Klipsch "Made in China"?!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi
I bought a set of Klipsch Reference from the Dealer in Europe, and they say "Made in China". The finish is Superb, but Made in China? I tought they were made in USA, in fact i was waiting for them to arrive from USA....

Klipsch Reference series have been made in China for over ten years now. In fact, it was 2003 I bought a pair a Klipsch RF15's and they were made in China along with all other Reference models except the highest end models, Ref 3 & Ref 7. Those were still made in Hope. I believe the new Ref 7 II is now made in China also but if not, I am sure someone can correct me.

So don't worry - people have been enjoying Klipsch Reference speakers made in China for over ten years now. If these are the speakers you want, I am sure you will too.

95% of all speakers are made in China now.

If you want some good speakers that are made in the USA, I suggest Vandersteen or Ascend.

Anyone know of any others?

I think Dynaudio speakers are still made in Denmark.

I love my Klipsch and wouldn't trade them..i was only surprised to see they are Made in China.
I had Monitor Audio before, and i think, like i say, i think they were made in UK. I had the RX Silver Series, but poor Monitor Audio compared to my Klipsch Reference, the Klipsch smokes it in the first round.

I think the RF-7 II are still built in Arkansas, USA but this might have changed. I have the RF-82 II system, RF-52 II, RF-35 system with 4 RB-25's as opposed to 2 RS-35's and absolutely love them

I recently bought RF-7 II (Front); RF-82 II (Back); RC-64 II (Center); RS-62 II (Middle Back), and Sub SW-311 (First Sub) + Sub-115 (Second Sub), and all of this with Susano Amplifier.
It ROCKS my Cinema area.... wink.gif

I have the Monitor Audio RX-2 and they are made in China as well.
Which RX speakers did you have previously and which Klipsch model now? I am curious as I just aquired a pair of the aforementioned Klipsch RF82's on the bogo sale with an RC-62 centre, enjoying them but the jury is still out whether I like them more than the RX-2 and matching centre.
cheers

- RX6 (Back)
- RX CLR (Front)
- RX-W12 (Sub)
