About the Klipsch Reference R-20B

Serious sound from a seamless system

Not everybody looks at floor-standing or bookshelf speakers as beautiful works of art the way I do. If you prefer a more minimalist approach to home theater gear, the Klipsch Reference R-20B will satisfy your aesthetic while delivering a dynamic home theater listening experience.

This sound bar and subwoofer will immerse you in rich, robust sound, so movies are more thrilling and dramatic. Voices will sound clearer, small details will take shape, and deep bass will rattle your couch if you crank up the wireless subwoofer. It's a clean-looking system that won't draw attention away from your décor — although, the copper-colored Klipsch name on the sound bar might attract "oohs" and "ahs" from your audio-geek friends.

Klipsch Reference R-10B sound bar and wireless subwoofer

The Klipsch Reference R-20B sound bar and wireless subwoofer adds home theater sound to your TV without taking over your room. It can be wall-mounted (shown) or placed on a TV stand.

Clear sound at every seat

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. Four 3" midrange excel at delivering clear dialogue throughout your room. You won't have to keep replaying the same scene just to understand the actors.

Bring back the bass

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-20B'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.

Built-in Bluetooth for music

The R-20B 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.

One cable connection and done

Setting up the R-20B 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.

    Cinematic Sound Out of a Soundbar

    Rob from Alpharetta, GA on 6/3/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Great unit! If you want house rattling base ALL THE TIME, this may not be for you. If though, you want a real cinematic experience giving the right amount of highs, mids, and thunderous lows when it is appropriate, this system delivers. I can hear people speak in quiet scenes and the windows rattle in the action. It's just right. I would say though that the remote is pure junk but it was easy to program to my DirecTv magic remote so it really doesn't matter. The remote is so terrible that I think that was Klipsch's intention.

    Pros: Great balance of the ranges of sound.

    Cons: Embarrassingly terrible remote - program another remote to operate the system.

    Great sound. Super easy setup. Remote only seems to work when you are 5' or less away from the soundbar. Bluetooth connection was simple but the range is horrible. More than about 10' away and it will lose connection. While it is connected however, it is perfect.

    Pros: Sounds great, easy setup, looks great

    Cons: poor remote range poor bluetooth range

    Nice sound, when the remote works

    Gilbert from Weehawken, NJ on 4/1/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    High expectations given the Klipsch Dynasty name. Overall really well built and solid. Audio is crisp and the sub delivers thud pounding bass, so much so I never have over 50% volume level on the Bluetooth unit. That there is no cable required for the Sub was something I did not consider when I purchased in concert with my Cambridge AV unit, it can't see the Sub during speaker setup since it is not connected to the Amp, so I can't take advantage of that room setup capability. The remote is a joke, seriously who allowed this out the door? It is not just the form-factor, the buttons are mushy and don't always work. On my LG 55" OLED, often times, it will turn itself on during the night for no reason or not raise or lower volume - considering donating to the Salvation Army and taking the tax right-off to get something else, just disappointed..

    Pros: Built quality Audio range and bass

    Cons: Remote Lack of hardwire option for 5.1 speaker setup

    Nice sound bar ruined by remote.

    Jeff from Swanton, OH on 3/26/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Beautiful sound bar ruined by extremely poor remote. Had Klipsch computer speakers previously and thought they were great. I hooked up my new Klipsch sound bar and sub woofer which was extremely easy. Once installed I discovered thar the remote did not function. I called Crutchfield and they quickly determined it was defective. They promptly sent me a replacement which did work however very poorly. I have a very small living room and sometimes I have to stand up and get 3 feet away directly in front to get it to work. Not only that but it apparently interferes somehow with my smart dvd player remote. Bummed out. This remote just looks and feels cheap compared to the very impressive sound bar and sub. You have to push repeatedly on the buttons to get them to work.

    Pros: Looks great. Sounds pretty decent.

    Cons: Cheesy poor functioning remote.

    I had a Denon and could not hear the low talking to good. So i talked to a gentlemen at Crutchfield and he recommended the Klipsch R6 for listening to the low talking. i had an email that morning from Crutchfield that had the klipsch R20B on sale so i asked him about that one and he said that it was a better sound bar. So I went on line to read the reviews and they where very helpful and helped me make up my mind. I listened to the same move that i was having issues with and could hear everything very will. Highly recommend the Klipsch sound bars.

    This speaker is LOUD

    tyler from Harrisonburg, VA on 3/15/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The sound from this product is really great. I use primarily for music, but have hooked it up to watch TV and movies and I'm just as impressed with the sound. At first I was disappointed with the 10 inch bass that comes with it, but the more I use it the more it comes to life. Another thing I REALLY enjoy about this is how loud it is capable of getting and still sounding good. I don't think that I've ever gotten it above 70-75% volume because everytime i do my neighbors(apartment complex) start knocking on my door. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the bluetooth connection. The music will go in and out with my phone within 10-15 feet, and for a product this expensive there's no reason the bluetooth technology should not be superb. If you are buying just for bluetooth music, you might be better off buying a different product.

    Pros: sound quality loudness rumbling bass wireless connection to bass

    Cons: bluetooth

    Sound at and sub-woofer are great. Sound quality is better (for my hearing) than the old Bose 5.1 system it displaced. Like many others, it would have been 5 stars with a bigger / better remote with some sort of visual volume indicators either on screen or on the remote.

