Klipsch The Fives Stands – Properly placed

Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors are extremely versatile active speaker systems that have what it takes to represent a complete hi-fi system. The new Klipsch The Fives Stands are the perfect way to ensure that they can really be placed in the best possible position.

Klipsch The Fives Stands, a very interesting solution for proud owners of Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors. These are stands that allow the active loudspeaker systems from Klipsch to be optimally positioned.

The Active Wireless Speakers from the Klipsch Heritage Wireless Series can thus realise their full potential.

Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors as a versatile all-in-one system

The Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors are an extremely versatile, yet very compact hi-fi system. In principle, these active speaker systems have everything you would expect from a compact audio solution, but in a very compact form.

The system combines a HDMI interface with ARC (Audio Return Channel) for the connection of a TV set, further digital and analogue inputs and Bluetooth – essentially all the features that are needed, even a phono preamplifier designed for record players equipped with MM cartridge systems.

The use of a powerful integrated Class D amplifier with a total of 160 watts driving a 4.5 inch woofer and a 2.5 cm titanium tweeter with Klipsch Tractrix horn, combined with a bass reflex system, ensures the legendary Klipsch sound often quoted by the US manufacturer.

Klipsch The Fives Stands for Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors

With dimensions of 304.8 x 165.1 x 234.9 mm, you can probably find a place for this system anywhere in the living room, so in principle an optimal placement would not really be a problem in this case.

Nevertheless, especially compact loudspeaker systems, so-called bookshelf speaker systems, gain immensely in assertiveness and attention to detail if you really set them up in the best possible way, and that includes the right “foundation”.

Some furniture is not really designed for placing loudspeaker systems on it. Nothing stands in the way of clean reproduction more than if the piece of furniture in question produces resonances and vibrations that damage the sound.

Therefore, suitable stands are ideal, such as the Klipsch The Fives Stands now offered for Klipsch The Fives Powered Monitors.

Solid, slim construction

The Klipsch The Fives Stands have a solid yet slim metal construction, with a height of 585 mm, a width of 230 mm and a depth of 320 mm.

That it is a solid construction is evidenced by the weight of 18.4 kg per pair.

The column of the Klipsch The Fives is designed in such a way that all cables for the active speaker systems can be concealed, at least as far as possible, first and foremost the power cables, of course.

The base plate rests on height-adjustable spikes to ensure optimal decoupling. Small metal plates protect the floor from scratches.
