Product Research

Horn-Loaded Tweeter:
  • The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-140D features proprietary Tractrix Horn technology coupled with a Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter to produce clean, natural high frequencies.
90° x 90° Tractrix Horn:
  • The Tractrix Horn's geometry helps to improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics.
  • The 90° x 90° Tractrix Horn also focuses the high frequency sounds towards the listening area, for the cleanest, most natural sound possible.
LTS Tweeter:
  • Behind the Tractrix Horn lies a 1" titanium tweeter with a Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) for open, natural, sound.
  • The Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
Spun-Copper Cerametallic Woofer:
  • The 3.5" woofer of the RP-140D loudspeaker features Klipsch's distinctive, spun-copper Cerametallic material.
  • Made with an anodized aluminum, this cone is strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts its inner and outer surfaces to ceramic.
  • The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range.
  • The woofer also employs a rubber surround for added durability.
Bass Reflex Enclosure:
  • The horn-loaded tweeter and spun-copper Cerametallic woofer are housed in a bass reflex enclosure with a rear/side firing port for greater efficiency and better midbass performance.
  • The enclosure is made of ABS and features a matte black painted finish.
Wrap-Around Magnetic Grille:
  • The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-140D on-wall loudspeaker features a removable, wrap-around cloth magnetic grille which easily snaps into place over the ABS enclosure.
Spring-Post Terminals:
  • The RP-140D is equipped with spring-post terminals to connect bare speaker wire from 16AWG to 12AWG. Due to the position of the spring-post terminals they will not accept banana plugs or pin-connectors.
  • The RP-140D on-wall speaker can be used as a front, center, or surround speaker in a home theater setup.
Placement for Front Speakers:
  • For the most spacious sound place a pair of speakers 6' to 15' apart with the listening position about 1-.5x the distance separating the speakers.
  • However, excellent sound can still be achieved by placing these speakers close to both sides of your TV if that is more aesthetically pleasing.
Placement for Center Speaker:
  • Since a center-channel speaker is designed to place dialogue and primary sounds so that they appear to come from the video screen.
  • The speaker should therefore be placed horizontally, as close to the screen as possible, preferably at least 1" directly below the screen.
Placement for Rear speakers:
  • As rear surrounds, a pair of speakers should be placed approximately 2' above the listening position (typically this will be about 5'-7'above the floor.
  • The surrounds should be placed on the walls directly adjacent to the listening position or on the wall behind the listening position.
Mounting Options:
  • The RP-140D on-wall loudspeaker can be mounted vertically or horizontally when wall-mounted or attached to the included table-top base.
  • Dual four-way keyhole slots allow for easy, tight-to-the-wall mounting (mounting screws not included).
  • The included glass base provides a table-top solution for placing the speaker on a stand, table, or shelf (the base attaches to the speaker using the two included screws when the speaker is mounted vertically and only one screw when the speaker is mounted horizontally).