    Pros: Do not love remote

    Great sound, Android phone bug

    Bryan from Beaverton, OR on 3/7/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Fantastic sound. But i have one crazy issue with the the R-20B. If my Galaxy S8 or Girlfriends Google Pixel XL is in the same room with the soundbar, the soundbar activates and instantly adjusts volume to 100%. Doesn't happen at all with iPhone devices. On our Android phones, I've turned off all radios, including NFC, as well as removing the sound card. The phones were never paired with the via bluetooth and resetting the soundbar to factory doesn't solve the issue either. I can't believe I have to return this package because of the strangest hardware glitch I've ever seen. Klipsch hasn't responded and we can't be in the same room with the R-20B with our cell phones. Its ridiculous and has to be seen to be believed.

    Pros: Sound is very clear. Great highs, mids and lows Subwoofer really sounds tight.

    Cons: S8 and Pixel XL cause soundbar to activate and increase volume to 100% Can't be in the same room with our phones

    Crutchfield response on 3/7/2018

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The speakers sound terrific whether you are watching a movie on low volume or blasting music. No way would it be worth the original sticker price, but for under the price point it's at now, it is certainly worth the price. My only complaint as some others have mentioned is that the remote is pretty cheap. It works properly but does not have much functionality even compared to some other brand's offerings at price points under $200. The remote is small and very light-weight, which some might tout as a pro, but I think it feels cheap. Also, it is slightly curved to better fit in your hand I suppose, but I also find that I don't like this design.

    Overall a great system.. Clarity and wall shaking bass, which I love!! The only down fall is the remote, you need to aim it right at the soundbar for it to work properly... Easy fix however, I programmed my TV remote to control volume levels. Bluetooth works great, sometimes cuts out do to phone reception. Other than that, very pleased.

    First off I would like to say this is a good system over all . But there are a few things I would like addressed like the remote only working when it pointed right at the bar . Second I think the 3D audio sounds like you in a public restroom and third i purchased the R-20B because I want the extra bass from the 10 but after having it for few months now and listening to all kinds of music through it it lacks bass at high volumes! All in all I think it's good just was expecting more!

    Pros: Great quality, great look, Easy install

    Cons: Poor remote, 3D audio hollow sounding, not as much bass as expected

    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.

    Klipsch vs. Sonos

    Andrew from Fulshear, TX on 1/17/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Santa Claus originally delivered a Sonos Playbase for Christmas. Unfortunately, after watching a couple action movies it was clear the system requires a subwoofer to complete the experience so it was sent back to the North Pole. At a $1300 price point for the Playbase and separately sold subwoofer, we decided to look at other options on Crutchfield.com. After a few minutes chatting with the amazing customer rep and researching the recommendations, we ordered the Klipsch R-20B. In our own side-by-side comparison (swapping the audio out during the movie), the Playbase does extremely well with dialog and low-end sounds but the Klipsch (with subwoofer at 50% volume) clearly provided a better overall in-home movie experience. The only downside with the Klipsch is the same concerns noted on previous reviews...the remote control is weak so we are trying phone apps to control the system.

    Great sound bar

    Kevin from Hanford, CA on 1/16/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I can only rate this set up a 3 because the sound bars sound quality was amazing but the subwoofer I got was either defective or something wasn't communicating correctly the sub turned on and there was sound but almost no bass at all even with the dial turned all the way up. I give Crutchfield 5 stars because they made the return extremely easy and effortless. I would also state the sound bar has no indication what volume you're at or what mode it is in other then the color changing led which was kinda annoying. I didn't repurchase this setup because I didn't want to have to wait for shipping again so I did decide on a different unit. If you're only looking for great sound quality and don't need the extra fancy smancy features this is definitely a good buy.

    Pros: Sound quality was crisp Voices were very clear

    Cons: Defective subwoofer Ships in its own box not a separate box No volume indicator No mode indicator other than led light

    Bought the Klipsch Reference 20B sound bar/wireless sub on sale. Performance is better than expected for what I paid except for the remote which is close to useless. Good, clean sound, especially dialogue, in a small to medium sized room. Sub is fairly large and provides good low frequency sound. Handles higher volumes well especially with movies.

    Pros: Sound bar is clear, especially dialogue Sub provides good low frequency sound Very good value for the money

    Cons: Remote is sub par to say the least

    A little disappointed with this R-20B...Thought it would be better. Lack of Mid range sound and the Bass from Subwoofer somehow not firm. But you can't ask for more with this price! Still a lot upgraded compared to TV speakers...

    Pros: Look cool and wireless Subwoofer is very convenient.

    This thing sounds great for a sound bar. Nothing negative and it met my expectations. The voices are clear and precise and the bass is nice. This system is in my bedroom and it works great. It's not a system I would recommend for a large room but for a bed room it sounds very good. I've read some reviews that stated it turns on by itself. I haven't had that problem because I have it connected to my tv via optical cable. The remote is small but it works although you have to be directly in front of the sound bar. The Bluetooth connection works well also.

