Overview: The Klipsch Quintet (5th generation) bundles four satellite
speakers and a center-channel speaker together. Two of the satellite speakers
serve as front left & right main channels, while the other two satellite
speakers operate as rear surrounds. The magnetically-shielded center channel
delivers crisp dialogue and precise imaging. Regardless of where you put it, the
system has a clean, modern appearance that blends nicely with any décor. It
features a satin black finish and black cloth grilles; a color scheme that
beautifully complements today's flat-panel TVs.
Optional Powered Sub: The Quintet speaker package has an overall frequency
response of 110 to 23,000 Hz and will require a powered subwoofer (sold
separately) for full-range sound. Check out these
powered subs from Klipsch.
Tractrix Horn Technology: Each Quintet loudspeaker employs a 90° x 90°
Tractrix Horn designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main
listening area, without generating excessive reflected sounds that reduce
overall sound clarity. Instead of simply adding a basic tweeter waveguide like
some competitive models, the proprietary Tractrix curve at the horn's mouth
functions as a more sophisticated waveguide, reducing reflections both into the
main listening area and reflections back to the guide itself, for a more
detailed sound with superior vocal clarity. Additionally, horn-loading creates
the exclusive benefits of higher efficiency (more sound output with the same
power input for truly big sound ), much lower distortion (to reveal even the
smallest sonic details not even heard in other designs) and increased dynamic
range (which produces a more lifelike, exciting sound at any volume level.
Aluminum Tweeter: Combined with the Tractrix Horn; the lightweight,
responsive, aluminum diaphragm 0.75" tweeter works with a precise phasing plug
at the horn's throat to create a highly efficient driver with excellent
transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension
assures the most precise diaphragm excursion, further increasing high-frequency
detail and balance.
Long-Throw IMG Woofers: All the Quintet loudspeakers feature
long-throw IMG (injected molded graphite) 3.5" woofers. These woofers are
lightweight, yet very stiff and are matched with large motor structures for
maximum controlled excursion that creates a more balanced bass output. The four
satellite loudspeakers feature one IMG woofer, while the center-channel speaker
is fitted with two IMG woofers.
Crossover Network: The tweeter and woofer are complimented
by a new, "audiophile" quality crossover network which mates those two drivers
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Quintet loudspeakers employ a bass reflex
enclosure with a single rear-firing port for greater bass response and higher
AcoustaComp Cabinets: The entire Quintet surround system (4 satellite
speakers and a dedicated center channel) uses cabinets composed of professional
grade AcoustaComp composite materials. AcoustaComp is a material that is
naturally dense, rigid and acoustically inert, with a uniquely exquisite finish.
This specialized material, formed into Quintet's speaker cabinets with
non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is truly the next
generation in compact home speaker technology.
Detachable Grilles: Each speaker comes with a black cloth detachable
Spring-Post Terminals: Each Quintet loudspeaker is fitted
with a pair of spring-post terminals which will accept bare wire (up to 14AWG)
Color-Coded: The speaker terminals are color-coded
(red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Rubber Feet: The Quintet satellite & center-channel
speakers come with self-adhesive rubber feet (4 each) so you can sit the speaker
on a stand, table or shelf safely and securely.
Wall Mountable: The Quintet satellite & center-channel
speakers feature keyhole slots on the back of the cabinet for wall-mounting the
speakers without any additional wall-mount bracket (mounting screws not
supplied). There is also a 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the back of each
loudspeaker for mounting the speakers to the wall using an optional articulating
bracket (sold separately). Each satellite speaker features a single keyhole slot
and one 1/4"-20 threaded insert. The center-channel speaker features dual
keyhole slots and two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts.
Note: Each threaded insert is recessed 0.225" behind a keyhole
