Efficient speaker: Zu, Tekton, Volti, Klipsch, Fleetwood?

We’re moving and I’m looking for a high-efficiency, high impedance speaker that can fill a very large “great room” with smooth, open, detailed sound, both for serious listening and casual background music. I currently have Devore Super 9s, but those will be going in a separate dedicated listening room. I thought about getting another pair of Devores (maybe the O/93) for the great room because I love this brand, but I’m interested in other possibilities The new speakers will be on either side of a 6-foot TV console, so they’ll need to sound good fairly close to the wall behind them. And they will need to have a reasonably good WAF. They will be played mainly at low-moderate sound levels and our tastes include rock, classical, world music and “spa” type relaxation stuff.

Anyone who is familiar with any of the following candidates, please feel free to sound off. As you can see, price ranges are all over the place:

Zu Soul Supreme

Tekton Lore

Volti Razz

Klipsch Forte IV

Fleetwood Deville



I agree with Robshaw, I have the Tekton DI monitors paired with an RSL Speedwoofer driven by a Peachtree Nova 300 and it is audio Nirvana IMHO. Been in audio for close to 50yrs and did pro-audio live sound for 5yrs and this system will be around until I can afford a $25k system. Even then I don't know if it can be beat.


Klipsch are good. Volti is good.  All brands mentioned are good.  I personally have Crites, same size as cornwall. I think better parts in crossover. These are very efficient, approx 100dB. Can get upgraded ALK crossover if you prefer. They would be about 2800 delivered with ALK. They do come unfinished.

I've got the White Pendragons and run them nicely with 8 watts tube...They Are Highly Efficient....Don't let anyone tell you different. I love their soundstage. CEC CD T w/ Ares 2 DAC ....Will blow the doors off with the sound of real instruments playing. Get the Upgrades and the 7 speaker tweeter array and never look back . $2500    You'll LOVE them. (8 ohm)......

Volti Razz without any doubt.

But if you have space Cornwall IV without any doubt or hesitation.

Had never heard of the Volti Razz in the past, need to check those out, look great!