    Pros: Very good sound, clear voice, nice bass

    Cons: None

    Highs are too piercing and there are no mids

    Crutchfield customer from Longmont, CO on 12/10/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Highs seem too high and artificial. Mid-range is nowhere to be found. Buttons are very temperamental and it won't pair with my remote. Overall it serves me right because the speakers are so small. Sometimes I think it sounds pretty decent when just using it as a Bluetooth speaker, but anything through the Directv and Blu-ray sounds pretty terrible even with an optical connection. I guess I might keep it since it will be almost impossible to return due to the weight and bizarre box it came it. Should have bought for a local store for easier return. But I will probably replace it within the year. I actually just bought a 60 year stereo that completely blows it away. Maybe that means I prefer a warm, full sound instead of over amplified highs. And maybe that means if I am a person who buys 60 year old stereos then soundboard probably aren't for me but I thought Klipsch would be good and I liked the sale price. I was wrong and learned a few things.

    Pros: Sounds decent when pairing with my phone. Easy to set up.

    Cons: No mids. Highs are tinny. Lacks a warm, rich, full sound. Any cheap out of the box from 20 years ago sounds better. This is a miss.

    Klipsch R20B Reference

    Eric from Beaverton, OR on 12/3/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The Klipsch R-20B was returned after using it for about two (2) days. (Thankyou to Crutchfield for their excellent return policy) I would have like to keep the R-20B because the sound is really good. The voices are clear and the sub adds a nice base. The first Con is the Bluetooth implementation is not ready for real-time use. The sound kept dropping out while the Bluetooth was trying to "reconnect" with the subwoofer, even though the sub was five (5) feet away. The second Con is when the optical cable is used, the volume can only be controlled by the Klipsch remote control, not the TV or STB (Set Top Box). There is no HDMI CEC connection ("Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is a feature of HDMI designed to allow users to command and control devices connected through HDMI by using only one remote control. For example, by using the remote control of a television set to control a set-top box and or"....speakers.) The JBL 3.1 surround bar that I tried next, supports HDMI-CEC. I really wanted the R-20B to work, because it is far superior to the Sony Bravia speakers. Unfortunately, the Bluetooth implementation isn't ready for real-time usage.

    Pros: Sound Form factor (size) Setup is easy

    Cons: Bluetooth implementation No support for HDMI (only Optical and RCA) No support for HDMI-CEC Small, non-standard remote control

    First unit sent was DOA. Crutchfield was quick to send another. Minor inconvenience but still had to deal with it. So far very pleased with this sound system, overall. If your looking for superb sound, this is not it. And in all actuality most sound bars of this design will probably be close to the same. It is a great improvement over the factory tv speakers. Good bass & average mids & highs. It's a big improvement but a little overpriced, but I would do it again.

    Pros: Good bass & good sound in action movies.

    Cons: Can't adjust mids & highs from bass. Pricey Gave it 4 stars because of price & cant adjust highs & mids separate from bass

    Sound is good enough to warrant the price that I paid for this combo. I was able to get it for about half the retail price from Crutchfield. Then came to find out that the price was even less, up to $100 less at other sites. Remote does not work well, documentation for the various functions is non-existent. Still have not been able to program Comcast remote with sound features on the bar. Remote for the bar needs to be directly in front of the unit to work. Bluetooth use is good but to connect back to the main source almost always requires you to shut off the unit to clear the previous source. Shame that these are the only thing that stands out about this unit.

    A few pluses, a lot of minuses

    Travis from Eastern Shore MD on 9/18/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I was hesitant to purchase the Reference R 20B but with all the positive reviews and the help of Kevin I made the plunge. It replaces a Yamaha 101 soundbar and a Yamaha 8" powered sub(165 watts total power. 12 year old sub still putting out great bass). The 6 speaker soundbar makes my TV feel much more alive. While connected via optical it's crystal clear and stays that way to about 85% volume range. After that it becomes distorted. The 10" sub is hard hitting with deep lows and a solid punch. If you adjust the volume on back of the sub to 75% it stays clear up thru the 85% total volume range. Any higher and it becomes muffled and a good deal of distortion. The 3D effect on the remote control is completely useless. It sounds horrible! Everything has an echo on this mode. No EQ settings or technology like Yamaha does that recreates a surround sound environment. Also, no clear mode, voice enhance or mode that keeps the commercials from blasting you out of the chair (it really does) The tiny remote is cheap and irritating. You have to point it directly at the speaker bar and hold it up in the air to get signal to the soundbar. Changing inputs is challenging as well. Connecting devices via Bluetooth is atrocious. It cuts in and out and it cuts purchase.haivolume almost in half. Once again, for the price shouldn't it have the latest 4.1 version of Bluetooth? Overall it's an "okay" buy and I wish I had gone with another brand.

    Pros: Powerful clear optical connection 6 speaker soundbar Hard hitting crisp 10" sub

    Cons: Cheap remote Useless 3D mode No EQ modes Bluetooth is very bad. Cuts in and out . Don't take the connected device out of the room or it will lose signal!

    Fortunately it was packed well, because UPS tried to break it. The box looked like it survived a tour in Afghanistan, on the bad guys side. The battery in the remote was DOA, no biggy, just have to find one. The speakers seem to work fine. Haven't had them long enough to figure everything out. Really don't get the surround sound effect that I can tell. Like I said, might be because I am missing some setting, but I have it hooked directly to my TV through the fiber optic connection, and the sound is infinitely better than the TV speaker, but not even close to my other surround sound system.

