Horn loading maximizes efficiency and increases detail while focusing high frequencies towards 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 it 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 on 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.
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.
Bi-Wiring / Bi-Amping Capability
Dual input terminals for bi-wiring / bi-amping capabilities. Bi-wiring separates high and low frequency current into separate speaker cables, reducing intermodulation distortion, for clearer midrange. Bi-amping allows for customization using outboard crossovers when using separate amplifiers.
Advanced Cabinet Design
Additional bracing and a divided cabinet have been added to minimize cabinet resonances and vibration, for the utmost transparency and clarity.
Refined Atmos Connections
Upgrading to Dolby Atmos is extremely easy with the simple and hidden connections located on the back of the speakers. These refined connections reduce the amount of wire seen and hold them in place for better wire management.
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.
Cast Aluminum Feet
Provides a more modern look with less resonance than MDF or ABS plastic. It is mechanically designed to minimize surface area in contact with floor, decoupling the speaker for faster, tighter low frequencies and more detail.
Strong, Flexible, Removable Grille
Attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from powerful showstopper to discrete performance piece.

I hooked these up to a Rotel 1592 MKII integrated amp. They sounded great. The bass and the highs were more than I expected. You really dont need a sub with speakers. The vocals sound life like and the mids where good too. You really dont have to spend crazy amounts of money to be an audiophile. I consider RP-8000f-II a steal at the curent labor day sale price of $599 a piece.
I had an older Reference single floor standing speaker from Klipsch back in 2006-2008 and was very impressed with that. THESE, these are a DREAM, do yourself a favor and change your life, buy and pair w/ a sub.
I couldn't pass up the "Christmas in July" promotion. The RP-8000F II were the final piece in my 5.1 system. Great quality and value. I was a little concerned with shipping given their size, but they arrived in perfect condition. Very well packaged. I'm very pleased. Highly recommended.
Do you love being screamed at? If so then these are the speakers for you. I'm incredibly confused as to why these speakers are so popular with people.
The highs are so aggressive that it feels like you're being screamed at. The mids are near non existent, around the crossover in particular everything is pushed back and distorted. Lows are boomy and unpleasant.
Male vocals below the crossover will sound god awful, female voices above the crossover are crushed and sound like they're coming from a tube. Harmonies sound off, several songs would have ringing sounds each time a harmony kicked in and pull you out of the music. The ringing isn't present on any other speaker I own.
I fell for the hype, hopefully you don't. There are better speakers at a similar price point and nearly every single one is a 3-way speaker.
I have had these speakers now for almost a month. I am slowly building my personal theater set up and these speakers are phenomenal. Great range, clarity and super clean. I have these as my fronts, the rp 504c-II for my center, 2 r-51 m bookshelves as side surrounds and an r-120sw sub. Running them through a denon avr-s540bt receiver. As my initial set up it has been amazing for movies, music and gaming. I can't wait to build on to this system. I want to go with a 9.2.4 set up adding 2 rear surrounds and 4 atmos speakers with another 12 inch sub to wrap it all up for my space. I also plan on adding some external amplifiers to give these speakers their full potential range. Thank you klipsch for what you offer and I will be a customer for life.
I had the Klipsch reference cinema series 5.1.4 system and was looking for something that provided a little more punch. So, I decided to upgrade my front speakers and I elected these bad boys for the fronts. When I made the purchase I was a little worried they wouldn't be worth the investment but the very first song I listened to with these things instantly squashed that worry. I'm using the built in bi-amping option on my Pioneer A/V receiver to power these monsters with two channels of juice and wow do they slap. They don't need a sub in my opinion. For movie watching, absolutely get a sub, but for stereo music these things stand alone like champions.
I paired these speakers with a 10" Klipsch subwoofer to create an amazing sound. The highs and lows are superb, and listening to familiar songs has them sounding new and fresh as all the nuances of the music are now clear. I am super happy with this purchase.
