Klipsch RF-15

The Good Svelte tower speaker; two-way design featuring twin 5.25-inch woofers and a 1-inch horn tweeter.

The Bad Deep bass is missing in action.

The Bottom Line While the RF-15's highly detailed sound will wake up your home theater, you'll need Klipsch's RW-8 to fill out the low end.

Klipsch RF-15

Klipsch's sleek RF-15 tower achieves a home-theater ideal. The speaker is sufficiently large to deliver enough gusto to rock our world, but its slim lines don't offend our finely attuned sense of decor. And at $299 each, the RF-15 is the company's least expensive tallboy design. That said, if you're looking for a little more low end, you'll have to bring a subwoofer into the mix.

The RF-15's vinyl-wrap, cherrywood finish is pleasant enough but not terribly convincing; the other option is black ash. The sturdily constructed medium-density-fiberboard speaker stands 36.9 inches tall and weighs 37 pounds. All in all, the design is rather attractive and modern-looking.

Only 6.75 inches wide, the tower would be considerably precarious if it weren't for the molded-plastic stabilizers extending from the speaker's base. Klipsch includes spikes for carpets and rubber bumpers for hardwood or tiled floors.
