Overview

Our take on the Klipsch RP-260 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System

Looking for speakers that can fill your large room with lifelike sound, and then some? Judging from the track record that Klipsch enjoys among our customers, we think this system will hit the nail on the head. Here's how one fan described the included floor-standing front speakers: "The bass, highs, airiness, and overall soundstage are spectacular (and they are not even broken in yet)." Pair these Klipsch speakers up with your home theater receiver and get ready for serious surround sound and rich-sounding music to boot. Keep in mind — these are big, efficient speakers that can really play loud. So crank it up, have fun, and remember to give your ears a break from time to time.

Serious home theater horsepower

  • a pair of Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-260F floor-standing speakers (in ebony)
  • the Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-440C center channel speaker (in ebony)

The dynamic sound of Klipsch Reference Premiere

We're used to hearing great things from our customers about Klipsch's signature sound. One technology that helps create that famous Klipsch sound is the horn-loaded driver. Flared openings in the speaker cabinet project sound waves toward your listening area, boosting dynamics and efficiency. The Reference Premiere speakers that make up this system's front, center, and surrounds all use a newly developed Hybrid Tractrix® horn design that delivers a wider sweet spot with more precise spatial imaging. They also use copper-colored Cerametallic™ woofers that deliver smooth, articulate sound, as well as lending your system a striking appearance when you take the grilles off.

Klipsch's Cerametallic™ woofers, shown here on the center channel, deliver smooth sound and have a striking look.

Home theater thunder

Klipsch rounds out the package with their powerful Reference R-112SW, a powered sub featuring a 12" woofer and 300-watt amplifier. One Crutchfield customer sums it up nicely: "It has a nice musical sound when needed. Or an explosion effect can rattle the house." We couldn't have said it any better.

Fantastic Speakers well worth the price

Alexander from Madison, WI on 5/1/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Absolutely phenomenal speaker package. The speakers are a breeze to setup and install and look fantastic. Even the packaging they came in was very well constructed and sturdy. The sound quality is fantastic and exactly what you'd expect from Klipsch. The system is primarily used for movies and sports with some music thrown in, and I've not once been disappointed in how they sound. The system is expensive, but I find it very unlikely they'll warrant replacing even in the next decade. I'd have no qualms about recommending this setup to anyone looking for a very high end system that will last you for many years. I have them paired with a Marantz SR6010 receiver as well for reference.

Pros: Gorgeous design, easy setup and installation, and great quality sound.

Cons: The Price is awfully high, but as the adage goes "Buy Nice or Buy Twice."

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

home owner my "dream setup" RARELY if ever post reviews but this set and Klipsch deserves my compliments- fantastic set- I augmented this with an additional sub (same as in set), pair Klipsch Atmos speakers, additional pair of surround speakers (same as in set) receiver- Yamaha rx a3050 did a lot of research -pre purchase: in a dedicated home theater room approx. 12x16 Pros the sound is extraordinary- full, rich enveloping clear- its not about loudness- although the receiver/speakers can go much louder than I need or want- it just fills the room - perfectly- especially with Atmos Blurays Cons- all speakers are good sized so you need room for them- see the dimensions (need enough room). - Cant imagine a better set/ sound setup for home theater. would buy again.

Pros: the sound... simply amazing. Klipsch - has done a fantastic job with this set. - out of the box no tweaking yet and sound produced is incredible. everyone who watches a move comments on the sound- how fantastic it is -even non-audiophiles.

Cons: size of speakers(large) but sound produced is fantastic!/ Price but get what you pay for. this is my once in a lifetime set. I would buy again without any regrets! regarding size: speakers fit very well in 12w wide by 16 feet long room
