Black Friday 2018: The Sale Is Already Underway

SVS, Klipsch, LG, and others get the BF party started.

LG got Black Friday sales rolling a week ago when it announced its “Best Prices” of 2018 sale, and momentum continues to build this week as companies decide to get the Black Friday party started now rather than wait until after Thanksgiving.

Here are some of the deals that have been announced so far…

As part of its “Early Black and Copper Friday Deals,” Klipsch is offering 50% off on its R-51M bookshelf speakers (shown at right, marked down to $124/pair from $249), 50% off on the R-120SW powered subwoofer ($224, down from $449), 40% off on the R-610F tower speakers, ($149 each, down from $249), and up to 50% off on more than 50 other models.
