By |


Klipsch-RF-7-III.jpgKlipsch has added a new passive tower speaker to its Reference Series. The RF-7 III ($1,799 each) features a new 1.75-inch titanium compression driver designed to improve sound pressure linearity at high frequencies, as well as a new Tractrix horn design and dual 10-inch Cerametallic woofers (each in its own chamber). The cabinet is made from furniture-grade wood veneer and comes in black ash, cherry, or walnut, with a magnetic grille. Klipsch has also introduced a new center channel, the RC-64 III ($1,499), that uses the same upgraded driver components.

Klipsch announces the debut of its next generation flagship Reference speakers: the RF-7 III floorstanding speaker and the RC-64 III center channel. The premium speakers are enhanced versions of the company's acclaimed Reference II series, delivering hours of unrivaled high performance listening pleasure.

The Klipsch Reference RF-7 III and RC-64 III speakers are infused with the latest technological audio advancements for ultra-sensitive, hard-hitting, accurate sound. The company was meticulous in selecting an ideal tweeter for the speakers before landing on the new 1.75" titanium compression driver with an enhanced phase plug geometry design that improves sound pressure linearity at high frequencies.

A new Tractrix horn further improves high-frequency response and extension while enhancing imaging and dynamics. Proprietary Cerametallic woofers minimize distortion and, when paired with the Tractrix horn, provide ultra-high sensitivity and the highest efficiency in its class.

The modern design enhancements and upgraded materials used to build the Reference RF-7 III and RC-64 III speakers reinforce their solid performance. Both speakers feature heavy-duty cast aluminum frame woofers that eliminate resonance. Cabinets are made from furniture-grade wood veneers and come in black ash, cherry or walnut. Magnetic grilles complement the premium design experience.

The Reference RF-7 III floorstanding speaker is equipped with a unique dual chambered enclosure design that allows two 10" drivers and ports to work independently of each other. This improves linearity and minimizes anomalies in the critical midrange frequencies, generating a very articulate soundstage. The speaker's slanted riser base enhances the appearance of the speaker, while providing a slight upward angle to direct sound at the listener.

The Reference RC-64 III center channel features four 6.5" woofers, while the sophisticated design of the 2.5-way network crossover maintains wide and even sound distribution so the listener hears the center channel information exactly as intended.

"These speakers have earned the nickname 'fire-breathing monsters' for a reason," said Kerry Geist, product manager at Klipsch Group. "They are the best sounding audiophile speaker at this price point."

The Klipsch Reference RF-7 III (US MSRP $1,799 each) and RC-64 III (US MSRP $1,499 each) speakers are now at select retailers and at Klipsch.com.
