Crutchfield: Klipsch Reference sound bars
California customers: click here for your Proposition 65 warning.Please
In a perfect world, we'd all have tricked-out home theaters with speakers nestled into every nook and cranny, and cables routed through walls and ceilings. In the real world, the Klipsch Reference R-10B delivers an exciting home theater experience while taking up very little space and connecting to your TV with a single cable.
The R-10B consists of a sound bar, which can rest on your TV stand or be mounted on the wall, and a wireless subwoofer for deep, powerful bass without a cable running across the floor. Together, they'll restore clear dialogue, immersive sound effects, and low-frequency impact to movies and TV shows. And you won't need an architect to re-imagine your house to start enjoying it.
The Klipsch Reference R-10B sound bar makes a perfect mate for a large-screen TV. It can be wall-mounted (shown) or placed on a TV stand.
This system's two-channel sound bar offers uncompromised clarity with legendary Klipsch sound. Two 3/4" tweeters offer detail and nuance. Each is mated to a horn — a staple of Klipsch speakers — which disperses high frequencies across a wide listening area. This ensures every seat in the house is the best seat for sound quality. In addition, there are two 3" midrange drivers that excel at reproducing clear dialogue. You won't have to keep replaying the same scene just to understand the actors.
When you take the bass frequencies away from a movie soundtrack, you're left with a gaping hole. Everything just sounds a bit flat and lifeless. The R-10B's wireless subwoofer will correct that. Just find a spot anywhere in your room, sync it to the sound bar wirelessly, and you'll start to hear (and feel) just what you've been missing.
The R-10B isn't just for movies. When you want to enjoy some music, just whip out your smartphone and pair it to the sound bar. It has Bluetooth built in, so you can stream music wirelessly from your phone, tablet, or Bluetooth capable computer.
Setting up the R-10B sound bar is easy. Connect the included optical digital audio cable to your TV's optical output. Then connect the other end to the sound bar's input. Plug it in, and you're all set. The sound bar decodes Dolby® Digital signals, so it's prepared to handle the output from most TVs. There are also stereo RCA inputs in case you have an older TV without an optical output.
The Klipsch system is easy to set up and produces a good sound for the money.

As long as you can do without an arc connection it's the best bang for your buck.
Cons: No arc capability
I had a full tower speaker 5.1 system that used up space and really didn't get used. It was an Infinity system that sounded awesome. So when I decided to down size the equipment, I really didn't want to down size the sound. I heard these small sound bars that had poor sound quality because of tiny speakers. This Klipsch bar has decent size speakers that help with midrange. And the horn loaded tweeters do just fine in the high range. The 8" sub delivers the lows better than I expected. Love it! Over all, I love this sound bar system. It does the job well. It doesn't have any simulated surround function or anything like that but it's got great sound quality. Now for the down side. The Bluetooth functions aren't the greatest. Very limited range and it does have a tendency to cut out, even if your device is well within range. I don't regret buying this. I love the sound and convenience and my wife love the freed up space!
Love this soundbar - and loved the price! Crutchfield was very responsive as well!
Great sound, easy set-up. Wireless subwoofer really pops.
I like the sound of the speakers,,,but not the limitations of hooking up to stereo receiver, no HDMI connection..
Easy set up and nice to have the capability of muting the system from our cable provider's remote. One disappointment has been the performance of the sub-woofer....very weak compared to the Sony system that it replaced.
The Klipsch system is easy to set up and produces a good sound for the money.
Pros: easy to set up
I luv Klipsch customer care so it is with great reluctance that I have to say this product I could have done without. WHY? well it really does not come through as dramatic or loud. I buy Klipsch I'm thinking i'm going to be wowed! Wrong not this time...movie sound v. good, easy set up, sub lame and the center speaker well dont crank any metal through it.
Pros: set up, packaging, directions, movie sound
Cons: music sound, sub
4 Stars good sound for the money
Ordered by phone. Salesman was courteous and helpful. Product arrived before expected. Makes a welcome difference to the sound from my flat screen TV (with its speakers in the back). only problem was procedure to program TV remote didn't work, and Klipsch remote is not up to the quality of the sound unit.
Pros: Nice sounds!
Cons: Tacky remote.
Sure does beat the sound coming from the TV speakers, nice bottom end, great clarity, glad I upgraded.
Pros: Excellent bottom end. Easy to set up. Mounting.
Cons: Minimal control of adjusting sound.
Clear dialogue with just the right amount of bass for my particular application! $200 off the regular price made it even better. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Great sound, great price!
Good sound. Easy installation. I wish it were easier to stream from your phone
If your looking for a soundbar that will satisfy most listeners wants this is it. The low price at Crutchfield gives you a soundbar with a great sub woofer and clear sounding bar that will not dissapoint. Yes the remote is small however I find that better than being big and cumbersome. I am sure there are better soundbars out there however you get what you pay for and I am satified with the low price that I purchased this Klipsch for.
Pros: It's a Klipsch and does what a soundbar should do.
Cons: For the price I have no cons.
Setup was relatively easy. Everything works as it should. I`m disappointed with the bass response from the sub. Programming my cable remote was the hardest part. The instructions were clear as mud. Sound bar stands very tall and blocks the stand mounted Sony 65" BAR or receiver, making turning the tv on/off difficult.
Pros: Easy assembly Dialog sounds much better than my old Sony soundbar.
Cons: Poor to mediocre bass response, even with sub volume all the way up Difficulty programming cable remote Soundbar stands very tall. Will block the ir receiver of most stand mounted tv's. Requires an ir extender. Needs longer power chord for the sub. 6` was barely enough in my great room.
This is a very good sound bar
The sound is FANTASTIC, but the blue tooth leaves a lot to be desired. Gotta be within about 10 feet, and have nothing between the two "talking devices" or you're screwed.
Extremely easy to set up. Has great sound overall, just wished I was able to have control over the highs and mids. That being said I would highly recommend it!
Pros: Sounds great and easy to set up.
Cons: Lacks control of dialing in the sound.
Really nice sound. Not too expensive to upgrade sound for our master bedroom. Would definitely recommend.
Pros: Great sound, reasonable price.
Cons: Remote is a a bit finicky.
This is a great system. Super easy hookup. Super easy to use. The sound is great for TV or music. You won't regret this purchase.
Pros: Great sound. Easy to setup.
Cons: Really, the only thing remotely bad is that it was a little difficult to unbox it but I guess the fact that it was packed so well is actually a good thing.
This sound bar and sub woofer combination has ridiculous sound! I can't believe the clarity of dialog I now have while watching TV & movies. Playing music from my phone via Bluetooth is a snap and the sound is so rich you can actually feel the music, incredible!
Pros: Sound clarity ease of use
Cons: Sound bar is a bit long
Let's start this review off with the only reason I could recommend this product to anyone. If you exclusively would be using this device for audio from your TV and don't need any inputs to the soundbar from anything besides the limited, and basic inputs IE 1 optical cable, AUX, or RCA then this is probably a decent deal for you. The sound quality is actually really surprising to me. This is actually a really good sounding system in the area that I am using it especially considering the living room, though not that large, is open to the dinning room and then kitchen. Now onto the cons. If you buy it intending to use multiple inputs or want to use wireless capabilities such as Bluetooth don't bother. I am on my second unit and at this point done and will be refunding it and exchanging the product. Bluetooth simply doesn't work properly past about 10 feet away from the soundbar. I have tried with various phones and two laptops and the issue persists leading me to believe this product in general has a serious engineering flaw with the Bluetooth in it. If you are more than a couple feet away, someone walks in front of your device, or even simply picking up your phone the audio will cut in and out which is extremely annoying. Overall not satisfied with the purchase based on the Bluetooth completely not functioning. Hopefully Klipsch can improve on future models.
Pros: Sound Quality
Cons: Bluetooth Audio Connections
Klipsch has always been a name for quality sound. The R10B doesn't disappoint. Sound is clear and crisp, whether speech or music. The sub-woofer links seamlessly with the sound bar. With it's side firing speaker the sub adds the fullness to the audio and significant non-muddy bass impact. Being able to adjust the sub via the knob on back allows the listener to fine-tune the audio to their room, as well as to their listening preference. Bluetooth links seamlessly with Apple products. However, when finished using Bluetooth, the Bluetooth connection must be deleted from device for the Klipsch to respond to input from television. Sound from Bluetooth is good, however lacks the overall quality sound expected. While Bluetooth functionality is a plus, its' execution is disappointing and brings down the overall rating of this product. Remote provides the needed functions, without need for using tv remote or aps. Overall, components are easy to setup and use. Quality of sound, which was incentive for purchase, exceeds expectations as expected from Klipsch.
Live in Florida and was looking for a great way to play good quality music, outside and year round. Seemingly great deal on Klipsch R-10b, so I ordered it. Received quickly and set up was simple. Sounded great right out of the box, but an hour later began having annoying Bluetooth cut out problems. I rearranged the subwoofer and it seemed to help until it stopped working altogether. Wouldn't pair and could not get another sound out of it with 2 hrs of frustrating attempts. I should have listened to all the reviews describing the Bluetooth issues with this model. I believe Klipsch is ending the run of this model and know why it was such a deal. With all the bad reviews, I decided to not even troubleshoot with either Klipsch or Crutchfield and decided to switch to a different brand. The Crutchfield rep agreed whole heartedly and we decided on a Polk 9500BT which should be here tomorrow. They're sending out the new one without receiving the old one yet. I packed it up and it's on its way back. Thank you Crutchfield for outstanding customer service!
Pros: Quick set-up. Great sound. Outstanding service by Crutchfield.
Cons: Bluetooth issues make it impossible to listen to.
Very easy to set up. Great Sound. Good value!
I had a full surround sound system but when I repainted my living room and mounted the tv on the wall, I wanted to clean things up. Was considering a Samsung sound bar at a similar price when I started looking at this. Went to an electronics store and compared a very similar Klipsch with the same sub woofer to the Samsung I was looking at. Sound was night and day and when I got it home I was even more impressed. Great voice clarity at low volume and great bass at all levels. Thanks to other Crutchfield reviews I knew blue tooth would have to be close to pair so was not surprised at that. Still trying to figure out how to program volume to my Direct TV remote, but besides that I am very pleased.
Pros: Great bass, great voice at all levels
Cons: Blue tooth distance, remote pairing
Purchased for a medium sized "Lady Cave" room, away from our "real" theater system. At first, I hooked the unit up to a 10 year old TV 720 flat screen via the RCA plug connectors (which is the reason we bought this model). As I feared, the units wouldn't communicate and I got no sound whatsoever. Not to be defeated, my wife ran out and purchased a cheap replacement tv. Once we plugged in the Optical line we got immediate sound. The bluetooth worked flawlessly kicking in the subwoofer. This soundbar/subwoofer combination is a major upgrade from the tv speakers. It would have cost me well over $1,500 to install an A/V receiver and low/mid range speakers, so, given the price/performance, I'd recommend the unit. Docked a star due to the abysmal instruction manual and the fact that I had to replace an albeit antiquated television.
Pros: Much better sound than stock tv speakers. Small Subwoofer rounds out sound nicely and fills a decent sized room. Flawless bluetooth connection. Plug and Play using Optical connection.
Cons: Terrible instruction manual. No, really...it's the worst. Remote programming is awful...see instruction manual comment above. No sound using RCA plug inputs. (may have been old tv)
this sound bar system by eclipse is definitely a top seller it's plenty of power very clean sound and for the price point it is worth it. very easy to connect the subwoofer just by flipping a switch on the Soundbar and on the subwoofer I have purchase mini Soundbar systems and overall this is the best
Pros: Great Sound plenty of power very clean on watching movies you will not be disappointed
Cons: No HDMI no 4K pass-through
TV speakers sounded better. Do not recommend.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 9/25/2018 : This customer contacted our Customer Support team and set up a return. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.
