I disagree love the look and theg sound incredible.I agree with premise of “function over form” but holy mother that is one ugly set of speakers, they either need to give their design people a raise or fire them (my money is on the latter)!
There is simply no way I’d want those in my front room, I’m pretty sure my other half would sooner have white dog poo sitting on the carpet than have those things disgrace our lounge (for a bit of a giggle I sent her some pics and said I was considering these and her response was literally a three letter acronym “WTF”)
Glad you like ‘em, they’d have to sound incredible as they have the aesthetics of a barge, more than happy to agree to disagreeI disagree love the look and theg sound incredible.
Gloss black should be available too! And you can choose the center channel freely, there is larger version of 404C with 5,25" drivers and also matching one with same dual 6,5" drivers, odd move from Klipsch to send this one.This looks like the kind of system were you would buy the satellites as separates then get your own sub. That centre channel issue is also a little concerning for something costing this much.
I didn't mean that it was a bad sub but I think the key line for me was:SPL-120 sub was just picked price class reference after listening test at DE site (Area DVD) which had likes of XTZ 10.17 etc, another DE site praised also the bass quality and price/performance. It does cost less in Europe and US as they are sold in BestBuy stores for stupid low prices. 12" and 15" models have been tested/measured fine and cause of that been quite popular for a speaker manufacturer subs. Couple big names in the industry (subwoofers) have praised them also after hearing/testing them. Sadly in UK the pricing sucks for Klipsch and there is definitely better models for the money (650£), shame Steve couldn´t test the more popular SPL-150 (15") model which punches hard!
Still a very nice system with a decent sub.However, I did feel that the sub, while responsive and controlled, did lack a bit when mining the really low frequencies. The SPL-120 is a good sub, but there are certainly better choices available.
Np! If one wants "matching" system then can pick the SPL-150 for 200£ extra. Much better value/performance wise and can put more pressure to ID brands. But there is always something better behind the corner..I didn't mean that it was a bad sub but I think the key line for me was:

In-room response is lower typically so this will have some output in the 20hz range still, but if looking very deep bass with lot´s of output then SVS is always very strong option which you know as owner.Looks great but the sub can only do 24 Hz.
Wish it did infrasonics (17Hz and above). Otherwise another solid looking kit from Klipsch.
My home cinema is fairly narrow, so the RP-6000Fs didn't have a huge amount of space. I probably had about a foot at the rear of each speaker and about 18 inches where the side walls were. So I don't think these speakers need lots of space to sound great. As far as centre speakers go, the RP-600C probably would make a better choice because it has exactly the same drivers.@Steve Withers
Would you suggest that the RP-600F need lots of space around them ? I appreciate the rear port would need some but could you give some sort of idea how much space behind and to the sides please ?
And would the RP-600C be a better match for the centre channel, providing it physically fits of course.
