While the Klipsch Reference Wireless system is not inexpensive, it sure solves a lot of problems for many people. If wiring is impossible in your space and you’ve been dying to get the full surround sound experience, it will be akin to finding water on a desert island. We like the fact you can start small and grow with it over time. Plus the fact that it is software-based should allow for some pretty cool updates over time.

The bookshelf pair is based on the R-51M, which is a two-way mid-sized bookshelf speaker.
The wireless model adds a “W” to the model name and is the RW-51M. These use the famous Klipsch Tractrix horn coupled with their 5 ¼” spun-copper IMG Woofer. This model, in the nonpowered version, has been a best seller that gives you a ton of performance for the money. It stands about 13” tall, by 7” wide, by 8 ½” deep.

The center channel is derived from their R34C center channel.
R34C is one of the best value center channels on the market. It uses the same tweeter as the R-51M for perfect matching, coupled with 4 of their 3 ½” spun-copper IMG woofers. It has front-firing Tractrix bass ports, enabling it to be put right up against a rear wall. It’s just slightly over 5” tall, 26” wide, and 6” deep.

For a great bass foundation, Klipsch picked their R-100SW sub.
Again, this is a super popular model in the Reference series with its 10” spun-copper IMG woofer that provides pretty amazing deep bass for its modest size of what is roughly about a 14” cube.

    can you add an additional sub woofer to this system? i like that it can do 7.1 but can you have two subs linked (on the same channel maybe?)

    Can you explain the PC setup please?
    Does the PC need to be always connected to the system or is this just a setup thing?

    in 2021, wiring speakers for a home theater is just down right silly! I want this set up sooooo bad. I would pull the trigger TODAY if I could use my record player, tv, and Play Station as a source. its great how much flexibility the wireless tech adds, but immediately its completely useless because of the hyper specific input options 🙁 🙁 🙁

    Is the wireless system any better than the conventional AC/receiver set up?

    Cant it just connect via arc and use my firestick as my main media center? Why does it have to be limited in terms of application? I can understand klipsch’s move in these, they just cut the marketability of their products.

    I have multiple sources I'd like to hook up to the Klipsh speaker system. Mainly the PS4, XBOX, Switch and a Turntable… how would I do that? Can any receiver interface and utilize the Klipsh wireless speaker system?

    Can anyone tell me, if you are using an Xbox One X to connect to a Samsung Q90T, will the WISA surround sound with the Klipsch speakers still work, when I'm NOT using the Xbox? For example let's say I'm watching regular cable TV (Xfinity/comcast) and not using the Xbox, will the television still play the audio through the WISA speakers?

    There are still very few videos/reviews about Klipsch Reference Wireless setups online. Nice job with this video though; it was very informative. I’m considering investing in this system, but am concerned with it being future proof or not. Do we know if LG will ever update their Wisa configuration options to support other setups? Like a 5.1.2 atmos/dtsx setup? I would hate to be locked into a 5.1 setup without the option to expand as new products come out. Thanks for your time!

    Too many things can go wrong here and you are left with $3k worth of unplayable speakers. If WISA fails you are screwed. The fact that they only work with Xbox and lg is concerning. If you are not techie enough to hook speakers how are you using your pc as a home theater. If the speakers could use Bluetooth or WiFi as an additional option I’d say maybe. But one would be better if paying for installation services or using a high quality sound bar. At least then u have normal speakers with no compatibility issues.

    Do all of the wireless speakers need to be plugged in to an outlet? In your presentation it shows the speakers next to an outlet but not plugged in?

    Appreciate the detailed review, and while I know this system has its place for some people, most can hire a professional to install speaker surrounds/ceiling speakers for all of these requirements… especially for unfortunate saps like me with a PS4, no laptop and a Samsung TV. I'll be patient and wait for wireless Atmos 7.1

    I had the old wireless reference speakers from klipsch (using the Klipsch RP-HUB1 HD Control Center ). Can I use the new axiim link HD to work with my old wireless reference speakers?
