Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST): The Klipsch
RP-240S delivers precise sonic detail through the careful positioning of two
Tractrix Horn loaded titanium tweeters and two 4" woofers. By aligning the two
horns at 90° with respect to each
other, along with the two woofers, the RP-240S smoothly covers a 180° horizontal arc, allowing maximum placement flexibility. This unique Wide
Dispersion Surround Technology delivers a new dimension of reality and
convenience, and produces a smooth, seamless broad distribution of sound, which
is the perfect vehicle for every surround format.
90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horns: A 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. These 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horns provide a
wider sweet spot while maintaining controlled directivity of the sound.
LTS Tweeters: Behind each Tractrix Horn lies a 1" titanium tweeter
with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound. The Linear Travel
Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
Cerametallic Woofers: The dual 4" woofers of the RP-240S
surround loudspeaker feature Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic
material. Made with an anodized aluminum, this cone is strong and dent
resistant. The anodizing process converts its inner and outer surfaces to
ceramic. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that
will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range The
4" woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.
Crossover Network: The Klipsch RP-240S surround speaker's
crossover network is constructed using extremely high-quality components
including top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an
air-core inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration. The
speaker's enhanced crossover frequencies (1700Hz) offer smoother on-axis and
Sealed MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch RP-240S employs an acoustic
suspension enclosure for tight accurate bass. The speaker's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing
to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound.
Magnetic Grille: The surround loudspeaker features a
removable magnetic low-diffraction grille which easily snaps into place over its
polymer front baffle.
Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-240S
is equipped 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-connectors, and bare wire.
Mounting Options: The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-240S offers
flexibility when mounting the speaker.
- Rubber Feet: The surround speaker comes supplied with
four self-adhesive rubber feet so you can sit the speakers on a stand or
shelf securely. The rubber feet add approximately 0.3125" to the height of
- Wall Mounting: The Klipsch surround speaker features a
single keyhole slot on the back of the cabinet for wall-mounting the speaker
without any additional wall-mount bracket (mounting screws not supplied).
There is also a 3/8" threaded insert on the back of the speaker for use with
3rd-party wall-mount brackets (sold separately).
Placement: The Klipsch Wide Dispersion Surround Technology
surround speakers in a typical 5.1-channel system can be mounted to side or rear
walls. It is recommended that the RSP-240S be mounted above the ear height of
seated listeners (between 5'-7' above the floor).
