Get great sound without sacrificing premium floor space. The Klipsch® R-1650-W features a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer for great mids and bass, plus a 1" dome tweeter for clear highs. You can mount the R-1650-W in new or existing walls, so you can install it in places where you've always wanted music, but where conventional speakers may not be the best option. These speakers are ideal for kitchen, dining room and bedroom use. Plus they match beautifully with regular Klipsch speakers as part of a home theater system. Moisture resistance delivers more flexibility so the R-1650-W can even be used in places like a bathroom or sauna. And you can paint the grille to blend seamlessly into any room's décor.

An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the R-1650-W in new construction (or a room that's undergoing major renovation).

    Mounting Options


    Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker employs a 6.5" polymer-cone woofer and a large motor structure for high sensitivity and strong bass output. A 1" polymer-dome tweeter distributes smooth, clear highs over a wide area. The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker brings dynamic acoustic performance to both home and commercial environments.

    Basket/Frame: The R-1650-W has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor (a clear paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers from overspray). The aluminum mesh grille is also paintable.

    Spring-Clip Terminals: The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker features two spring-clip terminals which will accept either bare speaker wire or pin-connectors. The spring-clip speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

    Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 35 watts RMS (140 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 70 watts.

    Mounting Options

    Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout of 8" (w) x 13" (h), with a mounting depth of 3". For new construction, purchase of the IK-650-W installation kit (714IK650W) is highly recommended. For existing construction, the speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.
