Klipsch Adds Architectural Speakers to Its Reference Premiere Line

By |


Klipsch-PRO-180RPW.jpgKlipsch has introduced the new Professional Series Reference Premiere Architectural line, which includes five models: three in-wall speakers and two in-ceiling speakers. These speakers utilize many of the same design features as Klipsch's Reference Premiere freestanding speakers, such as Cerametallic woofers and titanium dome tweeters with Tractrix horns and silicon composite coating. The speakers use Klipsch's proprietary SecureFit two-piece modular installation system, with paintable, magnetic, bezel-free grilles. The Professional Series Reference Premiere Architectural line is sold exclusively by custom integrators.

Klipsch announces the addition of the premium Professional Series Reference Premiere Architectural speakers designed exclusively for the professional custom integrators. The all-new high-performance lineup combines the aesthetics of an architectural speaker with the same award-winning acoustics as its Klipsch Reference Premiere home theater component speaker counterparts.

The Klipsch Professional Series Reference Premiere Architectural speaker line is made up of five speakers--three in-wall models (PRO-160RPW, PRO-180RPW, and PRO-250RPW LCR) and two in-celling models (PRO-16RPC, PRO-180RPC). The series was designed to reproduce legendary Klipsch Reference Premiere acoustics and utilizes core components of the line. Tractrix horns provide controlled directivity of high frequencies for more dynamic, detailed sound with higher efficiency, while a silicon composite coating reduces high frequency resonance for smoother, flatter frequency response. Titanium dome tweeters minimize distortion and deliver enhanced, detailed performance, and Cerametallic woofers allow for exceptional efficiency and powerful low frequencies.

The new proprietary SecureFit two-piece modular installation system creates a more robust, stable acoustic platform for the speakers. It enables a quick and easy one-person installation solution and allows for dog legs to be engaged by hand to a preset clamping force. This eliminates the possibility of breaking the dog leg or cracking the drywall. Machine screws secure the speaker module, as opposed to traditional drywall screws, thus reducing the baffle vibration by up to 40 percent.

Extra attention to detail allows the Professional Series Reference Premiere speakers to blend seamlessly into any environment. The flat, paintable, magnetic grilles are bezel-free, and in-ceiling models include both round and square grilles to fit any interior design. A magnetic paint shield protects the SecureFit installation frame and speaker from paint or dust during construction or renovations.

"This premium series is the first of four new custom-install speaker lines that Klipsch will introduce this year," said Rob Standley, vice president and GM of component audio solutions. "We are excited to showcase approximately 30 new speaker solutions at CEDIA (Klipsch booth 4110) in September. This good, better, best model is available exclusively to our network of custom integrators as they provide the best installation, value, and experience to consumers," he continued.
