High-impact bookshelf speakers
The top-of-the-line Klipsch® RB-81 is sure to please music and movie lovers alike with its combination of solid construction and powerful performance. From complex music passages to the demanding soundtrack of an action movie, you'll enjoy exceptionally rich, balanced sound.
Horn technology for dynamic performance
The RB-81 uses a horn-loaded tweeter. A flared opening in the enclosure projects high frequencies toward your listening area and prevents sound waves from simply spilling out in all directions. It's the same principle that makes your voice easier to hear when you cup your hands around your mouth. This horn design brings out details in everything you listen to, while reducing reflections that can color the sound. The horn also improves dynamics and efficiency, for powerful, "front row" sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.
The RB-81's woofer dishes out smooth midrange and articulate, well-defined bass. Klipsch makes the woofer cone out of anodized aluminum, so it's strong yet lightweight. A rigid cabinet with resonance-fighting internal bracing houses both the woofer and the tweeter. It all adds up to remarkably accurate reproduction of all your music and movies.
