Classic Klipsch KG 1.2 2-way Loudspeakers

Back in the mid-1990s these were highly respected speakers and in some areas of the country sometimes hard to find. They are without a doubt (for the money) the best 2-way bookshelf speakers made and were the perfect rear channel speakers in a theater surround sound system. I purchased these new at the Jacksonville (Florida) Sound Advice store in 1996.

Consecutive serial numbers!

KG 1.2

From Klipsch… The two-way KG Series KG 1.2 bookshelf loudspeaker was first introduced in 1992 and manufactured by Klipsch until 1994. While no longer in production KG 1.2 model loudspeakers are still owned and listened to by Klipsch fans around the world as part of two-channel audio and home theater surround sound systems.

    1. Hi Kurt, I haven’t heard the RB speakers but looking at their specs, I think they were a major step forward in design and sound over the much smaller KG 1.2s. My KGs are only 13 x 9.25 x 9.25 and 15 lbs. each. I don’t know if the RB-81s are still considered bookshelf speakers but I bet yours sound great! My main front speakers are Klipsch RP 5s with a built-in powered subwoofer. If placed correctly these sound wonderful and can deliver powerful kick-ass bass, especially when used in a theater surround system. I also have my original Kenwood 888s but I’m afraid to actually use them since I purchased them new in Japan back in the late 1970s.
