High Performance Speaker Design:
The Klipsch KMC 3 combines a 2.1ch speaker system, bass-reflex enclosure,
130-watt (peak) bi-amped digital amplification, and advanced DSP equalization
for accurate reproduction of all music types. Dual 2" full-range
aluminum drivers, internally chambered to minimize distortion, provide a clean
and highly balanced sound up to 24kHz. A unique tuned dual-flare port system
combines with the built-in 5.25" long-throw woofer for deep bass down to 40Hz. A
15-watt x 2-channel digital amp powers the dual full-range drivers, while a
35-watt digital amplifier powers the subwoofer. The KMC 3 also employs advanced
DSP equalization for lifelike, dynamic sound at any volume level.
Built-in Bluetooth w/ AptX: The Klipsch KMC 3 features built-in Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP technology
which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple
iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, or laptop/computer.
You'll be able to stream stored music or music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled
device and control playback from the included remote control. AptX audio coding
technology allows for lossless, audiophile-quality streaming. The unit can be
paired with up to 8 devices (only one can be used at a time). Once paired, the KMC 3 will automatically
re-connect to the last device used.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Klipsch KMC 3.
The included IR remote control operates the system's volume up/down and muting.
The remote also supports basic playback functions of your Bluetooth streamed
music, such as Play/Pause and Track Forward/Reverse.
Auxiliary Input: The
Klipsch KMC 3 is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input to connect virtually any
portable audio device with a headphone output.
USB Charging Port: The KMC
3 features a USB (type-A) port used to charge your smartphone or other
audio device. This USB port does not support audio playback. You can choose to
power your device using either AC or battery power. However, charging with
battery power will reduce battery life. If batteries are already weak, the USB
connection will not charge your device.
Integrated Carry Handle: The integrated carry handle lets you easily
move the KMC 3 room to room or take it anywhere with you.
Power Requirements: The
Klipsch KMC 3 operates off of AC or DC power. Simply plug the included AC power
adapter and cord into an AC wall outlet for AC power. The KMC 3 also operates
off of DC power using eight "D" batteries (sold separately). You get 26 hours of
playback time at moderate volume and 8 hours of playback at maximum volume.
