Bottom Line:   
Incredible speaker......and very very rare. I got a great deal on this speaker and it will never leave it's home on top of my TV.
This speaker matches my Quartets perfectly and makes for a seamless front stage in my home theater system.

If you can find one of these beauties......you better grab it as they don't come around too often.

Bottom Line:   
This Is a faantastic speaker. I just wish the horn was mounted the other way. I was told this speaker was designed to be used for left right and center in a matched array so the horn was put horizontal when standing upright It is a good enough speaker to function as a main but I doubt too many are used this way. Anyway It still sounds great and matches my fortes very nicely.

Bottom Line:   
Ive had this center for about 6 months now, and needless to say its such an amazing speaker!
I gave up H/T for a while, i had 4 kg 5.5s, ksc-c1 center, and ksb-s1 rear!
I lost it all due to a new addition to the family, now im back with 4 cornwalls,Front and rear, academy center, rockford fosgate 2 10 inch subs, on a pyramid 2 channel amp bridged!
Just bought the harmam kardon AVR 120, ill post the reviews when it gets in there, so far, i couldnt go wrong on this unit!
It has such solid sound!
Other than the sub, i wouldnt own anything other than Klipsch, maybe SVS, when the time comes!

Bottom Line:   
I have two of these speakers and they have been given just about the most difficult test possible. I was unaware that they were meant to be used as a center channel, so they've been used as the main speakers for about eight years now. Try that with just about any other center channel and you will understand just how good these speakers are. They can be driven at high volumes playing music heavy in bass(mostly techno) for long periods of time without any trouble what so ever. Yet at the same time they are also detailed and accurate enough to be used for classical music. Voices are reproduced superbly, obviously a neccesity for a center channel, and explosions are handled with aplomb. You can throw just about anything at these speakers and they will just throw it right back at you and ask for more. Unfortunately they are no longer manufactured so it will be neccesary to find them used. Durability shouldn't be much of a problem either. Mine have been living in a house with four teenagers for their entire life, so that should give some idea of how durable they are. Speakers don't come much better than this, and for the price you will find nothing even similar.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this center channel through the want ads after trying the Bose routine. This is WITHOUT DOUBT - the BEST center channel on the market. The degree of realism in DVDS and music ( 5 channel stereo ) is unmatched in todays marketplace. If you can find one - get one - because you won't get mine !
