90° X 90° SILICON COMPOSITE HYBRID TRACTRIX HORN
Horn loading maximizes efficiently 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 aluminum shorting rings reduce distortion as well as increased power handling
and the new motor structure improve transit response with more control with
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.
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.
STRONG, FLEXIBLE, REMOVABLE GRILLE
Attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from powerful showstopper to
discrete performance piece.
Cork pads replace rubber bumpers for security on a stand or table.
