About Klipsch....

OUR TECHNOLOGY THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SOUND

SOUND POWERFUL. SOUND LEGENDARY
KLIPSCH PROFESSIONAL

  • You are here because you're in need of our commercial-grade audio solutions.
  • Cinema, permanent installation or distributed audio - Klipsch Professional series speakers are built to last and are backed by more than 70 years of Klipsch signature acoustic technology and development.

The Four Principles of Klipsch Sound

  • Paul w. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound.
  • They continue to drive the design of every new klipsch speaker, today and tomorrow.

High Efficiency / Low Distortion

  • Klipsch horn technology is highly efficient, providing more accurate sound with less power and less distortion – resulting in louder, cleaner audio. Klipsch’s law: efficiency is inversely proportional to distortion.

Controlled Directivity

  • Klipsch horn technology accurately directs sound to the proper locations, which, in turn, creates a more lifelike soundstage without wasting acoustic energy where sound is not needed or desired.

Wide Dynamic Range

  • The softest sounds are reproduced with remarkable clarity and the loudest sounds are delivered without harshness or distortion – with the greatest possible range between the softest and loudest sounds.

Flat Frequency Response

  • Audio is delivered without frequency bias – no unnatural highs, mids or lows – reproducing recorded sound as accurately as possible without colorization.

Tractrix® Horns

  • Tractrix® horns have for many years been the driving force behind klipsch’s stunningly precise acoustics.
  • Featured in every klipsch speaker category, except for headphones and subwoofers, this proprietary technology provides a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power.

Cerametallic Woofers

  • A signature feature on the reference series speakers, klipsch’s cerametallic woofers exhibit a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and superb damping, resulting in a powerful, solid bass foundation.

Wide Dispersion Surround Technology

  • As the cornerstone of every klipsch surround speaker, proprietary wide dispersion surround technology (wdst) provides astounding sonic detail for rooms with less-than-ideal placement configurations.

1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA floorstanding loudspeaker features a 1" Titanium LTS Vented Tweeter with a Hybrid Tractrix Horn for exceptional high frequency response, detail, and dispersion.
  • Klipsch proprietary Tractrix horn-loaded technology ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-8060FA floorstanding speakers are aimed directly at the listener and reduces unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls - meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.

Titanium LTS Vented Tweeter: 

  • The titanium tweeter diaphragm's light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of aluminum, polymer or silk tweeters.
  • A vented tweeter design reduces standing waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency reproduction.
  • Klipsch award-winning Linear Travel Suspension technology leverages a piston motion of the titanium diaphragm that lowers distortion and delivers real-to-life sound.
  • A ceramic magnet housing provides premium performance,

Hybrid Tractrix Horn Technology: 

  • This redesigned 90°x90° Hybrid 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 Hybrid Tractrix Horn's compressed molded silicon face adds high frequency damping to reduce harshness and horn resonance for a smoother frequency response with improved detail - creating a clean and natural sound.
  • Klipsch also utilizes computer modeled phase plugs that act as a mechanical filter to further ensure a smooth, flat frequency response while protecting the tweeter from damage.

Dual 8" Cerametallic Woofers: 

  • The RP-8060FA floorstanding loudspeaker utilizes two 8" Klipsch Proprietary Cerametallic woofers.
  • Cerametallic consists of extremely light, rigid materials that can hold shape while being able to deliver lower frequencies with maximum efficiency.
  • The Klipsch Cerametallic cone is matted to a dual-layer, copper-wound voice coil for exceptional conductivity.
  • The 8" woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that's secured to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion.

Power Handling: 

  • The RP-8060FA's main front channel, consisting of one 1" Tractrix horn-loaded titanium tweeter and two 8" Cerametallic woofers, can handle up to 150 watts continuous (RMS) and 600 watts max (Peak).
  • The R-8060FA's up-firing Dolby Atmos channel, consisting of one 1" Tractrix horn-loaded titanium tweeter and one 6.5" Cerametallic woofer, can handle up to 75 watts continuous (RMS) and 300 watts max (Peak).

Rear Tractrix Port: 

  • The rear Tractrix port of the RP-8060FA floorstanding loudspeaker is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofer, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion and turbulence even at the lowest 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.

MDF Cabinet: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA floorstanding speaker features a MDF cabinet with a scratch-resistant, textured wood grain vinyl that seamlessly integrates into almost any room or decor.
  • The enclosure's reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy.
  • The MDF enclosure also features a satin painted baffle with a scratch resistant design for an elegant look without the grille.

Acoustically Transparent Grille: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA floorstanding loudspeaker comes with a removable, black cloth grille that is magnetic and acoustically transparent.
  • This strong magnetic grille provides protection and a sleek aesthetic look to compliment your home's decor.

Binding Posts: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA is outfitted with two sets of binding posts for the front speaker channel and one set of binding posts for the height (elevation) speaker channel.  
  • These sturdy binding posts ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors.
  • The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-lugs and bare wire (up to 10AWG).
  • Two plastic caps will need to be removed to use banana plugs.

Front Channel: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA is fitted with two sets of binding posts for the front speaker channel, allowing to bi-amp or bi-wire the floorstanding loudspeaker.
  • The front speaker channel binding posts will need to be connected to your AV receiver's main front speaker outputs.
  • If you decide to bi-wire or bi-amp, you must remove the jumpers between the terminal posts (failure to do this could result in damage to your amplifier and loudspeakers).

Bi-Wiring: 

  • Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers.
  • Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier (the upper set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the lower set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers).

Bi-Amping: 

  • Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion.
  • We recommend that your separate amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.
Height Channel: 
  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA is also fitted with a set of binding posts for the height (elevation) speaker channel.
  • The height (elevation) speaker channel binding posts must be connected to your AV receiver's Dolby Atmos effects speaker outputs.
  • The speaker terminals are placed low on the cabinet for convenience and an unobtrusive connection.

Cast Aluminum Stabilizer Feet: 

  • The Klipsch floorstanding loudspeaker includes pre-installed, cast-aluminum stabilizer feet with rubber pads for safe placement on hardwood, tile, laminate, and vinyl flooring.
  • The cast aluminum feet are mechanically designed to minimize surface area in contact with the floor, decoupling the speaker for faster, tighter low frequencies and more detail.
  • No carpet spikes are included, and the speaker will not support optional carpet spikes or other type of feet.

Note: 

  • Do not remove the stabilizer feet.
  • The Klipsch floorstanding loudspeaker should not be used without the stabilizer feet due to stability and sound performance reasons.

Application & Placement: 

  • The Klipsch RP-8060FA floorstanding loudspeaker can be used in a dedicated stereo application or in a home theater application as front and/or rear speakers.

Front Placement: 

  • For optimum performance in a stereo application or as front speakers in a home theater application, Klipsch suggests placing the loudspeakers 6' to 15' apart.
  • They may also be toed-in slightly for better stereo imaging.
  • The listening position should be about 1 to 1.5x the distance separating the speakers.

Rear Placement: 

  • When used as surround speakers in a home theater setup, the speakers should be placed on the walls directly adjacent to the listening position.
  • Another option would be on the wall behind the listening position.

Reference Premiere Series: 

  • The Klipsch Reference Premiere series utilizes a redesigned hybrid 90°x90° Tractrix Horn, a vented LTS titanium tweeter, Cerametallic woofer construction, and Tractrix geometry port technology for sound that will envelope you and blow you away.
  • The Reference Premiere series by Klipsch consists of a variety of floorstanding, bookshelf, center, and surround speakers (all sold separately).
