BEST BUDGET 5.1 HOME THEATER SPEAKERS – Klipsch Reference Theater Pack Review

What the WHAT?! This 5.1 theater speaker set packs a PUNCH, along with an insane price point! And this ain’t some no-name brand either…it’s from KLIPSCH! So you know it’s quality. I review the Reference Theater Pack and give you a few pointers along the way. Check it out!

*CORRECTION: I made the mistake of circling the wire terminals and called them the “keyhole mounts” on both the satellite and center speakers. D’OH! My bad. The keyhole mount holes are actually in the exact spot as the ¼ ” threaded insert. Sorry for any confusion!

    How durable is the sub? I set it to 50 percent on the gain and it is insane how boomy it is, almost makes me worry about blowing it out during a big explosion haha

    Your graphics are wrong, bro. The keyhole mounts and the threaded mounts are the same spot, and you're circling the speaker wire slots saying they're keyhole mounts.

    Does anyone have a problem with the sub ? When it’s doing its thing i can hear way too much air coming out from the bottom, if that makes any sense?

    Hello, thank you for the review and information. I've had an Onkly DTR 5.5 receiver only ever connected to my dated Bose AM5 which still sound incredible. But time has come to replace with a 5.1 set of speakers. I found this set and made a purchase via Amazon (expected delivery this week) since Costco was out of stock. The set should be more than sufficient to improve what we had previously in our family room, really looking forward to hearing it all. Once again, thank you … very helpful info, well done!

    It has consistently been $299 at Adoroma with free 2 day shipping. Extremely satisfied. Also what crossover frequency on the sub do you recommend?

    OK, I need help then. I have this htip, a Denon avr s660h, and an LG TV with both optical and ARC. I cannot for the life of me, get it to sound decent. I did the auto setup with the mic, and it still sounds like garbage. Please help!

    I got this pack, and a refurbished Yamaha tsr-700 receiver as a Black Friday bundle from Newegg. 4 year warranty, everything came in just shy of $800 after tax. All I have to do is put it together lol.
