Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-2650-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" silk soft-dome tweeter distributes smooth, clear highs over a
wide area. The Klipsch R-2650-W in-wall speaker brings dynamic acoustic
performance to both home and commercial environments.
Basket/Frame: The R-2650-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-2650-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 50 watts RMS (200 W Peak). Klipsch has also
published a recommended amplifier power specification as 100 watts. For the
purpose of matching the speaker with the best amplifier, Crutchfield is listing
the power specification as 100 watts.
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 3.6875". 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.
IR Knockout: A 1/2" diameter knockout panel is provided in
the lower left hand corner of the speaker frame for installing an IR sensor.
