Features

1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The R-34C center channel loudspeaker features Klipsch's proprietary Tractrix Horn technology mated with a 1" aluminum LTS tweeter, for impressive high-end response and greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics.

  • 90°x90° Tractrix Horn: The square Tractrix Horn delivers a 90° (w) x 90° (h) dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage. Klipsch exclusive Tractrix horn technology ensures that the speaker's high frequency energy is aimed at the listener and reduces artificial reverb or filtering caused by indirect sound bouncing off of walls. Using this proprietary focused technology provides clarity, dynamics, and detail for your movies and music
  • LTS (Linear Travel Suspension): Behind each horn lies a 1.0" tweeter with a linear travel suspension. Klipsch exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performances. In addition, Using Kapton (an extremely light and rigid material) in the tweeter suspension provides high efficiency and improve resolution and detail.

Quad 3.5" Copper-Spun IMG Woofers: The Klipsch R-34C center channel speaker houses four 3.5" Copper-Spun IMG woofers. The Copper-Spun IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) woofers are exceptionally light while being extremely rigid - providing remarkable low frequency response, with minimal cone breakup and distortion.

Dual Tractrix Ports: The dual front-firing Tractrix ports are perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion or turbulence even at the lowest frequencies. The front-firing ports allow the R-34C center speaker to be placed right against your wall or entertainment system without effecting the bass response.

MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch R-34C center channel speaker features a MDF cabinet with a scratch-resistant, textured wood grain vinyl that seamlessly integrates into almost any room or decor. The enclosure's reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy.

Acoustically Transparent Grille: The Klipsch R-34C center channel speaker comes with a removable, black cloth grille that is magnetic and acoustically transparent.

Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference series center channel speaker is fitted with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-lugs and bare wire (up to 10AWG). Two plastic caps will need to be removed to use banana plugs.

Mounting & Placement Options: The Klipsch R-34C can be placed on a speaker stand, TV stand, or shelf. It can also be wall-mounted. The center channel speaker should be placed as close to the screen as possible, preferably directly on top of or below the screen.

  • Rubber Feet: The center 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 0.3125" to the overall height of the speaker.
  • Keyhole Slot: The Klipsch Reference series center channel speaker feature dual keyhole slots on the back of the cabinet for wall-mounting the speaker without any additional wall-mount bracket (mounting screws not supplied).

Reference Series: The Klipsch Reference series consists of four floorstanding speakers (R-610F/R-620F/R-820F/R-625FA), two bookshelf speakers (R-41/R-51M), two center channel speakers (R-34C/R-52C), and one Dolby Atmos speaker (R-41SA) - all sold separately. 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 Klipsch Reference series loudspeaker with one of Klipsch's powered subwoofers (sold separately).

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

Q
Which is better 25c or the 34c?
[ FRED S  May 16, 2020 ]

I have the 34C and the sound is crystal clear I'm more than happy I bought it.
[ Dennis  Jun 02, 2020 ]

I've heard both. And to be honest it was difficult to tell the difference as far as sound quality. I like the 34c because is slimmer. Longer from side to side, but definitely shorter as far as height. Even though they use smaller woofers. I was surprised as how good they sounded. The bass was good. Definitely a really good center channel speaker. I set up my Marantz A/V preamp LFE setting to LFE+Main so any low ends sounds that is sent to any of the others speakers is played also on the subwoofers. That way all the surround speakers and surround back speakers. Don't have to go too low on the bass frequency. With minor tweeking of the crossovers settings and level settings. It sounds awesome. Hope this helps.

Q
What are all the supported audio encoding formats this soundbar supports?

The R-34C is not a sound bar , it's a Home Theater Center Channel Speaker .
[ JOSEPH  Dec 28, 2019 ]
A
I purchased the speaker and it is my Center Channel speaker as part of my home theater setup. It connects to the center Channel output my receiver. The actual audio signal goes from the receiver to the speaker. Which is to say that it is the receiver that would support audio formats.
[ RON  Dec 28, 2019 ]

It will support any that your receiver puts out. It is simply connected to your receiver by speaker wire. It is my center channel on a 7.1 setup with a Denon AVR-X 1500H AV receiver. It performs flawlessly.
