One of my favorite things about the Model Five is its elegant simplicity. There are five major acoustic components in this floor-standing speaker, and they were each developed with the intent of reaching the highest performance quality possible- without breaking the bank. We knew the level of performance we wanted to achieve from the start, so in the engineering realm, it was easy to map out the product design and quality that was necessary to reach those objectives. We did not spend money where it was not needed. Instead, we focused on the individual components and specifications required to build this groundbreaking loudspeaker.
Acoustically voiced to blend seamlessly with all models in the KLH Audio speaker line, the Beacons complete a cohesive sound system. The Beacon surround speakers are sonically matched to work harmoniously with all other KLH speakers and deliver optimum performance in home theater applications. Their expansive soundstage and precise imaging produce spacious, dynamic surround sound that you feel all around you. Adding a Beacon to your system will create the ultimate home theater escape that transports audio enthusiasts to a world filled with excitement and action!

My first impression is this, I haven’t had time to break these in and sit and listen intently. However based upon what I already know; these speaker grills are a problem. They are made from mdf wood or some other type of wood product. This results in an overly thick grill. These grills will affect the dispersion and off axis frequency response. They seem to know this so they’ve routed the edges near the woofer. You can see in the picture that the tweeter hole is probably thicker than necessary. It could be a bigger opening for the sound to get out. I will update this review in the future. I love the KLH speakers. I have a matching system. I have a windsor 12, story center, cambridge mains and beacon dipole surrounds. I’m currently waiting for a tv stand for storage then I will get a new receiver. Most Likely a Sony DN-1080. Pro: Nice drivers Cons: frugal speaker grills

Splendid surround speakers, at any price. Dipole only. I prefer the phase effect in my system. But, as always, it’s a personal choice. Be aware–these are heavy speakers. You will likely need good quality stands or a sound wall mounting rig.
Crutchfield customer from Ocean Isl Bch, NC –
Dipole Surround. Very well packed for shipping. The speakers arrived totally undamaged. I added them to my home theater and man do they sound great. They add another dimension to both movies and music. I would highly recommend these speakers to anyone. Pros: As stated above, great sound with movies or music Cons: None
Crutchfield customer from Lewiston, ME –
Good sound for the rear speakers in my cinema room Pros: Full sound

I’m using the Beacon pr for my side ch because I have a Quincy pr for my rear ch. My Kendall, Story, Albany & Windsor KLH speakers sound great! I’ve added Albany to my Story center ch.
Crutchfield customer from Gaithersburg, MD –
After I received the first pair I was so impressed by the sound & construction quality of KLH Beacon that I decided to get a second pair. As usual, Crutchfield support has been excellent. Pros: Excellent quality, great price Cons: none
Crutchfield customer from Centennial, CO –
Great Surrounds Create an Immersive Experience! I bought these along with the KLH Kendall towers and KLH Story center and finally have the system up in running in our new house. I’ve got everything hooked up to a Denon X3500H and calibrated the system with the Audessy mic that came with the AVR. The Beacons are easily the best surrounds I’ve heard. I’m new to dipole speakers and KLH, but I’m hearing more detail out of these than my previous system and the surround effect seems more encompassing than the surrounds of my old system that were aimed directly at listeners ears. They are very well built and look great. The system as a whole sounds phenomenal so not a single complaint here. Highly recommended!

Immersive surround! Great surrounds to match the rest of my KLH 5.1.4 line up and add to an incredible immersive experience!