I can't ask for more, since the customer service, friendly web page and delivery on time, thanks crutchfield crew
Pros: Great design wich matches perfect with the sound provided
Cons: No cons
Awesome speakers that have crisp clean sound and awesome base
Pros: Easy setup, great sound
Cons: Directions could have more information. Just follow the directions and everything works.
Great sounding speaker. Clear audio and the subwoofer is a nice addition. Fills the room with plenty of sound. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the lack of being able to use my cable remote to control the volume. You can set it up to use your TV remote to control sound but that still requires me to use 2 separate remotes. It's not a deal breaker by any means but it would be more convenient to only need one remote. The other thing I don't like is how tall it is. It blocks the IR to my TV and does not have a built in IR repeater which I had to buy separately. All in all though for the price I love this sound bar and would highly recommend it.
My dad always wanted big sound to go with his nice LG TV, but never got around to do it. Space was also an issue and we wanted things simple. So for his birthday I went for the r10b. This thing sounds awesome and set up was simple and straight forward. Fit perfectly on the mantle of the fireplace below the TV. I enjoy the bigger home theater systems but I was very impressed on how the r10 performed. You get great sound, Clarity with dialogue, good bass, and its very clean audio when you crank it up. You can even program your TV remote to control the sound bars volume. My dad had a big smile on his face and so did I.
Plenty of clear sound from a small package. This sound bar & sub were the perfect solution for a room that would've been difficult to install a 5.1 surround system in.
Love the sound. I would like a better Inst. book. The young salesman that help me was great.
Got an excellent price. Really enhances watching TV.
Pros: Lots of power. Clear sound.
Cons: When using my XFinity remote, the volume jumps per button push are way too big, making use of Klipsch remote sometimes necessary. Seems like Klipsch programming could have controlled that.
The sound is awesome and it fills the room with sound. Sounds like i am in a theater and the bass is awesome
Pros: Great bass and sound for the price.
Cons: Wish you can program other remotes to it.
Good soundbar. A lot of complaints about lack of adjustability and number of ways to input to it, the bar works great for music or movies and you dont have to figure out how to make it sound great. Plug it in and go, that's it. Nice bass, I do knock it 1 star and that's simply because setting it up to work with your tv/cable remote is a pain in the backside.
Easy to install and Bluetooth is working great so far. Dialog is crisp, music sounds decent - will not replace a 5.1 system, but knew that going into purchase.
The Klipsch R-10B sounds great, the set up was easy, and looks great.The problem I had was the instruction booklet, it stinks. The Bluetooth section just shows a bunch of pictures, says nothing about obtaining an app. Just showing pictures is their way of not having to print booklets in different languages, but for the price people pay, they should show more detail. Just my opinion.
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Crummy instructions
Very simple to get up and running, and the sound is great.
Cons: You have to be pretty much in front of the bar for the remote to work. Not a big problem, though.
Trying to upgrade your "home theater " on a budget is no small feat. However, a few hours of researching TVs and Soundbars, I decided on the Song X690E the #1 60" TV by online ratings. However, for the sound bar it wasn't so simple. Im a bit of an audiophile, i just dont have the budget to show it. There are all kinds of highly rated soundbars out there. There are also all kinds of issues. For instance some of those high tech brands soundbars like sony, samsung, And LG are not always cross brand compatible. As an example if you had a Sony tv, an LG soundbar may not be completely compatible and you may not get the full use out of all of the LG features. With that said, I chose to take a different approach. I chose to keep it simple: sound quality and build quality, within my budget of course. Thats when i found this gem of deal, The Klipsch R-10b! I happened across the "Scratch and Dent" offer and thought to myself; I know Crutchfield and I know they dont ship garbage like big box stores. So, if they are confident then so am I. Boy did it pay off! I am fairly certain the only scratches and dents were on the packaging. I have examined this unit and I cant find a single blemish. Not to mention it was still all wrapped up nice and tight in its original wrapping. Point is bling isnt always the best choice. Klipsch is well known for sound and build quality and I have always known Crutchfield to provide great products and service. Dont miss out on this deal!
Pros: Sound quality, build quality, simple operation.
Cons: My neighbors are going to hate me
Truly amazing sound!! Everyone that has heard it has been amazed!! A great buy if you are looking for an amazing theater sound system!! Easy to set up and amazing bass!!!
Pros: Everything!! Bass, clarity, easy setup!
Great set of speakers for the price!
Pros: Quality, price
Cons: Can't think of any
Sounds very good. Pairs very quickly to my phone via Bluetooth. I love that you can use the tv remote to control the sound bar volume once it's programmed. The sub is more than adequate for a small room, but my Klipsch 10" in my surround sound set up is much louder. Highly recommended.
Pros: Turns on\off along with tv. Can use tv remote to control volume. Wire less sub.
Great Sound. I have the full home theater setup in our living room, but just wanted a little oomph for a different room. The Klipsch R-10B gives a near home theater sound without all the fuss of an individual receiver, 6 speakers, and all the additional connections. Easy Bluetooth connection is definitely a plus for playing music. Considering the lesser price vs. the much more expensive price I spent on the home theater, the sound quality is amazing. Sure, the remote is crappy, but I just programmed my TV remote to control the Klipsch, so no big deal. I would recommend to anyone.
Pros: Easy setup, Optical, RCA, and Bluetooth connections, sound quality similar to much more expensive systems
Amazing sound. Crisp highs and deep bass - it's perfect for our living room. It clears up the dialogue so volume does not have to be set so loud that ears bleed when the music or explosions start! And, as usual, super customer service from Crutchfield.
Pros: Super easy set up, plug and play.
Typical Klipsch quality. The only downside I've found is that I can't use my TV or TiVo remote to adjust the volume.
Pros: Great volume and fidelity
Cons: Need a second remote
All in all its pretty good. The remote is kinda cheesy. But everything else is well built.
Having been a Klipsch owner for many years I chose R-10B without hesitation and sure glad I did. The sound is dynamic and the bass module pairs well producing an excellent sound field. Set up was as easy as it gets and the sub connected right away. This system was for our second bedroom/gym. The Bluetooth works great with our iPhones and ipad. Highly recommend this system.
Pros: Dynamic sound and good bad. Easy setup. Bluetooth works with iPhone X and iPad.
Cons: Remote could use 'real' buttons but still works good
Great sound and very easy to set up
Service and communication was fantastic and the sound system is great! Too notch company and product!
Awesome sound. Perfect for my living room
Good sound bar for the money. Extremely easy set-up. Just couldn't make out all the voices when listening to movies. The sound bar has helped significantly.
Pros: Easy setup, not too obtrusive in size.
Cons: Instructions for setup could be better, but if you read carefully, and follow it works just fine.
Excellent sound with deep rich tones and bass that you can feel all without going over the top. Really enhances the movie experience. A gigantic improvement over the original TV audio.
Pros: Step up to theater audio on your TV
Cons: Original TV audio is weak and diluted when compared to the quality you can have
Great sound, nicely made. Instructions are a bit to brief.. yes it is simple to hook up, but I feel like some of the buttons need further explanation. Overall very happy with purchase.
Pros: Great sound Reasonable price
Cons: A bit larger than I expected Needs more instructions
Great product for someone looking for top of the line entry sound bar system. Listening to a Kilpsch next to an LG or Samsung of higher price is no contest. Klipsch wins every time.
Pros: Good price point. Quality sound. Easy set up. Bluetooth has excellent connection.
Cons: If looking for pounding bass or surround sound effect this sound bar is not for you.
Amazing bass sound. Easy to set up! Great price!
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: Bar is a little large in size,
Can't beat it for the price. Sounds great
Very reasonable sound for the price.
Great packaging, delivery, and sound quality.
I love this product, totally worth the money!
I saw previous reviews rating this thing at less than 5 stars. Evidently they care more about bells and whistles than sound quality. The entire Klipsh line blows the competition away! I just wish they would make a belt clip speaker.
Pros: Clear, crisp, and clean. Great bass.
Cons: It wouldn't hurt to have a display.
Great product for very little money. Superb lows,crisp mids and just the right amount of highs.Setup was a breeze! I like that I can pair it to my I phone!
Pros: ease of use quality build fantastic sound price
This Klipsch Reference R-10B is a great sound bar. It's powerful and loud for two speakers and a sub which makes it great for listening to music or watching a concert. For films it might take you a bit to get use to it especially if your going from a full 5.1 or 7.1 theater system. The system is room filling and great for a bedroom or small living room and the blue tooth sub is awesome I think it will surprise you if you buy it.
Pros: Powerful, easy to setup, wall mountable, has RCA connections for stereo devices.
Cons: Bar is big, decent sound for movies
I see that the reviews are for the most part favorable. The people who don't like it appear to have been sent a damage product and or are trying to compare it to a high end Entertainment center. I'd say this is a good product for the price. I have thousands into a high end home entertainment system in my living room that this does not compare too as one would expect. I was having some problems with my Sony TV in my master bedroom and thought a sound bar may eliminate the weird noises coming from my tv. It did. It also provides bass via the sub that few if any TV's really offer. I was not able to use the optical connection or the RC connector and had to use the head phone jack on my TV to the sound bar. Pretty much plugged it all in and turned it on and it works. Took a few minutes to dial the sub woofer volume in and that's it. NOTE the only cable other than the power cords that comes with this is the optical cable. You do not get the RC connector or head phone to RC cable so if you can not use the optical connector you'll be heading to the store to buy one. Buy that here or before your unit arrives and your set up should go smooth or your probably doing something wrong. Crutchfield has excellent customer service so call them if things are not working.
Pros: Easy set up...pretty much plug it all in and turn it on. Good quality and appearance. Easy mounting (comes with mounting template)
Cons: Poor directions, no RC cable or headphone to RC connector cable. Cheep items that should have been included.
Got this for a steal at well under $300. Provides great sound for music for a sound bar as well.
Pros: Great sound at an affordable price.
Cons: Weak Bluetooth connection.
I have a small town home living room. This sound bar fills that space quite well. Booming low end from sub woofer. No EQ for sound bar, though. I might like a bit more mid-range from it. I listen to/watch a lot of music and sports and it sounds great. No movie feedback to give. Bought the scratch & dent for more savings. Box came destroyed but system was perfect. Easy set up.
Pros: sounds good, powerful sub woofer (has volume knob), great price
Cons: no EQ, tiny remote, sound bar is tall so might block your TV remote sensor
that cool thanks i like this, very good sound..
My son loves these speakers. He is 15 so that says a lot to me that he likes them because he is picky!!
WOW, that was my 1st response. what a fantastic sounding system. I have a full blown Denon 7.2.2 system in my living room and this small system will give it a run for the money. if you are looking for a small awesome sounding system that is easy to use, THIS IS IT..
Pros: Smaller in size then a full system sounds awesome easy to use.
The base. It's all about that base, bout that base, bout that base. No treble Actually, this bar how all of it. No, there are not a ton of frilly features. That's not what this system is about. Plug it, pair it, and feel the earth move.
Pros: The base. Ease of set up
Cons: No equalizer
Good value for the money Very easy instillation and setup Bluetooth paring the easiest I done I would recommend
Do yourself a big favor and buy an integrated stereo amplifier with an optical cable and digital input so you can run a cd player and your TV into a pair of decent bookshelf speakers which will far, far out do this system. This is my second Klipsch sound bar disappointment.
Pros: Loud if you want. Good mid range
Cons: Lots of it, but bass is muddy unless very leveled out with the rest of the system.
Good quality sound. Bass could be a little stronger though in my opinion. Easy to install. Constructed very well.
As advertised the R-10B is a very easy setup and the sound lives up to all previous posts regarding clear, crisp voice audio from the TV. If I play music from my Apple Sound is way above average in both range and its ability to fill the room. I have 10ft ceilings in a medium size great room configuration so the sub sits approximately 15-18ft. from TV with soundbar above the TV. Two complaints about this unit is the inability of the R-10B to adjust the sound of commercials from TV. If you don't mute the sound sometimes depending on the commercial you get a much higher volume which is annoying. The second is the cheesy remote and user manual. I use a DirecTV remote for adjustment of volume, go to YouTube for directions on how to program a third party remote. If Klipsch upgraded these two issues then the R-10B would have gotten 5 stars. Buy this on sale you will not be disappointed!
