Normally you would think that speakers using those large and heavy magnets promise a lot of power. But as far as Klipsch is concerned, it is all about looking more than that. Even with lightweight speakers, quality audio can still be solicited as shown from their latest model, the Klipsch HD Theater 500 5.1.
Klipsch has managed to squeeze a whole lot of sound into relatively small satellites. For those cooped up in small apartments or those who simply need to wall mount every one of their speakers (save for the sub, obviously), the HD Theater 500 is hard to ignore. The lightweight nature makes these perfect for hanging on even thin walls, and the standard red / black “clip” inputs means that they’ll play nice with every ole AV receiver on the market.
The subwoofer is a down-firing, 100-watt beast (8-inch driver) which accepts both RCA (left / right) and line-level inputs. There’s a master volume and crossover knob, and it can be set to always off, always on and auto-detect on. The speakers are pretty good looking, though the glossy black finish does mean that fingerprints will hang around after touching.
