Features

All-Weather Construction: With its UV-resistant ABS enclosure, rust-proof aluminum grille, and powder-coated aluminum bracket, the Klipsch KHO-7 outdoor loudspeaker is designed to perform consistently under the harshest of conditions. the Klipsch KHO-7 is the perfect solution for outdoor sound on the patio, deck, porch, or by the pool. The ABS speaker enclosure, aluminum grille, and powder-coated bracket can all be painted.

2-Way Driver Design: The KHO-7 produces lifelike sound through its 5.25" poly cone woofer and a 1" silk dome compression driver tweeter loaded with an exclusive Klipsch 90º x 40º Tractrix Horn. This advanced horn design dramatically increases efficiency and allows the outdoor loudspeaker to produce more output using less energy.

  • Tracktrix Horn-Loaded Tweeter: For decades, Klipsch's proprietary Tractrix horn design has delivered high eficiency, low distortion, and superb dynamics. The 90° x 40° Tractrix Horn geometry utilized in the KHO-7 provides exceptional efficiency and detail, while focusing the sound on your listening space.
  • 5.25" Poly Cone Woofer: With a 5.25” poly cone woofer and a Tractrix horn-loaded 1" silk dome compression driver, the KHO-7 provides exceptional sound for your outdoor space using the same design principles as Klipsch high performance home theater and professional cinema speakers.

Bass Reflex Port: The Klipsch KHO-7 features a front-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. A vinyl port plug is included for installations that may expose the speaker's bass port to extremely wet conditions. Use of the port plug will result in a slight loss in the bass frequencies, but will make the speakers more weather-resistant and ensure a long and trouble-free life.

Binding Post Terminals: Each speaker is equipped with a set of 5-way binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, or banana plugs (single or dual). Plastic inserts will need to be removed from the binding post terminals to accommodate banana plugs. Two 50' lengths of 18AWG speaker wire are included.

Mounting Bracket: Included with the KHO-7 speakers are C-style mounting brackets that provide tremendous placement flexibility. The bracket is attached to the speaker with the supplied low profile knobs, which thread into the top and bottom of the cabinet. This allows the speaker to be angled to the left or right when mounted vertically, or up and down when mounted horizontally. The C-bracket has a 180-degree adjustment range.

  • Dimensions With Bracket: 6.75" (w) x 12.0" (h) x 8.375" (d)
  • Dimensions Without Bracket: 6.75" (w) x 11.0" (h) x 7.375" (d)

Note: Mounting screws are not included and sold separately at your local hardware store.

Placement Options: Many of the placement recommendations for indoor use also apply in outdoor applications. The most common difference is the desire or need to mount the speakers above ear level on a wall or under an overhang.

  • To achieve the best performance from KHO-7, place both speakers on the same wall facing the listening area and space them 6' to 15' apart.
  • For a higher quality stereo image, angle down, or toe-in the speakers toward the primary listening area.
  • Additional bass output will result if you place the speakers in a corner or near a wall; this provides greater bass coupling due to the additional reflected energy from the walls.

Customer Q&A

8 questions already asked

Q
Would these work well with the old Sonos Connect Amp (55W/C at 8 Ohms)?
[ Jon  Jun 27, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
Greetings Jon, and thank you for your question. Absolutely they will. They are 8ohm speakers rated for up to 75 watts, and they will get a good 55 watts from the older Sonos amp.
[ Thomas J.  Jun 27, 2022 ]  Staff
Q
Can these be placed directly on my uncovered deck instead of being mounted somewhere?
[ Mark F  Jun 13, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
Greetings Mark, and thank you for your question. They are rated for more severe weather conditions, and recommend using their included port plugs if they are going to be placed out in the open.
[ Thomas J.  Jun 14, 2022 ]  Staff
Q
the speakers i have now are mounted under patio cover they are already wired my question they are speakers that are wired only i'm not high tech will the klipsch work with this setup.?

Yes and they sound great,
[ KEN F  Apr 06, 2022 ]
A
If your current speakers are wired with speaker wire to an amp then yes these will work with your setup by just replacing these with your current speakers
[ WILLIAM  Apr 05, 2022 ]
A
yes, these should work great as a replacement to whatever wired speaker you had there before. these are fantastic speakers. good luck, enjoy
[ RUSSELL  Apr 05, 2022 ]
Q
What watt outdoor volume control would be best for these ?
[ Steve  Mar 12, 2022 ]

A
I have mine wired to the stereo in the house. Using the Bluetooth and volume control from my phone. It seems to work pretty good. They sound great
[ Rsp72  Mar 12, 2022 ]
A
I use a Sonos amp for 4
[ Carlos  Mar 12, 2022 ]
A
I am using a 120 watt amp and they sound great. No clipping or distortion. Very happy with them.
[ MICHAEL  Mar 12, 2022 ]
Q
Would 2 pairs of these(4 speakers) work with the Sonos Amp. I see they are 75W RMS, but that would put out 250W at 4 Ohms from the Sonos Amp. Thoughts?
[ BradS  Feb 14, 2022 ]
2 answers
A
Yes you can use a 125 amp with these speakers, you just can't crank it up to max, I use a 250 amp class A power with a cheap pair of Bose outdoor speakers with no issues.
[ Jim  Mar 08, 2022 ]
A
We do not recommend using these Klipsch speakers with the Sonos Amp. The amp outputs more power than those speakers should get. I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get a personal recommendation on a system that will work
[ Paul  Feb 23, 2022 ]  Staff
Q
Is the present stock "white" or "off white" (cream color)?
[ Joaquin  Jan 24, 2022 ]
5 answers
A
I purchased these in June of 2021 and the ones I received are off white - more of a cream color. GREAT SPEAKERS in general - especially for the price.
[ JAMIE  Jan 27, 2022 ]
A
Joaquin, My Klipsch KHO-7 speakers are mounted on a white, wooden porch ceiling, so I have a good comparison. The Klipsch are "off white" but minimally so. They are certainly not an eggshell color. Julian
[ Julian  Jan 25, 2022 ]
A
They are a off white light creamish. They sound great!
[ Rsp72  Jan 24, 2022 ]

Off white

Q
Are they paintable?
[ James  Jul 04, 2021 ]
3 answers
A
Several references re painting the Klipsch KHO-7s were found by Googling "are Klipsch KHO-7 speakers paintable?" A few of those even describe how to do it. I have not painted mine. Julian E.
[ Julian  Jul 04, 2021 ]
A
The exterior is plastic and the grill aluminum so it should be paintable. I believe krylon has a primer and paint specific for plastic.
[ Rick  Jul 04, 2021 ]
A
Yes, it says so right on the box.
[ Richard  Jul 04, 2021 ]
Q
Can 4 speakers be synced together?
[ Erik  Jun 15, 2021 ]
3 answers
A
I have not connected mine yet but I plan on using a separate speaker switch for connecting my receiver to a few sets of speakers. So I would advise you also to use a switching device so you came separate the 4 speakers and connect them together but protecting them at the same time. I hope this was helpful.
[ BARRY  Jun 22, 2021 ]
A
These are not wireless speakers. They are standard (old style) speakers which are wired so they would be sync'd naturally when wired. They're 8 ohm speakers so if you wire them in parallel (the usual way), the total resistance will drop to 4 ohms per channel. Check to see that's not a problem for your amp. It usually isn't but good to check first.
[ BRUCE  Jun 22, 2021 ]
A
With the right gear, it is possible to have multiple speakers like this play together. We have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who can help you build a system that will work.
