    I have owned this 5.1 speaker system for 2 weeks. I have them connected to a Denon AVR-790 receiver. I am thrilled with the results - even though I have an unconventional setup. The living room and kitchen are conected as one 10 x 20 foot room - with a cathedral ceiling. Yikes!

    This is my first surround sound system, and suffice to say, I was overwhelmed with the many 5.1 choices between the HTIB (Home theater in a box) and all the individual receivers with separate speaker systems. However, I'm not a newbie to great sound. I could join the AARP if I wanted to!
    Anyways, I finally pulled the trigger and purchased the Klipsch 500 after many months of research online and hearing them at my local electronics warehouse store. The store gave me an offer I couldn't refuse.

    My requirements were that I needed smaller speakers for the decor and the lack of space. The Klipsch 500 fit the bill. Moreover, the 8 inch powered subwoofer is more than enough ooomph for TV, music, and movies. A nice thunder!

    My center speaker rests on the TV stand in front of the LCD TV on the Klipsch supplied rubber mat to hold it in place. It's inconspicuous and does the job of keeping the center speaker stationary. I purchased a couple of inexpensive speaker stands for the 2 front speakers.
    I mounted the 2 rear speakers "in the "kitchen" on the opposite wall that the TV is on. I appreciate that the satellite speakers all come with plastic adjustable wall mounts that you can position toward your ears. I needed the mounts to position the rears horizontally at 8 feet above the floor pointing toward the chairs. I ran my rear speaker wires under the floor in the crawl space to hide them. That helps!

    I purchased these Klipsch HD 500s as a package deal with a Yamaha RX-V567BL receiver for my parents. I had tested them out along with some other comparable speakers at a local home audio store. They sounded awesome in the store, but sound even more amazing now that I have them setup and dialed in for their living room. They have amazing clarity and definition, yet still have a very full sound to them. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for surround sound speakers under $1000. They come with wall mount speaker brackets, but I opted to install them on some generic Atlantic speaker stands I picked up. They are pretty easy to install for those that are comfortable with audio equipment. My best recommendation for those looking for a surround sound package is to go to a store and listen to the different options. Just because speakers are expensive doesn't make them good. And just because someone tells you they are awesome speakers, doesn't mean you should take their word for it. There is always some subjectivity in audio equipment. What one person thinks sounds good, another person may hate. I recommend, though, that you take a listen to these as a great option for your surround sound system.

    Pros - Bought these speakers from TigerDirect in Jan 2010 bundled with Onkyo TX-SR507 7.2 Channel surround. I was initially disappointed looking at the size of the 4 speakers, but when I tuned the reciever and increased base loudness, it was awesome. These speakers give out quite a clear definition for their size. The center speaker is extremely crisp and clear. The Onkyo works well with it....I can hear across frequencies and all musical instruments pop out real clear (Using the Plz Logix II on the Onkyo). Movies are just awesome and my PS3 games sound just amazing!! I believe that it is a good system for a medium sized room (Mine is about 20 X 20). I am not an audiophile, but I think that I can compare the setup to a decent BOSE system. The sub is just awesome. I had accidently put it too loud the first day, and a ceiling lamp from the kitchen crashed to the floor (I am sure that the glass fixture was on the edge, but it hadnt moved for 2 years!) I have hardwood floors, so the subwoofer effect is even better than on carpet.

    Cons - The speaker fixtures were cheap and would not allow the speakers to turn beyond a specific angle. I had to angle the speakers for the setup in my room, but the base allows only about 45 degrees swivel. The plastic connectors at the back are cheap looking and dont fit 12 gage wires too well.

    Overall - Great speakers for a good mid-budget HT system. Its essential to pair them up to a good reciever and use good gage wires for the best performance.

    Excellent set of speakers. I previously had a mix of Bose and Polk speakers. I have a medium sized living room and these perfectly matched Klipsch speakers just simply sound a whole lot better. The crispness of the speakers bring out detail I had never heard before. The speakers are small and blend in well with my entertainment center. I would definitely buy these speakers again.

    I got this speaker system to complement a 46 inch LED LCD TV in my smallish front living room. I have a DirecTV HD DVR satellite receiver and a Samsung Blue Ray player that I have connected to the Denon AVR-791 receiver - all HMDI 1.4 connections, and use the single HMDI output to connect to the TV set. I am using a Denon AVR-791 receiver to connect it all together and to drive the Klipsch HD 500 compact 5.1 home theater speaker system for the audio portion of my set-up. All of the HMDI handshakes work with no problems, and the whole set up was very easy to install/set up. Got the whole thing going within an hour, and that includes stringing the speaker wire, cutting and trimming the wire and installing the speakers. The sounds the Denon set produce through the Klipsch HD 500 speakers are outstanding. Good separation for the individual channels. The Klipsch HD 500 speaker set is a mini set and the subwoofer is not large - an 8 inch powered subwoofer - so the sounds the system produces are not house rattling. But... in the room that I have them set up in, this system fits the bill in an excellent manner. Dialog is crisp and clear, there is quite sufficient bass to support movie sound tracks, and the surround sound stage is quite good. (The room is about 20 by 14 feet...). I have a setup in my basement that uses an older Denon AVR-3300 and a much larger Klipsch speaker system, which I liked well enough to invest in another Denon receiver and Klipsch speaker pairing. The Klipsch HD 500 speakers are incredibly small to produce the sound stage that they do - they work especially well on dialog; rendering crisp and clear dialog even when over quite distinct sound effects that many movies utilize.Read more ›
