What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Klipsch R-28F Floorstanding Speaker (Each)
  • Build quality is great, I feel like if these fell it wouldn't be the end of the world and the woofers do not feel like they are made of tissue paper and held in with staples like some other brands
  • Like others have said these speakers are huge and heavy. Make sure you have room for them.
  • Be aware, these speakers are BIG. Make sure you have the proper room to give them and let them breathe before buying them.
  • This item cost a lot, and is heavy and large.
Klipsch RP-260F Floorstanding Speaker - Ebony ( Single unit )
  • The Klipsch speakers are well built heavy wood enclosures which gave me hope of coming closer to the Cerwins than the much smaller and aging Polk system.
  • Looks great and sounds even better. love the size too. really good combination of everything.
  • I can't say enough about the speakers! They are tall and thin, but they are heavy! The sound they produce for the money is awesome!
  • Excellent speakers! Not very wide but they are deep and heavy.
  • Awesome sounding speakers I love them they are heavy and packaged very well.

What customers say about "Audio"
Klipsch R-28F Floorstanding Speaker (Each)
  • Sound quality for the price range is fantastic
  • Extremely efficient, you wont need to pump a constant 1 million giggawatts into these to get great sound
  • The mids and highs are so clear that listening to my favorite songs is like hearing them for the first time because it sounds so good.
  • These speakers are phenomelly loud. I drive them with a modest Marantz NR-1504 receiver. I don't really consider myself an adiophile, but these speakers sound great to me
  • The only negative I would say about these speakers is they don't have great lows, but a subwoofer will fill that void
Klipsch RP-260F Floorstanding Speaker - Ebony ( Single unit )
  • The sounds are crystal clear and sound stage is spacious when paired with a Marantz receiver.
  • I personally have not heard better sound quality from a set of speakers at this price point.
  • Upgraded to these from HTIB satellite speakers. Huge upgrade and couldn’t be happier. Great sound quality.
  • Excellent sound when placed properly, full rich base for the size.
  • They're crystal clear and deliver excellent treble and mid-range.

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch R-28F Floorstanding Speaker (Each)
  • The style stands out and you have the option of putting the grills on for a more "standard" look
  • Speaker is first rate. Bottom stand leg supports can be removed for horizontal installation.
  • Great sound - works well with my Jolida tube system. Very clear.
  • I was using an older Denon 7.1 surround sound receiver with these speakers. My wife bought me a new Yamaha receiver recently as a gift. The new receiver has the automatic room equalization feature. This really helped with the sound from these speakers.
  • The speaker grills were disappointing. They work themselves off slowly and not due to vibrations. They don't seem to have exactly the correct dimensions needed to align with the mounting holes without placing tension on the posts
  • The grills are made of flimsy plastic which belies the premium speakers these are supposed to be. Since the grills are not necessary, this isn't a deal killer albeit disappointing. The speakers looks great with or without them.
Klipsch RP-260F Floorstanding Speaker - Ebony ( Single unit )
  • The construction of the cabinets is also good. The bass drivers have stamped frames, rather than the more robust cast frames.
  • The crossovers appear to be reasonably good quality (air coil inductors for treble, solid core for bass, if that is important to you.)
  • Like the overall build quality and sound from these speakers. They also output good amounts of base. Very happy with the purchase.
  • Really nice construction, excellent clarity at all volume levels. I have it paired with the RP-440C center speaker and the 12" Reference sub.
  • What a great product. The sound is very clear and together with my Klipsh R-112SW subwoofer and Klipsch RP-440c center speaker the sound is beautiful. On top of that, they look fantastic.