Pros: Clear crisp sound Setup is simple Fantastic value at the sale price from Crutchfield
Cons: Lack of user controls from remote i.e. volume indicator Inability to control sound of commercials Remote Manual
Great sound in a small package. I previously owned an entry-level Samsung sound bar. This blows that away. Granted I got it at a great deal but nevertheless it sounds amazing. The sub woofer really packs a punch.
Pros: Mid and High Sounds, Subwoofer hits hard. 3-D sound feels like sound surround.
Cons: No volume indicator
Was quite surprised at how much bass an 8" sub-woofer can produce. The treble and mid-range are very clear as well. Overall, I found the R-10B to be well worth the money and would buy again if I needed another.
Pros: Fairly compact with really good sound. Fine for anything except really discerning audiophiles.
Cons: None for my purposes.
Good quality sound bar. Temporary install on a 32" tv while waiting for 55" in new house. Sounds great at "apartment-appropriate" volumes but I cranked it up and it will definitely fill the living room of the new house. Only on small thing I don't like. The sound bar goes to sleep automatically when the tv goes off. When the tv is turned back on and the bar wakes up, the Surround is turned off. You have to hit the 3D button on the remote to turn the Surround back on. It's a small annoyance but seems like a silly design choice.
Sounds great and at a great price!
Simple to setup. Great sound for the money. Hard to think you could find better for the price.
Great product! Wonderful sound. Very fast service.
Love it! Easily links to TV remote and automatically turns on and off with tv. Sound is amazing for a smaller budget friendly package. Would highly recommend.
Pros: Sound Remote power Appearance
We are really pleased with this product. I was amazed at how fast I received my order, you guys are on it. This is the second sound system we have purchased from you and we are very pleased with them. Thank you for your prompt service and making sure the customer is happy.
It was a great present for my father
I was wowed when I got the system hooked up. Everything was perfect from talking to Britt on the phone who helped me out immensely to my order coming in three days earlier than expected. Sound quality of my system is unbelievable Crutchfield is definitely my go to. from now on.
Pros: Easy to set up. Outstanding sound very nice looking.
Cons: The only con would be to not on the system.
Real simple to set up and sounds great!
Pros: Simple to set up Sounds great Great for movies and music
Delivery was two days. Set up was easy. Sound is good. Sound on certain TV stations is louder than others. The sound bar is randomly turning itself on.
Great sound. Only complaints are when going from TV broadcast to commercial, volume goes waaay up, causing me to scramble to find remote. Not sure if this is a TV setting, though.
Excellent sound quality added to my room,thank you crutchfield for being so greatly customer friendly
Good for the price
Very easy to set up Makes a huge difference in sound of the TV. Especially the dialogue As for music, the sound is very good for what it is. Definitely worth the money.
Pros: Great sound even at low volume.
Cons: Manual is pretty much useless.
It's a big sound! Just as important it sounds great at low levels to.
If you want a cinema quality sound, this is the sound bar to get. From the quality you are getting, this is a bargain. Always a thrill watching movies. Heck, even watching news is a blast! Forget about CNET's review regarding poor bluetooth playback from non aptX device, this bar sounds great.
Pros: Voice clarity. Crisp highs. Pounding bass. Bluetooth music is great even with non aptX device.
Cons: No volume level display. No HDMI.
Just purchased a new 4K TV and 4k Blu Ray player and wanted great sound to go with them. This Klipsch sound bar is great! The sound is awesome and the wireless subwoofer is a great add on as well as you can place it in the best possible location to make your sound environment as good as possible. Ease of use with one LED light to signal which input is being used and bluetooth connectivity to allow your smart phone to play through the sound bar as well. The sound bar is a little taller than I would have likes as I wanted to place the sound bar directly under the TV, but that's a minor point on my end and easy to remedy by a different placement. The Klipsch name, the price and overall ease of use were the overall deciding factor on purchasing this product.
Pros: Awesome sound Ease of use Price point
Cons: Sound bar taller than anticipated
Great product for the money. You will not get a better sound at this price anywhere. Crutchfield is the best. They know more about the products they sell than all the other stores. Nothing but totally satisfied
Awesome sound!! Great value! Would definitely recommend this to others.
Pros: Very easy setup. Great sound.
Simple looking soundbar with no LED read outs on the front which I like. One small LED to inform you of the input being used and blinks on volume change. Almost impossible to distinguish between RCA and optical inputs based on LED if you use the bar for both music and TV as we do. (Yellow and green lights supposedly but I can't tell the difference.) Sometimes it's slow to recognize a change in inputs and takes a second to start up after resuming play on the TV but not sure if that's the TV or the soundbar. Litereally 1 second though. A great sound bar for the price though. Great sound as to be expected from a Klipsch product.
Amazing sound from Klipsch. We compared to sound bars at the big box stores and think this sounds best. Easy to set up, clean and simple. It's not a 7.1 surround sound setup but it really satisfied what we wanted. The only glitch we encountered was getting the satellite remote programmed so it all works seamlessly. Instructions are vague for that process. The satellite website support page solved that quickly. We also listen to music because it is Bluetooth ready for apps from our iPad.
Pros: Great sound! Simple setup. Wireless subwoofer. Bluetooth capability.
Cons: Vague directions Only adjustment is volume.
The system arrived intact. Set up was easy. It easily paired with my Sony TV. The only negative, which I already knew about, was its size which obstructs the TV remote receptor. It cannot sit in front of the TV on the same stand, necessitating moving the sound bar to a location above the television set. The sound is great, no problems so far.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Size of the unit however this probably contributes to its good sound.
Pros: Great sound and easy setup. Voice clarity a big improvement. Deep bass movie sounds. Using the Directv to control sound a BIG plus. Cons: Static "popping" when switching channels. Example: When switching between satellite channels FS1 (Fox Sports 1) and ESPN HD, received frequent "pops". Same when fast forwarding a DVD recording and returning to normal speed. Spoke with Crutchfield tech support twice. LG Ultra 4k 49" TV has a choice of two settings for audio-out to an external speaker (TV speaker was turned off and was using the optical cable). Choices are AUTO or PCM. Changing the choice to PCM seems to cure the problem. This wasn't really a good solution because the audio quality was obviously better with the AUTO choice. Second weird problem was that the volume would mysteriously decline all by itself. Was not muted but fell below hearing level. Pressing the up volume restored the problem. Agreed on swapping out this soundbar for the Yamaha YAS-207. Have yet to receive it. GLTA.
Pros: Great sound Directv remove controlled sound level
Cons: Static "popping" sound Loss of volume
Great while it lasted. All of 3 1/2 months then one day the wireless sub stopped pairing. I am out of luck. I've had enough.
Pros: sounds great
Cons: when it works
Awesome sounding system and Crutchfield is a great company you can trust! Sound quality is great, the footprint of the system is small and Klipsch makes great speaker!
Pros: Sound Quality Size of system Bluetooth capability Looks Dealing with Crutchfield - had best price and I found out the customer service is A+
Cons: Material of the Subwoofer is very very fragile and will scratch easily It is a hassle to connect to your receiver if you choose to do so Price is a bit much but so are a lot of lesser quality speaker systems
Easy to install and sounds is so cool! I love it!!
Excellent soundbar! Deep bass and voices are clear. I replaced an Onkyo surround sound with thi.
Pros: Easy setup. Excellent sound.
Cons: Have no complaints.
Great sound! Great buy.
Bought last Sept. The sound is good and the size is perfect for my 46" TV, but I had issues with the mode always defaulting to any of the options other than the TV, and the system continually turns on even after I've turned it off. In December I reported the issues to Crutchfield, which provided me a new soundbar and subwoofer at no cost, but I still have the same issue with the default mode and the system not staying off (even when my TV is off). Bluetooth is inconsistent (connection drops from 10 feet away). Good sound for the price, but the price indicates its technical limitations (no HDMI jacks).
Pros: Easy setup Very good sound and bass
Cons: Defaults to the RCA plug input instead of optical (my TV connection) Turns on even after being off for hours (and the TV off as well) VERY small remote
Let me start by saying I picked this up from Crutchfield when on sale. Now at this price point...it's a steal! The 8 inch sub gets low. It hits decent and will impress most for it's size. The soundbar itself is clean and wide sounding thanks to its horn loaded tweeters. 3D mode it nothing but a stereo enhancer making movies sound punchier and more dynamic but should be turned off for music. Sound bar itself is a little "Tall" and can block IR sensors. The remote is a joke! Now at the the full price I would definitely spend your money on something else. BUT...at the sale price you can't go wrong! Put this bar up against any other soundbar at this price and I think you'll be happy!
Pros: Wide Sound Clean...no distortion Nice Sub tones for it's size
Cons: May Block TV Remote is horrible No HDMI inputs (Only Optical & RCA)
Great sound and easy to set up. We wanted a simple soundbar at a reasonable price and was happy to purchase our first Klipsch product.
Pros: Great sound easy setup.
Cons: Missing written guidance for wall hanging.
You can't ask for anything more for the money. At this price point it's as good as it gets. Very happy!
Klipsch sound bars are superb!!! Listened to many sound bars, and the Klipsch has better weight, clarity, and overall sound quality for TV, Bluetooth, and movies! Love it! Cant beat the price. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Sound, bass, clarity.
Cons: No visual volume indicator and remote a little small and cheap feeling.
The sound is great. Connected to my TV, I have no complaints. The Bluetooth leaves much to be desired. It's supposed range is 30ft, in real life it's more like 12. When it doesn't skip, it sounds good, not as good as the optical line connection, but good enough.
Pros: Vastly improves the TV sound
Cons: Bluetooth connection is very finicky
Big improvement over my previous system.
I own many Klipsch products. This soundbars doesn't disappoint. Way better than Bose in performance and value. I'll leave a quote, "No highs, no lows, it must be Bose".
Pros: Great value, Crutchfield sold on sale less than half of msrp.
Cons: None really, buy with confidence
Setup is the easiest process ever, it literally is just turning everything on. Volume is programmable to my Roku remote. Audio quality is quite good, does a brilliant job of filling in sound in my 26x30 garage. The included wall mounting template is invaluable to setting it up where you want in no more than 5 minutes.
love it. Needed sound bar to get better sound with out upgrading to a full home theater. The sound bar sound is great and the wireless sub is quite impressive. Glad I made the purchase.
Super easy setup, and sounds great. Would have maybe liked hdmi connection as an option but sound is better with optical so not a huge deal.
Sub is the gem of this setup. I purchased after mulling over using a traditional HT setup in my office area that I converted into a Dad room but having young children the metal cabinets were appealing. (Think little fingers and paper cones). The main speaker seems slightly muffled and wish there were more sound options other than standard and 3D. For the price and ease of connections I am happy with the purchase. I think this is a great bedroom or office setup but coming from a full setup don't expect anything superb off axis. For the price sub is far superior to anything else in the range.
Pros - excellent sound, much better than I expected for the price! Great being able to play music via Bluetooth. Installation was quick and synching control with my TV remote was a breeze. Cons - the Bluetooth range is not very good so I just leave my phone next to the soundbar when playing music via Bluetooth but that is only area that needs improvement. As with all of my other purchases from Crutchfield, the customer service and quick delivery was outstanding!
WOW...defiantly got more then I expected from this item. The price is unbeatable and Crutchfield is the best when it comes to products and service...Extremely happy with my purchase.
Pros: Nice sounds
great sound. bass really comes to life.
Pros: great sound. bass really adds to the movie experience. voices come out clearer.
Cons: pretty big unit. Not as slim as some styles these days.
This product is awesome!
Pros: Great sound, easy hook up.
