Klipsch Icon WB-14 Speaker System

 

This is the story of the flower horn. It is a story of bumps and mumps. It is getting started a little cryptically. I always love it when that happens.

Klipsch Icon WB-14 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Reviewed

 

At $599 per pair the Klipsch Icon WB-14 aims to provide a more balanced and less in-your-face overall sound. It's less directional than other horn designs and is better suited to wider variety of music than other models. It has less of a "horn sound'...

The WB-14 provides a superb level of fit and finish with convenient touches like easy mounting and high quality binding posts. This product will fit into many different decors and can impress the neighbors front-and-center in an audio or home theater...

The WB-14's sonic balance still veers towards the zippy side, and might not appeal to the classical, jazz, and even soft rock crowd. This is a must-audition speaker because of the likely higher expectations and crossover appeal into higher-end...

I liked the WB-14, more than I thought I would. Klipsch has succeeded in bringing a level of refinement to its typically aggressive designs and sonic palettes. The finish and construction are first rate, and the performance fits many different types...

Icon WB-14

 

These speakers are definitely winners and a must own for those looking for great sound and overall best value. They have the looks and certainly, the power to back it up. The clarity these bookshelves produce is second to none. The soundstage they...

Small but whatta delivery!

 

I'm new to Newegg but they came thru with the great price and free, fast shipping. Such a good experience I treated myself to the matching center channel speaker.

Forget that the cabinet is as nice as you will ever see for a moment, and let me tell you about what's important... The sound... So long as you have a sub, you will not be disappointed. The highs are crisp and clean and the mids have great depth for...

Absolutely nothing

Just right

 

If you have never heard high end speakers or own high end speakers, these will likely be quite an upgrade, but they can't compete with some of the higher end speakers that I have had the chance to hear (I just couldn't afford to buy the more expensive...

I ordered two pairs of these to replace my front and rear speakers in my home theater because my Kenwood speakers were starting to show their age. I hooked them up, turned on some music and a tear almost came to my eye. They sounded so much better than...

These speakers are very "bright" when it comes to music as are most Klipsch speakers. Just the nature of the horn loaded tweeter design. I prefer a "warmer" speaker when it comes to music, but I bought these specifically for my home theater for...

Incredible Bookshelf Speakers

 

Other review may not give 5 star for this speaker. It is because at that time this speaker was still very expensive. But now it is not.

Excellent sound. The mid is sweet. The high frequency is clear and extended but definitely not harsh. The bass is also powerful and extended enough for this kind of bookshelf speaker. It also creates a vivid image of sound ; Originally, this speaker...

Looks great, sound should be better

 

I am not bashing the speaker, I am going to keep them because they make the room so pretty. I bought the center too. I guess it all depends on where you come from. But if you already have high end speakers and look for something different, beware...

As everyone said, the cabinet is fantastic. I don't think more needs to be said about this ; Unique Klipsch sound. Soft and buttery, not bright at all. My first horn speaker and it's pleasant

I am not going to name the other brands of speakers that I own and I am comparing this against, so people don't think I am a fanboy and promoting some other brand, but these speakers leave a lot to be desired in the are of detail. If you have had a...

LOVING THAT PURE CRISP SOUND and it LOOKS NICE

Amazing, Just Amazing

 

I bought 4 WB-14's and a WC-24 to be used in my 5.1 system powered by an Onkyo 709 and a Cadence CSX-12 sub. My system is installed in my 24'x16x9' living room, that opens up to the rest of the house. The WB-14s and WC-24 have no problem filling my...

Gorgeous looks, clean, powerful sound

They look so good with the grill off, you'll have a tough time putting it on

Consumer review by:

Great Buy!

 

Great sound, sharp looking and a fabulous price. I was looking for bookshelf speakers that could stand on their own as mains or function as rear surrounds. These speakers do both with awesome sound quality

Can't think of any

Product Specifications

To the eye, the WB-14 bookshelf speaker reflects a classic approach, featuring a furniture-grade wood veneer cabinet. But to the ear, there is nothing traditional about it. For big sound performance, the small WB-14 employs a premium titanium diaphragm compression driver and high-output fiberglass cone woofer. But what really makes this bookshelf speaker superior is an all-new patent-pending Tractrix horn-loaded tweeter with XT technology. For over 60 years, horns have been the driving force behind Klipsch signature high-output, low-distortion sound. X-Tractrix - engineering takes this time-proven philosophy to new heights by altering the surface geometry, which equalizes the speed of sound wave from the horn and smoothes the dispersion pattern. Overall, the entire Icon W series brings a sound mantra - power, detail and emotion - to a new generation of audio enthusiasts who demand aesthetically pleasing products that still deliver outstanding sonic performance.
