As I understand it these are discontinued, however, $400 for a decent set of floor standing Klipsch speakers is a pretty good deal.

I'm not an audiophile by any means, would this be a viable option for a first time home theater setup? or is there a more cost-effective option that I can go for that won't set me back as much.

There are always "cheaper" options. Having said that, there are also always more expensive options. Are you looking for movie and show viewing? Music? 2.1? 3.1? 5.1? 7.2? And what's your budget?

The problem with getting "entry" level is that you will most likely want to replace them once you become familiar with higher end speakers. I went from a Panasonic HTiB setup to Frankensteined home theater setup, to a Klipsch setup in the manner of a few years. (And I'm looking to upgrade my standing speakers again.) Also, make sure you keep the boxes for your speakers so you can sell them when you upgrade! Or for when you move.

Long story short, these will be a good start, but if you plan to watch movies or shows you'll also want a center channel. Probably a sub woofer too, but listen to the standing speakers first because they very well might hit low enough for you. Lastly, a 5.1 (minimum) receiver. Luckily, the receiver will probably be the last thing you replace/upgrade. (I'm only on my third in about 10-12 years.)

(Side note, the F-200s are $400 a pop on Amazon right now. So $500 for a pair of F-300s should be a no-brainer, if you're in the market. I got my RF-82iis for under $500 for the pair... so it is possible to find better deals. They're just rare.)

Add them to your cart, go to your cart, then click on "Proceed to check out". They show $399 for me.

Klipsch is a very good mid-level speaker. Yes there are better options, but at 2-3(or more) times the price. There are also cheaper options that may work for you. I will say they play music better than movies but they work for me and my 5.1 system. Btw, I'm by no means an audio epxert, but I have owned Klipsch speakers since my first quintet system and have been very happy. Currently have RF82ii as fronts, quintet surrounds, Klipsch center(can't remember model), and an RS-12w sub. I'm probably going to replace my quintets with in-ceiling speakers soon.

There are a plethora of options that will provide you with an exceptional HT experience...

Always ask yourself:

(1) What is your desired configuration? (2.1, 3.1, 5.1 etc...)

(2) What is your budget?

(3) What do you want to hear? (Detail, articulation, bass/midrange/treble, imaging/soundstage)

(4) Do you have an upgrade path?


I'm an avid HT/Sound purist and have been in the game a while and I've barely scratched the surface.

For $400 a pair...these towers are a good price.

This brand is known for producing harsh treble via their horn/sound signature.

Sony core series, Pioneer Andrew Jones line are all decent entry level speakers.

I've owned Energy Veritas line, B&W Nautilus line, RBH Impression series, Pioneer Andrew Jones line and currently rock JBL 590 and 530s.

Well truth be told there really are no "audiophile" or you can look at it like yes everyone is to themselves.

Viable option for a first time home theater setup is a very broad question. For home theater you need these, a center, two surround speakers and a sub. For movies two most critical would be center and sub, in that order. The two fronts are very close behind.

You are going to get many opinions are far as whether these are "cost-effective" vs how they sound. When it comes to how they sound to you only you can determine how good or bad these sound and are they worth it to you(cost effective).

If you have not listened to Klipsch before I would highly suggest listening to them because they are an acquired taste and not for everyone.

I would suggest going out and listening to as many speakers as you can and find the ones you really like. You can then go after those, that will give you the best results IMO.

To be fair, the RP line is less harsh than the lower lines. Having said that, it is still a bit "bright".