Ummm. WOW. I'm an audiophile who previously would never even consider a sound bar. I have Klipsch towers with dual 12" subs. With that said, I bought this package for my parents who wanted something simple with a small footprint with decent sound. After about a 2 minute install process, I began testing this setup and I can you Klipsch does NOT disappoint. Not quite the quality of the Def Tech, Sonos, or Bose (in order of preference), but those are 3 times the price when adding a sub. This is an incredible value for a very clear center speaker with deep bass. I'd say this is the best sound bar setup at this price point and it includes a great sub. If you are a bass lover like me, spring for the R-20B which includes a 10" sub.
I bought this system a week ago. Last evening I was listening to Pandora through the BT setup. I had this thing cranked all the way up. Sound is fantastic. Only downside is the BT has no range. I leave my iPhone plugged in 2ft away. Anymore than 6 feet it cuts out. Definitely recommend buying for this price point. Sound is extremely clear.
The sound bar is an awesome piece of work, my wife and I love it. We have a lot of concerts on D.V. D.'s and can't get over the great sound we're enjoying. Thank you Sam. Plus the head phones I bought couldn't be used for my T. V . so I hooked it to my computer and I can jam all night without disturbing my wife .Thank all of you guys and gal, for your help and support.
I Great sound, easy setup at a great price.
Cons: Too many remotes.
Love this sound bar!!! It sounds amazing while watching tv, gaming, watching a movie or streaming music. The bar has great bass and clear and great sounding mid and his. I would recommend this to anyone interested in buying it you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Sound quality Bass Ease of setup
This Klipsch soundbar was very easy to install and the sound quality is very good.
Cons: none so far.
Easy install and sounds great,
Pros: high quality look and construction, easy install and set up.
Cons: non so far
After doing quite a bit of research and going to stores to listen to various sound bars from many different brands, I was able to find this same sound bar in a local store to see what the output sounded like. When I got back home, I found a deal on the unit through Crutchfield. Once Inrecieved the sound bar, I was excited to get it up and going. I was blown away with the quality of the sound and the simplicity of the design as well. The unit is well made. The subwoofer is a great size and the output is perfect. The range of sound was impressive and I am able to pick up bits of sounds in music that I hadn't noticed I'm my previous experiences with different systems and listening devices. I give this Klipsch unit a big 2 thumbs up!
Pros: Great range of highs and lows. Wireless sub. Reliable brand. Well made housing.
Cons: Would recommend a better optical cable than the one it comes with. Other than that, I got nothing
Once you go more than 5' away the Bluetooth connection becomes distorted. When connected to a music source the sound does not fill the room. It may be better for smaller rooms Sound works better with the television.
Pros: Works well with the television.
Cons: Does not work well in bigger rooms. Bluetooth connectivity only works within 5 feet of the unit.
I love my new sound bar, the sound is awesome, watching action packed movie fills my room with a awesome sound. I willmake sure to tell all my friends about your product. Klipsch
Great improvement over TV speakers. The small subwoofer really brings out the bass. As always, awesome service from Crutchfield.
Pros: Great sound for a small speaker
Cons: None so far
Great Sound!!! Love it!!
Sounds incredible. Subwoofer doesn't miss a beat and is completely in synch with soundbar. Klipsch does it again!
Great value and nice deep bass from the sub. Wakes up my home theater setup for sure. Need another for my 2nd tv!
The sound quality is very good for the price and looks amazing. I would highly recommend for a medium sized room.
Pros: The sound quality is great. Fills a medium size room with great bass and highs. I would highly recommend.
Cons: Limited mounting options if you are floating it under an articulating TV Mount. It is designed to mount on wall or resting on table top.
Sound quality is very good the only issue I have is that the bluetooth range is not as good as I hoped it would be. Overall I like the product as I have many different Klipsch products and have been satisfied with them all. I would recommend this sound bar.
Pros: Good sound, easy installation, typical Klipsch quality
Cons: Bluetooth range
Christmas gift for Son, Daughter-in-law and Grandson. To compliment the Reference R-10B, they purchased a 55" 4k UHD TV, found right location, installed, and are very pleased with the sound. Son described it as "crisp". I thought an excellent one word accurate description. No surprise as Klipsch has been an innovator in the world of acoustics for many decades. Excellent purchase. Thank You Crutchfield!
Pros: Authentic Klipsch Sound - Ease of installation
Great system for the money! Doesn't replace a full surround sound system, but in a smaller room you don't need that much power. This system gives the sound a lot of range and depth, movies sound awesome, and it was easy to set up! My cable box remote controls volume, the Klipsch system does auto on/off when it senses TV input. Only need the remote for input toggle on the sound bar. Wall mount was a breeze with the supplied template, subwoofer is behind the couch out of sight.
I sent this as a gift for my son and family. They loved it! Delivered on time in the peak of the Christmas rush! Said they would. They did it! Nice.
Great product at a great price point. Very high quality fit and finish.A dramatic improvement over the rear mounted speakers on my flat panel tv. Very easy to install and get up and running. Makes it almost unnecessary to use surround sound to watch a movie......
Pros: Ease of setup, sound quality, fit and finish, price.
Cons: Would want more bass for a larger room.
Bought this for my wife's garden/sunroom. Fits on her TV cabinet with the sub-woofer in an out-of-the-way corner. Excellent sound for music and movies; dialogue, especially for the TV dramas she likes, is quite a bit clearer than the TV speakers. Works well with her Harmony 650 remote control.
Cons: Height blocks the TV remote receiver so had to raise the TV a bit.
Sounds Great! Amazed! Having a slight issue with loosing input signal, but, i'm not sure at this point what the culprit is.
Great sound. Nice looks. This is a high quality sound bar that makes a TV sound intelligible. Great bass. The subwoofer paired immediately with no effort. The connections to the TV were very easy. The instructions for how to learn the remote volume settings weren't great, but after a few minutes I figured it out. I was able to program my TV remote to the soundbar so I never will have to use the little remote. Bluetooth works great for me. No complaints.
Pros: Awesome sound, good looks, easy to connect
Cons: Instruction pamphlet could be better
I purchased this for my husband and he loves it! I did a lot of research before making my decision but I am familiar with the brand as we got my daughter a portable speaker in this brand and it's amazing. The set up was very easy, you can play music off your phone also. The quality of sound is great, there is a lot of depth in the sound. Couple minor things that may need a redesign is the subwoofer control being on the back and the fact that the remote cant sink in with the cable remote but that still does not take away from the quality. Customer service and "chat" as well the fast and free shipping from Crutchfield was superb! And a Happy husband.
We bought one of these sound bars a few years ago and love it. We compared other brands and the Klipsch won hands down. It has the clarity you want for enhanced voices and turns TV into theatre with it's amazing depth and bass. It's handy to be able to place the sub anywhere in the room that there is an outlet, because of it's Bluetooth connection. When I saw Crutchfield's sale price I ordered one for my parents as a Christmas gift. My first pair of Klipsch speakers were Heresy II's back in 1987 (they still sell them under their Heritage line) and have been a Klipsch fan ever since.
Bluetooth performance was miserable.
Pros: Sounds OK
Cons: POOR Bluetooth performance!
Great sound. Went from Samsung in tv speakers to acoustic research speakers run through my Yamaha receiver. Still sound was lacking clarity we needed. Got the Klipsch 10b soundbar w/sub and now have theater quality sound ! Great purchase at a bargain price. Plus, customer care walked me through setting up my att remote to control sound and all with just one remote. Thx guys !
Not bad for the price. Exceeded my expectations.
Works great . Could not believe how well built thi product was . You can tell by the weight of the box it came in , that this is quality made
Great product for the money with the sale price. Looks great and has a simple remote. Working on getting my tv remote to control volume. Plenty of bass when you need it. Nice bass control knob on back of subwoofer to help adjust the amount of bass you desire. Simple hookup. Doesn't replace true surround sound system but does exactly what I need.
Pros: Great added subwoofer with bass control.
Cons: Doesn't replace a true surround sound system.
It works great. Sometimes some kind of fan sound started coming from soundbar. It became big issue, when you play medleys.
Pros: Simple plug n play soundbar & subwoofer
Cons: some noise self generated all of sudden there is no 3.5 mm audio input
Bought this to use for sound for my new man cave TV because we all know those flat screen TVs tend to disappoint where sound is concerned. The TV was back-ordered so it hasn't been mounted yet but I have been using the R10B with a couple hand held devices for music and I have to say it rivals a lot of music system speaker setups I've heard. Very happy with my purchase.
Pros: Sound Quality Price Point (Black Friday purchase)
Cons: None so far
Excellent sound!!!! Perfect for the bedroom!!!
Music sound is WOW outstanding! Extremely well balanced bass! Tv sound is average. 3D surround is terrible-I'll never use it. Soundbar is too tall for sitting in front of most tv's on stands. I'm going to buy a 2x12 to set my tv on so I can see the bottom of tv. No bass or treble adjustments.
Great sound only thing that can be added is to have option to adjust sound
Pros: Very easy setup
I really wanted to love this soundbar, but it has a fatal flaw. I ordered the first one from Crutchfield a few weeks ago, set it up and connected it to my Pixel phone via bluetooth. It connected and sounded great at first, but as soon as i walked more than about 5' from the soundbar, the bluetooth signal started to break up and the music cut in and out. I used it like this for a couple weeks before returning it to Crutchfield, and the bluetooth performance only got worse if anything. I called both Crutchfield and Klipsch and they both assured me that this was just a bad unit and to give it another try. SO i sent it back and got another one, set it up and yes exact same thing happened again. I will say that it does sound great when you're watching a movie or have your phone within 5', but if you care at all about bluetooth connectivity do your self a favor and keep looking. What a hassle this was.
Pros: Great sound, loud.
Cons: Horrible bluetooth range
For the money...it's the best. Easy to set up, easy to program remote, except that it will not turn off with the cable remote, which is no big deal for me. Sound quality is excellent. There is no comparison in the sound between the tv speakers and the sound bar. It does cut out every now and then but I feel that has more to do with the cable signal we receive than the sound bar because it varies from channel to channel. All in all, great product for the senior citizen that wants to be able to hear there tv.
Pros: easy set up
Cons: Won't shut off with cable remote
Works as expected. Setup was simple
Have used this item for a couple of weeks now. It provides crisp clear sound with a solid bass. I recommend it!!! Advice from Crutchfield's rep (SAM) was excellent!!
Pros: Great sound!!!
Great sound and price, looks good. Wish you could control sub volume from remote, unless you have the manual power button off the sound bar turn on by itself.
Pros: Great sound when compared to other sound bars in this price range.
Cons: Dont like that it turns on by itself. Wish it had sub control on remote.
I bought this product for my son. First, the product appearance is solid, with a very high end finishing. Connection was very easy, including pairing as it connect automatically when you select it in your phone. The best is to come: the sound is loud and clear, and the bass is very deep and solid. Some songs came out simply perfect, with an ultra clear sound. Sound is so good I decided to replace my 20 years old Klipsh bookshelf in my family room by the R-20B.
Easy installation, great sound, great product, I would buy again. I'm very impressed with the quality sound and performance.
Pros: Simple installation.
Cons: None at this time.
I have put this Klipsch R-10B with a 4k Vizio TV that has an excellent picture, but the sound is lacking. The sound produced is much richer and I am pleased with the sound bar. I will not give it 5 stars as the documentation with it is poor and it will not pair with the direct TV remote that is the main remote used with the TV. I think I will call Crutchfield to see if they have any thoughts as it would get 5 stars if this feature worked. It is a significant flaw not to be able to control sound with the TV remote.
Really like this soundbar. Doesn't have the newest technology and features but it sounds great. For comparison, I replaced a dying Pioneer receiver and two Sony floor-standing speakers with this soundbar and the soundbar is not noticeably different which is great given the soundbar's much smaller form factor and visual appeal. I did have to wire everything through the tv which could be a problem for some setups but was not for mine.
Excellent bass. Met all my expectations.
