Klipsch Flexus Sound System

The Klipsch Flexus Sound System (“powered by Onkyo”) is a modular and scalable audio setup that allows users to customize their home-audio environment, especially for home-theater use. But they’re great for music, too, of course.

You can start with one of two soundbars, the 28-inch Core 100 ($349; 100 watts) or the 44-inch Core 200 ($499; 200 watts).

Both soundbars feature Dolby Atmos spatial audio, though Core 200 adds upward-firing speakers to intensify the effect. That model also ups the number of 2.25-inch aluminum drives from two to four. Both models include two 4-inch subwoofers for bass.

To the soundbar you can add Flexus Surr wireless speakers with Dolby Atmos ($249). Their advanced audio processing technologies deliver clear sound with depth and precision. You can place them strategically to maximize your sound.

Complementing the Surr speakers, if you like, is the Flexus 10-inch subwoofer ($299). It fills out the low end — even more than the subs built into the soundbars — ensuring you feel every low-frequency rumble and thumping beat.

All of these Klipsch Flexus Sound System components quickly and easily connect with Klipsch Transport technology, the company said.

And you can operate the system using the Klipsch Connect Plus app for iOS or Android. It lets you access equalizer presets or your own custom EQ, volume control and features like Night Mode and Dialogue Boost. Klipsch said it will add more features, too.

So you can spend $349 on one soundbar or max out the system for $1,050. 

Where to buy Flexus: Klipsch or Amazon for Core 100, Core 200, Surr 100 speakers and 10-inch subwoofer
