    Hi, I recently upgraded my HT system and I decided to go with Klipsch, I love the sound of the horns. My problem is for my mains I ordered a pair of older model KSB 2.1's. When I received them the guy I bought them from sent me KM-2's. These are an even older model. I have emailed the guy and he has offered to refund my money for the confusion, but I have hooked up the speakers, and they sound good. I was hoping someone could give me some input on the quality of these. They are old enough that I cant find any reviews on them. I just would like to hear from someone that owns or has knowledge of this older model, or if I should hold out for the KSB 2.1's, the problem is they are hard to come by.

    Thanks for your time!

    Here is a picture of the KSB-2.1's
    and here are the KM-2's
    To me, the KSB's are way better, so I'd get the money back or get the right speakers.
