Select two speakers:
Klipsch R-41M vs. Sony SSCS5
Klipsch R-41M Bookshelf Speakers
An excellent choice for fans of Klipsch's horn tweeters. If you’re not a fan of horns, you might find the treble a bit harsh. Designed for wide-dispersion listening from a distance, so best used in home theaters and dedicated listening rooms. For nearfield desktop speakers, better options exist.
Sony SS-CS5 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers
A 3-way system is unusual in the bookshelf form factor, but Sony eschews the traditional woofer, midrange, and tweeter design for a woofer, tweeter, and ”super-tweeter” in the SS-CS5. Known for their clarity, but the high-end may be too bright for some.
- The front face of the Sony SSCS5 is approximately 45.30% larger than that of the Klipsch R-41M.
- The depth of the Sony SSCS5 is approximately 10.76% deeper than that of the Klipsch R-41M.
- The spatial volume of the Sony SS-CS5 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers is approximately 60.93% greater than that of the Klipsch R-41M Bookshelf Speakers.
Please Note: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker. In the case of volume, the comparisons are based on a cube that would enclose the speaker entirely. These measurements do not take into account variations in the speaker shape, such as curves, diagonal edges, or cutaways. These measurements cannot be relied upon to measure the internal volume of the speaker.