100% happy with this sound bar. The sound is amazing with excellent bass! Easy to set up and I love the fact that you can connect with bluetooth.
Super easy to set up, great Klipsch quality. Couldn't be more pleased
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: none yet
Amazing sound bar system. This is my first one, I can't believe how good it sounds.
Pros: Great Sound Has wireless bluetooth sub (just needs an outlet to be plugged into) Looks great
Cons: beyond poor instructions, although it is still pretty easy to set up if you have any sort of electronics experience.
Enjoyed reading the other reviews. Yes I wanted more bass and this system provided that. The setup was basic & Klipsch provided a wall installation guide for perfect alignment. The bass has a volume control that I like. Very satisfied with my purchase and the 2day Crutchfield delivery.
This added the sound we wanted in out open floor plan. The sound bar lays perfectly in our entertainment center and the blue-tooth bass speaker is easy to position wherever you want it. The system also puts out very good quality sound and great base.
Pros: Very simple to install. Great customer service.
Cons: None so far.
So far so good. Very easy set up. Bluetooth pairing a little iffy
I'm giving this product 5 stars because it was very easy to setup, great sale price, well constructed and solid, and sounds fantastic! I needed a soundbar for my 50" TV and this fit the need very nicely. Occasionally the soundbar remote light blinks on/off and will not respond to the remote - I found that turning the soundbar on/off using the switch on the back solves this issue.
Pros: Easy to setup Good clear sound
This unit is easy to install, with the wireless subwoofer having no issues linking with the soundbar. Haven't pushed the speakers hard, but love this unit as it is easy to hear the tv at very low volumes.
Pros: Easy to install Wireless subwoofer Works well at low volume
Great sounding, clear and crisp. Easy to setup out of the box. Its a taller than I thought it would be, but it worked out OK. Would definitely would buy again.
I got a great deal on these and they sound great. No technical stuff here. Unbox, hook up some wires, turn it on and listen. Music sounds great, T.V. sounds great.
Pros: Easy to install, looks and sounds great.
Cons: none yet.
VERY easy setup and pairing with my Tv .More power than I can use if I want to keep my neighbors happy.Lol! Love that subwoofer has adjustable tuning knob for the bass. I am very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Perfect fit and set up
Cons: none so far wish I could really play it loud, but it would really make the neighbors unhappy.
THIS PURCHASE WAS A GIFT. I HAD PURCHASED A KLIPSCH SOUND BAR A FEW YEARS AGO AND I AM ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED WITH ITS PERFORMANCE. I KNEW THAT THE RECIPIENT WOULD BE EQUALLY IMPRESSED BECAUSE SHE HAD COMMENTED ON THE ROOM FILLING SOUND FROM MY SPEAKER.
Cons: THE SHIPPING PACKAGING IS VERY POORLY DESIGNED.
Amazing sound! Only 1 issue I had was the infrared signal from the remote is the same as Amazon fire remote. The movie I'm watching rewinds 10 seconds when I put the volume down. Should be a quick fix I just haven't had time to look into it.
Pros: Sound quality, wireless but still powerful subwoofer, System doesn't look like a cheap sound bar looks professional.
Cons: Remote infrared signal clashes with Amazon Fire remotes
Easy to set-up and great sound
Great sounding product and excellent base for a little sub. Package was delivered as promised and undamaged. Setup was very easy and Klipsch provided the remote codes to control the volume with my directv remote.
Turned our entire house into a theater. This setup is amazing for the price! The subwoofer has depth beyond LG or Samsung (my opinion). Also, easy to setup and integrates with Apple TV. Love this setup.
Pros: Luxury finish, high end quality and top notch sound.
Really impressed with this sound bar. Was so easy to hook up and sounds great.
I always have music on at my Lakehouse and was not happy with the sound of the Samsung sound bar. I called Crutchfield for more information and they recommended the Klipsch R-10B as a great overall sound system for audio and tv watching. I love the clean sound and good bass the system has, the sub is in a smaller box that I could hide in a corner. Although I bought it as an overall sound system I was surprised when I turned on the tv and the sound bar recognized it and made it easy to listen to the tv using the Klipsch sound bar! I used to just put up with the tv speakers due to the hassle of toggling through audio inputs and outputs, now I just turn on the tv and get to hear great sound! Very happy with this sound bar, no regrets
Pros: Easily syncs with Bluetooth or tv, sounds much better than my Samsung it replaced. Use mainly for Bluetooth but since it came on automatically with my tv, I now use it for everything! Easy to set up
Cons: Wish it had an audio jack
First, I called to find out more information about soundbars and their connections to TVs and Pandora. The person I talked to was very knowledgeable, answered my questions and recommended a system to me. What was so unusual about the conversation was that he listened to me very carefully, heard my expectations and recommended a system that was within my price range. He made no attempt to up sell me. It was refreshing to deal with a company that sees its profit in making every customer happy rather than maximizing each sale. The R-10B arrived very quickly, installed in less than 10 minutes and worked with the TV and Pandora immediately. The subwoofer required nothing beyond plugging it into 110. It figured out everything else. The sound quality is excellent, much better than all the ones at another retailer I tried earlier. I am very pleased and will return to Crutchfield again.
Pros: easy to install Great value Great sound
Cons: remote must be in the sight line of the bar.
Tired of all the wires, speaker stands, and other miscellaneous gear ... just wanted to keep it simple. We were looking for that sound-bar/Sub-Woofer thing. Bose was a frontrunner when looking for systems, along with several Samsung units. Note that we also checked out Polk, Martin-Logan, and Definitive Technology ... and they are solid contenders as well. But after much research and consideration to cost, size, functionality, and features, we decided to give Klipsch a shot. It's been many years, but owned a pair of Klipsch speakers back in the 70's were good stuff then so why not ! Originally we were going to purchase the Klipsch R-20B, but due to the configuration of our Family room/entertainment we downsized to the Klipsch R-10B. So placed the order with our Advisor/associate (Taylor was excellent), and the clock started ticking. Fast forward to delivery, was timely but the box which the unit was packed in was beat-up a little (concern). However, unpacked everything with no apparent damage. Set-Up was a snap, although I did take advantage of the Tech-Support in one area which I will discuss here. We have Optical Digital Audio connections both on our TV, and on our cable box. So called in, waited approximately 6-7 minutes, and was then greeted by a Tech. Can't remember his name (chill guy), but awesome ... and suggested using the HDMI from the cable box to TV along with connecting the Optical Digital Audio from the TV to the sound-bar
Pros: Great design, and features of this unit for the price. Easy set-up of equipment, and the cable remote is easy to program as well (we have Comcast). Great sound, and you can balance the Bass level which is adjustable on the back of the Sub-Woofer to suit your preferences.. Note that most of your connecting cables (including the Optical Digital Audio cable) come with the unit as well. Just an all around winner !
Cons: I'm not electronically inclined, and was OK ... but could have used a little better directions. Just take your time, and you will be OK. Like other folks noted in their reviews, it's a little tricky when switching the sound-bar between the TV and a music source (if your bluetoothing music say ... from your phone or alternate source to the sound-bar. You just need to play with the source control on the sound-bar itself, as it's a snap using the remote control which comes with unit.
Very happy with the product. Considering upgrading and getting the next model up for my family room. Love it.
Pros: Easy hook up and great sound.
Cons: Wish I would have purchased the more powerful item. Will soon do that and move this one to my bedroom.
I've been a Klipsch fan since the 80's but had gotten away from the brand with the digital age. I'm glad I came back and wonder why I didn't do it sooner. After buying a small Bluetooth speaker on sale I was reminded of what drew me to Klipsch products in the first place . I wanted a new soundbar for a 55" Hitachi TV I had just bought and found this Bluetooth model on sale at Crutchfield. It came promptly and sounds as good as I expected. The only drawback is no HDMI connection but gave me a lot of bang for the buck. The sound blows away a comparably priced Samsung I own. I highly recommend this product.
Pros: Great sound, especially lower and mid range
Cons: No HDMI
Bought this from the bargain (scratch and dent) corner for a great price. Arrived promptly at my door in a banged up box but to my surprise I could not find a dent or a scratch. Set up took less than 5 minutes with my old 2nd generation ipod touch and bluetooth. I set it up in my garage man cave as I was looking for a bluetooth setup only (no wires, no receiver etc). I can set the equalizer on my old ipod to change the acoustics some and the subwoofer is manually adjustable. So far so good, I am happy with my purchase.
Pros: See above
Awesome sound quality! Very quick to assemble. Exceeded expectations!
Pros: Very easy to connect! Great sound!
I love it. We put this in our living room so we could move our home theater setup to a different room. The living room is 700 s.f. with tile floor and vaulted ceiling. Surround sound bounced off every hard surface. The sound bar has good sound and since it is coming from one direction it makes listening to tv and movies much easier. Setup was incredibly simple. Maybe too simple as it would be nice to have at least bass & treble setting. Still, it is perfect for our needs after two days.
Pros: Ease of setup Looks great Fantastic help making the purchase decision from Crutchfield customer support.
Cons: Operation instructions a bit vague.
Klipsch is in my opinion the best sounding systems out there. I purchased this as a gift for my niece as I already own the R-20B sound bar. I set this up for her and then we watched a movie and she said " oh wow it sounds fantastic"all through the movie. She had already heard mine and loved it as much as I do. The bass from Klipsch subwoofers is like thunder and totally necessary for music. Its such a clean bass. Of course the great price I got it for from Crutchfield just sweetened the deal for an already fantastic sound bar. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Getting it from Crutchfield for a great price, Superior sound and Klipsch quality
Cons: Absolutely None !
I could not be happier with this sounds system and with the fantastic service from Crutchfield!
Pros: Great sound, easy-as-pie set up!
Excellent Product with very easy set up. Works well with my Samsung TV. Bluetooth connects with no issues!!!
I purchased this soundbar and I returned 2 days after. It looks good however my old home theater had a better sound quality. I was very disappointed.
Pros: It looks very nice
Cons: The sound quality.
Great soundbar We use it for movies and it works . Didn't want the expense or size of many speakers. Good option for people who just want better sound without alot and of products. Worked right away with Spectrum remote. Instructions horrible Used internet instructions for set up.
Great overall sound quality for the price. If you are looking for a huge leap forward from your flat screen speakers, you came to the right place. Dialogue is excellent, background sounds are clear and bass is full without sounding boomy or boxy. This will never be mistaken for a room full of separate speakers, but it will leave you with a smile on your face. Setup was easy, but figuring out that the audio input cycles between Bluetooth, analog and digital inputs was not obvious. Would I buy it again, you know it!
Pros: Excellent dialogue, clear background, accurate bass, easy setup
Cons: Switching between bluetooth, analog and digital inputs can be tricky until you figure it out
Good sound with depth for the price. Needs bass and treble controls and remote sub control. I'm sure the new model will have these controls.
Pros: Depth of sound
Cons: Lack of controls and adjustments
Set up was very easy. Like most speakers needed some break in time for best sound. After playing for a few days the TV sound was excellent. Full rich and clear. Wireless sub adds bass without boominess. Bluetooth music streaming works well. A bit tricky to switch from bluetootooh music streaming to tv sound. Paired with Comcast remote easily,
Pros: Excellent sound, full bass and no problem bluetooth streaming.
Great clarity of TV dialogue, The bass is clean and not over powering.
Pros: Great sound for the price and easy set up.
Cons: Sound bar height limits placement under TV. Must consider mounting on wall under mounted TV.
Fantastic sound, easy set up, highly impressed all the way around.
Pros: Ease of setup. Sounds fantastic Very happy with this purchase
Cons: Haven't found any.
Easy to set-up and it sounds great! I like being able to adjust the level of bass on the subwoofer. My system has gone to the next level!
easy to set up and install, great sound, love it
Great system and great value from Crutchfield. Easy to set up, has great sound for mid size rooms. Bluetooth sub is really handy.
Pros: Easy set up , great sound, good bass.
