Another great in-ceiling option is this set from Klipsch’s CDT series, which allows you to have sound wherever you want it while taking up no floor or surface space.

The high-quality titanium tweeters are outfitted with a flared opening TracTrix horn, which we have extensively discussed in many other Klipsch reviews. The horn’s shape provides efficient dispersion and reduces internal reflections, expelling air away from the tweeters and allowing them to function optimally for a more detailed sound.

The cones simply swivel into the optimal position to ‘point’ your sound where you want it to go.

Recommended:  Would 3 10s Vs 2 12s Sealed Be Louder? (Complete Guide)

The 265-RT, as a 3-Way speaker, covers a much wider range of frequencies to round out your audio experience. The array is made up of dual 6.5″ woofers and a very hardworking 1″ pivoting silk-dome tweeter made of a high-grade polymer composite. They deliver a great frequency response, with deep bass, detailed mids, and crystal-clear highs, thanks to Polk’s patented Power Port bass venting system.

The venting system helps to eliminate distortion risks and keep turbulence to a minimum, but it is important to note that this set should be connected to a dedicated subwoofer for the best bass handling.

The Reflective Room feature allows you to plan the wall distance settings and tailor the frequency response regardless of room shape.

They’re well-made and incredibly durable for such a low price. The magnetic grilles fit extremely close to the wall and function flawlessly when combined with the other Polk speakers in the range.

They can be used as a center, front, or satellite module in a surround system, or in pairs for high-quality stereo sound.

It has built-in switches that allow users to tailor their sound to their specific room and installation.

  • High performance handling.
  • 3-way class pair.

High End Home Theater Speakers

Here’s another Fluance model with a lot to brag about. Because of their bipolarity, they can provide a convincing representation of a much larger set up and are marketed as a stand-alone alternative to a full surround system.

The drivers work in opposite directions, back to back in their cabs at a 45-degree angle from one another. This results in a much wider omnidirectional dispersion than a traditional speaker. They are designed to resemble a cinema surround system setup and are intended to be placed beside or behind the listener for 3-dimensional, sonic immersion.

With a very generous crossover, the dual combination provides a broad frequency response covering all ends of the spectrum, giving the mids (which are often overlooked) a far more dynamic feel. The resulting audio is densely layered, with excellent definition and warmth.

The speakers are well-designed and executed, and are powered by neodymium magnets. They are housed in a fashionable precision engineered MDF enclosure with low natural resonance.

Pros:

  • Bi-Directional Ultra wide dispersion.

Pros:

  • Central sound-bar speaker.

They are simpler than the first back-to-back set model we reviewed, but they deliver powerful sound with high definition. They are the next model up from the larger surfaced cone, allowing for a more sensitive response and better handling of higher output tasks.

The cones are made of a very rigid fiberglass cotton composite that serves as an ideal sounding board. The mid-range pointed dome has a larger surface area inside and produces some of the best cinematic sounds in its class.

They share the same highly calibrated enclosures made of pressure-treated MDF wood, which aids in the elimination of unwanted resonant frequencies within the chambers.

Pros:

  • Bi-polar set-up.
  • Wider dispersal.
  • Great enclosure design.
  • Hardworking drivers.
  • Premium components.

We’re wrapping up our best home theater surround sound reviews with another 5.1 complete set-up recommendation.

It has a dedicated low-frequency bass radiator, an excellent center channel speaker, and four identical satellites with BDSS technology and pressure-coupling for left and right front and rear placement. They share the audio workload to deliver cinematic surround sound that fills the room.

The audio has a lot of different dynamics. For the ultimate jump scares on movie night, the low-frequency sound effects are directed to the radiating 10″ subwoofer. It has a densely rigid cone that is seated in a flexible, snug surround to prevent distortions at maximum outputs.

Its SuperCube features a 250-watt amplifier for powerful sound. The center channel is specifically designed to handle the majority of the work and is highly efficient due to the assistance of two mid-range side firing radiators. They have excellent dispersion, and the pure aluminum dome tweeter tops it all off by preserving the treble frequencies.

Pros:

  • Well-balanced.
  • Expertly designed and developed.
  • Incredible center channel speaker.

Why We Liked It – It is a good example of a package deal where each of the elements are equally matched in their quality.

Surround Sound – Place your surround speakers in your home theater under, to the side of, or behind the seats. This will produce a sound that will put you in the middle of the action. Before you buy, decide between 5.1 channel and 7.1 channel systems.

High End Home Theater Speakers Buying Guide

The majority of modern televisions are designed with a focus on high visual resolution rather than sound, with the main reason being that audio should be handled by an amplifier and speaker system.

Even a 2.1 system will sound noticeably better than a standard TV set. If you’ve never set up a surround sound system before, it can be intimidating, so here’s some helpful information.

What to look for in High-End Home Theater Speakers?

Your primary criteria for consideration are the type of media (movies/audio or both? ), the size of the room, and the amount of power consumed.

Your amplifier’s capabilities will determine the power allowance and, indeed, channel configuration. Many amplifiers have some wiggle room in the form of switchable channel impedance suited to higher or lower watts.

Whether you’re aiming for 5.1 or 7.1, you’ll need a solid center channel option.

The center channel loudspeaker is an essential component in any system, arguably one of the most important because it handles the majority of the soundtrack. It is essential for clear dialogue and, due to its central location, provides the most directional sound.

A dedicated woofer or subwoofer is required to cope with the lower frequencies that really tax the other speakers, making your mids far less clear. The majority of the details are found in the middle range frequencies, and allowing a sub to relieve them of their lower response makes them far more efficient.

In a smaller space, you might want to go with an in-wall or even an in-ceiling mount. Installation is much easier than you might think, but there are some things to consider, which we discuss in greater detail in our article on the 10 best in-wall speakers in 2018.

Conclusion

On the current market, there are a plethora of options that perform admirably in their intended surround fields. They are all designed to be team players, and while some are capable of working alone, they perform best when they are part of a larger group.

Knowing your amplifier’s capabilities is critical for channel selection, as is knowing where to place them.

Finding the right solution for your needs should be relatively simple, and it shouldn’t cost the earth in today’s world.

We have reviewed a wide range of High End Home Theater Speakers models in the hopes of exposing the benefits of each type, the duties expected of it, and whether or not it is right for you as an individual.

Our recommendations, combined with the information in our buyer’s guide, should provide you with everything you need to know before making a purchase, but feel free to peruse our other articles for additional reassurance.