I could have gone with Polk, SVS or Arendel for about the same amount of money. I chose I chose Klipsch because I just like the way they sound, they look impressive, have very good build quality, and are an excellent value (especially when they are on sale). I read many positive reviews and am really happy with my purchase. In the picture I uploaded, I was upgrading the center channel from the RP-600C to the RP-504C. Both center channel speakers sound really good but the wider 4 driver setup of the RP-504C gave a bit more room filling dispersion for listeners that are not directly in front of the TV. These speaker sound fantastic for music, movies and even video games. I highly recommend the RP series if you are looking to upgrade your listening entertainment.
Although it may not be a fair comparison, these speakers replaced my Klipsch R51s as my main fronts. Needless to say these speakers are phenomenal! The frequency response, clarity, presence, accuracy, separation, and efficiency are unmatched. I am listening to music and movies as if it is the first time I've heard them. The ability of these speakers to reproduce the nuances of music is in actuality unheard of before. Even my non audiophile friends appreciate the masterful sound. Beyond a worthwhile upgrade and HIGHLY recommended for any discerning listener.
I upgraded my home theater. I added 2 RP-8000F II speaker for the front. I added 2 RP500ASII Altmos on top of the RP-8000F'S , then a RP504CII center speaker and 2 RP8060FA's with Altmos for the rears. I got a new Marantz Cinema 50 AVR. The system sounds fantastic.
These speakers have been nothing short of incredible! After more than a year of research we finally decided to pull the trigger and we COULT NOT be HAPPIER! The sounds is incredible, there were just listening to music or watching a movie with our full ATMOS system running. They also look stunning! 10/10 recommend
Very clear without being honky. Not using a sub-woofer and bass is excellent. I've been listening to modern recordings of Jazz, some classical, Heavy Meatal (Iron Maiden-Senjutsu) and recent Steve Hackett recordings and using an Onkyo 6050 receiver in stereo, no surround. Highs and mids clear and articulate, Low mids and high bass not muddy and super lows very filling and quite tight. All being played from a PC with a Cambridge DAC. WAV and Amazon Prime/Spotify streaming. Phono sounds great as does the radio. We have an antennae to help the radio signal. Reproduction is excellent across the spectrum while keeping the tone/EQ flat. The room is already fairly flat.
Best speakers i have ever purchased. I originally purchased a pair of RF 820's but they didn't have the sound i was wanting. Returned them and bought a pair of RP 8000 II's. WOW!!! I was blown away at the sound quality the RP 8000 II's put out. Highly recommend to others.
So one year ago I purchased a RP-504C and the wife loved it. So this time I have added a pair of RP-8000F II and all I can say is OMG!! I Put them through their paces. Quiet and loud, symphony, T-Rex roars, trains, movie introductions, etc. These are without a doubt the best speakers I have ever owned. The clarity and crispness are beyond impressive across the volume spectrum. Visually they have a look of sophistication but don't let that fool you. These speakers are all business. I can't wait till I can get this up to 7.2!
Great looking and even better sounding. Only regret is that I waited this long to get them. Been eyeing the RP-8000s for a long time. Excited that I finally get to buy and I get to be one of the first to get the RP-8000 IIs. They sound amazing. Crisp highs, great mids. I have a couple paired with an SPL-150 and I can’t stop smiling.
Replaced my older RB-35 bookshelves with these and I'm not disappointed. I was worried for a bit with the stereo performance then switched from LFE to LFE+Main with these and my two Klipsch powered subs, one R12SW and one SPL150 and all I can say is "WOW". The difference is unreal. With lows down to 18hz you feel it in your bones. The experience is so immersive whether a movie or analog stereo you're just right there. A bit pricey but when you're asking for the best you're going to pay for it.
I received these speakers almost a month ago and they are the best speakers I've ever owned. I have them hooked up to a 200 watt yamaha receiver and they sound excellent. From the highs to the lows everything sounds so crisp. I personally didn't expect so much bass from four 8" woofers but wow, these things bump. I have them hooked up to my TV for surround affect and definitely not disappointed. Hands down the best speakers that I've owned.
Got these and hooked them up to a new Sony receiver that is pushing 145 watts per channel and they sound amazing. I was going to get a sub woofer but absolutely no need to as the bass in these is more than ample. I have some older speakers as surround and that combination makes this pair a speakers perfect for a living room that is about 20 x 15. These speakers are super loud with no distortion at high volume levels. LOVE them.