Cons: None so far, have other Klipsch products also from Crutchfield, would buy again
Looks great, sounds great! Big improvement over the TV speakers. Good value for the price. The sub woofer makes a big difference in the range of sound. It brings solid bass without rattling the windows. The only negative is not being able to program the Dish Hopper remote to control the volume. Having to use the Kipsch remote to turn the sound bar on and off and change the volume is not very user friendly.
Pros: Great sound and appearance. Solid bass from sub woofer
Cons: Not able to program Dish TV remote to control sound bar.
Excelent quality and sound is perfect! Subwoofer hidden in closet and no sign of lost signal! Highly recommended!
Would buy again. Very easy to set up. Sound clairity is amazing.
Pros: Very easy to set up. Sound clairity is amazing.
It's a good looking unit and works well for our application. It was fairly easy to hook up.
Quality sound and solid bass. I am very happy!!
Pros: Pounding bass and crystal clear dialogue.
Cons: Listening to music the highs can be a bit harsh
Bought an open box Klipsch R-10B with the intent of replacing an "old" Sony 5.1 surround sound system. Our great room is 18' x 28' so it couldn't replace the 5.1 system. However, I fell in love with the crisp clear sound of this system and the base is fantastic that I couldn't return it. I really love to stream bluetooth from other devices. I decided that it was worth every penny of my purchase to keep it. I'm so impressed with the quality of a Klipsch unit that I'm not sure if I'll ever buy any other brand of audio or not. As pleased as I am with the product, I'm so impressed with the customer service offered by Cructhfield that do not ever intend to shop anywhere else in my life as long as they continue to provide such service.
Pros: > Clear, crisp sound > Great bass with side firing wireless sub- woofer fills the room with base without having it directed right at you. > Attractive black finish with a sleek sound bar design. > Gives one the ability to easily listen to a movie with sound turned either up or down and still able to understand every word that's being said with the music or background noise. > Fast delivery.
Cons: > I experienced a slight amount of trouble getting the blue tooth to connect to my laptop, but after speaking with customer service, it was soon resolved.
Very nice sound and bass for the price point. Easy install and connect. I mounted under TV. Sub works well. Recommend if you are looking to save a little money.
Sounds great..looks awesome
Having already known what Klipsch Reference tower speakers are capable of, I had high expectations for the sound from the R-10B. After first testing it off of some trap music, and Planet Earth HD, the expectations were met, and surpassed. I'm living in an apt so the sub must be at 30% or lower, but even at those lower levels, this system roars. Watching sports isn't something I'm that big of a fan of but with the sound coming from something so clean, it becomes a much more immersive and enjoyable experience, even with all the cheesy commercials. The shipping was fast and reliable, and I love that they throw in an optical (very thin wire/as thin as they can make it) cable, 6ft long. I'd buy a second one in a heartbeat or the R-20B version if my TV wasn't a 42. For a 55"+ TV I could see the upgraded R-20B soundbar doing a better job, and for a larger room.
Usual prompt Crutchfield delivery, easy installation and significant improvement in voice clarity and overall sound equals total satisfaction with the R-10B. Added bonus for coming from "Scratch & Dent" of which none could be found. A winner!
Pros: All TV sound aspects.
Cons: Zero & none!
Good sound, great price. Four stars instead of five, you ask? One small nagging detail. The soundbar does not have an "off" button. It's power is switched under the unit and cannot be turned off by using the cable/TV remote. It does have an "auto off" feature such that it will switch to standby when it doesn't receive a signal for a few minutes. In addition, it wakes up when it receives a signal (although I haven't tested this with the Bluetooth). Other units for the same price have the full remote capability, but I'm not sure of the sound quality. I also have a Yamaha YAS-152, which sounds great and turns on and off with the remote. This unit is great in that it provides decent bass without a subwoofer - great for small apartments
Pros: Strong Bass, good quality,
Cons: Does not fully replicate the remote
poor sound quality.3D feature is a joke.when connect my phone to the bluetooth,sound is even worse too much base.a $20 bluetooth speaker has a crispier sound. I was gonna return it but wife through the packaging box while I was at work.what bothers me the most is when you program the TV remote to control the sound box,everytime you turn on the TV,you have to go to sound feature to disable the speaker TV,otherwise whenever you push the volume up,you're pushing both the TV and soundbox volume up and My God,the echo sounds is horrendous.Poor design.
Cons: constant mix up of TV /sound bar speaker .not practical.too expensive
The Klipsch R-10B is a very nice unit. Set up is very easy and the sound quality is excellent. If you balance the price against the quality you have a Winner here!
Pros: Easy setup, sound quality
Cons: None so far.
First time Crutchfield customer who couldn't be happier. Product arrived a few hours earlier than expected. Took less than 10 minutes to set up. Customer reviews had prepared me for all potential issues with using the speaker and sub-woofer. I can now hear my TV and love the Bluetooth connectivity. Next stop is the Klipsch The Three for my kitchen!
Pros: Rich sound for movies. Simple set-up. Small footprint. Has allowed me to rediscover 50 years of music.
Cons: Would like an iOS app for remote
Received Kilpsch soundbar system, it was a scratch & dent special, and could not see any defects on the product what so ever. It looked as though it was brand new. Installation was very easy. The fiber optic cable that came with it was plenty long enough for the sound bar to be mounted above the television. I would give it 5 stars but the instructions for programming the remote control was a bit vague. After trying a few different sequences based on the instructions finally figured it out. Initially had programmed the volume up button as mute, but was able to get it sorted after I realized the programming order. Took a little fine tuning to get the subwoofer sound where we wanted it, so it wasn't booming loud. It is mounted behind the curio cabinet, so I believe that amplifies the bass sound.
Pros: Amazing sound, very clear for master bedroom use, great price, and spot on suggestion from Crutchfield rep.
Cons: Programming the remote a bit confusing based on owners manual instructions.
I have been looking to purchase a bar and wireless sub for a few years now. Just could not come to grips with spending a lot for something that sounded good. Finally I saw this Klipsch Reference R-10B. Once it was out of the box it was plug and play. Super easy hookup. I don't know how I was listening to my TV speakers for so long. The sound clarity is excellent at all levels and the sub has plenty of power and provides more than enough thump.
Pros: Affordable, Very easy installation, Sturdy construction, Bar sounds great, Sub is strong and thumps.
Cons: Very small remote, Bar has a big profile
Amazing sound quality for our needs. Bass really adds to the surround experience. For the price, can not be beat.
Pros: easy hookup great sound for standard size living room ease of use
Cons: limited remote functionality
From my initial call with Rusty , all the way thru the delivery of my product the customer service from Both Rusty and Crutchfield was NOTHING short if first class. Rusty was VERY informative and they even sent me a Thankyou post card. If they could only get UPS to be as efficient as they are. Product did come as promised and on time but after the post card ironically. Keep up the good work. I'm a Crutchfield customer for life!
I am not a sound expert, but even I can tell the difference in the sound of my Klipsch R-10B system and the system my TV came with. The product arrived in a timely manner, even faster that I thought it would, in good condition. I decided to mount the sound bar to my TV so I had to order a sound bar mounting kit. That made the installation very easy. Very pleased.
I never have been a big movie watcher, but now with the Klipsch sound bar and sub I really am enjoying movies now. The great sound has made the differance.
Pros: price, sound, and easy hook up.
Cons: have not found one yet.
This Klipsch system sounds so rich, clear and full. The volume can be lower with this bar and we can hear it so much better. The Subwoofer is just amazing and actually scared my dog when we first installed it.
Pros: Looks great, easy to install, sounds terrific
Clear crisp bright sound. Infinitely better than the TV speakers. Easy to install despite the manual. Sub-woofer is set it and forget it. Remote is small and black, a.k.a - easy to lose. I ordered this because it met my price point and it's for a 180 sq/ft room. The manual is pictograms and not entirely intuitive. From unboxing to sound was no more than 10 minutes. The sub-woofer has a dial on the back for bass level. Played with it a few times and found a setting I liked and haven't touched it since. Bass volume increases and decreases with the sound bar. The good: superior sound as you would expect from Klipsch. Nicely styled. A single LED on the front indicates power, source, and status. Bluetooth pairing is easy. Movies, sports, video games all sound great. The not good but not bad: Be aware that at 4 1/8" high it may be taller than the bottom of your TV screen. Bluetooth connection with my macbook is sketchy, cuts out from time to time, but with my phone I've not experienced a problem (further testing required). When powered off the front LED turns red and stays on. The actually bad: The remote is tiny, dark, and the buttons are not back-lit. When the lights are low it can be hard to locate. The installation manual is almost useless. I would definitely recommend this product especially if you're still using your TVs speakers. If not for the remote and instructions I would have given it 5 stars.
Pros: Superior sound Easy installation Visually appealing
Cons: tiny remote poor installation instructions
Awesome soundbar at a great price. I already own a few other Klipsch products and this soundbar lives up to the Klipsch brand in quality and performance. The R-10B produces a much richer and fuller sound than my Samsung flat screen or my older stereo bookshelf speakers for average viewing and especially for movies. The subwoofer takes a little experimentation to adjust the output and place it in the room but once you find the "sweet spot" you should never need to re-adjust. The R-10B subwoofer delivers really great bass response for an average size room. The R-10B is very easy to setup, links to the subwoofer automatically, and even works well with the current AT&T S20 or S30 remotes; so I only need one device to control the whole system. The 3D sound is, as expected for simulated 3D, not quite as good as having a surround sound speaker system, but for rooms that are not conducive to multiple speakers it gives decent performance. The R-10B also makes it easier to hear the dialog without having to loose the richness of the sound. Crutchfield's price was better than direct and you cannot beat their customer service. Normally, I would not spend this kind of money for a soundbar but this 50% off deal made the R-10B too good to pass up.
Pros: Excellent sound, very easy setup, quality build, and great value.
Cons: 3D sound simulation could be better.
I am still debating if I should return the item. First, I will say that the sound quality is clean, clear and crisp. The bass isn't bad at all. However, I probably should have spent the extra money and got the R20 since my room is pretty large and I always enjoy a little extra bass. There are a few issues that I should point out though. The "3D" sound is a waste. It sounds terrible to me and I can't think of any situation that I would use it. The Bluetooth range appears to be very short. my phone is 19 feet a way from the unit and is constantly chopping in and out. I expect more range in this price class. I thought that it was a bad unit but it works find if I put my phone on top of the sound bar. Finally, it seems strange not to offer bass/treble controls. I totally miss that flexibility but maybe that's asking too much in this price range. The bass is the best feature of this unit but my family room/kitchen is about 38 feet long and I think I would benefit from the deeper bass hit that the R20 would provide. As I write this, I am thinking that I will have to exchange it. I would be totally disappointed in this unit if I paid more for it. However, I won't complain too much since it sounds pretty darn good for the price. The instructions are the worst that I have every seen for any consumer electronics. I did find the template to hang on unit on the wall but I found it too late. Why they couldn't just put it in the bag with the manual I surely do not know.
Pros: great bass. clear, crisp sound. Seems to be great value for the money
Cons: short range on the Bluetooth, no bass/treble controls, terrible manual. 3D sound is a joke
I recieved this as a Christmas gift, and I'll tell you what, this is Great!!! The setup took about 10 mins, and very easy. The use is very easy and quite understandable. The sound quality was phenomenal, and the sub woofer made he house shake for hours. For the price this was very worth it, not only do you get great sound quality from Bluetooth but you also get great sound straight from the Tv. I couldn't be more satisfied with this purchase. One thing that I didn't like was how small the remote was, it definitely needs to be bigger.
Pros: The sound quality was amazing, along with the ease of set up, all-around wonderful product.
Cons: The remote is so small, I feel like I'm going to loose the thing before the first of the year.
I purchased the R-10B for my parents after I purchased a Klipsch soundbar system a few years back for myself. Couldn't be more pleased. The soundbar is a little larger than some less expensive options, but you give up a lot of sound when you go small. This bar looks great mounted beneath any 50"+ TV. This system provides great sound, even at low volumes. It is also very easy to install.
