The good: Flat-screen-friendly speaker; two-way, three-driver design; adjustable wall brackets are included; can be used as front, center, or surround speakers.
The bad: The SLX's rounded shape prevents it from standing on its own; wall- or stand-mounting are mandatory.
The bottom line: Klipsch's new trim speaker can provide the basis of a good-sounding--and good-looking--stereo or surround-sound system.
Great Low Profile Speaker with Punch!

Summary: I work as a Magnolia HT rep. I hear GREAT sounding speakers everyday, bradns like Def. Tech, MartinLogan, ect. Although brands like that are conciderd premium for a reason, I feel Klipsch offers a compareable speaker at a more affordable price. I've done comparisons many times with speakers 2 or 3 times more expensive than these and if your on a budget these are a great value! Its not just the SLX speakers either. Klipsch in general offer great speakers at great prices! I currently have a 6.1 set-up with all SLX speakers, Klipsch Sub 10. Panamax Power center, and Denon 2808 Receiver. I'd say my HT compares to systems maybe 5times more than mine. Bottom line, these speakers kick ass!

Summary: I got into the new flat-panel design not too long ago, and I didn't think they would sound too good due to the lack of a cabinet. But after I heard this set at a local Best Buy store, my first reaction was WOW!! I pictured it in my living room with just a subwoofer on the ground and my loudspeakers mounted to the wall. I also pictured the impression my guests would have, and I honestly think that this would product is worth the money. If your looking for great-quality sound, but trying to save space, even though the price may seem a little touchy, but this would be a great buy for you.

Summary: I have these for over 2 weeks now and they're great. I used them for the 2 front in a 5.1 setup surround sound. I went with Klipsch because they designed good quality speakers system for home and computers.
I'd recommend these to anyone who own a plasma because it looks great with it.
- Manufacturer: Klipsch
- Part number: SLX
- Description: With flat-panel televisions being the hottest new video products around, Klipsch designed its Synergy Series SLX speaker to be an affordable, high-performance audio solution to complement this growing consumer electronics segment. Despite its minimalist sensibility, the SLX delivers the same powerful and detailed sound that has made Klipsch speakers bestsellers. It employs dual 4.5-inch, magnetically shielded IMG (injection molded graphite) woofers and a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter coupled to an exclusive round Tractrix Horn for a dynamic, three-dimensional soundstage. Powerful magnet structures provide high efficiency and low distortion. It also features two custom-engineered, sculpted ports on the front baffle for intense low-frequency extension. In the drive for simplicity, the SLX can be positioned horizontally or vertically and serve as a main, surround or center channel speaker. Furthermore, it can be hung on a wall or mounted to a stand. A Positive Lock Attachment on the back of the speaker ensures simple and reliable wall mounting to the included wall bracket without requiring additional hardware. While on the wall bracket, magnetic positioning allows for precise rotation within a 30-degree range, meaning the user can widen or constrict the soundstage based on audience size. Mounting to a stand is made possible via two ¼"-20 threaded inserts located on the rear of the enclosure. Available in a silver/titanium finish, the smooth and sculpted shape of this dramatic speaker nicely matches today's striking flat-panel displays. With its gray magnetically-attached grille in place, the SLX offers a sense of elegance that flatters a variety of home décors, but take the grille off and you get an aggressive and powerful statement that exudes extreme performance. The SLX is also packaged and sold individually so that users can easily create two-channel or multi-channel configurations. A first of its kind in the Klipsch Synergy Series lineup, the SLX not only serves up affordable, high-end sound but also shows why Klipsch is a number one speaker brand.
