About Klipsch RP-500SA Speakers
For those circumstances where in ceiling speakers just aren't an option but you're craving the immersive experience that is Dolby Atmos, elevate your surround sound experience with the Klipsch RP-500SA Dolby Atmos Elevation speakers.
Here's your ticket to thrilling surround sound effects. The Reference Premiere Series RP-500SA surround speakers feature proprietary Klipsch speaker technologies designed to work with Dolby Atmos soundtracks to re-create an immersive, high-impact listening experience.
Not familiar with Dolby Atmos? It's the latest surround sound technology from the movie-and-theatre-sound experts at Dolby Laboratories. It adds a height dimension to your home theatre, for enhanced immersion and spatial effects. From the soft patter of a gentle rain to the roar of a jet plane flying overhead, you'll enjoy dynamic surround sound that elevates your entire home theatre.
Bounce Sound Off The Ceiling For Enhanced Surround Effects: How do these speakers work? Each features a Cerametallic™ 133mm (5.25") woofer and a Hybrid Tractrix® 25mm (1”) horn tweeter on the top of the speaker. These drivers are angled and feature controlled dispersion, so they can reflect sound off of your ceiling and back down to your listening positions. The RP-500SA speakers are designed to sit on top of your existing floor-standing speakers. Use a pair with your front floorstanding speakers, or add another pair to the rear surround floorstanders for an even more enveloping experience. The RP-500SA can also be wall-mounted for use as standard, high-performance surround sound speakers.
Klipsch Design Philosophy: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-500SA’s delivers on Klipsch's speaker design philosophy; low distortion, high efficiency, flat frequency response, broad dynamic range, and controlled directivity.
Tractrix Horn Technology: Klipsch Tractrix Horn technology allows the RP-500SA speaker to meet the directivity and sensitivity specifications that Dolby requires for Dolby Atmos enabled speakers. This is what has allowed Klipsch to produce its unique two-way speaker and horn-loaded design, in a Dolby Atmos enabled speaker.
Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-500SA features proprietary Hybrid Tractrix Horn technology coupled with Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter to produce the most effective release of sound waves for clean, natural listening experiences. The horn's outer layer is silicone-based rubber, which eliminates resonance of the horn housing, improving detail and resolution. The LTS tweeter ensures minimized distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
90°x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn: A redesigned Tractrix Horn utilizes a circular horn throat paired to a square horn mouth to further improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics. The compressed molded rubber construction adds high frequency damping to reduce harshness and improve detail. This creates the cleanest, most natural sound possible. These 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horns provide a wider sweet spot while maintaining controlled directivity of the sound.
LTS Tweeter: Behind the Tractrix Horn lies a 1" titanium tweeter with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound. The Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
Crossover Network: The Klipsch RP-500SA speaker's crossover network is constructed using extremely high-quality components including top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an air-core inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration. The speaker's enhanced crossover frequencies offer smoother on-axis and off-axis integration.
Sealed MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch RP-500SA employs an acoustic suspension enclosure for tight accurate bass. The sealed enclosure features a MDF cabinet finished with a premium wood-grain polymer veneer and a polymer front baffle. The speaker's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can colour the sound.
Cerametallic Woofer: The 5.25" woofer of the RP-500SA loudspeaker feature Klipsch's distinctive, copper-coloured Cerametallic material. Made with an anodized aluminium, this cone is strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts its inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range. The woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability. A design that when paired with the Tractrix Horn-loaded LTS tweeter combines for incredible high efficiency.
Magnetic Grille: The Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker features a removable magnetic low-diffraction grille which easily snaps into place over its polymer front baffle.
Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-500SA is equipped with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.
Rubber Feet: The Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker features four integrated rubber feet so you can sit the speakers on top of your existing loudspeaker securely. The top of your loudspeaker needs to be flat and measure at least 173mm wide x 284mm deep.
Wall Mounting: The Klipsch RP-500SA speaker features a single keyhole slot on the back of the cabinet for wall-mounting the speaker without any additional wall-mount bracket (mounting screws not supplied).