    The sound from the Klipsch Reference R-20 is fantastic for movies, tv. and music. The Klipsch Reference R-20 gives all we need to fill our open concept space and the bass is great as it brings our sounds we had not heard on our favorite shows before.

    Pros: Sound is really good. Although a little bigger than I would like the bar looks fantastic and the remote does what it needs to do.

    Cons: Setup was tricky with pairing to the wireless bass. A simple reset on the small holes of the back panels (bar then bass) took care of the problem fast. Too bad this note is not in the manual.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    First unit was defective, thankfully Crutchfield service and support was excellent, as always. Just set up the replacement for my first R-20B as the first one had defective Bluetooth. It would connect to my Apple TV or iPhone, but the audio was choppy and would drop out, no matter how close the device was to the soundbar. Otherwise, decent sound, pretty strong bass. I expected better sound but overall am satisfied for my purposes. The real let down is the toy remote and lack of instructions or user interface outside of one indicator light that denotes which input is on. For the sale price it's OK. If I had paid the list price, it would have gone back immediately.

    Pros: Crutchfield service saved the day! Easy set-up, decent bass, sounds OK on music.

    Cons: First one had defective Bluetooth receiver. Remote is junk. No user interface and instructions and Klipsch website are useless.

    Pros: Unbeatable with excellent sound and easy to connect with all my devices at home. Bluetooth is link fast.

    Cons: No Room for HDMI cord to connect to laptop or TV without digital optical space.

    Good, not great...

    Paul from Dunbar, WV on 6/20/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Pros : Good sound, not great, just good. Great price. Very easy hook up. Easy to reprogram TV remotes. It's a Klipsch so it looks great. Strong bass and good mid-range. Great, fast service from Crutchfield as usual. Wife real happy to see all the speakers and wire gone. Meh: No dialog steering, no center channel. Mid range background sound and music can overwhelm voices on some channels. Needs true center channel and some sort of dialog steering. Doesn't sound near as good as the 7.1 system it's replacing....not even close. But way better than the TV speakers for sure. Overall not as good a sound quality as I was expecting. Good not great. Cons: Packaging looks old, shelf worn. (how long you guys had these?) Arrived with minor damage to packaging and sub-woofer. Box appears to have been taped up by a 5 year old. Box damage looks old and not due to shipping. Way below the what I expect from Crutchfield. I would have a hard time recommending this purchase to a friend. I'm beginning to think the great price is due to this being really old stock. Note partially crushed accessory box and the white scrape down edge of sub. Sub is hidden behind TV stand so you can't see it anyway. But really surprised Crutchfield sent this out like this...not up to the standard I expect from you guys....disappointing.

    Pros: Price. No more wires! Good bass and mids. Easy set up. Looks good.

    Cons: No center dialog steering. Muddy voices on some channels. Appears to be really old stock. Old shelf worn packaging, minor damage to speaker and packaging.

    Sound Bar in Sr. Party Room

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Bought this for use in a Senior Citizens Building - Party Room. Only used it once, so far, for a movie. The movie was a showing of Somkey Joe's Cafe. A broadway musical with songs from the 50ies & 60ies. Everything sounded great no matter where I moved within the room. Have more movies scheduled in the future. Based on this 1st use I am very satisfied and would recommend.

    Pros: Great sound. Easy to set up

    Cons: Remote did not always communicate with the sound bar. May work better once the. Sound bar is mounted at proper height on the wall under the monthly.

    5 stars for this price

    Ronnie from Easley, SC on 6/9/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    5 stars for what it is, and its a sound bar. Its not gonna sound like a room full of book shelf speakers, 1000 dollar center channel, with a pair of Monitors in the front and rears speakers with 2 subs. But for what it is, it's awesome. I just hooked it up and the highs are not splashy like so many. They are very clear and blend well with the mid ranges. The Bluetooth works flawlessly on the sub and its a great 10 inch sub, yet people are complaining about it too. Its a 10 inch sub, its not gonna sound like a 12 or larger. But its still good deep tight bass. I was a little let down, you have to crank the knob so far to get a lot and I mean a lot of bass in your listening tastes. I like a lot of bass, but even with the knob jacked to almost wide open it doesn't distort even at full throttle on the volume. Its not worth 700-800 dollars by any means, but at this price, it is great. The sound bar sounds really good, clear, detailed, and not splashy. The 10 inch sub is a typical 10 inch sub that's tight bass that's low but not 12-15 low but still sounds really good..At this price point its 5 stars all the way. If it cost a couple hundred more, it would get a 3 from me. I've only heard one sound bar sound better and its in the thousands. Its the Bose Sound bar and sub . This SB you can run it from a computer 3mm headphone jack with RCAs, Optical Cables are an option too Its a great system for the money if you use a splitter you could run 2 different subs a high end Logitech really gives it some extra Kick and mids .

    Pros: Computer hook up, Bluetooth, wireless sub up to 50 feet, extremely clear, great highs and mids and not splashy. Not heavy, blends in nicely with furniture and other components. Great hard hitting tight bass. IF you are expecting this set up to sound like a true surround sound set up with center channels, front monitors, book shelf, and back speakers with a 15 inch sub you will get your feelings hurt because this aint it. But for this price point, you aren't gonna beat it, no way, no how.

