Horn Loaded Tweeter: The Klipsch RC-64 III features a newly
designed 1.75-inch titanium-diaphragm compression driver inside a molded rubber
square Tractrix Horn for smoother high-end response with greater extension,
enhanced imaging, and more powerful dynamics. The 6.25" square Tractrix Horn
delivers a 90° (w) x 90°
(h) dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.
- Tractrix Horn Tweeter: The Klipsch RC-64 III features a
professional-grade 1.75" titanium-diaphragm compression driver inside a
molded rubber square Tractrix Horn. The compression driver features a new
phase plug design to improve phase coherency at the throat of the horn,
resulting in improved sound pressure linearity at high frequencies.
- Molded Rubber Square Tractrix Horn: The redesigned
Tractrix Horn utilizes a circular horn throat paired to a square horn mouth
to further improve high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing
imaging and dynamics. The compressed molded rubber construction adds high
frequency damping to reduce harshness and improve detail. This creates the
cleanest, most natural sound possible.
Quadruple Cerametallic Woofers: The four 6.5" woofers of the
RC-64 III feature Klipsch's distinctive, copper-spun Cerametallic cones. Made
with an anodized aluminum, these cones are strong and dent resistant. The
anodizing process converts their inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. Each 6.5"
woofer feature a heavy-duty cast aluminum frame for resonant-free operation. In
addition, each woofer incorporates a dual shorting-ring magnet structure design
to eliminate modulation of the magnetic flux resulting in improved linearity of
cone movement. The 6.5" woofers also employ a rubber surround for added
durability. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that
will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range.
2.5-Way Crossover Network: The sophisticated 2.5-way crossover network
design of the RC-64 III attenuates the outer woofers output at higher
frequencies to minimize horizontal interference off-axis to the loudspeaker.
This maintains a wide and even sound distribution, ensuring each listener hears
the center channel information exactly as intended.
Dual Binding Posts: The speaker has two sets of binding
posts connected by jumpers. Using the dual binding posts, you can bi-amp or
bi-wire the speakers (make sure to remove the jumpers in this scenario). The
binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors,
spade-connectors, and bare wire (16AWG - 10AWG).
- Bi-Wiring: Bi-wiring can provide noticeable
improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate
speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier
(the upper set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the
lower set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers).
- Bi-Amping: Bi-amping allows you to use separate
amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for
greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your separate
amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.
MDF Sealed Enclosure: The enclosure features a MDF construction with a
beautiful furniture-grade wood veneer, plus improved internal cross-bracing to
minimize panel vibrations that can color sound. The acoustic suspension (sealed)
design of the enclosure aids in the speaker's accurate, detailed sound.
Note: Available in a Black Ash,
Natural Cherry, or Walnut finish.
Magnetic Grille: The RC-64 III center-channel loudspeaker
features a removable magnetic grille which easily snaps into place over its
cast-aluminum front baffle. The speaker can be used with or without its grille
Rubber Feet: The center channel speaker comes with six
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 height of each speaker.
Placement: The RC-64 III should be centered directly above
or below your video screen. If necessary, you can place the speaker on an
optional floor stand in front of and below the screen that elevates it to the
correct height. Ideally, however, the speaker's front baffle should be flush
with the front of the screen.
USA Made: The Klipsch Reference III loudspeaker is built to
order and handmade in the USA at Klipsch's manufacturing facility in Arkansas.
