Overview

Our take on the Klipsch Reference R-20B

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.

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.

    Features

    Soundbar + Wireless Sub System: The Klipsch R-20B 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-20B 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.

    • Active Soundbar w/ Horn-Loaded Technology: The Klipsch R-20B's self-powered soundbar speaker utilizes horn-loading technology designed to send sound more directly to the listening area. By incorporating highly efficient horn-loaded technology into the soundbar, all sounds are more detailed, dialog clarity is significantly improved, and overall output is maximized to cover even the largest listening areas. The soundbar speaker utilizes two 0.75" horn-loaded textile dome tweeters mated with 90° x 90° Tractrix horns that deliver crisp highs. Four 3" polypropylene woofers round out the enhanced sound with crisp vocals and dynamic soundtracks. The Tractrix horns both reduce distortion and increase dispersion more directly to the main listening area. Reduced distortion increases sonic detail while controlled dispersion sends more sound to the listening area for greater accuracy and openness.
    • Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The Klipsch R-20B includes a wireless powered subwoofer with a 10" side-firing fiber composite woofer in a bass reflex enclosure with a rear slot-port. The sophisticated 2.4 GHz technology automatically connects the soundbar and subwoofer together wirelessly; up to 50'. Subwoofer cabinet construction is critical for proper bass reproduction. Particleboard or, even worse, plastic subwoofer cabinets resonate in a manner that severely distorts bass, causing it to sound "boomy". The Klipsch R-20B subwoofer uses a very solid MDF cabinet to prevent unwanted vibration and distortion. The wireless powered subwoofer has an independent volume control dial located on its rear-panel.

    3D Surround Mode: The Klipsch R-20B 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-20B 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-20B 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-20B 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-20B system. Once paired, the R-20B 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-20B.

    Remote Control: You can program the Klipsch R-20B'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.

    Positive reviews [ Reuben  Feb 10, 2018 ]
    I chose this for now only the Klipsch reputation of high quality, but also the opportunity to purchase a scratch and dent sale that saved me an additional $92 off the already low sale price. I have purchased "scratch and dent" items before and they always look brand new to me. Klipsch offered built-in bluetooth rather than a separate adapter with Polk. [ Adam  Jan 31, 2018 ]
    It seemed to fit my needs and came highly recommended by my advisor Tatum. [ MARC  Jan 30, 2018 ]
    Wanted better sound from my tv. [ J  Jan 28, 2018 ]
    I have the Klipsch R-10B and love it but would like more bass and overall better immersive sound for the family room. I think the R-20B will fulfill that void. [ Eduardo  Jan 27, 2018 ]
    Klipsch is a solid brand. Love their sound and reliability. I have had the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers for my computer for 6 years now and they still sound great. Looking forward to hearing my TV shows/movies come alive! [ Robert  Jan 24, 2018 ]
    Great price, excellent reviews, and positive recommendations from Crutchfield reps all played a role in purchasing this item. [ Scott  Jan 20, 2018 ]
    Appeared to have the best value. Narrowed down to Yamaha was 207 and this. Subwoofer was smaller and decided based on that. [ Mark  Jan 07, 2018 ]
    Great Value [ James  Jan 01, 2018 ]
    Good reviews and an impressive sub [ Shizanester  Dec 23, 2017 ]
    Have one already. Sounds great. Good value. [ C  Dec 19, 2017 ]
    Crutchfield's comparison between this and the Klipsch model one tier down persuaded me. The additional speakers suggest a more effective capacity for differentiating speaking audio from sound effects and music. I look forward to finding out. [ Bryan  Dec 16, 2017 ]
    Price + Good reviews on Crutchfield website and other online sources [ H  Dec 15, 2017 ]

    After my research and reviews of soundbars with subwoofer for smaller spaces, the Klipsch Reference R-20B was on the top 3 list based on sound quality, features and design......but it was on the pricy side.... until Crutchfield offered the outstanding sale price of $399.99. My patience paid off !! [ Daniel  Jan 06, 2017 ]

    Klipsch always sounds good [ Cory  Dec 27, 2016 ]
    After a lot of research these Klipsh speakers seem like the best product in this category for the money. Voice clarity was important, as well as great sound with clean sub-base,and several reviewers commented on side by side comparisons with other brands that these had superior sound over others of equal or much higher prices.

    It was on a great sale price and I know Kipsch makes a very nice product. I was going to go with the polk unit on sale for 250 and saw the Klipsch R-10B for 50 more.... thought about it and went with the R-20B for 150 more than the Polk. I am confident for the 50% off I will not be let down. Troy was a help as well. [ Paul  Dec 13, 2016 ]

    All the research done pointed me directly to Klipsch. I wanted to have a proven high end home audio system that had a heavy low end with crisp, clear mid's and highs for both movies and streaming music. [ Mike D  Nov 20, 2016 ]

    I bought the 10B and I love it so I bought the 20B for another room.I had a Klipsch Horn years ago when there was no Stereo. Klipsch was always the best and Crutchfield was always # 1 [ Richard  Oct 27, 2016 ]
    The help from Ozzy was the deciding factor. He was knowledgeable and listened to what I was looking for. You should be proud to have him on your staff. Thanks Ozzy! [ Kimberly  Oct 23, 2016 ]

    Great price. I have not owned Klipsch before, but an audiophile family member has a Klipsch system and it sounded amazing. I listened to this model in a store and it too sounded great. I was looking for something less expensive, but the reviews and sound quality persuaded me that the investment would be worth it...I hope. [ Kyle  Sep 11, 2016 ]

