The Black 1016050 KMC 3 2.1 Wireless Home Music System from Klipsch is small enough to be portable yet large enough for party-level sound, even outdoors. This wireless home music system allows easy music streaming from any Bluetooth equipped smartphone, music device, or computer. It has a solid built and is aesthetically designed with elegant soft-feel paint, high-gloss metallic accents, and touch-sensitive controls.

This wireless home music system has dual 2-inch full range drivers, internally chambered to minimize distortion and provide a clean and highly balanced sound up to 24 kHz. A unique tuned dual-flare port system combines with a built-in 5.25” (13.33cm) subwoofer for deep bass down to 40 Hz.

This home music system features 130W of bi-amped digital amplification with advanced DSP equalization to provide lifelike, dynamic sound at any volume level. Integrated with the AptX audio coding technology, this home music system supports lossless, audiophile-quality streaming.

This home music system also supports AC/DC operation and has a built-in handle, making it portable. Instead of a need-to-recharge unit that stops when the stationary battery dies, 8 “D” cell batteries (sold separately) go all day (up to 26 hours). Unlike tiny, underpowered competitive models, this music system’s sound is designed to come through loud and clear even when competing with the typical noise at a pool party or large picnic.

This wireless home music system keeps all smartphones, most tablets, and other music sources charged with its USB input (cable sold separately) and plays virtually any non-Bluetooth music source with its 3.5mm input (cable sold separately). It remembers the last connected Bluetooth device and automatically reconnects to it the next time, if it’s available. The included remote, controls volume and muting, and most wirelessly connected music sources while they charge and play simultaneously.

    Comments about Klipsch 1016050 KMC 3 2.1 Wireless Home Music System (Black):

    Let me start off by saying that I am not an audiophile by any means, but I definitely can and do appreciate good sound. Last year I was in the market for some IEM and noise-cancelling headphones and, after hours upon hours of research, ended up going with Klipsch for both (X7i, Mode M40). I've used both extensively since purchasing them in February and have nothing but positive things to say. It seemed like a no brainer for me to go with Klipsch again when I was in the market for a speaker, but even so I did still look to see what else was on the market. The only other speaker that sort of appealed to me was the Bose SoundTouch Portable, but after realizing that you need WiFi to connect via AirPlay I was completely turned off. Anyway, ended up going with this one and could not be happier. I've used it regularly since I bought it around two weeks ago and the sound is fantastic. It was super easy to set up and, even with it's large size (it is a bit heavy, I will say that), is easy enough to move around (I take it around the house with me). I've not yet ran it on battery power, but I will definitely in the future and think it's great that it gives you that option as it adds a ton of portability.

      Comments about Klipsch 1016050 KMC 3 2.1 Wireless Home Music System (Black):

      Like many of you reading this I searched long and hard for reviews, Youtube videos, anything I could find out there. It wasn't until the speaker became available in stores (I could go listen) that I decided to take the plunge. - SO glad that I did.I will be honest and tell you I'm a bit of a Klipsch fan. I have a 7.2 setup of Klipsch quintets in one room. Main living room has a 7.1 Klipsch reference II series set. But, what I also wanted was to be able to take that quality of audio with me. Camping, backyard parties, fishing...I can't wait (getting cold here on the east coast, so it might be awhile.) After auditioning some of the major brands and better bluetooth speaker options (list below) I can say for certain, the KMC 3 is the best I've heard.Speakers I've listened to:Bose sound link 2Bose sound link miniUE BoomUE mini boomBeats pillBeats BeatboxSony srs-btx300JBL FlipJawbone Big JamboxMotorola Sol Republic XJabra SolemateI've researched many others as well, a lot, and probably too much time has gone into finding what I wanted...bit obsessive maybe? For sure. BUT, Let me pass what I've learned onto you.What makes the KMC 3 Stand out from the crowd?1) Its size - I actually wanted something a bit smaller, however, after listening to many speakers and knowing what would make an audio enthusiast content, I had to go for something a bit larger. Klipsch did a great job with the size of this (7.2" H x 17" W x 5.5" D). you get big sound in a relatively small package. They do in fact sell a smaller version of this speaker - KMC 1, and an ultra portable model coming soon - GIG. I've not heard them due to availability in stores.2) APT-X Codec - I won't get into details, but if you have a capable bluetooth apt-x device, you will absolutely tell the difference in audio quality between those that do, and those that do not. It's a shame Bose is stubborn, and will probably never use this technology in their speakers. All bluetooth speakers should be using apt-x at this point.3) Design - It's sleek, mature, classy. From soft finish to solid hefty feel, it oozes quality.4) Sound Clarity - Again going back to apt-x. Every sound is extremely crisp. others without apt-x sound dull in comparison. I've even listened to music with a non apt-x source as well - iphones. The sound is still better on this speaker than other similarly priced ones. If you have an apt-x device such as many Samsung phones / tablets. I highly suggest a 3rd party music app called Neutron. You will hear audiophile sound coming from this speaker. It's truly an experience, so much so, you will want to listen to all of your favorites again.5) Bass - Again, very clean at MORE than reasonable sound levels. I've read others say it can get a bit muddy when at extreme levels, but lets face it...anything this compact will. Let me tell you it's not even a concern. I have this thing sitting on top of a granite table, bar height...and it shakes the floor around it, well before any hint of sloppiness. You have to have the thing nearly maxed out, and be listening to something very bass heavy in order for it to get that way.6) IR Remote - Important if the speaker is up, out of the way when home or you just need to turn it on remotely. I've also found an IR remote app that lets me turn the speaker on with my smart phone - Awesome.I clearly love this speaker, but if I were a perfectionist, Hmm. There are a couple things I would change.1) Create an app to allow multiple speakers play simultaneously via bluetooth. Ultimate ears (Logitech) does this with the UE Boom speakers. It would be amazing to hear two of these things come together to create a wide stereo sound.2) Allow "Heist" mode. This allows multiple devices to connect to the speaker at the same time - great for parties as those connected to the speaker can switch to music from their own devices instantly. Without the other person having to disconnect and they having to pair their device again. Motorola's Sol Republic X has this feature.3) Water resistance / More ruggedized / Carrying case? This is something I was really wanting. I feel like Klipsh doesn't even need to change the speaker to do this. Maybe just provide an accessory case that makes you feel more comfortable about plopping your [$] dollar speaker on the grass, or at the beach, etc. As of now it has that pristine feeling that you want to swaddle it in a micro fleece blanket and never let it leave your sight. That could just be me though. : )4) Indicator light on front. The design I believe they were going for is to resemble an amphitheater. The housing starts smaller in the back and widens to the front. It's nice and sleek, but the speaker needs to be below eye level in order for you to see the lights / tell if it's on or off. Kind of nit picking here.These are all minor gripes to be fair and at the end of the day what many of us want is something that sounds great. Klipsch 100% delivers on that. You will not believe the sound emanating from this thing, neither will your friends and family. I would highly suggest this speaker to anyone looking for something in the 300-400 dollar range. That is a lot of money, but I urge you to go have a listen somewhere and compare others as well. From everything I've read, heard, compared, to now owning. It's sure to impress, and I have a feeling you'll come to the same conclusion - It's the best Bluetooth speaker right now.
