5.25" Copper-Spun IMG Woofer: The Klipsch R-15M
bookshelf speaker is outfitted with a single 5.25" Copper-Spun IMG
woofer. The Copper-Spun IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) woofer is exceptionally light
while being extremely rigid - providing remarkable low frequency response, with
minimal cone breakup and distortion.
Flared Port: The Klipsch Reference series bookshelf speaker features a
rear-firing port that is perfectly matched to the cabinet and drivers. The port
is precisely flared to minimize turbulence even at the lowest frequencies.
MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch R-15M bookshelf speaker features a MDF
cabinet with a brushed polymer veneer black finish that seamlessly integrates
into almost any room or decor. MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is utilized
because of its damping characteristics for natural, uncolored sound without
unwanted vibration and distortion.

comes with a removable, black cloth grille that is acoustically transparent.
5-Way Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference series bookshelf speaker is
fitted with sturdy 5-way binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many

Mounting Options: The Klipsch R-15M can be placed on a
speaker stand, bookshelf, table, or other flat surface. The bookshelf loudspeaker comes with self-adhesive
rubber feet to secure the speaker in place and prevent any damage to your
stand's or shelf's surface. The rubber feet add approximately 0.25" to the
height of the speaker.
Note: The R-15M bookshelf speaker does not include a keyhole slot
to wall-mount the speaker. Nor, does it feature a
threaded insert to wall-mount the speaker using an optional wall-mount bracket.
Placement: For optimum performance, Klipsch suggests placing
the bookshelf speakers 6' to 15' apart. They may also be toed-in slightly for
better stereo imaging. The listening position should be about 1 to 1.5x the
distance separating the speakers.
Reference Series: The Klipsch Reference series consists of
three floorstanding speakers (R-24F/R-26F/R-28F),
two bookshelf speakers (R-14M/R-15M),
one center channel speaker (R-25C),
and one surround speaker (R-14S).
The Klipsch Reference series line-up of loudspeakers sound great in stereo and
home theater applications.
Optional Powered Sub: For bigger & deeper bass response, pair the
R-15M bookshelf speaker with one of Klipsch's powered subwoofers (sold
separately - see Accessories Tab).
