1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The Klipsch RP-5000F floorstanding
loudspeaker features a 1" Titanium LTS Vented Tweeter with a Hybrid Tractrix
Horn for exceptional high frequency response, detail, and dispersion. Klipsch
proprietary Tractrix horn-loaded technology ensures high-frequency energy of the
RP-5000F floorstanding speakers are aimed directly at the listener and reduces
unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls -
meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.
- Titanium LTS Vented Tweeter: The titanium tweeter
diaphragm's light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of
aluminum, polymer or silk tweeters. A vented tweeter design reduces standing
waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency
reproduction. Klipsch award-winning Linear Travel Suspension technology
leverages a piston motion of the titanium diaphragm that lowers distortion
and delivers real-to-life sound. A ceramic magnet housing provides premium
- Hybrid Tractrix Horn Technology: This redesigned 90°x90°
Hybrid 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 Hybrid Tractrix Horn's compressed molded
silicon face adds high frequency damping to reduce harshness and horn
resonance for a smoother frequency response with improved detail - creating
a clean and natural sound. Klipsch also utilizes computer modeled phase
plugs that act as a mechanical filter to further ensure a smooth, flat
frequency response while protecting the tweeter from damage.
Dual 5.25" Cerametallic Woofers: The RP-5000F floorstanding loudspeaker
utilizes two 5.25" Klipsch Proprietary Cerametallic woofers. Cerametallic consists of
extremely light, rigid materials that can hold shape while being able to deliver
lower frequencies with maximum efficiency. The Klipsch Cerametallic cone is
matted to a dual-layer, copper-wound voice coil for exceptional conductivity.
The 5.25" woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that's secured
to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion.
Rear Tractrix Port: The rear Tractrix port of the RP-5000F
floorstanding loudspeaker is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofer, creating
ideal airflow with minimal distortion and turbulence even at the lowest
frequencies. Klipsch Tractrix ports have custom designed inner flares that help
reduce air turbulence entering the port. Less turbulent air helps reduce port
noise for cleaner, more powerful bass.
MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch RP-5000F floorstanding 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. The MDF enclosure also features a satin painted baffle
with a scratch resistant design for an elegant look without the grille.
Acoustically Transparent Grille: The Klipsch RP-5000F
floorstanding loudspeaker comes with a removable, black cloth grille that is
magnetic and acoustically transparent. This strong magnetic grille provides
protection and a sleek aesthetic look to compliment your home's decor.
Dual Binding Posts: The Klipsch RP-5000F is fitted with two
sets of sturdy binding posts allowing to bi-amp or bi-wire the floorstanding
loudspeaker. These binding posts 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.
- 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.
Note: If you decide to bi-wire or bi-amp, you must remove
the jumpers between the terminal posts (failure to do this could result in
damage to your amplifier and loudspeakers).
Cast Aluminum Stabilizer Feet: The Klipsch floorstanding
loudspeaker includes pre-installed, cast-aluminum stabilizer feet with rubber pads for safe placement on hardwood, tile, laminate, and vinyl flooring. The cast aluminum feet are mechanically designed to minimize
surface area in contact with the floor, decoupling the speaker for faster,
tighter low frequencies and more detail. No carpet spikes are included, and the speaker will not
support optional carpet spikes or other type of feet.
Note: Do not remove the stabilizer feet. The Klipsch
floorstanding loudspeaker should not be used without the stabilizer feet due
to stability and sound performance reasons.
Application & Placement: The Klipsch RP-5000F floorstanding
loudspeaker can be used in a dedicated stereo application or in a home theater
application as front and/or rear speakers.
- Front Placement: For optimum performance in a stereo
application or as front speakers in a home theater application, Klipsch
suggests placing the loudspeakers 6' to 15' apart. They may also be toed-in
slightly for better stereo imaging. The listening position should be about 1
to 1.5x the distance separating the speakers.
- Rear Placement: When used as surround speakers in a
home theater setup, the speakers should be placed on the walls directly
adjacent to the listening position. Another option would be on the wall
behind the listening position.
Reference Premiere Series: The Klipsch Reference Premiere
series utilizes a redesigned hybrid 90°x90°
Tractrix Horn, a vented LTS titanium tweeter, Cerametallic woofer construction,
and Tractrix geometry port technology for sound that will envelope you and blow
you away. The Reference Premiere series by Klipsch consists of a variety of
floorstanding, bookshelf, center, and surround speakers (all sold separately).
