Our take on the Klipsch R-2650-CSM

by Marshall Chase
Klipsch

The Klipsch® R-2650-CSM gives you smooth stereo sound coupled with an inconspicuous in-ceiling design. It sports a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer for tight bass, plus two 1" silk dome tweeters for faithful reproduction of both left and right channels of a stereo signal. It easily installs in your ceiling, so it's a great option for places in your home where you want stereo sound, but don't have a lot of space. Put one in your kitchen for background music while preparing meals, or one in your den to fill the room with your favorite tunes when entertaining guests. And you can paint the grille to blend seamlessly into any room's décor.

An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the R-2650-CSM in new construction (or a room that's undergoing major renovation).

    Features

    Overview: This in-ceiling speaker can be used to play stereo from a single speaker, convenient in a location when there is not room for a pair of speakers. The speaker consists of a 6-1/2" Dual-voice coil woofer and two 1" tweeters. Separate left and right channel inputs provide stereo signal in a single speaker application.

    High Efficiency: The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch in-ceiling speakers allows you to get much more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Due to the long speaker wire runs that are common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 92dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.

    Drivers: The R-2650-CSM is equipped with the following drivers:

    • Tweeter: two 1" silk soft dome tweeters
    • Woofer: one 6-1/2" polymer woofer

    Speaker Terminals: The speaker has two pair of spring clips that can accept pin connectors or bare wire up to 12-gauge wire.

    Basket/Frame: The R-2650-CSM 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 metal mesh grille can also be painted.

    Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of 8.145 inches and a depth of 4.456" behind the drywall. For new construction, purchase of the IK-650-C installation kit (714IK650C) is recommended. The speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. It can also be installed in a drop ceiling (typically 2' x 2' or 2' x 4' ceiling tiles). When installing in a drop ceiling, the ceiling tile may need to be reinforced, depending on its size and density. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout. Once the hole is cut, the speaker is placed in the opening and the rotating cams are tightened, allowing you to secure each speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly. The cam extends beyond the mounting surface of the speaker and will accommodate up to 1.4" drywall thickness. When the cams are rotated, each extends 0.926" beyond the 8.145" cutout diameter.

    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.