    15 questions already asked

    Yes on Amazon [ MICHAEL P  Apr 20, 2018 ]
    Not sure if I'm understanding the question correctly but you don't need to purchase another remote just for this system because you can pair or sync your tv reomote to this system. If kind of difficult but it can be done to whatever remote you have [ Rashod  Apr 20, 2018 ]
    I don't know. [ Patrick  Apr 20, 2018 ]
    Not that I am aware of. If so I would like to try it. Their remote (sucks)! [ RICHARD  Apr 19, 2018 ]
    I've bought 3 of this unit and love it. The remote is the worst thing you could ever find. I've always programmed it to a universal remote. Just last month I got a Logitech ui universal. Problem solved again! [ James  Apr 19, 2018 ]
    Not to my knowledge [ MICHAEL  Apr 19, 2018 ]
    Yes. Just call Klipsch to order one. You will not find it on their web site. Or you can get a larger remote that you won't so easily lose in you Sofa for a little more money. Mine is a Redi Remote I got on Amazon. [ Joseph  Apr 19, 2018 ]
    MM...apologies as I still have all my OEM remotes and have never had the need to research aftermarket units at this point. [ Joseph  Apr 19, 2018 ]
    To be honest I can not answer this question. What I do know is when you tune in to NETFLEX be sure you turn the volumne down first or it will blow you out of the room! [ RICHARD  Feb 13, 2018 ]
    Installation is so easy you don't need one. Plug and play, incredible Sign. [ Patrick  Jan 28, 2018 ]
    No, I performed the installation myself. It really isn't difficult, and only requires a few simple tools. I believe you can do it yourself like I did. [ David T.  Jan 23, 2018 ]
    No it is not hard at all to set up. Only complaint I have is how poorly it works. Maybe it is just mine but have not been happy at all. [ Daniel P.  Jan 22, 2018 ]
    Can't help you my unit looses it blue tooth capabilites, which I agree, I'll be more cautious if buy another sound bar. I led t Was led to believe the Klipsch is one of the better bars. [ G MARTIN  Dec 04, 2017 ]
    I am fairly confident that it doesn't have this capability. [ Josh  Oct 26, 2017 ]
    Only if it streams over Bluetooth. Sonos I believe only streams over Wi-Fi. [ Felix  Sep 26, 2017 ]

    Actually, you don't want to connect a powered soundbar to a theater receiver. That will stop the soundbar from getting the audio to decode using its processor so that you can get the benefit of things like the voice enhancement, and more. HTH!

    True 2way [ Greg  Apr 11, 2017 ]
    2 tweeters and 4 middes and the wireless powered sub.....im extremely pleased with the whole set up. Sound is unbelievable [ Lance  Apr 10, 2017 ]
    It has four 3-inch woofers and two 3/4-inch tweeters. So no 2-way components. [ Denver  Apr 09, 2017 ]
    I ordered one about a year ago. One slightly damaged corner on the subwoofer cabinet. Very, very minor. Basically not even noticeable. [ Josh  Oct 26, 2017 ]
    I didn't order scratch and dent. I just wanted a really good sound bar and I got it [ Greg  Jan 09, 2017 ]
    Can't speak for the LG TV. I have a Vizio(hoping to soon upgrade to an LG OLED set) and programmed my universal remote to operate the volume of the TV and Klipsch soundbar simultaneously. Worked great. I assume the same thing would work with an LG. I ended up turning the TV speakers off because I didn't like the weird echo effect you get when using the Soundbar with TV speakers on. I then discovered you don't need the TV set's speakers with this Soundbar. It is very impressive for its size. Especially with the sub turned up. [ Denver  Jan 06, 2017 ]
    It'll work with a cable remote.. But sometimes the cable remote while adjusting the volume will activate the soundbar pairing option. [ Felix  Jan 06, 2017 ]
    THis sound bar is amazing sound is incredible. The sound bar has remote learning. I use my Direct TV remote to turn up and down the volume on the Klipsch sound bar works very very well. I do love the Bluetooth feature as well. [ Lance  Jan 06, 2017 ]
    HI, Matt my first soundbar is the klipsch because of their quality sound. I knew you could never go wrong with the klipsch. The sound is awesome especially the subwoofer buy it you'll love it. Also I have mine hooked up optically, Mark [ Mark  Jan 06, 2017 ]
    Yes. It will pair up with any IR remote [ Richard  Jan 06, 2017 ]
    I'm sure you could but would contact Klipsch. [ Lance  Apr 10, 2017 ]
    I do not know! [ FATHI  Oct 05, 2016 ]
    No it has a knob on the sub [ Martin  Apr 04, 2016 ]
    NO,not to my knowledge, but the R-20B sounds great [ JAMES  Mar 29, 2016 ]
    No. The sub levels have to be adjusted on the sub itself. [ Matthew  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    No. It just controls the volume of the bar. The sub has a manual knob for volume control. [ Nikolai  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    No. [ FATHI  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    No, it cannot. You set the level of bass on the subwoofer, then the only volume control is for the bar and sub together. [ Jake  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    The volume control turns both the sub and soundbar volume simultaneously. There is a seperate know on the sub to control how much bass. [ Richard  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    no....sub has a dial that u turn to control how loud u want it [ Tony  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    The subwoofer is wireless, it just needs its own power source/outlet. [ Jake  Nov 09, 2015 ]
    No, there are no speaker outputs on the sound bar. Only audio in. [ Richard  Nov 08, 2015 ]
    I do not use rear speakers and I really do not know the right answer, sorry. [ FATHI  Nov 08, 2015 ]
    For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your home. [ Greg  Oct 13, 2014 ]  Staff
