Bottom Line:   
If you read negative reviews on KSF 10.5's , or Klipsch speakers in general, the reviewer does not know what they are talking about.I sold Audio over 30 years and Klipsch over 20. If you have a harsh sounding (cheap) amp these speakers will highlite that harshness. When ever you are buying speakers you need to know that a pair of speakers will sound different with each amplifier you play them with. These speakers sound best when matched with a "warm sounding" amp, especially tube amps. They are very efficient which means they don't require a lot of "clean" power. i.e.-if you have a regular series Sony amp they will sound harsh, with a Sony ES amp they sound great.(same with regular Pioneer vs Pioneer Elite) Tube amps typically require speakers at least 92 db efficient ( Klipsch speakers are at least 94 db) so these are great, reasonably priced speakers for those amps. Bottom line: Are these the best sounding speaker ever-No but they have a place and with a properly matched amplifier they can sound very good to great depending on your music taste.If you have a cheap amp you may not enjoy any speakers in the Klipsch line, try something else, please. It's not fair, or accurate, to trash a speaker (manufacturer) just because of the lack of quality of the equipment you use to play them with!

Bottom Line:   
I picked a pair of these up at a thrift shop. At first I was totally unimpressed. Very bright and tough to listen to for long periods of time; fatiguing.

Or so I thought. Then I hooked them up to a higher end tube amp. Wow. What a transformation. They sound great with the change in equipment. Of course everything sounds 'better' with that amp, but I think this model Klipsch showed the biggest gain.

The moral is, these speakers seem to be very sensitive to the equipment in use. The improvement was so great I've left them hooked up.

(Three Stars is "Good")