    Cons: To get really high bass you have to take the knob past 75% but it will not distort. I wish it had component option but the optical is good. I hope with a splitter I can run two from the Computer, optical from the Xbox one. I stream all TV nothing prime time so this hook up gives me 3 different ways to use the sound bar. Xbox One, 3mm Splitter with RCA from Computer and you can stream KODI XBMC or use your Streaming Cable service etc .

    good sound, lousy engineering

    Jan from San Luis Obispo, CA on 6/5/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Good news first: great sound from this sound bar. We are old and have trouble understanding the dialog in TV shows, especially with British accents. The soundbar makes dialog so much clearer. That feature alone made it worth the price. We have had it only a few days and already it has eliminated the need to add closed captioning on some shows. Hooray. Neutral: external sub-woofer: if you sci fi or shows with lots of explosions, you'd be happy with the subwoofer. For us, not so important. Negatives: many! The manual is all pictorial and no text--worthless. Do you need to turn off the unit when shutting off the TV? Who knows? The manual doesn't address it. This system is poorly engineered in many respects: the subwoofer is heavy and needs indentations in the cabinet for handles--it is very cumbersome the way it is. The main unit is taller than expected, so when we put it in front of the Samsung TV, it blocks the TV receiver for signals from the remote--dumb! We have a lip on the TV stand that is only about half-an-inch high, but it blocks the controls on the soundbar! Dumb!! Don't get me started on how awful the Klipsch remote is; I sit only 10 feet away from the TV and the remote does not work at that distance! DUMB!!! I'm going to try a new battery to see if that helps, but it is a major drawback to have to get up and walk to within 4 feet of the soundbar before changing the volume.

    Pros: sound quality is excellent

    Cons: poor placement of controls; terrible remote; worthless instruction manual

    For the most part i enjoyed this soundbar. Mids are a little muddy due to small and tight soundbar box. The subwoofer is really nice and nobody includes a 10 inch sub with their soundbars besides Klipsch in this set. One thing I didnt like that knocked off a star is my samsung MU6300's remote uses a bluetooth signal rather than an infared signal and this soundbar wont let me auto program my remote to use with the soundbar. The remote that comes with the soundbar is really cheap looking. It also doesn't let you adjust the bass or treble. how it sounds is how it sounds. But all in all I think this is the best soundbar for the buck. A few things I didnt enjoy but I can live with them and ultimatley im happy with my purchase. On a side note for my next build im getting the Klipsch Sixes.....

    Certainly lives up to the brand name. Had friends at my home this weekend and all were impressed by the sound and quality. As others say, the remote isn't the greatest, but that isn't a big deal. I had one friend so impressed by it, he got on his phone and ordered it right then and there (he has a Bose system at home!). After shopping for a while, and almost pulling the trigger on a pricey Bose bar and woofer, I feel this was the perfect decision.

    I was shopping around several electronic stores researching sound bars and woofers when my brother referred me to Crutchfield.

    As you know, sound quality IS that of everyone's own opinion. However, the HUGE improvement I am experiencing with this Klipsch, is wonderful at the very least. I don't know how much more I would have to spend to actually hear any difference from this point, but I believe, it would be at least double! And I don't know if there would be a rewardable difference!

    Easy to install, took about 30 minutes to mount and connect the bar, and plug in the sub. The sound is great, very good equalization in the frequencies, and the sub does a very good job. Plenty of volume if you want to crank it up, and the sound is just as clear at a loud volume as with a low volume. I haven't used the Bluetooth so I can't review it, but for what I use it for, which is to better the sound from the TV, I am very satisfied. I am also very pleased with my advisor, she answered all my questions, whether technical or cosmetic, and made the decision making experience quite enjoyable.

    Pros: Easy installation and the sound is great. To me, as I hear it, the equalization of the sound frequencies are very natural, no piercing highs or mid-range.

    Cons: The box it came in was a little unorthodox. It took a little time to figure how to get it out without destroying it.

    Solid sound, bluetooth range miniscule.

    Zach from Beaverton, OR on 4/14/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The overall sound quality is pretty good for the money. The bass is deep and works well with good range allowing convenient placement. The packaging was a little rough. There was no damage but the box is an oddball shape and seems to take a decent amount of a beating in transit. Two main gripes - The bluetooth receiver is weak, the receiver must be on the side or back of the unit as my soundbar is placed inside a TV stand. Just a few feet away and I can not stream from a multitude of devices (LG v10 phone, Samsung galaxy 7 and iPhone 6 all suffer the same fate). The solution is to sit the device right next to the soundbar, otherwise it will cut out. The sub has no problem connecting whatsoever in this configuration, so no worries there. The remote control didn't work when I received it. There is a small springy wire that was not making contact with the battery so I had to bend it down a little to make it work. It is fine now but it is clearly a cheap, crappy remote. This is OK once you get it paired with your universal remote (took some time with that too as the Xfinity default settings did not work for it - some googling and I got a code that worked). Overall, the sound is solid for TV, movies and music but the bluetooth connectivity really is crappy on my unit. If you plan on having it sit on top of something and not inside, you should be just fine.

    Pros: Good sound, solid bass.

    Cons: Bluetooth range is spotty, remote is cheap and no display to indicate current volume etc.

