Expert review by: Klipsch XF-48 Speaker System


Nowadays, it seems like I can't write a review without acknowledging the impact of flat-screen TVs on speaker design. Today's speakers have a tough assignment-they better be super-model thin and still have what it takes to belt out heavyweight...

Sleek style designed to complement flat-screen TVs, Killer subwoofer goes deep and still offers above-average definition, Powered towers ease the load on wattage-challenged receivers

Slim modern profile - huge detailed sound


Bottom line these are great sounding speakers which only happen to look great too.

Full range detailed sound rivals that of much larger and far more expensive designs I've heard ; Self powered with both line and rca inputs means you can hook them up to any source ; Slim design disappears and high end cabinet material looks classy

They are on the tall side ; In completely silent room when not in use they emit the slightest of sound apparently from the built in amp I cant hear it from more than a foot or two away and never during playback but its there and you might

Excellent Sound

Product Specifications

The XF48 speaker is part of Klipsch's Reference Icon series of premium high-performance speakers designed to complement flat panel video systems. This powered floorstanding speaker has a 110 watt amplifier in the speaker cabinet. That means you can hook the speaker directly to a TV with a variable audio output and enjoy walloping sound without a separate amplifier. You'll discover the XF-48's performance has but one rival: style. Its beautifully crafted aluminum extruded enclosure, featuring an anodized black-grain finish and high-gloss black accents, is the direct result of our engineers' quest for perfect balance. The entire Icon X Series is performance art at its best, capturing the spirit of our past and pushing us into the future. It is a brilliant representation of how our products have evolved and remained desirable over time. After just one listen, the Icon sound will be imprinted in your consciousness forever. low frequency drivers Dual 5.25 (13.3cm) high-output, fiberglass cone woofers with dual 5.25 x 9 (13.3cm x 22.9cm) passive radiators amplifier HF - Class A/B, LF - Class D Bass-reflex via dual front-firing passive radiators inputs Line-level RCA jack, high-level speaker binding posts height 48.8 (123.8cm) x width 7 (17.8cm) x depth 7.9 (20cm) not including 12 (30.5cm) diameter base / weight 39lbs (17.7kg) voltage 110/120 VAC 60Hz
