Indianapolis - Klipsch is rolling
out a new speaker series exclusive to Best Buy.
The Klipsch Icon series of five SKUs
priced up to $899/pair will be available for purchase in Best Buy Stores
nationwide on May 22.
The Icon series isn't Klipsch's
first exclusive speaker line for the chain. In 2008, Best
Buy launched Klipsch's Icon V series on an exclusive basis.
The new five-SKU series consists
of two floorstanding speaker pairs at $699 to $899, a $249 bookshelf pair, a
$249 center channel, and a $279 surround pair. They will join matching Klipsch
subwoofers already in the store at $350 and $450.
Upgrades to the series include a
new finish, new logos and feet, the company said. The speakers also feature IMG
woofers that use light, sturdy diaphragms and a massive motor structure to
deliver "highly defined, accurate bass response," the company said.
The surround speakers feature
Klipsch's Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) to deliver both maximum
surround coverage and improved placement flexibility, the company noted.
