High-impact sound from a bookshelf speaker
Klipsch speakers earn consistently high marks from our CapitalSound.ca customers, which is no surprise. After all, Klipsch has been thrilling music and movie fans alike for almost 70 years. That's why we can't wait for our customers to hear the RP-160M. These bookshelf speakers from Klipsch's latest Reference Premiere Series have what it takes to be an instant classic, thanks to their combination of solid construction and powerful performance. Each cabinet features a 6-1/2" woofer for tight, powerful bass and clear mids, plus Klipsch's signature 1" horn tweeter for crisp, extended, highs. Whether you use a stereo pair for music listening or as the front left and right speakers in your home theater, you can count on the RP-160Ms to deliver exceptional sound.
The Reference Premiere Series difference
Never one to rest on its laurels, Klipsch has been busy refining and improving its designs to create loudspeakers that blow the doors off of its loyal followers' expectations. The new Reference Premiere Series builds on the acoustics and technologies of Klipsch's classic Reference Series, with important enhancements that provide an even more intense listening experience.
Hybrid horn technology for dynamic performance
Horn technology is one of Klipsch's long-standing hallmarks. Flared openings in the speaker cabinet project sound waves toward your listening area and prevent them from simply spilling out in all directions. This design reduces reflections that can color the sound, and boosts dynamics and efficiency for powerful, "front row" sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.
Klipsch's newly designed Hybrid Tractrix® horn features a circular throat around an advanced titanium diaphragm tweeter that transitions into a square 90º x 90º mouth. This unique shape provides a cleaner, more efficient transition of sound waves into your listening space. Compared to previous Klipsch models, this horn design delivers a wider sweet spot with more precise placement of instruments and vocals. Even the horn material itself has been upgraded to molded silicone rubber that helps decrease resonance for smoother, warmer highs.
A horn that can enhance bass, too
Rotating the speaker around and looking at the back, you'll see that instead of the conventional round port tube found on many speakers, Klipsch uses a Tractrix horn-shaped opening for smoother, more efficient airflow in and out of the cabinet. The resulting decrease in air turbulence makes for cleaner, more powerful bass with reduced port noise and low-frequency distortion.
High-tech woofer design
The RP-160M's Cerametallic woofer dishes out smooth midrange and articulate, well-defined bass. Klipsch makes its cone out of specially treated aluminum that's strong yet lightweight to dampen and prevent distortion. With the Reference Premiere Series, Klipsch also gave this woofer a newly developed titanium voice coil former that allows more linear movement for enhanced efficiency, lower distortion, and extended low frequency response.
Build a complete Klipsch system
You can build a great stereo system using the RP-160Ms and a subwoofer, or team them with other Klipsch Reference Premiere speakers for high-impact home theater.