    Amazing sound with limitations

    David from San Marcos, CA on 4/8/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I spent many months researching a sound bar. Our TV room is large 20' x 20' with the cathedral ceiling so I needed something that would fill the space with plenty of sound. I've known about Klipsch quality for years but this is my first Klipsch purchase. My Crutchfield advisor steered me to the R 20 mostly because of the number of speakers in the bar (6: 4 midrange and 2 tweeters) and the large subwoofer 10". Other sound bars do not have that many speakers. The sound is great and I''m pleased, but you need to understand the limitations all of which have been noted in previous reviews I'll summarize what I mean. 1. The remote has a very narrow operating window. If sitting to the side the bar will not detect the remote. I must be directly in front of the bar for it to work. 2. Easy Bluetooth connection to my iPad and music from my iPad and music sounds amazing. However if my iPad is further than 10 feet from the sound bar the signal breaks up and the music sounds staticky. I solved the problem by simply setting my iPad next to the sound bar, no more problems. So if your Bluetooth music source is further than 10 feet from the sound bar you'll have problems with connectivity. 3. I found the 3D mode useless. It lowers the volume and adds treble. Overall I'm very pleased with the R20. Great sound whether cable, blue ray, amazon fire stick or Bluetooth. The R20 remote frustrates my wife so the next step is a universal remote!

    Pros: Klipsch sound clarity, great bass response, fits my 55" Vizio, easy optical cable connection to TV, bought the "scratch and dent" looks brand new

    Cons: Remote direct line of sight to the bar only (can't be off to the side), short blue tooth range, useless 3D mode, can't pair the sound bar with my cable remote

    Tried the Sony HT-NT5 first (Bought it at a local store). The sound was very thin, with no mids at all, so I returned that. Decided to go with Crutchfield this time as their selection is much better and their service is generally very good. Just got the R-20B delivered. Hooked it all up, connected my phone to it with Bluetooth. First song I played, which starts as a beautiful piano solo, and the right-most speaker is buzzing like crazy. It's sitting on rubber feet, so it's not a vibration from the surface it's sitting on. Couldn't find anything on the enclosure or grill that would cause it... definitely coming from the speaker itself. If it wasn't for that, it would probably sound fine for the price. I wasn't wanting to spend much more, but I guess you get what you pay for. I guess I'll try Definitive Tech or Sonos next. Ugh... more money :-/

    Pros: Fast shipping

    Cons: Shipped in the manufacturer packaging (I knew this when I bought it) Bad speaker

    The soundbar produces sound I came to expect from Klipsch. It is crisp and clear. The subwoofer produces tight base. I am very happy with the quality of the sound. I have yet to have success in syncing my TV remote to control the soundbar volume. The instructions are straight forward but they are not working for me. I will keep trying. But this review is about the sound quality of this soundbar. In my book it deserves 5 starts.

    Great sound Bar! I've had it for 2 weeks, and the speakers are starting to get broke in, with great results. Does a nice job of simulating surround sound. The only complaint I have is the 3D sound. If you're old enough and remember the stereo wide mode on your car radio, that's what it sounds like, making the sound like the speakers are wider apart. But when activated, the 3D effect removes a lot of bass from the sound, leaving way to much treble for my taste. But all in all, a nice set up.

    Pros: Cost effective on sale Sub has great punch its size Easily mounts under the TV with brakets.

    Cons: 3D mode removes a lot of bass when used

    This Klipsch sound bar gives you great bang for the buck. There are some weak ones, that have a cheaper price. But this one has a great price, and an even greater sound. The highs are great. Clear and understandable. And the lows are also great. You can hear all the "booms" when needed.

    This system does exactly what I wanted it to do. Easy setup, great depth in the bass, easy transfer of the volume and mute to my Comcast Xfinity remote control and clear dialogue in 3D mode. The price is right too. My only complaint is that the Owner's Manual is too sketchy and the Service Manual mentioned as an online resource is nowhere to be found. Fortunately, a call to the Crutchfield help line resolved my setup questions very quickly and expertly.

    Nice sound. Bluetooth streaming of audio via my iPad works nicely. But I could not get optical cable to connect with my Hitachi TV. Having to use RCA audio cables until I hear back from Klipsch support. One BIG issue is the unit turns on by itself. I don't always want to use the soundbar, so this is bothersome when the unit suddenly comes on as I am watching something.

    Pros: Nice sound. Bluetooth streaming of music from iPad.

    Cons: Cannot get optical cable connection to TV. Unit turns itself on at times when I don't want to use it while watching TV, example: 5 minutes into watching a show the soundbar comes on.

    I finally got around to adding a soundbar to the big screen, and am more than pleased with this purchase. It converts what was once a dull and unpleasurable listening experience into one the family looks forward to. Although I have not finalized the subwoofer location, the volume is currently set at the mid point and causes a rippling sensation through my body. The few movies we have watched gives us the "cinema" experience. I would have rated at least 4.5 but there is an oddity listed in the con section I have yet to resolve.

    Pros: Amazing and airy sound.

    Cons: The soundbar turns itself on intermittently even when the source is powered off.

    Sound is very good for the money invested. The remote is a joke and have been unable to get it to pair with the TV remote. The operation of the remote is irregular, it will not work more that about twelve feet from the sound bar. Sometime you must turn the unit off and restart it to get the remote to work at all. Klipsch needs to completely rethink the remote.

