Have a HTIB and want more and better sound?
I purchased a Samsung HT-BD1250 home theater in a box. It came with 3 ohm speakers that weighed mere ounces. I set it up and listened to music via streaming pandora and movies on dvd and via streaming netflix. Only on movies did the sound really approach the listening level I wanted. The subwoofer that shipped with the Samsung system was ok, but the center and satellite speakers left me wanting more. The midrange and high end sounds were lacking. I could hear everything, but even on movies I felt the speakers weren't adequate. I had to crank the volume to hear the details and this was especially true when listening to music.
So I headed over to BestBuy and convinced the sales guy to let me hook his display Quintet III speakers to the Samsung HTBD1250 HTIB system he had on display. I wanted to try them out because the Samsung spec said 3 ohms and the Klipsch spec said 8 ohms. I had my doubts about whether the speakers would sound better. Wow. What a difference. Right there in the store, I switched back and forth between the stock speakers and the Klipsch and I was amazed! I snapped up the Quintet III speakers and headed home. These speakers list for $549. A typical ebay closing bid can be quite a bit less.
What you get.
The Quintet III system consists of 5 speakers. There are 4 satellite speakers, each with a 3.5 inch woofer and a .75 inch horn tweeter. There is a center channel speaker with 2 3.5 inch woofers and a .75 inch horn tweeter. These are heavy speakers. The satellites weigh 3.5 pounds each and the center weighs 5.5 pounds. These are about 4 times heavier than the plastic speakers that come with most HTIB systems! The satellites come with swivel feet that double as wall mount brackets. All 5 speakers come with binding posts instead of those cheap spring clips that come with a lot of speakers nowadays. Excellent build quality is evident in these speakers.
Once I swapped out the lightweight Samsung speakers for the Klipsch Quintet III speakers, I was delighted with the sound. I had turned down the Samsung subwoofer 3db (using on screen menus in the HTIB system) so it wouldn't overpower the wimpy little Samsung satellite and center speakers. Not any more! Now I can boost the sub 3db with the Klipsch Quintet speakers! They are heavier than the Samsung speakers and produce a lot more sound per watt so there is nothing lost for going from 3 ohms (Samsung) to 8 ohms (Klipsch). The biggest boost was the high end. The Klipsch horn tweeters do a fine job of reproducing cymbals and other sounds that the Samsung speakers struggled to emit even with the volume cranked above halfway. Our room is 13 feet by 20 feet with an adjoining 17 foot by 11 foot room. The entire space is filled with sound with the Klipsch speakers powered by the Samsung HTIB system.
If you are thinking about a HTIB system and want other speaker options, consider the Klipsch Quintet III. They sound great and you can play your system at a lower volume setting but get more sound in your room. If you are dealing with a small to medium sized room these speakers are ideal. If you are dealing with a large to huge room, you may want to consider something larger. For most home theater in a box "upgrade" applications, these speakers offer the best bang for the buck. I was already happy with my Samsung HTIB system but adding Klipsch Quintet III speakers made me much happier.
I love these speakers. The sound is fantastic; crisp and clean. You can not go wrong with a Klipsch product.
This system produces clear and bright music and also on movies. It brings more than I expected and recomends it to anyone that its starting in the home theater or just wants something small for a thigh area,
I chose these speakers after comparing them with other sets and the cost/benefit factor. These were chosen because of the many good reviews by other purchasers, and they fit within my budget. They were a good choice as they sound great. I connected them to an ONKYO TX-SR608 R Receiver. Also connected is a wall shaking JBL SUB12 powered subwoofer.
