I have a Klipsch 5.1 home theater system elsewhere in the house so am (happily) familiar with Klipsch.
I love the depth of my AR's and did also from the Advents. So to do I the RB-41's. I can not speak more highly of them and their ability to project full sound from such a small speaker. The base is full while the high end is clear and crisp. They seem to be able to handle higher volume without being overwhelmed (I do reduce the base level when doing so as the smaller "woofer/mid-range" and the rear port can get "poppy" on certain music like full base rock). I can highly recommend these speakers for my type of use, or in a small room and smaller system, or as right/left surround speakers, or as rear channel. I have them on a book shelf, "hidden" amongst my library and typically play them at low levels (when I want to crank it up I turn them off and power up the AR's). I experimented with different brand small bookshelf speakers but they were either too "boomy" or did not have any presence for my usage. I had a pair of Klipsch Icon's that were too bass heavy that I now use as my surround speakers in my home theater set up.
The construction is solid. I'm not a fan of the ash black and would prefer a wood veneer option but... I'm sorry to see these models are made in China instead of Arkansas and that Klipsch has apparently been bought out (it was reassuringly fun to have a product from Arkansas and know that someone actually labored over the speaker, personally inspected and signed the slip of their doing so but I assume at this cost level that is no longer feasible). Still very well made.
I highly recommend these speaker to anyone who is looking for a quality small bookshelf speaker to use in varied situations at what I think is a reasonable price for this great product.
I had an Onkyo 6300 HTIB system with the intention of upgrading my speakers, when the receiver decided to die on me. I ended up getting rid of it and getting a Denon 1911 receiver. Once the receiver was hooked up I decided to go ahead and upgrade the speakers as well. I kept the onkyo subwoofer and after much research decided to go with the Klipsch Reference 41 II series. It was kind of a shot in the dark because I couldn't find any reviews on them and no stores in my area carried them. I know klipsch is a good brand but I was a litle worried when I would read reviews that would say the sound can be too bright and may cause ear fatigue. That is not the case with these speakers! They are super clear, great highs, great mids, you hear every detail. When watching movies the voices are never drowned out by the music or thundering sound effects. Its a perfect balance. When listening to music you feel like you are front and center live, you can hear every note the horns are playing with no distortion, just great clarity.
I highly recommend these speakers. My living room is 19 x 15 and they fill it nicely.
