With 125 watts of built-in amplifier power and sophisticated wireless technology on-board, the Klipsch's Reference Premiere RP-440WF floor-standing speaker delivers powerful, crystal-clear sound without the need for unsightly speaker wires running across your floor or under your carpet.

Each slender tower boasts four 4-1/2" woofers for tight, punchy lows and clear mids, plus Klipsch's signature 1" horn tweeter for crisp, extended, highs. The RP-440WF's dynamic, full-range performance makes it a great choice for both music and home theater systems.

Hear every detail

The brains behind every Klipsch Reference Premiere HD wireless speaker is the RP-HUB1 HD Control Center (required, sold separately). Using state-of-the-art WiSA™ wireless technology, this compact system hub transmits high-quality audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. That means that not a single detail is lost on the way to your speakers.

Klipsch RP-HUB1 HD control center wireless hub

The compact RP-HUB1 HD Control Center (sold separately) is the essential nerve center behind every Klipsch wireless home theater system.

How it works

Rather than using a traditional receiver or amplifier, you simply plug all of your source components — DVD or Blu-ray players, cable boxes, game consoles, and network music players — into the HD Control Center. Audio signals are streamed to the speakers wirelessly. The hub also receives Bluetooth® signals, so you can enjoy music from your compatible tablet or smartphone. A single button on the back of the speaker seamlessly pairs it to your HD Control Center for easy system setup.

You can start your system off with just a single pair of Klipsch wireless speakers for impressive stereo sound, then add to it to create a full-blown 7.2-channel home theater system. The Control Center's on-board Dolby® Digital and DTS® decoders ensure you'll hear rich, enveloping surround sound.

(One important heads-up: You will need AC power for the hub and each speaker in your system.)

Klipsch speaker technology for dynamic performance

Horn technology is one of Klipsch's long-standing hallmarks. Flared openings in the speaker cabinet project sound waves toward your listening area and prevent them from simply spilling out in all directions. This design reduces reflections that can color the sound, and boosts dynamics and efficiency for powerful, "front row" sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.

Klipsch's Hybrid Tractrix® horn features a circular throat around an advanced titanium diaphragm tweeter that transitions into a square 90º x 90º mouth. This unique shape provides a cleaner, more efficient transition of sound waves into your listening space. Compared to previous models, this horn design delivers a wider sweet spot with more precise placement of instruments and vocals. Even the horn material itself has been upgraded to molded silicone rubber that helps decrease resonance for smoother, warmer highs.

A horn that can enhance bass, too

Look around the back, and you'll see that instead of the conventional round port tube found on many speakers, Klipsch uses a Tractrix horn-shaped opening for smoother, more efficient airflow in and out of the cabinet. The resulting decrease in air turbulence makes for cleaner, more powerful bass with reduced port noise and low-frequency distortion.   

High-tech woofer design

The RP-440WF's Cerametallic™ woofers dish out smooth midrange and articulate, well-defined bass. Klipsch makes its cones out of specially treated aluminum that's strong yet lightweight to dampen and prevent distortion. With the Reference Premiere Series, Klipsch also gave these woofers newly developed titanium voice coil formers that allow more linear movement for enhanced efficiency, lower distortion, and extended low frequency response.

Product Research


High-Resolution Wireless Floorstanding Loudspeaker: The Klipsch RP-440WF high-resolution floorstanding loudspeaker is part of the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless speaker system. The Klipsch RP-440WF combines WiSa wireless speaker & audio technology with Klipsch's legendary audio & system design expertise for a high-performance wireless speaker.

Two-Way Driver System: The Klipsch RP-440WF high-resolution floorstanding loudspeaker utilizes a two-way driver design with a 1" Titanium LTS tweeter mated to a 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn and four 4.5" Cerametallic cone woofers with rubber surround for detailed, dynamic sound. The speaker features a tapered array crossover with a crossover frequency of 1.8kHz for the two upper woofers and a crossover frequency of 200Hz for the two lower woofers.

