About the Klipsch Reference R-41SA

Take your Klipsch home theater to a higher level

Maybe you've heard about Dolby Atmos. It's an expanded type of surround sound that enhances your movie soundtracks by accurately positioning sounds all around you — including above you. If you've got Reference tower speakers, the add-on R-41SA pair lets you add "height" sound effects to movie night. 

Take your Klipsch home theater to a higher level

Maybe you've heard about Dolby Atmos. It's an expanded type of surround sound that enhances your movie soundtracks by accurately positioning sounds all around you — including above you. If you've got Reference tower speakers, the add-on R-41SA pair lets you add "height" sound effects to movie night. 

How do they work?

Each R-14SA speaker has a 4" woofer and a horn-loaded tweeter on its top baffle. These drivers are angled to reflect sound off of your ceiling and back down to your listening position. These compact add-on modules sit right on top of your existing Reference speakers. Use a pair with your front speakers for a "5.1.2" system. With a compatible receiver, you can even add another pair to the rear surround speakers for an even more enveloping experience.

The R-41SA can also be wall-mounted for use as regular surround speakers.

Does your receiver have what it takes?

You'll need a home theater receiver with Dolby Atmos in order to get enhanced surround sound with these speakers.

Will add another layer to your home theater experience, but isn't like your surround speakers that pinpoint sound effects. I can tell the difference adding these versus not having them...but I think a better Atmos setup would have ceiling speakers. Caught these on sale and open box items, so the cost was great. Have them with matching Klipsch Reference series speakers set on top of the L/R in a 5.1.2 setup. I would recommend these speakers if you want to add a more enveloping sound to your movies without drilling holes in your ceiling and wires through the walls.

It feels like you're there

Crutchfield customer from Richardson, TX on 4/2/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I finally upgrade my A/V Receiver from a 7.1 Channel to a 9.2 Channel that featured Dolby Atmos. Knowing i had this new feature i had to order these Klipsch Reference R-41SA. After the install of my new Receiver to my Klipsch home theater system I heard the power, detail, and emotion modified greatly. My home doesn't have ceiling speakers although with the R-41SA have you believe you do as the sound comes over your head. The crossovers in the R-41SA have been designed to make it feel that 3-Dimensional. The R-41SA's rest beautifully on top of my RF-82 Towers. I am soon going to purchase a second pair and have them set on top of my Klipsch RB-61's. i'll going from a 7.2.2 to a 5.2.4 without having to alter my home with ceiling speakers. The Klipsch Reference R-41SA are a great investment. I would recommend these to anyone.

Pros: Convenient as they can be placed anywhere

Cons: Price, but i'm always looking for the bargain.

Crutchfield customer from Webster, NY on 2/19/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Awesome sound, trivial setup. I added these ATMOS speakers to a Yamaha TSR 7810, along with a Klipsch center channel (R52C) and bookshelf front speakers (RP160M) The setup in the Yamaha was a single click. Sound is awesome, much better than the smaller (non ATMOS) presence speakers I was using. These are reasonably big, so you'll need a decent sized speaker if you're locating them on top of existing sperakers

Fabulous... My Klipsch system was great, but I always felt that I needed more high-end, especially in the front channel. The R-41SA completely solved my issue and the system now is just flat out wicked. I got all the strings I need now.

Great in height speakers

James from Randall, MN on 9/30/2018

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

I am giving them 5 stars because they sit atop my large Klipsch L & R Main speakers, and allowed me height speakers without mounting speakers high on the walls or a complicated ceiling installation. I know this because my rear are ceiling mounted and these klipsch dolby-atmos speakers have given another dimension to my music and home theater experience.

Pros: Easy installation.

Cons: Not true in height, but reflective.

Application & Mounting Options: In addition to delivering overhead sound effects as a Dolby Atmos speaker topper for Klipsch and other brands of floorstanding and bookshelf loudspeakers; the R-41SA is designed to be wall-mounted as a front, rear or side elevation speaker; or as a versatile side or rear surround sound speaker. There is a keyhole slot on the back, as well as four integrated rubber feet on the bottom of the speaker.

  • Dolby Atmos "Topper" Dimensions: Keep in mind the R-41SA's dimensions when using it as a Dolby Atmos topper, as it must be able to rest on top of your floorstanding or bookshelf loudspeaker. It measures 5.75" (w) x 7.125" (h) x 12.75" (d).
  • Wall-Mount Dimensions: When wall mounted, the R-41SA measures 5.75" (w) x 12.75" (h) x 7.125" (d).

