Product Research

Features

Horn-Loaded Tweeter:

  • The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-240D 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 Woofers:

  • The two 3.5" woofers of the RP-240D 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 woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.

Bass Reflex Enclosure:

  • The horn-loaded tweeter and spun-copper Cerametallic woofers are housed in a bass reflex enclosure with a rear/side firing port for greater efficiency and better midbass performance.
  • The speaker enclosure is made of ABS and features a matte black painted finish.

Wrap-Around Magnetic Grille:

  • The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-240D on-wall loudspeaker comes with a removable, wrap-around cloth magnetic grille which easily snaps into place over the ABS enclosure.

Spring-Post Terminals:

  • The RP-240D 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.

Applications:

  • The RP-240D 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:

  • 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-240D 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).
