Experience amazing sound from all your gear
The Sixes powered speakers by Klipsch are ready for anything. They have a built-in phono amp for your turntable, and they're Bluetooth-enabled for streaming from your smartphone or tablet. There's a USB port for great computer sound, and a stereo minijack for just about anything else.
Ready for your TV
The speakers also feature an optical digital audio input, so you can run digital sound from your TV directly to the Sixes — ideal setup for watching videos in a bedroom or guest room. A mono subwoofer output lets you add a powered sub to make movie soundtracks really come to life.
Retro style, legendary sound
The Sixes are part of Klipsch's Heritage Wireless series, and sport a cool retro look with tactile spun copper control knobs and real wood veneer. Each speaker features a 1" titanium tweeter mated with a Klipsch Tractrix® horn to deliver clean, clear highs. And the 6-1/2" spun copper woofer gives you solid, natural midrange and bass, with a rear-firing port to further reinforce the low frequencies.

More details on the Klipsch The Sixes
Klipsch Heritage Design: Incorporating luxury materials such as real wood veneer and tactile spun copper switches and knobs, the Klipsch Sixes blend the acoustics and classic design legacy of Paul W. Klipsch with the latest technologies available today.
Custom Engineered Amplifiers: The Sixes powered monitors deliver room-filling sound without taking up much space thanks to built-in amplifiers that are custom-engineered for these high performance speakers, maximizing output and sound quality. The Sixes incorporate individual ultra-low noise amplifiers that are custom designed to maximize system performance and eliminate the need for external amplification.
Two-Way Driver Design: The Klipsch Sixes utilize a two-way driver design with a 1" titanium tweeter mated to Tractrix Horn and a 6.5" long-throw polypropylene woofer with a rubber surround. The Tractrix horn-loaded 1" titanium dome tweeter provides a natural, lifelike sound, while the square Tractrix horn offers up a 90° x 90° dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage. The 6.5" long-throw polypropylene woofer delivers accurate, detailed midrange/midbass performance.
Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Klipsch Sixes employ a bass reflex cabinet with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The cabinet is slightly angled upward for better sound dispersion into the room. The cabinets are constructed of MDF and finished with a walnut veneer. Magnetic grilles finish off the speakers' look and feel.
- Overall Cabinet Dimensions: 8.6875" (w) x 16.75" (h) x 12.875" (d)
- Outer Footprint Dimensions: 7.75" (w) x 9.625" (d)
- Inner Footprint Dimensions: 6.625" (w) x 8.3125" (d)
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Klipsch Sixes tabletop stereo system features Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology so you can enjoy streaming online music services, internet radio, or music content stored on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. Pairing your Bluetooth source device with the Sixes is extremely easy; just press and hold the source button on the speaker and select "Klipsch The Sixes" on your Bluetooth device. The speakers will only pair with one device at a time. Once paired, the Sixes will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
Note: You will still control your music from your Bluetooth source device (not the speaker).
USB-B Input: The Klipsch Sixes speaker system features USB (type-B) input on the back of the "Right" speaker for connecting your Windows PC or Mac computer/laptop. Through the Sixes' USB connection, you are able to play music files (up to 24-bit/96kHz) stored on your Windows PC or Mac computer/laptop through the powered speaker system. Basic playback control (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) can be done from the included remote control. Advanced music browsing and song/artist info are still handled from your computer. You will need to install a dedicated USB driver from the Klipsch website onto your Windows PC before connecting your computer (Mac computers will not need this dedicated driver).
Note: There is also a rear-panel USB-A port which is used for service, software, and firmware updates only.
Optical Digital Input: The Klipsch Sixes are fitted with an optical (toslink) digital input on the back of the "Right" speaker for connection to a digital audio device like your TV, Blu-ray, or CD player. The speaker's optical digital input will accept 2ch stereo PCM only (up to 24-bit/96kHz).
Aux Input: The Klipsch Sixes also features a 3.5mm analog input, so you can connect practically any audio source via either a 3.5mm-to-3.5mm audio cable or an RCA-to-3.5mm audio cable (sold separately). Connect your portable music player, TV, or any audio source with an analog audio output or headphone jack. The Aux input is located on the back of the "Right" speaker.
Line or Phono Analog Input: In addition, the Klipsch Sixes is equipped with a stereo RCA input that can used as a Line or Phono (MM) input. There is a switch on the back-panel that lets you select between line-level or the built-in phono (MM) preamp. Connect your CD player, Blu-ray player, Turntable, and other audio sources with an analog audio output. The Line/Phono input and switch is located on the back of the "Right" speaker.
Subwoofer Output: The Sixes also include a subwoofer output so you can easily add a powered sub to the system. The subwoofer output consists of a mono-RCA jack and is located on the back of the "Right" speaker.
Controls: The Klipsch Sixes come with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the speaker system. The remote provides the following control functions - Power on/off, Source selection, Volume up/down, Sub level, and LED illumination. There is also Power, Source, and Volume controls on the front-panel of the "Right" speaker.
Detachable AC Power Cord: The included 59" detachable AC power cord plugs into the back of the "Right" speaker and then into an AC wall outlet, surge protector, or power conditioner.
Proprietary Speaker Cable: The included 20' proprietary speaker cable connects the Klipsch Sixes' powered speaker (Right) and slave speaker (Left) together for power and audio signal.