    The Reference R-20 does have the Klipsch signature sound, Very crisp and clean. I have read where some thought the bass was not as musical as they thought it should be but I find it to be fine. The system will fill your room with great sound. I wish it did have more adjustments to it but for the price you will not find anything that will sound as good as this.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I kept debating between the Klipsch Reference R-20B and the Klipsch R-15PM with a subwoofer added. I knew that I wanted to improve the sound of the TV speaker. Tim suggested the Reference R-20B which was approximately $250 less than the alternative. I will have to say that the Reference R-20B has a great sound and was a breeze to set-up. I have no trouble hearing dialogue now. In addition, I listened to some CD's through the DVD player (Doors, Eagles, Buckinghams). They all sounded great. I have owned for nearly 20 years a component stereo system with an amp, pre-amp, and Paradigm 70-P speakers with powered subwoofers. Naturally, that systems sounds better. But that system also cost a whole lot more than this system. The Klipsch soundbar and subwoofer certainly sound great for the price. I highly recommend. Finally, Crutchfield was great on service. I will be ordering from them in the future since they can provide technical service that some other online vendors do not.

    I just happened to get the R-20B because a buddy had the R-10B and I didn't know what he had until I bought mine. I just knew it was a Klipsch Reference. It seems going forward the 10" sub is going away. The R20 has a 10" sub, the new models and the R-10B seem to have 8". This baby works great. I love it. Movies are brought to life and I have a wide open house so it sounds really good. The only issue I have is the Bluetooth is choppy at times. I mean a song will "skip." Maybe I am too far away from the sound bar. The sub that is wireless works great. Oh, the wire hook up design is almost and L you go in and up....that is a bit hard to hide wires. From day one out of the box the powercord bend kindoff broke but not a big deal. Overall, I Love it and Crutchfield was super great.

    I bought this system for a 200 sq ft room and the sound is incredible. The wireless subwoofer and the included optical cable make set up easy. The only con I have so far is the instructions are unclear. It takes a bit of playing with the "source" buttons to figure out how to toggle between tv audio and bluetooth. Overall 5/5 stars. I purchased this because of a Crutchfield recommendation and research. I wanted quality and this Klipsch sound bar system exceeded my expectations.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I bought the R10 but returned it as I decided that I needed that bigger sub. Great decision. I really needed a sound bar that sounded reasonably good with tv but could jam with Bluetooth music. This turned out to be a perfect choice! You will catch every high not and all cymbals crashing with the bar. Very clear and cryspy sound. If you like reggae, R & B, and hip hop like I do, you can't get better bass for this money!! It rocks my whole house. All in all I think this is the best sound bar you can buy in this price range. Things I don't like: poor range in the Bluetooth (less than 20 feet), the Bluetooth cuts out every now and then. The only solution appears to be turn it off and in again. Also, there is no control for tone adjustments. Thus, you had better like the way it sounds right out if the box because that's it! I hate the 3D sound. Again, great unit for the price despite a few short comings. The sub is worth the price of admission by itself. Enjoy!!????????

    Pros: Killer bass Very clear highs

    Cons: No tone control Bluetooth distance way too short Blutooth cuts out on occasion.

    Good sound with plenty of bass. The bass can be overwhelming so I have to keep it set just below halfway. However, I'm pretty disappointed. I would expect at this price range to have some crossover adjustment. The system could be so much better with just a little adjustment capability. Also, the remote is a total joke. Klipsch should be embarrassed. Ive never had a cheaper feeling or functioning remote at any price level.

    Awesome sound! Was considering this vs. Polk Audio and after speaking with Andy I decided on the Klipsch. Easy set up, simple features and not loaded down with all the "bells and whistles" that I wouldn't use anyway. Keeping it simple. Nice deep bass. Im glad I went with this over the R-10B. Worth the extra money in my opinion. Crutchfield was great to deal with. I will buy from them again.

    We purchased this product for Christmas and Crutchfield was awesome in guiding us to the right product ofr our needs and sending it out promptly. Unfortunately, we got a defective unit that had to be replaced. The replacement is wonderful quality and greatly imrpoved the sound over what was built into our TV. We are very happy with our purchase and even though we had a problem with the original one, Crutchfield immediately sent the replacement and a shipping label for returning the defective one. I would definitely recommend this product and Crutchfield. This soundbars fills our room with the action and our room is 27' by 26'.

    Pros: Sound quality is awesome. Very clear even at louder volumes

    Cons: We could use a bit more bass due to the size of our room (Large room with cathedral ceiling) but it is still very good and we are still experimenting with the placement of the subwoofer.

    This sound bar system performed way better than expected. Amazing voice clarity, with a loud but relevant mid to high sound range coming from the bar. Amazing thunderous bass coming from the wireless sub. I have had a few home theater system throughout the years and this Klipsch setup is totally worth the money!

    Pros: Ample bass, great sound range, easy setup, minimal wires

    Cons: No HDMI connection

    Real piece of junk. No treble at all, must merge with TV speakers to get full range. Bluetooth or whatever has a serious problem with delay (like 5 minutes) then comes on full blast. I haven't figured out how to control which bluetooth feed it is getting and there is no indication what that be be , all you get are flashing lights.

