Story Center Channel Speaker

We named it after an important street in Cambridge, but the Story Center channel speaker does exactly what the name says. Most of the dialog in your movies comes from the center channel, so make sure the one you choose meets your expectations, from the low purr of a leading actor’s subtle dialogue to the howl of your favorite action hero. Every movie tells a story, and every Story Center channel brings your movies to life. The Story is timbre-matched to all KLH loudspeakers, excluding the Model Five, so you’ll get the perfect match between left-center-right for the complete home theater experience. It features the same quality drivers, tweeters, and components used throughout the KLH line.

    Very nice speaker. I already owned the KLH Quincy w/ Windsor 2.1 set, and the Story was perfect for 3.1 upgrade. It produces a pleasantly dimensional sound field, detailed beyond expectation. Dialogue is crystal clear when watching movies or shows, and sometimes when I listen to music through my AVR I’ll switch to all channel stereo and let this thing shine with the Quincys. It keeps right up with them, and I’ve pushed these speakers pretty hard. Highs aren’t too bright, which is great for me. The only negative thing I could pick out on this speaker is, unlike my Quincy towers, the magnetic grill doesn’t automatically connect to the proper points of attachment when it snaps on so you have to finagle it slightly to fit properly, but that’s really just me nitpicking to be honest and wasn’t enough to impact my rating for this item. Anyway, I would recommend the Story as an excellent addition to any HT system, but especially so if you already own the Cambridge, Quincy, or Kendall model floor speakers.

    Fantastic center channel speaker & a very lucky ‘scratch & dent’ find I bought this KLH Story center channel speaker to match KLH bookshelf speakers that my grandfather had passed down to me years ago. All I can say is “wow!” The range is impressive, voices in movies are extremely clear, and gaming audio from the center now has a new level of realism that I hadn’t experienced before. Also worth noting that I purchased the ‘scratch and dent’ version of this speaker since the speaker would be relatively hidden. It came in a different box but there was literally only ONE small scratch on the side, which I filled in with a black wood/furniture marker. It looks brand new. Thank you Crutchfield!

    I bought these along with the KLH Kendall towers and KLH Beacon dipole surrounds 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. I’m completely satisfied with the Story as the dialogue is crystal clear and natural sounding. I’m hearing more detail out of the Storys than my previous system. All KLH speakers are well built with great fit and finish and the Story is now exception. Looks great and the system as a whole sounds phenomenal so not a single complaint here. Highly recommended!

    Awesome speakers! Come party! Outstanding! Great power and sound. Use these in my garage with commercial lighting and fog system. Very happy. Very loud! Only point, instructions show a keyhole mount… none on mine. I had to use universal mount which I already had. No problem. Love them!!!!!

    Incredible detailed sound, crystal clear dialogue at all volumes. Pairs up and matches well with my KLH Kendalls for L & R, Beacons for surrounds.
