The Bass That’s Got Your Back
Klipsch has done it again. The RP-440C is a striking, high-quality piece of equipment that will enhance your home theater experience. Klipsch offers three options in their Reference Premiere line for center channel speakers. In terms of performance, the RP-440C is the “baby bear” of the group. It is not too big, nor too small; not too much power, but just enough. It is just right, achieving lower frequency, higher sensitivity, and covering a larger area than its smaller, more basic counterpart, while being more compact than its big brother. Whether you are making additions or upgrades to your existing setup or just starting to put together your first home theater system, we’ve got your back – and your center.
Love at First Sight
Upon first glance of the RP-440C, we were struck by how beautiful this speaker is. Even knowing absolutely nothing about sound systems, it is easy to be taken in by the four gleaming spun copper cones set against the deep, matte black facing. The cabinet panels are constructed from MDF for a lightweight, yet sturdy, durable design. It is coated with a brushed polymer veneer baffle finish, coming in two different colors: black or cherry. The black finish furthers the sleek, striking look, bringing the copper cones to an even more outstanding presence. The cherry, while still as sleek as its black counterpart, has a warmer, more elegant appearance. Either can be incorporated into contemporary or classic décor to suit your needs.
The removable grille adds another touch of personalization. While the bright copper provides an almost showpiece effect, sometimes an unobtrusive presence is preferred. This strong, flexible grille attaches magnetically for a simple switch to suit your mood. After all, it is difficult to immerse yourself in a home theater experience when you can’t stop staring at the speakers!
More than Just a Pretty Face
As difficult as it is to enjoy a full home theater experience with visual distraction, auditory distraction can be decidedly worse. However, you don’t need to worry about that here. Those beautiful spun copper cerametallic woofers do more than just grab your attention (and everyone else’s in the room). Lightweight and rigid, these cones provide minimal breakup and work with the LTS titanium tweeter to effectively minimize distortion.
Let’s not forget about the Tractrix Horn. It is redesigned to incorporate a circular horn throat with a square horn mouth for greater high-frequency response and extension. In order to dampen harshness from the high frequency, Klipsch decided on a compressed molded rubber construction for the horn. The Tractrix Port allows for efficient air transfer from the cabinet. This design provides not only the fastest transfer on the market, but the most powerful low frequency response, as well. In lamens terms, these guys all work together to provide the cleanest, most natural sound available - only Klipsch center channel speakers can deliver this type of audio experience.
What The RP-440C Does for You
No one likes sound delays between the action on the screen and the auditory experience. To keep these linked up, it is important to have a quality center channel speaker that won’t drop the ball. This speaker enables you to clearly hear everything from main screen dialogue, to subtle background noises, allowing you to fully appreciate the nuances of any soundtrack, no matter what is on the screen.
The Klipsch RP-440C is sleek and arresting, yet able to be unobtrusive when desired. It is compact and lightweight while providing optimum functionality. This speaker provides clarity and accuracy along with elegance and beauty. The RP-440C Center Channel Speaker really is the total package wrapped up with four gleaming, spun copper bows.
