If you’re breaking into the home theater scene, or maybe looking for a decent setup for the vacation home-type scenario, today’s deal is a good start at a great price.
Featured today at Woot.com (which means they’ll be gone soon) the Klipsch Quintet SL 5-Piece Home Theater System has a slim design factor that goes with today’s plasmas, lcds and what have you. And if space is an issue, they can be wall mounted or placed in any nook or cranny via the included pedestals.
The surrounds feature 3-1/2” long-throw woofers for detail and clarity; 3/4” aluminum dome tweeter is coupled with a MicroTractrix Horn for precise high frequencies. The LCR (left, center, right) speakers use 3-1/2” high-output woofers and a 3/4” aluminum dome tweeter mounted to a Tractrix horn. You can throw up to 200 watts of peak power at them and up to 50 watts of RMS power.
What’s missing from this deal? The subwoofer, if you want to feel those soundtracks. Other than that, reviews tend to be very good for this set. And being from Klipsch, you get their 5-year warranty in case you crank the amp to 11.