1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The R-41SA Dolby Atmos speaker 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: Klipsch exclusive 90º x 90º Tractrix horn technology ensures that the R-41SA high frequency energy is aimed at the ceiling and bounces down to the listener with laser precision - all while reducing artificial reverb or filtering.

MDF Cabinet: The R-41SA Dolby Atmos 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.

Drummer helped me today, but I am confident after several purchases now the whole company has the same helpful attitude - and it seems genuine, not some phony mandated customer policy they are forced to follow - Crutchfield is the real deal! As far as the speakers, they match the rest of my system and Klipsch quality is also the real deal! [ David  Sep 17, 2018 ]

Q
CAN YOU MOUNT THIS SPEAKER ON THE CEILING FACING DOWN?
[ C_Innova  Apr 03, 2019 ]
5 answers
A
Anything is possible but my question to you is, why? For one these may look small but they are heavy. Second if you are using them as Atmos speakers and using them correctly according to Dolby Atmos Laboratories recommendations then there is no need because they project sound off the ceiling back down to the listening area. I have these and they do exactly as they were made to do and sound great.
[ Curtis  Apr 14, 2019 ]
A
I don't think it would be a good idea, these speakers are fairly heavy and only have a single keyhole slot on the bottom, I imagine they would rattle unless you modified them for a firmer mount.
[ David  Apr 05, 2019 ]
A
possibly do a ceiling mount..extra work, i have them on a wall shelf setting by bose 301's works great less headache..use wire channeling to neatly hide speaker wires....
[ william  Apr 04, 2019 ]
A
I would not recommend that simply because of the weight of the speakers.
[ DAVID  Apr 03, 2019 ]
A
I suppose you could, but they're quite heavy, and could hurt someone badly if they fell
[ David  Apr 03, 2019 ]
Q
What is the crossover setting I should use for this speaker? I'd like to go with 80Hz if it allows. Right now I use 100Hz just to be safe. Looked into the specs on Klipsch website and it doesn't have the lower range of Hz capability of this speaker. Thank you.
[ Tintin  Feb 17, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
First of all these speakers have 4 inch woofs,that dont produce deep bass......so be safe with 100Hz. Or go with your receivers crossover setting.ENJOY.....and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.
[ LUIS A  Feb 20, 2019 ]
A
I have mine on 100.
[ Connie  Feb 19, 2019 ]
A
The frequency response for this speaker is 80 Hz to 21kHz, however the filter cutoff frequency is 4.2 kHz at the upper range. Therefore, if the speaker performs exactly to spec, you could use a crossover setting of 80Hz.
[ Albert  Feb 19, 2019 ]
Q
cant place them in front. Will I get the same effect if I use them as my surrounds to the left and right of my seating or in the back? 7.1 setuo
[ JPETRO  Jan 25, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
I am assuming your going to wall mount these as "surrounds"? If i am correct then you can use these in that manner however these type of speakers will be just that, surround, as you stated 7.1 which will be work. According to Dolby Laboratories the Dolby Atmos enabled speaker setup, which you can find several articals online, state that these type of speakers should be mounted in front at the left and right position preferably on top of the floor speakers firing upward for proper Atmos effect. Then your speaker configuration would be 5.1.2 assuming you have fronts, rears, center & subwoofer. Otherwise your setup of 7.1 is just 7.1 surround which you will loose the Atmos effect. I have these speakers setup in the 5.1.2 configuration as mentioned above and I love it. You do get that direct overhead Atmos effect which you would not get with them being mounted as surrounds.
[ Curtis  Jan 25, 2019 ]
A
I purchased these for Atmos but they can be used as surrounds for your setup. These should give you clearer highs as they are meant to project sound. Hope this helps.
[ Josue  Jan 25, 2019 ]
A
I would think they would work fine for what you want to do, could always call crutchfield and ask advisor but I think they will tell you the same thing, but does not hurt to ask they are very knowledgeable, I don't want to mislead you
[ Casey  Jan 25, 2019 ]
A
I have these on top of my front mains, use them in a 5.1.2 setup, wonderful speakers, does make a difference, highly recommend, if receiver is capable of running these in that setup you will not be disappointed, hope that answers your question
[ Casey  Jan 25, 2019 ]
