Subs form Klipsch and Polk audio
Just wondering if anyone here can tell me if any of these subs (klipsch and polk audio) are any good coz' I see them alot on sale sometimes half price...quite tempting actually. When I listened to them in the store, they seem to be okay. But then again I haven't listened to alot of subs. Thx
I'm assuming that you're reffering to the Klipsch and Polk Audio subwoofers that retail somewhere between $400-$600 at Futureshop and Bestbuy (and often go on sale). While I can't say that I've ever listened to any Polk Audio subwoofers, I have listened to a few Klipsch subwoofers and was usually pleased with the bass they produced. Brad, one of the editors of CANADA HiFi, actually uses two Klipsch subwoofers in his HT and is quite happy with their performance.
What kind of speakers do you own? Does your current setup have a subwoofer? What is the size of your room?
Thanks ...I was just wondering the quality of these subs coz' they seems to be always on sale..I thought there is something wrong with them.
I too was somewhat skeptical when I purchased a Klipsch RW10d sub,
especially when the advertised price was 699.99 and upon enquiring
was reduced to 449.00 ........ but have been very happy with it, I felt
my kit needed some bottom end punch, and it fits in very well.
Good luck with your search !!
The mark-up on subwoofers and speakers is usually pretty high and so it not uncommon to see these products with a significant discount when on sale. This is particularly true of mass produced speakers/subwoofers like these from Klipsch and Polk Audio, which (I believe) are manufactured in China. So a big sale on these products not by any means imply that they are poor quality products. Products often go on big sales when they are about to be replaced by newer models.
If you're looking for a good quality audio or video product, the best thing to do is to look for reviews on the web (on well respected websites). Typically, good quality products always have reviews out there. If you can't find a review out there, it could be an indication of a lesser quality product that no publication wanted to review.
