2014 ]

    • No Bluetooth capabilities. It would be the perfect soundbar if it did! [ Kelly   Jan 13, 2014 ]
    • No [ Bob   Jan 10, 2014 ]
    • The Klipsch SB-1 soundbar does not have native bluetooth capabilities. An alternative option is to get an RCA (red-white) to 3.5mm headphone adapter to plug your device into the soundbar. Likewise, a bluetooth 3.5mm headphone dongle may be a possibility. You can't beat the sound on this soundbar for the price, very happy with my purchase! [ JOSEPH   Jan 10, 2014 ]

    • If the TV sits on a pedestal base you could place a piece of wood, e.g., a 2x8 or 2x10 cut to length to support the base. I have the same issue and have been thinking of that as a solution. I need to raise mine about 2 inches. [ EDWARD L   Jan 07, 2014 ]

    • You may wish to determine if the soundbar can attach to the mounting bracket directly. Ours did. The kit included a small shelf-like device that facilitated the mounting of the sound bar to the frame. Les [ LES R   Jan 06, 2014 ]
    Can you hook this up to a receiver or does it have its own amp like a Bose? [ Ryan h  Dec 10, 2013 ]
    1 answer
    • This system does have a built-in amplifier. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 10, 2013 ]
    Does this Klipsch SB1 support 220V power or only 110V.? I know the Bose series supports both voltages. [ Guy uh  Dec 02, 2013 ]
    5 answers
    • I believe only 110v. For me it was just plug into a 110v outlet and turn it on. Highly recommend this sound bar. Everyone who heard it thinks it's the best they've heard. [ JOE   Dec 03, 2013 ]
    • I looked on the back of the subwoofer and it supports up to 240V so I can only assume the soundbar does as well. I can't readily access the power supply on the bar to confirm, but I am fairly certain you will be fine at 220V. [ ROBERT   Dec 02, 2013 ]
    • I do not know but do not recall seeing a voltage selector on the back. [ LEO A   Dec 02, 2013 ]
    • Yes. The SB1 power suppy looks like the type that is used for laptop computers and is marked "INPUT 110-240 V 50-60 HZ 1.5 A". The AC supply cord is the type for North America with a two blade NEMA plug on one end, and an IEC "C8" plug on the other end that connects to the power supply. This very common C8 type cord can be replaced with one that matches the power outlet standard in your country. Search on Google for "Klipsch Sb1 quick start" to see a very rough drawing of the SB1 power supply on page 2. [ Kent   Dec 02, 2013 ]
    • Not sure. It has a transformer that plugs into the power but I am not sure if it handles both 110 and 220. [ MARK J   Dec 02, 2013 ]
