  • Klipsch's flagship Reference Premiere tower speaker

    Klipsch's Reference Premiere tower speakers are longtime favorites among CapitalSound.ca customers. Their impactful, dynamic sound makes listening to albums and film soundtracks an exciting, involving experience. The beefy RP-8000F II is the largest direct-firing tower speaker in Klipsch's newly updated RP lineup, and it packs a hefty punch. It features dual 8" 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-8000F 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-8000F II. These let you bi-amp or bi-wire your speaker to get the best sound out of it.