    Ok, for those of us who want to be immersed in an auditory experience when watching a movie, this is it, use the optical audio link and place the subwoofer in a corner or enclosed area and prepare your ears for an experience. The bass winds up slowly like a locomotive and once going, wow. The sound bar is perfect, the fullest range of your mid and upper frequencies are crisp full toned, the 3D option to the sound is a nice touch for spatial separation, oh and the more you turn it up, the better it sounds, distortion is non existent and the bass is in a sweet spot, depending on the music or movie being heard it is spot on, just buy this thing, it's a sleeper of a product and when you wake it up, you are in for a treat.

    Pros: Everything is right with this one

    Cons: Lack of 3 mm input, but can't have everything now.

    Superb. The wireless TEN INCH sub provides all the bass you need if you are going the soundbar route. I put this in my basement and it easily fills the room with crystal clear sound. I haven't really tested it's limits yet but what I've tried so far is super loud and clear. Quality.

    This is an awesome sounding bar and subwoofer combo. Super easy set-up and works with almost any TV remote for volume so you don't have to use the separate(supplied) remote. Plus auto oon/off when source is found or lost. Solid feeling and quality. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of lack of expandability for rear surround sound speakers. Still great sound bar/subwoofer combo, especially for the price!

    Pros: Easy Set-up Bluetooth Wireless Sub auto on/off

    Cons: can not expand for rear surround sound speakers

    Nice Sounds, Plenty of Bass, Quality Finish, Needs 1 or 2 more options

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Its now been 4 weeks of using this sounds bar and am satisfied with the sounds delivery and consultation from Crutchfields team. The bar hangs above the the TV and found the clarity and frequencies to be acceptable and pleasing. Thorough equipped with 3D sound technology, I can't say I'm a fan of it. I've opted to keep that function off. Many pros, including proper and deep bass, for those who are bass lovers, and well tuned for audible dialogue. Cons, only optical and RCA outputs. Can only program volume up and down, but not off. It will turn on with TV however. Programming that part was a tad tricky, primarily because the instructions manual is written in an enigmatic way. Syncing Bluetooth is a breeze. Turning off Bluetooth is not typical, but easy enough once learned (had to look it up). I'd buy this product again and do recommend it for those looking for a clean setup and good results. Great for movies and music. It would be 5 stars if there was 1 more output option and the On/Off would work in tandem with TV On/Off.

    Wow!!! What a sound. I never thought a sound bar could sound so good. It came down to replacing my receiver or getting a sound bar. The awesome Crutchfield staff convinced me to give this one a try. I was looking at other models that were around the same price but as the advisor told me, for a little title bit more I could move from a Toyota to a BME. I now have a BMW. Awesome sound. Crutchfield is the best. Would never go anywhere else. Thanks for the recommendation.

    The sound bar delivers crisp, clear dialogue. The 3D format is great for movies and best utilizes the subwoofer. The remote is somewhat confusing with pictures and no explanation. I called Crutchfield and was given explanations. Great service as usual from their staff. The sale price made this step-up possible. Set-up was a matter of a few minutes. The information pages included the program number for connecting to Infinity. The Comcast Infinity directions for programming their remote with the Klipsch did not include that number on their list. Very pleased with unit and with Crutchfield price and service.

    Easy to set-up with the wires and such. Very baffling on how to control/use it. Instructions use symbols/icons without defining them. The instruction manual was mysterious and just about useless. The sound quality is a very great improvement over the built-in speakers on our new 65" TV. We can understand the dialogue on shows now. I really enjoy music too, it helps to be able to kick up the bass for music.

    Pros: Sound quality very satisfying for speech and music.

    Cons: User instructions poorly written. I needed a teenager to set-up the "pad" control.

    I have the cheaper Klipsch R4B. It's great and I love it. Was upgrading to the R20B and going to move the R4 to spare room. Disappointed in the bigger one. Increase in quality of sound was frankly rather minor. Also the R4 has better features, namely a dialogue enhancer on the remote which works great to hear voices plus you can control sublevel woofer from remote. Finally the 3D is much better on the R4. The 20b is horrible. Sounds like a Tin can. Really bummed. Thought I would get a much better R4. Turns out not really just one with less features and a bigger sub. Oh well. Back it goes.

    Pros: Nice sub. Good sound

    Cons: Less features than the model three levels down.

    Best soundbar for my condo.

    Ken from Charlottesville, VA on 11/21/2016

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Bought this soundbar for a large, open living space (living/dining/kitchen/sunroom) in our condo. Running wires to speakers with a traditional home theater system would have been prohibitive & messy. This Klipsch system is tremendous. It fills my large room with incredible sound -- something the TV speakers will never do. The wireless sub-woofer was easily placed to be out of the way, yet provides great low-end sound. It's also important to be able to adjust the sub so I'm not bothering my neighbors. The bluetooth connection is a nice addition but I've never been able to have a reliable connection beyond 10-15 feet. Connects are dead simple -- plug in power cords and connect the included digital optical cable. I bought my first set of Klipsch speakers in 1984 and I'm impressed that they are still producing great sounding speakers today. I highly recommend this soundbar.

    Pros: Great sound, compact size, easy set-up.

    Cons: Only one digital audio connection, no wifi (for streaming my iTunes library to).

Incredibly simple hook up and boom... I had incredible sound in my living room.
