Product Research

Features

90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horns: 

  • A redesigned Tractrix Horn utilizes a circular horn throat paired to a square horn mouth to further improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics.
  • The compressed molded rubber construction adds high frequency damping to reduce harshness and improve detail.
  • This creates the cleanest, most natural sound possible.
  • These 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horns provide a wider sweet spot while maintaining controlled directivity of the sound.

LTS Tweeters: 

  • Behind the Tractrix Horn lies a 1" titanium tweeter with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound.
  • The Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.

Cerametallic Woofers: 

  • The two 5.25" woofers of the RP-250F floor-standing loudspeaker features Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored 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 5.25" woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.

Crossover Network: 

  • The Klipsch RP-250F floor-standing speaker's crossover network is constructed using extremely high-quality components including top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an air-core inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration.
  • The speaker's enhanced crossover frequencies (1800Hz) offer smoother on-axis and off-axis integration.

Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure: 

  • The Klipsch RP-250F employs a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing Tractrix port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.
  • Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the all new Reference Premiere bass port allows for the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet  for a clean, powerful low frequency response.
  • The speaker's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound.
MDF Plinth: 
  • The all new satin painted MDF plinth footers of the Klipsch Reference Premiere series floor-standing speakers lend an acoustically sound, authoritative stance when placing the speakers on your wood, tile, or carpeted floors.
Magnetic Grille: 
  • The floor-standing loudspeaker features a removable magnetic low-diffraction grille which easily snaps into place over its polymer front baffle.
Dual Binding Posts: 
  • The speaker has two sets of binding posts connected by jumpers.
  • Using the dual binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers.
  • The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.

Rubber or Spike Feet: 

  • The floor-standing speaker comes with rubber and spike feet. The included rubber feet offer safe placement of the speaker on your tile or hardwood floors.
  • The included optional spikes are intended to increase stability on carpeted floors; spikes are not recommended for hard surfaces.
  • The rubber feet simply stick to the bottom of the speaker's MDF plinth, while the spikes screw into the bottom of the speaker's MDF plinth.
  • The rubber feet add approximately 0.125" of height to the speaker.
  • The spike feet add approximately 0.875" of height to the speaker.

Placement: 

  • The Reference Premiere series floor-standing loudspeakers are designed to perform well in a wide variety of locations but you will get the most out of the speakers by following these simple guidelines.
  • For optimum performance, Klipsch suggests placing the speakers 6'-15'apart.
  • They may also be toed-in slightly for better stereo imaging.
  • The listening position should be approximately 1-1.5x the distance separating the speakers.
  • The floor-standing loudspeakers should be equal distance from the floor and the wall behind them.
  • It can also help to have the left and right speakers at different distances from their nearest side walls.
  • This sort of staggering helps smooth the bass range.
  • The speaker requires a few inches of clearance behind it to allow its port to breathe and will sound best when they are at least two feet from any nearby walls.
