What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Klipsch RP-160M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • The size of the speaker is perfect for me as well. Not too small nor too big.
  • Great-sounding speakers in a fairly compact size. It is absolute clarity in audio.
  • I have them on a small entertainment center on each side of the amp and the size is perfect. They look great too.
  • I would describe these as "mini towers". They are very deep and heavy. They can be bi-amped and produce an excellent sound stage for not being a full-size tower.
  • As bookshelf speakers, they are a bit on the large size, but are a wonderful compromise between small bookshelf speakers, which rarely offer much bass, and overly large floor standing units.
Klipsch RP-600M Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Ebony)
  • They are bookshelf speakers. Perfect on my TV unit top. They are tall.
  • These are a pair of beautiful speakers with a solid, heavy build.
  • Very well made, and sound fantastic. And the size is only a delight.
  • I really like its compact size. They are powerful, deep and clear.
  • They look more expensive than they are. But these are heavy for their size.

What customers say about "Audio"
Klipsch RP-160M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • The reproduction of the high frequencies by the tweeter is excellent and accurate on my opinion.
  • They are big and sound big! The speakers also look great without the covers. They sound great with music and movies.
  • The bass coming from these is clean and clear and strong. All frequencies are clear.
  • Soundstaging is great and I am listening to all my favorites with a new appreciation because I hear so much I didn't know was in the music.
  • Mids are excellent as well. Especially When Listening to solid male vocals such as michael buble, or even female vocals like Adele, you feel like you're in a concert.
Klipsch RP-600M Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Ebony)
  • The midrange is beautiful and the low end is ample for a speaker of this size. The image/soundstage is also excellent.
  • Sound is extremely crisp across a great range of frequencies. Look incredible too!
  • The general sound is tight and the highs and mids are bright but not overly so. The bass is clean and pretty responsive for such a small speaker.
  • Rock seems to shine out every flaw of these speakers - the tweeter's frequency emphasis, the woofers muddiness and the lack of focus of the mid-range.
  • They are unfocused, unable to separate instruments well, unclear, mid-range is lacking, highs are heavily concentrated in one frequency.

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch RP-160M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • The materials are great. No creaking, peeling, or that sense of a flimsy product that some other speakers manufacturer have.
  • These things are built like tanks. Amazing sound. I haven't had a top notch home system before.
  • Very nice, powerful, crisp sound. These are very sturdy, heavy speakers.
  • It also does great in my living room too. Highs and not fatiguing at all. Just clear and very detailed.
  • I wasn't sure about the magnet grills, but they are a nice feature. No more cracked grill posts.
Klipsch RP-600M Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) (Ebony)
  • I like the ebony finish better than the slick piano gloss finish, which is too reflective for my taste and too readily shows fingerprints and dust.
  • The RP-600M have astonishing responsiveness. I'm hearing details in music which I had not heard before. This is the most impressive facet of these speakers.
  • The RP-600M take about 10 hours to decently break in; the sound warms somewhat in the process. I take it as an indicator of quality materials. The speakers are impressively well built.
  • At low levels they sound good and very clear and when you crank them up they deliver a clean balanced sound.
  • The sound great, look great, and the build quality is fantastic.
