Let's face it: most small speakers have a bad habit of sounding little. That's why we're such big fans of Klipsch's little speaker kits, such as the Quintet II, the company's least expensive home-theater package. This system's pint-sized sats can unleash wide-open dynamics, and the matching sub has plenty of oomph to deploy home-theater punch, as well as taut, highly musical bass. This six-piece system includes four 8.25-inch-tall, deliciously curvy sats; a dedicated, near full-sized center speaker; and a conventional-looking, black, cube-shaped, powered subwoofer that measures 15 by 13 by 13 inches. Since most satellite speakers are either affixed to a wall, put on a shelf, or placed in a cabinet, the Quintet II's sats come with a nifty integrated bracket. This swiveling pedestal is premounted to each satellite.

The KSW 10 subwoofer's high-quality, 100-watt MOSFET amplifier is mated to a 10-inch, down-firing, fiber-composite cone woofer. We were impressed by the unit's solid construction.

We showed the Quintet II no mercy and cranked up the sound to a healthy level but heard no distress from the sats or the sub. The Quintet II is a minimasterpiece of many strengths: smooth, unfatiguing sound; boisterous home theatrics; the ability to play plenty loud; and walloping bass
