About the KLH Beacon

Experience true surround sound with dipole speakers

Want spectacular sound effects from your new KLH home theater system? Then use a pair of the Beacons for your surround channels. These specially designed dipole speakers use a pair of opposite-firing, out-of-phase woofers and tweeters in each cabinet. This gives you a diffuse soundfield — perfect for immersive, wraparound sound effects that fill your listening area.

Experience true surround sound with dipole speakers

Want spectacular sound effects from your new KLH home theater system? Then use a pair of the Beacons for your surround channels. These specially designed dipole speakers use a pair of opposite-firing, out-of-phase woofers and tweeters in each cabinet. This gives you a diffuse soundfield — perfect for immersive, wraparound sound effects that fill your listening area.

Voice-matched drivers for seamless sound

Each Beacon houses a pair of 5-1/4 woven Kevlar® woofers, along with a pair of 1" anodized aluminum tweeters — the same drivers KLH uses in their bookshelf and floor-standing speakers. This means you get seamless, voice-matched sound as the action moves around you room.

Flexible placement options

You can configure the Beacons as surround speakers placed to the side of your listening area, or as rear surrounds placed behind you. Mount them to a pair of speaker stands, or on your wall using the dual 1/4"-20 threaded inserts on the back of each speaker.

The KLH name lives on

Henry Kloss and his partners founded KLH in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the '50s. Kloss changed the audio industry with innovations like the acoustic suspension loudspeaker, the first-ever full-range electrostatic speaker, and the first high-selectivity table radio.

Today, KLH is headquartered in Noblesville, Indiana. The company's new speaker lineup represents a fresh take on that rich and varied KLH legacy.

Great Surrounds Create an Immersive Experience!

Crutchfield customer from Centennial, CO on 6/12/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these along with the KLH Kendall towers and KLH Story center and finally have the system up in running in our new house. I've got everything hooked up to a Denon X3500H and calibrated the system with the Audessy mic that came with the AVR. The Beacons are easily the best surrounds I've heard. I'm new to dipole speakers and KLH, but I'm hearing more detail out of these than my previous system and the surround effect seems more encompassing than the surrounds of my old system that were aimed directly at listeners ears. They are very well built and look great. The system as a whole sounds phenomenal so not a single complaint here. Highly recommended!

Product Research

Features

Two-Way Surround Loudspeaker: The KLH Beacon is a two-way surround loudspeaker featuring twp high performance 1" Anodized Aluminum tweeters with linear response faceplates and two 5.25" Woven Kevlar mid/bass drivers with butyl rubber surrounds and powder-coated die-cast aluminum baskets. There are braided tinsel leads on all drivers. A custom multi-element crossover with high grade components ensures smooth and natural transition between drivers.

Acoustic Suspension MDF Enclosure: The KLH Beacon surround loudspeaker uses an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for tight, accurate sound reproduction. The enclosure features MDF construction with custom designed internal low resonance driver chambers and bracing optimized through finite element analysis. The enclosure also has a brushed aluminum tweeter faceplate and driver fascia. The MDF enclosure is finished in a wood-grain black oak vinyl.

Applications: The KLH Beacon can be used as Surround and/or Surround Back speakers in a 5.1ch or 7.1ch home theater system. The Beacon surround speakers are sonically matched to work seamlessly with all other KLH speakers, and will deliver optimum performance in all home theater applications.

  • Placement Options: The placement of your surround speakers is very important in regard to home theater usage. The surround speakers complete the theater listening experience with ambient effects that put the listener in the middle of the action. The Beacon surround speakers can be placed behind or to either side of the main listening area.
  • Mounting Options: The KLH Beacon includes a 1/4"-20 threaded insert for using an optional wall-mount bracket (sold separately). You can also choose to place the surround speaker on stands or shelves. The included self-adhesive rubber feet add approximately 0.25" to the overall height of the speaker.

Binding Post Terminals: The KLH Beacon surround loudspeaker is outfitted with a set of nickel-plated binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only). A plastic cap must be removed from each binding post terminal to use banana plugs.
