KLH Beacon Surround Speakers Overview

One of the most hallowed nameplates in the history of home audio, KLH is back with a full line of new-design speakers – and a rededication to the company’s original mission to deliver an affordable audiophile experience. The Beacons, KLH’s surround speakers, are designed with that same concern for quality and value. If you are building a home theater, the Beacon meshes perfectly with KLH’s full line of front and center speakers. They share the same custom-designed woofer/midrange drivers of woven Kevlar and anodized aluminum dome tweeters, as well as similar crossover circuitry of the highest-quality components. With solid, sturdy MDF cabinetry of real black oak veneer, and a sealed cabinet that employs acoustic suspension principles for clarity and control, the Beacon brings your favorite movies and soundtracks to life.

From the heartland, from the heart

The new KLH, located in the USA’s heartland – Noblesville, Indiana – pays homage to the brand by building incredible value into every speaker. The Beacon surround combines superior materials – woven Kevlar cones with die-cast aluminum baskets, anodized aluminum domes, brushed aluminum faceplates, MDF cabinetry with real wood veneer, top-quality crossover components – with decades of engineering and design experience, to deliver a speaker that looks as good as it sounds, and sounds better than some far more expensive competitors.

Designed to envelop …

To match the sonic signature of the rest of KLH’s speaker line, the Beacon shares many of the components, aimed at angles designed to surround you with pinpoint-accurate effects. Dual 5.25-inch low/midrange drivers are made of woven Kevlar for strength and stiffness and suspended via flexible, durable butyl rubber, in die-cast aluminum baskets with extra powerful magnets for efficiency. And dual 1-inch dome anodized aluminum tweeters are designed for crystal clarity, linear response and maximum dispersion.

… And to harmonize

Custom circuitry, constructed with the highest-grade components, smoothes the crossover frequencies, and separate braced internal chambers help minimize driver interference. The Beacon’s acoustic suspension cabinetry minimizes resonances for tight, clear lower-frequency response. Braided tinsel wiring connects it all together, and together the package offers flat (+/- 3dB) response up to 23kHz.

Extended guarantee

The new KLH is so confident that you will continue to enjoy its products for a long time that it offers an unheard-of 10-year warranty on its entire line.

Looks great, covered or uncovered

The cabinet is finished in genuine black oak veneer. And, while most folks prefer that surround speakers don’t draw undue attention, if you prefer to show off your hardware, just snap off the dual grills and display the Beacon’s fully finished faces and brushed aluminum speaker faceplates.

A brief history of sound

Back in the 1950s and early ’60s, a band of engineers revolutionized the audio world and ushered in the golden age of high fidelity. Among them, possibly the most warmly remembered is Henry Kloss, the K of KLH. An inveterate tinkerer and serial entrepreneur, he also started such influential companies as AR, Advent, Cambridge Soundworks and Tivoli Audio. Kloss is credited with introducing influential innovations from acoustic suspension speakers to Dolby recorders. To honor his memory and dedication to the highest fidelity in all his products, the revamped KLH has named its new speaker line for streets on and around Kloss’ beloved Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in Cambridge, Mass.

I highly recommend KLH speakers. They are a great value!
I'm using the Beacon pr for my side ch because I have a Quincy pr for my rear ch. My Kendall, Story, Albany & Windsor KLH speakers sound great! I've added Albany to my Story center ch.

Is this an active or a passive speaker?
Robert M on May 11, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The KLH Beacon Surround are passive units.
Looking for new size surround sound speakers I have the Polk fxia6 right now with the martinlogan 60xt 35xt 50 XT would this be an upgrade?
U P on Dec 5, 2020
  Thanks for your inquiry. The KLH Beacon Surround is a symmetrical dipole design that provides surround effects from either the side or back wall. They should integrate well with your Martin Logan system.
What wall mount fits these best?
Peter r on Nov 12, 2018
  They will accommodate a standard 1/4' 20 thread, which is fairly common.
