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.

Great Buy!
Bought these for me rear surround setup. These things have amazing sound throughout the frequencies. Build quality is top notch. Don't be fooled by size, they put out the volume!

For audio lovers
Bought these speakers on crutchfield. Very well built and very clear sound with a lot of dynamics. Paired with a Denon PMA 600, it sounds really great. These speakers don't lie with a "lay back" sound made to please people. You need a good HiFi system to enjoy them, otherwise they will highlight the weakness of your system.

Great addition
Great addition to the small system used in my office. They are used in concert with a 10 inch Klipsch sub and could quite easily overwhelm the room if I really wanted to cut them loose!!

Absolutely Solid
My wife prefers listening to her vinyls, over a Bluetooth speaker. This set replaces an old bookshelf set from an unknown brand. I am no expert in speakers, a buddy, and the internet helped me with the setup. You will need speaker wires and more than likely a good amp, depending on what you are using them for. The sound they produce is top notch. We have tried out all types of music and the speakers make just about anything enjoyable. They got great bass when you need it and the lyrics are just so crisp and clear. The speakers themselves are built to last, they also look great with nice clean finishes. If you aren’t familiar with this type of speaker, don’t be intimidated by the setup. It was easy once I realized how everything works. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone who enjoys listening to music, they make the experience much better.
