Klipsch HD Theater SB 3 Review


Take a quick look at the sound bars currently available, and one thing becomes immediately clear: They seem to be getting smaller and smaller, year after year. Luckily, they seem to be getting better, too. Take, for example, the Toshiba Mini 3D sound...

Huge, gutsy, exciting sound ; Big on dynamics and low on distortion ; Surprisingly awesome, bone-crunching bass ; Wireless sub makes placement much easier ; Great sound for both music and movies

Almost no features to speak of ; No remote control for sub/bass level ; Only one digital input severely limits flexibility ; No Bluetooth capability

The Klipsch SB3 sounded more like a good pair of stereo speakers than almost every other sound bar we’ve yet heard.

Klipsch HD Theater SB 3 Soundbar Review


In the Klipsch HD Theater SB 3, the company has taken their trademark horn design, coupled it with a wireless subwoofer, and cooked up an easy way to improve sound with minimal impact on aesthetics.

For minimal footprint, there's no substitute for the sound bar form-factor. The Klipsch HD Theater SB 3 would be a perfect compliment to a 50" or larger flat panel whether wall mounted or sitting on a stand. At an MSRP of around $800, the SB 3 is...

Klipsch HD Theater SB 3 Soundbar Video Review


Every speaker has its place, whether large or small. Free-standing speaker advocates are free to cast their derision, but for folks looking to improve on the anemic sound baked into modern flat-screens, without giving up that near-zero footprint,...

Amazing Soundbar


I was debating between soundbars by Klipsch, Bose, and Sonos. I have the Bose SIE2i headphones, and respect the sound quality Bose delivers. I have the Klipsch Gallery G-17 speaker, and love the overall sound experience. I ended up going with Klipsch,...

Not really 3D sound, soundbar didn't work when it showed up

Good sond bar for the price compared to Bose


This sound bar replaced a surround sound system. The system as well as a number of components were connected through a receiver. The only way to get sound through the TV is to connect the cable box directly to the TV. None of the other components work...

Price, quality of sound,ease of set up

No HDMI and therefore cannot cannot connect to a receiver, the volume control is poor

Great Bang for the Buck


Easy to install on wall which is what we wanted to do all along. Can turn the sub off if we don't want the harder boom but who are we kidding we always have it on. The sound quality is amazing. I'm sure you could get better but not for 600, good...

Works with TV as well as dvd players and music and sound quality is awesome

Nothing obvious to this point

I had been searching around and reading reviews for about a month before deciding on the SB3. I ordered it online without ever hearing it, so it was a bit of a risk. Once it arrived I was extremely happy with my choice! Huge sound, crystal clear even...

no bluetooth, no mounting hardware included
