    Klipsch R-15M reviews

    Reference R-15M 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for good clarity for good spectrum of sounds. I use these speaker primarily for MUSIC. They are connected to a Harmon Kardon receiver. I have these placed in the front of my living room on 2 pedestal end tables. These speaker do have a nice capacity for all ranges of sounds - bass, middle and high's. The bass varies on my system depending on the source of the music, digital, vinyl, and in either case analog or remastered. It is better to have a sub woofer in any event for a living room arrangement. More treble / less bass comes through on lps, for sure. Overall, I am very happy with these speakers. For me they were a upgrade - better than good replacement for my aging polks. Soon, I wiil replace my aging receiver. Nice clear sound!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good speakers.� Overall These are very good speakers.� They deliver quality sound, look good and are well made, are inexpensive. However, as a music listener enthusiast, I was looking for more bass.� These speakers do not deliver on this account. :(� Bass is hearable, but, not enough. These are maybe excellent for casual listening.� And I would highly recommend them.� But keep in mind, for a casual listening there are so many options, if specific of music listening is not your primary goal, there are many options within this price range offering more features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but nice. I have them plugged into an older pair of Klipsch R3s bookshelves that are just a bit larger and not made anymore that have plugs for other speakers. So together they really fill the room.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of speakers for the price I really like these speakers. I use them as the second pair behind a 2325 Maranz amp. Sounds good at high volume. B&H was a good place to buy. Quick shipping, no damage

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent surround sound speakers! I'm using these as my surround speakers in my 7.2 home theatre system. They provide excellent clarity and direction coming from the sides. I'm pretty much using Klipsch all around now, with the addition of these on the sides. I can't get over the sound I'm getting from the Klipsch brand, and I can't recommend the brand any stronger. I previously had what I thought was an excellent system, with high quality speakers all around, but it's like I'm in a different world now. Again, these are incredible additions. Two thumbs way up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the fairly decent sound bar it's replacing For years, my dad ran the same set of bookshelf speakers from his receiver in the guest room to the living room. They were fine speakers, but I didn't really get to use them, so, like, whatever. For one of his many birthdays, he received better speakers, and so he wired those up. He also got a new receiver, which meant that the existing setup had to go somewhere. As a young boy with a desire to have superior home theater audio quality, I instantly jacked all of this and hooked it up to the TV in our basement. Suddenly, sound filled up the whole room and didn't sound like total garbage. My weekly Rock Band sessions (the game, not the talent-requiring activity (I played the heck out of Rock Band, especially the drums (I got real good at those (but not quite as good as the people whose videos I watched on YouTube every week when new DLC came out)))) became infinitely more Rock-y and a lot less garbage. I remember that some company put out a speaker that was meant to look like the kind you'd see on an actual stage. The reviews came in and said that it was too expensive for what it was, though it was certainly better than the speakers that are in your TV (and it doesn't matter which TV you have; they've all got subpar speakers, even the ones with great speakers). But it didn't matter, because I had the nice bookshelf speakers I had taken from my dad. This review isn't about those speakers, though. It's about the speakers that replaced the Vizio soundbar that I also purchased from B&H (I buy a lot of things from B&H). I liked that soundbar, which made my binge-watch of the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things far more immersive than it would have otherwise been, but when I hooked up certain electronic entertainment boxes to my television (which I would have bought from B&H, but they didnt have them in stock at the time that needed them (sad)), sometimes there would be an unacceptable lag and the software for the soundbar only let me change the delay in increments of an entire second, which is frankly ridiculous. As an avid consumer of electronic media (I havent seen the sunlight since installing curtains in my apartment because I spent literally 100% of my time in front of this TV (its probably for the best, since my neighbors recoil in horror every time they see me (I dont shower) and that makes me feel bad). So, I decided that it was time for me to make a change. I bought a receiver from B&H (review forthcoming? maybe?) that claimed to have auto-lip-syncing capabilities, but I wasnt going to hook my soundbar up the receiver; that would be ridiculous! So, I also bought speakers. These speakers. They didnt come with Speaker Wire, something I wasnt aware of at the time of purchase because I didnt really understand how the Recommended Accessories system worked (it would have been nice if they had said required, perhaps at the time of checkout to make sure that I knew that I wasnt getting something that was required, but beggars cant be choosers, am I right? (Im begging you to add required, pls)). Unfortunately, it was a Friday, so I wasnt going to be able to get Speaker Wire from B&H for at least 48 hours, and I Wanted It Now (Im a millennial), so I had to buy the wire from someone else. Worth noting: I made two different people accompany me on this trip, and none of them talk to me anymore (which is why I dont shower (whats the point?)). Then I had to buy wire cutters, because I didnt own those. Conveniently, the plaza that had the electronics retailer also had a home improvement retailer. I bought wire cutters as well as a few other essentials and immediately stepped in paint, which I then had to spend 30 minutes wiping off before I was allowed back into my apartment (which is part of why I no longer leave (aint nobody got time for that)). So, I do all of these errands, go through the not-particularly-laborious-but-slightly-time-intensive-for-someone-as-generally-incompetent-as-me process of setting it up (I hadnt done this since installing the speakers I took from my dad, which as I reflect on it may have genuinely been a decade ago (wow, time flies)), and then listened to some music. And it was amazing how much of a difference it made. I could hear sounds that I hadnt heard before. I could feel some of that bass that my soundbar never produced (without a subwoofer, by the way (I live in a New York City apartment and would appreciate not being reported to the police for noise violations by those neighbors who dont like looking at me). As I binge-watched the Netflix Original Sequel Black Mirror, I realized the quality of the audio experience is quite literally incomparable to the thing I had before. I thought I had had it alright, but it turns out I was wrong. (Wouldnt be the first time.) tl;dr: see title of this review
