Upgrade 1995 KLH 900 b three way speaker system

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have the above speakers as the fronts, a 2 way KLH center and small square KLH surrounds. I recently upgraded my reciever to a Denon 1713 and added a 12 inch powerd sub woofer. Sounds great but Im now researching upgrading the fronts and center, and re-using the old KLH 3 way fronts as the surrounds. I found a few old positive reviews on the 900b on the web and theyre in great shape..

I looked at Klipsch Icon K15 fronts and a matching center at my local BestBuy for around $500.00. The salesman tauted the tweeters and said that alot of movie theaters use Klipsch. I surmise that they would be a significant upgrade to my KLH system, however not sure if i have to spend that much, or if theyre the best bang for the buck. Also, not sure if theyd be big enough for my room which is 15' x 25'. Perhaps klipsch RB 51 would handle the room size better, but theyre more than i planned to spend. Starting to look at other brands, but is starting to get overwhelming. Any suggestions?

Look at the HTD Level Three bookshelves and center,
They will beat-up the KLH speakers.

How do those compare to KB15s?

For me, the HTD Level Three is clearly a better speaker.

Listened to pioneer f22 towers today, my klh 900b speakers sound better. Maybe it's the 8" woofer? Decided to keep them as fronts, might still replace the 2 way klh center someday. I've read here about the perils of mismatched centers, but I have a denon 1713 with audyssey which I've read balances mismatched centers.
