About the Klipsch R-1650-W

Get great sound without sacrificing premium floor space. The Klipsch® R-1650-W features a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer for great mids and bass, plus a 1" dome tweeter for clear highs. You can mount the R-1650-W in new or existing walls, so you can install it in places where you've always wanted music, but where conventional speakers may not be the best option. These speakers are ideal for kitchen, dining room and bedroom use. Plus they match beautifully with regular Klipsch speakers as part of a home theater system. Moisture resistance delivers more flexibility so the R-1650-W can even be used in the bathroom. And you can paint the grille to blend seamlessly into any room's décor.

Features

Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker employs a 6.5" polymer-cone woofer and a large motor structure for high sensitivity and strong bass output. A 1" polymer-dome tweeter distributes smooth, clear highs over a wide area. The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker brings dynamic acoustic performance to both home and commercial environments.

Basket/Frame: The R-1650-W 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 aluminum mesh grille is also paintable.

Spring-Clip Terminals: The Klipsch R-1650-W in-wall speaker features two spring-clip terminals which will accept either bare speaker wire or pin-connectors. The spring-clip speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 35 watts RMS (140 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 70 watts.

Mounting Options

Installation: The speaker requires a cutout of 8" (w) x 13" (h), with a mounting depth of 3". For existing construction, the speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.

Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Q
Can these speakers be installed behind the drywall or does the grille need to be exposed and still sound good, i.e. How badly would the sound be affected/muffled projecting thru 3/8 drywall?

I'm not and audio expert but believe the sound would be much better if speakers installed as designed. If you mount behind drywall should would be muffled and reverberate. Also if you every wanted to change speakers for upgrade that would be a nightmare.

I don't think any speaker will sound good behind/covered by drywall. I bought the mounting brackets and attached them to the studs before my drywall went up as this was new construction ( can also be mounted with existing construction). The speaker grills sit very flush and can be painted to match the wall if you want.They come in white.

the speakers were put in by a contractor when we did a remodel. I think that they just used common speaker wire

Q
Are the Klipsch R-1650 W in wall speakers 6 ohm stable?
[ Michael  Jan 10, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
The Klipsch R-1650-W are 8-ohm speakers which would present an 8-ohm load to your receiver or amplifier.
