What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Klipsch R-51M Bookshelf Speaker
  • The bass pushed from this small speaker is impressive.
  • These are my home theater rear speakers. They are perfect for this role. Perfect size and weight.
  • Good, clear, crisp sound. Will produce an amazing amount of sound for the size.
  • These are perfectly sized with good sized woofer. These are real deal speakers for the price.
  • I was very outraged by their weight because I did not think that such small speakers could weigh so much.

What customers say about "Audio"
 
Klipsch R-51M Bookshelf Speaker
  • The audio comes crystal clear thanks to the horn tweeter. The bass is there, but don’t expect it to blow your mind.
  • The highs and mids are perfect in this speakers, the low end is also not bad. Overall, I could not be happier with my purchase.
  • I am impressed with the sound clarity and quality, it seems as though the sound from every instrument is clearly separate and crystal clear, a beautiful thing!
  • Bass is more than enough and is extremely tight and punchy, not boomie and loose. The mids and highs are crystal clear.
  • These speakers have a very full range for my hearing and taste.
