Klipsch THX Ultra2 Home Theater Ready to Blow the Walls Out and Empty Your Wallet

by Paul Strauss

I’ve always wanted to set up a home theater that had the kind of big, wall-shaking sound you get at a serious THX-certified movie theater. I always end up with something a bit more down to earth because I don’t want to completely piss off my neighbors – and my wife – by turning our house into a wall of sound. Still, I can dream, can’t I? And right now, I dream of this totally bitchin’ Klipsch THX Ultra2 system.

When set up in its full 7.1 surround configuration, this beastly home theater system includes 3 KL-650-THX LCR and 2 KL-525-THX LCR full-range fronts, 2 KS-525-THX wide-dispersion surrounds, a pair of KW-120-THX subwoofers, and a KA-1000-THX subwoofer amplifier, blowing out 1000 watts of Class-D power.

When properly installed in a home theater, the system creates a literal wall of sound behind your screen – just like in a real movie theater.

Of course, the entire system is THX-certified, and requires professional installation if you really want it to sound like it does at a proper movie house. Oh yeah, the Ultra2 system as configured above will set you back a whopping $12,999.91 (USD) – and that’s just for the speakers and the subwoofer amp.

You’ll still need to buy your amps, decoders, projector, screen, and playback devices, as well as to build out a proper home theater room to really enjoy this. For now, I’ll just look at the pretty pictures and drool, as I’m sure many of you are doing right now.

    Only real issue is most “real theaters” aren’t set up optimally for movies. They have to compromise for the immense size and crowd spread out wall to wall to give everyone a “satisfactory” experience. Home theaters can be so much better than “real theaters”
