Bottom Line:   
Love these! Like other high quality loudspeakers of value, the 100db+ sensitivity results in lower distortion and lower power requirements. Compare for yourself. Every 3db increase in sensitivity cuts a speaker's power requirement in half. That implies that driving 100db speakers with 40 watts (e.g., KLF 20) is like driving 91db speakers with 320 watts (e.g., Energy 8). You can easily hear the quality in the KLF 20's. belkan

Bottom Line:   
Picked this pair of speakers up along with a Polkaudio 200W subwoofer and a nice Yamaha (can't remember the model #) reciever for (don't hate me!) $600.00!! All of it in mint condition. I'd been using a pair of 6.5" Alesis MK2 studio monitors for my home studio and decided to see how the KLF 20's would sound in their place. This was 3 months ago and the KLF 20's are still there and the Alesis's have long since been sold. These speakers sound utterly amazing! The frequency responce is about as flat as I've ever heard, rivaling even my bandmate's pair of $1500.00 M Audio DSM2's! About the only complaint I have is their weight. They seem like they weigh a freakin' TON! Almost as much as my Randall Warhead 4X12 speaker cabinets! Anyway, Can't say enough about these speakers! They REALLY rock!!

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are great overall speakers, I have been shopping around for years to find a pair of these in pristine condition. They are beautiful, and are way ahead of their time. You will not be able to find a pair of speakers within this price range that will even be able to touch these. These speakers pound on home theater, and are very accurate when listening to music.

Bottom line: This is one of the finest speakers you can buy.

There are SO MANY SUBJECTIVE FACTORS that are reflected in many of the reviews posted here. Issues such as cable, bi-amping, model of receiver, capacitors used in the crossover circuitry, and phase of the moon are subtleties that you may or may not hear.

My advice: Listen to this speaker, listen to a dozen others and then come back and listen again. Klipsch makes speakers with horns. Horns push the sound up front. You may not like this or you may love it just like the many ten's of others that have reported here.

My opinion is that it is still the finest speaker for music in this price range. I really haven't listened to speakers costing thousands more so I can't make a fair comparison there. But, I have been listening to speakers for 30+ years and love this sound.

The type of room you have and the placement of the speakers will make way more difference in the sound than your wire, receiver, capacitors, CD player brand, bi-amping and moon phase combined. Opposite surfaces should be different, ie: if the ceiling is reflective (smooth and hard) you need a soft floor surface (carpet). Some walls should have absorbing qualities. There needs to be sound absorbing material in your listening room (soft furniture, draperies) or your sound will be wacked, I promise!

This review is as much of a testimony to the art and science of the Klipsch philosophy as it is to this particular speaker. And no, I don't work for them!

Klipsch speakers have more 'presence' than any other speaker I have ever heard, period. So, if you can't find the KLF-20, listen to the other models - but only during a full moon (he,he).

Klipsch KLF-20 Woofer Crackle

One of the woofers on my right speaker crackles when it hits a certain frequency. At other frequencies it doesn't do this, so at first I thought it was just a random occurrence. I've isolated the sound to the speaker, so it's definitely not coming from anything else. Why does it do this, and is t ... Read More »
