Klipsch THX Ultra2 - KL-650 or KL-525

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I want to get the Klipsch THX Ultra2 package for my home theater. The room is about 13*26 ft. I'm considering if I really need the KL-650s since I don't ever play extremely loud; however, I like great dynamics, which is why I like this package. The main purpose is movies, hardly ever music. For surrounds I plan on 4x KS-525.

Is there a sound quality difference in 650 vs 525, or is the difference related to how loud they go? Will the 525's be OK in my room?

Thanks!

KL-650! Bigger sound stage and more mid bass.

going to throw this out there as any jtr fanboy would, but have you ever heard of jtr speakers? http://jtrspeakers.com/

large group of owners/followers of their speakers on the forums here.

pretty sure that anyone that has heard both went with JTRs, i mean i certainly did.

So did I but that was not the question. If the OP wants different speakers we can get him same or better performance for less!

you indeed have a point

i would agree on your previous post of the KL-650s, if he had to chose between the 2

It all depends on how much he is getting the KL-650's for.

Thanks for advice! I'll most likely go for 650s then. Not sure where I'll get them from, I might actually try one of the more fishy places where you can get them new for around $900. They accept credit cards and confirm that serial # etc. is not touched. Will see....

Thanks!

Send Mike Garrett a pm, his user name is AV Science Sales 5, AVS is an authorized Klipsch dealer and I know he's given forum members 50% off of list on the KL-650-THX speakers which works out to $800 per speaker. Which is a great deal.

If it were me, I would order 3 of the Seos Fusion-15 flat pack kits for your LCR's, and then 4 Alpha-8 flat packs for your surrounds. That will certainly out perform the KL-650's and cost a lot less.

Take the money saved and buy 2 or 4 Dayton HO18" subwoofers and a Behringer iNuke 3000dsp and that will kick the KL-650 setup right square in the but!

Same accurate sound quality, higher output with the bigger 650.

I think the 525 would be just fine as well.

The Jamo THX Ultra2 speakers would also work and probably saves you money.