We are not audiophiles but we do appreciate good sound, and these have absolutely delivered that. We setup these speakers in our living room beside the tv and connected them to our reciever. After a little playing with the placement and how they were aimed we sat down to enjoy some music and a movie. We were blown away by how good everything sounded. These made for a huge improvement in our experience, I’m a little disappointed we waited as long as we did. The highs were clear and seemed effortless, the bass was tight and well rounded, however I think I will pair this with a subwoofer in the future to help with the very low frequencies. Overall this was the biggest upgrade we’ve had to our home theater system and we couldn’t be happier
These Klipsch - RP-8000F II (pair of 2) are so awesome!! I love everything abot them, They have such a beautiful and sleek look. The quality and the sound are miles beyond. I am extremely satisfied with these awesomespeakers.
From the materials used to the craftsmanship, these speakers have no competitors. These are the best, top of the line speaker period! The dynamic sound makes listening to music or soundtracks an involving and palpable experience. The woofers accentuate the bass while the horns compliment the high notes, these sound super clear and natural the best high level sound I've heard from a speaker. The bass is room thumping, The mid and highs are beautiful. Clarity and openness first caught my attention. They are very sturdy and quite heavy to manuever. It was easy to hook them up and integrated them with my entertainment system. I've played from different ports and all of them delivery crisp sound quality and distortion free sound that has no match. I use them alone, or with the TV and both input have great sound. These speakers have no power source so you must have a receiver and the wires necessary to hook them up. I highly recommend these speakers.
These speakers are top of the line. I bought them for our entertainment center in our garage. They are top-of-the-line quality and produce phenomenal sound and power. You could host a concert with a set of these. They are pricey but you pay for the quality. Highly reccomend.
These speakers worked great with the receiver we already had. It was easy to hook them up and integrated them into our surround sound. We can use them alone, or with the TV. They have great sound. They are HUGE but well worth the space they take up. We already ordered the matching surround sound speakers and will replace our whole system piece by piece. I recommend these speakers.
Klipsch has done it again! Just when you think their speakers could not get any better they came out with the RP-8000F II model. The speakers are not only stunning to look at they also deliver crisp and distortion free sound. The connections allow you to configure your speakers several different ways and allow for easy addition of more speakers with connections at the top rear of the speaker. The sound quality is absolutely amazing and is unmatched by any other speaker that I’ve owned in the past. I now have theater quality sound in the comfort of my own home! My children also love the experience of their favorite action movies with the ability of these speaker to deliver deep bass, highs, mids, and lows all from this pair of outstanding speakers! I highly suggest the RP-8000F II pair of speakers to anyone who want to have a true home theater experience.
The brand says says it all. This is an amazing speaker. the sound is crisp and clear. its got insane sound. I am totally in love with the sound and quality of these speakers. I would recommend this product to everyone.
These speakers have absolutely fabulous sound to them. Fair extremely easy to hook up and the Bluetooth is also very easy. The sound that comes out of these is insane. I cannot wait to buy more products.
These speakers are exactly what I was looking for! Very musical and detailed, with the "authority" only a larger speaker can deliver - even at low volume. I love the build quality and how they look. I highly recommend!
Finest speakers I have ever owned. Very literally the best speakers I have ever owned. The quality the size. If I could afford the whole setup I would most definitely have the whole setup, but the 2 have our so very nice. The sound the size of the cone. everything about these are great.
I'd just like to start off by saying WOW! These are the best speakers I've ever owned. They are big but they put out an equally big sound. The sound is crisp and clear and are more than loud enough for anyone's theater surround sound needs. Hooking them up was a breeze and they look absolutely amazing! I like how the front panels easily go in place and the darker ebony color looks great in any style room. I would highly recommend these speakers to anyone wanting loud, clear, and crisp sounds for their listening pleasure.
These speakers are definitely high quality. The sound is just incredible. I feel like I’m in a movie theater every time I sit down to watch anything. The sound is crystal clear and shows no signs of distortion as the volume is raised. I could definitely throw a house party with these speakers. These speakers have no power source so you must have a receiver and the wires necessary to hook them up.