  • 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn: 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.
  • 1" Titanium LTS Tweeters: Behind the 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.
  • Four 4.5" Cerametallic Woofers: The four 4.5" woofers of the RP-440WF floorstanding loudspeaker features 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 4.5" woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.

Custom Designed Integrated Amplifiers: The Klipsch RP-440WF high-resolution floorstanding loudspeaker employs separate ultra-low noise amplifiers that are custom designed for each driver to maximize performance. Total amplifier power is 125W RMS and 250W Peak. By customizing each amplifier to each driver, Klipsch is able to extract every ounce of performance out of the loudspeaker. Each amplifier uses DSP (digital signal processing) so the speaker sounds great at any volume level without distortion

Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch RP-440WF employs a bass reflex enclosure with dual rear-firing Tractrix ports for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the all new redesigned bass port allows for the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet  for a clean, powerful low frequency response. The ported enclosure features a MDF cabinet finished with a premium wood-grain polymer veneer and a polymer front baffle. The speaker's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound.

  • MDF Plinth: The all new satin painted MDF plinth footer of the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless floor-standing speaker lends an acoustically sound, authoritative stance when placing the speaker on your wood, tile, or carpeted floors. The MDF plinth includes integrated rubber feet to protect your floors (no spike feet).
  • Magnetic Grille: The floor-standing loudspeaker features a removable magnetic low-diffraction grille which easily snaps into place over its polymer front baffle.

Reference Premiere HD Wireless System: The complete Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System consists of the RP-HUB1 HD Control Center, RP-440WF floorstanding speaker, RP-140WM bookshelf speaker, RP-440WC center-channel speaker, and RP-110WSW powered subwoofer (all sold separately). The floorstanding, bookshelf, and center-channel wireless speakers feature a two-way design and utilizes the same driver and horn technology as Klipsch's Reference Premiere series. The wireless powered subwoofer is modeled directly after the Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-110SW subwoofer. The Klipsch HD Control Center acts as the system's hub and directs audio wireless to each speaker. All of the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System products offer the convenience of WiSa wireless connectivity.

Requires HD Wireless Control Center: The Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System requires at least two RP-440WF floorstanding speakers or two RP-140WM bookshelf speakers, plus the Klipsch RP-HUB1 HD Control Center (sold separately). The Klipsch HD Control Center replaces complicated AV receivers and transmits audio wirelessly to the Reference Premiere HD Wireless System's speakers. The HD Control Center creates its own dedicated WiSa (Wireless Speaker & Audio) network independent of your home WiFi to eliminate dropouts and interference caused by bandwidth constraints within your home.

WiSa Wireless Technology: Through the use of state-of-the-art WiSa (Wireless Speaker & Audio) technology, the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System delivers unmatched wireless audio performance and ease-of-use. WiSa technology transmits 24-bit audio at sample rates up to 96kHz/second, with robust error recovery for uninterrupted listening enjoyment. With extremely low latency (<5mS) and negligible speaker-to-speaker delay, it offers flawless wired-quality performance and reliability. WiSa technology operates in the relatively unused 5.2 to 5.8 GHz UNII radio frequency spectrum, reliably transmitting uncompressed audio from 2ch stereo to 7.1ch surround, along with system configuration and calibration data. It has a range of approximately 30'.

Note: The floorstanding speaker has no speaker wire terminals on the back-panel to connect to a typical AV receiver. Instead, it has a built-in wireless receiver that functions only with the Klipsch RP-HUB1 HD Control Center (sold separately). The only hardwired connection the speaker will need is AC power via the included detachable AC power cord.

High Res 2.0-7.1ch Audio: The Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System can deliver 24-bit/96kHz audio in configurations ranging from 2ch stereo to 7.1ch surround sound, supporting both Dolby Digital Plus (7.1ch) & DTS (5.1ch). A pair of RP-440WF floorstanding speakers are ideal for a simple 2ch stereo setup. The RP-440WF can also be used as front, surround, and/or surround back speakers in a home theater application.

