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.
