Klipsch Debuts $400 R-4B Soundbar

By |


Klipsch-R4-B.jpgKlipsch has introduced a new lower-priced soundbar system, called the R-4B, that combines a two-way soundbar and 6.5-inch wireless subwoofer. The R-4B soundbar uses dual 2.5-inch midrange fiber composite woofers and two lightweight 0.25-inch horn-loaded textile dome tweeters coupled with Klipsch-exclusive Tractrix Horns. The system features optical digital, stereo analog, and USB inputs, as well as Bluetooth. It is available now.

From Klipsch
Klipsch has announced the launch of its Reference R-4B soundbar and wireless subwoofer. The same advanced acoustic engineering and industrial design from the brand's original Reference home theater line inspires the performance, voice and design of the soundbar.

"The R-4B soundbar delivers Klipsch's legendary power and performance at a lower price point, which appeals to a wide audience. It offers users the conveniences of plug n' play audio and instant streaming using Bluetooth wireless technology and new listening modes significantly enhance the listening experience that is lacking in flat panel TV's today," said Steve Jain, VP and GM of Digital, Streaming and Portable Audio Solutions at Klipsch.

The two-way soundbar boasts premium drivers, two lightweight 0.25-inch horn-loaded textile dome tweeters for distinctive high-frequency detail and two 2.5-inch midrange fiber composite woofers that round out the enhanced sound with crisp vocal and dynamic soundtracks. Its tweeters are coupled with Klipsch-exclusive Tractrix Horns to reduce distortion and increase dispersion more directly to the main listening area. Included with the soundbar is a 6.5-inch down-firing wireless subwoofer that is housed in an MDF cabinet with a slot-port design for deep, powerful bass. The subwoofer pairs automatically with the soundbar given its sophisticated wireless technology. At just 3.5 inches tall and 40 inches wide, it sits comfortably under most television screens, not obstructing the view or the infrared signal from the TV's remote.

The Reference R-10B soundbar is compatible with most Bluetooth wireless enabled devices. The included programmable remote has three listening modes for optimal enjoyment: virtual surround, night EQ and voice enhancement EQ. Its Dolby Digital Decoder allows the soundbar to automatically reproduce detailed, high-quality sound no matter what format of sound is coming from the TV's output.

Removable feet and included keyhole mounts provide placement flexibility for the soundbar to be mounted to a wall or rest in front of the TV.

The Klipsch Reference R-4B soundbar retails for $399.99 (US.MSRP) and is now available for purchase at authorized retailers and Klipsch.com.
