Our take on the Klipsch The One by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Great for home or office.
A feast for the senses
The One from Klipsch appeals to the senses. Part of Klipsch's Heritage Wireless series, it has a deliciously retro look that catches your eye. Professionally tuned speakers delight your ears. And the spun copper switches and control knobs provide tactile pleasure to your fingertips. It makes an attractive addition to a den, office, or guest room.
Superior sound from true speaker experts
The One features two 2-1/4" full range drivers that present full, detailed stereo sound. The drivers are bi-amped for exceptional accuracy and clarity. A 4-1/4" woofer fills out the low end with depth and warmth. Stream to The One from your smartphone, tablet or computer via Bluetooth. Or use the included stereo minijack cable to connect a portable player to The One for playback.
For home or office
The One's built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 8 hours of operation, to get you through the work day. You can also leave it connected to its AC charging cable for a more permanent setup.

Klipsch Heritage Design: Incorporating luxury materials such as real wood veneer and tactile spun copper switches and knobs, the Klipsch One blends the acoustics and classic design legacy of Paul W. Klipsch with the latest technologies available today.
Professionally Tuned Stereo Sound: The Klipsch One is a 2.1ch stereo system that is biamplified (30W RMS/50W Peak) for audiophile resolution and features two 2.25" full-range drivers and a 4.5" woofer. Its been professionally tuned by Klipsch engineers to deliver a crystal clear acoustic performance with great bass. You'll be surprised at the sound quality that comes from such a small package.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The One 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 One is extremely easy; just press and hold the source button on the speaker and select "Klipsch The One" on your Bluetooth device. Playback control and song/artist info is still handled from your Bluetooth source device.
Aux Input: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity, the One 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 CD player, computer, Blu-Ray player, or any audio source with an analog audio output or headphone jack.
8-Hour Rechargeable Battery: The Klipsch One features an 8-hour rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. An AC power adapter is included to charge the built-in battery and supply power to the wireless speaker system.
Flexible Placement Options: The One wireless speaker system is small enough that it can be placed almost anywhere - on a table-top, counter-top, shelf, end-table, nightstand, dresser, or small credenza.

Why did you buy this?
Needed to replace Bose Soundlink. Like the retro design and good reviews. Crutchfield customer since 1989 (I believe). [ MARIUS F May 17, 2018 ]
I have Klipsch front speakers RF7II, center channel RC64II and I very confident with Klipsch sound. [ ISIDRO Jan 27, 2018 ]
Recommended by colleagues [ Gerald Dec 06, 2017 ]
decided to by because of brand name, site reviews as well as publication review(s) [ JAMES Aug 15, 2017 ]
loved the look and my friend said it is the BEST. [ Lisa Aug 14, 2017 ]
Had a previous Klipsch speaker before hope this one is even better. Still have the other but is not Bluetooth & it doesn't run on battery. I can take this camping downside would be not being moisture resistant. [ Rodney Jun 24, 2017 ]
Mostly because it seemed like the best option for our situation. Bigger than the little "toy" bluetooth speakers, and the styling seemed appropriate for our decorating. Plus the Klipsch reputation for good sounding speakers. [ Lisa Mar 01, 2017 ]
I was looking at buying a higher quality and classy speaker to use when I'm casually streaming music, audiobooks, or podcasts. The Klipsch speaker checks all the boxes. [ Leonard Nov 03, 2018 ]
I have always enjoyed the full sound of Klipsch. And they have always been top of the lists for sub-woofers. And this speaker meets my needs of mating my iPhone/iPad by wire. [ MELINDA A Jul 04, 2018 ]
Advise from Kyle, nice look, trust in Crutchfield products [ Paul Sep 21, 2017 ]
I love the retro look and the styling brings back warm memories of audio gear from I remember from my childhood. Plus, I've yet to experience the Klipsch experience and this will be my introduction to it. I'm looking forward to my delivery! [ Edward Aug 13, 2017 ]
Sound quality reviews, price, size. [ Matthew Jul 31, 2017 ]
I am a Klipsch fan and have always liked their speakers. Can't wait to try their Bluetooth The One speaker. Like the retro look and walnut grain. [ kenneth Jul 31, 2017 ]

