Klipsch has added a second soundbar, the $800 R-20B, to its Reference Series. The system includes a two-way soundbar that uses two 0.75-inch dome tweeters coupled with Klipsch's Tractrix Horns and four 3-inch woofers, plus a wireless subwoofer with a 10-inch side-firing driver. The soundbar supports Bluetooth streaming with aptX and Dolby Digital decoding. The R-20B is available now.
Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, today announces the launch of its Reference R-20B soundbar. 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 two-way soundbar boasts premium drivers: two lightweight ¾-inch horn-loaded textile dome tweeters for distinctive high-frequency detail and four 3-inch polypropylene 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 control dispersion in the main listening area. Included with the soundbar is a 10-inch side-firing wireless subwoofer that is housed in an MDF cabinet with a slot-port design for a deep, powerful bass.
The Reference R-20B soundbar is compatible with most Bluetooth wireless enabled devices and also offers aptX audio coding technology for lossless, high-quality music streaming. 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. Distinctive Reference copper cones and detailing make the R-20B soundbar a quality statement piece.
The Reference Unity strategy is a global initiative that will align the majority of Klipsch's product offerings under the legendary Reference series. The new approach unifies the speaker and headphone series, making its superior sonic signature attainable to a wider audience at various price points. These tiered levels of home theater speakers, soundbars, and headphones are precision-engineered and meet the brand's high-quality acoustic and design standards.
The Klipsch Reference R-20B soundbar retails for $799.99 (U.S. MSRP) and joins the in-market Reference R-10B soundbar. Both are now available for purchase at authorized retailers and Klipsch.com.
