Prepare to be surrounded
High definition movie soundtracks demand a high performance surround speaker, and we're confident the RP-250S from Klipsch's Reference Premier Series is up to the task. After all, Klipsch knows a thing or two about creating exciting cinema sound. You'll find their speakers in movie theaters around the world (and in the homes of thousands of our satisfied customers). Each Klipsch RP-250S surround speaker features two 5-1/4" woofers and two horn tweeters angled apart from each other. This smart design spreads ambient surround effects over a wide area, for a diffuse soundfield that completely envelops your listening room. It also allows this speaker to deliver great Klipsch sound even if you place it in less-than-ideal locations. Use a pair (or two) as your rear speakers for a perfectly voice-matched accompaniment to an all-Klipsch Reference Premiere Series surround sound setup.
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
With its Hybrid Tractrix horns and Cerametallic woofers, the RP-250S is built to effortlessly deliver clear, powerful Klipsch sound.
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 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.
High-tech woofer design
The RP-250S's dual 5-1/4" Cerametallic woofers dish out smooth midrange and articulate, well-defined bass. Klipsch makes its cones 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.
