Bottom Line:   
This speaker really is a throwback to the design genius of the great Henry Kloss, co-founder of the original KLH Company. It's a solid value if you want an inexpensive speaker which not only has impressive bass, midrange and high end but also sounds natural. If you're into heavy bass you can have it, if you're into well balanced sound, it'll get it.
In 1995 I paid $200 for the pair and also have Infinity towers and Polk towers and this $200/pair of KLH speakers performs every bit as well as $1000 a pair speakers.
If you can get a pair...get them. Even if you pay $200 for a used pair, so long as they work, it's a good buy.

Bottom Line:   
I have the 915B speakers, which I understand to have the same drivers as the 9154 but a sealed (rather than ported) enclosure. I paid $40/pair used. The 915B speakers have unbelievably good sound, even compared to my well-beloved, 3-way, Design Acoustics PS-10a speakers, which boast 45Hz lows. I usually listen to classical music at realistic volumes (3-15 watts) through a vintage 150-w/ch Kenwood KC-207/KA-207 amplifier. The 15" woofer on the 915B is good down to 20Hz (and probably lower), and it really brings out the low resonances in the tuba and classical guitar that are simply lacking in even a good 10" woofer. My first sound test, listening to Mozart's Magic Flute Overture as rendered by the 5-piece English Brass Ensemble, literally brought tears to my eyes. It was the difference between sitting in the back of the church (which is excellent in itself) versus sitting up front with the musicians. LIttle equalization is needed across all frequencies. I'm delighted with these speakers!

CON: Size. Also, the driver layout on both speakers is identical. While Imaging could be a problem, I didn't notice any.

Bottom Line:   
i got this KLH loudspeaker set in 1993 when in 8th grade- i jammed with it over drumset noise for 15 years microphoned into it- disc jockeyed with it- (and got paid for it!!!) and played neil pert drum solos at near max stereo volume... they keep ticking- getting older but still look fine- woofers getting old- i damaged one with a screw driver- or something- but they still pump. 300 watts max 6 ohms 315 model or older version.... rocks!!!!!!! less than $100 at walmart - i think for the two it was 200.
reeeeeeaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllly sounds good with thx onkyo - onkyo thx select system. i have a jl audio sub to a cerwin vega amp - yamaha ns-6 set up too to above them- and with the two subs i am fine- getting a 15 inch sub too- shakin.500watts. watching starwars if only klh lrealized how powerful these were- they would release more- and put nicer parts- ie kevlar. or reinforced stronger magnets sounds great for price range. excellent.

Bottom Line:   
I have the 915B. Same drivers as the 9154, except this a 15 inch 4 way sealed black enclosure. I believe the 9154 is bass reflex. I listened to several speakers: Cerwin Vega, JBL, Bose in the $300 to $1000 range and none had the same bass impact as the 915B. If you like rock or rap, or are looking for speaker that thump, without a subwoofer, pick these babies up. I love 'em to death.

Bottom Line:   
I don't think you can go wrong with these speakers. They are loud, clear, and exceptional performers, especially in comparison to other brands at 3 to 4 times the price. I am convinced that KLH is the unsung hero of speakers.