It looks beautiful and retro. It will match my office environment perfectly. I have not heard it yet in person but have no doubt that it will sound great (for it's size) being from Klipsch. [ CRAIG Dec 30, 2016 ]
10 questions already asked
No. Although it does have "auto off" after a few minutes of inactivity. [ shawn Nov 18, 2017 ]
No. It will power off after a period of time if no input signal is detected. Then you have to manually turn it back on at the on/off toggle switch. [ GENE A Nov 17, 2017 ]
Thanks for the question! Klipsch's The One speaker features Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology but does not include apt-X coding. For more details or to discuss further, feel free to reach out to an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. [ Larry Jun 15, 2017 ] Staff
No [ GENE A Jun 07, 2017 ]
not that i am aware of [ darlene Jun 07, 2017 ]
No, there is no synch function with The One. Awesome unit however. [ Erik Jun 07, 2017 ]
To figure that out for certain, you would be better served contacting an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. They can gather the qualifying information about your current "main" system in order to determine whether the Klipsch speaker will work correctly. [ Larry Apr 30, 2017 ] Staff
According to the spectrum app on my phone it's pretty solid to 50hz with output into the mid 40s but it seems to fall off around 50hz. This is really good for the size of the box and driver. [ GENE A Nov 17, 2017 ]
Pretty impressive actually [ GENE A Jun 07, 2017 ]
Bass is excellent for the size of the box. [ GENE A Mar 13, 2017 ]
Bass is excellent for a speaker this size. Compares well to the beat box by dr dre that came out like 5 or 6 years ago. [ Brian Jan 03, 2017 ]
Have not needed to look into that yet as we still are having good luck with battery we have [ Brian Aug 29, 2017 ]
It does not come with a remote. However, we have some bluetooth speakers that do come with a remote. I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for a personal recommendation on with a remote. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul Jul 09, 2017 ] Staff

Yes [ Taylor Apr 29, 2017 ]
No thankfully. They have thought this one through pretty well. [ John Apr 29, 2017 ]
No, it unplugs to make it portable. [ DOUG Apr 29, 2017 ]
NO, THE POWER CORD PLUGS IN THE BACK FOR CHARGEING OR CAN BE LEFT IN TO KEEP A FULL CHARGE. YOU CAN TAKE THE UNIT OUTSIDE, ON A BACK DECK TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WITHOUT BEING PLUGGED IN. I'VE HAD MINE FOR A LITTLE OVER A MONTH NOW AND LIKE IT VERY MUCH. THE SOUND QUALITY IS QUITE NICE FOR SUCH A SMALL UNIT. I'D BUY IT AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT....I'VE ALWAYS LIKED KLIPSCH PRODUCTS. I HOPE THIS INFO HELPS YOU.... [ Richard Apr 29, 2017 ]
No. It plugs into the back as AC power, but can be detached. [ Joshua Apr 28, 2017 ]
We've usd it on our deck, which is just outside an area with a Mac mini music server...no problems with Bluetooth, speaker at least 20 feet away and through one wall. [ John Apr 29, 2017 ]
The Klipsch speaker I purchased is not what I consider an outdoor speaker. I use my iPhone and iheart for my Bluetooth and it works very well and has a great sound [ Buck Mar 14, 2017 ]
Since it is winter here, I have only used it indoors. It seems to have about a 30 foot range to an IPhone inside. [ shawn Mar 14, 2017 ]
ED this is not and outdoor specker but the signal works very well anywhere in the house ,the sound is great. P.s. I never took it out side. Ronnie [ RONALD C Mar 13, 2017 ]
Your indoor system would need a BT transmitter and be within 30 feet or so the the speaker. [ GENE A Mar 13, 2017 ]