Bought to stream music through in addition to typical soundbar duties and it performs very well. Midrange is well represented and subwoofer thumps respectably.
Huge upgrade over built in TV speakers. Easy installation and bluetooth connectivity. Bass response is impressive and not over powering - you have to manual set this but no big deal. If you want a sound bar that you can set up and leave, this is a good one because it sounds good right out of box - not a lot of trial and error on getting the right sound dimensions. The one down side is remote which a has a cheap feel and very small. Side note it does NOT have HDMI hook up but does have a optical output which is what I used. RECOMMEND.
Pros: Sound quality and set up.
Cons: Remote and no HDMI output.
The soundbar added some much needed dimension to our TV and I love the bluetooth connectivity for my i-phone. It was also very easy to set up. The sound difference when we compared the Klipsch to other soundbars at the store was significantly better. Very pleased with our purchase and would recommend it.
Very good sound. Well built. Remote is to small, can be easily lost.
Cons: Small remote
man oh man this soundbar/sub rocks!! Very easy set up , just enough features for me. have this in a smallish room and its (WAY) more than enough. Crutchfield was a joy to buy from, prompt!! KLIPSCH is a joy to listen to as always.
Pros: outstanding clarity and base output, outstanding is the only word to describe it for the money.
Cons: small remote
Great sound. Was easy to hook up and the bluetooth works perfectly.
Pros: Great sound. Was easy to hook up and the bluetooth works perfectly.
An excellent Sound bar with fantastic sound quality. Very simple installation.
Pros: Easy to install, great quality
Sound quality is awesome. Every detail comes through loud and clear. Would be 5 stars but no remote volume on the sub and having to manually disconnect the Bluetooth streaming feature to go back to the TV brings it down just a notch.
Excellent product. More importantly doing business with Crutchfield was easy, honest and the best price. They understand the true meaning of customer service. Great company
Great sound. Limited in terms of the types of inputs available.
I expected a good sounding bar, but I was surprised on how good this bar actually did sound. I had biught a lesser bar from the same mfg through another company, but it was on back order. This bar was offered on sale so I cancelled the other order and paid about the same for a better model from crutchfield. Super duper sound at super duper price !!!!!
Pros: Just what I wanted, clean sound to supplement my tv sound.
Cons: None that I could find.
Very happy with the soundbar and sub. Especially happy with the wonderful Crutchfield support! Being able to control volume from the Direct TV remote was a game changer!
Having recently purchased a flat panel TV, my ears were increasingly becoming irritated from the sound--actually noise emanating from the tuna cans (3oz) size installed and referred to as speakers. The flatter the panels get the worse the noise becomes and though the picture quality is simply are beyond excellent, not much attention is being paid to the sound. Enter the R-10B to the recue--like a jet breaking the sound barrier-these 2 pieces of equipment combine to relieve what had been an awful listening experience no matter where your positioned in the room. My use of the bar is mainly for Music and Movies--no need to amplify the News which is nothing but noise anyway--the room has now been transformed into a theatre for Movies and a concert hall for Music. This transformation took all of 10 minutes to set up--in fact--it took longer to unbox than it did to place the bar and sub and plug them in. Simplicity at its finest--nothing complicated--Klipsch has managed to make an excellent no frills Sound Bar that simply gets the job done that is powerful enough to put in any size room. Having shopped around and done some researching of technical data (of which there is no shortage) and looked over the extreme range of pricing from various manufacturers, there is no doubt that I found the sweet spot in the R-10B and oh how sweet the sound! Definitely the most "Boom" for your buck!
Pros: easy installation, unbeatable sound quality, reasonably priced
Cons: lack of inputs-no hdmi, poor instruction manuel
Very nice product , easy to set up and use your own remote.
Pros: Good sound , ease of set-up.
Sound is great, excellent clarity. Surround sound mode does a pretty good job for what it is. Connection was a breeze!
Pros: Easy to setup, great sound.
Cons: None so far
The R10B is a good unit. Set up was easy. You need to fiddle with the bass volume on the back of the sub-woofer to get the sound just right. The mid range and tweeters do a good job and are better than our TV speakers for voice clarity. No regrets and a good price from Crutchfield.
Mind blowing. The first time I heard the bass kick in I thought someone was blasting their car stereo in front of my house. The speakers are crisp. They resonate sound that I have been missing with just the TV speakers. Even more impressive is the bass. It sits 25' away from the soundbar and rocks the house. I feel like I'm in a movie theater or a rock concert. Even my brother (who likes it loud) said, "It's too loud." I get excited every time the bass kicks in. The best part is that it's made in the U.S.A. Even my friends with Boise speakers are impressed. I happy with my Klipsch system.
Pros: Very easy to hook up, the sound quality is great and the bass kicks you know what. The speaker packaging is great and the directions are easy to read. No sound quality is lost between the TV and the Bluetooth option.
Cons: The speaker turn on regardless if I hit the "On" button.
The Klipsch R-10B sound bar is a great improvement over the sound produced by my Samsung 8000 TV. No fuss or adjusting, just turn on the TV and use the Directv remote volume control. I use my surround sound amp and speakers for DVD's and movie night.
Pros: Very easy to use and great sound.
Cons: Remote set up directions are a bit cryptic but easy once you catch on.
We like our new sound bar by Klipsch. We have a very nice Sony big screen TV but it is hard to hear dialogue in our two story living room. However, there are still times that we have to either rewind or turn up the volume to clear up the dialogue with the new Klipsch sound bar. The dialogue has improved 85-90% over the TV sound system. I am sure that if I would have paid more for a "higher grade" sound bar, that the dialogue would be better. I would have paid more if I had been able to find definitive advice on the internet or at Crutchfield but no one seemed to agree on clarity of dialogue on any sound bar. (I called Crutchfield on three separate occasions and each of the consultants had different opinions.)
Pros: Easy to install Better than TV speakers
Cons: Dialogue is better but still not perfect!
Excellent sound quality ! Very easy set up , just enough features . I especially like the fact it pairs with virtually any remote and also will shut off after 10 minutes with no signal ,so when you shut off tv it turns off automatically .
Pros: Excellent sound even at high volume Easy set up Intuitive functions
Cons: Only thing I wish it had was hdmi switching , because t then it would probably cost $200 more..
looks and sounds great the bluetooth and remote could be better
Pros: good highs midrange and lows
Cons: sometimes hard to get bluetooth to connect. remote is chinsey
Setup was extremely easy and straightforward. After owning several soundbars through the years there is nothing that comes close for the money spent on this.
Pros: Great clear sound and very loud for our 18x24 bedroom.
Cons: Nothing so far.
Needed to get 2 different sound bars delivered. First one, using the optical cable, sound would cut out for a second then come back on. 2nd one did the same, so now we use RCA cables and that fixed the problem. This could be my equipments problem, but we tried it through LG TV & cable box with same results. Called both Klipsch & Crutchfield on this & they both had no answers. Tiny controller seems cheap and does not work all the time. Last night the volume up button wouldn't work. I can see us losing this small piece of plastic soon. Like the ease of Bluetooth connectivity. We have a big open room and it doesn't fill it up like I was hoping it would. Overall we give this bar a 2 or 3 star. I had way higher hopes paying for the Klipsch name.
Pros: Bluetooth connectivity
Cons: Optical connection, tiny cheap controller
So far this is turning out to be a great by. Highly recommend to anyone looking to spice up the standard hard to hear stock speakers. I was a little worried about not mounting it but it is working great sitting at the base of my television.
Pros: 5 Stars across the board.
Cons: Other than having to re sync every time you go into the Bluetooth mode this set up will is amazing.
Product works excellent with our Samsung television. I was looking for a product with great sound but easy for my wife to operate. This has it all great sound, easy integration and auto power so it turns off once Television is off after a short duration of time. Fills the room nicely with rich deep sound that hits both the highs and lows.
Pros: Great Sound, Awesome features, Bluetooth connectivity, Nice looking that is quality built.
Cons: No cons that I give at this current time
Excellent sound, Easy installation. Quick delivery from Crutchfield
Very good sound especially for music
Pros: Great price. Good sound
Cons: Poor instructions. I prefer words instead of how to graphics. Remote control quality and issues.
For the price it's a good set-up! Easy to install! The only thing that you have to be careful of is when you are switching devices from the TV to your iPhone or iPad the volume will differ quite a bit so remember to turn the volume down or up when your finished with each devise.
Pros: Easy install! Good unit for the price!
Cons: See review comment!

Soundbar + Wireless Sub System: The Klipsch R-10B 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 R-10B consists of a self-powered soundbar speaker and a wireless powered subwoofer, combining for 250-watts (Peak) of dynamic power. The system features an elegant black satin finish to blend in with your flat-panel TV and decor.
3D Surround Mode: The Klipsch R-10B soundbar + subwoofer system 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 R-10B 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.
Note: The digital optical output terminals of most newer flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Klipsch R-10B features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming of stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer, and more to the Klipsch soundbar + subwoofer system. The R-10B even supports aptX audio coding technology which allows for lossless, CD-quality wireless streaming of music from an aptX-compatible Bluetooth device (like Android OS 4.0+). You'll continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to control music playback functions and to view song/artist information. A simple single button press will pair your device with the R-10B system. Once paired, the R-10B speaker system will automatically re-connect to your device when within range (up to 33').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Klipsch R-10B.
Remote Control: You can program the Klipsch R-10B'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.
Note: Many newer TVs are coming with RF remotes and don't offer IR functionality. In this case, you would not be able to program the soundbar and TV remote to work together.
Mounting Options: The soundbar speaker can be positioned on a shelf or stand using the supplied rubber feet (the rubber feet add 0.25" to the height of the soundbar speaker). It can also be wall-mounted using its dual keyhole slots and included easy-to-use template (the keyhole spacing is 29.4375"). The slender soundbar speaker aesthetically matches either a wall-mounted or table-top mounted TV. Because the powered sub is wireless it can be positioned almost anywhere up to 50' from the soundbar speaker. It is recommended that the sub be positioned on the same wall as the soundbar. The wireless powered sub will require an AC wall outlet.
Auto Turn-On: This soundbar speaker system will turn on automatically when it receives an audio signal on its optical or analog inputs.

My wife said our new living room arrangement doesn't have enough space for my Onkyo receiver and my Polk Monitor Signature Series speakers. It pains me to say, a soundbar is my only option. The Klipsch is undoubtedly the best choice for my needs. [ Kenneth Nov 13, 2018 ]

I chose this over other soundbars because of the reviews I have studied over the past 15 months. It appears this item is better than most others at this price range. [ Rhinnie Apr 23, 2018 ]
After some research and reading lots of reviews, this unit seemed to be the best compromise of performance for the price. Lower priced units seemed to pretty much lack bottom end and good clarity, and although there are other units that no doubt perform better than this one that performance comes at a significant price increase.

