Reference Theater Pack

We've taken the premium materials and acoustic technology of our revered Reference series and designed a beautiful 5.1 surround sound system to pair with your favorite AV receiver. Complete with a wireless subwoofer, the Reference Theater Pack brings the Klipsch cinematic sound into your home with an incredibly minimal footprint.

Key Features

Flexible System Placement
Wireless High Fidelity Subwoofer
Cinematic Acoustics
Spun Copper IMG Woofers
Linear Travel Suspension Horn-Loaded Tweeters

Cinematic Performance
The Reference Theater Pack delivers superior acoustic performance by leveraging Injection Molded Graphite (IMG) woofers. These exceptionally lightweight cones are extremely rigid – providing remarkable low frequency response, with minimal cone breakup and distortion. A Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) tweeter minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters have been a hallmark of our Reference series product lines, making it a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.

Horn-Loaded Power
Our exclusive Tractrix® Horn Technology and aluminum tweeters deliver the most impressive high-end response and greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics. This creates the cleanest, most natural sound possible.

WIRELESS, ROBUST BASS
The down-firing wireless subwoofer is designed to deliver room-filling low frequencies without requiring too much floorspace. The 2.4GHz connectivity allows for premium, CD-quality sound anywhere in the room. Simply connect the compact, pre-paired transmitter to the subwoofer or LFE out on your receiver and place the subwoofer where it sounds and fits best in your room. The built-in all-digital subwoofer amplifier delivers ample power with high efficiency and true-to-source accuracy.

Flexible System Placement
To complement the easy placement of the wireless subwoofer, each satellite speaker has a keyhole mount and a ¼" x 20 threaded insert (the center channel has dual keyhole / inserts) for maximum mounting flexibility.

So you need an existing receiver to run this. IMO this isn't much of a deal. The speakers look very small. I'm also skeptical of the wireless subwoofer - seems like that would introduce some delay. Perhaps not enough to be noticeable.

Edit: I googled around and found almost nothing but 5 star reviews everywhere.. Everyone glowing about this set. The wording of some of these reviews was a bit..off. "Hook up a good Surround Sound Processor" - what?? Fakespot gives the Amazon listing a C.

I am guessing that you don't quite understand "surround sound". You need a receiver/stereo to decode the audio signal to properly route the correct signal to the correct speaker. Otherwise you have 5 speakers that are going to play the same thing and a subwoofer for low frequencies. Great speakers don't need to be huge to fill a room with great sound.

All that proves is that fakespot isn't always accurate. Klipsch isn't some new company that sells mostly on amazon and needs to pay for 5 star reviews. They have been around since 1946 and are well known for quality speakers.

My point is the reviews look fake. No one calls it a "surround sound processor" - its a receiver. You don't find overwhelming 5 star reviews for a 1k set of speakers, with no way to drive them included, suspicious?

Your condescending guess is incorrect, by the way.

Obviously this isn't a deal for you. But I don't understand your logic. Something is suspicious because of its price and overwhelmingly positive reviews? Sometimes you do get what you pay for.

It's quite normal to buy speakers with no receiver or amp. The whole soundbar thing is relatively new. As for surround sound processor, maybe it's someone from another country, and that's what they call it there. But there is such a thing...

I own the generation before this. It will sound great for small speakers. It will not sound great if you're use to quality full size speakers with 4-5" woofers. Doesn't sound as "full" in the mid-range. It will NOT come with a receiver unless the ad specifically says it does. This is simply a set of speakers.

That odd sounding "review" may be a bot or a shill or just someone who does not write English very well. Read more reviews and get a consensus opinion. I don't think any other speaker company gets reviewed as much as Klipsch.

Not sure what your confusion is. It's a set of home theater speakers. Sets like this (5.1, smaller size, wireless sub, no receiver) are pretty common. Lots of people want home theater surround sound without buying individual speakers or taking up a lot of room. This is a great deal for this particular set because it's less than half the MSRP.

I could use someone with expertise in home theater ... I'm looking into buying either the Onkyo TX-SR494 receiver or the Onkyo HT-S3910 home theater speaker and receiver package. Both are pretty much the same price. The receiver is 7.2 channel and the theater package is 5.1.

What I would prefer is to stay in the $175-340 range. I really would prefer a receiver in the $200 range.

I realize I'll have to buy speakers at a later date for the receiver OR I can have it all for $340.

I can't seem to find a receiver in the $250 or less range that's 5.1 and has Bluetooth wireless speaker setup.

Everything I find has Bluetooth for incoming; such as streaming from my phone, pc tablet etc to the receiver.

If anyone knows of a great quality receiver that is at least 5.1 surround less than $250 and will allow me to connect Bluetooth speakers to the receiver I would greatly appreciate it.

I know they have 5.1 sound bars you can buy that have a wireless sub that you can connect wired speakers to but I'm having no luck finding wireless for under $250
