Product Information

90° x 90° Silicon Composite Hybrid Tractrix Horn

Horn loading maximizes efficiency and increases detail while focusing high frequencies on the listening area. Proprietary Tractrix® geometry provides the most efficient transfer of high-frequency waves into the listening area. The phase plug and compressed molded silicon face ensure smooth frequency response. When combined, the cleanest, most natural sound possible is created. The second generation increases horn size for a larger soundstage and enhanced directivity.

Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) Titanium Diaphragm Tweeter

The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference lines, making them a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.

Vented Tweeter Design

The vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high-frequency reproduction.

Cerametallic Woofers – All-New Design

A signature feature of the Reference Premiere series, Cerametallic™ woofers are exceptionally rigid and lightweight for minimal distortion and maximum efficiency. New voice coils are 70% larger in diameter resulting in improved power handling and greater cone control for greater linearity and flawless reproduction. New aluminum shorting rings reduce distortion as well as increase power handling and the new motor structure improves transit response with more control, greater speed, and accuracy.

Tractrix Ports

Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the Reference Premiere ports allow for the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet, which reduces port noise for punchier low frequencies. Klipsch Tractrix ports have custom-designed inner flares that help reduce air turbulence entering the port. Less turbulent air helps reduce port noise for cleaner, more powerful bass.

New and Improved Input Panel

Featuring audiophile-grade wire and easily accessible aluminum binding posts for any connection type.

Furniture Grade Materials and Finishes

Finishes include ebony vinyl and walnut vinyl that boast satin painted baffles with a scratch-resistant finish.

Strong, Flexible, Removable Grille

Attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from a powerful showstopper to a discrete performance piece.

Cork Pads

Cork pads replace rubber bumpers for security on a stand or table.

Absolutely amazing upgrade
I love my stereo system. Everybody in my neighborhood knows when it's on . I recently received this front speaker and decided to try it out, see if it could make the sound system even better. I had no idea that it was going to turn out this good. Not only is it louder now, but it's even clearer from even the next room over. I cannot say enough good things about how amazing this brand really is.

Amazing quality
Its a centre channel speaker and is among the klipsch premiere line. I have previously owned klipsch sound system so replacing my centre channel speaker to this was easy and listening to it i could instantly say the dailogue sound was crisper and clearer. The build and the look is amazing with and with out the grille which can be attached magnetically. I highly recommend it.

Superb sound!
My sound setup is significantly better with this rear center speaker. Since it is from Klipsh, I must admit that I was expecting great things from this and it delivered! The voice are crystal clear and at times I start feeling like I am totally immersed in the movie. I noticed right away that the dialogue sound was sharper and crisper. Larger viewing angles are substantially benefited by the much wider dispersion pattern. With a powerful amp, the sound is itself natural and somewhat holographic. Make sure you have adequate space for placing this speaker because it is needs it. With or without the magnetic grille, the construction and appearance are eye catching.

Wow
This speaker is amazing, I have another brand of speaker that’s supposed to be top of the line and this one here blows it out of the water. This speaker is so clear clean and crisp it’s almost as if I’m sitting at the concert in person.

Fantastic quality!
The Klipsch RP 500C II speakers are our new favorite toy! They provide a high fidelity home audio environment that has blown us away. Easy to install and use, they have transformed our home entertainment basement into a theater with the sound it creates. Big fan and already looking at more pieces to add to the house!