I listened to it in Best Buy the entire year I worked there 2 years ago. Was highly impressed with the ability of it to fill the store with music that packed a punch. Waited patiently for the price to drop and now I'm the proud owner of a stellar soundbar which will pair nicely with the 60 inch Sony tv I'm buying tomorrow. [ Micheal Jan 28, 2017 ]
Bought this for my brother-in-law. Not tech savvy but got a new 55" TV for Christmas. Soundbar/Wireless sub an excellent solution for those that can't afford a true home theater system. Also small footprint. As for the R-10B, Klipsch has great sound for the money with a big bass punch! At $300, (50% discount), can't beat the price. Bluetooth for wireless streaming is a great bonus. Finally, people don't realize that the picture is only half of the viewing experience. Gotta have great sound! [ Thad Jan 18, 2017 ]
It was on sale for a great price ! and I was in the market for a sound bar that meet these specs.It should be a good deal all things considered.A lot of positive reviews and a reputation for good customer service also helped to influence me. [ paul Jan 14, 2017 ]

Extensive reviews from several online sources for units around the $500 price point resulted in a near dead-match between the JBL Cinema SB400 and the Klipsch Reference R10 B. Honestly, it was a toss up with decision going to Klipsch because there were so many complaints about the position of the connectors on the JBL unit. [ Jason May 15, 2016 ]

Good name brand good price [ David Dec 13, 2015 ]
I have other Klipsch products and I trust the brand. [ Gregory Dec 03, 2015 ]
Truthfully, the only cure I know of is the mute button. The sponsors for the programs folks watch pay for advertising, want to get their moneys worth and the broadcasting stations agreed to over-modulate the audio associated with the commercials to make sure "you" hear them. I hate it but it's a fact of life. Many stations are worse than others. Since the 10B is an amplified system it may just be overly sensitive to the commercials over-modulation. Bummer!!! [ Mark Sep 20, 2018 ]
Commercials are amplified by networks and wether though tv speakers or sound at you'll have the same issue. There is no fix--there were tv's that had a feature that reduced the sound level of commercials automatically but I've not seen that feature for several years now. [ E Sep 18, 2018 ]
No ive noticed this as well Most commercials are louder anyway and with the klipsch it is just magnified [ John Sep 18, 2018 ]
Same here with my 60" Panasonic. I figured I had a couple of options -- Either elevate the TV slightly, which would have required something under the foot (it has the old foot, not legs), or merely slide the soundbar to the right slightly to uncover the sensor on the left side of the tv. It looked a little unbalanced at first, but I don't even notice it anymore. Obviously, it doesn't impact the sound or performance in any way. This soundbar is unbelievable. I also connect it to my Echo Dot and my phone via Bluetooth and stream music through it. If you can solve your sensor issue, you'll be really pleased with it. [ Robert Aug 22, 2018 ]
I believe it might be difficult with this type of system. The audio signal is sent wirelessly from the "bar" speaker to the subwoofer. You would need a subwoofer that could correctly receive the wireless signal. Possibly Klipsch could assist you obtaining such a subwoofer. Additionally, I'm sure some audio electronics wizard could open up the existing subwoofer and connect into its preamp and send the signal to a non-Klipsch amplified subwoofer but. if possible. I doubt the procedure would be trival. [ Mark Aug 16, 2018 ]
The system is not designed to add another subwoofer. If you want more bass you might consider the R20B. [ Eric Aug 16, 2018 ]
No, one for one system. Sound bar comes paired with one subwoofer. [ KENNETH Aug 16, 2018 ]
Any remote control can be programmed to operate sound bar... Volume up/down and mute. Follow Klipsch instructions in the manual. [ KENNETH Aug 16, 2018 ]
I have not used a universal remote but I would think you should be able to program with the soundbar to do that. [ Don Aug 11, 2018 ]
I'm not sure about your universal remote. But here is my experience with this sound bar. When I first got the sound bar I was using two remotes to turn the TV volume down and sound bar up. When sound came from both it was slightly out of sync. I figured out that I could change the TV settings to choose which speakers I want to use. I was able to go into the TV settings With the TV remote, but I only had to do this once, changing from TV speakers to audio system. I can now use any remote to control volume; TV, universal, or sound bar. The power comes on automatically when I turn on the TV with my universal remote. The sound is great and I highly recommend this sound bar. I can even use the sound system to listen to music with Bluetooth on my phone. Maybe check your TV settings to see what speaker or sound options you have first. Hope this helps. [ Karin Aug 10, 2018 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Krissy Apr 23, 2018 ] Staff
I purchased some soundbar mounting brackets. These brackets work GREAT. Search the Web for soundbar mounting brackets. They are cheap. It's the way to go [ Mark Mar 08, 2018 ]
You are correct it can be mounted to the wall with it's own mounting holes. I would use the supplied template and see if it would match the mounting position on the tv bracket. [ VERN Mar 08, 2018 ]
The sound bar has mounting brackets 29.5 inches center to center for hanging on the wall. If you wanted to attach it to a TV mounting bracket and it is not 29.5 inches apart, you would need to modify it with an additional bracket to connect the sound bar to it. [ Jeffrey Drew Mar 08, 2018 ]
Additional FYI--this unit will automactically energize when your tv is turned on--bought to potentially be a defect it is actually the way the circuitry is designed according to Klipsh. I think that this auto on function happens no matter how the sound bar is connected to the tv--mine is connected through a fiber optics cable. [ E Feb 13, 2018 ]
Sorry but I don't know what "toslink" is. I connect my TV using an optical cable. This allows any device connected to the tv to play through the sound bar. [ Robert Feb 10, 2018 ]
You should be able to accomplish all that you asked about. The unit actually comes with a fiber optics cable. Any sound running through the tv will be able to come through the sound bar. [ E Feb 10, 2018 ]
HI: Prak J. I never have any problem with my sound bar, why you don't try different wires or if you have it connect to your TV, CD player etc. maybe some audio signal coming from those sources and make the fan to be in motion most of the time. I hope this information can help you, I wish good lock, and merry Christmas. [ Ruben H. Dec 11, 2017 ]
No I got it too [ DAVID Dec 11, 2017 ]
I haven't had a problem like that. But, I have heard noises. Through listening to different tv stations I determined that the sound bar is so good that it picks up every sound bei g produced. Especially when I watch the news. I seem to be picking up their background noise. Give it some time. It's a big step up in quality of sound going from tv speakers to high quality sound from this Klipsch sound bar. [ Jason Dec 11, 2017 ]
I haven't ever experienced this. I don't even think the sound bar has a fan. Does it do when all types of devices are connected? I found mine sounded better after several hour shifts of use. Sort of sounded harsh at first and sort of broke in. That may be your problem and if it doesn't get better in a week then maybe it's actually defective. [ Andrew Dec 11, 2017 ]
Sorry but I have not experienced this with my unit. I would be speculating if I was to suggest anything. [ Bradley Dec 11, 2017 ]
Mine is quiet and crystal clear. Sounds like you're going to have to return the item. [ Clay Dec 11, 2017 ]

No, It is a Bluetooth so you connect your phone and such and it will play audio through it [ Terry Oct 26, 2017 ]
Tv, DVD player, and works as a Bluetooth speaker [ Kelly Oct 26, 2017 ]
Yes. It works with my Samsung TV. There is some interruption via the optical cable-causing sound to briefly go silent. Bluetooth used to work great for iPhone and iPad streaming music, however, disappointingly the updates OS from Apple interferes with Klipsch's Bluetooth capability rendering that feature useless. Although the Klipsch has great sound, the lack of a software upgrade or solution or any recent online thread is very disappointing in trying to use the speaker for pure music. Haven't called it in yet. May replace with a different brand. [ Joshua Oct 26, 2017 ]
No, but it does work well with Bluetooth, Satellite,TV, Roku, and Dvd player [ Kelly Aug 22, 2017 ]
I believe that it has to do with the Tv you have it hooked up to. Most Tv's optical output is set up to turn on the device that it's hooked up to and some Tv's you can change that. [ G Aug 22, 2017 ]
No [ KENNETH Aug 16, 2018 ]
nope, I would try re pairing remote if you did this to your tv remote... [ Terry May 09, 2017 ]
I have not. Are you using the normal remote or a programable one? [ G May 08, 2017 ]
I only have it placed about 15 feet away without a problem. I haven't placed it any farther and have nowhere to do so. Hope this was helpful. [ michael Jan 16, 2017 ]
I think the instruction state it has a 20' range. I personally have mine positioned closer to the sound bar as the room is fairly large so distance between the components is not an issue for me. [ E Jan 14, 2017 ]
Mine is ten feet. No problem. [ Steven Jan 14, 2017 ]
I have a man cave 412 square feet L-Shaped. No problem from other end, out of sight. Really sounds top shelf for the money paid. You won't be disappointed. [ Clay Jan 14, 2017 ]
I have mine positioned 14' away from the soundbar and have never had any connection issues, hope this helps! [ Bryan Jan 14, 2017 ]
Once you install the soundbar, you will disable or mute your TV speakers and adjust the soundbar volume instead. You can adjust the soundbar volume with the included remote or by reprogramming your TV remote or another universal remote to control the soundbar. The way you connect them soundbar to the TV has nothing to do with it. [ Stephen Jan 09, 2017 ]
I am using the optical cable from the TV and using the speaker remote. But I believe you can use the TV remote after it is recognized by the system. I just have not done it yet. [ Ralston Jan 08, 2017 ]
You need to use the included Klipsch remote. If the remote for your TV is programmable, you may be able to use it. I'm not sure. [ James Jan 07, 2017 ]
The remote I have for Direct TV is not compatible. Very dissapointing. [ William Jan 06, 2017 ]
Your TV remote will adjust the volume after you follow the set up instructions. Mine works with a Samsung TV and a Direct TV remote. [ David Jan 06, 2017 ]
Great speaker choice. We just connected speaker to our universal remote and it works fine. I don't believe your original TV remote would work unless it can be programmed to connect to other devices [ Kelly Jan 06, 2017 ]
Hi David. I haven't tried it honestly. I have it hooked up with a optical digital cable also. I have a Sony tv. When I use the tv remote to turn on it will turn on the Klipsch sound system. But when I turn off the tv it will not turn off the soundbar. I use the small remote supplied with the soundbar. I just came from Dish to Cable. The installer said the cable remote should do everything. I haven't got that far into it. I just moved for the second time. Sorry this doesn't help much. It's a good soundbar. I came from a Sony. I wish it had more controls for sound parameters. Only a 3d button. I don't really care for that. It helps some on movies. I haven't done any Bluetooth stuff. The sub works fine wireless. [ Robert Jan 06, 2017 ]
Samsung TV Xfinity X1 Box Klipsch Regerence R-10B Optical Cable We configured the Xfinity X1 Remote to control the Klipsch Audio (Up, Down, Mute). No need to use thin Klipsch remote. [ Steve Jan 06, 2017 ]
Hi Keith - I am assuming that the 2 were paired before the move. Without the ability to troubleshoot this with you, my very first recommendation is to "forget" the device from your phone and re-connect them. [ LOUIS Jan 04, 2017 ]
Are you hitting the Bluetooth button on your remote while your phone Bluetooth is searching for Bluetooth devices? [ G Jan 04, 2017 ]
No, subwoofer only works with Klipsch R-10B only. [ KENNETH Aug 16, 2018 ]
Sorry, have no idea. [ Harold Jan 12, 2016 ]
Try this: Step 4 press the -(minus) button once, then press your remotes volume down button slowly 4 times. The flashing green light should turn solid. Then do the same with the +(plus) button and the volume up on your remote. Of course follow steps 1,2 and 3 each time. Keep your remote within 12 inches of the sound bar. Good luck. [ David Jan 06, 2017 ]
I'm having the same problem. [ Glenna Mar 19, 2015 ]
I was never able to use my remote had to use the one that came with it. I ended up sending back the sound bar because it would shut down by itself then turn back on with full volume. It did this a few times. Sorry and good luck [ Chelsea Mar 04, 2015 ]
I'm a directtv customer and have a Samsung monitor/tv. I use the Samsung controller to manage the r10b sound level, quite well. [ Harold Mar 04, 2015 ]
Sorry, I can't help with this. Martin [ Martin Mar 03, 2015 ]
Sorry I have Century Link cable but we can not adjust the volume through our cable remote only through the Klipsch remote. [ JACK W Mar 03, 2015 ]
Sorry I haven't tried that yet. Good luck! [ Robert Mar 03, 2015 ]

No it connects directly to the TV. [ William Jan 06, 2017 ]
R10B is the amplifier and speakers. Got rid of my old amp and speakers. I use fiber input, when my kids come they input music from their "i-thing" via bluetooth. [ Harold Nov 29, 2014 ]
No that's why I bought this set-up. ?? [ Jennifer Nov 29, 2014 ]
