Floor-standing speaker (Walnut)

High-performance sound from Klipsch

Klipsch's Reference Premiere tower speakers are renowned for their dynamic, energetic sound. They're just plain fun to listen to whether they're part of a two-channel stereo system or a full-blown home theater setup. The new RP-5000F II is the smallest, most affordable tower in the new Reference Premiere II line. This new-generation tower speaker features two upgraded 5-1/4" woofers for punchy bass and midrange, and a 1" horn-loaded tweeter for clear highs.

Upgraded tweeter and horn

The 1" LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeter features a vented housing to reduce standing waves that can compromise sound quality. The hallmark Tractrix® horn it's housed in has a widened mouth for better soundstaging and directivity. That means a wider "sweet spot" overall and better imaging within that sweet spot. The horn also sports a soft silicone face and a unique phase plug to keep the highs smooth and non-fatiguing.

Under-the-hood driver upgrades

Metallic drivers aren't anything new for Klipsch speakers, but the company has made significant improvements to the motor structures behind the cones. Each woofer has a 70% larger voice coil for greater control, speed, and accuracy. The woofers also have new aluminum shorting rings that help reduce distortion and let the drivers handle some extra power.

A new cabinet for better sound

Klipsch also upgraded the RP-5000F II's cabinet. This go-around, they added additional bracing throughout and divided the cabinet into sections. That helps to reduce sound-altering cabinet resonance and vibration and improves clarity.

The cabinet has two rear-firing Tractrix ports that help deepen the speaker's bass response. Their unique horn shape promotes more efficient airflow in and out of the cabinet, minimizing port noise and low-frequency distortion.

Since this speaker uses a ported cabinet, you don't want to place it up against a wall. Instead, I recommend giving the speaker some "breathing room" by pulling it away from your wall a little. Its bass response will thank you.

Bi-amp or bi-wire for even better sound

There are two sets of binding posts on the back of the RP-5000F II. These let you bi-amp or bi-wire your speaker to get the best sound out of it.