Simple Setup: The Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System gives you the ability to place speakers anywhere in your room without running speaker wire through walls or under carpet. Klipsch's proprietary Smart Speaker Selector provides a single-button solution on the rear of each speaker that seamlessly makes the connection to the HD Control Center without the need for speaker wire or a complicated AV receiver.

Firmware & Software Updates: Once you register the Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless System, Klipsch will offer free firmware & software upgrades which can be downloaded from their website, so you can stay current with the latest Klipsch technologies while expanding your system over time.

AC Power + Auto On/Off: The Klipsch RP-440WF high-resolution floorstanding loudspeaker will need to be plugged into an AC power outlet, along with any other Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless speakers you have in your system. The RP-440WF will turn on automatically when it senses a wireless audio signal and turn off (standby) automatically when there is no audio signal present. The speaker is exceptionally efficient whether it is on or in standby mode.

Can you make these your surround sounds in another system ?

Hello Dailyfi -- I can't speak for all WiSA hubs, but I have had success pairing & updating my Klipsch Reference Premiere HD Wireless components with the Axiim Q receiver. There is also some literature indicating the newer LG sets will be able to use these speakers without the Klipsch RP-HUB1.
[ ZACHARY  Sep 20, 2019 ]
I used them as part of the Klipsch Wisa setup, however, they will work with any othe Wisa based system. I will tell you, I had a 7.2 system using only Klipsch Wisa speakers and it worked great, however, if I didn't use the system daily, there was a chance some speakers would need to be repaired, but it wasn't a deal breaker. I loved the setup and nothing beats Klipsch.
[ Brian  Sep 16, 2019 ]
No. They require a Klipsch Wireless Hub in order to work.
[ James  Sep 16, 2019 ]
Unfortunately not , because it's a wireless system, every speaker has to be recognized by a hub in order to function. You still can have a surround system with Klipsch
[ Ha Ngoc  Sep 16, 2019 ]
Can I communicate those speakers to Yamaha cx A5000BL ? Or in any case Is it needed the RP HUB1 ?

Jacky, You can not get this to work without Klipsch wireless master control unit , But if you do buy it it sounds great and each speaker has it's own amp so room placement of speakers is simple .
[ CARLOS  May 24, 2016 ]
Short answer - I don't know for certain (but I seriously doubt it). fyi - heres some examples of HUB synching/trouble shooting. " Each time" you turn on the Klipsch HUB it scans for the Klipsch Wireless speakers and "synchs" to them (or not). The manual could stand some "beefing up" - for trouble shooting purposes. If theres a problem synching - Its helpful to "play" with the HUB menus - see what they do - and try trouble shooting. e.g. after the HUB has finished synching - go to menu>status>system status (shows up on TV screen). it will tell you what system configuration it has found (e.g. 5.1 or 5.1*, or something else) - then decide does what it displays on screen match reality? {5.1* means there's something wrong with the expected 5.1 configuration it found - you need to rescan) - {you could do a "speaker status - to attempt to clarify the error - see below}. If the scan configuration is not correct you need to go to menu>set up guide - have it rescan - then it will go through the speakers (one by one) and have each "beep" and "blink" (each speaker has an LED) - and the HUB will ask you to confirm (on screen menu) those speakers (i.e. front right, front left, center, subwoofer, side right, side left for my 5.1 configuration). Also after the first/initial scan & check of the "system status" - you can also go to menu>status>speaker status & the HUB menu will allow you to go through each speaker it has synched up with (and see which speakers it has/has not synched with.
[ RONNIE  May 24, 2016 ]
The hub is needed... It is the "communicator" via a video monitor.
[ michael  May 23, 2016 ]
Unfortunately you can not use the yamahas with these speakers. The system is proprietary and you must have the hub and klipsch wireless hd speakers.
