Once properly set up these surrounds do exactly what they are supposed to do. Check your audio settings on your TV set’s menu to make sure you’re feeding the Cinema 600 system the proper audio signal to produce true 5.1 surround. If you don’t do this you will be getting nothing but 2 channel audio out of the system. Speaker placement and room dynamics matter too. Properly set up this is a phenomenal system that will give you high end sound for a fraction of the money. Surround speakers are for ambience, not the main sound. Educate yourself on what surround sound is and what it is not. It has been said that 90% of consumer level home theaters are not set up properly due to so much misinformation and confusion caused by the industry.
It takes a very positive or a very negative experience for me to put the effort into writing a detailed product review. My Klipsch ownership experience has been very substandard, to say the least.
In short, my Klipsch Cinema 600 5.1 surround system quit working about 6 months after purchase. I have gone back and forth with their support team for the last 4 weeks and I still have another month to wait before I have a full 5.1 set up. Yet a new customer could use Amazon to have this same Klipsch Cinema 600 5.1 system delivered within 3 business days. I'd have a very hard time genuinely recommending Klipsch.
A more detailed review:
The sound of this system was a good upgrade over my 8 year-old Sony system. I was looking for a sound improvement as well as an eARC HDMI capable sound bar, along with surround sound. I purchased the Klipsch 600 3.1 sound bar and the Surround 3 speakers separately. They were on sale individually at a better price in April 2021 as opposed to purchasing the complete Cinema 600 5.1 system in one package. My understanding is that these are essentially the same set up, and the Surround 3 speakers are made available individually for owners who want to upgrade from 3.1 to 5.1 sound. The system arrived on time, was extremely easy to set-up, looked good, sounded wonderful and functioned flawlessly for 6 months.
Then in early November, my left rear Surround 3 speaker quit working in the middle of a TV show. I contacted Klipsch support a few days later and was asked to swap the L/R switch on the Surround 3 speakers. When I went to perform this ask, the Klipsch 600 sound bar would not power on at all. I proactively attempted every trouble shooting step I could think of to find where the failure was and it seemed it was indeed the sound bar itself. Klipsch support only offered one additional step of swapping the power cord from the subwoofer to the sound bar to see if the power cord was the issue. This confirmed it was in-fact the sound bar itself that had failed.
Last week, a replacement sound bar arrived, this being about 3 weeks after the Klipsch equipment first began to falter. The new sound bar was just as easy to set up as the first one was. Of note: the remote batteries were unusable as they were covered in acid, leading me to suspect that this bar was very old or was stored in poor conditions. Regardless, I re-paired the Bluetooth subwoofer and the Bluetooth Surround 3 speakers to the replacement sound bar. Still, the left Surround 3 speaker would not produce any sound. Additionally, the right speaker sound quality was drastically worse, as if it had been blown out. Once again, I contacted Klipsch support to update them on this development.
Today, was the 16th message that Klipsch support and I have exchanged in the last month. I will be sending my Surround 3 speakers back to them today, but I will have to wait another month at minimum for the replacement surround speakers as they are on backorder. As I stated towards the start of this lengthy review - I find it ironic that a new customer can have my same 5.1 set up in 3 business days, yet I have to wait another month. That will mark 8 months of ownership - 25% of that time will be without a properly functioning system.
So, within 7 months of Klipsch ownership, I have experienced a failure in 3 of 4 pieces of equipment. Only the subwoofer remains performing properly. While this is not the most expensive system out there, I really expected better longevity than this. I spent extensive time researching different sound options before making this purchase. Perhaps I'm just an unfortunate outlier. But if this helps anyone avoid a similarly infuriating experience; I'll consider this review time well spent. I will also come back to update this review if any other relevant events occur.
Speakers are beautiful, I used a couple of small shelves I bought in Amazon, and they fit the speakers perfectly. The pairing is not easy. Once the original pairing happens, there sound great for 1 second and then the volume goes to like 1 of 100. You can barely hear any sound coming out of the speakers. It took some patience and time to get it to work - you can adjust the volume manually using the soundbar, just follow the instructions in the user manual step by step. Once the pairing is fixed, the sound coming out of these speakers is great. Unfortunately, one of my speakers stopped working within 1-2 hrs of playing music - very disappointing. I'm returning them and will order a new pair.
Setup was a little tedious, I knew about the required firmware update going into this, and that wasn’t an issue and went fine. They paired up immediately and I was able to adjust the volume of each surround speaker following the guide in the booklet. They’re clear and loud enough for real surround speakers. (These are not full volume full range speakers, they will only play actual surround sounds as they are decoded). Pricey but I caught them on sale and they really amp up the sound bar and sub to a 5.1 system.
I’ll never understand why an expensive, supposedly high quality, name brand speaker specifically designed for my bar 48 is barely audible even after the firmware update and volumes at Max for both. Klipsch seriously dropped the ball on this and has guaranteed they will never get another dime from me. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. HARDLY WORTH 20.00 LET ALONE 250.00. I can’t help but feel bamboozled and ripped off. They look okay tho. Hey Klipsch, try another firmware update that actually works.
I am so glad this upgrade was available for my cinema 600. This definitely completes the surround experience and helps us enjoy our movies and songs with a great sound quality. I noticed some people mention that it could be louder but I beg to differ. The quality of the sound would diminish if it was and for the space it covers, it is more than adequate. Overall, satisfied with these two little guys that have made a big difference in our listening experience.
I purchased the Surround 3 speakers in March. In May, one speaker began making clicking and snapping noises on occasion. By July, the speaker clicked, snapped, and buzzed with each use. On August 7, I emailed Support with a description of the problem, attaching an audio clip of the noises. I received a robo-email immediately stating Support would be contacting me. On August 17, I received an email stating Support was busier than usual, but I was not forgotten. I have had no contact from Support since. My email of September 9 expressing my dissatisfaction has been ignored. Electronics fail at times, but when they do, a reputable company should make it right. Klipsch apparently does not. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK, or better yet: LOOK ELSEWHERE!!
I'm using the Surround 3's with the Cinema 600 sound bar. They sound pretty great when they're working properly. My big issue with these is that they crackle often. I even sent in for a replacement but the replacements crackle too. I don't know what causes it, and sometimes the same movie scene will sound fine. Oh well.
