Hi, I'm Jim from Greece.

I am interested on ordering 'Klipsch theater 5.1 pack' from ebay.

In Europe we have 220V outlets, I know you have 120V. Will the speakers work normally here, or I must use a converter?

You'll need a converter. 

Check with klipsch to see if they offer a version set up for European voltages.

Yes may need a step converter.

May want to consult with the seller as he could offer one in package, if he ships out of country...For your electronics...🚨

Yes use a good surge protector...

It should help. If you have cable/satellite outdoor antenna make certain the protector has loop through for those cables.

By the way take it that your inside electronics for entertainment are 220 volt also. So, no converter would be needed unless plugging into 120 volt... thanks!

Of course, some units are 120/ 220 volt switchable. Always proceed with caution in any case.

That is not enough information to get us to a specification.  Can you tell us more, please? Particularly regarding the subwoofer.

 

Reviewing the Klipsch website I note that most 5.1 collections are just five (5) speakers to attach to your home theater amplifier / receiver (with one caveat of  the 0.1 subwoofer).  Therefore if that is set up for your mains, things are okay. 

 

The caveat is the subwoofer 0.1 included in the collections.  The sub contains its own amplifier which is connected to the mains and therefore must be compatible with that higher voltage --- or a step-down transformer is needed (dropping mains 240 volts down to American spec 110-120 mains volts).  

 

I've looked at the photos of some Klipsch subs and notice that the voltage input from the mains is listed at the back plate as being 110 to 240 volts.  You must check what you have of course.  But that means the power supply for the  internal amplifier in the sub is designed to adjust to the various mains voltage.  All you will need in theory is the correct plug connector to go into your wall outlet.  Some have a wireless transmitter and that must be considered too.  It probably has a "wall wart" transformer.

 

Please do confirm this with a dealer or whoever is selling you these items.  If there is a failure you'll need someone to address the situation. $$$$
